The 2nd Revolutionary War - when Bush declares martial lawSubmitted by beachbum721 on Sat, 02/16/2008 - 02:13
I was just thinking seriously recently and I wanted to post and share my thoughts on this. We all know what's at stake. We all know what our role in government is whenever the government is guilty of a long train of abuses. Today's government is making us suffer a series of abuses that, if continued, would arguably be as bad as, or worse than, those suffered by our forefathers, which caused them, with much regret, to pen the Declaration of Independence, and melt down churchbells into musketballs.
Seriously, we are fast approaching a time of decision very similar to what our Founders faced. Where do we, today, draw the line, and use our ultimate voice in government?
I say that moment for us, as a free people, would be if/when the government would attempt to impose martial law on our nation, and attempt to disarm us.
Seriously, should that action happen, I say let that be the last straw.
Then, we would have no other voice left but to assemble every citizens' militia in the nation and make war and win back our freedoms again, just as our forefathers were forced to.
