A Government Against the People

Monday, April 21st, 2014

grab 1Slowly, quietly, over decades of regulation by unelected bureaucrats and with the assistance of those elected to pass legislation to advance the cause of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness who have done everything but, lands that once belonged to private individuals and families have been ceded first to the state and then, to the statists.

After decades of backroom deals, bribes, pocket lining and dirty deeds, the land of the western United States now belongs to the United States government.

Just days ago, in a meeting scheduled well before the Battle of Bunkerville, legislators from 9 western states gathered with the goal of kicking the U.S. government off those lands and out of those states.

Bunkerville and the Bundy’s were merely the tipping point of a situation that had already gone well beyond enough is enough.

Ronald Reagan once said that “government is not the solution to the problem…Government IS the problem,” and those words ring as true today, if not more so than they did when first spoken.

According to Idaho Speaker of the House Scott Bedke…forests, wetlands and range lands in his state have fared better and suffered less damage from watersheds and fires than have lands in his state that are under the control of the federal government. There is a good reason for that too. Lands that are managed by the state are lands that are closer to the people who live on or near them than are lands managed by those in Washington DC but there are other reasons too.

Weekend Edition: “Gun Control” – Socialists in Their OWN Words

Saturday, December 29th, 2012

So…When we, as Conservatives, say that liberals…socialists really…Want to disarm We the People…WE’RE crazy?

WE’RE just making stuff up?

WE’RE the extremists and…

WE’RE lying?

Really.

The denials of socialists when confronted with facts would be whimsical were the facts not so dire and despite what socialists will tell you, the implications are more dire than the facts.

First, let’s have a look at what a few historical “gun control” advocates had to say in THEIR day.

“Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA – ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the State.”

Heinrich Himmler

“If the [political] opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.”

Josef Stalin

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed the subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.”
