An armed citizenry is the check against government power.  The power of arms rest with the People first, they charter a government to protect their rights from violation, particularly by government officers and employees.  No one can be trusted with absolute power, that is why power remains distributed and not to be centralized.

It is a poor declaration, leaving room for legislation to determine the 'lawful' uses, and thus also the 'unlawful' uses.

There should be no question about the intent of this declaration.  I would like to suggest amending the Bill of Rights' 2nd Amendment to include this verbiage!

Denise is right.  Concealing a weapon when you can carry openly implies deception.  While the rights of humankind are inalienable, the Constitutions charter the power of the State, and if the legislature puts in a restriction of carrying concealed arms, it becomes the law of the land, whether in accordance with natural right or not.

The same issues are before us today as 2000 years ago  the truth remains the same.

Fascism is to the Right of Communism but both are to the Left of Liberalism upon which the USA was founded.  The Left has co-opted the word liberal but it is anything but.  The Bill of Rights is the defense of Liberalism and prohibits the government from implementing the supremacy of the State over the individual.  The Left is authoritarian claiming to be liberal  nothing but wolves in sheep's clothing.  The Left wages war against the Free perpetually.

This really should be in the Preamble of the Constitution.

The day when a majority of individuals declares or acts as if it wants nothing from the government, declares that it will look after its own welfare and interests, then on that day the power elites will wage all out war!  When in history have a people been permitted to accede from their rulers?  The history of humankind is that of liberation from slavery in all its forms.  It is the nature of this world.  We are at war now  don't you know?!

This has been the challenge for a republican form of government.  Once freed from the obligations of the Crown, soon classes of people demand favor from government like they used to get from the Crown.  Toynbee's points are valid and always used to justify government intervention.  But give an inch and they take a mile.  Sooner or later career politicians and their bureaus figure out that solving problems puts them out of work  peace is unemployment.  So more rules and regulations are put into place to keep lawyers and judges flush  they are the most highly paid than all other occupations (banking law is the most lucrative).  The State endeavors to expand its power and army of employees and dependents.  With time, all republican principles are traded for arbitrary power with nothing but promises for a better future while Rome burns.  

Toynbee's argument needs further discussion before implementing 'new deals'  the causes are real but mainly misunderstood.

The facade is cracking.  Duping Americans is getting harder, and the authoritarians are pulling out the stops to transform the American republic into a totalitarian State.  The cracks started in the Bush years, and have now devolved into a straight-up coup of the inalienable rights of the People.  The Trump card has exposed the rigged game and the roaches are scattering in the light.  We must keep this up!

Or also, what of the practice of encouraging Somalis to apply for refugee status and put them all in one voting district eventually giving them a Somali mayor, congressman, attorney general, and essentially representing Somali interests?  Not to mention that there is an intention to colonize America with Islam (it is their creed) which is not just a religion but a central government  you can't have one without the other.  When is it considered an invasion?

How would the nation deal with say California opening its borders to Mexicans to settle en masse, enroll immediately in government assistance programs, and essentially establish a Mexican colony with allegiance to Mexican flags and Mexican culture?  Then vote themselves the money from their neighbors coffers?  The rights of man are for all people everywhere  but that does not grant the right to lay claim to others' labors, properties and ballot boxes.

The melting pot  all come out American.  ;-)

Sort of like natural born citizens attending school for 14 years to learn how to live in American society.  But the term is getting shorter and the education has turned into a racket, such that the American constitutional republic is being colonized by  authoritarian statists to which all are beholden to submit and must provide tribute for their own security.  Today, hoards of poor immigrants demand entry and subsistence from day one with no declaration to adopt the ways of an American sovereign, indeed to bring in their form of servitude instead.

Oh, to give this quote a thousand stars!

The American republican ideal has already been diluted, not with monarchists, but with statists that wish to live off the State.  Socialism is no different than monarchy in terms of the common man  he is beholden to the whims and passions of others.  The principle of America is to be free from the dictates of men and respected as the 'noblemen' we are, pillars of fellowship.  We have yet to see how it could be ...

That's a common story for most immigrants to the USA that I know.  I always thought that signing an oath to support and defend the Constitution should be a requirement to being an elector for any US office.  Why not, upon graduation from public school, sign the Declaration of Independence and make that declaration YOUR declaration?  Legal immigrants are so proud to become Americans — native-born Americans do not go through such a process and do not share the same understanding.

Conservatives step up!  The Leftists have no honor and seek power only.  This turning of the other cheek does not work in preserving of the republic.  Reformation is on the horizon again...

I search for Truth rather than God, because I don't know what God looks like.  But how does one evaluate 'truth'?  I take it further, in order to know the truth I must at the very least be truthful in my thoughts and speech  and call myself out when I tell myself something that is not true.  I find that 'truth process' to be liberating  what appears once the veil has fallen?  Clearing out all the lies I have been adhering to or propping up is empowering, like the lights have been turned on.  The truth is a revelation, and there is no getting the answer from someone else, ultimately that journey is your own. ;-)

Yet this constant press for 'diversity' appears to be in fact the imposition of 'uniformity' with huge swaths of dialogue categorized as 'hate speech' and therefore prohibited  the 'rainbow' is getting painted over, certain colors are not welcome.  It's not a rainbow anymore, it is a shackle plated with fool's gold.
