Thermopylae, the Alamo, and Election Season
Submitted by: Sean Glazier

"I can already hear the question: What do these three things have in common?" ...

"In 480 BC, Leonidas of Sparta, with 300 Spartans, and a few hundred Thebans and volunteers from other city states, held the pass at Thermopylae against overwhelming odds. Xerxes of Persia (modern day Iran) had an army consisting of well over 100,000 men, possibly as many as 600,000. Leonidas knew that there was absolutely no chance for an ultimate victory at Thermopylae, but he held the pass anyway. Why? He was buying time for the rest of the Greek city-states to arm, to organize, to prepare to resist the oncoming forces of oppression." ...

"Why did the men of the Alamo stay to die in the little mission fort, especially since they had been specifically ordered to destroy the fort and leave the area? For the same reason Leonidas of Sparta and the immortal 300 died, to buy time for the forces of freedom." ...

"But what does all this have to do with this election season?"

"Simple, really. Just like these brave men, we are faced with grave threats to our freedom, to our very way of life. Just like these brave men, we are vastly outnumbered by the forces of oppression, of ignorance, and of apathy."

"Contrary to your characterization of them as 'fast-fire attack weapons designed for waging war, not hunting' (editorial, April 20), the firearms covered by the 1994 Congressional legislation banning assault-style firearms are technically no different from the semiautomatic or self-loading firearms used for 100 years by millions of Americans for hunting, sport shooting, collecting and personal protection."
 

Some Gun Owners See Bush as Lesser of Evils
Submitted by: Sean Glazier

" 'Bush's problem is that he's been bumbling the issue. He does stand to lose the enthusiasm that he needs from the Second Amendment base, and perhaps even lose the Reagan Democrats,' said Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, which has 300,000 members."

"Pratt said Bush could lose significant votes from gun owners who either turn to Kerry or decide not to vote on Election Day."

"But Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the 650,000-member Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, said that gun owners would ultimately support Bush when they learn that Kerry, despite his love for hunting, supports banning some guns."

-------
This is exactly why our rights are being destroyed. Because gun owners, in the long run, are too afraid to vote their conscience, and will vote for the lesser of the two evils, and refuse to give the politicians any incentive to change.

". . . The newspapers were soon full of analyses of why such things happen -- mankind's housing settlements are expanding into traditional mountain lion terrain."

"But the other problem is that it's now politically incorrect to hunt the big cats in California. In fact, Californians passed Proposition 117 in 1990, banning the 'sport hunting' of cougars."

"California game wardens now visit elementary schools, advising children to stand still, wave their arms and shout when they encounter one of these deadly predators."

"It's good advice as far as it goes -- the animal is far more likely to take a small human for prey if it tries to run away. But shouldn't the kids yell something else, first? Something like, 'Daddy, shoot the cat'?"
 

Now a fair, balanced liberal manifesto

"Two weeks ago in this space, my friend and colleague James Howard Gibbons, a proud liberal, cobbled together something he called a conservative manifesto. He said he was doing so in the interest of fairness and balance, hoping it would be a useful summary of the agenda on the right. As a conservative, I have made a similar effort to provide a summary of the agenda on the left:"

"In peace, raise taxes. In war, raise taxes. The basic purpose of government is to redistribute wealth and provide for the welfare of the people." ...

"The Internal Revenue Service must be given more authority and personnel to root out the tax cheats and make sure all the loopholes are closed." ...

"Love of money is not the root of all evil. Republicans, predominantly white males of European extraction, are." ...

"The U.S. Constitution is a living document, meant to be bent and shaped to address whatever social goals a majority of the Supreme Court deems desirable." ...

"Fortunately for liberals, Americans are more and more inclined to believe the government owes them a living and should take care of their every need. That's what they are taught in public school, and that's what most politicians tell them. Democrats have become socialists and Republicans have become Democrats."
 

Dodging the draft

"In front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Vietnam veteran Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., argued for the reinstitution of the draft, asking, 'Why shouldn't we ask all of our citizens to bear some responsibility and pay some price?' "

"The answer to Sen. Hagel's question is simple: the American public never asked for this military endeavor. We never had a say in how, when or why the United States should invade Iraq -- we were simply told. And no matter where you stand on the issue of the U.S.' involvement in Iraq, the fact that the American public didn't get a say remains true. So why should the government begin to force its citizens to pay for its decisions?"

Patriot Act Enhancement Provides Death Penalty For Any Federal Crime Punishable By Over One Year In Jail

Pending Legislation to "Enhance" the Patriot Act


"President Bush is setting the stage for a fight that will ensue next year, as several controversial provisions of the Patriot Act that impinge most on American's civil liberties are set to expire. He wants to convince the public that spying on citizens is the way to stop terrorism. If Congress does what it did in 2001, it will once again sell our liberties down the river--this time for good."

"In addition, new legislation is pending to create more crimes of "terror," many of them carrying the death penalty."

"Following on the heels of President Bush's road trip to promote the controversial Patriot Act at events in Pennsylvania and New York, on April 21, 2004 a key House subcommittee considered a proposal to expand the Patriot Act's controversial definition of 'terrorism' to provide a death penalty for any federal crime punishable by more than one year in prison if the crime was intended to influence government policy and results in death."

"Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, voted for the Patriot Act in 2001 and still supports major parts of it. But Kerry now charges that the Bush administration has misused aspect of the law. He has promised to eliminate 'sneak and peek' searches and 'fishing expeditions into people's library and business records.' "

"Major parts of the Patriot Act don't expire until the end of next year, but Bush wants Congress to make them permanent right away. That's unlikely because Rep. James Sensenbrenner, the Wisconsin Republican who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, has stated categorically that his panel won't take up the issue until next spring."

"Whatever the outcome of the Nov. 2 election, most lawmakers expect Congress to hold hearings on the Patriot Act before deciding whether to renew, expand or curtail it. Nobody, at this point, expects it will be repealed."

"The law mandates that all states collect SSNs from driver’s license applicants for use in child-support enforcement. Michigan’s Family Independence Agency estimates $200 million in federal funds are at risk if the state does not comply with the requirement."

"It will not be necessary to present an actual Social Security card when applying for a driver’s license. The state will verify all Social Security numbers. A person who has never been issued a SSN must certify to that fact on a form provided by the branch office. Individuals who make a false statement regarding their SSN are subject to a fine of up to $5,000 and imprisonment for up to five years."

The Constitution be damned. The STATE will lose 200 million if it doesn't comply. What BS!

"As happens every year at the state Capitol, the pro-gun and anti-gun politicians have stepped out into the blazing sun at high noon, squared off and blasted away. As often happens, neither group was using the live ammunition of facts. Just emotion, exaggeration and mistrust."

"For example, the state House passed a bill to allow patrons to carry guns into restaurants and bars, although owners can keep weapons out simply by posting signs saying guns aren't permitted."

" 'We looked into this and found that those states that have laws like this have had no rise in incidents of violence or in things like insurance rates,' said Rep. Randy Graf, the Republican from Green Valley who sponsored the legislation."

"And he's right. Opponents of the proposal don't have facts on their side, only emotion. They're firing blanks." ...

"At Arizona gun shows, only licensed federal dealers are required to run background checks on buyers. Critics, including Sen. John McCain, say that criminals and terrorists have purchased weapons at the shows. They want the loophole closed."

-------

"The Tennessee Highway Patrol has some explaining to do. THP should explain why the decision has been made to buy 1,000 assault rifles at a cost of a little over $1,000 a piece. What could possibly justify arming troopers with such firepower?"

"This isn't a matter of spending taxpayer money for the AR-15-style assault weapons. Funding for the purchase will come from money confiscated from criminals' ill-gotten gains. The question which needs to be answered here is, why do troopers need such firepower?"

"Tennessee's troopers are primarily responsible for enforcing laws and investigating accidents on state highways. Occasionally, they are involved in dangerous situations when they are called on to back up other agencies."

"Troopers already are heavily armed. Troopers are issued a .357 Magnum revolver, as well as a backup handgun they keep in their cars. They also carry a Remington 870 12-gauge shotgun. Why do they now need assault rifles?"

-------
The bigger question is: why should the THP have more power than the civilians whom they are supposed to protect and defend?
