“When There is Nothing Else to Give Except to Sacrifice Our Lives to Defend Our Freedoms”
There’s a huge storm coming to the United States, and it’s more dangerous than the worst tornado, hurricane, or raging forest fire. It’s the rage of Americans who have been told they can’t work and feed their families. It’s the rage of people who value the basic tenants of this country over and above the decrees of power-hungry politicians. Those same politicians think they have the upper hand, but they do not and will be the first to incur the ire of Americans fed up with their lies and dictatorial actions. “When there’s nothing else to give except to sacrifice our lives to defend our freedoms…” Carlos Zapata

“When there is nothing else to give…”
One man, Carlos Zapata, a US military veteran and business owner in California, stood before the Shasta County Board of Supervisors to issue a warning. Take note that Shasta County, California, is one of the most Conservative areas of the State. But when people have no money to buy food, when their families have to go without, the warning is real.
“You guys can sit here with your jobs, you can sit here and fall asleep like that gentleman is with the mask on…
It’s not going to be peaceful much longer. This isn’t a threat, I’m not a criminal, I’ve never been a criminal. I’m concerned. Good citizens are going to be turning into revolutionary citizens pretty soon…You won’t stop us when the time comes, because we’re starving…
This is a warning for what’s coming. It’s not going to peaceful much longer. It’s not going to be rah-rah. It’s not going to be speeches. It’s not going to be gathering outside saying the pledge of allegiance. It’s not going to be waving flags. It’s gonna be real. When you’ve seen the things that I’ve seen—I went to war for this country—I’ve seen the ugliest, dirtiest part of humanity…
I’ve been in combat. And I never want to go back again. But I’m telling you what. I will to save this country and if it has to be against our own citizens it will happen. And there’s a million people like me and you won’t stop us. Open the county. Let our citizens do what they need to do. Let owners of businesses do what they need to do to feed their families…
…I’ve had six friends kill themselves–veterans who lost their jobs. You claim to be conservatives, maybe you’re liberals, I don’t know. Join with us, fight with us against what’s going on in Sacramento.”
“Good citizens are going to be turning into revolutionary citizens pretty soon…”
To all those who want to “snitch” on business owners, or your fellow citizens, or go full Nazi on someone not wearing a mask, or demand that businesses stay closed, that warning is for you. Mr Zapata simply voiced what all of us have been thinking.
What can we do? Carlos suggests we keep up the pressure on officials and not let up. Here he is in a video posted on his page:
