“The liberal propagandists tell us, the constitutional conservative and freedom loving American citizenship, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary, who are determined to destroy all hope in the American ideal. But when shall we be stronger than right now in the midst of a battle that our numbers alone guarantee success if we can but unite as one?”
Will it be this 2012 presidential election? I hope that it is. For it is feared by many that our freedoms will not survive until the next!
“Will we allow our first amendment right of free speech to be silenced and to be totally disarmed of any means to protect ourselves and our families, only to then witness the Obama administration declare Martial Law by unlawful executive overreach of power to authorize the Department of Homeland Security to deploy a militarized civil police force to arrest and imprison and or kill all who dissent, and to instill fear among the populace by the devaluing of the dollar, shutting down the banking system, the internet, restricting all services, food and water, and then stationing a permanent armed guard amongst a dazed and confused populace to ensure their communist enslavement?
Shall we gather strength by irresolution, worthless political debates and the majorities inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?
Wake up people! We are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature has placed in our power.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government – lest it come to dominate our lives and interests. Which is now a reality most people have yet to realize.
Are we to be brought to such a humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense?
Should not life be considered so dear and peace so sweet, as to be purchased at any cost to live as free people above the reproach of the chains of slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
I believe that Patric Henery knew all to well what lay in store for the American people if we do not hold our elected officials to the checks and balances which the founding fathers of America so brilliantly wrote into law.
