Believe it or not, Lowbeyond, it seems that we're much more in agreement than not. The major points of contention seems to be the specific people-group most responsible for the troubles of ordinary folk, and the immediate course of action to take.|
Why maybe i should write a letter, or vote ! That will change things ! Sorry the corruption and attitude by the uniformed thieves is systematic. Nothing will change until they are stripped of their power or dead. Since the second also gives the first, that seems to be the most efficient and thus the preferred choice
In essense, your argument seems to be "it's more expedient to kill the cops". I don't disagree with the conclusion, but with the idea that the most expedient path is the one to take.
Cops do what their bosses tell them to do. Cop bosses are often hired by city councils. City councils are funded by federal and State governments. Politicians in federal, State, and local governments are elected by people.
As unpleasant as it may be, the root of the problem seems to be with We the People. Until we assert responsibility for our own selves, the lack of responsibility being the root of the problem, how can attacking a branch (and while very visible, a small branch far away from the root) of the problem solve anything?
Now, if there is a direct criminal act being committed or threatened by any government agent, by definition, that agent is a criminal. I've repeatedly posted here that even our governments recognize the legitimacy of self-defense against criminal government actors, often by referring to the court case of Bad Elk vs United States.
