Twelve years ago today thousands of Americans were killed by Islamists, it was just the excuse our government needed to stomp out the Bill of Rights. No it wasn't a false flag conspiracy by the some secret society of ruling elite to prime the people of the USA to allow massive restrictions on their liberty. But it provided an excuse for the Patriot Act which resulted in the blatant abuse of our rights as described in the First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, Ninth, Tenth, and even Third Amendments to our constitution. All these rights restrict the federal government; none of them grant the government the authority to ignore them in case of Terrorism or other compelling government interest.
But today we wake up to the fact that in the USA it is still true that the ruling elite govern at the consent of the people. In Colorado two of the ruling elite were clearly told, "You Don't Have Our Consent," and fired. The issue was fundamental, State Sen. John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron, rejected the will of the citizens of Colorado and pushed through anti-Second Amendment laws in Colorado that the people Colorado made clear they didn't want. For that they were fired. We The People have sent a loud and clear message. ENOUGH!! We do not consent!
Since 9/11 the people of the united states have been on a spending spree, we have been arming ourselves. 9/11 made things clear, the world is dangerous and our government cannot protect us all the time in every instance. We see what massive immigration has and is doing to Europe. We see governments either unable or inept to protect average citizens from the effects of allowing massive numbers of people to immigrate from third world nations. We have and are taking responsibility for our own security and arming ourselves. The result is that outside of our most violent inner cities with severe restrictions on gun ownership, violent crime in the USA has diminished. The truth be told we are finding that Heinlein was right and in actuality "An armed society is a polite society."
The actions of our government have also made one other thing perfectly clear. Our government fears We the People, more than it does radical Muslim terrorists. For the very reasons our military chooses to use the AR platform, We the People have purchased AR's in prodigious volumes. Millions of private citizens own an AR type rifle for a huge number of reasons; the AR15 and its variants are today's Musket. Although so few have been used in any type of crime that they are statistically insignificant, this is the type of weapon the ruling elite want restricted. Why??? Look at the damage caused and resources it took government forces in California to stop one man armed with an AR who targeted the police. They had SWAT teams with military grade weapons and tactics, they had helicopters, and they had numbers. Still it took days and disproportionate casualties to stop one determined man. Consider how many people own AR's, if a small number of them, shall we say 3%, chose to take up arms against law enforcement; it could and would cripple the nations law enforcement agencies. The ruling elite want more restrictive gun control because they fear the people; as well they should and with good reason.
Today on 9/11 we heard the news and so did the ruling elite. We the People will not be disarmed. It's not a Democrat/Republican thing. In Sen. Angela Giron's district, Pueblo Colorado, 43% of the registered voters are Democrats and only 23% Republicans, yet 57% voted to recall her. A massive amounts of money from outside Colorado was spent, the overwhelming majority of that money was spent to stop and fight the recall of Morse and Giron. The results of the recall scare the crap out of the Ruling Elite.
The news on this 12 anniversary of 9/11 gives us hope that the ideas which formed this nation still exist and stand strong. As Thomas Jefferson said, "When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." The news today is a clear message that the We the People will not tolerate tyranny.
