In this great nation you are free to do & say as your please. If you want to scream “revolution!” on the street corner, you can. You will be held legally responsible for any damage which occurs as a result.
If you want to say that we should overthrow the government & return the nation to it’s founding principles, you can do so. If your words prompt others to act in furtherance of an illegal attempt to overthrow the government, I can assure you that Uncle Sam will hold you accountable.
I have to say that while I will defend my rights by any means necessary, I find it incredibly DISTURBING that so many people are not only willing, but eager to go to war with their countrymen.
I can’t tell if all the bluster is caused by stupidity, risk-free internet bravado, or some dangerous combination of the two. People seem to be amping each other up for war. What the hell? We’re not to that point yet, people.
It is dangerous and stupid to go to war with our government. It delivers the people right into the tyrant’s hands if done precipitously. We need to dial back the rhetoric before some idiot sets off a half-assed insurrection and gets us all crushed underfoot.Share
