The Subtle Path to Tyranny...




    The pendulum swings both ways. Currently we have cities across the U.S. that are bastions of lawless activity. I have to stop and think why many of our nation’s bustling metropolises are settling for chaos instead of order. The reason, control. They will force citizens to deal with the lawlessness and chaos, because our politicians don’t have to deal with it. They don’t want you to become desensitized to the chaos, they want it to get worse until you beg them to take control. The left will not stop until they have complete control of every aspect of your life.

    Let’s begin with freedom of speech. If we continue down the path that one of our “free” neighbors from across the pond has done, we will soon be arrested for “hate speech” online. The United Kingdom passed the Public Order Act in 1986, the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act in 1994, the Racial and Religious Hatred Act in 2006, and there were other articles attached later that would bolster their position, but when reduced to its basic point, “don’t be mean or say anything mean or you’ll go to jail.” I am a firm believer in free speech, but I also know that people can say some truly awful things. Let them say what they want, how else can they be exposed as the morons that they are? Words have meaning, and when people are careful with their word choice, understand that the meaning that they are conveying is deliberate and significant. Jefferson didn’t choose the terms used in the Declaration of Independence because he thought they sounded good; I mean, they sound great, but the meaning and placement of each word brought depth and legitimacy to our young nation. Why do officials want to limit what you can and can’t say? Because it is the first and most subtle way to control you.

    Second, they will control your religion. “They can’t do that.” Yes, they can and already have. During the pandemic, churches were closed but strip clubs stayed open. They say freedom of religion, but they don’t mean it. They want to control who you worship, how you worship, and where you worship. The government will sacrifice all religious beliefs on the altar of Pride in order to affirm the LGBTQAI+@#!$ community. The Catholic church, Methodist church, and Church of England are experiencing the effects of a more “inclusive” doctrine. Religion at its core is exclusive, not inclusive because one must accept the doctrine of that religion. Currently, the Pride religion is forcing their ideology on all regions to accept, without exception. Through this course of action, there will be no distinguishing differences between religions, and we all can worship the same thing! Won’t that be great! If you believe me to be an alarmist, just give it time, they will find another excuse to exclude religion from the conversation and close the doors of your neighborhood church. It’s time to wake up and stop being naรฏve.

    Next, they do want to take your guns. Make no mistake, everything that the totalitarian and fascist left does is to subversively control the public. With an unarmed populous, they can and will do whatever they want (you know, for the greater good). With you unarmed, you can be beaten or robbed and if you are, know that you are helping that poor thief in need. “Aaron, what about all of the shootings that happen in Chicago each month, they didn’t take their guns!” You are correct, the only guns that get confiscated are the law-abiding citizens, who then become the first victims of a totalitarian regime. If they confiscate guns, they will keep a list, and they will return to arrest someone in that household just to make sure that you didn’t withhold any firearms. Then, those arrested will have a mysterious illness or accident to keep others in line. The final nail in our collective coffin would be to weaponize our own justice system against the citizens.

    We are seeing more flagrant evidence of overreach by a corrupt totalitarian justice department (and I will use the word “justice” with a smirk) that goes after political opponents and sentences with impunity. Silencing truth is easy when you kill the right amount of people or suppress the truth by attempting to kill one person (Derek Chauvin). It’s very convenient that there was an attempt on Derek Chauvin in prison by a former FBI informant, that stabbed Chauvin for the “Black Lives Matter” movement, AFTER the official (Floyd) autopsy was released. Why would they suppress evidence that would ultimately exonerate him? The Judicial system wouldn’t control the narrative to a point so they could put an innocent man in prison only to sacrifice him in prison to ultimately suppress the truth and appease the masses? Would they? I know this seems like a stretch to go from the freedoms that we enjoy now, to a country slowly wrought with totalitarianism, but pro-life activists, ministers, and a former POTUS have been arrested and charged under a paper-thin veil of due process. This is only emboldening the corrupt left and we have not seen their full potential of corruption, they will stop at nothing to get their way, even if they have to sacrifice our Republic to get it. Let’s play the “what if” game.

    What if we have major cities, or even states, that deteriorate into several unmanageable forms of lawlessness and chaos? What if major homeless encampments filled with drug addiction, rape, and violence aren’t addressed, arrested, prosecuted? What if large areas of major cities rack up more shooting deaths than our active military in war zones? What if stores no longer stock goods for fear of large groups of people coming in taking what they want, whenever they want, without consequence or accountability? What do you think the citizens can do when their right to speak out or defend themselves is taken away? There is only one thing the citizens can do then, turn to their government. That’s right. When our backs are against the wall and can no longer stomach the chaos, we will be begging the government to step in and take control. We will gladly give them then authority to do whatever it takes to restore order. Then once order is restored, their argument will be that we need to keep these new rules in place to maintain order. Too far-fetched?

    TRP has pointed towards Tim Tzouliadis, who wrote masterfully in his book The Forsaken, touching on the false superiority of a paper mรขchรฉ society that communist Russia constructed to deceive the world. Look at California and see how far off I am. When they need to, they’ll clear out the homeless and clean up the city, much like a Potemkin village in Russia. Controlling what their community, nation, and the world can see to create the illusion of ushering in their personal conception of Utopia. That conception, on the surface, is a body of beauty and efficiency, but once someone scratches the surface appearance, a rotting corpse of corruption and totalitarian control exists and also contaminates everything immediately around it. I’m talking to you San Francisco, and when the dictator that Governor Newsome loves, Xi Jinping arrives, they roll out the red carpet and hide the homeless. (Jinping was probably here to inspect China’s many properties in California.) California, are you not proud of your homeless encampments, rampant drug use, and theft? Either California has a homeless problem, or they are incredibly good at constructing tent cities. I could go off on California for days, and have, but the reality we all face is that we are drifting towards totalitarianism, and if we aren’t aware, we’ll be the ones asking for vicious dictators as the best solution, and the American citizens deserve more than a temporary solution to the problems that our leaders helped create.

Stay Free My Friends.

Change Your Perspective...



    Perspective is amazing. Based on one’s perspective or worldview, this will determine how information is viewed, accepted, rejected, or ignored. There are a number of people in the U.S. right now that are struggling, even suffering. How do we know that we are struggling as a nation currently? Maybe things are going great and we as citizens are being hyper-critical, maybe Biden is a great president. How do we know he’s not? More on that in a moment.

    Have you ever seen a satellite photo of the Korean peninsula at night? If you haven’t, it’s truly amazing. South Korea glows, a nation bathed in light and potential. There, on the northern half of the peninsula, North Korea is in total darkness. Of course, they have electricity (kind of) and technology, but regardless of what minor comforts they have, the overwhelming sentiment is soul crushing hopelessness. What is there to hope for death? Every day is exactly like the last one, a darkness that encroaches on the spirit of its people.

    “Why don’t they have hope Aaron, it sounds ridiculous, everyone has hope, no matter how small.” Sure, but again, in my humble opinion, it’s a matter of perspective. In a nation that’s starving, they will eat bugs for protein and risk prison time to steal an extra cup of rice. There are no government benefits for the citizens because the government isn’t there to improve the lives of the citizens. The citizens are there to serve the government, period. Family members will sell their children into slavery to other countries because they know that a life of subjugation to a Chinese farmer is a much more rewarding existence than staying in North Korea. There is nothing positive remaining in North Korea, and the only potential in North Korea defects to actually achieve their potential. So, in North Korea, the measurement for positivity, care, success, and hope are gauged by your best negative experience. They have lived in such abject poverty and abuse that when people defect, they have no concept of how other countries live. North Korea controls communication and news so the citizens are closed off from the rest of the world. Which brings me back to our situation.

    In 2017, the uninformed (or purposefully misinformed) American public wanted President Trump to fail because they didn’t like him. I don’t like Biden, not even a little, I pity him to be honest. I believe that he epitomizes everything that’s wrong with American politics. A lifetime in “service” to this nation with nothing to show for it. I pray he succeeds because I live here. If he fails, we all suffer.

    Joe Biden may have been the biggest eye opener for American voters before the 2024 election. It really doesn’t matter what they think of President Trump, they can measure tangible results. How much did I spend at the grocery store 4 years ago compared to this year? Gas? Mortgage? Rent? Taxes? The truth is, that no matter how bad things get, Americans are still blessed. We have an abundance of opportunities here, and all we need to do is recognize it. Our current predicament now leads voters to realize what good (if any) remains, but more importantly how much better life was under different leadership.

    Voters recognize where we should be and also recognize the disappointing reality of where we actually are. I’ve written about poor leadership in the past, but how do we recognize that we’re in a cycle of poor leadership? Because we’ve had good leadership before. The reality that we find ourselves in as U.S. citizens is a harsh “kick in the head” that helps us realign our goals and perspective to a standard where we know we should be. Occasionally, we need to experience poverty, difficulty, or yes, even suffering to truly understand what plenty, duty, contentment, and success really is. The main reason why we can pursue these endeavors to benefit our lives is hope. We have seen what American citizens can accomplish when they understand the responsibility that is required when gifted both opportunity and potential. It brings a return to that elevated standard in which we should continually measure ourselves. Turning away from that standard to make everyone “feel good” is the worst tragedy that I can imagine. We should maintain a laser focus on the highest standards until we can surpass even that. People don’t risk their lives to come here searching for the best spot to be homeless and penniless, but instead they come here to be better, do better, and share the best of themselves in the process. Unfortunately, illegal immigration doesn’t bring the best and brightest that other people can offer from around the world, but an opportunity of convenience, but that’s a different topic for a different day.

    Our hope’s foundation should remain grounded in faith in God, faith in our family, and faith in our country. When I write country, I do not mean our physical borders, but I am referring to the citizens that are all around us. I haven’t lost hope that our government can return to a standard that we once had, and I don’t have much faith in the leadership of our nation without a significant change taking place. My lack of faith in our current leadership doesn’t leave me void of hope, it’s just that there is insufficient evidence to restore my faith otherwise. My faith in our nation isn’t a blind faith either, but faith in what the ideal should be because there is evidence that we’ve been there. Our founding fathers based it on Jefferson’s ideal, which is why we are still a nation today. I have heard the statement that “comparison is the thief of joy,” and I agree, when you are comparing yourself to someone else. When we compare ourselves to where we were, where we are, and where we should be, this is a valuable comparison indeed.

    All in all, I should be thankful for the overall ineptitude of the Biden regime. Without them, the American public would forget how good we truly had it under President Trump. Significantly, as we turn into a new year, we remember the hopeful potential of what our government could be, as we desperately cling to the opportunity we have in next year’s presidential election.

Stay Hopeful My Friends

Back to Basics...

 

    Too often we are caught trying to reinvent the wheel instead of making improvements to the systems and devices that we already have. Many things that we have incorporated into our day-to-day life to simplify things, have in fact complicated it in many ways. The cell phone is a great example. Have you ever left your phone in your car or at home? It feels like you left an appendage behind but why do we feel that way? It has simplified our lives in such a way that we become anxious if it is out of our immediate possession. Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be a lengthy diatribe on the cell phone but instead a moment to pose a couple of suggestions to election reform.

    Our elections have become a three-ring circus without a ring master. I dread the beginning of the year because this is when the political ads really ramp up. I hate political ads so much that I stop watching television and catch up on some light reading by cracking open one of the stacks of books currently littering my desk. Political ads on tv should come with a post-disclaimer like the pharmaceutical companies post, “Watching this ad may cause discomfort, headaches, IBS, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, explosive diarrhea, confusion. Dementia is not contagious. If symptoms persist get a frontal lobotomy and vote for a local democrat.” I’m not picking on democrats completely, there are some republicans that can trigger a gag reflex with a political ad just as easily as a democrat can. I’m not going to continue going down this rabbit hole, but you understand what I’m talking about.

    The point that I’d like the American people to consider is election reform. Many people have been clamoring for election reform over the years but there is an opportunity in the future to eliminate some reckless spending by our government officials and by those who aspire to do the same. I know what you’re thinking, “Aaron, this is a complicated system, it’s impossible to tackle election reform.” No, not impossible, and it needs to be done. First, the obvious thing to tackle is the television ads. No more. Campaign contributions and funding by the parties directly relate to television time in the district that is at risk. It’s crazy to think about the homeless in major cities when political parties dump millions of dollars on air in the hope of getting elected. Millions of dollars. It’s not to serve the people, for the majority of politicians it’s to get rich. When I heard Mike Johnson was living paycheck to paycheck, I couldn’t believe that there were honest politicians left out there. Without spending money on television ads that can be misleading, campaign funds can be reallocated to issues that need to be addressed; roads, parks, gun safety, mental health, poverty, homelessness, drug addiction, and the list goes on. But how are voters to know what that candidate stands for without tv ads? Did we ever get to see what they stood for, or did we see “how the other candidate is worse than me.”

    I can see a simple way around this. Each candidate running is allowed a website that looks exactly like their opponents. This website is going to contain a list of issues ranging from abortion to voter ID and show where each candidate stands on those issues as well as their opponent. This website stays up until the completion of the campaign. The websites are going to be boring but have information pertinent for the voters. I know what you’re thinking, “How am I going to get to really know the candidates?” One word, DEBATE. There will be a series of debates for the American people to see, that will showcase the candidates at their best or their worst. Debate is an opportunity to see the candidates under pressure and thinking on their feet. Yes, some unscrupulous moderators can leak the questions to the candidates ahead of time, like Donna Brazile did for Hillary Clinton, but with different venues and moderators the voters can see if things are not on a level playing field. Which will reflect poorly on the moderator more than the candidates. No candidate should be excluded from debate because this would have shown how President Biden can think on his feet (with the aid of a teleprompter).

    Lastly, I believe that the debate is an opportunity for the candidates to show whether they can work well with others. A question for a moderator to consider for one of the candidates would be, “what is a current issue that you feel like you can rally your party to you to collectively solve for the American people?” This gets candidates away from what “I’m” going to do to what “we’re” going to do. Elections have grown into this monster that is so big that we don’t trust them, or the candidates that represent us. The result is that we have candidates that are so out of touch with the American people, and they are supposed to represent us, and we resent them. The only way to fortify the constitutional republic that our forefathers built is to begin with a solitary brick and get back to basics.

Stay informed my Friends.

How Long Have You Been There!?





    It is time to vote for term limits. No lead in, no witty repartee, just in your face reality. Regardless of your party affiliation or political leanings, a person’s extended time in office leads to a disproportionate accumulation of power. There seems to be only one way to remove someone from power, other than a vote, and that’s death.

    Look at Diane Feinstein, she spent an overwhelming majority of her life in elected office, and she is not in the minority. There are many other politicians that share this statistic and had to be removed from office after they have been rendered unrecognizable due to their age and physical condition. Not simply a mere “shell” of their former self, but something more sinister. A ghoulish representative of forgotten constituents, only to be possessed and controlled by unscrupulous handlers, hell bent on having their own taste of power. Instead of doing what is best for an obviously feeble and confused geriatric, these sadists continued to abuse Feinstein because they wanted to maintain their position. I’m sure Feinstein’s final days were spent in a perpetual state of bewilderment, waiting for someone to wheel her to her next stop where she could finally get the blanket and bowl of soup she was promised. Our politicians look like they are in a perpetual state of bewilderment, like John Fetterman waiting for his favorite slinky to reach the bottom of an escalator, or Mitch McConnell looking like he is lip syncing Johnny Cash and doing it poorly. It does not take long for elected officials to grab and try to maintain all of the power they can grab.

    This is the United States aristocracy. One can only ascend to the throne of the presidency after someone has held a lesser position of power elsewhere. Did you know that Bernie Sanders has never had a job in the private sector. Never. Not one. How can this be? Because he recognizes the power of the office and the power of false promises to the working class. This is how he and so many others have amassed untold wealth under the masquerade as a public servant. The majority of the politicians are there to serve themselves and through each veiled legislative action, they aim to increase their own power while diminishing the rights of the citizens they are meant to serve. The only way to prevent this abuse of power is to ensure that they are private citizens for far longer than they are in their ivory towers of elected aristocracy.

    The longer politicians are in power, the easier it becomes for them to compromise our rights to fill their pockets and serve their own interests. There is a saying, “confidence is directly related to competence”, and that is why I have little to no confidence in our current government. I pray that someday soon, someone will propose term limits and it will pass. Until then, we can watch senators that could pass as stunt doubles for the Crypt Keeper make rash and uneducated decisions that effect the American public so they can appease special interest groups and build another house in Vermont or the Hamptons or at Lake Tahoe. Enough is enough, American citizens deserve better, and it’s time that we started vocalizing that fact. More importantly it’s time we started showing them at the ballot box.

Stay cognitive my friends.

Where do we go?

    

    I don’t typically like doubling up on a topic, but it is an awfully big topic, and it does affect us here in the states. The conflict between Israel and Hamas does result in a humanitarian crisis in Gaza. I want to touch on a few things that the average American may not realize and hopefully by the end, provide a little clarity to a confusing situation.

    First, Israel has not been in Gaza since 2005. Israel has walls to protect its own people, but the people of Gaza have a problem called Hamas. Hamas controls the elections at gunpoint, so, surprise, someone from Hamas always wins. Hamas is a terrorist organization, and the word Hamas in Hebrew means violence and can be traced back to Genesis in the Old Testament. No, I am not going to turn this into a piece on biblical history but would like to point out the appropriateness of their name and its origin. Hamas has crippled its own people in many ways. Any money that goes into the area is not spent on programs to improve the area, but on weapons and tunnels that do not help their people. When Israel pulled out of Gaza, they attempted to give Egypt control of the land and Egypt didn’t want it. That should tell you a lot about the region. Even now you hear news organizations condemn Israel for bombing the one road out of Gaza to the south, but in my opinion, Israel did this as a favor to Egypt. Egypt made it very clear to the international community that they would accept ZERO refugees from Gaza. Zero. They want nothing to do with them. Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and other nations have also made it clear.

    Where do Muslim refugees go when they are displaced from their country or land? Historically, the answer has overwhelmingly been Christian nations of the west. Why is that? Is it because the Christian nations are responsible for displacing them in the first place? Maybe, but I believe they go to Christian nations because they are free and tolerant. Then when they establish themselves in a Christian nation, they begin to spread their own intolerance. Some of the other Muslim nations they would be fleeing to are more repressive and restrictive than from where they originally fled. Which brings me to an underlying issue of this attack.

    Why would Hamas go into Israel and commit these awful atrocities, with full knowledge that Israel would respond with the full might of its military towards the people responsible? I believe that Hamas was backed by Iran financially and with weaponry to carry out this attack. Like the cowards that they are, when confronted about their involvement, they denied any involvement and let Hamas bear the brunt of the attack. Iran is complicit, but why did they fund the attack? Money. Free trade between Israel and India was beginning and the trade routes were through the nations in the Middle East that Israel had peace agreements with. All of these nations stood to profit as well as acquire additional goods and services. How did Iran accomplish this? It began long before Biden gave this terrorist nation $6 billion, and I would argue that they began funneling money to terrorist organizations around Israel when Biden lifted the oil embargo to Iran, and they began selling millions of barrels of oil to China. With that amount of profit, they could fund and arm any terrorist group they want, anywhere they want. Which brings me to my final point.

    Israel needs to be defended, but we must also not overlook our own situation. Time for this administration to put on its big boy pants, forget about ice cream for a few minutes and fix some issues before we have an issue play out here much like what happened in Israel. We have made no secret of our unwavering support for Isarel, which also makes us a target. There have been several protests here in the United States and across the world that have shown their support for terror and Hamas. My question then becomes, with our porous Southern border, how long before Hamas extremists infiltrate these organizations and radicalize large numbers within the United States. Make no mistake, these extremists aren’t interested in having an area to themselves where they can worship freely, but have one goal, to eradicate our entire way of life. With thousands of people crossing our border daily, it is only a matter of time before something like this happens in our own backyard. It is time to wake up and start fixing some glaring issues. I for one do not want to wait until we react to a slaughter of innocents at home, it saddens me to say, but can we for once learn from someone else’s mistakes.

Stay strong my friends.

The Cheney test...

Don't Tread on me!

   

    Since our country’s inception, our founding fathers have established certain unalienable rights. What is an unalienable right? How I would define an unalienable right would be rights that cannot be bought or sold, transferred, or traded, but most importantly surrendered. The 2nd Amendment itself is not an unalienable right. Hold on, before you grab torches and pitchforks, read what I have to say. The 2nd Amendment is not an unalienable right, but it affords us the opportunity to defend our life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. History proves that a disarmed populous is not only a controlled populous, but also a vulnerable one. This truth became all too real for Israeli citizens last week.

    As Hamas was wreaking havoc outside the walls of Gaza, Israeli citizens huddled inside their homes and safe rooms, only to be burned out of their home or blown up inside of it. Nothing and no one to protect them. Some Israeli citizens only comfort before armed Hamas gunman shot unarmed citizen after unarmed citizen was that their children were hidden well enough to survive. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The only good thing about the senseless deaths of the citizens is that they weren’t alive to witness the brutality that happened next. I have seen videos and images of women being dragged by their hair from the backs and trunks of cars. Signs that they have been beaten and sexually assaulted. The brutality of the rape still evident on their blood-soaked clothing that sticks to their leg as they are ruthlessly shoved into the back of another vehicle to be raped again by Hamas militants waiting outside the vehicle, while other Hamas terrorists shout “allahu akbar”, which means “God is most Great”. Maybe those citizens don’t want to be armed, but I think they will.

    There are two massive failures here by the Israeli government. First, they failed to imagine how low their enemy would go to strike fear in the hearts of the Israeli citizens. Second, because they failed to imagine the depths of the barbarism that Hamas would inflict on civilians, they didn’t allow the Israeli citizens in harm’s way an opportunity to defend themselves. Yes, these two points are directly related.

    Israeli citizens are not afforded the right to carry or bear arms. Generally, you have to prove that you have a need in your daily life to be given permission to own a gun for protection. Many unarmed families outside of Gaza were beaten, abducted, or shot by Hamas in their homes, in the street, in their car, at the market. Some of the people kidnapped or killed were vocal supporters of Palestine. Did Hamas interview the 67-year-old mother from the United States if she supported Palestine before they shot her Israeli husband in front of her, then tied her up and repeatedly raped her before stabbing her because they didn’t want to waste their bullets. She bled out before help could arrive. There are so many advocates for gun control until they themselves are subjected to traumatic events that change their minds. Unfortunately, too many didn’t survive long enough to change their minds. At this point, I would think that anyone living outside of Gaza can petition the Israeli government for permission to protect their home and family with a firearm. If the government denies this right, they can show them exactly what Hamas is capable of.

    This leads to the biggest problem of the Israeli government, which is that they underestimated their enemy. That, my friends, is inexcusable. The reason that Israel exists is that they couldn’t imagine that anyone was capable of the atrocities perpetrated by Nazi Germany. Let’s be clear though, the reason that these atrocities were made into a reality was because of an unarmed citizenry. China, Russia, Cambodia, Cuba, Vietnam, Korea, Great Brittain, and the list goes on. In each and every case the commonwealth underestimated the lengths that a totalitarian or authoritarian regime would go to gain or retain power. Apparently, the Israeli government just could not imagine that Hamas would coordinate a ground offensive with the sole purpose to kill as many citizens they could, while simultaneously kidnapping as many they could to demoralize the Israeli people

    I spoke to an Israeli citizen, and they are angry. Not like anything I’ve seen before. They are angry at Hamas, but also angry at their defense ministers because they didn’t see it coming and defend them. Who would want to imagine a group of over 1500 terrorists infiltrating communities to kill and destroy? Who would want to imagine that Hamas is capable of repeatedly raping women and children as young as 5 and 6, then tossing their lifeless bodies from moving vehicles because they no longer serve a purpose. I don’t care if they want to imagine it, IT’S THEIR JOB TO! Since they cannot fathom the depth of human depravity and the atrocities that one group of people can subject another to, the Israeli government has 1200 citizens dead, more injured, some abducted, and others unaccounted for. I’ve heard a comedian joke about guns in their state, and they learned about the states surrounding them in case those other states ever attacked. We take that reality for granted, and that is exactly the position Israel is in, yet the Israeli government doesn’t trust it’s citizens with firearms. I know about 1200 people that wished Israel did trust them enough to defend themselves.

    Setting aside our military and government for a moment and we are just going to discuss a possible attack on its citizens. Let’s not be naรฏve enough to believe that Hamas and Hezbollah are not in the United States. They pop up at Palestinian rallies all over the United States and they are terrorist organizations. They hate everything about Israel, the United States, and our way of life. They are forcing their ideals on Israelis and other Palestinians alike. The reason why they will plan an attack in a place like Israel and not a place like Georgia, is the reaction of its citizens would be very different. If they attacked near me in Georgia, I may put my wife and kids in the basement, armed, with a way to escape. While myself, and a few of my neighbors will gear up with means to repel any invader. They may get me, but I’m going out in a hail of gunfire with the ringing of shell casing hitting the pavement and the overwhelming smell of gunpowder in the air.

    I pray that the Israeli government and its citizens learn a valuable lesson from this, and that is that an unarmed citizen can still die at the hands of an invader that is. Our 2nd Amendment is not to protect our right to hunt, but to protect our unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Continue to pray for the people over there and may a version of our 2nd Amendment find it’s way to the Israeli people.

Stay free and stay armed my friends.
