We've been reminded again, this time by the people of East Timor, of a fundamental truth of government. While the vote of an armed electorate can be an enforceable demand upon its government, the vote of an unarmed electorate might be an exercise in futility. In East Timor, 98% of the voters voted and 75% expressed the same opinion.1 Yet, their vote was of no effect because they lacked the means to enforce it. Again, light is shed upon why the U.S. government is trying so hard to disarm the voters.
The only things that stand between Americans and the tyranny of the U.S. government are the willingness and ability of Americans to defend themselves against that government, which has changed from government by the people to government of the people. It was never government for the people.

Washington Local police can now take a single fingerprint from a suspect at a roadside arrest and find out in minutes from a new FBI computerized national crime database whether the person is wanted, rather than waiting hours, days or longer, that the old FBI system took. The FBI just launched its new National Crime Information Center 2000. The new system now has the ability to automatically process fingerprints and mugshots. It also contains the information about wanted people, criminal histories, missing and deported people, stolen guns, vehicle license plates, stocks, boats, and "other" articles. Now a police officer in a station or squad car in the field can put a suspect's index finger into a small reader that transmits the print by radio to the FBI NCIC 2000 computers in Clarksburg, W. Va. Within minutes, the NCIC computer automatically without any action by FBI employees checks the single fingerprint against 250,000 fingerprints in the FBI's file of fugitives and wanted persons. The answer pops out in minutes. If the print identifies the suspect as someone who is wanted, the NCIC 2000 computer not only relays the result to local police but also sends a mugshot of the wanted person.

In November of 1963, I was one sick girl. The doctors told my mother that I needed an operation to make me better. They did a D & C in November of that year. The doctors said that instead of a D & C they should have done a hysterectomy but they wanted me to "grow up normal". Please tell me what is normal about having to get shots of Demerol or Darvon in your behind every day for seven days during your period. Also, the laws stated that if I had 1 in 1,000,000 chances of getting pregnant I could not have the hysterectomy.
In November of 1969, I was again a sick woman. The doctors finally found the tumors that I could feel by pressing on my abdomen. They finally decided to do "exploratory surgery" and they found 7 lbs of tumors on the outside of my uterus. The tumors had almost shut off my tubes from my kidneys to my bladder. The tumor was wrapped around my back bone also. They took out the tumors, one tube and ovary. The doctors told me that I should have a complete hysterectomy then but the laws stated that if I had 1 in 1,000,000 chances of getting pregnant I could not have the hysterectomy.
Fast forward to December of 1972, after 6 months of doctors telling me "there is nothing wrong with you. Get a job or have a kid.", I told them if they did not do anything I would do it myself. The doctors finally took me into the hospital and did, again exploratory surgery. When I was with it enough they were on my bed crying because they had been WRONG and I had cancer. They were really sorry etc. Because of the law Roe v Wade they were allowed (finally this time) to do the hysterectomy as well as remove the tumor. I had finally gotten what I needed in medical care.
Now, just because a man in eBay [September 2, 1999 editor] wanted to sell his kidney to the highest bidder the great white bureaucrats in our nation's capital say he cannot do this. This to me seems just like when I needed a hysterectomy in 1963 and 1969 and could not get it because it was illegal. This man may be selling his kidney, but he is also helping a person who might die otherwise. The slave masters in Washington D.C. say no to the slave. They don't stop to think that the man has 2 (count them) 2 kidneys and can live just as well on one as on two. They don't stop to think that the man is trying to help another person as well as himself. They just want to control all of their slaves, and don't you dare try to think for yourself.
What are we citizens of the United States of America or Slaves of the United States of America? Only you can answer this question. And your answer defines what we give to our children.

If people owned themselves, they'd be able to dispose of their organs as a matter of choice. By what logic does the government have jurisdiction over these matters? The simplest answer is that the government owns the organs.
Anarchists talk abut a world without rulers. Communists say that, after a generation or two of Leninist dictatorship, comes withering away of the state. In practice, after two generations of Stalinist dictatorship, came the transfer of the state to the "democratic" gangsters. Today we are ruled by gangsters, & no one is happy about it but the gangsters, whose concept of happiness is suspect anyway. But is a world without LEADERS really possible? I'm disgusted, not because there are leaders, but because our "leaders" are gangsters. The CIA seems to be behind everything, from Kissinger to Yeltsin to the "libertarian" Ventura. Ventura showed that a former wrestler could be no more a clown than Democrats or Republicans. But by continuing in wrestling from the governor's mansion, he manages to drag US politics even lower.
Robertson says that Clinton should obey his advisors. Empires from Rome to China to England to the US have been run by bureaucracies. But leaders, whether chosen by the army, primogenitor, or vote, are supposed to direct bureaucracies, not be directed by them. Bureaucrats are not supposed to tell leaders what to do. But of course the world today is run by the covert bureaucracies of the CIA, FBI, & other secret police. Louis Freeh, a typical shadow government bureaucrat, has consistently attacked the Clinton administration, in concert with the right wing conspirators like Robertson. I hope Clinton & Reno will take advantage of the re-emergent Waco scandal to sack Freeh & some of his subversive bureaucratic associates. It's people like this who make real leadership impossible, opening the way for "libertarians" like Ventura, as well as Bradley, Beatty, & other such sports.

What do you think about Janet Reno?
Dear Political Analyst
I suppose that if they named a town after her, then she can't be all bad.
