I am ready to take up arms.........I am indeed ready to take of arms. I don’t want to take up arms but I may be forced. It’s the last thing I want to do, I know the cost! But the solution gate is now so narrow.........is there any choice to save the Republic?
How many times are we hearing the words above daily?
Not take up arms against America, but to stop those of any political party that purposefully commit criminal acts under the guise of a government position, those that hold positions in government who are violating the United States Constitution. A solution available given by nature to “we the people” is stated in our Declaration of Independence when our freedom and lawful government is threatened...the question “are we there”?
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security
It appears a political, moral, and legal solution to the devastation occurring in America is no longer possible...I fear we have passed the point of no return in the political process and the reason is “we the people” have failed at the ballot box and allowed it to happen. Read below a few examples of problems which, sadly, may be seeds of a refreshed Declaration of Independence...and it may take more blood, if America is to survive as our Founding Fathers intended, in order for us to rid our beloved America from the scourge of personal and political cowardice, self-serving greed, and top to bottom corruption, namely:
Those politicians that fabricate, distort, deceive, committing every conceivable departure from honesty, decency, and common-sense to advance their personal agenda.
Those cowardly politicians that sit idle, cowering behind the blood of patriots, as they watch an anti-America president spend a once prosperous nation beyond bankruptcy into peril.
Those that turn their backs on warriors who have given everything - their lives, blood, bodies, and their families in defense of freedom...then call these warriors “Christian monsters”.
Those politicians and judges that sit on their hands, look the other way, and allow a “doctor” to kill babies who are living, after a botched abortion, or any abortion for that matter.
Those politicians that allow the Federal Drug Administration to sanction an abortion pill as “over the counter” accessible to a 15 year old girl...not to mention without a parent knowing.
Those politicians that legislate the immoral idea that a man and a man, a woman and a woman can be united and call it “marriage”.
Those politicians who condone and encourage dishonest, unprincipled, and subjective media; a media that ridicules a Christian athlete but lifts up a sports figure of immoral character.
Those politicians and judges that allow removal of God in our schools, politically correct history to replace “truth”, tolerance to replace moral law.
Those politicians that would fight the citizens they are sworn to protect by allowing and supporting terrorists, enemy aliens, and others sworn to butcher Americans, by allowing unfettered entry of the threat onto American soil.
Those politicians that deceive us by legislating more laws that distort and confuse effective laws already on the books...fail to enforce and abide by the US Constitution.
Those Judges that would signal a dishonorable “finger” to the US Constitution and legal standards, with in-your-face personal and unlawful rulings.
Those politicians that sit without blood curdling screams when the president of the United States appears before the Planned Parenthood butchers of babies, ending his speech with “God bless you”.
Those politicians that would commit citizen tax dollars to fund an organization that kills helpless babies such as Planned Parenthood.
Those politicians that commit unconscionable personal and official acts, lose their positions, reflect conditions that would send most penitent souls to a life as a hermit...but not a politician, they keep sneaking back, expecting moral sanity to reverse.
Those State governors and State legislatures that allow the federal government to run rough-shod over the US Constitution Tenth Amendment.
Those politicians that continue sending men and women to their death and destruction as “cannon fodder” for political purposes, and now manufacture legal threats against their Christian beliefs.
Those politicians failing to vigorously investigate attacks against America while allowing proclaimed enemies of America as members of the Executive Branch Staff, without so much as a whimper.
Those politicians allowing illegal persons free access to hospitalization, schools, food stamps, a place to live, unemployment compensation, funded by tax dollars.
Those politicians that continue sending billions of American dollars, trying to buy nations that are avowed enemies of America...rewarding them for killing our citizens.
Those politicians that allow a nation of laws to become a nation managed by a deranged, tyrannical, despotic Executive Branch of US Government protected by a Congress and Supreme Court.
Those politicians that simply disgrace and dishonor God, our Founding Fathers, Constitutional Principles, Freedom as declared in the Bill of Rights, and last but not least;
Those politicians that have never read the Declaration of Independence, or at best, have no idea what it means, or sacrificially takes, to ensure freedom and the cost of losing it.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same...." Ronald Reagan
No, I doubt that the Washington crowd does much more than protect their income.
Washington, DC and elected Democrats and appointed bureaucrats don't give a damn about the cauldron, as long as they can live like royalty, and take on more power to themselves.
Not just Democrats...
We need also to include the Lawyers and Judges that have allowed, encouraged, fashioned and produce the means for such corruption. Their un-Lawful "rulings" shall not go unpunished
God Bless you Col. Riley, I agree with you with all my heart. They have gone far beyond the infractions of the first revolution.
"SO HELP ME GOD!"

Col Riley, That is a question I have been asking myself for four years now.
Your list of Grievances and complaints is impressive, however I think there could be more added to it.
For example; Those politicians and Constitutional Congress that allow the current Executive administration to appoint our enemies to our highest offices of defense and security in the name of diversity and political-correctness, must be removed in order to protect and preserve the security and sovereignty of the free people and the nation.
See my post directly below here on PFA.
As a US Military Veteran myself I also swore that same oath to obey, preserve, and defend, the Constitution of The United States of America against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic, so help my GOD.
My answer to the question Colonel is YES SIR, I am now ready. I no longer have to question if it is necessary.
I am now 70 years old Colonel. I have several grand children and several great grand children, some of them are girls.
I absolutely refuse to allow this nation to be overtaken and sub sequentially ruled by these Muslim Islamic terrorists. I will never allow my Granddaughters to be subjected to the terrorism of the people that this administration has appointed to positions of power within our own Government.
WHY DON'T WE THE PEOPLE SET DOWN WITH THE MILITARY ( OUR CONGRESS & THE SENATE WILL NOT DO AS WE ASK, THEY VOTE AGAINST WE THE PEOPLE AT EVERY TURN ==== THEY COMMIT TREASON ) ===== SO IT IS TIME TO DO YOUR DUTY. THE COMMUNIST PARTY IS RUNNING OUR COUNTRY AND IS READY TO INSTALL THE WORLD ORDER ====== THE COMMUNIST WORLD ORDER ====== THEY MUST BE STOPPED AT ALL COST .
Clearly the time has come for divorcing the Socialist states. The differences between DC and real Americans has reached a point where it can be called irreconcilable. I read a lot of posts here waiting for others to finally come to the conclusion I have several years ago. Current political momentum clearly predicted where we are right now. Corruption is the key problem really. All organizations given enough time and power will become corrupt beyond redemption. Many of our so called issues are just simple corruption. Take abortion. No way abortion would be used as birth control if it was not deliberately built up into an issue. By keeping us fighting each other over things like abortion the whole scale theft, bribery and other wrong doings in DC go unnoticed. As such both parties stir up such issues to distract us from the fatal illness our nation is suffering.
In the mid 90s I belonged to a group called the Republic of Texas. We can learn many lessons from them. The mid 90s was a time of turmoil. Government agencies were uploading illegal files to computer users computers then kicking their doors down minutes later to arrest people for files THEY put on those computers. Waco and Ruby Ridge were just 2 of many such incidents. Most got little or no press. Some held out for a year or more. Some were simply executed. The Feds would then sweep it under the rug by calling those killed Neo-Nazis or cultists. As long as that was what they were labeled nobody cared. The fact is even if they were the worst sort of possible Neo-Nazi cult they were American citizens and deserved due process of law. Deserved the right of free speech and to live their lives however they saw fit no matter how unbecoming it is/was. In reality most of these groups had no such affiliations. They were likely just simple Patriots like us. Aside from the raids, we had Hillary Clinton sending the IRS after political and personal enemies. We had an extreme level of oppression going on. It was literally war on American Conservatives, especially Libertarians of any sort. As such some of the paranoia suffered by this group was quite justified.
The level of paranoia however got to the point where the group committed actions which caused the Republic of Texas to lose all credibility and to be labeled as nut cases. We were not, well most of us. There were a few who were doing stupid stuff like taking their license plates off and putting Republic of Texas plates on and expected cops to buy that. Predictably they got in a good bit of trouble with no gain for the cause. Action is necessary but stupid action makes you the friend of our enemies.
So first key thing is too remember the Feds are incompetent. Look at the Boston bombers, look at the 9-11 terrorists. These guys did everything but turn themselves into the FBI and STILL didn't get caught. While attracting attention is undesirable, do not allow your actions to make you paranoid. Act normally and the Feds will not notice you. I suspect each and every one of us here thinks they have a FBI file. I even filed a FOI once and the reply was they could not release my records because there was an ongoing investigation on me. That was 10 years ago. I suspect they have the digital equivalent of 5 pages on me and I have been in more than one wrong place at the wrong time. If I'm that low value then most of the rest of you can feel confident there is little or nothing on you. The government makes you FEEL like they are watching you intentionally as a sort of warfare against anybody who opposes it's actions. It also does so intentionally to help spot people who they feel are "up to something". The reality is the Feds catch almost nobody. People catch themselves, usually out of paranoia. You have more to worry about from the IRS than Federal agencies kicking your doors down. If you see me on the news, THEN start worry :)
Next actions should produce tangible movement toward universal goals. Popular support is necessary if we are to make real and lasting changes. Picking goals that only a segment of the population supports is an easy way to alienate a large segment of the population. The media will do everything they can to paint us monsters, already do. Look at what they have done to paint the Tea Party movement as racist and Christian extremists. So actions should be geared towards things that are difficult to misconstrue and will meet tolerance or approval by a large segment of the population. Banks, Federal agencies, especially the IRS, Federal policing agencies, especially the ATF and DEA are good targets. Individuals are bad targets. Especially if it can be construed as racist or religiously intolerant. The exception being Muslim groups that support Hamas and other terrorist groups. Damaging a Mosque will just be labeled as Christian fanaticism and garner bad publicity. Destroying the Mosque near ground zero however will be a very popular move. Taking out anything of Al Gore's at this time will be popular, especially if the note claiming it calls him a Corporatist. This will garner support on the Right and Left. As tempting as it is to go after politicians, at this point that will not help. Under no circumstances should Obama be targeted. Biden represents a group FAR worse and far more competent than Obama. Remember Obama is nothing but a puppet. Nothing good would come from harming him and a lot of bad things would happen. Let him discredit himself by his words and actions. Pressure him enough and he will say and do things that alienate the nation. Chicago targets are especially good as they will be taken personally by Obama and could get him to slip his leash. Be careful to not injure or kill people, ESPECIALLY innocents. This is VERY VERY CRITICAL. Kill one child and you've done more to harm our cause than Obama could do in 100 years.
Let the lightning rods like myself and a few others take the heat. You may think it is glamorous to have the Feds show up at your door, at least until they shoot your dogs, possible you and your family in the process. Let us say the things that need saying and take those risks. Those of us prepared for the consequences and who do not have children living at home. Do not enter into this lightly. This is the real deal. Playing Patriot can be fun, but the time for play is over. As Ben Franklin said we must hang together or surely we will all hang separately. The time for talk is over. Now is the time for doing.
I want to be on your team, Draciron. There is no longer any alternative and the time for talk is over.
Yesterday while in a resale shop, I came across the book "Masters of Deceit - What the communist bosses are doing to bring America to its knees" By J. Edgar Hoover. This book tells of the plan by the Marx/Lenin/Stalin Communists to bring world communism to America. There would be the "visible" on the ground groups via labor unions and any and all institutions of power and the underground communist do whatever it takes to gain and retain this power and bring the propaganda up through these institutions. There is NO DISSENT allowed period.
I have to say I am only on page 52 but I see that their plan is here their plan is being fully executed now.
Please consider going to Amazon.com and purchasing this book from a used bookseller because it has been their playbook since November 1917 for America.
Being a Catholic I cannot even begin to tell you how significant this date is because Mother Mary appeared to the 3 children (Lucia, Francisco & Jacinta) in Fatima, Portugal in May 1917. One of her messages to the children was to have Russia Consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary so that the evil and errors of Russia would not spread throughout the entire world. This was never done properly as the Pope was to do this concurrently with the Bishops throughout the world.
There may be hope because Pope Francis will now consecrate his Papacy to our Lady of Fatima. Perhaps this will be the divine intervention needed to change the hearts of the world and fight back at this enveloping evil that we see is completely emboldened.
