Greene County BOS Ignores “We The People”

The problem with our so-called representatives is that they think that they are so much smarter than the people they are supposed to represent. For some reason once these people get elected to a position, they seem to believe that their IQ is automatically increased. What really happens is that in many cases it is their common sense that changes, their narcissistic tendencies push out whatever common sense they had and takes over all their decision making. There is much truth in the statement that power corrupts, we see it continuously in our local, state and federal government.

Last night at the Greene County Board of Supervisors meeting several hundred local citizens showed up to express their support for a 2nd Amendment sanctuary resolution. Our county sheriff was there to lend his support to our right to bear arms as guaranteed by the U.S. and Virginia Constitutions.  Of course, as expected our local board ignored the wishes of the citizens. The gathering of close to 300 people had little to no effect on our representatives. One of them even had the audacity to claim that not all these people were from Greene, a manufactured excuse for ignoring the wishes of the crowd.

I am so tired of seeing these people sitting behind the dais with their smug looks acting like they are dealing with a bunch of spoiled children. Our supervisors do not want to represent the people, this group of narcissists who think that they are so much wiser than the people they represent, once again chose to ignore those who voted them into office.

I must remind all citizens to be proactive in all areas of government; local, state and federal if they want to stop the abuse of power. We are all busy but unless we take time out of our hectic schedules, we will find that control of our lives will be given to those who care more about power than “we the people”. Freedom is precious and once lost it will be very difficult to regain.

Virginia On The Precipice

I believe we are facing a very challenging time in our Commonwealth. Will it be as bad as we expect during the next legislative session? Probably not. However, I do believe that this will be the beginning of a very slippery slope. I have heard people say that maybe it’s time to move to a state that will respect our Constitutional rights, I have said this myself. That is wrong for the simple fact that we cannot surrender here in Virginia because if we retreat from here eventually there will be no place left to run.

About 29% of the population of Virginia own guns, we need to tap into this group. With a population of 8.5 million we are looking at about 2.4 million gun owners in our Commonwealth, that is significant. If we could get 1/3 of this group to become somewhat involved, we would be looking at a lobbying group of over 800 thousand people.

What is needed to fight these far-left politicians in Richmond is a strong grassroots organization composed of not only 2nd Amendment supporters but those people who do not want their other rights taken away from them. We need to get the word out about how the proposed red flag laws attack our 2nd ,4th, 5th and 6th Amendment rights. If they can use these types of laws to confiscate guns, then nothing is safe from state. If these four amendments can be attacked how long before our 1st Amendment rights are obliterated as well?

Granted we are fighting against a well-funded leftist movement but remember several hundred years ago a rag tag group of patriots were able to defeat the most powerful country on the planet. This war against our freedoms can be won but it will not be easy.
