“When are you all going to start standing up for the majority? And here’s who the majority is. I’m the majority…
“…we’re the first ones taxed and the last ones considered and the first ones punished when something like this happens because our rights are the ones being taken away.”
That was part of a beautifully delivered commentary by law-abiding everyman Mark Robinson at a Greensboro, North Carolina, city council meeting.
Robinson’s “I am Spartacus” moment was in response to a debate over whether to cancel a local gun show in the wake of the Parkland school shooting.
“We demonize the police…and we make the criminals into victims and we’re talking about restricting guns?” Robinson continued.
I want to live in Mr. Robinson’s neighborhood.
He laid out the bill of particulars for the people who play the rules only to get fleeced by the Political Ruling Class they finance and ridiculed in the process.
Most importantly, Mark Robinson reminded us that this grand experiment in representative republican government rises or falls based on the civic engagement of the Mark Robinsons in America.
It’s not enough to applaud Mark Robinson. We must emulate him.
I am Mark Robinson.
