Playing For The Media
If you haven't noticed, the Constitution has been replaced by the will of the masses. Actually, any fringe group willing to scream loud enough for long enough that enough politicians consider them a big enough voting block.
Without the Constitution to keep ignorant nanny politicians in check, it has become a sad existence for freedom lovers. In an attempt to quiet these fringe groups, freedom lovers have been fighting this battle by compromise. This leads to many problems, not the least of which is if you are constantly playing defense in this war you will only end up constantly playing defense in this war.
Getting out of the trenches to take back our rights was mentioned a few post ago. I do support putting up a fight against the freedom haters, screaming loud and long if you have too. And when it is your time to go, do so kicking and screaming, (if you are so inclinded, take some evil out before you go as well).
This is where it gets sad. Because, if we aren't fighting for the Constitution to regain the status it once had, we will never be able to go home. Our entire life will be spent on the battlefield. Truthfully, that sucks.
This is one reason I don't support compromising on the Constitution. While I have done it and I understand the reasoning behind it, compromising will only get us into the next round of the fight. A fight that never should have happened had the Constitution never been compromised to begin with.
Two quick examples of the will of the masses being in control therefore needing to be controlled:
First, watch the news* for awhile, *spit spit. See how police line up weapons seized from some "compounds"? The definition of "compound" is any residence with an outbuilding, currently being replaced with the words, "suspected drug house." Weapons will be placed on a table, spread out, and media will be allowed to video tape all those scary looking guns, (whether it was legal for the owner's to have them or not).
Second, I point you to this story; Preliminary finding of self-defense in fatal shooting Spokane Sheriff's spokesperson opens his mouth, and out comes nothing. Well, no facts at least;
Reagan did not elaborate why detectives think there was self-defense in their investigation into the shooting of 29-year-old Dustin Lowe last week.You see Dustin Lowe, a bad man, was shot and killed by a sheriff's deputy last week. It sounds like Dustin Lowe was unarmed, and there are questions as to whether it was a good shoot, hence the investigation. Don't get me wrong, I'm not making a judgement in the matter, but I do have some experience with Spokane Sheriff's Dept. Inside information that is. Anyway, back to the spokesman playing for the media:
