Common Sense Applied
Do you ever find yourself “connecting the dots?” You know, those times when thoughts are swirling around in your brain? Below are a few of mine as I try to make sense of things. The week’s events caused me to sit down and just let my fingers write and type. I find that we make sense of things when we put our thoughts on paper. Maybe you have a few of your own common sense applications. You can join the discussion on Facebook and add your thoughts. We have some great conversations there. The goal is to keep the discussion respectful and educational rather than the usual venting that occurs around such issues. Here are some thoughts about gun laws, term limits, justice, and matters of life and the heart:
Gun laws are laws.
Gun control means gun laws.
Lawbreakers do not obey laws.
Unsuspected killers and criminals do not obey laws.
Therefore, gun control laws cannot control unsuspected killers, criminals, and lawbreakers.
In a Representative Republic, legislators serve for a time, then return to home, family, jobs, and private life.
Our Founders created a Representative Republic, intending that citizens serve as legislators, then return to private life, not make a career out of being a legislator. And, they did.
Therefore, term limits for legislators would make us more like the Representative Republic our Founders intended.
In an American trial, the law and the facts are judged by the Judge and Jury.
If the law is determined to be a good law, and the facts are clear,
the more likely justice is to be served.
The truth always comes to light.
Freedom isn’t free.
Peace is a matter of the heart.
Love is a decision.
Attitude is everything.
Never give up.
