Some see, few know, many choose to wander aimlessly in a fog, devoid of sunlight. I seek the light of day and leave the others to their chosen realm of ignorance. They are the ones who have brought this great nation down. I write only for the benefit of those who possess the courage required to restore our birthright.

THE AMERICAN SPRING - CAUTION
This from Patriots For America...
Operation American Spring - Washington, D.c. in the cross-hairs - The Out - of - Control Government Leadership Must Be Stopped
The following is a condensed plan of action, taken from the above link, that was put forth by the founder of The American Spring, Harry Riley.
Mission: Restoration of Constitutional government, rule of law, freedom, liberty "of the people, for the people, by the people" from despotic and tyrannical federal leadership.
Other than the fact that Mister Riley misquoted Lincoln's "of the people, by the people, for the people"(Another trifle), so far that sounds good to me. Let us proceed.
Millions of Americans will participate.
Here we run into a snag. This is a very broad assumption. The greatest Tea Party gathering ever was less than a million people, but we can regard that reality as but another trifle. What is not a trifle however, is that a competent military leader never assumes anything. He will collect intelligence, comparing what he has with what he needs, he assesses the enemy's strength and lays out his strategy accordingly.
American veterans and patriots are energized to end the tyranny, lawlessness, and shredding of the US Constitution.
Government is not the target, it is sound: corrupt and criminal leadership must be removed.
Those in power will not hesitate to use force against unarmed patriots exercising their constitutional rights.
Patriots may be killed, wounded, incarcerated.
There is no hope given today's technology of secrecy for the effort nor do we want it secret.
Now here I have a serious problem with the plan. Again, speaking of competent military leaders: Such leaders will not take an unarmed force into harm's way knowing they may be killed or wounded. Whether through intent or oversight, such a scenario is a trigger for anarchy.
Concept of Operations:
Here is where the plan begins to fall apart...At the very beginning.
Phase 1 - Field millions, as many as ten million, patriots who will assemble in a non violent, physically unarmed (Spiritually and Constitutionally armed). display of unswerving loyalty to the US Constitution and against the incumbent government leadership, in Washington D.C. with the mission to bring down the existing leadership. Go full-bore, no looking back, steadfast in the mission.
Now that is an inspiring speech to give to ten million people hell bent on committing mass suicide. Ten million people armed only with their faith and the Constitution are quite simply no match for a company of dedicated Marines who have been told that the mob before them intends to overthrow the government. However let us be optimistic and assume that no shooting occurs...What comes next is probably worse than getting shot.
Phase 2: One million or more of the assembled 10 million must be prepared to stay in D.C. as long as it takes to see Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi, and Attorney General Holder removed from office.
He then goes on with the master plan of how our Progressive Congress is going to reorganize the government. This concept is equally fraught with danger as when you remove the head Progressives and Communists, what do you have to replace them with? A long line of Progressives and Communists. Such is the makeup of our Congress; were this not so we would not be in such a dire state of affairs.
I have no idea what function Mister Riley served in the military but I can assure you that he learned nothing of logistics. Ten million people have to have a place to park their millions of cars. Most would risk losing their employment taking a few weeks off to overthrow the government and one million or more would most assuredly become unemployed.
Now comes the fun part; a million aging conservatives camping out in tents and sleeping on the ground like the stumble bums of OCCUPY. Let us have a look at those American patriots he is calling upon to do this:
Mister Riley may well have served in the military but I can guarantee that those around him did not have white hair, arthritis, gout, and diabetes. Above you see some of this nation's finest Patriots, but I must question the character of a man who would ask them to sleep in tents until our oppressive leaders decide to step down?
Other than parking cars and finding a place to pitch a tent, let us examine the logistics of this bold venture. Has Mister Riley implemented the supply line of the thousands of trucks needed to bring in food every day for a million people, some of whom are on restricted diets due to health concerns? What about toilet facilities? What about showers? Has he provided for a quartermaster laundry to wash and press the clothing of his million strong army? Does he have MASH units ready to care for the sick and wounded?
I have sat here at my keyboard and pondered what Mister Riley's function was in the military. It most assuredly was not involving logistics, transportation, housing, medical, or providing food for the troops. Finally I thought that I had figured out his Military Occupational Specialty, the only thing I felt he was qualified for ... Latrine duty. Nope, ruled that one out too. He has forgotten that ten million people are going to need a lot of porta potties. Oh well, another trifle.
On to the next phase of his plan...
Phase 3 - Those with the 'principles' of a West, Cruz, Dr. Ben Carson, Lee, DeMint, Paul, Gov. Walker, Sessions, Gowdy, Jordan, will comprise a tribunal and assume positions of authority to convene investigations, recommend appropriate charges against politicians and government employees to the new U.S. Attorney General appointed by the new President.
Now we are getting to specifics and I like it that way but...While Mister Riley is very specific about those that he endorses, none seem to have returned the gesture. Actually he seems to be at his best on his own website, as well as various birther and truther sites.
I could go on and on but there is no need. I cannot help but regard this man's agenda to be no more than some serious wishful thinking, and if you will allow me to be a little less than polite: It is sheer lunacy!
However, as they say, there is a silver lining behind every cloud. There is something to be learned in the popularity of his ill founded plan of action. Americans are terrified of what is taking place in our nation's capitol. They are so terrified that they are grasping at straws, and believe me, The American Spring is no more than a straw.
To those terrified Americans I say this. Look before you leap. If you have heard of The American Spring then you are on the internet and have before you the most powerful investigative tool ever conceived by the mind of man. Use it. Find the truth, but let me assure this: Those hoax websites, those sensationalist websites, and the people who run them, have an agenda and it has nothing to do with delivering the truth.
