National Emergency or Breaking the Constitution

In the US Constitution resides a clause basically making it illegal for the government of the US or any State to deny access to any citizens to any other state.  This is called the “Privileges and Immunities Clause” (aka “Comity Clause”).  The Constitution also contains the 14th Amendment, which will get to a bit later.

The clause states: No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities…

The Privileges and Immunities Clause as set forth in Article 4, Section 2 dictates that states may not prevent citizens from their basic rights according to that which is exhibited by civil rights statutes. In such a way, any discriminatory practices whatsoever are not tolerated. In order to be more specific, it states that citizens of all locales will be made eligible for the attainment of such outlined “privileges and immunities” set forth for all citizens.

Essentially, the Privileges and Immunities Clause prevents a state from treating citizens of other states in a discriminatory manner. Additionally, a right of interstate travel may plausibly be inferred from the clause (this is not limited to ‘interstate highways’ either, but may involve any mode of transportation, including bicycle, car, boat, airplane, bus, etc). The Privileges or Immunities Clause is Amendment XIV, Section 1, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution. Along with the rest of the Fourteenth Amendment, this clause became part of the Constitution on July 9, 1868. Text of the clause.

The Fourteenth Amendment to the U. S. Constitution reads:

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

The point here is clear, the states have no legal right to deny access to their state for any reason.

Except….. States DO have police power functions to protect the health, safety, and welfare of persons within their borders. To control the spread of disease within their borders, states have laws to enforce the use of isolation and quarantine. (Quarantine Laws)

What they can not do, is deny entry to a state based on claims of “stopping communicable diseases” based on “license plates on cars” such as Florida has attempted to do. (Florida I-95 shut down)

Of course, they can certainly (and they did) stop traffic entering the state at Georgia, and “take everyone’s temperature”.  Which accomplished blocking up traffic for miles and miles.  People trying to get home to Florida, or to their other residence (remember, a lot of people have more than one place to live and stay).

Gov. Ron DeSantis said the purpose of the new checkpoint on I-95 south is to check for people coming from the New York City area — where there were more than 33,700 confirmed cases of COVID-19, as of Sunday — and help slow the spread of the deadly virus in Florida.

“Initially I was concerned about doing this because I don’t want there to be a backup,” DeSantis said during a news conference Saturday. “But they’re doing it in a great way where the trucks are going through. We’re not worried about that. We’re just worried about the people fleeing some of those areas.”

We get it.  They want to slow the passage of this disease.  They don’t want to STOP it, but slow it.  There’s almost no way to stop it now, based on the fact we didn’t close the airlines immediately.  So, it’s going to be passed along.

We get it. We don’t want to over run medical abilities to mitigate this, or the number of beds, respirators needed and so forth.

But, common sense…. right?

Wrong. North Carolina’s Dare County, the Outer Banks, the place so many people love to go to see the beaches and ocean, is shut.  It shut down in the middle of March. They blocked road accesses, and cruisers on boats (people who travel from place to place via boat) stated the “police were stopping boaters and turning them around” at first.  It turns out they no authority to stop traffic in the Intracoastal Waterway (a Federal jurisdiction).  Sailors/Cruisers, in general, when traveling are not exposed to diseases as easily as those who are coming in contact with their co-workers constantly, for instance. They tend to remain on their boats for days and weeks at a time. (Dare County)

More common sense? No.

On Oak Island, North Carolina, the Mayor, Ken Thomas has “decreed”  a ban on the sale and possession of “dangerous weapons”, and that police will ticket people who “are non-residents” for going on the beach.  “Some for me, none for thee” mentality?  Yes.  (Here is the ACTUAL statute, that the little island community MUST, but is not, following: (nc Enacted Legislation Chapter_166A/GS_166A-19.31.html)

The following links to the article int he Port City Daily news, a local paper in the area.

https://portcitydaily.com/local-news/2020/03/30/oak-island-allows-beach-access-to-residents-but-not-visitors-prompting-discrimination-questions/

Local areas are, we understand, just simply attempting to protect human life.  We get that.  But, such restrictions on who can and can not “go to the beach” and “congregate” are discriminatory in the least, and against all manner of Constitutional right in the most.  And the state law is SPECIFIC in what local governments can and can’t do.  Oak Island and Dare County are BOTH going against those laws.  (see the enacted legislation link above).

A fairly large number of people who live in the area of Southport, NC, Oak Island and St. James are people from New York, New Jersey and the New England states.  The complaint on their local gossip site on Facebook have begun, complaining about the “New York Plates” and “Stay home” and similar remarks.

One man suggested “Blowing the bridges” (up) and blocking access.  Others are taking pictures of license plates and posting them on the Internet.

So – what has this declared pandemic wrought?  The kindergarten mentality of “tell on your neighbor”, “Big Brother” and “Let’s punish those we think are breaking a law”.

Classic Societal Breakdown has begun.

On the face of it, people want to protect themselves.  They want to protect their families. We get it.  We do too, but not at the risk of losing our society, our way of life, and our freedoms.

The access to those beaches and coastal areas are already limited by developers, and by ‘powerful people’ who want their ‘views un-compromised’ by anchored vessels near the waterway.  Or by people parking to walk on the beach for an hour.

We have to question how someone walking on a beach is going to spread a virus in the sun shine and salt air.  No, this is bigger, this is the mentality of “we don’t want to just protect our families, we want to deny access to anyone who isn’t from around here.”

This is precisely what these small towns along the coast are doing, too. Both Outer Banks and Oak Island love the tourists, they have a lot of rental properties for the “Spring Breakers” and others who come down every summer to spend time here.  They enjoy the money, and complain about the tourists.  How is that a good thing?

It’s not. But until the Federal Government steps in and says “You can’t do that!” they will continue.

At this end of all this, lies a light at the end of the tunnel.  A return to normalcy, but how far that track runs and whether that light is the other side, or an on-coming freight train, we have yet to find out.

President Trump has extended the “Social Distancing” guidelines until the end of April, another, FULL month.  For most, it has been about two weeks and the mental break down of some of these people has begun.

Those of us who have always advocating “prepping” (and many years ago, we were called “Survivalists”) understand “social distancing”, we always have.  We also prepared for things like this, but even so, many will have to, in a month, or soon after, go out for food, supplies, or something like… toilet paper.  (Not all preppers keep a year’s supply either….)

Watching this ‘apocalypse’ unfold before our eyes is both ‘enlightening’ as well as ‘terrifying’.  The thing we expected is coming true, but it’s not a natural disaster as most of us envision.  It’s not a world war, as many believed.  It’s not nuclear annihilation, as may thought.

No, it’s a virus, something you can’t see but makes you sick.  And no one knows who has it, because there’s a two week incubation period and you are likely contagious before you show symptoms.  That in and of itself is enough to stress out the calmest prepper, let alone people who have no idea what “prepping” is about.

Our advice is simple; stay home.  If you’ve not shown any signs of being ill for the two week period, then there’s no reason to stay in any longer.  If you have not isolated for two weeks, then, do it.  If you are sick, do NOT go out at all.   This applies to everyone.

The second piece of advice, is mind your own business.  Stay out of your neighbors face, business, stop taking pictures of their license plates and complaining on the Internet.  Don’t act like a “Kindergartner”.  Doing so is bad for your mental health and it’s bad for everyone else’s mental health – and eventually it will lead to bad health for everyone in the long run–when you create bad feelings, bad neighbors and create a bad name for yourself.

A tale of two maps

At first, I wanted to think I was wrong. But now, it’s easy to compare. The Governor of North Carolina just announced that we have a “Stay at home” order starting on Monday.  Well, I’m an American, I’m a Veteran, I’m an old guy who is intent on staying alive, and staying in shape.

I refuse to “stay at home”.  Now, I think anyone sick should stay home. I think anyone with this virus or flu, ought to stay home (anyway).  I think if you are immune compromised, you ought to stay home.  I think if you’re over 60 and in poor health, stay the hell home.

The first map is the states currently CLOSED, with stay at home orders. The yellow means businesses are closed….  North Carolina is in Yellow at the moment, they close all the pubs, bars, restaurants over a week ago (Tuesday, 17 March 2020)

Map One – 27 Mar 2020

 

The Second map is showing in blue, all of the DEMOCRAT GOVERNORS. The RED is Republican.

Map Two – Dem vs Rep Governors

For the most part, the only states with “you’re confined to your house” are, in my words,  CommieCrats.

They are TESTING the WATERS friends.  If this were across the board, and the Republicans were doing it too, I might be less concerned.  But, at this point…. if they can get away with this, and force you to stay home, then they can force you to do anything they want. This is a test.

You’re going to fail.

You’re going to fail because most of the states have almost no cases, and if they do they are at home, or in the hospital, and it’s been two weeks of this…..

I do NOT plan to “stay home” or “inside”.  I’m NOT sick. I’ve been “quarantined already” for two weeks now.  Tuesday will be the 15 days.  I’ve had NO close contacts with anyone since the 17th other than my wife.  We’ve not been in physical contact with anyone.  I’ve been careful, washing hands, cleaning up after me, and her, and others, using hand sanitizer.  If I get this virus now… then it was not because I was not careful.

Just because I am OUT and ABOUT does not mean I’m going to get sick.

It does NOT mean I am going to catch something from some random person.

We have less than 700 people in this state (North Carolina) (allegedly) confirmed to have this virus. We’ve had 7 deaths so far.

We have a .45% mortality rate at this time.

Yes, I KNOW it could get worse.  I KNOW people can die from it.  But, they can die from getting hit by a bus.  They can die if they starve to death because “No job, no work, no money”….

Stop letting these States push you AROUND.

The Time has Come….

… to speak on this subject.
Having been a member of the US military, worked in the White House and have done “jobs” for some Three Letter Agencies in the past, and having ALSO been a member of, and formed, several small Constitutionally protected militia groups – and watched many of them disassemble themselves in fits of pique, miscommunication, and diverse ideological arguments, I have become somewhat jaded on “militia” groups and the like.
So many are enamored with “titles” like “Commander” or “Head of Operations” and haven’t really a clue how to do operations of any sort, or command themselves to go to the bathroom.  Instead, each group starts with enthusiastic clamoring for attempt to stand up against “the Government”, then fall apart because their goals are murky at best, and some people are simply a danger to themselves and others.
Militia groups exist and are constitutionally protected.  But, the MEDIA and certain elements with the US Government would have you believe otherwise.  IF you study history you would understand that we had militias from the beginning of this country, and they are, INDEED a product of the English and French common law to protect their own smaller enclaves in former times.
America didn’t even have a standing Army well after the foundation of the country.  The Continental Army was formed to fight the British in 1775.  However, that group disbanded, and  at least twice more a standing army was eventually created to protect the young nation.  Militias STILL existed then to protect local areas against invasion.
Militias are still constitutionally protected even today:

10 U.S. Code § 246.Militia: composition and classes

(a)The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.

(b)The classes of the militia are—

(1)the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2)the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

(Aug. 10, 1956, ch. 1041, 70A Stat. 14, § 311; Pub. L. 85–861, § 1(7), Sept. 2, 1958, 72 Stat. 1439; Pub. L. 103–160, div. A, title V, § 524(a), Nov. 30, 1993, 107 Stat. 1656; renumbered § 246, Pub. L. 114–328, div. A, title XII, § 1241(a)(2), Dec. 23, 2016, 130 Stat. 2497.)

Note there are multiple links associated with the above, explaining how the President can call in “militias” of other states, and federal forces against “insurrection” by states.

In truth, the Government is US, we the People.  We the People are in control.  We ARE the government.  We elect those Reps who go there and ignore our laws, and ignore our Constitution.  It’s time to begin holding them accountable to us.
The problem is, the government has become rife with those people mentioned in the last paragraph, who have not one iota of caring about the US Constitution.  They are mostly Left Leaning government workers and people in charge of various departments, and view the Constitution as a “living document to be changed how they wish”.  This is simply not the case.
The Constitution was never meant to be ‘changed easily’.  It’s very difficult at best, to introduce a new Amendment, or get it ratified in the end.  It’s nearly impossible to remove the Bill of Rights.  In fact, if there IS ever an attempt, this should be viewed as an outright act of War against our Way of Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness.
We, the People are both Constitutionally required to keep an eye on our government, and the attempts to undermine our freedoms, as well as to fight back against such attempts.
When you were a child, you heard “America is a melting pot” – of peoples from everywhere. This is true, but it was also the beginning of attempts to undermine our way of life by the Marxists living in this country.  They have used our own laws against us, and loud, shrill voices pointing fingers at us have caused people to back down, shut up for fear of being identified as “someone who might be a racist” or other things.  These tactics have worked and the Real, True American Idealism has been nearly eradicated.
 
Marxism, indeed “Democratic Socialists” have undermined the very fabric of this country, have put themselves in every Agency and department in the US Government, embedded judges, law enforcement personnel and lawyers in the Justice system.
Democratic Socialists are Communists. Marxism’s ultimate goal is to put control in the hands of a communist government. Progressivism is nothing more than a form of “Close Communism”.
The tactics of calling you names, making you feel guilty and forcing you to be quiet has worked to the point, we’ve allowed this infiltration of our government by these Marxist types.  (Note: We lump them ALL into the same bag now, as they do with us.  Marxism, Communism, Progressivism, most Liberalism and certainly any other of the so-called “party affiliations” that lean Left out there are nearly all seeking the same goal, and that is the utter destruction of America, Capitalism, and any sense of Patriotism or any sort of “nationalism” in this country.)
American Way of Life is NOT meant to be controlled by any single party, or any particular Ideology, other than that put in place by our Founding Fathers; the Constitutional Republic.  We are a “democracy” in that the “majority do not rule the minority”.
We are a Representative government.  We deliberately elect people to go in and stand up for our Rights, and to vote as we small groups want, as long as those votes by the Representative comply wholly with the idea of the Constitution, including our Bill of Rights.
Currently, in Congress, in both houses, we have people on both the Democrat and Republican sides of the aisle who choose to ignore Constitutional requirements, and were voted in by people who, apparently could not care less. While this is “certainly representative of the constituents”of those particular areas, it is also most definitely, against the Constitution.
It is time, in my humble opinion, to stop the Leftist infiltration of America any further.  We have a strong President at the moment.  But, that is not going to last forever.  American’s will become complacent again soon enough.  Three or four years hence, they will forget, as they always do the damage the Obama Administration did to this country in the name of “Progress” and “Compromise”.
Compromise to us means everyone gives a little and gets something in return.  To the Left, Compromise means, “You back off, you give us what we ask for, or we’ll call you names and make you look bad in public.”
Every person that reads this needs to think. Think about this:
We have a proposal to give to America.  To every, single red-blooded American in both birth and name, legal immigrants, and those who have had their rights pushed aside, ignored, and voted out… to the Second Amendment in particular, and the usurping of other Rights in the Bill of Rights.  A new, leaderless “Militia”.
Such a militia will include all Americans based on the current laws of this country and the Constitution.  It would include by default any existing “militia groups” that will adhere to the bylaws, and follow the same goals.
We propose a group with very clear, resolute goals, built from the bottom up, rather than the top down.  The rules, goals, mission statement and so forth will be presented and you- The People- will each begin your own local creation and representation within your OWN local regions.  City enclaves, counties, states, and on and on.
The size and shape of your organization will be up to your local control.  The only thing coming from “National” will be the set of rules, not orders, not direction (other than what the rules state) and each group would be local.  “National” will provide a way to contact each other, give directions on connecting up and help groups form by giving information.
What the people of United States need are multiple, small, decentralized covert operations cells of Men and Women who actually understand the Constitution. People who can, and will take the time to resist these Marxist moves on our government.
So, turn off your televisions for a time, and stop listening to the main stream media now, grab a good friend, or a good neighbor and start researching Clandestine Cell Systems.
We’re putting together an organization which will help. It will take good people, some time, and a good understanding of the goals. This isn’t a joke. This isn’t pie-in-the-sky.
This is a start for all the people feeling lost, feeling like there is nothing left to do but give up and let whatever happens, happen.
Americans do NOT give up, we don’t quit, and we don’t let evil win.
Are you going to let Evil win because it’s just easier to sit down and do nothing at all, or will you take up your flag, fly it high and stand up, be heard and make it clear we’re not going to go down to Communism without a fight?
The Choice is Yours.
More to come in the next few weeks. Please, stay tuned.
Here’s a brief list of links for those of you wishing to think more on your own. Read the various links below. Get informed. Start thinking about people for your local cell/group. Start with close friends with the same ideas as yours. Your husband, wife, close friends are best to start with. Make sure before you start working this out (and we’ll provide some instructions soon) that they believe the same things you believe about the Constitution. There can be no equivocation here.

Richmond, Virginia and the Gun Ban – 1-20-2020

I once lived in Virginia.  Many of my forefathers are from there in fact (a Great-Great-Great Grandfather named James Thompson Donaldson Sr. was born in Scott County, lived in Wythe Co VA and later Kentucky. My family migrated with Daniel Boone to Kentucky from Virginia.

I have roots there, and deep connection with the state of Virginia, even though I no longer live there and likely never will.

Here’s a little bit of history for perspective:

The first shots of the Civil War were fired in Virginia.

Williamsberg VA was the site of one of the first “gun confiscations” in the place soon to be know as “United States” when Governor Dunmore led the official British forces in Virginia at the start of the American Revolution. Local residents had appointed guards to watch the brick “magazine” in Williamsburg where the coloniy’s muskets and gunpowder were stored, but on the very windy night of April 20, 1775 they abandoned their posts. Dunmore took advantage of the opportunity. He had 20 sailors and marines from the schooner Magdalen land at Burwell’s Ferry, near the modern Kigsmill Resort. They walked four miles to Williamsburg, opened the locked gates of the magazine using keys provided by Lord Dunmore, and started to remove the half-barrels of gunpowder weighing 65 pounds each.

Local residents quickly discovered what was happening, but the sailors and marines had time to load 15 of the 18 half-barrels into a wagon and return safely to the Magdalen.

The governor claimed he was ensuring a slave insurrection could not use the gunpowder, but the colonists recognized he was disarming them. Patrick Henry led militia on an unauthorized march to the capital city; violence was avoided by a face-saving compromise when the royal Receiver General paid for the value of the gunpowder.

( Mary Miley Theobald, “The Monstrous Absurdity,” Colonial Williamsburg Journal, Summer 2006, https://www.history.org/foundation/journal/Summer06/plots.cfm; Norman Fuss, “Prelude To Rebellion: Dunmore’s Raid On The Williamsburg Magazine,” Journal of the American Revolution, April 2, 2015, https://allthingsliberty.com/2015/04/prelude-to-rebellion-dunmores-raid-on-the-williamsburg-magazine-april-21-1775(last checked June 4, 2019))

Yesterday, Monday 20 Jan 2020, a similar event occurred.

As  State Legislator Amanda Chase says, this is not a “Virginia Problem”. This is an “America Problem”.

It’s NOT about guns. It’s about Rights. It’s about the fact the Second Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights. It wasn’t placed there to create an army, or give permission to the “national guard” to carry arms.

It clearly, VERY CLEARLY, states two important things. The people are the militia. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall NOT be infringed.

Virginia and the USA are “Free States” and as such, our citizens are forever, “the Militia”. It’s not a few men and women who decide to put on a uniform and a “patch”, and it’s not “white people”, it’s not “racists”.

It is EVERYONE in this country who has those rights.

It is the GOVERNMENT WHO MAY NOT TAKE THEM AWAY.

The United States of America, her citizens, WILL NOT GIVE UP their rights. We keep those guns as a Symbol of Freedom.

To the rest of the world – we don’t care what you do, think, or say. This is Europe or Australia. This is sure as hell NOT Russia, or China and anyone that wants to emulate THOSE places are welcome to move out of this country to one more suitable for their tastes.

The Left in America is simply WRONG.

Stand down, stop trying to ban our guns.

We’re finished listening to you and your illogical reasoning.

Conspiracies, Gun Control and You

I find it disconcerting that people continually bring up conspiracies, and call those of us who, by the way are very well read on some of the subjects, “sheep” and “brainwashed”.

This is a Leftist tactic. Call people names. Make them feel bad. Make them think they are stupid. Look, I’ve been following and in many cases, disproving (even, shall we say ‘disemboweling’), conspiracy theories) for a very long time. Perhaps longer than some folks visiting here have been alive.

I even ran a site called “Anomalies Network”. I was the forums administrator and one of my jobs was to take apart conspiracy theories and show the holes. I don’t have as much time these days to do that – but suffice it to say that almost every stupid theory out there, from 9-11 to Illuminati has been pretty much disproven.

People, however persist on these things because it gives an air of mystery.

Let me explain what is wrong with this…. it is distracting. It keeps people in an uproar over the wrong things. It takes the focus off the most important things in life, including but not limited to taking care of your own, your family, yourself, your friends and your future.

Right now, there are things that are SIGNIFICANTLY more important than “George Bush caused 9-11”.

  1. Pedophilia… of EPIC proportions.
  2. GUN CONTROL
  3. Socialists, Communists and Muslims in Government
  4. Fighting the good Fight

Choose your battles wisely and carefully. Of all of those things above, Gun Control is the NUMBER ONE MOST IMPORTANT point of the four.

The US Government is onto the pedo rings, and they are taking them down. But, it answers what has happened to so many children who simply vanished over the years.

Socialists and Communists and Muslims in Government will work itself out, or it won’t.

Fighting the Good Fight – the thing that is most near and dear to your heart, whatever that might be, is nothing if you don’t have the freedom to fight. I fight against censorship constantly, to the point I’ve been banned from Social Media in some areas. But, I’m STILL HERE, aren’t I?

Gun Control – isn’t about guns, it’s about CONTROL.

The NRA, GOA and a couple other organizations have more or less folded under pressure from the Left. And from internal pressure of those who think it easier to “get along to go along”.

Gun Control affects us all. Cops, Military, Fire Fighters, and Civilians. A weapon in the hand of a trained individual is worth all the cops in the world if they are 6 minutes away.

Controlling the guns – a plank of the platform of the Leftists in Congress (Beto O’Rourke for example) is absolutely his highest and most important point of order. Bernie Sanders is right there with him.

These two men have one thing in Common. Socialism.

Which, eventually, leads to Communism.

American can NOT become Communist, while the men and women of this country stand up and firmly say “NO”. And to do this we MUST in unison, stand say, “You Shall NOT infringe our Right to keep and bear Arms”.

Stand up. Call your Congressional Reps and tell them in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS, attempting to remove our weapons, or access to them, absolutely, unequivocally means WAR.

America’s Fall

Today, we older generational people, the “Boomers” as some refer to us in an unkindly manner, are the last of the children of “The Greatest Generation”.  We came after the end of World War II.

Our parents and Grand Parents saw the fall of the 3rd Reich, the Japanese Empire and the rise of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic – the USSR.  My father fought in the Korean War, a marine, who survive a massive battle to take and retake some unknown-today hill against Chinese Communists helping the North Koreans.

My wife’s father stood terrible duty in the Aleutians during World War II.  My own family has had military members through out our time in the United States, ranging from the American Revolution, to the War of 1812, Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and later events like police incidents in Central America, the Cold War, Afghanistan and Iraq in more recent times.

My family has a storied history in war.  Not because we’re war mongers.  Quite the contrary.  We’re all against war.  But, almost every military man and woman knows and understands something that many today don’t grasp.

We understand the requirement to have a strong military to prevent incursion of Communism into our own environs.  We hold Military Service in a very high regard and do it of our own, free will almost always each of us joining a service before being drafted for some particular fight for Freedom.

As such, we all understood, before stepping into the boots and hefting a rifle the sacrifice we were making, in some cases, the ultimate sacrifice, giving one’s life for the American Way of Life.

We also understand/understood history.  Those stories before us of both war, and how they came into being.  How the Revolutionary War began, why it began, who precipitated it and why America came into being.

Today, we have people unaccustomed to war, and many who have been to war recently who understand that sometimes a war must be fought to keep everyone else safe.

Young people today seem to care little about the past, and are more concerned with protesting to give away their God Given, inalienable, natural rights.

Some see the Second Amendment (and indeed, sometimes the entire Constitution) as a worn, tired, out-of-date piece of parchment not worth the ink with which it was written.  Calls for changing the Constitution abound.  Cries to rescind the Second Amendment are being yelled loudly in the Press and from the Left side of the Political Aisle.

I’m here, not unlike Paul Revere himself, to herald a call to Arms and Warn the Americans that “The Progressives are Coming”.  They are already among us, screaming for things like “Common Sense Gun Laws” and “Gun reform”.

Truthfully, guns don’t require “reforming” as they aren’t evil, didn’t do anything wrong and are simply tools of the trade to the military man, police officer and honest, duty-bound Citizen of the United States to defend himself, his family and his community against transgressions against themselves by either criminals or, God Forbid, the Government itself.

We stand on the very precipice of the fall of the United States today.

The aforementioned Boomers and Millennials are locked in a mortal battle at this point in time. Not a bloody battle (no yet anyway) over Gun Control, the Second Amendment and the “tired, worn out Constitution”.

In less than a generation, roughly twenty-five more years, that youngest generation marching today against guns, against the NRA, against the “evil AR15” and against you my friends, will be the next generation in control of Congress, the White House and the Supreme Court.

We, the Boomers, the Cold Warriors, the Afghan and Iraqi Veterans are all that is left to stand up to those children who want to give away the very heart of America to Socialism, and ultimately, Communism.

The Communists warned us, over and over, they would take us over without firing a shot.  But, shots have been fired, against innocents in schools, and cities all over America using the “Evil Black Assault AR15” – a simple, semi-automatic rifle that is no different from a bolt action deer rifle, other than it has a smaller caliber.

Those children of today know not what they give away, know not how many men and women died protecting those very rights they intend to hand over to a future government, to remove those rights from their very own hands.

One generation, mark my words, if we do not turn this trend around now, if we do not reign in the wild accusations from Children, taught to them by Progressive and Marxist teachers in a public school, paid by OUR tax monies, given to those same Progressives and Marxists the Communist’s prophecy will have come true.

We are doomed to die in less than three hundred years.

Today, we wander down the path the Romans wandered in their last days.  Innocence lost, barbarians at the door and living in our own land, as well as our own apathy and ignorance have wrought what we shall soon reap.

This author implores you all, one last time, step up, be heard, fight the loss of this country and the loss of the Greatest Document written by man.  The US Constitution.

I personally swore and oath to protect it, six times in my career.  That Oath never expires and it doesn’t lessen as the years go by, it only calls in a stronger voice to me.

But, I’m one man.  My children learned their lessons well, and will continue in my stead.

Will yours?

I call upon every would-be, wannabe and existing Militia in the United States to stand up, be heard.  Do not back down.  Do not let the Constitution die when we die.
