Like millions of Americans I watched the President’s speech Wednesday. At times I felt myself getting very emotional. There is no doubt that Barack is a good public speaker. But, with all due respect this is not about making emotional decisions, it is about honoring the constitution as it protects the citizens of this country. This country was built on certain freedoms that the President is trying to ignore. He has zero power to take these freedoms away for they were bestowed by God and are protected by our constitution.
Obama signed 23 executive orders Wednesday. He has vowed to do everything he can to fix this problem. I would truly respect that opinion if I believed that was his real intent. Barack Obama is a hypocrite. Let’s take a short blurb from his speech and allow me to prove that to you.
“There will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical, all-out assault on liberty — not because that’s true, but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves. And behind the scenes, they’ll do everything they can to block any common-sense reform and make sure nothing changes whatsoever.” -Obama Speaking on January 16, 2013
I think he was talking about people like me. OK, so I’m not that important, but he was talking about conservative bloggers, conservative news sources, conservative politicians, conservative lobbyists, and generally everyone who disagrees with him. I prefer to look at the facts whenever possible. Let’s revisit the text of the second amendment:
The second amendment is not about deer hunting. The founders were very clear about this. It is to protect ourselves from the threat of a tyrannical government. Mr. Obama, if you are a tyrant, of course you will not admit it. LOL Well played. ;-)
Your opinion means nothing here. Whether the current administration is as corrupt as some believe, or not, the second amendment is about empowering the citizens of this country to rise up against their government, should the need arise. You know this. You are bobbing in treasonous waters for even questioning the constitution of our land. It is the law.
Mr. Obama, I have always wanted to say this to a man of your stature, so listen up… Ignorance of the law is not acceptable.
Our country is not a democracy. It is a constitutional republic. In other words, even if a large percentage of Americans supported your proposed reforms it would not matter. Pulling out your hypothetical theories of massive support did not matter, it was ploy to drum up massive support that does not exist. Our constitution was put into place to guarantee our rights that were given by God. It protects against the idea of a “corrupt majority.” It protects individual rights and you sir should know this.
Mr. Obama, you have no idea what tyrants can emerge in our government, even if you truly are not one of them. What if the American people vote the Anti-Christ into office in 2016? Some are saying that we already have, but I am a reasonable man. Why would anyone other than a voice of evil want to disarm the American people? Wouldn’t you want to protect them for future generations? These questions deserve answers.
You say that we want nothing to change but this is not true. Those from the right have offered numerous alternatives to gun bans but you have simply not listened, because these ideas are not part of YOUR agenda. The NRA even offered their own common sense idea, and though I don’t like their idea of a bigger federal government, the point is that you have been given many alternatives and you simply choose not to listen.
You are not about bi-partisanship as you say. You admitted yesterday that it was Joe Biden and your cabinet who went to work on finding solutions to the problem. It was not a bi-lateral union of both major parties. It was a witch hunt run by liberal democrats.
OK so let’s talk about these agendas that your opponents have. I could answer for myself by telling you that I get paid ZERO for writing this today. Do I have an agenda? Hell yeah I do. My agenda is to fight for my country in the best way I know how. I am a small fish but I am trying to preserve the liberties of each American and we stand united against your ideas. We will back the constitution and not those who will try to rewrite it. If you don’t like it then you should return to Kenya or Indonesia or wherever you feel most at home. I can throw insults too.
I do not agree with your “breakdown” of the 2nd amendment. That makes me someone who disagrees with you but it does not make me someone who is about ratings and revenue. That sir would be what you are about. Let’s look at the facts Barack.
You and your political mates reward “special interests” by giving them sweetheart deals. Hollywood received 24 billion dollars in movie production tax breaks in the recent fiscal cliff legislation while 77% of Americans saw their taxes increase. Rum producers received a similar deal. I am thinking there are a lot of Captain Morgan fans in D.C. Mr. Obama you are a hypocrite.
Your “Fast and Furious” debacle left Americans dead, by the barrels of guns once owned by our own government, which you put into the hands of Mexican drug lords. And now you want to take our guns? Why? To give them to Mexican drug cartels? Mr. President that is a perfectly fair question.
The Department of Homeland Security has purchased 1.6 billion rounds of hollow point ammunition, enough to kill every American 5 times over. Hollow point ammo is outlawed in international conflict. Are we supposed to believe that these are truly just for “target practice?” It’s another fair question.
Four Americans lost their lives in an attack in Benghazi. Four star admiral James Lyons has been quoted as saying, “the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi… was the result of a bungled abduction attempt…. the first stage of an international prisoner exchange… that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the ‘Blind Sheik’…” Where are your continued news conferences about this? Why are you shoving this to the back burner? These Americans were killed as well and the people are still waiting for answers. Who is the average American more likely to believe? A career politician? Or a man who has been decorated for service to his country?
Former award winning CNN correspondent, Amber Lyon, has publicly stated that CNN is paid by the US government for reporting on some events, and not reporting on others. Where are your responses to this? Has it ever occurred to you that small independent blogs like this one, spring up simply because we can not trust anything we read, hear, or see through traditional media?. Americans are not stupid. They know that the media is controlled by those with liberal agendas.
If you want to talk about behind the scenes activity, why are so many people who may have something to tell us…ending up dead? From Andrew Breitbart to 20 Navy Seals who allegedly killed Bin Laden and a whole lot of people in between. Even your own adopted sister, Lia Soetoro Sabah is dead. With all due respect, a lot of people wonder what she might have been able to tell us about your upbringing. Mr. Obama, a large segment of this population does not believe that you were born in Hawaii. No one can prove your direct involvement in any of these deaths but they do bring about questions that need to be asked.
Either way, if you want to insult your critics and say we are all about ratings and revenues, then I thought I would just drop a few quick reminders about how you are just another “pot calling the kettle black.” Oh yes, I realize this was a “racist” remark. Anyway, that is how certain people would see it. Mr. Obama, that is not racist because I would never insult African-Americans by labeling you as one of them.
Why have we not stopped the transport of F-16’s and tanks to Egypt, despite the instability in that country? The deal was made with Mubaruk. The deal is now void. Is there an agenda there?
The American people deserve to read this stuff. I will admit that some of it proves to later be debunked, but Mr. Obama it is people like me who offer balance, and in many cases we offer absolute truth to refute your lies. I can debunk many of the stories of the liberal media and you don’t seem to mind their mistaken facts. As long as CNN gets their “gubmint” check, all is good.
The second amendment is not about hunting deer. It is about hunting politicians. Maybe that’s why you want to take our guns. Deer do not shoot back Mr. President. If I am faced with a corrupt government then rest assured I will need large capacity magazines and assault rifles. It has nothing to do with whether or not our 2013 D.C. “Class” is corrupt. It is simply a right protected by the 2nd amendment of our constitution.
How many people noticed that you never spoke of an assault rifle being used at Sandy Hook? You spoke of it being used in Aurora, CO but not in Newtown, CT. That’s because early reports were proven to be untrue. So why are we debating “assault” rifles when these children were killed with handguns?
The truth is that you are an opportunist who will do anything and everything to advance your agenda, including making people cry and playing on their emotions. You do it for ratings and revenue and you Mr. President are a hypocrite and a liar.
You issued 23 executive orders yesterday and I have no power to do that. I’m not an executive. I am an average American, but we have a voice too. I’m just going to issue one order from the American people and from the constitution which protects us.
Mr. Obama you will not take our guns without us calling upon our second amendment rights to use them. You can expect extreme prejudice if you are successful in more strikes against the second amendment. The founders were very clear about this.
