“Long time observer of the Mexican drug war Bill Conroy comments that the deal cut with HSBC by the Department of Justice, ”should illuminate for all the great pretense of the drug war — no matter how hard US prosecutors, via the mainstream media, attempt to convince us otherwise. …And it should lead us to conclude, if we are honest with ourselves, that the so-called drug war is little more than one immense “drug deal.”

“Liberty is not a means to a higher political end. It is itself the highest political end.” Lord Acton 1834-1902
“At all times sincere friends of freedom have been rare” Lord Acton 1834-1902
“Now, if congress and the courts had attempted to obey this amendment, as they were constitutionally bound to do, they would soon have found that they had really no lawmaking power whatever left to them; because they would have found that they could make no law at all, of their own invention that would not violate men’s natural rights.” Lysander Spooner (1808-1887) on the 9th Amendment to the US Constitution
150 years ago, British historian Thomas Macaulay made this dire prediction for America, “Your civilization will be destroyed in the 20th century, as Rome was in the 5th century. But the huns and vandals which will destroy you will come from within, from your own institutions.”

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” C. S. Lewis

Our founding fathers did not enact the second amendment for hunters, although it protects their right to own guns as well. They enacted the 2nd Amendment to protect the rights of the citizens to own weapons to protect themselves from government tyranny.
The current attempt to argue that it was for hunting is preposterous! At the time the founding fathers enacted the Constitution of the United States and the 2nd Amendment as part of the Bill of Rights guns for hunting were part of everyday life. They would have had no reason to believe that one would need to have their possession of hunting weapons protected. However, they did have experience with tyranny and the need for the citizen to have protection from an over reaching government.
This weekend in Kentucky if you are within driving distance, is a rally where gun-toting Americans can go and exercise that right at the Capitol of the State where it is still legal to open carry your weapons. I don’t live close enough but if I did I would be there. Click here for more information
Want to see the end result of heeding the siren song of gun control whose end aim everywhere it has been implemented is the eventual banning of the ownership of guns by citizens? Get the video Innocents Betrayed and see for yourself the gruesome results of a disarmed citizenry both from their governments and the criminal element of society.

Government Gone Wild! What you don’t know CAN hurt you!
As I write this the FTC is moving to take control of the internet under the guise of net neutrality. I ask – who gets to determine what is neutrality?
Government Gone Wild!!!! There really is no other way to describe what is happening in this great nation. Looking at just the few organizations that I have linked to from my For Patriot’s page you can see how our leaders are constantly chipping away at our freedoms in too many ways all at once making it impossible for the working person to have the time to feed their family and get involved in the fight to push back. It is impossible for any individual to keep track of everything the government is doing on a daily almost hourly basis to intrude, restrict and control our lives. As I find organizations that are trying to push back against this tyranny I try to put them up on this site at least the national ones. I am personally involved in a state organization called the Ohio Project. We collected enough signatures to place a health care freedom act on the Ohio Ballot. Issue 3 is an amendment to the Ohio Constitution that keeps Ohioans from being forced to purchase health care. This, if passed would give the citizens of Ohio the right to opt out of Obama Care. UPDATE- the Health Care Freedom Ammendment was passed in OHIO!!!!
We are not wealthy people so I try I do what I can for the National Organizations. I support them by helping to get the word out for them on this site and other social media. These are some of the organization that I have found that are working to push back against the relentless onslaught of our Government. There is the Fully Informed Jury Association, The Mises Institute, The Tenth Amendment Center, Oath Keepers, GOOOH (get out of our house), Downsize DC and I am sure a host of others that came into existence to push back against the Government Gone Wild Crisis.
What can one person do? I wish I had the answer and some days I just want to throw up my hands and just disconnect from it all. I will keep doing what little I can and hope you will do something for me. If you know of any organization that is fighting the good fight to push back against our government gone wild post a comment to let me know where to find them and I will link to them on this site and promote them with my social media.
