Taking Chance

What a difference 40 years can make. I remember vividly being in high school during Desert Storm, my history teacher asking the question:

"How do you think all of these stickers and ribbons in support of our troops make the Vietnam vets feel?" While on one hand he was proud to see his country finally salute its solders, he told us of his experience coming home to being spat on. This movie shows how we as Americans, every day, by simply acknowledging their existence, we pay them tribute. Watch this movie please and remember the fallen. (Read about Chance Phelps USMC here)

Thank you to all Airmen, Marines, Sailors and Soldiers. May you and your families find the peace you deserve.

Justified, Part 4

I have previously posted parts here, here, and here to little fanfare. I continue to relate my justification for descent. This will be link thick, read them, then come back.

Armed Citizen has an important essay here where he clarifies in layman's terms the pursuit of "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

Reverend Franz has some essential reading on "choices" here and here along with an IMPORTANT essay HERE

Now that you have absorbed these, if you have not yet, check out Anthony Martin's writings here

Caught up? Good. Lastly absorb knowledge here

Now you have a basis of my slightly off-center state of mind. I openly call for revolt, violent if necessary, against a tyrannical government. The reasons are posted above in detail. However I will attempt to simplify it here.

I am a husband and father first, patriot second, and follower of MY faith third. Sad as it is, I have been forced to have a discussion with those that I love and respect. The summary is that there is a time and place for how we act/react. If my hand is forced I will react in a way that causes my death, I am okay with that. May my sons grow strong in proud in the path they have been placed. On the brink of history to fight and kill, if needed, for Liberty. We have lost the vision of our Fathers, we have lost the visions of freedom. For pop culture we have forgotten the Spartans, William Wallace, Roland of Gilead, and Bob Lee Swagger. For purists we have ignored Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington. We have all been taught (fooled) to believe that there is hope in a two party system. There is none. I do not recognise the rule of man. I do not blindly follow a nationalistic flag. I believe the founding fathers and their ideals reign true.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

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.

Do not follow the idea that barack obama is to blame, nor that george w. bush is. Not even bill, or jimmy c. It is a system that has been growing for generations, stripping us of truth and justice.

Soon we stand and we fight. Train, prepare, and tell those that you do that you love them. Say good bye. Hope that I am wrong, fear that I am not.
