I don’t trust my government as far as I can throw it, and I can’t throw it very far. But the Second Amendment affirms the ability of The People to abolish an unsound government, and so the government has no authority to rule against the Second Amendment. Just as roaches have no authority to rule against the Orkin man. As long as government is subordinate to the basic freedoms of The People, and works for The People, government has no reason to fear the Second Amendment. It is the spare tire, the insurance policy of a free state. As long as we are free, the Second Amendment is merely an academic affirmation of a God-given right. When we are not free, the Second Amendment is a reminder of our duty and our ability.
I hope you are reading this, President Obama. You are a servant of the people. Not a master. Get it? You want to be the greatest of all? Strive to be servant of all.
LOL - Now there's a keeper! The problem is, the government now believes it's the Orkin man, and we're the roaches.
very poetic, Jeffersonian, great notable quotable!
I will borrow that phrase on occasion, comparing govt. to roaches! :)
