    The time has come...
    The time 2 cast aside our personal differences.
    Blaks, whites, hispanics, catholics, Christians, Jehovah's Witnesses.
    The time 2 stand united cuz the government's getting stronger.
    Passing laws that deny our freedom 2 say whatever the hell we wanna.
    In less than 4 years, the landscape of Amerikkka's been altered by
    a massive river of blood & tears.

    The time has come 2 stop talkin' & marchin',
    Cuz it doesn't do anything but gives them something
    2 televise at primetime 4 watchin' .
    We've caught them in lies consistently but nothin' comes from it...
    Except another 4 years.

    The time has come 2 gain control of our government.
    Of, by, & 4 the people.
    In every horror flick, more damage is done in the sequel.
    We're becoming victims cuz we're covering our eyes 2 keep
    from seeing the evil that's breathing down our necks...
    While their beady eyes inspect the damage their evil beliefs have unleashed.
    Casting terminally ill children into the streets 2 fend 4 themselves.
    The time has come...

    The time 2 resuscitate the mentally dead has come...
    The time 2 become aware of this Nation's happenings is now.
    No matter what race or sexual orientation.
    Understand their plan is the same.
    Realise that the powers that be consists of more than just one name...
    Bush is just the front man.
    Wether Democrat or Republican, it's still the same government.
    Good cop, bad cop, who U gonna speak 2?
    Public defender or personally hired lawyer, who U want 2 represent U?
    The outcome will be the same no matter what preventive measure U take.
    The time has come...

    The time 4 a revolution has arrived.
    Not a revolution consisting of bloodshed, but a revolution of the minds.
    The time 4 whoever's fed up with this country's affairs 2 unite.
    Like Mike said, "It don't matter if you're blak or white".
    The time has come 4 the U.S. gov't 2 start acting right.
    The people have proven that they want their voices heard with a
    record turnout 4 the election,
    But the gov't was determined 2 silence us by sabotaging the polls,
    ambushing the people with actions of aggression...
    Like, denying their rights cuz of their past incarceration...
    Keeping people with clean records from voting cuz
    they didn't have proper identification...
    In Ohio, they broke down the counting machines...
    Other places, they sent voters 2 incorrect precincts.
    The time has come...

    The time 2 stand up & shout has come.
    We can't afford sit down & remain quiet.
    The time has come 4 a political bomb 2 be ignited & thrown into
    the Senate & the House of Representatives...
    Take no prisoners.
    Everyone of them must become victims of our coalition 4 political redress.
    Consisting of wetbacks, [email protected], *******, ch!nks, & redneck$.
    The time has come...
    If we keep sleeping, the time will come when noone can say
    The Time Has Come.

    That's right, it is time for us to stand. I really felt this one. We can either watch our government go up in shambles, or we can do something about whats going on. And it is more than a few protests and riots. this was on fire :hot: :hot: :hot:

    keep the flow goin.

    Thank U 4 the feel fam, this last election, like the last election, has truly opened my eyes 2 what's goin' down, & it's kinda spooky, what with the Patriot Act, the war waged on false pretenses, the other candidate conceding so quickly, even though all the votes weren't in, etc..

    Yes, it's time to wipe the crust from our 3rd eyes & put our heads together 2 fight our common enemy.

    Bro. $$, we definitely R the people. Let's re-read the preamble 2 the constitution, it says it all. Peace.

    Prize, we won't win with riots, they'll just do what they did with Lawton, Okla. in the 20's.Peace.

    Sister triniti, thank U 4 the warm welcome, I've been doing a lot of truth searching, & I'm not done yet.

    Sister watz, I humbly thank u 4 the read & feel. Only when we realize that this gov. is supposed 2 work 4 us & not against us will there truly be a change. Peace.
