And will someone please show the $PLC the door. They now have the American Family Association and the Family Research Council as hate groups! No, I'm not being facetious.

"We don't pick up weapons to kill people, to start the revolution... the revolution is really easy to do nowadays. What is the system? The system revolves around the banks. It's based on the power of the banks... so it must be destroyed starting with the banks. This means that the 3 million people with their placards on the street... they go to the bank, withdraw their money from the banks and these ones collapse. 10 million people and the banks collapse and there is not real threat, a real revolution. We must go to the bank. In this case there would be a real revolution. It's not complicated. You simply go to the bank in your country and withdraw your money. If there are enough people withdrawing their money, the system collapses. No weapon, no blood, or anything like that."
This upcoming Thanksgiving weekend the TN government will erect unconstitutional road blocks randomly prohibiting people from travel. The only way to pass through these freedom-abridging, revenue-enhancing blockades will be to submit to an unreliable sobriety test while also submitting your identification papers to government agents.
These checkpoints are unconstitutional (regardless of what the courts have erroneously ruled) because both the US and TN Constitutions protect the right to unwarranted and unreasonable searches. We have a right NOT to be searched by the government without some reasonable evidence of criminal activity. Are we to accept that merely wishing to travel gives rise to reasonable suspicion of criminality? Why allow our government to treat us like criminals for simply traveling? Isn't the restriction of travel without government permission the hallmark of an authoritarian state? With the recent revolt against the TSA at our airports, the People are starting to understand that our government, at all levels, is out of control.
Here is the list of the locations of the known published checkpoints:
(be advised, this might only be a partial list)
Just because you may not be under the influence doesn't mean you are safe from prosecution. The government has issued orders and put pressure on the law enforcement in the past to increase DUI/DWI arrests even though the number of DWI/DUI instances have decreased over time:

Words kind of fail of us when it comes to this interview. (That does not happen often.) We have written in the past about how the younger generation – especially in the US – has available to it a level of free-market literacy that is vaster than that of any previous generation. The knowledge that Stewart Rhodes shows us in this interview (some of it obviously written as well as extemporaneous) is positively mind-boggling.
Compare his words to any modern "conservative" American pundit – from George Will to Patrick Buchanan – and in our estimation you will begin to see what is occurring; some sort of quantum leap. Things that took old foggies decades to figure out are common knowledge nowadays among the younger free-market crowd. Times are indeed a-changing.

"Naturally Concealed is a homebased business brought into being by one woman's desire to find a comfortable, concealable, discreet handgun holster that could be worn under dress clothes as easily as it could be worn under every day work, play, or exercise clothes. After coming up with what I believe to be the perfect concealed carry option, I decided to share it with other women looking for a comfortable, wearable holster."

Gun Owners of America was able to help elect 5 new pro-gun members to the United States Senate and more than 40 pro-gunners to the House of Representatives!
AND YOU MADE IT POSSIBLE. Thank you.
In an election where we were the ONLY NATIONAL GUN GROUP to help many of these candidates, it highlights just how critical the gun issue is to Americans, and how important you were to those victories.
GOA could not have done the work without the support of our members -- and now, more than ever, we need your help to double or even triple our membership before 2012!!!
Why? Because 2012 will be a presidential election year and the radical left wing in America will once again be "all in" for Barack Obama.
If they turn out their forces to help Obama win re-election, those voters will translate down to votes for anti-gun members of Congress again, just as they did in 2008.
We can't let that happen without a fight.
Gun Owners of America and GOA Political Victory Fund used limited resources this year to make great gains to protect the Second Amendment. If you can help us grow now, by alerting your family, friends and neighbors, to the work of GOA and the need for them to become members, we will be able to win additional races in 2012!
Believe me, the anti-gun left in this nation has not given up. They see the 2010 election as a hiccup, not the end of the battle or the war. And we can't look at it that way either.
The bottom line in elections is that there is strength in numbers, and if GOA doubles in size NOW, we can multiply what we did this year by several times. That is real "bang for the buck."
With our limited resources this year, we were able to travel around the country giving the voting records of the pro-gun and anti-gun candidates to their voters. We were able to make thousands of phone calls directly to pro-gun voters in the target districts. We were able to send mailings and e-mail alerts to our members to ask them to volunteer in key races.
And the payoff is those 5 new Senators and over 40 members of the House I mentioned above.
But our work is far from over!
Anti-gun Harry Reid is still in control as the Majority Leader of the United States Senate. Nancy Pelosi still wields her power in the House.
AND BARACK OBAMA IS STILL PRESIDENT!
As I said, we cannot sit back now and think we won the war. We won the first battle over the Obama Administration and the radical left who still hold the leadership in the Senate.
That's why Gun Owners of America needs you.
There is a reason why Congressman Ron Paul calls GOA the only "no compromise gun lobby in Washington."
There is a reason why Senator Tom Coburn calls GOA the "real gun lobby in Washington D.C."
And that reason is YOU!
Our members help put pressure on Congress every time we send one of our alerts asking you to contact your representatives about gun legislation.
When our lobbyists hit the halls of Congress and tell members we are opposed or supportive of a bill, they know our membership will also let them know WE ARE ALL WATCHING HOW THEY VOTE.
Just think how much more effective we can be if we double or triple our membership in the next 12 months!
2010 has been the "easy year" when it comes to election gains. We went out and picked the "low-hanging fruit."
The races in 2012 will be for tougher districts, tougher candidates and we'll also be fighting the Obama factor -- where the radical left-wing will be pouring huge amounts of money and manpower to help make him a two-term president.
So, if you've just sat back to enjoy the many victories of November 2nd, DON'T!
WE NEED YOU!
You are our best salesperson to tell our story to your friends, neighbors and everyone you communicate with around the country.
Tell them that for a small membership donation of $20 or $30, they can be a major factor in not only stopping anti-gun laws... they can be part of the organization that is fighting to repeal the anti-gun laws already on the books.
I don't care if they are hunters, shooters, collectors or just people who understand that the Second Amendment is critical to all our other freedoms, we need them as members of GOA.
And if they sign up to receive our GOA e-mail alerts, they can be part of our lobbying team of people all over the country who call, write and e-mail our elected leaders on important gun issues.
GOA and our members have stood alone many times when others compromised, or said legislation or Presidential appointments could not be stopped -- and we have proved the naysayers wrong.
WE WILL NOT COMPROMISE -- your rights are not "bargaining chips" to be used at the negotiating table, and we will never treat them as such.
Don't read this Alert and do nothing. Pass it on to everyone you know and ask them to join Gun Owners of America now by going to:
It will make a huge difference in the outcome of the 2012 elections and the future of this nation. Thank you.

I hope he isn't getting Alzheimer's.
But even more horrifying is what all of this says about how far America has fallen. We are rapidly becoming a Big Brother police state where average citizens are routinely treated like dehumanized prison inmates.
It is a national disgrace and the rest of the world is watching all of this. Barack Obama and many of our other top politicians continue to stand up and defend all of this abuse by TSA officials. They are making us look like scum to the rest of the globe."
