Mike W. had a great comment here at Joe’s:
I absolutely love that folks like Osborne are so simple and narrow-minded that they can’t see the broader implications of their views. If one specifically enumerated right can simply cease to exist once repealed what’s to stop HIS political enemy from using the same means to strip him of those rights he holds dear?
The reference is to a lefty all butthurt that the supreme court stated that the Second Amendment means what it says, and somehow seems to forget the 13th Amendment of the Constitution….or the 18th and 21st for that matter.
If you don’t like the right to keep and bear arms, by all means work to repeal that Amendment, it can and has been done with other issues in the US Constitution.
But Mike touches on something I have a HUGE issue with political hackery. I can only support the tea party so far because the vast majority of these people were stone-silent when President Bush was doing most of the authoritarian crap that they’re bitching about now that President Obama is doing it.
That being said the other side of the hackery has people who now suddenly don’t seem to care that we’re still in a fruitless war, that domestic spying has been expanded, that taxes are going up, that our President is kinda creeped out by the gays.
And here are those of us with libertarian leanings struggling to convince EITHER side to wake the hell up.
