a few thoughts on dissent
Watch this 
View More Posts Ignore
Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
-President Thomas Jefferson

Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the President.
-President Theodore Roosevelt

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.
-President Theodore Roosevelt

Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionist and rebel men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.
-President Dwight Eisenhower

" Misred.. thanks for your calm and collected view.. We have the Constitution, Bill of RIghts and Declaration of Independence.. If any one of those founding documents are ever held hostage, it will be the RESPONSIBILTY of people who know the differnce between living in a REPUBPLIC for which we stand as people who have the supreme power to elect their representative and A Democracy whose power is held by the supreme government.

As citizens, we individually decide whether we want to determine our fate or leave it to the powers invested in people may not hold the same views as we as to how we want to live. "

The above videos are definitive representations of the state of dissent in the world today.

like consent can be manufactured so too can dissent dont get hooked up on public figures and political leaders our thoughts are as and can be engineered like any car.Tailored for the international pallet to justify any kind of behaviour,any aggressive act by a government on its own people to rally consent in the form of terror with impunity.Unless you are aware the consitution has been suspended under the terror bill. since 911 "

" My concern is simple... as far as War on Terror.. the current view is to keep your head buried in the sand and deny the possibility of terror.. the more you deny it the more people will believe it does not exist, until one day, in September 2012.. an attack is made on a Consulate in some far off land and four highly regarded US Citizens working for the Government are slaughter.
A Military Major goes off the deep end and fires on fellow co-workers at a military base in Texas and the current administration refers to it as workplace violence
Another option is a recruiting station is fired on and a number of people are killed, but no one in the current administration wants to admit that this action is a terrorist attack against a government office and the military.
My question is this, ove the next four years, how many more US Citizens, Military or civilian will die under the definition of workplace violence or mis-guided videos or poor some other ill-fated excuse.
I have seen death of fellow co-workers and others in battle on foreign soil... we need more supportive leadership that cares more about the citizens than political clout. "

" mama you have been decieved so blatently and so often you have learnt how to decieve yourself.Complexifying that which is simple engineering and limiting your choices thru mechanisms like the economic crisis or wars with exiting titles.All our institutions public and private secular and religious are geared toward that function and have been for hundreds of years the fact that you believe in them is proof as to how effective they are at controlling your life your mind and subsequebtly your future.
You imagine you are free because you chose the colour of your dress,Wear black from now on for all the souls of the unfree including yourself "
