    I am watching the FOX show on the Ruby Ridge incident, or rather, tragedy. I never understood what happened. What little I did hear on the news, mostly because I wasn’t paying much attention at the time, was negative about the Weavers. Now I am horrified at how it all played out. And, it was started by the U.S. Gov entrapping Weaver into selling a gun. And, then, the Gov really lost it. SMH

        It started with the 14 yr old son shooting back when a gov guy shot the dog away from the house, and the kid evidently shot and killed the gov guy. The 14 yr old was shot and killed. Then the gov went nuts because one of their was killed. Then, a gov sniper shot at Randy (he wasn’t doing anything at the time) and hit him and he and his daughter ran back to the house where the mother, holding the bay in her arms, was shot and killed instantly by the sniper.

        This is in that Wikipedia article, but none of it was discussed in the program. I think it is pretty pertinent information. The Weavers did not have a telephone. And, the letter that did get through had the wrong court date on it.

        “On February 5, the trial date was changed from February 19 to 20 to give participants more travel time following a federal holiday. The court clerk sent a letter to the parties informing them of the date change, but the notice was not sent directly to Weaver, only to his attorney. On February 7, the probation officer sent Weaver a letter indicating that he now had the case file and needed to talk with Weaver. This letter erroneously indicated that Weaver’s trial date was set for March 20.[30][31] On February 8, Hofmeister again attempted to contact Weaver by letter informing him that the trial was to begin on February 20 and that Weaver needed to contact him immediately. Hofmeister also made several calls to individuals who knew Weaver asking them to have Weaver call him. Hofmeister told U.S. District Court Judge Harold Ryan he did not hear from Weaver before the scheduled court date.[32]”

        “When Weaver did not appear in court on February 20, Judge Ryan issued a bench warrant for failure to appear in court.[31][33] On February 26, Ken Keller, a reporter for the Kootenai Valley Times, telephoned the U.S. Probation Office and asked whether the reason that Weaver did not show in court on February 20 was that the letter sent to him by Richins had the incorrect date.[34] Upon finding a copy of the letter, the Chief Probation Officer, Terrence Hummel, contacted Judge Ryan’s clerk and informed them of the incorrect date in the letter. Hummel also contacted the U.S. Marshals Service and Weaver’s attorney informing them of the error. The judge, however, refused to withdraw the bench warrant.[34”

        Yes, after this, there was Waco, and the situation in Texas where the bikers were shot. I think that was a set up, too. For what, I don’t know. But, I am pretty pissed at what goes on in Washington D.C. and what they get away with. After all that went on at Ruby Ridge, Randy Weaver never fired any shots back at anybody.

    Why We Are a Republic, Not a Democracy

    Walter Williams lays it all out.

    Those Americans obsessed with rule by popular majorities might want to get rid of the Senate, where states, regardless of population, have two senators.

    Should we change representation in the House of Representatives to a system of proportional representation and eliminate the guarantee that each state gets at least one representative?

    Currently, seven states with populations of 1 million or fewer have one representative, thus giving them disproportionate influence in Congress.

    While weโ€™re at it, should we make all congressional acts by majority rule? When weโ€™re finished with establishing majority rule in Congress, should we then move to change our court system, which requires unanimity in jury decisions, to a simple majority rule?

    My question is: Is it ignorance of or contempt for our Constitution that fuels the movement to abolish the Electoral College?
