 -- Dennis Kolb, Warrenton      
 -- Ronw13, OR      
An extremely terse starting list of stealthy encroachments on inalienable rights and constitutional provisions would be: compelled compliance, government licenses, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, Social Security, police state confiscations, etc.), alienation of nature's endowed rights, non-recognized perfected allodium ownership, and individual sovereignty being an enemy to the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land.
