What is that spirit that we want to connect to … that spirit of rebellion? The spirit of resistance ... the spirit of insurgency! It’s that spirit we should be talking about.

    This is a good one , gives a little insight on how our country has been infiltrated from the inside.

    Take those same words, isolate them from the original context and apply them now. Imagine the same words spoken by us or, say, Ron Paul. Not so far off what is needed, just not in the way that Ayers originally intended. We folks that believe in the freedoms of the Constitution have to think along those lines. Not yet an insurgency, but unintended consequences could yet come along if things go the way they might. The difference between an insurgent (rebel, if you will) and a patriot is in the point of view.

    I agree, but most folks can't seem to abstract themselves from the world of black andwhite( we good; thembad) enough to see it that way
