...then under what set of Rules do we exist, and should we exist?
We ran a few polls recently:
96% of you say Rule of Law is dead.
82% of you agree that you are personally ready to participate in a black-bag-a-commie-for-mommie Op.
94% of you re-affirm RoL is dead, and it is time to respond in kind.
Now, don't get me wrong. I know these polls are not even close to scientific, and the pool of people answering those polls are of a shared and non-mainstream political worldview.
But, does it matter, even one little bit, that the people answering the polls, in such overwhelming affirmation that it is time to go to work, represent such a small percentage of the populace? It didn't matter to Sam Adams and his boys on the docks. It didn't matter to Patrick Henry or most of the others who gave birth to this republic.
So now what you need to think about, very seriously, in the dead of night when you are not able to sleep, in that very quiet place in your own mind where you do not even allow your husband or wife of fifty years to enter: If Rule of Law is dead, that means that the rules which governed our upper-paleolithic hunter-gatherer aunties and uncles are in effect. (They always have been, but that's a topic for another cheery day.) That means you can't trust anyone to treat you fairly, under any circumstances. It means that when you are stopped by LEO, he may choose to put his M4 in your face, because he can. He may shoot your toy poodle, because he can. Banks can simply hold your money, because they can. If you make it to court, you will lose, because the Rule of Law is dead and the Rule of Man is in play. They will win because they can.
What has changed since Heller and MacDonald, in real terms, regarding 2A? 2A has lost ground in every major Blue state in the republic (the states that elect Presidents), 2A has lost the biggest fight since 1934 in the Obamacare "Prohibited Persons" designation which is already expanding the number of "Prohibited Persons" via "Mental Health" and has your doctor reporting to Herr Wolf. And people are braying for secession, as if those Blue areas will never choke them off economically, starve them like Ukrainians, and then move in and take those precious guns from cold, dead, famine-clenched hands before re-claiming the valuable land.
If you believe in your heart that Rule of Law is dead, are you going to continue to live under what they decree to be "Law"?
If not, then you'd better have your war-face on. You'd better have your Go Bag and tools of war with you, every moment. Because when they confront you, whether at your home, at your office, on the subway, in email from some local bureaucracy, at the pizza place for lunch, or on a traffic stop, their Law gives them the Right to kill you, where you stand or sit. They do not need a reason.
Personally, I only see one way to return the Rule of Law in America - Hit those bastards so brutally they BEG to reinstate the genuine Rule of Law to protect themselves from us.
But we decide when, and if, that happens - not them. Crying "OK! We surrender!" is a suckers move, and if you stop then, you are just laying the ground for your kid or grandkid to have to face it all over again.
Ladies and gentlemen, it is time and you had best un-fuck yourself.
That is all.
