The 800 lb Gorilla In The Room
The unalienable rights making up the liberty and freedom embodied in the name “America” are being eroded and out rightly eliminated at an alarming rate. Congress is currently fast tracking the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, along with all those specifically enumerated rights protected by the Constitution and the Bill Of Rights, into extinction.
Governmental abuse and corruption has become so institutionalized, commonplace and tolerated, it operates with virtual impunity within the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches, despite being in plain view.
What hope is there for America…? Let me preface my answer with this statement: America was not founded by cowards, nor will it be kept by cowards.
Currently America is populated with an overabundance of fearful, fat & lazy, apathetic and complacent cowards. Duty, honor and integrity; founding elements of America, are now just simply words. Will we force our children and grandchildren to fix what needs fixing…? We are RAPIDLY running out of time.
The 800 lb gorilla in the room, that nobody wants to talk about, is this: How close are we to having to exercise our constitutional right guaranteed by the Second Amendment – for its original intent? If alive today, Thomas Jefferson would have undoubtedly, before now, published anew his “Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking Up Arms”.
“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.” - Thomas Jefferson
Government is force. Without force, or the threat of force, government is impotent and ineffectual. That is why the police and military carry guns. That is why “We The People” were given the Second Amendment.
