I am sure most of you have seen Glenn Beck’s NRA Speech over the weekend. If you have not I highly recommend you take the time to watch it in its entirety.

I watched the entire speech, and Glenn is absolutely right, we can either give –up, stop watching television, we can unplug and no longer engage; we can curl up, roll over and scream uncle, or we can get angry! It’s difficult to stay plugged in today, to stay tuned into the rhetoric and the excessive use of verbal embellishment, with the Liberals constantly poking us in the chest. I don’t know about you, but nothing sets my teeth on edge more, or makes me angry quicker than to have someone poke me in the chest just once; let alone over and over and over again!
It is time to take personal responsibility of our lives, every aspect of our lives. Personal responsibility for our guns, making sure we have taken the appropriate classes to know how to handle a gun, how to holster a gun, how to keep it safely in our homes; to have the appropriate conceal carry permits. It is time for all American’s to guard against tyranny. We must take personal responsibility for our stance; admitting that we will cling to our God and our Guns, because God is our Rock, and our guns are our God-given right and responsibility to protect not only our families, but to protect our Republic from tyranny!
So when the President tells young people: “Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted,” we will have the courage, and the moral fortitude; the physical and emotional strength to be guided and enlightened by moral convictions and ethical principles controlled by enlightened reasoning and religious values; to stand up and inform our youth that the President of the United States of America is a Liar and a tyrannical dictator, who wants nothing more than to control every aspect of their lives and he will do or say anything to accomplish that task. http://rare.us/story/obama-dont-listen-to-those-people-who-warn-about-tyranny/?SSFEAT=1101RareConnector-1363899192514&SREF=FBOpenGraph&SREFFBID=1618703967&SFBState=Unknown
So we must stand up and accept our own place in this fight. Liberty is gone, that train has left the station, long ago, while we slept at the wheel. Now is the fight to regain our Liberty, and we must stand up and take responsibility for ourselves. Take personal responsibility and yes, take responsibility for our communities; to be charitable to those in our communities who are less fortunate than ourselves, not by calling upon the government to take care of them, but through our churches, and our own Christian faith. It is time to put on the Full Armor of God.
We must put on the belt of truth, always speaking the truth, that which is true and in accordance with fact or reality, not some fabricated and made up truth such as the fabricated myths of climate change, or the made-up truths of Benghazi! We must put on the breastplate of righteousness, adhering to moral principles and virtues. Governor Morris, Penman and Signer of the Constitution said of moral principles; “[F]or avoiding the extremes of despotism or anarchy . . . the only ground of hope must be on the morals of the people.”
Our feet must be firm in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for therein lies the truth. We must take up the shield of Faith, standing firm in the knowledge that Christ is with us always, “to be strong and courageous for the Lord your God goes with you and will never leave or forsake you!” ~Deuteronomy 31:6. And we must put on the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit which is the Word of God.
The times ahead of us will not be easy, they will be very trying, demanding and challenging. As Thomas Paine said; “These are the times that try men’s souls.” This evil among us will continue to attack us at every corner. Their mentor, their hero is Saul Alinsky, who dedicated his book Rules for Radicals to Lucifer, to Satan! So this alone shouts volumes as to who these people are, who they hold in high esteem and yes who they follow and emulate. Yes we are fighting against principalities, against powers against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. The hour is late and this spiritual wickedness will up the ante, they will raise the stakes at every corner, they will find your weakness and they will use it against you to gain control and power over you. So put on the Full Armor of God, and prepare for battle, but not with guns, with the Shield and Sword of Faith and Truth.
It is Charles Carroll of Carrollton, signer of the Declaration of Independence, who stated: “Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime & pure, [and] which denounces against the wicked eternal misery, and [which] insured to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.” (Source: Bernard C. Steiner, The Life and Correspondence of James McHenry (Cleveland: The Burrows Brothers, 1907), p. 475. In a letter from Charles Carroll to James McHenry of November 4, 1800.) http://www.wallbuilders.com/libissuesarticles.asp?id=63
