We Cannot Fight Tyranny When We Are Anonymous

Well, there you have it! A person writes a letter to the editor and complains about the federal regulatory oversight and in fear of retaliation they withhold their name. This is not a good sign.

Listen up folks: tyranny only works when YOU fear the government. The person that wrote that letter made some valid complaints which we have all experienced to some degree at one time or another. If you experience these frustrations with your examiner then you have a right to complain and if you fear reprisal or you are the target of a retaliatory act then contact your Senators and your Congressmen.

This is still a Representative Republic, and until that changes you put your John Hancock up there proudly for everyone to see.
