In the first debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump one thing became clear- neither is right for occupying the White House.How can either be the right choice when both oppose the Constitution? How can they take the oath to office without the Bible bursting into flames?
Hillary made a remark supporting the idea that people on no fly lists should not be able to purchase a gun. She attacked and repudiated the 2nd Amendment and the 5th Amendment to our Constitution with that simple statement. Then Trump agreed with her.
Understand what is at stake. They both agree that a secret list compiled by someone in government is enough to eliminate your right to keep and bear arms. We have this ideal in America that due process is important. That to circumscribe someone’s rights there is a process in place that must be followed to insure that our rights are protected.The 5th Amendment covers this explicitly.
“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
How can the government legally determine that a person’s rights are negated without due process? It is the law of the land! How can they ignore that?
The government was NEVER tasked with determining if someone is guilty of a crime. That is why we have juries. Article 2 of the Constitution, the 5th, 6th and 7th Amendments all describe rights which we as Americans have that the government cannot ignore or infringe upon. A trial by jury is an inherent right under Common law and our Constitution. It is very simple. Government was never trusted to convict a citizen. That right was reserved for fellow Americans.
The 2nd Amendment is equally as clear. It states that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. It doesn’t give us that right. Our rights come from our creator and our government was instituted to protect our rights. It merely states one of our inalienable rights which the government cannot infringe.
I don’t know about you but to me the Bill of Rights is very important. Taking a position against anything contained in them is a deal breaker. If you feel the need to vote for Trump or Clinton, realize that you vote against the 2nd Amendment. You also encourage and support the ever increasing police state in which we live. This is not the path toward liberty. It is the status quo which is an ever increasingly large government whose unconstitutional interference into our daily lives escalates everyday. Say no to this insanity. Do not vote for either of these two charlatans. You nation depends on you to make the right decision.
