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 treatys 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.
