As I watch the world turn, I have noticed that people are more apt to take up arms and kill people - many times fellow countrymen - much quicker than they are to withdraw their participation in the finance of their oppressors. To me, this is backwards.

Are you willing to quit paying your taxes?
How serious are you about liberty, really?
Or, do you still have faith in the political process?
