W/ Respect to Baltimore and Freddie Gray. Have you forgotten the origins of the US?

It seems that many, many people have forgotten that the USA was not founded by peaceful means. It was founded in a bloody war for independence from British rule. There was looting - think about the Tea Party in Boston Harbor. There were arms brought to bear against the oppression of the British troops and Monarchy - the police of that day.

Freedom is not free. It takes people willing to sacrifice to achieve and maintain freedom. It most often does not come quietly and with niceties.

Just as our founding fathers saw that the corruption and oppression of the British Monarchy had to be overthrown; now people are seeing that our police and our legal system no longer serve the average person. Both are tools of the elite, the monied, the powerful.

So there will be violence. That is the nature of things. If one but looks to history one will see that is true.

The only question that remains is "On which side will you throw in your lot?" Will you continue to live your comfortable life provided to you by the elite? Or will you admit things are really messed up in this country and need correction?
