Obama presidency triggered a 755% increase in number of militias

There is no First Amendment without the Second Amendment.

Alan Caruba reminds us that the first Americans won their independence from England with the force of arms. It was, in fact, a British effort in 1775 to confiscate military arms they believed were stored in Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, which sparked the Revolutionary War.
The Founding Fathers were so aware of the need for an armed citizenry that, after ensuring freedom of religion, speech, press and the right to peacefully assemble in the First Amendment, the Second guaranteed their right to bear arms.
That right is crucial because it’s the last line that stands between the people and a tyrannical government.  Indeed, wherever authoritarian regimes were established in the last century, they first took away this right and then proceeded to kill, with impunity and abandonment, those deemed enemies of the state.
That is why the right to bear arms is the bete noir of the Left, who have tried for years to chip away at the Second Amendment. Now, with their man in the White House and majority control in both houses of Congress, they are poised to launch their concerted attack against gun rights. See examples, here.

At this point in American history, the Obama administration constitutes a threat to the Constitution in general and the Second Amendment in particular.
But more and more Americans are taking matters into their own hands.
At the end of 2011, the FBI released data  showing that violent crime in the United States fell 6.4% in the first half of this year compared to the same time period in 2010., and property crime also fell 3.7%. But gun sales have gone up ever since Obama entered the White House.
More than 80,000,000 Americans are gun owners.
And the numbers have increased with the new year. As an example, it was reported on February 19, 2012, that applications for a Georgia Weapon Carry license are rising at such a rate that applications could nearly double 2011’s numbers by the end of this year.
The election of Obama in 2008 also triggered an explosion in the number of armed militias and patriot groups in the United States.
The left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center reported in its annual tally of so-called “anti-government organizations” that there were 149 militias and patriot groups when Obama took office, compared to more than 1,200 today — an increase of 755%!
Read more on the militias here, or read the SPLC report titled “Year in Hate” (that SPLC is so objective and nonpartisan! LOL) here.
Or better yet, read Sage’s exposé of the ungodly, conservatives-hating Southern Poverty Law Center, here.

At least Obama has had a positive influence on one segment of the economy.

And the one segment that will make a difference…

And let’s not forget the latest SPLC “hate” crisis… the men’s movement “Manosphere” on the Internet. “The so-called “manosphere” is peopled with hundreds of websites, blogs and forums dedicated to savaging feminists in particular and women, very typically American women, in general. Although some of the sites make an attempt at civility and try to back their arguments with facts, they are almost all thick with misogynistic attacks that can be astounding for the guttural hatred they express.” https://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelligence-report/browse-all-issues/2012/spring/misogyny-the-sites Boo hoo… disagreeing with left/liberal feminist anti-male rhetoric is right up there with the KKK, neonazis and Ron Paul fans for… Read more »
