Beliefs

20 June 2012
…and your little Rule of Law, too!

 “I think we are ironclad on the constitutionality of [ObamaCare]. We believe in the Constitution. We believe in judicial review. … But I think it’s also important for the public to know that obstruction is the agenda of the Republican party. If they win, that will be their agenda. They don’t believe in a government role, clean air, clean water. You name it.” -House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

I’m with you, Nan! For instance, like your belief in the Constitution, I believe there is a thing called the Q’ran. And, like with you and the Constitution, I have no intent of implementing or defending anything in the Q’ran.

Of course, the major discrepency here is that never took an oath to support and defend the Q’ran. You, on the other hand, took an oath to support and defend the constitution- an oath that clearly had no meaning to you.

I think you can shut up, now.

Who Will Protect Us?

3 May 2012
The Armed Citizen. Our Protector.

Reading such quotes from the founding fathers as:

“No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
Thomas Jefferson (1776)

“The advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of.” James Madison (1788)

“We established however some, although not all its [self-government] important principles . The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; …that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.” —Thomas Jefferson (1824)

How can anyone, with a straight face, assert that the intention of the 2nd amendment could be anything other than, specifically:

“…being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”The 2nd Amendment To The Constitution of The United States.

I can’t fathom it. But, to all who would have no guns in the hands of the citizenry, I would confidently bet that you would live to regret your position in the event it ever came to pass. It is abundantly clear, in this current political climate, that all that stands between you keeping your life and possessions and those same being owned or taken away by your government is that they cannot stand long against the army which is the armed US citizenry.

I pray that you never come to realize this change of heart via those means, but, at the same time, I also pray that you come to that change of heart through  rational means…
