Jan Morgan: My American Dream

Jan Morgan: My American Dream

Most people might describe the American Dream in terms of career success, monetary wealth, or accumulation of things. For me, it is not that simple.

My American Dream is to wake up one day to discover I no longer have to fight. My dream is a victorious end to the constant attacks on our Constitution and Bill of Rights by our own citizens and an out-of-control government.

Our Founders envisioned this internal war that many citizens today fail to see or refuse to fight. Upon leaving the Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin was asked by a group of citizens what sort of government our delegates had created. His response was, “a Republic, if you can keep it.”  Though our Founders had succeeded in establishing a Constitutional Republic, Franklin knew, keeping it would be an ongoing challenge, dependent on the active and informed involvement of the people.

Trump supporter: Armed club-goer could have stopped Fla. massacre

Talking Drones and Guns During Anti-Gun Pope’s Visit…

Talking Drones and Guns During Anti-Gun Pope’s Visit…

So.. they wanted me to talk about the FAA’s new “drone free zones” for the Pope’s visit ton Fox News.. I was thankful because the last thing I want to do is discuss a Pope that I do not respect.
In case you haven’t heard this Pope who says you cant be a Christian and own guns.

I guess he failed to read Luke 22:36-38 where Christ tells his followers to sell their cloak to buy a sword. The sword of biblical times is equivalent to the gun of today and the point Christ was making is that you should have a weapon to defend your life.

I also find it hypocrital of him to tell the rest of us who can’t afford armed body guards that we have to walk around disarmed defenseless victims waiting to happen…. and … that if we do purchase a gun for self defense that we aren’t Christians.

So… I get to talk about drones.. and of course, because some folks are shooting them down, I was asked if that was legal..
Well.. of course its not.. according to the FAA..
However.. what I said next about how people in the south are dealing with privacy invading drones with cameras hovering over their private property…changed the tone of the show..:)

I guess Fox folks in New York find our ‘southern way’ of dealing with things… a bit… entertaining. 🙂
