As I watch in horror and disgust at what our Legislators are doing to this country, I realize my anger and horror are misplaced.

After all, what is more discouraging…….
These Lawmakers in DC or the knowledge that they are merely a reflection of the American population who put them there???
Spewing anger at the people on top of the corruption, i.e. our Lawmakers, and expecting results would be about as futile as trying to chop down a bad tree by climbing to the top of the tree with an ax.
My grandfather always said, the best way to ground a bad tree is to either start chopping at the base or poison the roots.

With that in mind, folks, we must turn our efforts to the people in our own back yard who sent these Anti-American socialists/communists to DC..

This massive tree did not sprout up over night and it’s not going to fall with a slight push…
It’s roots are deep and strong because WE remained silent as it grew stronger and larger by the day… over decades.

We have to educate our neighbors, co-workers, children, and families/friends. No longer can we live by the old rule that there are two things you do not discuss at family gatherings, among friends, or at work…. RELIGION AND POLITICS.

The truth is …. what we are talking about here is no longer RELIGION AND POLITICS…
There is no grey area… no compromise. Those who are serious about restoring our Constitutional Republic must adopt the spirit of our Founding Fathers… “Give me Liberty, or Give me Death.”
The direction our nation is headed has no room for liberty. Don’t be fooled,… You can’t have it both ways.. A nation that taxes it’s people at the rate our citizens are being taxed is a nation that is oppressing its people.
A nation that forces a tax on it’s people for a healthcare program that violates their religious principles and moral values, is a nation that is trampling the Constitutional rights of its citizens.

So… grab the ax of truth and lets get busy chopping away at the base of support for this corrupt tree.
None of us individually has a large enough ax to make a dent, but if all of us get busy chopping away at the same base, together we will bring this tree down.

    You read my mind. When you send your troops in to battle and they are too few to turn the tide, one does not punish them for their failure but regroups, change tactics, resupply and make new plans.

    Take up you pitch forks and sickles and storm the castle. I can’t say that this will not work, because I believe it will with even a small percentage of the population. The problem is not just that so many have been conditioned to take the handouts, but almost without exception everyone partakes of the benefits. For instance, you use a state issued identification card to identify YOU. Who are YOU? Are you the corporate entity that that state issued identification card identifies? You accept and use the benefit of the use of debt dollars. The use and profit of the use (benefit) is what the IRS is taxing. Even if you use those debt dollars to exchange for silver, you used the dollar and all profits/benefits from the use of the silver is taxable. President Obama said it himself; if this country is to be saved it will be the private sector that saves it. Private is not public just a Republic is not Democracy. All your dealings/trade must be Private without benefits. I think that the way to chop down a poisoned tree is to starve it of its necessary nutritional source, suckling from the public. As it withers and more relearn how to remove themselves from the Public and remain exclusively in the Private Republic fewer benefits will be available for those who choose to accept them. More Public Persons will choose to abandon them because there are more benefits in the Private Republic.
