Supreme Court Lost Now Too

Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories.
-Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, Query 14, 1781

Government is run amok. We are currently in a period here in the United States that Jefferson and James Madison, among others, feared the most. That is a period of an oppressive government bent on taking from some and giving to others.

The Socialist in Chief is already a lost cause. The Republicans aren't far behind him in their spineless bowing to the executive branch. And now the Supreme Court, the last bastion of hope for preserving the United States of America that was founded in 1776, is also lost. And so close to July 4th.

Upholding the Obamacare subsidies is beyond the pale. Decisions like this are the kind of decisions that cause the unity of the union to be called into doubt. States secede. Lines are drawn. Arms are taken up. Welcome to the 2015 edition of 1861.

The words of Thomas Jefferson ring in my ears:

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

Tyranny is here. And our only option might be to resort to the last option we have, especially since there are renewed efforts to to remove our right to keep and bear the arms. The very arms that we may need to take up.

When all hope is lost, the only hope we have is to restore hope ourselves...............
