New warriors ....the same old war...

Imagine if you will......

Dear Mom and Dad, June , 2021

The rain is beginning to end and as I look out from the door of this old barn I wonder , how long will this civil war last ........eight years now ! Who would ever have imagined another civil war in America ......But then ..will it even be called America when its over ? I tell myself to stop this line of thought , there's only so much you can do or change by constantly thinking about what you have no control over .But , as I look around at the other soldiers some of them still sleeping I wonder , what will any of this change in our future. Slowly each one of them awakens to his own day and as we have to keep moving these days to keep from being detected , we must go quickly to another hiding place . Our own government has sent out its own armed helicopters to seek us out and once in awhile they find us . I have heard through the rumor mill that Canada is sending troops to help "detect and destroy " us as well. And that the power grids are about to be reopened giving the government back its communication systems .
For the first three years the feds were winning , until the uprisings of the summer of 2017 , where we finally got an upper hand on our guerrilla attacks against the power systems , the rail systems and highway bridges. I have heard that there are talks going on constantly in Washington between the European mediators , the Russians and our government leaders , I am wondering if our own leaders are there too. Is it time for a treaty , can we reclaim our voting rights as Americans , will the Russians send troops into the hills to aid the U.S . troops? So many unknown answers........

As I begin to load up our weapons onto the horses , I am reminded of an old movie " The Postman".....I think Kevin Costner played in it . I don't understand how we have fallen so far back in time in this country , horses to fight a" uncivil "war , as I stand back and take a look at the horse and the things I've been carrying for months now it surprises me all at once , RPG rocket launchers and bridles , grain sacks a grenades , water buckets and napalm canisters ..........I am reminded of the movie line "Let loose the dogs of war ", ........and as the line of horses and riders spreads out through the forest I think back to a day when 'peace' was here and everywhere , today my 'piece' is a brand new submachine gun.
Today we are going to attack the fuel tanks in the port city storage yards , and if we can the pipeline itself , I must be off now , I'll write more when I can , if you see my brothers and wife , tell them I love and miss them alot . You probably won't hear from me in a few weeks there is some talk that suggests we will be going over the Canadian border until things quiet down around here a little , seems we've been making a little too much noise lately. Oh, by the way if you see the Wilsons tell them I'm sorry to hear about thier son , he was a good soldier ! And a great horseman , and he died a true hero , I hear that he was about to be promoted to squad leader ......its too bad he was there at the time the British troops arrived , until then we were winning the fight in Boston........

Anyway I will write when I can . your loving son !

P.S.
By the way all of our "last letter" to come home home will be in a blue envelope , Mine is already written .I just hope it never gets to you.

I thought this was a stunning (and also slightly shocking) piece of well-imangined fiction. You really can write!

The quote is: "Cry "havoc" and let slip the dogs of war." From Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Act III. I had to look in my Bartlett's to get it right. I know it was used in a couple of movies as well, sloppily.

One of hubber once showed me 2 chapters of book he still working on right at the moment and it is about civil war. The year is 2018 ( if my memory served me well ) and USA has turn into war zone. It is government against citizen and no matter who Will win it, dream land is no longer exist.

So I guess the treath is somehow real?

My friends and I have been joking a lot lately,"The South won't have to rise again, the North will fall." That horse won't do you much good around here. They do alright in the scrub, if they don't break a leg, but they hate the swamps.

The military is one thing . . . the militia is another.

I hate war. It's give nothing but misery. Will it ever ended from happening in here and there?

One of Hubber believe if USA gov keep this attitude of theirs, civil war will be happening soon.

It seems you have similar concern.

This hub is sad but the sadness is indeed necessary to remind others about nearest threat and hopefully will make people choose their action wisely

This made me throat tight and my stomach clench. It is a close reality for America and so many are oblivious. Of course knowing men are fighting and dying anywhere, anytime makes one weep. Well written friend. Oh ahorseback, I long for the day Jesus returns and we all can live the way He planned it from the beginning.

Hello Freya my beautiful friend. I don't believe America is going anywhere ! No nor will there be a "war "within our borders! But America has a history of being in flux , constant change . Evolving constantly . We have become lazy in our responsibilities in the voting booth, in our civic responsibilities and let our representitives take control of our future! That will change , and America will come out a stronger and better nation!...Huggs for my beautiful Muslim Daughter!..:-}Its nice to see you here.

Sorry . . . I got caught up in the moment. You provoked me with the emotion in the story. Like I said, we are joking. We are indebted to people from up north. Otherwise, how would we know that, "You can't get good pizza down here."

I'm all for taking the country back, but we have to do it soon and decisively. It is impossible to recover from the robbery of the treasury x 2, the centralization of the banking system by the FDIC, and the mass off-shoring of industry and services, legalization of organized crime by financial deregulation.

The death blow has already been dealt. We are just running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. If we expect to recover, radical surgery is a necessity. We need a new head.

I'm afraid we haven't learned yet, I watched the Republican debate. We have to walk away from those two parties and let my Independents have a go. We need to boycott instead of running down to Walmart like lemmings.
