The Declaration of Independence closes with these words: I have underlined a few. I know that many of us are on hard times right now. However, unless we want to use the guns and ammo that we have accumulated, or perhaps lose our lives, we better employ our fortunes. The time has passed for all of us normal people to be able to sit back and enjoy home and hearth, because the enemy is out working us. We attend to keeping our yards neat and our homes tidy, and to properly raising our children. The enemy has no children and lives in small sparsely furnished apartments. And there is the big middle. There are a lot of liberals there, but they are distracted too, and therefore not a threat. These are the ones we see around us...but they are a minor threat. If we patriots don't get off our *** and get working, we will lose. Make a plan and work it. Write checks EARLY to conservative campaigns. I may even get a second job just to send more money to my favored persons. And go to Tea Party meetings! The last one I went to had a fair portion of normal people, but had a couple of nuts who interrupted EVERY discussion to proclaim "nullification" (on the local level) as the cure to all ills. I noticed the "normals" were rolling their eyes at this crap and were getting ready to leave. So I stood up and told these two: "Nullification might be valid if you have a ten thousand people, or majority of the state legislature, but if you try it with a dozen, or even a hundred, all you will do is fill up the jail. When you can bring a hundred people to this meeting. we'll discuss it further. Until then, let's pressure the Congressman and Senator". We have GOT to quiet down the nut cases that cause first time visitors to never come back. BTW: I got long and loud applause for that...I guess a lot of other folks were tired of those two. :lol: I am never going to that meeting alone again! I will bring someone!
