Planting the seeds of tyranny in America
A free nation and a free people need gun ownership as a deterrent against tyranny! As previously pointed out nations where ownership of guns, by its citizens, was banned often saw that government massacring its own people, not by tens and twenties but by the tens of millions. While the hurt of those children killed in Newtown, Conn, fresh in our minds is so pain filled, commonsense says we do not disarm a nation and risk tens of millions, a large percentage of which will be children!
When Jefferson warning of a need for an armed citizenry is mentioned, many liberals laugh it off as crazy. “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort to protect themselves against tyrannical government!” said Thomas Jefferson!
Liberals project no possibility of our government becoming tyrannical. However, opening ones eyes it becomes obvious tyranny is peeping its ugly head in America. It is creeping a little at a time, ever increasing its foothold in America, stealing the freedoms of the people with each step! Negating the value of the Constitution as they creep toward tyrannies like socialism and beyond!
Oppressive Taxation – When overspending is the problem in government, putting the nation in jeopardy of default, and increased taxation is the only solution leadership sees, the purpose of taxation is far greater than supporting finances for what the country needs. It is a methodology to subjugate and oppress the people. Making them dependent on the government dole rather than the freedom to spend what they earn! This is tyranny!
Oppressive Laws – Putting so many laws on the books for every little issue, setting traps for the people so they can be hauled before judges for practically anything they do, this is oppression. Then saying “Ignorance of the law is no excuse” is useless here, because the statutes have become so many, long, large and convoluted even the lawyers studying the law can’t know them all. Legislators making the laws have no idea what is in them. This is tyranny! (Example – Obama’s Healthcare Bill)
Tyranny can come in so many insidious and elusive ways. Our government and politicians are practicing all of them!
