Revolution!
By Larry Klayman

I've been writing about it for over a year. Many of you may have thought that I was just trying to make a point and not serious about it. But, indeed I was always serious, as you should be too — as our Founding Fathers John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and company were serious in the years leading up to the Declaration of Independence in 1776. We no longer have a free nation! We no longer have a functional republic! What choice is there when the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government fail and refuse to take into account the profound grievances of the "We the People" and instead walk off to feather their own corrupt establishment nest?

The Founding Fathers and the colonies declared independence and waged a revolutionary war for a lot less than the current tyranny we face. First, the colonies were very prosperous but also subject to being heavily taxed — that is, financially raped by King George III — without representation in the British Parliament. They were hardly bankrupt as the nation is today. With the disgusting and revolting (no pun intended) actions on display just in the last days in Congress and the executive branch with regard to the so-called fiscal cliff legislation — which will increase onerous taxes and in fact increase the country's bankruptcy by $4 trillion in debt over the next 10 years — it is clear that King George III was an amateur tyrant when compared with the nation's current, self-serving and greedy establishment hacks in both major political parties.

Second, John Adams (who as a trial lawyer risked his career to successfully defend British soldiers who had been provoked to fire on and kill colonial protesters on Boston Common) and his fellow Founding Fathers were outraged that even after the American legal system had functioned properly and acquitted the British soldiers, King George ordered that all criminal defendants accused of felonies be subsequently tried in British courts in London. The king removed the legal right of the colonies to adjudicate serious crimes committed on American soil. Today, and as just one example among an ever-expanding array of disgraceful illegal acts by our judges on a daily basis, the refusal of courts to hear eligibility challenges concerning the status of Barack Hussein Obama as a "natural born citizen" reinforces the reality that we no longer have a functional legal system. Notwithstanding that the result is a black-Muslim, anti-white, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian "Manchurian candidate" fraudster socialist tyrant in the Oval Office — bent on tearing down and destroying the pillars of our formerly capitalist society — "We the People" have been left defenseless, legally, by the judges who have taken an oath to obey the U.S. Constitution, the law and mete out justice.

Third, the colonies objected to having King George impose what was in effect a trade embargo; the despot ruler ordering that the colonies could not engage in tea and other forms if trade with other countries, but instead had to primarily buy only British products.

Fourth, when the Founding Fathers and colonies sought to reason with the king to have him remove this bondage and heavy taxation without representation, the Crown reacted by sending its troops to seize and destroy American arms and weapons, to try to prevent the colonies from rising up in rebellion. The absolute right to bear arms was enshrined into the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as a result. Today, with the overreaction to the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and the convenient and opportunistic push by leftists led by Obama to begin the process of banning guns and seizing our weapons of self-defense against not just the so-called government but other criminals among us — we can see more than the similarities of our plight in 1776.

In short, our situation — whereby the nation has been intentionally bankrupted by the Democratic and Republican establishment and sold out to the equivalent of biblical money changers in the modern form of special interests who line the pockets of our government representatives with campaign contributions and other forms of cash, legal and illegal, to do their bidding — is far worse than in 1776. And, that is not even to mention the moral decay that has swept the nation and is rotting it from within, as manifested in our generally filthy and degenerate movies, television and music — which have been furthered by government entities like the Federal Communications Commission, whose commissioners come from both political parties.

Thus, the profound and moving words and self-evident truths contained in the Declaration of Independence ring even more true today than in 1776. They read just in part, "... when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them (meaning 'We the People') under absolute Despotism, its is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

The time has come after a long line of "abuses and usurpations" for us to rise up and demand that our current so called rulers leave "Dodge City," or suffer the consequences as King George III was forced to do.

I am currently in a deep contemplative mood on how to try to do this peacefully without resort to violence. The Founding Fathers, however, ultimately concluded that peaceful means were not possible.

We now find ourselves at a similar crossroads with little time to waste before the nation is totally destroyed by its corrupt and degenerate establishment rulers.
