- a dying declaration - about an event that resulted in my life being ruined. This is my imprisonment for an attempt on the life of President Clinton in 1994. In truth I made no such attempt and I was convicted on the basis of lies told to the court by the U.S. Secret Service and an edited audiotape.
The man's name was Ronald Barbour and he wrote "The Freedom Fighter's Journal", and his last blog post was apparently his suicide note. It is called "The Ultimate Sacrifice".
I plan to make such a leap. I do this in memory of the several hundred victims on 9/11 who jumped off the World Trade Center as a means of avoiding burning to death, and the over 3,000 American soldiers killed fighting Islamofascism in Iraq and Afghanistan. A parallel reason is a protest against the American Left and the Democrat Party who have stabbed the Armed Forces in the back in the early stages of what is shaping up to be The Third World War.
He makes it clear that he does not consider it a suicide. He considers it an act of a "patriot idealist who loves God and Country, and who makes a very public statement as a warning of a New Dark Age that looks America straight in the face armed with a hideous ideology that makes the German Nazis or Russian Communists look like bleeding heart liberals......"
Despite his declaration that this was not a suicide and his claim that independent investigators would not see a troubled man suffering from depression, other bloggers have looked at his last writings and found that this was a man going through tough times.
