Remember when the Supreme Court delivered a majority opinion that stated that the second amendment guarantees the right of the individual to own firearms? Remember when Obama stated (even though his past record indicated otherwise) that he agreed with the Supreme Court ruling but that he also felt there was a need for "common sense" regulation? Well hang on to your hats, folks, because the proposed "common sense" legislation is beginning. Illinois is proposing a bill that would require all gun owners to purchase a million dollar insurance policy to cover liability. According to Glenn Beck, there is not one single insurance company in the United States that will sell that kind of a policy. But if you don't have a million-dollar gun-ownership policy, Illinois will revoke your firearms owner I.D. card and then you will be committing a felony if you don't get rid of your gun.

We believe that Obama is masking his true intentions behind rhetoric. His record is very anti-gun ownership for the individual, so he'll find another way around the Supreme Court decision. We also believe that he's employing the same tactic with the so-called "Fairness Doctrine." His administration has stated that he's not for bringing back the Fairness Doctrine, but we believe it will come up again, only disguised with a different title. So we were cautiously hopeful when we read that Republican Senator, Jim DeMint, S.C., wants Senate Democrats to go on the record one way or another on the issue.
Senator DeMint stated, “I’m glad President Obama finally confirmed his opposition to the Fairness Doctrine, which attacks the right of free speech on talk radio, but many Democrats in Congress are still pushing it,” DeMint said. “With the support of the new administration, now is the time for Congress to take a stand against this kind of censorship. I intend to seek a vote on this amendment next week so every senator is on record: Do you support free speech or do you want to silence voices you disagree with?”
As stated above, we're very cautiously optimistic but we're not holding our breaths, because the dems in Congress won't like Senator DeMint's proposal and will probably do everything they can to stop a vote on the issue. The link below will take you to the entire article.
And while we're on the subject of America turning into a socialist country, there's an article today on the AmericanThinker.com about a warning issued to the United States from Russian Prime Minister Vladamir Putin. He tells the United States not to make the same mistake Russia made by going socialist, because “In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.” Obama, are you listening? To read the entire article, click here:
