Despite the disgrace in the White House, this is still America. In a wide-ranging Fox News poll of 1,000 registered voters, 52% reported having a gun in the home. When asked, “If the government passed a law to take your guns, would you give up your guns or defy the law and keep your guns?” 65% of them said they would defy the law.
True, there are tens of millions of people who have rotted to the point of voting for Obama even after four years of watching his extreme unsuitability for the office on display. But there are also tens of millions who are still Americans, and who won’t go down quietly once awakened.
Complicating matters further for liberal authoritarians, some of those Americans serve in government. Maricopa County, Arizona’s Joe Arpaio has unsurprisingly joined the growing list of sheriffs who have refused in advance to obey unconstitutional orders from the Debt Star to confiscate our guns.
This is not a democracy, but a constitutional republic. America didn’t die in 2008 or even 2012. Whatever obscenity the media dupes fools into voting for, it won’t die so long as the Constitution is upheld.
