"We've witnessed a fire sale of American liberties at bargain basement prices, in return for the false promise of more security... The America being designed right now won't resemble the America we've been defending... The danger isn't that Big Brother may storm the castle gates. The danger is that Americans don't realize that he is already inside the castle walls."

Wayne LaPierre
CEO of National Rifle Association

Well, let's get the obvious out of the way -- consider the source of the quote -- so please, no ad hominems. This is the very principle I try to teach students as they go through their college carriers with blinders on.

    Anything IS possible if you believe! I believe America can change for the better once we eliminate all the Bozos that brought us to this point and put into the Executive Office and into Congress, Americans with the same values and ideals as the Founding Fathers. That's my opinion anyway.

    Americans don't want to be free, with all the risk and personal pain and inconvenience that requires, they want to be bottle fed from cradle to grave.

    When was the last time you said, "NO!" to a government official ordering you to pay or give up something 'in the name of the law'? We are going to have to start acting courageously and in defiance of evil. If we don't, then we are merely accomplices of it. We are responsible for it all -- God helps those who help themselves. As this quote implies, the battle is not 'out there,' it is within, and we must come to terms with our responsibility. Nonviolent non-cooperation with evil is our very best weapon in this epic and global battle. Then hang a few politicians for good measure. ;-)

    When the perps of the Bush crime family are held accountable for not only treason but the 1million Iraqi deaths and 7000+ American deaths, the robbery of the treasury as well as the treasonous dismantling of the Constitution, they will hang like their mascot Saddam... their supporters should walk to the gallows with them. We will be killed and gassed in the millions while Cheney and Rumsfeld smirk until our numbers overwhelm and re-establish Constitutional law.

    I have been warning people about our government take over for over twenty five years now. For the most part everyone was fat, dumb, or lazy. Now many are waking up and seeing the light. It will take some more losses of their freedoms until they realize that it is time for action. When people feel that they have nothing to lose, they are then, and only then ready for action. I like the way Malcom X put it when he said "by any means necessary". I hope that I live to see the awakening. My Marine Corps oath required me to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign or domestic, and once a Marine, always a Marine.

    Jefferson, this mess didn't just start with Bush, it started a long time ago. Woodrow Wilson got the ball rolling and Franklin Roosevelt hurried it along with the New Deal. I suspect that the beginning of the end came with the 16th ammendment, the income tax. at Amazon you can find a book, "The Income Tax, Root of All Evil", check it out.

    you guys are right,thanks,we need action. For thirty years I've been saying that America is one big whore,willing to sell itself to the highest bidder. Why invade a country {like America) when you can just buy it?? 300 years my family has been on these shores fighting in the revolutionary wars thru ww2 to preserve our Constitution (which according to bush and his lover derschowitz is just a piece of paper) we aren't going down so easy....I bet if that Constitution were wadded up and shoved down derschowitz's throat and held there until breathing stopped it would regain some importance to that sellout scumbag as well!

    He is talking about BIG BROTHER. Big brother is clearly now and has always been COMMUNIST. And further more Wayne LaPierre knows that.

    We are about to put the traitorous Broker of our State Department into the White House to complete the destruction that the Manchurian Kenyan Indonesian Hawaiian Candidate began. She's a lot scarier than Prevaricant Obama.. Just ask Vince Foster.

    I Have changed my mind. I believe that the mess we are in started long before1913. This mess probably started with that good old republican, "Honest Abe". Read "The Real Lincoln" and "Lincoln Unmasked" available on Amazon.
