The federal government itself is the child of the armed citizen, we the people are the parent of the child we call government. You senators are part of the child that we the people gave life to. The increasing ammount of federal encroachment into our lives indicates the need for parental corrective action. In short the federal government needs a good spanking to make it behave. One other important point needs to be made, since the constitution is the limiting document upon the government, the government cannot become greater than the granting power. That is, the searvant cannot become greater than it's master. Therefore should the chief executive or other branch of government, or all branches together act to suspend the constitution under a rule of martial law, all power granted to government would be cancelled and defer back to the granting power, that is the people. Martial law shall not be possible in this country as long as the people recognize the bill of rights as inalienable. - American Militia Commander Norman Olson
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.

Even should the people find the good sense and the courage to change the form and manner of which we are governed by, internationally there will be people who have lawful title in International Courts to not only a good deal of what we imagine we own and is ours the people’s but is in reality theirs, but we the people will owe a staggering debt to foreign powers that likewise will want it paid or compensated in some other way and we the people have no gold or silver to buy our freedom of these entanglements but merely worthless paper money attached to nothing which will be of no value to our creditors and the people who own the real wealth which is the land and the people living and forced to labor on it and service it.

They may have you fooled into thinking that you are their serf, but I know that I am not, and I will die before that changes.
Stop thinking like a piece of property.
I don't owe them anything, and if they think I do I guess it really sucks to be them. They should have made better business deals. Their outstanding debts have nothing to do with me.
