Saturday, 2-23-13, was the Day of Resistance in the United States; there were over 100 sites across the country that participated in this momentous event. I was privileged to join over 150 of my fellow American citizens in not only showing our support for the 2nd Amendment, also showing our support for FREEDOM! I have included a few pictures from the event.
As this tyrannical government continues this charade of talking gun control, I was reminded what this is really ALL about … and that is people control. Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service agent for 16 years, gave a powerful and inspiring speech just 2 days ago at the Guns Across America Rally in Annapolis, Md. He eloquently and passionately told that crowd that the goal of this administration in the White House is to gain control of the people via their attempted usurping of our 2nd amendment and of the greatest document in the history of the world for peace and prosperity … the U.S. Constitution.
As a Navy Veteran who proudly served as a Hospital Corpsman on active duty from 1980-1988 under the greatest President in modern times, Ronald Reagan, I swore the oath to be obedient and to defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies both foreign and domestic. The charlatans in the White House have no clue what freedom, love of God and country is about, they instead would have you think that they know what is best for us when they are just a bunch of buffoons who think the American people are too dumb to think and choose what is important for them.
Once upon a time, not so long ago, the hateful rhetoric of class division, anti-economic freedom, and venomous demonizing of anyone who calls himself Christian would not have been tolerated; and in fact perpetrators of such would probably have been investigated in one form or another.
As usual the national and local media continue their mantra as “useful idiots” for this administration; believe it or not there was NO local media (ABC, NBC, CBS) presence today at the event and peaceful demonstration in Miami (what a surprise). There was one camera crew from some station called RT, I did not know what that meant until I approached the reporter – he told me he works with Russia Today and works out of the Miami office. He thought that this peaceful demonstration in support of the 2nd Amendment and Freedom was newsworthy enough to cover and they are not even affiliated with the United States … what a pathetic statement for our worthless media here. CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, PBS and CBS should all be fired for Dereliction of Duty’ it is shameful the way they follow their liberal anti-American agenda from their vile bosses.
We all know what the 2nd Amendment is about, however, I believe that many of us have forgotten what the 3rd Amendment says so here goes, “No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law”.
Our Founding Fathers guided by divine inspiration from God himself included this 3rd Amendment so that we the people could protect ourselves, our family, our property with our guns from any soldier; and I for one continue to follow the solemn oath that I uttered early in 1980.
Loving Life Always!
