Some day historians will look back on our time and determine that the actions of Tim McVeigh, disasterious though they were, was a turning point that put a stop to the Clinton administrations use of the ATF as a Nazi type of effort to punish and control the people as they did in Idaho and Texas. They will, also, determine that he did not get a fair trial and may link the Clinton administrastion as a co-conspirator because McVeigh would not have done what he did if the Clinton administration had not done what they did to kill all those people at the Branch Dividian.

Let’s start with a shocking, but true premise: If you are a patriotic American, you believe that there are circumstances under which it is right to take up arms against your own government. That statement feels wrong to me. It reeks of militia and McVeigh and toothless loons holed up with guns in cabins in order to avoid paying income taxes.

But the fact remains that the rationale for the existence of the nation known as the United States of America, which first appeared in print 236 years ago today, is entirely dependent on the premise...
