March to the BorderSubmitted by JSM on Thu, 06/20/2013 - 12:24
I've been thinking about the drawbacks to a march on DC. Basically, that would be seen as an attack on the govt., and an excuse to disarm and imprison the marchers.
What we need is the moral high ground. It is the govt.'s duty to secure our border. Since it is not doing so, the people themselves have the right and duty to do so. So, we don't have an armed march to DC, we take our arms to the border where we have the right and duty to be to protect our country.
We need a common cause to unite as many as possible. Well, we have the TSA making our lives miserable if we want to travel, but we have open borders? Nobody likes illegal drugs. I know it seems like half the country thinks we should have open borders, but this is the issue that would probably garner the most sympathy if there were a confrontation between the govt. and people just trying to defend our country. If the govt. says we have no right to protect ourselves, and threatens those who are trying to protect our border, it loses the moral high ground. If we wanted to show the government we mean business about protecting ourselves, I would say this is the way to go. What say you?
