|We fought foreign troops, brought in by our government to control us, on our soil|
In recent discourse on FaceBook, we've discussed Trump's comment alluding to a Second Amendment [i.e., energized by the NRA] response to The Establishment should there be interference with the Presidential Election in November.
We were challenged on that statement by a young PhD discussant who declared such an action to be treasonous, an allusion to a physical threat of assassination, and a misreading of the Second Amendment as the right of the People to take up weapons against their government.
|We're DHS, and we're here to protect you|
We disagree on all counts given the egregious actions of our sitting President, who has usurped the powers of Congress through a variety of means, in addition to his unchallenged Executive Orders, the expansion of the Department of Homeland Security to 240,000 employees and which has become his private army equipped with weapons of war, the implementation of Exercise Jade Helm -- a violation of Posse Comitatus which was, without question, a dry run for the imposition of Martial Law in those states where citizens are heavily armed, the introduction of foreign military forces to patrol our states, the threat of using Homeland Security forces to "supervise" our Presidential elections, and in short, a broad array of abuses of his power.
|Our Continental Congress|
We provide for your perusal a copy of our Forefathers' Declaration of Independence from England, whose colonial representatives abused their authority and imposed the equivalent of martial law, bringing in foreign troops to impose the King's authority on the colonial citizens.
We've highlighted in red those issues which remind us of current conditions which lead us to question the actions of both the Executive and Legislative branches of our government - and grieve at the assassination of Justice Scalia, whose Constitutional interpretations were respected by legal experts both Liberal and Conservative - and whose would have been the prime influence over the Supreme Court in the event of a questionable election.
Consider this a reminder of the history lessons on how our country was formed, and specifically the reasons we sought our independence from England rather than following in Canada's footsteps.
Notably, Common Core has removed all references to both our Revolution and our Civil War so our kids are no longer exposed to this history in our school system.
