    The following link is a local letter to the editor, and I must say, it sums up many, many WVians sentiments... Whether right or wrong, perception drives many. If this is the sentiment of many people in the US.. we may be on the eve of a civil war. Look at the comments after you read the letter.

    I LOVE IT!

    The more the right-wing links President Obama and his supporters as things like "Nazi maggots" you will continue to lose. So, thank you Tim for making my day!

    Please read my OP.. I am not saying I agree with the letter.
    I am merely pointing out some sentiments that a lot of WVians have.

    I have not researched the issues in the letter...

    What I am afraid of is mass hysteria in which many will take up arms without knowing why.

    You have it backwards. The more Obama acts like an arrogant thug the more likely he will be a one term president. So thank you for your continued support.:thumbs:

    Although I did not vote for President Obama, I do support most of what he is proposing.

    I must politely disagree with you here, I don't believe it will be mass hysteria. I agree that many will take up arms, but I believe they are well educated on the matters and will know exactly what they are doing and why.

    Agreed, since my roots are from Wild and Wonderful. They don't call us that for nuttin...... :)

    That's why there's been a rush on guns and ammo and shortages since the election - people have been sensing threat in the air......

    I read the OP but did not read the comments yet. Obama and his followers do not get it - the average working American wants to be free. We don't want a handout. We pay our taxes. We just want to be left alone. Freedom/liberty is bred in us, it is deep within us. It is part of our very being, our essence....It is like the air we breathe. Freedom has been rooted in our souls for generations in America. That's why his dictator policies are inflaming the general working populace.

    Our owners know that Americans are most happy when complaining. As long as our owners can see this sort of stuff in the press they can sleep easy.

    I have no doubt they sleep easy. They have seared their consciences. The Bible talks about that. 1 Timothy 4:2

    One thing that Obama and his kind is overlooking is the Scotts-Irish that is in WV... Many of us come from these strong headed backgrounds.. and LE nailed it.
    It is bred in us.. and actually, if it wasn't for the people from Western VA, the Brits would have won the Revolution...

    Here's something you may not know..
    How did we get the name "Hillbilly"....

    It was a term the Brits gave our ancestors coming out of the hills with what they deemed as "billy clubs"... We fight with whatever we have... and we fight to the death.

    Don't mess with Mountaineers.....

    WE will Always be free.

    Don't tell us what to do...
    Don't assume you know better how to live our lives...

    WE are a tough, rugged, country people, who can survive!
    We did it in the Old Country, and after moving here, we have taken up residence in the hills of WV.. and I bet there is no tougher people in America that us WVians.

    God...Family...Freedom

    Those 3 qualities sum us up.
    So when reading the OP... you can understand why he wrote it that way.

    I for one will preach the Word of God till I die.
    In prison, or out...

    And if the libs get their panties in a wad over me preaching, "thus saith the Lord".. then so what...

    The establishment is scared to death that Americans may see beyond the scope of their partisan divisions and come together to stand up in unison against the offshore bankers and corporations that run the White House, which is why the constant politicized drumbeat that the protesters are nothing more than astroturf Republicans is constantly echoed.​

    In reality, for anyone who has closely tracked the evolution of this movement, the demonstrations owe their origins in an increasing sense of outrage about the multi-trillion dollar looting being carried out by the Federal Reserve in the form of the bailout, the nightmare cap and trade bill, the totalitarian health care proposals, and the general handover of American sovereignty to globalist interests through crony infrastructure sellouts and the emerging North American Union.​

    Although admittedly at an embryonic stage, the scenes we see unfolding across the country could be the spark that ignites the second American revolution. At the very least, the passionate, outraged and bold reaction to the Obama administration’s big government agenda is definitely a sign of things to come, and as each new totalitarian program is rolled out the resistance will only increase and get louder as momentum builds and people across the nation get in the face of the system and yell, “don’t tread on me.”

    The fabricated claims and personal attacks on average Americans who oppose this health care bill is just pure evil. And it shows just how far the Democrat party has slid into the depths of hell. Obama, Pelosi, Ried and all their ilk will have a special place in hell unless they repent. May God reach into their hard and evil hearts and save them.

    May God reach into all our hearts and help us see through "the scope of (our) partisan divisions and come together to stand up in unison against the offshore bankers and corporations that run the White House"

    In fact, the issues are difficult to research. Quoting & locating in the document seems to be a trick used to fool emotional folks :-(

    I think this is mostly agreed upon by most of the states. At one time or another, I am convinced that we may go through a bloody revolution. I think maybe the elite won't this type of revelution so as to use it as a need for complete control over us. When we are getting people of all kinds slipping across into the U.S. that sends me a signal that we will not know just who is our enemy. Craziness is being slipped into our OPEN BORDERS, mostly by Mexico. Why are they so lax on those people but capture people that come by boats into Florida from Cuba or only GOD knows from where. WHY!!!!

    To balkanize the population and create divisions. Who would do such a thing? Look at the corporate partner list on La Raza's website. Why would they do such a thing?

    Creating a North American Community.

    To answer Lou Dobbs, "No, the political elites have not gone mad", they just want you to think that they have.

    The reality over appearance is easily cleared up with a proper historical perspective of the last 35 years of political and economic manipulation by the same elite who now bring us the NAU.

    This paper will explore this history in order to give the reader a complete picture of the NAU, how it is made possible, who are the instigators of it, and where it is headed.
    It is important to first understand that the impending birth of the NAU is a gestation of the Executive Branch of the U.S. government, not the Congress. This is the topic of the first discussion below.

    The next topic will examine the global elite's strategy of subverting the power to negotiate trade treaties and international law with foreign countries from the Congress to the President. Without this power, [​IMG]NAFTA and the NAU would never have been possible.

    After this, we will show that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is the immediate genetic and necessary ancestor of the NAU.

    Lastly, throughout this report the NAU perpetrators and their tactics will be brought into the limelight so as to affix blame where it properly belongs. The reader will be struck with the fact that the same people are at the center of each of these subjects.


    Where is all this going?

    See my signature below. "ultimately leading toward the goal of one world government"

    I think maybe you are right about the elite wanting to start a revolution. As it stands today who would we revolt against? The elite who are working to destroy us or would we turn our guns against each other? The liberals vs the conservatives, would the races go at each other? Most likely.

    This would only serve the elite's purpose and give them a "justification" to declare martial law and bring in the "international peace keepers". Yes Ray I do believe you are right. A revolution is exactly what the elite want.

    We need to see beyond our divisions and what divides us and get a clear picture of who the enemy of the United States really is before we go off half cocked and start something that will ultimately lead to our complete downfall as a free and independent nation.
