DEAR PATRIOTS: Thank you for your brave service to our country, which includes—but is not limited to—arming yourself to the teeth and taking over a federal bird refuge. (That'll stick it to Obama!) To celebrate the conclusion of your 41-day standoff, we'd like to remind ALL Americans that patriots need love, too! That's why we're proud to share these limited edition "Oregon Standoff Valentines" that you can print, cut out, and send to other brave lovesick militia members... just like you! Why are we doing this, you ask? Because, Valentine... we love God, America, and YOU (in that order). HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

(Got your own "Oregon Standoff " quotes that would look nice on a valentine? Tweet them to @portlandmercury and add #MilitiaValentines.)
