Ever hear of the "Battle of Athens"? A history lesson.

I had heard of the 'Battle of Blaire's mountain', in West Virginia. That was union vs. coal companies.
Battle of Athens is more chilling......
Well worth the 13 1/2 minutes..

I have lived in Tennessee but had never heard of it.
The foresight of The Founders never ceases to amaze.
Free government is founded in jealousy, not confidence. It is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind those we are obliged to trust with power.... In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in men, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.
Thomas Jefferson, 1799

Very well said Bulldog,
MikeM,thanks for posting this,I never knew about this incident either.Fellas,I think this is a perfect example of what will be needed to restore our country.I believe this "War on Terrorism" is a crafted diversion to keep the American people's attention diverted while our freedom is stolen.I'm not saying incidences of terrorism against the US are not real but that the powers that be are using them to further an agenda to turn the US into a socialist state.I believe it could very well come down to taking up arms against our govt.
I'm putting together a "linkage" of recent events and news articles, when they are put together the whole picture is rather scary and hard to dismiss.

BUT, we can see what FEDERAL law enforcement agencies and their "jack-booted storm troopers" thought of WE, THE PEOPLE, and the Constitution long before 9/11. We must NEVER forget the slaughter of INNOCENT men, women, and children at Mt. Carmel and Ruby Ridge, the atrocities committed against legitimate, law-abiding gun owners by the FBI and the BATF, and how state and local law enforcement supported these acts.
The best indicator of what law enforcement thinks of WE, THE PEOPLE and the Constitution is that when the FBI and Homeland Security declared that "veterans, gun owners, CHRISTIANS, and ANYONE who disagrees with the policies of the current administration are to be considered "potential domestic terrorists", and NOT ONE, repeat, NOT ONE law enforcement agency disagreed.
It seems strange that law enforcement finds it easier to invent all sorts of 'crimes' and 'domestic terrorists', but does NOTHING about the sources of real terrorism, because such action is NOT politically correct.
Law enforcement has but one goal, which is the establishment of a police state, where they are in total control of the most trivial details of the lives of ALL American citizens. At t he top of the heap, with their hatred of the Constitution and the wisdom of the Founding Fathers are the FBI, BATF, a certain political party, and the elitists of the media, who, as our 'betters' will be part of the ruling elite.
Stock up NOW on guns and ammo, and prepare for an all out war, IF ...........
If WE, THE PEOPLE cannot defend the Constitution and the FREEDOM given us by the Founding Fathers, how can we be worthy of being an American?

What??????? Yea I'm a patriot......spent 20 years serving and a good deal of my health doing so. I've also read the Bible several times. Sorry can't buy into that.
Ive been trying to get my friends to read John Price's book; The End of America, Biblical warnings to leave America. I know everyone has theories, but I believe you all are true patriots and a lot of you are Bible believing Christians and would like to hear from you all as to what you think of this book and teachings. It is relavant to this topic. Hope this doesnt violate some rule somewhere..You can PM me if you would like.
I the willing,
have lead the unknowing,
to do the impossible,
for the uncaring.
I have done so much,
with so little,
for so long,
that I am now qualified to do anything!
