This article is well written,

This article is well written, accurate and should headline every news outlet. This SHOULD be the focus of our perverse congress and power-drunken judicial branch of government. People please wake up and act or it will be too late. The totalitarian genie is out of the bottle and most sheep (people) couldn't care less.

Truth: This should be front page IMO

If I could write well, I would have compsoed this because I completely agree with it, and to me.. this article does a great job in explaining why the Liberty Movement (rEVOLution) began, as many see the constitution as a means to end the police state/ war on drugs: gateway to the prison state.

This is a list of our core issues. What we do to resolve thenm is another story, and while many here have no hipe, or trust in anyone who joined the GOP except Ron Paul (go figure).. I don't see any way to resolve the police state but through the GOP.

Amen Brother Granger...! Roger this...

In troubled times

Of a bygone era there was such a thing as vigalante justice, crude but effective. I don't advocate any such action in this day and age, but essentially the principle holds true.
Gang mentality, in any form will never dissipate, only feed and self perpetuate.
These acts need to be called out and condemned, 'at an individual level', and those perpertrators need to be held to ridicule and condemnation, legal action and contempt, as does those who allow them to continue.

Long, but worth the read. Accurate and undeniable.

Thanks for sharing.

Until average folk step up to stop police from doing this....

they will not stop...

WE MUST through some means, some way, force them to stop! Otherwise, it's no different than allowing a criminal to roam free in your home and having the criminal decide when YOU had enough!!

Love Liberty, be Vigilant

"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2 Corinthians 3:17)

Faith in God will prevail all things!
