Is it Time for Civil Disobedience?

Explained by Budwick...

When the government rules by illegitimate means, is it legitimate to peacefully stand in defiance and disobey?

No. It's way the hell and gone past time!

America: land of the gutless and the home of the gelded.

Most Americans can't understand why the rest of the world views us with scorn and laughs at our silly prattling about 'freedom.'

I sometimes think Americans need to live in another country to see how the rest of the world truly sees us.

Whenever the citizenry is unhappy with how government is operating it is time. Truth be told, by the time they get upset, it is well past time.

I don't understand. We express our dissatisfaction with government by behaving morally - Is that it?

If we have civil morality throughout, including the ruling-class in DC, then they will follow the Constitution, problem solved.

Today, the ruling-class in DC are “disobedient,” for they do not follow the US Constitution. In 2016 we need to elect moral leaders in DC.

And in saying that, during the week in celebrating the Fourth of July and our Independence, the ruling-class and the world should review life’s Unalienable Rights.

Mike, you wrote - "If we have civil morality throughout, including the ruling-class in DC, then they will follow the Constitution, problem solved."

But they're not doing that - hence the question, is it time for civil disobedience.

We already have “civil disobedience,” and how is that working out? You think more will solve the problem? We need to get back to our founding and morally follow those principles.

“Civil disobedience” will only make you neighborhood uncivil giving the tyrannical ruling-class in DC more excuse to move our government further into a police state aka “fundamental change.”

The time for civil disobedience will be when the courts start legislating and Congress fails to function and the president rules with deception and executive order.

It's too late for that. It will take 50 years to undo the special rights and moral decay perpetrated by the liberals.
I plan to sit back in my rocking chair and laugh at the repercussions.

It's all over. Remember when we were kids, we pretended to be a famous football or baseball player. "I'm Bob Hayes"..."I'm Bart Starr".. "I'm Dr. J."...and so on. A little girl was playing in a yard across the street the other day. 6 years old and she said "I'm Hillary Clinton".

depends on your resolve if you are willing to endure pain and suffering to show the world the injustice of your enemy then go by peace if its your will being forced onto the world by action take the path of war but remember this all glory is fleeting and someday your nation too will fall to tyrants.
