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.

Showing his true colors?

In spite of the genetic gifts inherited from his white mother and black father, God given ones and learned ones through study at elite universities President Obama still doesn't "get it". His superb rhetorical skill and affability promote and promise a Utopian world, peace, prosperity, health and universal happiness through his leadership and change. I agree these goals are admirable ones and we all should strive to make them reality. So much for his goals and words: now lets talk and look at the reality of his actions...the "real stuff" of a person that emanates from his inner voice of conscience which is the product of his "formation" from an infant to President of the United States of America.

On Friday, January 23 he struck down the ban on using tax payer money to assist international (foreign) groups that perform abortions. I believe that the President truly wants to do many of the good things he promoted during his campaign. However, a Utopian society cannot be achieved by promoting and subsidizing a "culture of death"; one that says it wants to make people free in the truest sense of the word but bases the achievement of that goal on the amoral assumption that the taking of life, pre-born, during birth, in diseased states, or in the elderly is warranted because it will be balanced by the good it will supposedly achieve for the many. This proposition has been used in the past and has only brought more death, misery and the collapse of nations and civilizations. To promote this course of action is to promote our eventual extinction from the face of the planet. The more we cheapen life the more its intrinsic value decreases...eventually to the point of being worthless.
