    Yes things are bad, but what can we do? Intolerable acts drove colonial men subjected to the sting of tyranny into action over two centuries years ago. Before the great battles of the American Revolution took place and the victory that followed, the Founding Fathers took it upon themselves to declare their independence not only by writ, but also by action. Our Founding Fathers ceased the import of British goods, they created their own monetary system, they assembled their own militias, and most importantly they formed their own government based upon their own values, not King George's self-interest.

    This truly measurable independence turned out to be the key to their success, for independence is freedom, and freedom from tyranny is victory. The battle they fought was not one to free themselves, instead, it was fought to defend the freedom from the British system they had already achieved.

    This is perhaps the most overlooked lesson we fail to understand today. We are faced with a tyranny that also spans the globe. It is a tyranny long ago left unchecked and long ago left to fester. It is now a tyranny that runs amok at such pace it may perhaps even destroy itself bringing everyone over the precipice of disaster with it. However, the system born of this tyranny is one we still undoubtedly depend on in our everyday lives.

    Can any of us deny that intolerable acts have been committed against us, not least what has been committed in our names? If not, then now is the time to make ourselves independent, now is the time to begin freeing ourselves from this system. The Founding Fathers did not drink British tea as they camped in the mud, froze in the snow, or marched into battle. But more importantly, before the battles as they signed their names upon their historic declaration, they had already long boycotted it. In this way we too must commit ourselves to boycotting and replacing this system we see as unjust. We cannot possibly be "free" of something we are still entirely dependent on.

    >By boycotting the British system, the Founding Fathers were already free and independent men by the time they signed the Declaration of Independence. The coming war would be to defend that freedom.

    How do you propose to boycott the system?

    The one weakness of our present system is that if the majority of the American citizenry want tyranny, then tyranny they must vote into office.

    True, tyranny behind a mask may be used to get into office, but - fool me once...

    It is a problem of risk analysis and most people's bottom line is "the devil we know is preferred to the devil we don't know." We know the Ds and Rs. Maybe one is marginally better (for us) than the other but I am reasonably confidant that my family and I will survive with either running the show.

    I vote for Ron Paul because he is a wild card and he doesn't have a chance of winning. If I thought he could win I would vote for the strongest R or D. I'm not going to vote to put this country into a Russian/French type of Revolution, not even a war of secession.

    To quote a cliche: "Stranger things have happened".

    Obama was a virtual unknown pre-2008.

    Obama had the global elite on his side. Ron Paul has only the truth.
