“When our opinions change, regimes fall or change. And it can happen peacefully, simply by the withdrawal of consent.”
“Ultimately, when the mass of the public says – we’re not going to be treated like this anymore – things DO change. Because the people responsible for putting us in this situation are a small minority. WE are the majority.” (Tenth Amendment Center)
No man can properly serve two masters. How many active military would continue service to the Money Power if they knew what that power was doing to their country? Are these military personnel not all in violation of their sacred oath? They might be if the Oath of Allegiance was not a fraud to begin with. If the military knew whom they serve and their Oath is a fraud, how many would continue their dishonorable behavior? Who will tell them the truth? Continue reading →
“We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

The following is based off a speech I gave at the first annual Tenth Amendment Summit in Atlanta, GA on February 26, 2010.
How can a “crazy” Californian and a “conservative” Georgian be friends? It’s simple – through the principles of ’98. In 1798, the John Adams administration signed into law that Alien and Sedition Acts, which made it a crime to publish “false, scandalous, and malicious writing” against the government or its officials. In practice, it was used to quell the freedom of speech in dissent against the sitting administration.
In the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, Thomas Jefferson responded:
“the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government”
But wait – that’s not all. He went on to say that all undelegated powers exercised by the federal government are “unathoritative, void and of no force.” And, that a “nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.” Continue reading →
INTRINSIC NATURE OF RIGHTS
I believe that only individuals have rights, not the collective group; that these rights are intrinsic to each individual, not granted by the state; for if the state has the power to grant them, it also has the power to deny them, and that is incompatible with personal liberty.
I believe that a just state derives its power solely from its citizens. Therefore, the state must never presume to do anything beyond what individual citizens also have the right to do. Otherwise, the state is a power unto itself and becomes the master instead of the servant of society. Continue reading →
A way of life was put on trial in Neillsville Wisconsin on September 23rd, in the case against Emanuel Miller Jr., having been charged under complaint for civil forfeiture because he refused to register his property under the state’s premise registration program. The morning session was devoted to the evidentiary hearing in which the state, represented by Clark Co. district attorney Darwin Zwieg and Bonnie Walksmuth, a court appointed attorney representing Emanuel Miller, presented evidence on behalf of the parties.
The afternoon session was devoted to the trial phase and concluded around 4 o’clock, at which time Judge Jon Counsell gave instructions that upon the completion of the trial transcript, there would be thirty days to file motions, fifteen days after to file rebuttals, oral arguments would occur seven days later, and then he would make his final decision.
Close to a hundred Amish were in attendance both from the local area and those who had come from other groups in a show of solidarity for Emanuel. There were three reporters and eight non-Amish present other than the witnesses for the state and defendant. Conspicuous by their absence were the representatives of the groups claiming to be fighting NAIS. The only group showing support was the Wisconsin Independent Consumers and Farmers Association (WICFA) by the presence of their president, C.J. Cordell and his wife Jessica. Continue reading →
