Mr. Case:
I'm glad and proud to see there are other 'maniacs' out here besides myself.

Through thick and thin (and I do mean thin-- details are irrelevant),
with the help of a tiny number of good friends, I have managed to
retain arms and ammunition and reloading supplies.... and my life and
liberty-- and maybe a bit of iron rations.

And I am proud to see, as well, that you understand the political
situation. There are others. And I have been writing and posting and
talking on a radio show about Heller in the same vein as
you since it first cropped up. We should know how they intend to
'reduce us' by mid June.

And you may remember a historical footnote re the ATF from the mid 90s
that I was involved with exposing-- their Good O'Boy Roundup.

Keep hammering. Others of us are, as well. God bless you.

All government, of course, is against liberty.
H. L. Mencken

Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands,
hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
H. L. Mencken

Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under.
H. L. Mencken

I believe that all government is evil, and that trying to improve it
is largely a waste of time.
H. L. Mencken

If a politician found he had cannibals among his constituents, he
would promise them missionaries for dinner.

It doesn't take a majority to make a rebellion; it takes only a few
determined leaders and a sound cause.
H. L. Mencken

It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor
of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me
forever ineligible for public office.

Judge: a law student who marks his own examination-papers.
H. L. Mencken

Most people are unable to write because they are unable to think, and
they are unable to think because they congenitally lack the equipment
to do so, just as they congenitally lack the equipment to fly over the
Nine times out of ten, in the arts as in life, there is actually no
truth to be discovered; there is only error to be exposed.
H. L. Mencken

No one in this world has ever lost money by underestimating the
intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone
ever lost public office thereby.
H. L. Mencken

The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to
think things out... without regard to the prevailing superstitions and
taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the
government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.
H. L. Mencken

The penalty for laughing in a courtroom is six months in jail; if it
were not for this penalty, the jury would never hear the evidence.
H. L. Mencken

The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the
urge to rule it.
H. L. Mencke

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed by
menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them
H. L. Mencken

The worst government is often the most moral. One composed of cynics
is often very tolerant and humane. But when fanatics are on top there
is no limit to oppression.
H. L. Mencken

We must be willing to pay a price for freedom.
H. L. Mencken

THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the
sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of
their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and
thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered;
yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict,
the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too
lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven
knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be
strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be
highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has
declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but "to BIND us in ALL
CASES WHATSOEVER" and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery,
then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the
expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to
