The Bundy Ranch Confrontation and The Battles of Lexinton and Concord Were Responses To Tyranny

The Bundy Ranch Confrontation and The Battles of Lexinton and Concord Were Responses To Tyranny

Has the audacity of the Obama Administration and the sanctimonious stooges; Reid, Pelosi, and Biden pushed America to the Concord Bridge of the Twenty-First Century. Our Concord Bridge is no wooden bridge over the Concord River in Massachusetts, a bridge barely big enough for a small wagon to pass: today’s Concord Bridge is a huge overpass, high above the desert on Interstate 15, a four lane divided highway, cutting through several Western states and connecting Canada and Mexico.

Yes, we have come a long way, but once again we are confronting tyranny and an overbearing government more interested in the rich rewards of Crony Capitalism than in governing the country for the benefit and will of the American people.

To see the similarities of Concord Bridge and Bundy Ranch, we should recall those days of our nation’s conception.

th

It can be argued that the American revolution began with the battles of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775. Resentment had been festering for several years between the colonists and British authorities, especially in Massachusetts. In 1764, Great Britain used taxation as a means to raise revenue from the 13 colonies, these included the Sugar Act, Stamp Act, and Townshend Act. The Townshend Act was a series of import duties on glass, lead, paints, paper, and tea. These taxes were considered excessive, and the colonists questioned whether the King of England had the right to tax the colonists without their representation. Taxation was seen as repression, and the tempers of the colonists were seething with rage; although, many colonists were against using violence to assert themselves, many colonists of Massachusetts were preparing to meet the most powerful army in the world on the field of battle. A spark was all that was required to set the revolutionary machinery in motion.

March 5, 1770, was the day of the Boston Massacre. An unruly crowd of colonists were harassing a lone sentry, when a squad of British riflemen, led by Captain Thomas Preston, were dispatched to support the sentry. The British soldiers fired multiple volleys into the protesters, three were killed instantly and two died later of their wounds. Captain Preston and eight of his men were arrested for murder. John Adams and Josiah Quincy volunteered to represent the soldiers, who committed the Massacre. It was a move designed to establish the legitimacy of the colonial judicial system.

Captain Preston and six of his men were found innocent after the prosecution failed to present a convincing case; although, two of the men were found guilty of manslaughter, branded on their hands and released. The Boston Massacre became a focal point for the rallying of colonists to resist the British Crown.

British regulars had been billeted among the homes of the people of Boston, since 1768, this led to resentment and harassment of British Customs officials, who were trying to enforce the Townshend Acts. There were numerous confrontations between colonists and British regulars, but it was the Massacre on March 5, that enraged the colonists. The engraving of the massacre by Paul Revere circulated throughout the colonies and aroused the public to the point of protests and threats of violence.

The threat of violence was so intense, Lieutenant Governor Hutchinson withdrew the British troops to an island in Boston Harbor to insure a truce between the colonists and the British.

Although, many patriots were disgruntled with the verdicts, the withdrawal of the British troops and the repeal of all but one of the import duties lessened the anger of the colonists. However, Hutchison’s withdrawal of British troops, served to illustrate the strength of local organized resistance, after reducing the king’s imperial power to the point of impotence.

The Boston Tea Party took place in 1773 and the British Parliament declared Massachusetts in open rebellion; King George decided to increase the military presence, and in June 1774, he closed Boston Harbor, until the colonists paid for the tea that was dumped overboard.

At the break of dawn, on April 17, 1775, 700 British troops were dispatched from Boston to Concord to seize a suspected cache of weapons. At Lexington Green, they encountered 77 armed militia men. A British major ordered the militia to disarm.

“Throw down your arms, ye villains, ye rebels.”

The militia commander ordered his men to disperse, but a shot rang out from an unknown shooter. The British fired several volleys into the militia, killing eight and wounding nine.

The British suffered only one wounded and pressed on to concord to find the cache of weapons that had been moved earlier. Although most of the weapons were in another location, the British found some weapons and burned them. The fire was out of control for a short period and several hundred militiamen, who had gathered on the high ground just outside of Concord, thought the town was being torched. The militia rushed toward the North Bridge and confronted a small group of British regulars stationed to guard the bridge.

th

The British soldiers defending the bridge opened fire, but fell back when the militia returned fire with a strong volley. At this point, the American minute men stood up to the most powerful army in the world and fired the, “Shot fired ‘round the world” a phrase to be immortalized later by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

The British contingent searching for weapons in Concord stayed approximately four hours and prepared to march back to Boston, a distance of 18 miles, but because several riders had ridden through the countryside warning the militia, as soon as the British left Boston, over 2,000 minutemen descended on Concord and more kept arriving.

Initially, the militia was content to follow the British column, but fighting broke out and the militia began firing from behind stone walls, buildings, trees, and creek beds. Discipline broke down in the British ranks, they were trained to confront an enemy in an open field of battle in the tradition of the Napoleonic wars, being harassed by an enemy using rudimentary guerrilla tactics on a marching column was demoralizing. The British began abandoning weapons, clothing, and material along the road, and the march back to Boston deteriorated into a route.

The retreating British column was joined by a fresh brigade of British troops in Lexington that had been dispatched to support the beleaguered British column, but the harassing fire continued through the villages of Menotomy (Later named Arlington) and Cambridge.

The British tried to defend the column with flanking patrols and artillery, but these efforts were ineffective in stopping the harassing fire of the American militia.

th

A fresh contingent of militia arrived from Salem and Marblehead, and had an opportunity to block the retreat and possibly annihilate the column, but the new commander was reluctant to commit his men into this battle of confusion and chaos without a thorough understanding of the situation. Thus the opportunity for an overwhelming victory was lost. The British retreated to Charlestown Neck, where Naval support provided a safe haven.

The victory was not as overwhelming as commonly thought, the British suffered only 250 casualties to 90 for the militia. Under the circumstances, the American marksmanship should have extracted a far higher casualty ratio, but in fairness, the weapon of the day was a smooth bore musket, a weapon more effective in volley fire than being used as a sniper rifle. However, the American minute men proved to the world, but more importantly to themselves, that they could stand up to the most powerful army in the world.

News of the battle reached London on May 28, and by the following summer the war for independence was fully engaged.

The Bundy Ranch confrontation may not have had strategic results, but Cliven Bundy captured the attention and the spirit of the American attitude present during the events leading up to the American Revolution. The frustration of seeing the ideal American male portrayed as the complacent metrosexual Pajama Boy by our progressive administration and its state-directed media leaves the American psyche looking for a modern example of the American hero.

th

Thus Cliven Bundy walks slowly to center stage. He is a nihilist in a sense, and refuses to compromise with a government he considers to be corrupt. Its not that our president wears mom jeans or a helmet for a ride on a bike that he and the rest of America have lost faith in our government, it is because everyone knows the system is corrupt and rigged. Anyyone who can read and isn’t a Socialist ideologue knows Lois Lerner conspired with the highest levels of our government to repress the Republican Party by using the IRS as a political thug bureaucracy. People know why the Democrats and our Attorney Eric Holder refuse to consider making people show an ID to vote; we and politicians only pretend that there are legitimate reasons not to show an ID to perform this sacred act of citizenship. Everyone knows our president can never be expected to tell the truth, when there is a perceived political advantage to be gained, political advantages like claiming a video caused the storming of the consulate in Benghazi or telling America we can keep our plans and doctors to make us complacent about our new federal health care extortion and refusing to call Islamic Terror by its proper name. Americans chafe at the special considerations given illegal aliens during traffic stops and the fraudulent forms for employment and government welfare. No lucid person believes that bringing in cheap unskilled labor will lessen unremitting unemployment numbers and an economy drowning in a government promoted malaise. The Fast and Furious debacle would be enough to impeach our attorney general and perhaps the president if it wasn’t for a Democrat controlled Senate. The frustration of wars fought and of victories wasted by an ideologue’s pollyanna view of foreign policy and of our enemy. Our energy policy seems designed to transfer America’s Wealth to the Middle East, the Green Energy policies are a way to reward the Obama bundlers with hundreds of millions, and the Stimulus only served to stimulate the wealth of the biggest players on Wall Street and the bankers. Yes, America is disillusioned and the rage is seething just beneath the surface.

th

To gather a few cattle and force a family off its ranch, our president puts snipers with 50 calibers and spotters to keep the cross hairs on unarmed horsemen, women, and children. Is Obama’s regime overstepping its authority?

Has the morality of middle class rural America come into conflict with the greed and immorality of America’s elites?

obama-liar

Yes, Cliven Bundy is a symbol of an America that is fast disappearing from our horizon. Men who supported families with a few hundred cattle and avoided the silliness of the modern metrosexual nonsense are no longer considered important by our state-directed media. Harry Reid has plans to convert the desert into solar farms in partnership with the Chinese Communists and the expense of the American taxpayer; damn the rancher, think of the desert tortoise. A creature that has existed with Bundy cattle for well over a hundred and twenty years. If Bundy and his clan won’t submit, President Obama has already converted bureaucrats of the BLM into his own impressive looking bunch of pretend storm troopers.

th

The hell with real lawbreakers, Occupy Wall Street was on the president’s side, illegal aliens will learn to vote Democratic, Democrats are more than willing to vote for the dead, but unarmed Cliven Bundy will face storm troopers armed with M16 rifles. A rifle whose bullet tumbles when it hits bone and tears an arm to leg off and leaves a shredded stump. Yes, this is the way our Progressive president directs his personal storm troopers against those who stand up to his corruption.

Yet we all know the IRS, the EPA, the NLRB, the FBI, and the Justice Department are all attack dogs for the Democrat Party, being persecuted by our government has become a mark of distinction for the honest man.

Bundy was defeated in court, but he has won in the hearts of Americans and the court of public opinion. He has awakened those feelings that inspired those patriots to overwhelm the British at the North Bridge and stand up to tyranny.

    Skook- The pols are a major problem but it goes a lot deeper than that. When you have a situation where 81% of Americans believe that the POTUS lies and yet 44-45% of them approve of his presidency, there is something seriously wrong with a chunk of the populace as well.

    @another vet: There is a percentage of the population who is hard wired for the Socialist/Communist ideology and only cataclysmic forces like war will change their minds.

    During the great depression and the labor unrest across the country, Communism was seen as an alternative to the evil Capitalist who controlled the money and refused to share by hiring labor. Although, the actual reasons for unemployment were far more complicated, to the humble simple mind, such explanations seem logical. The Communist Party was particularly successful organizing among Black tenant farmers throughout the rural South, among the coal miners of Harlan County, Kentucky, the auto workers, mill workers, dock workers of San Francisco, and among the writers and poets of Oklahoma, including the hero of many Americans Louis Lamour.

    The Communist Party campaigned for racial equality during the days of racial segregation and won over intellectuals like W.E.B. Dubois and many influential members of the Black community; however they were often at odds with the NAACP over various issues.

    During the Spanish Civil War, the Communists were seen as a force against fascism, and Stalin opened the door to ally the Soviet Communist Party to the Liberals of the world; although, those efforts were compromised when Stalin signed a non-aggression pact with Hitler.

    After WWII, the Soviet threat was ominous in the US and Communists were persecuted, but over time, this may have had the unintended consequence of making martyrs of the actors and writers who bore the brunt of the activities, resulting in the very real communist influence we have in the arts today.

    It was the humanitarian act of being among the first to campaign for desegregation and of organizing for the worker against the “boss” during the dire times of labor unrest brought about by the depression that encouraged people to consider the communists as a viable alternative and allowed Communist agitators and community organizers like Saul Alinsky to become the folk hero and real hero of people like Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton. The elevation of these two public figures to national prominence has been the high water mark of the American communists.

    Unfortunately, the true believers in the communist doctrine will never give up the faith, despite the lies and corruption, because it is the alternative that seems to hold out the apron that will prevent those who accomplish so little, those who fail, those who fear the consequences of personal decisions and the possibility of failure, the lazy and indigent, the idealist student, the minority member who feels persecution, the person who has limited horizons, for all these groups and others, having the hands of communism to protect you from the realities of life is like having insurance against those same realities of life that are sometimes unpleasant and ugly.

    @Skook: So true. The history of Communism is not taught in schools for obvious reasons. To do so would destroy leftist revisionist history such as showing FDR as being a friend of Stalin as well as showing what a huge failure it was. Stalin viewed FDR as a friend and was distraught when Truman took the reigns and stood up to him. He made Stalin quite aware of who had had the nukes at the time and that he wasn’t afraid to use them. They said “Uncle Joe”, as FDR so fondly called him, was very incensed when “Give him hell Harry” flaunted that we had the bomb. It was the closet Communists/leftists that were in FDR’s administration that tried thwarting Truman’s tough stance against Stalin going so far as to say that communism was a great system and that it didn’t pose a threat to us. As you point out, we still have sympathizers today. There are still people who deny Lenin and Stalin killed as many people as they did putting them in the same category as the Holocaust deniers but you never hear that talked about. After all, Marxist thought is the foundation for The Party so we can’t have anyone associated with that political/economic train of thought implicated in atrocities. Marxism was for the little guy you know. Forget about its advocating violent worldwide revolution in order to achieve its goals or the millions of “little guys” that were sent to the Gulags to work and die or the millions of other little guys who perished because of collectivization and other communist brainstorms designed to bring the masses in line in order to achieve that communist utopia.

    As for the current plight in this country, we are pretty much at the point of no return. Unfortunately, it may take something catastrophic such as a total financial meltdown in order for the problems to be addressed and fixed (if that will even be possible) as opposed to continually kicking the can down the road.

    @another vet: A couple of points: It is hard to visualize Stalin thinking of FDR as a friend. He was so paranoid he had no friends at home. Hess(correction: Alger Hiss) was advising FDR before Yalta, and feeding him Stalin’s designs on Poland and Eastern Europe. It would seem that Stalin considered FDR more of a foolish stooge or Useful Idiot than a friend. In Whitaker Chambers’ book, he details the extent of Soviet penetration of the federal bureaucracy and it is phenomenal. Surely, Hess and the other moles considered FDR to be a useful idiot. It was Whitaker’s book that converted Reagan from a New Deal Democrat to a Conservative.

    I had only considered total war as being a strong enough incentive to shake the hard core Progressive followers from their ideological positions, the leaders are intent on revolution and are beyond redemption, but total financial meltdown may be an even stronger incentive. The crisis we are facing, that has been extended through the implementation of Socialist policy like the New Deal was extended unnecessarily through FDR’s Socialism. Without the never ending unemployment and scamming of the Disability program, we could be in the midst of financial meltdown at this time.

    Obama bought time with those political ploys to play crony capitalist with his banker/bundlers and green energy criminals. There will be a day of redemption; whether Americans have the moral integrity to weather the storm and remember our history and culture or fall victim to a flim flam artist like Obama and dance down the Yellow Brick road to Utopia will remain to be seen. As an observer, I hope to live long enough to judge the true nature of our Americans. As for myself, I will die a free man, whatever happens.

    @Skook: There is no doubt Stalin viewed FDR as a gullible stooge. He was said to have regarded Roosevelt as a powerful leader whom he could play a grand game with a good chance of success. Eric Brose wrote that after FDR’s death, “Replacing the genial patrician whom the Soviet dictator trusted and respected- to the extent that a Marxist, especially one as wary and suspicious as Stalin, can trust a bourgeois- was the rough-hewn Missourian and blunt anti-communist Harry S. Truman.” Some of Truman’s statements were almost as blunt as Patton’s with regards to the Bolsheviks. A far cry from calling Stalin “Uncle Joe”. Imagine that. A POTUS regarded by the left as being one of the greatest using a playful pet name for the biggest butcher in history. As for the moles, I believe at least one of FDR’s kids was in the “communism is not a threat” crowd as well.

    As for those social programs, fret not. It was reported on the local news this morning that my good old bluer than blue state of Illinois shelled out $12 million in Medicaid payments to people who don’t exist. Gov. Quinn vowed to get to the bottom of it and get back every cent. What a relief.

    As for Obama, if you ever read The Communist Manifesto, there are parallels just as there are with programs Lenin embarked on when he took power. Seizing control of private industry from its rightful owners and giving it to supporters (GM?) being the most obvious.

    @another vet: I am embarrassed to admit, I haven’t read the CM, but I have read may excerpts and a good deal of the writings of both Engels and Marx. They were both prolific men, but the world should get a glimpse into the squalor and decadence of their hero, many of them might have second thoughts concerning a man who would let his family starve and let his family live in filth and under his influence as a drunk before working for a wage under the capitalist system. Now, that is a man who stands for principle.

    The CM is the most well-read book in the world behind the bible; so, I will look for it in my favorite used bookstores; since, I prefer not to contribute to those horrifying statistics.

    I worked on the Chicago racetracks for 5 years in the 70’s and was amazed at how there was no attempt to hide the corruption and graft for bureaucrats and the police. The locals were proud and bragged of their “connections” whether they were paying or receiving their personal measure of largesse. Inadvertently, I became popular among some underworld types because I had no allegiances and I never talked about other people’s horses or business. It’s just a personality trait and nothing I did by design.

    It was depressing to see the corruption, and I wondered what the country would be like if every city operated by the same moral standard. Unfortunately, our entire federal government is being run with the Chicago machine as a model.

    My favorite memories of Chicago are of traveling through the country-side and working for the people South of Chicago, all the way to the Ohio; these were some of the best people I have ever met. They regarded Chicagoans like the uncle who gets arrested for public drunkenness or exposing himself; they would rather talk about something else, who could blame them? Of course their political voice was insignificant compared to the Chicago Machine, and that was really sad when you look at the size of the state and calculate the agricultural wealth of Illinois.

    Readers, Thundergod has been gracious to point out an error. In comment #8, the close advisor to FDR before and during the Yalta conference was Hiss, not Hess. Hess was a Nazi who landed a plane in Britain with a plan to end the war. There was one minor problem, he was nuts. I apologize for this error, but I make many mistakes in writing articles of several thousand words, I catch most of them in the proof reading process, but not all of them; since, I always find more when I reprint the articles on my own website at a later date.

    I’ve said in previous articles, I find discussions and arguments on ballistics to be as boring as biscuit recipes. Some of us have real experience with rifles and reloading and others rely on factory loads and articles written by “experts”. Most of those who have depended on weapons in life and death situations have their favorite propellants and bullets for specific rifles and conditions.

    I am familiar with the M1, M14, and M16; although, I have only owned one rifle in my life, an 8MM made in Germany, 1942. It was purchased for $60 and served well during my teenage years on the trapline and while working as a hunting guide. I eventually shot the barrel out in my mid-twenties. I mounted a stainless barrel and replaced the weathered Walnut stock with a fiberglass stock. I re-chambered the receiver at this time to accept the ’06 brass and made the infamous wildcat, the 8X06, a poor man’s magnum. Needless to say all my rounds are custom and I have my favorite rounds for Grizzly, moose, and elk. I don’t hunt deer, they are so small, it doesn’t seem worth the effort to me. It takes three horses to pack out a moose, but you will have enough meet to feed a family of five for a year. With an elk in the freezer as well, you can give away steak and roasts to less fortunate people.

    I am sure some of you have more experience with various rifles than me. I was a lowly Marine grunt during the 60’s, how much could I possibly know about rifles? However, there are specific blogs for those topics.

    @Skook: From page 74-75 here is what Marx advocated as what would be applicable in general to most countries in order to make inroads on property rights and the conditions of bourgeois production. Keep in mind he wrote this in 1848.

    1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
    2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
    3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
    4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
    5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
    6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.
    7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State, the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
    8. Equal liability of all to labour. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
    9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries: gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of the population over the country.
    10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.

    @another vet: I detailed each of these goals, but let my fingers wander over the keyboard and lost my comment. The results were rhetorical, it is easy to see the influence of Marx in the Obama Regime.

    The last one is the only one that I am in agreement with, however. I feel our education system is woefully inadequate and dominated by Leftist ideology. The indoctrination is amped up through the progression of grades, until the university level and if you aren’t a committed Leftist at this level you will be discriminated against if not ostracized by faculty and the loyal cadre of students.

    Education is concentrating on producing loyal ideologues, when the preparation for trades in industry and agriculture should be part of the curriculum. Internships and summer job programs in different industries could prepare students for the real possibility of holding a job, not voting a straight line D on ballots.

    The first nine read like the script for a nightmare we are living.

    @Skookum: There is no doubt our education system is inadequate but it was made that way through federal intervention. There is a strong correlation between education and income. Your idea of internships and summer jobs is a definite step in the right direction. Unfortunately indoctrination takes precedence. Having been both a younger and “older” student, I can speak from first hand experience. Surprisingly in many cases the students are actually more conservative than the professors. All but a few of the non-lefty professors I had were from a private college and all had jobs outside of academia. Imagine that. This is not surprising.

    Getting back to Marx (p. 71), he advocated abolishing the “bourgeois family” in order to stop the “exploitation” of children by their families. This was to be done by replacing home education with social education. Again, sound familiar?

    As for Concord, more stocking up of ammo by DHS.

    @ilovebeeswarzone: That is the direction we are going. Marx advocated gradual revolution with certain steps or stages that are to be gone through. Lenin and the Bolsheviks skipped some of those steps going straight to revolution which put them at odds with the Mensheviks who advocated sticking to all the steps.

    Yes, I have observed the Left’s relentless arrack on family values with sadness over the last decades.

    I related it to the weaken the family, weaken the culture, weaken the country progression. Once the culture is destroyed, patriotism is extinguished. Once the concept of patriotism is extinguished, the country can be redirected or overwhelmed. Either scenario is acceptable to the Leftist ideologue.

    I read the article about the shotgun shells earlier. I thought it was a reaction to the standoff at Bundy Ranch; if the stormtroopers would have opened up with those rifles, the blood bath would have been unconscionable to the average American. It might have meant the end of Obama’s presidency despite being a Black.

    It is far safer to open up from a distance with shotguns. There will still be lots of blood, but KIAs and the loss of limbs would be minimal. If there were pictures of horses, women, and children shot to rag dolls splashed on the internet, the White House would be under siege, now.

    “What childish innocence it is to present one’s own impatience as a theoretically convincing argument!” Frederick Engels, “Programme of the Blanquist Communards”

    I think of this quote when confronted with the AGW Liberals; perhaps, Lenin and the Bolsheviks should have read that speech.

    Personally, I think it is time to label the Progressives as Communists or Marxists and make sure the public is aware of the choices they are making and of how they are supporting the party that is responsible for many more deaths of their own people than the National Socialists of Germany.

    I wish I could be as optimistic as you as far as Obama’s presidency coming to an end had they opened up and killed a bunch of women and children. The MSM and the left would have applauded him and blamed the dead. His approval rating with his base would have soared and the American people in general would have shrugged it off as they have shown too many signs of being dumbed down and complacent.

    and the people are being watch in all their lives minutes,
    and if they are not doing what the leaders want they are hunted like animals, and punished by extortion
    of their posessions,
    AND FROM THE OTHER SIDE YOU MENTIONED A WORD , THAT IS COMPLACENCY FROM THEM
    WHICH COULD NOT BE ACCEPTED IN THOSE CONDITIONS, AS COMPLACENT BUT AS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR WHICH NEED INSTANT ACTIONS,, AS OPPOSE TO DELAY WHICH END UP IN MAKING THE
    OPOSITION GET FORGOTTEN OF THEIR BAD BEHAVIORS TOWARD THE PEOPLE, AND THEY GET AWAY WITH IT, BECAUSE THE COMPLACENCY OF THE OPOSITION ALLOWD IT BY NOT REACTING AT ONCE,
    SO ONE EXTREME GET AWAY WITH IT AND THE OTHER ARE TOO SLOW AND COMPLACENT

    @ilovebeeswarzone: We will now test the resolve of Texas and its attorney general and governor. The attorney general said he can beat the BLM in court.

    Obama wants to put tight restrictions for development on all federal lands. AV points out that it is integral to the Communist Manifesto for the Socialist Movement to secure all private lands and property. If this is Obama’s intent, he is testing the will of the American people to resist collectivization and the acquisition of farming and ranching land. Of course, he will not set his sights on rich Socialists and faux ranchers like Redford, poor ranchers and farmers will be targeted and persecuted.

    AV believes Americans lack the will to stand up to an imperial minority president, this latest incursion by the Obama storm troopers will indicate whether America is complacent enough to accept Chavez-style Socialism or resist the fanaticism of the Left.

    @another vet: The shotgun ammunition was a bad assumption by me, thank you for the correction; although, the reasoning may have been correct.

    It is criminal to have an MSM so invested in the Left, and yet, this president has the personality to evade retribution for his lies and corruption, even when they are brought out in the open. Yes, maybe I overestimate the intelligence and resolve of the average American. It’s obvious the American Socialist is dedicated to the natural progression of Marxist Socialism and the inevitable collapse of America as we know it.

    YES,
    THOSE FOLLOWING THE COMMUNIST MARXIST,
    would be tired at one time to find themselves so Homogenous as the other, ALL CLAPING, AS ONE, AT THE POLICE KILLING A BLACK WOMAN UNARMED, IN HER CAR WITH HER SON BABY IN THE BACK SEAT, WHAT AN HEROIC ACTION TO LAUD BY ALL,
    no distinction apparent, like when you hear them speak,
    it’s the same words from all the DEMOCRATS no distinction, they are following the leader’s tune ,
    why are they there if they are all one, why pay for them saying the same thing,
    they are paid to give opinion being negative or challenging,
    it’s a waste of money from the people and not dollars,
    BUT by trillions,
    ONE ALONE IS THE SAME AS HIS PARTY,
    IT WOULD PREVENT SO MUCH COST FROM THE PEOPLE IF HE JUST WRITE A BOOK ON HIS AGENDA,
    BUT NOW HIS AGENDA IS REPEATED BY ALL THE DEMOCRATS,
    A WASTE OF MONEY FOR THE PEOPLE, LIKE THE IRS, SAME AGENDA, ALL PICKING ON THOSE WITH DIFFERENT VIEWS,
    IT’S SO EXPANSIVE AND FRUSTRATING FOR THE PEOPLE,
    8 OUT OF TEN, ARE , NOT NEEDED,
    that is so big a change from the diverse opinions,
    coming and so much more logic and intelligent,
    from the CONSERVATIVES, MADE UP OF EACH IS AN EXCEPTIONAL HIM, EXCHANGING HIS THOUGHTS, WHICH WILL BE ASSESS BY ANOTHER HIM, AND ALL ARE GENUINE AIMING AT ONE GOAL WHICH IS THE BETTERNESS OF ALL THE AMERICANS, AS OPOSE TO THE DEMOCRAT LEADER’S NEGATIVENESS AIM AT THE DOWNFALL OF THE PEOPLE , MAY THEM BE POET OR PAUPER, RICH OR POOR,
