Great idea. How many "patriots" are irresponsible enough to leave their jobs for several months while this takes place? How many of us could go without food or just not pay our debts to do this? This is where we have a problem the "occupiers" do not. None of them are producers of their own and their dependents income. They live off the government teat and will get their welfare and food stamps no matter where they are. They've got the tactics all sewn up. They are also prone to violence, who amongst us is? I dare say none.

I do not mean to quarrel with you but did the founding fathers dither about who would bring in their crops or how they would sustain themselves in their cause? I think not.

If we are to hold onto the liberties we so cherish, it will not be easily accomplished and it won't happen overnight. We must prepare ourselves to be ready to make sacrifices.

Instead of millionaires trying to buy feckless politicians, perhaps their money could be put to better use by monetarily supporting the people that would be willing to put their boots on the ground in this battle. Much like the unions support their members when their is a strike.

Where there is an iron will, there will be a way revealed to us to take appropiate action.

Let’s start with a shocking, but true premise: If you are a patriotic American, you believe that there are circumstances under which it is right to take up arms against your own government. That statement feels wrong to me. It reeks of militia and McVeigh and toothless loons holed up with guns in cabins in order to avoid paying income taxes.

But the fact remains that the rationale for the existence of the nation known as the United States of America, which first appeared in print 236 years ago today, is entirely dependent on the premise...
