Barack Obama, the president-who-leads-from-behind, says he wants to challenge “state stand your ground statutes”. So, from where did this idea of “Stand Your Ground” come?
Well, Mr. President-who-leads-from-behind, ‘stand your ground’ predates the Constitution. In fact, it predates the Declaration of Independence. These were the words of Captain John Parker, commander of the Lexington Militia at the Battle of Lexington on April 19, 1775.
You see, Mr. President, from the very first time this phrase was used, it was a SELF DEFENSE posture. Captain Parker ordered his militia to, “Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.“
Unlike the crowd you run with, Mr. Obama, we American patriots understand this principle. It was this mindset that led to a name change of of the War Department. After weathering and surviving a panoply of war from the American Revolution, through the Civil War, up until the post war era of the 1940’s, the War Department was renamed the Department of Defense.
I understand how you imagine America a “colonial power” to be overthrown and dismantled. You’re wrong. Dead wrong. But, I assume nothing I say here will change your flawed perspective on my country.
And so it is, I write for the benefit of my fellow Americans.
The big lie is gun violence is ever increasing. The truth is just the opposite. However, it is the lie that leftists like this sitting president use to disarm us. Don’t be misled. Don’t fall prey to leftist propaganda. I close by saying this: a disarmed citizenry is an enslaved citizenry.
