I’m glad this author noticed this because so did I, except I picked-up something else Chris “Commie” Christie said and didn’t say. Christie claimed he would increase the number of military personnel, especially the Army and Marines, to “better protect the country.”
One problem Christie – you’re a gun control pinko controlled by the Trenton Democrats. Only a fool would rely on 1% of the country to protect the rest of the country. There is a reason, both God-given and historically, as to why the 2nd Amendment (yes, there is a strong reason why it was #2) was written.
You need the citizenry to be armed to first defend their persons and property, and next to defend their community, State, and neighboring States. That is how you truly “protect the country.” Christie and those like him are clueless on this issue, but what do you expect from a cloaked Marxist?
Also, the author corrects Rubio on his use of “democracy” and insists we are a “republic.” I’ll correct the author – we “were” a republic. We lost our republic 150 years ago. Lincoln’s illegal war killed the original republic and the original Constitution. The result is that we are now a democracy – what our Founders didn’t want.
The author makes great points, but is deficient on this very important “dot.”
Now the Article by Tim Brown via Eagle Rising
Out of all the issues in the FOX GOP Debate (Can we even call it a debate? They have one minute for goodness’ sake) this week, there were a couple of Constitutional issues that came up. Rand Paul and Chris Christie got into it over the Fourth Amendment. Other candidates spoke about immigration, which is a Constitutional issue for Congress. They even spoke about spending, which is also Constitutional in limited spending, not balanced budgets. No one pointed to that though. The one thing interestingly missing from the debate was the Second Amendment and the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
So, why was there no talk about the Second Amendment? After all, we know the current Marxist administration is anti-gun ownership and we know that those in the Democrat Party are for some level of gun control. But what about those who were debating and asking you for your vote for the highest office in the land?
For starters, we know Chris Christie is clearly not to be trusted with the rights of the people concerning guns. Christie has signed into law all sorts of infringements upon his people in New Jersey and when called out on it at a town hall meeting earlier this year, he said, “Send me a Republican legislature. And with a Republican legislature you’ll have a governor who will respect, appropriately, the rights of law-abiding citizens to be able to protect ourselves.” At least one woman is dead in his state because of infringement upon the people’s rights and Brian Aitken was imprisoned in New Jersey for having legally purchased guns. Then there was Christie’s appointment of anti-gun Jeffrey Chisea to fill the seat in the US Senate.
Ben Carson has said he believes citizens have gun rights, but then has broken that up when it comes to whether or not you live in the city or the country.
Governor Mike Huckabee is pro-Second Amendment supporter without restrictions.
Senator Rand Paul has been in his words and votes a pro-Second Amendment supporter without restrictions.
Senator Marco Rubio opposed the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty. He opposes restrictions on the right to bear arms and was given a B+ rating by the National Rifle Association. He also claimed that the Second Amendment is the cornerstone of our democracy (It’s a republic Marco).
Senator Ted Cruz has also been a pro-Second Amendment supporter in his voting, except for the claim that arms “such as Machine guns, and weapons especially attractive to criminals, such as short-barreled shotguns, are not” to be considered as protected under the Second Amendment.
Governor Scott Walker opposes restrictions on the right to bear arms, has said the Second Amendment is not optional and desires to see concealed carry recognized under the Second Amendment.
Donald Trump has said he is against gun control, claims Republicans and Democrats are wrong on guns, but he is for an assault weapon ban, wants a waiting period and background checks, none of which are in the Second Amendment nor a part of the federal government’s authority. He recently stated that he also supports the arming of all military personnel and repealing “gun free zones” there.
Governor John Kasich opposes restrictions on the right to bear arms and believes more parenting is better than more gun laws.
Florida Governor Jeb Bush advanced stand-your-ground and concealed carry during his time as governor.
Matthew Speiser also deals with a few other candidates’ positions on the Second Amendment, who were not allowed to participate in the prime time event.
I want to hear from presidential candidates that there is no authority given to government to restrict any arms to its citizens in any fashion. That is the law. On top of that, as I stated on Friday on the Sons of Liberty radio show, I want them to be asked to enumerate the first Ten Amendments to the Constitution and their enumerated powers should they be elected to the White House. After all, that is what they job consists of, knowing their limitations and understanding the people’s freedom that is to be preserved. If they can’t answer those few things, they have no business anywhere near the White House.

Also, as a tribute to the individual (and a touch of reality), you will notice that the editorial pencil marks and underlined passages that were put there by the Marine that took this course. They were intentionally left in the reproduction.
This version of the course was authorized in September of 1984. With the exception the development of Infrared technology, it contains information and techniques that have changed very little since the Vietnam war. These battle proven tactics are as valid today as they were in Quang Nam province in 1968.
They will maintain their validity during the upcoming inevitable event of total economic, political and social collapse. Yours for freedom in our lifetimes. jtl, 419
