There are a number of issues facing Americans right now, an attack against large segments of the population, all occurring at once, which shows there is a major battle on the horizon and we are either prepared to stand and fight or lay down and die.
CONFEDERATE FLAG CONTROVERSY
NASCAR has joined the “politically correct” Nazi thought police crowd and decided to “eliminate” the Confederate flag at NASCAR racing events as Walmart baked an ISIS cake for a customer while refusing to bake a Confederate flag cake. Amazon, eBay and awhole host of other large retailers are also banning the sale of Confederate items while still selling NAZI memorabilia.
How many times do we see the very same people that are declaring the Confederate flag a “symbol” of hate because some crazy individual took a picture of himself holding it, also claim that the Islamic religion is peaceful even though it is used by terrorists to massacre thousands of Christians, slaughter thousands of innocentsts and behead people?
They can’t have it both ways and we have to stop letting them do so.
STATE SOVEREIGNTY AND THE WAR ON RELIGION
The Tenth Amendment which states “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people,” has just been rendered null and void by the Supreme Court that has rewritten the Constitution in order to force states to allow gay marriage. This also renders the First Amendment null and void because religious institutions will now be under fire if they do not follow the “federal” mandate.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. — First Amendment
Since when is the Supreme Court in the business of writing laws?
COMING AFTER OUR GUNS – SECOND AMENDMENT
Barack Obama, Hitlery Clinton and other liberal politicians are gearing up for round 100 on gun control Executive Orders and proposed laws to take away our Second Amendment, which states “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.”
CONSTITUTION, BILL OF RIGHTS, DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE – LAW OF THE LAND OR TOILET PAPER?
On June 26, 2015, we published the text of the Declaration of Independence, which in part states “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
I suggest everyone read it, then head over and read the Bill of Rights to get a good idea of how almost all of them NO LONGER APPLY and have been violated at every turn.
WHAT “WE THE PEOPLE” CAN DO
I see headline after headline of people lamenting these violations of our basic rights guaranteed to use under the US constitution, or large retailers deciding for us what we should or should not be allowed to buy, but I see no one actually doing anything about it.
We are not calling for violence. Unless someone is threatening your life or those of your family and you are defending them or yourself, there is no call for violence.
What we are not seeing is an active, united campaign to take our rights back and to hold businesses, politicians, and our government accountable for their violations against “WE THE PEOPLE.”
Make no mistake, if the violations against the people haven’t affected you yet, the next ones will…… eventually they will come after a right you care about and by then it will be too late.
NASCAR fans, participants and vendors can refuse to participate. Boycott their events. Go after their money, their income, and watch how fast they change their tune. The same goes for Amazon, Walmart, eBay and other large retailers. STOP ENABLING THEM to infringe on your rights.
Go after their advertisers, write, call and email them that if they continue advertising on those sites, they will no longer receive your business.
Peacefully protest, make your signs, gather those that are sick and tired of having their rights violated and show up on their doorstep, make sure take photos and videos and upload them to a social image and/or video sharing site, email them to those of us that will publish them.
An example of how well a peaceful protest can work was seen in Florida where a planned “burn the Confederate flag” event was scheduled and protesters showed up and in a non-violent manner managed to prevent the burning of the flag that represents southern pride to them, their heritage, and as the speaker so elequently stated in a short speech, has nothing to with racism and oppression.
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Famous statement and provocative poem written by Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the cowardice of German intellectuals following the Nazis’ rise to power and the subsequent purging of their chosen targets, group after group.
If you don’t stand up and fight, whether it is writing about and exposing these atrocities, or protesting locally, or boycotting those violating other people’s rights….. doing whatever is within your power to do…… then when they come after you and your rights, no one will be left to stand up and fight for you.
