Without shame I find myself weeping as I once again watch the film, “We Were Soldiers.” The loss of life and horror of the battlefield, I am sure, falls short in the movie as I sit comfortably on the sideline and watch. However, I find that I am profoundly affected by the power of this film. I think of the sacrifice of life on battlefields that Americans have participated in. I do not know whether or not all of these wars were just but I am confident that our American fighting soldiers have answered the call over and over with true allegiance to an ideal, to the hope of mankind throughout history, that being the preservation of Liberty.
I am just as certain that we have politicians who would sell their soul for money and power. I am even more certain that this same type of politician would sell our soldiers’ and uniformed law enforcement officers’ blood for that same power. It is my opinion that unconstitutional and unjust laws are an assault of the most reprehensible type on the People of these United States. They carry the cloak and color of legality while they shred our Declaration of Independence and our U.S. Constitution.
I would like to make it perfectly clear that, I, Dan A. Mefford, D.C., will not comply with what I believe, based on my own study and research and the plain language of the our United States Constitution, to be an unconstitutional or unjust law.
I am feeling a level of anxiety combined with a helpless and righteous anger against our governments both state and federal, which are constantly ramping up the invasion of privacy, denying self-protection rights, all in the name of the War on Drugs, and now the War on Terror and the various other “wars” by whatever name. These Enemies of Liberty want to place me and my fellow citizens under a microscope while turning a blind eye to whoever comes across our Southern border. The truth is you haven’t seen anything yet.
Please don’t tell me it is all the Democrats. The Patriot Act is a product of the Republicans. You should read it sometime. I will say again as I have said in the past, the top honchos of either party, who like to pull the strings behind the scenes, are not to be trusted. They are the closest to the seat of power, and the power drug is one of the most potent and addictive “substances” known to man.
I would hope that a great host of Citizens, cops, judges and elected officials would take a stand against this soft tyranny that is sweeping this country, in name peace and safety. Under the Republicans the speed at which we will go off the cliff will be half as fast as with the democrats. The problem with that is they are still going to take us off the cliff and straight into tyranny. What we need is a course change. We need to turn back from the cliff.
Just because it is a law does not make it right. At one time the law allowed slavery. At one time the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) said, in essence, that black people were inferior and not capable of ruling themselves. There are a substantial number of instances where SCOTUS has reversed itself. The misery that they have caused before justice was finally achieved can only be imagined by most of us.
What world will you pass to your children? What example will you pass to your children? We hold and shape the present for our children. What will your kids say about you? I think I will skip the Super Bowl and go watch American Sniper. I am confident that I will finally be able to get a seat.
