Is it Too Late for America?

L. Neil Smith at JPFO - Neil points to Patrick J. Buchanan on the right and Naomi Wolf on the left to make a point that with just a little broader vision, both could be part of the solution of Amerika's government problem. [jpfo]

Which brings us back to Naomi Wolf. As much as I like hearing what she has to say, I notice that not one of the ten points she makes has anything to do with the physical, mechanical means of preserving liberty that Buchanan, despite his many and grievous faults probably understands.

Of course I'm referring here to the unalienable individual, civil, Constitutional, and human right of every man, woman, and responsible child to obtain, own, and carry, openly or concealed, any weapon -- rifle, shotgun, handgun, machinegun, anything -- any time, any place, without asking anyone's permission. Like it or not, it is the free exercise of this right, and no other, that keeps Americans from becoming mud hut peasants like we see on TV, being robbed, raped, and murdered by their outlaw governments and roving bands of killers and thieves.

The left wing media mistakenly believe that the right wing regime is generally friendly toward the private ownership of weapons, but nothing could be further from the truth. Former Attorney General John Ashcroft's first utterance on the Second Amendment should have sent chills up the spine of every individual in America who wishes to stay free. What he said was that, sure 'nuff, the Second Amendment protects an individual right -- one that government has the power to regulate or even suspend -- just like habeas corpus -- whenever it feels like it.


... By its very nature, government perceives individuals as interchangeable and expendable components -- a natural outgrowth of seeing them as masses of voters. You and I -- we parents, brothers, sisters, FRIENDS, wives, husbands, and children -- do not. Only by cutting government back -- like the dangerous, unruly, and thorn-covered shrub it is -- to virtually nothing in the way of money and power, can any of us ever hope to regain the individual freedom that made us a beacon to the rest of the world.

At no time was it ever necessary to send soldiers overseas and shove that idea down folk's throats at bayonet point. They always got it.

And they always will.

The America we all once loved has exactly the chance for survival left that you -- that we -- and that folks like Buchanan and Wolf give it.

What are you prepared to do?
