So you wanna play in the streets, do ya?

Best make it count for something, then.

We’ve told people, multiple times, not to play in the street. But they were soooooo much smarter than we were. Right up until the ambush was sprung, and the whole idea blew up in their faces.

And then they got played again, at the Capitol last January, just to drive the point well home.

If you’re not going out to play with the express intention of racking up a body count in the mid four figures, you shouldn’t be going out to play in the streets at all.

I’d say that’s about where we’re at, yeah. We didn’t come voluntarily, perhaps, and aren’t in the least happy about having been dragged to this place. Which objections, plus more besides, have been rendered entirely moot by current circumstances. The one and only thing that matters at this point is seeing to it, for sure and certain, that the ones who brought us here pay for their miscalculation, in fullest measure, so that they don’t ever make the same mistake again.

Nothing you seek to win is up for grabs there, and like this verdict, when the dust settles, you’ll be eating a 20-foot-long party sub sh*t sandwich. Every last bite of it.

If you couldn’t figure out better uses for $26M, you’re definitely not bright enough for what’s coming. There’s a million things you should be doing, and not one single one of them is “go to a protest march”. Which same haven’t worked once, since ever.

In a better, non-dysfunctional country protest marches and such might be useful—a country, say, in which the consent of the governed mattered a whit; in which the nation’s elected “leaders” cared one iota about the opinions and desires of the citizenry; a country whose national elections were anything more than pure theater; a country in which the words “public servant” hadn’t become bitter satire, an obscenity.

Alas, this is NOT that country.

The key bit, the crucial bit: Nothing you seek to win is up for grabs there. In the properly-governed Constitutional republic envisioned by our Founders, all the things a free citizen might “seek” from his central government would have remained attainable via the institutions and processes established for the purpose: honest elections; petition for redress of grievances by lobbying or direct contact with one’s Congressional representative(s); lawsuit; even public protest when/if it came down to that. The rise of our present-day ProPol Ruling Class would never have been allowed to happen, nor would men of integrity, duly sworn to promote and preserve the interests of those who voted them into office, have dared to consider the rights and liberties of their constituents to be “up for grabs,” in ugly contrast to the vile reprobates who molest and abuse us today.

Again, this is NOT that country. Three of the famous Four Boxes have failed utterly and are now of no further use to us, leaving just the one to work with—the last desperate resort of men who would live in the ennobling glow provided by the Lamp of Liberty rather than under Tyranny’s grim, suffocating shadow. Which brings us all right back ’round to those “million things we should be doing” again, now don’t it?

Notable Quotes

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.” - John Adams

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved." - Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." — Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil." - Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork." - David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." - Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine." - Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” - Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it." - NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in." - Bill Whittle
