    Not gonna happen now. One side is too isolated, spoiled by an easy life, happily contented, the other is well organized and has the instruments of communication in their control.
    While an isolated individual on our side may step up, he’ll be instantly branded as a vile kook rather than a patriot.
    It’s going to take something really huge and imminently threatening to rally a critical mass to re-enact Lexington and Concord. The Left learned long ago not to do that, but rather nibble away, three steps forward, two steps back, but ever forward.

    It had been a few years since I read the whole poem.
    It’s well worth your time. Goosebumps all over again.
