They call it a Nanny State. It is the micro-management of the American collective for optimum manipulation and control, for profit. It is about coercion of the masses, the management of mind, body and soul for ultimate exploitation, and all of it for the greatest potential, a black bottom line. Fear and lust is the cement that holds us enslaved, a force that can only be broken by a standard bound of blood and sweat, a standard given to us by our ancestor’s dreams of freedom, and liberty from tyranny. This is our American heritage, and it cannot be denied.
These ploys, these schemes, have gone mostly unchecked for decades, and the world for that matter, and it took losing 42 percent of assets, with 16.5 trillion in debt to finally wake some up. Those who raised their voice to warn us are now lost in the static, marginalized out of existence by big-brother money, printed out of thin air. Yes, something is not right, and we are just starting to see the lies, the self-motivated and outright evil intent that has become a malignant cancer in the heart of our Federal Government, controlled by a military industrialist complex with unlimited resources, the Federal Reserve in league with Central Banks.
It is a government that can buy up billions of rounds of ammunition for what they call “Homeland Security,” outright threaten our second amendment rights, and not find it obligatory to explain themselves… And from this hidden agenda, fear and mistrust is causing a run on weapons and ammo, and the shelves are almost empty around the country. Amazingly, the government, and the bankers who control them, are the root cause of our dilemma. They hide behind mountains of red tape, false information and flags, and seem to be arming to protect itself from us, we the people. Patriots are standing in line for the last box of ammo, for the same reason. Is the Government, now controlled by Progressive Communists, preparing to take up arms against Americas who want to protect their Constitution? The paper trail says yes. The lack of an answer from a clear question says yes. Presidential mandates without Congressional approval says yes.
“Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!“
“Government regulations are out of control. They dictate how much water goes into your commode, and how much water comes out of your shower-head. They determine how hot the water needs to be in your washing machine, and how many miles to the gallon your car must achieve. Since the Patriot Act, your banking records, your gun registration, and your phone bill are easily accessible by government snoops. Mothers are arrested for buying raw milk. Families are fined for selling bunny rabbits without a license. Home and property owners are strapped with obscene fines, entangled in costly legal messes, and sent to federal prison, all for moving dirt from one end of their land to another. Unelected bureaucrats, armed with arbitrary rules and no need to back them up, stonewall and attack American citizens at every turn. The damage can be overwhelmingly taxing—financially, emotionally and even physically.
And who is being held accountable? Government regulation and red tape run amok in Washington, and honest, tax-paying citizens are the victims of an administration’s misuse and abuse of power. Now, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, takes an in-depth look at the legislation that is trampling the rights of ordinary citizens, strangling their ability to conduct private, everyday activities without egregious government interference. He highlights outrageous searches, seizures and arrests, and points to thousands of regulations that have been added to the books since Obama took office. Most importantly, he charts a direction out of this mess, and toward renewed freedom for all Americans.
These stories are of everyday Americans badgered and harassed by their own government—the very institution that is supposed to serve us all. This gross breach of our constitution is as frightening as it is real, and GOVERNMENT BULLIES is a call to action against it.” -Introduction of Ran Paul’s new book, Government Bullies.

In my neighborhood, a feigned punch has the same effect as a landed punch, and the reaction is identical. So is a threat, and that should be well known, even in the inner city of Chicago.
One would think that being married for 41 years, a father, tax payer, a Vietnam Vet, an oilman and businessman would be fearless. I am not. I am afraid, and it has settled all the way to my very soul. But fear does not make me a coward, sir. My responsibility weighs heavy, and throughout my life I have thought to die defending this country. Never in all of my vivid imagination would I have ever thought that my own government would look at me as a threat to their power. That their power and control would mean more to them than my life, my country, and the future of my children… Now, you see what I have done here? I’ve mentioned my family. Suddenly, I have strength in my arms, and because of my responsibility for them, it will take more than the threat of hollow point bullets, FEMA Camps, cameras, The Patriot Act, The NDAA, drones, or disposable plastic caskets to put our collective bodies.
A bully thrives on weakness, and this is why I will never give up my right to bear arms, nor will I ever submit to your threats. Never. And as an Oath Keeper, I will never obey any directive signed by a tyrant king that is unconstitutional. Never. I will not comply. And yes, I’m still afraid of you Progressive Communists, as I have everything to lose. And that is what makes me a very strong adversary, as each of us will be held accountable, to the last man standing. We have the same blood in our veins as our founders, and the words “Give me liberty or give me death” was not uttered by a man prepared to die. He said that out loud, a conviction, and nothing can stand in the way of that truth. You have raped and pillaged long enough, and we see you for what you are, bullies. I am not your slave.
I would never be violent or aggressive, never take the first punch, always thinking that our Republic’s Rule of Law is the greatest of all power. But if you ignore Rule of Law, shred my Constitution, impose brute force to bend me to your will, I will resist. And my God-given rights have nothing to do with you, your threats, or the heal of your boot. Do not tread on me.
Read Ran Paul’s new book, “Government Bullies.” It will open your eyes.
