Anything You Want

The federal government has faithfully collected tax dollars from me for over 40 years now. And, in addition to the 17 duties that it was limited to in the Constitution, it has seen fit to shovel billions of dollars to hostile countries overseas, to build turtle tunnels under major roadways that no turtle would touch, and to gererate copious quantities of liturature.

My tax dollars have been used to study and creat literature on scads of topics, all of which could have also been picked up at a local library, bookstore, and for many years now, also searched out free online.  The government has researched and generated pamphlets on all about how to build a raised bed vegetable garden, which would be useful if the government failed in its duty to protect free enterprise and quashes the free market here in this country and destroys my ability to go out and buy vegetables on my own.  They have generated pamphlets on all about  how to build a nuclear bomb shelter, which would be useful if the government has failed in its duty to protect the country against an attack and I am left to  fend for myself in a nuclear winter.

But there is no sign of a pamphlet that tells me how to discern that my government has become too oppressive and tyrannical and how and when to go about defending myself against that.  No paragraphs written that tell me when to give up on an electoral progress that does nothing to stop the escalating indebtedness of the country and the destruction of our currency and the equity of our savings.  There is no handout that tells me how to go about taking up arms to defend myself and my countrymen from a government that is deaf to the “confusion of the multitude” that Madison was so worried about and saw as one of the biggest threats to my freedom.  The government has come out with a much argued list fo arms that are not acceptable and not useful for the purpose of defending my home and my freedom.  Where is the listed instructions on what arms ARE useful to defend against a government that is mortgaging American’s future and the future of their children.  What sized magazine is necessary to do that?  What about a brochure of the steps that ARE necesary to defend freedom from a federal government that is trying to control everything?

They have handouts and brochures printed on everything I want.  Just not what I need..

    Good piece. And no manuals or pamphlets to score the effectiveness of government to perform its Constitutional duties. If we use the election system for that, it clearly does not work.

    Thank you. Much appreciated.
    Confusion of the multitude. Even worse thatn the tyrrany of the faction. Republics only are of a certain size. 10-20,000 pepople per representative by the guestimations of some of the smartest of the Founding guys. And they were not just pretty bright, they were pretty well studied, back when an 8th grade education was much more intense than a high school level today. Above that size, like we have now, with 40 times that maximum, you get something that doesn’t have a label, but it’s not a republic. And our version isn’t a federation either.
