There is one thing the American Indians, the participants in the Boston Tea Party, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Junior had in common. They all participated in civil disobedience when the government violated their rights. Second, they were right to do so. Third, they made a difference even if only to go down in history as doing the right thing.
Our allegiance is to the Constitution of the United States, not to a political party, a President or the US Supreme Court. When anyone, including politicians, the President or the US Supreme Court violates the Constitution they should be held accountable. We, the people, have no obligation to follow rules, regulations or laws pasted by anyone or any group that violate the Constitution of the United States. Rather, we have an obligation to protest and overthrow both the unconstitutional laws and the law-makers who violated the Constitution by passing laws in conflict with our Constitution.
I hope we will do that so we can keep the Happy in the Happy in the Fourth of July. How is that done? Voting? No! Too late. Most of our elected officials will not stand up for our Constitution or even read it. Most politicians who do read it are too stupid to understand it or too Benedict Arnold too adhere to it. This process starts with the statement, "We are mad and we are not going to take it any more!" First, get mad. Then refuse to obey unconstitutional laws no matter the cost. Be a hero, not a zero. We are all going to die anyway and leave all our possessions behind. We might as well swing away. There is nothing to lose that we will not lose eventually. Protest in every way you can find to do so. Civil disobedience frightens the cowards in Washington DC; always has - always will.
