They sped down the lane toward the barn. In a cloud of dust, thirteen of them poured out of their squad cars, armed to the teeth. Their target had no idea what was coming. Brandishing weapons and a warrant acquired after aerial photos were taken that clearly showed the criminals in action, they staged their attack in a shady picnic area and then conducted their raid. A few minutes later, out they came officers from multiple agencies, one of them carrying the lifeless body of the criminal in a black bag…
A tiny baby deer the rehabilitation center had named Giggles, because it sounded like laughter when it whinnied. It was scheduled to be released alive into a wildlife sanctuary the next day. It’s illegal to own wild deer in Wisconsin. Aerial surveillance. An affidavit. A search warrant. Thirteen SWAT style cops. One baby deer.
Forget about the wasted taxpayer dollars the operation cost…
What the hell are we doing raiding no-kill animal shelters with armed agents?
And why the hell can’t we raid banks the same way — for things much more criminal than saving a baby deer?
Yep.. this is Australia. Nice to see you still have a great sense of humor left in you Julian. We are all rooting for you mate.
A good friend of mine is raising funds for a most urgent project. So now the time has come for all good folks to dig deep into their pockets to help get this project of the ground… Many rewards are to be had … above all, your input may save many innocent lives from being targeted by these freaks of nature…
Thanking you all in advance
Libertarians support ethical and political ideas that are the foundation of America’s great experiment in tolerance and liberty. Libertarianism respects individual differences. It values personal responsibility. It values cooperation over coercion. It values independent thought and private decision making.
Libertarians cherish the American heritage of liberty, personal responsibility and respect for the rights of others. Americans built a society of abundance and opportunity with these ideas. Libertarians recognize the responsibility we all share to preserve this precious heritage.
Libertarians believe that you deserve to live a free and independent life in a system that lets you live, love, work, play and dream your own way, at your own pace, however you wish and with whomever you wish, accepting whatever consequences come.
Libertarians believe each individual is unique. They respect each special individual and encourage all to discover the best within. They support a system that allows each of us to realize our full potential; a system that encourages harmonious relationships.
The Libertarian way is logically consistent, based on the moral principle of self-ownership. All Libertarian positions comport with the idea that each individual has the right to control his or her own body, action, speech and property.
