Podcast: Play in new window
I didn’t want to record this episode. As you know, I try to keep my opinions to myself when it comes to politics. But, sometimes the very thing you are interested in becomes political. With everything that is going on with the recent special elections in Virginia, I can no longer avoid the topic.
Today I’m touching on gun control. But this isn’t the same rant you see all over gun boards everywhere else. I want to touch on how this happened, and what you should keep in mind for your own battles in the future.

An Appeal to Heaven
Let me be brief. There are not detailed show notes or crazy history lessons here. Just a call to action.
Virginia has fallen to some powerful political forces who are not on our side. They did it with dirty political tricks, and they are not going to play nice in the future.
I don’t want to lament over anything. It’s done. What I’m interested in is the root causes and what you and I can do in the future to stop this from happening in your state.
And make no mistake, this is coming to your state. They have a strategy and process down, now, and they want to keep the momentum going.
The thing to take away from this is that the forces arranged against us are using the ignorance of the general population to their advantage. And we’re letting them do it.
By staying quiet, keeping to ourselves, and not making our interests known, we are ceding the message to the other side.
An Appeal to Heaven
The founders were no stranger to John Locke. In fact, he was the inspiration for much of the Declaration of Independence. The phrase, “Appeal to Heaven” means that when the mechanisms of man are no longer providing justice, there is always a higher authority.
I propose that we use the old Pine Tree Flag, originally commissioned for George Washington’s cruisers, as the symbol for our resistance.
What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
Great podcast with inconvenient truths. Great use of the C.S. Lewis and Ronald Reagan injects
Thanks for listening!
Just had a chance to listen to the podcast… Very good… Thanks for taking the time to do it….
I’ve seen that they’re talking about cutting your electricity, etc, in VA if you don’t comply…
This gov is really looking for trouble if all this stuff passes….
Hey Paul, I saw that rumor as well but the source is questionable. That being said, I think most of us saw what happened during the “red flag” kerfluffle in New York a few weeks ago and how LE handled power, internet, and cell service. It’s worth taking notes about such events, and amateur radio looks like a great option in such circumstances. It’s monitored for sure, but it’s much more difficult to stop.
