A factual opinion:
Just because the Senate voted down the gun control bill earlier this week it doesn't mean anything. Friends, here in America, we have a constitutional
right to bear arms and our eleceted officlas are doing everything possible to infringe on that right. Our forefathers placed the 2nd ammendment into
our constitution for one very good reason; To ensure OUR government NEVER oversteps it's citizens and to ensure the USA remains a democracy in case it
ever tried. Thomas Jefferson said it best:
"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."
We need guns, without them, we will never be able to protect ourselves from what OUR government would like to do. They want YOU powerless. They want
you to give up your freedoms. They want to make every decision for you and they don't want YOU to have any control. They want your freedom and they do
it in the name of keeping you safe. Again, I will quote Jefferson. "Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans,
and must be that of every free state."
The media is the governments greatest asset in the pursuit to steal your freedoms. What better form of manipulation is there? You sit down to watch
the local 5 o'clock news and it's rare to hear any good news, it's all horrible. Then the national news comes on at 530, more of the same. It is
designed that way! What better way to keep your citizens docile and unaware? What better way to pursue an agenda than to control what you see & what
you read? It's been widely known for years that the televison is the greatest form of manipulation on one's mind. Before the TV, it was the radio and
before the radio it was the newspapers. All forms of media are riddled with subliminal messages designed to make you desire something. It's been
happening for years and there is no end in sight. Again, I would like to quote Jefferson. "The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than
the man who reads nothing but newspapers" and "I do not take a single newspaper, nor read one a month, and I feel myself infinitely the happier for
So, what is the motive? Think about it. Please think about everything that OUR elected officals are trying to do and have done in the last decade
alone. Connect the dots and do your research. look at the laws which have been passes to "protect you" and to "keep you safe." So many of our
freedoms, the freedoms of law abiding citizens, have been raped and pillaged by our governemnt. Another quote from Jefferson; "I know no safe
depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with
a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education."
I, for one, am sick of it, I've been sick of it. I feel this is nobody's fault but our own for we, as a people and nation, have become so dependant on
our govenment to take care of all of our problems. Again, I will quote Jefferson. "Laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the general
progress of the human mind." In my opinion, most of us have become sheep, we just go with the flow, and we have become so dependent on having others
solve our problems. We have forgotten as a whole what it is to have a backbone. What it means to stand up for yourself and protect your freedoms. TO
ENSURE YOUR LIBERTY! The laws of the land are changing to the will of the people because the people have lost their will.
Although, I agree that law abiding citizens have no reason to fear a background check, I stand firm in my belief that more stingent background checks
will NOT keep guns out of the hands of maniacs who intend to do harm. If some freak wants a gun, the freak will find a gun. Making new laws will NEVER
change that. We don't need NEW laws, we to to better enforce the laws we already have. I feel like we, as a nation, need to wake up to the real
threat. That threat is a government gone wild, a government who wants pure control. WE NEED TO QUIT LIVING IN FEAR!! Two more quotes here from
Jefferson: "Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on
her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the
homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear." and "The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its
free expression should be our first object."
We need to wake up. We need to take our government back. We need to ensure democracy lives. Your governement isn't going to do that for you. Only YOU
can change this because they won't do it for you. I urge all of you to write your representitives and take your country back from a government out of
control. Jefferson was a smart man and this will be my last quote. "We in America do not have government by the majority. We have government by the
majority who participate."
