So many things have happened, but due to wordpress being a pain in the butt lately I haven’t blogged anything. First, the senate is about to capitulate all our 2nd amendment rights in the name of “common sense” and “safety”. If you don’t know see how this is wrong on so many levels by now, you never will. In response, let me just quote MLK:
“Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’ Vanity asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’ But, conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?’ And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that it is right.”
See what he did there? Those who whine about whether or not it’s safe are COWARDS. He didn’t mince words about it and there is no room for misinterpretation. They FEAR that someone’s rights might endanger their safety. There’s nothing more selfish than restricting someone’s God-given rights so they can “feel” safe. Ben Franklin agreed with him:
“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
Do you get it yet? These scumbags like Mike Bloomberg are grandstanding on the dead bodies of victims to pass a political agenda. It’s not about safety and it sure as hell ain’t about liberty. It’s about them imposing their will on all of us. I have to agree with both of them. Those who sacrifice liberty for safety are nothing more than cowards and should be shunned as such. This country wasn’t meant to be “safe” it was meant to be FREE!!! “Endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights“, not “inalienable safety”. This nation was built by the bold who were more worried about their liberty, it wasn’t built by cowards whining about saving lives. Millions have given their safety and their lives to keep the rest of us free and now there are those who advocate flushing all of those sacrifices to preserve our liberty down the toilet in the name of safety. If you would rather be safe than free there are plenty of places you can go. Europe has a long history of suppressing individual rights in the interests of safety. (Safety of an elite ruling class, anyway.) But, hey, if your safety is more important than yours or your neighbors’ liberties then feel free to go. In fact, I would urge you to go. Only the BOLD need to stay in America, because being bold about our freedom is what made this nation great. Cowards need not apply. Samuel Adams said it best:
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
In other words, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
