“All we say to America is, “Be true to what you said on paper.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
In what alternate universe do people of the USA live when they go against personal protection from foreign or domestic by ignoring their 2nd Amendment rights?
Don’t call them ” Gun Nuts ” with a Government like ours we’d be ” Nuts ” not to have Guns…
My freedoms are not a “Party”.. I party because I still have a few freedoms.
Incredible as it may seem the courts have ruled that the police are not obligated to even respond to your calls for help, even in life threatening situations. Police do very little to prevent violent crime. They investigate crime after the fact.
I am a concerned American citizen fed up with intrusive government, manipulation by an unjust system of taxation, and an apathetic American populace duped by the liberal socialist lies of the mainstream media and cultural elites. For the past thirty plus years our society has increasingly rejected personal responsibility and truth in favor of political correctness and blame shifting. I clearly understand my unpopular position on these issues but feel it necessary to do something to balance the widespread deception so I don’t become a victim as well.
Last time I checked, we do still live in a democratic, Republic and capitalistic society where any industry has the same right as you and I to operate a legal business and make a profit from that business as well as allowing it’s employees to vote for union representation. Sadly, in the past several decades, there has been a methodical effort to shift America from its capitalistic roots to one of Socialism which has nothing to do with unions. It is, I believe, this Socialist movement that fuels much of the contention today with industry. And, it is this socialistic move in America that I most vigorously resist.
My message is a warning to all truth-seeking, freedom-loving patriots of the impending sell-out of the United States of America by the powerful contemporary “money changers” to a One World Socialist Government.
My friends, your future is at stake here, your children’s future is on the line. Unless the freedom-loving, law-abiding citizens of America stand up and demand truth and accountability from its political and cultural leaders this country will soon cease to be the Home of the Brave and the Land of the Free.
Political Views? something has to change in this country or we wont be one.
I cannot support any candidate mainly due to the double talk all Politicians bring to the elections. 90% bullshit! I can say of anyone out there running in 2012, I Liked Ron Paul for change. How could you not want to push a candidate that believes in less Government in our lives, flat tax, ending the FED and ending the IRS as well as war on drugs that has been a total fail and just another cashcow for Government! well, unless you want to play old washington politics and keep screwing the people and imprisoning non violent crimes with another few million Americans. How much is that costing the average American to support?
“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” – Benjamin Franklin
If your an actual worker paying taxes it is time to speak up! We are a step away from Socialism in this country. If your tired of programs to help others by taking money out of your pocket and away from your family please VOTE responsibly this time around! Enough of the smiles and broken promises. Enough of the politicans! Enough of the hand outs when it’s your money Washington is handing out while they keep making more than the average American and voting for their OWN programs! Enough is Enough! Your ONE vote does count!
“I sincerely believe, with you, that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.” ~ Thomas Jefferson
I just love this “Fender” Design. Let us think about this a minute. An American Icon Leo Fender created a few American Guitars known on sight alone (Telecaster, Stratocaster) and loved by Americans. Leo gets sick and sells to CBS thinking the end is near. This company got rich off the American people in many media ways and music is no stranger. So, they wanted a bigger profit and to expand once Leo was out of the way. So, time passes and the “CBS employees” get together and buy it to restore the name!
They see the dollar signs and forget the “Iconic” name and their quest. They start making them in Mexico with cheaper labor costs and still brag about the American “Iconic” Fender. Now, they take it to China for even bigger profits. The American “Icons” are becoming more foreign every day. They forget the roots after WWII that began this Iconic Company. Begining in a society that protected them from foreign invasion so they could make their vision come true. Only to choose greed over country? or do they try to break a profit after our Government allows the flood of foreign products? while limiting use of woods here in America? Who will protect them in the future when their plants are no longer in America at all, like other industries? Amazing how this works huh, and Americans have no jobs and no money to buy the products. This Kozik design is not to far off of what the real future Amerika is becoming, unless we vote out all the criminals in Washington.
For a bit of history, The last true Fenders are made till 1965 when Columbia Broadcasting System(CBS) buys it from an unhealthy Leo Fender. In 1985 the CBS employees buy it, its no longer Fender in anything but name. It’s a Corporation making money and eating up all the little guitar companies.
Leo came back and became President of MusicMan years later when his health improved. He also started G&L Musical Instruments with George Fullerton, long time friend and employee back in 1948. His son, Geoff Fullerton is a builder at the Fender Custom Shop in Corona, California. Please, if you can afford it.. buy a “vintage” Fender. or at least BUY American Made, because The future is stupid!
Another strange irony is the fact, Fenders are known as electric guitars. This is acoustic. No power at all, just a hollowed out shell of its past. Another look at the future of our Country? if we don’t wake up and stop these entitlement programs, taxation out of control, debt out of control and Government controling EVERYTHING we do?
But anyways… Please hold tight your 2nd Amendment.. may no man or group of men ever blind you the reasoning of the 2nd Amendment nor to who it holds the right to.
The Second Amendment to the American Constitution is familiar to many of us: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Along with the other nine initial amendments, collectively known as the Bill of Rights, the Second Amendment was ratified by ten of the original thirteen States on December 15, 1791. (1)
The words “well regulated” mean well-equipped in terms of uniform and armament. The militia’s armament should be fully manned, sighted-in and ready. According to the U.S. Code, the word “Militia” means what is now called the “unorganized militia”, i.e., “all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and… who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.” (2) During Virginia’s ratification convention in 1788, Founding Father George Mason said: “I ask, who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers.” (3) Similar statements were made by Founders James Madison and Richard Henry Lee. Mason worried that someday only a privileged class of men would bear arms, resulting in tyranny. Mason also said: “the best and most effectual way to enslave” a nation is “to disarm the people.” (4)
The Second Amendment was intended to be the ultimate check against a tyrannical state. In a real sense, it is the right of revolution built into the Constitution—becoming the foremost guarantor of all other rights and the Constitution itself. Neither the legislature nor the executive may abridge its effect. Accordingly, the United States Supreme Court has ruled: “All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” (5) Thomas Jefferson highly prized an armed citizenry, (6) and wanted to instill a permanent spirit of resistance within the American people. In his letter to William S. Smith on November 13, 1787, Jefferson wrote: “What country before ever existed a century & half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve it’s [sic] liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. It is it’s [sic] natural manure.”
Tench Coxe, an active political figure before and after the American Revolution, was clear regarding the intentions of the Founders with respect to bearing arms. He wrote in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette on June 18, 1789: “As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their powers to the injury of their fellow-citizens, the people are confirmed by the next article [the Second Amendment] in their right to keep and bear their private arms.” (7)
In his proposed Virginia constitution (June 1776), Jefferson wrote: “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” Samuel Adams and other Founders agreed. Richard Henry Lee, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, stated: “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms.”8 Alexander Hamilton agreed in The Federalist Papers (no. 29) that a well-trained and well-armed citizenry would provide a check against tyranny. “[I]f circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights and those of their fellow-citizens.”
It is clear what the Founders had in mind by the Second Amendment. The question that remains for Christians is whether or not they can apply it to their activities and still be righteous. May a Christian join in resisting the state (1) generally or (2) particularly in America because the Second Amendment allows him to do so? I would answer both questions with the affirmative. One reason that the Apostles did not attack the Roman state was because they lacked the wherewithal to do so. Unlike the American Founders, they did not have the military strength to attempt such an overthrow. They also did not have a Second Amendment to back them up. I have previously argued that Christians may “rebel” against tyrannical states when it is wise, prudent, and feasible to do so. And this fact is further enhanced by the existence of the Second Amendment.
The Bible is the Christian’s final authority for faith and practice. It says that Christians must passively submit to “rulers”, “kings”, and “governors” (Romans 13:3; 1 Peter 2:13-14). However, what happens when lower rulers are traitors to the highest ruler and supreme authority of the land? Regardless of whether or not a strong case can be made for Christian resistance against tyrants without the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, surely a case can be made for Christian resistance with them.
The Second Amendment injects a form of built-in “rebellion” into the American system, which the Apostles did not enjoy while living under Roman rule. Indeed, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights have imbued all Americans (including Christians) with the hallowed right of revolution. If Christian obedience to the civil authority entails primary obedience to the American Constitution, then this fact ought to have far-reaching ramifications for the way believers interact with their culture.

(6) “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” (Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book, 1774-1776 [quoting from Cesare Beccaria’s On Crime and Punishment (1764)]).
(7) Tench Coxe, “Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution” (writing under the pseudonym “A Pennsylvanian”), Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789, page 2, col. 1. Coxe also said: “Congress has no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American…The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state government, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people” (Pennsylvania Gazette , Feb. 20, 1788).
