“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” -B. Franklin
Benjamin Franklin talked about the choice being between essential liberty and temporary safety. The truth is that safety cannot be bought. It might be borrowed for a time, but there is no such thing as permanent safety.
On 14 March 2018, thousands of young people, in the High School age range (and many much younger than that) walked out of their schools “in protest”.
This protest was staged by Progressives. Let me be clear, a “Progressive” is nothing more than a Marxist, and Anti-Capitalist, a wanna-be Che Guevera Fan club member, and an arm of the Communist Party. Every Liberal in the United States is a Closet Progressive, and out-of-the-closet Progressives are Communists in the making.
No, I don’t misunderstand the difference, I KNOW the differences in the definitions of the various types of political parties, but I also know that over time these groups have melded into one for a main objective; to utterly destroy the very foundation of the United States of America.
Those children of 14 March were Sock Puppets. Many thought they were memorializing the children and teacher killed last month in Florida. Outwardly, many were told to go protest, and teachers, school boards and school officials – MOST of whom belong to the NEA – allowed this to happen. School officials who are not in the Teacher’s Unions (notoriously Left Leaning by the way…. seeing the pattern yet?) stood tacitly by for the most part and ignored the ramifications.
Instead of memorializing the dead children, one ADULT with a bullhorn angrily read the names of the children and teach killed, with a very emotional “MURDERED!” she shouted.
Others chanted “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho! The NRA has GOT TO GO!”
Some young (Muslim) women – I know this because they were dressed in hijabs, stated they came here looking for “peace and tranquility” and America “is a murdering country”. Came here for tranquility? From where? Why? Stay in your own country and fight there.
Franklin argued for Liberty, not safety. He, like so many others of the men of his time pledged his “fortunes” to the cause of making America Free.
History tells us that the Constitution originally did not contain the Bill of Rights. The First Ten Amendments, which were required before the Colonies would eventually ratify the Constitution. While those tend Amendments are certainly like all the others, able to be added or removed based on the rules IN the Constitution, those ten Amendments are part and parcel of what enables us, the People of this country, to remain in charge.
Not the government. Not a set of Judges. Not even Congress. Not the President. We, the People. The laws in the Constitution govern the GOVERNMENT, not us.
The Second Amendment was not written as a secondary by product of wild imaginings. It was written because the King of England had tried numerous times to disarm the British Subjects in the Colonies. In fact, all of the Colonists were “Subjects” to the King. Now, today, we, their descendants are CITIZENS.
We remain Citizens by Right of Being Born here. By Right of being able to defend ourselves against those who would disarm us, and reign over us with tyranny. The Colonists didn’t want a standing Army to be used against them.
Today, we have a “standing Army”; the police, who have been militarized. The US Military, sworn to protect the Constitution, the National Guard, the Coast Guard, and other, lesser groups who are armed in every Department of the US Government (As “Agents”).
The Second Amendment is NOT about Hunting. It’s NOT about “self-defense”. It’s about PREVENTING a large standing army from taking our Freedoms away.
The Second Amendment is there to PREVENT Progressives from taking our guns.
I’m going to say something here, that might sound inappropriate to many of you, and I don’t condone violence, and am, having served in the military for over two decades, very against war. But, it is high past time to stand up and fight back. Not with violence. With phone calls. With letters. With Email. With speeches. With words. With the Pen for the Pen is mightier than the sword.
It is time to let everyone know, without a doubt, we will NOT give up one more piece of Liberty for Safety. Giving up our guns gives anyone the ability to come in and rules us all.
In my sixty years on this planet, I would never have believed that we could have gone so far down the path of destruction at the hands of an internal enemy of Progressive Marxism. All, EVERYTHING I have fought for is being usurped before my very eyes by wolves in sheep’s clothing.
Progressives are the ENEMY. They are not “Progressive”. They are REGRESSIVE. They are the Children of Hitler. They are the “arm band” people. They are the ones who tell you “It’s for the Children” and then put you in prison later, for who knows what purposes or reasons.
Because, you are a dissenter.
I say DISSENT!
ARISE! and Stand up to these people.
While you still can, be heard. When they won’t hear you any more and they start coming for your guns, then will be the time to shoot back.
This isn’t a game any more. This is not a charade. The Left WANTS YOUR GUNS.
They MUST DISARM YOU to control you. And Control you, they will.
