The Winds of Revolution!

people in my country complain that their government isn’t working, and very few stand up and take action because so many feel we can’t do anything. If more people took action the government would remember that this is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, now because of the in action of American citizens, we have a government that is threatening the very constitutional rights this country was founded on.

People are finally getting fed up with what a government that is increasingly becoming more ineffective. In the last three years we have seen just how useless and polarized this countries political system has become. Citizens of the Untied States, are finally starting to speak out and protest the action’s of their government.

It wasn’t so long ago that millions of people marched on Washington D.C. to demand equal rights, to demand an end to the failed Vietnam war, and most recently the occupy movement that started out as a great cause but then lost steam and became an ineffective demonstration.

The government of the United States of America, is in crisis, million’s of people are still unemployed, millions more homeless, and starving, along with the millions of people who have become dependent upon food stamps and medicaid, as prices of things continue to increase while wages stay at all time lows. In Nebraska to afford a two bedroom apartment you would have to work some 74 hours at $7.25 an hour, this is not a wage a person can live on. Our government is more concerned with what is going on in Egypt, than it is about the people it is suppose to serve.

Our founding fathers on July 4, 1776, declared their independence from tyranny, and oppression, in a document that would influence the world long after it was written .

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.”

A powder keg is about to ignite in this country, and it is going to bring about a change not seen since the founding of this country on that day back on July 4th, 1776. When a government ignores the will of it’s people, the time has come to replace that government, no longer will we be slaves to a government that is oppressing us more and more since the fatal events of September 11th, 2001.

To all my readers, I urge you to take up arms and to protest against your government! Protest against tyranny, and oppression! Protest for your right’s as a citizen of this country. It is our duty to retake this government, so that we may create a government, that is once again for the people. Let us take back our country, and let us be the one’s who guide it into the 21st century!!!!!

    I agree with everything you say exceot for taking up arms. That is a last resort, if it becomes necessary. If it does, I know how to use them.

  2. Nicely written, Chris, but with the usual furor of a young man who is still a bit naive. When you speak of revolution, we’re literally heading toward one, I’m afraid. In this case you need to think in more panoptic terms. Of course we’re primarily wanting to concentrate on the LGBT community and we have plenty of reasons to start a revolution ourselves (although as of late, one might think a few less reasons with everyone sucking on their marriage rights pacifier), but the religious right’s hatred of us, their fear of losing their gun rights, the turmoil many feel about being spied on by the government, the faked reports we’re being fed about the recovery “getting better” when the only people it’s actually getting better for is rich people. I’ve lived for more than 57 years and I’ve never seen things worse in this nation. Yes, revolution is coming and our mutual friend (who shall remain nameless) wholeheartedly agrees that it will probably happen in the next few years.

      To all of these comment’s yes, I am a bit naive, on some political issues, and that I have more to learn. But as a young man who will one day help shape the future of hopefully not only this country, but of the world, I must look at just more than LGBTQ issues. While I agree I have plenty to work on in the area of LGBTQ, I focus on many issues. When I say take up arm’s that all depends upon how you take it. Taking up arms doesn’t specifically mean grab a gun start shooting up things, to arm’s can referrer to taking a stand and protesting your government. The idea of what this country isn’t dead, even if it’s practices may be slowly corroding away.

      1. I agree, Chris. The other day I read a very good article in the New York Times about Obama taking a tour of the island where Mandela was imprisoned for more than 35 years and it inspired me to think, “What would happen if they did the same thing to the LGBT community? How many people would actually take a stand and go to prison over LGBT rights?” So I posted it on Facebook. Care to take a guess as to how many people said they would go to jail over LGBT rights? That’s right! ZERO! ZIP! NADA! Our own community, not unlike the days when people got arrested for being in a gay bar and activists tried to get them out of the bars to march and they refused, will not take a stand and be brave. I know I would go to prison for our movement and you would but for the principles of our freedom and rights but is it worth it to do this for people who don’t really give a shit?
