The Constitutional Restoration of Liberty
Every now and then I like to post a reminder for Patriots to be very specific when challenging those among us who would be Masters.
"Government" is not the problem in America.
The problem is always individuals in government who abuse their authority.
Individual Americans, in every case, are the problem.
If we remove the individuals who violate the mandate of their positions, the problems facing the republic will wither and die. When people cry out that FedGov is the problem, that there is no way to remain within Constitutional means to recover Liberty, I offer a simple counter argument that not one person has ever been able to defeat: If Congress was populated by American Patriots like CA, Ken Lane, Miss V., Jim Miller, Leslie, Nurse Julie, and probably you, the injuries to the Constitution, to Natural Law, and to our Countrymen would stop because those people would not vote for any law, or to fund any program or agency, that abuses our Founding Ideals.
It really is that simple.
Can we vote our way back to genuine Liberty? Yes, we can. It is possible, but personally I think the Redskins have a better chance of winning the World Series. (See, that's funny because my Redskins don't play baseball. Some people would argue that the Redskins don't play football either. Ha! I crack myself up!)
One aspect of the Citadel project that I think will be very important is to have Patriots who make the move with us to get involved in local and state politics. If III Patriots start in lower offices such as town councils, run for mayor, accept jobs as bureaucrats in City Hall, then within those small spheres of influence III values can be asserted.
If a county has a III Sheriff and deputies, stupid laws can be ignored and not enforced. If a III Patriot gets hired as a town Permit Manager, that Patriot can simply ignore stupid statutes, such as requirements for permits to hold a yard sale, or any other foolish infringement on Natural Law. A III dog catcher can leave his mark upon this world by simply ignoring a statute that requires licenses for Fido, and in that tiny bit of defiance, Liberty grows stronger.
Town Hall by City Hall by County, and into the State House, and ultimately to the men and women we send to Washington on behalf of Idaho, we can make Liberty stronger simply by taking the power of Government and refusing to wield it improperly. Then III lawmakers can repeal or otherwise nullify bad laws. III Patriots sitting on the Bench can instruct jurors about nullification, and return the power to decide the law back into the hands of Citizens, where it belongs.
And the Bad Individuals who are removed from offices of power? Let 'em go back to California or Boston or whatever tyrannical bit of America that will have them.
If we can move 3,000 III families into a single community we can dominate local politics, either by supporting people who already live in Idaho who have good Souls, or we can pool our resources and finance our own candidates.
I believe such a course has the potential to inspire other Patriots across the country who may now feel isolated and outnumbered, dispirited and void of hope.
There is no quick fix to repeal generations of abuse by Bad People in government offices, nor is there a quick fix to halt and turn back the moral and intellectual decay that has been encouraged by Bad People for generations. The only way to accomplish a restoration of Liberty is to fight on every front, every day, until we are dead. And when we are gone, if we have raised our children properly they will continue the pursuit for themselves and their posterity.
Fight on every front. CA refers to it as the polygonal battlespace. Yes, even 2A is a Constitutional remedy to an abusive individual in Government. But let us not forget the other Constitutional weapons we possess.
One man can eat a cow, if he does so one bite at a time. One man can build a castle, if he breaks the task down to a manageable level and builds by setting one brick at a time. And Patriots can recover Liberty for ourselves and our Countrymen if we focus on replacing Bad People in government one individual at a time.
Time and momentum are enemies of this course. I remain convinced that economic Implosion is imminent. However, during and after an economic meltdown there will remain government in one form or another, and in the coming times of chaos and uncertainty, we may find our opportunity to make big gains in a short time.
But just like III Arms and the Citadel, and every other goal worth attaining, it will require hard work and it will require some of us to put our necks on the line. And it will take Patriots who have the guts to stand up and support those who put their necks on the line.
I am optimistic, because I have seen you all do exactly that. I have watched you step up and take a chance for Liberty. I watch daily as you work to reach our goals.
We've got this...
Think about it.
