The next leader of the United States will be the person who will look the American people in the eye and say:
"We are a Judeo-Christian nation. We pray to one G_d. Our standards and our presence on this earth are based on the ethics, morals and righteousness found in the 10 Commandments as handed directly to Moses.
"Those who pray to Allah have proclaimed their goal is our forced conversion to Islam or death. They have professed themselves with direct statements and by the failure of their brothers-in-jihad to refute such affirmations. They have declared war on us and have acted upon that declaration.
"Now is time for us - American Jews, Christians, whites, blacks and browns alike - to expel this enemy from within our borders and remove all evidence of their mosques. Further, criminal or terrorist attacks upon any Christian, Jewish or Judeo-Christian individual or nation by a member of an enemy state will bring about nuclear retaliation to one or more of these adversarial harbors."
Taking such a forceful and strong stand might bring about the "holy war" these jihadist are spoiling for. Not following such a forceful and strong stand will surely cause the peace-loving America we know to cease to exist. Therefore, we must take a proactive position and disengage in all limited wars on foreign soil. To do otherwise only allows these criminal combatants more time to build their weapons of mass destruction and delivery devices.
All right, already, I know what you're thinking . . . isn't this the same as what Hitler tried to do to the Jews and what the KKK's goal was for blacks? Not even in the same ballpark. Blacks and Jews have never been a threat to America (or any other nation). They are small minorities with no world domination agenda. Whereas Muslims are not a minority and their extremist/killers cannot be separated out because of Muslims' universal refusal to disavow themselves (separate themselves out) from their warring fellows in jihad. As to legal justifcation to this apparent violation of a select group's constitutional rights? I'm only using the same logic the liberals have been propagating since FDR, to wit:
Since the Supreme Court has defined and justified the General Welfare clause (Art I Sect 8) as the giving of our money to victims of foreign catastrophic events - how can they refuse the same logic by removing a bona fide threat from our shores? Does that not fall under the same General Welfare of the country? In other words, what could be more beneficial to the General Welfare of America than to alleviate a bona fide worry and the inherent danger of allowing our enemy to live amongst us? Surely the General Welfare of all Judeo-Christian Americans would be significantly better if this sworn enemy were removed from our neighborhoods.
In addition, Article I, Section 8 states: "Congress shall have the power to . . . repel invasions." Muslim infiltration via our open-immigration policies and/or illegal entry is, nonetheless, an invasion. Congress must do its duty and repel the foray of this dedicated group of killers, including their supporters, and thus "provide for the common defense" of this Judeo-Christian nation.
Well, I can't respond to your survey because I don't have an answer for the top two questions. I find both of them irrelevant. Anyway, I thought you might be interested in my narrative answer. :)
JPFO ALERT: CAN THE SECOND AMENDMENT AND ISLAM CO-EXIST?
The raiders, murderers, invaders, conquers and despots of this world have come from every race, creed and religion since the dawn of time. The Muslims have not even been particularly successful at it outside their own lands. They are generally far too busy fighting and killing each other. Many millions of innocent people have been murdered in the name of religion all over the world, and the "Christians" have been no slouches at it themselves.
One of the greatest fallacies of this entire issue is the idea that either the problem or the solution is national or political, rather than individual. Each person is responsible for his/her own life and safety, and for that of those who are dependent on them. Through voluntary cooperation and association, they can work together for mutual goals and defense. They don't need to agree with everyone in the country, the county or even the neighborhood to do so.
As with all problems and solutions, it must begin and end with individual responsibility and action. If we don't prevent the usurpation of our individual lives and souls, regardless of who attacks us, it won't matter how large the groups are or what they call themselves.
A quick PS to what Mama Liberty and a few other good hearted but naively utopian idealists said. She wrote:
"As with all problems and solutions, it must begin and end with individual responsibility and action. If we don't prevent the usurpation of our individual lives and souls, regardless of who attacks us, it won't matter how large the groups are or what they call themselves."
I would suggest telling that to the survivors of Mumbai. They will doubtless be comforted by knowing that their loved ones who were mutilated ( esp. the Jews) shot to death and mocked as they bled out, all because they were non-muslims, would have really gotten along well with the muslims, if only they had taken responsibility for themselves.
I am sorry that my own Great Uncle did not have a pithy comment to share, like that one, when he and others were liberating Jews from the Death Camps in WWII. They would surely have been inspired!
The Second Amendment declares that the militias are necessary to secure the freedom of the free state, which means each individual sovereign state. Citizens need to have their right to keep and bear arms at all times so that they can exercise their civic duty to protect freedom at all times.
The US Army, on the other hand, can only legally be funded by congress for two years. The standing army should devolve into the militias, which could also perform police duties. This will properly empower local governments to be responsible for their own safety and make it very difficult for the feds to send troops overseas.
Switzerland was an inspiration for the founders, and is still for us today. Most homes have full automatic weapons and the public is well trained in marksmanship. There is a shooting range for every 2,000 people. Terrorists like the 9/11 hijackers would not be a problem with an armed and trained public. Neither would we suffer from shootings on campuses.
I lived in Indonesia from 1990 to 1997. I had Muslim neighbors, students and associates. I visited Islamic boarding schools of Nahdlatul Ulama. There are a minority of Muslims who are very incompatible with our society. The vast majority of Muslims want peace and prosperity more than they want to emulate Mohammed's life. Families cannot prosper with jihad, nor can they prosper through your call to war against Muslims. The descendants of jihadists and your descendants will eventually unite the children of Abraham by intermarrying.
Your call to arms against Muslims is destructive to garnering support for restoring the Second Amendment, which is not just the RKBA. It is the right to form local militias that will displace the US Army. Please refrain from offending those of us who share you gun views, but do not share your need to purge our country of Muslims.
I am only now noting the time as I write this, so for those of you to whom it will apply, allow me to say Shabbat Shalom.
Although I did take the poll and offer a few words, I must say that I am deeply troubled by some of the comments I read, which would indicate that even people who read and (hopefully! ) support the JPFO, have been so brainwashed by the recent years of PC indoctrination, that they are unable to think rationally! Several use the logic, well, we have ALL done bad things in our cultures / religions, etc. More than one say, why if we chased them out by force, we would be just as bad as them! Still another offers that making the muslims leave and take their pervert prophet with them would be "unAmerican".
Madness has taken hold of them!! They have come to believe in the false America and the false Constitution shown to them for years by the very people and cultures who wish our destruction! Can anyone with a functional brain, say that there is ANY other religion in the world today, anywhere, which subjugates women, encourages beating or mutilating them for amusement or punishment, uses public stonings, beheadings, castrations, amputations, and floggings? Is there any other group in this world who hang homosexuals from lamp posts or industrial cranes in the town squares? And film them in their death throes? Anyone??
No one with any semblance of sanity can compare even the worst examples of our Jewish or Christian forebears' actions against others... that is insanity personified. No one would doubt or deny that all cultures have done bad things ** in the past**, I agree... BUT - but only ONE continues from its demonic inception to this very *day*, to justify raping children and calling it 'marriage', blowing up innocents and calling it 'martyrdom', butchering teen female rape victims and calling it 'honor killing', assaulting towns and taking the people into slavery to be sold, murdered or used for sexual toys, all with the smiling approval of their satanic 'holy men', and their bloodstained Book of Hatred. Only ONE!
How dare any of these poor, deluded buffoons, say, "Why, if we chased them out, we'd be just like them!" Can such a person imagine that we would then follow the muslims to torture, maim, rape and kill them? That we would make videos and broadcast them by internet, showing blood spurting from human necks as we unskillfully hacked and yanked their heads off?
Anyone who thinks this way has no understanding of the difference between civilization and savagery. And anyone who thinks that the Constitution implies in any way, the sheltering and protection of those sworn to destroy this country, has been in the re-education camps too long already. When we say 'against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic', is that too complicated?
If such a naive soul opened his or her kitchen cabinet and found that a nest of rattlesnakes had settled in, would the person say, well, we'll all get along just fine, after all, we'are all some god's creatures??? If they did, then one morning they would put a hand into the dark cabinet and bring it out with swelling fang marks. It is the NATURE of the snake to strike. It is the NATURE of the muslim to commit violence and evil. These things cannot be separated.
As final evidence, let me say that I think none of us would fear bombings, house burnings, death squads, citizen kidnapping, torture, beheading, honor killing or child rape, if a Jew, a Baptist, a Catholic, a Quaker, a Buddhist, or a Sikh were in the office of the President. Only ONE religion is synonymous with hatred, death and destruction.
Perhaps THAT - is an inconvenient truth!
My love and blessings to you one and all. Stay strong! We are with you always!
