All power flows from the barrel of a gun

In this country the people have the guns. This gives them the ultimate power. And this is likely to be confirmed on Friday by the SCOTUS. That isn’t the case in some places:

Robert Mugabe gave warning yesterday that he would not cede power if he loses next week’s election to the Opposition in his most explicit statement yet of his refusal to respect the result.

State-controlled media reported his comments to supporters at an election rally, the latest in a series of increasingly menacing threats as Zimbabwe counts down to the June 27 presidential run-off poll. Mr Mugabe’s military-backed regime has been carrying out a campaign of violence aimed at wiping out the opposition vote.

“We fought for this country, and a lot of blood was shed,” Mr Mugabe told his supporters. “We are not going to give up our country because of a mere X. How can a ballpoint fight with a gun?”

Good question. Ask that the next time someone tells you that we don’t need the 2nd Amendment because we have the 1st Amendment.

  1. No, twerp, I said “POLITICAL power flows from the barrel of a gun.” And Huey Newton and Bobby Seale took up that cry when they formed the Black Panthers. I’ll bet you didn’t like it one bit when we three were saying it, now didja?

    And if you really believe that all power or even just all political power flows from the barrel of a gun, you’d better be glad you never had to liberate India — you’d be roasting in hell with the blood of millions on your hands. You talk a big talk, but have you ever put your life on the line with a gun in your hand in a REAL revolution like I did?

    No, I didn’t think so. My Gawd, but you people are so stoopid.

    But hey, 1A and all that. Keep up your mad ravings. I see you have all sorts of comments to your little post. Let’s see . . . this comment makes, um, . . . one.
