Ask a Horse – Effect Of Decentralized Power

PI2013 #581 – Effect Of Decentralized Power


“Waiting periods are only a step. Registration is only a step. The prohibition of private firearms is the goal”  ~ Janet Reno


September 11th, 2013

Liberty Lovers, Every American Taxpayer Now “Owes” “The (federal) State” $148,148, every citizen $53,483.

“I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.” ~ Barack Obama

Two Personal Firearm Rectriction advocates have been recalled from Colorado’s State Senate.  Both rationalized their recalls as not reflecting ‘overwhelming’ numbers of Coloradans favoring expanded personal firearm restrictions.  Constituents voted differently.

“If someone is so fearful that, that they’re going to start using their weapons to protect their rights, makes me very nervous that these people have weapons at all!” ~ Representative Henry A. Waxman (courtesy an AAH reader)

We, the American People would be extraordinarily naivé to believe personal firearm restriction advocates would be satisfied with ‘common sense’ controls like increased background checks or ammunition capacity limits.

Decentralized Power Fortifies Liberty’s promise.  Despotism and tyranny thrive on centralized power and legal control over many by a select few.  Centralized power has its roots in oppressive law written to grant maximum authority to public officials, minimum to ordinary people.

“Democracy is defended in 3 stages.  Ballot Box, Jury Box, Cartridge Box.” ~  Ambrose Bierce

Liberty Is Self-Determination.  Self-determination is forever at risk when ‘government’ (“The State”) has power to restrict means of self-defense available to ordinary people while arming law enforcement with firepower deemed appropriate or necessary.

People Intending To Live In Liberty do not allow legislators – or other public officials within These United States of America, to interfere in business matters between private citizens in any way so long as those dealings are free of fraudulent behavior by all parties and do not encourage threats to national security by foreign powers or known enemies of the United States of America. They negotiate business matters on their own.

Let Freedom Ring


It’s your property, not “State” property.

Best Wishes,
