WHO'S AFRAID OF A LITTLE DISSENT ? {click here for news link}

Revolution is part of our Political makeup, along with freedom of speech and religion (read my blog also at Second Amendment for Dummies Tuesday, June 24, 2008 & First Amendment - Religious Clause, for Complete Dummies Wednesday, July 02, 2008). It's part of America's belief in what makes democracy and our republic. The Right of Revolution is a basic tenet of all our Great Leaders of American History! It is an accepted part of 'The Rights of Man'. It has never been a Crime in America, to voice a possible overthrow of the government. It has never been a Crime in America to join your neighbors in 'the militia meetings'. These are our roots as Citizens of The United States of America! Now in the actual acts of rebellion, look to your own consequences, however before the act, it all is within THE RIGHTS. I am not advocating Revolution against My Country at this time, only reaffirming All Our Rights We Retain, to plan, to speak, to meet. Only in the carrying out of plans to overthrow the government are they then on their own to meet their own consequences and with those who have joined in the revolt. It is Unconstitutional for any U.S. or State Government Official to interfere or intervene prior to the actual plot to overthrow the government. The following quotes are found on: ... whenever the Legislators endeavour to take away, and destroy the Property of the People, or to reduce them to Slavery under Arbitrary Power, they put themselves into a state of War with the People, who are thereupon absolved from any farther Obedience, and are left to the common refuge which God hath provided for all men against force and violence. ... [Power then] devolves to the People, who have a Right to resume their original Liberty, and, by the Establishment of a new Legislative (such as they shall think fit) provide for their own Safety and Security, which is the end for which they are in Society.more John Locke quotes But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.more Declaration of Independence quotes What country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.more Thomas Jefferson quotes This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their Constitutional right of amending it or their revolutionary right to dismember it or overthrow it.more Abraham Lincoln quotes They [the founders] proclaimed to all the world the revolutionary doctrine of the divine rights of the common man. That doctrine has ever since been the heart of the American faith.more Dwight D. Eisenhower quotes Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels -- men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, we may never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.more Dwight D. Eisenhower quotes
