The alternative, which you do not elucidate, is that I allow others to close the rivets on the chains of slavery around the necks of my children and their posterity. What do you think my choice is? Life is not so precious that I would scratch and snivel to hold on to it. Rather, I have seen for the first time a real opportunity. Let the system crash. I lamented during the campaign when I could remember what it felt like as a kid to grow up in Reagan’s America. I have since thought that on the other side of the difficulties that my children could instead taste of something that even I have not, that generations have not- REAL freedom. I could say more, but I’m sure the sentiment is clear.

If regaining “power” were our objective, then we would be just like you. You are right. The crowd was presented a candidate and they chose instead to cry “Barak Barabas!”

@Antitheist: If you actually read the chapters you will see that God is offering to rescue Israel from the horrors visited on them by their enemies as a result of turning away from righteousness. In fact, the whole book of Hosea is this plea for Israel to return to Him.
Hosea 13:9 “9 O Israel, thou hast adestroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.”

Every young man and young woman pays for their own mission. That is part of the sacrifice they make because THEY want to serve. You are mistaken.
