59 Socialists In Congress

"Freedom loving Americans would be well advised to keep a close eye on socialist Congressmen. While they may talk like the rest of us, especially when sojourning in their respective districts, they operate from a different paradigm. If they decide to support a war against Iraq, for example, or any other intervention overseas, their motives would more likely be based on an agenda that seeks to entangle the US in a new world order than in protecting the interests of sovereign America."

"Whether we're discussing the IRS, the ATF, the FBI, the Education Department, the Welfare Department, the Child Protectors, or any other government agency, the evidence of corruption and heavy-handed atrocities is overwhelming! No one is safe, no one is immune, unless they are directly employed by these agencies or firmly entrenched in the corrupt power structure that supports them. The rest of us are fair game, and it's no longer a question of if we'll run afoul of them, but of when!"

"Regardless of the debate's eventual outcome, Mayor Jennings says he's disinclined to create another task force."

" 'We're task forced out in this city,' the mayor said, noting there already was a terrorism task force and a broad-based Building Safe Communities task force, the latter dedicated in large measure to exploring the same gun violence issues the Calsolaro task force would address."

"Guns are powerful tools, designed to defend their owner through deterring the attacker or even killing him, if need be. You think Mikhail Kalashnikov developed the AK-47 to shoot rabbits? Or that the AR-18 was meant to shoot foxes? Yeah, right. The main purpose of guns is to defend your life. Or mine. Take away the weapons, and you’ll take away the right to self-defense. And when human rights – any human rights – are eroded, bad things happen. Like Waco. Or Ruby Ridge. Or Dunblane." ...
