“True words aren’t eloquent;
eloquent words aren’t true.
Wise men don’t need to prove their point;
men who need to prove their point aren’t wise.”
~Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching, Verse 81
By Alden L. Benton
The current discussion in the nation over the merits or need for gun control has never been about guns.
For the progressive-statist Democrats it is about ripping another page from the Constitution (the Second Amendment) and about control. For Conservatives, it is about maintaining the liberty and personal freedoms guaranteed in that very same Constitution.
The progressive-statist-Democrat complex (PSD) has one goal — total control of the American citizen. Without that control, the PSD cannot implement their grand Utopian fantasy. For the PSD to succeed, they must destroy the freedom and liberty of the individual. To accomplish this in America, you must destroy the Constitution and disarm the population.
The PSD don’t really care about the murder of 20 children at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Rather, they see it as an opportunity to push their subversive agenda just a little farther.
The PSD are smart. They take little steps, slowly inserting their propaganda into our schools, our media, and into our government. While they are working their subversive scheme they ply us with pretty words, never meaning what they say.
The fight is about the Constitution and the founding principles it and the Declaration of Independence lay out. No matter how one feels about the issue of guns in America, every American must defend and protect the Constitution, for if we fail, we will no longer be free to live our lives and fulfill our God-given destinies.
The Constitution is more than a yellowing piece of parchment as the PSD suggest. It is the foundation of our freedom and the blueprint for a limited government that, according to the Declaration of Independence, “derives its just powers from the consent of the governed.”
This is perhaps the most important phrase in the founding documents. This single phrase states simply and clearly that it is all about us — the citizen, the individual. It is this phrase, coupled with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, that gives us power over our government, not, as the PSD believes, the government having the ultimate authority over us.
The president and his PSD cadre of crooks, cronies, and communists, think they have the ultimate power over us. If we continue to let them usurp the powers granted to us, they will continue until we have no power to resist.
With every proposal, every order, the president and his gang are stealing what is ours. With every speech, proposal, or order, they dismantle the Constitution piece by piece until his “fundamental transformation” is complete and Americans are serfs and vassals to the ubiquitous government.
As my friend Russ Schach wrote in a guest post, the operative word in the Constitution is NO.
It is time for Americans to stand up and just say NO to our government.
“Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” ~Thomas Paine
