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.

112th Congress....THE TIPPING POINT?

Yesterday, Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011 the 112th Congress of the United States of America was convened. In November of last year the "real power" of the United States "We The People" spoke in terms that politicians of all parties understand; they voted. I believe they told all on the Hill to start to behave as statesmen concerned with the welfare of this country and the individual and not be blinded by party partisanship. The American people want the Congress to follow the principles as set forth in the U.S. Constitution and at this point in history to be concerned about the economy, the deficit and jobs. Don't try to solve the world's problems...start with ours...they are a big enough challenge. I hope that all in the Congress got this message and also all in the Obama Administration including President Obama.

Do not listen to there words and promises...see and keep tract of what they DO. Constantly remind them that they are there to serve the United States and the electorate that put them there.
