I just want to personally commend the cast of Hamilton for asking VP Pence to, “uphold our American values,” after Pence attended a performance recently. Unfortunately, Trump had to take the encounter out of context by outright calling it harassment and saying that the cast was “rude” and should “apologize.” So when Trump takes office in January and he is met with protesters that are asking for Trump to uphold their American values, is he going to use that same rhetoric…your damn right he is.
Trump supporters have said that out of several reasons for choosing Trump for President of the Divided States of America, some of the key reasons were because they didn’t trust Hillary and that they wanted someone in the White House that would take our country in a different direction.
Well, I think I finally understand.
Its not that Trump supporters wanted someone in office that was less crooked than Hillary…they wanted someone that was crookeder than Hillary. Case in point – instead of going to court to testify in the now defunct Trump University trial, he chose to settle to the tune of $25 million dollars.
It’s quite clear that the reason that he settled was to avoid having to face the truth that he ruined the lives of about 6,000 people that believed in him. Now imagine what he can do to this country.
Yea…Trump is going to take this country in another direction and it’s not up.
The Second Amendment of our Constitution was ratified in 1791. Before then, “The Brown Bess muzzle-loading smoothbore musket was one of the most commonly used weapons in the American Revolution” (Wikipedia).
The Brown Bess, “was capable of firing approximately three to four shots per minute and was a “flint-lock musket, meaning it would use flint in order to spark the gunpowder loaded into the gun to eventually cause the metal ball/bullet to leave the barrel” (Wikipedia).
When the founding fathers wrote the Second Amendment, this was the type of weapon that was on their minds not the type of assault rifles we have today. Frankly, I believe that if these men were brought back from the dead today, they would be ashamed and question why we did not do anything to amend the Second Amendment so that it protects us from ourselves.
