Reader comments about this quote:
Hmmm...I will never be hoisting any black flags, or slitting any throats...but I get the idea. I just liked the way Washington put it better. "God forbid we should go twenty years without a revolution"

    Tempted? You bet. But resistance to unlawful dictates must include something other than violence -- that is exactly what they want. BUT real restoration of the republic will not happen via Congress, the president, or the Courts -- the States have to reassert their sovereignty. The pressure must come from the States. Love the sentiment of the quote, though. 'There will be blood.'

    Well, most normal individuals anyway - abnormal one's too
