Guest Column: Government: The real wolf at our doors
9/8/2013 6:00:00 AM
It is almost funny, if it was not so serious, to read in the Kingman Daily Miner comments and letters to the editor from people in other states, most of them living in big cities, telling us what we should be doing in Arizona and in our rural Mohave County regarding the re-introduction of the Mexican gray wolves.
I have four words for you: Mind your own business.
I personally, like many of the people who live in the rural part of Mohave County, am not afraid of the wolves, like we are not afraid of any other wild animal if we are allowed to use our basic natural rights of self-defense and defense of property. That includes our domestic animals that are for many part of our family and way of life.
What I am afraid of is the federal government taking more control of our lives under the excuse of the "wolves" or any wild animal under the Endangered Species Act.
Are you aware that you cannot kill a wolf protected by the Endangered Species Act in almost any circumstance? You are deprived of your basic individual constitutional right of protection of private property, facing the threat of a $100,000 fine and mandatory prison sentence for killing an endangered wolf killing one's livestock?
Imagine if that was your dog, your cat, or your cattle - that means your bread and butter.
If you live in the city, please think for a moment and put yourself in our shoes. We live in the country and off the land. Many of us have a ranch or farm, already overregulated by the FDA, EPA and other unconstitutional federal agencies.
Now, on our private property, we are surrounded by a new predator, released intentionally by the federal government and protected under the Endangered Species Act. That means, in plain English, that we cannot protect our animals (that means my livelihood) and our property. Our land will be worthless. We must keep paying property taxes that soon we cannot afford anymore.
Our two options are: Sell for pennies on the dollar and move to a city, or fight back and stand the line.
I opt for No. 2.
All this wonderful feel-good, eco-green fascism is happening because of the implementation of the Agenda 21 under the socialistic United Nations. Under this treaty, their goal is to relocate humanity to big cities and control all the natural resources, making it impossible for private citizens to own property. Simple as that.
If you see the map of Agenda 21 (please Google it), Mohave County is stuck in the middle of it.
The only hope we have is to educate each other about these issues. Only after enough individuals in our community, led by our state and county representatives and our sheriff, are aware of the real motivation of these federal impositions will we be able to reach a critical mass and stand against these federal thugs and stop them at our county's and state's gate.
It is not about the wolves. It is about federal control over our state, county and private property.
It is about global government and the loss of our sovereignty.
