My Article I published on Friday, The Time To Throw Down Draws Near. Sooner Or Later It Is Going To Affect Us All, generated a good bit of discussion. I’m hoping that people will actually stand and fight now, and I am going to be interested in how many people show up for the protest on Sunday, August 1st.
But I would like to share with you a couple things that were sent to me and brought to my attention over the weekend. The first of which are a couple of quotes from our founding fathers:
“Duty to God, to ourselves, to Posterity, enforced by the cries of slaughtered innocents, have urged us to take up Arms in our Defense. Such a day as this was never before known, either to us or to our fathers.” Matthew Thornton: letter to the inhabitants of the Colony of New Hampshire – June 2, 1775
“There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free – if we mean to preserve inviolate these inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending – if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon, until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained – we must fight! – I repeat it sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts, is all that is left us!” Patrick Henry: speech to the Virginia Convention, March 23, 1775
I swear I have to be related to Patrick Henry somewhere down the line.
Perhaps the most important of the things brought to my attention this weekend was an excerpt from a self-defense book that one of my good friends has read:
The criteria that need to be met for people to turn to violence are well known:
1) Perceived justification – check – One more in a whole line of abuses, forced vaccination. It doesn’t matter if they’re by government or corporate at this point.
2) Lack of alternatives – check – in this case the alternative is to submit or potentially lose everything due to loss of income
3) Ability to carry out the violent acts – check – The gun is called an equalizer for a reason and the ubiquitous AR15 can both deliver a devastating amount of firepower in close quarters and accurately take out a target at 400 yards with a red dot sight.
The fourth, and final criteria, the one that I believe has been the one staying hands is:
4) Benefits outweigh the consequences. This ties into the lack of alternatives. When someone is going to lose everything they might decide to make someone else do the same.
So here we are at this moment in History. Everyone knows something is up, and evil it seems is making its play. Will You STAND?
Anyway I just wanted to share these few thoughts from the weekend with you.
