Jeffrey Lord [American Spectator] called the second inaugural address of Barack Hussein Obama Orwellian, and rightly so. It is a march back to the Marxist illusion of Utopia, where the few rule the many and promise “fairness”. The term Orwellian recently was used Left mouthpiece, Huffington Post, Chicago writer, Rob Warmowski who compares MoveOnand SEIUto Cato Institute. In general, he describes LibertarianismOrwellian. …
The next of Cato’s Orwellian perversions: big business lobbies against campaign finance reform. Campaign financing as it stands is the mechanism of normalized corruption of electoral politics and representative government. It is the implementation of the free market for political results – the only free market libertarians are uncomfortable acknowledging. Without its corruption of our representative democracy, big business has to face paying its taxes, reducing its pollution, economically developing instead of savaging the United States. As such, campaign finance reform is the last thing big business wants touched. Which is why Cato and libertarians are is 110% againstcampaign finance reform.
First of all, he is delusional as to what type of government was set up via Constitution and its amendments. It is a constitutional republic
– not a designed to be a democracy.
Of course, the author is not aware of this, or if he is, just spewing the propaganda that is being programmed in public government-controlled schools.
It is time for Americans to re-educate themselves, sit down and study the Constitution for what it is, the Federalist Papers, which discusses much of what the framers had in mind, and the papers of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James Madison. Read also the Alexander Hamilton papers, but keep in mind his ideology was still in tune with the British system which he used as a model for everything, including the economy of the United States and treasury functions of the newly established government.
said of democratic government with knowledge of its history:
Democracy … while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.
- I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.
- Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.
- The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed, which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation where the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.
- A well-regulated militia composed of the body of the people, trained in arms, is the best most natural defense of a free country. [Switzerland has such a system]
Switzerland has low violent crime rate compared to nation’s without firearms or extremely limited
Part of the bill to be presented in Congress is aiming at the manufacture of certain types of ammunition and limitations upon the amount purchased – as well as banning certain weapons. It has NOTHING to do with reducing crime, because the statistics (FBI annual report) shows a different fact than what the Progressive-Socialists are setting up
. They are on a drive, using emotion to accelerate their agenda and condemning returning veterans who fought THEIR war as unfit gun owners. They are setting the stage to indoctrinate children in schools against firearm ownership and meanwhile fueling foreign disasters. They pervert the Second Amendment, despite the Supreme Court ruling that says differently, and now that Obama has a second term, he has the opportunity to stack the Supreme Court much as FDR did in the 1930s. Once they establish a required registration of firearms the next step will be confiscation. They have lied all along, from campaign promises and declaring that the UN firearm ban is unrelated to our freedom and liberties and right to self-defense and help defend our country if need be. Instead of all this Marxist nonsense, we should be following suit with Switzerland and build a defensive military instead of peacekeepers of the world in nations who do not appreciate our aid.
Comparing the NRA to Nazism has got to be the ultimate insult.
The scary part is that the GOP has a record of spinelessness
and too often can be considered the lesser evil
political entity. Unconstitutional is unconstitutional – there is no way around it. Compromise when possible, but never compromise the constitutional law.
We need leadership who has principles, integrity, and abide by their oaths of office – paying attention to the check-and-balance system created by the Founders.
Constitutionalists like Ron Paul are made to look like a fool and radical by both the Democrats and Republicans. Indeed, constitutionalists are considered “anti-government” which is not true – they are for a constitutional republic, which was created by the framers.
If the GOP had any spine, they would have begun impeachment hearings last year – they certainly had enough to establish one; but now with the Benghazi debacle
being revealed, most certainly so.
Panetta has now allowed women in front-line combat. This is okay as long as the bar of standards are not reduced. Celtic women in Britannia sent Roman soldiers running when they attacked a column of retreating women and children. Israel has women in combat with success. My only concern is lowering standards to allow more women to participate. That would be a big mistake. Kathleen Parker
addressed cons of women in combat
. Of course, it should remain on a volunteer basis.
Very strange at the same moment they are attacking the Second Amendment, they want women to perform combat missions. Will they be considered to be ineligible to exercise their Second Amendment upon their return to civilian life, like they are doing now?
Under every government the last resort of the people, is an appeal to the sword; whether to defend themselves against the open attacks of a foreign enemy, or to check the insidious encroachments of domestic foes. Whenever a people … entrust the defence of their country to a regular, standing army, composed of mercenaries, the power of that country will remain under the direction of the most wealthy citizens.[Restore America Movement]
Just sent over the wire: Feinstein presents bill to ban 158 firearms
. Weapons that hold more than ten rounds will be banned. [See Updated List
] At the same time, they have made the statement against what Obama promised of not taking away firearms for defense, Feinstein and friends state they do not intend to take away guns from hunters and sportsmen – but that is still against the Second Amendment. If law enforcement can have those weapons, so can lawful citizens, those that have no criminal background or are mentally stable. Did anyone ever think that the government may, with the government-controlled healthcare, wrongfully claim that an individual is not mentally capable of owning and using a firearm? It was done in the Soviet Union, as well as silencing dissident citizens.
Our rights and liberties have slipped away in increments because we believed politicians who said, “Oh, this is where we draw the line, we would never go further”. When it comes to the Constitution and your rights and liberties – trust NO ONE.
M1 rifle and its replica partner, the Mini-14, has been a standard collectible rifle in honor of and memory of those who fought in World War II – that rifle is on the ban list. It has been used by American hunters and sport shooters for decades. The same for the BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle) in a semiautomatic version, if one can afford the cost.
It is also written so firearm companies cannot reengineer weapons to bypass the proposed legislation.
The UPI video report linked above, the speaker lied and manipulated information. Less than 1% of all deaths from homicide with firearms since 1992 have been committed with assault firearms. The Left is painting a different picture. It is not the amount, but the horrific tragedy that occurs in mass shootings. Not once has the media presented incidents where citizens saved lives by having a firearm in their home or on their person. They can react quicker than law enforcement can act, who show up after death(s) have already occurred. Law enforcement showed up while crime was being committed in Newton (Sandy Hook), but when the shooter saw the police arrived, he allegedly committed suicide, according to reports. But the reports and eyewitnesses, and even the medical coroner had holes in their statements recognized by a person who made a video about it. It was suspicious, but leaves on wondering without claiming any conspiracy.
Like one blogger stated: Feinstein gun ban is just tip of the iceberg
No Feinstein bill recorded in Congress yet.
Call your senators and representatives – both federal and state officials, let them know that the Constitution will no longer be attacked or ignored — and if so, consider themselves to be on notice for violating their oaths of office.
