Reader comments about this quote:
Now that the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land has by statute declared Christians, ex-military, gun owners, Constitution readers, supporters of a Representative Republic, and lovers of freedom a public danger (throwing out all inalienable rights), the camps will soon start seeing use and war rage before Constitutional principles that here existed once upon a time be again re-established.

    Exactly right Mike. Now that America has been declared a "Battlefield in the War on Terror" all of the stated rights of the 5th Amendment are right out the window. Interestingly enough we've recently seen the greatest purchase of firearms and ammunition in US history by We The People. Looks like people are preparing to defend themselves from USA Inc.

    J Carlton, my heart is very heavy and, I'm afraid you are right in your - 'why' - so many guns are being purchased. I've been traveling and seen the police state expand with intrusive roving units, despotic attitudes of them vs. us, ever increasing number of para-military policing agencies / individuals, etc., etc., etc. The Representative Republic, with its limiting Constitution and Amendments is no more.
