Patriots, wake up! It’s time to protect our country and our rights against a government of wolves that grows more power-hungry with every passing day.Well, OK, I thought, but what does an "awake" patriot look like in these days? What does a patriot do, after having awakened?
Does he try to build a revolution, and overthrow our criminal supervisors? A one-person revolution is simply suicide on very unfavorable terms, even assuming that the lone revolutionary manages to get noticed by his rulers. Join a militia? Trouble is, one could be reasonably assured that half of those involved would be paid agents provocateur or some other form of police spy, and the other half would be people who are convinced that we're not killing Mooslims, or Metsicans, or both, fast enough or in great enough numbers; or who have unreasonable problems with black folks or Jewish folks or Catholic folks or whomever. In other words, people whose company I don't care to keep.
Does he get out and vote? Been there, done that ... no change.
Does he ... write a blog? Yeah, sure. Am there, doing that. A certain amount of fun, but no change.
Really, Mr. Whitehead, I am awake ... I think. Just clueless about what to do about it.
