Lexington and Concord. The fight that never happened.Submitted by dabaez on Tue, 05/28/2013 - 15:52
IMAGINE. Lexington and Concord had never happened. Imagine if colonial Americans had argued that to stand up to the British armed with weapons at the Lexington Green was an act of insurrection detrimental in reestablishing peaceful relations with the mother country, and that if the patriots had simply surrendered their arms it would have been an isolated incident affecting only the Boston-land area and not the other colonies, like Katrina or the Boston bombing lock-down.
One of the clearest memories I have in high school is when one of my history teachers said she believed that Colonial Americans, “..didn’t have it that bad.” That they were a bunch of white men complaining about taxes. And maybe she was right. Maybe it would have been a passing event like Katrina where everything went back to normal after the initial chaos. Maybe this is why so many in the Continental Congress were upset with the Bostonians of Massachusetts.
Many of you will say, this is not 1775 that it is not that bad. Well what is it about illegal wars, torturing of prisoners, arming of blood thirsty drug cartels, entire city blocks of people being unconstitutionally forced from their homes at Katrina and Boston, indefinite detention, and the MURDER OF A 16 YEAR OLD AMERICAN BOY lead you to believe it isn't? Like Ron Paul said, we are well beyond what the Founders had to endure short of having armed soldiers quartered in our homes.
Many like to think of the Founding Fathers as some ominous blob of men who all held the exact same beliefs.. But they didn’t! They argued as bitterly as those of us within the liberty movement do today, and since the announcement of an armed march on Washington D.C. by Adam Kokesh many in the liberty movement have been at each others' throats as to whether such a march is prudent.
Now imagine if the patriots had never assembled at Lexington. Imagine if some within their ranks argued the same sentiment as those of us who oppose Adam’s march on D.C. and said that it was too dangerous to the movement and that they could instead argue their case in court and get their guns back by petitioning the king. Imagine that it failed. Imagine that the patriots had taken the “prudent” path and that the local authorities had passed a law banning guns in the Boston area but not the rest of the colonies. The American Revolution would have been dead in its tracks...
Well such a situation has already passed incrementally like a frog boiling to death in a slowly heated pot. We have been disarmed in areas such as California, Chicago (my home) and New York, and D.C. We are the modern day examples of this scenario painted out before you. Because remember.. Lexington & Concord was an isolated event like the Cook County, IL assault weapons ban. It was something that affected only the Boston-land area which is why many Americans were upset with Boston's "rash" behavior, even by those who were initially opposed to the crown. So don't be fooled. Those who think the Founding Fathers would of waited for a nation-wide gun ban are sorely mistaken. The disarming of Boston was a disarming of all Americans, so too is the disarming of Chicago and New York a disarming of America as well.
We are the lost battles of Lexington and Concord.
Many argue we are winning. Well many of those who say such things don’t live in these very places; these very ghettos. We live our lives day in and day out unable to peacefully walk our neighborhoods without threats from armed gang-bangers or being harassed by the police who act with impunity, while the politicians suck us dry through absurd laws and taxes.
Like Suzanna Hupp I do not have the time to wait years for a judicial ruling on “assault weapons” or open/concealed carry in Cook Country, IL. All it takes is one incident from now until then to have our world turned upside down by some criminal. And like Suzanna I would rather live with a felony offensive on my head than have my freedom or my family’s lives taken by some psycho. We have no hope since our very neighbors support these very politicians because they have been brainwashed with collectivism and socialism.
Those who oppose Adam’s march are like those Americans of 1775 who felt themselves disconnected with the plight of Boston. They are happy so long as they have THEIR guns and their rights, but to hell with Chicago or New York.
Let it be made crystal clear that the Feds don’t need an outright ban on all guns like in Australia. They can merely regulate guns to the point that all firearms of tactical significance would be outlawed; thus making possibility of armed resistance impossible. Imagine if the Afghans had fought the Soviets purely with bolt action rifles instead of Ak-47’s.
I foresee two outcomes. Either the march goes as planned and the D.C. police are ordered to stand down, or a few of those in the front of the march get arrested while the rest disperse and then we have a NATIONAL hearing on this issue in front of the Supreme Court. So it's a win-win situation.
I personally do not believe any provocateurs will be unleashed. As much as the globalists hate America they are not yet willing to kill the goose that laid the golden egg over guns, while the majority of Americans are still zoned out zombies who do nothing but watch football and allow the Feds to run their illegal wars. Why? Because America is their muscle in keeping all the other countries of the United Nations (and thus the world) in line. Remember they do not micromanage anything they simply organize the organizers and don’t want to lose their place in the world stage since even the globalist grip is not an absolute one.
So I ask you to remember those of us who live in Fascist-America and support Adam’s march on the District of Criminals. We need your help. Do not view it as marching on D.C. Instead view it as liberating Lexington and Concord!
For those of you who still are hesitant because of the possibility of danger remember that we shall not be the instigators of any violence, all who attend are to peacefully surrender or disperse if confronted. I sympathize with your apprehensions but do not let such a possibility lead you to cowardice.
Instead remember the brave words of Patrick Henry,
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, Give me liberty, or give me
Where those foresee apocalypse, I see hope. While I live let me have a country! A FREE country.
Your fellow brother and patriot from Chicago.
