Our President is as enmeshed in this revolution as he is in the Arab Spring, which is seeing the rise of The Muslim Brotherhood. Obama continually divides us across class and racial lines. I refuse to buy into it and we all must. He has taken the weaknesses of our society, as he ignores its great strengths, to put forth an agenda that is now being seized by anarchists, socialists, communists, and the just plain certifiable. Anyone can demonize the Tea Party if they want, but they only do it because the Tea people threaten their agenda.
One does not have to be in the Tea Party, which is no party at all, to have a tea party state of mind, because it is no party at all. It is a vision comprised of freedom-loving Americans who remember what the United States was and can be. A United States which might never be again if we don’t pull this weed out by its roots. So, if you bought into the hype that the Tea Party is made up of evil racists and crazies, don’t join, but do love the vision of the United States as our Founding Fathers envisioned it and fight this revolution.
The following information is taken from two of the many sites proclaiming the onset of the “peaceful revolution.” I find it interesting that a Bill Moyer signed the horrifying pledge and I wonder if it could be journalist Bill Moyer. It could be. These revolutionaries, who are screaming, “Power to the People,” are advocating no less than the overthrow of our government. Their rally will take place on October 6th on Freedom Plaza, the new Tahrir Square, to quote the. When did it become popular to be an anarchist and a communist? When?

“October 2011 is the 10th anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan and the beginning of the 2012 federal austerity budget. It is time to light the spark that sets off a true democratic, nonviolent transition to a world in which people are freed to create just and sustainable solutions.
Stop the Machine! Create a New World!
A Call to Action – Oct. 6, 2011 and onward
October 2011 is the 10th anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan and the beginning of the 2012 federal austerity budget. It is time to light the spark that sets off a true democratic, nonviolent transition to a world in which people are freed to create just and sustainable solutions.
We call on people of conscience and courage—all who seek peace, economic justice, human rights and a healthy environment—to join together in Washington, D.C., beginning on Oct. 6, 2011, in nonviolent resistance similar to the Arab Spring and the Midwest awakening.
A concert, rally and protest will kick off a powerful and sustained nonviolent resistance to the corporate criminals that dominate our government.
Forty-seven years ago, Mario Savio, an activist student at Berkeley, said, “There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious—makes you so sick at heart—that you can’t take part. You can’t even passively take part. And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all.”
Those words have an even greater urgency today. We face ongoing wars and massive socio-economic and environmental destruction perpetrated by a corporate empire which is oppressing, occupying and exploiting the world. We are on a fast track to making the planet unlivable while the middle class and poor people of our country are undergoing the most wrenching and profound economic crisis in 80 years.
Take the Pledge
“I pledge that if any U.S. troops, contractors, or mercenaries remain in Afghanistan on Thursday, October 6, 2011, as that criminal occupation goes into its 11th year, I will commit to being in Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C., with others on that day with the intention of making it our Tahrir Square, Cairo, our Madison, Wisconsin, where we will nonviolently resist the corporate machine until our resources are invested in human needs and environmental protection instead of war and exploitation. We can do this together. We will be the beginning …”
