    The Good Guys are NOT Coming to Save Us!

    Excellent article. Looks like we're all waiting and hoping for the best. THE GOOD GUYS ARE NOT COMING TO SAVE US
    Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia...Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

    OK, let's try it with cut and paste: THE GOOD GUYS ARE NOT COMING TO SAVE US

    A lot of Americans know that the US government is out of control. Anyone who has cared enough to study the US Constitution even a little knows this. Still, very few of these people are taking any significant action, and largely because of one error: They are waiting for “the good guys” to show up and fix things.
    Some think that certain groups of politicians will pull it together and fix things, or that one magnificent politician will ride in to fix things. Others think that certain members of the military will step in and slap the politicians back into line. And, I’m sure there are other variations.
    There are several problems with this. I’ll start with the small issues:

    1. It doesn’t happen. A lot of good people have latched on to one grand possibility after another, waiting for a good guy to save the day, and it just doesn’t happen. Thousands of hours of reading, writing and waiting are burned with each new “great light” who comes along with a promise to run the system in the “right” way, and give us liberty and truth. (Or whatever.) Lots of decent folks grab on to one pleasant dream after another, only to end up right back where they started… but poorer in time, energy and finances.
    2. Hope is a scam. It’s a dream of someday, somehow, getting something for nothing. People who hope do not act – they wait for other people to act. Hope is a tool to neuter a natural opposition: they sit and hope, and never act against you. Even the biblical meaning of hope is something more like expectation (or sometimes waiting) than the modern use of hope.
    3. Petitioning an abuser for compassion. The “good guys” are considered to be a few people inside the abusive government. But if the good guys were really good, wouldn’t they have dissociated themselves with an abuser some time ago? By pleading for the good guys to rise up, people are asking one sub-group of the abusers to save them from the rest of the abusers. However, they all work for the same operation; they all get paid out of the same offices; according to the same rulebook. And if the good guys are so willing to turn against their employers, why would they have waited until now?
    4. Movies. We all grew up in the company of movie heroes who rode in at the last minute to save the noble victims. From John Wayne to Star Trek to Bruce Willis, the story line differs little. These are pleasant stories, of course, but cinema is not reality, and hoping for it to become reality is something that we should get over prior to adulthood.

    But, as I say, those are the smaller issues. Let’s move on to the serious ones.
    The Magic System

    A lot of Americans believe that the American “Founders” created a system that automatically fixes itself. They talk about the “balance of powers,” and think that it will always save them from a tyrant. The balanced powers of the US Constitution, however, were trashed within fifteen years and doubly-trashed just a century ago.
    In the Constitution, the states balanced the power of the national government (the one now in Washington, DC.) Not only did the states control half of the legislature, but they decided if and how they would implement the edicts of the national government. And that included deciding whether a law was constitutional or not.
    This changed in 1803 with the Marbury v. Madison ruling. This ruling – taught as a work of genius in American schools – was a fraud against the US Constitution. In it, the Supreme Court held that they understood the Constitution better than James Madison, the man who wrote it!
    But worse than even this, they held – with absolutely no basis – that it was they who would decide what was constitutional or not. The states were tossed aside. Even the sitting President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, called it “a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.”
    Marbury’s Judicial review (the Supremes ruling on constitutionality) merely involves one branch of the national government providing a check on the other branches of the national government. After Marbury, no one could check the national government.
    Washington DC was unleashed with Marbury v. Madison. What made it almighty was the 17th Amendment of 1913, which took the powers of the states and transferred them to Washington, by mandating the popular election of senators.
    With senators being elected directly by the populace, the states were cut-out of the equation. In their place, political parties gained massive power, and nearly all power was consolidated in the city of Washington.
    And so it is today. Washington is an unfettered beast. The system will NOT fix itself; the mechanisms to do that were lost a long time ago.


    The Easy Way Out

    Standing up against a beast like Washington DC is scary, to be sure. Understandably, not many people want to do such a thing. But if the beast is abusing you, what other choice do you have? You can certainly avoid or evade the beast, but we all know that the beast hurts people it catches avoiding it, so the risk of doing this isn’t zero either.
    So, what’s a person to do? They hate their abuse, but outright disobedience would be scary. Unfortunately, many people have come up with a third option: Get someone else to do it for you.
    Lots of writers have done this, for example: Write flamboyantly about the abuses people face and stir them to “rise up against the power.” Fairly seldom does the writer take big risks himself – he just stirs up others to do the scary stuff.
    Something very similar happens to basically moral people who don’t want to risk pain and suffering: they imagine good guys riding in to save them.
    But, as I say, these are genuinely decent people, and they are willing to take smaller risks to help the good guys: They will spend time and money promoting them, and they will even accept name-calling in many cases. They just don’t want to become full-blown rebels and outcasts.
    The result of this is predictable: abuse by the political class. If the politicians show them a viable possibility every election cycle, they’ll keep voting their way forever… and the hero never really has to show up.
    The Sad Truth

    Let’s just say it:
    No one is going to ride in and save you.
    If you want things to get better, then YOU will have to make them better. YOU will have to stand up and take the arrows, yourself. Liberty, at this stage of human development, requires risk and pain.
    I trust that you will remember the end of Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount: That it is not those who call upon his name who will be saved, but only those who DO the things he said.
    Likewise in this situation, our only hope of salvation lies in DOING.

    Excellent article.

    If anyone believes that the problem is going to go away on its own, I have only one thing to say.
    Don't close your eyes and go to sleep.
    I'd rather be a Conservative Nutjob. Than a Liberal with NO Nuts & NO Job

    The more things change the more they stay the same. All are Signs of the End of the Age & this Last Generation. Nothing new, everything just like the "End of The Book" has read for thousands of years. "The Sad Truth" is that we are living at the end of the Last Generation, the seeds of destruction have already been planted and cultivated. At this stage of human development it's far too late to make anything better, quite to the contrary. For this reason America isn't even mentioned in End Times Prophecy.

    QUOTE=dcselby1- "I trust that you will remember the end of Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount: That it is not those who call upon his name who will be saved, but only those who DO the things he said.
    Likewise in this situation, our only hope of salvation lies in DOING".



    Acts 2:21 – And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.


    To call on the name of the Lord is literally to take on the Lord’s name (His character). This expression has the idea of a wife taking on her husband’s name. It means much more than just calling out her husband’s name. In Biblical times, the name was associated with the person’s character. When we talk about the name of the Lord what we really mean is His character. Therefore, those who “call upon the name of the Lord” as the text in Acts says, literally they take on the character of the Lord. They become like Him. They call His name upon themselves.

    The passage in Matthew 7 comes from Jesus Christ’s famous “Sermon on the Mount” and in this section He is speaking of those who call Jesus “Lord” (they say that He is their Lord) yet they do not do what He says. They do not obey Him. These people have never “called on the name of the Lord” (taken on His character) because they do not live like He did. Therefore, when they give Him lip service as Lord and do not obey Him, He will cast them out because they never knew Him and He never knew them.

    Praise God for salvation by grace through faith in the finished work of Christ! Our hope for salvation does not lie in "our" DOING anything. Our only hope of salvation lies in what Christ has already DONE, period. Our only hope for ESCAPING the upcoming nightmare lies in what Christ has yet to DO, it's called the Rapture/Blessed Hope.

    From the article (which is awesome by the way):

    From a post I made on this site 2/21/13:

    I don’t want to get too long-winded here, so let me first say that I greatly respect where the above essay is coming from, and acknowledge its necessity at this dire time in our history. There are problems however. The number one problem is adhering to the meme that we should remain within a constitutional framework. I say that not as a prelude to lobbying for violence, but as a prelude to imploring all Patriots reading this to educate themselves about just how constitutional the Constitution is anymore. The fact is, since 1913, it has been a dead document. It is not the Constitution that was ratified. It has been infiltrated and made impotent by the illegal insertion of the 16th and 17th Amendments, which anyone can (and should) read about here: Devvy Kidd -- 36 States Did Not Ratify 17th Amendment - What Will States Do? . Of course, there are myriad other sources too if you’re not happy with that one for some reason. Further, that same year saw the creation of the Federal Reserve, which, combined with the illegal income tax and the “popular” vote for senators, turned our formerly constitutional system of economics and sovereign states federalism on its head.


    In short, there is no reason to predicate our activism (or militancy if that be the ultimate decision of The People) upon a document that has no original meaning left in it. It has been dead for 100 years now. It was severely injured just a few short years after its ratification with the Marbury vs. Madison ruling, which resulted in “judicial review” that gives SCOTUS a higher status as lawmakers than Congress in this supposedly “separation of powers” republic. We need to stand on our inherent, natural, God-given rights which are only acknowledged as such in the Constitution, not granted or legitimized by it. The Constitution itself is irrelevant to our natural rights. They exist whether the Constitution is held as the (man’s) supreme law of the land, or is repealed in full, either by statute or by fiat of a single tyrant like Obama or the oligarchy which operates with him currently.
    I think somebody at the Daily Sheeple must be reading here and stealing my material! LOL Jus' kiddin'. Even if they were doing that, it wouldn't matter to me. I learned whatever I know by reading other people's works, and didn't start writing and posting about it until I understood the issues well enough to do so in my own words. It's extremely important information to get out and I'm stoked that others are spreadin' the word.

    Good article dscelby1. Thanks for it.
    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    What I find most disgusting and disappointing is not the piece of crap in the whitehouse nor his inner circle and cabinet composed of the inmates that run this asylum we used to call the USA, but the almost 200 democrat reps and senators who just act like lemmings and are willing to follow this garbage and his tweedle dee pelosi and tweedle dum reid right over the cliff. I cannot believe that all of them are so enamored with this imbecilic and dangerous administration that they cannot see the writing on the wall. I guess they are so full of greed with their power and all the perks that they just do not care--it infuriates me no end. I can tell you that the good guys may not come but when the bad ones do, someone will go to hell before I go to heaven. I am not a sheep and as I have said before, I am not going to be like my fellow Jews in Germany who walked off to their deaths when the bad guys eventually came. I see this as a very real possibility--history may very well repeat only with a black moslem Hitler.
