You Are Out Of Order

by Bill Martinez,  staff writer
 
William Shakespeare penned the phrase, “To thine own self be true.”  So you are out of order when you are out of integrity with yourself. Order starts with the individual. This is why the U.S. Constitution starts with We The People.
 
The health of an organization or a country is reflected first by its people.  If the people are not realizing or having an opportunity to realize their full human potential, then the seeds of chaos will begin to be planted, and grow.
 
The authority structure has been established to fulfill that ultimate purpose.  The grief-to-happiness ratio shows where citizens of a country, an organization, company or family are based on the fulfillment of this purpose.
 
In any part and aspect of life, if we are not realizing our purpose or at least having a shot at it, we begin to get uncomfortable.  Being uncomfortable will eventually lead to a decision to do something different or to surrender and violate the first principle of being true to ourselves.
 
Disappointment, delusion and disgust will leave us vulnerable to look outside of ourselves and give up.  Looking outside of ourselves surrenders responsibility in every area of our lives.  “It’s not my fault” becomes the mantra.
 
These are the words of a sold out “people group.”  Unfortunately, you find them in too many families and organizations in the United States today.  It is the language of the surrendered and the dependent who fundamentally want to go back to the period before this country declared its independence when most areas of their lives were controlled by England.
 
But Americans longed to be free, setting the stage for the first American Revolution, when a rag tag army of farmers with the least impressive array weaponry took on the most powerful military on the planet at that time.  These early citizens understood that freedom came with a price and they were more than willing to give it all, including their lives to be free and to see their children would also be free.
 
The question before us this day: Is it time to exercise that remedy with a Second American Revolution?  Our government has become the imperialist giant that once enslaved the Colonies.  Our bloated government has been absorbing our hard earned resources to support its own interests, not ours. 
 
 Is it time for We the People to remember the seeds of our beginnings by launching a revolt to get our country “back on track?”  Imagine an additional 10-20-40 years of the entitlement trajectory that we are presently on…where will America be then? 
 
The battle is raging for the heart and soul of this once great nation.  It is time to reclaim what is rightfully ours.  This is a war that we did not start, but it is a war in which we must fully engage before it’s too late.  It is time that We The People take back our nation, our heritage and our culture from the Big Government, Big Brother types who no longer view our birthright as the land of the free and home of the brave.  Are you ready America?

Americans will never surrender their 2nd Amendment rights

 by Doug Book,  staff writer

“The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”  This fervent hope was expressed in 1788 by Continental Congressman Tench Coxe of Pennsylvania.   (1)

During the more than 200 years since ratification of the United States Constitution, no God given right has been assailed by a more determined opposition than the right to keep and bear arms. Gun owners have been threatened with fines and imprisonment for wishing to defend family and property.  In Connecticut, law abiding Americans were rendered defenseless by state statute, their slaughter knowingly and deliberately facilitated by politicians interested only in the implementation of an anti-gun agenda.

And now, the Sandy Hook killings have prompted calls to ban “assault weapons;” the firearms with which the American people can most effectively defend life and liberty.

A horrified left maintains private ownership of these rifles must end because such weapons are meant only for killing!  But self-important, nanny state elitists apparently don’t understand that the principle purpose of ALL firearms is killing.  For nothing is of greater importance than the defense of life, property and liberty and it was in the interest of preserving these things that weapons have been made more dependable and efficient over the centuries.

Yet our capacity to defend life and liberty is now to be statutorily tempered by those who believe the American people cannot be trusted with the most effective and deadly weapons. Rather, the left “…want us to believe that so long as we can own some kind of firearm, after our semi-auto military rifles are taken, we are not disarmed.” (2)

Shortly after the battles of Lexington and Concord, Samuel Adams addressed turncoats who had assisted British troops in an attempt to confiscate powder and weapons from the colonists:

“If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”  (3)

Never were cowards and traitors more eloquently dismissed from the company of patriots.

Unfortunately, cowards and traitors exist now as in Adams’ day: cowards willing to surrender their weapons to a tyrannical state and traitors willing to surrender the rights of other Americans.

But patriots will overcome the treachery of these individuals and resist the efforts of a corrupt government to enslave the American public by refusing to obey any law which further intrudes on our 2nd Amendment rights. Be it a ban on gun ownership or attempt at outright confiscation, the duty of Americans will be to resist and fight, never comply.

Two hundred years ago, Americans won a war against tyrants by refusing to be disarmed. We’ll win the next war in the very same way.

Are American patriots obligated to take up arms against would-be tyrants?

by Doug Book,  staff writer

In 1833, thirty four year member of the Supreme Court, Joseph Story, wrote: “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic.” (1)

That “palladium of liberties” has never been exercised more frequently than during the four years Barack Hussein Obama has been in the White House. According to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), “…the top 10 record gun sales days have occurred since Barack Obama’s election in 2008, and gun ownership has skyrocketed over the last four years.”  (2)

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) reports that in 1944 there were approximately 192 million firearms owned by 44 million Americans. By the end of 1996, the ATF reports that “…approximately 242 million firearms were available for sale to or were possessed by civilians in the United States.”  In 2007, that number had increased to 294 million. Clearly there are now well over 300 million firearms in the hands of  American citizens, all thanks to concern that the far-left Administration is a threat to 2nd Amendment and other rights of the American people. (3)

A week ago, Mark Alexander of The Patriot Post was asked “…if Patriots have an obligation to arm themselves — to be gun owners, and be proficient at the use of arms.” He responds by saying it is “self-evident” that Liberty is an “unalienable right,” innately assured as “endowed by our creator…” That is, “it is not awarded by men or government; it is the birthright of all people.” (2)

Throughout history, countless individuals have assaulted those rights “…using the power of government to arbitrarily revoke Liberty and invoke tyranny…” In defense of that liberty, James Madison wrote in the Federalist # 46, that “the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition.” (2)

Barack Obama has proven himself a would-be dictator in virtually every executive order and end-run around the authority of the Congress. But his ambition for unlimited presidential power can only be fully realized upon the disarming of the American public. Understanding this, millions of Americans have armed themselves in anticipation of an eventual, outright ban on gun ownership.

But as Americans, are we compelled to do more than just own firearms? Are we also obligated, as a result of our unique heritage, to USE those weapons against any force which threatens the annihilation of our rights and liberty?

Two hundred and forty years ago, approximately one third of colonists took up arms against the British, one third joined the Brits against the revolution and the rest remained neutral. After two centuries of American history and the death of countless men in battle for the preservation of the rights and liberty earned in the Revolution, the time for neutrality or for joining those who would destroy that liberty is over.

Just as millions of arms have been collected in anticipation of an Obama led assault on our God given rights, it is incumbent upon Americans to use those arms when the time comes. Those who refuse to do so will no longer be Americans, they will be the enemy.

Do “We the People” have the right of Revolution?

 By Doug Book, staff writer

 Do the citizens of the United States have an absolute right to,  by force of arms if necessary,  overthrow a government which has,  with malicious deliberation,  become destructive of those ideals of liberty granted by God and guaranteed by instruments such as the Constitution of the Unites States?

 Clearly the Founders believed in the existence of such a right. There could be no more axiomatic example than the American Revolution itself!

 And though these men warned against pursuing such a course for  “light and transient causes”,  rightly observing that  “…mankind are more disposed to suffer…than right themselves by abolishing forms to which they are accustomed,”  the Declaration of Independence states without reservation that if any government should become  “destructive”  of its proper role,  it is the right of the citizens to  “…alter or abolish it and institute new government…”  

 The left is quick to maintain that anyone suggesting the American people have a right to reclaim country or liberty,  even from those who have deliberately and with malevolent purpose represented a mortal threat to both,  is little more than a wanton terrorist,  his words being responsible for every act of violence from Oklahoma City to Tucson.

 But if this is the case,  we modern day  “domestic terrorists”  are in the best of company. For in the Declaration of Independence,  Thomas Jefferson set down a number of abuses which King George had heaped upon the American colonies,  among them:

 “He has refused his Assent to Laws,  the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.”

 “He has erected a multitude of New Offices,  and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.”

 “He has excited domestic insurrections against us…”

 Was Jefferson a terrorist for relating these truths about the mistreatment of American colonists by the King of England and for exhorting the people to do something about it?

 Though times change,  the villainy of tyrants does not. Look at the striking similarities over the centuries between the actions of George the III and those of Barack the First.

 Obama too has  “refused his Assent to Laws”,  working to have the Arizona immigration law overturned and forbidding the Executive branch to enforce current federal immigration statutes.

 He has  “erected a multitude of New Offices”,  creating czars whose control over the American public is indisputable,  yet over whom the people have no authority or recourse. So many in, fact that his own Vice President obviously couldn’t name them all.

 And Obama has also  “excited domestic insurrections“  against the American public,  ordering his minions to shut down radio programs critical of his policies and telling supporters to argue with his detractors and  “get in their face.”  

 And what can be said of a President who suggests his followers  “bring a gun“  to confront Republicans and their political backers. 

 Do the American people have the right to overthrow a tyrant?  Damned right we have! And rather than members of the Continental Congress directing the fight,  today it will be the people leading their legislators and probably warning them to stay out of the way or be run over.

 Most of us will live to see it. Many will take part. And you can bet that we will win.
