Despite repeated lies during his election campaigns, the American people are slowly waking up to the fact that Obama is doing his unconstitutional best to “transform” our nation – into a Third World dictatorship. In order to effectively do that in a nation where the FBI estimates that formerly free citizens possess some 200,000,000 guns, he needs to find some way of neutralizing that threat to his usurpation of power.
America is not like Afghanistan; people are generally law abiding citizens who possess guns for many reasons, none of which have anything to do with violent overthrow of the government.
A casual foray through the news channels on your TV will give you some idea of the atrocities that are taking place by governments and by those who would govern on a daily basis throughout the Middle East, particularly if you happen to be Christian. However, it is not necessary to look beyond our shores.
It was just announced that two Fullerton, CA, cops who beat a mentally ill homeless man to death in 2011 have been found not guilty, and a third cop will not even be prosecuted. If you have a strong stomach, look at this photo of the man in the hospital.
I would have thought that a jury would have had a hard time attributing this to self-defense on the part of the officers, but then, what do I know?
Although it may come as a news flash to the Left, the Founding Fathers did not write the Second Amendment to the Constitution for duck hunters. It was put there precisely to help us preserve our God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in case the government decides to try to take them away.
Tyrants know this, despite the verbal smokescreen they lay down, and that is why they always concentrate on “gun control” as their number one priority. Obama and his administration daily walk all over the Constitution by selectively enforcing only the laws they like, and by inventing myriad regulations that have the force of law without any legislative process.
Just this week, Obama announced that he has assumed dictatorial powers. He has decided to dispense with the Legislative Branch, promising to “act” without Congress. Obama told his Cabinet, “We are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we are providing Americans the kind of help that they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone.”
If this sounds like Jan 3, 1925 when Mussolini dissolved the Italian Parliament to assume dictatorial powers, you were paying attention in history class. We have a Congress in Washington, but maybe Obama’s idea of budget cuts would be to send them home, since he has taken over their job anyway.
Obama has not announced that he is sending Homeland Security agents door to door to collect your guns – yet. What he is doing instead is regulating them out of your hands little by little. One of the problems we face in America, and in the world in general, is an increase in crazy behavior.
The Left has been doing everything they can to destroy the family and decency in general for the last hundred years (yes, it started before the ‘60’s), so we have many people who are without a moral compass. As a result, we see not only an increase in the number of crimes, but in their viciousness.
While a rational person might think that this is a reason to arm himself, and increased gun sales certainly affirm that there are still many rational people left, Obama and his cronies would have you believe that the opposite is true – that your security depends on turning in your guns an “leaving the driving to us”, as the old Greyhound commercials used to say. Ask the dead homeless man, or the victims in school gun-free zones, how that worked out for them.
Nevertheless, Obama continues to roll out the executive orders and regulations. Since he had his “signature” legislation, ObamaCare, passed by the democrat-controlled Congress in his first term he has been using it to further his actual “signature” agenda, which include abortion and gun control. The latest proposal – from HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius – is to violate federal health privacy laws (HIPAA) when it comes to the Second Amendment.
Everyone knows by now the extent to which Obama’s people are collecting your phone and Internet records without probable cause, so it should be no surprise that they intend to peer into your medical records to fatten their Orwellian government database on every American.
Sibelius’ buddy Attorney General Eric Holder – currently being pursued for contempt of Congress and the author of Fast and Furious – intends to seize guns from persons subject to “outpatient commitments (even without a court order) (and) … someone (deemed by some bureaucrat to be) lacking mental responsibility or deemed insane…”
Since ObamaCare sets the stage for compiling a national health database, it can easily be trolled by the FBI, NSA, Homeland Security, police agencies, and anyone else to strip tens of millions of Americans of their Second Amendment rights.
As the NRA reports, more than 150,000 law-abiding veterans have already lost their constitutional rights – with no due process whatsoever – because they consulted a VA therapist about a traumatic incident in Iraq, Afghanistan, or the Balkans. Under these new regulations, tens of millions of police and firemen with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder — or people who, as kids, were diagnosed with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder — could lose their constitutional rights without any court order, merely because they sought a benefit under a federal program.
But, you say, these people are sick; they are diagnosed with PTSD. To understand what is going on, you have to realize that psychiatric diagnoses are not like taking a biopsy sample of tissue and finding cancer cells. They are really simply political diagnoses. When I was a psychology major as an undergrad, homosexuality was considered a disease.
Shortly after, the APA decided it wasn’t a disease any longer; it was an “alternate lifestyle”. Now, we have a new disease, “homophobia”, which is apparently so bad that we have outlawed it, and people can lose their jobs and face prosecution for having it. How long will it take for the government to decree that gun ownership is a symptom of a disease?
Our society breeds sick people. Obama and the Left promote the murder of the most helpless among us, and fund the butchers who do this with your tax dollars. Obama and the Left suspend students for eating food into the shape of a gun, but teach them irresponsible and immoral sex in mandatory classes.
When a crime is committed, Obama and the Left are the first to defend the criminal rather than the victim. In fact, if you look at what is happening with the so-called “knockout game”, Obama and Holder have decided that only certain classes of people can even BE victims; the rest of us are simply statistics.
If you are concerned about the direction of the country, and if the country moving toward a dictatorship where “regulations” and executive orders replace laws, and laws are selectively enforced and misinterpreted by judicial fiat, then let your elected representatives know, and insist that they do something about it, before Obama sends them home.
