T.L. Davis: That Is Not Who We Are

Blaming guns for the murderous impulses of terrorists is not who we are. We are Americans and we believe in self-defense. Lying prone on the ground hoping people will not murder us is not who we are. The sudden eruption of gun purchases, or at least the background requests in order to do so, was as American as it gets. That is who we are, we are not dependent on the government to protect ourselves or our families, we’ll handle that.

When Americans recognize that the enemy is within the gates, they prepare to defend themselves, especially when it has become openly apparent that the government is complicit in holding the gates open for the enemy to pass through. The government is not on the side of the American citizen. It has been a long time since the government felt a duty to protect and defend the citizens of the nation. We are basically ATM’s for their political supporters. If this were ever disputed it was made clear with the passage of the Stimulus Act, which did nothing else, but fund political supporters. Without our consent, they bailed out the banks, bought up toxic assets, purchased shares of bankrupt  auto companies. All they had to do was go to the citizen ATM and put us further in debt. That might be how Chicago politicians do business, but that is not who we are.

Now, they have dropped the pretense of caring and simply tell us to shut up and go away, but not before we pay our taxes. This is what happened during Obama’s interruption of the Sunday football games and don’t think that was on accident, either. The biggest ratings in television are the weekly football games. Where else would Obama get an audience? It was a capitulation that it was orchestrated between the end of the afternoon games and before the Sunday night game. Pathetic, but I don’t think he really wanted to trot out his gun-grabbing agenda in front of the football audience. That was a miscalculation, in my opinion.

Well it might not be who some of us are but it is enough of us that our liberty has eroded and continues to erode.

I would suggest that we start giving thought to why we enjoyed a goodly amount of liberty up until the 1960s when immigration laws were changed and we began flooding the country with third world immigrants. If, as it appears to me, the country was made worse by the changes then how will continuing down the same path improve our lot or the lot of our children?

It is an unpleasantry of life that needs to have rational historically based thought applied. Should we suffer the insults and slanders rather than looking for answers? If the founders suffered being called rebels, lead shot, and the cold steel of the British shall we preserve liberty by doing any less?

And yes religion is also needs to be addressed. How can religions so diametrically opposed, atheism is a religion too, ever result in a peaceful society? Shall the house divided yet stand?
