When is it time for Civil Disobedience?

When the president picks and chooses which laws he implements and which laws he ignores, it’s time for civil disobedience.

When government agencies target people and groups deemed as enemies of the administration, and then when those same government agents refuse to cooperate when our elected representatives investigate, it’s time for civil disobedience.

When our government teeters on the verge of bankruptcy due to unprecedented spending of our money and when the government has incurred a debt that jeopardizes our future, it’s time for civil disobedience.

People throughout history have engaged in acts of civil disobedience when
governments forget their place and become oppressive.

Passover reminds us that Moses stood up to the oppressive power of Pharaoh and Easter reminds us that Jesus stood up to Pontius Pilate. When Pilate, who represented the secular power of Rome, asked Jesus where he derived his authority, Jesus answered: My Kingdom is not of this realm.

Thomas Jefferson echoed this principle in the Declaration of Independence when he wrote of unalienable rights that are endowed by the Creator and not by the state.
History is replete with brave and spirited people who, by force of their personal courage and character, changed Governments and struck blows for freedom for all of us.

Mahatma Ghandi peaceably drove the British out of India, Ronald Reagan told Mr. Gorbechev to tear down the wall and a brave group of East Germans marched in their famous Monday demonstrations, which sparked the end of Communism in Eastern Europe.
The Boston Tea Party, America’s most famous act of civil disobedience, marked what would be the end of the British tyranny. Susan B. Anthony  was arrested for voting in the United States House of Representatives elections, 1872, protesting female disenfranchisement

The dreamer, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, James Bevel, Rosa Parks, and others in the American Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s engaged in civil disobedience. Rosa Parks refused to move on the bus when a white man tried to take her seat. Although 15-year old Claudette Colvin had done the same thing nine months earlier, Parks' action led to the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

Cliven Bundy is such a hero and his story of courage will be taught to children in the future who will sing his praises.

Named a domestic terrorist by the hayseed Harry Reed (to be a terrorist you must kill many people) he is quickly becoming the central figure for all who believe in freedom and who oppose an oppressive government that has forgotten its place.

His action of civil disobedience is already bearing fruit as elected representatives from six western states, both Democratic and Republican, have now gotten together to discuss re-asserting state sovereignty over the millions of acres of their state land now needlessly held by the Federal Government.

Don’t forget, all that Hitler did was lawful. They changed the law and then acted within it.

Don't forget, in the last 100 years we’ve had many insane Governments that have oppressed, tortured and murdered millions of their own people.
