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.)

Don't take a knife to a gun fight Pres. Obama

If the current administration in Washington has not learned by now it never will. Many in the middle east, some militant islamists, some regular citizens, some members of the "Brotherhood" and some just members of groups still fighting the "crusades of the middle ages" understand only one thing...POWER. If we can't defend an embassy in a hostile area we should not be there.

Until the governments and people in the hostile area realize that we would rather be respected than loved it will never change. Until they realize that whatever damage or death they inflict on us will be one thousand times greater on the perpetrators of the hostile act against us they will not understand. Power is the mainstay of diplomacy in the middle east followed very closely thereafter by money both above and under the table. Stop taking a knife to a gun fight and don't put our Marines in undefendable situations and if they still inflict damage and death make sure they understand the consequences to them will be a thousand times worse.

Stand with Israel, they are the only nation in that area that understands existential threat and probably the only one we can really count on in all of Europe...and I do understand what I am saying.
