Ruby Ridge + 20

WP reminds us of the horrific events 20 years ago,

On August 21st, 1992, US Marshals shot and murdered a dog and a 14-year old boy named Sammy Weaver. In self-defense, a family friend, Kevin Harris, who was staying with the Weavers, fired in response and killed one of the Marshals at Ruby Ridge, Idaho.

The government ongoing encroachment of power hasn’t abated since then.  Go and read his analysis including the Rules of Engagement and additional stuff regarding Project Gunwalker.

He poetically ends with:

Our Founding Fathers, knew what tyranny is- they left us the tools to keep it at bay, we let those tools rust and squandered their wisdom but I will not forget these words:

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”   Patrick Henry

I firmly think, unfortunately, it is nearly time that atrocities such as these, and others will be happening once again. And if you do not believe or think so, then read yesterdays post.  (U.S. Marine arrested for Facebook posts)

h/t  And I ask, whose paranoid are you?
