I’m the last person around here who could competently (or civilly) opine regarding this kind of thing, so it would be nice if somebody could please research this thoroughly – especially delving into the folks on the list to speak.
We’re entering an extremely dangerous time in our nation – powder-keg-dangerous….. The left already has thousands of lit matches in hand and they’re the antithesis to anything safety related
On a personal note, I’ve already had to cash in one of my two 401K plans – I was laid off back in July and that money is the only way I can keep a roof over my head, eat, pay bills, etc. for the foreseeable future – you know, the used-to-be-normal life things a few people in America like to be involved with.
I have one more 401K left to my name and it’s not big at all. If this Totalitarian disaster-in-the-making / tipping point for a real revolution gains traction, I’ll cash in that 401K, pay the penalty and tax, stash my money in vehicles where I know it will remain mine and have some of it do good on my behalf (at least one ammo purchase comes to mind), then go from there.
The framers of our Constitution knew that the government should never have a monopoly on force. That’s why they articulated our God given right to self defense and ensured the right to keep and bear arms was written in our Bill of Rights. Let’s not forget: George Washington didn’t use his right to free speech to defeat the British. He shot them.
