This phenomenal amount was not raised by corporate contributions or charitable organizations. It came from $25 contributions from 29,000 grass roots Americans who wanted to do something to show their support for the victims of federal aggression – and to show their displeasure with federal violation, for political purposes, of our basic right to make a living.
The American People have demonstrated not only their charity but their rejection of the politically motivated hate speech exuding from the Washington DC cesspool. Americans are becoming more and more aware of the duplicity and corruption prevalent in our nation's capital.
And they are becoming more and more aware of the danger of runaway government, and more and more critical of such federal usurpation of our rights as nationalization of our internet, the deliberate flooding of our country with criminal infiltrators, and the secret promotion of an Article V convention so they can dismantle our Constitution. And as Americans become more and more tuned out to Washington, Washington becomes less and less relevant.
More and more, Washington finds itself preaching to the choir – a choir of politicians and bureaucrats who are so disconnected from mainstream America they think they can sway public opinion with a trumped up hate campaign against a family Pizzeria. What they don't realize is that, while such a campaign might have worked in DC, it will no longer work in Indiana.
The American people are fed up with Washington. And the United States is an armed society. There are over 300 million guns in the hands of America's private citizens, and a record 21 million firearms was added to the civilian arsenal in 2013 alone. While I'm not advocating armed insurrection, I am pointing out that, if Washington were to precipitate it, we would win.
But we have a more civilized way of defeating Washington Fascism. The Constitution of the United States grants to the several sovereign States the right to pursue their own destiny. The Texas Legislature just passed out of committee and placed on the calendar SCR 1, a bill to enforce the Tenth Amendment guaranteed sovereignty of Texas and its right to ignore and exclude any and all federal actions not granted to the federal government by the Constitution of the United States.
As more and more States follow the lead of Texas in pushing back against the federal government in State legislatures and in State initiated court actions, Washington will become ever more marginalized. Eventually, State law by State law, we will take back America. But we'll keep our guns just in case.
