Have you noticed the mood in America is beginning to change a bit. It feels like its beginning to turn against the left? I believe there are two reasons for this shift in the national mood. The first is the gun debate. Finally we’re having a discussion about gun rights and the second amendment and people are starting to dig into the intent of the second amendment. We’re finally openly talking about how the right to bear arms is a safeguard put in place by our founders so that the people had a means to defend themselves against tyranny. Yes that’s right as hard as it for many on the left to swallow, it’s not about hunting. It’s about the individual having the capacity to protect their life, liberty, and property against those who would threaten any of them. And gun rights advocates are winning the argument. Some people are being educated for the very first time about our right to bear arms and why this right is an essential component of a free and secure state. And you know what…people are getting it. Look at gun sales and the NRA’s rise in membership. This is why we’re starting to see more defections from Democrats, calling Obama’s proposal too extreme. This is also why we’re seeing a number of states taking action at the state level to thwart any federal attempt to confiscate or ban guns, The left hates having these types of debates in the open because they simply don’t have the facts or statistics to back their assertions. Many in America view gun rights as a red line issue that should never be crossed. The left knows this. The left would rather use anti-gun propaganda to condition the people and have these discussions behind closed doors like the fiscal cliff negotiations. They would then present us with their solution to curb gun violence and increase gun safety. It would have been flawed and liberty stealing, but easier to sell to the people in the wake of the Newtown shootings. The best way to defeat progressivism is to shine the light of truth on it and you can’t do that when you’re standing on the other side of a closed door.
The second thing that happened this past week was directly felt by most working Americans. Their checks were a little smaller this week because their taxes went up. Wait a minute I thought Obama promised not to raise a single tax on any American making under $250,000. Well not so much. Which makes him a big fat liar. This is what we get when deals are negotiated behind closed doors and no one reads the bills before they vote on them. This is what happens to the middle class when neither party has our best interest in mind. And all this does is reinforce the stigma that people already have about congress; they’re nothing but a bunch of liars and crooks. Trust me Obama will take a hit for this in his approval rating and he’ll take another hit when the Obamacare taxes kick in. Elections have consequences and thanks to the uninformed/misinformed voter we’re all going to be reaping it for the next four years. And now that people on both the left and right are feeling Obama’s broken promises, I predict the road will only get rougher for the anointed one. Now on to the links.

Hmmm…so let me see if I understand this correctly. We the wage earners must adjust our lifestyles to adjust to the increased confiscation of our wealth by the government, but government doesn’t have to change a thing to adjust its spending. Yep sounds about right. Doesn’t get any more in your face than that!
Thanks for all the great articles again and have a safe and lifestyle adjusting week.
Liberty forever, freedom for all!
