The unavoidable progression of events

First, there was Liberty.

And then, for the next few generations of Americans, there was the experience of human progress and prosperity the likes of which the world had never seen - and likely will never see again.

Then there were the depredations, visited by a government on its people. Careful at first to maintain the facade - the illusion - of representative government, now increasingly and arrogantly flaunting it's power and utter disdain for the rule of law.

Then came the anger, the righteous anger, of a people betrayed by their own leaders. Revocation of consent to govern, by the governed, is a course of action best saved for when all else fails. But sometimes, it is forced upon the people as the ONLY course.

Then comes resistance. Increasingly stiff resistance.

Pray for the Republic - such of it that remains.
