    This nation was founded by a group of people who were pushed too far and said, loudly and clearly, “I will not comply”.

    They were taxed until they could not afford to pay and then their properties were seized by the crown.

    They were removed from their homes. Told when they could work and when they couldn’t.

    Certain businesses were allowed to operate carte Blanche and others......not so much.

    The King’s men were on the take. The tax collectors were on the take. The councilmen and governors were on the take. The sheriffs upheld the law, for those that paid.

    The elite felt they could act with impunity, and they did.

    Except for the first paragraph I’m not talking about then, I’m talking about now. The main difference between now and then is that we the people finally had enough and began fighting for the right to be free.

    Today, in this country, the average, upper-middle class American lives a lifestyle better than a king in the 1700’s. Bums on the street have it better than the lower classes of the same time period.

    We are too accustomed to the comforts of this time period to realize that we are literally years, a decade at most, from totalitarianism and poverty the likes we haven’t seen here since the mid 1800’s.

    At what point does our supposed “silent majority” get off its ass and stop being silent?

    At what point do we say loudly and clearly “I will not comply”?

    When is enough....enough?

    Interesting question, being older, it's easier to say "turn the dogs loose, it's a great night for a hunt" but I know younger people have kids to raise and SO's to look after.
    I think todays generation would sooner have a semblance of normalcy even if it contains a certain amount of control. Sometimes I think they feel, if they just close their eyes, all the bad will just disappear.
    My generation maybe not so much. Pretty sure when my fathers generation was younger they had the stuff, maybe not against their own but definitely against foreign offenders.
    He was turned down several times for health reasons but he kept up until someone took him. He ended up with a medal for valor.
    Different people, different times.

    I look back often and could only hope, I would be half the man he was.

    This is the bazillion dollar question. To each his own is the answer. We’d need a long night by the fire pit to come upon a date.

    Yes we are doomed. When will it really collapse? When something threatens internet and suburbia.

    you know you live in some bad times when political correctness and [fake] locker room language Is bannable offense on an adult forum. It ain’t just The Left. Everyone is to blame for who and what we have become.

    maybe it’s a little sooner. It’s quite possible the negligent homicide of a lifelong criminal who points guns at pregnant lady bellies just might be the martyr that enables the dictators to roll in. I eagerly await the revolt. It would be honored to serve in war against liberals.

    That battle is being displayed now in urban areas. It will not be most of us due to fear. Fear of loosing the wealth obtained. Fear for our jobs. Fear for family. Just fear in general.

    What you see playing out in Portland, Seattle, and other places is simple. These are mostly young people with no assets to lose. No careers, no families, no allegiance to a nation, nor a blue or red party. The majority are not Antifa paid members but followers. It demonstrates those who have little will lead the fight not the people who have enjoyed a life of comforts. The young and poor will lead that battle.

    One can ask just a few questions and find the truth- are you willing to lose home and comforts for country and freedoms. Are you willing to do jail time to reject government control? Nope because government control is alive and well and less than a tenth of a percent has even contributed to making a stance of any type.

    Its not complicated if you do the work .....all these groups are being managed. You can start with REVCOM.US and follow that trail right to the Elders of the Weather Underground movement all the way up to the CIA. Above that your looking at the CFR which will then take you to major players in the Globalists.... above them you are looking at the original 13 families of the Illuminati.

    This is not some new thing that just started. Its been going on for a Loooooooooong time. People have been trying to get the word out since well before I was born.

    Like I've been saying a while, when the middle class gets pinched. Until then, not much will happen. Most of the money in this country is tied to the middle class. It's just spread out among more people. The wealthy are fewer in number with a lot of money individually. Collectively, the wealth of the nation is in the middle class. If something happens there, hold on. It will get bumpy.

    Some of the stupid ideas the Dem's are floating could be the catalyst for that. Taxing potential capital gains and property gains. Nationalizing 401k's. Rolling back the tax cuts. Giving the feds control over local zoning issues. Digital dollar.

    Lol, let us see how many ‘likes’ you get for that history lesson. Hemingway said it best when he stated you can kill forever but you’ll kill those that deserve it’.

    My only regret is that I have but little life left to give for my country.

    But I will do what I am able.

    Not likely to happen. The west coast (the left coast) is almost completely socialist. Kalifornia teeters on the edge of bankruptcy. The northeast is in the same condition. Conditioned refugees from these states are moving south and into the mid-west. I offer VA and NC as examples. Look at Durham, Orange and Wake counties here. In the west they are moving into states such as ID and NV. If you don't comply someone will squeal on you and they'll be there to take your firearms.

    I’m not so sure that fear is the right word. I am not afraid. There are generally four requirements for people to turn to violence:
    1) perceived justification
    2) lack of alternatives
    3) ability to carry it (violence) out
    4) benefits outweigh the consequences

    It is that last one that current is staying a lot of hands, I think. Act now and you’ll be seen as a one off madman. I’m not afraid to act. I’m not afraid to kill or die. It just accomplish much or anything at the moment.

    The product of generations of the wealth theft by the “elites” and Uncle Federal Reserve. They have nothing but debt and don’t see future prospects.

    No, for one back to what I said about being a one off. You may cause a lot of damage or even kill a lot of people but until the time is right it’s a Pyrrhic victory. Also, anyone who says “you’ll go to jail” is still thinking in terms of the legitimacy of the current system, as having just authority. I do not see the system as legitimate. If I were to act it would be with totality.

    Funny statement. Given the “country” as it is today under the current regime, I wouldn’t be willing to sacrifice for that. It lacks all the values it claims to have and be founded on.

    Two old farmers visiting. Every now and then a big Bulldog laying on the porch would raise his head, show his teeth and growl.
    One asked..What's that dog agrowlin at?
    Other..he's a settin ona nail.
    First oldster...Well why don't he git up and Move?
    Other...It ain't pokin him hard 'nough yit.

    We'll eventually get poked hard enough. I'm inclined to agree with @BudE 's above post.

    I view the country as its people - and only those who care about it at that. I view the regime as made up of people who do not care about the country.

    I have served my country, but I have never served my government. I have despised it since the day of my first rational political thought.

    I will willingly give all that I have to give for my country. The only thing I give my government is that which they take from me under threat of force.

    Well said. The only other way we do something is if things escalate quickly enough, without the thousand paper cuts, and there are no legal consequences for what happens.
