Why the wimpy endings?

Recently I was asked about why my posts always end with an exhortation to work within the system.

The answer is simple. Because advocating armed rebellion against government excess is a crime.

Since I am not a criminal, except maybe to the thought police, I will continue to advocate peaceful means to change the system from within. That is, until and unless the government takes up arms against its citizens...at which point they will have lost all legitimacy and we are free to invoke change in the manner that Jefferson advocated.

I pray that day never comes.
