The Second Declaration of Indepencence

What now? Time for cannons?

I was watching Glen Beck and Bill O'Rielly the other night on the factor and Glen mentioned a chat that he had with one of his fans during one of his road trips.

After Glen had made his speech about the need for folks to get into action, this fan of his stood up and said, "Glen, we have written many a letter and have made our strong protests to our elected officials to no avail, what do we do next? What can we do now?"

This is the crux of the problem, our elected officials do not and will not listen to our protests because it is not in their present interests to listen no matter how serious our efforts or the mass of folks concerned.

What springs to mind is the part in the movie "The Alamo" where Travis simply answers the Mexican generals demands for surrender with the blast of a cannon. Got his immediate attention and made his point crystal clear.

Do we need to dress up in colonial costume and drag an old independence war cannon up to the front door of the White House and blow the doors off in order to get someones undivided attention?
