[COMMENT: The following is an email I just sent to my family. Some of it was a response to specific queries and comments by family members. See email below from Carl Braun, CA state MM leader. See pix and other commentary.
I will be spending 4-5 days down at Camp Vigilance on the Mexican border later this month, probably April . XX, the stats below, so far as I can tell, are accurate, and appalling that we allow this to go on. You implied in responding to YY a few weeks ago that you had better information. Is there a website where that is available?
None of these Minutemen folks are anti-immigration or anti-honest-immigrants. They are anti- lawbreakers, of which there is a gross over-representation among the illegal immigrants. Crossing the border is just for starters for many of them.
Chris Simcox, who founded and heads the MM, is a man with moral integrity. He has held the line on keeping the MM in order and reasonable and strictly within the law. Our job is to help the Border Patrol by being lookouts. And they are overwhelmingly appreciative.
If Bush had any integrity, he would be putting heavy pressure on Mexico to change its own ways so that there could be an honest sharing among the citizens of the great wealth of that nation. But neither he nor the Mexican leaders have any intention of doing that. That is because the globalist leaders behind the scenes here in the US of A and those in Mexico are of the same ilk. Top down control is their aim, not ordered freedom. The destruction of local government, of local people groups, of local control of our lives via "globalism" is a preparation for control from the top. That is what we are watching here in America. In both parties.
Example in Britain: See Magna Carta Libertatum at http://theroadtoemmaus.org/RdLb/21PbAr/Pl/WrldUN/MgnaCrtaLibert.htm The Magna Carta is getting the same treatment as our Constitution. We are steadily trashing our liberties because our comforts are soooo much more important. The homosexual advocates are one of the primary tools being used by the globalists, with Islam a close second, to destroy American culture, i.e, Biblical culture (what there is left). If this erosion of freedom continues, I predict another civil war.
An honest, healthy Biblical culture is the only culture which can sustain freedom. So-called "liberal democracy", which is neither liberal nor democratic, is the precursor to centralized control. It steadily erodes local culture by atomizing the population, and puts us under the thumb of unaccountable centralized government. As per Bush's misnamed "Patriot Act".
We just celebrated the resurrection of Jesus, King of kings and Lord of lords. There will be peace only when we willingly and responsibly choose Him for our own personal lives, and then for our public lives.
By the way, I am not against a global civilization. We do l live more and more in a "global village". But tyranny is not civilization -- even if we are persuaded to vote ourselves into it. (Bush et al are not waiting for the vote...) And if we do vote ourselves in, we will not be allowed to vote ourselves out. Civilization requires a cooperation of local communities which have learned to get along. The only way I know that that can happen is under a Biblical model of ordered freedom -- as per our (original) Constitution -- which was written to support an honest pluralism.
So I hope you all will find some way to stand up and support honest and responsible freedom under God. That is why I joined the Minutemen.
