Reader comments about this quote:
Not shooting the messenger - now the patrons of the occupying statist theocracy embrace standing armies (from their local police to their imperialist edeavors around the globe) As I've mentioned, recently during a business trip through multiple States, I was stopped at check points in multiple states, manned by regular army (all facets of the standing armies are uniting to extinguish any last remnent of freedom). The Constitution is dead and so went the Representative Republic that it limited.
