When the Government Fears the People There Is Liberty!

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary
to the security of a free State, the right
of the people to keep and bear Arms,
shall not be infringed."

- Second Amendment to the Constitution

Our greatest of Founding Fathers and our third American president had it right: "When the people fear the government there is tyranny, but when the government fears the people there is liberty!" Knowing that the government over time since our founding as a free nation would grow very corrupt and oppressive, Jefferson predicted and advocated revolution, even a violent one when necessary — in effect to clean out the swamp that would necessarily seek to gobble up liberty. While he saw some government as necessary evil, he thus had a huge fear about its ultimately enslaving the lives of American citizens, as it had in France, where he also was one of the architects of its bloody revolution.

Today, 243 years after his having penned the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson's prophesy has come to be sadly realized. Not since the days of King George III has the citizenry been subjected to the degree of tyranny that we now are forced to swallow from not just corrupt politicians and so-called government leaders, but those who put them in power and support them.

The nation is on the verge of coming totally unglued, as the likes of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her rabid leftist comrades in the "Capital of Corruption," along with their allies on the left — comprised of Trump-hating radical feminists, radical gays, lesbians and transgenders, radical blacks, radical Muslims (including those who have recently infiltrated government itself), radical anti-Semites and anti-Christians, illegal immigrants and atheists — seek to deconstruct and trash the vision of the likes of Jefferson, Washington, Franklin and Adams and substitute not just a socialist state, but a Bolshevik-style Godless control not far different than with the gulags of Joseph Stalin.

Propping up these leftists is the leftist media, comprised of the likes of the New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, the Huffington Post, Slate, Mother Jones, and BuzzFeed. And let's not forget the powerful social media companies, such as Google/YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Apple, who discriminate against anyone who seeks to further independence from their socialist ideal by publishing the truth. Couple this with the power of Hollywood, and the left's propaganda machine would make the Reich Minister of Propaganda proud.

And then there is our disgraceful and cowardly third branch of government, the judiciary, which has largely become a rubber stamp for corrupt politicians (as was true under King George III) to do their bidding, and we have more than a crisis! Particularly since the judiciary is at present overwhelmingly leftist, the so-called jurists who sit on the bench are perhaps the greatest threat to our once democratic state. Intended to protect We the People from the tyranny of the other two branches of government, they have become the hammer which cements near total leftist government control over our daily lives and fortunes.

And, by and large even the allegedly conservative judges who now take up space on the bench, have rolled over and allowed their leftist brethren to rule the school. As an ultimate example, just read the recent opinions by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts, a man who has a longing to be liked in the boudoirs of leftist Washington and is more than willing to sell out the citizenry for the champagne and caviar of Georgetown.

Make no mistake about it: the left is waging a war against the rest of the nation and not just conservatives and people of faith. It is deadly serious and its hatred of the intended American way of life is more than palpable: it wreaks of fatal disdain, condescension and outright rabid and dangerous contempt. If the left had its ultimate wish and design, it would like to kill all of us who stand in its way to a takeover of the nation.

And that again is exactly what the British Crown had in mind when we declared independence on July 4, 1776. Either submit to a tyrannical monarch, or perish! But what is even more troubling in today's world is that King George III was much less of threat to our survival than the left is now. As just one example, he did not possess the technology, such as mass government surveillance by the FBI, CIA and NSA, and other means, to corral the people and keep them down.

And that leads us to the reason for the Second Amendment. Our God-given right to bear arms, and our concomitant right to commission militias, was put in place to serve as a check against what we are now witnessing. Guns and militia are not dirty words! They are a necessary safeguard to liberty and freedom.

Some of my brave clients have been supported by members of militias. They did not break man's law, much more God's law. Instead they stood up for their rights under the Second Amendment. I am talking about the likes of Cliven Bundy and his sons Ryan, Ammon, Dave and Mel and a new client Francis Schaeffer Cox. Go to www.clivenbundydefensefund.org and www.freeschaeffercox.com and read about these brave Americans, who while supported by those bearing arms broke no laws in defense of freedom and liberty. But despite this, our corrupt legal system run by political hacks, which does not take kindly being challenged, attempted to lock them away for life in the case of the Bundys. In the case of Schaeffer Cox, the government for the time being has succeeded. There is a growing number of other patriots of similar circumstance.

The lesson is this! In the face of mounting government tyranny, and the war of the left to take over the nation, We the People have a constitutional right to be armed and to organize and join militias to defend ourselves. People of good conscience will never be the first to use their arms, or set free their militias to harm others, but must be ready in self-defense should a violent revolution break out. Today, given the tactics and designs of the left and its radical allies, this seems inevitable, as Jefferson predicted.
