“Shall I tell you what the real evil is? To cringe to the things that are called evils, to surrender to them our freedom, in defiance of which we ought to face any suffering.” — Lucius Annaeus Seneca, c. 4 BC – 65 AD http://www.brainfly.net/html/seneca.htm —–

Beyond Conspiracy: Police State America.

First, enclosed below, you’ll find links to the Declaration of Independence and The US Constitution as well as to letters and commentary by the Founding Fathers. There is also a link to a copy of your state’s constitution. Also enclosed below are government references and resources, including links to the texts of bills and laws along with references to related material. The factual and objective narrative is completed herein through the reference to news reports and articles as well as links to related commentary. As extensive as this list might at first appear, for all practical purposes, using this means to share a complete documentation of all the relevant data would be impossible.

In compiling this information I didn’t use a single reference to FISA (Public Law 95-511), The Patriot Act (H.R. 3162) or to our “evil, alien Lizard Overlords.” The facts tell their own stories quite well, all by themselves. In the real world, in spite of our assumptions to the contrary, the Constitution, as President Bush once stated, is just another – ahem – piece of paper. President Obama has called it ‘…a flawed document.” Whether you are left or right of the aisle, whether you consider yourself to be ‘red’ or ‘black’ or ‘brown’ or ‘white’ or even green with purple polka-dots, be sure to see who sponsored each bill…and then see exactly who voted for it. In any case, this is no longer about political or religious affiliations or about social or fiscal ideologies. It is about freedom.

Legal definition. http://www.yourdictionary.com/law/plain-meaning-rule http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Literal_rule A rule that states if a written provision is in writing and appears on reading to be unambiguous, its meaning must be determined from the writing itself without resorting to outside evidence. ===== 5.) Habeas Corpus. Definition. http://habeascorpus.net/hcwrit.html Habeas Corpus is an ancient common law prerogative writ – a legal procedure to which you have an undeniable right. It is an extraordinary remedy at law. Upon proper application, or even on naked knowledge alone, a court is empowered, and is duty bound, to issue the Extraordinary Writ of Habeas Corpus commanding one who is restraining liberty to forthwith produce before the court the person who is in custody and to show cause why the liberty of that person is being restrained. Absent a sufficient showing for a proper restraint of liberty, the court is duty bound to order the restraint eliminated and the person discharged. Habeas Corpus is fundamental to American and all other English common law derivative systems of jurisprudence. It is the ultimate lawful and peaceable remedy for adjudicating the providence of liberty’s restraint. ===== 6.) Bill of Attainder. refer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_of_attainder A bill of attainder (also known as an act or writ of attainder) is an act of legislature declaring a person or group of persons guilty of some crime and punishing them without benefit of a trial. ===== 7.)

HOWARD ===== 61.) quotes. a.) “Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against—then you’ll know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We’re after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you’d better get wise to it. There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be enforced nor objectively interpreted—and you create a nation of law-breakers—and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr Rearden, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.” – “Atlas Shrugged,” Ayn Rand, 1957. b.) Unjust laws exist: shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once? Men, generally, under such a government as this, think that they ought to wait until they have persuaded the majority to alter them. They think that, if they should resist, the remedy would be worse than the evil. But it is the fault of the government itself that the remedy is worse than the evil. It makes it worse. Why is it not more apt to anticipate and provide for reform? Why does it not cherish its wise minority? Why does it cry and resist before it is hurt? Why does it not encourage its citizens to put out its faults, and do better than it would have them? – Henry David Thoreau, “Resistance to Civil Government.” 1849. http://eserver.org/thoreau/civil.html c.) “To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph Milligan, April 6, 1816 http://tinyurl.com/dlo754 ===== 62.) “The Social Contract” by Jean Jacques Rousseau http://www.constitution.org/jjr/socon.htm 63.) “The Rights of Man” by Thomas Paine http://www.ushistory.org/Paine/rights/ 64.) “On Liberty” by John Stuart Mill, 1859 http://www.bartleby.com/130/ ===== 65.) quotes. a.) “The spirit of the times may alter, will alter. Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless. A single zealot may commence persecutor, and better men be his victims. It can never be too often repeated that the time for fixing every essential right on a legal basis is while our rulers are honest and ourselves united. From the conclusion of [their] war [for independence, a nation begins] going down hill. It will not then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves but in the sole faculty of making money, and will never think of uniting to effect a due respect for their rights. The shackles, therefore, which shall not be knocked off at the conclusion of [that] war will remain on [them] long, will be made heavier and heavier, till [their] rights shall revive or expire in a convulsion.” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia Q.XVII, 1782 http://etext.virginia.edu/toc/modeng/public/JefVirg.html b.) “In the highest antiquity, the people did not know that there were rulers. In the next age they loved them and praised them. In the next they feared them; in the next they despised them” -Lao-Tzu http://classics.mit.edu/Lao/taote.html c.) “And how we burned in the camps later thinking: What would things have been like if every operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain wether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family? Or if during periods of mass arrests people had not simply sat in thier lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall a half dozen people with axes, hammers pokers or whatever was at hand…” – Alexander Solzhenitsyn http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_Solzhenitsyn ===== 66.) http://www.thepriceofliberty.org/08/02/11/ewart.htm Violence is the Final Outcome of Government Tyranny By Ron Ewart (c) 2008 February 11, 2008 ===== 67.)
