When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British parliament was advised by an artful man [Sir William Keith], who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people. That it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them. But that they should not do it openly; but to weaken them and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia.

Thanks for posting this!

Was wondering why this type of opinion hasn't been expressed until now...... :whistle:

But one must wonder, why are those able to see these truths so unwilling to get their hands dirty?
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

There may be people trying  but you can bet your bippy the media either won't cover it or treat it as traitorous of Americans to assert their duty as outlined in the Declaration of Independence.

Be honest.   In today's economic reality, if you had a well-paying gig going in the established media, you'd be an idiot to step forward and speak against this gang.

It's a career 'ender'.   The latest is Diane Sawyer...coincidentally, only a week after she made Hillary very uncomfortable in the one-on-one interview.  Cheryl Atkinson.[sic?]

For only having a whiff of Conservatism on you...they'll sic the IRS on you.

So....everybody waits.   And waits.

Of course, businesses are waiting...sitting on piles of cash, trying to wait out this administration.

One way or another....everything's atrophied.
