The solution is massive PEACEFUL assemblies and STRIKES... the people must rise up in mass... tens of millions in assembly, occupying every Capitol in the Nation, petitioning the government (state and federal) to immediately and properly address their grievances. We need to think outside the box... to engage heretofore unused powers (massive persistent assembly and strikes), if we are to achieve national reform.
Lech Walesa and the Polish 'Solidarity Movement' should become our model for the PEACEFUL reformation of our government. The power of the People lies in their ability and WILLINGNESS to apply selective and progressive Strikes, coupled with massive assemblies, on a national basis... until the government aggress to their demands for reform. Their willingness to leave their homes and jobs... too, remain in assembly and on strike, are the keys to PEACEFUL reformation.
However, such a movement will require LEADERSHIP capable of resourcing this massive national undertaking. We need the equivalent of a George Soros's too provide the resources necessary too accomplish this task. America must find strong and confident leadership, willing and capable of undertaking such a movement. As of yet, no one has risen to accept this challenge... no one appears to be willing to pledge their life, liberty (high potential of arrest) and personal fortune to the cause of liberty.
There seems to be no modern day equivalent... for George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and the hundreds of others, who gave their all to the cause of liberty. Until we find leaders, capable and willing, to undertake a movement similar to the Polish 'Solidarity Movement', America will have no avenue for the peaceful redress of her grievances. This Administration, Congress, and the Judiciary, are all corrupt... beyond repair using the routine political process... We must find a new path... we must engage the power of the people (assembly and strikes)
The People are fooling themselves if they think their VOTE COUNTS or that elections will deliver us from the hands of the tyrants in charge of our government. The venue for peaceful resolution is a narrow one... One, that will require strong, effective, leadership and a level of commitment by the people that has not surfaced to date.
This movement must find the leadership and resources necessary to capitalize on the people's innate power too bring about peaceful reform... their right to engage in massive assemblies; the right to withhold their labor and taxes... these are the keys to peaceful reform and they rest in the hands of the people. These keys will unlock the door, thru which the American Dream may be rapidly and peacefully restored.
Right on target, Ron!
We must DO SOMETHING...our nation, our liberties are fast disappearing.
One of the many problems we have is the huge volume of poorly written laws and regulations which can be used to turn every individual into a criminal for revenue collection or jail. Alone, individuals simply cannot commit civil disobedience in an attempt to stand against unjust laws and tax slavery without risking their livelyhood and ability to feed their family.
In the pioneer days small towns and communities were built around the church. Christianity played a huge role in uniting neighbors with a desire to see that liberty, justice, and honesty governed the community. People knew their neighbors, the judge, the cop, the attorneys, the doctors, etc, and they could be held accountable to standards of honesty, justice, and common decency or face embarrassment and disdain from their neighbors. This system worked very well under our Constitution which separated and limited powers of government. Local government was more powerful than centralized state and federal governments.
Over the last 100 years as our churches weakened and government schools miseducated and atrocious media tempted upcoming generations... Families broke apart, neighbors didn't get to know each other, and the common knowledge of right and wrong, liberty and justice, and personal responsibility and honesty was turned into this present chaos by the deliberate design of globalists who deliberately undermined wholesome values by removing the Author of liberty, justice, and goodness from the government schools. You can look at a chart that plots the growth of divorce, abortion, promiscuity, school shootings, corruption, etc. from where it was in the 1940s to the present. At the years 1962 when the scripture and prayer were removed from public school classrooms, all the bad things went straight up.
I wonder if the Tea Party can unify to stand in civil disobedience against government abuse, tyranny, and enslavement without returning to the unifying values and morality found in scripture. Anyway, I have attempted to stand alone and I have recorded my stand on the following Blog: http://manfined1500forlookingforajob.blogspot.com/2011/12/man-fined...
I was complaining a lot about my troubles dealing with ignorant government employees, my neighbors. But then I realized that if I hadn't been given this opportunity to stand, those neighbors who work for the government would not have been told the TRUTH. If I hadn't taken my stand, who would have taught them about our founding principles and documents? Who would have held them accountable to serving the people rather than exasperating and provoking the people?
No one would have held the government employees accountable to do our civic duty to support and defend our state and federal constitutions. The blog is really amazing and quite an education exposing the misconceptions and egos of the blind minions (our neighbors) who are seeking to expand the power and control of big, big government.
I am seeking feedback, support, and unity from the Tea Party in order to further educate our neighbors (government employees) in our civic duty to uphold and defend our constitutions as their Oath of Office requires them to do. Please help me get my blog out to other wise patriots. It can be used as an example of how to stand against the tyranny of the bureaucracy.
Jody... great words of wisdom.
Our nations problem is not GOVERNMENT... it is a moral one. Since, God has been rejected from the public square our problems as a people and nation have vastly increased. Our nations moral underpinnings have been eroded and the moral code of our forefathers abandoned by an egalitarian society... where right has become wrong and wrong has become right.
Our form of government requires a moral people and not just any form of morality... it requires a moral system anchored in the JUDEO/CHRISTIAN ethic. However, our schools, pubic institutions and national leadership have long abandoned such precepts for social order... too, embrace the irrational amoral codes of the humanist movement. Political correctness and all its facets has destroyed the foundations for a just and equitable moral order in America. Even the protagonist of our historic experiment in individual liberty are amazed at just how quickly and far America has fallen.
It is time not only to retake the halls of government but to revitalize our National sense of morality... too, once again instill the social order of our fathers in our homes and public institutions. We must RETURN to the moral ethic that our Creator provided for our benefit and blessing... the word of God must once again become the compass by which our ship of state is helmed. If we are to have peace and prosperity once again... we must abandon the road to perdition and return to the path of righteousness... right standing before our God.
The plans and thoughts of men are vain... vanity, vanity... all have gone astray. There is only one certain path for success in life and that path rests in the true and tried Word of God. Athiest, agnostic, weak and strong Christians alike... all understand that love and the precepts of a just and equitable system of law unlocks the door to the path we all seek... peace and prosperity for one and all.
Now, it is up to the people too repent from their sin... their failures as men and to return to the God of their forefather's... too invite Nature's Creator to sit at the head of our Nation; too unlock the power need to heal our Nation and to bring about a common purpose in the brotherhood that was once embraced by every American... A true 'New World Order', where all men and women may embrace the common good and brotherhood, found thru obedience to our Creator and His will for mankind.
There is a New Year coming let us forge a path to a NEW BEGINNING... that the New Year may return our Nation to its purpose... too, be that light set upon a hill, that beacon of liberty in a world of darkness. Will you join me in this effort... will America once again have the vision too regain her greatness? Time will tell... and I pray it's report may be a good one.
The main reason the resistance should be Judeo-Christian is that those values are the very ones which have liberated peoples, elevated women and girls to the same status as men, provided for rule of law, gave protection to slaves and strangers, (and in the case of Great Britain and the U.S., finally eradicated that "peculiar institution" of slavery). Economic freedom and prosperity are found in Christian societies, not in tyrannies.
The Left is in the position of enslaving all of us as they seek to destroy freedom of speech and religious expression found in the First Amendment and given to us by God Himself.
Speaking of religious belief, Jewish and Christians' belief system is based on fact, a written and validated archeological and social history (warts and all), as opposed to bodies of religious belief which are based on obedience to worship of trees and cows, or cult figures with their narrow and controlling propensities. Up with Christianity, up with freedom.
Ron and Russ, I am so pleased with your posts, I am almost giddy. I pray every night with a friend and one of our consistent prayers is for God to show us what to do with our knowledge of history. Before the election I did several things:
Friends, I let it be known what I believed and found others who believed too. My Dad ran the campaign for “Mr. Conservative”, Senator Robert Taft, when he ran against Eisenhower and lost. My roots go way back, they read Human Events, we stuffed envelopes, we went to church, at dinner we discussed politics and values. We moved from the compromised East Coast to Colorado. In 1962 I stepped out of high school into an attack on our faith, our culture, our morality, our very foundation, and I, like others, lost my bearings. Now the left has compromised this state; we cannot just move again; we take a stand here, wherever we are.
CM... all good ideas... we must engage the church in this battle for our Republic... it's pastors and leadership should be encouraged too organize events that support our Judeo/Christian heritage... and government. Yes, government... the foundations of our law and government are set upon a rock... the Rock of Jesus Christ.
I'm encouraged by your post... the country is awakening to the seriousness of the situation and the Church is beginning to understand it must take a prominent roll in solving our problems.
We have begun a conversation about what is my role in politics? What is it in my faith? How do they intersect? I was heartened when our church left their denomination and with other churches started a new denomination. The liberals had so compromised that group that there was no role for the guidance of scripture. I asked the dynamic pastor who led us why our church didn’t stand up behind the 6 Roman Catholic bishops against the government interference in the practice of their faith. He replied that we did at one time; there would have been no anti-slavery movement without the church. We have been sold a lie: we don’t need to gather together, we can practice our faith all alone, anywhere, without the whole body. To all Tea Party members: please find a live church and go there with your families.
We need more people like you. Your post is an inspiration. I am so glad to hear that your efforts have were accepted in your church. I know there are churches with wise courageous shepherds out there, but I fear that they are too few. The thing is, the pastor can't do it alone, either. He needs support from upstanding men in the congregation. Wth them at his back, his teaching can become bolder. Without that support fear and timidity and self preservation (his salary) will water down the message. Some church members like to have their ears tickled only.
The message is, "As you go preach the kingdom of heaven is at hand," Mt 10:7. It can be found while you are alive. It is good knews like a treasure in the field, yet the pastors feel safer pretending like the whole congregation has found it, rather than risk insulting someone by telling them to go after the meat of the Word, instead of sipping on the baby's milk. Somehow, we need to light a fire, a bright shining fire around finding God's definitions of love, wisdom, virtue, responsibility, honesty, and courage. We need some victories of love, wisdom, virtue, etc pushing back the lies and nonsense that so distort and bury the Truth. I am praying for a victory in my efforts standing up to the nonsense from the government employees whose god is their employer as they blindly follow contradictory laws, regulations, and policies written by walking EGOs. Truth is, our neighbors are simply unaware of "love your neighbor" and "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." They were not exposed to it in the government schools but someone told them that they can get a secure job for the government and supposedly "work to make a better society."
There is the battle. Is the church going to rise up and make a better society, or are the idiots in government going to continue to screw things up? Eventually persecuting the church and Christians. Seems if we want to survive, we need to learn how to teach, "Seek first His kingdom, find it, and pass it on to your children instead of miseducating them in government schools."
Please check out my blog. I really think it would be a great teaching tool. The latest UPDATES are quite enjoyable as they include some patriotic videos and Mark Twain humor. Thanks and God bless you. http://manfined1500forlookingforajob.blogspot.com/2011/12/man-fined...
You got it! We have a handful of people in washington dc, a frightening parallel to an Oligharchy, making and passing "their laws" against the good honest citizens, and at any turn these travesties on our Liberties can make us into criminals.
All governments operate by force... force of law.
Good government is the product of a moral people. When tyranny rules the law becomes the whip by which the tyrant restrains the people. It is obvious that the law and those servants of the law (judges and lawyers) have become the instruments of tyranny.
It is time the people reform the law... it is time that they restrain the wicked in high places, whose abuse of power now works thru the corruption of law.
Russ... If our so called public servants claim to be Christian... it is time to put their faith to a test. Let their pastors challenge them to apply their faith at work... and if the regulations and laws will not permit it... tell them they must choose... either to serve God or MAMMON (money and the world).
Pastors need to teach their congregations that a servant of God can not serve two masters... there is no such thing as a 'secular life' separate from one's faith. Our lives... are a LIVING TESTIMONY of our faith. If our lives testify of the world then our faith is DEAD and we are living a lie by PROFESSING to be Christians.
Attorneys, civil servants, judges, elected and appointed officials of government who are required to execute laws, regulations, and duties that deny the Judeo/Christian ethic have made a conscious choice to serve MAMMON rather than Christ. Their lives testify of the god they serve. A Christian's life must testify of Christ and not the world... they can not compromise their faith or justify their acts by claiming their exists a duality in mankind's service to God... It is time for the Christian who is a civil servant to either QUIT or too acknowledge that they are living a lie.
Man can not serve two masters... he will hold to one and hate the other. Pastors must firmly and directly instruct every Christian in their duty too live their faith. One's life must be a product of their faith... they are inseparable. Many, are self-deceived today... they profess Christ but don't serve Him or His body in the earth. Our Constitutional form of government can only function when the people and government operate within the standards of the Judeo/Christian ethic. Hence, our culture, heritage, and Republic are in serious trouble.
