I have an interest in military history and am quite knowledgeable about the founding of this once great nation. I have noticed on many social network sites that some call Americans cowards, and worse, because We the People have not taken up arms against the tyrannical scum trashing the Constitution and trampling on our rights. The ones calling us names are the same ones who go along to get along so they don’t rouse the ire of anyone that espouses dictatorship. I would like to take the opportunity here to remind people of the early history of the disharmony between the colonists and the British Government. The early Americans, including Samuel and John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Nathan Hale, John Hancock, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and many more, considered themselves loyal British citizens well into the confrontation. The colonists began to really get upset when the British government began direct taxes on the colonies to pay for the French and Indian War. Many things happened in the escalation of bad feelings. British warships began stopping and searching all colonial ships, often impressing sailors into service in the British navy. The idea was to strangle the colonial economy in order to gain compliance with unjust taxation.
Many acts of civil disobedience occurred as more and more soldiers were sent to Boston to impose government will on the colonists. Groups calling themselves the Sons of Liberty sprang up in opposition. Smuggling was a common practice by the “extremists”, as they were labeled by government authorities. One thing led to another until one confrontation led to the government installed “governor” of Massachusetts firing on an angry mob, killing an unarmed 11 year old boy. One would think this would be enough to start the war but it wasn’t. Then a while later the Boston Massacre happened in which 5 unarmed colonists were shot to death by soldiers. This murder didn’t cause the war either although it did cause tensions to rise. The soldiers were put on trial in Boston, were defended by “extremist” firebrand John Adams, and were found not guilty of murder by a jury of Bostonians. Although the colonists were armed only with snowballs Adams got a decision of self defense from the jury. So many acts of tyranny were tolerated because the colonists wanted liberty not war and tried to gain the liberty by talking not shooting.
There were militia members stockpiling weapons, including cannons, in Concord, Massachusetts. In the early morning hours of April 19, 1775 General Gage sent nearly 800 soldiers out to confiscate the arms, disarm any colonists they found, and arrest “extremists” John Adams and John Hancock who were in Lexington at the time. The plan was discovered and the famous ride of Paul Revere began, along with a man named William Dawes. On the way they came across one of the militia leaders from Concord, who joined Revere and Dawes to help spread the warning. Approximately 75 patriots grabbed their rifles and shotguns and stood on Lexington Green to stop the nearly 800 soldiers. At one point during the face-off, “the shot heard ’round the world” was fired and about 15 minutes from the start of the face-off 8 colonists lay dead and the rest headed for the wood line. Confident the fight was over, the British moved on, only to find colonists lining both sides of the road ready to fight. It didn’t take long for the British to retreat, a retreat that turned into a headlong flight back to Boston through a shooting gallery of some 2400 fed-up colonists, and the war was on. My point is that We the People are not cowards, we just don’t relish a war in our streets.
The TEA Party protests and articles from “extremists” like myself are reminiscent of the early colonists, seeking a peaceful resolution from despots who want only blind obedience to tyranny from their “subjects”. The time is coming, however, when peaceful protest will not be an option. Barak obama and his minions in the regime and congress are determined to throw the Constitution out and confiscate guns from citizens in order to impose their dictatorship. They are plotting with un tyrants to bring foreign troops in to use as local law enforcement to combat “extremists” and “terrorists”. The “extremists” and “terrorists” they refer to are modern day patriots like myself who demand the government stop ruling by dictate and begin governing by the Constitution. Obama is also writing executive orders dictating mandatory gun confiscation, to be carried out by the un police forces he will bring in to do his dirty work because local police and the military won’t follow his illegal and despotic orders. Many people laugh at or deride me saying no one is going to take guns but I believe obama, feinstein, and the others are deadly serious in their threats.
I agree, it hasn’t happened, yet, but there was a point in colonial America when it hadn’t happened, yet, but it did happen and it will happen again. I believe it will happen very soon. I don’t believe we will see another election. Fuhrer obama is term-limited but has stated he will win the next election so I expect him to declare martial law as Gage did, move against armed patriots as Gage did, suspend the Constitution, and declare himself “president for life”, a life that will likely not last long when he does what he is saying he will do. I know he hasn’t said it as plainly as I just did but I listened to him in 2008 when he said he would destroy this nation. The words he used were hope and change, and fundamental transformation, but he was telling us he would turn this nation into an islamic dictatorship and he is well on his way.
Many patriots died during the first Revolutionary War and many will die in the one on the horizon. I may be among the dead because I will not surrender my firearms to anyone for any reason and will fight to the death against anyone trying to enforce the edict of fuhrer obama that I must be disarmed. Any un soldiers roaming our city streets to confiscate our guns will be targets as the redcoats were. Some will surrender as in Greenville, North Carolina last week but most of us will not!!!!! In also firmly believe those un foreigners will be facing our military in addition to local police and citizens. I know fuhrer obama has replaced top officers with self-serving drones but the soldiers they order to fire on citizens will refuse and may turn their weapons on the traitors in command.
American soldiers take an oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. I took the oath in December, 1968 and will honor it as long as I live, as I believe today’s soldiers will. They aren’t stupid and they know I am not the enemy of the Constitution because I demand politicians honor their oath to it. Fuhrer obama is also bringing in illegal alien gang members and moslem terrorists to help him do his dirty deeds. Once the shooting starts they will find patriots on every street, in every yard, and in every alley ready to fight for liberty. The leftist media and political ruling class think it will be easy to overcome us, just as the British thought. I am not under the illusion it will be easy but by obeying and following God we will win. I am a child of God, no weapon formed against me can prosper.
I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
