Declaration of War vs. The People
On October 23, 2007 the U.S. Government declared War on the American People. By a vote of 404 to 6, the U.S. House of Representatives approved HR 1955: The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007. This act designates every American who acts -- OR PROMOTES ACTION -- against the U.S. Government to be a TERRORIST. Simply put: If you've ever said that George W. Bush should be hanged as a war criminal, you sir, are a Terrorist.
404 to 6. And they did this while no one was paying attention.

"Paper is poverty, .... it is only the ghost of money, and not money itself." -- Thomas Jefferson, 1788
Last week while the horrific fires were burning up Southern California and every major news network, including cable were providing non-stop coverage, a very dangerous bill to liberty and freedom was passed by 404 members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Called the 'Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007', (snip)
Our own government is preparing to wage war on us and it’s not even the Repubs leading the charge. This little bit of legislative treason comes to us courtesy of our beloved Democrats.
We can all thank the bill’s sponsor, Democrat Jane Harmon [CA-36], and her 14 co-sponsors only four of whom are Repubs.

And...consider that the SCOTUS is going to hear a "Right To Bear Arms" case in the near future.
As I said...this doesn't seem good to me. Paranoid? Maybe. But decide for yourself.
