Politically Incorrect Zone- Unification Saga

MUST follow entire Bill-of-Rights

By Kevin Harris

Political correctnessThis week’s column is the final entry in “Kevin’s Unification Saga,” for lack of a better term. It continues the theme of defeating tyranny against citizens by our government, by citizens boldly coming together in ways never seen before.

The idea is simple. Americans of all political affiliations, races, religions, financial classes and geographic regions all agreeing to act in support of a single goal: To fight Federal, state and local government when they act in opposition to the Bill of Rights. But folks, this is not as easy as it may sound. Because, here’s the catch…

Every single member of this “club” has to agree to fight in support of EVERY one of the ten Amendments in the Bill of Rights – even the ones they disagree with! For example, conservative members have to fight against the Patriot Act and the NSA in support of the Fourth Amendment. Likewise, Liberal members would have to fight in support of gun rights in support of the Second Amendment. You get the idea. But the concept is still very basic; that Liberty is not a popularity contest, and that the Constitution is not a dinner buffet where you choose a few items for your plate and ignore the rest.

If you’re not willing to grant Liberty to those you disagree with, how on Earth can you then expect those who disagree with you to grant YOU Liberty? Only by exercising true tolerance for each other can we save this Republic, folks. Because trust me on this – our enemy is unified and its resolve is clear.

Oh, and by the way. I vote that we call this club these United States of America.
