1 nation under God, indivisible, with liberty &justice for all.
&to the republic for which it stands, 1 nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty, &justice for all.
with dubious stats &a media adroitly prone to twisting truth, you're beguiled into believing there's a school shooting every day in the USA. Obama repeats the "it's easier to buy a gun than a book" lie &companies change policy over a 9 year old's plastic straw research. don't be alarmed you're imbued in a fake news world; we're in a black mirror episode where all media has wound up the little people into thinking exactly what they want &marching in the streets for their rights to be taken away. when Kendall Jenner &Hailey Beiber showed up to "march for our lies**" Hollywood production in NYC, they were armed with their body guards ?! us peasants can't afford the luxuries of the bougie. celebs are tools for virtue signaling. snap out of zombie setting; engage critical thinking !
so, what's the point of the 2a? it's your right to protect yourself against a tyrannical gov. (no matter if the gov protects it or not). how awesome !! what a great equalizer (for women also). so why shouldn't a "well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, keep &bear arms" ?? it's not about hunting or sporting or "feeling like a man"; it's about being the freest nation in the world. we can defend ourselves against a gov gone nuts; it's happened, see history. bring on the silencers, bump stocks, etc.
psychos don't need gun to kill; see UK &bow &arrow, or knives. there are over 2,000 gun laws, does that stop predators amongst us? why force innocents to become sitting ducks? Wapo concluded that not 1 law would have stopped school shooting. (see gun control in Brazil also, or LA, or Chicago). "we must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than lawbreaker. it is time to restore American precept that each individual is accountable for his action," Reagan. a polite society is armed. it's no wonder criminals look for "gun free zones." again, lefty policies getting people killed..
like all Left errrything, there's never any discourse. (they don't have good ideas). goal, with help of media is to label opponent racist /uncaring of gun violence. anything to stir pot long as real solution is not attained. the virtue signaling continues: Hollywood, rich off gun violence; Rolling Stone who put a terrorist on cover; &now doctors, responsible for 10% of all death in the USA (#3 leading cause of death; 250k dead from medical errors) go after a non-sequitur of course: NRA, a private company.
Dems don't have the balls to say what they mean. they'd have to be honest about their never ending pursuit of power. why wouldn't schools be armed like a bank or an airport? "is this a prison?" they answer. because, if they really believe key to ending gun violence were less guns in circulation, confiscating weapons /a gun ban would be the only solution. what commies.. ! "turn in your guns," said the Soviet Union in '29; then, 20m political dissidents are killed for 20 years. "turn in your guns," said Germans in 1935, who proceeded to gas millions. "turn in your guns," said the Chinese in 1935, when another 20m dissidents are slaughtered from '48-'52. "turn in your guns" in Uganda, when gun control was established in '70; 8 years later, 300,000 Christians are dead. "turn in your guns," Cambodians; in 1956, they get gun control &from '75 -'77, 1m are dead. let me repeat: "shall not be infringed." thank God for founding Fathers with foresight.
"nothing of importance can be separated entirely from its social effect, which is politics, or from its ultimate value, which is religion. I never discuss anything except politics &religion. there is nothing else to discuss." -GK Chesterton
God shed His grace on thee. &crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea. America !
i'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free &I won't forget the men who died &gave that right to me &I gladly stand up &defend her still today. cause there ain't no doubt, I love this land. God bless the USA.
"we, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, &secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves &our posterity, do ordain &establish the Constitution for the US of A."
God bless America, land that I love; stand beside her &guide her through the night with the Light from above.
people of TX &all Americans:
i am besieged by a thousand or more of the mexicans under santa anna, i have sustained a continual bombardment &cannonade for 24 hrs &have not lost a man. the enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise the garrison are to be put to the sword if the fort is taken, i have answered the demand with a cannon shot &our flag still waves proudly from the walls, ----i shall never surrender or retreat --- i call on you in the name of liberty, of patriotism &everything dear to the American character to come to our aid, with all dispatch. the enemy is receiving reinforcements daily &will no doubt increase to 3 or 4 thousand in 4 or 5 days. if this call is neglected, i am determined to sustain myself as long as possible &die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor &that of his country: victory or death- P.S the Lord is on our side. -will b. travis 2.24.1836
4 score &7y ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, &dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived &so dedicated, can long endure. we are met on a great battle-field of that war. we have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. it is altogether fitting &proper that we should do this. but, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate --we can not consecrate --we can not hallow --this ground. the brave men, living &dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. the world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. it is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. it is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us --that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion --that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain --that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, &that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth -Abe, Gettysburg. 11/19/1863
