August, 2000. Let me see… September, October, November. What have I done today, to help defeat the Clintonistas in the November election?
That is a question I hope many are asking themselves. This is one of the most important elections in the last fifty years. Yes, Reagan defeating Carter was important. Certainly, as to the last two elections, it would have been nice to NOT have the Clinton crowd selling out America for the last eight years, but that is almost water over the “damn” now. The repercussions of Clinton’s assault on our freedom and liberty will be echoing for years, if not decades. This coming election is pivotal- it is crucial to the continuation of the freedom of Americans that the Gore campaign be stopped at the ballot box.
It is not just a matter of whether I get to leave my grandchildren a 22-caliber rifle, or a hunting shotgun. It’s not even a matter of whether they get my MP5 or Maxim gun. It is simply about the foundations of our freedom that have been undermined by the last two Clinton terms. Our presidency is now a tarnished thing, a sick dirty joke, because of the buffoon who has sat in that office and literally sold the greatness of our nation. Clinton may be a “Smart” man, but he certainly has reduced the office of President to the lowest moral level conceivable. Only the ultra-liberal US media can still believe the Emperor is wearing any clothes.
“I HAVE A DREAM!” (Shouted out, finger in the air, echoing over the crowd) Yes, I have a dream. That dream is of George W. Bush taking that November election, and on January 22, 2001, when he walks in the Oval Office and sits in that seat of power, the sea tides change. Call me naïve, call me a dreamer, and I will admit to that… (this is a dream after all). On that fateful day, orders are issued. Executive orders. Ones that overturn eight years of Clinton ruling by fiat. A large broom is pushed through the halls of our Capitol, and Clinton’s “Legacy”, those few lying, perjuring rats who have sold out our defense technology, who have led the barbarians to the gates, who have even sold our honor, are driven from their hiding holes. The Clinton officials who oversaw the Waco massacre, the never ending cover-ups on all of Clinton’s scandals, and the manipulation of the information to Americans, well, they are no longer protected, and the investigations truly begin…..Justice is allowed to truly be blind, and to resolve the crimes of the last eight years.
(Earth to Dan…. Earth to Dan…. Are you out there?) Uh… sorry… Yeah, that’s probably not going to happen. But, you know what? It is a far more likely thing to wish for than to think that another Clintonista term will leave ANY of our freedom intact. It’s not just about the guns. On every front, Freedom is being attacked. Our privacy, our possessions, our free speech, our freedom of religion, freedom against unreasonable search and seizure. Is the ownership of arms by free men one of the underpinnings of a free society? Yes, but it is not the only issue here.
It is necessary to move ahead, to keep our eye on the objective. If we “Conservatives”, or we “Libertarians”, we freedom oriented majority, get caught up with internal squabbles, divide our votes or stay home on election day, well, the damage could be irreversible.
Imagine a Gore presidency. I don’t need to fill in the blanks, you can do it yourselves.
That should be enough motivation to make all of us grab every eligible voter we know, lock elbows, and march straight to the voting booths on that fateful November day, and to ensure the Clinton “Legacy” does not continue on!
