In our world today, we are constantly bombarded by the hot topic of the day. Gun crimes, the “Fiscal Cliff,” gay marriage, etc. I think it is imperative to look at the numbers and statistics on whatever is the hot topic of the day so that the facts can overrule emotions. Emotions are very dangerous to freedom, and the Constitution.
There are two topics that pop up steadily throughout our culture. The first is gun control. Every time some idiot decides he wants to be infamous, and kills innocent people, the liberals come out of the wood work saying we need stronger gun laws. Liberals never take into account that when Cain killed Abel, he didn’t have an AR-15 with a 30 round clip. He likely used a rock or a stick. People don’t need guns to kill people, they need an evil heart. What our government is seeking is total control. I have many guns in my home, but have never used one to kill anyone else. I have them for protection from intruders, and protection from an out of control government if they threaten my home and family. The liberals know they can use raw emotion to change legislation, and steal our freedoms. If laws were properly enforced, and punishment was swiftly and correctly administered, our culture would be much safer, and have much more freedom.
The other hot topic is abortions. Abortion is nothing more than legalized mass murder that is mostly funded by people who believe it immoral. Try to remember that at 16 weeks, a baby in the mother’s womb has fingers, finger nails, toes, and fingerprints. Even though all this is true, over 62,000 babies have been aborted this year after 16 weeks. Now, the liberals all say that it is the woman’s body, so it is her right to choose, yet they have to control our guns because some psycho CHOOSES to shoot somebody. The use of the word choice is conveniently moved around in our modern culture to suit peoples morality.
Here are the cold hard facts. Just over 9000 murders with firearms were committed in 2002 as reported by the UN. There are over 1.6 million abortions per year in the U.S. Four in ten accidental pregnancies end in abortion. Planned Parenthood (funded by our taxes) have performed 319,745 abortions to date this year. Abortions this year due to rape or incest are 11,414. So, here is my argument. If liberals want to justify abortions by saying the law works due to rape and incest then lets cut out the other 300,000 abortions done this year, and only allow for rape and incest, and then we can have the moral discussion of right to life no matter the circumstance. Instead of having this discussion liberals would rather focus on 9000 murders by gun, even though rape and incest kill more babies than even guns do.
I said all that to say this. Both of these subjects are volatile and create a wide range of powerful emotions in people, but if everyone would look at the actual data, and then dust off their moral compass this nation might have a chance to survive as a constitutional republic. If we stay focused on politics, emotion, and continue to rely on others for our education, then this nation as we knew it growing up is doomed.
