We are blessed among all the people of the earth to have a document that protects us from our government. It was meant to do that. It was meant to preserve the rights of the people not the rights of the government. It was meant to restrain the government lest it take from us our rights.
Government, both well-meaning and corrupt has been trying to find some way to stop the constitution from stopping them almost from it’s beginning.
We were also blessed beyond our understanding with men who wrote our constitution. They were not perfect men. Some were sinful men. Some owned slaves. But they still managed with all their flaws and imperfections to give us a document that has made us among the freest people to have ever walked the earth. I am grateful for that beyond my ability to articulate.
If you think about our Founding Fathers and then consider the people that comprise our government today it’s a rather stark contrast. A contrast between stature and intellect and honesty. What we cannot seem to stop ourselves from electing people with little character, little honesty and little concern for the country or “We The People”.
Yes, here and there, seemingly by accident, some voters manage to elect and send to the nation’s capital a person of stature. A person of honesty and integrity. A person of intellect. Which means that the swarming corrupt media, that was tasked with being the people’s watch dog, will immediately do everything they can to destroy an honest person.
You cannot have honesty and integrity in government without an honest media. We all know that our media is unethical, unscrupulous, untrustworthy. And they know that we, for the most part feel that way. And nothing changes in their refusal to report instead of propagandize.
As the left and some on the right seek to change the Constitution the media is heavily on the side of those who would destroy it. That is because most in the media are liberals and liberals don’t want people to have the information to make an honest decision. In other words they really are against choice.
The current oath was enacted in 1884:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
How many elected officials do you think take that oath seriously? How many are people of their word? How many are people of honesty and integrity? How many simply mouth the words, as they mouth their campaign promises and know they have no intention of keeping either the promises or the oath. They are, with far too few exceptions, soulless people. People without honor.
The left would do away with the Constitution entirely if they had their way. It gets in the way, in so many ways of their agenda. It is however the 2nd Amendment that they think will get their foot in the door of destruction.
The 2nd Amendment has been under assault from the left for 50 years. You don’t need to be a scholar to see that. All you need to do is open you eyes and pay attention whenever some Terrorist strikes with our borders. The bodies hardly hit the floor before the Media, Democrats and the Idiot in the White House are out playing politics. Often before the blood has time to coagulate.
Decent citizens should be repulsed by their actions. Informed citizens might wonder why the Media, Democrats and the idiot in the White House blame the gun and not the person holding it.
Why no outrage from the media, the Democrats and the idiot in the White House about the murders that happen every day in Chicago? Chicago has been under Democrat control most of the last 100 years. Chicago is one of the most gun law controlled cities in the country. Notice how little attention those murders get from the MSM? Notice how little information about how little those laws have done to protect the citizens of Chicago?
If I was living in Chicago and watched innocents killed I would wonder why my government cares so much about people in other places who get murdered and so little about those murdered in Chicago. Especially when the idiot in the White House was a Jr. Senator from Illinois. What’s with the lack of interest in what happens to the people in his home town?
Could it be that the media and the Democrats and the idiot in the White House have no interest in publicizing what is basically a massive liberal fail just as Detroit was? The only reasons murders are down in Detroit, aka “Murder City” is that it’s 1/2 the size it used to be as everyone that could leave – did leave.
Could it be that if it can’t be exploited and used against the Republicans they simply don’t care what happens to people? Could it be that they need silence on their epic fail at protecting the people in Democrat controlled cities because that doesn’t play into their attempt to convince ignorant people that the Constitution doesn’t’ protect them?
I may be cynical but it sure seems like a plan to me. And one that, if we are not very careful, will work. Never think that once the left has destroyed the 2nd Amendment that they will stop. They must destroy the Constitution to destroy our way of life. And that, is what the Constitution Destroyers really want.
