The III Percent Mission Statement: Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will
within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. ~ Thomas Jefferson
In the absence of orders, go find something Evil and kill it!

We gave Them our Consent...
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. ~ Declaration of Independence
Please read the words, do not just skim because you have already read them before.
I underlined and bolded the section most pertinent to this column today.
We have given our consent.
Swallow that pill - it is bitter and it sucks. But if you are lying to yourself, now is the time to stop.
We gave our consent, and we continue to give our consent, to some extent, every single day.
I think that Restoration - whether to the Constitution as written and intended, or to a place of Liberty that existed between the Constitution and Declaration - can only happen once you and I and every Patriot accepts full, absolute and unequivocal responsibility for our current state of affairs. The fault lies at our feet. And once we accept that Hard Truth, we can listen to Mr. Jefferson and the words he wrote above, and morally do the Hard Things that will be required to accomplish Restoration.
Before you begin to argue about responsibility: Yes, Bad People have been gaming the system for many generations before you and I were born. Yes, you and I have worked hard and provided for ourselves and never taken Government money that we did not earn (Vets - you EARNED your pay and benefits). Yes, our fathers, grandfathers, and even theirs, could and should have strangled this tyranny in the cradle.
But they didn't do it.
Now it is you, me and our posterity who face eternal tyranny unless we kill it.
How do I dare charge you - and myself - with responsibility for cleaning up this mess and routing the Tyrants from our midst - by any f'n means necessary?
Holly and I spent this past weekend with Mr. & Mrs. X, as I have said elsewhere. Also, as I have said elsewhere, over dinner conversation Mr. X reminded me of Edmund Burke: All that is necessary for Evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing.
If you are a Good Man or Woman, it is time to stand up and Kill the Evil in our midst.
You have a moral obligation to do something.
Not every one of my readers will agree that a moral obligation exists - we'll agree to disagree. I do not think a single one of my readers would stand idly by and watch a woman be raped. In my Moral Code, I can extrapolate a physical rape in front of my eyes to the same Evil that has captured so many People in our midst - they all have to go, folks.
How they go, by choice or by force or by facing their fellow Countrymen for Crimes against Humanity and Treason, is currently their choice. Soon, their options will be limited.
Can I make a convincing argument that current politicians, their voters, their supporters and their enforcers are committing Crimes against Humanity and Treason? Yes. I have handled the Treason part ad nauseum on this blog and my Kerodin.com columns, and my first book. Crimes against Humanity is an easy reach from there.
Evil can never be completely eradicated from the Human animal. But I will refer you to Colonel Cooper on this one: The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
Rifles alone are NOT THE ANSWER. Make no mistake. Our Founders did not rely upon only the Rifleman, the Militiaman, the Minuteman. Every Colony set up a political structure and voted-in their Leaders, openly in challenge to the system the King demanded. Pamphleteers never quite fighting. It was NOT all about picking up a rifle then, and that can't be the answer today.
A polygonal battle space requires a polygonal solution.
Folks, better, more moral, more righteous, and more able men have walked this planet than me. They secured Liberty for a brief moment in the Human experience, and many better men than I have devoted their lives to Restoring that Liberty. Many have died in this pursuit.
It is my time to try - and by God I will give it all I've got.
It is time to stand up and be counted - for you and for me.
It is time to face Evil, and if it refuses to yield, it is time to make it submit, or kill it.
What say you, Patriots?

I may not qualify as a Patriot and I surely recognize that a moral obligation can only arise by one's own choice within one's own soul, but I'll say this---IMO you got it down pat with this post. IOW, accurate SITREP.ReplyDelete
It's ONLY about consent and THAT'S what made this country what it was, once upon a time. Now it's a hodgepodge of going along to get along, each person thinking that he ought to support the madness because the next guy does too. Yet almost nobody really supports it, were they to express themselves honestly.
That's because almost every person is decent and isn't seeking to loot and mooch from others. let alone tyrannize them. They just figure that everyone else thinks it's moral, so they ought to go along. Who are they to think for themselves, when all the "experts" and "authorities" say otherwise?
When the fear goes down and the courage goes up, then everything will change. Till then it's the same 'ol, same 'ol...untold millions enslaved, maimed and killed, all so the very worst among us can live their filthy lives of ease and comfort. What a scam.
Nice post. Forward! WIN!!
When and where?ReplyDelete
Amen. Well said.ReplyDelete
Let me be clear. The present Federal government is illegitimate. It's form and power is not in congruence with what our Founders envisioned.ReplyDelete
It does not have my consent.
However, it does have my animosity, disrespect, and condemnation.
This may sound ridiculous, but what if we could just instutute our our own constitutional government right now . I mean completley ignore the federal system today and start our own in their face, out in the open, just declare them all fired and rebuild the system without them. Could you imagine if the people just went ahead and elected new leaders and pretended the existing ones now didnt exist. Ignore all their regulations, quit paying them taxes, etc. As I write this it is starting to sound ridiculous, maybe im just day dreaming out loud. I guess my whole point is if the only reason they have any power at all is because we go along, why dont we just stop? All of us just tell the feds to FUCK OFF and just become America again without them?Delete
For my wacked out daydream to even have a remote chance, you would need alot of cash to fund a major media campaign to spread the message that Americans are getting back to America and to hell with the feds. Even if just the patriot community got on board we'd have the people to get it rolling. Ok, im all done, daydream over.
JD in NY
Sounds about right to me, JD. I think it's not so much about money, but defense. Alan's working on that now.Delete
Yea, I think you are right about that Jim, the moment you do what Im suggesting, the threat of violence against you is immenent. I guess thats the whole conundrum, choose liberty- real liberty, face death shortly there after. I guess nothing will happen until things are so bad that death isnt as bad as what will happen without action. What to do what to do...Delete
No Compromise, No Capitulation, No Quarter Asked, No Quarter Given......Liberty or Death!ReplyDelete
Nice dream though JD ;)

A Republic... IF we can keep it.ReplyDelete
Ooops! Too late for that.
A Republic... IF we get our wavering asses off the internet and take DECISIVE action to reclaim it.
