Dude. The 70's models are going for 50-100k.
If you don't mind my asking, what range should I expect to pay for the edition you got? I'm looking to go older school. I might even jump ship to a Blazer if I can't find a reasonable price for a Bronco...
A week or 2 ago, I heard Johnny Bravo (look him up on YouTube) say that the accumulation level for BTC is 20k. The other day I noticed it trading at ~20k and wished I had some cash to buy. Lost out on a 25% gain, and it's still rising right now.
The valid reason to be opposed to it is the crooked FBI and DC prosecutors.
There have been a number of prisoners freed from death row because of prosecutorial malfeasance.
I'm not saying I'm opposed to the death penalty. Your question was "give me reasons."
Ha! Yeah, the term "well-regulated" back then could also mean "in good working order." Obviously from the history of the text and debates of the act, the concept of "regulations" as in "laws" was the opposite of the 2nd Amendment's intended effect. "Shall not be infringed" means "shall not be infringed." The verbiage of the militia was meant as a backgrounder, and the "shall not be infringed" part was not worded in such a way as to be dependent on anything at all. The militia is you and me. The people. Every time the Constitution uses that term, "the People," it is intended as a stark contrast to the government, which the Constitution uses "the State" to label. This is extremely clear and unambiguous. "The right of The People to keep and bear arms" And since the context of that right was "militia," that meant that the arms the people have the right to are MILITARY WEAPONS. There was no such thing as "arms" that were not appropriate for military use.
You seem to be under the impression that I am attempting to give you false hope. On the contrary. Without Christ you have no hope.
"Unless you repent, you will all likewise perish." --Jesus (Luke 13:3)
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." --John Adams
If the Communists have successfully stripped the American people of their unifying faith in God, they have left us utterly defenseless to their destructive designs.
"At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide." --Abe Lincoln, Jan. 27, 1838
The globalists have managed to drop the most powerful nation in history to its knees by dividing its population against itself. If you think you can defeat a psy-op by making yourself cannon fodder for its ultimate goal of driving us into civil war, you're the greater fool than anyone who thinks they can sit on their hands and "hope" for a good result, which again, you seem to think I myself advocate.
I have never advocated doing nothing and hoping for a good result. What I am advocating is doing warfare on the actual battlefield we are being attacked on--the battlefield of ideas--truth and error. The god of this world is a liar and the father of lies (John 8:44). For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12).
Not only is advocating secession advocating civil war, but it is the EXACT idea that the globalist psy-op has planted into your mind! We have indeed been in a civil war for much longer than any of us realize. The war against us has been forced into the open; it is no longer hidden or quiet. The reason we are being provoked into action is because such action is precisely the goal of the deep state. They want an excuse to roll over us with the full military might at their disposal. Why might they have become so bold and brazen? Because they fear LOSING this war! If the people wake up and throw off their chains of fear and dependency, and if the people unite against them, they lose their power against us. But if the people remain divided and ignorant and driven by fear, the people will do the deep-state's work for them.
You may think you're a patriot. But if you are driven by fear and hopelessness and frustration and hate, if you are advocating the division of this country rather than uniting together, you are playing right into the enemy's hand and are part of the PROBLEM rather than the solution. The solution is the renewal of the minds of the people and the unification of the people in the Spirit of God, Who is the only power capable of such renewal or unification.
You realize why the US was such an unapproachable superpower up until this point, and why the globalists have hesitated up until this point to make such bold, frontal attacks on us?
Because they first had to weaken our spirit and our religious unity. That having been accomplished, we are no more virtuous nor protected by God than the Nazi regime, which was surrounded and decimated and humiliated to this very day by the forces of global Communism.
Taking up arms against [them] without first having the blessings of God is doomed to the very same fate. We will not and cannot prevail against the Lord of This World without the sanction of the King of Heaven. But once we have the blessings of heaven, all of Hell will but in vain rage against us.
God is not a LARP. You can misplace your hope wherever you wish, but God wins. And if the world is swirling down the drain, He is your only hope and strong foundation. But if the world is to have any hope, it is certainly misplaced if not in Him.
I am certainly not in favor of the violent taking possession of that to which they have no rightful claim; and if violent defense is necessary, it will be employed. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
The mainstream media has been exposed as a fraud.
The 3-letter agencies have been exposed as traitorous and criminal.
The globalists have been exposed as godless terrorists.
The outcome is certain. Yet you are panicking over the death-throes of the enemy.
You know I'm not evil; you know I'm telling you the truth. You are captured, still, by [their] system of fear, and you cannot bring yourself to admit it. Your hopelessness has seduced you into falling into [their] trap and exposing yourself to [their] endgame.
The winning side is winning. You just don't see it yet.
I hope I did not imply that doing nothing is a winning strategy. What I am saying is that we should fight on the correct battlefield using the correct weapons. Especially what I am saying is that whenever we obey God's specific leading, He is going to immediately step in with His presence and will ultimately, if not immediately, provide the promised victory in whatever the situation happens to be. Obedience is the key. How can we obey if we do not hear the command?
That is indeed exactly what many are saying about the "boomer" generation and the church in America. We allowed ourselves to be cowed by false virtue, by social justice instead of God's justice.
And so if we must win or lose by the culture, then we must fight to regain and restore the culture. Which is, like it or not, a spiritual battle. And when fighting a spiritual battle, one finds one's own mind to be his more formidable enemy.
“To conquer oneself is the best and noblest victory; to be vanquished by one's own nature is the worst and most ignoble defeat.” --Plato
We can not profess to offer anything to anybody else that we do not possess in ourselves.
They were enslaved by their fellow Africans and sold to the slave traders. Slavery was part of their culture. They did consent. They were part of that culture.
Christians in the West were the first humans to outlaw slavery and the first to enshrine human rights into a legal framework. Christianity is the cultural bulwark against slavery in all its forms.
Notice how Communism prevailed in USSR and China: (I edited to add "Envy" as #2)
Envy (Marxism is predicated on it, and it is spread via propaganda)
Why does Communism consider Christianity its primary target? Because a people whose minds are free are not subject to propaganda, they have learned that envy is a sin, and because a people who worship God will not bow to the state as their god.
The transhumanists want to rule over us as gods. They are Luciferians. They revel in blood and human misery. Only through fear can they exercise authority.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It requires eternal diligence. The contest set before us is not a new one. As always, the choice is ours to make. As always, God is showing us the futility of leaning on our own wisdom and understanding. As always He waits for us to submit to Him. Once we let Jesus in, we will find ourselves at our desired destination. As always, the true battlefield is the mind.
Who said anything about prophesy?
We cannot un-invent technology. We cannot control human nature. If we are to survive as a species, we must ascend culturally: a culture of free men who are not ruled by fear and therefore do not render consent to slavery.
This is indeed a spiritual battle, and it is not for the faint of heart.
You first, faggot.
