Thought of the day: Many people question what the Founder’s would think of the 2nd Amendment today. I wonder what the Founder’s would think of our Elected Representatives. I wonder if they the Founder’s would shake their head in disapproval that we have allowed it to come to this, with all the power they originally gave the people. Would they believe that we have failed? That what they had established wasn’t good enough? Would some believe that it is impossible to create a form of government of the people, by the people, for the people because some people always want to rule and some always want to be ruled? Keep your head on a swivel and stay safe -DeltaWhiskey
