Stand by Razorbacker

I’ve been on my knees, in the muck and mire, the stench in my nostrils. I’ll stand.

Unbeatable forces force me again down, but again I stand.

Pain hurts, but despair kills. I’ll stand.

Do you think yourself alone, a minority of one? Still stand. One is enough, when one is all that there is. Stand.

To stand is to make a target of yourself. Stand.

You will not win. You are doomed to fail. Stand.

Better men than you have died standing, but all men must die. Stand. Do you not wish to be counted among the better men? Then stand.

Better to live a slave than die a freeman? If you ask the question, you cannot comprehend the answer. Stand.

Today is not the day? When, then? Are you so comfortable? Do your knees not ache? Man was not built to kneel, but to stand. So stand.

You were given a priceless gift, the gift of life. Do not waste it. Stand.

They will mock as you fall. All men must fall. It is a shorter fall from your knees. But fall from your feet, so as to make a resounding echo. Stand.

You can live on your knees. You will die on your feet. Choose for yourself; I will not judge. But as for me, I’ll stand.

A not-so-hypothetical...

They've read Solzhenitsyn too. Whattayagonnado when the black-suited officers in full gear knock on your door at 3AM, cuz you didn't register all your stuff like the politicos said you hafta.

And they noticed you have been buying supplies and stuff off the Internet. And they made your license plate when you went to the show in the neighboring free State and paid cash for more supplies. Oh yeah, they do that now.

Cept they won't knock, it'll be a battering ram followed by flash-bangs, and an officer at every window with night vision. Are ya gonna stand then?

And then whattayagonna do, if you are able to fend them off, they oops, "accidentally" burn your house down with you and your family in it by rpg'ing in some smoke and tear gas? Hmm?

The problem is, there's gonna be some go-firsters, who are gonna hafta stand alone. Stand without hope. Some. Maybe a lot.

If it's your time...
