Patriots know: Democracy is an invitation to disaster!

March 3rd, 2009 . by TexasFred

Somehow, I think this Marine has been reading my blog: Just how much can the ~Gun Grabbers~ really do?

Rob at American and Proud asks, Traitor or PATRIOT? and I say PATRIOT! A&P is where I found this YouTube, and the Marine in question echos many, if not all of the same feelings that I, and many others have voiced as of late!

Americans, REAL, deep in their hearts and souls Americans, are fed up with the BS that is flowing from Washington. We were fed up during the last 8 years under George W. Bush and we are even more fed up under the debacle of the Obama administration.

The future of this nation is in OUR hands, WE, The People built this nation, WE, The People may very well have to rebuild this nation, but this time, lets stick to a true REPUBLIC, a democracy is nothing more than an invitation to disaster!

We are staunch supporters of Texas Sovereignty! You need to support your state and it’s sovereignty as well! If your state doesn’t support it’s own sovereignty, maybe you need to consider coming to a state that does.

    Great video,

    Fred I know you’re not overly religious but as the son of a preacher man my father often says this about the current state of the nation:

    Something from the Bible, God to Adam…

    ADAM, I am GOD, AND I HAVE GIVEN YOU A WONDERFUL GARDEN TO LIVE IN BUT “”YOU”" MUST DRESS IT AND KEEP IT!!

    “WE” must dress it brother, but with the way things have gotten now, it’s so bad, that it’s going take one Hell of a field dressing and a few tourniquets to stop the bleeding, *IF* it can be done before that metaphor turns into REAL American blood in the form of a revolution or civil war all over again.

    My own personal thoughts as far as politics goes and the state of the nation is this:

    When people quit their duties then time will erode all the good. Has anyone ever seen anything improve by neglect? I think not. Take either a democrat or republican and let them smell money or power very long and they will trade everything and everybody to grab it. Put both in a sack and then reach in and grab one, pull it out, and it will either be a rattlesnake or a copper head. Either will bite you and spread their venom. We are a REPUBLIC, pure and simple and it’s way past time to start fighting for it!

    How does that old saying go?

    “Democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what’s for dinner; a Republic is giving the sheep an XD .40 and an equal vote…”

    By nature, or design, I’m normally a rather optimistic person, and usually believe there is good. I can see no good anymore.

    The complacency of the people has driven us to this point in time, and it’s past time we all ‘wake up’, and see the bigger picture.

    I’m rather glad my parents are not alive today to see the ugliness that has come to the country they loved. As first generation Americans, and much older than most kids’ parents, they lived through two World Wars, and the REAL Great Depression. They scrimped and saved, and worked hard so we wouldn’t have to. Well, we should have. Our generation have no idea what real hardship is, but I think we are getting ready to find out….in more ways than financial.

    I’m not afraid to admit, watching this video, I had to cry. Cry for what has been lost, and will be lost, if we do nothing. I cried for my grandchildren, and all the grandchildren who will be burdened with an oppressive regime. I cry for the freedoms they will never know.

    &Thanks Fred, And that’s One helluva Patriot there, and if indeed he does read here we all salute you and your incredible bravery, no one wearing that uniform is a coward, face covered or not. Our government has become tyrannical nearly overnight and we must all respond in kind and your concern for your family and self is recognized.

    As Gerald Ford said,”A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.” and they’ve made incredible strides towards that goal in unbelievable time, 30 days with hardly a minute of public debate.

    Obama has enslaved 3 generations with his executive orders and treasonous borrowing, and these traitors in Washington must be stopped now. We have an incredible choice to make as citizens and patriots, as we need our military members strength to lead the revolt then we will stand side by side to take our government back. Thats the only way this can be done with this monstrosity…

    God bless you Anonymous soldier and your brethren as we are behind and beside you 100%.

    He’s absolutely correct when he says most servicemen don’t know what’s in the Constitution. I would venture to say 98% of them. I was about the 15 year point when I first read the Constitution. Some organization had passed out pocket versions to all GI’s on base. My boss at the time (E=8) read his and said the next day, “Do you realize that if the American Public knew what the Constitution said, there would be another revolt in this country?. Our government has taken our country so far away from the Constitution that the Founding Fathers would not recognize it.

    Walter Williams has a good read entitled “Are we a republic or democracy?”

    It was what the founding fathers intended. The republic has been eroded over the years by politicians making with the power grab mentality. We just need to get back to what this country was intended to be and get away from what it has become. I pray that revolution is unecessary but the founders also alowed for that eventuality when they included the 2nd amendment. It was not intended to give hunters the ability to hunt, it was intended to keep the government honest. I do not advocate revolution, I think there is still time to address the issue in other ways. That is all assuming we can pull the voters heads out of their rears.

    Revolution is a lot closer than any want to admit I am afraid…

    TF . . . You appear to be right handed and left-eye dominant.

    Just like me.

    I enjoy your blog. Keep on keepin’ on.

  9. comment number 9 by: TexasFred

    CJ, very astute observation… Yes, I am… Lost sight in that eye many years ago, I shoot a rifle and shotgun left handed, I shoot pool left handed, I’m OK left handed with a pistol but just not nearly as good left as I am right…

  10. comment number 10 by: CJ

    Wow, this is getting stranger by the minute.

    I also have a “bad” right eye. I can see out of it, but not well enough to shoot. I also shoot “long arms” left-handed.

    A real brother in arms.

  11. comment number 11 by: Pat Houseworth

    Traitor or Patriot?

    The only traitors are the useless sonsabitches in and out of the media that drop down and worship the Messiah at his every word.

    I too am right handed and left eye dominant…but have good vision in both eyes, although I have a lazy muscle(just doesn’t move to the right) in my right eye….so I’ve always used the left to sight guns, and most everything else.

    I am proud to state that the State of Texas has joined the ranks of the other 21 states that are afirming their sovereign rights under the Constitution of the United States.

    Check out this article and the bills currently in the State legislature: http://www.judgingtruth.com/2009/03/03/a-state-in-revolution-assering-states-rights/

    Fred I am stealing this video and right posting it on Judging Truth. Hat-tip, pingback on the way. This is so powerful of a statement that it must be repeated.

  13. comment number 13 by: Ingrid

    Does this mean we might be close to seceding from this corrupt federal government?
    The country of Texas sounds good to me.
    Let me know when I need to pull all the guns out!!

    Revolution is a lot closer than any want to admit I am afraid

    “The Myth of the Second Amendment”
    It’s time to clear up a few popular misconceptions about the second amendment held by pro and anti gunners alike. These misconceptions cloud the true intent of the most important of all the amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights. Without the second amendment protections to keep and bear arms, the People would be unable to defend any of their other rights. We then place ourselves in a position of having our rights granted to us under some form of benevolence.

    These misconceptions will also ultimately lead to severe restrictions of this sacred right by allowing anti-rights groups to set the terms around which the debate is centered.
    First, the second amendment was not designed to protect the rights of hunters.

    Second, the second amendment was not designed to protect the rights of sportsmen.

    And third, even though it is very important that everyone has the right to defend themselves and their loved ones, the second amendment was not designed to protect the individual.

    Let’s examine the second amendment a little closer. For the record: 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.

    … BEING NECESSARY TO THE SECURITY OF A FREE STATE, …
    There is nothing that is ambiguous about that statement.
    Our rights as gun owners are predicated on the fact that at some point in time it may become necessary to defend our freedom. Not with words and arguments. Not with protests and civil disobedience. Not through any legal recourse.

    Our freedom will be defended with blood. With force. With the strength of our desire to be free. With our lives. With the lives of those we love. And with guns. There will be no other way.

    I am not advocating revolution and the overthrow of our government – not yet anyway.

    However … Our freedom was bought and paid for with the blood of those who refused to live under tyranny. Our freedom has been defended by the blood of their sons. And their sons. And theirs. And one day it will be our duty to defend our freedom with our own blood. And the blood of our sons.

    Where in the hell did we pick up the idea that there is no price to pay for freedom? That no sacrifice is necessary.

    The framers of the Constitution, particularly the authors of the Bill of Rights recognized that we must be ever vigilant in the protection of our freedom. That at some point in time we may have to turn our own government back from a path that denies our freedom and destroys the very foundation that this country was built upon. They recognized the inherent tyranny in all governments. That all governments become oppressive.

    As Aristotle stated, ‘Republics decline into democracies, and democracies degenerate into despotisms.’

    And if there is any one lesson to be learned from history, that lesson is that history repeats itself, time after time after time.

    An armed populace is the only insurance that we the People have in the maintenance of our freedom. It is only with our arms that the government will respect the will of the People to be free. It is only our arms that can inspire a healthy dose of fear in the government toward the People. And it is only our resolve to fight and defend our freedom that will keep our government from stripping away our rights and our freedom.
    So do not perpetuate the myths surrounding the second amendment. The second amendment was designed to allow the People to defend their freedom from any incursion. Particularly from their own government. For those that cherish their freedom, there can be no argument on this point.
    Long live the republic.

  16. comment number 16 by: Concerned Citizen

    I have to agree wholeheartedly with WashintonArmory. Our founding fathers had just fought a bloody revolution to gain their new found freedoms and they knew that only by an armed populace would those rights forever be secure. I also agree that the primary function of the Second Amendment is to secure the liberties of the State and her citizens from the oppression of a strong centralized government, while I do see those rights not only being limited to that function and clearly extending to the defense of oneself, ones property and the life of others.

    The debate over the Second Amendment must never be allowed to be constrained to the rights of a hunter or even the right of the individual to protect his life, the lives of his loved ones, the life of a third party or his property. The fundamental fact that the founders understood was that the ONLY reason they were now free from tyranny was at the point of a gun and the ONLY way it would ever be preserved is if every citizen was capable of defending those rights with arms. As discussed in the Federalist Papers, the only way to prevent a well armed centralized government from turning its standing armies against its population was to ensure that the population was armed and able to resist.

    I have, without a doubt, some of THE most astute comment makers on the net, that makes me feel very good!

    And Kate, if you want Tenn to be considered you need to get Tenn on the Sovereignty movement or get your Ol’ Broad ass back home to Texas darlin’… We’ll leave the light on for you!!

  18. comment number 18 by: Kate

    :P The poor Yankee Mr would melt. LOL

    I was quite pleased to find out my state rep is on of the co-sponsors of the 10th Amendment bill….can’t remember the # right now, but am also a tad disturbed that we even have a need to assert our Constitutional rights. :?

  19. comment number 19 by: Concerned Citizen

    Wow, Fred! I got called an MFing hate monger for posting that video by someone you should recognize named ‘liberaldude’.

    How tolerant of my beliefs and opinions he was. He even threw a Nazi association at me over on Jenn’s blog. I guess that video must have scared him a bit, eh?

    And I stand by the prediction…maybe sooner than you think!

    This is a frightening video. But it is necessary and should be viewed by everyone. Everyone who, I must stipulate, actually cares about their country.

    I viewed this video about a week ago, when I came across it posted on facebook, so it is making its way around the net.

  24. comment number 24 by: TexasFred

    TopGun, I am really happy to see you back and making comments!!

  25. comment number 25 by: TopGun

    I have been driving through reading every now and then. I was unable to sign in. I sent you an email to get signed back in and didn’t hear back. I figured you didn’t want me posting here anymore after you got a little upset with me over that “shot heard around the world? spat we had.

    I have seen all of this coming, from over a year ago, in my crystal ball. ;- )

    I bet you have a different view on all of that now, being we have a Dictator “changing? everything at the speed of light. :- )

    Maybe we will meet on the battle field some day, on the same side of course. It would be an honor to fight alongside another Patriot like you and all of the other Patriots who post here. I guess I need to go get a dang AR-15 and lots of clips, bullets, shells, primers, powder and some new Forrester dies for the RCBS and start reloading, or maybe I need to go buy a Dillon so I can mass produce them . My 700 BDL 7mm REM MAG rifles and my shotguns are not much good for this. Man o man. I haven’t had to reload in quite a few years. 10,000 rounds, just to start, is a lot of reloading. Holy crap, 10,000 is a lot of cases to run through the case trimmer. Maybe we will skip that step. I don’t guess I will be as precise in my powder weights for these loads. LOL As long as they can hit center mass at 300 yards, I believe that will suffice, even though three shots touching at 100 yards used to be fun to load up. I will feel cheap loading something other than Nosler Partition bullets.

    One last thing, that second amendment march in Washington will be too late in the spring of next year. Those guys putting it together need to do it “now? with all of this Tea Party protest energy in the grassroots building and “while? you have the attention of these outrageous actions going on with the Stimulus Bill, Mortgage bailouts, etc. It will be a “huge? mistake to miss this opportunity right now and wait until next year when you might not have the present energy with the citizens. It needs to happen “this? summer, in 3-4 months. July 4 would be a good date. You would be surprised how fast it all could come together with the current dissatisfaction presently in the air. Timing is “everything? in whatever you do in life, and we can not miss this unrest within the populace that is being handed to us for “free?. I promise you, you will not get another opportunity like this with this amount of energy. These politicians are our domestic enemy. What do you do to your enemy? You for one thing do not hesitate to attack (make a point with the march) when you see a huge opening to help your cause, you hit, and hit, and hit, and keep hitting until we get “our? change, our rights back.

    I hope you and your family members are staying healthy.

    I remember sending you an email about your log-in, we had a lot of problems with this thing about then, I thought I told you, as I have had to with several others, let me delete the account and have you re-register… Oh well, you’re here now, that is ALL that matters…

    Yeah, we had a disagreement, big deal, if we thought alike all the time this shit would be terribly boring…

    We are in FULL agreement regarding the march too, too little and damned sure too late in MY opinion… That’s why I have pretty much dropped support, I still *support* the guy, he IS trying, but he’s a bit misguided I believe…

  27. comment number 27 by: TopGun

    Then maybe someone else, who can see the light, needs to put the march together for this year.

    If I were rich and did not have to work, I could make it happen in 3 months, I guarantee you.
