The NRA, National Rifle Association, is always playing those patriotic strings to their supporters. After the Valentine’s Day Massacre, outrage has begun to bubble regarding how easy it is for any mentally ill person to get a gun. Accordingly, the NRA warns gun owners that the government is coming for their guns. Republicans and the NRA have brainwashed their supporters into thinking, that once their guns are confiscated so too is their liberty and their country.
Republicans have some real stupid beliefs. In fact, their beliefs are so stupid, they can’t defend them. Instead, republicans twist the constitution and suddenly, our founding fathers support these conservative views. Kind of hard to argue with that. Our country, after all, is the greatest in the world because of that document. If that document defends your argument, I reckon you won’t be losing many arguments.
But, our constitution was not perfect, and our Founding Fathers knew that. If we were not allowed to change anything in the constitution, than black people and women wouldn’t vote. We changed those amendments no problem, because there wen’t any companies profiting. Once we ban guns, the NRA is bankrupt. They have a lot of monetary incentives to continue promulgating our right to bear arms.
As the constitution says, “…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
With that bold stipulation, zealot gun enthusiasts consider their fight for guns very patriotic. They aren’t simply fighting to carry their guns, they are fighting to defend the wishes of our founding fathers. The day after the senseless Parkland high-school shooting, someone spray painted a billboard in Kentucky, to ‘kill the NRA’. In response, the NRA posted,
Here’s an image from Kentucky, this morning. To all American gun owners, this is a wakeup call. They’re coming after us. Like and share to spread the word. Newsweek
Similarly, republicans trick their minions into supporting lower taxes. Taxes are bad, they tell us. Taxes was what caused us to seek our independance from England!
According to republicans, taxes are shackles that bind our liberty. We aren’t genuinely free if we are paying high taxes. Look at the Tea Party political organization. No single event in our history signifies American colonial defiance more than the Boston Tea Party, in which Sam Adams and the Sons of Liberty boarded three docked British boats and threw barrels of tea overboard. When the Tea Party goes on a march, they are all dressed in their colonial outfits.
But the Tea Party was actually formed in the early nineties, by none other than Big Oil, Big Tobacco and the Koch brothers, Time. Essentially, these fools are out in the cold picketing for the Koch brothers to spend less money on their sanitation and police-force and their child’s education. Not the sharpest knives in the drawer.
