There is an excellent story over to David Bellavia’s blog here: It is entitled
“Nonymous: No Taxation Without Representation”
Go and read it. My response is listed below, copied from the comments I left there.
You cannot call for a response such as “No Taxation Without Representation!” unless it is backed by the threat of force. It will be ignored, as have all of our citizen’s pleas to this Magisterial Presidency and it’s band of Congressional enablers and sycophants.
Calling for a repeal of the representatives will do no good because it will be tied up in the legislatures and courts for years, and by then it will be too late.
This Presidency, and this Congress MUST understand that though the people are loath to take up arms against them, and would, in almost every case eschew the use of arms to decide the issue, that these same citizens will, nonetheless, act in such manner as the situation may require to have their grievances honestly and completely redressed, and the Constitution and laws be restored to their rightful place.
Having seen the actions of the administration for the past year, and having suffered under similar imperial actions during the Carter, and Clinton years, the citizenry cannot be blamed for, at the very least, the consideration of taking matters into their own hands to restore the government to it’s proper, minimalist place in our nation, and to repeal those laws and institutions which, in all fairness and open consideration, have been emplaced without consideration of the Constitution.
My duty, as that of every citizen, is to the defense of our Constitution first, for without it, we are nothing. I do not now seek to defend that great document with force of arms, but if needs be, I will, and I expect that every other free man and woman will, and that our government must needs be placed upon notice that they tread on to dangerous grounds with the laws and institutions and agenda with which they seek to further shackle the citizenry.
I do not call for armed revolt, but I will not place it out of consideration should the time come when it is forced upon us by the actions of those who have forgotten their own oath.
I will live or die as a citizen and a free man, and NOT as a subject.
