I do support the United States but I also am wary of those who seek power for the sake of power and would have us believe the Constitution is a "living document" subject to contemporary interpretation rather than meaning exactly what it says.
I am a strong supporter of the law and law enforcement and have freinds who are cops, lawyers, politicians etc., however the issue is not settled until the full process of the system has been caried out.
99.9 % of LEOs are good folks, but I don't personally know the ones involved in this investigation and am fully aware of the power of the state when it is brought to bear against citizens, especially the poor and uneducated. I respect the system of law but am also well aware of its complexity. A system that is designed to enofrce the law for the benefit of all citizens, yet has the potential for abuse. I will never forget that this system can and has been used by people with malice and agendas to persecute unpopular segments of the population. Thus I will generally take the side of the citizen until the process has ended in a fair trial and a jury of their peers who has heard and seen all of the evidence on both sides makes a decision as to their guilt or innocence. That is what we are supposed to do I think, since we are to presume innocence until proven guilty. That is also why the burden of proof is always on the state. A citizen need not prove their innocence, our system demands that innocence be presumed and that is what I am doing. If that somehow seems un-American to you, I'm sorry.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.
Settle down gents, settle down.

You know what? Peterson (the ex-cop), he might walk. Doesn't mean he didn't do it.
For discussion purposes it isn't necessary to assume innocence, and it certainly is wrong to assume that the authorities only made the arrest because of some hidden political agenda or hidden religious bias.
My opinion, the arrest was made because these guys did something that justified the initial attention of the police and the subsequent indictment. I'm not going to smear the undercover agent. I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt until something comes out at trial that he engaged in entrapment or fabrication. I'm not going to attack the motives of the officials as political. I think their motives were plain old fashioned law enforcement and nothing more.
Tyranny some yell. Yeah, sure. In a country of 300 million some bad things happen and people generalize from the specific to the general and falsely conclude we live in a tyranny instead of a free country. Then they hype that idea in their minds and talk themselves into the notion that therefore rebellion is OK. Well it isn't.
And we have laws on the books to protect ourselves from people like that.
And we have good LEOs who do the dangerous work of protecting us from people like that.
Lots of speculation, darn few facts. I'm surprised that there have been no photo ops by the LEOs of the pipe bombs.

Why the attack on me, Hopyard?
Are you accusing me of saying these fine officers are dishonest? Where in the world did I post that?
What political purposes are you referring to?
Don't you agree that these people are innocent until proven guilty?
I think you over extremely sensitive about this particular arrest, and I find that to be very strange.

It don't bother me none, if they pester and arrest and confiscate the guns of these Christians, militia men, Minutemen, Tea Pary people, SWAT and SpecOp wannabes, hunters and their other gun-loving flag-waving patriotic sisters and brothers...until we FINALLY satisfy the Blolomturd Herd and Brady Bunch and the Southern Poverty Law Center; because they will finally quit boohooing, suing, whining and pestering us .22 caliber target shooters, and leave us alone and let us have fun with our guns inside and outside our homes...and they will be quittin', unlike they did in Britain.

These people are grade-a nuts. i don't have any problem with talking to an imaginary friend but these people are almost on the same level as islamic terrorist groups.As christians we all are a part of the Souls of the Body of Christ, the one true church of Christ. Not any specific man made building or any man controlled organization. This is the belief of the Hutaree soldier, as should the belief of all followers in Christ be.
We believe that one day, as prophecy says, there will be an Anti-Christ. All christians must know this and prepare, just as Christ commanded. Luke 22:35-37, And He said to them, “When I sent you without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?” So they said, “Nothing.” 36, Then he said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. 37, “For I say to you that this which is written must be accomplished in me: ‘And He was numbered with transgressors,’ For the things concerning Me have an end.” This clearly states the reason for the training and preparation of the Hutaree.
Jesus wanted us to be ready to defend ourselves using the sword and stay alive using equipment. The only thing on earth to save the testimony and those who follow it, are the members of the testimony, til the return of Christ in the clouds. We, the Hutaree, are prepared to defend all those who belong to Christ and save those who aren’t. We will still spread the word, and fight to keep it, up to the time of the great coming.
Being Hutaree is to stay the testimony of Christ alive, and follow a motto, John15:13, “Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” We are hoping that through this website we can reach out to those who have not the word of God and those who are lost in there ideas of Christ. Many of the things Christ said would happen have happened and some things are still in the works of happening.
We all must know that we all carry a cross and a soldiers cross is just as heavy as any other. Just as Jesus did we must also carry our cross to our destination our life abounds us to. All people are givin a destination by God’s will and have to continue there walk to there own golgotha. But many people, even christians don’t agree with the things we do but all we have to say is, we will not argue over the Bible, read it for what it is. We believe only what the Bible says and not on only philosophy, as many christians of this day do. Christ is our king of kings and top general of all things, for we are not of this world but we live in it.
The Hutaree will one day see its enemy and meet him on the battlefield if so God wills it. We will reach out to those who are yet blind in the last days of the kingdoms of men and bring them to life in Christ. Daniel 11:32-35, “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. 33, “And those of the people who understand shall instruct many; yet for many days they shall fall by sword and flame, by captivity and plundering. 34, “Now when they fall, they shall be aided with a little help; but many shall join them by intrigue. 35 “And some of those of understanding shall fall, to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time.”
