    When will we as righty's say enough is enough and pick up our arms? What will it take? I know that decision is different for everybody but I'm interested to see. Will it be when the goverment takes more in taxes that you take home? Or when they come for your guns? When they repeal the constitution, or when you start losing your rights?


    I believe this is a battle between good and evil. When are you going to join the fight?

    I'm already fighting this via words, thoughts, and leading by example.

    As I am a family man and a good American, violence is always at the very bottom of my list.

    Words, faxes , emails, phone calls to all your REPS and senators
    about all the BS bills they want to try and pass I give them my
    opinion and them some.
    If it comes to more aggressive tactics I will be ready for what ever it takes.

    Don’t you believe that election cycles can minimize the damage? The Constitution is ignored very frequently in this country by politicians but as long as this structure (term limits) is in place I feel somewhat confident that we can change course without revolution. I worry the most about the 1st Amendment not being used properly by the media and its effect on the intellectually lazy among us. I'm not saying that you shouldn't be legitimately pissed off (you’re not alone) but I’m not at that point yet. One last thought. Our country certainly has roots in armed rebellion but do you feel that given our current culture, we would be able to match what was necessary when under British rule? In other words a coordinated & violent effort to remove the problem when that breaking point is reached. I have my doubts.

    I often wounder if at some point our own military would not have a armed take over to restore the republic. Much like the movie XXX the State of the Union.
    I know that's just a move but anyone that has ever seen it can see where that could become a real possibility!!!
    If you have not seen it, see it.
    It's good entertainment but at the same time raises questions as to why it has already not happened?
    As to the OP question, I would take up arms as a last resort, but for now I write, fax and mail anyone and everyone who I feel has any ability to help.
    A armed revolution in this country by members of it's populace would be difficult to archive. Although in other countries small groups have done just that.
    I would like to see the Electoral College done away with and the popular vote used in its place.
    IMO that's how elections should be conducted. Truly let the peoples speak and chose.

    The problem I see is that there is no term limit for congress. We need term limits in place there so we don't have anymore Pelosi's, Kennedy's, etc. in office for their whole lives.

    I agree with the general consensus, that we should be activists who demand that our representatives act in our best interest and according to our desires and wants, not those of an elite that has its own interests at heart (I'm specifically avoiding using the term Democrat, because we have some Republicans that fill the bill) and sees the inhabitants of this country not as citizens, but as subjects.

    Still, with the constant and unrelenting march towards socialism, you have to wonder where the breaking point is...
