A Revolutionary Train of Thought

from a Marine:

This is long.. but every word is from the heart.

I've spent the last 25 years of my life waiting for things to change for the better. They have not. In fact, things have only become worse. You all know exactly where I'm coming from.

Year by year, the American people are picked apart, lied to, robbed, enslaved and have had their Constitutional rights systematically stolen.

I'm a U.S. Marine. I've been saying for over two decades that a revolution is coming - and I didn't mean the one we have here. I mean a bloody one. A revolution where my fellow Americans finally reach the melting point, when former and currently active military join together to take the country back by force. Where the common citizen is finally asked, "Will you take up arms to regain your rights?".

Now I see differently. In the past months I have been given an entirely different outlook on the future. I see my fellow citizens, people with or without military backgrounds or affiliations to compel them to do so, joining the ranks of this freedom revolution.

As a person with a military background, if I look at this logistically there is no way to beat it. Armies need commanders, soldiers need orders, troops need training and supplies. But more importantly, in a time of conflict, those soldiers need a target to hit.

This revolution has to be the worst fear of anyone who would think to oppose it. It has no 'leaders'. It has no tactical disadvantages to exploit. You cant point a gun at an idea. You can"t put crosshairs on principles. This revolution can continue gaining momentum and influence, members and followers, attention and coverage without a 'voice' to do it with.

I'm reminded of the masked faces in 'V', standing together outside parliment (ok, it's a movie, but it fits here). None of those people spoke a single word. They had no faces. They had no speaches. They had no 'disobedient nature' about them at all. Yet anyone who watched that movie knew exactly what they were saying - and could almost feel the influence of that group in the air.

Yes, that was fictional, but the 'feeling' provided by that scene is the same thing I get when I work toward the same goals that all of you are working toward - freedom and liberty the way it SHOULD be.

You cannot put a gag on the truth. You can try, and if those attempting to spread that truth are few, you may succeed. But when you've got millions already, and numbers growing by the tens of thousands on a continual basis, it is no longer possible.

An author once wrote; "There is no such thing as art, because art is mankind's attempt at holding a mirror up to either nature or imagination - and there isn't a mirror big enough to do that". In that same context - there is no 'gag' big enough.

The mirror, in our case, is the shroud of doubt that the powers that be, mainstream media and naysayers would try to cover us with. It is the veil of propoganda and disgregard that is draped across the televisions, newspapers, magazines and airwaves of the world, used to keep the population from hearing the message.

But the message is quickly becoming to vast, too loud, too obvious and too thought provoking for these would-be oppressors to contain any longer. The power of the truth, the power of right, and the power of true patriotism are far greater than any amount of money, bandwidth, propoganda or wool pulled over the eyes of those who could see.

This revolution has gone from being considered a 'side show of weirdos', to an 'internet following', to a 'group of citizens', to a 'nationwide freedom revolution' in a shorter time than I think even those who stand in opposition to it ever dreamed. It has demonstrated the will, ambition, determination, spirit, and unwaivering loyalty that many politicians and corporations could only dream of obtaining from those who would 'follow' them.
