As we observe the ignoble acts of the Senate this past weekend and our frustrations grow as we see an ever expanding central government devour more liberty and property, it’s time to state the obvious…we must force Washington DC to decentralize. The 9th and 10th Amendments will be our tool. Implicit in the Declaration and…Details
Why is it that federal government terrorism always gets brushed aside in the media? Horrifically, the GAO found that the DOD and other agencies were involved with terrorism against Americans from 1940-1970s. I do not recall the media ever speaking of this back in the 90s.
The report was done in 1994, so I am quite sure a lot more tyranny has taken place since then. The excuse used by these murders is ‘National Security’.
The number of people impacted by these actions will never be known.Details

Listening to the Glenn Beck show last week, I was struck by an exchange between Glenn and one of his co-hosts. They were discussing the Monica Lewinsky debacle of the late nineties and paraphrased the national dialog at the time as something like this:
Republicans: President Clinton had an affair in the Oval Office.
Democrats: No, he didn’t.
Republicans: Yes, he did.
Democrats: No, he didn’t.
Republicans: Yes, he did. He just admitted it on national television.
Democrats: It doesn’t matter.

A tyranny begins when power is unchecked.
The federal government is becoming more tyrannical everyday that the people and the states don’t defend their rights. The shift has occurred because the check on federal power, largely responsible by state governments; has been trampled, bribed, threatened, or manipulated by those in power.
One should never forget it is the people that created the states, and the states created the federal government. ‘Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.’
The federal government is not the all powerful monopoly entity it thinks it is. Sure, the statists and elitists would like you to believe it is. All they care about is more power and wealth for themselves, by taking more control over you.Details
