...with regard to the innate nature of gov't, and why gov't abuse occurs. It CERTAINLY explains why BATF is what it is.....
Originally by Ayn Rand, in [i]Atlas Shrugged [/i] "Do you really think that we want those laws to be observed? We want them broken. We're after power and we mean it. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breakings laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted-and you create a nation of law breakers--and then you cash in on guilt." -Ayn Rand

Adam - Truth comes from many sources, EVEN those that deny the existence of THE SOURCE OF ALL TRUTH. Personally, I don't care WHO the truth comes from as far as my willingness to embrace it. And having YOUR forgiveness, no matter HOW temporarily, will help me sleep better tonite. [;)]
