Lyle Myhr Quote

“When they took the 4th Amendment, I was quiet because I didn't deal drugs. When they took the 6th Amendment, I was quiet because I was innocent. When they took the 2nd Amendment, I was quiet because I didn't own a gun. Now they have taken the 1st Amendment, and I can only be quiet.”

I'd like to send this to the Indiana Supreme Court. They recently revoked our 4th Amendment rights.

Scary, isn't it. Do something.

This is exactly how tyranny happens. Our Constitutional rights have been infringed for most of the last hundred years. We the People must continue to wake up and "mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor." Nothing less will turn this around.

Like the sentiment. Think there is a lot of bumps and breaks in that slippery slope though.

Against this kind of thing we citizens of this great nation must always be alert. Thanks to the editor of this site for reminding us of how perilous our position, how close to losing ANY of our liberties; one taken away can become all taken away.
