“To Protect Themselves Against Tyranny in Government”

Good morning guys…I hope this finds all well.

“Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. ”

“My reading from history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”

“The strongest reason for the people to retain and keep the right to bear arms is, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”

All three quotations were written by Thomas Jefferson, long before our present government existed.

That man had foresight, did he not?

These three quotes were sent to me from a very good friend of mine, and one whose writings have been seen on our website from time to time.

I call him AP, and this man is a true patriot in every sense of the word.

AP is a self-made man, in his 90’s, a veteran of WWII, a staunch believer in our Constitution and ALL it stands for, and a person not unlike so many of us simply because he LOVES this Country and all it stood for.

“Stood for?” Did I misspeak?

Unfortunately I didn’t.

We lose freedoms every single day.

The lawless have now become…the law.

Through executive orders, political correctness, the mainstream media, literal indoctrination of our children and grandchildren through our far left educational system, illegal immigration, and terminology being shoved down our throats to soften, or deceive true intent or mislead us in so many different ways…

“Enemy combatants” to describe terrorists, or “progressives” to describe elected elite who hide behind this, “nice term for…communists.”

Wasn’t it our President himself when speaking of Sarah Palin told us, “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig?”

The very same can be said of enemy combatants, and progressives, because no matter how much make-up you try to cover it with, they are still…terrorists and communists.

Let’s just say, “If the shoe fits…wear it.”

When are WE, the silent majority, going to take a hard lesson learned from the progressive playbook and stop being…so silent?

Instead of listening ALL the time to their name calling, finger pointing, race baiting, hate mongering, divide and conquer style of politics, can we not turn the very same on them?

You know full well the difference between the two would be our facts in regards to our freedoms and liberties this Country USED to provide for us, versus THEIR jibberish they lay upon their own constituents, whom they have literally dumbed down…bought and paid for with pennies on the dollar through a welfare state, and the literal hate induced rhetoric they enflame them with.

Today, these welfare recipients are convinced it is you and I who have put them in the position they are in as this is exactly what the elected elite tell them…over and over, and over!

When in reality, it has been the goodness of our hearts to even allow this to take place. Our…love thy neighbor” Christian values.

I have made this next statement until I’m blue in the face…


I read the other day, that here in the US, we now have more people on disability than the entire population of Greece.

10,982,920…almost 11 million people on disability now.

I wonder the percentage of TRUE disabled people? I’d be willing to bet it’s not even half…or even close.

Our politicians have made this giveaway mentality the norm, and have countless organizations that TEACH, teach them mind you, how to bilk we the taxpayer more and more.

Once again…funding our own demise.

Their goal…destruction of the middle class.

Once WE become dependent…game over. We’ll ALL live on…Rowhouse Street.

Social Justice? That’s what they claim.

Social Equality? Yep…we’ll all be broke.

That’s bout as equal as you can get, huh?

You better think about that…bein broke scenario, people.

It won’t be just broke financially.

It means broke mentally, and spiritually as well.

Once tomorrow has absolutely NO possibility of ever bein better than today, it’ll be a pretty despondent world we live in, huh?

Every single day…the same.

Week after week.

Month after month.

Will there be food on the shelves?

Milk for your babies?

Gas for your car?

Heat in your home?

If so…could you possibly afford it?

Not if we continue to elect communists into office.

I’m crazy you say?

You only have to educate yourself in a very simple and easy to do way. It will tell you quite clearly the end result our elected elite are striving for…

Read history…World history.

Better yet, I’m sure many of you know friends who came here from communist bloc countries…ask them.

I have a buddy from Poland. Lost EVERYTHING he had to the communists…


Moved here for the opportunity our Country provided for him and his family.

He thinks we’ve lost our mind in our choice of elected officials!

He says, “DOUG…you are living today in a mild form of socialism…it will continue to grow, corrupt, and ruin this Nation. You guys don’t read history?”

“ Oh…it starts of nice enough…free food…free rent…free, free, free…(soundin familiar?)Then suddenly…no milk for your children!”

This man has lived the so called, “socialist utopia.”

What the uneducated don’t realize is that the only utopia that will exist will be exclusively for…the elite.

My buddy worries himself sick that now, after coming to the good ole USA and our political environment today, he’ll now lose everything…for a third time!

A few headlines…

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) proposed using the Internal Revenue Service to curtail Tea Party group funding during a speech on how to “exploit” and “weaken” the movement at the Center for American Progress on Thursday.

Wouldn’t that have to be considered as using your political power to pursue your own political agenda, as well as the destruction of any other mindset, our Constitution be damned? Doesn’t that reflect as a true democratic society?

Funding our own demise?

Man in Wisconsin sentenced to one year in jail for attempting to defraud disability claiming to be blind.

Seems he collected $115,000 in unlawful Medicare benefits and evaded $178,000 in taxes between 2004 and 2009 in addition to disability payments.

Evidently, in our government, when you’re using someone else’s money (OURS!), you seem to be much more lenient while passing it out.

But shoot, they don’t read the bills passed into legislation anymore, why would I think they’d be much more stringent and check people out prior to deeming them…disabled?

Crazy me, huh? What could I possibly be thinkin?

Funding our own demise?

Healthcare anyone? I find it bizarre that more people have lost their credible health insurance since the rollout of Obama care than have been enrolled.

Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, whose documentary 2016: Obama’s America took a critical look at President Barack Obama and was a surprise hit in 2012, will be arrested in New York on Friday for allegedly violating campaign-finance law.

Is it just me, or do most remember ALL the questionable campaign financing our President received from overseas, much from anti-America peoples?

Very convenient, the law…when “the lawless” are now, once again…the law!

In closing, we need to take a good, long, hard look at what Mr. Jefferson’s three quotes are warning us of….democracy losing out to giveaway programs, a government grown way, way too large, and our rights through our 2nd amendment to keep and bear arms.

Unfortunately, here in our Country today…silence is no longer golden.

Not on our part!

We as believers in our Founding Fathers, and what freedoms they laid out for us are going to have to start opening our mouths, just as loud, and just as often as our far left leaning political opponents.

We HAVE to stand up and be heard…

You guys have a great day and God Bless.

Keep a smile on your face, and one in your heart.

Doug and Lucky

    It may be trifling but ‘Funding our own demise?’ why the question mark? More a statement of fact, I would think! Without a doubt, my favorite TJ is, “The price of Freedom, is Eternal Vigilance.” To bad we forgot that!

      Typo error?? Will that work?? LOL! It is though a statement of fact..we ARE funding our own demise. You are right, sir.

      “The price of Freedom, is Eternal Vigilance.” Yep, it seems we, as a whole, totally forgot that, huh? You know, for far too long, by far too many, we believed our Country had checks and balances to correct any downturn…we dropped our guard.

      Thanks for stopping by, and here’s wishing you and yours the very best in all things!
