"It has been written by many that there are alternatives to an armed confrontation with the US Government - and don't forget State and political subdivisions as their "leadership" is just as corrupt. After all, they, too, are elected officials who must obey the Constitution but do not. And, the tyranny advances."

"One alternative is that we can get control of courts and establish uncorrupted courts."

The Progressive Donor Network held its inaugural strategy meeting in Washington two weeks ago. Its president and co-founder is political consultant Michael Lux, who was a top fund-raising official for the 1996 Clinton-Gore campaign and served as an aide in the Clinton White House."

These two articles, while not directly firearm related, do indicate a danger to ALL of OUR FREEDOMS. After reading this I find it hard to feel we will regain our lost Freedoms without an armed conflict.

This is a MUST read!

CA: Perata's five cent tax is more than you think (SCA12)

The tax is also on components e.g. each bullet, primer and load of powder, brass etc. Prepare to pay $50.00 or more per box of bullets, $300 - $400 for a case of primers and who knows how they'll figure out the powder. If you reload, count on paying at least $11.00 to $12.00 per 50 rounds for the components and that doesn't include the brass!

"A state senator's proposal to tax bullets to offset the costs of patching up gunshot victims is more symbolic than substantive. There's no way that a 5-cent bullet tax pitched by Sen. Don Perata, D-Oakland, could raise enough money to recoup emergency room and trauma center care costs. At Oakland's Highland Hospital alone, the cost of treatment for the average gunshot victim was $31,000; there were 245 of them last year, according to hospital staff."

"Prosecutor Tom Bondurant... said federal law prohibits anyone convicted of a crime punishable by a sentence exceeding one year from buying or possessing firearms."

--Reader note: Notice: punishABLE, not punishED. Never see the inside of a jail and still lose your rights. The defendant sure sounds scary, but so does any gun owner, to some people. There are lots of nonviolent "crimes" that COULD BE punished by a year or more. A dangerous stretch of the law.

"The Transportation Security Administration official responsible for ensuring the government's 30,000 new airport-checkpoint screeners are all U.S. citizens, with no serious criminal records, had a reputation for "rubber-stamping" applicants for even the most sensitive positions at his last government job, WorldNetDaily has learned."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To have no proud monarch driving over me with his gilt coaches; nor his host of excise-men and tax-gatherers insulting and robbing me; but to be my own master, my own prince and sovereign, gloriously preserving my national dignity, and pursuing my true happiness; planting my vineyards, and eating their luscious fruits; and sowing my fields, and reaping the golden grain: and seeing millions of brothers all around me, equally free and happy as myself. This, sir, is what I long for. -- General Francis Marion, American War of Independence, Georgetown, SC [Source: 'Marion, The Life of Gen. Francis Marion' by M. L. Weems, Ch.18]
