As the People Grow More Desperate. . . A Constitution in FULL Crisis

J.B. Williams


July 23, 2009

America’s extreme left tricked American moderates into supporting their candidate last November by campaigning on post-partisan cooperation and transparency in government. Six months after the election of a freshman senator with a blank résumé, a laundry list of evil associates and a life more secret than your average CIA agent, Obama’s entire history remains a mystery and his administration is the most hardcore partisan dictatorship ever experienced in the USA.Washington DC partisanship has turned into outright Obama-Pelosi dictatorship. The so-called “Commander-in-Chief” is fast losing control of his military, which is increasingly and viciously divided between those who are refusing to take orders from an overt enemy of the Constitution, and those who foolishly defend Obama’s right to destroy that which they took an oath to protect and preserve.Obama should have ended the divisions over his ineligibility long before it reached the ranks of American fighting forces. He chose not to, and instead to allow the issue to fester into a powder keg that even Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod are ill-prepared to extinguish.The US Constitution is in FULL Crisis


The US Constitution is the contract between the people and their respective states, and the federal government established by it. The document was written to form a representative republic limited in power and scope to the matters and authority delegated and ratified in the Constitution. That contract has been breached by a runaway Fed…Decades of outright destruction of the Constitution have left the nation on the brink of economic, political and social collapse. The 2006 and 2008 election cycles placed the Constitution in full crisis and the people are growing increasingly desperate for a peaceful means to restore their Constitutional Republic.An administration which does not meet constitutional standards is expected to protect and defend a contract which it does not even recognize, much less respect. The contract either stands, or it doesn’t. Based on the 2008 election, and every policy put in place since, the contract does not stand at present. If the Constitution no longer stands, then the federal government which it established, no longer stands in authority. Tyranny reigns… The States Take Action


Ignored by federal public servants and cut off from any access to peaceful means of redress in congress or the courts, the people and their states are forced to take matters into their own hands.A “constitutional” interpretation of the Constitution is in order, as the people begin to demand that a runaway Fed blatantly acting against the best interest of its people, return to a constitutional foundation, or risk being stripped of all power and abolished.The federal government is the product of the Constitution, the contract between the people and their states which established and assigned specific limited powers to the federal government, which is to serve at the pleasure of the states and the people.If the Constitution no longer stands, then there is NO federal government. The federal government exists only as a result of the Constitution. A very real crisis is at hand…As a result, more than 32 states are rushing to pass Tenth Amendment legislation intended to remind the federal government of this reality. But the Obama regime is not listening.Many of those states are also passing second amendment protections for their citizens, making it illegal for the Fed to threaten private gun rights, even in cases of “Martial Law.” But the Fed has rejected all such state bills, claiming that “federal laws supersede state laws.”Reacting to an “unconstitutional” letter from Obama’s ATF, which puts Tennessee on notice that the Fed will not recognize laws passed by the individual states under Tenth Amendment rights, Tennessee State Rep. Matthew Hill points out, --“Montana, Tennessee and all others, are SOVEREIGN states not subservient to the federal government. The Fed can send us letters all day long and it doesn’t change the fact that we are allowed to govern ourselves, under the 10th amendment of the US Constitution.” A “constitutional” interpretation of the Constitution


All constitutional text must be read within the context of Amendment Ten… which clearly states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”Does the Constitution delegate the power to “confiscate and redistribute private wealth” to the federal government?Does it delegate power to force “Cap and Trade” or so-called “Universal Health Care” upon the people and the states?Does it delegate the power over private industry, such as banking, auto manufacturing, energy and the likes? – Or the power to disarm American citizens under any set of circumstances, real or imaginary?No such powers were delegated to the federal government under the US Constitution. Unlike many ill-informed US citizens, Obama & Co. knows it. But they don’t care…Since no clause exists in the Constitution which specifically assigns any of these powers to the Fed, Amendment Ten applies… “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” The Second Amendment Example


Each clause of the Constitution must be read within the context of the Tenth Amendment. Power and authority is either specifically delegated to the Fed in the text of the Constitution, specifically withheld from the Fed by way of the Bill of Rights, or in the absence of any such reference to power and authority, the Tenth Amendment applies.In the case of gun rights, the Founders specifically denied the Fed any power via the Bill of Rights, specifically prohibiting the Fed from playing around with the people’s right to keep and bear arms.“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” –Yet, operating in direct contradiction to this Second Amendment language, the federal government has assumed a power not assigned to it by the states, to regulate the right of the people to keep and bear arms. A case of the people’s past silence, being intentionally misinterpreted as their consent, which allowed the fed to step across boundaries it is specifically prohibited from crossing in the Bill of Rights.As a result, the states have been forced to restate their border sovereignty and state rights in new state sponsored legislation, including Second Amendment protections for their citizens who wish to keep and bear arms, whether anti-second amendment leftists in Washington DC like it or not.

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”

My home state of Tennessee passed both Tenth Amendment and Second Amendmentlegislation, supported in such number as to override our Democrat governor’s attempts to veto.But Obama’s Fed responded by issuing a letter, under his Justice Department headed by Obama buddy Eric Holder, on the letterhead of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms signed by Assistant Director Carson Carroll, advising the state that “federal laws supersede states laws.”Like hell they do!The states DO NOT serve at the pleasure of the Fed. The Fed exists and serves at the pleasure of the states, a FACT that most states seem in a rush to point out to Obamanation.The US Constitution supersedes both state and federal laws. Don’t confuse the US Constitution with federal laws passed by congress or passed by judicial fiat via the courts. Federal laws take precedent over state laws ONLY in matters specifically delegated to the federal government in the Constitution. If no such authority is assigned to the Fed, then no such power exists at the Fed.When the federal government makes laws pertaining to matters NOT assigned to it under the US Constitution, which it has had a habit of doing for decades now, both in congress and in the judicial branch, the states are in NO WAY bound by those laws. Those laws are by definition, unconstitutional, no matter how they were passed.As the Second Amendment makes it quite clear that the federal government has NO power to regulate the people’s right to keep and bear arms, and the Tenth Amendment clearly states that “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”- Obama’s Fed, Justice Department and ATF, have NO constitutional authority over the states in the matter…Tennessee State Rep. Matthew Hill is exactly right. They (the Fed) can send threatening letters all day long and those letters are completely irrelevant, as they are at odds with the Constitution. The ATF letter relates to federal laws written on matters NOT assigned to the federal government to begin with, matters therefore reserved to the states and the people under the Tenth Amendment.Even the overly politicized US Supreme Court has recently defended Second and Tenth Amendment rights in its related rulings.The Question of Enforcement


Clearly, Obama and Co. think they won the right to run roughshod over the states and the people last fall. If our Founders had given us a pure democracy, they would be right. But in a Constitutional Representative Republic, they are dead wrong!Still, it’s also clear that they intend to force their will upon the masses, regardless of public or state dissent, or constitutional limitations. The “silent majority” has been silent for so long, that modern leftist think that they are now the new majority, free to run roughshod over the new “silent minority.”Under this fantasy, they proclaim the right to ram their leftist agenda down everyone else’s throat. “We won - you lost—so shut up and take it!”… is the general sentiment displayed by O-bots on message boards across the blogosphere…That sentiment has now reached within the ranks of the US Military, where a growing number of soldiers are beginning to challenge Obama’s right to issue orders and Obama minions are publicly attacking them with a vengeance. The heated chatter got so vicious on Military.com last week, that the publication removed ALL comments on the subject from its web site before the discussion could spin out of control.Active duty soldiers are refusing Obama orders. Reservists are refusing recall and deployment orders. Retired Navy Commander Walter Fitzpatrick has filed criminal “treason” charges against Obama. Flight Surgeon, Lt. Col. Dr. David Earl-Graeff has sent a letter to Sec. of Defense Gates, stating the following…

“Enough is enough! You must be aware at this point of the tempest brewing among the Rank and File. I am writing you in an effort to appeal to your sense of concern for the Military; a concern we share not only for the Military as a whole but for each and every individual who wears the Uniform in the Service of our Country. I am in this regard specifically asking you for your help. I implore you to not wait until the “pot boils over” and we find ourselves in total disarray. –I am convinced, beyond any doubt, that the moral well being and efficiency of our fighting forces to defend our Country is soon to be hanging in a precarious balance if not already. In my humble estimation this is NOT a theoretical possibility to construct a thesis or a contingency plan about. It is a reality and is happening right now. Resolution of this issue must be accomplished in the most expeditious manner available at your disposal to gain immediate relief to those of us who are struggling to fully comply with our sworn Oath to the Constitution while being conflicted by questions relating to the qualifications of the POTUS to hold the office in full and absolute compliance with the Natural Born Citizen Clause.”

So, how does Obama plan to enforce his global vision upon the masses when the US Constitution which provides for a federal government, delegates no such authority and an increasing number of soldiers and law enforcement are taking a stand against a “potential domestic enemy” in an effort to uphold their oath to protect and defend the US Constitution? Once Silent running out of Tolerance


Convinced that the Constitution is under constant threat from within today, Americans normally happy to avoid the subject of politics altogether are building a head of steam to thwart the current constitutional crisis. They are erecting lines of defense at the state borders before Obama can capitalize on one of his many manufactured disasters by removing the people’s right to stand opposed.His Department of Homeland Security has already redefined “domestic terrorist” to include anyone who disagrees with Obama. His minions have already labeled anyone concerned with the Constitution, “birthers,” in a childish name-calling effort to silence the dissent. His left-wing press has affixed the title of “racist” to anyone who dare doubt Obama’s anti-American Marxist agenda, or his mystery messiah status.Pelosi has made certain that Republicans have no voice in congress and Holder has made certain that the people will not find a legal forum to resolve Obama’s overt agenda or hidden past in any court.Growing increasingly desperate to restore the Constitution and fast running out of peaceful means of doing so, the people find themselves in a very real Constitutional Crisis. Peacefully Forcing the Fed to Reverse Course


With a tone deaf Fed, the people are turning to their state legislators and the states are moving to close down the Fed. Led by the Tenth Amendment Center, state legislators are rushing to reclaim freedom and liberty on behalf of their citizens.


Step One – Tenth Amendment Affirmation

Step Two – Second Amendment Affirmation

Step Three – Kicking the Fed out of the States

Step Four – Shutting down the Fed by cutting off 97% of Fed funding by repeal of the 16th Amendment

Step Five – Repeal of the 17th Amendment, removing every current member of the senate and sending new representatives of states right to establish a new constitutional senate.

Step Six – cleaning house in Washington DC and establishing a constitutional limited government which will once again serve at the pleasure and benefit of the states and the people

Unlike drug rehab, it doesn’t take twelve steps to reinstate a constitutional Fed, although it could take a twelve step program to break many modern Democrats addiction to free-stuff from the public trough.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government...”

If the people fail to quickly alter a Fed run wild, via their state legislatures, they will be left with no option but to abolish and start over from scratch.Republicans in Washington DC have either lost their way or lost their nerve. As a result, they have lost all power.But Republicans, Independents and even Blue Dog Democrats across the nation in state legislatures, are acting in defense of their citizens and the Constitution, and the people MUST take a stand with those state legislators, immediately.Visit the Tenth Amendment Center for an up-to-date picture of where your state stands in the march to reclaim states rights and reign in the runaway Fed.Contact your state legislators and get behind their efforts to affirm state sovereignty and rights. Even Obama does not have the power to force his will upon fifty states who stand united and opposed!

WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING


While you were sleeping

you saw evil all around and did not recognize it

you heard deception yet did not seek truth

you smelled the stench of death and did not mourn

you proclaimed "I am proud to be an american"

you were told we must fight evil

you were told we must defeat those who would harm us

you were told these things and more

from the mouths of liars who speak those words of themselves

you were told we are the greatest nation on earth

the most righteous, the chosen, the Light of the World

God bless america you proclaimed

but your ignorance has blinded you

your apathy has hidden from you

that which america has become

and now is

and many will realize but too late

that america is changed forever

changed from what the founders envisioned

the great opportunity to create a nation

principled in the knowledge of the truth

that each individual

has supremely endowed rights

that cannot be subjugated

by men or groups of men

changed to the naked truth

that is now revealed

that america is but another worldly empire

intent on destruction

principled on greed

principled on hatred

principled on lust

principled on deceit

clothed in the deceptive cloak of righteousness

while rotting from within

holding hostage the willing and unwilling

extorting, deceiving those from whom it is made

punishing, ostracizing those among the many

who remain vigilant

America the whore,

america, the ruthless beastof darkness

as the sheep are led to slaughter

so you will be among their numbers

a hundred, thousand, million, and more

one of the flock of those who like you

were lulled to sleep by the empty promise of gratification

and by the false promise of riches and comfort

incited by visions of far-away conquerors

ignoring the cries of the vanquished

fearful of suffering and without dignity

fostering indifference and intolerance

told lies many in number

by those whom you believe are righteous

you who are content to sleep in comfort

and dream of possibilities of profit and entertainment

you accept lies as truth

injustice as justice

wealth as prosperity

slavery as freedom

you slumber in your righteousness

not remembering nor caring what is freedom

not knowing justice

not knowing truth

death is your mantra

your eyes have been blinded

your ears have been deafened

your heart has been hardened

you cannot see your own tomorrow

even for the sake of the ones

that will come after you

The fruit has fallen away

and spoiled with decay

and now the tree bears no fruit

for as the caretakers sleep

the tree withers and becomes lifeless

and with the passing of time

your children will awaken

and when their suffering becomes too great to bear

then they will cry out

I see the evil

I hear the deception

I smell the stench of death

I seek the truth

I seek justice

I seek freedom

and for them the struggle to escape from the bondage

you have willfully left as their inheritance

will be their struggle

faint memories and haunting ghosts of Freedom

will be of no consequence

for it is to be their struggle

to regain that which was lost

by the complacency of their forefathers

and perhaps they will know in their hearts

that they are worthy of the Freedom

that many before them had denied and forgotten

that they are more than what they have been born into

and so it came to passwhile you were sleeping

Is this your call to action?

You're Not the Boss of Me!
July 4 version

by Larken Rose

Delivered in Philadelphia to a crowd of celebrants in front of Independence Hall on July 4, 2009

Two hundred and thirty-three years ago, in Philadelphia, a bunch of guys got together and wrote a letter to their king. The letter was very eloquent and well thought out, but it basically boiled down to this:

Dear King George,

You're not the boss of us!

Sincerely,

A Bunch of Troublemakers

That's essentially what the Declaration of Independence was: a bunch of radicals declaring that they would no longer recognize the right of their king to rule them, at all, ever again. They went on to create a new boss, which turned into a new oppressor, but we'll get to that in a moment. First, let's consider the essence of that attitude: "You're not the boss of me!"

This July 4, like every year, millions of Americans are celebrating Independence Day with various parades, picnics, fireworks, and so on. But how many of those people celebrating have ever actually considered what the Declaration was actually about and what the colonists actually did? The colonists did not merely beg the king to change his ways. In fact, the Declaration explains how they had tried that, to no avail. Instead, the colonists were doing something far more drastic.

In short, they committed treason. They broke the law. They disobeyed their government. They were traitors, criminals, and tax cheats. The Boston Tea Party was not merely a tax protest, but open lawlessness. Furthermore, truth be told, some of the colonists were even cop-killers. At Lexington, when King George's "law enforcers" told the colonists to lay down their guns, the colonists responded with, "No, you're not the boss of us!" (Well, that was the meaning, if not the exact verbiage.) And so we had "The Shot Heard 'Round the World," widely regarded as the beginning of the American Revolution.

Looking back now, we know the outcome. We know who eventually won, and we don't mind cheering for the rebels. But make no mistake: when you cheer for the founders of this country, you are cheering for law-breakers and traitors. As well you should. But, for all the flag-waving and celebrating that goes on every July 4, do Americans actually believe in what the colonists did? Do they really believe in the attitude expressed in the Declaration of Independence? Are they really still capable of supporting a mantra of "You're not the boss of me!"?

In, short, no. Imagine the equivalent of what the colonists did so many years ago being done today. Imagine a group of people writing a letter to the United States government, sending a letter to Congress and to the President, saying that they would no longer pay federal taxes, that they would no longer obey federal laws, and that they would resist -- by force, if necessary -- any attempt by federal agents to enforce those laws. How would a group that did such things be viewed today by most Americans?

They would be viewed as nut cases, scofflaws, and terrorists, despicable criminals and malcontents. They would be scorned as the scum of the earth, despised by just about everyone who today celebrates Independence Day.

How ironic.

So why the double standard? Why would the American public today condemn the very same attitudes and behaviors that they glorify and praise in the context of the American Revolution? Quite simply, it's because, for all the proud talk of "land of the free and home of the brave," the spirit of resistance -- the courage to say "You're not the boss of us!" -- has been trained out of the American people.

We have become a nation of wimps.

For years and years in the churches and schools, on the news, in the media, and from everywhere around us, we have been taught one thing above all else: that obedience to authority is the highest virtue, and that disobedience is the worst sin. As a result, even most of those who now claim to be zealous advocates for individual rights and personal liberty will almost always couch their "demands" with disclaimers that, of course, their efforts for justice will be done "within the system," and that they would never advocate anything "illegal." They claim to be devout proponents of freedom, and yet all they ever do is seek a political solution, whether through lobbying of politicians, elections, or other government-approved means.

Of course, government never approves of anything that might actually endanger government power. As the bumper sticker says, "If voting made a difference, it would be illegal." And why should civilized people assume that change must be done "legally" and "within the system"? That is obviously not what the Declaration of Independence was about. In fact, the Declaration states quite plainly that when a government ceases to be a protector of individual liberty, it is not only the right, but the duty of the people to alter or abolish that form of government. In other words, when the government becomes an oppressor, instead of a protector -- as is obviously the case today -- the people are morally obligated to adopt an attitude of, "You're not the boss of us!"

So how many Americans are doing that? Almost none. Instead, even the most vocal critics of corruption and injustice usually do little more than bang their heads against a brick wall, begging, in half a dozen different ways, for the tyrants to please be nicer to us. Meanwhile, they go to great lengths to distance themselves from people like me, for fear of what the general public might think of them. As a result, I believe the general public and those in government view them pretty much as I view them: as harmless and irrelevant conformists, destined to forever beg for freedom and never achieve it.

Make no mistake, begging and whining is not what the Declaration of Independence was about. It was about breaking the law when the law is unjust. It was about committing treason when the rulers became oppressive. It was about disobedience -- civil disobedience when effective, and not-so-civil disobedience when necessary. It was about open resistance, including violent resistance when called for.

So where is that attitude today? Where is the candidate advocating such a thing? Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, Samuel Adams -- where are the modern equivalents? For all the whining about extremists, where are those willing to openly resist injustice? Not only don't most Americans believe in resisting tyranny, they feel extremely uncomfortable just hearing others talk about it, even in abstract terms -- like this.

Maybe it's just that we're not quite at the level of oppression to justify resistance. Is that it? Hardly. If two or three percent taxation justified rebellion in 1776, why doesn't 50 percent taxation justify it now? If a few puny excise taxes on tea and pieces of paper justified it then, why don't the myriad of unavoidable, crushing taxes at all levels, and the hordes of callous, vindictive tax collectors justify it now? If the relatively unusual cases of Redcoats abusing colonists justified it then, why doesn't it justify it when American police see no problem with randomly stopping, detaining, interrogating, and searching anyone they want, whenever they want, for any reason or no reason at all?

Does anyone think Thomas Jefferson, if he were alive today, would quietly allow himself to be strip-searched, and allow his belongings to be rummaged through, by some brain-dead TSA thug? Read the Fourth Amendment. They had a revolution over that sort of thing.

Does anyone think that Patrick Henry would take kindly to being robbed blind to pay for whatever war-mongering the politicians wanted to engage in this week? Read what the Founders said about standing armies. They had a revolution over that sort of thing.

Do you think James Madison would go along with being disarmed by the various state and federal control freaks? Read the Second Amendment. They had a revolution over that sort of thing.

Do you think George Washington would be happy to have both his earnings and savings constantly looted by a parasite class, to pay for all manner of wealth redistribution, political handouts, and other socialist garbage? Do you think Thomas Paine would gladly be extorted to give all his money to some giant, failed corporation or some huge international bank? Do you think the founders would have quietly gone along with what this country has become today? Do you think they would have done nothing more than vote or whine?

Well, the founders are dead. And, unfortunately, so is their spirit of resistance. In short, just about all of the flag-waving and celebrating that happens every July 4 is nothing but empty hypocrisy. How many Americans today can say, loudly and proudly, like they mean it, "Give me liberty or give me death!"? Or, at least, in the modern vernacular, "You're not the boss of me!"?

Anyone?

In this nation that imagines itself to be the land of the free and the home of the brave, where are those who dare to resist or even dare to talk about it? And I don't mean voting, or whining to your congressman, or begging your masters to not whip you so hard. I'm talking about resisting, refusing to obey.

America, where is your Independence Day pride now? Exactly what are you proud of?

I have a message for you, from a guy named Sam -- Samuel Adams, that is. Yeah, the beer guy. But he did a little more for this country than make beer. Here is his message:

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

When's the last time you heard a modern so-called "statesman" say something like that?

So what happened? When did Americans lose their ability to say, "You're not the boss of me," and why? Yes, most people are scared, and for good reason. With the capacity for violence of the current police state, and the willingness of the politicians and their thugs to crush anyone who threatens their power, everyone has to choose his battles carefully and decide for himself what he's willing to risk, what is worth fighting for and what isn't.

That makes sense, but there is more to it than just fear. Because not only won't most Americans resist, but they will condemn anyone who does. If you do what the founders did, most people in this country would call you a tax cheat, a malcontent, a criminal, a traitor, even a terrorist. Why? Why do Americans now vehemently condemn those who say and do exactly what the Founders did a couple hundred years ago? When did our priorities and view of the world change so drastically, and why?

I'll tell you why. Gradually, and very systematically, we have been trained to measure our own worth, not by what we produce, not by how we treat other people, but by how well we obey authority. Consider the term "law-abiding taxpayer." How many people wear that label as a badge of honor? "I am a law-abiding taxpayer!" When they say that, they mean "I'm a good person." But is that what it really means?

Well, "law-abiding" just means that you do whatever the politicians tell you to do. We speak with great reverence of this thing called "the law," as if it is the decree of the gods, which no decent human being would dare to disobey. But what is it really? It's whatever the politicians decide to command you to do. Why on earth would anyone think that obedience to a bunch of liars and crooks is some profound moral obligation? Is there any reason for us to treat with reverence such commands and demands? No rational reason, no. The only reason we do it is because we have been trained to do it.

Some might point out that obeying the laws against theft and murder is a good thing to do. Well, yes and no. It is good to refrain from committing theft and murder, but it is not because "the law" says so. It is because theft and murder are inherently wrong, as they infringe upon the rights of others. And that was true before any politician passed a "law" about it, and will be true even if they "legalize" theft and murder (as every government has done, in the name of "taxation" and "war"). What is right and wrong does not at all depend upon what is "legal" or "illegal." And if you need politicians to tell you what is right and what is wrong, you need your head examined. Instead, you should judge the validity of so-called "laws" by whether they match what is inherently right and wrong. Thomas Jefferson put it this way:

"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because the law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."

So why should anyone be proud of being "law-abiding," when all it means is blindly obeying whatever arbitrary commands the parasite class spews out this week? And pride in being a "taxpayer" is no better, since all that phrase means is that you give the politicians lots of money. When, exactly, did obeying politicians and giving them money become the measure of whether you're a good person?

Consider Nazi Germany. Were the law-abiding taxpayers in Nazi Germany the good guys? No. By obeying the so-called "laws" of that time, the majority allowed, or even assisted in, a nearly incomprehensible level of evil. And by being "taxpayers," they provided the funding for it. No, the good people in Germany were the criminals and tax cheats, who refused to assist, even passively, in the oppressions done in the name of "government."

The same is true under the regimes of Stalin, Lenin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro -- you can go right down the list (and it's a very long list). Under every nasty regime in history, the obedient subjects who quietly did as they were told, the law-abiding taxpayers, were not the good guys. The law-breakers and rebels, the so-called traitors and terrorists, those were the good guys. How about in this country, when slavery was legal? The cowards were the ones obeying the law, while the good guys broke it.

How about here, today? Is it good to fund what the government is doing? Do you have some moral obligation to give your "fair share" of however many thousands of dollars, so Obama can give it to his banker buddies? Is it noble to fund whatever war the politicians decide to engage in this week? Do you like paying for the detention and torture of people who haven't been convicted, or even charged with any crime? (By the way, instead of doing away with that, Obama just gave it a new name: preventative detention.) Is it some great virtue to have helped to finance the police state growing up all around you, on both the federal and state levels? In short, is being a "law-abiding taxpayer" really something you should be proud of, or is it something you should be ashamed of?

Over time we have forgotten a very important secret -- a secret the control freaks don't want you to know -- a secret some of the Founders hinted at, though even most of them didn't seem to fully grasp it. Ready for it?

You own yourself.

You are not the property of the politicians, or anyone else. I own me, and you own you. Each of you owns himself. Sounds simple enough, right? And most people respond with, "Well duh, of course. That's no secret. We knew that." But in reality most people don't know that.

If you own yourself, would anyone have the right to take, without your consent, the fruits of your labor -- what you earn, with your time and effort? Does anyone have the right to take that from you by force? Of course not, most will answer.

Really? And what if they call it "taxation"?

"Oh, well, that's different."

No, it isn't.

If you own yourself, would anyone have the right to force you to pay rent for a house you already paid for, under threat of taking your house away? Of course not.

What if they call it "property taxes"?

"Oh, that's different."

No, it isn't.

And you can go right down the list: if you truly own yourself, the vast majority of so-called "laws," at all levels, are absolutely illegitimate. As Jefferson put it, any so-called "law" that infringes upon individual liberty -- which is dang near all of them -- is inherently bogus.

But let's take it one step further. If you own yourself -- your life, liberty, and property -- doesn't that imply that you have the right to defend those things from any and all aggressors? Yes. What if the aggressors call themselves "government" and call their attacks and robberies "law" and "taxes"? You still have the right. Changing the name of an act cannot make something bad into something good. And if you have the right to defend your life, liberty, and property from all aggressors, it stands to reason that you have the right to equip yourself to do so. In other words, you have the right to be armed -- the right to possess the equipment to exert whatever force is necessary to repel any attempts to infringe upon your rights to life, liberty, and property.

I know it makes people uncomfortable (especially people who work for the government) when I say the following: I want every sane, adult American to have the ability to use force, including deadly force, against government agents. I don't want people randomly gunning down cops, but I do want the people to retain the ability to forcibly resist their own government. The very concept bothers a lot of people, but what is the alternative? The alternative is something a lot scarier: that the people should not have the means to resist their own government.

But, once again, even most people who claim to be vehemently pro-freedom, don't like to talk about what that really means. Many "gun rights" organizations, for example, go to great lengths to beg the politicians to let them remain armed. Why? At Lexington, when the British troops told the colonists to lay down their weapons, what was the response? Did the colonists say, "Aw, can't we keep them, pretty please?" No, they had a very different attitude, something along the lines of, "You're not the boss of us!"

Click to order The Iron Web by Larken RoseIf you own yourself -- and this is a big one -- it is not only your right but your most profound obligation as a human being to judge for yourself what is right and wrong and to act accordingly. But what if people claiming to be "authority" want to force you to do something contrary to what you deem to be right? Do you have an obligation to obey them and ignore your own conscience? No. What if their threats are called "legislation"? It makes no difference.

You are always, at all times, in every situation, obligated to do what you deem right, no matter what so-called "government" and "authority" and "law" have to say about it. And when the tyrants and control freaks, authoritarian thugs and megalomaniacs, try to tell you that you are an evil, nasty, despicable criminal and traitor for daring to think for yourself, you have a right and duty to stand firm and say with confidence, "You are not the boss of me!"

Re: As the People Grow More Desperate. . . A Constitution in FULL Crisis
The article was a very good read and informative, especially in regard to what's now taking place within the military. I view it as evidence that the information I received last week is solid.

Here is what I wrote about that information:



Confirmed: Russia Engineering U.S. Civil War Via Obama Citizenship Controversy


My source has confirmed to me what up until now I have only been able to speculate was the case: Russian strategy is designed to split U.S. military forces between those that back their agent provocateur, Barack Obama, and those who back the Constitution.

It has been obvious throughout to those few of us who are aware of the elaborate deception carried out by the Kremlin communist criminals (who went to the extraordinary length, even for them, of staging the collapse of their own empire) that the installation of Barack Obama as president of the United States was their insidious doing. It is also well known by those in what I'll call the "Golitsynian" community that the ultimate goal of the worldwide communist revolution (begun by Lenin and continued today by the current occupants of the Kremlin and their subordinates in capitols throughout the world) is the destruction of the United States militarily, thus making the enslavement of the entire world at the hands of communists absolutely unstoppable. What has not been definitively known, however, is precisely the strategy they plan to employ in the "Final Phase" of their plan. Until now.

I have just been in contact with one of the foremost analysts of Russian/communist strategy, a man well connected with high-level sources in Moscow, and it has been explained to him and thus to me in no uncertain terms that civil war in the United States is in fact the end game that Kremlin strategists are in the process of implementing.

The information about communist agent (whether witting or unwitting is irrelevant) Obama's unquestionably disqualifying citizenship status has been available to be presented in the media, as well as among our nation's governmental elites, since last summer, and its suppression (by order of the Kremlin) was to be expected (for the obvious purpose of getting him elected). But, there are many in the communist stable the Kremlin could have picked to ascend the highest office in the land in order to continue the sovietization process in this country (and indeed Obama is not the first of their agents to be placed there), so the choosing of Obama, a man clearly disqualified from serving, indicated that an extraordinary operation was underway. It indicated, one way or another, that the Final Phase of the Shelepin Plan has been launched.

But what exactly is the Final Phase of the Shelepin Plan? The Kremlin strategists, having such an enormous strategic advantage as well as having (and in part as a result of)arranged the chess board of geo-politics and domestic U.S. conditions as they have, have innumerable options. The destruction of the American economy that is ongoing is their doing. Islamic terrorism is their proxy. Kremlin co-conspirators have taken power in the majority of countries in the world. This offers them many options to orchestrate the destruction of the "Main Enemy," and it is easy to speculate on the many moves they might make.

But there is no longer a need to speculate. I have absolute trust in my source, both in his credibility and his judgment, and my source has informed me that the U.S. military is to be split into opposing factions over the Obama citizenship issue, and civil war which will weaken and ultimately destroy the country will ensue. This is not his opinion, it is not the opinion of his sources. It is, rather, the plan. It is what the Kremlin intends. It is the Final Phase.

As the issue of Obama's citizenship is increasingly covered by the media, know that if it were so desired by the Kremlin, it would just as easily be suppressed. Now we know definitively why it won't be. Now we know the strategy that will lead to our destruction.

Is it time to shoot the bastards?

"When complying with the tyranny becomes more difficult than just shooting the bastards, the bastards will begin to be assassinated, and in rather large numbers." -Liz Michael, 2001


All Hail Fatherland Security
Has the time come to shoot the bastards?
by Liz Michael

All Hail Fatherland Security, which will surely keep us all safe.

Yeah, right.

This column will call the current security over liberty mania "Fatherland Security" from now on, because it is something that rightly belongs in the Third Reich and not America.

The security of the people of the United States has not increased one whit since 9-11. Airport security is still being administered by the same minimum wage noodniks that administered it on 9-10, only now, those noodniks have secure federal jobs at inflated salaries. These noodniks seem to catch medal of honor winners, Green Party members, grannies with knitting, white women with babies, and a Secret Service agent, and seem to be able to engage in sexual assault, but they couldn't catch Al-Qaeda trained Richard Reid, nor could they apparently catch the bombers of American Airlines Flight 587, TWA800, Swiss Air or Egypt Air, and probably not the real culprits of Pan Am 103. And the government has shown us exactly what it will do in terrorist attacks: cover them up and make them look like accidents.

And that's exactly what they'll do when terrorists attack our nuclear power plants, our electric grid, our water and sewage systems, our food, our computer systems and our beloved sports stadiums. They have shown that they will never admit to a successful terrorist attack unless it's caught on camera in the act, and cannot be explained away in any other manner.

And the only thing that our glorious Reichsführer has seriously attacked is our civil liberties. And he has the nerve to say that we who love liberty are "aiding the terrorists" when we dare to call him on it.

And there seems to be increased calls for national ID's, de facto national ID's through driver's licenses, biometric scans, checkpoints, and even chipping people.

Has the time come to shoot the bastards?

Some people on either side of this equation are probably wondering the answer to the age old magic question. "Is it time to shoot the bastards?"

I can give you the answer very succinctly, and a lot of you are not going to like it.

When complying with the tyranny becomes more difficult than just shooting the bastards, the bastards will begin to be assassinated, and in rather large numbers.

Yeah, I said that.

Let me say it again. The powers that be are crafting a system by which they hope to tag each and every individual in the country, perhaps on the planet, with something substantial in the way of authority identifying people and tracking their movements. All in the name of security.

Of course, that's going to create a very serious crisis of conscientious objectors to this system, which more and more resembles John the Revelator's Mark of the Beast, and better resembles one of Hitler's wet dreams rather than anything which should exist in a free country. Yet that specter of rebellion, stark as it may be to the statists, is not their biggest problem. And the specter of identity fraud, which most assuredly will catch up with anything the governments issue . . . just ask any law enforcement agent assigned to a credit card fraud case . . . isn't even the biggest problem of such a system.

The biggest problem is the bureaucracy. Bureaucracy is going to be needed to implement this plan. You would think this would be a simple thing, right? Just ID everyone, get their print, their retinal scan, their DNA, whatever, positively assign them a number, or a barcode, and everything will be copasetic. Right? Not hardly. The bureaucrats who will administer an ID system will not be able to get past one small solitary detail in their zeal to get everything right: they will not be able to positively identify everyone.

Now, theoretically, that small little problem SHOULDN'T matter. But it does. Trust me. There will be a significant point made to "identify" everyone correctly. Meaning you will have to have sufficient documentation already to be entered into this system. Many people will simply not have it. They will not be able to prove who they are, positively, to some flunkie at a DMV counter. And because they will not, the flunkies will not issue these ID's to everyone, even though it would more effectively accomplish their purpose if they simply accepted everyone who complied. Many people who come forth to comply won't be accepted. Because they will be rejected, the entire society will look at them as an outcast. And the more unstable of those rejectees will snap.

These people will represent a far more serious threat to the lives of the administrators of this tyranny than any conscientious objector or political activist.

For example, a cop will pull over someone who registers a false document or a card whose magstripe has been damaged. This officer, on a power trip, or under order of superiors, will get a bee in their bonnet and attempt to throw EVERYTHING at someone who doesn't pass their ID test. And some of these people will snap under the pressure. Dead cop. Or maybe dead citizens, whose friends and relatives then go after the surviving cop. Or his family. Or after all cops.

It's probably not going to be what is commonly thought of as a "patriot" that fires the first shot. It's probably not going to be a political activist from the left, the right or the center. Most of us would rather sue you than shoot you, and most of us have heavily ingrained value systems which restrain us from outright whacking some of these noodniks and shooting them where they stand, although they do deserve it. The first shooting of the bastards will probably be by average citizens who tried to comply but were not allowed to, and whose lives were overcomplicated by that inability to comply. The subsequent shootings of the bastards will be by common criminals who have hated authority all their lives and find that they can now easily assassinate an LEO and get away with it.

And you won't be able to stop it. Because you won't have a clue as to whom to look for. And it will spell your ultimate downfall.

If you asked me ten years ago whether the government and even non-elected non-governmental bodies like AAMVA and Oracle would even be stupid enough to attempt this, I would have doubted this. But alas, you ARE that stupid.

Why the bastards will be shot

Now that I've told you when the bastards will be shot, and by whom, let me tell you over WHAT the bastards will be shot:

1. The National ID Craze

This is the move to install a mandatory National ID, either directly, or by default, through the drivers' license, as well as proposals to install a "trusted travelers" card, which will eventually evolve into an internal passport as its use is expanded from airlines to buses, trains, and even the nation's highways.

I want to set aside for the moment the millions of conscientious objectors which will exist to such a system. I want to focus on the bigger government problem of valid documentation of willing participants.

Even now, getting proper documents, even if you are a legitimate citizen, has become excruciatingly difficult. The state now claims that in order to claim your kids on your tax return you must get them a Social Security number. Yet do you know how difficult it is to actually GET a card with your actual Social Security number on it? Do you know how many documents you have to show in order to get it? Do you realize how difficult it is for a born citizen to actually prove they are such? Have you had to actually do it lately? Many jobs want to actually see the documents before they allow you to work. In many communities it is easier to get welfare than get a job, because of this.

Not that long ago, I had an experience where I witnessed a Motor Vehicles Department employee commonly deny most people at his station a right to an ID or a drivers license because they had insufficient proof of who they were. He was going to deny me an ID also. Except that I had the state of Arizona's own legal requirements in front of me, and showed him that I HAD the documents and he HAD to grant it. The only reason I really even wanted it was to easily buy firearms from an FFL. But most people aren't at Motor Vehicles in order to buy firearms. They are there because they want to drive, without being hassled by police, sheriffs and the highway patrol. Usually they want to drive in order to work. Most people are willing to comply with this, despite several legal rulings which have guaranteed the right to freely travel by road without licensing if you are not doing so as a commercial enterprise. But it is becoming increasingly difficult to comply with all this folderol. And here was this total schmuck ILLEGALLY denying people these items.

Envision the following, you law enforcement officers, because it is going to be a common occurrence. You are going to pull someone over, and harass them about not having the proper documents. You are going attempt to confiscate their vehicle. They, of course, need that vehicle, and need to get to where they need to go without your harassment. They are going to snap, and they are going to shoot you dead, and your wife will be a widow and your children orphans.

Or envision an air traveler, who has honestly tried to comply with all these tyrannical regulations, yet has been harassed, maybe even sexually violated, perhaps even unduly arrested. One of these people is going to snap. They are going to go home, return to the airport, pull out a gun, and shoot you, Mr. Airport Security flunkie. Or their husband will. You will be dead. Maybe your entire crew will be dead. Why? Because someone just could not bear all the folderol they were forced to go through.

Or envision this: the real criminal. The real criminal who has to get something done, and you, Mr. Fatherland Security flunkie, just happen to be in his way, and slowing him down. You will be killed. You will be sacrificed. It won't be for the most part, the top of the line law enforcement agents who will be killed by these criminals. It won't even be line cops who are engaging them in a chase or are holding a warrant for their arrest. It will be LEO's who never see it coming, never know they're dealing with a thug. It will just be a matter of their being a target rich environment, and you, Mr. Fatherland Security flunkie, being one of the front line targets.

And this is from the people who want to comply, but can't.

Add to the mix the people who refuse to comply, not a small number of whom have vowed to assassinate any agent attempting to administer such a system directly upon them.

Let me spell it out for you graduates of the Los Angeles Unified School District. If an internal passport system, disguised under another name, becomes a reality, and people cannot freely travel between places in this nation, then those "noncompliants" who have a serious need to travel to a destination will only have one choice. They, Mr. Patrolman, will have to go through your dead body to do it. And they will. If the only way we can exercise freedom is to shoot you, then we will shoot you. You can take that to the bank.

2. Zero tolerance

With this insanity occurring in the schools, it actually has become just as easy to come to school armed. Get ready for a lot more Columbines. The so-called "Gun Free Zone" of schools essentially mandates that every student, and every teacher and principal as well, and many parents actively engaged in their child's education, be unarmed. That means they will be sitting ducks for any person at all who wants to target them.

The most likely person to target a school is a student, or former student, who, under the pressures of whatever afflicts him, goes off. Now understand this: the zero tolerance madness in school, where teachers and principals are actively looking for creative ways to oppress students, from expelling them for pointing a finger, to expelling them for drawing a gun, to expelling them for having a Tweety Bird keychain, to expelling them for wearing a sign of their heritage such as the Confederate flag or a Black Power motif, to expelling one boy for actually publicly expressing support for the NRA (this really happened in Illinois) . . . all this crap creates added stress.

Let me phrase it another way. Inequitable rules, nonsensical rules, nonlogical rules and random rules, all destabilize a society, and having such rules on a school site, or on a job site, dramatically increases stress. Such rules in reality are terror. Real terror. And a school administration which terrorizes its own students is going to have those students snap or outright rebel.

So this will be another means by which the tyrants will be shot. It will also be random. And it unfortunately will take innocent victims. Because again, it won't be the political activists whom tyrants greatly fear but who would use precision in their targets. It will be the random individual who snaps under the pressure of the tyranny.

3. The political establishment

For about 90% of the country, electoral competitiveness in most elections is nil. It has frankly now become easier to remove your congressman by shooting him than by organizing and voting him out of office. And it makes no difference what he's done.

You go on down the level, and you continually find this to be the case at almost every political level. If you are lucky, you have a 10% competitive rate. Incumbents of legislative type seats are very rarely thrown out, even if they've been caught with the proverbial "dead woman or live man". And schemes like the proposed Campaign Finance Reform only will make things worse, stifling dissent, and ensuring even the worst dregs of humanity will stay in office.

Now, I'm not advocating people go shoot their congressman to remove him from office. But I am saying that we have reached a point in most of politics where assassination really is the only effective means of removing most of the leaders. That's a tragedy. That means we no longer in reality have a modern democracy. How did we ever allow this condition to become the case?

I know you public officials will hate that I even dare to suggest such a thing. "How could she?" you'll say. But let me ask you another question. Is this really where you want to go? Is this the kind of "public servant" you want to be? One who is so protected electorally, the only way you can be removed is with a gun to your head? Wouldn't you RATHER we be able to remove you by election? Or would you PREFER that the only way we'll ever get rid of you is to shoot you?

Think about that, Mr. Elected Official.

4. The corporate establishment

While conservatives, libertarians and patriots constantly survey the tyranny of the government, they very seldom ever speak about the even more insidious tyranny of the corporation.

It really doesn't matter if your freedom of speech is stifled by Campaign Finance Reform and the Federal Elections Commission, or by a SLAPP lawsuit instituted by a corporation. It doesn't matter whether it is an elected body mandating your National ID or a private corporate body like Oracle, the effect is still the same: liberty denied. Tyranny can come in many colors, and many of the multinationals have been inflicting their tyranny on the rest of the world for so long. It is one of the reasons America is so hated abroad.

Largely in America, only the radicals on the Left have a clear grasp of what I am talking about.

Even now, everyone knows that if you are going to commit a crime, you don't want to leave a personal paper trail or electronic trail. Well what if your entire way of life becomes defined as a crime? All of a sudden, the masses of data compiled on you by credit companies and marketers for the purpose of trying to sell you something, may be used against you by a district attorney seeking to railroad you over some technicality.

Do not think for a second that anything I have said which applies to the government, or applies to law enforcement, doesn't also apply to corporations trying to do the same thing. Do not think that the officers or the workers of corporations who either do evil, or enable the government to do evil, will be spared when the time does come to shoot the bastards. Often, the rebels of the Left are FAR MORE effective in their violent response than the rebels of the right or of the center.

But again, it won't be the political activists who fire most of the first shots. It will be the victims.

5. The tax establishment

Had Timothy McVeigh, instead of blowing up the Murrah Building, blown up an IRS Service Center, he'd be a national hero.

I don't want to talk about the tax activists. Like I said earlier, most of them would rather sue than shoot.

I want to talk about Joe Sixpack, the average citizen. The IRS is universally hated. Do any of you who work for the IRS ever stop to wonder why that is? Let me sum it up for you. It is because you are duplicitous, random, and tyrannical. Tyrannical because your primary enforcement weapon is the use of state terror and intimidation. Duplicitous because you cannot even tell the truth, or administer your duty in a simple, straightforward manner. Random because the people you audit and select for criminal investigations are not selected on merit, but by your own choice.

People are sick of it and sick of you. Yes you are having a problem with noncompliance: should you be surprised? After all, the criminal penalties for failure to file are much less than the penalties for actual evasion.

And here's the kicker. You choose to be the tyrant. Yes, you do have a choice. When the Congress gives you a bunch of pabulum to enforce, you can demand clarification, and you also can refuse to enforce the law at all. Hell, you, as a government administrator, can choose to find that the Sixteenth Amendment was never ratified, and that the income tax is illegal. You can actually refuse to enforce the tax code if the tax code is unconstitutional. And whatever you find to be constitutional, you can still choose to enforce fairly instead of by intimidation. Even in the military, you have a duty to disobey orders when the orders aren't legal.

And take the IRS, and add to it every federal, state, and local taxing agency in the country. I don't honestly believe that people, for the most part, will refuse to pay a tax that is fairly levied, levied only upon those who can pay, is not unduly burdensome, and is administered truthfully, consistently, and with full disclosure. But people do object to taxing agencies stealing people's homes, livelihoods and businesses, and often conspiring to work with developers to steal prime real estate at bargain basement prices through property taxes and eminent domain confiscations.

And let's not forget the use of environmental agencies to bankrupt private property owners and steal their property.

Again, it will be the victims, not the activists, who will initiate the shooting of the bastards. Worried about who may kill you? Just look at your "victim list" sometime, and you'll gain some insight.

6. The judicial establishment

Judicial tyranny is some of the worst tyranny occurring in the country today. Judges decide what is and is not the law. They violate the law almost on a daily basis. Almost every traffic court judge violates the defendant's right to a jury trial, every single day. Every day, trial by a jury of one's peers is thwarted through voir dire. Every day, due process in criminal trials is aborted. Judges very frequently block the peoples' will and block the Constitution. Abuse of the "contempt of court" sentence and the restraining order is common.

And most judges, if they are subject to electoral approval at all, are even MORE sheltered than legislators in their incumbency. It's not surprising that courthouses are almost all moving towards metal detectors and X-rays to disarm the public. Sometimes shooting the judge is the only way to remove a judge from office, no matter how abusive he is.

7. The child protective services establishment

Out of a very real need for an apparatus to protect children from seriously abusive parents has grown this leviathan bureaucracy in almost every locality whose sole purpose, it seems, is to harass families, invade their privacy, and question their parenting abilities. Often these thugs are given carte blanche to interfere with any family at any time of their choosing, while in other jurisdictions, such thugs get an automatic rubber stamp. Once approached, it is very difficult for a family to escape its scrutiny, however fit a family it is.

There is a saying among people, that you can take a man's personal wealth, and you can do anything you want to him, and he will not resist you. But that same man, if you try and hurt his family, will kill you. Unfortunately, since the law doesn't seem to check the child protective services racket, the only thing left will be the barrel of a gun. And you will begin to see it MUCH MUCH more often.

It's become too much

You want to know what I think of compliance to every governmental and bureaucratic regulation and nonregulation? Here is the bottom line. It is becoming too much. It has become much more than a free people should be expected to bear. It's not just this little tyranny, or that one. It's the totality of it all. And it is becoming the case that just about everyone is affected by the tyranny, including most of the tyrants themselves. A sign in most IRS offices reads "Seizure Fever: Catch It!" Most of these tax collector types would turn in the agent next to them for a bonus. Many of them would turn in their own mothers. Hell, a few of them probably would frame a co-worker for something he didn't do, they are so power crazed.

We are about to reach a critical mass where it just doesn't pay to do it all. Where it just doesn't pay to comply. Where it's easier not to comply. Where even those who WANT to comply, because they think they are being good citizens by doing it, will not be allowed to fully comply.

Then it will begin to happen. These people who shoot you and orphan your children will not be patriots. They won't be political activists and extremists for the most part. They won't be someone like me, for instance. No, it will be Joe Sixpack who takes you out.

You say it won't happen.

It happens all the time, even now. The most celebrated case of just this phenomenon was the shooting of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner by Mumia Abu Jamal. Faulkner by all reports was a good cop. And Mumia, by all reports, was basically a thug. However, Faulkner's coworkers, the Philadelphia Police, developed a reputation of acting like thugs, and Mumia had been on the front lines of the receipt of this thuggery. So on one fateful night, that nobody planned, an innocent Faulkner had innocently pulled over two men who had not planned on killing anyone that night.

It will happen like that, just that easily. Over and over and over again.

Or what about the case of Stuart Alexander, the San Leandro sausage factory owner who was so thoroughly harassed by USDA agents over a period of time, that one day, he just snapped, and shot three of them dead.

Yes, it will happen, just like that, over and over and over again.

The excuse of Timothy McVeigh, rightly or wrongly, was that his act was a punishment of the federal government for the murder of 88 people, including some 20 children, by federal agents at Waco.

If what I think is going to happen becomes a reality, the number of Daniel Faulkners, Mumia Abu Jamals, Tim McVeighs, and Stuart Alexanders are going to increase exponentially.

The tragedy is, none of this has to happen. If the powers that be will now choose to no longer "be the bastards," then they won't suffer this fate. If they will but heed the Deuteronomic admonition, where the Creator says, "I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live": if they will but CHOOSE liberty, which brings life, and implement liberty, they will save themselves, and be recorded in the history books as heroes with courage.

Of course, instead of choosing not to be tyrants, probably the tyrants will instead clamor for something like a general gun confiscation, because they can no longer trust the public at large with possession of these weapons.

And when the tyrants do that, that will change everything.

Because then it WILL be us who shoots the bastards.

And we strategize better than Joe Sixpack, our aim is better, and our investigatory ability to find the bastards is better.

And in case you have any doubt . . . when THAT time comes . . . yes. Me, too. And probably someone sitting next to you. Maybe your next door neighbor. Maybe that friendly legislator or congressman from a neighboring state who believes in liberty. That bureaucrat who unbeknownst to you is a secret believer in liberty. That agent who fancies himself a true patriot and wants to restore the republic. Maybe even the governor or the President you just elected, for all you know.

Because we are literally everywhere. And you don't know who all of us are.

What should you who are tyrants do? It's simple. Choose life.
