I am in same boat and only hope that the outright fighting either starts soon or after I am gone. I don’t want to be unable to engage because I am in the last chapter and cannot muster it anymore.
We know what the situation is that we as a people and a country are in. Yes, it does look overwhelming, BUT now that we've acknowledged this point, let's look on to what we can do about it. How about if we FReepers give positive, what we can do, commentary as each subject comes up? For one thing, we must associate with like-minded people, like-minded organizations like Americans for Prosperity, Glenn Beck's 912 Project groups, I can't remember the name of this organization, but it has to do with Brent Bozell and is out of California, but it is another good group, YOUR LOCAL TEA PARTY PATRIOTS group, just to name a few.
OK, now let's get to work on the POSITIVE...what we can do as a people to resist, push back, oppose, delay, obstruct obozo’s attempts/decrees/demands/ against the Constitution, our liberty and freedom. DO what the freedom fighters of wars past have done...DON'T sit around and moan about the bleakness of our situation and how it will never change in our lifetime, that we are doomed...you get the idea. Instead, ask yourself what you CAN do about it....and then get up off the chair and get out there with others and make use of ideas you're read, of ideas that you've brain-stormed with other like minded people, and then put these ideas to use...WE ARE AMERICANS under occupation of a socialist/communist/fascist/jihadist, sharia law loving enemy of the people. Face it and then get to work to deflect it until we can DEFEAT IT.
