Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Voter Apathy

Do you or do you not want to be free? Every issue concerning Americans at this time is about freedom: bailouts, buyouts, backroom deals in Washington, out-of-control spending, illegal immigration, drug cartel violence, or government takeover of everything. It is all about lessening the freedoms that Americans enjoy.

Election day will be November 2. These elections will have consequences about the freedoms we enjoy and will affect generations yet to come. The Obama Administration and their cohorts in Congress have been taking freedoms away from Americans for more than a year and half. Poll after poll has shown that there are far more conservatives and independents in the United States that liberals and progressives. We can "take our country back" if we all go to the polls and vote for conservatives.

We must not fall for the stories coming from mainstream media. They are telling us that Americans are angry enough to vote all incumbents out of office. They are trying to lull us into apathy in order to keep us from going to the polls to vote. They want us to think that we don't need to worry about voting because "everyone else" will be there. They want us to believe that we don't need to worry or pay attention because the angry citizens are coming. Freedom-loving Americans must not fall for their siren song.

Gun owners may be one group of Americans that may be feeling safe. There were razor-thin victories in the U.S. Supreme Court in two different cases concerning the Second Amendment. Both District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago were decided in favor of freedom by a margin of one vote. Since Heller was decided two years ago, President Obama has appointed two liberal justices to the Supreme Court. The Right to Keep and Bear Arms is constantly under attack.

I encourage all Americans - not just those who own guns - to join the National Rifle Association (NRA) in order to add more voices and votes for freedom. "From the birth of our nation at Lexington and Concord, right up until today, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is the single most important safeguard and symbol of freedom in the American experience.
"The Right to Keep and Bear Arms is what secures the sovereignty of `We the People.'"

Remember to "Vote Freedom First" on November 2!
