Our government is out of control. The president continues to bypass or skirt congress to appoint radicals, create bureaucratic agencies that forge costly and highly restrictive regulating edicts to destroy business and control individuals. The Constitution is tattered and tread upon with each presidential appointment and massive spending plan. Congress has been neutered by the moves.
Former military bases have been converted to “FEMA emergency camps”. Surrounded by high fences topped with concertina wire, they are said to have been transformed to house individuals and families in case of national disaster. If that is the truth, why is there need for guard towers, 12’ fences and razor wire?
The NSA is building a $1.5 billion cyber data collection and storage center outside Bluffdale, Utah supposedly to intercept communiqués between terrorists and other national security threats. Facebook, Twitter, text, email and phone conversations of any person can be monitored at any time in the name of “National Security” now. The archiving of all such personal interaction soon will be norm of the realm.
Security cameras on virtually every street corner, drones patrolling our cities and countryside, communication monitoring and super prisons manned by government officials do not promote freedom. They impede freedom and abase privacy. The government is usurping our rights as citizens while telling us the intent is to protect us. We cannot allow this to continue.
The Attorney General, as head of law enforcement for the United States, allowed violent Mexican drug cartels access to high-powered, high capacity and rapid firing weapons in what has been described as an attempt to show how easily criminals can obtain weapons. This move, to some, represents an attempt to put greater restrictions on gun and ammunition purchases for the citizens of our country. Many believe it was a harsh attempt to begin eliminating all firearms from personal use.
Given the above and knowing that the government will continue to appropriate more and more un-granted authority through the restriction or elimination our individual rights in direct violation of the first ten amendments to the Constitution, it is time to take action.
Amendment II: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”.
It may be time to not only consider, but also begin forming a “well regulated Militia” before it is no longer possible. I’m not suggesting an aggressively hostile, subversive or anarchist type movement, just one that may need to defend American citizens from an overly abusive government.
We the People must protect one another from a tyrannical government. Our representatives are becoming more intrusive and dictatorial with each administration. They have become adversarial. Each change of guard only builds upon the domination of the previous one. If we complacently allow the outlawing of all firearms, which is the direction our elected and the appointed puppets of the Executive branch are headed, there will be no possibility of protecting ourselves against them. That is their goal!
First, they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.
