In 480BC, the Persian Empire with the most fearsome army ever seen to date, began its conquest of Greece. With 600,000 men, battle-hardened and cruel, King Xerxes began his advance towards Athens expecting little resistance. From the north coast they began, and slaughtered all in their path.

King Leonidas of Sparta took up arms in defense of his Neighbors. With 300 hand picked body guards, 700 Thespians, and 5,000 Greeks; King Leonidas took up position at the Pass of Thermoplyae, the only direct route through the mountains to Athens.

At the approach of King Xerxes army, an emissary was sent to King Leonidas seeking his surrender. "Why die here? We are a host without equal... Our archers are so numerous that the flight of their arrows darkens the sun..."

King Leonidas replied: "So much the better, for we shall fight them in the shade!"

King Xerxes began his assault and the Greeks ran. At the bottom of the pass, Xerxes offered surrender to Leonidas, that if they would lay down their arms, their lives would be spared.

"Molon Labe!" Cried Leonidas! "Come and get them!"

For three days the Spartans fought, and when the battle was ended the Spartans were killed to the man. But the time afforded to the Greeks to raise an Army allowed them to fight and eventually turn Xerxes from Greece.

King Leonidas and his 1,000 had won!

Today a stone memorial can still be found in the pass of Thermoplyae that reads : "Go tell the Spartans, travelers passing by, that here, obedient to their laws we lie."

What would happen if today America were invaded by an Army who's intent was to subjugate and subvert us to their will? Would we stand in the pass and declare our rights? Will we refuse to be conquered? Will we allow ourselves to be disarmed by those who mean us harm?

America is under attack and we are being invaded from all borders... Radical Islama-Nazi's, communist hispanics, socialist Europeans... They all mean us harm. They wish to change what we are and make us like them: Weak, controlled, subsurvient.

I declare "Molon Labe!"

Who will join me?

Just like my favorite president, Charlton Heston, is quoted:

"From my cold, dead hands..." :machinegu

That quote is just one of many libtard-offending bumper stickers on my truck. :D

If they try to take my guns, they'd better hope I run out of ammo, but then, i'll switch to one of my swords or the battle axe. If those break, time for the bowstaff! :beat:

Yep, MO, I am well familiar with that piece of history and it is one of my favorites. As far as I'm concerned, you are preaching to the choir. I'm already there with you buddy!

Walter, you couldn't of said it any better. MO is preaching to the choir. Of course this choir is armed and ready to do battle.
