Defend gun rights
Loudly proclaim that you don’t care what some rigged politburo and its media propaganda arm insist upon, because they lack legal authority to take away an unalienable right, no matter what they can get some politicized activist court to say — a right, incidentally, Obama would of course keep for himself (though he doesn’t need get his own hands dirty, naturally), and one that his children, and the children of many of his prominent media enablers, enjoy.
Refuse to give up your natural right to protect yourself or your family from those criminals who will remain unaffected by any governmental usurpation of your individual rights — including making concessions on the cosmetic features of the weapons you own, or the capacity in their magazines. You’ll just be setting yourself up for the slaughter, or at the very least, hoping that it doesn’t happen to you and yours.
Facts, common sense, and the Constitution are on our side. The left and the gun-control lobby, for their part, have ginned up demagoguery, emotionalism, an all-out propaganda and shake-down effort, and a willing imperial executive who demonstrably despises the Constitution — and We the People — on theirs.
This is a fight we can not afford to lose. And we should be prepared to make that clear, for our children and our children’s children.
The Republicans in DC have remained largely silent. Predictably. Pragmatically. After all, to speak up means they’re for the killing of little children! And that’s not who they are, no sir! Besides, what’s wrong with some healthy compromise?
It’s time we face facts: their opposition to big government is, among the establishment, a GOP party pose — a bit of theater to pretend that we still have a two-party representative republic, a way to raise money and bilk those who refuse to acquiesce overtly to the statist agenda and, desperate, go looking for a voice in government. Like the Democrats, the establishment GOP is about one thing: coming up with ways to win elections and secure power. That they are remarkably bad at it is just a final bit of delicious irony.
note: I have an appointment with a sports medicine doctor today to try to get my hand fixed. I haven’t been able to do much of anything since before Thanskgiving, and I’d hoped that rest would heal whatever it is I did to my left hand and wrist. No dice.
