>Thank you very much Mr. Kemp.  I thought I was alone.

Nope.  You're not alone, you are just in the rarified air of the 
front.  What you see before you are your enemies, the masses of 
the oppressor facing you.  And you see the backs of the rare few 
who are leading.  Look to your sides, and you will see allies in 
growing numbers.  Look behind, and you will see the fearful and 
"civilized," hiding from reality.  Yet the wise among them know 
that the time is near when they must either support you, join you 
in the fight -- the gamble of death or freedom -- or kneel and 
obey and beg mercy from those who would dominate them.

It's a war, isn't it? Don't they say so at every opportunity?  
And haven't they begun to wage war on the civilians?  They caused 
the war by creating a lucrative market in the natural products of 
the Lord's earth.  The oriental lords of opium and the South 
American cocaine cowboys, who are criminal profiteers, were 
half-heartedly targeted.  The warlords who created the war first 
escalated to target the peaceful men and women of the earth, those 
who till the land with their own sweat and labor and ingenuity to 
bring forth the Lord's good herb.  Now they have brought the war 
to the man in his home who has a few grams of vegetable leaf and 
flower, assaulting him and his family and bringing terror and ruin 
to neighborhoods and families.  This is, of course, when they 
actually attack the house which they intended.  And even that is 
not accidental, for it is a terroristic demonstration of power, a
reminder to the cowering sheep that their master is in charge, and 
that the sheep must remain silent and still.

The excuse for the massive military raid on the Seventh-Day 
Adventist Branch Davidians, a community which had lived in peace 
with their neighbors for decades, was the flimsiest fiction of 
a methamphetamine lab.  They were good Christian folks, so when 
they broke the assault and the ememy, shocked and disoriented and 
out of ammo begged to medevac and leave, they willingly agreed. 
This was their only mistake.  They didn't realize that it was a war
on the gentle and the loving, the unresisting. 

    "There are cases which cannot be overdone by language, 
     and this is one.  There are persons too who see not 
     the full extent of the evil that threatens them; they 
     solace themselves with hopes that the enemy, if they 
     succeed, wil be merciful.  It is the madness of folly 
     to expect mercy from those who have refused to do 
     justice; and even mercy, where conquest is the object, 
     is only a trick of war.  The cunning of the fox is as 
     murderous as the violence of the wolf, and we ought to 
     guard equally against both." 
     Thomas Paine, The American Crisis No. 1, December
     19, 1776 -- the Valley Forge Winter.

How much worse off would the Davidians have been, had they 
stacked a hundred naked ATF corpses on the front lawn of their 
property, and told Unca Sham to come collect his servants' bodies
-- and then decimated those who came for the corpses?  After all, 
they were gassed and burned in their homes for being righteous 
and merciful.

So, folks, realize the full extent of the evil which treatens you. 
I hear alleged, and on the rarest of occasions, find a "law 
enforcement" type who is an "honest and decent man."  And these 
"honest men" turn a blind eye to the cowboy cowards who prey on 
we, the people.  They are typically older folks, unskilled and 
hoping for retirement.  How honest are they, how righteous are 
they, to maintain their association with an enterprise gone rogue 
and criminal?  When one flies with crows, one must be prepared to 
be shot with crows . . .

Juries -- carefully selected to be blind, cud-chewing idiots devoid 
of mind and spirit and conscience -- convict their fellow men, 
imprison them and rob them and destroy their lives for things which 
they themselves have done and do, because hizzoner the black-robed 
whore tells them to.  Hizzoner the whore and his pimp the District 
Attorney pursue this course for personal aggrandizement.  The whore 
and the pimp are known in the community, stand for election and 
print flyers with pictures of themselves and their families.  The 
legislators who pander to the lowest of public opinion do the same, 
as do the mayors and commisioners and sheriffs.  Po-leeces put 
little badges on the tags of their cars, tags which are the symbols 
of state ownership of the cars which are paid for by the operators 
but controlled by the state.  These little badges, Fraternal Order 
of Police symbols, are the symbols of immunity, which allow their 
wives and children and themselves to violate traffic regulations 
and pass through "roadblocks" with impunity.

These criminal predators are known and recognizable; if we are so 
spineless and lickspittle that we allow them to live fearlessly 
among us, to prey on us, to live a privileged life as honored and 
elevated servants of our masters in government, then we deserve our 
groveling fate.

    "These are the times that try men's souls; the summer 
     soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, 
     shrink from the service of his country; but he that 
     stands it NOW deserves the love and thanks of man and
     woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet 
     we have this consolation with us, that the harder the 
     conflict, the more glorious the triumph.  What we obtain 
     too cheap, we esteem too lightly. 'Tis dearness only
     that gives every thing its value.  Heaven knows how to 
     set a proper price on its goods, and it would be strange 
     indeed, if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not 
     be highly rated. [Unca Sham] with an army to enforce
     tyranny, has declared, that [he] has a right (not only 
     to TAX) but to bind us in all cases whatsoever, and if 
     being bound in that manner is not slavery, then is there 
     not such a thing as slavery upon earth.  Even the 
     expression is impious, for so unlimited a power can 
     belong only to God."

     --Thomas Paine, American Crisis No. 1, paraphrased.

Has anything changed?
