The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their Houses, and Farms, are to be pillaged and destroyed, and they consigned to a State of Wretchedness from which no human efforts will probably deliver them. The fate of unborn Millions will now depend, under God, on the Courage and Conduct of this army—Our cruel and unrelenting Enemy leaves us no choice but a brave resistance, or the most abject submission; this is all we can expect—We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die: Our own Country’s Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions—The Eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, and we shall have their blessings, and praises, if happily we are the instruments of saving them from the Tyranny meditated against them. Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and shew the whole world, that a Freeman contending for Liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth… George Washington, July 2, 1776
Today, Patriots in Kansas and in other States should support the Kansas Attorney General, it’s Governor and some within her Legislature. They have initiated the process of reclaiming inalienable Sovereignty for the Kansas people from a Tyrannical, Progressive Federal Government including the Insurgent, Obama Administration by using one of the most overlooked tools in the American arsenal… the exegetical interpretation of “The U.S. Constitution”.
Although, we must continue to be guarded in our praise of any man, as they often turn to the opposite of their stated moral and ethical standards only to be replaced by a willingness of corruption, thereby leaving only political ambition and the desire of absolute tyrannical power… and, also considering… Kansas enjoys a record of electing Progressives like Kathlene Sebelius, Former Governor from 2003 to 2009 and the current abortion pusher in charge of Health and Human Services for Barry Obama, her record has not exactly been one, as a Constitutional stalwart has it?
Is Kansas on the verge of reclaiming it’s sovereignty with Senate Bill 102? It has sure gotten Eric Holders attention. SB 102, full text and history. The Legislative Summary as follows;
Second Amendment Protection Act; SB 102SB 102 establishes the Second Amendment Protection Act.First, the bill excludes from federal regulation any personal firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition manufactured commercially or privately and owned in Kansas.The bill provides that for as long as any such personal firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition remains within the borders of Kansas, it is not subject to any federal law, regulation, or authority.Second, the bill prevents any federal agent or contracted employee, any state employee, or any local authority from enforcing any federal regulation or law governing any personal firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition manufactured commercially or privately and owned in Kansas, provided it remains within the borders of Kansas. In the process of a criminal prosecution, the bill precludes any arrest or detention prior to a trial for a violation of the Act.Finally, the bill allows a county or district attorney or the Attorney General to seek injunctive relief in court to enjoin certain federal officials from enforcing federal law regarding a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately and owned in the state of Kansas and that remains within the borders of Kansas.
As we know, Eric Holder, Chief Law Enforcement officer at the “Department of Just Us” sent a threatening letter to the current Kansas Governor reminding him of Mr. Holders inept interpretation of the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment. See the Letter from Eric Holder Here. As you can see his interpretation of the Founders intent is very skewed and Progressive, much like his interpretation of Hate Crimes, Election Fraud and Gun Running and the current Administration’s Support of terrorism… If you think that is a stretch, ask any Mexican citizen if they think the current ongoing slaughter of their country men, woman and children is not terror. There are very few stronger restrictions on Gun ownership than in Mexico, as the saying goes… “Outlaw Guns, and only Outlaws will have Guns”.
Eric Holders letter garnered a response from Kansas Secretary of State, Kris W. Kobach, explaining his true and correct Constitutional Rights, not to mention his Obligation of Oath to the Sovereign people in the State of Kansas. Educating Mr. Holder as to his responsibilities to “NOT” enforce unconstitutional laws. Read the Letter Here
The Constitution is not a living document designed to fit the whims of a Tyrannical power, no matter what branch of Government it has derived from, it is the very Foundation of our Laws (or was intended to be). We have lost, to a great extent of the original intent of our Republic through mindless Progressive education and apathy among the American people, it is heartening to see it being upheld at a State level as Kansas is doing… better keep an eye on this one it could be the next “Shot Heard Around the World”.
We will either Restore the Founders Constitutional vision of America or Die in the Attempt…
“Since private and public Vices, are in Reality, though not always apparently, so nearly connected, of how much Importance, how necessary is it, that the utmost Pains be taken by the Public, to have the Principles of Virtue early inculcated on the Minds even of children, and the moral Sense kept alive, and that the wise institutions of our Ancestors for these great Purposes be encouraged by the Government. For no people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.” –Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, 4 November 1775
Video: Amanda Collins testifies before the Colorado Senate Judiciary committee 3.4.13, Amanda has a “legal” concealed carry permit, she was attending classes at a “Gun Free Zone” Colorado college. She had left her weapon at home to attend classes. At the end of the day she was on her way to her car to leave the campus when she was attacked and raped.
After her testimony, Amanda was informed by Progressive Colorado Senator, Evie Hudak, Jefferson County, District 19, that the Senator had statistics from a Progressive Anti Gun group, suggesting that if she would have had her gun during the rape, the attacker would have taken it away and used it on her… It’s not her fault, this Progressive, Soros, Bloomberg puppet was actually Elected by Jefferson County Citizens.
A DECLARATION OF WAR
Colorado is rich with the history of Civil War… America is also rich with the history of Civil War… better start figuring out where you Stand?
As citizens rush to the gun stores to buy needed weapons and accessories in an attempt to protect their families from the encroachment of Tyrannical State and Federal power upon their Second Amendment RIGHTS. We Await!
2013 will be the marked in all Calendars bearing witness as to what direction the Progressives will take our beloved State Colorado. Understanding the Socialist direction of our State and Federal Government that has been incrementally underway for over 143 years has not been easy, many road blocks have been used to block our understanding of common American History.
Indoctrination has been the order of the day. Socialist, Neo-Fabian Progressives have been hiding in plain sight among our scholars, politicians and normally industrious society. If you haven’t noticed the sense of unease in the air you are most likely part of the problem.
Colorado has experienced a great deal of change within recent years, Californicators, Land of Lincolners, South American 3rd worlders and other Progressives have been trickling… “some flooding”.. into the State’s populace increasingly changing the soul of our western heritage, what has become much more apparent in recent years is… they aren’t in hiding anymore, they are confident in their installed Democracy and think they have destroyed the last vestiges of our Republic… maybe they have, only time and Patriot effort will tell.
When the words below were put to paper , our Founders found themselves in the same situation as we do today… In some ways, it is much worse today. Through our ignorance, apathy and in some cases direct, willful violation of the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Oath we find ourselves in a dire situation. Read the words below and examine our current position in History, are you ready to fight for your rights or just wait until they are gone, then call your favorite radio show to bitch about it? The Progressive Political Class has Declared War on YOU! least we forget, the Revolutionary War was Started because of GUN CONTROL… “MOLON LABE III”
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. 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.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

The Right to Self-Defense
by Andrew P. Napolitano
Recently by Andrew P. Napolitano: Obama’s False Alarms
To those who have killed innocents among us, obedience to law is the last of their thoughts. And to those who believe that the Constitution means what it says, the essence of this debate is not about the law; it is about personal liberty in a free society. It is the exercise of this particular personal liberty – the freedom to defend yourself when the police cannot or will not and the freedom to use weapons to repel tyrants if they take over the government – that the big-government crowd fears the most.
Let’s be candid: All government fears liberty. By its nature, government is the negation of liberty. God has given us freedom, and the government has taken it away. George Washington recognized this when he argued that government is not reason or eloquence but force. If the government had its way, it would have a monopoly on force.
Government compels, restrains and takes. Thomas Jefferson understood that when he wrote that our liberties are inalienable and endowed by our Creator, and the only reason we have formed governments is to engage them to protect our liberties. We enacted the Constitution as the supreme law of the land to restrain the government. Yet somewhere along the way, government got the idea that it can more easily protect the freedom of us all from the abuses of a few by curtailing the freedom of us all. I know that sounds ridiculous, but that’s where we are today.
The anti-Second Amendment crowd cannot point to a single incident in which curtailing the freedom of law-abiding Americans has stopped criminals or crazies from killing. It is obvious that criminals don’t care what the law says because they think they can get away with their violations of it. And those unfortunates who are deranged don’t recognize any restraint on their own behavior, as they cannot mentally distinguish right from wrong and cannot be expected to do so in the future, no matter what the law says.
When the Second Amendment was written and added to the Constitution, the use of guns in America was common. At the same time, King George III – whom we had just defeated and who was contemplating another war against us, which he would start in 1812 – no doubt ardently wished that he had stripped his colonists of their right to self-defense so as to subdue their use of violence to secede from Great Britain. That act of secession, the American Revolution, was largely successful because close to half of the colonists were armed and did not fear the use of weaponry.
If the king and the Parliament had enacted and enforced laws that told them who among the colonists owned guns or that limited the power of the colonists’ guns or the amount of ammunition they could possess, our Founding Fathers would have been hanged for treason. One of the secrets of the Revolution – one not taught in public schools today – is that the colonists actually had superior firepower to the king. The British soldiers had standard-issue muskets, which propelled a steel ball or several of them about 50 yards from the shooter. But the colonists had the long gun – sometimes called the Kentucky or the Tennessee – which propelled a single steel ball about 200 yards, nearly four times as far as the British could shoot. Is it any wonder that by Yorktown in 1781, the king and the Parliament had lost enough men and treasure to surrender?
The lesson here is that free people cannot remain free by permitting the government – even a popularly elected one that they can unelect – to take their freedoms away. The anti-freedom crowd in the government desperately wants to convey the impression that it is doing something to protect us. So it unconstitutionally and foolishly seeks, via burdensome and intrusive registration laws, laws restricting the strength of weapons and the quantity and quality of ammunition and, the latest trick, laws that impose financial liability on law-abiding manufacturers and sellers for the criminal behavior of some users, to make it so burdensome to own a gun that the ordinary folks who want one will give up their efforts to obtain one.
We cannot let ourselves fall down this slippery slope. The right to self-defense is a natural individual right that pre-exists the government. It cannot morally or constitutionally be taken away absent individual consent or due process. Kings and tyrants have taken this right away. We cannot let a popular majority take it away, for the tyranny of the majority can be as destructive to freedom as the tyranny of a madman.
