I have been some what part of a movement. One that distrusts the Federal government and believe they are corrupt and simply need removed and replaced. When I think of “remove and replace”, I sometimes laugh knowing how incredibly difficult it will be to accomplish that. Instead of pushing for an armed insurrection, it’s far less violent to handle this difficult task through constant education. Spreading the word, if you will. Over the years, this “movement” has grown immensely, as many as ten to twenty million now. Many are known as preppers, but far more are regular Joe’s and Joanne’s who work full-time jobs to feed their family. It’s a peaceful movement that is using our Right of Free Speech to make a difference. Finally, there is an admission, we’re winning.
Spawned by alternative media, but more importantly, comment sections that give people a voice they never had. From blogs to Main stream news sites, the voices are getting louder. These voices are laying a foundation and just maybe, working. They are telling the Fed’s, we don’t trust you, we are prepared, so be careful what you do. Thinking back to Spring, Operation Jade Helm, a simple military exercise in the Southwest, one that caused quite an uproar, especially in Texas. The release of a map showing Texas and other areas as hostile put the alternative media and conspiracy theorists into a frenzy. That frenzy hit Town Hall meetings and even reached the news reports of the MSM. But it wasn’t the hysteria or all the hoopla that stood out in the end, it was the distrust of our Federal government that took center stage and made people notice. The movement is growing. We are watching. We are Oathkeepers, preppers, doom and gloomer’s, cops, firefighters, military members, veterans and folks from all walks of life. We are Americans.
Obama acknowledged this point recently in an interview for The New York Review of Books, an under the radar interview with little notice being given, but this is what he said:
“Whenever I hear people saying that our problems would be solved without government, I always want to tell them you need to go to some other countries where there really is no government.”
“Where the roads are never repaired, where nobody has facilitated electricity going everywhere even where it’s not economical.” Obama added.
“If, in fact, you think that government is the enemy. And that, too, is a running strain in our democracy. That’s sort of in our DNA. We’re suspicious of government as a tool of oppression. And that skepticism is healthy, but it can also be paralyzing when we’re trying to do big things together.” Obama stated.
So there it is. A peaceful movement that holds the course, and the moral high ground, is getting its message out, loud and clear. Obama, Congress, we are watching and we don’t trust you. Be careful where you tread, because it won’t be on us!
