SWACer Yankee Phil wins "Defender of the Month" award

The Second Amendment was not written for hunters, or target shooters. It was written for responsible people to protect their country, their community, their family, and themselves. It was written so free people can remain free.

Everyone knows Patrick Henry’s famous line, "Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?...I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

What is less known, and maybe more importantly, he stated, "Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel."
That was part of a column written by Phil Lynch at Yankee Phil in the November 27, 2007, Staunton News Leader. John Snyder, the Public Affairs Director for the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, saw the column in the online edition of the NL and nominated Phil for their monthly award.

Phil won the group's January "Defender of the Month" award and, as a former police officer, he definitely deserves it. Our congratulations to Phil.

Here is a plug for McCain.........
Even though he was behind McCain -Feingold, even though he was behind McCain-Kennedy, even though he was behind McCain-Lieberman, even though he voted against the Bush tax cuts, even though he joined the gang of 14 with democrats...... (Here is the plug)

I truly respect his service to this country. He is a great warrior.He is a great man. He is a model for any soldier. I would vote for him in a heartbeat........................................................................................... for Secretary of Defense. For President, we need a real Republican.
