The difference between Left and Right
OK - this can go a number of directions I know, but I think that this poll over at Minnesota Public Radio is the most telling one I have seen. It asks (I am deadly serious here) which one of the Constitutionally granted rights they are most willing to give up to the government! That's right gentle reader, our friends on the left are willing to give up their God granted, Constitutional rights. Not surprisingly, according to the poll 40.2% of my fellow Minnesotans would be perfectly happy to surrender their right to bear arms. While that result does not surprise me, it certainly frightens and saddens me at the same time. The right of the citizenry to keep and bear arms is going to be the right that protects the other rights from the over-reaching arm of an out of control government who is bent on usuruping the rights of the people!
So there you have it, dear readers....our friends on the left are happy to give away their rights while those of us on the right are not willing to give up a single one! For we on the right know, that the day the citizens give up any one of these God given rights (to the government) the rest will fall in short order! The people of Minnesota need to wake up to the fact that government is not our friends and that the best government is the one that governs least!
