The power of III

Summum ius summa iniuria--More law, less justice

16 February 2011

Are we still sovereign over our lives, or now subjects?

If the current United States cannot be politically reformed within the current system, as the Tea Party hopes, can the South, or the South and West (red states), separate and form a new Confederation of States, leaving the current forced National entity?  

Your school teachers, college professors, journalists, and "mainstream" politicians will tell you: "No! The Civil War ended all of that.  It is dead and buried.  Get over it..." or words to that effect.

Does that make sense when the reasons to nullify, and when necessary, secede, are compelling and even urgent?  Of course not.

If the winning side in a war said the Moon was made of cheese instead of rock and dust, it wouldn't alter the facts.  Eventually, the truth will cause someone to stand up and declare that the moon is made of rock and dust.   

Since 1865, our public schools have been teaching us that the moon is made of cheese. 

A government that was oppressive and heavy handed to white Southerners since 1865 has now become oppressive and heavy handed to all tax payers (and the left should be very pleased with how equal we all have become:  we are all being economically raped by the federal government regardless of race, sex, creed, religion, or sexual orientation).  Every year our salaries remain the same, our dollar purchases less, and the government obligates us to more collective debt.
My ancestors came here to be left alone and take care of themselves.  They came because there was no lord or master to limit their opportunities.
I want no different for myself and my family.  

If the government, by their laws, wants to confiscate property and give it to other people who didn't earn it, the government is unjust.  If they consciously or unconsciously destroy any chance I have to be prosperous, are they not as bad, or worse than George III and Lord North?

I want my Natural rights to life, liberty, and property protected by my government.  That is the only proper mandate that government has, if the government is truly "of the people, by the people, and for the people." (Lying bastard Lincoln) 

If the government doesn't protect those rights, of what purpose is government?

Are we free or aren't we? Do we rule, as per our Founders rhetoric, or have we become slaves of an oligarchy?
The cynical would contend that the people have always been subjects in this country, and that our so-called sovereignty has always been an illusion.  

This may be true, but in addressing the situation that confronts our generation, I hold that we have become slaves.  
We are slaves to those who tax us, 
We are slaves to those individuals in this country to whom the nanny state caters (Giving charity is voluntary individual choice vs. supporting welfare by confiscated wealth) 
We are slaves to those industries and private businesses subsidized by government funds and financial slight of hand.  
We are slaves to the whims of a nonrepresentative unconstitutional national legislature ("Are you serious? Are you serious?").
We are slaves to the Federal Reserve, that steals and counterfeits our wealth and our children's inheritance with impunity.
We are slaves to unimaginable unauthorized collective debt incurred by our National government.

So now must fall back on the words of Thomas Jefferson, for we have no other choice:

"...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."
