We the People Remain – and We Will Overcome

Written by Allan Erickson on October 7, 2013

Proverbs 6
12 A worthless person, a wicked man, walks with a perverse mouth;
13 He winks with his eyes, He shuffles his feet, he points with his fingers;
14 Perversity is in his heart, he devises evil continually, he sows discord.
15 Therefore his calamity shall come suddenly; suddenly he shall be broken without remedy.

As the old saying goes, “We can do this the easy way, or the hard way.”  So what’s it going to be, people?

Do we prosecute Obama, charging him with high crimes, even treason, and remove him from the White House before he does more damage?  Or do we work to neutralize him at the ballot box in 2014, preventing his criminality?  Some insist we vote to overthrow the regime in 2016, but by then, will there be enough of the country left to save?

Armed insurrection is insane.  The government possesses weapons systems than can vaporize entire states.  Given Obama’s temperament and behavioral history, few will doubt, if pushed, he’ll respond violently.  His fascination with and use of drones is beyond macabre.

Tax revolt has been suggested, and it would be a serious option if not for one overriding consideration: bankrupting the country plays into the hands of other enemies.  We can’t win by weakening ourselves.  Why help Obama gut the military further?

Obviously, systemic weakness and cowardice in Congress precludes intervention.  Obama has broken the law more times than Bill has cheated on Hillary, and still the clowns in Congress can’t seem to muster anything close to a meaningful investigation.

Traditional journalism offers no hope. The last real journalist died the day Obama declared himself king, suffering no consequence for his crass violations of the Constitution.

Filing suit in court has not penetrated the armor around Obama, a defensive shield, like media, constructed through decades of communist infiltration, appointments and decisions weakening the Republic, case by case, judgment by judgment.

Since time is short, and The People cannot rely on our so-called representatives, the courts, law enforcement or the media, there are only two options left: military coup or, we take matters into our own hands.

More bad news: the Left has so weakened and corrupted the military, anyone with the guts to lead a coup has already been drummed out or otherwise shackled.  Don’t think for a minute all this homosexual rights business has anything to do with equal treatment, fairness or justice.

So that leaves us: We the People. What are We the People going to do?

The Tea Party, through non-violent protest and organization, turned the tide for a time in the 2010 election.

900,000 bikers recently roared into Washington to make a statement, adding to the growing resistance.

This week, the men who defeated Hitler and Tōjō and built the greatest nation on earth refused to obey Obama’s order to stay away from the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C.  Nobody orders a WWII vet to submit to tyranny.

1,000,000 truckers will soon follow suit, protesting in D.C., striking to freeze movement in the Capitol, demanding justice and reform.

We the People will demonstrate.  We will protest.  We will speak out in opposition to this tyranny.  We will refuse to comply, we will strike, and by non-violent civil disobedience, like Dr. King, and Gandhi, we will overcome.
