“I can sense right now a rebellion brewing amongst these United States,” Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Saturday night, ”where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C., to preserve the American Dream for our children and grandchildren.”
Jindal’s keynote address at the annual conference hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition accused President Barack Obama and other Democrats of waging wars against religious liberty and education.
Jindal emphasized that there was a “silent war” on religious liberty being fought in the U.S. — a country that he said was built on that liberty.
“I am tired of the left. They say they’re for tolerance, they say they respect diversity. The reality is this: They respect everybody unless you happen to disagree with them,” he said. “The left is trying to silence us and I’m tired of it, I won’t take it anymore.”
Organizers of the group led by longtime Christian activist Ralph Reed said more than 1,000 evangelical leaders attended the three-day gathering. Republican officials across the political spectrum concede that evangelical voters continue to play a critical role in GOP politics.
I went to DC to support the OAS. I out in 4 days and it was one of the greatest experiences that I have ever had.
If Operation American Spring could not muster but a handful of patriots to engage in peaceful civil protest and petition... how can we expect to raise an Army too forcefully retake our government? Think on that for a while...
We need a National Organization and leadership capable of organizing and mustering millions to the cause of liberty... we must have the leadership, organization, boots and resources capable of supporting a legitimate contest for the reform of our Constitutional Republic. None of these things exist today.
If we continue to go without the National leadership and resourcing necessary to organize and support a campaign for the restoration of Constitutional government we will loose our liberty and our Nation... it is now or never. If we don't see serious progress in this regard over the next 12 months the American dream may perish for lack of support.
Go ahead and take the lead. I will follow you.
I personally don't have the finance to organize such an undertaking...
However, what we can do is to spread the word until some benefactor who has the resources but may lack the resolve or leadership to go this task alone steps up to finance the organization of an effective Operation American Spring.
Let us continue to call for such those with these resources and the patriot spirit too put them to use in a positive way ... too, bring peaceful reform to our nation.
God Bless America... and her people.
Col. Nelson, should not every state form a command unit? And then have a lead command for the country? If we work on this. Ans do so fast. We can get it in place. Keeping Rambos from jumping in will be hard. You know as well as myself, the people are out there. Would you be willing to take the lead role in this? Form a national command structure. And then each state gets theirs together. Time is very short! I really don't think that we have 12 months. But with your experience. We can do this. What do you think. Could you post a site here (blog) and get it started? And be able to delete bullshit post before they get on site. What do you think, sir? Thanks Ted I Lewis
I am proud that you asked me too start such a movement... however, this undertaking needs resources well beyond my ability to provide. Organizing a national campaign should not be undertaken haphazardly, we don't need too post another failure or fall short of achieving our purpose... as did OAS.
The resourcing for such an undertaking far exceeds my capacity... I learned long ago that one doesn't start something they don't have the necessary resources to REASONABLY anticipate a successful completion. A man should not attempt to build a house without first examining the costs thereof... or he may well end up never finishing it.
Again, I am proud and honored that you considered asking me to undertake such an activity...however, at this time I don't have access to the necessary resources to undertake, a national task of this magnitude, and too complete it properly.
I am already a retiree from the California State Military Reserve /State Defense Force. There is always a state central command yes, but the hard works takes place regionally. The best model for this is the Texas Militia which is pieced out into several regions. California itself was divided into Northern, Central and Southern Regions. In my 10 years experience, these regions must be broken down even further into smaller training and educational units and the toughest thing is to keep Rambos out. The attitude is strictly military bearing at all times and this weeds out those who "want a more important mission..." which is always in their minds. What did occur with CSDF was that I was deployed to Operation Gulf States Relief in 2005 but that was the extent of our cooperative efforts with other states. In my mind, each state must drill monthly as is standard practice, but also muster annually and include drills with units from other states all learning and training precisely the same. This must occur with regularity all across the nation beginning now and forevermore.

Many States have existing Statutory Law... which provides for a State Militia. A Militia separate from and in addition to the National Guard. However most States have not organized or formally trained these Militias. There are very few States that maintain roaster of members in such Militias. let alone mandate or hold monthly drills or annual musters.
Private Militias are springing up all over the country... primarily for lack of any State involvement and a strong mistrust of government. Therefore, those individuals seeking to serve are left to train and drill under their own officers and non-com's, using whatever local standards they develop... OR joining the National Guard. The idea that the irregular militia is ready to defend of our State or the Nation and its Constitution is a very, very, far stretch.
The several State's Adjutant Generals and Legislatures should be contacted by the private Militia to seek out a way to establish in a formal relationship and status thru an expanded State Militia. One, that is authorized under the States Statutory supervision. Too become a regular and irregular Militia of the State.
Then the private Militia could become a part of the authorized State Militia: trained and equipped, using operating guidance and procedures that meet State standards. Militia units and personnel requirements would become standardized , and minimum requirements established for: uniforms, equipment, training, and drills.
The problem is that this takes the commitment of resources by a State and that is not likely to occur under the present economic conditions and political environment. Hence, we see the void being filled by private militia groups.
In addition there is the distrust associated with forming up under any government entity... which must be overcome... or the Militia movement will remain outside the Statutory protection of the State... and could easily be labeled a Terrorist Group.
What exactly is a Rambo?
Choose your words carefully, Bobby. 'People' are ready to "Re-Establish Constitutional Government by whatever methods available".
What does the enemies of the Constitution look like? Who are they? If we went to d.c. and threw them all out, what would make us think that others just like them wouldn't fill those positions immediately after. If one would walk out their door right at this instant and look for the enemy, who would they be and what would they look like?
