Letter from Kent McManigal

Re: "What Will Cause the Next Civil War?", by Ron Beatty http://www.webleyweb.com/tle/tle251-20031214-03.html

You forgot one recent item:

Is it a free country when government officials, who think they can't collect enough revenue from your house, abuse emiment domain powers to steal your house and hand over the property to a private developer to turn into a Wal-Mart Supercenter?

Frank Ney

[Ron replies:]

Sir or Ma'am,

No, I didn't forget. Unfortunately, if I sat down and listed every government abuse every day, even just those which are listed in the newspapers and on line, by the time I got done, it would be the next day, and I would have to start all over again. What I listed in that article were those things which immediately struck ME, individually, as especially stupid or ominous. Government, by it's nature, is evil, since all politicians, at least under our system, are either liars or thieves, even the best of them. At this point, the ONLY politician in Washington that I would even be slightly inclined to trust is Ron Paul of Texas, since he seems to be the only one willing to stand up for the Second Amendment and for American sovereignty.

May the Light shine on you and in you,

Ron Beatty

Dear Mr. Ed,

I was reading an article by Ted Lang on the Armed Females of America website. In it, the author mentioned that Bill(ious) Clinton had stated that the Second Amendment gives Americans "the right to hunt". Thanks for the good news, Bill! Let's all use our Second Amentment hunting rights to go hunting big game... such as beaurocrats, politicians, self-aggrandizing cops, and other such vermin! Hypothetically, of course?
