What Do We Do When the Government is Lawless?
4-23-20, * -- A lawless government requires that free-men become criminals. Even a cursory study of history would give one the feeling that we have been here before. The Constitution of the United States does not grant anyone rights. It clearly spells out limitations of the AUTHORITY of government. “Congress shall make no law” is a harness on Congress, not a bounce-pass to the courts. Enumerated powers are restrictions on wanna-be tyrants masquerading as government officials. In several states the sacred vote of the people is now being done by mail [without citizens’ lawful request]. This is a dangerous time for liberty in America.
Let’s put aside the supposed dangers of the invisible Wuhan Flu that is creeping from business to business all across America and take a hard look at the government over-reach that is destroying our nation.
My entire life I have been told that we are a nation of laws and that no one is above the law. Both of those statements no longer ring true with the introduction of a soft martial law quietly imposed on law-abiding American citizens. Attorney General William Barr recently called it “house arrest” in a rare candid statement from another non-elected public official. Have you ever stopped and considered how many “appointed” public servants were actually manipulating your life? Who hired Dr. Anthony Fauci? Who voted Dr. Deborah Birx into office and where in the name of Thomas Jefferson did they get the authority -->
<-- to destroy the financial lives of literally MILLIONS of law-abiding American citizens? [However, President Trump has allowed it, Dave. – Ed.]
This debate is not about a virus, wearing a mask, shelter in place, wash your hands regularly or social distancing. It is not about how your actions may or may not put a fellow citizen in a life-threatening situation. It is not about whether you love or hate President Trump. Or whether you support the donkey [Democrat party symbol] or the elephant [Republican party symbol] and it certainly isn’t about “choosing” which Americans live or die. [..snip]
Does the government have the AUTHORITY to FORCE you to surrender your liberties? Even today, this same government that is so concerned about the “life” of others, continues to turn a blind eye to the millions of unborn children whose lives are directly affected by the unhealthy and selfish decisions of their mothers [who legally kill them in abortion even up to full term day of normal delivery-Ed.]. The nanny state is constantly restricting your rights under the guise of YOUR health and safety as the do-good policy wonks pretend to have your best interests at heart when they order you to:
Look folks, no government can guarantee a person’s safety. Risk is the Siamese twin of liberty. You cannot save the one without killing the other.
Laws simply PUNISH behavior, not prevent it
The whole idea of liberty is that we are all free to make individual choices. Hopefully, our laws go a long way in mitigating calamity, but there is no such thing as a guarantee of freedom from non-preventative risk:
The issue is not whether the draconian efforts to stop the spread of the virus is a good thing, but rather does the government have the legal AUTHORITY to DEMAND people’s compliance. We are seeing citizens being arrested for simply violating a health order, even if there is no evidence that that person even HAD, let alone SPREAD, the virus to someone else.
How about if the government decides that old people are spreading the disease? What if they demand all medication withheld from people over 60? Are we to follow that edict as well? -->
<--Do we sacrifice Grandpa because some government hack determines it is the “right” thing to do?
Values matter. That’s why we need laws. Forcing someone to “do the right thing” sounds like a good thing until we realize that not everyone operates off of the same set of values. The lunatic Gov of Michigan thinks Planned Parenthood abortion mill is making America great, while going to church is a health risk.
What do we do when the government DEMANDS that you take a vaccine? Do they have the AUTHORITY to demand you inject that concoction into your arm? What if you can’t travel, or work, or leave your home without one? [Or go to college without one?-Ed] Whatever happened to ‘MY BODY MY CHOICE’ [as the abortion lobby proclaims-Ed.]? Are citizens required to obey such a clearly un-Constitutional order?
When it's all said and done the greatest tragedy of this whole escapade will be the realization of how willingly Americans bowed their knees to unlawful government. There's no nice way to say it; it grieves me to see how few people are really able to think critically.
“Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.”
