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.)

Who do you trust?

Well who do you trust? As I get older I trust fewer and fewer people and entities. Call me jaded, call me paranoid or whatever you want....but I trully believe I may have attained the "wisdom" that comes with age and being lied to and screwed by individuals, businesses, politicians and govenments...local, state and national. Does anyone tell the truth or does everyone have their own agenda. So this coming election year I am going to judge a candidate by not only what they say they will try and do but by their past actions, promises and what they have accomplished. I suspect that I will be voting a majority of incombents out of office on local, state and national levels. Can new individuals with firm commitments do any worse that their forebearers...think not. So I think I am going to try and change the entire sltate and trust in providence and the zeal of neophytes to change the way government operates...hoping they will work for the people and not for themselves and their party. Wish me luck...I believe the future of our country depends on the results of this coming national election. Don't vote just for party but vote for the person who understands that they are there to serve you and the best interests of this country.
