Shame, Shame, Shame
Yes Shame on the police indeed. But Shame on the crowd for allowing a fool to assault peaceful people with chemical weapons (mace) and just stand by and do nothing. Since justice is blind it does not see uniforms it does not see badges but it knows and I know what injustice is .
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
So much of the history of the struggle between good and evil can be explained by Edmund Burke's observation. Time and again those who profess to be good seem to clearly outnumber those who are evil, yet those who are evil seem to prevail far too often. Seldom is it the numbers that determine the outcome, but whether those who claim to be good men are willing to stand up and fight for what they know to be right. There are numerous examples of this sad and awful scenario being played out over and over again in history.
To proclaim that it is never okay to forcibly resist law enforcement is to inadvertently demonstrate why so much of human history has been plagued by tyranny and oppression.
Throughout history most mass evil has not been done in spite of law enforcement but done in the name of law enforcement.

As uncivilized as violent self defense may sound the alternative is to allow government to do absolutely anything it wants to do to you and you have to allow it
In the words of Alexander Hamilton himself
"If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense...."
Make no mistake that self defense is measured, controlled focused and just not some anarchistic whim of unfocused rage that injurs the innocent and uninvolved
Do you know what history teaches us about people that don't stand up and defend themselves from tyranny?...they end up in gas chambers.
We may not have gotten that far yet but...
The injustice of the state is at the root of why people are taking to the streets in protest by both the tea party and occupy movements.
The Banks and Corporations are merely an opportunistic infection in a greater wound. And I am sad to say a self inflicted wound.
The Democratic Party promises economic security and more benefits for the poor and working class – in return for more taxes, more regulations, self serving foreign policy and forfeiting our personal and local community independence for what they perceive is best for our collective society . However, economic security is actually only selectively doled out to those who will benefit that individual politician's situation either in re-election or to increase his or her personal wealth.
The Republicans on the other hand promise to protect us from the Democrats and all the other boogie men of the world then turn around and grant subsidies for the super rich and build prisons for the poor and invade weaker countries for their valuable assets in the same self serving fashion.
The resulting wealth gap has always led to more demand for greater moderate socialism and redistribution of wealth gained by favors paid by both sides of the isle. The big kicker is, greater socialism entails that government, you know the same government that allowed all those special favors, be given more control in order to fulfill it's empty promises of social justice in an ever increasing spiral of government power and control.
Lets Ask the native Americans if the us government can be relied on to makes good on it's promises.
Have you all noticed that the laws, acts, and regulations being passed as well as the many wars or so called kinetic actions by both parties have no actual benefit to or wanted by the average person on the street. There only justification is that it is all being done for your own good. Continual wars, militarization of police, unwarranted searches, checkpoints and surveillance. Forced vaccinations, limiting healthcare, access to our saved retirement funds they now call entitlements, and our god given right to choose healthy food and vitamin over chemically altered and genetically modified crap. If that wasn't bad enough our young are being taught revisionist history and to always listen to authority in our government controlled schools. American education consists of material regurgitation instead of critical thinking. It is not in the governments best interest to produce children that question authority and have a keen eye that rejects hypocrisy.
Such independence is not in the best interest of the state. Substandard education that does not serve them in adult life except to create good obedient unquestioning workers is the standard.
Year by year we lose freedom and independence to the one-two punch of government and corporate bureaucracy. Politicians promise change, but actually offer the same two stale options: moderate socialism or wage serfdom.
Both parties have failed at protecting America's sovereignty. They have signed unwanted world treaties with global entities without the consent of it's people. They have failed to protect us economically by abrogating their constitutional responsibilities and allowing parasitic private banks to debase our currency, creating debt based currency and allow compounding interest to be the norm. With the passage of legislation, the two parties have allowed our manufacturing and productive base to leave our shores to better their corporate cronys at the expense of the economic health of it's people. They have knowingly allowed special interest to write legislation that either steals from the American pocket and or protects corporate monopolies against the best interest of the American people through elimination of future competition.
Just like the word democracy is misunderstood to mean freedom, all the while it's true nature is tyranny of the minority by a majority, a similar situation exists with the word Capitalism.
Make no mistake Capitalism is absolutely not a free market economic system. Capitalism is defined as a system of economics where those who privately own the means of production use economic and political influence to gain advantage over others. There is no other true definition. And there is no other system at play in the United states at this moment in time. Those that blindly defend Capitalism defend the use of political and financial advantage and influence over natural market forces to infringe upon the rights of everyone else to play the game equally.
Many who call for regulation rarely if at all get the regulation that is called for because those already playing the game control the rule making mechanism.
Today there is no equal justice in our current system. Insiders and cronys that fail are bailed out and their losses are legally given to you and I against our will. If your an insider, bad decisions have no legal consequence. There are individuals committing high crimes against the American people. Theft, murder and treason yet there are no consequences and there is no justice. Remember, as Thomas Jefferson once said, If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.
In a free society, the government's legitimacy and moral right to use it's power is only justified and legal when derived from the consent of it's people. I see no such consent. It is the duty of every free American to resist by all means necessary anyone and anything that seeks to destroy the precious jewel that is freedom.
To fight for freedom is wrought with risks of harm to life and limb. Thousands of young men and women sign up every year to lay down their lives for for what they believe will defend freedom. So I know you are out there my brothers and sisters.
It is of course everyone's right to interpret for themselves what freedom means means to him or her and a personal decision as to what actions he or she should take. But let me be clear and blunt. Freedom and Liberty is dying in America and America needs your help.
I will simply leave you with the historical words of our founding fathers in an attempt to allow you to glimpse America through their eyes, as they saw it and allow you to decide what actions our hearts should take.
Make no mistake there has been no major change to the human heart and mind since 1776.
From Thomas Jefferson:
What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
From George Washington:
A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.
And of course from Patrick Henry
“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”
