Arctic Patriot: Thank You, John

AP writes a letter.

A must-read letter.

And resist them with vigor, ye rebels, they come to take all ye are and have. But do come out to fight, it is a good day to die!

That also makes me want to write a letter - to my uncle Fudd.

I would like to echo a familiar refrain - that I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country. Thank you, Nathan Hale. I am almost 65 years old, the leading edge of the Boomer generation, and there is only one thing that I can think would be worth the trivial life I have led - to lose it in the fight for my liberty.

Yes, it is a good day to die.

Just remember. If we have enough warning, maybe there won't be any gunships popping up over the horizion. If this gets going in enough places, maybe there won't be enough Bradleys and AFVs to go around.
Never underestimate your enemy, but we will be fighting for our homes and the future of our families. The modern-day Hessian will be that second-year college student/PFC or SP4 national guard shirker who hasn't had any serious training since Infantry AIT. He/she may only have a well-used M4, the basic ammo load and a bayonet.
A big part of the fight will rest on how well you know your enemy ahead of time. In my community, the biggest initial danger will be the Tories who are still welded to the Leviathan by a government check or Marxist ideology, or both. Plan, prepare, and then do.

Many of your illusions about the ability of politics to produce safety are being disproven before your eyes. You rush to replace your disproven illusions with other illusions, such as that God puts his finger on the scales of battle on the side of the morally correct. Or that anyone who falls in battle receives a hero's welcome in a land of everlasting life. Obey the priests, go to your death, and receive a huge payoff supplied by magic, like Social Security.

Instead, here's a path that requires even more courage: Don't hide from your terror by displacing it with war-fever. Don't hide from your separation with those closest to you by making new solder friends. Instead, be calm and don't escalate. Pay the taxes that are demanded of you, so you give the Bad People less excuse to single you out. But tell your family and your friends and your neighbors that you're rejecting politics, and why. Face their disapproval and their cries of traitor squarely. Go over the dollar-collapse waterfall with your eyes open. Watch every last illusion about politics be disproven. And still don't escalate unless you are truly forced into it.

I'm not saying you should stop your PT, or any practical training thing. But doing solder things for real before you have to, committing your remaining life to chance, is a kind of submissiveness. Do you feel relief because you no longer have to make the big choices? If so, you have surrendered to collectivism.

For TPaine, Perhaps it is a better idea for some bastard on the other side to die for his misguided beliefs. Trying to recall an old quote where a soldier was told to NOT die for his country but to make the other dumb bastard to die for his. I don't see where we have to always be on the receiving end. GUNWALKER needs to get out to more & more people so all can see how corrupt this gubmint really is.
