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.

It seems that there is a race to implode the US. The Leftists want a gradual implosion that results in a relatively smooth transition to a police state. The Left is implementing an incremental loss of 2A, 1A, and 4A, that way, there will be a weaker consensus for resistance. Publicly financed PR campaigns against guns, against hate speech bully comfortable moderates conservatives in to PC submission. TSA groin checks at airports and new check points are getting the plebs used to tyranny.
However, a rapid implosion will result in an over-reach and backlash. The, we at least might have a chance.

George III was a benign benefactor compared to Obama and his minions.You are correct sir, and injustice has been the law of the land for quite some time. That rebellion could happen, is almost a given, but which side will the armed forces come down on? That is the question.

I very much disagree. Only GOD can save this country.

We are in this mess because, in many ways, we have ignored Him and His Wisdom.

flattered myself that without very much bloodshed, it might be done."

It is precisely love of country which motivates the desire to avoid the Colonel’s conclusion.
Our Country was founded on ideas- bold ideas. Those ideas/ideals are being stolen (BHO 2nd Inagural Address) and turned into something quite different. This battle needs to be waged on an intellectual front. I refuse to believe the citizens of this country are that far gone that they cannot be convinced through passionate argumentation. I’ll admit it’s an uphill struggle, but I’m not ready to give up on it, or them.

“That rebellion could happen, is almost a given, but which side will the armed forces come down on? That is the question.”

I think the military will break 50/50, same with LEO.

“When Injustice becomes Law, Resistance becomes Duty.”...Thomas Jefferson.

As over wrought as Sellin appears today, what he said here is no less applicable than were the pre-revolution writings of our key founding fathers.

As I’ve posted before, I am surprised that an “incremental” revolution hasn’t already begun; one in which certain corrupt politicians and some of their evil enablers in the media, have simply disappeared, never to be heard from again. One by one: poof!

Yes indeed.

Perhaps a quote from Common Sense ll

The future of this great nation is imperiled as it has not been since the revolutionary war. Slowly, ever so slowly, our freedoms have evaporated into the air of a slow motion tyranny. As Americans this was the only way to conquer us—so slowly that most of us accepted a “small” encroachment here and a “small” encroachment there, as necessary to satisfy the ever increasing hunger of the statist.

I agree that the First Republic is coming to an end.

I blame Congress as much, if not more, than Obama. Obama is a symptom of the crisis, Congress' failure to protect their exclusive legislative powers and their inability to manage the value of money IS the crisis.

In any event, because something has to change, it will. A cursory acquaintance with history suggests a Sulla, or a Cromwell. We were very lucky with GEN Washington.

Gestures of rebellion with the US Armed Forces on the other side, while gallant, are futile. As pointed out by ouchthatonehurt, there is a lot of political work to be done before the inflection point.

There must be a disloyal political movement. By disloyal, I mean a political movement that renounces the legitimacy of Congress' acts of pretended legislation and that denies their right to rule. This movement must not be armed - that's ANOTHER movement's job. Members of our movement elected to Congress will refuse to take their seats, but they will not face arrest.

As the rightness of the movement becomes better known, the righteousness of armed resistance will be understood by more than could understand it today.

The goal is to expel the corrupt occupation regime and to replace it with a legal, constitutional government. People who think that can be accomplished by patriot rifle squads fighting the US Army and Marine Corps are not engaged with reality.

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....

Any ideas?

Stop flying.

Everbody, stop flying

“First among them is the fact that the people are represented.”

Yes, and how is that taxation WITH representation working out for you?
