Tag: 2nd Amendment

Can’t we all just get along? My answer is….no….no we can’t, here’s why:

All to often I am asked “can’t we all just get along?” My answer is no and here’s why.

I am a Conservative. When I say that, it means something. It is backed by an ideology and policies that I wholeheartedly believe in.  Conservatism is not a “feeling,” it does not change.

Conservatism is the belief in a limited government. This is what our Founding Father’s believed in too. This was the whole point of our Constitution, to limit the role of Government overreach. Liberals like big government. They believe that the government knows better than the individual.

Conservatism is the belief that ALL LIFE is sacred and Must be protected. I am pro-life. I believe that a baby in the womb is LIFE, and science agrees. According to our 14th Amendment Life should/must be protected. I am a mom. I have carried three babies inside my womb. My babies were separate from me, though they briefly lived inside of me. They should be entitled to the same rights as you or me. Liberals believe that babies in the womb have no rights till they are born. Hillary Clinton: an unborn person has no constitutional rights.

Conservatism believes that the Second Amendment must be protected. The Government doesn’t give us our rights, they are inherently ours because we are Citizens of the United States of America. As a woman and a firearm owner, I can protect myself because that is my right. It is what equalizes me physically to a man when it comes down to self defense. Liberals believe that the Government needs to intervene on an Amendment that they have no claim to.

Our Founding Father’s were Christian Men. This nation was founded upon Judeo Christian Principles. When you study Christianity, the concept that the individual matters is key throughout Jesus’s teachings. In Luke 15:4, Jesus states “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?” Our country was founded upon INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY. Our Constitutional was written around the biblical principles that the individual matters. Conservatism advocates for the individual’s right. We are a Constitutional Republic not a Democracy. In a Democracy the majority rules. In a Constitutional Republic the individual is protected from the majority through Constitutional Law. Today Liberal policies have morphed from Classic Liberalism (which is now Libertarian today) to Socialistic in nature. Socialism is an ideology/policies that advocate for a collective ownership. Production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. Where there is Socialism, the Individuals voice is not heard and these policies in fact oppose the Constitution.

I believe that spending to get out of debt is absurd. Being Conservative means being fiscally Conservative and that is spending what you have, not spending what you don’t have hoping that somehow it’ll all turnaround. If you can’t afford it, don’t buy it. We have watched our Government spend spend spend….thinking that somehow it will all work out….this is why as a nation we are 20+trillion in debt. If you had massive credit card debt, do you keep spending- hoping that the credit card company will send you a letter saying…”hey it’s cool, you don’t have to pay us back?” THIS WOULD NEVER happen! Conservatism is in actuality common sense. Our government has driven us deeper and deeper into debt-at some point our creditors will want to collect! Liberals spend and take. They are opposed to tax cuts and advocate for government subsidies that we cannot afford, because we don’t have the money! The Government does not produce, it takes. It takes from the tax payer, and there are now more and more takers instead of givers -Over 45% of the population doesn’t contribute in taxes!

So simply put, this is why we can’t all get along.

Liberals vehemently oppose Conservative principles and they daily attack those that defend them.

Below is a video I shot a while back explaining “why I am Conservative.”

Let’s talk about guns…shall we…

Tonight President Obama is set to address the nation on our national security. This will consist of him saying “we are all fine and not to worry.” I mean he told us that “ISIS was contained” just hours before Paris was attacked and days before the most deadliest terror attack on US soil (San Bernardino) since 9/11, Obama told us that there was “No specific and credible intelligence indicating a plot on the homeland.” Anyways….he’s going to tell us to calm down and that we are all fine….then I predict his narrative changes…..

Instead of addressing the fascist radicalized ideology of Islamic terror that is rapidly growing like an unconstrained cancer – Obama will talk about gun control.

Yep! That’s right…..because in his world it’s guns that kill people, not people who kill people. He will try to push Executive orders on gun measures to be taken, all the while -telling the American people it’s for our ‘own good.’ He’ll try to go around Congress and like I have said time and time again those in Congress are our voice….but with the wielding of his pen he will silence the majority and compromise our 2nd Amendment. The 2nd Amendment was not put in place so that we could hunt or for recreational purposes- it was put in place so that we the people -may protect ourselves from those who wish to do us harm and also from an overreaching tyrannical government.

*Historically -governments that were corrupt and tyrannical-initially disarmed their populous.

“Oh but Obama just wants to put in play some precautionary measures to protect us” -one might say. FYI the guns obtained by the shooters in San Bernardino were obtained legally. California has some of the most stringent gun restrictions in the country- it’s not easy at all to get a gun there-and yet these crazies were able to get them. So to imply anything short of total gun confiscation, these nut jobs would still have been able to get guns. The San Bernardino shooters were also able to obtain over a dozen pipe bomb-style devices and hundreds of tools that law enforcement said could be used to build “improvised explosive devices” (IEDs). I guess if we make bombs illegal people will stop making them…….(sarcasm a whole heaping ton of sarcasm!)

No matter what restrictions- laws and so forth are put in play- it’s not going to stop bad people from doing bad things. These restrictions will only stop good people from stopping bad guys who want to to bad things.

I was back home visiting my family on December 7th, 2007 in Colorado Springs and had just left a New Life Church service. When I returned home to my parents house, I was told to turn on the news -there was a gunman at the church where I had just left! He entered the church the same entrance my family and I had used. This gunman walked into the building opened fire killing two people and injured three more before he was shot and wounded by a member of our church’s congregation- who was conceal and carrying. The shooter was well armed and ready to kill many more but was stopped by an ARMED CITIZEN!

Friends of mine life’s were spared that day because of a gun! I have had arguments with those terrified of guns. Wanting all guns removed from our society-but if that were to happen, perhaps hundreds more would have died that Sunday morning on December 7th-but you see, A GUN stopped the violence.

Paris has strict gun laws, Chicago has strict gun laws, Norway has strict gun laws….. Below are examples of some mass shootings that have occurred in other countries with very stringent gun regulation:

“• On July 22, 2011, a total of 80 people were killed in Norway when Anders Behring Breivik, a political extremist, bombed a government building in Oslo and then went on a shooting rampage on the island of Utoya, just outside the city.

• On March 11, 2009, in Winnenden, Germany, a teenage gunman killed 15 people. The majority of the victims were children and teachers killed when the shooter opened fire in three classrooms in a local secondary school. The gunman shot two other people before killing himself after being cornered by the local police.

• On Sept. 23, 2008, in Kuahajoki, Finland, a gunman shot 10 people to death after opening fire on a classroom in the Kuahajoki School of Hospitality. After killing the students, the shooter burned the victims’ bodies.” –Politifact.com

But our media sources don’t talk about these cases. Instead of focusing on mental illness, radicalized ideology, and terror -which ARE the root causes- our media focuses on the insistence of disarming Americans Citizens so that they cannot protect themselves if they were to find themselves in a mass shooting. They’d rather see citizens be sitting ducks…waiting with crossed fingers for help to arrive while innocent lives are taken.

With our immigration laws pretty much non-existent, we have no idea who is entering our country and what their intentions are. If ever there was a time to be armed, to be knowledgeable on guns, and gun safety -it is now!

Now sit back and watch tonight, as our President twists the narrative to implement gun control…..and ask yourself……..why?

“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 of the United States Constitution
