Obama: Republican's need to listen to the American citizens
A column by the Editor
web posted January 28, 2013
COLUMN – At Obama's second inauguration he
laid out an agenda that Karl Marx, liberals, Democrats, the so-called
"main-stream-media (MSM)" and communists can all be proud of - and they
are. A liberal Mecca of socialism/fascism and a State-run society of
"fairness" and "equality", that in reality is neither fair nor
equitable. However, the "low-information voter" sucks up the carefully
crafted sound bites that fill the evening news like a biscuit does
President Obama just this weekend said that Republicans need to listen
to the voice of the American people on his anti-American gun proposals.
The fawning leftist media bring forth the talking points provided by
Obama and the Democrats and restate them as if they are facts. However,
the reality is it would do Obama, Democrats and the MSM well to heed
In recent polls by Rasmussen, the most respected in the polling
community, shows it is Obama and the Democrats that are "out of touch"
with the American people. The polls found 74% say Americans have a
Constitutional right to own firearms. 64% see gun ownership as being a
tool against a tyrannical federal government. 57% say that enforcing
current gun laws is more important than new gun laws.
And why doesn't Obama, if liberal bastions of Democrat rule are to be
the model of society, point to his corrupt hometown of Chicago and the
success of gun bans there. It may be because the Democrat controlled
states and cities with gun bans have the highest violent crimes
statistics and murder rates with firearms. Seven people were killed
streets of Chicago on this past Saturday night alone.
Why doesn't Obama point to Washington D.C., New York City or Detroit as
proof that his agenda is best for America? Because doing so would prove
he and his Democrat minions, including the media, are bald faced liars.
These liberal Mecca's prove just the opposite, when guns are outlawed
only outlaws have guns. Believe it or not, they are called "criminals"
for a reason, they don't obey the laws already.
Would any of Obama's suggested draconian gun laws prevented the mass
shooting of 20 children in Newtown? In a word, no. Those guns were
legally obtained by a law abiding citizen who was murdered by her
crazed son before he stole her guns. In fact, no so-called "assault
weapon" was used during the shooting spree, only pistols. The AR-15 was
found locked in the trunk of the shooter's car.
It is also important to point out that the Bill of Rights secured
freedoms given by God in Natural Rights, not government, and were put
in place to prevent government from trampling on those rights.
I also find it hugely ironic that the very weapons that Obama wants to
ban from American citizens, including already banned fully automatic
weapons, were the very weapons that Obama ordered to be sold to Mexican
drug lords with the "Fast
scandal that the media to this day refuses to cover.
Odd, is it not, that Obama allowed drug lords to illegally purchase
semi-automatic "assault weapons" while he would now deny a citizen from
being able to own to counter an attack by the very people he armed? It
is the height of hypocrisy, just like in Chicago.
The blood of hundreds of dead Mexicans and at least two Border Patrol
Officers are on the hands of Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.
Remember, it was Holder who stated the American people needed to be
"brainwashed" in their thinking of gun rights.
But that is the way liberals believe. I would say think, but thinking
is not a part of the liberal mindset. "Feeling" is far more
As I have stated before, any weapon that the federal government does
not want a law abiding citizen to own, you need at least two.
