Some are asking the age old question of "when do we decide to band together, take a stand, resist a corrupt government and finally fight". Let me give some history on those subjects. I added some words in places to show our current situation compared to times past. America and The English: The United States of America is a free independent country (States) now. Before 1776, America was not an independent country. It was a group of colonies.(now STATES) England (Now our Corrupt American Government) controlled these colonies.(States) Many American Colonists (Patriots) did not want to be controlled by the British (U.S) government anymore. The founders decided they could not and would not be controlled by a Government that wanted to control everything in their daily lives and high taxes. Our founders decided to resist, I.e the tea party action. Then our founding fathers began organizing and preparing to fight. The fight was hard, outnumbered and out gunned. Still the Patriots we now know as our founding fathers prevailed and won our independence, for themselves, and our families today. Reason #2.. When Abraham Lincoln was elected as president in 1860. Southerners thought the government was becoming too strong. They did not think the government had the right to tell them how they should live. Southerners felt if they stayed in the United States, the North would control them. Some southern states decided they had no choice. They decided to secede, or leave, the United States. South Carolina was the first to leave the Union and form a new nation called the Confederate States of America. Four months later, six other states seceded. They were Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas and Louisiana. Later Virginia, Arkansas, North Carolina, and Tennessee joined them. The people of these states elected Jefferson Davis as president of the Confederacy. The northern states were called the Union. President Lincoln said he would fight to keep the southern states as part of the United States. There were Union forts on Confederate land. The Confederates wanted Union soldiers to leave these forts. In Charleston, South Carolina there was a Union fort called Fort Sumter. The Union soldiers refused to leave this fort, so the Confederates fired cannons at the fort on April 12, l861. This was the beginning of the Civil War. Once again, the ultimate reason for these wars was because of the Governments tyrannical efforts to fully control the people and force the people and sovereign States to bow down to its wishes, either by force or any other means necessary. Wether you agree with the English, Americans, patriots, or confederates, the wars were necessary to stop the Government from controlling the people like ants under their feet. Opinion: I believe that history not only our history but history throughout time for thousands of years, from the time of Athens, and Sparta against the Persians, the crusaders against the Arabs, the American Indians against the US Army, there is a time to resist and fight. Are we free anymore? Have we become slaves to society, to be walked on by a Government that only looks at you in disgust because your below them. Have we become only to passive or scared to resist because we would rather accept their laws and rules, rather than fight them, because we have a job, some money, a new car, and a wife and kids, that you don't want to upset your life, you will just accept what ever happens. Or are we descendants of our forefathers, who will kiss our children by, tell your wife you hope to see her as soon as you can, and go to the fight so that your children will be free to live, to peruse life liberty and happiness as our great constitution declared for all of us. Will your children be slaves to be trampled on, or free men and women, who tell their children stories of the great warriors, who stood up against the evil government, and won the war, so that all people, will never have to live scared, or fearful, again. That all men and women will forever be free and equal. Where do you Stand?
It matters NOT if you're from and by that I mean raised in the city or country. What does matter is your understanding not only of the history of Our America and what sacrifices have been made to establish Our way of life, but you must also understand the sacrifices the men and women have already made with not only their limbs but their Lives as well. R.I.P Brothers & Sisters. Most citizens today know that things are wrong in this country. We The People have realized that tyranny has laid its grasp upon the people and the laws of the land and it has corrupted the entire landscape across our nation. We The People have learned these things slowly over the years as the evidence has become more and more prevalent. As We The People learn of the treacherous deeds of our government, and the corporate degenerates they have chosen to serve, We The People have become angry and We The People seek to support the defense of our country in one way or another. We The People now find ourselves looking at a government that has nearly the ultimate control over the people, they have SOME of us so fearful of reprisal that they cower down at the mere raise of a fist. If We The People keep submitting to their tyrannical systems of slowly gaining control of our lives piece by piece, to the point that one day We The People will wake up and we will not have a single freedom left. ALL THE LIVES OUR SOLDIERS WILL HAVE BEEN IN VAIN! Remember when you think of Veterans as: -------------- About me: I was raised in both the city until 8 years old and then the country.
