Want to know why unlawful government has grown so large, gotten so bold, and is on the verge of destroying our Republic? The greatest LAWFUL force has stood down from its duty… the Militia. I'm not referring to the National Guard, which is a select Militia subject to call up by the President and therefore Federal pawns, but the citizens at arms. Since the Federal attacks of Ruby Ridge, Idaho and Waco, Texas, Militias have sprung up all over the Republic. Men and women training together to stand as a force to protect their communities from government attack… but are they?
The Internet is ablaze with stories of Federal raids against citizens for producing and selling raw milk, building on their land, exercising their right to keep and bear arms, and thousands of other "offenses" government deems illegal or against their interests. Most of these attacks are against people exercising their natural rights, protected by the 9th amendment. Things like providing shelter for themselves and their family, growing food to feed them, exchanging labor for money to pay for clothing and other necessities of life… producing sustenance from the land… defending themselves from invasions of their rights and property by government and others.
All of these activities are necessary for our lives and our pursuit of happiness. These raids to protect corporate interests, such as Monsanto, violate the purpose of government and the conditions of our consent; exactly what the Militia is supposed to protect. IF the Militia was defending its citizens as intended, the spark of restoration would have been lit decades ago… yet they're still drilling and waiting for the government to shoot first… after the governments have killed thousands. Just what constitutes a first shot to them?
Sammy Weaver was shot in the back while trying to retreat to his home after Federal Marshalls shot his dog with no notice and he returned fire in defense. His mother, Vicky Weaver was shot through the head while clutching her baby and holding the door open for husband after he was shot trying to go from the shed where they put Sammy's body and the house. Hundreds of armed Federal agents surrounded them; were it not for the media attention they got they would have been burned out like so many others have. Where was the Militia of Idaho then?
In the next year, the BATF raided the church and home of the Branch Davidian sect of the Seventh Day Adventist church, in Waco, Texas, culminating in a fiery inferno and gun battle that resulted in the death of 84 souls. Where was the Militia of Texas then?
I have seen a lot more than the first shot in the 40 years I've been paying attention… yet there is no clash between Militia and government forces… why? What are they waiting for?
We're losing this war because we're not resisting the tyranny through all means necessary. We've been led to believe that "fighting within the system" will force government to return the power they've usurped. I don't know what planet these so-called leaders come from but NO government in the history of the world has just given back the power it has usurped without some major convincing with armed force. How anyone can claim with a straight face that our judicial system is anything but corrupt and a tool for the bureaucracy is mind boggling to me; just look at attempts to get Obama to prove his eligibility. Every dollar we spend on lawyers is a dollar less for material in the war that is clearly raging against us.
Without a credible show of force, you have no argument worth hearing… unless you're willing to back your position with force there is no incentive for anyone to take you seriously. The Militia was supposed to be the people's force… the enforcement arm of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. I'm not sure if that's true today, since so many usurpations and attacks continue to go unchallenged by them.
Can anyone convince me otherwise?
