Mr. Keyes has a right to be upset about the situation of today. However, he is premature and panicky when he predicts our nation is verging on collapse.

If Mr. Keys was talking about the Republican Party and its host of wimps, careerists, corrupt politicians, and tendency to ignore the wishes of We the People, he is dead on! Even as I write this comment, many old guard Repubs in the US Senate are climbing in bed with the Marxist Obama and the socialist Democrats to restrict our constitutional rights to keep and bear arms. Remember, the Second Amendment was included in the Bill of Rights to keep government in check. Without it, the politicians in power would seek means to increase their power over We the People and perpetuate themselves in office for life.

These self-serving Republicans office holders and their Democrat colleagues are facing removal from office over the next several years as they face re-election. We the People have had enough of their chicanery and corruption and will give them the boot as they seek to be returned to office. The conservative and patriotic electorate will rise in anger, beginning in the 2014 elections, and most of these would-be tyrants will be removed.

Otherwise, Alan Keyes is correct: our republic will fall.
