Editorial Reviews

Review

"Suprynowicz has given us the lyrics to freedom's song. It is up to us to make the music." -- Bill Branon, author of "Let Us Prey" (a New York Times Notable Book of the Year), "Devil's Hole," "Timesong," and "Spider Snatch"

"This volume is the seminal work of the last five decades. It will change lives. It will direct nations." -- Bill Branon, author of "Let Us Prey" (a New York Times Notable Book of the Year), "Devil's Hole," "Timesong," and "Spider Snatch"

About the Author

Vin Suprynowicz grew up in a nice, Politically Correct Democratic family, fine folks who taught him that it was wrong to steal or hate people for being different from them. He still feels that way, but has since expanded the list of those deserving such tolerance from merely homosexuals and members of racial minorities to also include machine-gun owners; militiamen; folks who choose to vote their conscience in the jury room in defiance of the judge's instructions; who use intoxicants other than those approved by the current government; who decline to vaccinate their children or turn them over for government indoctrination; or who decline to contribute any portion of their earnings to support the welfare/police state.

He landed his first newspaper job at the alternative Hartford Advocate in 1972 after graduating from Wesleyan University. He went on to become the star reporter at the daily Willimantic Chronicle, news editor of the Norwich Bulletin, managing editor of the daily Northern Virginia Sun, and founder and publisher of the weekly Providence Eagle. Suprynowicz was named three times to the Golden Dozen (the top 12 weekly editorial writers in the U.S. and Canada) by the International Society of Weekly Newspaper Editors.

A resident of Las Vegas, he's now an editor, editorial writer and weekly columnist at the daily Las Vegas Review-Journal. In wide demand as a dinner speaker at Libertarian and gun-rights gatherings throughout the U.S. and western Canada, he also pens a twice-a-week column appearing in 20 or so newspapers around the country, and publishes the monthly newsletter "Vin Suprynowicz's Privacy Alert."

More About the Author

Deep in the Nevada desert, in a hidden mansion full of old books and vintage clothes, guarded by five anthropomorphic cats and a family of Attack Roadrunners, Vin Suprynowicz went cold turkey from a 40-year newspaper career. They said he'd never write anything over a thousand words, again. But with the help and encouragement of the Brunette and a few close friends, he came back. With "The Testament of James" -- about the modern-day search for a lost book revealing the long-suppressed secret of Jesus and the manna -- he proved them wrong.

Now comes the second drug-enhanced adventure of Matthew Hunter and Chantal Stevens. "The Miskatonic Manuscript" asks the question that victims of the Drug War have been waiting a hundred years to hear: "What if they fought a War on Drugs . . . and someone fought back?

The bibliomysteries of Matthew Hunter and Chantal Stevens are based in the used bookstore "Books on Benefit," in H.P. Lovecraft's Providence, Rhode Island. Vin edited and published the weekly Providence Eagle from 1980-1985.

He began his writing career with the alternative weekly Hartford Advocate (writing part-time and driving the delivery truck at night), eventually giving up honest work entirely to become an award-winning reporter for the daily Willimantic Chronicle, news editor of the daily Norwich Bulletin, and managing editor of the daily Northern Virginia Sun.

Vin worked on the Las Vegas Review Journal Opinion section, winning numerous industry awards, through the great Las Vegas boom. He rode it a bit further into the ground than Tom Mitchell, finally exiting in 2013. For the past six years, he has sold vintage and collectible books online at www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?sortby=0&vci=51238921 and in the Charleston Antique Mall, Las Vegas (where the Brunette handles the vintage clothes) as "Cat's Curiosities."

In an earlier life, Vin (Eaglebrook '65, E.O. Smith '68, Wesleyan '72) published two collections of his daily Libertarian newspaper columns, "Send in the Waco Killers" and "The Ballad of Carl Drega," and the freedom novel "The Black Arrow." He continues to write his monthly Libertarian column on the politics of gun control for Shotgun News.

The latest lengthy interview with Vin about his writing was posted by Claire Wolfe at her blog at Backwoods Home magazine on Sunday Jan. 4 and Monday, Jan. 5, 2015. The second half is probably the better; try www.backwoodshome.com/blogs/ClaireWolfe/2015/01/05/ .

Format: Paperback
Author and journalist Vin Suprynowicz has something to say about the political climate in the United States. He doesn't like the government's excesses of control, the lying, the manipulation, and the almost complete disregard for the constitution. A strong proponent of individual liberty and personal responsibility, Vin covers many topics in this book that relate to government run amok, all with an inspired fervor and a very Libertarian angle.
Starting with the first chapter, Vin talks about where Americans have gone wrong since the founding fathers established the constitutional framework that suited the nation well for so many years. Juries are now "stacked" in an attempt to control the outcome of a trial; guns are confiscated in direct violation of the second amendment; people are sent to prison just because they choose to smoke a plant; and school children are indoctrinated to ensure that they are all slaves to the supreme command of the state, from now and into the future.
After commenting directly on the miserable failure of these various government policies, Vin describes countless examples of how government power has been used to manipulate individuals and destroy their lives. You can read all about hard working Americans who had their rights trampled on by government, like a man who saw his farm business wrecked by government officials who declared areas of his farm a wetland, and refused to allow him to farm on it, then refused to allow it to be used for other purposes either, making it worthless. Another true story covers a woman who was harassed by government because she refused to lie (yes, you heard me correctly) and disclose inaccurate ingredient listings on her company's pet foods.

Heck, I thought I was a die-hard libertarian, "right-wing-extremist", gun owner who knew it all. Then I read this book and my eyes, which were pretty well wide open already, were really opened.
Vin has has done something that I thought was impossible in a single book: he has nailed down exactly what is wrong. He has done us the greatest service by defining the problem in America today. And then he hammers it home with example after example. This is not a book about Waco (though Waco is a theme that runs through the book, since it was the most dramatic and pivotal example of government murder and tyranny in recent memory), it is a book that shows just how far we have allowed the hard-won freedoms and liberties we inherited get trampled upon in the 20th century.
My favorite example of how contemptuously _We The People_ are held by government is from the state I live in. The title of the book is derived from the incredible frustration and desperation of a North Carolinian man simply trying to live his life and get ahead (..."and tell That Woman to send her Waco killers."). This one story alone is worth reading the entire book. It is breath taking -- you just can't view the government the same anymore if you have any humanity or compassion for the American people.
On the other hand, if all you want are your material comforts and to "feel good" about life like any pinhead, then don't bother to read this book. Flip the TV on and keep your head in the sand. Or, if you hate the American people, don't read this book. You are already an active part of the problem and Vin has shown us your little game and just how nasty you little tyrants are. You will find that spotlight disquieting. :-)

Vin Suprynowicz is a real American hero who reminds us of the way it used to be when some other American heroes graced this earth-you know-Washington, Madison, Jefferson, Henry, Franklin and Mason. He pulls no punches and tells it like it is. He supports all of his arguments very well with some funny things called-facts. As a retired detective I found what Vin wrote about law enfocement (the feds in particular) to be extremely accurate (and some of the law enforcement responses to his published articles have made me embarassed to be associated with that field). If I was to suggest one book to read about freedom-and how important it is not to lose it (or surrender it) completely-I would suggest this book. No hesitation. Vin's print articles have changed the way I think about many issues-including politics and liberty. He is one of those rare individuals who can write something that stirs the emotions. His writing has not only changed my thinking, it has moved me emotionally. But don't take my word for it. Read the book for yourself. If you are a critical thinker, this volume may transform your entire way of thinking, and therefore, your life. It may also help us to regain our freedoms. And without freedom, we are all slaves. Thanks Vin.

I was originally turned off by the title of the book. However, it had been recomended to me by a friend. I have to say that it turned out to be the most thoughtful, well reasoned, documented accounting of just how far out of control the Federal Government has gotten over the years that I have ever read. The point is driven home over and over again in this book that every Constitutional protection you thought you had can be abused, with no consequences, by the Federal Government. Think the money you worked hard for all you life is yours? Think again. Federal police, with local police support can seize it and any other property they covet with impunity. And the cop that takes it gets to profit in the transaction. Think you have a right to a trial by a jury of your peers? Wrong again. Jury picking has become an art, designed to eliminate anyone who may be sympathetic to your views. Think the Constitutional guarantee in the 2nd amendment means what it says? Well, you are probably breaking one of the 20,000 gun laws already in affect, directed against honest Americans like you and I, and don't even know it. And if you are caught by one of these "Special Militia" ( ATF, DEA, FBI that we were warned against over and over by the founding fathers) you will spend more time in jail than a bank robber. Think you cannot be murdered by the Federal Police without justice being done to the ones who murdered you or your family members? You are living in a dream world. This book should be required reading by every 9th grade civics class in America. But of course, as is pointed out in this book, these "Government Schools" will do everything in its power to ensure that your children will NOT understand the true meaning of our Constitution.
This is a Must Read.
