The dictionary defines terrorism as the systematic use of terror, especially as a means of coercion, and defines terror as violent or destructive acts committed by groups to intimidate a population or government into granting their demands. We are not using violence or coercion.
We are on a list because we believe the first step to martial law is to take away our guns and our Second Amendment rights by flooding the media with stories of mass shootings and imploring people to see how “bad” guns are.
We are on a list because we are on the right track, and putting our names on a list and calling us terrorists is a means to draw negative attention to people like us.
We are on a list because we believe that it takes more people like Potok for the government to take away our rights, and that is exactly what they are counting on. We are on a list because it is our hope that we can band together to get the truth out, so that one day, maybe we can have the combined strength and fortitude to do something about it. We are on a list to scare us into not speaking out, lest we be arrested for being a “terrorist.”
Who is using coercion here? Do you know that the Federal Reserve is a privately held (non-government) organization? Would you be curious about branches of the federal government purchasing large amounts of (mostly) hollow-point ammo, which cannot be used in warfare under the Geneva Convention?
Find a doctor who will actually show you a package insert from a vaccine, and you will read that they can, indeed, cause side effects such as SIDS, autism and many others. Do you know how many of our rights have already been taken away by laws like the Patriot Act?
Those of us who believe that the Oklahoma City bombing and 9/11 were inside jobs have actually taken the time to research the facts before coming to our conclusions, instead of listening to the propaganda that the government would have us believe. If everyone would take the time to research the true facts, the government would not have the ability to take away our rights, because everyone would be asking questions, instead.
Protecting our right to bear arms has nothing to do with being militia-minded terrorists. It means that if it comes down to it, we may have no choice but to pick up our arms and protect our God-given rights. We hope and pray that it doesn’t come down to that. In fact, nothing could make us happier than to be wrong about everything!
