OK, I just read the story of the Domestic Terrorists pamphlet, and it brings up the age old question. What event would it take for the people that talk about freedom, survival, constitutionality, state militias, etc to say that's enough, no more? When this country was founded it was through extreme bravery against a tyrant that was dictating and taxing their lifestyles, imprisoning our people without justification. I am glad it is so much different today..... Here are some of my concerns: >Electronic monitoring, used to foil terrorists? but also used against our own people. Everything that we allow them to use "for our own safety" can and will be used against us. >When Waco happened, we sent in our troops against our own people and no one really rallied. I realize that there was the child endangerment charges that needed to be addressed, and I completely agree that it should have been investigated, but not by the ATF and with tanks. >I am not a bigoted person by nature, and have many friends of different races and faiths, but as to profiling, if it walks like a duck, looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, I am thinking it could be a duck. If they proved that middle aged white guys with gray beards were responsible for terrorist attacks, then I would expect to be glove searched until I decided to shave or be thankful that I am being kept safe from other middle aged white guys with a gray beard. >Why are the citizens of this country able to be arrested and charged, forced to go to court, spend money for a lawyer to defend themselves, be found innocent, and then not be able to sue the authority that arrested them for damages? I seem to think it would stop a lot of the BS that LEO are pulling. You know, the media is complaining about the guerilla tactics the Iraqi are using in Baghdad, but if you were fighting for your homeland, would you not do the same? I seem to remember reading a certain army that wore red uniforms with big white X's on them complaing that their enemy did not fight in the normal rules of engagement, but rather fought like savages, running and hiding, shooting officers at every opportunity, creating confusion in the ranks. Is that not what would need to be done to win a confrontation against a superior armed foe? I could go on, but I think you understand my feelings. But, here is my question, what will it take to make the disgruntled populace draw the line in the sand? I understand the hesitation to post anything specific, and I am not asking for that, just general warning signs. Even in writing this, I am hesitant to send it out on such a public domain, so if you do not hear from me in 72 hours, the alphabet men must have found me.
