Re: The Founding Fathers Had It Right
Before I begin – thanks for your decades of service.
And, truth be hold, this post is less for you than it is for the rafts of liberals who’ve signed on as famboys this past 24 hours.
But the founding fathers knew that the military (as an institution, not as individual soldiers) is one of the things we needed to guard against to preserve our clvil liberties. The standing army was every bit as big a boogeyman to the framers as the AR15 is to Andrew Cuomo.
And just as a cop or a county attorney or a federal prosecutor would love to toss the Fourth Amendment into the scrap heap (to the extent, let’s be honest, that it hasn’t been), let’s just say your input is appreciated, but not really needed.
It’s not really against type, let’s just say.
That is all.
