Thomas Jefferson On Revolution; You Don't Need "Permission"
Thomas Jefferson had this to say about what Americans need to do to maintain their liberty:
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. ... God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion; what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms." -- Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 1787
Does Anyone think Jefferson was kidding? An empty boast? Hey folks, this was one of our founding fathers! The guy who wrote the Declaration of Independence! Yeah, one of those founding fathers who King George vowed to hang! No, Jefferson wasn't kidding and it's time American citizens get off their placid ass and listened to him.
Do you need another Supreme Court decision that gives the federal government supreme power to make you buy anything? To do anything the government tells you to do?
How many of you have noted how many "edicts" and "presidential orders" Obama has issued lately. How many of you know enough about government to know that Obama has side-stepped our Constitution's checks and balances and named himself "emperor", deciding which laws he chooses to enforce and which ones he won't!
Defend our borders against illegal immigration? "No", says Obama.
Empower "Czars" to ignore Congress and act and spend tax payer dollars without Congressional Authority? Yes!
Declare "Executive Privilege" to cover up Fast and Furious? By all means!
Dole out taxpayer money to unions, Acorn, illegal Mexicans, Welfare Queens, campaign donors in order to win the vote? You bet!
Spend two million dollars in legal fees to completely seal off from public view every school, office or criminal record from his past? Why not?
Violate the Constitutional protection of separation of church and state by forcing religious organizations to pay for birth control pills and abortions? The Emperor wills it!
Confiscate the wealth of the successful and re-distribute it to the lazy sloth of the welfare crowds? Hey, anything that will win him a vote.
Grant "permanent victim hood" to those who drop out of school, ingest drugs, breed irresponsibly and demonize the successful? Also yes!
Guess what people! Washington and Jefferson and Franklin and Adams and Patrick Henry didn't ask permission to revolt....and you don't have to either! Not if you still believe in what our Founding Fathers believed in!
