The fallacy of the "Legitimacy of Government" resistance
If my analysis in the below post is accurate, we will begin to see a new level of brazen use of Government force as a weapon by the Political Class. We'll see things like the President re-starting the UN Small Arms Treaty process within hours of re-election. We'll see things like a continued ramping up of Police State assets (hardware in public operation) and continued expansion of DHS presence on buses, on the streets, and checkpoints everywhere. We'll see political enemies investigated by Government without the usual "CYA" excuses - the investigators will begin to drop the pretense and stop worrying about the "optics" of their actions.
If you, as a Patriot blogger or general Patriot, have chosen a course of resistance centered on "challenging the legitimacy of Government", you are wasting your time, your energy, and distracting your audience from preps and actions that will have value when the hammer falls. Please understand that no matter what you say or think, this Federal Government has the Legitimacy of the vast majority of the Governed. Period. The 60 million who voted for President Obama are rabidly supportive of the current agenda, and the vast majority of those who voted for Romney are supportive of his approach to governance, which we all know is simply a "more gentle" version of the President's agenda. (I do not lump in you folks who voted for Romney to slow the collapse)
I say this particularly to the bloggers in our community: If your strategy of resistance is to "reveal the illegitimacy of this Government", I implore you to examine your course and consider a more active agenda for the sake of your audience. While most Patriots would argue, correctly in my opinion, this Government has no legitimacy because it wields power without Constitutional restraint, the reality on the ground cannot be ignored. The vast majority of Americans dismiss your (and my) view of Government, and will cheer when you and your audience are prosecuted for anti-American activities. In hardcore reality, this Government has legitimacy because they have the consent of the (vast majority) of the Governed.
Please start hammering on your sites the importance of your audience to take real-world, tangible steps to protect themselves against the coming genocide that will be fully targeted upon them. Stop trying to win hearts and minds. Stop wasting time trying to win debates. The Enemies of Liberty do not care about your reasoned discourse, and they have no interest or capacity to let you live and let live.
Please advise your audience to pay Mosby to teach them real tactics.
Please tell your audience to get into a Krav Maga class, ASAP.
Please beg your audience to find like-minded Patriots and make real-world networks, even if they have to move out of their current suburb in order to have real Patriots at their shoulders.
Please counsel your audience that we can pick up the debates about how many forms of tyranny can fit upon the head of a pin after the real enemy, the enemy that is currently on the ground and in their faces, has been defeated.
Every single blogger I read advocates building Tribe. Most Patriots are so few in number that they are isolated, with no real Patriots even within easy driving range. Tell your audience it is OK to move, to find a town that has favorable geography and demography, where a dozen Patriot families, or a hundred families, can move into town and build the Tribe they so desperately need. An isolated Patriot in a suburb with 6 months of food in the pantry, at some point, will be ordered to put groceries on the curb so they can be picked up by city workers and delivered to .gov redistribution centers "to help feed hungry people". Failure to comply will be a death sentence. Some will choose that death. So be it. But please tell your audience that there is no shame in re-locating to build Tribe and give themselves a fighting chance.
For those of you who have taken the decision to remain in place, so be it. I respect your decision, because I know many of you have weighed every option and decided, for your own reasons, to stay. But there is a large percentage of our readers who have not yet moved from the theory of resistance to the real-world application of resistance, and this must change, right now.
Bloggers: Please drop the "Legitimacy of Government" meme and push hard for your audience to get into the meat of how to resist.
Patriots: If you look into your heart and know that you are not ready, get ready. Or, you will die. Your family will die. Your women will be raped and used as mattresses by the genetic filth that will soon be unleashed. Look into your own heart, when you are alone, and be honest with yourself. Are you ready? If not, fix it.
A quick test for Patriots who think they are ready to handle a hand-to-hand deathfight: Throw a heavy-bag on the ground and straddle it, and then for 60 seconds punch the hell out of that bag at full speed, no stopping. Drop fists, drop elbows, shift and throw knees into the bag, at full speed for 60 seconds. I am willing to bet most of you will be ready to puke at the end of it.
Now consider doing it in kit. Now consider having to do it in the midst of a Stack.
Now consider how effective your "Legitimacy of Government" argument would be in that Stack.
If you are not ready, fix it.
If you have no real Patriots in your AO, consider a new AO, right now.
