A friend of mine once told me to “Shoot for the moon. If you miss & hit a star, you’re still doing alright.” Fabian leftists understand this premise all too well. They’ve been using it for decades.
It’s one small step at a time until you wake up one day, stripped of all of your liberty, homeless & naked in the unrecognizable nation of your birth.
Where are they using this tactic now, you ask? In the anti-liberty, gun control debate. Not only are they using this tactic, but they are employing a form of the Hegelian Dialectic to the situation. To wit:
Thesis: “Guns are dangerous. We must ban most of them.”
Antithesis: “That’s freaking dumb. Not happening.”
Synthesis: “Well, we have to do something, let’s agree to these more sensible items.”
Then, down the road, they move another step further, until they have reached their objective of total disarmament.
Right now, they have a wish list on the table which would make American citizens vulnerable to immediate tyranny if passed and allowed by the citizenry to stand.
We, the loyal opposition, will demand that these items not even be considered.
Then, the democrats will come back with a request for the simple, “common sense” solutions of
2) Ban of online ammunition sales
3) Tax or fees on ammunition to make it’s purchase cost-prohibitive
4) Universal background checks for ALL sales (including ammo)
5) A ban of all large magazine to some arbitrary figure like 7 rounds
Each of these steps will only further erode our rights. Call you congresswhores tomorrow and DEMAND that they not give even one single inch! NOT. ONE. INCH.
