Yet today, due to the breakdown in education wrought by leftist academicians and media talking heads, many Americans presume a “well regulated militia” and “shall not be infringed” are polar opposites; that the former represents a collective right viewpoint while the latter presents the right as an individual one. Such presumptions create a false dichotomy that pits one phrase against another in an amendment where both phrases were meant to be of mutual benefit.
Consider the Second Amendment: “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.”
At the outset we must understand that the individual right to keep and bear arms is not in spite of the mention of a militia but because of it. In other words, because the militia played a key role in the Founders’ minds, and is intended to play a key role even now, the right to possess arms, with which to gather in militia, “shall not be infringed.”
FK – So when is the Breitbart militia forming up?
Why hasn’t Trump brought the troops home and activated the militias and had them hunt our real enemies who are here and always have been?
FK – Sorry, but they wouldn’t be able to quit and go home. We have millions in this country that prefer slavery to liberty and will happily kill to enforce that preference. There will always be Negans.
Every time your commie ‘friends’ vote they vote to kill you.
The problem really is not a standing military but the lack of courage and resolve among those who claim they want to live free. Getting them to even publicly state what will be required to fix this mess if it can be fixed much less actually prepare for it is akin to looking for claws on sheep.
If we had the govt. we should have we’d still need a standing military of some sort. Washington struggled all through the revolution to create a professional army. When they utilized the militia they never knew if they would perform well as they sometimes did or run screaming like little girls. Indeed ‘professional trained soldiers and Marines’ are capable of such.
Technology is such today that without it I doubt we could hold this continent many more generations without it and we may not anyway. We are a nation ripe for invasion or destruction from within, which is well advanced.
A big bloody mess is coming, one way or another. Maybe not in my existence here but it will come. The govt.s are broke. When they are forced to acknowledge this much will change.
What we so desperately need is a re-orientation of values. They should be held to their oaths to protect the Bill of Rights at the threat of their very lives.
Every cop and soldier, Marine, airman, sailor, coast guardsmen should be required to memorize them before being allowed to exercise any authority over anyone or their property.
It should be ruled not only legal but highly necessary to kill superior officers who issue orders to the contrary. They should be held to the same standard when issued similar orders by their civilian superiors.
If Trump wants to ‘make amerika great again’ he and all his followers must realize we can’t be great unless we are free otherwise our ‘greatness’ is equal to any Reich or reign or soviet or bloody conqueror of the past.
BRING THEM HOME and let them HUNT our real ENEMIES!
We should’ve kept our troops home from Vietnam and Korea and had them kill the commies here first. We need to bring them home now.
If the military were fighting for our freedom they’d all be here.
The empire’s military hasn’t fought a war for Liberty since 1865 and the bad guys won that one.
FK – See my response above. If you don’t understand click on the links below and educate yourself. If you do click on them anyway and share.
Compromise or cowardice?:
FK – The BATF Nazi trash have proven to be murderers in the past and regularly railroad people into prison. Why are the republicrats still funding them?
Compromising on a right one already possesses is a fool’s game. When the commie trash cry ‘compromise’ they mean in their direction, the only direction they ever willingly move in with the end goal being our total submission to them.
If you want to make the fakers squirm ask them what they plan to do when we’re told to ‘turn them in’ and a commie or ‘conservative’ SCOTUS rules it’s OK.
Hint: The SCOTUS is NOT the final arbiter of our rights! WE ARE!!!!!!!!!
Maybe one of their employees is beginning to get a clue:
FK – When will ‘conservatives’ and ‘libertarians’ summon the courage to stand up and say “Enough is enough!???”
If the BATF Nazis did ‘what’s right’ they’d all commit suicide or start hunting “Liberal”(commie) trash instead of real Americans.
And from the jackass’ mouth:
FK – The ‘great hypocrisy’ is the probably willful negligence of the nra to say what will/must happen if we’re ever told to ‘turn them in.’ Those who claim the Second Amendment and pretend our modern government is our friend or the amerikan communist insurgency and the globalists that fund it are just ‘misled’ ARE WORSE THAN OUR ENEMIES!
THEY ARE WAGING WAR. THEY KNOW IT. WHY DON’T YOU????
Are you passing your slavery on to your children?:
FK – It will be up to that tiny minority as it always is.
Another marker in a long slow escalation of our civil war, until they tell us to ‘turn them in.’ Time to put on the big boy pants.
Attempting reason with communists and many ‘conservatives’ is akin to slitting one’s wrists and jumping into shark infested waters.
We must make amerika free.
“The whole secret lies in confusing the enemy, so that he cannot fathom our real intent.” – Sun Tzu
Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting. – Sun Tzu
As for our current situation there is only one fix for it, if it can be fixed. But western so-called men have been de-backboned and de-nutted and shrink from the idea of shedding blood when the tree of Liberty cries out for it in such a plaintive and alarming way.
We have a representative republic, guaranteed to every state, not a democracy.
We have a Bill of Rights that acknowledges rights we are born with, not granted or created by any government.
We vote with the knowledge that voting is the most violent act anyone can participate in because voting is electing someone to hire someone to stick a government gun in our neighbors’ faces and force our version of reality on them at the threat of their very lives.
We stand ready to protect our Liberty and the Liberty of our neighbors, not destroy it, via any version of authoritarianism, of any age or place.
We are prepared with knowledge and force of arms to make war against and kill if necessary those who would destroy our Bill of Rights whether they represent domestic or foreign enemies.
We do not lie to ourselves, our families, our friends, our business associates, our descendants, our enemies, about these things and do not EVER tolerate those who would have us do so.
If the troops were fighting for our freedom they’d all be here.
FK – How long have we had the internet? 20 years plus. There’s no excuse for the evil they do. Have the klintons changed? A large percentage of them never will. Their arrogance/hubris will not permit it. Large numbers of them will have to be ejected or eradicated. Time to wake up and grow up and put on the big boy pants.
When a tool-using monkey has committed itself to a false belief system to the point it’s willing to kill you over it nothing will move it but force.
Maybe now Belushi can stop rolling in his grave:
FK – Gee, SNL is finally funny again, after 30+ years.
