Are Conservatives Getting Set To Start A Civil War?

I don't believe that the average conservative wants to start a civil war. However, we will uphold the U.S. Constitution, which upholds the truths found in the Declaration of Independence. (For info on the U.S. Constitution, see here: http://www.debrajmsmith.com/usframe.html)

The Declaration of Independence states:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness--that to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

England was treating the colonists as slaves, working for the king of England. He had first dibs on anything they made and purchased, and the colonists were not being represented, in anyway to stop the king's thievery. Does this sound familiar? If you really believe that our government, today, adequately represents us, go fill up your gas tank!

Most of Americans are being taxed into bankruptcy. We are being severely taxed on our gas for our cars, our gas for our homes, our electric, our phones, our cell phones, our health insurance, our property, our homes, our water, our clothing, our household goods, most everything we purchase; and the government is seeking to add a tax on our car mileage and quite literally the air we breath! There are the fees we have to pay; building permits fees, business license fees, driving license fees, hunting license fees; we cannot even catch a fish without paying our government a fee in this country! Worse than anything, is that we cannot earn a dog-gone living without having to pay our country INCOME TAXES!  I could go on and on here, but my point is clearly made. Our government is out of control.

When our founding fathers declared our independence from England, it was England that began the war. Many do not realize this fact. Think about it. The war was fought on our soil. English soldiers came over here. We revolted, they, then attacked us. And that is what most likely will happen here, some day, if we cannot turn our government around without a revolt.

The liberal government's "equality" is the conservative citizen's loss of freedom. The liberal government wants to redistribute wealth, so that everyone has equal. That is socialism. That is "Freedom Lost." I cannot believe we ever let it get as far as it has already gotten!

"How long till conservatives do as our founding fathers did and stop allowing our current government's destruction of our people?" What have we got, if freedom is lost? Nothing!

Though, I do not believe conservatives will begin a civil war; I do believe that conservatives will one day say, "Enough," and revolt. I believe it will be in the form of not paying taxes and then protecting our homes, from government invasions and arrests that the government would seek.

If a war comes to be, it will not be the conservatives who start the war. It will be the conservatives who revolt. It will be the liberal government that fires the first shots.
