"The principle that the majority have a right to rule the minority, practically resolves all government into a mere contest between two bodies of men, as to which of them shall be masters, and which of them slaves; a contest, that -- however bloody -- can, in the nature of things, never be finally closed, so long as man refuses to be a slave." ~ Lysander Spooner
I am an insatiable reader of non-fiction, mainly military and American history and the 'sciences'. I am a lifetime student of native plant life and am an herbologist of two decades now. I 'collect' 'Native American' artifacts and weaponry. I enjoy gardening, trout fishing, travel, and several forms of crafting. I am a dedicated 'activist' hoping to preserve the environment and culture of this region I am a small part of.
