It’s time for ideological conservatives to come to grips with the very real and most probable outcome of this year’s election: a Hillary Clinton presidency. Not only does it appear certain that Hillary Clinton will win the White House, but the Senate appears likely to revert to Democratic control, creating the very same political circus we suffered under from 2011 to 2015. This is the reality of the situation that we are in, made unfortunately more likely with the independent candidacy of Evan McMullin, to whom I wish the best of luck.
Meanwhile, the very same malcontents that emphatically declared that they didn’t need ideological conservatives to win and that the Republican Party is now exclusively theirs, are only now, after the desperateness of their situation has finally settled in, demanding the consensus unity that they openly mocked just months ago? Even under the best of conditions, it was difficult to get the Republican Party under one tent. How much more difficult after so much energy and vitriol has been spent kicking us unceremoniously out of the tent to begin with? No, the chance for conciliation has passed. I, for one, remember what they said we could do to ourselves.
Our one refuge is and shall always remain the principles of Natural Law, however the primary motivating factor among Republicans today is very obviously fear that Hillary will “load the Supreme Court with far left justices, forever dismantling the Constitution“. This is, of course, obviously the truth, but anyone that believes that Hillary Clinton or any orientation of Supreme Court justices can have any effect at all on our fundamental Natural Law rights clearly doesn’t have even a basic understanding of the principles that were fundamental to our country’s founding.
Newsflash, our Natural Law rights to speech, to religion, to assembly, to association, to contract, to keep and bear arms aren’t granted to you by the United States Constitution, friends. They didn’t start handing out guns after the Bill of Rights was ratified. The right to keep and bear arms predated the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the United States Constitution, and, yes, even the Bill of Rights. It predated even the very line of British Kings that the American colonists had to defy to become a nation in the first place. This fundamental right to keep and bear arms predated even the very first time a hunter gatherer stepped out from his cave and sharpened a stick into a rudimentary spear.
There’s no clearer way to say this but that the Second Amendment doesn’t create the right to defend ourselves from hostile individuals or even our own government. It is an intrinsic right endowed to us by God. The only thing Hillary Clinton and a Supreme Court full of far left justices could force us to do is over throw them in violent insurrection, thus the only way for us to truly lose our Natural Law rights is if we give them up to the cackling pant suit without a fight. “Because I said so” is not a compelling argument to obedience to anyone other than children.
I don’t know about any of you, but last time I check, I am not a child. Get a backbone fit for a Patriot!
Be brave. Be free.
Liberty is For The Win!
