We must not loose faith in each other.
The guilty always sees their opponents through their own lenses. The liar assumes all lie and the purveyor of racist hate speech thinks all others speak from the same motivations as they. When a left wing anarchist, no friend of any conservative cause, took out his rage on the congresswoman and the nearby crowd, the radical left can’t even wait for the ambulances to unload before aggressively shifting their guilt to every talk show host they hope to silence. Shame on the blamers for taking common figures of speech that all parties have used to try and to now virtually accuse republicans of murder. That vitriol is exactly what Hitler used to shift the blame from that famous fire to the Jews as a pretext for his nefarious agenda. When the Democratic Socialist Party of Germany took power in the 20s– it demands a passivated population and that means a powerless, dependent population. One of their first moves was to confiscate the people’s weapons – for the safety of the children of course!
Weapons for personal protection are already so rare now in public settings that godless psychopaths know they will have no opposition as they slaughter at Columbine, Virginia Tech, Fort Hood, our own 4 officers and now the disaster at Tucson, Arizona. You can thank the gun banners for that. Our founding fathers could not have prophesied better our day then when they wrote the following:
Thomas Jefferson: Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. (1764)
Thomas Paine: "...arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them." (1775.)
In other words Gun Free Zones are simply Free Killing Zones.
If the good citizens of Tucson at that gathering had been commonly armed instead of being neutered by fear of reprisal, this horrid mischief and the other tragedies would have been greatly mitigated – perhaps prevented as most of these crazies are demonstrated cowards.
Citizens, We must trust in the greater virtue of the people. That is what we have almost lost. We will yet lose our free society if we don’t believe in each other. A free society depends on the virtue of its people – otherwise a police state like the Democratic Socialists of Germany tried to create will be our end.
My good neighbors, Choose faith and virtue.
