make your strike. But what the Heck does this have to do with sleeping in your caves while the enemy builds forts and trenches in your back yard.
Kind of stupid don't you think?

I'm pretty sure I'm the poster you talked about.
I cannot remember ever sleeping in a cave but I've spent time in bunkers during mortar and rocket attacks.
I'm not hiding in a cave. I live in a home that I purchased with money from the job that I do.
I have that job because every day I go there and work. Some of what I do I learned in the real world and some in school. Much of what I do is travel
and work in hazardous places on a hazardous job. I don't really like it but I do it because it pays the bills.
It also pays the taxes.
You say that a low profile strategy is stupid. What should I be doing?
I actually spend a good deal of time fighting for my freedoms.
I've voted in every election I've been able to since I was old enough to vote. I exercise my rights so I don't lose them.
I donate my hard earned money to politicians and campaigns that I believe will help my community, state and country.
I go to meetings with local congressmen to let my opinions be heard.
I volunteer my time when I find things I think are worth doing.
I put forth effort in educating people where I can in being aware of what is going on in politics and economics.
I stand on two feet in the daytime every day living my life and trying to improve life for myself and those around me.
I don't ask for handouts. I don't claim to be special. I pay more in taxes than I have ever gotten back.
I contribute and obey the law. I stand up for my rights and those of my fellow citizens.
I don't hide in any cave, real or metaphorical.
The enemy is made up of those who would take from me what I work for in the name of politics, economics and "Fairness".
There are more who would take from society than those who would give so the end result is a forgone conclusion, but I don't hide from that fact.
What about you?
Have you any ACTUAL advice or activity to contribute? Is your entire song and dance about running everybody down and telling them how stupid they are?
Tell us all why you are so superior.
I haven't seen you in the headlines or heard about you shaking things up on the hill. All I know about you is that you spend a lot of time running
others down and calling them stupid.
Where is your action? What is your contribution to this great fight?
Come on Hero, lead that charge.
