Come the Revolution

Naval Aviator, Commander Jerry Wilson wrote a powerful - and ominous - letter. He warns us of what may come sooner than most people think, and he is not afraid to say the unthinkable. How likely is a revolution in the United States? I mean an actual, in-the-streets, house to house, block to block revolution? Wilson wrote, in part: "Mark my words friends. All across America groups are forming. They are forming out of anger and out of desperation at the thought of losing America. They're not militia groups, terrorists as the Department of Homeland security would have you believe; they are Americans, loyal to the Constitution. They are mothers and fathers and grandparents. They belong to groups like the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps, the Peaceful Resistance, the Constitution Party, the Young Conservatives, the 9/12 Project, and Grassfire. Right now they are fragmented, each focused on their own cause." I fear that Wilson is correct in, essentially, predicting a civil war or revolution. Call it what you will. While I don't want to see it happen, and I don't believe it is inevitable, the likelihood grows stronger by the week. "As for you, why, you'll be shocked because you didn't see it coming," Wilson writes, "And eventually you'll be saddened when you see that we have truly lost the way of life with which you grew up. You'll be saddened that your children and grandchildren live in a socialist, government- controlled gulag where their every movement from cradle to grave is tracked by the government." When you see well-dressed, blue-haired old ladies holding protest signs and marching in the streets, as we have now at many tea party events, it's a sign that something has shifted dramatically. We're mad as hell, and we're on the verge of not being willing to take it any longer. More excerpts from Wilson's letter: "But sometime in the next two years, our government is going to do something really stupid and these groups will come together. Watch for it, wait for it - get ready. It will happen. "There are a growing number of citizens in the US that are ready to fight to shut down the government's grab of personal freedom, its blatant abuse of the constitution, and it's an attempt to replace the American way of life with socialism. You have to listen carefully to hear them, but they are there. I won't start that fight, but when it goes down I will join it." You can read the entire editorial by Jerry Wilson at My Free Press. The American Revolution of 1776 was started over fewer and less severe offenses than those that have been spat upon the American people over the past year. Keep your powder dry, and God bless America. Leave a Comment * Conservative T-Shirts Follow CNB on Twitter * RSS Feed
