Tired of politics

Our right to defend ourselves is given to us by God, not the government. We shouldn’t allow the government to take away something they didn’t give us in the first place. They need to leave well enough alone. All they’re concerned about is their communist agenda to destroy America and get votes by hook or crook. Guns are not the issue. Our rights are the issue. Once taken, never returned.
I don’t know who wrote this, but it’s the truth, and should go up on Tim’s quote wall.
“Armed, we’re citizens. Unarmed, we’re subjects”
True Americans, though fewer and fewer by the day, will always fight tyranny.
God bless America.

I just heard on NPR this morning that New Zealand designated owning a gun as a privilege, not a right (https://www.npr.org/2019/09/13/760460922/new-zealand-moves-to-create-firearm-registry-and-stiffen-penalties-for-gun-crime). Made me think of all those “may issue” states where the applicant has to get “permission” from the sheriff. Kind of scary the way things are going…

Term Limits would be real swell in fixing lots of things, in the meanwhile, it is very tiring yet change can take place.

Most times it’s a slow moving juggernaut. Then there’s other actions that pop up and start gaining momentum, the recall effort for CA Gov Newsom is gathering signatures and his approval rating is coming down. He overplayed his hand and he knows it. There are lots of candidates ramping up to take back districts.

Yes it is tiring but its perseverance that can make the difference is what I believe. But its in my nature to fight the good fight, and boy am I tired, frustrated, and just darn sick of it.

I still feel it must be done and I’d rather be the man in the arena who tried than the cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat

In case anyone is interested there is a GRASSROOTS PROJECT going on now to call an ARTICLE V CONVENTION OF STATES. And so far there have been 15 states that have passed the RESOLUTIONS CALLING FOR ONE. They need to have a total of 34 states in total to FORCE CONGRESS TO CALL ONE. And one of the items that they want to pass in TERM LIMITS ON BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS. and you can go to “www.coventionofstates.com” and sign the petition to help. And if you also want to volunteer you can do that to. I’m a volunteer for them now. And I help with follow ups with people in my area that have signed the petition and want to volunteer as well.

Here is an update on the ARTICLE V CONVENTION OF STATES. In the last month 3 more states have past the resolution calling for one. The count is now up to around 18 or 20 calling for a convention. And there are 3 more states that are looking into it as well. And as I’ve said I’m a volunteer for ARTICLE V CONVENTION OF STATES.

I’m leery of any such conventions primarily because I don’t know that I trust State officials much more than I do the one’s we have at a Federal Level. 17 States have enacted Red-Flag type laws and how many have them ginning up in their respective legislatures?

The other reason I have concerns is what happens when they convene and convince enough States to move away from the intended agenda of COS and they start dickering with everything and convince 38 States not only to not do anything about term limits but also get rid of the 2nd Amendment or put restrictions on other Amendments.

We currently have 15 blue States, with another 5 that lean blue. There’s at least 15 states that would be battle ground and leave 3 Red that need to flip and that nightmare could become a reality.

The opposite side of that coin is that there are 13 red States with another 3 that lean blue. Leaving that same 15 battleground States that would leave 7 blue States that would need to flip. I much more unlikely scenario IMO.

So if there aren’t the numbers to accomplish the objective, and in fact in calling the States together risk losing ground…why call the convention at all?

Note: my math is off somewhere as I’m sure @Zee will be by to advise me I’ve got 51 states between the two groups, but somehow I’m counting a State twice. :slight_smile:

Perfect! I share your feelings but we cannot grow weary of the fight. The left is counting on us to give up. We must talk about the systematic erosion of liberty through the dismantling of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Just posting on pro 2A sites isn’t going to win converts. The left owns the press, most educational institutions, and the deep state. We have to get everyone outside of the large population centers to vote. That’s where the Patriots live.
