WV Senator Joe Manchin sells out his constituents for a cabinet post offered by Barack Obama in exchange for his support on gun control.

I am a member of the West Virginia Citizens Defense League, I was sent this by our president just a few minutes ago. Take a close look at what Sen Manchin outlines as the tactics that the Obama administration will use to get this legislation passed. This is a severe blow to freedom in WV and in the nation as a whole. Please share this as widley as possible thank you.

Ladies and gentlemen of the WVCDL and West Virginia. Today, around 3PM I met with Senator Manchin. In any conversation with a person of that level of power, there are two conversations that occur at once. The first is the obvious and direct meaning of what is spoken. The second conversation is the meaning between the lines. In this case, neither is good. West Virginia, in my opinion, you have been sold out.

First, let's talk about the direct conversation. It's very simple. Senator Manchin supports a three-pronged approach that includes universal background checks, including private sales. He supports mental health-care reform. And he supports magazine capacity limits, and possibly other restrictions.

Further, he stated to me directly, that he believes 75% of West Virginians, like him, believe that the only purposes behind gun ownership and the second amendment are hunting and recreational shooting. He told me that defense is not an angle he considers or believes in, and that is specifically in the context of defense of self, and defense from tyranny. Perhaps now you understand why I've been too angry to update you on the results of the meeting. In case you're thinking of stopping here, it gets worse.

Senator Manchin told me what the media will do if Congress (including the US House of Representatives) fails to pass an AWB and/or mag restrictions. "They will one, by one, put up pictures of dead children. They will show the carnage." Considering that tomorrow, President Obama will be exploiting children by dragging them on stage with him while he outlays his plan, this is not a huge leap. And these are the words of a United States senator. We, and I don't mean just West Virginians, I mean Americans, must prepare for this. That is a direct quote. Verbatim. We need every talking head in the conservative media out in front of this. Make it happen. Share this post far and wide.

When it became clear that we were not going to find common ground, and that Senator Manchin intends to support magazine capacity limits and other pointless gun-control laws doomed to failure, I told the senator that we would be there. We would be at every single event. We would be at every fund-raiser. We would be there, and the content of our signs would not be pleasant.

And now we get to the second conversation. The one between the lines. When I said we would be there, he said, "there won't be any events."

This confused me. No politician runs for office without fund-raisers and events. And I have to admit, it wasn't I that grasped the meaning of this. I want to be clear, that the following was not stated. This was deduced by a confidant of mine, and I think she is correct. Manchin was honest. There will be no events. Why would a US Senator not need funds? This is because there will be no campaign. Joe Manchin is too young to retire from a position of such power. What does that mean?

West Virginia, this means that Joe Manchin has sold you out. It means that he has accepted some position, likely promised by Barack Obama, to place his boot in your neck in exchange for power.

Now you know. Now you know why for four hours, I was too angry to update you.

So I had a thought today , rare I know  but stay with me on this , I am not asking my representatives to merely vote no  on any proposed legislation affecting our 2nd amendment rights. I am not merely asking them to respect, support and defend the constitution, something by the way, I shouldn't have to ask any representative to do at any level, as they ALL swore an oath to do this when they entered office.
I am TELLING my representatives, all of them, at the local state and federal levels, that I DEMAND they loudly, voraciously, and without hesitation mercy or consideration defend to their last drop of blood, the Constitution of the United States as written in general and the 2nd amendment in particular. I expect them to sacrifice their personnel honor and very lives if necessary, as well as the future of their family and any hope for their political career. I demand a total committed defense of our rights, defense of the constitution and to honor of their own oaths, just as I and millions of other have as veterans and law enforcement officers have done as many have made the greatest sacrifice.
We the people must hold them accountable; public service is just that in service to the public, it supposed to be a service a sacrifice not a winning ticket to the lottery. Public service is a sacred honor and should be considered and acted as such by anyone who holds any office. Anyone that does not represent the highest ideals of freedom as written in the constitution does not deserve to be in office. Any representative who does not truly represent  their constituents the people agreeing,  should then be removed from office as soon as possible through  recall of office election, pressure and if all others fail we must avail ourselves of our revolutionary right to remove them by force.
If these our representatives have not made clear  unambiguous  direct statements devoid of the normal political maneuvering ,If these statements are not clearly stated on their website, face book page, appeared in the news  in the paper and on a billboard forty feet high they are just playing politics as usual.
I demand their utmost efforts not just lip service

 Greetings friends It has been some time since I have posted, life moves on for us all. The times are getting worse, despite the rosy predictions of the Obama administration and the slanted unreliable information coming out of the Whitehouse.

The massive government power grab that has been in process for decades by both party’s Republican and Democrat has been accelerated to a frighteningly fast pace in face of the tragic shootings in Sandy Hook CT and Aurora CO and the government’s gleeful attempts to disarm honest law-abiding Americans.

Instead of meaningful conversation about safeguarding our schools by improving mental health easing the process of having dangerous individuals committed for treatment, or improving security at schools just like they have at every City county and government building or even improving the back ground check process for legal purchase of weapons they have gone straight for the emotional impact of banning the oh so scary semiautomatic rifle, otherwise known as the “Assault Rifle”.

 They are ignoring any meaningful discussion of the facts purposely to suit their agenda which is to disarm the people, and have all camped out  in the white house for a big “How does this make you feel session”  Ignoring the fact that the numbers of people killed with a rifle are less than 400 in 20011 and that over 6000 were killed with handguns.

 You would think they would be looking at the handguns, but no that doesn’t have the big scary emotional impact as the Scary Black Rifle and never mind they will be coming for the pistols soon enough.
They ignore the fact that the majority of the total numbers of handgun deaths are caused by and in relation to criminal activity, with only a few thousand of these deaths was murder the goal. They also ignore the vast number of other assaults.

Simply put it’s mostly criminals killing each other, with the occasional bystander thrown in, and this will not be affected by attempting to disarm honest law-abiding American’s. Because criminals and nut jobs do not generally care what the law is anyway.

 Deaths unfortunately happen, tragic horrible deaths always have and always will they cannot by any means be prevented a 100%.  There is no such thing as complete safety in the world that’s an American illusion ask any vet that’s been overseas they will tell you it’s an illusion and that you yourself are your own best source of security, ignore that at your peril.

Free American and free Americans understand that the 2nd amendment is not just a right but is a duty and an obligation every American is responsible to up hold and defend as we the people are the Militia not the government.

  The straws have been piling up on the people, we have been overburdened with taxes in support of a vocal rabble that refuses to support itself we have been inflicted with parasites drawing off wealth and resource’s that we the working minority have sweated and bled for depriving us of the just rewards of our own labors to share it out with those who take advantage of every opportunity to do nothing for themselves. We have been scorned and ridiculed by the press the media and our elected official’s labeled as flyover states, T baggers, Racists, religious fundamentalists, evangelicals, as the president says we have nothing left to cling to but our god and our guns. This ignores that fact that we are many things many groups Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, and no real party at all we are all parts, conservative, liberal, religious and not, we are black white brown and natives, many colors races religions but foremost and fundamentally we are AMERICANS. We do not cling to old world culture, the past or what land our forebears or fathers came from either yesterday or two hundred years ago , we are Americans and that’s enough.

There is a simmer taking place right now right here, its in thousands of places on blogs and in papers in living rooms and offices at work and at home, ordinary americans, we are many and we are waking up. 
Americans have realized the government has overstepped and crossed the line, and must be stopped from any further invasion of our homes, schools, bodies and churches.

 I have never seen so many reacting to government overreach so strongly. These are peaceful people hopeful of the future normally, who have been pushed finally irrevocably too far. We want our rights unencumbered by oppressive regulation, the freedom as intended in the constitution to exercise them to reach each our own limits of personnel success or failure standing on our own feet responsible for our own decisions good or bad without government intervention. Those who seek a handout and support while contributing nothing positive to their own lives or society will have to face the consequences of their own actions.

This country was founded on and has until the modern era been a race of men and women who first and foremost counted on themselves not on the government or even on others to save them. Look to yourself first what can you do to make yourself better your life and circumstance better. Those who would trade freedom for security deserve and indeed will get neither. 

We may be little people unimportant to those in power but they forget they derive their power form the consent of the governed, looks like it’s time we took it back.
