    Give up the Constitution? We already mostly ignore it, Obama, Pelosi and Reid hold it in utter contempt. It has served us well since our founding, it is messy at times, it is inconvenient to those that would dictate our nation, to nanny staters. But, they already manage to ignore it and violate it anyway.

    If we just abandon it, it means tyranny, no more rule of Law. If we did the right thing and held a Constitutional Convention to rewrite it, what horrible thing would result, considering where we are it would be a wholly socialist document with no human rights and Christianity being a criminal offense, as virtually none of our leaders are really Christian.

    I fear that we are on a course to overthrow our Constitution and rule by dictate, being a new Soviet Union and just as tyrannical. It is hard to believe anyone would suggest doing away with the Constitution.

    What should we do? The people and only the people must rise up and punish anyone in government that does not assiduously adhere to every word, exactly as written or amended. We won’t, because America is imploding, self destructing.

    Not to sure about the election I smell voter fraud all over it . in the states that mattered we have seen it in droves,. but no one is stepping up to the plate . Have we ever had a presidential recount? I have never heard of one but it seems to me it might be a good time to have the first one. Did the mighty Romney strike out or was the polling places loaded.

    • Neiman

      If we had a recount, if it showed Obama lost – no one will believe it, he is a Beguiler, a man that despite the way he is destroying America was able to fool people again and so it would do no good. Even if he was proven beyond all shadow of doubt to be an alien (The jury is out), a Muslim (he is), a child rapist (he is not), a homosexual (he is) and a member of the Communist Party – he will be able to get enough liberal fools to defend him that it would make no difference.

      I agree with you, it is just that I am seeing the spirit of antichrist taking over America and the world and I do not believe anything will ever turn it around. Pessimistic? No, in Christ Jesus I am very optimistic that He ha saved me and will Judge the whole earth soon.

        It is written and it will happen, His plan will take place although no one knows the day or the hour but we can tell it is close . What a day that will be when God takes full control of all things . and every wrong is righted. I am a sinner and I used to sin all I wanted but now that I know My Lord I try to sin less. Yes it is time to look up for our redemption is at hand . Take joy and be glad it is coming to an end .

        • Neiman

          Great post. I am a sinner too, saved by grace. Still trip up far to often.

          If you go here, on article:, and scroll down to: “Is There any Hope for America? Part One.” It talks about the futility of Christians trying to save America.

    This guy in Vermont has the right idea, IMO..

    If you don’t want to own fire arms to defend your state, country, or family, you need to pay a permit fee for it.180 degree oposite of the the way the left looks at gun owners having to pay for their Constitutional rights to own them..Makes more sense to me.

    Gun regulation solution

    Vermont State Rep. Fred Maslack has read the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as well as Vermont ‘s own Constitution very carefully, and his strict interpretation of these documents is popping some eyeballs in New England and elsewhere.

    Maslack recently proposed a bill to register “non-gun-owners” and require them to pay a $500 fee to the state. Thus Vermont would become the first state to Require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun. Maslack read the “militia” phrase of the Second Amendment as not only the right of the individual citizen to bear arms, but as ‘a clear mandate to do so’. He believes that universal gun ownership was advocated by the Framers of the Constitution as an antidote to a “monopoly of force” by the government as well as criminals. Vermont’s constitution states explicitly that “the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the State” and those persons who are “conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms” shall be required to “pay such equivalent.” Clearly, says Maslack, Vermonters have a constitutional obligation to arm themselves, so that they are capable of responding to “any situation that may arise.”

    Under the bill, adults who choose not to own a firearm would be required to register their name, address, Social Security Number, and driver’s license number with the state. “There is a legitimate government interest in knowing who is not prepared to defend the state should they be asked to do so,” Maslack says.

    Vermont already boasts a high rate of gun ownership along with the least restrictive laws of any state….it’s currently the only state that allows a citizen to carry a concealed firearm without a permit. This combination of plenty of guns and few laws regulating them has resulted in a crime rate that is the third lowest in the nation.

    This makes sense! There is no reason why gun owners should have to pay taxes to support police protection for people not wanting to own guns. Let them contribute their fair share and pay their own way. Sounds reasonable to me! Non-gun owners require more police to protect them and this fee should go to paying for their defense!

    Truth leftist revisionism hides as they spread falsehoods.

    The photo is inscribed by Himmler:
    “To his eminence the Grand Mufti, 4 VII 1943, in remembrance H Himmler”
    Seiner Eminenz dem Grossmufti 4 VII 1943
    [July 4, 1943] zur erinnerung H Himmler

    In the age of Obama, it is OK for his allies to salute and laud Hitler.
    That’s where we are ….. the sick part is that the Amerian people are painfully
    unaware of it as the enemedia scrubs, whitewashes and polishes Obama’s knob.

    The Mufti al-Husseini was Hitler’s ally.
    The Mufti, in the summer of 1944, approached Germany, Roumania, Bulgaria,
    and Hungary to speed the extermination of the Jews by sending them to
    Poland where the Nazi death chambers were located.
    The Mufti successfully demanded that 400,000 Jews who were about to be
    deported to the Holy Land instead be sent to their deaths.

    That’s not merely a collaborator,
    that’s a partner with great influence and power

    Why is the Soreto administration arming all of the middle east?
    Bengazi was just the tip of the ice berg.

    Why are U.S.-made anti aircraft and anti tank missiles being sent to Gaza for Hamas?

    I thought Barack Hussien Obama was only sending US-made weapons (coordinated by slain Ambassador Chris Stevens) from Libya to Syrian jihadist rebels via Turkey? Perhaps he decided to divert some of the weapons to the terrorists in Gaza, as well.
