"So what is the native born American to do? He sees himself more and more being victimized by a federal government that doesn't listen to him and a Supreme Court that decides he's got to subsidize all of the government's cockamamie schemes that are sucking him dry. Just about every major population center in the United States has at least one municipality that is on the verge of financial collapse."

Their ridiculous policies regarding firearms, including their affiliation with Rosie O'Donnell, their caving in to anti-freedom zealots and quitting the sales of ammunition and their absurd pulling of firearms off the shelves after 9-11 have finally caught up with them.

" 'I don’t know anybody at the Justice Department who wants to see the Constitution ... denigrated,' [Michael Chertoff, second in charge of the criminal division of the U.S. Justice Department] said, saying the government’s perceived aggressive behavior stems from a desire to prevent future terrorist attacks."

-------
Compare his statement with this excerpt from a memo written to certain senators by Assistant Attorney General Daniel J. Bryant expressing his goals for the "Patriot" Act:

"The courts have observed that even the use of deadly force is reasonable under the Fourth Amendment if used in self-defense or to protect others... Here, for Fourth Amendment purposes, the right to self-defense is not that of an individual, but that of the nation and its citizens... If the government's heightened interest in self-defense justifies the use of deadly force, then it certainly would also justify warrantless searches.

Who doesn't want the Constitution "denigrated"?

You just don't have the opportunity to always have a gun in a knife fight, or vice-versa. So you have to be prepared for any circumstance."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition, that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story, who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. If men are to wait for liberty till they become wise and good in slavery, they may indeed wait forever. — LORD THOMAS MACAULAY
