Revolultion

“Look at the shoes your filling
Look at the blood we’re spilling
Look at the world we’re killing
The way we’ve always done before
Look in the doubt we’ve wallowed
Look at the leaders we’ve followed
Look at the lies we’ve swallowed
And I don’t want to hear no more”

-Civil War by Guns-n-Roses

A friend of mine posted a status on his FB, that got me thinking of the world and how it stands today.

“The government is spying on us, wanting to take our guns, bailing out banks and other private companies, creating more debt, raising taxes, insurance premiums are going up, coverage is going down, big pharma companies are hiding cures, oil companies are stopping other sources of energy, people are being driven apart by the media, what else?!?!? How do we stop this? What do we have to do? There are lots of people talking about what’s wrong, but who’s doing anything? Where does one go to get involved? Time is against us. We need a radical change and soon!!! I hear everyone talking about being fed up, but what are you going to do about it?”

I’m a fan of history. In the far past, when things got really bad with its government people revolted. Hell even here America, in 1775 we flipped the middle finger to Great  Britain, and told them we weren’t gonna take it anymore. If you watch the world news 3rd world countries do it all the time. They don’t like some in charge they get up their buddies and guns and their bombs and they change things. So whats wrong with America? Why do we sit here grumbling amongst ourselves and take it?

The truth is we’re cowards. Now before you start getting pissed let me explain. I’m sure inside each and everyone of us is a fighter. If we were to find ourselves in danger or someone we loved and cared about. We would do what we needed to do to protect them and ourselves. Hell, there’s some among us that would even defend a complete stranger if need be. We all have a sense of survival buried in our genetic make-up. That’s we’re alive, That’s why when shit gets bad really bad we don’t bite down on the end of a barrel. We want to live and do what it takes to remain alive.

Going on the offense is totally counter to that. If you stand up and complain about our government and call people to arms, you’ll be labeled a terrorist. You’ll be ridiculed in the media. Hell, George Zimmerman stood his ground, and defended his life the best way he could and we all know how that turned out. Granted he was found not guilty. But turn your t.v. on and see if that really makes a difference. Lets face it, George Washington and the continental congress were terrorists. At least to the British. They were committing treason. But they weren’t afraid to stand up for what they thought was right.

So what will it take? What is needed to make change happen? Unfortunately those of us who are the true warriors, the ones who would take the fight to the government are dying overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan. For a revolution to take place, our pain and suffering has to be worse than the thought of dying. We have to get to the point of we’re not gonna take it anymore. Its gonna take a charismatic leader to come forth and gather the people to him. We’re sheep, but if you get enough of us going in the right direction, all will follow. A stampede of sheep is still a stampede.

RK out.
