View Full Version : The Battle of Oceanport NJ - Day 1

01-23-2008, 08:54 PM
Three (3) brave soldiers (Tiffany, Amanda, and Anthony) and I (James) took to the streets of Oceanport NJ tonight ( 07747 ) to fight on the side of the Ron Paul Revolution.

Armed with two-hundred and fifty (250) two (2) page handouts, we strategically timed our attack for the dinner time hours. Under the cover of darkness, we attacked the front doors of homes in this small New Jersey town with our flyers, sending the message of freedom directly to the steps of our neighbors, bringing the message into the homes.

After about an hour and half of battle in the cold January air, we were forced to retreat, for the supplies began to draw low and cold and fatigue set in on our brave forces.

We are currently in the process of re-arming ourselves with more weaponry, and knowing that the battles will only get tougher, and time before Feb 5 is dwindling rapidly, we hope to recruit more soldiers to help with our Revolution. We need soldiers willing to join us and take the battles to the street, not just in our neighborhoods, but in all neighborhoods. The time to talk among ourselves is long past, we must engage in battle. We must fight the Revolution in all towns. Form your own militias and start the attacks. You can not wait for a leader to arrive, you must take action yourselves.

If we wish to be free -- if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending -- if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!

They tell us, sir, that we are weak -- unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us.

The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable -- and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come!

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, "Peace! Peace!" -- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

In other words - get your carcass off of the chair, turn the computer off and hit the streets. We're out of time. Today may as well be Feb 5. If you want to see Ron Paul become President of these United States, and you want the Revolution to move beyond a wrinkle in time, YOU need to get moving. Print your flyers, get your friends and distribute them, door to door, on car windshields, on the sidewalk. We don't need anymore YouTube videos, we need to get the message that exists out, NOW. Blanket your own town with the message, trust that a brave soldier will blanket the town next to yours. If each of us blanket our own town(s), we'll have covered the entire country, quickly. Now get to work.
