Quote of the Week: March 16-22, 2014

Even some of the true believers are getting tired:

Well, lets hear your plan on how to first convince enough people to join in your crusade, then explain how you are going to fund the new government(s) and their military to stand up to another attack by those states(groups) that do not secede, and while you are at it, what kind of weapons and where will you get them to stand up to the weapons of the U.S. military?

The followup response adds more common sense:

Well, even though I do not like the way things are going, it is getting VERY tiresome seeing people yell “let’s secede” with no plan, no idea of what they are getting into, most of whom have either not tried, or have given up trying, to change things in any other way. Many do not vote, the easiest way to make changes, then cry when no changes are made.

When the revolution starts, it will be posted on Facebook.

Or is that when the secession starts … ?

    Sad thing to read how second nature and expected it’s become, that you should make war on those who declare their independence and withdraw their consent to be governed. That is a very colonial British sentiment. I guess we celebrate the 4rth of July, only because we defeated the British in a military contest and nothing more. Sure, we were freed from them but how nice it may have been be to perpetually free. I wonder why the revolutionary generation did not make it permanent, so that the following generations would always be able to do what they did but without war.
    Too bad Thomas Jefferson or somebody, didn’t draw up a document that would grant to the people the inalienable right to abolish and form a new government and do so freely, with out war. It has been suggested that they tried but I guess it only lasted until 1861.

      Saying it is so doesn’t make it so … but thanks for the perspective. I only wonder why you think that switching your screen name would somehow fool someone, “Z. Y.” It’s been a while …
