Random Rumbleings

If you want to reasonably have no fear of speaking your true thoughts, you must have an equalizer to ensure that you can defend your beliefs. Bravado is all well and good, indeed, a healthy ego is necessary in being competant to defending oneself, but bravado will only carry you so far. In the end you also need a means to back up the bravado.

In the United States, we do this by living under a system of law where all are judged equally, and by allowing free citizens the means to defend themselves against those that would disregard the law. In the end, true freedom is only achieved, and maintained, by those willing to fight for it, at the cost of their own life, if need be. The Rule of Law is the equalizer, and the Second Amendment is the gaurentor of the rule of law.
