Introduction I am a Preemptive Offender. I am here to do two things: 1. Piss off statists. 2. Encourage freedom advocates. I have become convinced that at this time in American history, there is no point in civility. There's a war going on between lovers of liberty and those who would stifle us. We won't win it with wiffle bats and Nerf guns. To those who dislike what they read here: Tough Shit. I'm so much smarter than you that a Martian looking at the two of us would assume you're a domesticated animal, or perhaps an unusually mobile houseplant. Besides, this is the World Wide Web. Grow up and stop assuming everyone here will agree with you. Prepare to be offended.
