I had a dream the other night that, well, I didn't understand. A figure walked in through the mist with flintlock in his hand. His clothes were torn and dirty as he stood there by my bed. He took off his three-cornered hat, and speaking low to me, he said: ''We fought a revolution to secure our liberty. We wrote the Constitution as a shield from tyranny. For future generations this legacy we gave, in this, the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. The freedoms we secured for you, we hoped you'd always keep. But tyrants labored endlessly, while your parents were asleep. Your freedoms gone, your courage lost, you're no more than a slave, in this, the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. You buy permits to travel and permits to own a gun, permits to start a business or to build a place for one. On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent, although you have no voice in saying how the money's spent. Your children must attend a school that doesn't educate. And your Christian values can't be taught according to the state. You read about the current news in a regulated press. And you pay a tax you do not owe to please the I.R.S. Your money is no longer made of silver nor of gold. You trade your wealth for paper, so your life can be controlled. You pay for crimes that make our nation turn from God in shame. You've taken Satan's number, you've traded in your name. You've given government control to those who'd do you harm, so they can burn down churches and seize the family farm, and keep our country deep in debt, put men of God in jail, harass your fellow countrymen while corrupted courts prevail. Your public servants don't uphold the solemn oaths they've sworn. And your daughters visit doctors so their children won't be born. Your leaders send artillery and guns to foreign shores and send your sons to slaughter fighting other people's wars. Can you regain the freedoms for which we fought and died? Or don't you have the courage or the faith to stand with pride? And are there no more values for which you'll fight to save? Or do you wish your children to live in fear and be a slave? O Sons of the Republic, arise, take a stand! Defend the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land! Preserve our Great Republic and each God-given right. And pray to God to keep the torch of freedom burning bright!'' As I awoke, he vanished in the mist from whence he came. His words were true, we are not free, but we have ourselves to blame. For even now as tyrants trample each God-given right, we only watch and tremble, too afraid to stand and fight. If he stood by your bedside in a dream while you're asleep and wondered what remains of the freedoms he fought to keep. What would be your answer if he called out from the grave, ''Is this still the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave?'' God bless you. And God bless this Republic.

If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

True!

We are prisoners of a corrupt Government that means to disassemble our Constitution and rewrite it to suit it's own agenda. The end result will likely be another revolution if we do not succeed in voting the Bastard out!

Any revolution that you mention would at the present time be fought by a very small, probably tiny minority of the people of the USA, and would quickly fail. Lots of people bitch (people love to bitch), but there's no chance that they'd take up arms and put their lives on the line for the things they bitch about.
Many people love to talk wildly about the actions that should be taken, but it's almost altogether just talk. Ranting and verbally raising hell is fun for a lot of people, but in the end they won't risk the measure of security they have.
The vast majority of people quietly strive to live as best they can in the conditions that exist. They don't want there to be trouble threatening the status quo.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).

Any such revolution without some sort of a majority support would be quickly squelched. And yes, most people like to talk the talk but would never walk the walk.

This indeed is so true, people need to make a stand! It will be a hard road to out vote the walfair crippled minded that live off the fat of the systeem. The lazy bastards will vote for the easy way. Generations have been raised up suckin the walfair TIT. Government has ruined lives through handouts, giveaways, Ect!!! The US Gov. has emasculated the American Indian!!!
Taken their Pride, Selfworth, buy giving handouts! Easyer to control people. Gonna Be damn hard to ween them off it.
How many of us has seen signs that say " Don't Feed The Bears (Wildlife) I bring this up because their so damn many walfair cases out their. We are feeding and handing out checks, the recipaints expect this each month! EXPECT!! DEMAND!! They seem to think it to be a RIGHT to your wallet!! FRAUD!!! annother subject.
I wish this would all finly come to a head, the mexicans, Rag Heads, Libs., the Gov. and the REAL AMERICANS.
You and I ("You", meaning ALL AMERICANS, no particular political party) must make a stand, The Constitution is for Americans protection!! First & Second Amendmints are our TEETH!

Hampster, your fuzzy little Critter is back!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got about 1/4 thru it before I figured out that it is a poem.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
