A wise man once said: “Freedom stands on five boxes: The Soap Box, The Ballot Box, the Jury Box, the Witness Box, and… the Cartridge Box.
Just as we predicted, gun sales and ammo sales are going through the roof in America. It did not take the use of my crystal ball to foretell this on-going event. All it took was a wee bit of common sense and paying attention to the world around me.
Back in November, Americans went against nearly everything the founders of the country stood for and elected a socialist president and bolstered the strength of leftists in our national legislature with even more socialists who continue to refer to themselves as democrats. Now we, for (NEARLY) all intents and purposes, have a socialist government in America.
If you take the time to read up on socialism you find, almost immediately… in every definition, that socialism is defined as the first step a nation takes towards communism. As of this hour, America stands divided --- right down the middle. Half the country has expressed a desire to go socialist/communist, and the other half has expressed a desire to remain a free, democratic nation. Even an idiot knows “a nation divided cannot stand.”
As much as I despise saying this, it does appear a fight is brewing. Those Americans who wish to preserve America as a free nation are gearing up with the intention of manning the barricades to defend liberty in this country, at least their half of the country, anyway. Somehow, and this is really depressing, somehow, the socialists in America cannot get their minds wrapped around the fact that “liberty loving Americans” are prepared to take up arms to defend their country. Indeed, those “liberty loving Americans” are rushing to procure arms and ammunition for what they fear might, at some point, become more than a verbal fight.
Other nations of the world are looking at Americans and they see it, as well. The “Chi-Comms”, (the Chinese Communists) who have been underwriting America’s debt for many years now, are concerned that if America begins to break, they, the Chinese, stand an exceedingly good chance of losing all the money they have lent us over the years. They are worried. China’s Premier, Wen Jiabao, just recently said: "We have made a huge amount of loans to the United States. Of course we are concerned about the safety of our assets. To be honest, I'm a little bit worried, I would like to call on the United States to honor its words, stay a credible nation and ensure the safety of Chinese assets." Wen made those comments at a news conference at the close of China's annual legislative session March 13th.
Just how serious is it? It is far more serious than the average American knows, at the moment. I don’t expect the MSM will cover this story any more than they absolutely must. To get a true feel for what is happening in America today you have to go to the regional news outlets, such as regional newspapers, and small town papers. The Mainstream Media is not going to print anything that might bring into question the great Socialist Utopia they supported by going into the tank for Obama. Even as their great journalistic empires crash down around their shoulders, as is happening today, they simply cannot let loose of their leftist agenda and print the news that accurately reflects what is happening in American society today… just a few weeks into the Obama administration. To learn the truth you have to look elsewhere. And that is what we did.
There is an excellent article at the “Tulsa World” site. It is entitled: “Sales of guns, ammo still high” with a subtitle of: “One shop says the "hoarding" of ammunition since Obama's election has created a shortage.” You’ll find it HERE.
If you have been laboring under the mistaken impression that an Obama presidency would “unite” the nation” this article might shed some light on the just how wrong you are. It is entitled: “Liberals told to leave. An instructor for a hunter safety course orders Obama voters to get out of his class.” You’ll find it HERE. If nothing else, this story demonstrates the depth of the distrust and the degree of repugnance of, and for, the socialists now in charge of our country, by a huge cross section of the American population.
The fact is that public confidence in the government, by Americans, is low and getting even lower… rapidly! There is a “must read” article at the Wall Street Journal website entitled: “Obama's Poll Numbers Are Falling to Earth.” The article is by Douglas E. Schoen and Scott Rasmussen. You will find it HERE.
