In the two score and seven years following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the U.S. federal government rapidly transmogrified into a national wrecking crew, bankrupting and otherwise devouring the Republic and its founding principles of personal liberty and protection from government intrusiveness.

If Uncle Sam were ever a lean, fair-minded, slow-to-anger yeoman, see him now bloated with arrogance and drooling with avarice–a stalking
warmonger, a defiler of Lady Liberty. Not sated as usurper of the
Several States and control agent of the planet, the federal Behemoth
in a step to finality grows madly paranoid of even law-abiding
American citizens.

Alas, Uncle Sam has grown fangs; ever-shrinking vestiges of American liberty, privacy, and wealth excite his blood lust. For America to rescue its core principles and free the populace from tightening tyranny, the Sovereign States must peacefully reassert supremacy over the out-of-control entity they initially created by Compact in 1787. Let this be the transforming if not revolutionary message bellowed across the land.
