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.)

Hope floats....where is the CHANGE?

Shortly after President Elect Barack Obama became President Obama he came to Fort Myers Florida. He promised a gathering of about 1500 people at Harborside Event Center the following: "If we want to fully turn this crisis around the starting point is to get people back to work right now."

Well it hasn't happened, now almost a year later, Fort Myers still has one of the highest foreclosure rates in the nation.....NO CHANGE. The unemployment rate has changed for the worse by increasing 2 percentage points to 13.8%...NO CHANGE EXCEPT NEGATIVE.

The $787 billion economic recovery plan NEVER CHANGED Fort Myers in a positive manner. So much for fulfilling CHANGE promises in a positive manner to the people of Fort Myers. The local failure reflects a expanding national dissatisfaction. His approval rating has dropped to 48% according to Gallup.

President Obama had better listen to the people or there will be a change at the helm of this country following the elections in 2012. He should start listening instead of blaming Pres. Bush and lecturing to the people, his boss, or he will be back in the classroom teaching law.
