Freedoms are in danger

It does not require in-depth observation to conclude that it’s business as usual in Washington.

Iran takes aggressive action on a U.S. aircraft, and this information is kept from the taxpayers (the drone’s mission may have been classified, but extremists shooting at it are not).

And the 2nd Amendment (which has been upheld by the Supreme Court as an individual right) is under attack yet again, this time in the form of a clandestine treaty involving the United Nations to limit arms sales. This agreement has dirty fingers reaching right down to small-arms sales to law-abiding citizens.

I submit that those who don’t agree with the freedoms that were supposed to be guaranteed to us in the Constitution and Bill of Rights as originally drafted by our Founding Fathers may expatriate themselves and leave this great nation. Or perhaps we should just allow the democratic machine seeking dominance over Americans to continue it’s crusade and dictate what we will do for a livelihood and how much we can earn for our labors.

Please, don’t forget to thank a veteran for defending your right to elect officials who are taking away your rights.
