More Omens of Violence

Excerpts from an Southern Poverty Law Center article entitled, "Antigovernment ‘Patriots’: ‘Are You Willing to Kill for Liberty?’

One-time Libertarian Party presidential candidate Michael Badnarick insinuated that a new revolution is in the offing. “Is the government evil? Yes. Are they willing to do anything to subdue us? Yes. But as I said, we just bought 85 million guns,” Badnarick said, a reference to the number of gun owners in America. “The question is, what are we willing to do for liberty?” he continued. “Dying for your country is not really the question. Are you willing to kill for liberty?”

Pennsylvania State Rep. Sam Rohrer, who earlier this year lost his primary bid to become the Republican candidate for governor, echoed his call. “There is a time to pray and a time to fight,” said Rohrer, paraphrasing Revolutionary War hero Pastor Peter Muhlenberg. “And I think the time has come to fight.”

Mack, who was featured twice at the conference — in person and in Gary Franchi’s new documentary “Don’t Tread on Me: Rise of the Republic” — warned from onscreen that if the federal government continues to ignore the constraints placed on it by the Constitution, “instead of throwing tea into the harbor, we’re going to be throwing politicians.”

Speakers were uniform in believing that the United States is headed for a catastrophe for which strengthened state sovereignty, won by words or by force, is the only antidote.

“The oligarchy our founding fathers feared, federalist and anti-federalist [alike], has taken over,” said Tom Cryer, famous in Patriot circles for beating charges of tax evasion.  “We’ve got to put this beast back in the box that it came in."

“We are in a defining moment,” he continued. “We are either going to be the generation that saved America from its government and its government from itself, or we’re going to be the generation that betrayed its ancestors and its posterity all at one time."
“Unite. Fight. Win.”   Source

NOTE:  Of one thing we may be sure, no matter which way the political pendulum swings, Bible prophecy will be fulfilled to the very letter.  "For yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry."  Hebrews 10:37.
