Push for gun control misplaces blame
by Star Parker, OneNewsNow
Why are President Obama and Senator Dianne Feinstein so ready to compromise basic American freedoms with gun control measures to solve a problem that Obama acknowledges we don’t understand?
“Never let a crisis go to waste.”
Most people, such as the author of this article, are sincerely agonizing over what is happening to our nation. They struggle to come up with common sense / logical reasons why the Obama administration acts as they do.
Not many are willing to publicly state or even theorize the motivation to shred the Constitution and eliminate our rights while making up new “rights” to fit their agenda (healthcare, contraceptives, equal outcomes, etc.). They don’t seem capable of believing that there can be Americans that are truly anti-American. At least they don’t admit it. Thus we have near useless discussions and articles that only preach to the choir by delving into the failings of Obama and his administration.
Don’t get me wrong; this is a beautiful and smart article. It’s just frustrating. The attempts by sincere people to discuss these failings lead to frustration because we begin with a fallacy. That fallacy is that this administration has the same goals as patriotic citizens do; to cure what ails our nation.
They cannot or will not face the possibility that our leaders desire America to fail. To even suggest this would raise such a ruckus among the elite on the right (as well as the Alinsky tactics of the left) that it would shut down any serious attempt to delve into this possibility. Even as we readers and commenters try to bring up this subject, we are called conspiracy theorists and crazy; not to be engaged with serious discussions.
As I stated before, not many are willing to bring this up. Thank God for the few who have tried and are still trying. I think of Rush, Levin and sometimes Hannity (although he has other issues). I’m sure there are others.
I guess the reason I’m bringing this up is that when I read articles like the one above, I become frustrated that the authors don’t seem to consider that what they are saying really doesn’t matter to our leaders today. They can make absolute sense and come up with the most eloquent solutions to our problems today, but those who create the problems just respond (if they even read these articles) by saying, “Pffftttt”.
