What shall we do about it? Write our congressman? Vote the bums out? Voice our opinions to any and all who will listen?
I've done all those things about matters of liberty, constitutional issues, etc. It doesn't matter to those who wish to take what is not theirs.
What's left to do? Write more letters? I hear some say we should take up arms against our aggressors if need be. I don't think it's come to that...yet. Or we could run and hide and say it was a nice little country we had for awhile.
Maybe, but I hope not.
I'm sure open to opinions.
