RESIST...Before it is too late!

If you tell a lie enough times, it becomes the truth. This horrible lie has been told by the ATF, Attorney General Holder, Secretary of State Clinton, Mexico's ambassador to the US, and now Mexico's President is saying it. These are learned, well informed people, correct? Surely they have reviewed the statistics before making a huge pronouncement such as this? Surely each of these persons/groups has a huge staff checking the facts for them. Surely a brief was put together for them before they made these statements? It would be hard to believe that these fine folks are not privy to the truth.

So where does that leave us? Well, maybe I am a little more cynical and paranoid than the average bear, but it seems to me that maybe, just maybe, we are being lied to.
Why would any government do that? Well, folks, I am more and more inclined to believe that our government will use any excuse to disarm it's citizens. You see, when we are armed, we are citizens, when they take away our last option at dissent, we become subjects.

A wise old saying goes something like this "When it comes to dissenting, citizens have 3 boxes they can count on. First is the ballot box, they can vote against those whose tyranny they oppose. If that fails, there is the soap box, they can stand on it and voice their dissent against unfair leaders. The final box is the cartridge box. When all else fails, citizens can take up arms and physically oppose their government."

Well, America, we failed at the ballot box, and are stuck for 4 years. The current administration and the main stream media is doing their best to discredit and vilify anyone who gets on the soap box. And with these lies, they seek to take from your hand the last resort against tyranny, your right to resist.

Wake up America.
From Fox News- Mexican President Felipe Calderon on Wednesday made an assertion -- cited in the past by Mexico's U.S. ambassador and even by U.S. leaders, but debunked as a myth -- that 90 percent of the weapons intercepted in Mexico come from the U.S.
"I know that this is a very sensitive issue," Calderon said in an interview with NBC News. He also said that he will tell President Obama during his visit Thursday to Mexico City that the U.S. needs to clean up its drug problem if Mexico is going to be successful in its battle against the cartels.
"The source of the problem was the huge demand for drugs in the United States the largest market in the world for drugs," he said. "The United States, you have a lot of traffic of drugs. You have a lot of distribution of drugs. You have a lot of corruption as well."
Calderon's comments came days after Auturo Sarukhan, the Mexican ambassador to the United States, appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation" and made the same claim that 90 percent of the weapons intercepted in Mexico come from the U.S.
FOX News debunked that claim in a report earlier this month that found only 17 percent of guns found at Mexican crime scenes have been traced to the U.S., though even that figure is an imprecise estimate.
Calderon and Sarukhan aren't the only one to cite this myth. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, California Sen. Diane Feinstein and Willliam Hoover, assistant director for field operations at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, have all said that 90 percent of weapons used to commit crimes in Mexico come from the U.S.
An ATF spokeswoman told earlier this month in a clarification of the statistic used by her own agency's assistant director "that over 90 percent of the traced firearms originate from the U.S." But a large percentage of the guns recovered in Mexico do not get sent back to the U.S. for tracing because it is obvious from their markings that they do not come from the U.S.
"Not every weapon seized in Mexico has a serial number on it that would make it traceable, and the U.S. effort to trace weapons really only extends to weapons that have been in the U.S. market," Matt Allen, special agent of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), told FOX News earlier this month.
Sarukhan has claimed that Mexico seizes 2,000 guns a day from the United States, or 730,000 a year. But the official statistic from the Mexico attorney general's office says Mexico seized 29,000 weapons in all of 2007 and 2008.
On "Face the Nation," host Bob Schieffer asked Sarukhan for evidence to support his claim that most of the weapons seized are coming from the United States.
"The data we have is the one that we've been sharing with our counterparts in the U.S. government, ATF and the Justice Department, and other agencies that have been working with us to determine where those guns are coming from," Sarukhan replied.
For example, Sarukhan cited the Mexican border town of Reynosa where he said more than 250 assault weapons and half a million rounds of ammo were seized in November.
"These had just crossed over the border from the United States in Mexico," he said. "By tracing these weapons, by looking at the types of weapons, we're determining that most of these weapons are coming from the United States."
