Quite Troubling . . .

As the division heightens in the country, and martial law seems imminent, I'm a bit taken aback that there is actually a planned protest in Washington DC, by various militia groups.  I am absolutely PRO Bill of Rights, and I'm particularly fond of the first one, but this is very poor timing and seems to be truly poor planning.   The situation of Cliven Bundy in the headlines, and the reported standoff that led us to believe the BLM retreated, is troubling.  Why do we openly speak against the integrity of the mainstream media to report the truth, yet decide to believe something we want to hear?  Or choose to believe something we want to be angry about?

What if, and this is only a what if, the timing of the BLM invasion of the Bundy Ranch has something to do with this Operation American Spring 2014?  This BLM squabble with Bundy has gone on for over 20 years, so why the standoff now?  Of course, the media playing the race card calmed the coverage of the happenings at the ranch, and the open support of most conservative pundits.  I can't help but wonder if this was staged in its entirety?  Not the Bundy's comments or the militiamen that gathered, but the BLM moving in at gunpoint, only to give the impression that standing up to them would make them back down or send them running?  What if it was a set up to create a false sense of confidence for the Washington DC protest?  Is there anyone in this country that seriously believes our government is listening to the people?  

Another factor to consider in this Operation American Spring 2014 is the fact that everything that takes place in Washington DC is a federal matter.  There is no state or county jurisdiction, just federal law.  No sheriff to intervene!  With so many reports from alternative news sources about the stockpiling of ammunition by various government entities, I think it's time to consider where we truly stand as a nation.  All these folks calling themselves patriots, need to remember something about the Revolutionary War.  The King of England was across the big pond with a definite disadvantage and the founding fathers were not completely politically divided.

This may serve to be the place that corrals those who would be the biggest problem regarding gun control laws.  In all the organizational promotions, Phase 1 speaks of all those in attendance being unarmed.   This may be a naive statement, but I truly thought most militia members were armed at all times.  I thought militia men bore arms.  I'm certainly not trying to stir a pot here, but Phase 2 sounds as tyrannical as what they claim to be against.  As for Phase 3, I just hope it doesn't come to that.

It almost seems this Operation American Spring 2014 may be instrumental in ushering in the much dreaded martial law and the imposition of indefinite detentions.  There are only a few days left to give this some serious thought.  The situation at the Bundy ranch supposedly "ended" much better than it looked like it would.  The fact is, Harry Reid says it's NOT over.

For those who truly believe Operation American Spring 2014 is an act of patriotism, I think you should consider all the facts, before literally corralling yourselves to be surrounded.  The US has the largest military budget in the world.  One itchy trigger finger could cause anarchy . . .
