    Yep, that's me, buying Strike Any Where matches (rather than the stupid SOBs) and hoarding Edison incandescent bulbs. Oh, and thousands of rounds of lead ammunition.

    0_o YOU'RE ONE OF THEM! ONE OF THE 18(!!!!!) people they warn us about.

    But seriously now, anyone else get the feeling that they're trying to turn a lot of us into terrorists? I am anti government, so I am a terrorist now? I have harmed no one, I just wish that no one tries to control me.

    Its not a movement based on reality or limited government or the constitution; its crackpot excuses for committing fraud and extortion, usually against regular citizens.
    Don't believe any facts that I say! This is the internet and it is filled with lies and untruth. I invite you to look up for yourself the basic facts that my arguments might be based upon. This way we can have a discussion where logic and hints on where to find information are what is brought to the forum and people look up and verify facts for themselves.

    'Dudes' who don't pay their 'fair share' and still use the roads....round them up and pack-em off to Gitmo. Though, it is somewhat ironic that they do pay 'some share' cuz they ain't making their own gas, or not getting away with paying a sales tax most of the time.....still, round them up and pack-em off to Gitmo.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    Oh, so the United States isn't bankrupt? Well shucks, I feel all better now. Thanks, Mr. Government man!

    It's not just the "left" either...there is so called self proclaimed conservative in Washington thread who keeps calling me extreme, and alleging I am a crook, and an anarchist for simply believing in most of the same principles of the founding of this country.

    What are we to do? I can't help but want individual liberty and freedom. It is not in my nature to be a sheep. I don't want to join a militia either I just want to live my life and be left alone.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Very true... I have my suspicion that the originators of the myths which spawn such behavior may be some government financed think tank/s. ...just a suspicion.

    Usually, a mix of "out of context" law is mixed with emotional arguments and then sold as the "truth" of why we're not the country we think we are. I have seen some very well meaning people buy into this crap at great peril to their liberty and property.

    I attribute the alarming spread of this kinda stuff to a combination of true patriotism mixed with a feeling of helplessness... add a healthy dose of ignorance of law and history and voila.

    Here's a recent thread showing an example of how this crap is making its way around the web:
