”Padlock the door and board the windows Put the people in the street “It’s just my job,” he says “I’m sorry.” And draws a check, goes home to eat But at night he tells his woman “I know I hide behind the laws.” She says, “You’re only taking orders.” That’s how every empire falls.” John Prine: That’s How Every Empire Falls”
January 1st, 2020 the beginning of a new decade and what could be a very disturbing spring in the Commonwealth of Virginia. If Ralph Northam and his Democrat led majority continue on the road to gun confiscation and depending on how they proceed with enforcement this new decade could certainly bring a new meaning to the “roaring 20’s”. Without a doubt 2nd Amendment supporters will not go out with a whimper but with a roar.
The Virginia Legislature as well as the governorship and state attorney general’s positions are now controlled by outside interests led by Bloomberg and Soros. Both have funded organizations that brought in millions of dollars into this past years election in order to turn the control of the legislature over to the left. These gentlemen’s agenda is to turn the state and country toward socialism and government control. They are attempting to do this under the guise of making our society safer through gun control, healthier through socialized medicine and equality for all by promoting liberal justices and district attorneys. It is the elite that believe that the average citizen is incapable of surviving without the help of their leadership. This quote from C.S. Lewis states it best: “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” This however begs to question whether these leaders are doing this for the good of the people or just for the accumulation of more power? No matter what the motive the people still suffer.
Freedom loving Virginians must draw the line this spring and let Richmond know that they have over stepped. We must show the Governor and his cronies that it is the people of this Commonwealth who will determine their future and not the Bloomberg’s and Soros’s of the world. In reality this is not the roaring twenties returning but the 1770’s when the likes of Patrick Henry, Jefferson, Madison, Mason and Washington took a stance against injustice and tyranny. Once again Virginians find themselves at the forefront of the battle against tyrants. We must show the rest of the country that freedom is precious. As Benjamin Franklin once said: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
