Again, I agree. It is unfortunate a certain segment of public is advocating for unlawful violence against our fellow citizens. As you can see in my
post above, I do not agree with that mentality.
I would NOT consider those people in those news articles, part of any legitimate "sovereign citizen movement". Which, is why I think they are
misleading the public intentionally. I only use that label in quotes, because of a lack of better terminology to use. "We the People", simply is no
longer appears to be enough for others to understand.
Besides, when you get down to the nuts and bolts, I don't see how you can have a movement, when that is just simply the way it was, already.
I feel violence, and vigilantism outside the constructs of the law as it is written, is barbaric violent anarchy. Such as actions demonstrated by
those clowns in the linked articles. Also, those also taking the label, but ignoring property rights and trying to justify blatant theft of another's
property? Robbers, thieves, and a variation of anarchists as well.
Sovereignty, under Common Law, supports neither of the actions above. Those whom are peaceful liberty loving citizens, would agree. That's it. In
fact, they respect another persons rights, and will defend them more other people do in most cases. So, in my mind, both those examples are quite
antithetical and misleading, when evaluated in context correctly.
Example; "I may not agree with what you have to say, but, I will die to defend your right to say it." I agree with this. Does that make me an evil
All the constructs needed to self-correct the "system" via a civilized, lawful, peaceful, and transparent way, are already in place. No violence is
required. Absolutely none. Even former Justices, just as trapped, have told us the way to go.
We have a Jury System for a reason. *cough*. We also have other methods at our disposal. State Constitution Amendments, Constitutional Conventions,
direct propositions, etc.
For your second point.. I do not think we need to go to all the way back to the Red Scare for a modern example. Ironically, with today's date and
all, Islamophobia, is the PERFECT example of successful media fear-mongering. Media convinced the majority of people here, that EVERYONE who is
Muslim, and by extension, as only Muslims are Arab, are evil terrorists and extremists. Those evil terrorists hide under every rock, every corner,
every shadow, and will jump out like boogeymen to 'get ya', without warning... unless of course you submit to tyranny to "protect you" from the very
rights that made them hate you to begin with.
Likewise, to perpetuate that lie, the media reminds us constantly, that all Arabs want to kill you, maim you, blow you up, hate Jesus, and should
never be trusted. It has gotten so ridiculous, that alleged beheading videos are now giving the impression of being "rehearsed" and filmed, prior to
the actual act. As if someone who is about to be beheaded, would calmly help film and "practice" his own death for the glory of the camera. But, I
Now, the media is employing the same methodology of demonizing to anyone who dares claim they are Sovereign under Common Law. So, now that Common
Law, and the rights under it, are being re-recognized by more and more people looking for ways to fix the system without violence, anyone applying
things like the Bill of Rights, or, by extension, State Constitutions with their own Declarations of Rights are now wackos.
Clearly, wanting the government to rule inside the confines of the law as it is written, makes any and all of those that feel that way crazy, violent,
nutters, "misinterpreting legalese", vigilantes, anti-government, gun toting idiots, who only want to provoke violence and kill police officers.
It's a very sad state of affairs. America has forgotten her heritage. It is almost like she now hates herself.
In my humble opinion, media "newspeak", run a muck, is doing it's best to go about destroying her.
