Battle of Athens: Are we there yet?
Folks, consider this a rhetorical post.
I'm not one to whisper of plots or play behind-the-scenes games. I speak my mind, publicly. If Patrick Henry and the rest of our Founders were willing to risk Life, treasure and Sacred Honor, I will not diminish their bravery by whispering in secret.
Most of you are familiar with the Battle of Athens Tennessee in 1946. If not, here's the Wiki.
In a nutshell, a bunch of GI's fresh from WWII kicked their local politicians out of office at the muzzle of their weapons.
Are we there yet?
If 50 Patriots decided to use the Athens Model and make a point for the country to see, would you want to participate? Are you there yet, or would you simply wish them well and stay where you are?
Obviously, most would go into such an adventure with the full understanding it is an Alamo event. At best, you'd probably die in prison.
And I dare say that 99% of the public, at least, would condemn any Patriotic Op along the Athens Model, whether it involved taking a City Hall or simply involved mustering in full kit and marching peaceably on Leviathan, in a place and manner that offends our Masters.
This is a post for consideration, not necessarily discussion. Do not indict yourself by commenting unwisely.
Think about it.
This deserves a poll. If you worry about Uncle Sugar tracking your answers, don't respond on the poll.
