Give Me Liberty Or...

The above picture depicts "The Shot Heard Round the World" at the Battle of Lexington and Concord.  The British Army marched to seize the arms of Americans from the armories in those towns and were met by the American Militia:  Citizens who took up arms and stood together.  That the militia was defeated was immaterial for they delayed the British long enough for the arms in the armories to be evacuated and thus saved from seizure.  And the shots that were fired on Lexington Green were the first shots of the Revolution.  Americans successfully defeated this attempt to seize their arms but now we face the question:  Will we allow our government to surrender our right to keep and bear arms to a world body?

Chuck Norris is never afraid of stating his opinion.  (Actually, my oldest son is fond of posting things on his Facebook profile like, "Chuck Norris tugs on Superman's cape just for fun.")  Norris weighs in strongly on this issue and in his eyes the Obama Regime will willingly surrender American rights as it furthers their goal of disarming America.  In doing so he may have uncovered Obama's out if and when it happens for he will baldly say, "It is not my doing that you must surrender your personal weapons but the U.N. Treaty, which is for the betterment of the whole world, requires it and as the United States signed it we must comply."

When it comes to the issue of the 2nd Amendment, Norris is correct in questioning Obama's stance on the Bill of Rights.  We know that he said pooh-poohed the idea that he would ever support a government gun-grab, but he also said that he absolutely would never raise taxes on the middle class.  When you look at it that way, there is ample cause for reasonable men and women to be concerned.  We must ensure that we replace the liberal-progressive-socialist Democrats and RINOs in Congress this fall with Conservative candidates who will represent the will of the people if we are to protect our remaining freedoms and begin to reclaim those that have been stolen by the Regime thus far. Remember, he may get to sign the treaty but if he can't get the Senate to consent, then it won't be worth the paper on which it is printed.

I leave you with a quote from a Scottish patriot, Andrew Fletcher, who in 1698 stated, "Arms are the only true badge of liberty.  The possession of arms is the distinction of a free man from a slave."
