Dear Doug and the LBOers,

If Clinton,Gore and Co. had to react to an armed separatist movement composed of a few thousand militia members equipped with automatic weapons, rocket propelled grenades, land mines, anti-tank weapons and high explosives, my guess is that they would come down so hard on them they would make Slobby & Co. look like Mother Theresa. And I take a modified Hitchens view of Mother Theresa.

Remember how Clinton and Co. handled the little scattered kook separatists outbreaks at Waco, the Montana Freeman, the Ruby Ridge incident etc.etc. How many are dead, wounded or in jail for these separatist outbreaks in our own country? Can you imagine the carnage if we had a major outbreak of armed separatism?

Your email pal,

Tom L.
