Summum ius summa iniuria--More law, less justice

Quote of the Day 1/5

"Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion
of the day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished
period, and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers
(adminstrators) too plainly proves a deliberate, systematic plan
of reducing us to slavery."

Thomas Jefferson


  1. "too plainly proves a deliberate, systematic plan
    of reducing us to slavery"

    If every voter in this nation votes to place one person into slavery, resistance is justified.

    Our rights are not contingent upon a majority vote, whether of the people or of the Congress.



  2. Amen.

    Resistance has been justified by that standard from (pick your date)

    1. 1798 Alien and Sedition Acts
    2. Embargo Acts of Jefferson and Madison Administrations
    3. 1820s - 1830's tariff disputes
    4. 1860-61
    5. Teddy Roosevelt's overuse of the Executive Order
    6. 1913 Federal Reserve
    7. 1971 Nixon takes us off the gold standard (or 1964 silver removed from coinage)
    8. 2005 Patriot Act
    9. 2007 bust caused by Fed monetary policy, followed by dollar devaluation to beat all devaluation, impoverishing anyone trying to save for retirement.
    10. Obamacare mandating purchase of health insurance

    too many other examples to count...
