"We cannot mistake absolutism for principle."
Obama wants to turn the idea of "absolutism" into a dirty word, a code word for "extremism." He wants you to accept the idea of "principles" as he sees fit to define them, as a code word for his will –his boot heel- that he wishes you live under. It's a way of redefining words, and the liberals are picking up on it. I reject it. So should every American.
We as gun owners and citizens face an ultimatum. We're told that to stop insane killers, we must accept less freedom. We're told that limits on magazine capacity or bans on 100-year-old firearms technology - bans that only affect lawful people - will somehow make us safer. We're told that wanting the same technology that the criminals and our leaders keep for themselves is a form of "absolutism" and that accepting less freedom and protection for ourselves is the moral choice. Think about what that means. Barack Obama is saying that the only way to make children safe is to make lawful citizens less safe and violent criminals more safe. Obama wants you to believe that putting the federal government in the middle of every firearm transaction - except those between criminals - will somehow make us safer. That means forcing law abiding people to pay excessive fees to exercise their rights. Forcing parents to fill out forms to leave a family heirloom to a loved one - standing in line and filling out bureaucratic paperwork, just so a grandfather can give a grandson a Christmas gift. He wants to put every private, personal transaction under the thumb of the federal government, and he wants to keep all those names in a massive federal registry.
There are only two reasons for that federal list of gun owners - to tax them or take them. And to anyone who says that's excessive, Barack Obama says you're an "absolutist." His code for what he really means to call you. A paranoid, bitter clinger.
When Barack Obama says, "we cannot mistake absolutism for principle," what he's saying is that exactness in language and law should be abandoned in favor of his personal will.
I've got news for Barack Obama and anti-gun liberals.
Absolutes do exist.
Words do have specific meaning, in language and in law. It's the basis of all civilization. It's why our laws are written down: So the "letter of the law" carries the force of the law. That's why our Bill of Rights was written into law, to ensure the fundamental freedoms of a minority could never be denied by a majority. Just because you wish words meant something other than what they mean liberals, you don't have the right to define them any way you want. Because when words can mean anything, they mean nothing. When "absolutes" are abandoned for a President’s whim, the U.S. Constitution becomes a blank slate for anyone's graffiti and our rights and freedoms are void. In that moment, the United States of America is destroyed and replaced by a monster. Liberals might think that calling us "absolutists" is a clever way of name calling and bullying without using names. But if that is "absolutist," then we are as "absolutist" as the Founding Fathers and framers of the Constitution ... and we're proud of it!
Remember; any liberal who gives you this label is an enemy of this Constitution and your mortal enemy. Anyone who does not recognize that freedom and the preservation of it is the primary function of government and would trade your inalienable rights for any price is un-American, wrong, and deeply amoral. It should be the greatest compliment to be known as an “absolutist” in the defense of liberty and human rights. And make no mistake, the right to keep and bear arms is a human right and anyone who opposes that right is as anti-human rights as the slave holders of old or the worst dictator.
Now our rights are under a vicious and illegal assault. I encourage all of you to join the National Rifle Association, which has long lead the vanguard in the preservation of our Constitutional Freedoms. Even if you are not a gun owner, I encourage you to join. Remember, words either have meaning or they don’t. If Barack Obama can take away or limit the 2nd Amendment, there is no limit to the rights he can trample. It is up to us to resist, and right now the best line of resistance is to join the NRA. For 25.00 you can fight back. Think about it.
