Are We Really Free? Maybe It’s Time for a Personal Declaration of Independence

Some time between throwing some burgers on the grill and shooting off fireworks with a beer in one hand and a lighter in the other, ask yourself this question:

How free and independent are you?

How independent are any of us, really? We like to think we live in the “free-est” nation in the world, but do we really?  Think about it.

  • You never own your home outright, even when the mortgage is paid off. Every year, you must make your extortion payment to the city or trust me, you won’t be living in that house for long.
  • The same thing with your car. If you don’t pay your annual extortion payment on your vehicle and pay a hundred bucks for a tiny sticker that gives you permission to drive it, it will be promptly towed away by the city with the government’s blessing. Then, like a hostage negotiation gone wrong, you’ll have to pay even more money to cover their theft and storage of YOUR vehicle.
  • On a regular basis, you must pay a fee and ask the government for permission to do any number of things, such as driving a car, traveling outside the country, running a business, adding another bathroom to your home, or even catching a fish for dinner.
  • Permits and licenses are big revenue generators from start to finish – and if you proceed without asking permission, they will extort more money from you in the form of fines. If you refuse to pay the fines (or if you can’t) they’ll kidnap you and lock you in a cage, where you’ll be forced to perform manual labor for 10 cents an hour for whatever length of time the legal authorities feel is sufficient to teach you a lesson.
  • There are places in our nation where you can’t use your property the way you want. There are areas where you cannot collect the water that falls on your land. There are places where you aren’t allowed to detach your home from the grid. There are places that dictate where your vegetable garden can grow (or even if you’re allowed to have one), places that won’t allow you to hang your clothes out to dry, and places that make it illegal to sleep in your car.

The bottom line is, some places in the United States are freer than others, but we’re all still serfs paying fealty to lords.

I’m sick of it.

Did you know that, as a business owner, when I write a paycheck of $1200 to an employee, it costs me $1399.91 and that she only ends up with $1042.12? Think about what we could all do with an extra $357.79 per pay period. I bet we wouldn’t go out fighting wars on other people’s soil with it. I bet we wouldn’t enrich politicians and weapons manufacturers with it and special interest groups with it.

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of it.

I’m sick of being taxed locally on the business I created using absolutely no municipal resources, of being taxed on the wages I pay to my employees, of being taxed on the car that the bank and I own, of being asked for a list of personal property so the local government can tax me on that too.

Sick.

Of.

It.

And it goes far beyond taxation.

Our government isn’t really made up of the elected officials that it purports. It’s made up, mostly, by people who sell their souls to huge corporations that have an interest in beneficial (to them) laws being passed and laws that would harm their businesses shut down before they ever reach the desk of the presidents.

As well, the supposed watchdog entities, like the Food and Drug Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the United States Department of Agriculture are populated and led by those who have been hand-picked to support corporations, no matter what the detriment to the American people whom they pretend to protect. If Congress was like Nascar, the members would have to wear uniforms emblazoned with their sponsors. However, Washington DC does not have the transparency of professional car racing, so we must guess at the sponsors of our “representatives.”

We are buried under silly laws with the sole purpose of generating revenue or adding to the slave labor force in the for-profit prison system. We must work most of our waking hours to be able to pay for our basic necessities. We are convinced repeatedly through entertainment and social media that we must have things that our ancestors would never have considered owning, much less requiring.

They have most people convinced that they must follow the food pyramid, the vaccine schedule, and the rules that force us to have licenses for every darned thing we do. We must pay for and be granted permission to feed ourselves, transport ourselves, build shelters for ourselves, unite in matrimony, and even to own pets.

We’re ruled by fear and manipulation.

Like some kind of frighteningly authoritarian parent, they assure us that it’s for our own safety, these breaches in our independence and that we must comply or face the consequences.  They ground us by taking away our licenses. They send us to our rooms that just happen to be located in for-profit prisons. They don’t “allow” us to pursue life, liberty, and happiness because once we taste that sweet freedom, we won’t want to be under their oppressive thumbs anymore.

But some of us have seen the corporate government for what it is: a bully that reigns through fear of reprisal and grievous harm. They hold over us these fears:

  • We will die if we don’t eat things that were inspected and approved by them.
  • We will be jailed, fined, or have our children taken from us if we don’t toe the line, vaccinate them as ordered, medicate them as recommended.
  • We are unable to figure things out for ourselves because we are not “experts” and therefore we must suppress our own judgments and bow to their far greater knowledge.
  • We will die if we don’t follow their expert health and nutrition advice.
  • We’ll be murdered by scary foreign terrorists if we don’t allow the TSA to fondle our private parts and perform x-rays that show us naked before we fly.

Some people fear these things and believe these tales so thoroughly, they allow the government to enforce ridiculous, unconstitutional laws “for our own safety.” They say, “Better that I give up my rights as a human being and save the world from a terrorist.”

Whether you call it freedom, liberty, sovereignty, or self-governance, the point remains the same: if you’re reading this, you probably want to determine your own life, whether the result is success or failure. You want to have control over your ability to live, truly live, and not merely exist as a slave to the powers that be.

You can withdraw your consent.

When’s the last time you read – actually read – the Declaration of Independence?

Please allow me to share an excerpt.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –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, 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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Now, I’m not planning to arm up and head to Washington DC to take over Congress, but I am continuing to withdraw my consent in every way possible.

You have a natural human right to be free.

Human beings are born with natural rights, every single one of us. We have the rights to life, liberty, and property. We have the right to benefit from our own work.

And if that’s not enough, there’s a back-up. You also have constitutionally-protected right to be free.

The 13th Amendment to the Constitution abolished slavery.  This means that if you are a slave today, it’s either illegal, or you have voluntarily accepted your servitude.

Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

You have a Constitutionally protected right to be free. If you aren’t free, then revolution is your motherlovin’ duty.

This isn’t about guns blazing, militias mobilizing, and guerrilla warfare. It’s about small personal acts of independence. The way you lead your life every single day can be a personal Declaration of Independence.  By refusing to concede your natural rights, quietly and resolutely, you are performing a much-needed act of revolution.

Anyone can be part of this revolution.

Many people believe that revolution requires that they lead a march, stand in front of a crowd with a bullhorn, or form a militia. They feel like it’s a job for the Julian Assanges and James Wesley Rawleses of the world.

They’re wrong.  You don’t have to be a person with thousands of followers on Twitter and Facebook.  You don’t have to be a person with a military leadership position on your resume. You need not get yourself arrested on the steps of the White House, go to prison forever for telling an unpopular truth, or stare down a bunch of scary-looking thugs in jackboots.

But you do have to do something.

You can’t just sit there and complain unless you really are just another armchair Rambo.

The way you lead your life every single day can be an act of revolution.  By refusing to concede your natural rights, quietly and resolutely, you are performing an act of revolution. Walking the walk doesn’t always require civil disobedience or militia membership.  It requires your consistent determination not to let others infringe on your own freedom.

It doesn’t matter if you are a soccer mom from the suburbs, a college student in a dormitory, a church-going dad and husband, or a person who has found themselves homeless through the ongoing economic crisis – by living resolutely, you are performing an act of revolution.

Don’t get me wrong – we need the Julians, the militias,  and the JWRs.  We need the people who stand in protest.  We need those who expose wrongdoing.  We need the organizers, the shouters, the big personalities, and the leaders. But these are not the only ways to revolt.  If every single person was off organizing their own rally, there’d be no one left to march in it.

What it is imperative upon us to do is to find our compass and follow it.

We must make ourselves immune to control by not needing what “they” hand out.  We have to be armored against the way everyone else lives and choose our own paths.  We must stubbornly refuse to participate in the hoop-jumping that is everyday life in America.  By all of us who believe in liberty doing this, we form an army of stubborn non-participants in the status quo.

Random Acts of Revolution

The most revolutionary act is to be self-sufficient and in need of nothing that the government can provide for you in exchange for some small liberty.  This list of insurrections is by no means comprehensive.

  • Question absolutely everything you hear on the news. Always be a skeptic. All major media goes back to just a few conglomerates. Call them out.  When you see coverage that is clearly biased, take a moment to call out the media about it.  Take the time to comment on mainstream media websites and point out the unbalanced coverage.  If you use social media, share this information and post on the media outlet’s social media pages as well.
  • Get out of the banking system. By opting to “unbank” or “underbank” there is a limit to what can be easily stolen from you.  When you have physical control of your financial assets, you are not at as high a risk of losing those assets, and therefore, less likely to be dependent on “the system.”
  • Educate others.  At the (very high) risk of people thinking you’re crazy, it’s important to let people know WHY you do what you do.  If you object to a municipal policy, speak at a town meeting or send a letter to the editor of your local paper.  If you’re an activist, make a point of explaining the reasons behind your activism. But be calm and rational. By ranting incoherently or by keeping your mouth shut, you influence no one. By providing provable facts, you can open minds and awaken others.
  • Grow your own food or buy local.  Every single seed that you plant is a revolutionary act.  Every bit of food that you don’t have to purchase from the grocery store is a battle cry for your personal independence.  When you educate yourself (and others) about  Big Food, Big Agri, and the food safety sell-outs at the FDA, you will clearly see that we are alone in our fight for healthy, nutritious foods.  Refuse to tolerate these attacks on our health and our lifestyles. If you can’t grow your own food, the support local farms. You have the right to food that won’t kill you. Forget CAFOs and industrial crops sprayed with glyphosate. Go local and you’ll be feeding your family foods that are wholesome, nutritious, and unlikely to be subject to recalls like Big Food keeps launching.
  • Refuse to comply.  If you know your natural rights, which are guaranteed under the Constitution and its Amendments, then it makes it much harder for “authorities” to bully you.  You don’t have to let them search your home without a warrant, you don’t have to answer questions, and you don’t have to comply with laws that are in conflict with the Constitution. You don’t have to be aggressive or get in a fight with them. You just have to be staunch in your refusal.
  • Embrace your right to bear arms.  Be responsible for your own safety and security. 911 should not be your personal security plan. Save yourself.
  • Don’t be in debt.  No one can be free if they are in debt. If you are in debt, you are forced to work in whatever conditions are present, for whatever amount is offered, complying with whatever criteria is necessary to keep your job. As well, the high interest rates that you pay only serve to make the bankers more wealthy.  Instead of borrowing, save until you can afford something or realize that if you could actually afford it, you wouldn’t need to borrow money to have it. If you’re already in debt, this article can help you get it paid down fast.
  • Be prepared for disaster.  Have enough food, water, and supplies to take care of your family in the event of a natural disaster. Don’t expect FEMA to take care of you. (Learn more here.)
  • Be involved in your children’s education.  For some, this means homeschooling or unschooling, and for others, this means being on top of what they are learning in a formal school setting. Join the PTA and actively volunteer if your child goes to school.  Be an advocate for your child and insist that the teachers teach. If your child goes to school, supplement this at home with discourse about current events and outings that help them learn about the world around them.
  • Know that any freedom you give up, you will never get back. Remember what we lost in the “Patriot” Act and the Indefinite Detention Act (NDAA)?  Those freedoms aren’t ever coming back unless something more drastic than anything I’ve seen in my lifetime occurs.
  • Maintain your privacy. For the love of crickets, don’t be that ignorant fool who says “If I haven’t done anything wrong, I don’t have anything to worry about. You have plenty to worry about. All information can be manipulated to track you, profile you, make you look guilty, and control you. Trust me, when the social credit program rolls out here, you’ll have more to worry about than you ever imagined.
  • Stop making excuses for collaborators. The tax collectors who enforce the extortion of your money? The TSA agents who pat you down and dehumanize you? Stop trying to justify their jobs. Stop trying to make it okay.  “These agents are only doing their jobs.” They should be ashamed of themselves for having these jobs. Heck, I’ve even heard people in line at the airport thank the TSA for patting them down. F*ck that. I will not be complicit in my own slavery.

For even more ways to cease your support of a government run amok, check out 50 Ways to Starve the Beast.

As Albert Camus, a French philosopher and author said, “The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”

Get out there and be the squeaky wheel.

If you see something wrong, don’t just ignore it. Say something about it, and keep saying something until it changes.  Whether this is some process that infringes on your privacy, a job requirement that impedes your health, or another injustice, pursue it relentlessly. Ask questions publically, write letters, and use social media to bring pressure to encourage a change.

If you’re currently taking the easy way through life, if you recognize yourself as a slave, STOP. You don’t have to continue like that.

According to the Declaration of Independence,  “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

That means that you don’t have to accept the unjust laws. That means you don’t have to quietly take it, muttering under your breath that it isn’t right, but not daring to raise your voice.  That means that “they” are only in control of you if you allow it.

Independence isn’t something you celebrate one day a year. Independence is the way you live your life, every single day, refusing to submit to that which makes you beholden to or less than someone else.

There are nearly 330 million people in the United States. (source)

Only 3% of the population fought in the Revolutionary War, and 10% actively supported them.

If 9,900,000 people quietly and peacefully revolted by withdrawing their consent to be governed by tyrants we could not be silenced.

If 33,000,000 people supported those revolting, we could not be stopped.

The government might be watching us, but we can watch them right back.

Make the way you live your life a revolutionary act. Show people what freedom really means, and maybe it will catch on.

  1. Very good Independence Day message.

    The internet is full of people who can enumerate a comprehensive “list of grievances.” But there are few who can propose a practical, rational course of action to regain some lost liberties.

    Thanks!

  2. Well said. You are quoting the Declaration of Independence and not the Constitution, however. Small acts of defiance also include the power of the purse. There are numerous companies that I will not purchase from due to their ideology that I do not agree with or want my money supporting. Is it an inconvenience? Yes. But worth it knowing that I am not furthering their cause with my money. A clear conscious is true freedom. Keep up the good work.

    1. As crazy as it may sound, the stores I really do have to shop in now have fewer and fewer human cashiers and more automated checkout stands. The fact that so many shoppers have to show ID to purchase alcohol, cash a payroll check or write a personal check would seem to eliminate the need for so many automated stations, and increase the need for humans to intervene. Yet, Walmart, Kroger and affiliates (Smith’s. Smitty’s, Albertson’s ShopRite et al) and many other retailers are letting more people go. Each automated checkstand represents 3 humans that no longer have jobs. I don’t use these machines at all, no matter how long I have to stand in one of the only lines manned by a fellow human. I’ve given my position to store managers who claim to have no input on the decision that it’s made well over their heads. I don’t know what the solution is, but with more Mom n Pop stores ging belly up, we’ll all have to shop in a store with automated checkstands before long. Maybe if all of us stop using the automated stands, more people will continue to have jobs–otherwise, we’re on track to see HUGE unemployment numbers in our country, with no real relief in sight…

      1. Leonard, I can attest to the fact that the store managers have no say over what corporate ‘imposes’ on your local stores. I work for one of the ‘chains’ that you mentioned. The people who tell us how our department needs to function have likely never done our job, or if they did, it was for a short time, and in the distant past. While it is a good company to work for overall, that is my major complaint. I know it is frustrating as a consumer, but I just wanted to point that out.

  3. An accurate assessment of the current situation in “the land of the free.,” as well as some inspiring advice on how to deal with it. Just so you can correct one error, the extended excerpt is not from the Constitution but the Declaration of Independence.

  4. Yeah, some taxes are excessive & many of our rights are being eroded. However, have you looked at what your tax money is used for?

    Taxes on your house – go to city & country budgets – pay the salaries of fire, ambulance, police, school budgets, waste management.

    Taxes on your car – go to the city/county/state budget for road and roadway maintenance, plus the free service trucks on some interstates.

    Taxes to catch that fish for dinner – help pay to keep our county/state/national parks going.

    Payroll tax – goes to the social security, medicare, federal & state unemployment & disability.

    1. At the cost of a great deal of bureaucratic waste, however, and we have very little control over how that money is used.

    2. “Taxes on your house – go to city & country budgets – pay the salaries of … police, school budgets,….

      Payroll tax – goes to … medicare…”

      Yeah, that’s exactly the point.

      We don’t need bullying cops extorting us, or failing government schools, or an insolvent Medicare program which is (supposedly) in place to take care of seniors, when it is in fact designed to enrich the medical industry by looting taxpayers for seniors’ health care. A program which rarely provides true health benefits and has led the way to bankrupting our entire country.

      We can join together, VOLUNTARILY, to pay for the things we value, and not be forced to pay for terrible government services.

  5. I have thought about all of this for years. I used to work with a guy who escaped Cuba in the Mariel Boat Lift. He said in Cuba, you could not travel from one town to another without a permit. I thought of that when you mentioned having to pay to buy a tag to use the highways, and roads. The highways and roads we paid for with our taxes already. We are so removed from the freedoms we used to have that most people think you’re a radical when they read an article such as yours.

  6. It is so unfortunate that most people have absolutely NO IDEA, how privileged they are to live in the USA. I’ve travelled the world, many times – there is NO OTHER COUNTRY TO COMPARE in terms of Freedom (Illusory and limited as some of our freedoms are), tolerance (despite the breakouts of haters popping up), and OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL who embrace our land, laws and culture. (And often those who don’t, and skirt the laws, land and culture to take advantage of the unwitting)
    Thank you for writing this, it is badly needed reminders for those who have forgotten, and valuable lesson for those who weren’t taught but wish to know.

  7. Here’s some not-so-light reading on the matter of lost liberties:

    Paul Craig Roberts on how liberty has lost its protections, and why the 4th of July should be a day of mourning
    https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2019/06/28/liberty-has-lost-its-protection/

    Judge Andrew Napolitano on the myth of Independence Day
    https://www.creators.com/read/judge-napolitano/07/19/the-myth-of-independence-day

    Jeff Thomas on the shelf-life of countries, versus the “complain, but remain” crowd
    https://internationalman.com/articles/complain-but-remain/

    A worthwhile challenge would be to review the Declaration of Independence list of grievances against tyranny by the Crown of England — and try to identify ANY of those grievances that have not resurfaced under the jackboot of our own government!

    A relevant quote from the ancient Roman historian Tacitus was “the more corrupt the state, the more numerous are the laws.” In concert with that ancient wisdom is the Harvey Silverglate book (circa 2011) short-titled “Three Felonies A Day” — meaning that the average American actually breaks about three statutory felony laws on a daily basis. It’s little different from Stalin’s chief of the secret police, Lavrenty Beria, who is reputed to have said “Show me the man, and I’ll find you the crime.”

    We live in a covert empire in which the IRS can instantly disable your passport, no matter where you are in the world, and per an obscure sentence in the 2008 farm bill, can go back for as many years as they want in hunting for a possible vulnerability in your tax history. That puts you in the “esteemed” company of murderers, war criminals or those who lie to the courts”, all of whom have zero statutes of limitation on their offenses. They also lay claim to a portion of your earnings no matter where on earth you may be working. This is the sole “major” power on earth with that global mandate.

    One tiny gotcha is that if the IRS has stolen from you, per a document I saw lately from a local law firm about such matters, you can only go back two years to recover such plunder from you.

    We also live in a country in which the 10-point communist manifesto of Karl Marx is nearly completed.

    A complete listing and discussion of all such liberties we’ve lost would be overwhelming, so I’ve chosen just one to illustrate the process by which one example liberty was gained, made widespread, and then almost completely squashed by the power-obsessed government. That sacred right was that of a jury to pass judgment on the criminal law being applied. If in the jury’s opinion that law was either unjust, or if it was legitimate but being applied unconscionably, the jury had the right to render a non-precedent-setting verdict of not guilty. Today the little known Fully Informed Jury Association tries to keep knowledge of that sacred right alive, but anyone who dares to pass out pamphlets describing that right in the sidewalk outside a courthouse … is frequently arrested and charged bogusly with “jury tampering.”

    So where did that right come from? When William Penn was charged for preaching Quakerism on English streets in 1670 without a license from the Crown, the jury foreman and several indignant jurors were thrown into prison for refusing to convict. When the Crown finally gave in, and those jurors were freed, the principle of jury nullification was established as a sacred right of Englishmen. Here in the American colonies in 1734, John Peter Zenger printed some truthful criticism about the governor of colonial New York, and was charged with libel.

    After the jury refused to convict him, the principle was set in place throughout the American colonies that a jury had the final word — NOT the courts and NOT the Crown. As the result, as English laws became more and more oppressive, colonial juries responded in defense. The concept of trial by a jury of your peers became most sacred. The Crown rebelled at such losses and began hauling the accused to either Canada or England for trial in a court that would guarantee the guilty verdict. This became one of the prime grievances in our Declaration of Independence.

    The achievement of jury nullification rights after our Revolution was so sacred that it was a requirement until the mid-1890s for any criminal court judge to disclose that right to every jury. Examples of the use of that right included cases involving the Fugitive Slave law in the pre-Civil War era.

    In more modern times, jury nullification helped bring an end to our 1920s Prohibition Amendment. Today, some medical marijuana trials have turned out the same way. And yet, you’ll find no government monopoly school’s textbooks that ever mention that historic right of jury nullification. Not surprisingly, governments bent on never-ending wars and global empire have little use for citizen rights, but only for their rules of subjects.

    The Paul Craig Roberts article above makes a strong case for today’s 4th of July to be truthfully labeled a day of mourning over most of the Declaration’s rights we’ve lost.

  8. You can never be free if you have obligations of specific performance to government. Property taxes are modern feudalism.

  9. I love this message! It’s very good to read it especially on today of all days. Small question, though. When you said “Make the way you live your life a revolutionary act. Show people what freedom really means, and may it will catch out.” did you mean “maybe it will catch on,” a the end there? If so I know how flying fingers can be on a keyboard. Great work, and keep it up!

  10. Daisy, this is by FAR my favorite of all your blog posts. Well-timed, also, being published on Independence Day. I hope this is shared widely and “goes viral.”

    I want to add another item to your list of ways that people can rebel: refuse to join “loyalty programs.”

    So-called “loyalty programs” are ways in which the corporations with which you do business monetize/enslave you by collecting the minute data of your life (when you shop, where you shop, how you pay for your purchases, WHAT you purchase and when, etc.) and then sell that data to corporations which aggregate all that data and use AI to make educated guesses about you.

    These guesses include to what political party you belong, with whom you socialize, where you might be on any given day at any particular time, and many more such highly personal details. You wouldn’t want to GIVE those details to the creepy types who buy that data, so don’t give it to them through “loyalty” programs.

    One way to get around the programs which coerce you to join by extorting much higher prices for non-members (ahem, Safeway, ahem…) is to obtain a loyalty card without giving them any information about who you are. Obtain more than one for each merchant, and use them randomly. Really mess up their data, and make sure there’s nothing (including the plastic with which they hope you pay) to tie your purchases back to you as a living breathing human being.

    Doing this may cause you to miss out on their “points” or “rewards,” but you won’t be missing out on much, and will be retaining your privacy, dignity and future freedom options.

  11. Great Post! Our Government of the Country I love, is not the same as it was when I was younger. ( That’s been a long time ago). Even though we have so many people from other countries who are are living here who want to change our cultures and laws, I still believe We are still out there. We are still out there working our everyday jobs, taking care of our kids and parents, etc. We have got to come together like you said or we will lose this country.

  12. I always look forward to your 7/4 posts and I was not disappointed with this year’s. I will be sharing this.

    One point that I think could have been made in connection with all of these licenses that you list. Some of them are “merely” revenue collection programs. And that is bad enough. But others are more insidious.

    For example, health care professionals’ licenses are also instruments of control. They are a lever that states use to create and maintain the medical cartel we suffer under today. So, for example, a doctor who speaks out against vaccines, or does not abide by the CDC schedule, is at risk for losing his license. The FDA issues its licenses which determine which therapeutics are legally legitimate and which ones are not. And the Patent office issues its licenses, which provide corporations a coercive monopoly and legalized price gouging.

  13. Daisy,

    I’m Sick-Of-It too, Daisy. Yep, I’m in the same boat with a lot of people…I’m debt free, I have no payments…house, cars etc, etc all paid for. And yet, I still have to pay rent to the state in the form of property taxes ad nauseum or “those people” will come knockin on my door.

  14. Idea for Conservatives to “Go Galt!”

    Conservatives throughout the USA can adjust their tax withholding from the normal one or 2 to 6, 7 or 8. No Taxes will be taken out. This can be a protest against the deep-state for their Coup against Trump. The people who do this can take that extra money and put it into silver and gold and when they have to pay the tax bill later hopefully Silver and gold will have gone up. The DS doesn’t care about peasant protests… they do care about money. This would be an easy way for people to protest and have an effect. They would have to cover it in the media. 10-20-30 millions Christians, Constitutionalists, libertarians, Patriots…etc all withhold funds (funds used against us).

    I was listening to the common sense show and this one episode (19 May 2019 / hr 3) was with Doug Hagmann. Doug was right in that we conservatives can’t get out and protest like the Antifa ‘Muppet heads’ (he used that phrase…. I love it) because we carry the freight. We work and have responsibilities. We pay for them to try and destroy us. HOW ABOUT WE WITHHOLD THAT CASH? True the FED can print to oblivion. True the bill comes due April 15th 2020… but what a stir it would create. This isn’t against Trump or his admin. I am a Trump supporter and 10 year US ARMY vet. This is against the Deep-state trying to take him down and if nothing else, to show our support for the President… 30 million patriots Starving the Beast! The John Galts of the USA withhold their cash!!!

  16. To: Tyler Durden. Please contact me, My Name is Mark. I liked your Column about independence. I will make this short and to the point. You are the first person I have seen to get this information out main stream. I have 187 IQ and know more about law than the so called Judges on any Admiralty bench in America State or Federal. I can answer any legal or lawful question and can give you facts on the whole system with no financial motive. I have been a non BAR Lawyer and legal researcher for 15 years. Everything is a lie and a fraud This one example will blow your mind.
    Citizenship of any kind is a legal disability and a fraud!! You can not have Citizenship without a body politic which is duty of allegiance in exchange for a duty of protection. There is no duty of protection, My political status is Sovereign American any other is treason. I do not mean the term Sovereign citizen no such thing as a virgin Whore. A US CITIZEN is property of US GOV and a ward of the state with no rights. Write me the truth must be told thank you for your Column. I can give a rational course of action to regain all lost liberties.Mark
