The Revolution

I'd like to draw attention to a quote I've had at the bottom of the blog for a bit:

"But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations...This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution."
- John Adams (emphasis mine)

While I have to agree with Vanderboegh that events have progressed to what will very likely result in bloodshed, my thoughts have returned repeatedly to the quote above.

At what point did the Colonists, many of them "good" British subjects, suddenly realize that the Crown was truly no longer (if it ever had been) operating in their interests. How many years did it take for the reality to sink in that they truly were on their own. Their "betters" didn't give a shit about them, and in fact saw them only as pawns to be moved about the board and, in fact, sacrificed as the whim struck.

The recent marches show that the Revolution, as President Adams defined it, has already begun. It certainly has not progressed to an open shooting war....yet....however, the continued demonization and minimization of the complaints of MILLIONS of Americans is only pushing the country farther towards the abattoir. With each Democrat that screams RACISM!, and each Republican that chooses to pretend that their constituency will shut up and go away, those citizens that are taking to the streets to SCREAM their displeasure and defiance at the RANK TYRANNY of an out of control group of elitists are pushed further and further towards actions that go far beyond words. Actions that are completely irreversable.

And Ladies and Gentlemen (such as you are), there isn't much civility left past our current attempts at discourse. In the previous entry I have posted a video by a man who began blogging a couple of years ago when he saw the economy being fraudulently manipulated by the elite. Day after day, Karl Denninger has called for prosecution and reform to bring the economy to an honest and sustainable state. He has sent countless faxes to his representatives, he has sent countless signed petitions demanding redress of grievances. He has exhausted EVERY peaceful means available at his disposal to be heard. And yet, here we still sit. In the past, I've heard him get loud when truly evil acts were being perpetrated against investors and the American people, but I've never actually seen him lose it to this degree (and absolutely RIGHTFULLY so!). And frankly, he's not even apparently interested in flat out politics.

What does that tell you about other fellow Citizens who are beginning to awake from their slumber?

To those in our so-called Government who believe themselves to be in control of this flaming train wreck, proceed at your own risk. You serve, and even uttering that word with respect to your actions makes me nauseous, US. WE are the reason you sit in that cushy seat with your cushy pension on the way. WE allow YOU to be there. YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT! The time for "polite" (you'd call it "racist", or "manufactured") gatherings in public squares across the Nation may be coming to a close. And I warn you, the end of discourse brings the rise of only one thing, and it will mean blood.
