I found these Justin Smith thoughts on his Facebook Notes page. It is similar to a post linked to on the NCCR blog entitled, “Revolt” (SlantRight 2.0 version). Justin puts a voice to the fact of what he calls “Progressives” are breaking the U.S. Constitution with no rebuke from the voters or the Courts. He speculates that unless Americans wake up to the Leftist annulment of the Constitution our only recourse for a free America would be the same choice our Founding Fathers struggled with and culminated in the Declaration of Independence. If ballots do not overcome this Left Wing transformation of our America, will bullets be necessary? If we wake up late and move with bullets, will the true Americans have enough bullets to defeat Left Wing despotism?

There may come a time where violence is all that's left to us. I don't advocate it as a first choice, But what makes anyone think that an Administration that doesn't even respect the existing Constitution will respect amendments coming out of an Article V States Convention or States Rights decisions under the 9th and 10th Amendments? The Constitution was designed for governance by moral men, and our leaders are of the poorest moral character in history and have strayed far from Our U.S. Constitution.
The Founders were afraid of "elective despotism" and gave us Article V as a counter, and failing that, the 2nd Amendment – True, it would be an uphill fight, since many would side with the Progressives, but the True American Patriot would honor his oath to the Constitution, former and present law enforcement and military, and side with Our American Heritage and the Constitution and Freedom, not the altar of the Super State - the Leviathan.
We're not to that point yet, but things certainly are looking pretty bleak; Future Generations' Destiny Hangs in the Balance and the next two election cycles are critical.
The following is an excerpt from an article I wrote that appeared on two blog sites and in two local papers here in Murfreesboro, TN (The Rutherford Reader and the Daily News Journal):
"20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
15 Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good. (Isaiah 5: 20; 7: 15 NKJV)"
"After recent events, I have serious concerns over whether or not our traditional process will correct the course of our government’s trend towards authoritarian rule in time to save us. In past years, our differences were sorted out within the guidelines of the U.S. Constitution. What are we to do when one side decides to no longer be bound by the rules? The Progressives may have been born American citizens, but they are no longer American in their intentions for our nation. And, when the government, led by Obama and these Progressives, becomes lawless, it is not illegal or treason to finally take to the streets in protest/civil disobedience, at the very least, in the defense of the U.S. Constitution and America - to finally hold the criminals in the Obama Administration accountable through armed revolt should it persist in its treason, since many of America’s veterans, past and present, took an oath to defend the U.S. against “enemies both foreign and domestic.”
Someone once told me: "When is violence justified, when violence is used against us. Preemptive violence is not justified. Ballots, not bullets."
My answer was that when they coerce citizens to do something against their will with the threat of violence, such as authorizing IRS agents to arrest one for not signing on to the ACA, an unConstitutional law (no matter how many hoops they jumped through to find otherwise) and many, many such extralegal/illegal laws amass, or rules and regulations with the weight of law as through the EPA, then too is revolt a duty.
That was the point of the last paragraph above the provided link. The ballot is foisting upon us the very tyranny we seek to escape, because of a coalition of the weak and minorities, who have found that they can vote themselves benefits and PRIVILEGE without consequence. Can we turn it around at the ballot? It's hard to say - much probably depends on people realizing that it’s their own greed and actions destroying the nation. But the Founding Fathers recognized this phenomena and wrote about it extensively in the Federalist Papers - they called it ELECTIVE DESPOTISM. [Bold emphasis is Blog Editor’s]
I'm fighting tooth and nail within the system, such as it is. I'm even on board with the Article V movement for the moment, even though I do not see it doing much against the Progressives, with their current mindset of "KEEP POWER NO MATTER THE COST."
How far are You and Your like-minded friends willing to go? Until the nation is completely crippled or destroyed by these anti-American MarxoFascists? I, for one, am staying vigilant and watching the approaching storm. I'm not about to allow them to destroy the future of My Children and GrandChildren Without a Damn Good Fight, whether they actually fire the first shot or not - NOT IF IT MEANS THAT AMERICA IS "FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED" INTO THEIR VERSION OF A TOTALITARIAN "UTOPIA".
The Founders fought the Revolution over a whole lot less grievances and with a whole lot less than we face at the moment. If we wait for the Progressives to fire on us, we will have waited too late, especially if the tipping scale has gone farther towards the Left in the electorate - not to say we have to fire any shots first. But we certainly should be mounting Maidan type protests.
