    Compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity (life, insurance, income, property, etc. taxes) and usurpation of inalienable rights are all heinous applications of tyranny. It is dangerous to be a freeman, acting out the laws of nature and natures God and liberty in the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land. The authorities of said statist theocracy call day - night, light - dark, good - evil, sweet - bitter, tyranny - freedom, despotism - liberty and enforce their established will through threat, duress, prison and the gun.

    What a great time to be alive ! Then you know it ! All to Declare and nothing to hide, nothing to fear but fear itself.

    I've always wondered who gave away my inalienable rights, God given rights, or my individual rights? Why do I have to pay Warren Buffet $1,000 for insurance for each vehicle I own, when I can only drive one at a time??how about a break after 50 years? I DON'T REMEMBER GIVING ANYONE THAT RIGHT?

    'Danger' can never be eliminated -- a free man will always have to be on the lookout for predators, a slave has already been caught. Runaway slaves face more danger than a free man. But what price is freedom to the slave?
