What will it take?

A very good summer afternoon read.

"We in the liberty movement all talk about “restoring rightful liberty” whatever that means to the folks talking about it. Many of us call ourselves three percenters, alluding to the three percent of the patriots who fought for liberty during the revolutionary war.
Let’s look at the numbers. In 1776 the colonies numbered some 2.4 million people with about 80% English/Irish/Scottish/Welsh descent, 9% German and 4% Dutch.  About 90% were farmers.  Some 200,000 were slaves from Africa.
Historians suggest that 40-45% of the colonists were Patriots. 15-20% were Loyalists.  35-45% never chose a side."

Honestly I'm pretty sure the only way that Canada and the US come out the otherside of this head long drive towards tolitarianism is with a lot of bloodshed.

At some point the chained mob that certain parties have whipped into a frenzy will break free of its chains and turn on its creator and anyone or thing in front of it. That mob will make robesperiere's purges and executions look like a walk in the park.
