"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"

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."

You may even have read a borrowed copy of this book.
Eric C. Sanders
Vin is more than a theorist, though he is obviously a deep thinker; he knows we can be free again and his book ought to be read by everybody who cares.
Michael Morrison
While the flames at Waco have gone, the shame and the outrage of what was done there will burn forever.

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. :-)

21 of 22 people found the following review helpful By John J. Baeza on December 15, 2000
Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Vin Suprynowicz's "Send in the Waco Killers" provides a crystal clear defense of individual liberty. He details the benefits of freedom, and demonstrates how excess, anti-Constitutional government actually hurts us every day.
His chapter on subjecting politicians and law enforcers to a random and daily dose of one of our nation's currently illegal drugs ought to be required reading in every police academy. If our government is going to have the authority to decide what states of consciousness we are to be permitted to enjoy, then perhaps it would be poetic justice to subject those who create and enforce our morally, legally, and historically indefensible War on Drugs to states of consciousness not of THEIR choosing.
After all, in denying a drug user the ability to purchase and consume the drug of their choice, these same government agents are forcing that person into a state of consciousness that the drug user clearly would not prefer.
Like a white knight surrounded by the enemy, "Send in the Waco Killers" offers no compromise. It places the virtue of liberty before the reader and dares the reader to re-discover the joyous passion for freedom enjoyed by our founding fathers.
After reading this book, read your copy of our Constitution, and start wondering how our government gets away with destroying our nation.
Government is the problem. Freedom is the solution.
Freedom works, each and every time it is tried.
