Do people understand our system of government? I ask myself this question all the time. And more often than not, the answer is “NO”.
I mentioned to a co-worker of mine that a man was arrested for 30 days for taking 6 seconds to sit down in court. His reply was, “Don't piss off the Judge; the Judge is the law, they can arrest you for contempt for any reason, no one can check them!” To which I replied “That's the problem.”
Judges believe they are the law.
I challenge anyone to show me a law that requires me to take less than 6 seconds to sit down in court.
I challenge anyone to show me where the Constitution validly gives Congress the authority to tax my personal income as if every penny were profit.
I challenge anyone to show me where the Constitution validly gives Congress the authority to give stolen (tax) money to private businesses.
I can, however, show that 56.14% of Federal Government spending is unconstitutional (page 22 of [link edited for length] )
I can show that we have a right to be free from oppressive government:
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government“
These words are not from an archaic book about self-government, these words are not from some “radical fringe group” that wishes to overthrow the government. No, these words come from arguably the greatest document ever written; “The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America”.
I, and so many others like me, believe that ALL men are and of right out to be free and sovereign people.
I do not need a government to keep me from harming my neighbor; I only need the understanding that I do not have the right to initiate force against him.
The sooner people realize that our government is crossing the line and not playing by the rules (the Constitution), the sooner we the people will demand a change. My only fear is that people may demand a change towards slavery and oppression, instead of towards LIBERTY & JUSTICE!Tweet
