The British captured five signers during the war. Edward Rutledge, Thomas Heyward, and Arthur Middleton were captured at the Battle of Charleston in 1780. George Walton was wounded and captured at the Battle of Savannah. Richard Stockton of New Jersey never recovered from his incarceration at the hands of British Loyalists. He died in 1781.

Thomas McKean of Delaware wrote John Adams that he was "hunted like a fox by the enemy — compelled to remove my family five times in a few months …". Abraham Clark of New Jersey had two of his sons captured by the British during the war.

Eleven signers had their homes and property destroyed. Francis Lewis's New York home was razed and his wife taken prisoner. John Hart's farm and mills were destroyed when the British invaded New Jersey, and he died while fleeing capture. Carter Braxton and Nelson, both of Virginia, lent large sums of their personal fortunes to support the war effort but were never repaid.

Man, I hope you're wrong about that. Not because I doubt your sincerity, or that I think you're wrong about the shot, but because I'm still praying for a peaceful resolution.

The "peaceful" part is completely up to you. It all depends on how many of your rights you're willing to give up with no resistance.

I’m saying no until they kill me, then, we’ll call it a draw. I’ll give up everything. I’ve been ready to pledge my meager fortune and sacred honor since 2008.

Standing in the middle of his living room. Watching a gang or burglars clean his house and raping his daughter. But he is a good heart, guys. He is hoping for a peaceful resolution. 🤦

When I see you on the news killing commies you'll have a right to talk like that.

I think we are all really really angry. And no leadership to direct our anger. So infighting is predictable. Obviously, everyone prefers peaceful resolution, control, convenience... But honesty has to be enforced, thieves don't just return stolen merch and check in to prison.

All true. But it's also true that no one really wins a hot civil war, It's just whoever is left. There are still avenues that accomplish our goals and still avoid needless bloodshed. All I'm advocating is pursuing those until we can't.

I feel like Mel Gibson in The Patriot sometimes (less badass, but you know what I mean)

Your children will see war with their own eyes in your front yard, etc, etc.

No. You fags live under a coup. A landslide win stolen and taken from you. And you fight the stupid jab. Like fucking morons.

Yall are like the cat running after the laser light. Thinking you will win.

You are fighting a fabricated nothing fight. Instead of the real fight.

Yall are low IQ idiots. Like the cat owner holding the laser. The world communist revolution are keeping you busy with "big bad jab mandates".

No wonder Leftists think you are dumb hillbillys.

Only a fool believes war has one face. War has many faces: proxy forces, political subversion, economic coercion, information operations, and lawfare, etc.

No, crossing the rubicon of violent resistance would be similar to signing the Declaration of Independence. Not getting the vaccine and getting fired is not going to change anything for anybody.

You and Sun Tzu wouldn't have gotten along very well.

LAnderson 1 point ago +1 / -0

Sun Tzu wrote a book on war... The real kind of war where you killed your enemy, not the kind where you file for a religious exemption to a vaccine and post snarky memes online.

lol. No. In fact, he told you how to do everything you could to avoid war....

“The supreme art of war is to subdue your enemy without fighting..”

Seems like our enemy has read art of war and we haven’t.

  1. Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting. 2. Baulk the enemy's plans. 3. Then prevent the junction of the enemy's forces. 4. Next attack the enemy's army in the field.

The first three laws are how to fight without actually fighting. Breaking the enemy's will by just saying no is No. 2.

LAnderson 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yes... subdue your enemy without fighting. This is exactly what our enemy just accomplished.

You're admitting that you're already beaten.
