movies are WWII yarns with a similar theme; passive resistance and civil
The spirit of resistance to oppressive laws and government has a long and
distinguished history. One of the best known resistance movements - and
arguably the longest lived one - is Christianity. Quite possibly the second
(first to some) best known proponent of civil disobedience was Mahatma
Ghandi2. In this country, Martin Luther King Jr. was a major proponent of
civil disobedience during the civil rights fight of the 60s.
Whenever a government becomes oppressive with its taxation, legal
restrictions, regulations or anything else that erodes the freedoms of the
people under their rule, some people will resist. The greater the oppression,
the greater the resistance. Many people - myself included - feel that the time
has once again come for some good new civil disobedience again in the good
old US of A.
Take Obamacare. How can you resist that? Just don't sign up until you
get sick. The fine3 will cost you a whole lot less than the insurance.
Then there's all the talk about screwing you out of your second
amendment rights. Go out now to a gun show near you and buy all the AR15s
and AK47s that you can afford. Under no circumstances should you register
them. Buy them from a private party so you don't go through a background

are afraid of retaliation or just don't have the time, take some pictures, print
up some fliers and plaster your neighborhood with them to let everybody
know who is helping Americans lose jobs and waste your hard-earned tax
Barter. Trade work for goods and services whenever you can. There's no
way for the IRS to trace that so you won't get taxed on the fruits of your
labor. Don't get me wrong; Big Brother wants his cut6. He just has no way of
finding out what you did, unless you tell him.
If you live in a medical-marijuana state, get a card and tell everybody
you know to do the same thing.
Write LOTS of letters to your congresspeople7. Believe it or not,
politicians do read the letters they get. They all want to get re-elected so they
need to know what their constituents are thinking.
And the biggest civil disobedience move you can make? VOTE!!!
At least that's my opinion. What's yours?
