A False, Legal Shutdown

American Revolution 2.0

Author's note: If you have an interest in the subject matter but have not yet read Dr. Benjamin Franklin's essay; Rules for Reducing a Great Empire to a Small One, I recommend you do.

 

In one foul swoop the government has terminated more jobs than our country has ever seen before. To simply say that this is an issue of government overreach, is a bit too simplistic. This situation is the result of licensing. 

 

A license, in this context, is define as: Leave; permission; authority or liberty given to do or forbear any act. A license may be verbal or written; when written, the paper containing the authority is called a license

 

Naturally, the licensing of rights is unconstitutional. For if it is a right, no other permission is needed but thy own's accord. And for the government to claim it has the authority to distribute permissions for people to exercise their own rights is a hallmark of tyranny. But this is something that has been around for a long time, and in particular, is what gave rise to the "freedom of the press" phrase in the First Amendment. 

 

When you accept a license, the entity that authorizes the license has the authority to terminate it. Thus with business licenses, for example, at any time the government may force any business to do as it commands. To the point, in Arizona, a McDonald's restaurant was forced to paint it's iconic yellow "M", turquoise. Though I am currently addressing a more serious issue of forcing businesses to close, this example proves the point that there is inherently no limit to the authority. If they say "paint it blue or close" you must. Like a gun to the back of the head, so long as Americans consent to licensing, they will be at the total mercy of whom they accepted the license from; their own government!

 

To solve this issue we must terminate the unconstitutional practice of government licenses. As the government declares now, that 'certain businesses are to be shut down, lest they lose their license and may no longer operate'. Without a license, such tyrannical words hold little more power than a suggestion. 

 

For most Americans, their lively-hood is based on permits and licenses. And what was once a political theory; that our government can require citizens to behave a certain way, or have certain views in order to be allowed certain privileges like driving, fishing or bank accounts, is now becoming real in America. Through Licensing the government may now control every portion of your life.

 

But this did not just happen! This is a deeply rooted problem in America's current society. You must understand that licenses are un-American. And as an American citizen, whatever dangers may occur from living free from licenses is a) entirely worth it and b) safer than slavery. Licenses are the government's lien to your God-given rights. Those chains were always there, it is only that just now they are being pulled.

 

We must break free of the chains that have allowed for this tyrannical overreach. We must break free from the concept of licensing. We cannot allow this control through licensing to continue any longer.

Since I don't know your level of literacy, I can't answer the question about being a 'liberal democrat'.  If you meant to write 'liberal Democrat' then no, I'm not. If you meant, someone who believes in liberal democracy, as the term is conventionally used, then yes I am. (I don't know whether you know how the term is conventionally used, however.)  As for being a politician, no ... I have never run for office. I have worked as a  volunteer for a couple of candidates, both  Republicans, in Colorado  and California.

 

I agree regarding the term "liberal", I started using the term neo-liberal recently to distinguish from the leftist and so called progressive elitist that have hijacked the term from it's original meaning.  A true liberal is a strong believer in individual rights and freedoms and not necessarily at odds with conservatism but in balance in a common sense way.  I am very conservative about some things, moderate on a few things, and very liberal about personal rights and freedoms.  There should be far less government intervention in many things personal it has it's fingers in these days.  I like to think that I am conservative in things that people should be and liberal in things that people should be, balance for both self and society as a whole.  The Libertarian party was originally founded on these balanced principles but many feel it has been infiltrated and hijacked now as well.  (raises hand).

When things change slowly, you tend not to notice them.  In the past, the Democrats were a patriotic party. There were differences between both parties, for sure, but neither was a party of flagburners.  Things  have changed.

John F Kennedy was a patriot. Most of the people who voted for him were patriots. Most of the people who voted for Richard Nixon were patriots.  Both sides loved their country, thought it was pretty special in the world, and just disagreed about what should be done to take it forward.  (And the disagreements weren't all that great, either.)  But we can call Kennedy a 'liberal Democrat'.

 

The problem is, things have changed ... slowly, but profoundly.  Most people on the left are not patriots any more.  (I'm not talking about the flag-burners, the extreme Left ... but the 'middle' Left.) They have a deep disdain for their country, having been educated by Howard Zinn's disciples. They show their distaste for patriotic ceremonies.  They call Confederates 'traitors', while approving of anti-aircraft gunner Jane Fonda, or the atomic spies who were executed and are now honored by New York City. They believe their country is, and has been from the beginning, defined by 'racism'. 

 

So when they see the riots, they believe that the rioters are justified. Their sympathy is with the criminals, not the business owners or the ordinary decent policemen.

 

Things have changed profoundly, but we still use the same words we were using 60 years ago .. 'liberal' and 'conservative', as if the most important differences now were the rate of taxation or the minimum wage.

 

I try not to use the words 'liberal' and 'conservative' ... certainly not the former one. The word 'patriot' pretty well sums it up now.

 

(I love the Libertarians, who are the Right wing  with a human face. But they have been captured by ideology. They want to auction off Yosemite!!!!)

I only began to realize what was happening about 15  years ago, when I got into a lot of arguments with 'liberals' on debate forums, mainly about the Iraq invasion and occuption. When  quoteBush first proposed it, I was skeptical. I quoted Robespierre, that people do not love missionaries with bayonets. But then I thought it was working .. a year or two after the invasion, it looked to me like we might be 'draining the swamp' there and building a halfway decent country, which could serve as a beacon for the region.  ("Draining  the swamp" was why we went in  in the first place... I never believed the b.s. about 'weapons of mass destruction').

 

I noticed  something  when I was arguing with people who were against the invasion on various discussion boards .... there were some who obviously loved their country and thought we had made a terrible mistake.  But most of the people against the war, were also against their country .... you could tell they had a deep revulsion for America, and for liberal democracy.  It was not deeply ideological -- they were not Marxists.  It was just a reflex.  They saw the world as divided between evil white people, and virtuous non-white people.  They were gleeful when the other side won.

 

I don't see how, in the long run, we can live in the same country with such people.  The differences are not over the minimum wage or levels of taxation or unions.  These are trivial.  The differences are over, basically, whether or not Western Civilization is a good thing, and the best thing on offer in the world right now. 

 

They don't think so.  And their numbers are growing, because people who think this way are increasingly influential in the education system, and have already taken over the entertainment industry and the national media.

 

So  build the militia movement!

Rascaldees I'm listening to something else right now since so much information is flowing around right now, but you're right, there is no plan of action. I also agree about fighting, only as a last resort. And I also agree with 10% being a monumental task. I came to this sight because I had a feeling we'd all need to band together, and I have that feeling stronger than ever right now, but as far as I know, I'm alone up here. And I'd like to go back the police because they aren't all bad, but in NY i can't go walk my streets w.a loaded rifle because I don't want to instigate the cops with everything else going on. So in terms of solutions, what would you suggest for organizing our numbers, because I've been trying to and end up getting called a conspiracy theorist or told to calm down everything will be fine.

Just keep trying to find people who line up with what you believe. I'm sure in NY that's a difficult task especially because of the laws they VOTE for.

I have read it word for word a lot lately... A government "for the people, by the people" and you are right "THEY" work for us. Our Constitution is the rules for them to follow, which they do not and have not. I believe in what it says, before they started twisting and adding and "deciding" what is best for us. I don't know about any of you, but I don't need an f-ing nanny. 

We did let them....but does that mean it's too late? we are just going to let them destroy us? Tear us apart with their new "tricks" and old? It is an election year. What do you all think this is really about? It's the magic trick - it's the illusion - it is the distraction from what they are really doing --- building their power and control over the masses. At what point do "We the People" and I MEAN ALL OF US stop and say NO MORE!

It's not too late. At least not for those of us who want something better. It's definitely about consent, so I'm removing mine. The Fed AG, State AG and Sheriff will be notified. Governor put on notice. Those fighting to keep war and genocide as goals for the country are not on my side. Voting is consent. Paying for their projects by way of taxes, corporate purchases, banking, etc. All consent. People immigrated to America to own land and within 2 generations were serfs again. False flags are distractions. The more credence we give to them, the more control those who perpetrate them have. That's called a conspiracy theory. Whatever. I'm not buying it. I'm not consenting to a Bolshevik revolution in America. That's for the Soros supporters.
