An Advanced Placement history textbook used at Guyer High School in Denton, Texas has a brand new 2nd Amendment for students to absorb. Apparently the Founders were all wrong in the edition they added to the Bill of Rights.
Actual 2nd Amendment: “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.”
Textbook version: “The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.”
Obviously not simply a mistake, this goes well beyond being disgraceful. Who does the purchasing of textbooks for Guyer and other schools in Texas? In how many school districts will this dangerous text be found? Dangerous because it’s an obvious attempt to brainwash teens–impressionable kids. And this being an AP text, the attempt is clearly being made against the schools BEST students!

“The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.” (1)
For more than a century, members of Washington DC’s political ruling class have treated the American people–the true sovereigns of this nation–like subjects, useful only on Election Day and for the payment of unsustainable obligations. These self-anointed patricians have abused the authority of their office and of the Constitution while dramatically expanding the size of a government whose powers the Founders had sought to define, enumerate and constrain. Unfortunately, our elected representatives discovered that as the power of government grows, so does their own.
Two hundred years ago it was the People who demanded a manageable central government based upon a Constitution–a legal document– which would prevent that government running roughshod over the governed. During … Continue Reading:“We the People” are America’s sovereigns, NOT her subjects

A nationwide flu outbreak could be a sufficient excuse to call up the National Guard Rapid Response Parallel support module to take control of a “national emergency” with possible declaration of martial law protocols. According to a North Carolina police lieutenant, in some three to six months declarations of martial law could be made throughout the nation. In a two part radio broadcast aired by a Virginia pastor, Lieutenant McCoy has attracted the attention of more than 20,000 listeners. “We’re in huge trouble,” he says as he calls up memories of white, granite gravestones all over Europe; gravestones marking the final resting place of veterans who died “for us” during World War II. (1)
Tragically, many of our veterans are now referred to as potential “domestic terrorists” by President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security. Men who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan have been declared “risks” should they choose to purchase a firearm for private … Continue Reading:FEMA and the National Guard–working for or against the American public?

The Republicans in Congress look like they are about to sell us out on the question of protecting the Second Amendment. The way they took a dive on the “fiscal cliff” gives us an idea of what they will probably do when confronted with Barack Obama’s fearsome attacks on gun ownership. They won’t listen to us. They will jump as high as the media and Obama tells them to and count themselves lucky if they aren’t singled out as a Hillbilly and an ogre for opposing “common sense” gun control.
According to a newly released report, based on the results of a major sampling of conservatives–the kind of people who vote in Republican primaries–if this scenario plays out many Republicans might be in for a rude awakening.
The survey on attitudes toward the Second Amendment was conducted by The Blaze a website run by Glenn Beck. The 106 questions it posed … Continue Reading:Republicans take note: Don’t sell us out on protecting the 2nd Amendment or you’ll be sorry

Though it’s doubtful anyone will hear much about it, neither lawmakers, judges or even a president has the constitutional authority to infringe upon the inalienable right of the American people to keep and bear arms.
One hundred thirty eight years ago, the Supreme Court wrote that the right to keep and bear arms “…is not a right granted by the Constitution. Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence.” (1)
The case was the United States v Cruikshank and the Court made it clear that the right to keep and bear arms is an inalienable right, God-given and independent of any mandatory approbation by men or their laws for its force and legitimacy
The Founders were so certain as to the absolute nature of these inalienable rights in the Bill of Rights that Alexander Hamilton suggested in Federalist No. 84 that it was unnecessary even … Continue Reading:It’s time patriots declare Victory in the 2nd Amendment war
