    The July 4, 2016 podcast was truly fabulous. I, like all other US Army officers, swore an oath to defend the constitution with my life. That oath is never ending. The oath was and is not an oath to protect our government. The oath is to protect the constitution against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC. Let me be clear that there are millions of military veterans who will take up arms if necessary.

    I only hope and pray that Obama never gives the order to have our current active duty military move against American citizens to confiscate arms because they will be treated the same as General Gage and his forces were. Certainly I would hope that our military would refuse to obey such an order.

    Don’t forget the concurrent seizing of powder and disabling of arms at Williamsburg, the capital of Virginia, where Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Patrick Henry and others met for discussions. This pushed them to hold the meeting at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Richmond (out of the reach of Lord Dunmore) where the British oppression was discussed and Patrick Henry declared, “Give me liberty or give me death!”

    There’s just one problem with this ! While the article is probably true, the conservatives fought to CONSERVE British rule and wore red to show support for the redcoats ! It must have been progressive liberals who wore blue and fought for liberty and progress, that would have included not following British rule !

      WRONG and IGNORANT. The War of Independence was a revolution prevented, not made. It was a war to CONSERVE the traditional rights of Englishmen. The colonists were not claiming anything new in terms of natural rights. Read the Declaration of Independence, actually read it, please! It was the British oppressors who were the true innovators, breaking with traditional natural rights.

    This is my first podcast I’ve listened too and not only was it accurate and amazing to listen to,i just wanted to say that the crooked government will go to any length too try and take our rights to bear arms i feel that all these mass shootings aren’t just some random ignorant person committing these crimes but they’re indeed paid by our crooked government officials to make it so convincing that our 2nd Amendment be taken away “Because of all the gun violence that’s happening currently every single day” and I know that there’s got to be way more people like myself who are smarter and pay attention to everything around us that realizes how all of a sudden when our rights to bear arms is at steak coincidentally there’s all of these gun violence, That’s just ignorant because if We the people don’t want to lose our rights why would we do something so ignorant as to mass shootings harming people when we want the right to bear arms?! only an ignorant corrupt government would be beetle headed to think violence would be a way to show we want the right to bear arms just stupid and we should all stand together so our 2nd amendment isn’t violated.
