Come to think of it, I'm offended that I'm not included on the SPLC's “hit list.” Heck, I'm every bit as much of a “patriot” as each of the rest of these guys, even though I don't have the “name and/or face recognition” they do. Why does the SPLC think that their hit list targets love liberty and limited government more than I do, or that I'll do any less than they'll do to preserve what little of both are left and to reinstate them when the socioeconomic collapse (that the SPLC is cheering on) hits us? It just ain't fair!
I think I'm going to email them and demand that they put my name on their list. I recommend that my readers do the same and encourage their liberty-loving friends to do so as well. After all, the Stasi, er, DHS can't keep everyone under surveillance, now can they? At any rate, it would be intriguing to see what kind of “data overload” Mo and his buddies would suffer if we all demanded to be cataloged. Perhaps the sheer number of those demanding inclusion on the list would make Mo and Company realize that the number of true patriots is greater than they imagined. Maybe, just maybe, the realization that they've bitten off more than they can chew will lead to a “realignment” of their priorities. As the old saying goes, I can dream, can't I?
