I received an email about the rise in crimes over the last 12 months in Australia, since the citizens were required to turn in there firearms. Now only police and criminals have guns, and the private citizen is left defenseless. Many are expressing fears that Obama is going to get laws passed here to ban weapons alos, and they are buying out gun shows all over the nation.
So I decided to share the rest of my reply email here on the blog. Enjoy it.
Citizens have a right under the Constitution to own and bear arms. All of the laws that prohibit weapons should be challenged by every freedom loving attorney with balls across this land. Weapons should be made MANDATORY and classes and weapons should be required for all citizens. Classes can be taught in schools so that the young will learn about them, learn safety and respect for weapons, and most of all learn what REAL control is all about.
If there are entitlement programs that are necessary, this is right up there with universal health care. Which I think can be doable under the right conditions. First, allow alternative (and less expensive) treatments to be covered, and reform the FDA by hiring real medical experts instead of lawyers and accountants.Focus on holistic cures, including faith healing and prayer. Utilize as many natural and non-invasive remedies BEFORE radical treatments are performed, including surgery, radiation and chemical (Chemo) therapies.
I didn’t vote for Obama and neither did you (I think?) but we are both going to have to face the reality of him being the next President. So the way I see it, we just have to hold him to the promises he made, and the standards we demand in a President who takes oath to uphold the Constitution of the united States of America. And to get energy as a priority to support a new economic boon. New jobs created to support a new energy paradigm, built on wind and sun, waves and steam. Yes, but not by coal or gas, the steam is from the sun’s heat. We’ll also have a new auto industry since the present one doesn’t know how to make electric drive vehicles without expensive batteries that make the savings in fuel a poor return on investment.
We don’t have to take food to supplement oil, nor do we have to rely on refining operations that are over thirty years since expansion, and at the mercy of the weather. We can have vehicles that are electric driven, with GPS and the iPod dock, LED lighting with advances so rapid that it won’t be long before we will start seeing LED headlights.
McCain may not have been a bad President, but the Bush legacy was his undoing. And with all the teasing she got in the media, Palin was as ready to step up as Obama. No, American really needed a third choice, but the media would not allow that. Early on it seemed apparent that the RNC was not fond of Dr. Ron Paul, and with all of the support he was getting on the internet, he received none from the media. John Edward’s indiscretions gained more air time than Paul. And in it’s failure to alert and inform, the media failed to inform the public of other party candidates that were on the ballot.
As Americans, we have become lazy and obese. We have reached for the remote, settled for fast food, fast relief from heartburn, and whatever choices the media gave us and never extended very far beyond the obvious spin. Very few of us really investigates and educates when we do find those gems among the coals. “Judge not, lest ye be judged.” so I will give the man a chance to sh!t or shine.
