What would America look like in revolt? There is a lot of talk out there (especially since the Senate passed S-510 giving government control over the food supply) about resistance. I say we are at that point. It is time for the resistance to begin. It is time to be Americans and reach down and lift up that ingenuity to begin active resistance against the Constitutionally illiterate.
Rights are not things to be meted out by government when it sees fit. They are not prizes to be won by compliance and adherence to random, vague rules. Rights are that which each person has by natural law. The free among us exercise them and maintain them, the serfs have forgotten or never knew they existed. Trust me, the government prefers serfs to free citizens any day.
“Oh, but I don’t commit crimes, I really don’t need privacy of papers and effects,” one might say. “It is for the better good that I allow the police officers to randomly search me and my things.” This is a serf mentality. This is the thinking of a subject, not a citizen. Worse, the lack of vigilance in this regard allows that right to soften and grow weak before the courts. This is how the republic was lost, through that mindset. How noble in thought they are to themselves, those serf-minded among us.
For lack of vigilance in the past we have now arrived at the condition of serfs. Our government largely ignores us unless it stands to gain from our outbursts, usually to the detriment of other rights unguarded. We submit ourselves to illegal searches and seizures whenever we run into a DUI checkpoint, or want to fly on an airliner. We have allowed the government access to our savings accounts and checking accounts (all they have to do is claim we are involved in some form of domestic terrorism and their latest classification “Domestic Extremist” is a step in that direction). We have allowed them to claim ownership over our food in the interest of safety. On and on it goes. It is not a short list: they tell us when to buckle our seat belts, what light bulbs to buy, how much water a toilet can use to flush, where to put our trash and in how many containers and more. This is freedom? This is liberty? I’m not saying that none of these things have some good aspects, I am saying that they should not be law in a free country. [...] go read the rest
