Doomsday PrepperJust days after appearing on the National Geographic TV Show Doomsday Preppers, a prepper from Tennessee has been declared Mentally Defective and his guns have been seized by the government. The Prepper, David Sarti is a character to say the least, but his story is somewhat disturbing and should be a wake up call for everyone.

Personally I think these shows are designed to make these people look crazy. Whether his appearance on the show played into Mr. Sarti’s diagnosis isn’t yet clear, but apparently the State believed he was a danger to himself after a local doctor insisted that Mr. Sarti was suicidal.

Mr. Sarti denies the charges and insists that he told the doctor he was a Christian and his belief made it impossible for him to commit suicide.
Here is his story:

    I agree. These shows are 100% made to make preppers look like wackjobs. I also think this is done for a greater plan which includes taking away our guns through loopholes like this.

    If they can convince the masses that prepping is crazy they can declare us all defective. Get ready for the gun grab.

      I could not agree more.

      • Tony's Take says:

        The judge took one “doctor’s” word for it? What’s wrong with this picture? The Dr. may be the one who is nuts. Like the other liberals, he probably thinks defending yourself should be against the law.

        • hhr says:

          Was the doctor certified by Big Sis, and “Mr. Sarti’s diagnosis isn’t yet clear, but apparently the State believed he was a danger to himself after a local doctor insisted that Mr. Sarti was suicidal”–will probable turn out to be “home grown terroist” .

          • hhr says:

            On Addition a 350 pound home grown terroist—-leave him alone, just trying to make a few bucks.

          • Zod says:

            Never saw one damn thing in his channel to lead me to believe he was suicidal. Quite the opposite in fact..

      JUST BRING IT!!!! They can have the bullets first

      • concerned prepper says:

        if you’re even slightly serious, or anyone thinking like this, that is a realy bad idea. without a large coordinated group of people with you, fighting back physically would be incredably detramental to gun owners everywhere. I agree you need to fight, but doing so could get you killed, or worse give the government an excuse to confinscate guns from American’s. Even if that would be just a miniscule isolated event on a national scale. Not to mention the fact that the swine in the media would use that event to shed an even more negitave light on the already “crazy right-wing fanatic” gun owners of America.

        • Knowport says:

          Soo…just let them take the guns then without fighting back. The only choice is ..not to be where they think that you are..

          • Nobody says:

            Don’t fight them on the beaches, in the streets and fields. Fight them in a court of law with a psychiatric expert and multiple civil suits against agencies, disclosing physician (Tarasoff, anyone?), personal suits against the coordinator of the action.

            Then, buy yourself a minigun and tons of ammo with your spoils. Have a picnic and invite your friends and those you legally whooped over for grilled steaks and to watch the sheer display of your awesomeness.

            And me. I want to fire the minigun!

          • OPSEC people. Never let anyone know what you have.

          • ygjsfgy says:

            I agree with ArmaedAndPrepperous but would like to add to that thought. Never let anyone know what you have and never keep it all in one location. We have all heard the saying “don’t keep all your eggs in one basket”, well that applies to preps as well.

          • gena says:

            How about people just keep your mouths shut about what you have or do not have, called discretion. that way no one you do not trust knows what weapons you might own or not own, what other prepper activities you might be participating in and what your political opinions are. What they do not know cannot be used against you.

    • Shilodawn says:

      I agree totally with you MentalDefectivePrepper that they are going to make us look crazy,,,my sis probaby thinks so right now :) funny/and not.
      Yes I think THEY are doing all this for the bigger picture.
      Sorry to hear about what you went thru, I hope you can stay safe and don’t give up! Find friends who may help you or more of us preppers in your own area who will help even emotionally.We need to stick together in groups who know what’s going on, so they can’t pick us off individually. God Bless you- Good luck.

    • Dennis Buckley says:

      Most of us won’t want to use guns against are own fellow americans when the time comes anyway. So why give those people more to work with against others. Having guns, ammo, & food stock piled will only make you the first (best) target. LOOSE LIPS SINK SHIPS.

      • josephine says:

        This is wild! I’m not a prepper. I’m a “gonnaslipawayer”. They have broken the law. You really could sue all of them.
        Don’t they realize they have not only broken the law, they have gone against your civil rights and can you can propably sue for reasons of bigotry and maybe even a hate crime. Use their tricks on them.You are something else. I hope you get your guns back.

    • AGP says:

      They’re ARE working on making preppers look crazy.

      The latest… AGP(Anti-Government Phobia) is a “newly” discovered mental illness.

      It’s coming folks, so don’t quote or stand up for the constitution, or the declaration of independence, or state your second amendment rights, lest you be accused of having AGP.

      Just remember, the largest army in the world is the armed American citizens.

      • TexanInTraining says:

        AGP, regarding the Anti-Government Phobia thing, I did a bit of research when I saw that posted a couple of days ago and that “report” was around in 2005. It was written by Ivor E. Tower. M.D. (interesting choice of name). That, to me, is a big hoax. I found a post on another forum that said the poster checked the Journal of Clinical psychiatry and for that article to have come from the issue the article listed, it would have had to be written many years ago. So, I think it was a hoax.

        That being said, I believe our government is working in that direction although I don’t think there is an actual psychiatric “official” disease yet named. I think Satan is afoot and we haven’t seen anything yet.

        Good luck to all the preppers of which I am one.

        • ProudTeaBagger says:

          I checked the website. No such article found.

      • David - FL says:

        Pro-limited Constitutional Government is NOT Anti-Government but try telling that to a liberal or our out of control government o.0

      • JackJohnson says:

        Actually the largest Army in the world is the well armed Chinese Army.

    • Tamara says:

      I totally agree. My first thought was that it was for a gun grab. I had never seen Mr. Sarti before this post. But it seems to me that this could be a healing time for him. Does he have enough supporters that a collection could be arranged for his surgery? Right now he’s obviously depressed, and for good reason. But if he took this time to take care of David and get in good health and physical condition, he could make a new start. I wish the best for him.

    • joe says:

      I respect your opinions but i also disagree. The show by design was not to portray preppers as crazy but to examine yet another cross sectionof our society. This man may have had many issues we dont know about. And doctors are held to a code, if that conversation occured thenhe brought on his own trouble. You wouldnt say to a cop ” i could rob that bank” maybe he wad depressed about his health. While a low profile is probably best, community outreach is vital.

      • John Galt XXIV says:

        You are completely deluded about the so called “code” physicians are held to… The Hippocratic oath is dead and long buried by apparatchiks of the evolving collectivization of medicine (step 1: seize control of the means of production.) This guy spoke his mind. You don’t do that in the New AmeriKa. He should have answered like so,”Is that a mandatory or voluntary question? or, I’ll be happy to answer all of your questions as soon as my attorney gets here… am I under arrest? You seem angry. Is everything ok at home. How are things between you and your wife? Anything I can do to help?”

        • Nobody says:

          You’re a funny guy, Mr. Rand. Tarasoff is the only rationale for the reporting of this man’s condition (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarasoff_v._Regents_of_the_University_of_California). Your attitude is what encourages everyone to lie to their healthcare providers. We’re mature adults and we’ve seen it all.

          This guy’s physician may have stepped out of bounds. So do like any other Amerikan and SUE HIM. Subpoena his coworkers from that night and get everything on the record. You don’t need a fancy attorney to uncover corruption. The inside of a court room scares the living daylights out of a lot of people, and it only takes one honest professional to disclose the truth. There is a zero tolerance policy in this nation for abuse of power. You just need the nerve to stand up for yourself and not back down. Hoist this doc up the flagpole and let’s see if anyone salutes.

    • tommytac@ymail.com says:

      Keep on with what your doing the moor info out there you are helping people about the show it jest helps.

    • Bobo says:

      You people just love jumping to conclusions. First, from a legal standpoint, a doctor cannot divulge information that the patient has provided UNLESS the doctor believes that the patient is 1) in imminent danger of harming themself; or 2) expressing their desire to harm others and the doctor believes that the patient is going to act to harm others. This means that the “doctor” in the article (and really, are you seriously going to doubt that a doctor was involved? If so, you need to double the tinfoil on your hat.) actually had at least one session with this guy–i.e. spoke with him in person and the doctor’s opinion was not based on the tv show.

      Second, I don’t know about you, but personally, I don’t want felons and mentally deranged people to have guns. Seriously, are you going to argue this, too? That you think felons and crazy people should be allowed to have guns?

    • scrambo says:

      cache your guns and ammo and be smart about it – do it off your property, they have metal detectors and will search an acre or two. keep a few cheepee’s to turn in…if you are buying buy from individuals not firearms dealers….be smart folks,,, don’t share your intimate plans except with like minded folks… don’t make yourself a target !!! there has to be a few good men/women left to rebuild this thing !!!

    • AMANDA BROMAN says:

      David. Would love to talk with you, pick your organized brain on these issues. I know they think you’re crazy, all of us in this boat are called “crazy”, but soon the sun falls from the sky and the darkness hits so fast we won’t be able to even comprehend it, and life as we know it will perish in an instant. I believe in the same as you do and would love to talk with you. I have to prep better than the rest because I am a woman alone with a small family on my shoulders. How can I find you? Would you like to talk with me?

    • Barbara says:

      I agree, this happened to him and it can happen to ANYONE!!! We have the right to refuse treatment of any kind even if it means we may die for the lack of treatment. We also have the right to die without pain even if the medication may hasten death. We have the right to pick and choose which medical treatments if any that we endure.

      I feel this man was used as and example of what the government can and will do in the event that we meet a catastrophe requiring us to defend ourselves.

      This sequence of events that happened to this man is typical of violation of our constitutional rights. He should fight thru the legal system as well as thru the media!!!! Lest we all be silenced!!!

      Mr Sarti you must not give up!!! I know funds are scarce but the media is free and so is YouTube….you must be heard!!!

    • Barbara says:

      After surviving Katrina in South Mississippi as well as the aftermath I can appreciate the need to be prepared for disaster and the lack of civilization as we knew it. The first three days here on the coast the infrastructure was destroyed the vermin were abound. The need for self preservation was prevalent. There were NO volunteers for help at this time anywhere!!!

      The persecution of Mr Sarti is the example that we must expect. This can happen to anyone. We have the right to pick and choose what if any medical treatment we want even if the refusal means eminent death!! We also have the right to die pain free even if the meds hasten death by compromising vital signs. This is documented by the thousands of Living Wills in effect today. And is not deemed suicidal.

      I would sue the doctor for false accusations and imprisonment without basis, ie no threat, no plan and no gesture. And he knows right from wrong. The statement based on a hypothetical situation does not count. Otherwise the statement of ” give me liberty or give me death” would not be the grain of every American but a statement of mass suicide!!!

      Mr Sarti you should not quiet your voice, I understand funds for attorneys is non existent but the media is free and your voice should be heard. Lest we all lose the rights in our constitution to bear arms and protect ourselves.

      The government will try to silence the strong of will and mind. It is the norm now to be financially supported by the government if tou are of weak mind and body as evident by the masses on disability in the age range of 20-50 that are capable of working, except for their claim of a bad back, depression and bad nerves!!! Thus making a dependent society of people so blinded by the drugs and the gvt aide that they couldn’t survive a day on their own.

      Mr Sarti they took you guns not your voice?!?! Fight!

    • Linder says:

      The program is basically telling JQ Public what NOT to DO. i.e. buy illegal guns with drum mags (illegal) carrying loaded guns in 18 wheelers, and a few other things that are highly illegal such as transporting guns and ammo over state lines. The fat lady with all the food out in Utah and her gun is laughable teaching others when she can’t even hit the target. Do you really think a bad guy is going to hold still while she takes pot shots at him and misses? No. The germ lady had some good ideas but she misses the target on a lot of areas. The seed guy is okay but he’s nuts and highly gullible. What else has he been taken for as the newspaper headlines read it was a botched POT deal? Hmmmm. Seems he’s not on the up and up either.

      That show is a comedy show in my home and we love to laugh at those jerks stockpiling gasoline and ammo. Why is no one shown with a bicycle? For heaven’s sake it takes NO gasoline to run and you can transport yourself hundreds of miles on just some pedal power. Now how hard is that? You can even buy bike cargo trailers which can haul 200 lbs of stuff. And you can make your own tent out of cammo tarps that is waterproof and use skeeter netting to make a netting tent with some PVC pipes? How hard is that? This is one of the greatest comedy shows ever to come to tv in years. I wouldn’t miss a single show due to it being so funny.

      If you don’t want other people to know what you own don’t go on tv and brad about it.

      A nice Estwing 26″ AXE is a great tool – not too big to weild at an atacker and totally legal to carry in a car or in your hand. And a hell of a lot cheaper than a S&W tomakawk or an expensive $500 tacticle axe. Also a Gerber foldable shovel can be sharpened at the pointed end and makes a great weapon to weild at an attacker. There ARE other things available out there to protect yourself other than a GUN. DUH. Apparently these morons think guns are the end all to end all. When their ammo runs out I guess they will use their expensive gun as a club.

    • Better idea, lets launch our own plans to make them — ” corporate – elite – nwo – global – whore media – goons – etc ” look like wak jobs in the face of the self same people that they are trying to convince.

      Goes to show how we no longer have any rights in this country. Yes this guy by some might be considered weird but to me the people in washington and hollywood seem weird. Since when did quarky become a mental disorder.

      • Also Todd says:

        I’ve loved dsarti’s vids since the very first one he put out…I guess the moral here is don’t open your mouth, even in jest, to anyone who can control your life and property.

        I mean who hasn’t said at some point ” Man, I’d like to kill that guy”? Or ” Arrrgh! I wish I could just end it all right now!”? This has been a wake-up call to me as I am a very extroverted, talkative and joking person. I will say just about anything in jest….I doubt I will NOW!

    as soon as I heard they were gonna do a show about preppers i knew it would be bad juju, and any prepper in there plans would know better than to tell the world about what there doing ect. thus keep yours yours and not let the whole world know this is why we have NO Miltia anymore they are dis armed as soon as found out about which is totraly against the constituion. good luck all remember keeps yours yours!

      While I agree with you that Tennesse is a hell whole and seems to be ground zero in the governments plan to track everyone this is an American problem that can happen anywhere. They are out to get preppers plain and simple

    They can declare anyone what they want to with “their” doctors. This is why OPSEC is THE most important thing on my mind. Money talk ,B.S. walks. If they ewant our guns they can take them if they want.

  11. Converterjoe says:

    I was wonderin’ what the people people who appeared on this show were thinking! Isn’t everyone aware of NatGeo’s liberal bent? Of course they’re going to portray you as a whack job! Like palrider says…keep yours yours. You can prep quietly. Shouldn’t have to but that’s the reality of it.

    • Zermoid says:

      From the first I heard of this show I wondered what kind of person would advertise that they are stockpiling goods for a crisis.

      That pretty much would make them a target for all their unprepared neighbors in case there actually was a disaster at least, and a target for the govt at worst it seems…….

    • ShogunTse says:

      Don’t participate, don’t watch.

      It’s called “ratings”. Would you watch if there was a someone just sitting with morning coffee reading a paper?

  12. Bob says:

    Well, believing is “god” or whatever you call it is indeed a proof of being mentally ill, as believing blindly and submitting to the will of something you have no rational reason to believe in shows a total lack of judgement.

    That being said, prepping isn’t (well, unless you truly believe that actual zombies will rise… it’s fun to talk about, but nothing serious) a proof of being mentally ill, and although intense in his ways, this guy doesn’t cross the “insane line”. It is indeed a reminder that as sad as it sounds, we must take care of our image, and keep in mind real, plausible scenarios instead of prepping for fantasy stories.

    • AJ says:

      Zombies are not going to rise? WTF, over?
      HA! I will say, though, if you are prepared for the impending zombie apocalypse, you are prepared for anything. I’m not saying I am preparing for anything. In fact, I don’t even like guns and would never want food on hand.

      You hear that, you ease dropping gestapo pigs!

      Beleiving there isn’t a God is even more stupid.If there isn’t a God then that means that everything came from nothing which is scientifically impossible.The big bang theory or that in the beginning there was nothing,and for no reason nothing exploded and created everything.There is one little problem.If there was nothing not space,Not time,Not energy,then per the 1st law of thermodynamics(Conservation of mass) the big bang was impossible.

    • sam says:

      hear, hear bob!!!

      if these christians were really christians, they’d just turn the other cheek and forgive you for your insolence. instead, they get pissed because you challenge their delusions.

      the funniest “i’m sane, but their crazy delusion” is how christians complain about how crazy iranians are because they’re waiting for the 12th imam to return. meanwhile they’re sitting on their couches waiting for gabriel’s trumpet to sound and for the heavens to open for the rapture.

      • cyprus927 says:

        Ummmmm. Your whats wrong with this country. And about the christian getting angry and replying to your stupid comment seemed to be stateing facts. And not only that but having a debate or conversation more or less. Something has never in history come from nothing. Its impossible. Defys physics and the laws of nature. Everything we have and use on a daily basis was created by an inteligent designer. Everything. And the way our bodys work, how the earth works, the brain itself is more complex then anything man has ever created in any way shape or form. We are her because of an inteligent designer and that designer is God. To believe anything other wise is, and should be considered mental illness. You have to be mentally ill to believe something comes from nothing. Why? Because as stated it has never happened and never will. If you have an example i will retract all of what i have said. And also this man is prepareing for something that is evidentally going to happen and is in the works as we speak and to think other wise is foolish and stupid and he was called mentally ill but you believeing in what is completely not logical or possible in any way are considered rational and sane. But they wont take anything from you because as you said you dont like guns, which after all were a major assecory to the freedom of our country and took up a whole section in our constitution. This man in the video has just had his american birth right taken away from him and that is a sign to me and should be to this country that this is no longer the land of the free and home of the brave, but the land of the bonded and crib for the babys.

        You two are sad, sad, sad. Your problem is that you’re trusting in YOURSELF, with absolutely no proof that you will do what’s right, no record of your faithfulness, wisdom or goodness. My Lord, if that isn’t BLIND FAITH, what is? You’re confused; Christians don’t get mad at you for disagreeing, we get concerned (yes, concerned…not a word you’ve used before?) about your sanity, because of your obvious delusion that you are the center of the universe and are in control. When push comes to shove, and the shit WILL hit the fan (read your history) people like you are dangerous to have around.

          christians don’t get mad? who are you kidding besides yourself? millions have died over disagreements with christians. maybe i’m not the one who should read a bit of history. i think the bible says something about removing the plank from your own eye before commanding others to remove the speck from their own, but i digress.

          getting pissed off about having your “faith” challenged is job #1 for every single christian sect. it keeps the rubes in line and maintains order.

          christians sin daily even with an ironclad code of conduct, so whose missing the big point? christians do what’s right because they fear the consequences. atheists do what’s right because they actually want to. which is more genuine?

        • Marty says:

          Hummmm… besides the right to keep and bear arms I do believe that the Constitution also gives us the right to freedom of religion (or lack there of) as I see it. Yes the founding fathers were Christians (as far as I know) but they did have the foresight to know that extremist could destroy a government. Nothing scares me more than a bunch of religious extremist (no matter what religion they are) gaining control. It seems to me that more people in the history of man have been persecuted, tortured or killed in the name of religion than anything else. Your labeling someone who doesn’t believe in your God as insane is exactly what I’m talking about. It wouldn’t take much for people like you to go from “concerned” to trying to find a “cure” for these poor people. This is the very reason for separation of church and state. Feel free to be “concerned” for me if you wish but I must warn you against ever trying to “cure” me.

          • Hope CommiesCrash says:

            Unfortunately, the current set of religious extremists are the atheists, humanist, and secularists. They are waging war on the First Amendment and are the most intolerant, violent zealots on the religous continuum. Worse than the Islamists. Atheists and atheist governments are responsible for well over 100 million murders of their own citizens. Islamists over their history come in 2nd worst.

    Since he was “”” Committed””” for 4 days, and the show didn’t premier till 3 days ago… I doubt the DR., or Judge, or anybody involved knew anything about it!!! If you’ve watched many of Dsarti’s videos, you will know that he’s liable to say anything. My guess is he was in the DR’s office, running his mouth, and said something stupid.

    • dr. dude says:

      My guess also is that this doctor has been sued several times and now practicesdefensive medicine. You cant sue a doctor in general for seeking to commit you. You or your familycan sue the doctor for letting you go after making possible suicidal statements. If the facts as statedarw correct i doubt i would have soughtcommitment, but doctors arevery scared of bankruptcy and loss of medical license,so we allpractice defensive medicine now.

They did a fine job of this, main thing is why was a straight preppper go on TV and show the world what they have done or stored. Kind of places them on the hit parade when SHTF.
    I too am a very serious prepper and felt that those chosen for the show were a little off center. Or as my mother alway says, they are a little light in he loafers.

    And today’s lesson is? Until this police state stops its games its NEVER safe to talk to a doctor or be on tv. Doctors are the new police under Obama care.

    • Nobody says:

      Negative. You can tell docs how much crack you smoke, how many guns you own, the type of STDs you have, and no one will care.

      But if you say the only thing keeping you alive is a commandment from your religion… that sounds a lot like “If I weren’t a Christian, I would have already killed myself.” On the psych test, it’s okay to be a bipolar meth addicted male prostitute, just not to be:
      1) Homicidal
      2) Suicidal
      3) Likely to die if left to your own devices.

      If he’d have said, “Suicidal? Hell no! I take great pride in serving God, my church and my community!” The doc would have no grounds to stand on. You get to the Psych profile, you tell the truth and crack no jokes. It’s like the TSA, don’t tell them you have a bomb in your luggage unless you want a cavity search.

      You wouldn’t want your doctor to ignore a friend’s suicidal streak, you’d want him to be treated and released- even if that meant the loss of his guns. This fella seems married. His wife should own a lot of guns, NOW!

      :D

Try and look at this way, would you broadcast to the masses abou what your financial situation is?? OF COURSE NOT!!! So don’t broadcast that you’re “Prepping”…..

  31. Ecorrigan says:

    I liked this guy. There wasn’t any indication on the show that he was mentally unstable or anything. I agree that this is more than likely a precursor to the whole attempt at confiscating guns and attempting to show the masses that anyone who prepares in any way for any kind of disaster is mentally unstable and suicidal and a danger to all around us! I hate our government!!

    • John says:

      While I completely agree with the folks about OPSEC and keeping quiet about what you are storing, “Prepping” is what the FEMA folks are asking us to do!

  32. illyounotme says:

    Dave, dsarti11, did not have this happen due to Doomsday Preppers show. It was from going to the doctor previous to the show over his health issues. It just has taken this long for it to come to this point. The doctor basicly tricked him into describing methods of suicide when he does not want to kill himself, then reported him as a suicide risk. If you follow his youtube, he has had issues with the Sheriff when someone on skype called the Sheriff on him for “choking his chicken”. LOL Dave had been describing normal rural farm practices with livestock and some gung ho PETA person got freaked out and called the Sheriff. Look up the video it was funny.

    But the point is this is probably more to do with the local authorities wishing to disarm him due to him being, “that weird guy with a bunch of guns out on that farm” than because of Doomsday Preppers.

    As for contacting the NRA, he did. The NRA lawyer he thought he had just refused his case and started returning the money people were donating to Dave’s defense fund.

    • Happydude says:

      Any idea as to why the NRA lawyer refused the case?

      • Nobody says:

        Political purposes.

        We just won Heller vs. D.C., reinforcing our civil rights. “The weakest link in any civil rights case is the defendant.” Heller, for instance, was known to be a standup guy with no other troubles.

        This guy would make the NRA look like him, instead of the mentally fit, physically strong, morally straight citizens we are.

        He needs to get organized and counter-attack the doctor, then the Sheriff, get his “mentally defective status,” overturned and then move the hell away. With a bag of cash, of course.

        • Dr. Dude says:

          I am the psychiatrist who has made several comments here. Lawyers wont take the case because doctors are generally exempt from being sued for seeking a commitment. But doctors can be sued if they dont commit somebody making suicidal threats. The guy was not judged mentally defective. Hewas involuntarily hospitalized under court order. He can be totally competent now and it means nothing. If the doctor thought he was temporarily a danger to himself or others that doctor will seek court commitment, otherwise the doctor coyld be sued forfailing to ” protect” the patient. Stop the lawyers from suing and we doctors wont give a crap what u say in our office.

  34. Prepping Preacher says:

    yet another example of the criminal overreaching of law enforcement and mental health(???) agencies everywhere in trying to “prevent a possible crime” through annihilation of our individual rights – of course, for the “greater good” because this guy may someday do something to someone in some way… that and the fact they are very concerned for the backlash created by the media and anti-gunner types who insist on laying blame on those “in the know about such persons and doing nothing about it” for incidences that do occur… after all, a sheriff has the right to be re-elected too, doesn’t he..??

  35. joe says:

    All actions have consequences, many ununtended. As a prepper, I am appalled by many preppers. Their lack of OPSEC and general appearance of being whack jobs. One stated reason for prepping is personal responsibilty. If you are going to appear to be a whack job, be responsible and accept the inevitable consequences.

    • Tamara says:

      Many people can’t help appearing to be “whack jobs”.Perhaps they are on the edge of “normal”. That should not preclude their having every right to prepare themselves for any coming emergency. If they are threatening others with their firearms, then perhaps they have forfeited the right to have them. Otherwise, Big Brother should keep his grimy little hands off. Why are our rights suddenly being taken away based on what we MIGHT do? This is BS.

      Read the commitment statutes in your state. Doctors cannot be sued for committing someone. A lawyer wont even take the vase nor give this guy five minutes. However doctors can be sued for failing to commit someone if that person hurts themselves or others later and the doctor knew they had made suicidal or homicidal statements. So of course we either pretend we didnt hear the statement or we commit you. I amnot exposing myself to an easy lawsuit. When in doubt,seek to commit them to a psych unit

    There is absoluty nothing mentally defective in this video. This man is over weight but that is not a crime at all. As far as prepping goes. Guns are not the end all in security anyway. God will do a far better job keeping a person safe any way. Jesus is getting ready to take all His children home to Heaven any time now. Prepping is good but getting ones soul ready to meet their God is much more important! God will watch over His children and care for them even if resources run low.

    The main prepping a person should be doing today is “Prepare to meet your God”.

    • FearDfeatr says:

      Alvin, yours is the best comment yet. For true believers the Great Commission compels us to take the good news to the decaying world: “…that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who THROUGH FEAR OF DEATH WERE SUBJECT TO LIFELONG SLAVERY.”

      Jesus commissioned his disciples to take nothing with them. Many of them died tragically at the hands of the same hell-bent world system that exists today. What is the good of “gaining the whole world and losing your soul”?

      For those who believe that all they have is this world and their own strength and cunning, all this effort makes sense. Focusing on “you and yours” is the opposite of the gospel.

  48. Stockpiler Adams says:

    Kellene & Scott Bishop were featured on the second episode. They gave a demonstration how they will defend their home under the cover of darkness with guns, morse code and a foreign language.

  49. JB says:

    Very important fact to consider! Anyone in the law enforcement field will tell you that ninety percent of crimes solved don’t get solved by exceptionally observant investigators or CSI style operations. Most of them are from the perpetrator talking about their actions to other people, or people with intimate knowledge of their actions (friends, family, ect). That being said, it also relates to non-criminal actions that are frowned upon by the government, such as prepping and stock piling. The less people outside of your “Emergency Action Plan” that know about your preparations the better. My general rule of thumb is “If I don’t plan on having them in the bunker with me when the balloon goes up, then they don’t need to know anything about it”. In the end my family comes first, PERIOD. For me that security comes from keeping the details of my personal emergency action plan TOP SECRET!

    In his second/follow up video, toward the end,he appears to contradict himself by stating that his legal right to own guns was taken away but that his guns were not taken by the govt. He appears to say that his firearms are off his property but not in the hands of the govt.

    While this man’s rights have been violated he needs to clarify this point – Were his guns taken by the government or was he allowed to transfer them himself from his property?

  52. Tango Down says:

I was not aware of the show or what happened to him until recently though. I had lost track of him for awhile and hence forth, I was unaware of this but it’s it’s definite sad to hear.

  53. Sean says:

    The government has mandated that doctors, especially pediatricians, pay very close attention to what their patients say in regards to certain “key words and tricky phrases”. You could make a very casual remark that could quite easily put you in their radar screen. My wife has told me on numerous occasions when bringing our kids to a new pediatrician that they would ask if there were guns in the house, about any domestic violence (mommy and daddy yelling, hitting, etc.) and questions of the like on the forms she had to fill out.

    Be very, VERY csrefull about what you say to your doctor. Keep it short and sweet and only to what is relavant to your visit. If they ask you questions outside of the scope of your visit, lie your ass off. Any evasion of the question will raise suspicion. OPSEC doesn’t just apply to your friends, neighbors and co-workers, but with your doctors, as well.

    There really isnt any conspiracy here. I am a psychiatrist and a prepper. I seethis all the time.

I may lose my insurance and be unable to practice medicine if I am sued whwther or not I win. I may be sued for more than myinsurance will pay and loseeverything in bankruptcy. I generally cant be sued for attempting to commit you,but i can sure as heck be sued if I dont try to commit you, so guess what I will do? Sorry folks, but my career and family finances come first. Get rid of lawsuits then i dont have to give a crap if you run your mouth in my office.

      Well, Doc, we both know that’s not going to happen. Tarasoff did that in a long time ago. I say we try to help Bubba hoist the Cardiologist up by his short hairs until he gets his civil rights back. Dr. Heart will just have to take one for the team, and the greater team’s freedom.

      Sounds like Bubba did his psych hold and got released as sane and without maintenance meds, which means his condition was misdiagnosed. I think a medical malpractice suit is in order, to recompense the patient for the pain and suffering caused by the cardiologist’s psychiatric failure. Basically, we’ve got to find a way to get this fellow his rights back.

        The doctor cant be sued for seeking court commitment. All state commitment laws are written that way. A lawyer wont even touch the case. Did u see what I wrote? I can be suedfor not committing you if it is my professional judgment u r a danger toyourself or others. I dont like the law,but you cant sue me for attwmpting to commit you. You can sue me if I dont try to hospitalize you if u r making suicidal threats. It is ur word against mine. Guess who the.judge will believe?

      Lol you guys have a lot to learn. No lawyer will ever touch a “wrongful commitment” case. It is about the only thing u cant sue a doctor for,but you or your family can sue me if I let you go afterhearing you make suicidal statements. Sorry buddy. Norhing personal, but I am not gonna get sued. You are goingto be picked up by security or police if u make a suicidal statement to me. I am not gonna let u go and give an attorney a slam dunk case that might bankrupt me.

  58. Bwhntr56 says:

    The good that might come out of Doomsday peppers is it may convince more people to prep, and therefore make them less dependent and less likely to try and grab up you or your friends/neighbors food or other supplies. But for sure I would not participate. the Gov has enough info on us, why give them more and possibly a reason to be on the Homeland Security watch/hit list.

  59. Dr. Dude says:

    Lol. You do censor posts.. i explained exactly why the doctor committed this gut. I am a psychiatrist who has been doung this for years. It might enlighten your readers to put back my first post rather than block it.

      Sorry. I was mistaken. I found my post.

    This is an outrage! This man is no more mentally unstable than Santa Clause.This is a prime example of the consequences of the government knowing too much about an individual.
    I don’t see any links for a petition or legal funds…lets stomp some tail! Not just for for David,but for all of our rights.

  61. dr.dude says:

    Ok here is what you do.

    If placed on an emergency hold by a hospital dont bother fighting right then. Immediately tell them u will sign in voluntarily. Voluntary treatment in a psych unit allows you to maintain your gun rights. You only lose gun rights in some states for involuntary hospitalization. If you try to fightinvoluntary hospitalization you will lose on the first hearing. The judge always gives the doctor the benefit of the doubt on the first commitment hearing. We doctors dont like to commit people. It is a burdensome procedure that wastes a lot of time and we lose money on it. If you agree to be hospitalized the doctor will lwt you sign in voluntarily and he will be grateful u didnt waste his time in court.

    Then consistently cooperate and deny being suicidal. You will be let out in three or four days because your insurance wont pay for hospitalizationif you act normal and say you feel fine and are not suicidal. Youcanexplain itwas all a misunderstanding. If you dont have insurance and you voluntarily sign in they willonly keep you two days. Wedont like to work for free. If u dont have insurance (or lie about not having it) then we will find any excuse possible to kick you out of the hospital. If they do try to keep you more than three or four days get an attorney, but stay voluntary dont try to leave. .eventually you will get out of the hospital and you will not have lost ur gun rights.

    This guy needs to get aggressive legal representation, however, like he states he can not afford it. It is a tragedy, that you must be wealthy to protect your constitutional rights.
    One one think that the NRA would help provide legal assistance but the best you will get out them is a form letter.
    I ‘ll be praying for you Davis Sarti. You should set up a fund where people could donate a dollar or three and get yourself a good attorney. Call the Michael Savage radio show.

  64. Lurk City says:

    I understand that a lot of you who come here probably do hate that Doomsday show… and I will admit I am a zombie enthusiast and that was the only thing i at the time was thinking would be the end of the world really, even with movies coming out like the book of eli, the road, etc.. post apocalyptic type movies. however it didnt make me want to prep for anything, thinking nah that it movie stuff.

    however after watching like 2 doomsday preppers shows Im fully in. I agree those shows do make those poeple look crazy, however when the shit hits the fan I still think they will be on point. so withoth that show I’d have never started to plan like that… not hoarding food and stuff but def purchased a very durable bug out bag from 511 tactical (again a website i never knew about prior to all this, thanks google.) and im starting to get that together. even if the world doesnt end, it will be the most bad ass camping bag right?

    AND… im all about shipping containers as houses… i had seen a nice one somehow flipping the channels and seeing a ‘green’ shipping container house on mtv cribs of all places. made the doomsday family look a little strange but still again, they will be set lol.

  65. Chicago Nick says:

    Ever since Natgeo has been airing THIS ONE YES, they do edit to make them look stupid and what would they expect lending themselves to such a show.

    GBTV has one called Independence USA, and the guy’s with his wife and 2 kids, he’s got some useful ideas and it’s not TOO loony.

    This one though, just like the America series Discovery had, they spin everything anti American Patriot. They’re the ones who call our founders ‘terrorists’ when they didn’t kill women and children like Muslim terrorists do at will, yet Obama won’t call em Islamic terrorists.

    Go figure that one out.

    This guy is why everyone’s doing what they’re doing. They’ll have a tough time taking our block down, that I can tell you.

    You give up too easy…. Find a real shyster lawyer.. on commission and sue everyone involved. If you cannot find an attourney file in Persona Propria (on your own)..Learn about depositions then depose the crap out of all of them.. For Days..with endless questions.. You obviously have kept your cool, your not ranting .. So now it’s your turn to play. Depose that Doctor.. Make him reveal if he has ever contributed money to a liberal cause.

    Maybe he does not like heavy people.. maybe he is prejudiced against you because you white..

    The point is to lawfully fight back.

    Good luck.

  70. Raggamuffin says:

    This man is not insane in any way. He’s a man that is trying to be sensible about the reality of today. You know less than 100 years ago, people were planting gardens, canning food, using scrap material for quilts, making their own clothes, washing on a scrub board and using a clothes line. We did not have computers, kindles, iphones, microwaves, etc. and we were not considered MENTAL. Having a cow for milk meant you were rich and a chicken was a neccessity.

    Just because this poor man went to the doctor to get his health checked out, gives them no right to instantly think he’s suicidal. It still is not clear on how they figured he was suicidal to begin with. Did he tell the doctors he was prepper and go into detail? Was it because he went to the doctor in overalls? Around here, you may see a man in overalls, with no shirt and a dress blazer. We don’t think anything of it. Just like people in California thinks dressing wildly and skating down the boardwalk is normal. We don’t have a boardwalk around here. Just saying, there’s nothing wrong with this man, he just got ahold of a yak job for a doctor. I think the doctor needs help myself.

    This message is to Mr. Sarta. Don’t let this discourage you from doing what comes natural to you. Some things you cannot dispute and if you give in and let people control your beliefs, they’ve won. If you can’t have a gun, get a bow and learn to use it. I am sure you can still have your animals, cling to what you do have and continue living your life the way you believe is best for you and yours. God Bless you, dear Sir.

  71. m says:

    Does he have grounds to sue?

  72. Rain23 says:

    Before you give up on prepping, please reflect that when SHTF there will be no rule of law, and thus no problem with trading the products of your homestead for what you need. Common sense people can make their own determinations.

    This is America. I have a right to disagree with your philosophy, your religion, your lifestyle… but not the right to judge you insane because of it. It doesn’t sound to me like you met the criteria for a legal psychiatric hold, but rather someone else decided your views and lifestyle indicated you were suicidal. Legal hold is supposed to be objective and based on a psychiatrist’s findings, but you had no way of knowing that your refusal to cooperate with care in the ER probably denied you having that critical interview.

    Please keep on with your hard work to improve your health and with your prepper lifestyle. You have a lot to contribute and many of us do appreciate the time you’ve spent helping others. God bless.

  73. Kathy says:

    I think the government is run by a bunch of unstable characters and should all be put under doctor’s care…the fact that they are trying to make a person that is preparing to protect his family for a crisis is one of the most absurd moves by the government. So, I guess I and so many others that are not scammed by the government are “crazy” should be under suicide watch and our weapons (that the constitution allows us to have)will be taken from us. There’s no way I trust this government to protect me, especially during a time of disaster.

    I can’t believe how eager some of you folks are to condemn. No wonder abuse is such a common occurance.
    Just in case you’re interested in what happened: The man was having symptoms that indicated that his heart was in trouble. The “doctor” he saw should have been suspicious of that if for no other reason than how grossly overweight the man was.
    This man should see a lawyer and then see another doctor–a heart specialist.
    And then he should sue the jerk who caused him so much stress.
    His lawyer should report the incident to the AMA.
    This is a shining case of malpractice.

    this goverment has no clue what “shall not be infringed” even means anymore .try to take americans guns away and thay will force us to a revolution, truly this is there goal. order from chaos first you must have chaos?then the new world order.beware what you ask for..remimber revolution looks like a dead body in the street..(not pretty)

  80. Randy says:

    This is horrible that something like this can happen. What’s even more scary is the Government is going to declare that shyness and grieving are actual mental illnesses, so now they can declare you mentally defective for those things too. This country is getting turned upside-down. Watch out everyone, the commies are coming for us.

  81. Maddog says:

    Well let me think how about low profile. Yeah I am going to go on television and talk about all my prep, where I live and how many guns I have. The people on this show may be prepared but not too bright. We make our choices and live with the outcome.

  82. kalkren says:

    The people on this show should never, never be on TV. The sole purpose of the show is to say that people who prepare for major disasters or emergencies are a little crazy. My grandparents and even your grandparents also out there canned food. I have visited my grandparents home when I was a kid and opened a cabinet and saw jars and jars of peaches, carrots, okra and others. I was eight and thought “What the hell do you need all this for” As I got older I realize why and how smart it is to do it.
    America isn’t free anymore. Because of a TV show the government can confiscate your firearms, A TV SHOW. Government can take your kids lunch that you made for them if they deem it bad. I believe that this country tombstone was written then the government can take your home and give it to a private individual (Eminent domain). I am very sorry but the government knows that we are weak. You can argue all you want. Freedom takes strength. Freedom is only for the strong. Freedom has responsibility. Freedom is hard. Freedom is glorious.

  83. gwbig says:

    hate this for him took away his hobby and something that made him happy. even the CDC said to prep for disasters. i guess u just don’t tell any one you are.this world is full of crazy people with weapons of all kinds taking guns from someone will not stop them from doing harm to others.just makes them creative!!

From Episode 1, one of the revealed enough information for him to be located within 5 min! Stay anonymous with regards to the public!! Don’t give up your personal information. This guy lost his gun rights because he gave up too much information, in my opinion.

    i watched the show and i got to say that its better bein prepared than not. im thinking about doin some prepareing mam=ybe not to that level but i would like to be able to defend my family by any means nessecary.i dont have permits or license but im trying to purchase some protection online somehow.

    p.s i dont think he is crazy at all just a guy trying to be prepared for the worse. if i could i would probably hookup with him and get a good line of defense goin.

    I knew mr sarti years ago when he used to do photography…yes he is a little odd but he is one of the sweetest and kindest people I know. My father and him are still friends to this day. It is absolutely ridiculous that the government can do stuff like this. This is just another reason for me to NOT vote for Obama this year.

  93. Sean says:

    The only thing the Government understands and that is a lawsuit. Just threaten to slap a lawsuit on the four numskulls that messed up your life and they’ll make sure that everything goes back to normal. I find that odd in that a piece of pare inspires more fear that a loaded gun.

  94. JAQUEBAUER says:

    When a simple man, a farmer, a woodsman, a regular good citizen gets trapped by the legal system without counsel being by his side from the beginning of the encounter it can only result in terrible consequences for him. Anything you say or do is now held against you, and your attempts to clear up any misunderstanding are taken as obstructive and hostile.
    Most of us would fight any attempt to restrain us, or force us to do something we oppose, and don’t understand. Your words can be used against you, and when taken out of context can make a small misunderstanding and turn it into a felony, or force those bound by law to take severe and even deadly action against you. As more police, doctors, and other “professionals” enter the picture, it can make the accused angry and hostile. Those are normal reactions when a person that has done nothing wrong gets entrapped by the men in white coats and others in brown shirts.
    As the forces of Homeland Security become Gestapo like, and label retired soldiers, preppers, religious folk, gun owners and sportsman as threats to the New Order, there will be more incidents like this one. When our governing authority becomes hostile to the National Law and restraints of the United States Constitution, it becomes a Tyrannical authority, paranoid with power, and fearful of firearms in the population. What better way to disarm the population than to declare those that f it certain “profile” as mentally unstable and a threat to themselves. Obama has granted himself unlimited authority by executive order, unchallenged by the Congress, and declared necessary to fight the ongoing terror threat.
    Our legal system has lost all understanding of the common and simple man, and when one acts human, shows anger and wants to escape the situation and go home, it can get real bad for the victim real fast. David Sarti should have never been treated the way he was, and those involved in the actions taken against him and his losing his constitutional rights are the real criminals, as these so called professionals destroyed a good man’s life forever. I bet things escalated so fast no one stopped to ask, why are we treating this man this way and what did he do to get here. And any Judge that acted against Sarti without understanding the facts that led to the decision to invade his home and confiscate his property is incompetent and should be restrained for mental evaluation himself.
    From what we know, it seems to be that David Sarti is the only sane and competent man present. The so called professionals in today’s society are so far removed from how the average guy thinks, acts, what he does, and what he’s facing, or in Sarti’s case, why he is a prepping for a future disaster. I hope someone of wealth or some legal foundation can give David Sarti legal assistance, and see that his record is erased and all his property returned, and bring charges against all those “professionals” that railroaded and conspired against David Sarti. There can be no greater crime than to convict a man without cause.
    I am afraid with the current Mentality of the President and his Gestapo like Homeland Security, more Americans will be restrained, interred, and have his homestead raided and his legally possessed firearms confiscated. The ruse of declaring ordinary people mental defective will become commonplace as Obama’s paranoia increases and his desire to be King and all powerful is unrestrained. Our Justice Department is running guns into Mexico, arming the Narco Terrorists who are murdering our Police. Our Justice Dept. is permitting Black Panthers to occupy polling places to threaten white voters, is overlooking vote fraud, and allowing the flow of illegal aliens into the Border States. This same Justice Dept. under Eric Holder has filed charges against several Border States because those states are enforcing laws against the invasion of illegal aliens…..the laws that Eric Holder should be upholding but chooses to ignore. By allowing illegal aliens to vote, the Democratic Party increases its probability of retaining power.
    Our Congress has up to 80 members who are also Communist Party members, the same Communist party that’s goal is to overthrow the democratically elected governments and establish a Marxist based social order. This fact is so far out most people would refuse to accept this as the truth, and so they marginalize those that exposed the Communists. But it’s true; these people are sworn to the establishment of Marxism, even though they took an oath to uphold the Constitution. Why are these Communists permitted to do their evil work, undermining the Constitution and working against all the things many Americans fought and died for in past and present wars? The only reason these Communists are allowed to do their work of evil is because Obama and Eric Holder permit these traitors to continue their destructive work unchallenged.
    Unless more Americans stand tall and fight the evil forces of Obama, Eric Holder, the Communists, and the Democrats for a Marxist society, that invasion of illegals, the Islamist Threat, and Paramilitary forces of the Black Panthers who swear to murder white babies in their cribs, and shoot all white men we will lose our freedoms and rights we have taken for granted.
    We are the Americans, which believe in the God Given rights we so dearly enjoy, that oppose the forces of evil led by Obama and the Communists that will enslave us all. We must continue to prepare for the safety and survival of our families, but must do so quietly and unadvertised. TV programs like National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers have presented our members as nut jobs, crazies, weird eccentrics, and possible violators of firearms and explosives laws. No doubt the Federal Gestapo has identified all who has appeared and will be conducting raids to confiscate the firearms proudly demonstrated before the TV cameras. The prepper movement best move “underground” and remain silent and anonymous.
    We must not give our potential enemy and enslavers any advantage over us. It is time that National Geographic no longer has a source of willing preppers “actors.” Let the show end in season 1.

    was just wondering what has become of david sarti cant find any info on any sites pertaining to him

  96. Sean says:

    Well all of the preppers they show appear to be your stereotypical paranoid types without much going for them. It’s kind of hard to portray them as anything other than crazy, because yes if the .00000000001% chance of something happening does happen then they will be ready, if it doesn’t, they have wasted their lives.

  97. David B says:

    THIS LAW IS AN END-RUN AROUND JURIES, before this law was passed, it took a jury to take away your rights, instead of one state appointed official, “mental defective” is the new “heresy”, and doctors are the new state apointed priests.

    remember that this Un-constitutional mental defective law was passed by an all-republican govt (both parties are gunbanners) I lived under Romneys gun-control, don’t believe him, do a little googling, super tuesday- stupid tuesday, republicans made the biggest gunbanner most anti-freedom canadate their front runner, while the most pro-freedom canadate, ron paul, came in dead last, second most profreedom canadate, newt gingrich, came in second from last

  98. Katie Quirk says:

    After seeing this video today July 30th,2012, for the 1st time, I really had my eyes opened. I too am a conservative and a true believer in our constitution and in all of the binding documents that our founding fathers and the patriots of old fought and bled and died to give a heritage and legacy to all of their children who came after them of freedom from tyranny and and liberty. The Founding Fathers experiment in creating a government for the new world that would have checks and balances in it to prevent it from be- comimg corrupted with too many men who would let power go to their heads has lasted the test of time. The great experiment has lasted because, like yourself, Mr. Sarti, The Founders and the Patriots were Christians. Up until a few years ago, every single President of our great nation had started every meeting with a prayer and ended every meeting with a prayer. We are a nation that was founded in order that we might have Freedom OF Religion – NOT Freedom From it! It is only since we have elected this most recent President that we have been told that we are no longer a Christian Nation, and we are no longer beginning meetings of Congress or of the Senate with prayer nor do we end any government meetings with prayers since the new administration has come into office. I do not know whether it is his youth or just a chip on his shoulder because he is so proud to be in such an important place for all of his people who had been so disrespected for so long. But I sometimes wish he cold remember That among those founding fathers there was a young man who had a grandfather of African descent who had been born free in Africa, and sold into slavery, and had so much courage and spirit and honor in him, he managed to learn and strive and grow in America, and he became a learned man, and he married and had a son, and he bought not only his own freedom, but the freesom of his wife, his son, and his son’s wife’s freedom as well. That man was James Forten’s Grandfather. James Forten was one of this world’s bravest heroes when he was 7 years old he became the man of his mother’s house when his father drowned in the bay, and he saved George Washington’s cousin’s life in the revolutionary war when he was only 14 years old. He became a powder carrier on the Royal Louis after that,and had a short career in that dangerous job before being captured by the British. The way so many people view our citizens in America, even our President – seems to be – Long ago – if you were Black – you were a slave, poor and mistreated.
    if you were white and from the south – you were mean
    rich, and the one doing the mistreating of the poor
    but good black slaves. If you were a poor white person from the south, – you were probably un educated and talked funny, and you were probably a racist who wished you could mistreat blacks, but you just didn’t know better, because the mean rich people were mean to you too. If you were white and from the North, you were rich, but not as rich as the Southerners and not as mean because you didn’t have any slaves. If you were a White Poor Person – you were somehow more virtuous. Nowadays, The same person-alaties are still being stuck on all of us Americans. Except Instead of the the word Southerner, they put the word Conservative on us. and the word Liberal on the Northerners. I know that Lincolh and the Republicans freed the slaves, but – haven’t you heard the balogna that the republicans and the democrats have switched names a few years ago? that’s the craziest thing I’ve ever heard, but that is what they all like to say. All that happened was that when the Democrats were at their worst during the civil rights nightmare days. I know LBJ signed it, but He was part of the problem during all of the mess. The southern government was behind the meanest people – the rich demigogs! The ones who are behind making people fight to get something for nothing! I remember my gramdparents and my parents talking about how it was after betsy when I was little and the difference after Katrina, They said, it was so much better in New Orleans, and Betsy just Ate up New Orleans! But the People of every color, even people who were much poorer were too proud of themselves to ask for our government to clean their home up, everyone helped everyone else and we were all better for it. we will be soon voting for a new president or the same one. Will we vote for one that thinks he is only the president of his people, or of the ones that voted for him, or of his party and the rest of us can sit in the back of the bus? That we will have nothing to say? That we will have to give up the guns we cling to? That we will have to sit down and let him issue Presidential edicts? That we will not be able to use out god given rights that are inalienable? Rights that the founders and Madison didn’t want to write because there was no way that ALL of them could possibly be written down and they were afraid sorely that someday, some tyrant government may rise up and say that the written rights were the only rights we had- or worse, the rights written down were government granted and could be taken away, or legislated. Well guess what? This government administration is that government! Or, well, Nancy Pelosi’s Congress was, thank the lord we got the Baynor led Congress in now – but we have the overly liberal – dishonest – totally in the bed with the president, never vetted the president media, and they lie about everything to tilt it! People are so blinded by the glitz of the media and by Pollywood, they do not see the truth when it stares them in the face! When I was a child I was always wondering how could anyone ever be so foolish as to turn their eyes away from jesus when he was right there? How could the chosen people who had been waiting for him and had listened to the prophets missed him? How could they have not known that it was wrong to do such horrible things to him? But today, I can see how. In 1940′s Look what happened in Germany! Do We Really want to walk about with our heads in the sand while our children’s American Dreams are snatched from them? Even if we have 7 years before the bitter end, we may have a chance to push it back some more if we can push this president off the red button. I am so afraid. We need a president who is not afraid to pray. We need prayer warriors in every corner of our country. Even if Mr. Romney is a Mormon, He will not preach to us, he cannot, for his religion won’t allow it, it would be irresponsible. It would be giving us half knowledge and making us accountable but not fully, and he would be eternally damned for it. And as our Constitution barrs us from having a National Religion – He cannot teach us all. So I do Pray for him to come to the White house – to save us from a Muslim White House, or just a White House that is led by confusion, or simply fear. I hope you can look into getting some black powder weapons until you can sue the idiots. WE won our contry with Black powder weapons. They are not even classified as guns. Reproduction Civil War Rifles, or Pistols. or Rev War Brown Bess, or Charleyvilles. Look them up in Dixie Gun Works. God Bless.
