I speak to you today on edge, as I think many of us are with recent events and the ramifications and implications of those events weighing heavily on
my shoulders. I will speak my mind on this subject in a straight forward manner without letting my emotions or patriotism get in the way of my
rational thinking, or at the very least.... I will try.
I am starting to feel a very distinct rift in America, it feels divided and leaderless, it is almost like high school with all the different groups
eating lunch at there own table, all the while never realizing they are attending the same school. It is disheartening on many levels and it is a real
shame it has come to this but that does not change the fact that there seems to be issues that large groups of Americans are not able to compromise
The answer to this is actually very simple in speech but I fear it is much harder to accomplish in practice but I fear it is the only way to stop
people from both sides from turning to violence out of anger and fear, this of course is only my opinion and in saying that, take it for what it's
worth to you.
The United States is and has always been a republic and states rights were very important to our forefathers for a reason. At any given time in
history, Americans are bound to be divided on certain issues and in rare occasion, these divides can and sometimes will be irreconcilable, so, what
are we to do without arming ourselves and shooting each other? It's a tough question that we should't have to ask ourselves, yet here we are.
Being a republic and being afforded and protected by the one true law we all share as Americans, the constitution, the states themselves can stop the
federal government from over reaching on there power, they can and must be the last defense against tyranny because none of us as individuals can do
so without well regulated militias, organization, training and leadership. We do not have these things, we have not for some time but the patriot act
has assured that we could not create such in the dwindling economy and overstretched laws that quickly followed without being labeled as domestic
terrorists instead of normal Americans who live by the law, the real law our country was founded on and for.
Consider this, if those that would take up arms should legislation that is unconstitutional and illegal be put in place and your plan is to take up
arms anyway, then, at that point you are all in anyway and would you not try one last thing to avoid bloodshed, most probably your own to achieve the
goal of restoring our liberty? Those that can not live with unjust and illegal law, should before violence seek out states that are strongholds for
the constitution en mass. If we all do this, we can effect change through peacfull non compliance with federal law while being protected by the
state, and each other.
The federal government will not seek to enforce illegal laws in states that have outlawed such federal legislation based on blatant non compliance of
the constitution and are willing to pledge there law enforcement officers, sheriffs and volunteers of the community to arrest and federal employees
trying to do so. If the population really will split 50/50 of such an issue as we have been presented the past month, perhaps it is best we all try
going our own way and leaving each other alone before we consider violence as nothing I could imagine could be worse than Americans killing Americans
for political ideology.
I am not a pacifist and I would fight to defend the constitution, liberty and freedom, I am no coward but it seems to me that there may be another way
and that way is to use the 10th amendment like it hasn't been used since our first civil war and the people who really care, who want to affect
change, should do so to at least try to prevent violence if it is avoidable. If enough of us pack our bags, our families and our lives and head to the
places they still honor freedom, we may find ourselves with better company and a little more security when we lay our heads down at night.
This is all just my opinion and for me, it's real talk.
