Many of you may know that I am a strategic analyst. I often get asked to look at certain big problems in my professional life. I have taken my extensive resources and decided to see if I could come up with a solution to the political problems now facing our country. Specifically, I wanted to find a way to stop our out of control federal government and get back to a functioning democratic republic where the will of the people reigns supreme and free. And most importantly, my plan must not lead to bloodshed. I have been conducting the research for several months and I will be presenting the plan in a series of essays here on Google + starting with this one. Perhaps this will go nowhere. But it could become viral and maybe we could get our country back from the special interests and political parties that have managed to almost ruin us. Here goes my Hail Mary pass play.

How to legally take back the United States without getting killed or arrested

Part One: A New Spirit of Patriotism

“Old forms of government finally grow so oppressive that they must be thrown off even at the risk of reigns of terror.” - Herbert Spencer, 1851

Throughout our country’s history, at least until recently, free people would prefer to endure terrorism and anarchy, even at home, rather than sacrifice any amount of liberty or freedom. I guarantee that our forefathers had to deal with every aspect of terrorism, both global and domestic, that our modern society is faced with. And don't think for a minute that weapons of mass destruction did not exist. Military history is full of accounts of diseases like the plague being used in warfare and terrorism as far back as the Romans and ancient Greeks. And fire is the most primal weapon of mass destruction and terror ever discovered.

Bombs and explosives have been around and in use by terrorists for hundreds of years before our country was even founded. "Remember remember the fifth of November?” That was in 1605. The United States didn't even exist then and yet, that was the same type of plot as the attacks of 9/11. The Gunpowder Plot was a conspiracy to kill the King of England and as many other officials as possible when they tried to blow up the House of Lords, an official government building with innocent people and families inside. And that building represented the same sort of symbol to England as the Trade Centers represented to the U.S. – which is why they were chosen for terrorist targets. Even the concept of terrorism itself is nothing new. If you consider the psychological nature of terrorism’s roots, it probably goes back as far as the idea of warfare itself.

No aspect of this modern "global war on terrorism" is unique to our time and yet suddenly everyone acts like this is some new terrible threat. That's just not true. It is a provable fact that all throughout our history, there have been times and places where people have wanted to do harm to Americans, simply because they were Americans. From making a political statement, to kidnapping for money, to merely killing for sport, Americans have been at risk of death when traveling abroad since before our country was founded. And contrary to popular notion, 9/11 was not the first time a terrorist attack took place on American soil; nor was it the largest death toll from terrorism on American soil; nor was it the first time that a major U.S. city like New York was attacked by the same terrorist group multiple times; nor was it the first time a financial institution in New York was targeted or blown up by a terrorist group; nor was it the first time a non-state terrorist group attacked political and financial targets inside our country.

9/11 was a terrible attack. But it was nothing new.

Anyone who tells you that the modern terrorism threat posed to Americans by such groups as al-Qaeda is something that the world has never seen… is lying to you.

Anyone who tells you that the attacks of 9/11 were the worst and highest casualty terrorist attacks on American soil… is lying to you.

Anyone who tells you that a threat from home-grown or lone-wolf terrorists are something new and that you should sacrifice your freedom and liberties to fight that threat… is lying to you.

Anyone who tells you that a large American city like New York has never been targeted for political attack multiple times… is lying to you.

Anyone who tells you that a foreign non-government political extremist group has never attacked a major American financial symbol or political target on our soil… is lying to you.

Anyone who tells you that a foreign non-government political extremist group has never attacked or targeted high ranking U.S. Government officials for assassination on our soil… is lying to you.

And history proves it. (1)

More casualties than 9/11 and by individual acts of murder, not mass murder:

United States 1865-1877: Over 3000 Freedmen and their Republican Party allies were killed by a combination of the Ku Klux Klan and well-organized campaigns of violence by local whites in a campaign of terrorist violence that overthrew the reconstructionist governments in the American South and re-established segregation.

Home-grown and lone-wolf terrorists with multiple attacks for political ends:

United States 1910, 1 October: Los Angeles Times Bombing by a member of the International Association of Bridge and Structural Iron Workers Union killed 21 people and injured an additional 100. It was part of a string of terrorist bombings and violence inflicted by both sides over labor disputes.

Foreign terrorist group attacks a building in the financial sector of New York:

United States 1920, 16 September: Wall Street Bombing killed 38 people and wounded 300 others. The bombing was carried out by Galleanists (Italian anarchists), a group responsible for a series of bombings the previous year that targeted high-ranking U.S. officials and influential businessmen including the U.S. Attorney General and John D. Rockefeller. They publicly despised the American way of life and attempted to deliver three dozen bombs to government officials during the May Day holiday celebration.

As you can tell, America has been the target of the same type of terrorist attacks and for much the same reasons as the current terrorism threat… at least for the last 150 years. If you consider the organized and foreign sponsored criminal activity that preyed on the citizens of the wild west and earlier times as a form of domestic terrorism and add in the killings and terrorism surrounding the major border disputes between the super-powers of the 15th through the 18th centuries on this continent, then the time frame for terrorism being a regular occurrence inside the borders of America is more like 500 or 600 years.

It’s time to get over it and stop being such whiny babies.

When did Americans become so afraid? Our country was founded by citizens who said, "Give me Liberty, or give me Death.” Today the average American is willing to sacrifice anything, including their freedom and liberty, to pretend they're safe from something they have less chance of experiencing than being struck by lightning. Significantly less chance, by the way. If we gave away as many freedoms as we have recently when terrorists attacked our country in the past, we still would not have prevented 9/11. All we would have done is make our country more like a police state and less like the home of the free. And all we have gained by allowing our freedoms to be usurped in the name of defense is a growing threat of violence from:

► our own government,
► our own police forces,
► our own military forces.

Now for some reality checks from a soldier.

1) Terrorism is a tactic, not an enemy. You cannot wage war on a tactic. It’s as much nonsense as saying we are going to have a war against sneaking around.

2) Terrorists are criminals. Criminals with political agendas or military targets are still criminals. Hunting down and killing criminals with soldiers may feel good, but it is not war.

3) War is not a political tool. War is the failure of political tools.

4) The only people who have earned the right to use the word “war” are soldiers, because everyone else seems to have forgotten what it means.

It is time to end this travesty that has usurped the true horrible meaning of “war” into a political jingo. It is time that America stopped all its “wars.” Cease the un-winnable and un-ending “War on Terror.” Stop the insane and expensive “War on Drugs.” Stop the police state tactics in the “War on Crime.” Stop the short-sighted and self-damaging “War on Illegal Immigration.” Put an end to the ridiculous oil-backed “War on Climate Science.” Put an end to the religious backed “War on Evolution and Science Education.” In fact, stop or put an end to all the stupid political rhetoric “wars” that have been generated by special interests, tossed around by the media, and then legislatively turned into profit streams for oil companies or, even worse, for the military supply chain or the religious fanatics of this country.

When someone says they are going to have a symbolic "War" on something, it means one of three things:

1) they are going to buy a lot of military equipment and throw it at the issue, or

2) they are just going to straight out throw money at the issue, or

3) they are losing a lot of money and want to stop it by making the issue a villain.

In any of these cases, it's not really "war" they’re talking about. And it always means that someone is either making a profit or protecting a profit.

American politicians need to stop using the word “war” for their silly little political or social conflicts. The only people who truly know what that word means have personally been in the real thing. And I guarantee you not one of them will tell you that the modern symbolic use of the word is accurate. War is not the same as making a stupid set of laws and then actively trying to catch those who break it. War is not any of the inane things that it has been applied to by the media or, worse yet, the moronic politicians who are pushing hidden agendas on top of false patriotism. The improper and foolhardy misuse of the word "war" has led to the reduction in the natural revulsion humans should have for the concept.

War is not cool. War should not be profitable for anybody. War should be avoided at all cost because when true war comes, it takes a toll and a cost on everyone in the society that is waging the war.

But that's not how it's done in this country anymore.

War is such a common concept these days, that Americans don't seem to mind that we are sending some of our finest young men and women away to foreign lands to be crippled, mentally vegetated or outright killed. We have become so desensitized to the idea of wholesale death and destruction at the hands of American forces that we ignore the actual deaths that are occurring on both sides.

This is close to becoming like that original Star Trek episode where two planets had sterilized the idea of war to the point that synchronized computers on both worlds would simulate an attack and counter-attack. Then the computers would calculate the casualties that each side should have suffered. And then the citizens on both planets voluntarily went to a termination chamber to die in order to keep the death accounting accurate and to avoid the ugliness of actual war.

The only people in this country who are suffering the effects of this current war are the families and friends of the soldiers who are fighting and dying. Everyone else is concerned about Whitney Houston, or how fat the cover-girl of Sports Illustrated should be, or whatever the current distraction of the day may be. The military officers waging the war at the top levels don’t want it to end because this is what they live for. The politicians don’t want to end the wars because it can be used to make them look weak on defense. And instead of the citizens of the country demanding that this madness and death stop, my friends and colleagues have been dying every week and every month since 9/11. And the number of them is now far greater than the innocents who died that horrible day.

I must be the only one willing to say this out loud, "enough is enough." This “eye for an eye” shit has to stop. We must end this madness now.

If you're tired of this crazy and dangerous path that our leaders have started us down, then prepare to vote out every single one of the politicians that currently hold office. Prepare to take back your country from the madmen and madwomen who are currently leading it down a road to absolute guaranteed destruction and ruin. No one who is in office now will be part of the solution. Neither is anyone who is currently running for office. They all must go. We must start fresh with completely new individuals who have agreed beforehand to behave differently. And we can’t wait until the next election. It has to happen now.

I boldly call on all Americans to come together in a new spirit of patriotism.

“Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the President or any other public official save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth–whether about the President or anyone else.” - Theodore Roosevelt

Well, I’m going to tell you the truth. About the President and everyone else who is currently in office or running for office.

The truth is this: They do not care about you. Not one iota. They care only about the organization that is going to pay to get them elected or re-elected. And you are not part of that organization and you never will be. Accept it and get over it. Because it’s true.




I discuss what I mean by that in Part Two: (https://plus.google.com/103984595971776502972/posts/DzN2iyTe2Pz)
