ANOTHER BENEDICT ARNOLD?

(Apr. 10, 2013) — John McCain doesn’t understand filibustering gun control??? I am astonished at the statement, and at the same time, not the least little bit surprised by it. He really means what he says; he is oblivious, and totally flabbergasted. HE DOESN’T GET IT!!!!
He took an oath as an officer in the United States Navy to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America, and reaffirmed that oath as a member of Congress. He violates the oath of office he swore before God and the American people every day.
McCain is so hung up on the pomp and circumstance of the “debate society” known as the Senate he can’t see the Constitution. He is the consummate stuffed shirt “Duke of…” that I remember from the “swashbuckler” movies of my childhood and teens years. The government hierarchy we have now, Democrat and Republican, is just like a monarchy of old Europe.
We are not being governed by people who respect, or even have knowledge of, our founding document. We are being ruled by arrogant, pompous windbags who see themselves as set above We the People. They will do what they decide is best for us, regardless of what we want, or what the Constitution says. We are too stupid to understand liberty so they must rule our every move and have us pay them handsomely to do it. Oh, and bow to the “Senator” or “Congressman” titles they carry for life!!! They get treated like royalty by the media and they act like royalty.
The Robin Hood analogy fits with what is happening in America. Prince John is a mirror of our government of today. As a matter of fact, Prince John was the government of England at the time. Really big business, the “too big to fail” branch of business, and government are the Prince John and Sheriff of Nottingham of our day. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and their ilk are part of the “king’s court” of Prince John. They all work together to insure they get their share of the good life in the king’s court. They are well-compensated and live a life of luxury, during and after their terms of office.
The IRS is the tax collector that Robin Hood took money from. DHS is the enforcement arm of Prince John, his army. DHS appears to be ramping up for something; buying full automatic rifles and semi-automatic pistols by the thousands, ammunition in the billions of rounds, and MRAP armored personnel carriers in the thousands. They are teaming up with local law enforcement to run drills in city streets; practicing locking down cities, “for our own protection”. Martial law, anyone??? Why would they be arming an internal military force “equal to or better than” the United States military? They aren’t likely to be rounding up illegal aliens any time in the near or distant future. Who is the internal enemy they seek to overcome with this vast firepower?
We all know that McCain is going to insure that no illegal aliens will be inconvenienced by immigration laws. He wants to wage war all over the world but refuses to secure the borders of our nation. And while spending his time worrying about the plight of people who are here illegally, McCain graciously finds enough time and energy to see to it that those of us who are here legally have no way of defending ourselves against any foe, foreign or domestic. And he just can’t understand how anyone can object!!!! Hey, “Senator,” what does the Constitution say in the 18 enumerated duties of the federal government? Is McCain a traitor or just a senile old fool who needs to go home?
McCain may be a war hero (argument starts right about here) but history tells us that Benedict Arnold was one of the most outstanding officers of the Revolutionary War. Arnold is remembered as a traitor, but before he betrayed a fledgling nation he too was a war hero. McCain and those like him see We the People as mere peasants. The royal attitude of elected politicians and their bureaucrat enforcers is a symptom of our destruction as a nation.
They are all doing this to us and any peasant with the temerity to object will be disarmed, and kept under observation should they survive the disarming. The arrogance of the federal government, and many state and local governments, is appalling. Criminals don’t follow the registration and background check laws we have now, so passing more laws won’t solve that problem. Chicago was just announced as the worst city in the nation for the prosecution of firearms law violations. They don’t prosecute the laws they have available today so let’s just have them pass some more they won’t enforce!!!!
Republicans, including “Senator” McCain, are on the verge of further restricting the rights of the law abiding citizen to own firearms, something that will do absolutely nothing to make We the People any safer. It could, however, make it much easier for enemies, both foreign and domestic (DHS, maybe??), to impose their will on We the People if they should have the inkling.
McCain and those like him in government are a disease that is killing a nation and its people. They have become so entrenched in their opulence they seem to see themselves as royalty. As the “royals” increase their own opulence and hunger for power the liberty of the peasants disappears. As personal freedoms go down the drain so does the nation.
Government produces nothing and is designed to merely be an office of We the People, not a ruling junta. McCain’s confusion about the duties of the federal government and the rights of the citizens is a danger to all of us. He either doesn’t know what the Constitution says or doesn’t care. Either way he has no business being in an elected office. Hmmm, that can be said for nearly every member of Congress and virtually all of their bureaucrat minions!!!
People who have experienced gun control beg us to not go there but we are heading there anyway, or at least the government and many citizens are going there. I’m not going there, I WILL NOT COMPLY!!!
We are on a course that destroyed the liberties, and lives, of millions of people in many countries throughout the 20th Century. If we don’t reverse course and turn our nation back to the Constitution we will soon follow the path that Mr. Martinez describes in this video. Our founders must be spinning in their graves over what is happening to the nation they sacrificed so much to establish.
I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
