President Obama has been fairly quiet on gun control since he's been in office, but yesterday he decided to go there; “I know that every time we try to talk about guns, it can reinforce stark divides,"  He goes on, "However, I believe that if common sense prevails, we can get beyond wedge issues and stale political debates to find a sensible, intelligent way to make the nation a safer, stronger place." Now Obama is a liberal so I knew he wouldn't leave my guns alone, and really all he is saying, right now, is we need to enforce existing gun laws. That I am 100% OK with. But when you read that quote, you can see the little hamster on the wheel in his head running as fast as it can and that is what worries me.

There was a time during his campaign that Obama was like King Midas, everything he touched turned to gold. He seemed to overcome impossible odds to get the top job. But, since he has been president it's been more like anti-Midas, everything he touches turns to garbage. I guess you can also liken him to the king with no clothes, but lets stick to anti-Midas. Stimulus, healthcare, bail-outs, foreign policy and outright socialism, normally I'd be very happy to see a democrat go down in flames, but Obama is somehow still wielding popularity. Looking at 2012 it seems like he is going to win a second term and I can't for the life of me figure out why. This Country is in shambles, we are embracing our enemies, alienating our friends, looking at a double dip recession, gas prices and unemployment are sky high, yet Obama's crown is still firmly atop his head. 

Guns are one of the issues Obama had shied away from, probably because it is highly controversial and they have a huge base that cannot be budged. But with Obama going around and wildly doing whatever he wants damned what the people of America think, I worry about a Nazi style gun ban (yeah i said it!). The Second Amendment exist to keep the power with the people and not the government. But Obama's government power grabs have been sweeping and disarming the people will become necessary to maintain the masses. I understand that is a "out there" sounding theory but we have to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. 

With the very recent tragedy in Japan and the unrest in the middle east, many people have brought up to me the "end times" and "2012". Now I have stated before I do not think Barack Obama is the anti-christ, while he is a huge narcissist he is not going to bring on the apocalypse. But times will be hard, I have said that we will have to tighten our belts to get through, and with the Republicans looking totally impotent for the 2012 elections, the belts will get yanked a few more notches. America will prevail, times were hard after the Depression and we fought through, we will fight through again. As long as we are steadfast in our Faith and stick to the values that our Founding Fathers taught us America will survive and sun will shine again. 

"Government growing beyond our consent had become a lumbering giant, slamming shut the gates of opportunity, threatening to crush the very roots of our freedom. What brought America back? The American people brought us back -- with quiet courage and common sense; with undying faith that in this nation under God the future will be ours, for the future belongs to the free." - Ronald Reagan,1986
