Comment: The moment an individual

The moment an individual

The moment an individual defends himself and is forced to shoot injure a government agent/ troop they will be immediately declared a terrorist. That's how it works - the NDAA of 2012 kicks in and you have no rights. Additionally you are prosecuted in the court of public opinion via the establishment press.

I did three tours in Iraq during my ten years in the Marine Corps. Insurgent forces only fight when it benefits them. Shoot and move, shoot and move. What this does is force the heavy forces to over react via frustration. Unfortunately this causes the occupying forces to "accidentally" kill/injure innocent people. Overseas the American public didn't really care because the collateral damage was not American. But once government forces start smashing a fly with a sledge hammer, thus hurting innocent Americans, even the lemming serfs will react negatively towards government actions. Take the Ruby Ridge incident and compare it to the actions of McVeigh. McVeigh was a murder regardless of the reasons for his actions. He targets innocent people such as the children. Morally that's is wrong and he deserved what he got. But compare that to Ruby Ridge. The government agents violated the rights of the land owner by not having a warrant, not identifying themselves as federal officers. When the land owner and his family defended themselves legally, the federal agents murdered Vickie and her infant son. People were outraged and even the courts ruled against the federal government. Such actions delegitimizes the government.

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."
