Unfortunately the reality is that we are neither free, nor have the rights we think we have. Sure, we can talk about freedom and have constitutionalist views and speak of such views... but doing so, will get you put on Big Brothers watch list and have you labled as a terrorist. Hell, just openly supporting Ron Paul will get you red listed. 2nd Amendment rights? LMAO! No, my friend all such rights have been stripped from us with the signatures of elected officials who don't even bother to read the bills that they blindly pass daily...the bills that are eroding our liberties at an alarming rate. I have 3 words for anyone who thinks otherwise... THE EXECUTIVE ORDER THE EXECUTIVE ORDER Believe me, I was one of the first ppl allowed into New Orleans after Katrina. I had a pass signed by the brass of the Army that got me passed check points into the city. The President declared a national disaster and POOF! martial law and the suspension of all rights of those citizens that lived there ensued. The military and police, as well as hired guns, ie Blackwater, methodically went from house to house and confiscated all the guns! (This is well documented... just go under google videos and type in 'New Orleans gun grab' and you'll see what I mean.) Now, tell me... what the hell does the 2nd Amendment do for you when that right, and all others can be taken from you when you need them the most? The fact is you and I only have the right to bear arms when our tyrannical government is in the mood for it... but when the **** goes down and you need those guns guess what... you'll no longer have that right. WAKE UP AMERICA !... no, they are def sheep blindly following. They can't see the problem, after all, the Mcdonalds drive thru is still open isn't it? Their government still "takes care of them"... their welfare checks come in on time and all is well. They have no idea that they are SUCKING THE HIND TIT OF A DEAD COW! Okay, I'm done ranting. But let us who can still see not be decieved... our rights are a mere mirage. One day our Katrina will come, and on that day we will either join the heard of sheep or join the ranks of our forefathers who demanded Liberty Or Death!
