The following information came to me from several sources. These people had the temerity to stand before unconstitutional, illegal, immoral taking of property by government for the benefit of the ruling elite. We need people like them. We need to encourage and support those who stand against tyranny.
For reference, I also repost a few relevant parts of the Constitution under which the feds are supposed to be limited in their scope. -Ted The Bill of Rights
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government […]
“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.”
— H. L. Mencken
(1880-1956) American Journalist, Editor, Essayist, Linguist, Lexicographer, and Critic
to the Government Abuse Americans Will Accept?
Any student of history learns that people will put up with horrific government abuse before they do anything about it. And so I’ve been watching for years, waiting to see how much abuse the Western world, and Americans in particular, will accept from government before they admit that they’re being abused.
In dark moments, I’ve even wondered whether this time was different, whether the natural human reaction against pain had somehow been eliminated. People in the past have rebelled against far less.
But I’ve also come to understand we have, in our times, a unique driver of compliance. By that, I refer to the most sacred of our […]
A new report examining the devastating toll of incarcerated parents on children, families and their community has found that over five million children have a parent in jail, leading to poor education outcomes, economic strife and psychological problems.
“The saying is all too familiar: Do the crime, do the time. But in America’s age of mass incarceration, millions of children are suffering the consequences of their parents’ sentences and our nation’s tough-on-crime practices,” stated the report, A Shared Sentence released on Monday by The Annie E. Casey Foundation.
Over a period of four decades, the report found that the number of children with a father in prison or jail at some point in their childhood […]
How the War on Drugs Has Caused More Harm Than Good
Prescriptions for opioids have risen by 300 percent over the past 10 years — a trend that has fueled, if not created a whole new heroin epidemic.1 Americans use the most opioids of any nation — twice the amount used by Canadians, who come in second place in terms of prescriptions.
So many Americans are on opioids, there’s now a huge market for drugs to treat opioid-induced constipation (OIC). A major TV spot for OIC even ran during the televising of […]
When a SWAT team does a middle-of-the-night raid, everyone is tossed around naked, or in their bedclothes. Resistance is normally fatal (that’s what these guys practice for), and most importantly, there is nobody to call for help.
Turns out these are quite common, but not the only way government confiscates your stuff.
Thanks to the cover provided by “THE WAR ON DRUGS”, every police agency, and even numerous non-police agencies, can take your stuff IF THEY FEEL LIKE IT. Roadside, bedside, at your place of business, or wherever they feel like attacking, they can come scoop up your stuff and keep it… no provocation necessary.
This is politely called “Asset Forfeiture”.
It applies to anyone government agencies feel […]

Does The United States Still Exist? An address delivered to the Libertarian Party of Florida on March 23, 2016 in Destin, Florida
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
To answer the question that is the title, we have to know of what the US consists. Is it an ethnic group, a collection of buildings and resources, a land mass with boundaries, or is it the Constitution. Clearly what differentiates the US from other countries is the US Constitution. The Constitution defines us as a people. Without the Constitution we would be a different country. Therefore, to lose the Constitution is to lose the country.
Does the Constitution still exist? Let us examine the document […]
Gun control is hitting your target.
There is no simpler, more concise way to say it.
Those who pass laws, or those who refuse to repeal laws restricting possession and use of self-defense weapons are either not thinking clearly or have evil intent.
Laws against killing people do not stop knife attacks, bomb attacks, acid attacks, brutality against women, baseball bat attacks, gang violence against innocents, or any other violent crimes. Restraining orders are flimsy pieces of paper. Violent criminals are stopped by superior force. Period.
Armed citizens prevent violence thousands of times every year. Most of the times without firing a shot.
In a state as liberal towards personal freedoms and individual liberty as Montana, one as rich in […]
