Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty teeth.

First Inaugural Address of George Washington...April 30, 1789

The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

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.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Abraham Lincoln said:

"In this age, and in this country, public sentiment is everything. With it, nothing can fail; against it nothing can suceed. Whoever molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes, or pronounces judicial decisions."

James Madison Declared

The adversaries of the Constitution seem to have lost sight of the PEOPLE altogether in their reasonings on this subject; and to have viewed these different establishments not only as mutual rivals and enemies, but as uncontrolled by any common superior in their efforts to usurp the authorities of each other. These gentlemen must be reminded of their error. They must be told that the ULTIMATE AUTHORITY, wherever the derivative may be found, RESIDES IN THE PEOPLE ALONE. (Federalist Papers, No. 46, p.294; emphasis added.)

$175,000 versus millions

The ultimate in hypocrisy was manifest tonight with the televising of Sen. B. Obama's infomercial. The Democrats condemned the Gov. from Alaska for getting some new duds to wear, $175,000 worth, during the campaign which will be auctioned off after the campaign is over and given to charity but not a peep from anyone about the millions spent by Sen. B. Hussein Obama to sell himself to the people of the United States. Doesn't that seem a little unfair and not balanced to you? If all its going to take to win the Presidency is a lot of money and good fitting suit and being able to read a teleprompter well this country is going to be in for some hard times. Leadership has nothing to do with money, TV time and slick talk but everything to do with keeping your promises and maintaining your core principles. Senator McCain did not break under seven years of torture at the Hanoi Hilton...I think the White House should be a breeze for him.

The article prompted me to search for "McCain Hanoi" and one of the top results was

Watch the video. Watch McCain verbally beat up the sister of a USAF pilot who was still MIA in 1992. And hug the man who was one his interrogators at the Hanoi Hilton.
