Copperhead: mean, swift, venomous and silent, it gives no warning before striking and will pursue you once disturbed, until you are gone or it is dead.
Most Patriots are familiar with the rattlesnake symbol on the Gadsden Flag--'Don't Tread on Me.'
Rattlesnakes in the fight for liberty are most important. But as Mike Vanderboegh writes, there is more than one kind of snake in the woods. Copperheads in particular are around and about as well:
The value of the copperhead is that nobody on the side of tyranny has any idea of who among the citizenry are the copperheads or where they lurk silently, waiting.
This I know. I have no doubt that should the domestic enemies of the Constitution make their final, bloody move, many will be terminally surprised by how many copperheads -- human, informed, intelligent copperheads -- will pursue them silently and remorselessly until they are dead and their malignant collectivist revolution against the Founders' Republic is consigned to the dustbin of history.
