NOTE: Please refrain from outright discussion of politics; this isn't the sub-forum for it. This topic is posted as a simple statement of upholding liberty, something sadly lacking in nearly everyone we hire these days. Given the threats to basic liberties we in the United States have, most particularly the cherished right to be armed, I recall many of the statements made in a speech nearly 60 years ago. As much for the protection of the RKBA as well as all other basic liberties we, as a free people, demand and expect each day. Offered up to illustrate how far we've slid down the path warned of in this speech. If we're not careful, we're going to get just the sort of community we "deserve" ... if we allow it. There is good reason why the tyrannical fear an educated, heavily-armed, determined People. Quoted in part: Spoken by Barry Goldwater, at the '64 RNC.
