51. What can we do? We can stand and be true.
We can do everything we feel right about, everything our conscience will allow, to keep fighting Bushevik Tyranny, even if the cause is lost. It's no less than the Founding Fathers gave us when they won their revolution and gave us our Republic "if we can keep it".

It's no less than their memory deserves.

The point is to go down fighting, if we are to go down, and the point is never give up because striving against tyranny is one of our duties as human beings, I believe.

So many people here misunderstand me, thinking i am one of these people who get off on crying "woe betides us. We're doomed."

Actually, quite the opposite. I would give anything to be able to reasonably make a case that we aren't, at the very least, damned close to losing our liberty in every sense of the word.

But I can't. At least, and not be true to my own analysis of the evidence as well as that of my eyes and ears.

Most DUers don't know it, likely, because the instances are so rare, but I mark EVERY hopeful thing I come across with a happy or congratulatory post.

Really. They're all archived on DU servers with everything else I have ever posted.

I will NEVER give up fighting the Bushies, and all tyrannies over the mind of men, to paraphrase Tom Jefferson, my second favorite Founding Father.

I hope this clears some things up.
