I firmly believe that Dr. Paul is our last peaceful chance.

The Constitution is a social contract giving We The People's consent to be governed. As soon as any government violates that contract it becomes null and void and it is our duty as patriots to reassert our natural rights by any means necessary.

All of the problems within the government are the result of We The People being derelict in our obligation and duty to enforce it. It bothers me greatly when people point to the many problems in our government and use that as a basis to argue against the virtues of the Constitution. The Constitution can not enforce itself, that is OUR job and we are not living up to our obligations. Freedom isn't free.

I recently saw that over 500,000 people signed a petition to "stop torturing" Bradley Manning. Great... but remember the government can ignore 500,000 just as easy as 1. Now 500k people scaling the fences is a different story all together. Or we can just carry flowers and walk through the streets.

Rough day...
