You mean like the Democrats?
And not to put too fine a point on it, but the federal government has no authority to license firearm dealers, either.
Great letter, Andy!
Too hot for you with a Constitutionalist in the room, isn't it? Leftists always would prefer people who speak the truth to go home lest those sandbagging the forum learn the truth.
Sure we do. They are the descendants of the same people we fought off in the American Revolution, the people to whom Great Britain was at that time and is now a wholly-owned subsidiary, just as we are now, since 1913. I.E., the same people trying to sell us the totalitarian crock known as socialism, whose practitioners refer to themselves as Progressives and who want to regress our nation to the status of feudal satrapy under their control. The same people Andrew Jackson threw out of our country with extreme prejudice, and who swore to get even. The same people backing Progressive Democratic candidates and Republicans In Name Only who vote more like Democrats than the Democrats. The same people who refuse to count the caucus votes in those legislative districts where strict Constitutionalists receive majority votes, as happened to Ron Paul in the last two elections. The same people leading fools around by the nose and promising them largesse from the federal treasury and the producing taxpayers if they will support illegal immigration to infest our nation with millions of new voters who haven't the faintest clue what makes our nation free. The same fools who rammed a total incompetent non-citizen Marxist apparatchik with Muslim overtones into the White House as President along with the former Deputy Chief of Staff of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, for crying out loud, as his backroom mentor and political officer. All with the object of destroying the first nation in 25 centuries to establish private liberty as superior to the whim of kings and princes and wannabes like Hussein ... er, Obama. Gee, I wish I could just come right out with what I mean, don't you?
Excellent, J.B. While some may consider it "conspiracy theory," the evidence of a long train of abuses and usurpations makes it very clear the trend toward eviscerating the United States Constitution is not merely accidental, not merely random examples of isolated corruptions, but is a concerted, orchestrated attempt by very, very powerful cabals of people who simply cannot abide the existence of a society whose members are, or regard themselves to be, secure from their unrestrained power. Liberty under the rule of law sticks in their craw. It is an affront to their self-perceived superiority, and they are constantly working to undermine it. The Tenth Amendment , if enforced properly according to its plain English meaning, would be their death knell and the restoration of our Constitutional government, including a monetary system of intrinsic value, the recognition of the unratified fraud of the 16th and 17th Amendments, and a return to the prosperity of the first 100 years of our nation's history. It was during this period of time, according the to book "1900" published in that year, that "the living standard, health, wealth, education, and liberty from tyranny and oppression of the average working man, woman, and child improved more than it had during the previous 25 centuries." My personal view is that we do not need a Constitutional Convention in view of the fact the one we have is ignored anyway and there is no reason to believe a new amendment would fare any better. What we need is for government to act exclusively within the constraints of the one we have, and for agents, legislators, and judges who do not to spend time in the Graybar Hotel.
Thank you, Andrew. This is definitely an area in which we are part of the solution or we are part of the problem.
Excellent. And the Second Amendment is included to recognize the pre-existing right of the people to keep it that way. Thank you, Miss Grassel.
Well, unfortunately, while Thomas Jefferson did say "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.", I don't believe I have ever seen any record of him advancing the cause of "Democracy." Like the rest of the founding fathers, including the principal author of the Constitution James Madison, Jefferson believed Democracy -- rule by the majority -- was no less a tyranny and dictatorship than rule by an all-powerful king, or oligarchy, or dynasty, or aristocracy.
Not to get too far ahead of you, Wilma, but the United States of America was never established as a democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic with our representatives chosen by democratic vote, but the majority has no authority (as it does in a democracy) to deprive any minority of their fundamental rights. That is, we are supposed to be a Constitutional Republic, but first we have to require government to obey the Constitution and the rule of law, instead of devolving into the rogue occupation government we have now.
Uh ... Suzanne? Are you, like so very many low-information voters, assuming that the purpose of a legislator in the State government is to hold your hand, create jobs out of nothing, create free health care staffed by medical professionals willing to work without pay, and deprive you of your fundamental God-given right to self-defense against criminals and, en extremis, against tyrants in government? If so, you must be a Democrat, a socialist, or you must have been suckered in by one of these liars.
Here's a newsflash, Suzanne: Brenda Barton, Sylvia Allen, and Bob Thorpe ain't your momma and dada. It's not their job to bail you out from your ill-advised life decisions or the ill-advised economic decisions of others once your hurt has been experienced. It IS their job to protect, expand, and enhance your rights to make your own way in this world and be responsible for the consequences.
Or would you rather be fed, clothed, sheltered, transported, educated, medicated, and even entertained at the expense of taxpayers? If so, be careful what you wish for: All those things are available to the inmates of Florence Correctional Institute.
As for me, I'll take liberty and the responsibility for myself that goes with it. How 'bout you?
