From Fox News Interviewer: General what do you hope to accomplish here?
General: What we hope to accomplish today is the beginning of
making the federal government smaller and getting it back
inside the framework of the Constitution. We are looking for an
Egyptian moment here; where instead of 30-35 million people all
across the nation we have participations by 100 million
Americans standing up together, uniting. Saying "We have had
enough. We want out country back." It's time for the people to
rise up and tame this beast that is the federal government. Our
non-representing Representatives have got to listen, they've
got to be put on notice: 2014 is coming, 2016 is coming, and
what's coming with it is We The People and big, big change.
This is the beginning, this is the springboard for this.
Interviewer: When you say "enough", enough of what? What have
you had enough of?
General: Enough tyranny, enough taxation, enough big
government, we've had plenty enough of THAT.
Interviewer: Is there one thing that was the tipping point for
General: Obamacare probably had a whole lot to do with it;
being a tipping point. Obviously this movement was being
planned and was underway well before the shutdown, but you know
what? We thought we'd add our own brand of shutdown to this and
just cut the city off, and in a way, in a symbolic way, sort of
shut down D.C. to isolate them the way D.C. and all their
regulations and everything are just choking the life out of
this economy, out of our rights, out of our freedoms. I'm doing
this for my grandchildren. So my grandchildren can take, and
have the opportunity to grow up in a United States of America
that IS free, with a much smaller, less intrusive federal
government, power returned to the States, and to the People.
