Has anyone checked out FreeRepublic yet?

Y'know, just to see what all the Daniel Boone hero types are doing to prepare for the revolution and stuff?



I haven't looked. Yet.

We will kick their ASS!

Our President, the best Democratic president in a long time and therefore the best President in a really, really long time, if forced too, will drone their asses back to the stone age? Do they really want to test the mettle of the most efficient politician this country has seen in a long time?

Really, do they know who they are fucking with? I don't think they do.

15. Yep

If Obama had the time, which website would Obama join? DU, or them?

Obama has the right to bare arms and he will bare-knuckle anybody who tries to destroy our country thru armed revolution. And we'd all be backing him up. They just don't know who they are messing with do they? We will make this a better country and if it means steamrolling them to get there well, my advice is: Watch out freepers.

The one executive action that has them completely going off the deep end is this one:

13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.


because oviously when a black guy does something to enforce existing laws, something the gun lobby has screamed about for decades, it's TYRANNY!!!!

and, because FREEDOM!

36. They were emulating Davy Crockett until one nimrod actually finished the book

We have the right as individuals to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right to appropriate a dollar of the public money. - Davy Crockett

Heaven knows that I have done all that a mortal could do, to save the people, and the failure was not my fault, but the fault of others. - Davy Crockett

Although our great man at the head of the nation, has changed his course, I will not change mine. - Davy Crockett

I have suffered my self to be politically sacrificed to save my country from ruin and disgrace and if I am never a gain elected I will have the gratification to know that I have done my duty. - Davy Crockett

Throughout the day no time for memorandums now. Go ahead! Liberty and independence forever. - Davy Crockett

Since you have chosen to elect a man with a timber toe to succeed me, you may all go to Hell and I will go to Texas. - Davy Crockett

Without the assault weapon ban, the 100% NICS check, and the magazine restriction, the rest is like a bunch of weak New Years resolutions.

And those three have to get through a Republican-controlled House.

I would think the Freepers would be doing a happy-dance over there.

But, no, I didn't (and won't) check out FreeRepublic. I'll catch it here, second-hand, thanks.

46. They're really in a tizzy

Freepers' gun paranoia seems to have turned inward. What begins as a run-of-the-mil pretending regulation is the same as confiscation, Freepers' grim chest thumping about what they're going to do when Obama comes for them switches into arguments about who destroyed America - Romney voters, or non Romney voters.

But first, sinister numerology!

RandallFlagg thinks the fact that there are 19 suggested Executive Actions is suspicious...
My tinfoil hat is chiming in here:
Why would he use the number nineteen?
Something to do with Gun Appreciation day on the 19th?
Would this be sending a signal, perhaps?

SpaceBar knows why it was 19!
There were nineteen muslim hijackers, if you donít count Obama.

Dutch Boy thinks it's Nation of Islam.
The number 19 is Calypso Louieís magic number. Itís also an important number in Islam.

Aaaanyhow, fatnotlazy knows it's up to individuals to resist restrictions on gun manufacturers....somehow.
Donít expect Congress or the courts to defend your right to keep and bear arms. YOU will have to take a stand. YOU will have to resist.

Candor7:
Civil Disobedience is about to manifest. Let them come.

paratrooper82 knows this nonexistent confiscation began with preventing felons from carrying.
I find in ironic that most Americans including the NRA supported preventing felons (who had served their time and paid their debt to society) from possessing firearms, this gave the communist a foot in the door for gun control.

Now that the same communist are coming for so called honest Americans firearms, all hell is breaking out (as it should), like no one saw this coming? (Mission creeping) Gun control is a double edge sword, it certainly cuts both ways, while it sounds great for convicted felons; did not one single American see that the communist were coming for everyone firearms, not just the convicted felons? Fool me once . . .

I'll bet itssme's local congressman is not a fan:
WE MUST CALL THE REPUBLICAN/CONSERVATIVE POLITICIANS AND DEMAND THAT THEY STAND WITH REP. STILLMAN AND THREATEN TO IMPEACH OBOZO IF HE THREATENS TO GO EXECUTIVE ORDER AND DO AS HE WISHES. WE CANNOT STOP APPLYING PRESSURE, WE CANNOT STOP CALLING AND FAXING THESE POLITICIANS...WE MUST CONTINUE TO APPLY PRESSURE TO THESE PEOPLE...IF REP STILLMAN FOUND THE BALLS AND THE FIRE IN HIS BELLY TO STAND UP AND FIGHT THIS BASTARD IN O-U-R WHITE HOUSE, THEN THERE MAY BE MORE OUT THERE WHO WILL DO THE SAME, AND IT IS O-U-R JOB TO KEEP CALLING AND APPLYING PRESSURE! WE MUST USE EVERY OPTION WE CAN THINK OF TO DEMAND, DELAY, OBSTRUCT, SABOTAGE, REFUSE, AND KEEP APPLYING PRESSURE ON THE VERY PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE MOST POWER AT THIS POINT TO DO SOMETHING, AND DO SOMETHING THEY MUST! SO LET'S DROP THE NEGATIVE RHETORIC, AND ALL THE TALK ABOUT HOW WE ARE DOOMED AND THAT WE HAVE LOST. GET ON THE PHONE, YOUR FAX, AND CALL THE REPUBLICAN/CONSERVATIVE POLITICIANS AND DEMAND THAT THEY IMPEACH OBOZO....THESE POLITICIANS MUST STAND UP AND DO THEIR DUTY TO THEIR OATH TO DEFEND AND PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION AND THE LIBERTY, FREEDOM, RIGHTS! OF WE THE PEOPLE.
