Adam Kokesh and others have initiated an event for July 4 this year which I support. I tried to post this to Facebook but it has a limited word count. So, here it is in full:
If you think about it, the very country that has shed blood and sacrificed lives defending our freedoms is now shedding blood and murdering to take them away. This country was founded to uphold and protect individual liberty. It is now being used to enslave us and restrict our natural rights.
America the eagle has become America the dragon. THIS IS WHY WE PROTEST.
I love my country. I'm in awe of how blessed I am to have been born here. We all are so lucky. Truly, this should unite us and encourage us to respect one another and to retain what has been given to us through struggle and sacrifice. Should we just let it slip away?
I love my country. I hate my government. It is robbing me, my children, and my children's children to pay for illegal and unjust wars, entitlements I don't support, and "art" I don't value.
It is time to slaughter the dragon and resurrect the eagle.
It is time for us to get back to individual liberty and personal responsibility. It is time for us to get back to respect and charity. We must throw off the shackles of our "leaders." We peacefully asked for the shackles to be removed. They declined. So now we must throw them off.
We have, now, for many years, attempted to find restoration through legal means. We have peacefully requested our liberties be returned to us. We have respectfully preached true liberty. These requests have gone unheeded. They have been ignored. So now, we must go to Plan B, which is not so peaceful and not so respectful. Do not say we did not give the beast a chance. Do not say our petitions were not made. Do not say our voices were not heard.
2012. A turning point? 2012. America's watershed moment. Will America wake up to what's right, or will she continue to suckle the government teat? Will we elect someone who loves liberty, or someone who loves power and wealth? It is the last chance we have to avoid violence, because if we don't get our liberty back, we're going to take it back.
Those who disagree with this display of original independence are zombie "patriots" and need to wake up. You would have been on the King's side in American Revolution 1.0! Comes American Revolution 2.0... with whom shall you stand?! STAND WITH US! With whom shall you fight? FIGHT WITH US!
FOR LIBERTY! FOR LIBERTY! FOR LIBERTY!
