There has been a state generated coup to cause a reversal of function for the state and the people they should serve. The rights and the property of the people are infinitely more important than the power intended to preserve the people. But that idea has been cast aside in favour of state power and secrecy. If the rcmp had been justified in their actions at High River, they would be loudly singing their own praise, along with every left wing printing press in the nation. However, such is not the case.

How can we trust both the RCMP and the Government with not only our security but economy, health and other important portfolios.
