I’m beginning to sense an undercurrent in the country. Something running beneath the surface, gathering energy and strength.
Not long ago it was simply a voice in the wilderness.
And then, there it was, sticking it’s head out of the water: Jury Acquits Leaders Of Oregon Standoff On All Federal Charges. A victory as unexpected as it was astounding. An Oregon (PORTLAND!) jury acquitted the leaders of the armed standoff at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge of all Federal charges. It was so surprising that even the defense attorneys couldn’t believe it.
“It's stunning. It's a stunning victory for the defense,” said Robert Salisbury, attorney for defendant Jeff Banta. “I'm speechless.”
Could it be that even ordinary, progressive Americans are getting tired of that boot on their face?
Could it be that somewhere far below the media-manufactured smooth surface
is a turbulence that runs so deep and so strong that it is likely to break out with great force some day?
I suggest we all light one candle and pray that day is November 8th.
