I've had the opportunity to see the truth and changed my views to reflect these truths I have uncovered wherever they were to be found. Over the past few years I've studied the issues, the news sources, the political parties, the politicians, the bureaucratic mess we call law, and the founding documents including the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. Our elected officials are out of control funded by corporate donations in turn for corporate bailouts and instead of repealing law to get us out of this mess we get the Patriot Act, Medicare Part D, and Obamacare. Instead of cutting government, both parties argue over some miniscule reduction in future spending increases called the Sequester with one party wanting more taxes and the other more war.
Just about every bill of right we esteem has been grossly violated. We don't have pure freedom of speech, freedom of religion, right to bear arms, protection from warrantless searches, and rights are not retained by the people nor the states.
We live in a state where the government steals our property every day (taxation); creates endless war and bullies other nations disallowing them to defend themselves with the same weapons we have; doesn't allow us to hold signs of protest in front of the President; censors sex in the bedroom with gays, prostitutes, and polygamists; regulates everything people want to take into their body from peyote and marijuana to raw milk and soda pop; stops citizens from travel at checkpoints and airports including subjecting non-suspects to nude body scanners and molestation; reserves the right to wage war and kill without trial its own citizens through drone attacks. The list is legion; it is comparable to the list Jefferson made when he justified the overthrow of the tyranny of England in the Declaration of Independence. Indeed we as a people have suffered a long train of abuses designed to reduce us under absolute despotism.
I do not advocate a violent course. I admire Ghandi and encourage my fellow citizens to never ever give your consent to these tyrants. Decry and expose the tyranny of the United States. History will look back and wonder why we accepted this despotism and consented to the deprivation of our and our neighbors' liberty.
For me, showing my rejection of consent means I'm through with flying the flag and pledging my allegiance to this awful abyss of tyranny we call the USA. If the government lacks my consent, then according to the Declaration of Independence, it has lost the moral authority over me and indeed it has! Think about it: would you pledge your allegiance to the tyrannical empires represented by the swastika or the hammer & sickle? Would you march under the Roman standard & aquila or wear the headress of an Aztec king of a bloodthirsty nation? God forbid save under duress or torture.
Twister Sister got it right. Just apply the words to the government:
