I barely know what to say about this article, about the audacity, the arrogance the cynicism of the government officials who have proposed it and about any sheeple who would sit back and allow their liberties to be so encroached upon.
Yet, I can’t think of a better reason to vote Constitutional-conservative. Please be awake and sober as you enter the voting booth… our very existence as a free people depends upon your choices.
