Brother and Sister Patriots:     The recent acceleration of the federal government's pace of annexing new powers, all at the expense of our liberty, mandates all Americans to seize every opportunity to shore up our defenses and arm ourselves for our essential counter attack.  These unfortunate developments have forced me to come out of my back room activities in the Truth Attack operations to make this vital and urgent appeal.

    We all know that freedom is not free.  But what is the cost of freedom?  In the beginning our ancestors paid for our freedom with their blood.  When England kidnapped our sailors, invaded our nation and put the torch to our capitol we again paid a dear price in life and limb.  When threats to freedom appeared on foreign shores mothers sacrificed their sons on distant beaches and to unmarked watery graves and our young men and women have always risen to t
