From Rabble Such As This, Rise a People Whom Defy Kings.

Posted on Updated on

What purpose do any of our freedoms serve if we have no means to protect them? Are we not only as strong as our own weakest link? Surely the people are strong when united, but when the fist of angered men crashes down with might and power, what is our powerless response? Thomas Jefferson was an extraordinarily insightful man as a founding father, and is attributed to the saying “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.”

It is important to remember the fallacy of this statement, however. The government of the United States does not grant rights, and it does not allocate freedom. Rather, the Constitution of the United States expressly states that we have these rights, and that the government is not to infringe upon them.

We are in the midst of a time when all this is called into question. Not only is the validity of our sanctified freedoms under fire, but our resilience as a culture. Surely one can watch from afar in the land of tea and crumpets calling us ‘cowboys’ and claiming out guns will be our downfall. In truth, however, clinging to our guns is the only thing that has saved this nation from absolute dissolution. To believe that war has become less popular in the modern era because we have grown too fond of it is a statement of profound ignorance. As we sit here today, our brothers and sisters are arming themselves. Civil War exists the same as cannibalism exists. It is so far fetched that the American people could stomach a revolution again. In this same notion, however, we could never stomach slavery. Thus, it is undeniable that our nation will come to blows. To claim we would rather die than to eat fellow man as a means of survival is absurd. Our fear of leaving the happy bubble we live in is influencing our thought process, but when starvation and deprivation drag you within an inch of death itself, all of life come into question. You begin to see the flaws in every member of your party. Who is the weakest? Who could you do without? Who has angered you? Who shall be the one you choose?

Revolution is the same way. Those who are most likely to fight for the cause are those who have the most to lose. It is the same, however, that these individuals have the most to gain.

The Cold War has begun. Ammunition cannot be found anywhere you go. First it was the common calibers, 9mm, 45ACP, 40S&W, .223/5.56, and 7.62×39. Those who have already been patiently awaiting the acids and infestations of our nation to eat away at our innards see the early signs, and began rapid preparations. Then it spread like wildfire. Pistol grip rifles, gone. AR-15’s, gone. AK-47’s, gone. Magazines, equipment, parts, barrels, everything…gone.

It used to be just another ammo and gun rush. Same as the election, same as the Aurora shooting, same as always. Now its something worse. Assault Weapons Bans are passing, Congressmen and State legislators are proposing confiscation, and weapons are being outlawed. Lines are being drawn, families are moving to states with fortitude, and homesteads are becoming the talk of the town. People are going off the grid with their firearms, ammo, and equipment. Mobilization from public water, electric, and gas systems are moving to independent, clean, alternate energies.

This is not a society preparing for a doomsday. We are not preparing for an economic spike where we may have to defend our homes. It isn’t just a matter of getting ammunition while it is cheap, it is about getting what you can when it is available, regardless the price. Our nation is preparing for war. Like our forefathers at Lexington and Concord, stockpiles of weapons are emerging and springing up. The day the regulars march on our homes to reduce the patriots will be a day we all dread.

The numbers are amounting, supplies are dwindling, and every party or social gathering has the wind down period where men and their sons, neighbors, fathers, friends, and co-workers gather on the dark porches of the homes, smoking their pipes and cigars, sipping their whiskey as they discuss the future of their families.

Law Enforcement are drawing their lines in the sand, taking their stand against tyranny or rebellion. Soldiers wait for their enlistments to run out, some to renew for a bonus, others for reasons their own. Groups of men gather to practice battle drills, discuss fallout locations, procedures, rosters, and planning for the worst case scenarios, scenarios that are more and more becoming a great possibility.

It wasn’t much different than this that our nation was born. I don’t even think it was planned, or synchronized by like minded persons or groups. Their were no crazies, and few groups that took this as an opportunity to recruit. It simply happened. We really did just wake up one day to find our freedoms under fire. And now, now we are seeing what a nation becomes when its government declares war on the freedoms of its citizenry. The bars, pubs, taverns, and back rooms are filled with soft spoken revolutionaries. The whispers of men prepared to take upon themselves their sword and shield, to mount and ride for the cause of liberty, are growing in the darkness.

All that is required for the success of evil is for good men to do nothing. Do not be mislead. The good men are not doing nothing. The good men are biding their time, waiting for what comes next. Tyranny will not pull through, and the triumph of freedom will always be there for those who are vigilant, patient, and prepared.

    Who are the Rabble that will stand up this time? If you are one of us, then you should be doing your part now. Writing to your State and Federal Representatives…maybe even just reading the Constitution or a book that explains it like, “The 5000 Year Leap”.

    Tyranny is not something that went away in the 18th Century. Tyranny is with us here in America and all over the world. Just because it is 2013 doesn’t mean mad men are not trying to take away you God given rights!

      I have the book and I have been meaning to read it. I feel like this is my calling, to write about the issues, tell the stories, and to spread the word to the people. The Liberal media has construed things their way, I feel my call is to counter the leftist media with conservative writings and journalism on here to reinforce and back up my fellow conservatives. Also, if you read about Putnam County and their refusal to relinquish information regarding Concealed Carry License holders personal information to The Journal News, you will find that I spent most of the day calling the county clerks of New York State commending them, and other calls to The Journal News telling them what they were doing is wrong.

      The buying run on guns and ammo has done more to communicate to the Elites in DC than a million letters. Recognizing the nearly absolute corruption of politicians in DC and the impending financial disaster as an unavoidable reality should dictate your current activities. Your salvation lies entirely in your hands, nowhere near DC.

    I swore an oath to defend the constitution. I owe no politician who wishes to trample on it anything but my anger. If these poltroons believe that the people will stand for such abuse then they will wind up hanging from their heels in some gas station.

    Sadly, most everyone I know is watching pro sports on the idiot box, buying crap they don’t need with money they don’t have, or drinking themselves into a stupor at the local bar. But then, I live deep in SoCal, enemy territory. Perhaps it is different elsewhere.

        Yep! I used to live in Fayetteville. I know the state well! Spent most of my life there actually. Glad to know there is still a front of people in NC that are vigilant! The Carolinas played a vital role in our Revolution in the 18th Century. I hypothesize it will be the same.

      You’d be surprised how many supporters the cause has tucked away in Kalifornistan. Just stay vigilant, stay informed, and keep up the cause! And be sure to lobby to your local representatives.

      The truth is, most of the people ARE in front of the Idiot Box. That is why my goal is to get all over the internal and get the truth viral, get the word spread, and get people INFORMED!

    Went to the Costa Mesa, Ca. gun show yesterday. The line to get in was at least a mile long AFTER you stood in another line to get your admission. Lines for magazines and ammo were at least 100 yards long and the ammo lines stayed that way all day. You could not get near any table that had evil black rifles and prices for this stuff were very inflated. Even the military rifles from WWII carried a commanding price, especially the Garands’ You could still find deals, I did, but they were not at the tables that were specialized in one or two product liness and were found tucked into the corner of tables that had a lot of junk on them. These folks are not buying this stuff with their hard earned money just to turn it over to .gov when it says to.

    Talked to a few folks (not vendors) at the show to take the mood of the crowd. There were no smiles and the mood was very somber. Listening to the talk at the tables there were a lot of first time buyers, the average American is not taking the current political climate lightly. Lots of talk of the recent negligent discharges at some recent gun shows. No one can recall EVER hearing about even one before now, so all of a sudden we have three? False flag talk.

    Word has it through a friend, who has contacts in Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children (USMC), that the King is afraid of the Corps and would like to see it disbanded. Many below the rank of Major will most likely disobey any unconstitutional order or an order to fire on the American people. Comforting if true, only time will tell and one can hope that the rest of the armed services are of a similar persuasion. No one has any confidence in DHS.

    hbbill used a word that describes almost perfectly the mood of gunowners… “sombre.” I noticed the same feeling at a show here in the northwest. Shows used to have an almost carnival feeling with friends laughing and joking as they meet in the aisles. Not now. The friendly grin or glance is usually replaced with a grim nod of the head and pursed lips. Many of them have been in similar situations before when they had to prepare to do something they really didn’t want to do. No one wants to go into battle – I know I don’t and at my age I can’t actively “go” into any battle. But if it comes to me… I guess that’s why the mood around my house is so “sombre.”

    Great article. For my part, I have been spreading the gospel of local defense groups. Much as the colonists did in the twelve year run-up to the Revolutionary War, we must form small groups which gather to defend whichever member is attacked. I am convinced that outright confiscation cannot succeed, but that bloody examples will be made of a few to scare the rest. Who amongst us does not want to live to see their children grow up? It is up to us, whose children have grown and gone, to lead our friends and neighbors into defensive networks. If we can succeed in this, the agents of confiscation will think twice about stepping into our hornet’s nests. To borrow and twist a phrase from Winston Churchill, it won’t be the beginning of the end of tyranny, but the end of the beginning. To date, the goverment does what it wants because it does not fear the people. It’s time for that to change, and robust defensive networks are the way to do that without declaring active rebellion.

    I started buying up ammo last summer. Bought lots of other stuff too. Cant find any ammo or when you can, you are limited to 10 boxes at most places. The mood up here in the mountains of Idaho is like a powderkeg about to blow. Outsiders are not welcome. Everyone is armed. CCW classes are full as even more are added weekly. Folks up here are mostly self-reliant anyway. Foreigners from back east and Kalifornistan are especially not welcome. Even the Local FEDS I know are trying to let it be known they side with US. DHS and TSA are considered foreign invaders in my neck of the woods.

      We are under assault here in NY and surrounded by the downstaters. Cuomo’s band of mafiosis trampled our rights illegally ramming his unconstitutional legislation with the approval of both parties. We have been fighting back with rallies and thousands of letters to legislation. We have another rally feb 28 in Albany, the last one we had almost 8000. Also preparing for rally in DC in March. Who is with us? Most peeps dont know that NY city and the rest of the state are two separate ideologies , do not confuse the wood and mountain NYkers to the progressive Lib fascists in NYC. If we fail to overturn the bill, many I believe will still not comply. Others will seek relocation to American states. Don’t dismiss all NYkers if they seek refuge.

        I hear you friend! I was born in the Upstate, in Geneva in the Finger Lakes of New York! I know the area well, love it, and my dearest sympathies and support go out to my fellow countrymen. You’ll see in the Putnam County post about three weeks ago I was calling County Clerks offices all over NY regarding the Journal News and their act. Keep up the hard work fellas!

    but when it comes, our leaders including the judges who have destroyed our nation and broke every law you can think of, must be made accountable for their evil deeds, if it means firing squads, so be it. these are treasonous people, the entire nation becomes a battlefield everywhere and everyday and you will have no where to hide and if you think the military will come to your aid, forget it, they better stay in their barracks or be charged with treason also.

    Our forefathers took the crowns of Kings and tyrants and set them upon the heads of citizens; They made us kings in our own right. The great trust laid upon us with this blood won gift was that we ourselves would never be tyrants and that we would also defend against future tyranny. I would much rather walk the quiet green fields of peace if I could, but will die on the bloodstained field of battle if I must. It seems now, that the time to choose draws near.
