Benjamin Franklin Knew it was Inevitable

To members of the Constitutional Convention, “Sir, though we may set out in the beginning with moderate salaries, we shall find that such will not be of long continuance. Reasons will never be wanting for proposed augmentations; and there will always be a party for giving more to rulers, that the ruler may be able in return to give more to them. Hence, as all history informs us, there has been in every state and kingdom a constant kind of warfare between the governing and the governed, the one striving to obtain more for its support, and the other to pay less. And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the princes or enslaving of the people. Generally, indeed, the ruling power carries its point, and we see the revenues of princes constantly increasing, and we see that they are never satisfied, but alway in want of more. The more the people are discontented with the oppression of taxes, the greater need the prince has of money to distribute among his partisans, and pay the troops that are to suppress all resistance, and enable him to plunder at pleasure.”

Quoted from “The 5000 Year Leap Principles of Freedom 101” Skousen 1981

Sarah Brady on the Warpath for Anti-gun (Anti-Freedom) Legisaltion!

Sarah Brady said following the election of Obama, “As soon as President-elect Obama is inaugurated and the 111th Congress is sworn in, the Brady Campaign will be making an all-out push to advance our lifesaving legislative agenda… But that doesn’t mean we are waiting until Inauguration Day.”

The next couple of years will the toughest battle for existence… yes I said existence, that the American gun owner has faced since the GCA of 1968.  Now is the time to write your elected officials and tell them that you want your rights protected at all costs.  Don’t stop with Senators and Congressmen, write to your Governor as well.  As the head of your State government the Governor is a member of an elite group of politicians who can bring pressure to bear on issues of importance.

Tell your officials, NO NEW TAXES, and NO INCREASED TAXES on any part of the firearms industry or it’s products.  Make it clear that you care about this issue, and that you vote based on how officials deal with it.

The article linked below defines politically correct speech when applied to guns and gun laws.  It’s worth a read.http://mensnewsdaily.com/2009/01/08/gun-law-update-brady-gun-ban-strategy-outlined/
