This was written during Obama’s reign, but is good advice concerning the 2nd amendment to keep in mind for any over-reaching President, including Trump or any to follow:
" Why, this is charming news to be hearing on a Saturday night.
On March 16th, President Obama signed a new Executive Order which expands upon a prior order issued in 1950 for Disaster Preparedness, and gives the office of the President complete control over all the resources in the United States in times of war or emergency.
The National Defense Resources Preparedness order gives the Executive Branch the power to control and allocate energy, production, transportation, food, and even water resources by decree under the auspices of national defense and national security. The order is not limited to wartime implementation, as one of the order’s functions includes the command and control of resources in peacetime determinations.
The text is here, along with some sobering commentary.
This is the reason for the 2nd amendment. We should immediately contact our local police departments and ask them what they plan to do if the government attempts to exercise this power without a true national emergency, as they will be the first ones to be told to clap the chains on the people. After that, we need to contact our political representatives and ask them the same question, and demand that they also contact those in authority in the military to determine where their loyalties will lie.
The President will try something, and we the people will need to demand that a stop be put to this before Obama fancies himself a northern version of Hugo Chavez."
