…Crest or Aquafresh or Colgate is the best toothpaste. No biggie.
How about when 4 out of 9 Supreme Court Justices decide you do NOT have the right to own or carry a gun? Still no biggie?
What happens when that 5th Justice signs on with the rest of the liberal Justices?
Two weeks ago, the Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision returned a ruling to lower court that effectively did away with the gun ban in Chicago. Earlier in 2010, the Heller case undid the Washington, DC gun ban. Conservatives and Gun Owners finally felt the Constitution was actually being enforced, and that the Founders’ advocacy of the right to life — protecting that life — was enshrined in American law. But, 4 of the 9 Justices deemed a ban on gun ownership as constitutional. Let me repeat: Disregarding the text of the 2nd Amendment below, 4 of the 9 Justices deemed a ban on gun ownership as constitutional!!
“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.”
Over the 4th of July weekend 2010, Conservatives and 2nd Amendment Advocates should have felt heart-wrenching-cold-shudder as a rumor spread that Justice Anthony Kennedy would soon retire — a move that (after Obama appointed another Progressive) would put the left-wing slant of the Supreme Court firmly in control (again 5-4). And, this is what the Progressives have been praying for since the advent of candidate Barack Obama — that they would win the Presidency and change the makeup of the Supreme Court to allow a rubber stamp of their agenda… …which includes the destruction of free speech (except theirs) and the destruction of the right to keep and bear arms (except the government).
This is why voting for the platform of the candidate is SO important, and why Conservatives are screaming about the truth behind the facade that is Barack Obama. We knew that he believed it okay to kill babies after birth; we knew that he didn’t believe in the sanctity of the Constitution; we knew that he would raise taxes; we knew that he would exponentially increase the size of government, and we knew that he would destroy the coal and oil industries. People firmly against Abortion, firmly for Gun Ownership, firmly for low taxes, firmly for small government, and firmly for all Energy Types… …still voted for him.
Elections have consequences, and when you lose the right to defend yourself legally against the gun-toting-maniac-criminal that is crawling through your window to rape your daughter, kill you and steal your wallet… …remember your vote for Barack Obama!
