I do not know too many people that could have said this better. What is it going to take people? The Government taxing us into complete submission, or coming to your door to take your children away for their “mandatory service requirement”? By then, it will be too late. If Canada Free Press has a problem with me shamelessly reprinting the whole article, they can let me know – but I don’t think that is going to happen.

Two recent columns have generated millions of hits and thousands of reader comments web wide, all with a single common sentiment expressed and a single question asked…
America needs a second FREEDOM revolution, a Tea Party…
Who will lead the Second American Revolution?
In case you have not read the columns generating so much reaction, here are the links to the subject columns for your convenience…
Millions of Americans see what is happening to their nation. Many saw it coming and did their civic duty, campaigning and voting against it in 2006 and 2008, but to no avail.
With the people paralyzed by the post-election prospect of their worst fears coming true, economic calamity, explosive growth of a dangerously abusive power-drunk federal government, a multi-generational future of record breaking taxpayer debt as far as the eye can see, and an administration rushing to confiscate control of private industry after private industry, individual freedom and liberty seem nothing more than lost ideas of the past.
Confused by a daily diet of media contrived propaganda supporting leftist Ivy League lies and a global push for international socialism, the average American feels cornered, powerless and alone in their depressed anguish over the loss of the freest, most prosperous and powerful nation ever known to mankind.
They are desperate and looking for a leader to organize their march against federal tyranny under Democratic Socialists, soon to leave the freest nation on earth in a third world state of mandatory servitude under a Saul Alinsky – Bill Ayers and Barack Obama version of modern Democratic Marxism by mob rule.
So far, no such Leader has Emerged!
Even if congressional Republicans had the numbers to make a difference, which they don’t now, there appears to be not a single congressional Republican with the fundamental American principles and values, let alone the backbone, to lead such a charge in the face of an exploding international effort to slaughter all things American.
Leadership from anyone in Washington DC can be ruled out today. Turning things around in 2010 or 2012 can also be ruled out, as national elections will never be legitimate again after 20 million illegal aliens are given amnesty with full voting rights, along with lifetime membership in a labor union, the Democrat (socialist) Party and ACORN.
That leaves the pool of angry average Americans from which to rise up a leader of the Second American Revolution. The next leader of American freedom and liberty will come from the people, not from the halls of an overtly corrupt congress.
Who in their right mind, would sign up for such a daunting task, full of real personal risks?
Can the Average American be Trusted to Follow?
The 2006 and 2008 elections revealed a few very disturbing trends in American society.
- The majority of Americans now prefer the promise of free-stuff over freedom
- The half of Americans that pay only 2.99% of all federal taxes consistently attempt to vote themselves access to other people’s earnings, no matter the cost to freedom
- The half of Americans that pay 97.01% of all federal taxes find themselves the unrepresented defenseless target of every new Washington DC initiative
- Half of voting Americans are completely brainwashed against all things American
- The other half are too busy getting through life to notice, too frightened, or too baffled by Ivy League B.S. to know what to do about it
- Constitutional Republicans are indeed the new American minority
But even so-called conservatives have clearly lost their way…
When conservatives have to ask, “What can I do?” – this means that they have either already lost sight of what the Founders told them to do under such conditions, or they have lost the will to do it…
The mere fact that so many “conservatives” are now searching for a “messiah” of their own, to lead them out of the all consuming darkness, is yet another indication that even conservatives have lost touch with the founding American principles and values established for just such an occasion.
We the People!
Never in the history of mankind has government, made up of corrupt career politicians forever pandering for personal power, ever been the solution to any problem. In fact, almost every problem on earth, and certainly every problem our country faces today, was caused by career politicians that make up an increasingly corrupt government.
WE the PEOPLE have always been the ONLY solution!
But the people lost control of their government and they know it. They are scrambling in search of a means to regain control before it’s too late, and after decades of being misinformed and lied to, they are having trouble seeing through the smoke and mirrors of Washington politics.
The People ALWAYS have the POWER!
But if they don’t know that they have the power, have forgotten or are afraid to use that power, then they are indeed powerless.
There is no conservative messiah coming to your rescue. The leader you are looking for is YOU! You are the ONLY one who can lead a charge against a government which no longer represents your constitution, your republic, or your individual freedom and liberty.
Stop asking for someone else to do the heavy lifting for you. Collectively, YOU have the power that NO individual has, alone.
Radio and TV personality Glenn Beck is attempting to help the people organize in his “We Surround Them” initiative. Others have suggested that Rush Limbaugh should lead the charge, with his twenty million listeners. Some have even asked if I would be willing to lead… as if I have any more power than they do.
Michelle Malkin and others have organized protest events under “Tea Parties” scheduled for the 2009 tax day. Sean Hannity and Mark Levine have tried to lead the American people back to their constitutional foundation.
What are you asking any of these people to do? What do you expect them to do, that you won’t do yourself? Why do you think that any of these people have more power than you?
What are you Prepared to do?
If I, or Rush, or Beck set up a freedom foundation to organize a real people’s revolt against the current destruction of our constitutional republic, how much money, time and effort are you prepared to sacrifice to support that effort? What are you willing to sacrifice for the future of your country, for your own personal freedom?
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” – Declaration of Independence
Are we there yet? Has the federal government become destructive of these ends? If so, what are the people prepared to do about it?
YOU are the ONLY Solution?
Whether by peaceful means or violent action, only YOU can alter the current course of events.
I was recently asked to write a column covering the subject of the Tea Party initiative. I warned the publisher that I might not have the take on the subject he was looking for, but it was my take he was interested in hearing. Here’s what I wrote… Tea Party vs. Real Tea Party, Rhetoric vs. Real Action
Many Americans not yet so indoctrinated in leftist drivel as to foolishly believe that communism is some progressive idea, are indeed beginning to wake up and not a moment too soon. But are they doing all they can to prevent the imminent collapse of the nation they have always known? Or, like their messiah seeking leftist counterparts, are they paralyzed with fear of their overly powerful government, hoping for a conservative messiah to lead them from darkness?
YOU are the Solution!
You have the power to stop the destruction of your country. But you have bought into the lie that you don’t. You have accepted the notion that you are powerless against the unconstitutional DC elitists. You have bought hook, line and sinker into the rhetoric that our current problems are too complex for you to comprehend and that therefore, only Ivy League lawyers are able to save you and your nation from yourselves…
Yet, you are the only possible solution to what is happening in America today. The Founders made certain to give us the power to right all wrongs, to defend the constitutional republic against all enemies, both foreign and DOMESTIC!
What are you doing with that power?
If you fail to use that power in a peaceful resistance today, you will leave yourself with only violent options tomorrow.
If you understand what I’m trying to say here, and are truly prepared to do something real to save this nation from the people who like nothing about America, its founding principles and values, those who now refer to all freedom loving patriots as nothing more than “domestic terrorists” or “right-wing extremists,” then you must begin to act…
To put a very fine point on the matter, the ONLY peaceful solution at this late hour is a full scale massive tax strike, a real Tea Party, in which a massive number of Americans simply refuse to continue funding what they believe wholeheartedly to be an evil corrupt government hell bent upon destroying their nation.
65 million Americans were smart enough to vote against the people now dismantling America, individual right by individual right. What if all 65 million were also courageous enough to take a serious (but peaceful) stand against the current march into unbridled Marxism, by standing together, refusing to fund one more minute of the evil in Washington DC? Can you even begin to imagine the events that would follow such a massive stand? There would be some 500 new job openings in Washington DC soon after…
If the people fail to take peaceful action by defunding the evil befalling our nation, only violent options will remain. If they wait until they are broke, living a soup line existence, stripped of their Second Amendment rights, then they will have waited too long and they will no longer have the power to reverse any of it.
All complex problems require the simplest of solutions. Socialism always ends once government runs out of access to other people’s money. You can make them run out of money now, or wait until they make you run out of money first… Sooner or later, socialism will fail, just as it has everywhere it has ever been tried.
Or, you can wait until there is no option left but to take your country back by force.
But let’s not kid each other here… Leftists know something you are not yet ready to admit…
If you don’t have the courage to take peaceful action, you won’t have the courage to take violent action either.
If you are still looking for a leader, find a mirror…
