Yesterday I sent off the following in a letter to each of my congress critters:
“No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” Thomas Jefferson
I have no expectation of Jeffersonian wisdom from my elected officials. I do however, fully expect you to uphold your oath of office; to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Irrespective of your personal thoughts on the Second Amendment you have sworn a oath to protect it.
Therefore I expect you to call on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama not to sign the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty. Anything less will be a violation of your oath and a disservice to your country and your constituents.
So the legal system justifies abusing or ignoring the constitution not because it has been removed, but because for it to have force the people must demand it. I just didn’t realize that the house and Senate was comprised of 50% of the people. But have you heard? There is still a glimmer of hope.
The one last chance we have to put a statesman in the White House to oversee the collapse, as opposed to a chicken hawk neo con who wants his power at any cost. But the GOP apparently doesn’t want to win:
Obama 52 Romney 44
Obama 41 Paul 56
