MEDIA RELEASE: letter to Gov. Owens from the Hughes family.

Gov. Owens

I have been trying to teach my boys about the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. They get bored sometimes. But I have an obligation to teach them.

I decided to take my son to a gathering of people
that love the U.S. Constitution. We went to support
Rick Stanley. He was a libertarian candidate for
Congress in 2002

His life story to defend the Constitution ended in a
night mare.....He went out to a town that did not allow
people to carry an open gun (in plain site.) This
goes against the Colorado and the US Constitution.

He wanted to get arrested and to show the
government that they had to obey the Constitution.
He lost his case, Then he went to another town and
did the same thing. He was arrested again. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail. While he was in jail he wrote a letter to both judges that they did not have jurisdiction over him and that they had both broken their oath to obey and uphold both Constitutions, and that they cannot be above the law. He said that they were violating the law and subject to arrest for treason if they did not drop the charges on him.

Meanwhile the Colorado legislature with the help of
Gov. Owens told the towns that they could not violate
a persons right to carry a gun. They changed the law
and made it retroactive. BUT, BUTthey did not drop
the charges against Rick because he had sent a
letter to them and the judges said that
he was trying to tamper with the court. So they
him with that and he is now looking at years and years
in prison.

While he was out on bond. His probation said that he
could not carry a gun until his appeals and court
proceedings where done. The swat team, FBI, IRS, Jefferson county police, Adams county police, city police, state patrol, there were over 50 cops that raided his home/business. They took everything that he needed to run his business like bills, invoices, money, computers, disks, files, phones etc. etc.

They 1- wanted to start a confrontation by going in with
over 50 officers. 2- wanted to find a gun so that they
could charge him with violating his probation. 3-destroy
his ability to earn a living by taking his papers that he needed for his business. 4-destroy his reputation by taking his bills, so that he couldn't pay his bills. 5-take his money so he couldn't pay his legal bills. 6-they intimidated his employees and all but 1 quit. 7-cause undo stress for him and his family. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THEY WANTED TOTAL CONTROL. THEY WANTED HIM TO KNOW WHO IS THE BOSS.

When we were at the rally in front of the court house,
on his first day of court. We were holding signs and
showing support for the Colorado Constitution and
the 2nd Amendment.

We were a crowd of old, young, men,
women, grandparents, sisters, handicapped, poor,
and rich.

This is why I/we went. To show the courts that there
are people that are willing to stand up for freedom.
And to show these judges that we support the
Constitution. And we will not loose or give up our

I don't think Rick Stanley should be put in a hole
(prison) for defending the U.S. Constitution.

Commitment (Revised)

My post on Courage got lots of feedback. Thank you. It is nice to get an idea of what the reader likes and doesn't like. The biggest question (or objection)that I am hearing from folks who want to move west is that they are concerned about an income or housing.
It is my opinion that as long as you allow your fear of the unknown to control you, you will never be in a position to move.
Instead of worrying about the details, I suggest that you begin planning. Make a goal. A goal must be realistic and it must have a date. A goal must also be something that you can control. (You can have a goal to move to Wyoming in August of 2006, but you can't have a goal to fall in love and get married.)
Once you have written down your goals, study them. Make sure that they are realistic. Make your goals positive statements. Don't make negative words or phrases part of your goal statement. Read your goals every morning and evening. Visualize yourself accomplishing your goals. Associate with the people who can help you accomplish your goals. Do any study required to accomplish those goals. For instance, if your goal is to become a realtor within 12 months, you should get into a class right away and schedule the exam. You should also begin associating with people in that industry. Read books that will make you more effective.
Finally, once you have made your goals, make a commitment to yourself and share it with anyone else that your decision impacts. Commit to yourself that you WILL move to Wyoming by X date. Once you have committed in your mind and believe it to be so - it WILL be so.

Let me share something with you that my sister found for me after my bicycle trip. She painted this on a manuscript for me 22 years ago. I read it every day and it has never failed me.

UNTIL ONE IS COMMITTED THERE IS HESITANCY, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative and creation there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:
that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves, too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. WHATEVER YOU CAN DO OR DREAM YOU CAN DO, BEGIN IT. Boldness and genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.

And here is another quote that a friend just sent me:
"We are continually faced with great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems." ( One of my very favorites..I love the two sided image of it!)
