We are all slaves under the system. Everywhere you turn, there is a government agency or entity that is trying to exert control over you to compel a certain action. This is evidenced by the fact that more and more government agencies now have the power to kill you.

Our government exists for one reason and one reason only: to suck as much hard earned money out of American taxpayers so it can be redistributed to others. And to accomplish this, government agencies are revealing a glaring truth of what has become acceptable brutality.

There is only one reason for government agencies to arm themselves to the teeth and that is to control the population.

That is why local police departments are receiving machine guns, armored vehicles, and even grenade launchers from Pentagon. That is why the EPA, IRS, Post Office, Department of Education, the Bureau of Land Management, and practically every other non-law enforcement department are arming themselves to the teeth.

They’re not buying M16 rifles and millions of rounds of hollow-point ammunition because they want to “protect and serve.” Government agencies claim that the hollow-point ammunition is for target practice, but this ammunition only has one purpose: to expand on impact with flesh!

Whether we are talking about local police forces arming themselves to the teeth or the militarization of non-law enforcement Federal departments, the fact remains that government is arming itself at an alarming rate.

When confronted with the fact that his police department was receiving an armored personnel carrier from the Pentagon, one New York police chief responded that such a vehicle was necessary to protect officers from civilians’ high-powered hunting rifles…

Think about that for a second… this is a startling admission because it shows that these military technologies are not to defend against al-Qaeda, but to be used against the American people!

Tell Congress to pass H.R. 4934, the Regulatory Agency Demilitarization Act, and STOP these Federal agencies from arming themselves to fight the American people!

Perhaps you don’t think there is anything wrong with local police departments and government agencies arming themselves to the teeth. Without a doubt, the police need certain tools to do their job. Likewise, no one doubts that there are some Federal agencies that also need police equipment. But how can anyone argue that non-law enforcement agencies like the Department of Education need the same hardware afforded to our military personnel in war zones?

So far this year, more than 200 police departments around the country have already received a $500k Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle (MRAP) equipped with a top-mounted machine gun turret. Another 700 other police departments have also requested these MRAPs once they become available after the full withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Universities are receiving these armored vehicles as well so they can provide a “police presence” on campus during game days. Do they need to worry about high-powered hunting rifles as well? How about we just admit that these vehicles are meant for one purpose: enslavement.

We have become slaves to police, national security organizations, activist judges, unchecked regulatory agencies, you name it…

And the proof is in the pudding because one of the key signs of our enslavement is the belief that there is nothing we can do about it.

That is why small town sheriffs are applying to receive armored personnel carriers… to prove to us that resistance is futile and there is nothing we can do.

I agree that there is nothing that slaves can do to break this system… but luckily, we are not slaves. We are freemen and women and we have the power to change the course of our government!

Our enslavement is not defined by what government does to us. Nay, our enslavement is determined by our willingness to just accept our fate!

Why is it that our leadership can fail us, persecute us, prosecute us, kill us, stand on us, and subjugate us all while getting away with it?

It is easy to feel hopeless. It is easy to look at the sheer size of government and become depressed by the fact that many agencies exist solely to target law-abiding Americans. But if we allow the size of government to dismay us, we will remain under its iron fist.

That is why it is so important for us to urge Congress to pass H.R. 4934, the Regulatory Agency Demilitarization Act. This is a simple bill that would immediately force all non-law enforcement agencies within the Federal government to stop all militarization efforts. And instead of giving the EPA and IRS free reign to arm themselves to the teeth, the legislation would force all government agencies to seek approval from Congress before purchasing arms and ammunition.

This would ensure that only law enforcement agencies would have access to these weapons of war.

This isn’t just a bill… this is the American people’s emancipation proclamation. We demand to be emancipated from the system of control that government agencies have created.

We must STOP these agencies from arming themselves for the expressed purpose of going to war against the American people! No more shall we have an FDA and EPA that uses SWAT teams to raid farms for violating obscure regulations… no more shall we have a Bureau of Land Management that uses the threat of force to extort money out of American cattle ranchers… no longer shall we have a Department of Education that buys machineguns alongside textbooks!

Join me in putting Congress on notice! Either our representatives put an end to the militarization of government agencies or we will throw them out of office! It really is that simple.

As long as the Federal government is legally allowed to arm itself against the American people, the propensity for tyranny will remain!

Tell Congress to pass H.R. 4934, the Regulatory Agency Demilitarization Act, and STOP these Federal agencies from arming themselves to fight the American people!
