I sincerely pray that many of you on my friends list understand that I am NOT an adherent of common law, since I've discovered the common law has deep roots in English common law and is "subject" oriented. When Americans separated from the mother country in 1776, we adopted Natural Law... the Laws of Nature and Nature's God as the basis of our legal system... an eternal and unchangeable set of principles that are outside the lawful scope of government manipulation and suppression.
I realize this puts me at odds with most of the so-called patriot community, but the more you discover the truth of our world the more you see the perversions of the truth, along with the vehicles used to manipulate the People to accept them. Though we were once colonies of the British Empire, we fought and won a long and arduous war to separate ourselves from the tyranny of the monarchical political system.
The document declaring our separation stated the reasons for the separation as well as the new foundation of the States that would emerge from that conflict; a foundation that was undermined shortly after the cessation of hostilities in the Treaty of Paris. Nonetheless, the America fought for in the American Revolution by the People under the principles betrayed by Congress in ratifying that Treaty of "Peace" is what I'm writing about, driving towards, and will eventually die for... not the system formed because of betrayal.
If you still believe you can fight within the system of common law and obtain lasting remedy from this corrupt perversion of the American Republic, I seriously have to wonder why you're interested in anything I have to say, since my direction is to destroy what you're filing affidavits with and paying fees to; as well as having to explain yourself every time:
- you're stopped while exercising your right to travel without permission (license) from the State;
- exercising your right to keep and bear arms without a permit or background checks and other infringements;
- improving your property without permission of the zoning boards in the form of permits and government inspections;
- working without paying extortion in the form of income taxes;
- ranching without complying with unlawful rules and fees on YOUR public land held in trust for the People;
- mining YOUR resources from both public and private land without the permission of government in the form of permits and unreasonable restrictions;
- being harassed when you don't "volunteer" for socialist programs the People have not given our consent to in the Constitution;
- being labeled terrorists and threatened by government for thinking or speaking outside the accepted government mandated norms, particularly advocating strict limitations of government power;
- living in fear of confrontation with agents of government that view the People as the enemy... every time having a very real possibility of losing the natural rights to life, liberty, and property to a State that rejects even the notion of the state being subordinate to the People who created it;
- just to name a few...
EVERY ONE of the examples listed above can and eventually will result in conflict with the State IF you live in freedom today. Personally, I abhor having to live in a constant state of conflict with a government that is supposed to be my servant for the purpose of SECURING MY NATURAL RIGHTS.
Pragmatists will tell me to simply fall in line to avoid the conflict but then I wouldn't be free, would I? The leftists twist the law like a pretzel and ignore anything that disagrees with their entitlement mentality; choosing to allow despots to define fixed law to be living and subject to the opinions of the masses at any given time. In all these perversions, government is the beneficiary at the expense of the liberty of the People.
Why do I need to declare that I'm a natural man to a corporate government that is based on fraud and subversion of the truth? Why do those wishing to be free have to face death every time they face an officer that should be defending the rights they're trampling upon? Why do the People have to comply with or answer to laws that make criminals out of people who have harmed no one?
I get it... I'm in a very small minority in America today. I don't work well with other people that compromise principle to "get things done"... I WILL NOT work with people that justify some tyranny while fighting others and I will not support anyone seeking office in government as it is constituted today, since such people cannot perform duties under the Constitution when the government they're serving under isn't under the Constitution.
It is VERY discouraging to see support for compromise and subversion of American Principles, while people fighting for the truth go begging or worse. Compromise with evil is evil, no matter what religious icon of the time says otherwise. America is falling into the abyss because Americans have bought the lie of compromise with evil; they no longer stand on principle; ridiculing and abusing those that do, calling them obstructionists or worse.
To write the truth I had to leave the diminishing gilded cage security... I can no longer take a 9 to 5 job and be free to say what the people of America NEED to hear; and I am not alone in that dilemma. There are hundreds if not thousands of Americans who have placed themselves in tenuous financial positions in order to be free of this debt-based, fraud-based, and tyrannical system so they could speak the truth; yet organizations like the NRA that have supported repeated legislative compromises of our Natural Right to keep and bear arms has more support than ever.
"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." -- Yahshua, Matthew 6:24.
Some patriots have returned to the system in some ways in order to continue eating, while others will eventually resort to living off the land and be silenced from the lack of support... It still costs to remain plugged into the grid, space rent, electricity or the means to generate it off grid, food purchased in the store, and other conveniences that allow the time to research and write.
Once I go off the grid, my writing will cease because my full day will be taken up for survival. My plan is to form a mounted nomadic Natural Law community and travel throughout the west on public land; surviving off the land and harassing the tyrants whenever the opportunity presents itself. It certainly isn't the safest course but free with the most beautiful yard in the world!
