Most of us have seen the Declaration of War that is circulating as a result of NDAA. Several of you have sent me copies, and I have read them on blogs.
If you haven't seen it, here is a version at AP's place.
This Declaration is getting wide attention beyond just our community, and that is good.
But is it not just another toothless line in the sand that will not be defended?
So the men and women in Government have declared their authority to treat you as an enemy combatant and send you to Gitmo. The key word is declared. To date they have not done it. So, it is a threat.
And we have declared a state of war in response? Where is the shooting? Where is the war? If you sign on to this thing, are you leaving the porch now? Have you identified the first targets you intend to disappear?
More likely it will rise to the level of a bit of sabre-rattling and then we'll let it reside in the archive folder, just one more undefended bit of bluster.
Why do I reach this conclusion? Because nothing has changed with the signing of the NDAA and the particular legislation that has everyone hyperventilating.
The Enemies of Liberty already claim the authority to come for you. But they have actually been doing it for years, and to date there has been no action on any Green. No, we bluster and rattle our sabres with cries of No more Wacos, Not one more inch, No more Ruby Ridges., and we declare that the very legitimacy of the Government has been surrendered...and we do nothing about it when agents of Government cram the ultimata down our throats, daring us to make a move when they murder Guerena or march people out of homes in Alaska. Where is the action regarding ObamaCare, which is nothing less than mandated enslavement. No declaration there?
State of war? Really?
If you mean the words in the declaration, and you mean to back them up, carry on and good hunting.
I'll believe it when I see it. Unless you are ready to step off the porch on this one, right now, I would caution that more harm will be done by disseminating this declaration than not. The last thing we need is one more undefended line in the sand.
