The Christopher Dorner saga exposes the weakness of the law enforcement community. It gives law enforcement something to think about when threatening Second Amendment advocates. The idea that they can descend upon us with flashbangs and SWAT raids day after day, house after house is a farce. Something they should seriously consider before engaging in war on the patriotic and law-abiding people of this nation is this: what if we decide to fight back?
It is easy for the politicians to sit up in their offices and issue dictates down to the police to enforce, but ultimately the battle comes between the people who refuse to obey those laws and the police required to enforce them. It is for this reason that I have always expected the police to be on the front lines of defending the rights of the people. If for no other reason than to avoid being put into the unenviable position of having to defend themselves against the people.
At worst, this is the scenario set up by our founders. It relies on a citizen police force, a citizen military, a citizen legislature to guard against this conflict. But, when the government is allowed to see itself as outside of the citizenry, this conflict is inevitable. The question they need to answer is: Are you a citizen, or an enforcer for the government? Are you a defender of the Constitution or simply a trooper of the regime? There are enough right-thinking military personnel to make that decision have some serious consequences. If law enforcement personnel think that Christopher Dorner is a challenge, they might consider pitting their skills against talented, trained recently discharged sniper.
Lately the president has decided to apply pressure on websites such as this which inspire patriotism, that Obama terms as "radicalization of the population." I will pledge to you that the day this website goes off air, the game is on. The day the author of this website has to submit to a TSA highway checkpoint, the game is on.
Is there anything else to really understand about the situation we are in? The President of the United States considers pro-Constitution, advocates for liberty and our God-given rights as detrimental to the U.S. Government. Isn't that enough for you to see which side you are on?
I know there are a lot of police agencies and sheriff's departments who claim to stand behind the people and the Constitution, but this is a time to go farther than that, to recognize that the abuses already implemented are a step too far. That restrictions on the Second and Fourth Amendments are the actions which have led to this moment in time. From the first restriction on firearms the nation has not gotten more safe, but less safe and every reasonable compromise has led to the further infringement of rights. As the latest decades have proved, any compromise on rights is a loss of those rights.
As in any war, targets are identified. Intelligence is gathered considering those targets and a plan is developed to eliminate those targets. The only question left to be answered is what are those targets going to be? Those who refuse to recognize the rights of the citizens of this nation, who would destroy those rights, who would violate the Constitution and ultimately, through one process or another enslave the citizens, is a justifiable target.
Whether this blog gets shut down or not; whether I am targeted by the government or not is irrelevant, because I do not decide targets. I do not lead a squad or a band of brothers willing to lay down their lives. I do not run anything other than this blog, so the government might do what they want to to me. The fact remains, even after I am shut down, those targets will be identified, intelligence gathered and they will be eliminated.
The question everyone in government willing to enslave the American people should ask themselves is if they are willing to be that target. Does the retirement mean that much to them? I mean, the government of every locality is going to default on those retirement funds. They have to know that, don't they? When the payments stop coming, where do they think they will start the cutbacks? What are the first funds the government will default on? Do they think they will be active, line officers salaries, or pension payments?
