Those in power, who despise our Constitution?
Watching the Senator from Illinois, Durbin, mouth off today to voice his total opposition to our Constitution and all that we are founded upon makes me wonder if (perhaps) he won’t become the next target for some crazed shooter. Will it be his wife or children? Will it be any of the criminals in D.C. or our State Capitals, who have decided to take it upon themselves to deny their fellow Americans of their God-given right to defend themselves? Most of these crazy acts, when properly examined, will be shown to be by-products of those very law-makers. Unintended consequences, or black swans? Possibly. But I think not. By-products? Absolutely.
As they move forward in their next attempts, to protect themselves and (through the disarmament of their fellows) their control over the masses, these elected officials and unelected bureaucrats will certainly play up, tear up, and make up, over the recent spat of shootings. I do not expect the facts to get in their way. I must always remember, however, that the primary aim (in their minds) will be to protect their own personal hold on power. Even if they have to kill every last American citizen to do it!
The more foolish among them would turn this country into Syria. Given half a chance, they will. The question remains then, whether this is that cause? Is this the cause they are willing to kill (and certainly to die) for? Will this be their final act? The next few months will tell us all we need to know. If we aren’t already witnessing civil disorder in our streets by that time. Even then, any acts (along the lines of gun control) on behalf of our illustrious Government as a result of such disobedience will only be amplified. Thereby driving more and more fence-sitters to declare.
Recent interviews indicate that these so-called “leaders” are all too willing to take on this cause. In public, they appear to be ready to act in ways that could be the defining act in the course of our American experiment. One can only wonder what they are doing and saying in private. In their little closed sessions and planning meetings.
Will Americans sit idly by, allowing Tyranny to replace their Democracy, in the same way they sat idly while Senators and Caesars replaced their Republic with a Democracy?
BTW, do you think that the bodyguard in the photo’s background might just be armed to the teeth?
