I started writing online 5 years ago, in support of my first published political book.
Here's an analysis based on everything I have done with you in the last five years, my life experiences prior to that, and what I see in the world in June 2015.
Small groups of Patriots are prepping, training and improving their positions for The Big Ugly. Not enough are training seriously, not enough are - blah, blah. I'm speaking to the few who are actually doing work, not the vast majority who are just wasting days of their lives by pecking on keyboards.
Fact: No event in modern America has riled people on a scale approaching the Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party, the march toward Concord for munitions and rabble-rousers, or Sumter. Make no mistake, events of equal scale have happened, several times, but the response of We the People has been a shrug, a waggled finger, a shake of the head meant to connote frustration and maybe even anger. But nothing has been of significant magnitude to lead men to arms. The Return to Sender gig ruffled feathers across the country - that is a fact. Tempers flared. But no one punched, tarred & feathered or drew a bead on a Tyrant or one of his Enforcers over it. (Agreed - we did what we intended to do, and we dared Sparky to make a move - and he did not. Still a bit curious over that one...)
Bundy came closest. Americans did muster, with arms displayed and with full intent to use them if their line in the sand had been crossed. Once again - Sparky chose to stand down.
The Waco Massacre (Waco I or the recent Waco II biker gig) has not led anyone to the Green. TPP has not, either. Flying airliners filled with 3rd World people into the country and turning them loose hasn't sent anyone hunting. The fraud of the Dollar and manipulation of gold that has made a mediocre cut of steak $15 and hamburger nearly $4/lb at the market hasn't sent anyone out poaching, much less poaching Tyrants. The list of 'Intolerable Acts' could be argued to be long - except that most Americans choose to tolerate them.
So: I must conclude - based not on mere speculation, but exhaustive evidence - that there will be no Lexington, with a follow-on Concord, without a serious, paradigm-altering event. Something along the lines of a sudden financial collapse that makes most people literally hungry.
Political outrage isn't going to do it. Moral outrage has proven to be a dead strand in the DNA of most Americans. The overwhelming majority of Americans - 99%+ - have demonstrated time and again they will endure most any shame or degradation imposed upon them by those who mean to be Masters.
Prep and train, folks. Meet people who think as you think.
But unless you are willing to start this fight, or Team Evil does something stupid, this is over.
