Tell Me Who To Shoot

"Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step over the ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! -- All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a Thousand years. At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."
- Abraham Lincoln, 1838
In due course, with no more than minor brush wars unfelt by any but the poor blokes who get killed in them, the United States will find itself in a situation where the simplest, easiest, and safest thing to do will be to surrender. Maybe it won't be called surrender--maybe it will be called a "realistic accommodation" by the editorial writers that year--or a "treaty of non-aggression with commercial agreements for mutual trade"--or anything. The name doesn't matter; the idea is that the Kremlin will be giving the orders here rather than Washington.
- Robert A. Heinlein, 1961
The revolution is upon us. It has been for quite some time. My compatriots are prepared for the worst. As am I. We are prepared for the day that the UN or even our own government comes for our guns. Or perhaps an invasion from Russia or China.
Lucky day we're not holding our breath.
The invasion has begun. But it's no communist army from halfway around the globe pummeling us with artillery and marching on Washington. It has come in a much more insidious form. A fifth column. The socialization of America is well under way. Our very own democratic system is being used against us and there seems to be no stopping it.
It's been happening for decades. 15,000 come in through JFK alone every day. This influx is not that which made this country what it was in the beginning. These are not the freedom-seeking, hard-working immigrants upon whose backs this great "Melting Pot" of a Nation was built. No longer. The government hand-out programs of today summon the very dregs of the Earth to our shores and the socialists in our government welcome those dependents with open arms. And we foot the bill.
They become citizens and they VOTE for socialists. And these socialists write provisions that side-step our Constitution and allow for even more to come and VOTE. They write provisions for those of us who produce to financially support those who don't. They write provisions for restricting our means of self-defense. They write provisions that force us to become dependent on the government. They write provisions which allow them to be more and more intrusive in every facet of our lives.
And they ignore the Bill of Rights.
I'd love to be able to say that those who are destroying our Constitution have simply never read it, and if we could just point out to them that Firearms Licenses, Carry Permits and "Assault Weapons" Bans are all contrary to the Second Amendment, they'd set things right immediately.
They are not stupid. They are quite intelligent and they know exactly what they are doing.
They make it increasingly more difficult for the average American Citizen to obtain and own firearms. Occasionally they go as far as to arrest one of us for some infraction of a useless law written to "keep guns out of the hands of criminals". There have even been isolated instances of federal agents having armed conflicts with citizens who refused to roll over when BATF came knocking. And not a peep from the 83 some-odd million gun owners. Oh, yes, plenty of outrage. More than enough grumbling amongst ourselves about it.
But no uprising, no show of force.
Let me tell you something. Writing and calling your so-called representatives does absolutely nothing. Supporting the NRA does absolutely nothing. Signing petitions does absolutely nothing. The people who are running this country don't give a fat rat's ass what you want, or what the Constitution says. They are operating outside of the Law of the Land and need to be removed. Republicans are no better than democrats. The democrats may be a little more dangerous, but they are both headed in the same direction. If you think for one minute that a republican is going to repeal any unconstitutional gun laws, you're only kidding yourself.
So how do we fix it? Re-elect no one, for starters. Everybody gets replaced. Every time they're up for re-election. Educate your friends and neighbors. They're the ones voting for the socialists. If it doesn't happen soon, it won't happen. A few more "terrorist" attacks, we'll be under Marshall Law and it will be all over but the shouting.
No one's coming to your door for your guns. No invading army is going to hit our shores one night unexpected. This socialist revolution has been eating us for years and the enemy is among us. He is not a blue-suited soldier from the UN, nor a jack-booted thug from our own federal government (although neither of them are on our side). He is many faceless individuals pulling a lever on the first Tuesday in November. And soon, we will not outnumber him.
If we can't wake up the sheep, we can't win this battle. As we continue supporting the major political parties, the enemy continues to grow. And if we fail to recognize that enemy, we won't keep our freedom.
If you know something I don't, tell me who to shoot.
