Stuck in the Middle

I remember a song by the group Stealers Wheel called “Stuck in the Middle with You.” The refrain went something like this:

“Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.”

Well, considering the geographical location of our home, America, we are in between two other nations in North America: Canada and Mexico. And, based upon what is happening, we are stuck in the middle of dire insanity.

To the north, in Canada, we just had the Prime Minister there, Justin Trudeau, assert that Canada is on the path to disarming its citizens, in essence turning them into subjects. Trudeau has announced that his government will be pursuing a path towards ending sales, buying, transfers, and import of firearms into Canada. Of course, that means the criminal element will secure the means to carry out violence against unarmed individuals. As well, Trudeau wants to implement a gun buyback program, limit law-abiding legal gun owners to possessing five rounds — bullets, per weapon — and increase penalties for non-compliance. We are talking about 14 years imprisonment.

History has taught us what happens when a nation’s population is rendered defenseless. Recent actions in Canada have shown us the level the government there will take in order to restrict the right of the people to petition their government for the redress of grievances. Trudeau actually froze personal financial accounts.

To the south, in Mexico, we find a failed state that is ruled by non-state transnational narco-criminal terrorists who are facilitating the drug, human, and sex trafficking crises America faces. We are experiencing a pure invasion of our Republic, in numbers that are just unconscionable, in the millions, with no sign of it ending. We are not dealing with an immigration issue on our southern border. We are engaged in a deadly insurgency that our government fails to recognize, certainly not rectify.

In the same vein of the song by Stealers Wheel, we have socialist tyrants to the north and narco-criminal terrorists to the south. And here we are, stuck in the middle with the most unconstitutional presidential administration we have ever encountered. Joe Biden has abdicated his constitutional duty to protect the sovereignty of this nation. Biden has also reiterated, on several occasions, that the Second Amendment in our Bill of Rights is not absolute. In fact, he believes no amendment to the constitution is absolute.

We find ourselves stuck in the middle with clowns, jokers, totalitarians, tyrants, and Marxists. How do we overcome this situation? Stand with the Constitution of these United States of America, support and defend it, against all enemies, foreign, and domestic. That is what we do at the American Constitutional Rights Union; and, that is what you can do in joining us.

Steadfast and Loyal.
