It has been said that the success of a democracy and the welfare of its citizens can be reduced to four boxes: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

The soap box. This is where all free citizens are allowed to stand up and voice their opinion on any subject they feel like. You can be as far out in left field as you want and people will either believe you, and side with you, or not. The point is that you have a forum to express your opinion, and it is NOT regulated by the state or controlled by the media. However, if you look at the so-called ‘main stream media’ today, you will find that it is controlled by the “Progressives” (aka Democrats), and that if anybody dares to speak against the approved party line, they are demonized and portrayed as ‘right wing radicals’. As far as I’m concerned, there is no sense at all watching ABC (the All Barack Channel) or being one of the four people who still watch MSNBC. CBS, of Dan Rather fame, simply reports opinions, not news, just like all Liberal media. Occasionally, NBC (National Barack Channel) will report a piece of real news, but usually only after they have been forced to report it after another news outlet such as FOX News broke the story – but they will do their best to ‘spin’ it.

The ballot box. Vladimir Lenin once said that “the person who casts the ballots does not determine the outcome. It’s the person who counts that ballot that determines the outcome”. Take a look at our last Presidential election where voter fraud was rampant. As I write this, there is an on-going case where several members of the Democrat party have already pleaded guilty to falsifying petitions to get Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the Indiana ballot in 2008 by forging voter signatures. Two others are standing trial now. From what has been revealed so far, it is doubtful Obama would have even qualified to be on the Indiana ballot. In the 2012 elections, for example, there were several precincts in Philadelphia where Obama received 100% of the vote, and 128% in another, both of which are statistical impossibilities – then there are the ‘hacked’ voting machines that defaulted all votes to Obama.

The Jury box. We are a nation of laws – at least we are supposed to be, but after seeing what has been going on I have my doubts. It’s not the law that matters anymore, it’s what the governing elite want, and what they will do to get it, like “fundamentally changing” the U.S. into a Socialistic Utopia of the Liberal Elites. Obama has been busy appointing Federal Judges who agree, completely, with his left wing agenda and who interpret the law to suit that agenda rather than follow the law. When push comes to shove, what are your options when the ruling regime has stacked the deck and appointed judges that could care less about the rule of law but would instead ‘spin’ their rulings to further their leftist agenda? What do you do when you believe in the rule of law and your case goes all the way to the Supreme Court where you are overruled by a “wise Latina” who chooses to put her ‘life’s experiences’ over the previously settled rule of law? Excuse my French, but you’re screwed, you’re out of options. That only leaves you one choice.

The cartridge box. Our country was founded by a revolution. The people were sick and tired of the way they were being treated by the ruling elite residing in England, so they took up arms and united to throw off the yoke of tyranny. I’m afraid we are now at the tipping point where people are fed up with the ruling elite residing in Washington, DC.
Thomas Jefferson once said “ The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it away. ”
Look around you. What do you see happening now? The Government is trying to disarm the population. Gun control is and has always been a scheme of the powerful to deprive the powerless of the right to self defense, and history has repeatedly proven this to be true. Barack and his flunkies would like nothing more than to have an unarmed, docile population where they, as the rulers, could do anything they desired.

Obama (king is his own mind) already rules by decree with his use of unending streams of “executive orders”. He has issued 153 Executive orders as of April 24, 2013, more than any other President in our history. Which brings me to the question: Where the HELL is Congress? Why are they letting him continually bypass them? They CAN override his executive orders but choose not to. The Constitution, which they took an oath to uphold and defend, be damned!

Guns and ammunition are now in short supply. People are buying them as fast as they can in anticipation of the time when citizens say “enough” and they are forced to repeat history by revolting against their oppressors. Molan Labe! That’s ancient Greek for “Come and get them”.

Have we passed through the Soap Box, Ballot Box, and Jury box phases and are we now facing the prospect of resorting to the Cartridge Box?
