When government fails...

"The next 'shot heard round the world' may be fired in Texas."
"When government fails, the people will rise. If we hope to remain a sovereign nation under a President who has abandoned the rule of law, we seem to have no other choice." - Bob Owens at Bearing Arms
We seem to have lost our representation in Washington, as Congress fails to intervene in President Obama's deeper and wider grab at executive power. And at times, the Congress, acting with slight of hand, seems intent on making moves that only enhance the president's position.

Didn't turn out so well for government the last time a lack of representation became an issue that aroused the American people.
"Sir, we have done everything that could be done, to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope." - Patrick Henry, St. John's Church, March 23, 1775
