You have quoted Endisnighe quite admirably and by his own words he does indeed appear to advocate anarchy, although his exacts words are:
"I would love to see a government of anarchy in the US, but I think the actual prospects of tyranny is more likely"
Let's be clear here, by the very definition of the word, a so called "government of anarchy" is no anarchy at all, and if we are take his words in
their full context, then the irony of them speaks clearly as governments are more prone to tyranny than anarchy any day of the week.
Now to your words:
"I am all for liberty and freedom. However, I understand that a lot of stupid people live in this country as well. Unfortunately for those of us whos
hands don't scrape the ground while we walk, they are forced to make laws to protect these Neanderthals from themselves."
You are all for freedom if it weren't for the people you declare to be stupid and Neanderthal's? Who do you think you are kidding? The Congress is
forced to make laws for stupid people? What sort of elitist nonsense is this? Who are you to decide who is stupid and who is not? Your own
admission reveals a stupidity beyond justification. You are all for freedom except for stupid people? Please. If freedom is to have any credibility
at all then surely the stupid people are as equally free under the law as those who are fortunate enough to be wiser.
You claim to stand for one who draws the line between those who call for total anarchy and those who stand for freedom, however your own words betray
you and while you attempt to quote Endisnighe as one who stands for "total anarchy" his own words do not reveal such a stance. It is your own
elitist stance where the self proclaimed intellectuals seemingly deserve more than the stupid, have some legal right to legislate against those less
privileged. However, our Constitution, the one you professed a duty towards, does not make any distinction between the intellectual and the stupid,
but insists that all people are entitled to the same due process of law.
You wanly and disingenuously apologize for believing in the Constitution of which you continually disrespect by referencing as an un-capitalized word,
yet then you turn around and willfully ignore the words of that Constitution and insist that all the people can do to reign in the government is
through voting. What sort of treasonous language is this? We the People are far more than a mere democracy where all we can do is vote. We are
those who ordained this Constitution and those we elect, those we did not elect but were appointed, all are accountable to the people, not by election
but by law!
You claim to believe in a Constitution which is no more than a document that enumerates certain prohibitions upon government and certain rights of the
people. You have also, in this thread, openly and willfully mocked the idea of rights being God granted and declared them man made. No more evidence
towards the fallibility of man exists than your own fallibility and your own contradictory terms. You profess an allegiance towards a document of
which has made undeniably clear is a government made of republican nature while you yourself proclaim the dignities of democracy. You profess to have
a love for this document but openly and publicly declare the stupid as unworthy of the same rights as you and presumably me. You publicly advocate a
government that would legislate against the stupid to protect you, and presumably I, from them.
The worst part of your rhetoric is that you keep insisting that the O.P. is advocating an overthrow of the government when what I read into his post
his a genuine and understandable frustration for an usurpation of government by those who clearly have no intentions of serving the people and would
rather profit from the "stupid" people you clearly hold in contempt, who continue to vote for these frauds.
What is astoundingly stupid is to continue down the same tired path we have gone down for almost a century now, and possibly even longer. What is
astoundingly stupid is to pretend we are nothing more than an electorate rather than those who hold the inherent political power of this country.
What is astoundingly stupid is to buy into your distractions and obfuscation and to accept your charges that the O.P. has advocated anything other
than the people taking back the government that belongs to them.
