Tyranny surrounds us.
It can be downright terrifying and morally decimating. Usurpations
continue as rights are whittled away and the constitutional principles
eroded. The demands on citizens and states from a supposedly “limited”
and “defined” federal government are now innumerable . The Union looks
more and more like a consolidation of states instead of a federal
So, what do we do? What are the options to fight this reversal of the founder’s vision?
Political philosopher and economist Murray Rothbard contemplated this very question.
“We face the great strategic problem of all “radical”Some Wacka-doo’s recommend taking up arms in resistance.
creeds throughout history: How can we get from here to there, from our
current State-ridden and imperfect world to the great goal of liberty?”
Only death will result. The strongest and most heavily armed will
ultimately earn the victory. Freedom cannot reign when the request for
your volition is at the point of a gun.
So how about a good protest? We can march on D.C. We can carry
poignant signs. Maybe we can sign a petition. But they don’t listen. And
ultimately, aren’t we just begging the federal government for their
acquiescence? Why ask permission where none is required?
Another option lies in hoping those black-robed federal employees at the Supreme Court will finally hand down an opinion
limiting federal power in keeping with the intent of the founders. But
somehow, throughout more than 200 years of American history, they’ve
voted in favor of the federal government most of the time. And even if
they do get one right, that doesn’t make us safe. Judges can even
overrule their OWN opinion! Heck, they don’t even have to listen to a
case, just like they did with the NDAA this year! Is this your last
hope? That’s not what the founders believed. The last arbiter of
constitutionality is the people of the states, not nine black robed
mystics of the Constitution.
Or, you can look for hero to save you.
Maybe if you just vote in the right guys, we can take back our country. I mean, why would this bum fail you? He has all the right qualifications! He’s that no-name stooge with a D or an R next to his name.
Look: we’ve tried all of this ad nauseum. Our political strategy
brings to mind the definition of insanity often attributed to Albert
Einstein: doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a
different result. We’ve protested. They ignore us. We’ve voted the bums
out. We get new bums. We counted on the courts. They failed us.
What can we do?
First and foremost, stop acting like a Disney Princess!
No one is coming to save you. The hero you are looking for…..is YOU!
Americans have broken and twisted the founders’ message. Those who
formed this country preached liberty, self-government, decentralization
and self-sufficiency within communities. Today, the federal government
wants you to be dependent on them for everything. including your safety,
your health care, the products you buy, the things you grow and the
decisions you make.
Time to change that message.
Rothbard pointed the way toward the path to liberty.
“On one point there can scarcely be disagreement: a primeWe’ve seen the power of everyday people getting involved at the grassroots during the recent gun debates.

Early this year, the Obama administration called for “common sense”
gun laws to prevent another mass shooting after Sandy Hook. These
“common sense” laws include banning so-called “assault rifles,” creating
a national registration, minimizing magazine capacity, and even
restricting collectable, antiquated firearms. The pure evil that caused
the deaths of children and teachers was deplorable, but it shouldn’t be
used as a tool to criminalize law abiding citizens.
As a preemptive tactic, the Second Amendment Preservation Act was
introduced in 31 states in an effort to hold the federal government
within its constitutionally prescribed role. Eleven states passed the
act through one of its legislative chambers, while four pass it through
both houses. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed the Second Amendment
Preservation Act into law on April 16. Alaska and Missouri are expected
to have their bills sent to their governors soon.
The Kansas bill had no easy journey, but with grassroots support, the
bill made it all the way to the governor’s desk. He signed it without
hesitation. And when U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder threatened the
state, Brownbacks’ response was simple and tactful.
The State of Kansas is in receipt of your letter in whichIn the wake of Kansas’ stand, local action to nullify
you place Kansas on notice regarding the view of the Obama
Administration concerning the state’s Second Amendment Protection Act.
The right to keep and bear arms is a right that Kansans hold dear. It
is a right enshrined not only in the Second Amendment to the United
States Constitution, but also protected by the Kansas Bill of Rights.
The people of Kansas have repeatedly and overwhelmingly reaffirmed their
commitment to protecting this fundamental right. The people of Kansas
are likewise committed to defending the sovereignty of the State of
Kansas as guaranteed in the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the United
unconstitutional federal gun laws is spreading like wildfire in the
state, as well as in Missouri, Colorado and even Alabama. In fact, many
cities across the Union have introduced and passed local legislation.
With enough resistance from cities, towns, counties, and states, federal
gun control will become unenforceable. Through this effort, citizens in
every locality are educating their communities and garnering support
from sheriffs, representatives and neighbors.
