In case you didn’t catch the earlier three parts on this, here is the link to the video that stirred me so theother day: http://palintv.com
I need say this on the record to tie all of this together. I happen to be a fan of both Glenn Beck and Governor Sarah Palin. This discussion reveals something you will never see in the left or among the Democrats, and that is that we can criticize our own. Don’t worry about Beck and Palin, they’ll get through it, and perhaps wouldn’t have it any other way in being in touch.
Criticizing our own is an edge we have over the statists, some of whom visit this site and lodge their contempt for freedom. It’s the reason I do not delete their comments. Showcase the angry and trigger-happy only too eager to whistle up the state as punishment and you can see who is the hateful; you see not only their loathing of freedom, but their love of the state as a brutal weapon. [See Parts I thru III.]
Friends, with every single posting of hate for second amendment lovers, we see our future under statism.
I’m not going to apologize to Governor Palin and Glenn since I meant every word of it when it comes to lecturing the armed citizenry to remain calm. But make no mistake: Glenn is very cool about his apologies and his willingness to be educated. He devours material. Sarah Palin is a work in process, possibly for President of the United States, and now is the time to interact with her in support; if that means clarifying issues early, then we do it.
For anyone willing to listen to constituents – or viewers – the communication should be… shall we say, frank. I’ve never seen Glenn be hostile with a guest in pressing for answers; he should know that we are not hostile with him.
We as Americans already know very well that even further patience might be the watchword and due process be the tool, if we can make it to November, but that is not entirely our call, which is probably the core of the reaction from the beginning of this. Here’s how.
Let me tell you something about violence: let me tell you what it isn’t: I am asked if the protection of things is working killing for. My standard reply is that I do not answer that question, the robber answers this question instead: is a robbery in my presence worth dying for?
This is because takings of things tend to escalate into unpredictable (or foreseeable) tragedies. When you are unarmed, the potential is out of control, not in the control of the robber certainly. When you are armed, you are in control much better. You are also the person who has the legal advantage on the right side of the issue, and the person with the greatest self-restraint. This lethal force belongs in the hands of the sovereign citizen.
Thus, in this analogy, it is not a matter of violence being or not being the answer, for the question is not to be answered by us, but by the aggressors. Who escalates and who desires to de-escalate it all under one’s rightful authority to do so?
Remember that the position of second amendment groups is one of sovereign authority in our nation of self-rule.
And so is the Vote in November.
