Trampling on Tyranny
Spinning propaganda to promote policies that have nothing to do with the issues is now the way party politics operates at all levels of government. A look at the facts will demonstrate the fallacy of what the politicians and government wants us to believe.
No background checks or bans to weapons or magazines would have had any bearing on the most recent attacks on Americans. Most of these deaths were not caused by guns. In the bombings in Boston, a more vigilant policy to enforce immigrantion laws may have prevented it since it was learned that these two were interrogated by the FBI due to information provided by Russian authorities.
In the case of mentally unstable individuals who commited murders with guns, knives, and even baseball bats, it seems obvious that background checks would not have helped either. Most crimes involving deaths by shooting are weapons that were obtained by the criminals in illegal transactions. New laws will not stop bad people from breaking those new laws as they do with current laws.
But there is a much larger issue at the forefront of all of this. The issue most relevant is that of rights and limits. Regarding rights, there are some who feel that the government has the authority to infringe on the rights of the people if it can demonstrate it is for the good of the people or the security of the nation. The government cannot take that which it did not give. Our rights are not obtained from the government nor do we get them from the Constitution. And the Constitution only spells out some of those rights, rather concentrating on the duties and limits of the federal government, primary of which is protecting the rights and safety of the people.
There are many Americans today who think that government has the duty to provide many things for the people of America. These are people who have been taught by institutionalized schools, mandated and regulated by federal government, being indoctrinated into thinking as they are told to think, what to think, and allowing authority of the government prevail. More and more examples of individualism being suppressed and even punished make the news in between this recent major distractions from the real issues of a government that is so corrupted by greed and power, that they will sooner bankrupt the nation rather than admit they can't fix the problem without cutting the spending and reining in the Federal Reserve System that is further destroying our economy.
Our nation is under attack, not only from foreign extremists, but from within by a corrupted representation of the people, who cater to the whims of corporate interests to the detriment of the citizens they are supposed to protect.It is up to us, We the People, to defend our nation when our government fails. We must restore our nation ourselves!
