Be happy that militias exist

This is in response to Walt Moore’s letter that appeared on Sunday, Feb. 3, “Local militias have positive histories.” First off, I’d like to say thank you, Mr. Moore, for a very truthful and informative commentary. Great work.

I believe his letter brought to light some very informative and valid issues. Who is the militia, you may ask? They are your farmers, lawyers, doctors, truck drivers, they are your next-door neighbors. They are American citizens willing to stand up against any form of tyrannical oppression.

Despite what you hear about militias through the mainstream media, they are not a government over-throwing, radical-motivated organization. If you would like to find the truth about the militia, I suggest you go to the following website: indianamilitia.org. With the direction that our country is taking, I for one am glad to know we have militias. In case your head has been in the sand, socialism is a very real and growing reality in our country.

Don’t believe it? Look no further than Obamacare and read the fine print. Now they are starting to go after our guns … again. I don’t know about you, but I find it a bit odd that we’ve had all of these terrible shootings before and after the elections. Just a thought.

Oh yeah, it’s also now illegal to buy or sell a certain size soft drink in New York City. Why? Because their mayor made it a law. They need a good, common-sense mayor such as Mayor Duke Bennett of Terre Haute.

The government can paint a pretty picture to the people, but what is really and truly going on behind our backs? You don’t have to look very far. You would be amazed to say the least. As Mr. Moore pointed out, look what happened when Adolf Hitler and his 1,000-year Reich stormed across Europe.

Let us, as Americans, not let that happen here in this great country we call America. Wake up, America. Be safe, be vigilant.
