We now see the utter daftness of the Obama Supreme Court appointments. After listening to an hour or so of the arguments, my suspicions were confirmed that anyone associated with Obama would have to be first an ideologue and second a bit on the dim side of the table. One quality works with the other, without intellectual agility one is unable to present their ideology in a rational manner with compelling arguments.
The surprise for me is that I thought Obama's Solicitor General would be the smartest person in the room, with the previously referenced intellectual agility. On the whole I became alarmed at the idea that, perhaps, these people really were stupid and not working toward any higher plane, a vision that my feeble mind is unable to conceive of, but that they simply desire power and control and rely on the shallowness and corruptibility of the American public to achieve it.
Basically, their argument comes down to "here is free stuff, who doesn't like free stuff?" Yikes! But, here we see the absolute need to defeat this political virus, one which seems to have read de Tocqueville and took from him not the warnings and predictions as something to be guarded against, but found the method of destroying the American system.
In a comment to another post a reader wondered what would happen if Obamacare is defeated, having become the focal point for a post called "One Single Line" that line being the Supreme Court finding Obamacare constitutional as I suspected would happen. Does that one single line, around which all of us can rally, disappear and leave us without momentum, without inspiration? Yes, it does.
It does not mean that the Liberty Movement stalls and is incapable of achievements, but it stalls the support we might have received from the greater community. There is no way to deny that.
The reality is this: no movement can move without a point around which to rally. There was the Boston Massacre for the American Revolution, followed by other injustices. The point of the Liberty Summit, in conjunction with other PatComs being held around the nation (the one in Georgia this weekend and the one in North Carolina on the weekend of the Summit) is to start the resistance, actions which call out the federal government and challenge its right to deny our rights. They are to call attention to the many injustices of the past and give future injustices a history.
The Hutaree dismissal was a win for the movement. There are those who are able to recognize that political opposition is not criminal, that speech in and of itself is not a crime. There are no plans to overthrow this government anywhere in the Liberty Movement. To the contrary, the point of the Liberty Movement is to reinstate the government, to take it back from those who have corrupted it and violated the charter. To this end I have maintained that I cannot commit a crime while this is my intent, no matter how arduously I pursue it.
Now, anyone will tell you that they would not rely on that argument in a court of law. Which court? The one supported by this criminal endeavor of a federal system? Make no mistake, I don't expect to go free, I expect to be held prisoner, demanding POW status. Is that whistling in the wind? Sure, but if one is dedicated to their actions, understands the consequences and pursues at all times the righteousness of their acts, they will act with resolution. When one allows the enemy, in this case the corrupt government, to define their actions as criminal, they have lost the battle going in. The violation of an illegal law is not a crime, it is a duty.
We were taught in the military, not long after the end of the Vietnam War, that we are not absolved of criminal actions if we obeyed an illegal command. Neither are they.
The house of tyranny has been built by rulings in the Supreme Court. Listening to the arguments it is easy to see how previous violations of the Constitution were approved by the court and now used by another political ideology to justify their violations. On and on it goes. There is no end to oppression once started and provided as a precedent. We are lost. There is no way to unwind the entanglements that have led us to this. The battle must still be fought, but without the court ruling Obamacare constitutional it will have to be fought without the support of the sports and fashion crazed public. As you were.
Today I urge the reader to attend one of the many PatComs being held near you, convince others to attend with you. Nothing is so important now than to grow this community, to be able to operate without the support of the general public, they were never on our side anyway, but learn to recognize those in your AO who would like to attend such a gathering. At the Summit we will begin to formulate actions that can be taken and ways to put those actions in a context that will rally the like-minded to our cause of restoring what has been stolen, argued out of existence by elitist attorneys and justices.
Our moment is yet to come to bring down the house of tyranny.
