The truth that was swept under the rug

Is It Justified to Fight?

Bigblock57, blogalwarning blog.

It is not un-American to fight to preserve our rights against tyrannical government. (See the quote at the bottom of this post.) The 2nd Amendment clearly intended to make sure citizens will have the means to do exactly that. However, I have a different issue here. As much as I hate it, more than 50% of Americans voted for that anti-American and corrupt president – Obama. So the question is, is the minority justified in fighting the will of the majority? Bear in mind that the constitution has been gradually eroded for decades. The only difference is that the new administration continues in the erosion set forth, in a much faster pace than before. Everybody was agreeable with constitutional erosion for decades (except for ranting), and several periods of republican majority were not used to un-erode the constitution or to strengthen it agains further erosion by adding amendments and improving existing amendments. Maybe it is just the nature of the beast – that a constitution focused on giving the power to the people, will be eroded by power-grabbing politicians. (Which politicians are by definition power grabbers.) And by definition there will always be enough people who prefer to rely on government that will let politicians grab power. Maybe this amazing experiment in liberty has come to its end?  Maybe the only solution (other than giving up) is a separation to two countries – a liberal and a constitutional? Given the results of the several previous elections that were so close to 50:50, could it be that we already are two separate countries?


“As civil rulers… may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces… might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.” (Tench Coxe)

  1. The Constitution has been a big part of my studies and writing as of late (http://tinyurl.com/c7e8pg). I, too, see how it has been quietly eroded over the years – it’s disappointing to see the rampant changes the current administration has been attempting to make. People want to believe that the government has their best interests in mind. It has become startling over the last several years how blatantly obvious their own agendas have become. http://tinyurl.com/bfhwjk
