Seems to me that the Guard has been an integral part and provided most of the troops in ALMOST every major engagement the United States has been in.
It seems to me you have to acknowledge what you said (above) was WRONG, and that this NEW statement above is where you want to draw the NEW line.

What is up with Obama's lust to disarm Americans? Should we fear that He and his handlers know that his marxist agenda driven madness may drive America to a Civil War? We never had such a purposefully divisive President before so we owe it to our families to stay calm but be vigilant.

Oh, please. Betty white could terminate you with a melon baller.

I have found that those who call themselves patriots but hate the government are nuts--gun nuts, militia nuts, etc.

Bows&arrows are of some value as are blackpowder weapons and even slingshots. Most importantly to keep things fair we must have 9mm & .357 handguns, 12ga shotguns and .223 rifles. Plenty of gasoline, empty glassbottles and rags too.

Interesting, we have found that people that love the government but hate the people are usually of the pollitiburo class.

1. He wants your guns
2. He wants a private army
3. he ordered a billion hollow point rounds of ammunition
4. Lock n Load.
5. He knows he can't turn the military against the people so he wants his own army.

Obama did a better job of suckering AAs than he did while libs. He ISN'T one of "them". His father was an alcoholic,communist honest to God Blue Gum Kenyan. His mother was a white lib/socialist with a self hate complex. He was raised by white socialist grandparents,went to mostly white schools. He found his "blackness" after college,but it wasn't the same Black experience as those who were born and raised in the black community. He has used everyone he ever came into contact with. His narcissicm is surpased only by his Machivelian character. Soon those who were fooled by him will curse the day they ever heard his name.

The same could be said of libs paying lip service to the Constitution yet desire in their hearts to see it abandoned. Your socialist Utopia is a figment of madmens' imaginations. We've seen Europe try it for decades only to become failing states. Yet U.S. libs believe it WILL work here because THEY will be the directing its future. How infantile. Its true,liberalism IS a mental disorder.

Everyone always knew that Liberals would eventually let the far, ar left of Hugo Chavez crowd use them to destroy our Country.
responsible American would have voted for Obama's anti america agenda after we knew what he represented but we did.
We are now a majority of unfit parents and common street trash and the our kids are doomed to be nothing but hopeless slaves to Big Brother. Now we must apologize to them and prepare them for less freedom and less opportunity to thrive and prosper.

When did I say I wanted to abandon the constitution? Nor am I a socialist--trust me, I will do nothing for you without getting a check for it. But neither do I believe in unfettered capitalism either.

There is a call among a certain element of academia,lib elites/pols and some topix posters who advocate it. I'm sure some of the 47% wouldn't mind either. For them,there are ditches that need filling..... Unfettered capitalism has another name,more fitting. Corporate greed. Capitalism need be tempered with a strong sense of morality and compassion. THAT quality fell into disfavor over the last few decades. Unscrupulous people with blind ambition rise up the corporate ladder and morality goes out the window. This is as true for Wall Street as Washington. Laws and regulations that are designed to rein in corporate excesses are only an impediance to the honest,the dishonest find loopholes for noncompliance or skirting the edges of the law. The reckoning is coming. It may be only a few voting cycles away before we see a wholesale rebuttal of the welfare state. Its either that or 1929 again. We may not have that long.

There are a lot of right-wingers who want to ignore the constitution, especially the 1st and 14th.

Last few decades? Try the robber barons, hearst, ford, etc. Nothing new at all.

Two side to that mirror. I've seen plenty of examples where libs tried to shut down speech from those who had an opposing opinion from theirs. Now we have an administration looking to violate due process and assasinate Americans they DEEM a threat. What?
