I didn’t want to post about this, because frankly, it is exhausting. I’ve been having this exact same argument for my entire adult life. It is not an exaggeration when I say that I know pretty much exactly every single thing an anti-gun person can say. I’ve heard it over and over, the same old tired stuff, trotted out every single time there is a tragedy on the news that can be milked.

This post is in reference to “The Best of Mark Steyn”, from the Thunder on the Right Blog.
They reprinted, from Front Page Mag, a review of After America: Get Ready for Armageddon by Mark Steyn
I want to read this book. (So many books, so little time.) Steyn is a wonderful writer and speaker, and makes his points sometimes with scathing humor.
The quotes from the book in this review tell me that Mark has articulated what has bubbled about in my mind for sometime about our sad nation. His capacity for analysis and articulation surpasses mine. He has put into understandable words the truly sorry decline of the United States of America.
We are (have been) exceptional, as the only nation founded on an ideal. When the ideal is cast off, the nation recedes. I hope and pray the course can be reversed, but do we have the will to see to it?
Do you believe it’s the right course for America to cast off everything that has made it unique in all history? If so, why? Where is the power in becoming a generic nation?

I have time now.

It always befuddles me. People who have risen to the top, and gained much personally in so many ways, want to diminish or destroy the near-genius system of government which enabled them to do so well. Is there no wisdom in the streets? Well, on reflection, yes. There’s a lot of wisdom in the streets. Where it seems to have disappeared is in the hallowed halls of Washington. We have people ensconced who seem to have no regard for history and no understanding of human nature. I find that these quotes, and there are many others out there, speak very clearly to the present day’s insanity. Read the rest of this entry »

Mr. Obama faces a dilemma on January 20, year the next. Each incoming president recites the following oath, from Article II, Section I of the U.S. Constitution:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” This is actually the main job of the President.
On the radio a few years ago our fresh-faced President-elect said that the United States Constitution is a “fundamentally flawed document”. Cogitate on that for a while: fundamentally flawed. Our Constitution, unique in all recorded history and the living out of which has given the citizens of these United States unprecedented and unequaled freedom, quality of life, and vision – that Constitution – is “fundamentally flawed”.
