Yes, we have reached a fork in the road as a nation. We have a choice to make that will determine whether or not we really cherish liberty or want to become like every other nation that fell under the yoke of socialist slavery.
We already are questioning the validity of our Constitution in view of world governance, and have not been vigilant of the runaway usurpation by those we chose by election to represent and protect us. Slowly over the decades, our servants have become our leaders and they are leading us off of the path of liberty and onto the road to serfdom.
Even what we eat and drink has become a subject of sociopolitical concern of those who we asked to protect us from a government that steps beyond its constitutional boundaries, and into the private lives of the American People.
What are we to think of a government that uses the same propaganda to scare and disarm its citizens as every dictator and tyrannical government has since recorded history? Are we to believe that it will be different this time? Why? If humans were better today than they were during the Inquisition and more civilized, we wouldn’t be discussing gun control at all. But the issue is what to do to protect ourselves without giving up our liberty in the process. And the truth is there is proof that no matter how well intentioned such laws were when enacted, the result has always been the murder or innocent civilians.
Our military is the most advanced on the planet, more than capable of protecting all of the United States from border to border and sea to shining sea from any enemies. But why are we paying them to protect other nations and corporate interests? If they were all brought home to defend America, we would not have the need for the excessive military spending we have now. And with a smaller military force that is backed up at home by the very capable and well armed citizens, less taxes need to be levied on the businesses and work force in America.
Some will say that we live in a more dangerous world today than even that of fifty years ago. That is all the more reason for the people to be well armed and trained in protecting themselves. How many planes would have been taken by terrorists if all those brave Americans were armed? Even a Sky Marshall or a few on a plane will be targets to take out before taking over the cockpit or crew.
I am saddened by these school killings, and I am appalled that those in positions to do the most good have instead continued to play a dangerous game of politicking which only serves to embolden criminals and place more good people in harm’s way. I will not however be willing to give up any rights for the illusion of security. Not once in human history has the banning of weapons benefited the people at large. Not once.
So here we are, looking at spiraling debt and out of control government spending, as the government looks for more ways to restrict the rights of its citizens as it taxes them into poverty. We have reached a fork in the road and if we take the path to the right, we may have the means to restore the Republic and our natural liberties and rights. Or we can continue to allow 534 people in Washington to continue to ruin our nation while they continue to enact laws designed to take more of our rights and our property.
Still think it’s about Democrats and Republicans?
