SOVEREIGNTY REQUIRES RESPONSBILITY

(Oct. 4, 2012) — Every day, the primary news produced to be watched or read, is mostly lies, half truths, mixed in with bits of truth that fit nowhere, because they don’t match the rhetoric which news has become. To actually know what takes place in our Nation requires careful scrutiny and long hours. To know what takes place in the world, takes all that and an ouija board on top, given the corruption which defines our government.
Even with all the other things which have taken place this day, the most notable story I read today, was the take-over of a “quickie mart” by a mob of Blacks. They entered the store in Detroit, told the clerk they owned it, and when he protested, they beat him severely.
When the police arrived, the mob disbursed, the police said they could do nothing about it, and within two minutes, left. The mob moved back in, and left again when the police arrived, a game of tag for all intents and purposes. The police had only this advice to give to the owner; “hire a security guard.” Aren’t these the same force which has Special Weapons and Tactics Squads?
From 2007, the left, democrats, socialists, outright communists, and progressives have done their very best to foment racism and having been highly successful, they have substantially altered the tenor and tone from one where most Americans thought we were putting racism behind us at last, slowly, to the point today, which racism is more rampant than at any time in my life since I returned to the States in 1963.
Obviously, we can’t expect any part of government to deal with this issue at all, and if it is not corrected, we will have anarchy and a civil war on our hands very shortly. Most of us consider government as its “three estates.” We think the Congress as representing us, the executive branch is where we expect our law be executed by, and we expect our judiciary to mete out justice with an even hand.
None of these things are taking place within the law, and we have never been further from “the rule of law” since our founders realized they would get no relief by asking, and rose in rebellion. We don’t normally consider “the fourth estate” of government; “The People”, because we long ago gave our consent to be governed, and rightfully expect our governing to be according to the rule of law, our constitution and our National Creed, the Declaration of Independence.
At times when the government won’t do its job, we have a moral obligation to look at this intransigence, realize we can’t trust those who will not follow orders, and our only moral choice is to withdraw our consent to be governed; openly, unequivocally, just as our forefathers did, and form up our militias to take back our Nation, and take full custody of those criminals who have refused to do their duty.
When a mob acts as so many have done in the past six months in Detroit and many other cities, it is no longer just the right of the owner to “keep and bear arms”, it is by our founding principles, his full citizens duty to do so. It is not the right of neighbors to stand shoulder to shoulder with him under arms; it is “Our Duty” to do so.
We have had our government go to great lengths to vilify Militias as evil, with destructive intents but there is indeed a “domestic enemy” government should be focused on, it is to be found among Blacks, primarily gangs, in the cities, as evidenced by their crimes and statistics. None the less, it will be easy to call this a “hate statement” because so few are ready to tell the truth, we have a criminal president of the nature of Stalin, and he has worked hard to get our Nation to this point.
If that were my store, or if any such thing would happen anywhere close to my home, the owner would get a phone call, then a personal visit from me. I would be offering to make arrangements for establishing a militia, and providing for the full defense of his store, and any others, establishing our own phone links, and “flying squads”, no less than I did as a Marine.
The sole reason our natural right to keep and bear arms was enumerated was the certainty of so many that not enumerating our first and most fundamental rights would ensure there would be arguments over whether there were any “unalienable rights” citizens have at all.
The entire purpose of the second amendment was the certainty people would always be in danger by others willing to kill them to take what is theirs. The founders further extrapolated, stating during the ratification process, “All the terrible instruments of war are the Natural Birth Right of the American citizen”, as stated by Thomas Jefferson, and echoed by Hamilton, directing his remarks toward a government out of hand. George Washington stated arms are second only to the Constitution for our independence, calling them our “people’s liberty teeth”.
The government will not do its duty and no words can suggest otherwise. When we have taken great care to establish government with careful deliberation, giving all the powers it needs to accomplish what we have set as its duty, and it refuses to fulfill its duties, “We, The People” are criminally remiss if we fail to secure our Free State, with our “liberty teeth”, the militia. In doing so, we are equally remiss if after we have secured ourselves, we don’t remove the government which failed, replacing it as per our constitution.
The People can commit treason just as those in government can, and we can do so by remiss. Sovereignty does not merely provide authority, but includes responsibility as well. If we are not willing to be the law, we have no right to claim sovereignty.
