SUBJECT: So maybe we should chat?
Had a great exchange with Lt. Hounsley. I really appreciated his courtesy and his frankness. As Ken pointed out the concerns I expressed are not normally considered a local police matter. The key emphasis is on the word “normal” as these are hardly normal times.
Now I can begin to fully appreciate just how things were in 1776. Now I can begin to get the picture that it is each man for himself and responsible to protect his family and property.
I have got to tell you Paul, it is a tough decision to consider arming myself, at this stage, in a community like Fountain Valley. Let’s see how do they put it now, “A nice place to live.” We might have to change the slogan a bit to “Once was a nice place to live”
What is really sad is that for about the last 40 years I have not felt the need to do so. It was just fairly recently I have begun to feel threatened by my government. Sad to say, I no longer feel secure in pursuing my Constitutionally guaranteed rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
You know Paul it is not the politics, that is no problem, there will always be different points of view. The enemy who is now considered “domestic” (you remember that from the Oath…right Paul?) unbeknownst to us, has spent at least the last 40 years infiltrating all areas of our society. As a consequence, the line between politics and the rule of law have become so blurred one can no longer make the clear distinction. This was deliberate Paul. This is exactly why your folks do not see their responsibility as clearly as they should. If you think back, it was not too long ago that the local constabulary was the sole authority and the law in the community. So when did that change? Maybe an idea worthy of reconsideration?
Acting in a manner that would appear to be politically based, the domestic enemies of the Constitution are acting out an agenda to subvert our democracy to communism. Perhaps you find these words harsh, but I can ensure you if you take the time to analyze current events you will understand the situation. Just because you may be ignorant of these activities does not mean they are not happening.
So this then is the source of my concern. You can confirm theses conclusions for yourself just by observing members of our Government. I am not sure what you would call it, but when the people who are sworn to uphold the law and the Constitution refuse to do so that sounds an alarm to me. Add to that situation, the only people I can turn to tell me my safety is not their job, then I get the picture Paul. I get the picture.
The picture becomes very clear that I can not rely on those in whom I was led to believe I could entrust my safety. Then it appears that I am obligated to act in my own defense; I am sure you understand. In fact the second amendment demands this. For your review I have included the founding documents.
At this point I am fully cognizant that you have most probably classified me as a nut case; that is probably true and a fair assessment. Who else would pul everything on the line to protect a crummy piece of parchment, sitting in a cabinet several thousand miles away, on which are written some equally rambling obscure sounding words from some equally old guys over the hill.
We hold these truths to be self‐evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.
But You know chief, I get the impression you are a very impressive dude. Unless I am wrong about your style, I suspect you are a leading edge free thinker who would prefer to be on the leading edge. That being the case then maybe we should chat; do lunch. I’ll buy. <G>
Listen Paul, I have no law enforcement experience, no legal experience and no formal education and no credentials of any kind. But as I pointed out to Lt. Hounsley, I did not just fall off a tomato truck. You guys bring the knowledge of the law to the table and I can help folks learn how to get around the web. By adding valuable insight into your expertise you just may be able to create a one of a kind Police service even beyond the already incredibly advanced organization you have already created.
Oh yes….Just for some background. As you can tell I am quite serious about this.
If you have any interest in pursuing my offer, please let me know when you would like to meet for lunch. I think I have demonstrated my willingness to help the FVPD on several occasions. The rest is up to you.
