Good day. We are now seeing something the founders of the United States were very concerned about when they wrote the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. A central government no longer responsive to the people and who see the God given rights as privileges granted by the government instead.
This is the reason they wrote the Second Amendment of the Constitution. It wasn’t for hunting or shooting holes in paper targets, it was written as a warning to those who would suppress the rights of Americans. The Second Amendment is and always was meant to be, the final check on a government out of control. In the opinion of many people, we are almost at that point.
In times past, we used to see people raising the Stars and Bars of the old Confederate States of America. This was meant to show that the people were ready to rebel against the federal government. Today, the Progressive Left has managed to turn the that flag into a sign of racism, which it certainly is not. The Stars and Bars was the original CSA Battle flag and parts of it were made into the national flag of the Confederacy1.
Today, people use the old Gadsden flag to show how they feel. The flag has been around in it’s basic form since the American Revolution. The flag in it’s best known form, shows a coiled rattlesnake shaking it’s tail, (Where the rattles are), in warning. The motto is “Don’t tread on me” and is considered to mean that you are getting to close and should back off.
More and more, this flag is being used to show people’s displeasure with Obama and the Democrats, (as well as the Establishment Republicans), and what they see as the usurpation of their constitutional rights, suppression of their beliefs and rapine2 of their property, wealth and earnings by the government. (Mostly at the federal level, but also at the state and local levels in some cases)
Now a new flag is beginning to make an appearance. It is a variation of the Gadsden flag, but rather then a coiled rattlesnake, it has a rattlesnake in mid-strike. Instead of the motto “Don’t tread on me” it has a new motto. “Times Up”
The meaning of this is clear to anyone who has 2 functioning brain cells. (Which leaves out 99.99999999% of Progressive Liberal Democrats) You’ve gone to far. You have stomped on me and now I’m going to fight back with whatever it takes. This should strike fear into the Progressive Moonbats in Washington. It won’t for one simple reason. They are delusional and truly think they know what’s good for people.
These days, you are now starting to see what is generally referred to as the “Political Middle” thinking that the people might just be forced to resort to force of arms. You have former military personnel writing Senators and telling them they will NOT COMPLY with the latest moonbat diktat they want to ram down Americans throats…For their own good of course. We have university professors who teach constitutional law saying that we should just ignore the constitution because it gets in their way. We have politicians saying that we need to “pass measures that restrict freedom.”
The people have started to respond to these tyrants in a way that that should terrify the Moonbat class. They are voting with their wallets and buying every single gun and round of ammunition they can get their hands on3. As Bob Owens said in a recent blog post:
“This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns they fear may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.”
If this statement doesn’t scare the crap out of you, then you are a brain dead zombie. The political class, with a few exceptions fit that criteria. They are not listening and are doubling down on their plans to impose totalitarian rule in America. Obama and his thugs have decided they want to go beyond what Diane Feinstein has planned for American gun owners.
The Washington Post recently reported that the White House is weighing a broad approach on gun control that would go beyond bans on assault weapons and high-capacity clips that have garnered attention in the past. The Post said the Biden group was considering universal background checks for gun buyers and a national database to track the movement and sale of weapons.
The Post is nothing more then a left wing propaganda machine for Obama and the Democrats. Like almost all of the Obama Steno Pool, (Formally known as the Main Stream Media), they will outright lie to further their agenda. They refuse to see that Americans have been pushed to the breaking point. They won’t understand this fact until bad things start happening. More and more, people are accepting that “Bad things” need to happen in order to stop the Progressive tyranny. It’s no longer “If” a civil war “Might” happen, but more “When” will it start and how bad it will be. (*Hint* It will be very bad)
