I'm just curious. All this talk of the Constitution. Is this document, that was written over 200 hundred years ago by people who had agendas and
circumstances that you can't even begin to understand, the sole inspiration for this adamant confrontation of any appearance of infringement on this
perceived right? Or is this something deeper in your own personality.
I certainly don't want to question anyone's motives, but I think some judgements are certainly impaired.
The Constitution is most certainly a flawed document if it's purpose is to maintain the united nature of the states participating in this union. In
the short history of this country ( and I hesitate to call this a country, more like a loose affiliation of dominions.) a lack of commitment to the
federal or supreme government has been on display often, the most visible being the Civil War. Remember that blood bath? I assume that commitment of
Abraham Lincoln to insure the continuation of this union is still strong.
I suggest that the strong individualism of many Americans is about to be tested. I also believe it is to come up wanting. Those who want to defy the
national government will soon be identified as enemies of the state and in this conflict power will prevail. Righteous reference to the Founding
Fathers and homilies of individual liberty, will mean little in the aftermath of the death and destruction that will ensue.This ain't a game you play
in the field with your friends shooting at paper targets. Is the will there to die and have your family stripped of their home and livelihood?
To quote Mr. Heston, " You'll pry this gun from my cold dead hands." Maybe they will. And just maybe It'll be the correct thing to do.
