What will you do about jack booted thugs?

Written by 

To the Editor:

Watching the YouTube videos (since removed) of the “jack booted thugs” trampling on our Third, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Tenth Amendment natural rights recently in the greater Boston area, I experienced a great sadness. Sadness because peace officers, who took an oath to support and defend the Constitution, believed that they could commit these unconstitutional crimes; sadness that there has been no great public outcry against these atrocities; sadness that media commentators and officeholders haven’t spoken out vociferously against these fascist terror tactics against the American people; sadness mostly because despite the facade of liberty we still enjoy, all of these acts and attitudes mean that we have lost the republic. 

What comes next won’t be pleasant. I know that I will continue to work to restore the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights that the founders handed down to us. What will you do? Choose wisely.

Benjamin Franklin once said: “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
