Most of us know the Jefferson quote, "When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny." Long
have many of us been suspicious of the government. However, in recent years, and at an ever increasing rate, legislation, executive orders and
judicial decisions has lead many, including myself, to be fearful of the government.
I'm sorry to hear you had to go through this ordeal. As a veteran, and vocal advocate for freedom, I live in a state of semi-paranoia. It's an
established fact that veterans and participants in groups like this are now being considered de facto terrorists. I never know what list my name may
be on, or what actions and communications are being traced and recorded. I don't feel hopeful about the future of the nation or my family. I certainly
don't feel free.
I feel we are living in a state of illusion. Where they claim freedom, but it is all to the extent that they let you have it. We are more akin to
sheep moved into a bigger pasture. Free to move around, eat when we want, but there is still a fence and a shepherd watching over us, ready to pick
off who he sees fit to send to slaughter.
I believe that the system is irreparable. My only hope is that when it does all fall apart, decent, moral, freedom loving people can make it through
and start things over.
