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.)

Obama is a no show

President Obama, the Commander In Chief of this nation's armed forces was a "NO SHOW" at the inaugural ball that was attended by the recipients of the highest honor that this country can bestow on a member of the military: The Congressional Medal of Honor. A "NO SHOW" says something to me especially during a time of war against the terrorist threats faced by our members of the armed forces. The Commander In Chief of this nation's armed forces has two main mandates: the security of this nation and the well being of the troops he commands...maybe he just forgot....NOT! Wonder what the men and women who are laying it all on the line for their boss think of his "NO SHOW"; it must instill in them a feeling of really being appreciated.

Oh, by the way he was the first President to not attend this ball in 56 years.
