FILE - In this Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013, file photo, the dome of the Capitol is reflected in a skylight of the Capitol Visitor's Center in Washington.(AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)


Every Fourth of July we have a family dinner and take turns reading sections of the Declaration of Independence. When my kids were young they were thoroughly bored. When they were teenagers they rushed through the reading so they could ditch the family and see their friends, who weren’t subjected to such July 4th indignities. But my children are grown now, and this year brought their friends to our family dinner.

We handed out slices of American Flag cake along with copies of the Declaration and commenced reading, going around the table. My children were apprehensive their friends would think their parents were too corny, and their friends looked on politely, but unenthusiastically. The first few lines were familiar to everyone: “When in the Course of human events”…and…. "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..."

We’re seeing the stirrings of a movement against Washington’s governing elite, an increasingly angry reaction to their abuse of power.

Read beyond those first two paragraphs, though, and you get the long list of grievances the Colonials had against the King. Some of our readers this year were in the military, two were Special Forces guys, just back from some of the fiercest fighting in Afghanistan. The rest were recent college graduates, struggling to find jobs, get apartments they could afford, and payoff college loans.

This year our reading of the Declaration clicked.

As we went around the table, each person reading a few sentences of the Declaration, the momentum picked up. People started reading with enthusiasm, then gusto, and mounting passion as they got further down the list of grievances. They started banging the table as the abuses mounted, and finished by chanting all together the repeated phrase,“Free and Independent States”.

It dawned on us that what happened in America in the 1770’s is like what’s happening all across the country today. We’re seeing the stirrings of a movement against Washington’s governing elite, an increasingly angry reaction to their abuse of power.

For the first time in all the years of reading the Declaration, I felt how angry the Colonials were. It wasn’t just about paying taxes, or being able to vote for members of Parliament. It was about a far-away government dictating to people who lived very different lives. It was about a big government that took from the people but gave very little in return. It was about an arrogant elite, deaf to the repeated petitions of the people. It was about abuse of power.

Think of what it must have been like for our forbearers. They had been carving out a life in the wilderness for over a hundred years, through their own determination, hard work and self-reliance.

They had been self governing not by design, but by circumstance, since the King and his Parliament were an Ocean away. But when the King started handing down new laws and taxes and increasing his interference in areas of life the Colonials had been accustomed to think of as their domain, they petitioned for redress. The King refused, instead sending a mercenary army to keep order in the Colonies. The Colonials fought back, hoping it would get the King to address their grievances and give them the rights of freeborn Englishmen. It didn’t work.

The Colonials had been pushed to the limit and realized the only option left to them was a clean break with the motherland. They sent delegates to Philadelphia to write a document listing their grievances with the King, laying out the case for why they had no choice but to demand independence. They insisted they had rights that no King could deny, because those rights came directly from the Creator. They signed, knowing it they were risking their lives and treasure. Here are some of their complaints, in language which sounds archaic, but with arguments which seem snatched from today’s headlines.

“He has refused his Assent to Laws… He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing Importance. He has…exposed to all the Dangers of Invasion from without, and Convulsions within. He has obstructed the Administration of Justice…. He has erected a Multitude of new Offices… He has affected to…giving his Assent to Acts of pretended Legislation.”

There is a new dissatisfaction blowing across the country. As it was in the 1770s, the movement is not coming from the seat of power or among those who make the laws. It’s coming from the "little people," who live outside the Beltway.

You see it in opinion poll after opinion poll. The majority of people think their children’s lives will not be as good as theirs. Nearly half of all Americans are no longer proud of their country. Politicians have become a despised breed.

If this trend continues, it’s hard to see how the country can continue to carry on as usual, trading off power between one Washington elite and the other.

Why? Because the indictment is not against one party or even one president, it’s a loss of faith in the entire system, and it’s been building for a while.

The current incumbent has accelerated that sense of alienation, with an administration that enforces only the laws it likes, ignoring the rest. But both Republicans and Democrats have been in on the game; they’re so busy fighting with each other over the spoils of office, that they ignore the rest of us except at election time when they want our votes.

We are now governed by elites, some the second and third generation of elites, who have decided the rest of us aren’t smart enough to govern ourselves. They believe modern society has become so complicated that government needs to be in every nook and cranny of it, making the decisions for us, for our own good. They know what’s best for us.

This growing dissatisfaction hasn’t reached a boiling point, but it shows no signs of simmering down. The signs are everywhere.

It’s the fact that a majority of Americans say they’re independents, and no longer no longer identify either political party.

It’s the libertarians who want to reclaim decision making for themselves. It’s the small government folks who see government as a great Leviathan gobbling up more and more of their treasure and freedoms.

It’s the deficit hawks who worry we are enslaving our children and grandchildren to pay off this generation's debt.

It’s a national movement that’s growing and the reason it’s such a threat to the governing elite, is that it’s increasingly young people who are attracted to it.

And it’s now about any one issue. It’s about the breakdown of government. It’s about Washington’s failure to protect our borders, about Washington’s out of control spending, about Washington’s corruption and collusion with special interests. It’s about arrogant all-powerful government officials who answer to no one, and act outraged when anyone dares question them. It’s about a Washington elite that has turned the Declaration of Independence on its head and behaves as if the only rights Americans have are the ones they bestow on us. It’s about a pervasive attitude that America works to keep Washington elites in power, instead of Washington working for us.

One of the most cogent sections of the Declaration is the recognition that it takes a lot for people to rebel and throw off tyrants. The founders human nature, “that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are Sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed.”

No one knows where this 21st century, nascent political movement will go. Maybe it fizzles out because abuses of power are terrible but tolerable. Maybe Washington wises up and reverses direction. But maybe the Leviathan just gets too big to ignore and the people rise up, and vote them out of office, en masse.

Americans are slow to anger, but once they do get angry, they are impossible to stop. Just ask King George III.

There are a LOT of very very angry distrustful and mighty pissed off Americans.

The communism suppression emanating from DC has really inflamed many. Obummer's abuse of power comes on top of Bush's Jewish neo-con 8 year reign of abusing the UN and US Congress as it relished in its status of the world's only superpower and wreaked havoc on the Middle East to benefit Israel.

In 2014, Civil War was a distinct possibility when the ARMED Federal Department of Lands (?) threatened to kill protesters protesting against a COW FARMER being kicked off Federal land his family had been grazing on FOR GENERATIONS.

NOW there is the seemingly Washington orchestrated REFUGEE CRISIS to flood S/W States with illegal immigrants. Fed agencies are AGAIN opposing the view of the people as they implement their communist agendas.

The US will hit breaking point and it will be very very bloody and ugly.

You have to laugh when you read peoples biogs like that about people who are supposed to be intelligent, patriotic members of a system that's supposed to be acting for the benefit of the nation and well being of the people, while being complicit in the process of tearing their countries apart.

The question that springs to mind is why is she suddenly making this rallying cry? Why isn't she blowing the whistle on all the dodgy dealings she has witnessed and quite likely taken part in? Where was her outrage when she was involved in the policy making process? Was she too stupid to figure out what those various terms of office were conspiring to implement though fair means or foul?

Her previous employers have been preparing for a revolution for fifty odd years and using the peoples money to equip themselves to fight against them. I would say she is still batting for the same team and this talk is supposed to serve the agenda along with the current ramping up of the immigration issue.

It's also possible that all this macho posturing is aimed to assist Hideously Clinton's run for presidency as people may turn to what they perceive to be a more feminine touch. :O When she is actually one of the most vehemently aggressive and corrupt individuals in American politics today. If the American people continue to buy into the two party system their slave masters have created for them the situation can only go from bad to worse. These old systems of control need to be put to rest, and we all need to start electing independent representatives, who don't share the traditional educational, employment and family backgrounds that most politicians seem to have in common.

The Savage Nation- Michael Savage- July 10, 2014 …:


At around the 1 hour mark Michael Savage discusses what's going on in the US at present.

If you don't know who Savage is, he's an ashkenazi by background but .... has clearly rejected it. He'd be labeled a self hating Jew no doubt.

From wiki .... Savage has characterized his views as conservative nationalism,[8] while critics have characterized them as "fostering extremism or hatred."[9] He opposes illegal immigration to the United States, supports the English-only movement and argues that liberalism and progressivism are degrading American culture.

He's been banned from entering the UK because of his views that "may incite hatred". lolol

He's anti-immigration and believes in preserving the English speaking culture where it exists.

I to believe people are fed up and anger is rising across America? But I also believe, unfortunately the avenues to vent this anger are going to be mostly controlled opposition? There will be traps laid for patriots and revolutionaries? This is at least part of the reason for the FEMA prison camps?

I've discussed FEMA camps with American friends at length. I've hence come to see them as Soviet style gulags for dissenters. Jewish psycho babble would be adopted to come up with new terms to justify imprisonment of dissenters on American soil ... just as "enemy combatants" was concocted to enable people - and not all were even Muslims - to be imprisoned indefinitely at Guantanamo Bay.

Yep! No doubt the FEMA camps will be used to accommodate those imprisoned under our new NDAA legislation?

The facilities seem to be rather excessive to house just the 1% that require such fitting accommodation. :ponda:

It's already happening , not an outright ban , but incrementally, their stopping vets having them if they were on medication in the military (90%) , and other people for spurious reasons. They're picking people off quietly, one by one , seeing what they can get away with.
This is where their fluoridation pays off for them , it stops people getting angry.

And there are more guns now in Australia than prior to the buy back. Obama might prosetylise over Australia's "wondrous arms buy back". But how ever many were handed in and destroyed have more than been replaced since "the lone white nutter" shot a semi-automatic weapon with the precision of a military marksmen and killed 35 or so in the space of a couple of hours.
