Starting with the first chapter, Vin talks about where Americans have gone wrong since the founding fathers established the constitutional framework that suited the nation well for so many years. Juries are now "stacked" in an attempt to control the outcome of a trial; guns are confiscated in direct violation of the second amendment; people are sent to prison just because they choose to smoke a plant; and school children are indoctrinated to ensure that they are all slaves to the supreme command of the state, from now and into the future.
After commenting directly on the miserable failure of these various government policies, Vin describes countless examples of how government power has been used to manipulate individuals and destroy their lives. You can read all about hard working Americans who had their rights trampled on by government, like a man who saw his farm business wrecked by government officials who declared areas of his farm a wetland, and refused to allow him to farm on it, then refused to allow it to be used for other purposes either, making it worthless. Another true story covers a woman who was harassed by government because she refused to lie (yes, you heard me correctly) and disclose inaccurate ingredient listings on her company's pet foods.
Vin also talks about the government debacle at Waco and he gives sound reasons for why, he believes, the government is solely responsible for the deaths of the Branch Davidian members. He talks about the failed war on drugs, pointing out how government has used this disastrious policy to erode individual liberty.
Suprynowicz is a very outspoken person, and his in- your- face style might make some people uncomfortable. He frequently resorts to sarcasm and he provides countless examples of how government has ruined people's lives through its ruthlessness and its total failure to follow the constitution.
"Send in the Waco Killers" is well- written and easy to understand. Vin is a skilled wirter who knows exactly how to take an ordinarily complex situation and state it in a way that will make sense to most anyone. This book is one of the best I have read, and it was even recognized by freemarket.net as the "Freedom Book of the Year" in 1999. It's a book that everyone should read, just to see how far government has pushed its will on the people and how we, as a nation, are slowly marching toward a police state as each day passes.
Vin has has done something that I thought was impossible in a single book: he has nailed down exactly what is wrong. He has done us the greatest service by defining the problem in America today. And then he hammers it home with example after example. This is not a book about Waco (though Waco is a theme that runs through the book, since it was the most dramatic and pivotal example of government murder and tyranny in recent memory), it is a book that shows just how far we have allowed the hard-won freedoms and liberties we inherited get trampled upon in the 20th century.
My favorite example of how contemptuously _We The People_ are held by government is from the state I live in. The title of the book is derived from the incredible frustration and desperation of a North Carolinian man simply trying to live his life and get ahead (..."and tell That Woman to send her Waco killers."). This one story alone is worth reading the entire book. It is breath taking -- you just can't view the government the same anymore if you have any humanity or compassion for the American people.
On the other hand, if all you want are your material comforts and to "feel good" about life like any pinhead, then don't bother to read this book. Flip the TV on and keep your head in the sand. Or, if you hate the American people, don't read this book. You are already an active part of the problem and Vin has shown us your little game and just how nasty you little tyrants are. You will find that spotlight disquieting. :-)
This is a Must Read.
His chapter on subjecting politicians and law enforcers to a random and daily dose of one of our nation's currently illegal drugs ought to be required reading in every police academy. If our government is going to have the authority to decide what states of consciousness we are to be permitted to enjoy, then perhaps it would be poetic justice to subject those who create and enforce our morally, legally, and historically indefensible War on Drugs to states of consciousness not of THEIR choosing.
After all, in denying a drug user the ability to purchase and consume the drug of their choice, these same government agents are forcing that person into a state of consciousness that the drug user clearly would not prefer.
Like a white knight surrounded by the enemy, "Send in the Waco Killers" offers no compromise. It places the virtue of liberty before the reader and dares the reader to re-discover the joyous passion for freedom enjoyed by our founding fathers.
After reading this book, read your copy of our Constitution, and start wondering how our government gets away with destroying our nation.
Government is the problem. Freedom is the solution.
Freedom works, each and every time it is tried.
