A ‘Golden Opportunity’

14 May 2016 @ 18:19

One way to effectively battle the Despots running our governments is to refuse to go along with their un-Constitutional decrees, to not cooperate in our Enslavement by Tyrants.

In America, it is we individuals who hold the Sovereignty.  Ultimately we are the source of all Legitimate Authority.  Our governments at all levels exist to protect our Natural Rights.  In other words, the Government exists to serve us, not — and never — the other way around.  We determine the amount of Power that our governments can wield in our name.  We determine what are the limits on the Power and Control they may exercise.  We consent to their very and continued existence.

We agree, via our Constitution, to support our governments in their efforts by, among other ways, complying with the Laws they pass and even the Regulations they issue.  When we believe they have overstepped their Delegated Powers, we agree seek formal Redress through the Systems created by our Constitutions and Charters.

One Power we have never delegated to any of governments, however, is the Right to resist actions by our Servants that violate this compact.

It is a Fundamental, a Natural, Right the Sovereign People hold, as stated in The Declaration Of Independence:

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 and other Founding decrees….

One tactic that one can use to alter the Form Of Government, the Founders believed, was through resistance to unconstitutional acts of the government.

When The Townsend Duties were passed by Parliament in 1767 and 1768, many towns across the Colonies resisted the Acts through agreeing to not important any British goods as long as the Acts were still the law.  The Colonists also resisted the Tax on tea by refusing to allow ships carrying British tea to be landed on our shores and by refusing to purchase or drink any of it.

Resistance to Tyranny is in our DNA, as it were.  It is part of what it means to be a true American.  In fact, it is an Obligation — a Duty imposed on all of us because it is an essential weapon in combating Despotism.  A Constitutional Republic requires all of it’s citizens to stand guard duty around the camp where our Rights seek shelter.  Any successful incursions into our camp, fragile as it’s inhabitants are, can prove fatal to all of our Rights, which come from Nature and Nature’s God.  We are, therefore, charged with employing those tactics useful and necessary to meeting the particular challenges to the Safety of our Natural Rights.

All of the above is but a preamble to remarks that Jeff Goldstein made today on Twitter, which, as I have done before, I have gathered together [these opening arguments are my own and do not necessarily represent Jeff’s opinion]…

It occurs to me that the Obama Department Of Justice is giving states a golden opportunity to cut their dependence on federal funding.

Governors and local school boards need to decide if they’re going to be powerless symbolic placeholders useful only if the federal government has no current pressing agenda to override their putative authority; or whether they believe in federalism and will fight for it.

Disengage financially from federal funding for public schooling. Force the left to send National Guard units to protect Billy’s “right” to shower with Sally on days he claims to be feeling womanly.

Which state has the sack?  Alabama: looking for some public redemption…?

30-40 state civil wars against federal overreach need be launched at once. Governors need to retake power. Deny DOJ’s jurisdiction.

And I would add: will the True Americans in those states that decide to Resist support their Governors and/or Legislators?

The moment has come where we must decide if we are going to help lock in place those chains we allowed to be forged for our Enslavement or we are going to do our Duty and rise to the Challenge before us as Americans.

If I may be so crude: Not taking advantage of this golden opportunity is to agree to stay on your knees and keep getting a figurative golden shower.

Resistance is not futile — never, especially, when it is an act committed in the name of Freedom and Ordered Liberty.

I will not be a slave.
I will either live free or die.

Non serviam.
Aut mori aut liberos vivere.

    ”In America, it is we individuals who hold the Sovereignty. Ultimately we are the source of all Legitimate Authority.” Is apparently no longer true. I can’t even say when sovereignty slipped away though much of it certainly happened during my lifetime. It certainly started at least as early as the first decade or the 20th century though some would say the civil war. It escalated rapidly in the early thirties, which is when I would date the Progressive revolution, and the revolution was complete before Roosevelt died yet I didn’t know that when I was and had grown up. While they will surely continue to tighten the screws, they had already seized all the powers they needed.

      We must seize it back.

    Our own federal government has become a sexual predator upon us by the compulsion of regulations that have the weight of law. So we have multiple failures to follow the Constitution here. It is not only the Obama Administration that is at fault, it is also the Ryan Administration for leaving the mechanisms of this tyranny in place when he took Speakeship. And I would add, equally upon Senator McConnell when he took charge of the Senate.

    This additional aspect of this outrageous tyranny began when Congress allowed the executive branch bureaucracies to pass regulations as if they were laws without requiring Congress to have a final say in the matter. Congress has given up its responsibilities and must repair this immediately. But will they? Hello, Is Paul Ryan home?

    I wrote about that very same subject a couple of days ago, with a bit of a different twist..

    What are the Feds going to do, violate the Constitution (Posse Comitatus) to “uphold” the Constitution? Send troops in to attack the States to satiate their greed for money and power? That certainly won’t go over well.

    And, when they realize that they have a losing hand, they will be shown to be the paper tiger that they are. Their power is only derived from the peoples’ perception of that power. Once the people realize that the Feds can’t enforce all of their un-Constitutional laws, they can be winnowed back by 90% to where they truly belong.

      WTF do you think Lincoln did? All of his actions rendered the words of the Declaration of Independence an historical curiosity while breaking the republic. Consequently, the idea of the “sovereign citizen” became null and void.
