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.)

Are we next for the PCSO force in the U.S.?

A 42 year old Baptist street preacher in Workington, Cumbria, UK, who for years has preached Christianity is arrested and thrown into a jail cell for reading the word of God, the Bible. The arrest was made after a homosexual police community support officer (PCSO) heard his reciting a number of "sins" referred to in the Bible; among these included blasphemy, drunkenness and same sex relationships. The PCSO charged him with using abusive or insulting language, contrary to the U.K's Public Order Act. Mr. McAlpine was taken to the police station and confined in a cell for several hours. He was deprived of his freedom and treated like a common criminal.

The Public Order Act was introduced in 1986 to tackle violent rioters and football hooligans but now is being used to stop religious free speech.

Are we on the administration's agenda to have "special laws" (unconstitutional ones) for special groups that will add badly needed votes (voting blocks) to win close elections? Somehow I feel that we are; how about you?
