Must READ Examiner Article

One blogger in particular, who portrays a modern-day Thomas Paine in a series of popular You Tube videos, decries the assault on liberty by the Obama administration. For this he was summoned to the White House to 'give an account.'

The Math of American Death During Revolution

"I confront thou shall not kill each time I aim and pull that trigger and fight for our freedom."
From the movie Shooter
As usually happens when I am not working I spend time shooting/cleaning, watching a movie or three, doing some light reading and finish up with some sort of impromptu lesson for the kids. I am a firm believer in "Peace Through Superior Firepower," sadly from my side of the fence so does my government. By attempting civilian disarmament they are inviting bloodshed. I do not believe it is their goal, yet it will be another unintended consequence. I hope and often look for ways to prove I am wrong, but that is sometimes a chore. As Americans we have a history of both resistance to tyranny, and deadly proficiency when we put our minds to something. Only twice before have we as a people directed that proficiency at ourselves, and the can help us to hypothesize future results.
The first time we won our independence from King Georges rule. That cost an estimated 50,000 plus lives directly and approximately twice that in indirect casualties.(My numbers from sites like this) There was an estimated 2,418,000 population in the American colonies in 1775. That is a casualty rate of just over 2% of the population.
When we went "brother vs brother" in the War Between the States that number skyrocketed to over 500,000 direct deaths.(My numbers again from sites like this) I could not find even an estimate of the indirect casualties. Estimated population of both Republics was a combined 31,000,000. 1.6% of Americans died in those 4 years.
Using these historical events as a benchmark and today's US population at an estimated 305,000,000 persons, 1.8% direct deaths..... that is just under 5.5 million people dead. Add to that the cost of "collateral damage" and we are looking at a very bloody country. I am not even looking at the actual money, psychological, or logistical problems that would result. The stand off is building, 5,500,000 will lay dead. What have you done to prepare?

234 Years, True Words Still

No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The questing before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings....

So some people voted for "Hope, Action, and Change", now they are told:
"Change doesn't happen overnight," Obama said at a town-hall style event in California on Thursday, seeming to acknowledge the difficulty in translating campaign pledges into actual policy. Obama said: "Patience."
He followed up with the poignant
"We are moving systematically to bring about change. But change is hard."
"It's hard work," where have we heard that before

Hope and change.... still waiting for the first change. Why do we even have campaigns anymore they are all BS. I am getting tired of politicians believing that no one remembers yesterday

Consequences and Repercussions

"To all elected officials, sheriffs, deputies, marshals, constables, sundry law enforcement officers, and military personnel. As a Vietnam era veteran and former peace officer myself, I respect your service and understand that most of you value our Liberty as much as any citizen. For the few who may not fully comprehend what that means, this is a reminder that as a condition of your employment as one of our public servants, you were required to swear an oath to defend the Constitution of these United States of America. We the people who employ you, take this oath seriously and regard any breach of same treasonous.
Be advised that hereafter your sovereign employers will consider any order to disarm private citizens, in any jurisdiction within these United States, a brazen act of treason. Further, any officer who obeys such a treasonous order, and attempts to confiscate our arms, is himself engaged in an act of treason. Keep in mind, “I was just following orders…” never has been, and never will be, considered a valid defense for treason. Anyone receiving such an order has the solemn duty to arrest immediately the traitorous fool who made it; and, most regrettably, any fellow officers inclined to execute it. Failing that, it would be advisable to resign and get out of a conspicuous uniform immediately."

Random Math for Liberty

9+12= 21...2+1=3... I Am 3

"9-11 left us all stunned and horrified, but there was a 9-12. That was the day when we decided that we weren't defeated. That was the day when we weren't concerned about Red and Blue states, political parties, or our differences. That was the day we stood up as Americans, united and determined.

We stood with those who mourned. We stood with those who served. We stood against our enemies. We stood up for freedom.

We are faced with yet another attack on our freedoms. This one doesn't come in the form of airplanes, but is an assault on our core freedoms, principles and values. Our Constitution hangs by a thread, our economy has been sold, our rights trampled, our future compromised. So we are faced with a choice: Do we bury our heads in the sand and trust in our leaders to make everything right? Do we sit in stunned silence as our country falls down around us? Or do we rise from the ashes and again resolve to stand together as Americans?"

From Here

For an explanation of 3 read here

"History, for good or ill, is made by determined minorities. We are one such minority. So too are the current enemies of the Founders' Republic. What remains, then, is the test of will and skill to determine who shall shape the future of our nation.The Three Percent today are gun owners who will not disarm, will not compromise and will no longer back up at the passage of the next gun control act. Three Percenters say quite explicitly that we will not obey any further circumscription of our traditional liberties and will defend ourselves if attacked. We intend to maintain our God-given natural rights to liberty and property, and that means most especially the right to keep and bear arms. Thus, we are committed to the restoration of the Founders' Republic, and are willing to fight, die and, if forced by any would-be oppressor, to kill in the defense of ourselves and the Constitution that we all took an oath to uphold against enemies foreign and domestic."

Stand True and Vigilant. Remember who you are and where we come from.
