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.)

Pres. Obama read F.A. Hayek

President Obama read F. A. Hayek's The Road To Serfdom and you will understand why the European Union and now we, the United States, are going down the failed road of centralized planning. No country that has ever embarked on a complete centralized planning process has ever sustained itself in the long run. The problem is in our society, which is now becoming even more complex and large (global in nature), that it cannot master the various complexities and constantly changing local, national and global nuances. According to Hayek, a centralized government that tries control all the aspects of that society cannot do so efficiently and eventually grinds itself into the ground as a failed state.

F. A. Hayek, a Nobel laureate in economics is still a strong and reasoned voice to listen 20 years after his death.

A Major Win for Religious Freedom

On January 11, 2012 the U.S. Supreme Court issued a unanimous decision that affirmed a religious group to choose their own ministers. This decision followed a lawsuit, Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. EEOC which was brought by an employee against a church-operated school.

The underlying question in this case was "whether the Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses of the First Amendment bar such an action when the employer is a religious group and the employee is one of the group's ministers."

It is my understanding that ministers of a particular religion are hired to teach the accepted dogmas of that particular religion...that should stand by itself. Now the primary job of a minister of a particular religion is to teach the dogmas of that particular religion for which that minister was hired. The opinion authored by Chief Justice Roberts for the Court was "that both  Religion Clauses bar the government  from interfering with the decision of a religious group to fire one of its ministers."

Now common sense should tell us that if a religious group can fire one of it's ministers for not teaching it's dogmas it should also be protected under the Religion Clauses from HHS (the federal government) telling them which dogmas they must abide by or they will incur a monetary penalty; the federal government fully understanding that this dogma has been promulgated for almost two thousand years. The sanctity of life must be protected from conception until natural death.

Reminder to the U.S. Supreme Court

The Federalist No. 78

"The courts must declare the sense of the law; and if they should be disposed to exercise WILL instead of JUDGMENT, the consequence would equally be the substitution of their pleasure to that of the legislative body."

The Obama administration through Health and Human Services on Jan. 20 mandated employers to provide free abortifacients, sterilizations and contraceptives through their insurance plans to their employees. This caused many religious and faith based employers to provide a service or product that was totally contrary to their religious and moral convictions.

This, I believe, is only the first in probably many steps that the Obama administration will continue to promulgate in removing from the U.S. Constitution and it's Bill of Rights most if not all the rights we have currently. If President Obama and his administration has another four years to act in this manner we will not recognize this country and I will not be able to write a blog such as this one. Beware!

America's Greatest Danger

America's greatest danger is not a country but the advancement of an evil principle by certain members of our citizenry. It has become obvious over the last few years that certain factions in this country want to do away with the principles which are inculcated in the founding documents of our country. They want to erase the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution with the "new state religion of secular humanism". They want us to take up and incorporate this "new state religion" into the inner recesses of our souls. By doing this they will be able to abolish even the memories of the fact that this country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles which are unchanging moral truths which are inculcated in the very fabric of our being by nature and nature's Creator. Beware any individual or group who proposes this new modern progressive way of thinking about this "new progressive state religion" because in accepting it's so called modern dogmas you will loose your soul and eventually your country...beware of those who offer you that which they know they cannot deliver...they are deceivers.

Why now President Obama?

The force and coercion of Pres. Obama through his use of the HHS mandate to religious organizations to violate their religious principles by providing sterilizations, contraceptives and abortifacients is a very strange battle for the Obama administration to want to tackle at this time.

In the first place it violates our First Amendment Rights and secondly it is placing another debt on future generations that they may not be able to pay. The magic number known as the "replacement level" is 2.1 children for every couple. The only thing that is keeping this number from dipping below this level is illegal immigration. I suspect that to keep the U.S. at the needed "replacement level" that this will be used to justify softer immigration policies in regards to "illegal immigration". By somehow, socially engineering this segment of our society they may be able to control the future economy, deficits, taxes and various social segments of our nation.

This type of "central control" will only lead to a totalitarian state with bigger government and more control via coercive forces of this centralized big government. We all know what has happened in countries that have sought to use central planning to "control" all aspects of resulted in slavery, gulags and the death of millions.
