I think he claims to be from Mich. to throw the feds off.
Yeah well after founding the "Order" coolwhip helped organize the militia in Michigan. LOL. Just kidding.
At least we have one good federal judge "A federal judge on Tuesday gutted the government’s case against seven members of a Michigan militia, dismissing the most serious charges in an extraordinary defeat for federal authorities who insisted they had captured homegrown rural extremists poised for war."
Thank heavens for some justice. “The judge had a lot of guts,” defense attorney William Swor said. “It would have been very easy to say, ‘The heck with it,’ and hand it off to the jury. But the fact is she looked at the evidence, and she looked at it very carefully.”
"I could have ended the war in a month. I could have made North Vietnam look like a mud puddle." "I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them." Barry Goldwater
