Obama has called his inability to massively infringe upon the constitutional rights of the American people his greatest disappointment as president, and it no doubt is. The idea that hundreds of millions of Americans are able to protect themselves without government assistance, like proud, independent citizens, must gnaw at him. But even more distressing to Obama and his coterie of liberal fascists is the knowledge that the presence of 300 million guns out there means that the American people retain their own absolute veto power.Sure, liberals never met a civil right that actually exists in the Constitution that they didn’t want to violate, but they have a special hatred for the Second Amendment. That our citizenry is armed constrains the progressives in a way that their acknowledged (or, at least, not denied) heroes like Castro and Chavez, and their unacknowledged role models like Hitler and Mussolini, were not constrained. Without a liberal government monopoly on force, this country can only tilt so far to the left before a critical mass of Americans says, “Nah, I don’t think so,” and the progressives have to convince some group of suckers to don the uniforms that our Constitution-loving military would largely abandon and go risk dying to force faculty-lounge fantasies upon a rebellious and deadly citizenry. . .
And, most decisively, the left has lost practically – Americans have decided that we’re going to keep our guns because the alternative is to submit completely to the likes of Obama and his fascist friends. If they want to live the Aussie dream of confiscating our guns they’ll have to talk millions of Democrat constituents into training and arming-up to do it, and that’s not happening. Not only would it be super dangerous, but it seems like hard work. Liberals are putting gun control on the back burner for now, but they have not forgotten it. Their inability to disarm the American people and render them servile subjects unable to protect themselves and their rights remains liberalism’s most profound disappointment. They will try again. Which is why we Americans must remain ever locked and loaded.
