    Pretty sure that's one of the main reasons why America's Founders supported a popular militia.

    Was it posted the part time interventionists on our forums? It wouldn't surprise me. They are absolutely TERRIFIED of ISIS.

    Behead them with bayonets?
    Inspired by US Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, this site is dedicated to facilitating grassroots initiatives that aim to restore a sovereign limited constitutional Republic based on the rule of law, states' rights and individual rights. We seek to enshrine the original intent of our Founders to foster respect for private property, seek justice, provide opportunity, and to secure individual liberty for ourselves and our posterity.


    A police state is a small price to pay for living in the freest country on earth.

    I just lost it at 3:10 LOL


    Paul: 12,000 bayonets have been given out. What purpose are bayonets being given out for?

    Estevez: Senator, bayonets are available under the program. I can't answer what a local police force would need a bayonet for.

    Paul: I can give you an answer--NONE.

    Estevez: Ok.

    That's what the 2nd Amendment is for and why private citizens should be armed.

    Rand Paul Blasts FEMA! “What purpose are bayonets being given out for?”

    SEPTEMBER 9, 2014

    Senator Rand Paul publicly denounced the militarization of police as a response to the events in Ferguson, Missouri. Paul spoke before a meeting of the Senate Homeland Security Committee at a hearing on Tuesday to ask questions about the type of equipment that local police are attaining from the Department of Defense.

    The Assistant Administrator of FEMA for Grant Programs, Brian Kamoie, responded to Senator Paul that the categories of personal protective equipment for police officers contain a prohibition for the use of riot suppression. Kamoie promised to investigate the incidents in Missouri to determine whether there was a misuse of equipment against civilians.

    Paul appeared angry about the use of MRAP trucks in towns as small as 3,900 people. The Kentucky senator put the FEMA representative and the Obama administration on blast for handing out thousands of bayonets to local police. “What purpose are bayonets being given out for?”

    “I can’t answer what a local police force would use a bayonet for,” Alan Estevez said. “We’re going to look at what we’re providing under the administration’s review of all these programs.”

    These hearings are so pointless. You never get anything but the run-around. "I'll have to wait to see what the Dept. of Justice finds in their investigation." Then you ask the D.O.J. and they say go ask the people who approve grants.

    That's $#@!ing bureaucracy for you.

    He should be asking, "In your opinion which person should be losing their job for distributing bayonets to police forces?'
    In New Zealand:
    The Coastguard is a Charity
    Air Traffic Control is a private company run on user fees
    The DMV is a private non-profit
    Rescue helicopters and ambulances are operated by charities and are plastered with corporate logos
    The agriculture industry has zero subsidies
    5% of the national vote, gets you 5 seats in Parliament
    A tax return has 4 fields
    Business licenses aren't even a thing nor are capital gains taxes
    Constitutional right to refuse any type of medical care

    Yeah. Who the hell was the one who made that call? We will never find out, unfortunately.

    Start firing randomly, then the finger pointing will start.

    Its a prisoners dilemma, the bureaucrats have amazing self control. But the moment you start firing people because of something that they know was someone else's fault they will break.

    Freedom will be stolen from you in a heartbeat if you do not behave as a wild and ravening beast pursuant to its protection.

    "Government" is naught but a mental construct, a script to which people meekly accept and play out their assigned roles by those with no authority to dictate such.
