The Founding Fathers of America learned first hand about living under a tyrant, with no arms to protect themselves, their families, and their property. Thus, they wrote an Amendment to the Constitution before ratifying it that guaranteed EVERY American the “right to bear arms.” They needed this guarantee in case the “national government” in the District of Columbia tried to step outside its limited powers delegated to it by the Constitution. The individual nation-states had created the “national government,” so they had the right to delegate limited powers to it. It was to act upon the limited powers delegated to it and NO MORE!!!
Former assistant to J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI, W. Cleon Skousen, wrote a book entitled The Naked Communist. In the book, he pointed out 45-points that were discovered by the FBI that the Communist wanted to achieve in order to overthrow America. One of those 45-points was to REQUIRE gun registration under some pretense, with the long-range objective of CONFISCATING them and leaving the citizens helpless.
There has been an ongoing attempt by LIBERALS [Socialists] in the Federal Congress for years to use every incident that was gun related as an excuse to register all firearms. There is a bill before Congress now that would require Federal registration of all firearms. But that’s not all!
The illegitimate President, Barack Obama, has revealed his list of firearms that he wants registered or banned. Remember, the first step in establishing a dictatorship is to disarm the citizens.
His Democratically leaked list of guns totals 76!!!
Obama’s pick for Attorney General, Eric Holder, wrote a brief in the Heller case supporting the position that YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO HAVE A WORKING FIREARM IN YOUR OWN HOME.
Why is this important? Could America become a tyrannical government? Every law that is being passed in Washington, D.C. is Unconstitutional!!! This brings in two more factors!
- Another point the Communists wanted to achieve was to CAPTURE one or BOTH political parties to facilitate their program of Socialization. They also wanted to consolidate ALL POWER in Washington, D.C. and by-pass the States. Has this happened? We see the Democratic Party, with a Democrat as President, passing Unconstitutional Socialistic programs as rapidly as possible. In the Communist program to overthrow a nation, they teach candidates to “say what the people want to hear;” then, when you are elected, destroy the capitalistic system of government as fast as possible.
- The Tenth Amendment is a guarantee that every State would have a Republican form of government. The Tenth Amendment was exactly what the War Between the States was all about.
The following comes directly from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, located in the capitol, Austin, Texas.
An Ordinance: To dissolve the union between the State of Texas and the other States, united under the compact styled “The Constitution of the United States of America.” Adopted in Convention, at Austin City, the first day of February, A.D. 1861.
Whereas, the Federal Government has failed to accomplish the purposes of the compact [agreement] of union between these States, in giving protection either to the persons of our people upon an exposed frontier, or to the property of our citizens; and, whereas, the action of the Northern States of the Union is violative of the compact between the States and the guarantees of the Constitution; and whereas the recent developments in Federal affairs, make it evident that the power of the Federal Government is sought to be MADE A WEAPON with which to strike down the interests and prosperity of the people of Texas …Therefore, That all the powers, which by said compact were delegated by Texas to the Federal Government, ARE REVOKED AND RESUMED [taken back]; That Texas is of right absolved from all restraints and obligations incurred by said compact, and is a separate Sovereign State, and that her citizens and people are absolved from all allegiance to the United States, or the Government thereof.”
The reason this section was quoted from the Texas Archives is that the same oppressions are occurring right now. The border with Mexico is not defended, and the Federal Government is imposing Socialism instead of our guaranteed Republican form of government. What will we do? Do we dare bring in the possibility that God may have a Plan for Texas? After all, God does rule in the affairs of men for His purpose!!!
