    This may have many meanings and definitions depending on ones point of view. To me within my subjective preference it sounds like he is defending his family from a tyrannical government and all the lies we are told until you cant take anymore and you have to look for the spirit as a solution, no one wants war we want peace but we will defend our freedom from big government if we have to. Patrick Henry's words still shutter the Feds today. our children have to fight back for us and we sat idled, consumed in materialism, sports, bad food and etc. The hedge fund hyenas and zombie bankers and the fed are the cause of most of our problems today. I think its brilliant because whether he meant it or not today this song hold's true. Most of our amendments are being gutted as we speak, the line when (there's a gun and ammunition just inside the door way use it in emergency to protect your self from Tierney) 2nd amendment.He then says better to pray to god as the solution rather than to use the gun. Then another line is pledge allegiance to the flag or any flag they offer, ( meaning we the government and the schools which they run will tell you what to pledge allegiance to as in a dictatorship) never hint at what you really feel this means that they cast out people who believe in freedom and the spirit they demonize and divide us to conquer us. Call us left right conservative liberal what ever we are divine beings with inalienable rights from our creator! Period! The End. If you are an atheist than you have limited thinking, but we still can find common ground to hang on to. I am signing out! Peace everyone. Above all things I wish you well.
