Feel like the other political parties care more about getting elected than representing your interests? Feel like the Tea party has been co-opted by the old guard

Then join the Molotov Cocktail Party today! We don't even have any candidates.

Government, in my humble opinion, should be formed to secure and to enlarge the exercise of the natural rights of its members; and every government, which has not this in view, as its principal object, is not a government of the legitimate kind.

I have no Gandhi quote to dispute that, nor would I intend to do so, myself, as Justice Wilson makes some very good sense here.

However, you've wandered from your party platform. I have to wonder what the chances are that you're going to form a government with this, alone, as its principal object when its citizens are expressing their will through improvised incendiary weapons.

It'll be a government that damn well listens to it's citizens. Past that, I cannot predict.

Because that is how you solve problems Occam.
'Ares urged on the Trojans,
while bright-eyed Athena kept rousing the Achaeans.
With them came Terror, Fear, and tireless Strife,
sister and companion of man-destroying Ares—
at first small in stature, she later grows enormous,
head reaching heaven, as she strides across the earth.
Strife went through crowds of soldiers, casting hatred
on both sides equally, multiplying human miseries.' - Homer, Iliad 4.440

'Don't get all :facepalm: with me,...' - Benkei

That is how you solve problems, Chris. At least, certain problems are solved that way.

It was violence that brought you this country and the Constitution. Terror, rioting, and war were the things that secured our liberty. Remember, the Sons of Liberty were fucking terrorists. Tarring and feathering was extremely brutal, and it killed people. British officials were lynched. Property was vandalized. People were fucking murdered. I don't advocate these methods for solving our modern problems, but I suggest you study a bit more on how our country was founded, brutality and barbarism were the forces that created this country.

You suggest that violence doesn't solve anything, and usually it doesn't, but it does have its place. If our ancestors were unwilling to resort to unsavory tactics, this country would have never existed.
"No man grows rich by kindness."-Jorah Mormont

"True heroism is you, alone, in a designated workspace. True heroism is minutes, hours, days, year upon year of the quiet, precise, judicious exercise of probity and care, with no one there to see or cheer." The Pale King, by D. F. Wallace.

Gee whiz. I guess I should pick up a book. I didn't realize that violence existed in the 18th century.

Well, if brutality and barbarism are the founding principles that should be running through my American veins, I suppose I've got a whole new way to deal with frustration, change and anger in life.
