Many people have been outraged at the pipeline in North Dakota. Understandably so as their sacred lands, including burial grounds were given to a (I believe) Texas based energy company. One thing folks need to remember is, this force is only allowable with government assistance.
Earlier this week a group of armed militia men were found not guilty by a jury of conspiracy to impede federal workers among other charges while overtaking a federal refuge building. These people held a federally owned building for nearly two weeks, with dozens of rifles and pistols and thousands of rounds of ammo!
Back to North Dakota, most people are peacefully protesting. Yet, they are still getting not only arrested but pepper spayed and even shot with rubber bullets. Again this is the government terrorizing its people for the benefit of a company. Government only knows force. They have been pro-slavery and anti-gay, and people still think the federal government needs more power over its citizens and resources to do so. That is asinine!
The simple difference between these two protests, is that the government has little to fear from the protesters and therefore has all the power in the North Dakota pipeline fiasco. Whereas in the armed take over, there was much more fear of not only a shoot-out, but of possibly having government forces killing a bunch of citizens on national television. Which inherently gave the armed protesters a slight equalizer, along with their weapons.
I am not saying there needs to be violence. There just needs to be someone to step up and say no to the government for not only terrorizing their people but also for allowing the land to be disturbed. The spokesman of the armed takeover was shot and killed while driving through a road block. So there is no surefire way to ensure everyone’s safety, but as is seen time and time again throughout American history; the government does not care about the people. Whether it is smaller physical force such as rubber bullets or violently tackling and arresting folks, to bigger problems like slavery and systemic racism, the government is not there to help you. This is why we have the right to bear arms, for only you and you alone are truly responsible for the safety of yourself and your family!
The third largest killer in America is preventable deaths due to healthcare. At over 1,000 deaths per day, and costing tax payers over $1 trillion a year. And yet, the some continue to push this as some demented form of a “right”. Well is it really that surprising that they continue to fight for and be financially backed by these “big businesses” of killing, while taking away your actual right to defend yourself and your family? An average of 36 people die per day from a gun related incident. And that justifies taking away millions of law abiding citizens rights and freedoms? All while allowing these insane amounts of medical deaths to be completely acceptable. But then again, you are considerably easier to be killed or controlled without weapons and while under seditives. So then maybe the federal government should focus their background checks on doctors and surgeons, instead of guns, if they really care about the rising deaths of our citizens, which I strong suspect they don’t (since dead folks can’t vote/donate).
It is a strange world we live in today. Somehow, someway people have changed. More than likely for the worse. Today, people believe that taking away freedoms or natural rights that are supposed to give liberty to all, will create a better life. Yes, clearly this is about the right to bear arms. But think about it, if people called for a restriction on speech, press, or even allowing quartering soldiers everyone would freak the fuck out. So why is it that when people are trying to take away your right to self preservation, many go right along with it? This kind of talk is truly treasonous due to directly opposing the national laws in the constitution. So why is this not seen as such dispicable ideas? These people need to be seen as the shady traitorous beings that they are, because otherwise if they are allowed to continue on the current path we may as well let islamic extremists govern this nation. Since both are trying to strip you and every other honest and hard working American citizen of their freedoms and liberty.
These same people who are taking away your natural rights as a citizen, are brainwashing you into thinking participation is enough, and you dont really need to try to achieve anything in life. But then make you think you are also entitled to another persons goods or services for free. Soon the individualism and strive to succeed that once made this nation great is dead and gone. Bam now the government controls the health of their citizens (the ones they want they keep), the education of all future citizens to ensure continual control. Plus they control the money while simultaneously perpetually taking that same money back out of the people pockets. Controlling the money also controls the entitlements, which continues to perpetrate poverty and inequality.
What these terrorists are trying to do is egregious and must be stopped! However, those politicians and bank rolling “gun control advocates” are trying to strip you of the exact same rights the terrorists are fighting against as well. Both are against your liberty and want to control you. Whether through a religious caliphate or a corrupt socialized tyrannical government, they both want the same thing, not gun control but absolute control!
Unfortunately more and more people believe the government solves problems. It is time to wake up and see that thr government is the problem and is what’s causing so much tension in our country today. Otherwise, this nation will be broke, fractured, and at war with each other in less than 20 years.
