Government, that is. Do you need it?
I'm sure that if I said that I do not need it, a tsunami of dot-gov pain infliction would ensue. Immediately after one branch of guvmint delivered a busload of recently-incarcerated felons at my driveway, another branch would begin demolishing a "state" road. A third would fine me for environmentally unsustainable noncompliance regarding my greenhouse. The 4th branch, operating on the presumption that my "rights" are gifts from my government, claim that by refusing government I've abdicated my rights to property and self-preservation, and they therefore must take my legal tender and weaponry. The fifth branch imprisons me for hate speech, when I voice my displeasure regarding the convicts.
If I were to withdraw my consent, would I be free to just go?
Thought exercise...if South Carolina had been allowed to peaceably exit the Union, would there have been a War of Northern Aggression? Which other states would also secede? Certainly not North Carolina, since they were forced into secession by the Union's insisting she send her sons to fight against the perceived "rebellion", n'est ce pas?
This is the best video I've seen on the value of "our Republic" and voting. And, I think it may also be the best video I've posted.
And, I'll be ordering this book by Larken Rose (not that I'll subscribe to his theological bent).
