Safety Versus Security

 

“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.

Lyons Colorado Cutoff

Yesterday in the space of about 20 minutes a small town in Colorado northwest of Denver was cut off by natural disaster.

There are roughly 2000 residents in the area.  Right now there are no roads.  There is no water.  There is no functioning sewage system.  There’s no electricity.  There’s no way out and no way in.

For the last 30+ years of my life I have tried to convince people to take time to “be prepared”, not unlike teaching the Boy Scouts.  Not unlike teaching military members.  I’ve tried and been laughed at over and over and over again for being a “kook” or a “survivalist nut” or asked “Why are you so worried?  Nothing is going to happen!”

Well, I live in Colorado.  In the past 25 years we’ve had floods, blizzards, rock falls, small quakes, major forest and wild fires and we’ve had Biblical rain before (many years ago it rained for 15 straight days without stopping! I doubt a lot of people remember that far back).

This is precisely the kind of survival situation I’ve talked about, and been laughed at over.

I’m not here to say “I told you so”, I’m here to remind people that this happened within a few miles of a major city (Denver) and it could easily happen anywhere.

Now, isolated you say?
No, yesterday evening an entire town up in that area was evacuated as a damage broke and 30′ high wall of water barreled down on Boulder Colorado. (Not that it would matter much to me if it washed the side of the mountain clean of the idiot anti-gunner, hippie Liberals dicks that live there….) but fortunately for Boulder, the water dissipated just before it arrived there.  Could have been significantly worse.

The road closures also affect Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs in the central part of the state.  Most of Highway 24 is gone.  Highway 24 is the only real road that takes you over the pass from Colorado Springs up the pass to the far side.  (There are other roads, but they are not very good).

It’s been raining for two days.  Oh, and we’re “in a drought”.

Whatever.

I hope this lesson can be used by everyone.  Think of the problems that can happen in your own area given weather conditions, rivers, roads, dams, flooding, snow, ice, rock slides and even tornadoes.  If it can happen in Lyon Colorado it can happen anywhere.

Anti-Gun, Anti-Second Amendment Comments

I just wanted to point something out to the Left leaning, Liberal, Progressive, Communists out there reading my blog.  Good for you, pay attention and you will LEARN something.
But let me also point out something else.  In the United States of America you have a right to your opinion.  You also have a right to keep your opinion to yourselves.  I don’t give a shit what you think about guns, me, the Second Amendment.  YOU ARE THE ENEMY of this country.  Not me.  Not gun owners.

Your remarks will not be approved here ( yes I read them all), they will be ignored.  I don’t care to hear your rants, raves or attacks on me, my family, guns, or the Second Amendment.

I intend to STOP you people from destroying my country any further.  Find another outlet for your frustration, your trash, and your accusations, because I’ll not give you voice.

Communism, “Progressives” (Commies in disguise), Liberals and even a lot of Democrats are nothing more than mouth pieces for the Alinsky-Obama-Jarret triade, and yes, I think you are all criminals.  You flaunt the US Constitution back in our faces with your “Rights” while trying to undermine the Constitution itself.

I’m done listening to, giving any voice too, or giving any credence to ANYTHING you have to say.  As far as I am concerned anything coming out of your mouths or keyboards is a lie.

I’ll leave you with this last thought, then I’ll expect you to fade away into the sunset.  IF your argument that the Second Amendment didn’t MEAN “Weapons of War” then the First Amendment, by your OWN LOGIC must not have included computers, printers, mass media, television and cable news and MUST have been limited only to a quill pen, a piece of parchment, ink pot and the very rare and occasional printing press.

Now, go away.
