It has been said that the most effective thing that Satan ever did was to convince the world that he didn’t exist. This “trick” is effective because when people stop believing in him, they stop believing in his evil influence as well…they ultimately begin to believe that bad things just happen; that there is really no evil and any such talk is little more than the ravings of religious conspiracy theorists. This is all part of Satan’s plan…to have the people of the world let down their guard and then slip silently into their collective consciousness to subjugate and destroy the souls of all mankind.
So exists the illusion that tyranny doesn’t exist…the illusion that tyranny is reserved for other nations far removed from us…that we are somehow immune to such things as oppression because we are the United States of America and we have a Constitution that protects us from such frightful things.
I listened with great concern when I heard Piers Morgan literally ridicule a guest on his show for stating that our second amendment was established as a means to protect ourselves against tyranny…I watched in awe as he attempted to discredit this guest by asking him questions like “do you know how ridiculous you sound?” and I watched in horror as I heard Mr. Morgan allude to the fact that the possibility of tyranny did not exist for the United States…that people who believed that tyranny is a possibility were nothing more that conspiracy theorists and fools.
Well I guess our forefathers were nothing more than conspiracy theorists and fools; because Mr. Morgan, that is the exact reason why they wrote the second amendment into our Bill of Rights…and to scoff at such absolute fact sir, exposes your ignorance of our Constitution and in my opinion discredits your credentials as an effective journalist. While tyranny might not now exist in the ranks of our federal government, our forefathers had enough insight and experience to anticipate the possibility of such a situation in the future. In their wisdom and foresight, they wrote in a stop gap measure just in case it decided to try and “creep in”.
Dearest Liberty, I find it more than ironic that the body that our second amendment was established to protect us from is that very same body that is trying to limit our access to the rights that that amendment guarantees…hmmm…the image of the fox guarding the hen house comes to mind; especially when I hear our federal government saying things like “this is for your own good” and “we will make America a safer place”. A safer place for what Mr. Obama?! A safer place for whom?! You must be more specific sir because I believe you are only speaking about half of what you are thinking.
Thomas Jefferson once said, ““I predict future happiness for Americans, if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” Mr. Morgan, I believe this statement was made to warn us about people like you.
Liberty, can you help me clear something up for those who do not already know this: The federal government does not give the American people their rights…it is the American people who give the federal government IT’S rights. This is a Constitutional fact, not an opinion. So when the federal government attempts to take away ANY right and exercises unwarranted control over the American people it should be a red flag to us that there is something amiss…that there is something very wrong happening in Washington DC…that there exists, the very possibility of….dare I say it?….tyranny?
