… of Rights outlines what it can’t do. This positioned
to be a country of free men with all the rights and liberties befitting those living in freedom. And while this may be 180 degrees out of sync with life as we experience it in
today, it is the way our Founders envisioned things nonetheless.
When George Washington wrote that “free people ought … to be armed,” he gave us a clue as to the kind of
the Founders envisioned. It was one where the government stayed within its bounds, carrying out its limited duties while leaving the people free to exercise their rights and liberties. Thomas Jefferson spoke to this when he described the “good government” as one that “shall restrain men from injuring one another [and] shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement.” In other words, the “good government” is one that enforces the law, thus preserving order, but otherwise remains within the limited parameters established for it, so that people can go about their business, whatever that business may be.
And it’s important to note that part of the reason for a limited government was our Founders’ goal of keeping government out of the people’s way: of leaving the people room to exercise their rights, one of which was the right to keep and bear arms—the Second Amendment. In exercising this right, the people not only fulfilled George Washington’s maxim , but they actually complemented the work the government was doing in preserving the civic integrity of the republic.
In other words, by being armed, free people helped defend “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
Our Founders understood that every natural right has a corresponding duty. So it wasn’t just that the people were free to keep and bear arms, they were actually expected to do so. Or to put it another way: because free men possessed a right to life, they also possessed a duty to defend their life. Therefore, while the government was handling matters like foreign policy, the armed citizen would defend his own life, the lives of his family members, and his possessions.
When, in history, we come across a people who were disarmed by their respective governments, it’s easier to understand and appreciate the vision and foresight of our Founding Fathers: easier to understand why we “ought … to be armed.”
For example, during the 1930s Mahatma Gandhi bemoaned the fact that
had forcibly disarmed his people. He saw it as not simply a denial of the right to possess a weapon but as something that cut much deeper: “Spiritually, compulsory disarmament has made us unmanly … has made us think we cannot look after ourselves or put up a defense against foreign aggression, or even defend our homes and families.”
Now, we have a professed Communist President, named Barack Hussein (“Insane”) Obama in the White House, who is the proponent of his socialized medicine scheme called “Obamacare”. Socialized medicine has failed in ALL socialist countries it has been implemented in. It has been an utter failure and financial debacle in the
Socialized medicine will create rationing of medicine for those over 50 and on Medicare or Medicaid. It establishes an independent board of doctors and health care experts (not your own doctors who know better) who may or may not have expertise in areas in which you need certain medical care. These boards, now known as “death panels”, will make the life-and-death decisions of what care to provide based on cost-effectiveness criteria and favoritism on who supports Obama or the current Marxist regime in power. It will only be a matter of time before everyone will have a number tattoed to their arms or foreheads, or be implanted with a computer chip to house the history of every aspect of one’s life.
This is exactly what the 1939 Nazi “T-4” healthcare policy imposed by Adolf Hitler was all about. And, how many people did he kill with denial of medical care due to rationing and for the implementation of his “Aryan Race”, or use for medical experimentation?
Let us not forget that Adolf Hitler had to disarm his people through gun control and then gun confiscation to reach this level of insanity. Today, most of
, under this similar socialized, government-controlled healthcare, has had strict gun control and confiscation. Government needs to confiscate the right to defend oneself from government tyranny in order to impose “life-and-death” control over the populace.
In comes ex-Nazi and the murderer of thousands of his own Jewish people, billionaire George Soros. George Soros has amassed a $13 Billion dollar fortune (as of 2009) that started with stealing from his own Jewish people in
before marching them into the cattle cars headed to the Nazi concentration camps. George Soros was interviewed about this by “60 Minutes” reporter Steve Kroft and told Kroft about his Nazi days that “it was the best time of his life”.
George Soros has been the “puppeteer” for El Presidente Barack Obama and the financial supporter of the Democrat( now Marxist) Party in the
. He has been a major contributor of Marxist “One World Government” through his “straw” organizations like the Open Society Institute, Arab American Institute, Bill of Rights Defense Committee, Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, NAACP, National Council of La Raza, The Sentencing Project (to depict American justice system as racist), Center for Community Change, Gamaliel Foundation, Ruckus Society (to create non-violent protest demonstrations), American Institute for Social Justice, People for the American Way, Democracy for America, Center for Economic Policy and Research, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (an individual with great influence having ability to manipulate and input into the government’s budget), Ella Baker Center for Human Rights (founded by communists), Project Vote (major supporter of the corrupt ACORN organization involved in voter fraud), Progressive States Network, and Brennan Center for Justice—three organizations devoted to move American politics to the left.
Soros has set up and funded an organization to support socialized medicine in the
. Health Care for American Now (HCAN) is a vast network of organizations supporting, ideally, a “single-payer” model where the federal government would be in charge of financing and administering the entire
healthcare system. During the political debate over “Obamacare” in 2009 and 2010,HCAN’s strategy was to try to achieve such a system incrementally, first by implementing a “public option”—i.e., a government insurance agency to “compete” with private insurers, so that Americans would be “no longer at the mercy of the private insurance industry.” Because such an agency would not need to show a profit in order to remain in business, and because it could tax and regulate its private competitors in whatever fashion it pleased, this “public option” would inevitably force private insurers out of the industry. In August 2009, Soros pledged to give HCAN $5 million to promote its campaign for reform.
Sorosalso is a major player in control of the mainstream media with his financial fingers controlling CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN. He is a major player and funder of the radical left-wing Media Matters, Independent Media Institute of America, Free Press and actor Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute (which Soros funds through his Soros Documentary Fund to produce “social justice” films that would “spur awareness, action and social change to the left).
Soroseither set up, directs, or is a financial and philosophical supporter to such other left-wing, Marxist organizations such as Catholics for the Common Good, Catholics for Choice, and People Improving Communities through Organizing. Soros is also involved in Institute for Policy Studies, Urban Institute, National League of Cities, Center for Constitutional Rights, ACLU, Human Rights Watch, Constitution Project, Amnesty International, Earthjustice, Green for All,
for Climate Protection, Friends of the Earth, Feminist Majority Foundation, Ms. Foundation for Women, National Partnership for Women and Families, and MoveOn.org.
Now it is has been uncovered that George Soros is working to ban guns in your town. Sound hard to believe? Maybe, but it is amazing what can be done with several billion dollars and an army of left-wing hirelings. Soros is working with the National League of Cities to push big city gun control in small towns all over the country. And right now, Soros and his allies are winning.
Not even well-known anti-gun crusaders like Sarah Brady have been able to accomplish what the Soros-backed League of Cities is doing right now. While the gun rights battle has been raging in
D.C., George Soros has been quietly investing billions (yes, thats with a “B”) in taking power on the state and local levels. The Soros-backed National League of Cities and their affiliated state Municipal Leagues have become a major conduit of Soros aggressive anti-gun agenda.
The National League of Cities stated goals include:
*** Registration for all handguns;
*** Banning semi-automatic firearms;
*** Cracking down on gun shows;
*** A thirty-day waiting period on all gun purchases;
*** Ending the manufacture of 10-round magazines;
*** Gun bans in parks and libraries and other public places.
Just within the last month, a parade of taxpayer funded Municipal stooges, backed by Soros’ gun control organizations showed up to support city-level gun bans in
, the state Municipal League is using tax dollars to push for sweeping self-defense bans in city parks, libraries, transit buses and numerous other public places. The League has also been pushing a similar agenda in
North Carolina and
The gun rights battles in
D.C. are fierce enough. Now were also facing increasing attacks in State Capitols and City Council Chambers nationwide. Why? Because Soros, of the “One World Government” crowd, wants to disarm the American populace to push through draconian, tyrannical laws like the Nazi-styled “Obamacare” in order to control the American population. Soros and his left-wing ilk are attempting to control the American people’s liberties, properties, and lives. The only way to do that is to disarm Americans by severe, draconian gun control laws and confiscation.
Because of Soros and Obama’s support and promulgation of the Nazi-style “T-4” type healthcare, a/k/a “Obamacare”, and the horrendous rationing laws that will ensue to determine who lives and who dies (either by severity of medical condition, age, or political affiliation), both Soros and Obama have committed treason and sedition and should be arrested, tried, convicted, and sentenced to life imprisonment.
By Obama’s signing of “Obamacare”, which emulates the Nazi “T-4” health policies under Adolf Hitler, Obama is now impeachable, because in effect he has proposed legislation which is an exact copy of the legislation for which the Hitler regime was condemned in the post-World War II Nuremburg Trials. Obama’s promotion of this Nazi-style “T-4” individual mandate and rationing elements of his healthcare package is a Nuremburg crime. It is an act of treason against the General Welfare clause of the United States Constitution.
So, it is crystal clear why the Obama regime and Soros want to usurp our Second Amendment Rights. They need to control the population through socialized medicine (which will have government’s tyrannical tentacles into all other aspects of our lives, liberties and properties).
Couple the controlling of people’s lives through draconian, tyrannical healthcare laws with gun control/confiscation and in the end, this is the lesson: disarmed people aren’t free. Rather than handling their own business and protecting their own lives and property, they would have to depend on agents of the state to do these things for them.
However, the United States Supreme Court has held in DeShaney v. Winnebago County, 489 U.S. 189 (1989) that the state/police owes no duty to protect you. It’s not just that the state/police cannot protect you. They don’t even have to come when you call! In most states the government and police owe no legal duty to protect individual citizens from criminal attack. The
District of Columbia
’s highest court held plainly:
“(the)fundamental principle that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any particular individual citizen.”
District of Columbia
, 444 A.2d 1, 4 (D.C. 1981)
And this eye-opener from the U.S. Supreme Court:
“The [Due Process of the 14th Amendment] Clause is phrased as a limitation on the State’s power to act, not as a guarantee of certain minimal levels of safety and security; while it forbids the State itself to deprive individuals of life, liberty, and property without due process of law, its language cannot fairly be read to impose an affirmative obligation on the State to ensure that those interests do not come to harm through other means.” DeShaney v.
It’s not just that the police cannot protect you. They don’t even have to come when you call!
How gun control/confiscation relates to Obama’s Nazi-style “healthcare” laws:
The “Gun Control Act of 1968” was, in many fundamental details, copied directly from Nazi “gun control” laws. Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (“JFPO”) meticulously researched this matter and published a book titled “Gateway to Tyranny”. Presented in this material is documented proof that Senator Thomas Dodd (Democrat and only one of six Senators censured in the 20th Century) had the German Nazi “gun control” laws translated into English, by the Library of Congress, and incorporated into American law as the “Gun Control Act” in 1968.
Under gun control and confiscation, if you resist, you will become just like the 13 Million killed by the Nazi regime, 30 Million killed by the Communist-Stalinist regime, over 40 Million killed by the Communist-Maoist regime, and the millions of others killed because they did not have the power to defend themselves because they had no right to bear arms. Gun control and confiscation has played a major role in the major genocides of the last 100 years.
People like Soros and Obama who support “gun control” might actually have mental health issues. If Obama continues down his path of gun control/confiscation with his Nazi friend George Soros, Congress must move to remove him from office for disability under the 25th Amendment. You might want to read the JPFO publication written by psychiatrist Dr. Sarah Thompson. It is titled “Raging Against Self-Defense”.
The foundational scriptures of the Jewish and Christian religions actually command us to defend ourselves and the innocents around us. Self defense is a foundational precept of the Jewish religion, and therefore, like the Ten Commandments, a foundational precept of the Christian religion. It is not the pacifist’s interpretation: “thou shalt not kill”. The proper translation of the Hebrew text of the Sixth Commandment is “thou shalt not murder”.
Observant Jews and Christians alike are coming to understand that there is a scriptural mandate to defend themselves and the innocent from attack. JPFO has recently helped publish “The Ten Commandments of Self-Defense”. JPFO believes that people are better off living by G-d’s** law than needlessly dying from man’s law.
And so, you may ask me: “What? Should everyone be armed?”
And my answer is: “Yes, absolutely, if they so freely choose.”
Any adult who cannot be entrusted to keep and bear arms cannot be entrusted to circulate freely in our society. Please consider this common sense logic. Such dangerous individuals, if lawfully adjudicated as criminals or dangerously insane, as would be Soros and Obama, should be in prison or institutionalized. To strip Americans of their most fundamental freedom, the right to self defense, is to punish and endanger the vast majority for the misconduct of the very few. We would be selling out our future liberty for an extremely dangerous and illusory false sense of security.
This is why a Nazi like Soros, working in concert with “One World Government” Communist agents like Obama–who would be dictator–are against guns for self-defense. Not only because they want to control the population through the healthcare and gun control/confiscation laws, it is because they are self-professed tohate Jews and Christians alike.
