Roused to Action Yet?

Sad how with all the news about the government openly spying on everyone (call it what you want to sugar coat it - it's still spying, and still ILLEGAL), not more people seem to be mad enough to rise up and hold people accountable.

Are we that scared a a nation?

Those of us who've been watching these things for a while have been warning about this for a long time. We've been called crazy, paranoid, et cetera. But now it's happening, and we're vindicated. But still, people go "meh", and move along with their toys and distractions.

Adam Kokesh was going to directly challenge DC on the Second Amendment with a peaceful open carry march. But that's not happening now...why, I don't fully know. But many people in the Liberty "movement" keep saying the time for action is coming. Only a handful are saying now is the time.

What I want to know is this - if now isn't the time to act, because we're REALLY close to a total state, when is it?

Will you stand up when social media is strictly censored?
No? Will you stand up when you're being searched on the street, or at random police stops?
No? Will you stand up when the government finally comes for the guns?
No? Will you stand up when they come to relocate you to a camp, "for your own good", of course?
No? Will you stand up when you're not allowed out?
No? Will you stand up when you're given a shovel and told to dig a hole in the ground?
No? Will you stand up when they tell you to get into that hole?
No? Will you stand up when the gun is to your head?

Where's the line? Standing up doesn't have to mean violence yet. Want to do it now, or do you want to wait until it's the only choice?

I don't claim to have all the answers. But rising up in large numbers and doing things like street protesting, or not obeying unjust laws is a start. Do it in numbers and overwhelm their ability to enforce. Civil disobedience isn't dead as an option. During Prohibition, it was done en masse and while the enforcers nailed a few people, by and large the ban on alcohol was ignored. And it was eventually defeated.

Why can't this work with other things? Why can't getting angry in large numbers scare the government and stop this before it gets out of control?

The time do act isn't later. It's always been now. Don't wait. Not exercising your rights is like not exercising your body. If you don't do it, you'll lose it.
