Now is the Time

While the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, the American revolutionary army lost virtually all of its battles with British troops over the next couple of months. Without a military victory, the Declaration would have been just a worthless piece of paper, and its authors would have been hanged for treason.

Indeed, by late 1776, with thousands of American troops taken prisoner, substantial guns and artillery lost, and a large proportion of the American army sick, shirtless, and even shoeless, many thought the war was lost. Part of the problem was that George Washington had been indecisive in several battles, and moved too slowly when action was required.

Because they faced imminent defeat due to the weak state of the army and the overwhelming British military superiority, General Washington concluded that only a "bold" move could save the American struggle for independence.

So in the dead of winter in 1776, Washington led his troops on a high-stakes gamble to confront the highly-trained Hessian troops (German mercenaries working for the British) in Trenton, New Jersey. Before starting the assault, Washington declared "Now is the time . . . ."

Marching many miles in blizzards with bare feet, Washington's troops captured the Hessians and turned the tide of the war. With this one, bold move, Washington rallied the spirits of the entire patriotic American population, and even captured the admiration and support of foreign countries for the revolutionary cause.

Today, the Administration and its allies constitute the new empire. Our basic freedoms and liberties are under attack by an administration pushing to consolidate dictatorial powers and to plunge us into global war. While the internet has allowed us to get the word out about what's really happening, the net is under sustained attack by the Pentagon, mainstream media, cable companies, and politicians. And anti-war protestors or anyone else who speaks out against the Administration's policies are being criticized if not harassed by modern-day brownshirts and thugs.

Moreover, with plans apparently under way for another false flag attack in the U.S., and a nuclear attack on Iran, the situation is indeed dire.

When Will We Be Stronger?

Its easy to kill a monster while its small. Its very hard to get rid of the darn thing once its full-grown.

Similarly, it would have been easy to boot Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the other rascals out of office right after they carried out 9/11, stole elections, authorized torture and domestic spying, and started dismantling the Constitution.

But now the monster of imperial dictatorship has gotten bigger, its tentacles have entwined themselves in more of our formerly-democratic institutions, and its become a little bit harder to get rid of it.

Should we despair that its too late? Should we whine and give up hope?

Well, about a month before the American Revolutionary War, Patrick Henry said:

“They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year?”

If not now, when? Like Patrick Henry asked, when will we be stronger?

The monster of imperial repression is only going to get bigger. This is the last chance for democracy and freedom.

We missed the chance to kill the monster when it was still small. Let's act before it gets much bigger.

Now Is The Time

Our cause -- truth and justice, and the exposure of the age-old secret history of false-flag terrorism to control populations and justify empire -- is a righteous one, like the American revolutionary war. But we are becoming shoeless (metaphorically), as we are losing our basic rights to free speech, our internet freedoms are under attack, our votes are no longer counted, and our letters to a sold-out congress now go straight into the wastebasket. We are facing a vastly wealthier enemy, armed with the best propaganda money can buy, in control of the entire mainstream media, and unconstrained by all normal rules of civility, truth, or even sanity.

While the odds of preventing another 9-11 style false flag attack and world war may seem slim, a bold move by dedicated patriots can turn the tide, awaken people from their slumbers, and change the momentum towards truth and justice.

This time, the bold move will not be a military one, but an intellectual one. We have to win the battle for the hearts and minds of the American public in order to turn the tide. We are in an "information war" with the forces of empire and oppression. Its truth versus deceit, news versus psyops (psychological operations). Its a battle for hearts and minds.

Now is the time for a bold move.

We each have our own skills: computers, art, writing, music, pranks, debate, etc. (and for the religious and spiritual, we have faith and prayer, although we need to match our inner work with outer works.)

For everyone who has thought of a great idea for winning the battle for truth and justice, for preventing further terrorist attacks by our own government, for exposing the lies, torture, and crimes of the administration, it is now the 11th hour, and there is no time to waste. We need a bold move to turn the tide and capture the imagination of all Americans and, indeed, of the world. Its time for all whistleblowers to come forward -- speak now or you will go to your grave with regret. It is now or never.

"Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it" -Goethe. Let's dream that truth, justice and freedom will prevail. Let's act boldly and make it happen.

If George Washington's ragtag army could do it, so can we.

I am NOT using word "kill" literally, and I do not advocate violence of any kind against any person.

Nor am I calling for the overthrow of the government. In fact, I am calling for the reinstatement of our government. I am calling for an end to lawless dictatorship and a return to the rule of law. Rather than trying to subvert the constitution, I am calling for its enforcement. Do you disagree with these goals? If so, then YOU are anti-American.

Thanks for the rallying cry. We need to gird our loins, so to speak, because I think the SHTF is right around the corner. I also think your avoidance of violence might be challenged in the near future, unfortunately.

The Battle of Trenton was in December, Christmas Day to be exact, not in November. Enlistments were to expire on the 31st.

Princeton was the follow up and they won that too.

Who are you ? Your writing is compelling. I have linked your blog to mine but I think you should forget about the war of independence and remember that America came to the aid of Britain when she stood alone in Europe against the Third Reich. Some of us would like to help you defeat the Fourth Reich - if you will let us .

There's a free, online novel about a future revolution staged using anonymous networking technology. It is called 'Revolution 2.0.'

You can read it at:

(By the way, this is NOT a commercial message. The author wrote 'Revolution 2.0' as political commentary and educational exercise, and published it for free.)

Umm, excuse me. The time to bytchslap gub-na bush was when he raped america in the 2000 elections. Noone stood up to him then when he brownshirted those democratic counties in Florida. So he took the ball and ran with it. Evil is always looking for an opening.

and let me add, this country is guilty of what happened to the minorities in Florida in 2000. Gore is guilty, the whole Democratic Party is guilty. Shame on you all. Six or seven years of pure impotence and pitifulness, you deserve it all because you imposed the same humiliation on the HUMAN BEINGS of Miami Dade County and others and didn't even respect the fact that they are members of your same political party and are US CITIZENS. Now thousands of deaths later because of GUB-NA DUMBYA's malgeasance treachery and incompetence in Katrina, Iraq, 911, and Lord knows what else, you declare that "NOW IS THE TIME"!

please, just wait until the assraping is finished. It'll be over soon.
