Not Losing to Fear in the Fight to Restore the Republic
I once heard FDR say "the only thing that we have to fear, is fear itself". Today the only thing the government can offer is fear itself to get their way; If we allow the tyrants to use fear tactics to keep people in line. Do not say anything or do anything so we do not make them mad will not save us. We will self censor ourselves and allow the despotic politicians to win. We cannot allow fear to drive our actions.
Fear can make us die a thousand deaths because we know what we need to do, but we are afraid of the blow back that will occur if we make a stand. We cannot be afraid of the consequences, not can we fear out own death. We cannot be afraid if we are swept up and taken away. We cannot be afraid of what the government will do to us. Fear more what will happen if we do not act. Yes, standing up to tyranny is a dangerous job, but life will be dangerous allowing it to happen. This is the time good men stand up.
Edmund Burke said" Evil triumphs when good men do nothing.
Alexander Solzhenitsyn said his famous quote when they hesitated in fear when the secret police came out to do mass arrests he stated:
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
Are we going to allow what happened in Russia under the red terror happen here? I am not going to allow it. We have no choice but to defend the honor of our families, friends and our beloved republic. We cannot afford to be afraid anymore. There is sign of hope that people are starting to lose to fear, and now starting to see anger starting to boil over. We are Americans who have nothing lose anymore. We must not lose our dignity allowing fear to dictate our life as a people and an nation. Do we live in fear or will we start showing courage?
