Seeking Qualified Jurists for Testing….. The understanding of the intent of the U.S. Constitution, how to research case law and an overall knowledge of the law and legal system are highly desired attributes.
How grand of them to give us back our right to use the herb cannabis, they usurped eighty years ago, on October 2, 1937, House Bill 6385: The Marihuana Tax Act. Yet a large group of politicians still voted against it. Only 5 Republicans voted for it and 6 Democrats voted against the bill to decriminalize a naturally occurring herb that people have utilized for thousands of years, coincidentally during a period when many Marxists were, just so happened to be, infiltrating our government. Sadly, some are saying, it is “unlikely” to pass the Senate.
Think of our Constitution as our foundational rule of law, yet we have allowed it to be “unlawfully” abrogated to such a very high degree that many are making a strong case that we are no longer a lawfully constituted Republic. If true, is there a way to restore our society?
Are there viable solutions, has been the long-standing question and it appears playing in the arenas they control, the courts and legislatures, have been extremely futile. They surely are not going to ask somebody like me to be the Secretary of the Treasury, that’s reserved for the wealthy banking and investment interests. They obviously need the revenue or they wouldn’t be reinstating this right.
Qualified Immunity is one of the major problems. Even when a government employee or official usurps somebody’s rights, they have commandeered the Courts and they most often eliminate any liability. Even Big Pharma is exempted from liability through the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program that has already paid out over $4.4 billion, so far, in claims. Most people don’t know about this, so they would not even know to make a claim.
The Constitution clearly states, that those that break their Oaths to support, protect and defend the Constitution, “shall Not Hold Office” and many in both major political Parties, more like gangs today, are complicit. Many people such as the group who voted against reinstating the above right, are actually complicit in destroying the very Constitution they have taken an oath to uphold. This is by definition an insurrection. When two or more people are involved in an insurrection, it is “treason”. We The People and our government have literally been overthrown from within, by the two most powerful political gangs and they are both highly violent and corrupt.
The Constitution says they shall not hold office and,
It says that any monetary claim to Congress to put down an insurrection, if successful, shall not be challenged.
So the provisions of restoring our constituted provisions are4 in the Constitution itself. We just need a large enough group to restore it.
In the below link, Andrew Colesanti, a founding member of the Counter-Insurgency Studies and Observation Group (COINSOG) makes the case that Biden and Harris by virtue of them campaigning to “legislatively” void the 2nd Amendment, for the right to bear arms, have thus broken their Oaths and thus should not have placed themselves on the ballot for the election. The Constitution gives us two lawful methods of amending the Constitution and both Biden and Harris have not advocated these methods and instead, have and are still attempted to unlawfully subvert the Constitution and its intent to protect the rights of the Citizens through unlawful legislative means. https://therightofchoice.wordpress.com/?p=158
Can you imagine a large group of COINSOG Citizens arresting Biden and Harris for insurrection and treason and putting them on trial? Right now, there are not enough members and obviously, security and privacy are of great importance to both the usurpers and we the people if we partake in such civil actions. Or we can maintain the status quo that appears to be taking us down a potentially violent path of incoherent civil unrest.
2. The Right of Choice; the website to the above link is about creating a substitute tax return that allows the individual taxpayers to choose which government programs they want or do not want to pay for with their taxes. With over 120 different taxes and regulatory fees, the government surely has plenty of discretionary money to pay for the less popular programs. If the IRS denies the use of the substitute returns, which is likely, the taxpayers, simply removes that section from their return and refiles it to meet their perceived income tax obligations. If they deny the substitute returns, this of course provides the Citizens a very interesting legal and constitutional challenge through the courts. The publicity alone would be worth the effort and a much easier sell to the average American to join in the movement. Seeing who pushes back and their arguments against such an initiative will surely be enlightening.

Bundlers are people with friends in high places who, after bumping against personal contribution limits, turn to those friends, associates, and, well, anyone who’s willing to give, and deliver the checks to the candidate.
The Federal Election Commission requires disclosure only of those bundlers who are registered lobbyists. Beyond that, it’s up to the candidate. The Clinton campaign is releasing information about bundlers who raised over $100,000 (see list below); the campaign does not specify how much each of these individuals has raised beyond that. The Trump campaign has released no information about its bundlers whatsoever.

This is a copy of the certified letter that has been sent to President Donald Trump. The purpose as you will read, is to report to him as required under the Constitution, any and all known insurrections, treasons, and plots against the United States or “the Laws thereof”. According to the Constitution and the following United States Statute, it is a crime for any elected official to ignore the evidence and do nothing about it. This Group has been around for almost 30 years and have experienced my examples of usurpations and criminal acts against the Citizens and laws of this country and have noticed numerous Presidents and other Public Officials of the crimes. It is now time for the Citizens to use the laws and Constitution to indict those involved. The question then becomes, how many are involved?
COUNTER INSURGENCY OBSERVATION & STUDIES GROUP (COINSOG)
8409 N. Oak River Way, Hernando, Florida 34442
To: Office of the President
Donald Trump, President of the United States
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, D. C., 20500
Title 18 U.S.C. § 2382 Notice of Misprision of Treason
Qualified claim by COINSOG for appropriations under the rules of necessity and delegated authority of the 9th Amendment and Section 4 (insurrection clause) of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of America to payments, bounties and pensions for services to put down rebellion and insurrection against the duly constituted Republic its Bill of Rights & Constitution.
Dear President Trump,
Referenced law requires anyone owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason or insurrections against the authority of the United States, or the laws thereof to make known the same to the President, some Judge of the United States, or to the Governor or Judges or Justices of a particular State. What I report to you is ongoing within the fifty States, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealths. I must report to you, that most all Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States except for the Honorable Justice Thomas, most Federal, State, County and local Public Officials, Judges, Justices and their paramilitaries have used public appropriations, their public offices, vacating their Oaths of Office intentionally in the process, to defy Federal and State laws with sufficient force and effect during times pertinent, so as to deny the power of the United States Constitution with their “Qualified Immunity” schemes. Thereby they, each of them, became insurgents against that Constitution as prescribed by Sections 3 (insurrection clause) and 4 (bounty clause) of the 14th Amendment using the definition of Federal case entitled, “In Re Charge to Grand Jury, N.D., Ill., 1894, 62 F. 828.”
It has become abundantly clear that all Federal, State, County and local Courts in America are exacting their qualified immunity schemes to bolster a Police State apparatus whose mission is to pacify the American civilian population into submission of usurped powers thereby creating an arbitrary government. This is evidence, that these Courts no longer serve to benefit the civilian populations, instead victimizing them by the arrogant and unlawful violations of their natural civil and constitutional rights, thereby an insurrection has taken hold. Therefore, the best course of action is a counter insurgency under Section 4 (bounty clause) of the 14th Amendment directed at those cited in Section 3 (insurrection clause) of the 14th Amendment who have violated or vacated their Oaths of Office, thereby they shall not hold office.
We the People have heard all the arguments in favor of qualified immunity, however not one argument negates the fact that it is insurrection, treason and conspiracy by Public Officials within the Judiciary that gave unchecked force to their paramilitaries in order to capriciously victimize the American civilian population. We all now witness the overwhelming call by segments of the civilian population and Public Officials to de-fund and even abolish police primarily because of the protections extended to them by the treasonous qualified immunity scheme. This matter Mr. President could be defused simply by the execution of an Presidential Executive Order abolishing qualified immunity, restructuring of police duties, and responsibilities and not as paramilitaries.
Then there is the pressing question; “is America a duly constituted Republic or has it become a Police State Junta” with minimal protections of individual rights? Not unlike those brutal Juntas that were trained at the Old School of the Americas, WINSEC or of late American paramilitaries trained by the IDF in classic violent military pacification of civilian populations to force them into submission of usurpation’s, notwithstanding the Bill of Rights and Constitution.
The arming of the current Police State Apparatus with military arms and implements of war became apparent with the enactment of the Gun Control ACT of May 1986 as the treasonous disarming of peaceful American civilians took hold as if it was a war upon their natural civil and constitutional rights. This has become the status quo, strengthened by the insurgent’s qualified immunity scheme. Then there is the fact that nowhere within the text of the 2nd Amendment can one find the phrase “but in a manner to be prescribed by law” evidencing why the usurpers covet their treasonous blanket of qualified immunity.
Coupled with qualified immunity “bound by an oath of office” as defined in the COINAGE ACT, a blanket bond scheme was developed, solely intended to pass the financial liability of bad actors in public office and their para-military enforces onto the taxpayers, thus unlawfully indemnifying themselves from personal liability. There has been debate about whether or not any civilian uprising against the aforementioned treasonous insurgents cited within Section 3 (insurrection clause) of the 14th would be rebellion or insurrection against a duly constituted authority, in of itself? The best qualified answer we have found to this question is: EXCERPT’ reason for the militia; “to stand against any arbitrary government and its usurped powers as reiterated by Supreme Court Justice Story in Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States Vol. 3 at pp. 746-747 (1833). It is surely reasonable to conclude that in a nation with fundamental liberties, a direct remedy must be afforded those victimized, coerced and harassed by these insurgents and their para-military protectors.
Evidence of an insurrection is well documented, from within the various government bodies, using the qualified immunity scheme to deny the liberty and justice, intended by the Constitution and Bill of Rights. So now the question is, “has government at all levels become arbitrary?” The answer to this pressing question lies within but not limited to the following facts: two former Presidents were served with Notice of Misprision of Treason by members of COINSOG, as it relates to the courts they chose to aid and abet by their inactions. COINSOG members also brought forth cases citing insurrection, treason, and conspiracy into U.S. District Courts within several states of the union, again to no avail. Those states were New Mexico, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Texas, South Dakota as well as the SCOTUS, even though early law required as mandatory “not discretionary” the SCOTUS review all cases citing insurrection. Then we have the fact “Congress knew or should have known of the unconstitutional qualified immunity schemes and the negative impact it would and has had on the civilian population, many of whom rot in jails who have and are denied their constitutional rights. Not one meaningful or honest attempt from within has occurred to stop the ongoing insurrection and treason from within. “Thereby it can be said an arbitrary government has indeed taken hold.”
All of America who care to observe, as well as the members of the Counter Insurgency Studies & Observation Group (COINSOG) have witnessed countless court cases brought forth by victims of the insurgent’s unjust qualified immunity schemes to “try” to establish accountability for the ongoing usurpations of their natural civil and constitutional rights, only too further suffer from the “qualified immunity scheme used to deny, again and again any liability or accountability whatsoever and it still continues.”
Even you Mr. President, I truly suspect, was unaware of those engaged in the insurrection and treason, as it relates to “RED FLAG LAWS”. The MO was seizing the guns first from honest Citizens and worry about the due process later. However, how are we the people to expect due process of law, while the blanket of treasonous qualified immunity is protected by our courts and instead, used by usurpers to trample upon the natural, civil and constitutional rights of the America population?
I would be remis if I did not point out, there are other insurgents and their component forces at work 24-7, some of which are allegedly led by convicted Marxist terrorist, one of many terrorists pardoned by BILL CLINTON and ruthlessly targeting you Mr. President and the segment of America that supports you. The time has arrived to not only invoke Section 4 (bounty clause) of the 14th Amendment, to route out those insurgents who have disavowed their oaths of office, as cited in Section 3 (insurrection clause) of the 14th Amendment and the INSURRECTION ACT. To route out all insurgent component forces that threaten not only you Mr. President, but the election process, and the duly constituted Republic, its Bill of Rights, Constitution and those American’s who support you.
In conclusion: Mr. President, common sense dictates, no one wants civil unrest, a civil war or perhaps a revolution. We must stop the usurpations exacted by embedded insurgents from within our own government and their component forces and the social unrest it is causing across the nation. If we do nothing” it will likely continue. The only logical and more peaceable path left to the American civilian population is to invoke Section 4 (bounty clause) of the 14th Amendment under the rules of necessity and delegated authority of the 9th Amendment. Thereby “COINSOG defined, as other armed forces of the United States of America”, reiterates its claim to payments, bounties, and pensions to put down the identified insurrection under Section 4 (bounty clause) of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of America.
It is not hard to acknowledge
that when Judges are chosen politically, the Judges will become as much a politician
as those selecting them. The
confirmation hearings of Judges have become a political battle so adverse and
contentious, that they are partially being fought through the legal system
Of course, this is the worst
thing that could ever occur in any society, but it has been the rule throughout
human history. The Judges have always been a rubber stamp for the ruling class
and the various factions want their candidate to be the one confirmed. The should give you an indication of just how
arbitrary judicial decisions have been and can be.
“With Justice for None” is also the
title of a book by the best-selling author and prominent defence Attorney Gerry
Spence, now deceased, who wrote a highly critical review of our legal
“A scathing indictment of how law is taught, practiced, and
administered in this country . . . One of the best books ever written on the
law.”—The Denver Post
“Renowned trial lawyer Gerry Spence takes an in-depth
look at the American justice system and reveals a terrible truth: If you don’t
have power or money, then you likely won’t receive justice either. The wealthy
buy their way out of trouble, while the poor are punished. In an effort to
combat this corruption, the author devises a number of reforms, tackling issues
in every area of the system from law school to the courtroom.”
This is the truth about our legal
system, and I have read and heard hundreds of stories over the years providing additional
evidence. If you have the money to pay the extravagant prices the average
Attorneys charges, and many of them are “poor to average” at best in their
abilities to acquire justice, you will get better treatment that those that
don’t have the money. Many of them are highly unscrupulous and will take your
money and then do hardly anything to help you. And God forbid, having to use a
Public Defender who is an indirect drain on the pension funds of the Judges and
other government employees that work the justice system, I call Courthouse
IMHO, with the States and
American BAR Associations, they have created a quasi power cartel full of
individuals with highly questionable integrity. In 1820, Thomas Jefferson apparently
agreed when he wrote; “The Judiciary of the United States is the
subtle corps of sappers and miners constantly working underground to undermine the
foundation of our confederated fabric.… the Federal Judiciary; an irresponsible
body (for impeachment is scarcely a scarecrow) working like gravity by night
and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow and advance it’s
noiseless step like a thief over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be
usurped from the States, and the government of all be consolidated into one…. when
all government….in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as
the centre of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one
government on another and will become as venal and oppressive as the government
from which we separated.
Our Judiciary, has allowed, until
just this week of 3/15/2019 the “extraordinary” excessive confiscation of money
and property through unconstitutional Asset Forfeiture actions protected by the
8Th Amendment to be standard operations by local, state and Federal
Law enforcement agencies. Finally, after decades perhaps even a century or so, of
unlawful confiscations of property and money from the Citizens by government
prosecutors and law enforcement, the Supreme Count finally has upheld and
protected one of out constitutional rights, in a case Timbs v Indiana after the appellate determination by the Indiana Supreme Court, affirmed
an action so unconscionable that it boggles the imagination.
We all know our political system
is inherently flawed because of the effects of money on the system but unless
you follow some of the lower and Supreme Court decisions carefully you are not
necessarily cognizant of the Courts poor behavior.
I think they got Roe vs Wade
right and many others but when it comes to the governments taxing and other
confiscatory powers to fine, penalize and imprison, it is as if it is a
profitable business to them.
I’ll give you one example. During
the foreclosure epidemic, the South Florida Courts literally became a purely
arbitrary system with a “rocket docket” mentality as it was being called by
Attorneys, forgoing most of the rules of law and this was a determination from
the top down, with the Senior Judges telling their subordinates to clear their
docket, ruling against the homeowners almost 100% of the time. Come to find out
the Judges have their own pension fund and they had invested in some of the
mortgage loans sold be Wall Street and the banks.
Despite the various frauds
initiated by the banks and mortgage lenders, homeowners lost their homes almost
100% of the time unless the banks made some sort of deal with the homeowners. Here in So. Florida we still have huge
numbers of foreclosures still on the dockets and it is often the banks
themselves slowing the process. As a Realtor, I think they are trying to slowly
bring these properties on the market so that the keep the inventories low and
prices remain high but that’s another issue for another day.
The rocket docket mentality still
exists as far as the Judges siding with the banks, but the legal processes have
normalized. If you think justice is being served, it is not. We even have found
family members of the Judges being owners of banks or major shareholders.
In the State of Florida, a jury
trial is prohibited for foreclosure proceeding by Florida Statute allowing only
the Judges to reside, called a Judicial Hearing over the determination of the
cases. How can this even be constitutional?
What is amazing is that Thomas
Jefferson warned us about this so many years ago. He stated: “The opinion which
gives to the Judges the right to decide what laws are Constitutional and what
not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action, but for the
legislature and executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a
Despotic branch. The new Constitution
has secured these (individual rights) in the Executive and Legislative
departments; but not in the Judiciary. It should have established trials by the
people themselves, that is to say by jury.” Understand that he was writing
about the jury being the final arbiter at the Appellate levels just as it is most
often at the Circuit Court level.
In one case We The People v. United States, 485 F.3D 140 (2007), one Judge made the initial decision in the lawsuit to deny the right to petition the government for redress of grievances under the 1st Amendment, a group of 62 questions relating to the Federal individual Income Tax, the U.S. Government would not answer. A three Judge panel, including the now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh upheld the usurpation and the SCOTUS refused to hear the case. https://openjurist.org/485/f3d/140/we-the-people-foundation-inc-v-united-states So, we had in this case, just “four” people determining if Citizens have the Right to petition the Government for Redress of Grievances under the 1st Amendment and expect honest answers to those questions. Siding with Kavanaugh was Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Chief Justice and District of Columbia Circuit Court Justice, Judith W. Rogers. The initial Judge in the lawsuit at the DC Circuit was Judge Emmet G. Sullivan. I call them the four henchmen for usurping one of the most necessary rights of all. Our founding fathers petitioned King George as well and with the same results.
The proverbial question is why have a right to petition the government
for redress of grievances, if the Government doesn’t have to honestly respond
to questions pertaining especially to the tax laws of our nation? If they
cannot answer such questions, how are they able to assess and enforce them?
It was the single most influential action taken by those in the
U.S. Government that made me come to the very sad but honest realization, as
those from Princeton University and other academics have concluded. That we are
an oligarchy and not a democratic republic any more, quashing the entire notion
of any possibility of representative democracy under our current leadership and
system. IMHO, it is the judiciary that provides the legal precedence that has slowly
allowed the expanded size and scope of powers beyond the constitutional limitations
set force in our rules of law. There are
legal and proper ways to amend our Constitution, yet the judiciary has ignored
them on many occasions, legislating from the Bench as each political Party
contends the other is doing. In all three of the above situations noted above,
it was the Judiciary single handedly that was the final arbiter fostering the
usurpation of rights protected by the Bill of Rights.
It simply comes down
to just nine people determining the laws for a nation of 325 million people;
two much power in the hands of too few individuals. With the negation of the
right to petition for redress of grievances, they have now blocked all of the
Citizens ability of any method(s) of direct oversight over those in judicial power,
as Thomas Jefferson warned so very long ago. You can vote your little hearts out and it
will have little bearing, these justices are nominated and confirmed by the
most politically powerful in our system.
The President and 100 Senators now decide our judicial fate.
Then we wonder
why the Government has grown from having just one tax, a luxury import tax, to taxing
everyone and everything we do with Gestapo like tactics, WWII Germany would be proud
of. Total government spending at all levels is now at $7.4 trillion “annually” and
we must borrow $1 trillion of that annually, now placing every household in
debt to the turn of about $175,000.00 with a total of just the Federal Government
debt now surpassing $22 trillion.
We are literally
indebting the future generations beyond their potential of paying it back
without debasing our currency even more.
Inflation has only been curbed by the poor economic conditions felt by everyone
but the wealthy who appear to be oblivious to the effects placed on the middle
to lower socio-economic spectrum.
With the Federal budget especially, but also state and local, if Citizens could pick and choose which social programs they want to pay for and how much they want to contribute to each one, it would at least give us some semblance of a democracy.
Look, there is no one greater than I that fears the voting majority because they are not being educated and there is no reason for the ruling class to educate them, and actually just the opposite. The stupider the voters are the more they can be taken advantage of.
With politicians making the decisions, knowing darn well they are serving the wealthy special interests instead of the majority, the benefits of our democratic republic are negated. We’re simply an oligarchy, controlled by wealthy special interests pretending to be a democratic Republic like the Roman Empire and ALL other nation-states before us.
Can you imagine politicians having to actually prove to the voters that a war is needed with the citizens getting to decide if the truth is really being told to us? Would we have engaged in Desert Storm or Syria?
We have the technology to do this, it’s the political will I am worried about. These putzes can’t even get a simple 1 man 1 vote election correct. That’s because sadly we have the inmates running the asylum; oh right, we’re calling it a swamp now. Elon Musk and SpaceX can send rockets into space and land them safely, and we can get a friggin computer system to count the votes correctly?

Thomas Jefferson; “A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”
George Washington; “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force, like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”
So, the challenge to parents and educators; teach your children what is important and teach them the truth. I have a feeling that some of you may need to brush up a little on both.
The reason some people don’t like to pay taxes has nothing to do with greed. It’s principle. They don’t like the government stealing the Citizens money and giving the money out to the largest campaign contributors, friends or family. Many call our system crony capitalism for a reason.
With 1 in 5 working people working for the government, not including the plethora of government contractors, do you recognize the economic problem? This ratio mathematically is not physically or economically sustainable and why both publically and privately we have amassed more debt then we can afford to pay back. Hense the number of bankruptcies and foreclosures over the last 25 years.
Additionally, arguing over inheritance taxes at this point is financially meaningless. It’s too easy for the super wealthy, whom I think some are referring to, to do a plethora of things to protect their assets. i.e. a Living Trust. Simply by placing all your assets in a trust, as the Walton (Wallmart) family did, the successor Trustee became the new manager, upon the father’s death, All the assets remained in trust and thus no taxable event occurred. Whereas with Joe Robbie, the former owner of the Miami Dolphins died, the estate taxes were so high, his children had to sell the team and stadium in order to pay the taxes due because they did not place all the asset in Trust for estate planning purposes. Even though the children had spent years helping their father run the business, they literally lost it all to inheritance taxation. Whereas, the Rockefellas reportedly have over 100 Trusts and have had them for decades for a reason and they have maintained their wealth over generations.
So, why not close up the Trust laws so at least some inheritance taxes are paid? Now here’s the part I want everyone to pay attention to carefully. Because the target of this type tax would simply do something else, to get around it. They’ll sell and move if necessary. Why do you think so many of the multinational corporations have moved their holding companies to Panama? Could it be because of the tax-exempt status? Additionally, you’re not going to beat the super wealthy at the political game they dominate and this is a historical truth going back well over 3,000 years.
Democracy you say. You can’t even get the typical voters to read a legislative bill, much less understand all the complexities. The average voter has no idea what is and isn’t being passed because it is so complex and manipulated by the wealthy. Add in all the faux commentary and we have America with the majority getting screwed as history has shown throughout the ages. Have you ever tried reading a Supreme Court decision in a tax case?
It called going Gult in the book Atlas Shrugged. It’s when the wealthy sell off all their assets, shut down their businesses and move somewhere else, where nobody wants to steal so much their money. That’s one of the reasons so many factories have shut down; 42,000 in just the last 15 years and much more before that.
I did not become a libertarian because I haven’t done my homework or looked at our society realistically. The only way to fight city hall is to either abolish it through a tax rebellion or wait until it collapses, as they all do, under their own corruption and economic failure. The latter is obviously the much more realistic, but it is also the much more undesirable and why libertarians embrace less government, hoping enough people will see the light before it goes dark, and it can, as history shows, really get dark.
In the United Socialist States of America, small business are being forced out of business in record numbers. Automotive repair shops as an example, are closing in massive numbers is communities throughout the country. Why?
The current recovery, although one of the three longest in U.S. history is also the weakest one ever. I don’t want to rub it in, but we told you this was going to happen so 35+ years ago. We are the libertarians who may be the most misunderstood ideology of all.
Libertarians believe in less government and we surely don’t believe the things our government text books told us that government is there to do those things we as a society can’t do without government. If private enterprise can build roads, sewage treatment plants, the Panama Canal, bridges, rockets that go into deep space and even private militia groups like the Green Mountain Boys, that without the voluntary associations, the likelihood of America being what it is today, instead of a British colony, would not have occurred. The American Revolution, based
on individual liberty, literally changed the world. Sadly, the average American has lost their will to protect our liberties and thus acquiesce to the status quo for fear of upsetting the apple cart.
Government is not a voluntary association. You are forced to be a part of it, and those that challenge the system are often imprisoned or force to flee like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, for doing so. Private enterprise doesn’t kill their potential customers or hold a gun to their heads to buy their products; that would be the government. The entire system of nation-states throughout the world are based on brut and violent force if necessary, and they, according to University of Hawaii Professor Rummel, the governments of the world have killed over 200 million people, he calls Democide “just” in the 20th century alone. Whites in Germany and Russia, blacks in Africa and Asians in Cambodia and Laos have all been killed in mass by their own governments, so this is not just human nature, this is directly because of the system of legalized force we call government. Private enterprise doesn’t kill their potential customers or hold a gun to your head to buy their products.
We have the large amount of chaos, murder and crime today because of government. Just think back on the amount of conflict the various governments have done to the world, and there is overwhelming evidence government is at the very least a major part of the problem. Just 300 years ago, the English and other government were burning people at the stake of being witches. And in the case, the government recruited a church to be a part of the murders.
How about the terrorism so rampant in the world today? As Peter Ustinovstated, “Terrorism is the war of the poor as War is the terrorism of the rich.” The governments do want to acknowledge that these are just poor people fighting back against the atrocities and injustices being committed by the governments of the world. That some of the fighters like ISIS have been financed by the various governments.
We have so many redistribution of wealth schemes instituted at the various levels of government affecting America today, that it requires taxes that are so high, it is forcing people and businesses into bankruptcy and foreclosure at the highest levels in our history, much higher than even the Great Depression. Small business are dropping like flies and people are investing in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and other highly risky ventures to try to survive. In Venezuela, Bitcoin is being used as a primary currency because the government money has lost so much of it’s value, no one wants to use it anymore. The most stable money gold and silver are so highly manipulated by the various government central bankers that the prices are extremely low to try to prevent the investment in them like is happening to bitcoin. As the U.S. Dollar continues to lose its value, at some point in the very near future, you will see another rush to the bimetals that we haven’t seen in some years.
Will this happen in America? Of course, no society in world history has ever escaped the negative influences of government. You think the 2008 crash had a profound influence on our society, just wait until the next one hits and it’s coming very soon, many think it has already started.
No President in our recent history has been able to curb Federal government spending, which has now grown to $4 trillion annually requiring some 110 different taxes and regulatory schemes to pay for only about 3/4s of the budget, with the other 1/4 requiring historically over $20 trillion in debt to pay for the increasing annual deficits.
Great job America, if you add in the unfunded liabilities of another +/-$60 trillion, the majority is now taxed, regulated and in debt up to their eyeballs guarantying current and future generations will be impoverished for the rest of their God-given lives. In 1950, the annual Federal Budget was only $314 billion. This is pretty simple math if you follow the numbers which I have personally verified through the appropriate government website resources.
This recovery has been the third longest but the single weakest of all 50 recession and recoveries in U.S. history.
It is the belief of many economists like Peter Schiff that the next recession and potential depression has already started and will be worse, because of the above, than both the great recession of 2008 and the great depression of 1929. Timothy Geithner, Former Secretary of the Treasury, former New York Fed President, a student of the Great Depression, and an instrumental party in the structuring of the bailouts, in a Forbes article in 2014, stated the Great Recession of 2008 was actually worse than the Great Depression.
Like with many things, the “Faux” lamestream media and the education system has told us many lies, such as how bad the Great Depression was and how great our government was at saving our society back then and in 2008 & 2009. With some of those same tools now “unavailable” to the Central bankers, you should prepare for some significant changes in our financial and economic system. I strongly suggest you listen to Peter Schiff’s podcasts on YouTube to stay informed on our economy.
You all are my friends and family, so please stay informed and prepare accordingly.
Many economists from the Austrian School of Economics have been telling society for some thirty-five +/- years now that all these problems we are facing today, would eventually occur. Sorry, no one could give you the exact dates, but there is no such thing as a crystal ball. Peter Schiff, I and others did call the collapse of 2008, we didn’t know when exactly when it was going to happen, we just knew it was. Sadly few listened to us so don’t make that mistake again.
I have created a website to start the attempt to cure some of the ills of our society. It is http://jurists4juctice.com where I have laid out my ideas to start the transformation. One of the primary problems within a nation-state is the rubber stamping by the Judiciary of laws which have historically usurped the inalienable rights of the Citizens. It is erroneous to think that the system that is doing this will miraculously correct itself and we have well over 3,000 years of recorded evidence. The Romans were incredible recordkeepers and they collapsed for basically the same reasons we are so we can either learn from our mistakes and be proactive or we can think that it will just miraculously change with the next fearless group of leaders.
The truth is that private ownership of property is the greatest instrument of freedom ever designed and it is sheer folly to speak of granting a man freedom while withholding that instrument from him. – Bertel M. Sparks
What Sparks says above, PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS is in my humble opinion the single most important aspect of a civil society. Protecting them is however perhaps one of the single hardest aspects of a civil society.
How well your society does this, is the difference between life and death for some, poverty and prosperity for others and incarceration and almost unlimited powers and prestige for others.
The universal soldier from a poor family is often asked to risk and thus give up his life for the greater good. He, mostly men, can be from France or Germany, Canada or Venezuela, The Congo or Vietnam and with little wage or other monetary benefits, many become soldiers because they see little opportunity elsewhere to achieve the proverbial life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness every human being aspires to.
If we protected their private property rights, most of the deaths from warfare, both civilian and military combatants would not occur. This is true because if we protected their private property rights, it would also protect our private property rights.
One of the most important property rights is the right to keep the fruits of our labor. Where does government get the money to wage wars? From the taxes on labor and a host of other activities. This right is actually protected by the IV Amendment, the IX Amendment, and the XIII Amendment. However, if you were to read all the tax and case laws on this single highly important issue, you will find two dominant things. 1. There are a lot of them, both enacted legislation and court cases in the mix and 2. the arguments and judicial decisions have historically become more and more convoluted and unlawfully abrogated, to a point where the government, run by a relatively small ruling oligarchy, just about does anything they think they can get away with, without being lynched. The Federal government today shells out $4 trillion annually from our tax dollars and borrowing and then we wonder why so many are broke and in debt up to their eyeballs.
If the last 235 years has taught us one thing, the government will not be the entity that protects our private property rights. I thus call for the adoption of the Supreme Court Review Board, a voluntary association of Citizens to challenge when necessary, the various usurpations and unlawful abrogation that have occurred to out rule of law.
