Two minutes of TV news this morning caused my brain to melt and the big idea light to go on. Those of you who read me regularly know that I am a Patriot, and Patriots believe in defense of the US Constitution. Our government has tried its socialist ass off to fail our right to own firearms. They know that three hundred million people with guns would be able to take them down. They also know that we the people are thinking in that direction. There is one giant problem with this premise, i.e. who will lead such a grass-roots effort? Uncle knows that the three hundred million need a trigger. That many people just don’t wake up one morning and decide this is the day I take my country back. The trigger is someone who can organize and lead. Who among us will do that? Any attempt to make this happen will immediately bring uncle to our front door to knock it down.
Uncle also realizes that there is one system in the country that could become the organizing link. The system in place to serve and protect is the police. The police are highly trained and armed in tactics to put down insurrections, robberies, murders, etc. They are nationwide and are a brotherhood who regularly collaborate. Police would be one leadership link needed by we the people to begin a necessary overthrow of a government gone wild. It is hard to imagine that our police would be up to that task when they work with local governments to keep law and order. It is a stretch but possibly one which could work when the time has arrived. This is exactly why I believe Uncle is now demonizing police and wanting to turn them into helpless wusses in carrying out their duties. The TV thing that tips me off is Obama’s latest order to keep military equipment out of the hands of local police departments. O believes putting military equipment into local hands could be used against him. I am one who believes arming local police will work against me, except perhaps in the case I describe above when we will need the police to lead us into action against a government that has forgotten that it is a government for the people, and by the people.
This is the point when I go to say my prayers while waiting for the front door to come flying off its hinges as men dressed in black with full body armor, and pointing AK’s come rushing in to eliminate an old guy exercising his first amendment right.
