Government Tyranny

13 Oct

Our Founding Fathers hated and were fearful of big government. They went to war, fought and died to escape Government Tyranny. They designed our Government and wrote our Constitution so we could avoid a big Tyrannical Government. They gave us the means to vote ourselves out of a problem but they also gave us the Second Amendment as a last resort to solving this problem. Let’s pray we don’t ever have to use this solution. Early voting starts in Tennessee next week and I will be there on the first day. Go out and vote!

    So, in other words if your candidate loses it’s ok to use guns to override the results of the election? What if America wants bigger government and votes for it?

      No, No! I’m not talking about any ONE official, the whole government is leading us closer and closer to socialism every day. Our rights and freedoms are being eroded little by little. One day we will awake and realize the Gov is out of control, and those of us working will see the results of our labors taken more and more until there is nothing left. This country is so far away from what the Founding Fathers envisioned for us I don’t think we can ever get back. That is one of the problems with what the Tea Party says. The Gov does so many things that are unconstitutional that if we stopped it all at once the country would collapse. It would take us decades to right this ship without sinking ourselves altogether.

    What if America wants bigger government and votes for it?

    This is the problem. Too many people today believe anything is Constitutional if a majority vote for it. Wrong. Most of big government is in direct conflict with the Constitution and no matter how many voters want it it is still illegal. The Constitution was a collection of hard set rules meant to protect the individual from the mob. Hence Benjamin Franklins’ quote that Democracy was simply 3 wolves and 2 sheep voting on what’s for dinner. Or something like that.

    The point is that if every voter in America voted to outlaw everyone named Tim Weaver but one (obviously) it wouldn’t matter as that vote was not Constitutional. I bit basic but the same idea applies across all the articles and sections. This lie of a living document is another issue of the mob voting.

    To make a change in the Constitution requires a Convention of the States and a two thirds majority so individuals would not be directly voting for changes.

    As long as we held fast to a Constitutional Republic we did fine, Once we became a full fledged mob rule Democracy the clock started ticking for another of Ben Franklin’s famous quotes that mentioned people voting themselves money.

    I may be the only one standing out there but it is time to defend the Constitution as it was written and intended and stop mob rule.

      Thank you PP. Very well stated and clearly explained. Most people have no clue of the difference between a republic and a democracy. Most people like a democracy until they come out on the losing side of an argument.

    Amen for constitutional rule!

      Thanks Lorilee, maybe someday we might turn back in the right direction without suffering through the collapse of the Government.
