Let It Begin Here
50% rule
[link to www.bob-owens.com]

Easing into my 40s, I’m finally starting to understand the urgency of time, and the appeal of leaving a lasting legacy. What will I leave behind to my daughters, and my nieces and nephews? What can I do for my grandchildren before they’re even born, so that they have an opportunity for a life as blessed as mine has been? What is worth building, protecting, and passing on?

I, for one, cannot stand the thought of bowing my head for decades more, only to look back from the twilight of my life at my gathered children and grandchildren, knowing that I failed to act to protect their most precious liberty.

Then it struck me; do I love my children any less now, that I would not sacrifice all that I am for them at this moment, if that is what liberty demands?

Politicians in Illinois, New York, and Washington, DC are incapable of grasping the true meaning of that word, sacrifice.

To them, “sacrifice” is what someone else must give up in order for them to have their way. At best, “sacrifice” to them is having to delay their desires, of having to steal away what they would take from us in partial-measures, buried in massive bills that we have to pass to find out whats in them.

Word has come down in recent days that the President of the United States may attempt to gut the Second Amendment via an executive order, reclassifying popular self-loading firearms as Title II weapons the same as hand grenades, rocket launchers, and crew-served machine guns. In doing so, he would force you to register your firearms with the Federal government, pay a draconian tax for merely keeping what you already own, and shred your right to privacy, allowing the federal government into your home unannounced to “check up” on or confiscate your guns at any moment they see fit.

There is no desire for bloodshed in my heart, but if they want a war, let it begin here.

Re: Let It Begin Here
We have strayed from our fundamental beliefs, truths and way of life

Perverted by the fools that are supposed to represent us, sucking away our liberites, trading them for THEIR safety.

Those calling for safety and the abolishment of certain guns and the seizing of said.

Would like more power, control and money to preserve their way of life, abandoning the rest to feed to them to the wolves.

In a perfect world we could all get along freely expressing our wishes, desires, goals and controlled by our own sense of personal responsibility.

What happened?

Where did we go wrong?

Why have we allowed the country we live in to go to shit?

Re: Let It Begin Here
I posted this earlier, will repost it for you

I've been thinking a lot lately about a friend of mine from NYC, a very successful surgeon who admittedly had a privileged upbringing

..however in the years following 9/11 he began to become more outspoken about the things he thought were wrong, imploring others to do likewise

I remember he quoted from the Book of Esther, which I thought was interesting, as he was never the sort ot wear his philosophies or definitely not the Bible on his sleeve, and neither am I, but I think this quote sums up a universal human sentiment

here it is

Esther 4:14
New International Version (NIV)

14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for [your people] will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish.

And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”

I would like to state I DO NOT advocate violence of any kind, wether it be against state or man. But there comes a point when you have had enough of the laws, rules, regulations and politicians bearing down on honest, true blue Americans. We work for ourselves, our families and our communities hoping that good will prevail. What we have seen though goes against rational, moral and ethical beliefs. If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything. Don't matter where you go there you are.
