This is the first in series of articles discussing Mr. Romney’s Constitutional crisis. I had promised an article that would concentrate on Romneycare and the devastation that has been wrought in the state of Massachusetts as a result of Romneycare being instituted here in my home state. However, delving into the record of this man who managed my state for a few short years, I found that we cannot even begin to scratch the surface of the story without finding multiple layers that are every bit as important to tell as the unconstitutional Romneycare tale. It is a lot like peeling an onion, a rotten and nasty onion. I just keep finding more horror as I go.
This post will concentrate on Mr. Romney’s unconstitutional view towards the Second Amendment. The right to keep and bear arms in this country is a fundamental God given natural right and Mr. Romney seems to believe that he should be the sole authority that shall grant you and your family the privilege to own the weaponry of your choice. Because, you know, if you’re a responsible law abiding citizen who has jumped through all of the hoops and paid a great deal of your money to possess a License to Carry in this Marxist land of MA, you still don’t really possess the discernment to understand which weapons you should actually possess. You’re not responsible enough for that. Your Government will make that determination for you.
I have to begin here with just a little background on Mr. Romney. I am so tired of hearing about Romney and how MA is ‘his’ state and what he has accomplished in ‘his’ state of MA. I am going to put this boldly now, so there can be no mistake: Mitt Romney is not from Massachusetts! From Wikipedia: Mitt Romney was raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and later served as a Mormon missionary in France. He was the 70th Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007. (I can tell you unequivocally that a great deal of that time was spent on other pursuits than managing this state-that might be a positive thing since when he was focused on MA, he was mostly focused on destroying it. But we’ll get to all of that in future articles, I promise!) Let’s just say that Mr. Romney blatantly used the one state out of maybe three in the entire nation where he would find the appropriate stepping stone to the Republican nomination for President which he has set as his number one bucket list item. His eyes have not left that prize for much of anything since it took shape in his ambitious, greedy little heart. The only other pursuit that has managed to get his attention has been the padding of his substantial portfolio. I am willing to concede that perhaps people fall in there somewhere amongst his utmost concerns, but I am willing to put money on the fact that the number of people would not number more than twenty, with most of those being direct relatives.
I am a licensed gun owner here in state. I would like to claim the second amendment as my sole license; however, here in MA there is a process. We have gun control laws in place that would rival the size of the book “War and Peace” if one were to print it out. I won’t bore you with the details. For those who live in non-totalitarian states, please do check out part of the statutes here: http://www.malegislature.gov/Laws/SessionLaws/Acts/1998/Chapter180 it is only the beginning – there’s more to it if you care to get completely discouraged about this state. Just pick a year from the drop down menu. Prepare to be utterly confused and disgusted at governmental over reaching on steroids. But I am focusing here on Mr. Romney and his misguided intentions. So, let us look at who indeed believes he knows more than our founding fathers did about rights as they pertain to gun-ownership.
