You forgot Ruby Ridge and Waco. To citizens, gov't exists for only one reason to protect life, liberty and property. To gov't however, they exist
for control. They crave it like a vampire craves blood, they want complete and utter control of our lives. Many will say that is nonsense, that
gov't is there for our own good. If someone is into making big time profits, where do they turn-to business. If someone is into power and
controlling people, where do they turn-only one place gov't.
Maybe we shouldn't be so harsh on our legal gov't, but should merely place the blame upon the secret gov't that manipulate them. Well is it the
bankers who vote and decide on NAFTA, GATT, CAFTA, The Patriot Act, Assult Weapons ban, Real ID act, eminent domain issues? No, it is not the shadow
gov't, it is our legally elected officials who are selling us out, and all the blame should be placed upon them.
I firmly believe guns are our only salvation. What prevents us from killing someone we don't like? The threat of jail of course. Well do we
volunteer to inprison ourselves after the act of murder? No way, one would be brought to justice through a force of arms led by local gov't entities
called police. So we citizens are kept in line to obey the law through fear. Without that threat of fear who knows what could result. Now the
gov't also has laws to follow, called the constitution. I ask who enforces fear to the gov't that makes them think "we better do our jobs and
follow the law". The 2nd amendment is the guarantee behind all freedoms we enjoy.
I hope I did not get too off topic.
