Show your disdain for gun lobby by voting people out

Since “We the People,” have no control of the congressional votes and they choose to ignore us (six votes short of a Republican mandate) it would behoove the social media to print the names and states of those who chose to side with the “Gun Lobby.”

Keep their names foremost and fresh in the minds of the people until the 2014 election, then our voices can and will be heard by voting them out of office. If and only when that happens will all elected representatives feel the power of the people. Gun Lobby or not.

Use your voices at the polls and refuse to support anyone whose name is on the list, Democrat or Republican.

At hands of U.S. Supreme Court, our republic is dying

Our first president — and founding father — once commented during his administration that “at best, government is a fearful master; at worst, it is a consuming fire.” During the latter 20th century, the number of defenseless people who were rounded up and exterminated worldwide by rogue socialist/communist regimes totaled 56 million minimum (Soviet Union/20 million; China/20 million; Germany/13 million; Turkey/1.5 million; Uganda/300,000 Christians; and the Sudan/ongoing slaughter of Christians). Why no retaliation? Because the citizenry was unarmed and defenseless due to government gun control/confiscation policies.

Here in the U.S. (and certainly not to be outdone), the encroaching, increasingly socialist government has “sanitized” the cold-blooded barbarity of the Euro-Asian communist with such high-tech liquidation methods as abortion (55 million and counting); and now the euthanizing of the elder/disabled; specifically those whose quality of life is deemed to be “unsustainable” by panels of government-appointed doctors; resulting in the ‘pulling’ of their Medicare/Medicaid “plug” and leaving them at the mercy of their families — or hospice. As such, our pro-elected officials are not less bloodthirsty and pagan than Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Mao or Pol Pot; and likewise our pro-choice general population is just as deceived and heartlessly indifferent as any 1940s German, Chinese, or Russian.

The primary villain of the nation’s downhill slide into moral/ideological oblivion over the past four decades has been the U.S. (un) Supreme Court (less); whose previous “benches” were composed of mostly “gaggle” of leftists, feminists, socialists, and promoters/practitioners of same-gender perversion; who have thoroughly corrupted/perverted the nation’s legal justice system from top-to-bottom, beginning with no-fault divorce; accommodation of pagan, degenerate feminism; abortion/pornography-on-demand; and the likely repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). As stated in the sacred writings, “If the foundation be destroyed, then what will the righteous do?”

Perhaps it’s only appropriate that legal justice personnel wear black robes; as “black” is the traditional color of “mourning” — for The Death of a Republic.
