The 2nd Amendment Is the Elephant in the Room


by Wallace Garneau, American Thinker:

Let’s address the elephant in the room.

The 2nd Amendment was written as a compromise between the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists. The Federalists saw England as our nation’s greatest threat (having just fought them in the Revolutionary War, and being about to fight them again in the War of 1812), whereas the Anti-Federalists saw the Federalists as being our nation’s greatest threat. The Federalists wanted a standing Federal Army to fight foreign threats (at the time the British), whereas the Anti-Federalists wanted all military power to rest with the individual states such that the Federal Government would lack the power to infringe upon the rights of the people.


The Federalists and Anti-Federalists compromised, passing a Constitution that authorized the Federal Government to raise a permanent Federal Army, but also passing the 2nd Amendment, guaranteeing the people the power to overthrow the Federal Government, should doing so ever become necessary.

Ladies and Gentlemen – that time has come, but we are not going to overthrow the government using the 2nd Amendment, and I’m here to tell you why.

First… Why has the time come? That’s easy: the Biden Administration has worked very hard to ‘save’ democracy by ending it.

Through ‘Woke’ initiatives, the Federal agencies, unions, professional organizations, public schools, and universities, the media, social media, all of the large investment houses, banking, and much of the scientific community have all merged with the Democrat Party.

Joe Biden wrote an executive order in March 2021 ordering all federal agencies to direct their activities toward increasing voting numbers. That in and of itself does not sound so bad, but the Biden Administration also controls which organizations these ‘get out the vote’ campaigns work through and what voting groups are targeted, and all of the Federal agencies are doing everything they can to increase the vote only where the vote decidedly leans Democrat. In other words, Joe Biden has the entire weight of the Federal Government in every single Federal agency working with the Democratic Party to ensure that Democrats win elections, with our tax dollars footing the bill.

The Biden Administration has made ESG and DEI the primary focus of all of those agencies as well, and has hired an army of unionized Federal workers to implement ESG and DEI throughout the Federal Government and changed the purpose of the Federal Government into one that enforces these initiatives, outsourcing regulatory oversight and policy making to the same unions, professional organizations, public schools, and universities, media houses. Social media companies, large investment houses, banks, and scientific industries with which the Democrat Party has effectively merged, and has implemented rules forcing the same private groups to report on how well they are following orders, making this entire framework self-disciplinary.

The Biden Administration has turned the full weight of the Federal Government toward turning the United States into a one-party state, and has done so in a way that ensures that even if a Republican wins the Presidency in 2024, their entire first term will be spent reversing Joe Biden’s changes while fighting an army of unionized Federal employees working to undermine him or her at every turn.

The Federal Government of the United States is now an arm of the Democrat Party. The Republican Party will not be able to overcome that.

Now that I have shown why it is necessary to overthrow the government of the United States let me move on to the reasons we are not going to do so.

The NSA monitors every phone call, text message, Google search, and social media post we make. If you watch a video on Netflix, it goes into a database. If you watch a television show, it goes into a database. Everything you buy and everywhere you go is tracked and cataloged. Everything you say is monitored. The NSA tracks your phone, your car – if you have a microchip in your dog, the NSA is probably even tracking that. The NSA can also read a newspaper over your shoulder from outer space.
