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.
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.
I agree with you Col. Nelson. I just wish I had a platform to inspire, equip, and empower pastors and Christian civil servants to do the role God gave them to do, without fear and doubt. But, it is very hard for them to be "warriors for Christ" when they haven't had the need to go into battle, or they have avoided every opportunity to stand and teach firmly with confidence in their pulpit or government job. "Feed my sheep" "take care of my lambs" but hirelings flee from the wolves leaving the flock to be preyed upon.
I pray that God use your battles and my battles as examples of attainable victory to inspire and equip for the next battle... and so on. People need to be able to see righteous men win once in awhile, like when David defeated Goliath. As we children stand, we gain experience and competence and confidence for the next step in our faith walk. And we mature as He confirms the Truth to our hearts and minds. I just wish I had more buddies standing with me. It is a lot easier when you have trustworthy and wise friends encouraging and helping. I have to keep looking at that passage in Romans chapter 12, where it says that we may become "the firstborn of many brothers..." What a nice thought to renew our strength.
Anyway, yes, it is a revival of faith, love, and righteousness that will save the nation. Politicians won't save us. "This Constitution is made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the governance of any other." John Adams.
I go to my chapter of the Tea Party. Do you?
I have been pushing for this. But, we need a leader , a natural talented leader to motivate and organize such a movement. Any takers?
Effective leadership must have the resources too operate... there are many who have the Character and ability to effectively lead but lack the resources. What is needed today are leaders with the resources too put their leadership to work.
There are men and women of wealth that can assist in the effort to find good leaders for this movement... whose loyal support could propel men and women to assume the leadership need by our movement.. However, for some reason these men and women of means are holding back... have been unwilling to promote a national leader or group of leaders.
Until this movement finds the resources needed to amalgamate it will be restrained by a lack of leadership and unity... it will be restricted to operating at the extreme margins of political power.
Amy, Glenn would be a good one, it will take more than one, that they could take out to stop the movement.
Dennis... I keep hearing this tired theme about unity will make our leadership more vulnerable and taking out the head of a unified patriot movement would some how destroy or seriously handicap the movement. I assure you that we are not looking for ONE SUPREME LEADER as the left does... we need a coalition of leaders, tailored after the example provided by the original Colonies... That way the left could not focus on just one man or woman... just as King George could not destroy one man and in so doing kill the revolution.
We need a new continental congress... and a confederacy of independent Patriot groups whose sole purpose is to form an alliance to serve their common interest. This congress or board of directors would form the nucleolus around which our movement may coalesce: to organize, plan, direct and resource a national campaign to achieve their common goals... the restoration of our Constitutional Republic.
The principal of a unified command also carries within it the concepts of a chain of command... one capable of replacing the top leadership from elements within the chain of command. So that, the organization is never without effective leadership. One can not take out the head of such an organization and effectively destroy its direction... there will always be one more leader standing at the ready to lead.
Ronald, thank you. That was my point, though I didn't express it as well as you, again, thank you for the explanation. May God help us!
Col.......The window to accomplish this is fastly closing. You of all, knows that an enemy targets mostly at first, an opponents means of communications, and power sources. The left I am sure reads these post and plants subversives in our ranks to sabatoage our efforts at organizing. In short, continued threads on this forum, and we'll be playing into their hands. At some point we'll need to organize underground and not openly on the internet. I feel that we're already needing means and methods of encripting our underground communications before it's too late.
The first approach of the left in implimenting their diabolitical plan, is the confiscation of our weapons. Their lap dogs Fienstine, and Hillary seems to have began this process in earnest I am afraid. It's only a matter of time that food for guns will morph into duce-and-a half's and UN troops rumbling into our sub-divisions collecting by force, from door to door, our weapons of self-defense. Their thirst for power will eventually transend all laws and what our Constitution stands for, and will eventually bring a blood bath of massive porportions. Obama and his Chicago machine by, manipulating the vote to win the election, has already shown their hand that they will stop at nothing to usurp their will over Gods will. Is there a leader amoung us that will transend the collective fear that is prevelent in what God fearing people that are left to fight this fight.
Palin would help out the cause for sure. Then maybe Lt. Col. West could help out. Get the Nuge out their to do a little Cat Scratch Fever and we got us a "Hoe down"!
Alan West is the exact opposit of Hussian/Insane Oblamea! Comparison would be Jesus vs Satan. #1 reason Alan West is not president is because washington dc is being ruled by an evil dictatorship in chief!
M1ark58 ...... I would RUN HIS CAMPAIGN OFFICE IN MY STATE'S CAPITOL !!!
