A notice to politicians, from SOF It is time to speak plainly for the good citizens and patriots of this nation who believe unendingly in the Constitution of the US of A. Though foreign governments may disarm their subjects,we will not go down that road. We will not disarm and see our Freedoms stripped away.The lessons of history are numerous,clear,and bloody.A disarmed population inevitably becomes an enslaved population.A disarmed population is without power,reduced to childlike obedience to- and dependance upon- the organs of a parental state. A disarmed population will lose-either peicemeal or in one sweeping act-those basic rights for which the citizens of America risked their lives and fortunes over 200 years ago. We Will Not Disarm.The right to self-protection-the internal directive of every living creature,be it mouse or man-is the most fundamental right of all.It is a right that must be exercised against the predators of the streets, against the predators hidden within agencies of law enforcement, and against the most dangerous predators of all-those to be found in government,whose insidious grasping for power is relentless and never-ending. We Will Not Disarm. Not in the face of robbers,rapists,and murderers who prey upon our families and friends.Nor in the face of police and bureau agents who turn a blind eye to the Constitution, who would betray the birthright of their countrymen; nor in the face of politicians of the lowest order--who pander to the ignorant, the weak, the fearful,the naive; those indebted to a virulent strain of the rich who insulate themselves from the dangers imposed upon other Americans and preach disarmament. We Will Not surrender our handguns,our hunting arms,our firearms of military pattern or military utility, nor their proper furnishing, nor the right to buy, sell, or to manufacture such items.Firearms of military utility, which serve well and nobly in times of social disturbance as tools of defense for the law-abiding, serve also in the quiet role of prevention, against both the criminal and the tyrannical. An armed citizenry--the well-regulated militia of the Second Amendment, properly armed with military arms--is a powerful deterrent, on both conscious and subconscious levels, to those inclined toward governmental usurpations. An armen citizenry stands as a constant reminder to those in power that, though they may violate our rights temporarily, they will no do so endlessy and without consequence. And should Americans again be confronted with the necessity of--may God forbid it--throwing off the chains of a tyrannical and suffocating regime, firearms designed to answer the particular demands of warfare will provide the swiftest and most decisive means to this end. Any law which prohibits or limits a citizens possession of firearms of military utility or their proper furnishings, provides an open window through which a corrupt government will crawl to steal away the remainder of our firearms and our Liberties. Any law which prohibits or limits a citizens possession of firearms, is directly contrary to the letter and spirit of the Second Amendment, in inimical to the Constitution, to the United States of America, and to its citizens. __________________ The only way to deal with ones enemies is with your foot on his chest and your knife at his throat

Part 2;Now--Today--we are witnessing the perilous times forseen by the architects of the Constitution. These are times when our government is demanding--in the guise of measures for the common good--the relinquishment of several rights guarenteed to Americans in the Constitution, foremost among which is the right to keep and bear arms for our own defense. These are times when our government has abdicated its primary responsibility--to provide for the security of its citizens. Swift and sure punishment of outlaws is absent, in its place is offered the fals remedy of disarming the law-abiding. Where this unconstitutional action has been given the force of law, it has failed to provide relief and has produced greater social discord. This discord in turn now serves as the false basis for the demand that we give up other rights, and for the demand for more police, more agents of bureaucratic control to enforce the revocation of these rights. Legislators, jusitces, and law officers must bear in mind that the foundation of their duties is to up hold the fundamental law of the land--The Constitution. They must bear in mindthat the unconstitutional act of disarming one's fellow citizens will disarm one's parents, spouse, brothers, sisters,children, and children's children. They must bear in mind that there are good citizens who--taking heed of George Washington's belief that arms are the Liberty teeth of the people--will not passively allow these teeth to be torn out. There are good citizens who--taking heed of Benjamin Franklin's admonition that those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary security deserve neither--will not surrender not one of their rights. Those who eat away at our right to own and use arms are feeding on the roots of a plant over 2 centuries old, a plant whose blossom is the most free, most powerful nation ever to exist on the face of the earth. The Right to Keep and Bear Arms is the tap root of this plant. All other rights were won at the point of a gun and will endure only at the point of a gun. Could they speak, millions upon millions of this world's dead souls would testify to this truth. Millions upon millions of the living can so testify today. Now--Today--is a critical moment in our history. Will we Americans passively lie down before a government grown disdainful of its best citizens?Or will we again declare: We ARE the government,government functions at our behest, and it mat not rescind our scared rights? Will we place our faith in public servants who behave like our masters? Or will we place our faith in the words and deeds of the daring, far-seeing men and women whose blood, sweat and tears brought forth this nation? Will we believe those who assure us that the police officer will shield us from the criminal? Or will we believe our eyes and ears, presented everyday with news of our unarmed neighbors falling prey in their homes, on our streets, in our places of work and play? __________________ The only way to deal with ones enemies is with your foot on his chest and your knife at his throat

Part 3;Will we bow our heads to cowards and fools who will not learn and do not understand the lessons of human history? Or will we stand straight and assume the daily tasks and risks that Liberty entails? Will we ignore even the lessons of this present era--which has seen the cruel oppression of millions of millions on the continents of europe,asia,africa and so. america--and believe that the continent of North America is immune to such political disease? Or will we wisely accept the realities of this world, wisely listen to and make use of the precautions provided by our ancestors? Will we be decieved by shameless liars who say that disarmament equals safety, helplessness equals strength, patriotism equals criminality? Or will we mark the words of our forefathers, who wrote in plain language: The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed? Let us make it known; We Will choose the latter option in every case. Legislators; Do your duty to your country. Uphold the Constitution as you swore to do. Do not shame yourselves by knocking loose the mighty keystone of this great republic--the right to keep and bear arms. Justices; Do your duty to your country. Examine the origins of our right to weaponry and uphold the letter and spirit of the Constitution. Lawmen; Do your duty to your country. Do not be misguided and misused. Your task is to serve and protect--not to oppress, to disarm and to make helpless your countrymen. To the blind, the ignorant,the apathetic, the safe and sheltered,these may seem to be concerns of another age.They Are Not. They are as vital as they ever have been through history. For times may change but human nature does not.And it is to protect forever against the evil in human nature that the Founding Fathers set aside certain rights as inviolable. For these reasons we must now make known; We Will Not passively take the path that leads to tyranny. We Will Not go down that road.We Will Not Disarm.

That was outstanding. It should be required reading for everyone who considers themselves a citisen of this country. It is so sad that many people in our country now would view that as extremist propaganda and ignore it, writing it off as right wing rhetoric. In exchange for the removal of responsibility for our actions, the leaders of this once free country have removed our basic right to be responsible for our selves. This is unacceptable.

Why is Chelsea Clinton so homely? Because Janet Reno is her real father.

Everyone knows Webster Hubbel is her REAL father. Doubt me? Look at pictures of Webster Hubbel, Chelsea, Hillary, and Bill side by side.

markl32, Don't the Democratic faithful ascribe to a doctrine of Hillary that states that she is sinless and therefore Chelsea (a Christa figure - "female Christ" and future savior of all people) was the product of an immaculate conception?
