Standing up for the Second Amendment
For approximately 120 years, progressives’ virulent attacks on the U.S. Constitution, customs, and traditions have gone unchallenged. Should the progressive movement succeed in watering down or removing the Second Amendment, which is the center of gravity in our Constitution; the progressives, then, will finally achieve their main goal –power.
The country that our founders gifted us will become unrecognizable.
It is time to stand up for the Second Amendment and reject progressives’ camouflaged rules that say one thing but mean another.
All elected politicians, military members, and judges take an oath to preserve and defend the U.S. Constitution; there is no oath to change, modify, or modernize into a “living” document.
The U.S. Constitution is the longest surviving written constitution in all of history. It is the product of our Declaration of Independence. Ratified on June 21, 1788, it established America’s national government and fundamental laws, and guaranteed certain basic rights for its citizens. One of those rights being: “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.” The founders being so close in time to events leading to our Declaration of Independence understood that if the colonists were unarmed, they would never have succeeded against the super power of that era — the United Kingdom.
Progressives are prepared to do whatever it takes to modify or even re-write the most powerful freedom document ever conceived by man — U.S. Constitution. Progressives have deep roots in government, media, industry, technology, unions, entertainment, etc. They will prey on the human weaknesses like: envy, greed, avarice, lust, and wrath to promote their agenda. It is not going to be easy to derail the charging progressive train or to even slow it down. However, we must take the high road to preserve our Constitution exactly as the founders envisioned; we must not give an inch of ground to progressive ideals.
The progressives are extremely well trained and organized; they do not deviate one tiny millimeter once higher authority approves goals and talking points. To better understand the foundation of the progressive movement, we need to educate ourselves without delay. So, it is essential that we read and understand the writings of early progressives like Frank Goodnow, John Dewey, Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Croly and take the free online course from Hillsdale College “U.S. Constitution I and II.”
Every successful organization has an instructional manual, a blueprint, a guide if you will. The progressives are loyal disciples of Saul Alinsky’s, a more recent progressive who wrote the book Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals. In his book, Alinsky acknowledges Lucifer as his rebellion model: the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom.” Do we really want to live in Lucifer’s kingdom?
Rules for Radicals teaches its disciples the following: how to create organizations to seize power; make revolution; create class, gender, race division; take control of the message and means to broadcast it to a wide audience; control the way our children are educated; owning word usage, example “political correctness;” ridicule opponents; keep pressure and utilize all events for your purpose; if you repeat a lie deep enough it will break through and be accepted as truth; and attack charismatic opponents by identifying them, freezing them, personalizing them, and finally polarizing them. These are some of the ideas behind this book. Do any or all these measures sound familiar, perhaps something we read and see everyday from our news media and even entertainers?
“Does anyone desire anything for any other reason than to secure happiness?”
It is time to take a stand, enough of giving up ground to the progressives. Let’s preserve the country our founders gifted us.
