Ok. A lot of justifiable anger being expressed here. But anger expressed on a website does not equate to action.
Just saying “WE WILL NOT OBEY!” may make us feel better, but it doesn’t DO anything. What are we going to do??
There are a couple of issues. 1) Does an Executive Order issued by the POTUS equate to the law of the land, or is it simply an order that affects the agencies of the federal government? If it has the effect of law (and was always intended to have the effect of law) why have we wasted billions upon billions of dollars funding Congress??? Just give the dictator his due and be done with it. 2) If the political elites surround any of the Amendments with so much garbage as to make the original intent null and void while giving it the appearance of still having meaning, do we still have any Rights?? Obviously, the answer is no. Zero and the political elites know that if they just strike down the 2nd Amendment, we will get angry (but, will we take action?). But, if they load up compliance with those Amendments with so much frivolous paperwork and procedure as to make the EXERCISE of that Amendment a veritable waste of time and effort, are our rights still guaranteed?? And, if we sue in court to have the garbage overturned, will the court acknowledge that we have standing to bring such an action?
Politicians and the left understand one thing - if we want to get their attention, we HAVE to TAKE TO THE STREETS EN MASS!! Making empty threats about elections and sending them nastygrams doesn’t make NEARLY as much of an impression on the political elites as few million of their constituents gathering in the streets to protest!!
So, while I respect your manifesto and agree with the principles stated therein, there MUST BE a CALL TO ACTION!!!
The Pledge of Allegiance
I pledge Allegiance to the flag and to the Constitution of the United States of America and to the Republic for which they stand, one nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.
The 20th century was disastrous for the USA. Marxism moved in incrementally and because it didn’t appear to be bothering the majority of us, we did nothing. We saw what happened to Ruby Ridge and Waco, to the native American reservations, the Japanese, etc., and we sort of felt that it was not our problem, or that the ‘good’ people in government would act to make things right. It didn’t happen, of course, so now we have 2 parties that are on the same path to full Marxism. One slower than the other, to be sure, but both are headed that way. The problem is to whom do we turn to lead? I doubt that we could agree on as few as 2-3 people because the media has tarnished our best so that many of us believe the lies, as well. Problem is: there are NO PERFECT PEOPLE. We are going to have to look carefully at those who are speaking out, those who are standing up, and try to rally support behind them. I’m for a new political party, myself. The GOP seems to have made irrevocable agreements with the democrats over the years. The dems don’t hold to them, but we are forced to or they take to the public and decry our breaking their trust. Our side doesn’t do the same. I know they have no stomach for it...and to honest, most of us would not. However, the time has come to stand up and be counted. If we do not, we are essentially saying that we either don’t care, or that the issue is not worth it. At what point does it become?
Obama is prodding, provoking a fight...not with the GOP, but with law-abiding citizens. He wants US to cross the line first, draw the first blood, then he can say that his actions were necessary for the good of all. For the children, you know...the dems favorite political hide out. As Mark Levin says, among others (Rush, etc.) we have to be very cautious. We need to try to not break the laws of the land. Our action HAS TO BE in reaction to a deliberate act of lawlessness by the government. Yes, I know that they are being lawless right now, but it would not be in our best interest or favor to start shooting, or have an armed conflict over Obama’s WORDS. We need to start organizing a real lawful rebellion first.
All I’m saying is to be careful that you do not bring a swat team to your house in the middle of the night. And, by all means, let us keep our heads. We cannot be reactionary. That usually results in poor judgement and more harm done than good.
I would love to comply but I sold all of my guns at those terrible gun shows. Im considering putting a sign in my front yard saying that we have no gums. Then i can get a multimillion dollar grant from FedGOVCO and retire early. I still can’t figure why they attached “Gun show” to the fact that they are trying to make it illegal for me to sell my gun to you as a private citizen. All the vendors at gun shows do a NICS check on anyone buying a gun from them.
PS I spray painted two of my baseball bats black. Does that make them “assault bats”?
‘Get off my lawn!’
Be careful indeed. Rash action at this point would counter productive. Join NRA and/or similar groups. Encourage your friends and family to join. I read that the ranks of NRA have jumped 250K, bringing the total to 4 Million members. Surveys show that 47% of homes have guns. That is almost 150 Million potential NRA members. There is power in numbers.
No wishes about it - they cannot make one obey, they can obly threaten until we cave in and surrender to fear. Their type of compulsion is at the point of a gun - uh-oh, gotta bleat like a sheep, or they'll penalize me. They're not prepared for millions to say, "We will NOT obey" and mean it - how many can they cram into already over-crowsed jails? Then jail it is, if it comes to that. For I will NOT obey!
The caption should be “COME AND GET IT” which would be more descriptive and a fair warning.
