Only Rebellion Can Save America
The US federal government has strayed so far from the Constitution and the rule of law that it can now be considered rogue and illegitimate.
Written by Lawrence Sellin
The thoroughly irresponsible rate of government spending projected over the next twenty-five years will drive federal debt to unsustainable levels. The country is heading for a financial meltdown and economic ruin.
The Republican Party is inept and impotent and cannot provide the necessary political opposition to the crimes and unconstitutional policies of the Obama regime or stand against the rampant voter fraud which is now polluting the electoral process. There is a report claiming that the Republican Party signed a legal agreement with the Democrat Party in 1982 not to pursue suspected vote fraud. If there is no guarantee of election integrity, then elections become only window dressing for tyranny.
Barack Obama is an illegal President and unindicted felon. Congress, the American media and the courts are engaged in a criminal conspiracy to conceal their complicity in perpetrating the Obama fraud on the American people. Law enforcement and our elected officials have chosen to risk the survival of the country rather than risk the truth.
According to recent reports, Obama continues to use a Social Security Number (SSN) not issued to him, in the process, committing numerous counts of social security fraud. The SSN Obama uses, issued in Connecticut, a state where he never lived, does not pass a check with E-Verify, the electronic system the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has created to verify whether or not prospective employees have the required authorization to work legally in the United States. It appears that the SSN Obama uses, was actually issued to a Harrison J. Bounel, born in 1890. Once issued, a SSN is never reissued to another individual. Why isnt any of that evidence investigated? It is because Barack Obama is protected by a dishonest media and criminally complicit federal officials and, unlike ordinary Americans, he is above the law.
The US no longer has representative government. Members of Congress seek election not to uphold the Constitution and serve the American people, but to obtain power and to use that power to accrue professional and financial benefits for themselves and their major supporters. All the traditional means for the American people to seek the redress of grievances have now been blocked by a corrupt government composed of a self-absorbed permanent political elite unaccountable to the people.
The status quo is no longer defensible. Unless there is a significant reversal soon, it is only a matter of time that a catastrophe will be upon us, which will inevitably lead to national collapse and fragmentation.
All unconstitutional and unlawful policies of the Obama regime must be opposed, obstructed and undermined. The Democrat Party and their radical left-wing supporters must be aggressively and continuously confronted. The Republican Party must be defunded and its leadership replaced. The purveyors of disinformation and propaganda represented by most of the mainstream media must be professionally destroyed.
A county by county battle is the means by which the American people can restore the Constitution, establish responsible fiscal policies and take back control of the political process and the government. Patriots need to organize locally outside of the party apparatus to exert political pressure and prepare for armed defense, if necessary. No county officials, in particular the Sheriff, should be elected or maintained in office, who do not fully honor their oath to support and defend the Constitution.
Fundamental to this effort are the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment. Each county should establish elements of an organized and disciplined Constitutional Army with sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence and individual liberty from anyone who might attempt to abuse them.
It is indeed ironic that the Mexican border made maximally porous by the Obama regime may become the route of choice for weapon and ammunition resupply, a Fast and Furious in reverse, capable of making gun control about as successful as the national prohibition of alcohol (1920-33), another failed noble experiment undertaken to reduce crime and solve social problems.
Efforts should be directed towards decreasing the influence of the federal government in county affairs, cooperating with federal officials and agencies only when it benefits local citizens. Counties should maximize the consumption of federal resources and overburdening federal agencies administratively while at the same time reducing or delaying taxes paid to the federal government. County residents should forcefully shun, oppose or drive out of business, individuals or media outlets, which support the criminal Obama regime.
Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress. Frederick Douglass, August 4, 1857.

I very truly fear that it is coming to just that.
God help us find another way.
I say we get it over with now. The sooner the better.
God helps those who help themselves, I have heard it said.
What do you propose we do?
All goes into flux at that point and the law of in intended consequences takes over. A clearly articulated and led political alternative is needed first.
This from NY Sun ? Last time I saw something from it here it was fronting for the regime. Any New Yorker FR know anything about this publication ?
The Colonel has hit the nail on the head.
This thread should have at least 300 replies.
Now, rather than leave it to the kids.
The day will come and when it does I will be ready
and for all those that say “Nay, we will die in vain!”
at least we went down fighting, less can be said for others
If you read the essay, you’ll note that the Colonel has already dismissed elections as a means to an end. The election process in this country is corrupted to the point of failure, and I believe we’ll see how truly bad it has become in 2014, if we make it that far.
“When Injustice becomes Law, Resistance becomes Duty.” Thomas Jefferson.
Jefferson said a lot of things that were pertinent back in the day, and those same words — and the above is just one quote — are more pertinent today, because the assault on freedom is so much more intolerable today than it was in the 1770s. George III was a benign benefactor compared to Obama and his minions.
The messiness of revolutions isn’t limited to physical violence. Societies convulse as well.
We revolted, in part, against Great Britain because colonial administration did not provide for civil means to redress our grievances.
Our wise Framers provided those means, of peaceful redress. First among them is the fact that the people are represented.
Let’s say we fight and win. Then what? The same corrupted populace will remain. Will they demand a return to the Constitution?
Don’t bet on it.
It really is surreal, how much the country seems to be rapidly re-configuring itself into a one-party rule. You have the media transforming from age-old liberal biases to becoming an all-out “partner” to Obama and his agenda, while the GOP has all but given up being a genuine “opposition” party, capitulating and even colluding on every issue from budgets to amnesty to just about everything.
This one-party rule is a paradigm that leads to tyranny. Always. And very, very quickly. We’re at an incredibly dangerous stage.
And if so, the good news is that there would be no one left alive to work for and therefore sustain the 47% who will not work to feed and house and clothe themselves.
Then the Statists will have the unpleasant duty of trying to force them to work. And the entirety will collapse completely.
America will be a political ghost town and the first one in gets to stake their flag.
I do agree with the Colonel’s diagnosis, it’s the severity of the cure I have reservations with. Unless a case be clearly made, with violations of the constitution clearly articulated and damages to the republic be undeniably placed in evidence, the cart is way, way in front of the horse.
And remember...Big Sis is always listening.
Semper Col Sellin!

the situation we’re in is dire. There are any number possible outcomes; these outcomes will be determined by known and unknown factors. We can still hope for the best while preparing for the worst.
Think out of the box - what are small ways that everyone, young and old, can protest against the FEDS every day? A kind of protracted civil-disobedience campaign....
Remembering Waco, Ruby Ridge and before that Kent State, I don’t see a scenario where Americans would sacrifice to interrupt their sports TV watching, shopping, talking and texting on cellphones (women), and Twitter tweeting in order to engage in a rebellion. Recall that they (”we”) wouldn’t do that to seriously consider our choices during the past election, despite hard times, gasoline prices twice what they were 4 years earlier, food prices going up, effective unemployment at 15%, and so on. Don’t bug me now, I’m watching Okrah!
