Why did the brilliant Founders ever bother to include, as an individual right of the People, a Second Amendment -not that today, anyone can even recite it, let alone comprehend it? Simple: it's the one that power-hungry politicians hate.
It's society's canary in the mineshaft: you can be readily assured that when the Second Amendment starts to be infringed -as it already has in evil social fascist oligarchies such as Massachusetts, New York, Illinois and California -that every other Amendment will be dishonored and trampled upon as well.
Just as in the "slippery slope" argument over the right to life, if we allow the evil social fascists a single opening anywhere, they'll shoehorn it into a blanket absolution to murder anyone, anywhere for no reason whatsoever.
Euthanasia: "they're suffering -it'll ease their pain."
Abortion: "I didn't ask for that little brat!"
Even the "controversial" death penalty: traditionally, only one man in all of society held the physical power of death: the sheriff. A jury -not a judge -could decide you should be killed, but only the sheriff had the authority to carry it out. That historic link in the once-inviolate chain of justice was unceremoniously discarded in the face of society's joy over its new-found toy, electricity. Once public hangings had been superceded by astonishing executions by "Westinghousing" the prisoner, the deed was done, and the sacred power over life and death was shoddily passed off to a mere committee comprised of fat, balding, four-eyed no-nothings eager to witness another smoking human being.
So fantastic were the results that members of temperance organizations and other upstanding community busybodies soon agitated for the doing away with such public spectacles, as they were just too intense for the average sheep. Once physicians believed the Oath they swore to "first, do no harm." but obviously, that antiquated rhetoric is unsuitable for today's society: after all, it includes the concept of healing without pay!
Today's role model? Doctor Kildare? Marcus Welby? No, Doctor Kevorkian! In what way does such societal tinkering by evil social fascists differ from the noble experiments on complacent Jewish prisoners by their compassionate Nazi hosts? Make no mistake: the universe operates on certain immutable principles: what goes around comes around. I took the murders of six million innocent Jews to create the nation of Israel.
It took from 1945 until 1989 to overthrow the communist menace. Those who blithely trample on your rights can expect their descendents to suffer the just consequences of their evil behavior. Those same brilliant Founders wisely included in the magnificent Constitution -even though you've never read it -the right of revolution. Most state Constitutions also include some version of it: president Abraham Lincoln, in his first inaugural address said, "This country, with its institutions, belongs to the People who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing 'government,' they can exercise their Constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it."
malum prohibitum laws forbidding it to the contrary, the People -even
if they don't realize it -actually hold power. It's inevitable: once society
grows lazy enough to foolishly delegate away its precious authority to
mere mercenaries, however well-intentioned, that same evil group of power-mad
politicians will lie, cheat and steal everything humanly possible for
them to do so, until the People are left with nothing.
If you never made a pilgrimage to ground zero in the evil social fascist oligarchy of New York, you missed a rare opportunity to inhale the actual fragrance of that patriotic manure created from the paste of the one thousand seven hundred ninety-six innocent citizens never recovered. You can still visit Shanksville Pennsylvania and show your family what the grave of a patriot looks like: a mere smoking hole in the ground. In the words of Founder Benjamin Franklin, "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
So relax, put your feet up, delicately thumb the remote and casually observe your big screen with surround daily lay out the pageantry of the canaries dying in far away places like Heaton North Dakota, Ruby Ridge Idaho, Waco Texas, and Fremont Michigan, as you gluttonously scoff down your gourmet tidbits in air-conditioned splendor.
Be content to bequeath the blood-work to your hapless descendants. In Germany, as the complacent Jews were being led to the ovens, each of the six million also said, "it can't happen here."
