Open letter to American politicians: Act now for freedom and Liberty

Warren “Bones” Bonesteel

Open letter to American politicians:

Nearly 130 million Americans voted in the November 2008 elections. 46% of them
voted against Obama and the Democrats while another 6 million Americans
stayed home in ‘protest’ against being once again forced to vote for the
‘lesser of two evils.’ That amounts to more than 65 million Americans.
According to simple mathematics and to a plain and simple reading of the
Constitution, neither party has ever had any sort of a ‘mandate’ to do
anything  to subvert The Constitution of the United States. Yet, this is what
both parties have done for more than eighty years, and arguably for more than
a hundred years.

Although there are many and several issues that politicians from both parties
have cocked up, let’s look at a single contemporary political and public
policy issue and address that in the simplest terms possible. This is just
one item of many that the DHS, President Obama, liberal Democrats and
‘moderate’ Republicans have used to identify “right-wing extremists” in
America who are also known by those same politicians and government entities
as “domestic terrorists” and as “potential domestic terrorists.”

By many accounts, more than 50 million *households* in America own more than
300 million guns and rifles. Most of those gun owners are American citizens
who are registered Republicans, Democrats, Independents and Libertarians. In
total, that amounts to well over one hundred million Americans who either own
a gun or rifle or who quite willingly live in a home with a gun owner. That’s
an awful lot of “extremists” and “crackpots” and “bitter gun-owners.” The
families of most of these gun owners are also well-trained in gun safety
procedures and in the proper and timely use of those guns and rifles.

Judging by the Plain Meaning Rule and by any honest and objective
interpretation of the U.S. Constitution – and of most state constitutions –
those Americans have every legal and moral right to possess and own those
guns and rifles, with or without government approval. By an objective,
rational and honest reading, and according to many public and private records
handed down by the Founding Fathers, individual and private American citizens
actually have a right to own military grade-weaponry, again, without the
permission or approval of the state or federal governments. This
constitutionally enumerated legal and moral right to gun ownership was not
for the purposes of hunting or of ‘sportsmanship.’ Many of the founding
fathers openly state – several times each – that this was solely intended as
a provision to keep our government in check.

50 million Americans – and their families – are not insane right-wing
extremists or domestic terrorists or potential domestic terrorists. Only a
tyrannical government would label them as such in spite of what the
Constitution openly and plainly states. As a matter of fact, those gun owners
are all quite mainstream. More than one in three Americans either own guns or
safely, securely and freely live in a household with a gun owner. Chances are
extremely high that you work with more than one gun owner. You socialize with
them. You trade birthday gifts and holiday cards with them. They live like
you do. They eat like you do. They dress just like you do. They go to the
same schools, churches, restaraunts, malls, stores, colleges and universities
that you do. Your children know and play with their children. If their cars
and SUVs don’t have bumper stickers or if their t-shirts, suits and dresses
don’t openly display their pride and freedom in their gun ownership, you
simply cannot pick them out of a crowd.

In any case, insulting and attempting to marginalize 50 million American
families who own guns sounds like a very dangerous political and social
strategy. Especially as they are now – privately and Constitutionally –
owners of several billion rounds of ammunition to use in those guns and
rifles.

You need to re-think your strategy and tactics, Mr. and Mrs. Honorable State
and Federal Politician. You have created the very thing that your speeches,
duties and oaths  claim that you are against: A government of tyranny.  Both
historically and in contemporary times, a tyrannical government has always
led to an open rebellion.

Keep in mind that in our founding documents, when government abuses and
ursurpations have intruded upon their right to their own lives, liberties and
their individual pursuit of happiness, American citizens retain the legal and
moral right to overthrow their government.

You are the political leaders of America. The blood of innocent and guilty
alike will be upon your hands and upon your hands alone. You alone have led
yourselves, your friends, families, America and the world to this moment in
history.

I, personally, do not want to see the world burn, but it is almost too late
for you to change America’s course. You must act now, for freedom and
liberty, before it is too late.

My point being, that according to the objective evidence in one subject alone,
you, as the political leaders representing a tyrannical American government,
simply cannot win. Additional resources revealing numerous other points of
failure in your current position are herein enclosed for your convenience and
edification.

Choose liberty. Choose freedom. Choose life and peace for all of our sakes.

(Disclosure: I am not a gun owner. Constitutionally – ethically and morally –
it’s really none of your damned business whether I have one or not.)

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.

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to
dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to
assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which
the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the
opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel
them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that
they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among
these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these
rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from
the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes
destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to
abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such
principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most
likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate
that Governments long established should not be changed for light and
transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are
more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves
by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train
of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a
design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is
their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their
future security.

Why Susan Boyle? Nearly three hundred million people have seen her

in what is ostensibly a free and open Western society. They are questioning
the every foundations of a culture and society that makes it nearly
impossible for an indivudal to succeed. A culture and society that is led by
people like yourselves.
