    I am new to these boards but come here as a battle scarred soldier from many political debates on many different boards and websites through the years. I became sensitized to government tyranny while working as a public servant for a major American city and wrote a book about my experiences entitled “While We Sleep; A story about government without law”. Upon passage of GATT in 1994, I realized there was something very wrong with our government and acting as Attorney Pro Se, sued our President and Congress in Federal District Court concerning this treaty’s constitutionality. I also hosted a website for several years called The Constitution Forum which I shut down last year.

    Presently, I am a profound pessimist who believes nothing can be done to wake most Americans up to our present dire situation. Despite this, I keep trying because I want to part of the solution and not part of the problem. I also believe life is a journey and not a destination. It is how one lives their life that matters not if they succeed and this being so, my conscience will not let me succumb to tyranny.

    Profound pessimism steeped in optimistic hope? :D

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    Freedombecki: I do enjoy crossing swords with intelligent people and am I sure I wil meet many here. I also realize there will also be many spoilers who do everything possible to get sincere posts off track. Its kind of like the virus creation folks, they revel in creating chaos and havoc to the detriment of us all.

    Ropey: You are right! As dismal as my brain thinks things are, a kernal of hope remains and this kernal is probably the real reason for my persistance.

    Jroc: Being an Ex-Navy Fighter Pilot I am very comfortable in war zones.

    Big Black Dog: I am an animal person with dogs being my favorite. Being single at the ripe old age of 68, I have no time for pets right now. If I ever couple up again, this will probably change.

    Thanks again for the welcome and this being April 1st, have a very foolish day.

    Hi and welcome. As soon as you make 15 posts, you'll be able to post a link to more information about your book and any other spam that you may find fanciful.

    I am trembling with anticipation. I noticed that this board has over 30,000 participants. Hopefully, that is not 30,000 to 1. Of course, when I first started this game in 1994, the odds were far worse than that.
