Sharpton also said, “people do not have the right to unregulated rights.” It’s a “regulated” right to board an airplane only after showing I.D., he points out. When it comes to voter I.D. however, it’s an unnecessary regulation because there is no voter fraud, never mind that most of us boarding airplanes are not terrorists. Our voting rights are far more sacred than our entry onto airplanes, as the only job the government has is to keep us safe, and without free and fair elections, government can take away our voting rights. Just sayin’…
“First of all, if the government were to come to disarm you, you would not be able to use an automatic weapon to defend yourself. Let’s be serious. We’re in a world of drones now so the Second Amendment would not help you in that area. It is absurd to try to cite that.”
“People do not have the right to unregulated rights in this country,” Sharpton continued. “And I think that for those that use the Second Amendment [they] are conceding that they have no argument on why you need a magazine with 100 rounds of ammunition or 30 rounds of ammunition.” Source: Daily Caller
These comments were made a little more than a year ago during the controversy over how many rounds a magazine can hold. In the same interview, the head of the National Urban League, Marc Morial, said “the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are not absolutes.”
“The Constitution and the Bill of Rights are not absolute. One cannot yell fire in a crowded theater and hide behind the First Amendment,” said Morial
Reuters is reporting that B. Hussein Obama has spent the week commemorating progress in the Civil Rights Movement. No he hasn’t. He’s been politicking [with Sharpton] in an election year, trying to stir up his base by labeling his opponents as racists, against him and his policies, and by extension, the minority citizen voters.
They’ve just reported how Obama “sharply criticized Republicans for leading efforts in some parts of the country to prevent citizens from voting.” The fact that he criticized them is factual, but they are presenting his argument as truthful, which it is not. They are thereby helping to perpetuate the false narrative.
Republicans aren’t trying to keep any citizens from voting. They are merely trying to make sure that only citizens vote. That is as it should be. Source: The Gop Daily Dose
Really, getting serious here, We the People are our only protection. We’ve seen that our elected officials will not protect us, so we go to the ballot box and pray.
