US Government declares martial law; What are you going to do?

DG.= Political Athiest = Anarchist 2010/05/21 05:58:15
I'm going to stand up to tyranny- no matter what it takes.
I'm not sure it would be such a bad thing to have a global government.
I think you're crazy, you've been watching too many Alex Jones shows
I think you have point, but I am not prepared and I'm not sure I could stand up to government.

We have never in our history been closer to a socialist state than we are at the moment. Every day brings more shock to our already frayed nerves as we watch our freedoms once taken for granted crumble right before our eyes.
In my youth I never thought the day would come that I would experience anything like the Great Depression, yet here we are at the door, and according to experts like Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital, Gerald Celente of The Trends Research Institute, and many others we haven't seen the real downfall yet. Experts everywhere warn of the devaluation of the dollar and hyperinflation in light of the recent travails of Greece, and look to Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Italy to see what will become of the Euro.

America now has in effect a future of Socialized Health care before us that was most definitely designed by hard core Socialists to lead to a single payer system, which will of course be controlled and doled out by government. But why is it suddenly so important for government to control every one's health care? There could have been so many other solutions to our health care problems than this extreme, and why didn't any Republicans offer any honest ideas that were for the true benefit of the people and not merely the corporations they bow to?

June of 2009 brought the probability of "Cap 'n Trade" which passed in Congress, an archaic back breaker of a tax to be levied on every single American created for the purpose of granting governments across the globe money and power beyond anything even imaginable and especially to a sovereign nation such as ours. There's talk again of it passing in the US Senate in spite of the debacle of damning emails made by CRU climatologists at East Anglia University that more than suggest global warming was nothing but a scam against the people of the world from the beginning.

There have been so many Acts, Bills, Laws and judicial decisions passed over the years to leave us helpless against big brother. Many of theses Acts, Laws, Bills and decisions are not even legal under the US Constitution . Many of the younger generations have actually been reared from grade school to fear the power held by our government institutions. The very fact that we have been raised from children to fear government is in and of itself more than enough evidence to show we are living under a tyrannical government and that is time to overturn the oppression.

Yet for the most part we go about our lives as though these things aren't really happening, maybe it's just too fantastic to believe. To do this we must reason that government is truly on our side and has no other motive than to protect and provide for us because; maybe they love us and in all reality most people couldn't figure out how to care for themselves without the wisdom of our "elected" officials. I mean what else could it possibly be that we would allow the IRS, the FDA, the EPA and any other government acronym you can name to strip us of our property, our inalienable rights, and the ability to make our own choices for ourselves? It couldn't be FEAR. Government isn't THAT good at intimidation.

We know we are at a cross roads, we know in our hearts that government doesn't care one iota about our health, education, property, personal financial standing, dietary needs or our freedoms any more than they care about the rights of enemy combatants or domestic terrorists. We know something could happen at any time; the dollar could go belly up, war with Iran, a new terrorist attack, an unforeseen deadly virus, a race riot, it could be any number of things. Many understand the pace at which we have been socialized since the turn of the 20th century, at hyper-speed including how we've been taught to fear everything since around the turn of the 21st. All this compounded with the enactment of the Patriot Act could not have been an accident. that Act has granted the U.S. government dictatorship style powers by suspending an Americans (not just Middle Easterners) inalienable rights to Habeas Corpus or the right to legal counsel in case of government suspicion or a national emergency. This kind of thing could not be further from the virtues that once made America famous and the "land of opportunity". It seems the only opportunity here anymore is for the criminals passing themselves off as elected officials and "leaders".

Because of these glaring discrepancies, We can be certain if things do not change in Washington in 2010 and even more so in 2012, we can say goodbye to America as we have always known it.

Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, author of The Gulag Archipelago wrote this about his experiences with his countrymen in Communist Russia:

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward."
— Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

Will you do the same when they declare a national emergency and come to take you and your family to a "safe place" at one of the many camps they already have prepared for the right event? Will you cower like Solzhenitsyn 's Russian counter-parts did? Is there any gumption left in the American soul, or are we so beaten down, so degraded by entertainment and propagandized news- sensationalism that we do not even care about basic freedom anymore. Are we merely satisfied to settle for whatever self gratification we like at the moment?
Do you love your freedom enough that you would fight to keep it?

I would like to think Americans will stand up and say NO when that day arrives, that Americans will band together in large groups in their respective areas for their own safety and strength.
What do you think you will you do? Waht are you doing right now to prepare?

    The way things are going, I don't think it will be too long before every American has to address this question.

    My family and I are as prepared as possible, but many are not. Our preparation will, without a doubt, make us targets for those who will not prepare; those who cannot see the truth through all the little freebies our government seduces them with. Will I stand up to tyranny and anarchy to protect my family? Absolutely.

    WE the people are by far the largest army in the world with an internet based command and control. One of the first things they will do is take down the internet and disrupt cell phones. I hope we can survive and prevail, you should have a plan. They have a serious potential attrition problem due to military resistance and our need to only kill one per armed citizen.

    I will fight and I will die before I see the nation I love transform itself into an imitation of a Middle East dictatorship. We are about one metaphorical inch from open revolt now; I don't know what event will eventually push us over the edge into revolution but I have a hunch that the time for such revolution is fast approaching. The opinion I get from my friends who have not yet awoken to the reality of the situation is something like, "What chance would you have against the U. S. military?" The answer of course is none. However, it is not all that clear cut if our military would obey illegal orders to open fire on their own countrymen, or to disarm them and herd them into internment camps. Moreover, whereas I wouyldn't stand a chance against our military several hundred thousand or a million others like me might have the effect of restoring this bastardized perversion of a republic to something more nearly like what our founders envisioned for us.

    The problem as I see it is, you have a large quantity of people demanding security and safety and in the same breath, grumbling about the size of the government. They can't have it both ways. People need to quit being such whiny a**holes and grow a set, take care of themselves and their own and be a good neighbor. That's ALL the security you need. Big government is big government. Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn is dead on right. He lived it and people need to pay attention.

    I will not live under tyrrany. I will fight against it until I draw my very last breath.

    Americans, we need to stand together and stand firm. We have one another and we have God. That is enough. We must stand for freedom, not just for ourselves but for the rest of the world.The USA is the last true bastion of freedom in the whole world. If we fail, so will the rest of the world.

    We will be fighting for liberty while the opposition fights for ideology. Only one of these is worth your very life, and our enemies know this. We will prevail, we always do.

    God Bless you all & God Bless America!

    I will never bow to either obama or Islam and I will stand ready to fight in any way that I am able to serve. I have nothing to lose because I have four wonderful grandkids to carry on into the future. I will live on as long as a single cell of mine survives in any individual on the planet!

    The problem that I see is that although we are all of one mind, we have no leaders. None whatsoever! Where are the Paul Revere's? The Nathan Hale's? The John Paul Jones's? It's like all of our representatives are mind controlled by the powerful obama!

    It's really something to behold isn't it?! We do have a few people in office that are pro freedom and liberty and anti-big gov., but not nearly enough.
    I do not believe we have free elections here anymore either, I am convinced the vote counting ballot boxes are rigged in many different ways, so I doubt we will ever get a large enough percentage of true patriots in offices in 2010 or 2012.

    That invokes the question about the Elite - in particular, their ability to manipulate and, more importantly, accurately determine the People's response. IMHO, with all their money, power and resources, I think they have ascertained exactly what the response will be and must feel confident that they will prevail. That means they are prepared to go the distance.... a distance that will push good people to the fullest extent of their actions. Also, I believe the plan to destroy our Republic includes a most severe economic / monetary crash. That means many will starve. A hungry man is an angry man. Therefore, I think it's going to get quite ugly.

    But I certainly hope you're right and I'm wrong. :-)

    I know Dan- Judging from what I've read about the>><< NWO>><<, and the astounding number of Democrats AND Republicans working "feverishly" toward it- what they've achieved- still need to achieve- and (will) achieve with the right "crisis", I KNOW you're right.
    There's not enough liberty minded candidates to even patch 5 holes in the bow, and we have about 100 that need immediate attention.

    the country is falling apart and being systematically deconstructed by globalist politicians, global Corporatist's and international bank-sters all at once- there is no way to get around this catastrophic mess without some major ugliness (that's why they've had this damned patriot act). They are SO far ahead of the average American sheep- it's pathetic.

    In a word, we're - SCREWED. Anyone who thinks other wise or still thinks there's an ounce of hope of going back to the way things used to be -or (ROTFLOL) "better"- is not living in reality- and anyone presently alive past the age of 30 and capable of being honest with themselves KNOWS this country has been nothing less than a pre-packaged, hybrid, homoginized, nanny state, fluff land for quite some time.
