Forum Post: Free Fall in Slow Motion

Look how the government is scrambling to create stricter gun controls in the wake of the Sandy Hook Massacre where 26 children and teachers were slaughtered by a lone gunman.

Yet, more than 100 times that number of innocents were slaughtered on September 11, 2001 and the government has not officially investigated the mass murder that occured that day and deaths from toxic exposures that continue over a decade later.

It's not just the 2nd Amendment that is under attack. Why is the US Congress drafting legislation to save immigration reform and stricter gun control instead of legislation to restore habeas corpus; restore Glass Steagall; repeal The Patriot Act; repeal warrantless wiretaps; repeal warrantless search and seizure?

Threshold????

There has been actual, provable tyranny in Michigan for 2 years running now and not a word from Max, you, nor any number of gun nutters.

No, the second amendment was never under attack, but the working class and democracy in general have been.

You missed my original comment and decided to make a whole new thread over it.

Now will you comment on REAL undeniable tyranny?

Tyranny and the 2nd Amendment

http://occupywallst.org/forum/the-2nd-amendment-was-written-to-endorse-tyranny/

The 2nd Amendment didn’t materialize as an inspiration out of thin air; it had a precedent –

English Bill of Rights of 1689

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glorious_revolution#The_Bill_of_Rights

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_of_Rights_1689

In particular –

• maintaining a standing army in peacetime without the consent of Parliament is illegal;

• Protestant subjects "may have arms for their defence suitable to their conditions, and allowed by law";

Since slavery had not been institutionalized in England at this time this was not an issue about legally suppressing a rebellion for something that didn’t exist .

Tyranny had a stronger connotation during the English Civil War –

The English Civil War

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_civil_war

The most recent event that comes closest to it is the 9-11 Terror Attacks and the collapse of the WTC buildings

911 Education

The People petitioned the government for a new 9-11 investigation.

What happened?

Hey, this is why the ART 5 movement is growing. If you haven't learned about the proposals for preparatory amendment you're probably afraid of it, which is what the elite want. But no, it is not something to be afraid of, that is f'nnnn silly.

Any American capable of using information can confirm the veracity of your post. The problem is media won't share the information. They've violated the public trust and are a threat to our futures IF they are allowed to continue.

That is an excellent point.

The nation is divided by the information sources the people have or accept. This is why I love the ART 5 movement with its preparatory amendment. SImply ending the abridging of free speech can inspire a proper lawful and peaceful revolution.

Sorry, I can't take anyone seriously who will ask Alex Jones his point of view. All credibility is lost at that point.

Apparently the go with the "emotional flow" of the people instead of the "rational flow". Focusing on peoples emotions gets them votes whereas being practical or rational doesn't.

Why would you think them to help remove the things they created of course that would for them nearly the only possibility of saving themselves. War has been declared on the "fed" and things will be different that is all there is.
