Then and now?

Overheard in a tavern in old Philadelphia….

foundingfathers

We have to attack now George or else they will destroy us. I know Ben but the men are just not ready for an full out attack right now. We haven’t been able to get enough for my men to eat because they started to ration all food supplies. It is even becoming impossible to buy any bullets because our enemy has bought up millions of rounds. And don’t even think about getting rifles for the new men that are joining, those government solders have confiscated every rifle they found. They force themselves into someones home and take all the food, ammo and firearms they find, we are definitely hurting.

To think this started because our leader started to think of himself as a king, who could do whatever he wanted. Using our taxes to pay off his supporters and even bribing foreign nations with large chunks of money just to be our friends, when even they are looking to attack us. All the while breaking our backs by raising the tax rate on everything from tobacco to tea and at the same time taking away more of our God given rights.

I am glad George you finally agreed to lead the revolt, I know it was a hard choice for you to lead the men who are trying to overthrow the government. You gave up not only your comfortable home and your wealth but now, because of that act of treason, you are faced with the death penalty if your are ever captured. Ben I did it because it was the right thing to do, we as a people could not afford to wait any longer. Soon all our inalienable rights bestowed on us by God and the constitution would be washed away by the stain of socialism. This country is great because we have always rewarded hard work with success, now the pretend king wants everyone to be equal weather they work for it or not.

Was this a conversation overheard in 1776 or last week after the senate passed a new tax bill and outlawed assault rifles? In December 1776 George Washington left a meeting like that and successfully lead his men across the Delaware river on an attack on Trenton, New Jersey which was the beginning of the end of English rule.

But that same meeting in that tavern could be happening in 2013

because conditions in America are almost identical.

    You have such an interesting way of putting things to really make me think and simultaneously scarring the crap outta me. :)
