The problem in Oregon is not new; this is a repeat of Waco, Ruby Ridge, Wounded Knee and the Trail of Tears. WE have been warned many times in the past; we never learn. We have let the Government by the People for the People become the government by the government for the government. Every one of the above tragedies would never have happened if the states had not let the government encroach on the rights of the states. Following is a warning that was given many years ago by one of our early presidents and founders warned of growing Federal Government:
"The great dread...William Henry Harrison 9th president --seems to have been that the reserved powers of the States would be absorbed by those of the Federal Government and a consolidated power established, leaving to the States the shadow only of that independent action for which they had so zealously contended.”..
