To Barack Obama: Americans obey laws, never the whims of men

Having been taught by my parents and my faith never to pray for anything bad, or for anything bad to happen to another person, I have for more than 60 years obeyed that lesson. But I do admit that for the past few years I have stopped each morning before leaving for work to check GOOGLE News with a feeling of what President Obama once called “hope,” a hope that something seemingly beyond reach but very beneficial for America might have happened overnight. Alas, over the course of those years GOOGLE News has never reported what would be most wonderful news for America, that Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Valerie Jarrett, Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder were no longer available to continue their intentional destruction of the United States. I sometimes think that a regular prayer from me toward that end might have helped produce that most glorious issue, but lessons learned young die hard and that one is till strong in me.

So, if happenstance and great good luck are not going to deliver America from the clutches of the above-mentioned six-headed plague, Americans —like their ancestors — will have to do it themselves, by the ballot box if possible but, in the last resort, by whatever means suffice. A first action really ought to be for every family in America not resident on one of the Democrat’s plantations for the mindless, lazy, theoretical, illegal, and Ivy-League educated to purchase weapons and ammunition with which to defend themselves, their families, and their property against the coming felonious wave of unwanted, unneeded, and crime-inclined migrants that Obama and his plague-on-America gang are motivating to cross the southern border. The media is reporting that more than 100,000 American citizens have been killed by the Democrats’ pet illegals, and the more of that kind of human scum that enters the country, the more Americans will be killed. So get yourselves armed and pray that you do not have to shoot at both the illegals attacking you and the body-armored gunmen that the national government probably will send to protect the illegals who are intent on doing you harm.

The next step is in the lap of the governors. I have never understood why there are no state militias under the governors’ sole control — unless called into national service to defend against a foreign enemy — as mandated by the Bill of Right’s 2nd Amendment. I look and look and look but cannot find the amendment that negated that part of the 2nd Amendment, and that is because there is none. Over the years, the executive and legislative branches of the national government have cooperated to simply legislate away that constitutional right from the American people and their state governments in order to monopolize the tools of force and use them to enforce laws — and even executive orders — that Americans oppose and which hurt their home states. I have heard several legal experts “explain” what they called the “perfectly constitutional and legal process” by which the state militias and part of the 2nd Amendment were annihilated. Some pretty fancy talk for sure, but it was just deceitful, Obama-like lawyer prattle.

The U.S. Constitution cannot be altered except by the successful completion of the prescribed process for amending the original document. This was not done, and so all the legislation passed in the past century to destroy state militias is simply illegal, it provides no legal basis for preventing the governors from reestablishing the state militias; indeed, the unamended 2nd Amendment makes it their duty to do so. Unconstitutional legislation, no matter how voluminous and bipartisan, cannot negate a constitutional right.

The governors of at least the southern tier of U.S. states ought to soon meet and initiate efforts to recreate, train, and arm state militias that will be under their control. The governors can then use that force to protect their citizens from the felonious influx Obama is fueling, as well as to protect the viability of their states’ economies, health services, educational systems, and local law-enforcement capabilities. This is serious business, however, and those state militias might at some point have to face and fight the above-mentioned gunmen sent by the national government to protect the illegals and see to it that they are permitted to make a wreck out of any state they choose to focus on.

As always, force must ever be a citizen’s last resort when dealing with the national government, but Obama’s brazen disregard for both the Constitution and the welfare of working, and especially rural Americans; his quite obvious goal of making the United States into a Third World country; and his eagerness to wage war when the mood strikes him, makes a willingness on his part to ruthlessly oppress American citizens in favor of his illegals is something to be expected. I suppose the best Americans can do is reflect on and perhaps mimic the actions of an American militia captain named John Parker, a man who found himself at the head of his unit on Lexington green more than two hundred years ago. Standing face-to-face against the forces of a central government that was oppressing Americans and trying to disarm them, that captain forbid his men from firing first, but he added that “if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”

All told, Americans are today seeing what no Americans before them have seen — a president-turned-tyrant acting unconstituitionally to impose his ideology and will on the citizenry, thereby illegally punishing them economically and socially, undermining the effectiveness of their state and local law-and-order regimes, making their elections irrelevant, weakening the bonds of the Union, and alienating whatever sentiments of affection Americans may still retain for their national government. We shall see in the next few years whether President Obama’s diktat on immigration turns out to be a last straw in what Mr. Jefferson once described as “a long train of abuses and usurpations” that required Americans to take up arms and “throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” We should all pray that such is not the case, but if it so turns out, it will be Mr. Obama who, quite knowingly and deliberately, broke the camel’s back and thereby started a fire that will grow hot and bloody enough to consume the plague that he and his colleagues injected into the nation.
