Illinois Rep Mike Bost Screams in Outrage on House floor! (The tyranny is coming unglued)
When Rome degenerated from a free republic into a tyranny the statesmen, who had previously served the people, were intimidated to be silent. Caesar left the Senate functioning to preserve the illusion of a government of laws. The difference was that the only function of the Senator was to do exactly as Caesar said to do.
This history is being repeated in America. But not every legislator lacks the courage to speak out. We are seeing numerous examples of resistance from within the ranks of those who are expected to be submissive puppets. We saw Supreme Court Judges holding back tears while Obama hyped the H.R. 5175 DISCLOSE Act.
Congressman Joe Wilson yelled 'You Lie' when Obama claimed that his health care would not be for illegal aliens.
Why are not all one of them yelling "You lie"?
Without the internet we would never hear about these daring challenges that are being made. Some politicians are as fed up as we are, and are saying what the rest of of are saying.
Be proud to restore liberty.
GOOGLE THIS "What would Patrick Henry say today?"
Read what Patrick Henry said on March 23, 1775
Then read this again, and change a few words:
Change "British ministry" to "federal government".
Change "kings" to "tyrants".
Change "Great Britain" to "Washington".
Change "ministry and Parliament" to "federal government".
Change "throne" to "federal government".
Change "British guard" to "federal officer".
Change "Boston" to "Waco and Ruby Ridge".
Rep. Mike Bost made his point emphatically. The second viewing should be devoted to those around him, most of whom look like total wimps: some even smirking. Why were not every one of them yelling? Did they not all take the same OATH TO SUPPORT THE CONSTITUTION? Please investigate OATHKEEPERS. We organize police and military and teach adherance to the oath of office: To support and defend the constitution. If police and military will refuse to obey illegal orders, then any dictator will fail.
Yes, we must forgive him for one error: This is a REPUBLIC, not a democracy. Democracy is not a synonym for freedom.
Democracy is rule by majority. In a Democracy minorities have no rights. Democracy is 2 wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.
Republic is rule by morality with rights of minorities protected.
Rule by majority is the opposite of rule by morality unless you are in Heaven.
Thomas Jefferson said:
"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance."
John Perna said:
"The battle for freedom is never won & never lost.
The battle for freedom always continues.
It is never too late & never soon enough to defend freedom.
No matter how enslaved we are we always have hope.
No matter how free we are, we are never safe.
NOTHING EVER LIMITS GOVERNMENT EXCEPT THE PEOPLE.
Any generation that fails to defend freedom will lose it.
The next generation must shed blood to regain it"
Democracy is 5000 wolves & 4000 sheep voting on to have for dinner.
A Republic is 5000 wolves & 4000 sheep that elect 50 wolves & 40 sheep who to decide to have for dinner.
A Constitutional Republic is 5000 wolves and 4000 sheep who elect 50 wolves & 40 sheep who then decide what's for dinner, BUT THE CONSTITUTION SAYS THAT YOU CANNOT EAT SHEEP.
Without the eternal vigilance of the people The Supreme Court, by a vote of 5 wolves to 4 sheep, declares that mutton is not sheep.
