For years there have been rumors on the Internet (sometimes
accompanied by photographs) about "relocation camps" being prepared here in
America, ostensibly to help deal with large-scale emergencies like Hurricane
Katrina, but actually for the purpose of dealing with dissenters.
A Horror Story from England
by "Musket Mike" of Montana
Here in the States we have our own horror stories about
issues surrounding police abuses of power but every once in a while we hear
a horror story from England that is enough to send shivers down the spine.

Philip A.Luty was arrested at gunpoint by the British "North East Counter
Terrorism Unit" (NECTU). Philip is the well known author of Expedient

Holidays With The Heimatsicherheitsministerium
by Francis A Ney, Jr.
The Department of Homeland Security is trying very hard to
live up to their German antecedents. Too bad they suck at it.
by Jim Davidson
A few days ago, I got involved in a discussion with Jim
Quinn of theburningplatform.com who seemed to want me to read an essay he wrote
on gradual changes in governmental madness. I wrote back to say that I don't
think gradualism has a chance. In fact, I don't think it deserves a chance at
this point. It has, after all, been the political gradualism of groups like
the Libertarian party that have failed decade after decade.
"To Throw Off Such Government"
by Russell D. Longcore
"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations,
pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under
absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off
such government, and to provide new guards for their future security."
-- Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence, 1776. Jefferson wrote
that the People had a duty to "throw off" a despotic government.
Five Minutes after the Rapture

Ralph: Dum de dum dum, dum de dum dum. Sam: Hey Ralph,
look at all this stuff lying all over the sidewalk.
by Paul Bonneau
One can always tell a Believer in the Government Religion: the
first thing he does is advocate a government "solution" to a problem. It's even
more evident when that problem is caused by government itself. Only a True
Believer could believe the cause can be the cure.
