As Recently As 1946, American Citizens Were Forced To Take Up Arms As A Last Resort Against Corrupt Government Officials.
The Daily Post-Athenian, Athens, Tenn., August 7, 1946; pages 1, 6
Editor’s Note — Our attention has been called to Mrs. Roosevelt’s column upon McMinn. She seems to have grasped the facts and significance better than any other outside writer:
McMinn A Warning — By Eleanor Roosevelt
New York, Monday — After any war, the use of force throughout the world is almost taken for granted. Men involved in the war have been trained to use force, and they have discovered that, when you want something, you can take it. The return to peacetime methods governed by law and persuasion is usually difficult.
We in the U.S.A., who have long boasted that, in our political life, freedom in the use of the secret ballot made it possible for us to register the will of the people without the use of force, have had a rude awakening as we read of conditions in McMinn County, Tennessee, which brought about the use of force in the recent primary. If a political machine does not allow the people free expression, then freedom-loving people lose their faith in the machinery under which their government functions.
In this particular case, a group of young veterans organized to oust the local machine and elect their own slate in the primary. We may deplore the use of force but we must also recognize the lesson which this incident points for us all. When the majority of the people know what they want, they will obtain it.
Any local, state or national government, or any political machine, in order to live, must give the people assurance that they can express their will freely and that their votes will be counted. The most powerful machine cannot exist without the support of the people. Political bosses and political machinery can be good, but the minute they cease to express the will of the people, their days are numbered.
This is a lesson which wise political leaders learn young, and you can be pretty sure that, when a boss stays in power, he gives the majority of the people what they think they want. If he is bad and indulges in practices which are dishonest, or if he acts for his own interests alone, the people are unwilling to condone these practices.
When the people decide that conditions in their town, county, state or country must change, they will change them. If the leadership has been wise, they will be able to do it peacefully through a secret ballot which is honestly counted, but if the leader has become inflated and too sure of his own importance, he may bring about the kind of action which was taken in Tennessee.
If we want to continue to be a mature people who, at home and abroad, settle our difficulties peacefully and not through the use of force, then we will take to heart this lesson and we will jealously guard our rights. What goes on before an election, the threats or persuasion by political leaders, may be bad but it cannot prevent the people from really registering their will if they wish to.
The decisive action which has just occurred in our midst is a warning, and one which we cannot afford to overlook.

Deal with the warmongers : American Politicians
By Bradlee Dean
“The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.” –Herman Goring [End]
The game before you is not Clinton Vs. Trump it is The Globalists Vs. We The People. The longer humanity does nothing to end betrayal by church, state, corporations, and mainstream media, the worse conditions become for everyone. Doreen

Cyber War Has Begun as Obama/Clinton Cut Internet For Wikileaks
From Bix Weir
|The Obama/Clinton faction has cut the internet off for Julian Assange…a move that will only speed up the release of more information even faster.
Wikileaks activates “Contingency Plans” After Unknown “State Party” Cuts Julian Assange’s Internet Connection
In what may be the first official retaliation against Julian Assange and Wikileaks since the organization started disseminating the hacked Podesta emails, this morning WikiLeaks announced it has “activated contingency” plans after Assange’s internet link was intentionally cut off by a state party, WikiLeaks has said in a tweet.

At the same time the bank that services my ONLY favorite MSM news agency RT (Russia Today) in the UK were were shut down by RBS giving no explanation why. As we all know…Freedom of Speech is a “controlled freedom” these days.
Get ready for more and more of this…and a lot worse.
From Anna von Reitz
If you really want to be free and stand in honor, you can’t vote in their elections for the simple reason that it is a foreign corporation. You don’t actually elect the President. The Electoral College does. http://annavonreitz.com/election2016.pdf
NO votes by we the people delegitimizes imposter politicians.
Please share the above at this late hour. Nov 08, 2016 is only 20 days away!
