The following video doesn’t offer much in the way of information, but it offers a great deal in terms of emotion and even motivation. It doesn’t tell us what all soldiers feel, but it tells us what some soldiers feel–and I don’t think that these soldiers represent a mere “fringe” element.
There’s a growing “Limited Government Movement”. That movement is not yet cohesive or even self-aware, but it’s the common denominator between the Tea Party, Occupy Wall Street, Anonymous, Wikileaks, and whistle-blowers “movements”. It’s the common denominator behind the recent Debt Ceiling vs Obamacare “drama” in Congress, the veterans who “reopened” veterans memorials closed by big government during the “government shutdown,” and the 26 state legislatures that have considered or even enacted laws to expressly prohibit their state’s enforcement of some federal laws.
The “Limited Government Movement” is motivated by people who understand that government has not only gone too far, but intends to go much further. Even people associated with big government are fed up with big government. We are increasingly sick of, and even frightened by, the modern government’s dedication to more, bigger and even unlimited government. The “Limited Government Movement” wants to return to the “limited government” still guaranteed by our State and federal constitutions.
There’s a “Limited Government” Revolution taking place now. It’s been growing for at least five years–maybe since 9/11, maybe even from the loss of constitutional money in A.D. 1971. It’s already been happening, but it hasn’t had a name. It’s been expressed in scores of smaller “movements”–but that common denominator is always there: people want smaller, limited, constitutional government.
The government calls such people “domestic terrorists” and “sovereign citizens”–but the real terrorists are those who favor unlimited (lawless) government. The real terrorists and treasonous whores are those who favor big government.
How will the Limited Government Movement be stopped? And if it’s not stopped, what will prevent the day from coming when we see trials for treason? Lots of ’em.
