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

Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann expressed concern when learning that
the owners of dealerships had to resort to appealing to local Democratic
Senators in order to get their dealership back. Congresswoman Bachmann stated, “We have gangster government when the Federal Government has set up a new cartel and private businesses now have to go begging with their hand out to their local—hopefully well politically connected—Congressman or their Senator so they can buy a peace offering for that local business.

Why does the government call the people corporations names spelled in all capital letters? Why do all courts fly admiralty flags, the ones with the gold fringe, in the courtroom.

From indelibly American quotations like "Give me liberty or give me death" to the iconic pairing of "liberty and justice" in the Pledge of Allegiance, there's no shortage of examples demonstrating that Americans have historically placed a high value on the concept of freedom.
But in a country as large and diverse as the United States, the concept of liberty is sure to have different definitions for different people. More complicating still is the fact that, beyond the overarching liberties defined by the Constitution, individual states have their own legislation to address individual freedoms that aren't explicitly covered in federal doctrine.
