Only Rebellion Can Save America

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 isn’t 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.

Ubetcha! There are a lot of “LIV” comments to postings in here that unfortunately that run into that category. They don’t have to do any “trolling”. But this one is pretty blatant. What is surprizing to me I’m getting responses to a posting made cycles back. What’s happening is that FR’s is becoming a vent and drop off it’s not an exchange of ideas like it was back when.

Agreed. The LIV is alive and well on FR. The danger is that conservatives are starting to sound just like bumper-sticker liberals. We’re losing our intellectual edge if we don’t stop emoting and start thinking.

The Obama Admin just wagged us all on the ridiculous and DOA “Assault Weapons Ban”. It drove all kinds of bad news, but particularly Benghazi out of the news cycle and the minds of Americans.

We call the GOP the stupid party, but we’re cracking the whip.

Nice idea, but most air travel is business-related, so unless you are trying to shut down commerce in the USA, your suggestion will be counterproductive.

Rubio on Rush said something yesterday which I thought accurately portrays the state of the World: America is mankind’s last hope...if we go down, there is no place to go.

Interestingly, Russia had a constitution very similar to ours. The problem was the Commies did not follow it.

We are rapidly moving in that direction as we are not following ours now either. What were a few changes here and there like the direct election of Senators and the passage of other amendments which included the “income tax amendment” morphed into not bothering to change the language in the bill of rights, rather, using laws which were later found to be “constitutional” such as the Patriot Act and condemnation of property to allow for higher taxes to more quickly water down or defeat enumerated rights. Now we allow a president to rule by edict without regard to any bounds and there is a ho hum reaction by both parties.

King George was nothing compared to the undocumented Tyrant.

Both Benjamin Franklin and Pres. Reagan understood;
and is not the latter's comment below is already true?

"There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not,
if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh
- get first all the people's money,
then their lands,
and then make them and their children servants forever.
It will be said that we do not propose to establish kings.
I know it. But there is a natural inclination in mankind
to kingly government. ....
I am apprehensive - therefore - perhaps too apprehensive -
that the government of these States may in future times
end in a monarchy [not called a monarchy
but an executive with monarchial powers].

But this catastrophe, I think, may long be delayed,
if in our proposed system we do not sow the seeds
of contention, faction and tumult, by making
our posts of honor places of profit.
If we do, I fear that, though we employ at first a number
and not a single person, the number will in time
be set aside, it will only nourish the fetus of a king
... and a king will the sooner be set over us."

Benjamin Franklin

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
President Ronald Reagan

Deprive the gubmint from taxes where you can. You need anything done to your house? pay the contractor under the table. He can do the work after regular workhours. That way he makes extra money and you do not pay taxes on the job.

So where do we sign-up for this rebellion? Seriously.

Is there a leader coming to the forefront? A specific group or organization? Oath-keepers? Or is this a leaderless rebellion?

I feel rudderless...

We really should study how the Brits, Aussies etc. dealt with the disarming efforts of their governments. What worked,what didn’t, and so forth. The time to do that is right now. Let’s learn from it and not be unprepared when the time comes.

Which is why obama, like king george, seeks to confiscate our guns...

then, top it off with 11 million new socialist voters, and we have a socialist system of govt.

anyone who still believes the political process will save us, is just whistling dixie...ain’t gonna happen...

People won't have a choice of the things you speak of. I suggest you do a web search for "selco bosnia" and read how life was in Bosnia during their war. Will you still think people will be watching "Okrah?"

"In Bosnia in the 1990′s the electrical grid and water utilities went down, thus there was no heat in the winter and no potable water available for drinking. The currency and banking system were non-existent and commerce in its traditional form came to a standstill – leaving only barter as a way to acquire goods. The food supply and transportation systems fell apart. Police, fire, and medical services disappeared. Violence, disease and death spread throughout the region. Few were prepared for what would follow." This is Selco’s story.

Life won't be anywhere near what we now consider normal when the rebellion starts and if anyone is not prepared, they are in for a world of hurt. Hell, even those who have prepared will have a life of hell for quite a while.

The survivors will be overwhelmingly conservative and will have a good chance of re-instituting a "Constitutional Republic."

I know, I know... :)

But just a word to the wise...

In the past some good FReepers have had visits from interested parties regarding posts made on this or other forums.
The current regime has made quite a lot of good people very angry.

Thats all.

But they would have to have proof which would be very hard to produce.

If your question was directed at me, I am not advocating an armed rebellion...has not worked well before and won’t now because the media will portray any group doing this as wide eyed rightwing zoobies.

The way back is to get behind leaders who support your cause i.e. 400K marched on DC against abortion the other day, thousands marched locally against second amendment violations etc. We are never going to convince the 100% committed lefties to change, we don’t have to, but we must convince the 70% or so who are not committed lefty voters to move toward conservatism views.

The last election was a good example, Romney and presumable more than a few republicans lost elections because not enough people voted for them. The lefties were not able to duplicate their turnout from 08. A few hundered K changes in votes for the non obama, not just into not voting, and the outcome of the election and the course of the country would have been altered. Maybe not the conservative panacia we would like but at least the jerk would not have been free to turn ever farther to the left then he was before. Inertia must be stopped before change can occur.

Just like turning a ship, change is not going to happen overnight.
