Dan Riley is currently caged at the Terre Haute Federal Correctional Institution because he supported Ed and Elaine Brown, a New Hampshire couple who asked to see the law that noted that they need pay federal taxes (see video at the bottom of the post, Riley is specifically mentioned at 2:56).
Riley’s body is caged but he continues to reach-out to share his thoughts. And while his words on the letters below aren’t explicitly related to Copblocking, the ideas behind them is – the fact that you are no ones slave. If you do conclude that you own yourself, then that implies that you have a right to defend yourself. That topic is timely, and it’s one that Riley expounds on.
Excerpts from Riley’s first letter:
Sometime in the 1990s a man killed a bunch of children at a school in Scotland; within weeks the United Kingdom had proscribed all private ownership of firearms. . . The same exact scenario is being played out here, now, in America. . . The second amendment means nothing. It is only words on paper. What means something, are men and women willing to take a stand and not backdown. . . The key to our victory is unity encompassed with courage . . . our policy is to emancipate ourselves, but more importantly, to emancipate our posterity
I wish I was there with you on the front lines. Unfortunately I am currently stuck behind enemy lines. I am with you in spirit though. . . we are fighting for our liberty, our families, our country, our land and our posterity. While they fight to enslave. Our cause is superior, thus we are superior.
Just last weekend retired Army Captain Terry M. Hestilow publicly voiced his concern over the Department of Homeland Security’s acquisitions of 2,000,000 rounds of ammunition and 3,000 armored vehicles.
The death and destruction caused by common street criminals pales in comparison to that of government agents (police, military). Like police employees today, many of those folks in the latter camp were just “doing their job.” If you’re presently a law enforcement employee do yourself (and future generations) a favor and check out Cop Block’s Welcome LEOs page.
Clearly, just because an action is said to be “lawful” doesn’t make it right. Conversely, just because an action is said to be “illegal” doesn’t make it wrong. As the old adage notes, when freedom is outlawed, only outlaws will be free.
The next two letters were sent to others who are involved with the Facebook group Freedom for the 3 Brown Supporters
