Governmental Absorption of Freedom

Words of Warning is an essay written by Jim Sheperd for Outdoor Wire dealing with our government's insidious absorption of our personal freedoms. In this case, specifically, the freedom to travel.
This is just another example of why I believe in the Second Amendmentwhich reads:

Text of the 2nd Amendment

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

I'll admit, being raised without firearm exposure, I didn't understand the need for citizens to possess their own weapons for self defense. And now, after 9-11, and the dramatic change in our status as American citizens who constantly need to prove who we are in order to get a job, open a bank account, get insurance, and travel to Canada and Mexico, I begin to wonder how we can survive without them.
In End of Daysthe first book of the River Survival Series,we learn how the survivors of a post grid collapse were violently stripped of the weapons. As the series progresses, we see how the government, having instated Martial Law can move against their citizens with impunity. Of course, this fictional work has its heroes, and the ARM, or American Resistance Movement is born. It's not an easy road putting one's passionate beliefs into a fictional format, where the imagination couples with hard reality. I've been on this road awhile.
 As part of the on going journey, I've re-edited the The River Survival Series to remove the typos my first reviewer complained about and I'm still striving to create memorable book covers.
Bottom line, I'm passionate about our rights, both as American citizens and human beings. I'm passionate about learning all the skills necessary to survive any catastrophe, in spite of, and due to, governmental interference.

A Navy Vet...VT town reviewed the fourth book No Storm Like This :

The Federal troops are mobilizing while the American Resistance Movement declares war. Jimmy needs help from Apache when he goes off the deep end. The journey that Apache takes is 250 miles up the river and an arduous trip.

The inhabitants of Rivertown decide they must make a "safe haven" miles away. They are anticipating the day the Feds will try to take their town over. The Patrols in their town continue on even in the dead cold of winter.

Carla and Apache also go to war near St. Paul and discover a traitor in their midst. As a team, Carla and Apache are quite the experts in demolition. Carla still has her uncanny communication with the wolves - especially Jesus..

This is a poignant story of the power of love, the tragedy of war and the fragile nature of the human spirit.

Highly recommended
