    Default A Glimpse Into The Future..... Maybe?

    Found this posted on another forum. I found it a very interesting read. I believe it's very close to what I envision happening in regards to gun control and the potential conversion to a socialist America. This essay is a little long but, I think, pretty interesting. It's written by former Navy Seal and author Matt Bracken;

    Bracken: Dear Mr. Security Agent | Western Rifle Shooters Association

    Excellent read. I am of an age where I'll likely be dead before the red line is crossed. (maybe). And I don't have children. I am certainly concerned though about everyone elses children and grandchildren and the American way of life we have all enjoyed since birth and that many of our predecessors also enjoyed at least since the civil war, and many earlier than that thanks to our founding fathers foresight.

    I am also concerned beyond the threat from within, with the threat from outside. Namely China. China is on the rise and history shows that imperialism is common with rising powers. With China's large population and current destruction of its own natural resources, along with its economic clout, predicted food shortages in future years, that is a concern.

    Default Nothing new

    We have been warned about this for at least 50 years by those who actually took the time to read and study history and write it in stories to explain in simple terms what is to become of us. Our forefathers wrote in the constituition and bill of rights almost 250 years ago why we must take a stand. If more clues need to be presented i'm sorry, but those who will not listen or learn will never get it. It is up to the few who are willing, to make things right in order to allow this country to remain free despite those who are unaware. It must also be understood that those who are unaware will be nothing more than collateral damage.
    The government's monetary role is to maintain the integrity of the monetary unit, not participate in fraud

    I have always thought it is interesting that a number of states, made up of people, no different than the dimbulbs saying that corporations are not people, and these people/states took up arms and waged war against the United States resulting in the death of hundreds of thousands, and millions of casulaties, and not a single person in the U.S. government ever even remotely considered a ban on guns.

    Now they did it right or wrong because they believed the government had over stepped its power. How do you strike down the 2nd amendment when the very reason it was written was to restrain the government from over stepping its power.

    So the south was wrong in its beliefs on human rights, duh. But if the 2nd amendment is ignored, whats to stop the government from over seppping its power and violating the human rights of its citizens? The only thing that makes the U.S. any different than any other country in the world, including WWII Germany, Italy, post war USSR, Cuba etc is the constitution. Ignore or do away with it, and we are toast.

    While I agree with what you say, I would add that many people are just awakening to the threat our own Government poses to us. I've said it before, 10 years ago I would have called everyone of you guy's tin foil hat, conspiracy theorists, wackos. Now, I'm proudly one of you. Many people have been ringing this bell for some time, as you say. But now, I think people are starting to actually see what others have been warning them about. I'm amazed how much has changed in just the last 5 years. The purpose for sharing articles like this one is to give those people looking for answers an opinion other than MSM. We will need all the help we can get if we stand any chance in reclaiming an America that even remotely resembles anything we all new growing up. Sharing information is one way of fighting back. You never know who might see an article like this, and others shared here, and who it might influence.

    I agree 100%. Although China owns us financially right now, at some point they may want (need) territory and resources as well. I see them and NK supplying our terrorist enemies with WMD's at some point and hoping that they use it against us and then stepping in after when our attention is focused away. Probably not in my lifetime but future generations may have to deal with this scenario.

    I honestly see (maybe even hope) OUR Country splits into 2 separate countries at some point in the future. I say let the libbys have their half and the conservatives have their half and both sides can make a go of it. Once you are in your side though, there is no switching. You made the choice, you own it and live with it. I am pretty sure I know which side will succeed and which side will become a 3rd world nation.
