San Diego Complete Liberty Declares Sept. 11th “Government Blowback Day”

-- Wear a yellow arm-band on September 11; tell the world you didn’t swallow the Big Lie --

SAN DIEGO, CA – September 6, 2010 – The San Diego “Complete Liberty Meetup” group joins other voluntaryists, private-property anarchists, and libertarians by declaring September 11th a day of remembrance: Government Blowback Day. This September 11, nine years will have passed since the price of the U.S. government’s meddling foreign policy was paid by innocent people. Despite the passing of time, gullible people still believe the Big Lie that was cooked up in the Washington, D.C. “lie factory” – namely, that the terrorists “hate us for our freedom.” What freedom? The spy cameras? Phone and email surveillance? The high taxes? The Patriot Act? The paranoia? The promise of endless wars and new terrorists to come? We are tired of the nonsense. On September 11, the first Government Blowback Day will remind the lunatics in Washington, D.C. that some of us know the real reasons for the attacks. The terrorists made no secret about why they attacked: (1) U.S. government support for the apartheid state of Israel, (2) the presence of U.S. armed forces in Islamic holy places, and (3) the U.S. sanctions that killed over 500,000 children in Iraq as of 1995 (and continued until Dubya started his “war on terror” that will never end with Obama).

September 11 is a day to remember the real cause of terrorism: the president, the congress, and their foreign policy. Their policy ignores the warnings of George Washington, John Quincy Adams, and James Madison, the framer of the Constitution. The U.S. government caused the terrorism, but it will not take responsibility for it. It will not repent. It will not change its ways. Instead, it has attempted to distract the American people by inventing lies to pin the blame on others. By means of these lies, it has co-opted many of those who lost loved ones in the attack – using them as tools to continue its socialistic policy of war. We can only hope that they will wake up and become angry about how the U.S. government has used them in the most cynical way possible to promote its own ends: power over others for its own sake, more spending, and less freedom.

Even worse, it continues to create new enemies with each passing day, and the U.S. military cannot protect us from the inevitable blowback caused by this policy. From more than 700 military bases located in over 100 countries, the U.S. government continues to sponsor the same activities that triggered the September 11 attacks. Sucking up billions of tax dollars each year, the maniacs in Washington, D.C. threaten new sanctions against other nations – the very same policy that failed in Cuba and Iraq and everywhere else it has been tried. These actions have only one result: they put innocent people at risk both here and in the “target” nations. But while the president and congress put the lives of U.S. taxpayers at risk, they hide behind security devices and hardened facilities and armed protectors – all paid for by us. They use our taxes to create enemies around the world, and then they use our tax dollars to protect themselves from the blowback! It’s the perfect government program! They leave civilians burning and crushed in the World Trade Center, and we now live in a prison-camp-like nation of infants, where we are told what to think and do in more ways than we can count.

Government Blowback Day is a reminder that government is the problem, not the solution. Join us in remembering – while we still can. Wear a black arm-band on September 11. Do it after work if you can’t while at work.

San Diego’s Complete Liberty Meetup group consists of people who understand that politics is a dead end. We support only voluntary relationships, and consequently we will not point a gun at your head to get what we want. We leave the violence of government to the political left, right, and middle.

    For its launch, I think it went well, especially since there were no arrests. Next time, I'd like to get more interactive with passers-by.

    This was the Liberty On Tour from Keene, NH. activists who are out in San Diego using street theatrics as "Uncle Sam" with a blowhorn walking from Mission Beach up to La Jolla. He said things like, "off the beach now. Go back to work. I need more of your tax money because I know how to spend it better than you. Wars aren'' cheap and neither are bailouts." etc. etc.

    A group of us followed him 50 and on occasion, feet back, and many people were speaking favorably, and still having the conversation about government and taxes. There were no notable strong negative reactions.

    We approached many young college kids on the beaches, engaged in conversation about liberty, government, its role as opposed to the free market and handed out literature about the liberty movement.

    In summary it was an excellent outreach, engaging people of all walks of life. The cost was time and a walk on the beach.

    That's a great idea Larry! Thank you! Will you be reaching out to media and reporters for our event?

    Yeah, it might be as simple as changing the color of the armband. That could work.

    Excellent point Donna. I mentioned on the "armband idea" message board that I was looking into buying some fabric pens. I was thinking we could draw the A or V. Maybe we should change the armband color to yellow with black lettering to stand out?

    Hey folks-- Sorry I haven't been able to focus on this until now. Just want to say that I think it's a great idea, BUT I don't think black armbands will be effective. Many people already wear black armbands on 9/11, to show sympathy for the people who died. I don't think anyone will see it as anything other than that. Is there any way we could get a symbol or slogan to put on an armband to distinguish us from everyone else?

    Cont...Jesse offered his laser printer for flyers so I think meeting up and getting all of our propaganda in order would be highly beneficial. We could also set up dialogues and approach tactics.

    Tinie, we will probably meet in the parking lot where the Liberty On Tour RV will be parked. Hopefully they decide to come. Once in the parking lot we'll get our signs and propaganda flyers ready. I was thinking of setting up a homebase at the beach with our umbrella, where we can sit down and have food/water breaks and go around the beach talking to people about 9/11 and what we do as Complete Liberty members. What do you guys think about that?

    JP, I think that's a great idea. Cont...

    I will most likely buy some light black fabric at a fabric store and then write or paint the 'V' on it.

    Steve, Craig said we could cut a black t-shirt and hold it together with a safety pin. I was also thinking of black sweatbands. But good question, I was wondering the same thing.

    So where do we get these black armbands?
