The FBI has confirmed that Ammon Bundy and his band of disgruntled ranchers have been brought into federal custody after shots had been fired leading to a fatality.
Whether you’re on the left or the right we should all agree that this is a concerning outcome for all American citizens.
Though most of us will never know the real reason why the band of ranchers occupied the federal building in rural Oregon or the circumstances of their arrests we should all feel less secure that our federal government has become so powerful and in many ways resembles the government our founding fathers fled.
Over the past eight years we have watched our freedoms rapidly erode thanks to politicians who have jockeyed for position and power instead of protecting us from an emboldened and out of control federal bureaucracy. We as citizens must also bear the guilt for playing the role of the proverbial frog in the kettle which died a slow death as the heat was turned up little by little.
I don’t know what it will look like or when it will commence but it’s obvious that America is headed toward a civil war. That is why it is so imperative to elect a president and congress November 8, 2016 which will relinquish the federal governments stranglehold on the American people instead of tightening it, so healing can begin and our nation can move forward in peace and with confidence.
Finally, the American people are well armed and ready to defend the constitution against a tyrannical federal government. According to the FBI’s website there were 63,276,809 background checks to purchase firearms completed in Obama’s first term (2009-2012) alone which is a 91% increase compared with George Bush’s first term. Moreover, already through Obama’s second term (2013-2015) there have been an astonishing 65,203,790 background checks conducted.
Definitely something to think about.
