Wow, this is insanity, because from where I sit we are against criminal actions.
If we are against criminal actions, then we cannot commit them, to stop them.
What laws have I written?
At least not yet.
I have however, studied law, policy, procedure, protocol, all things that make me able to say the things I say, it as well make me able to say I am
not a criminal.
As stated in my other thread, where you disagreed, this is not some game.
There is no tally board where the Elite will score and we will score.
If we do not actually get involved, with changing the laws, we are as guilty as they are, because we ignored our rights to represent ourselves.
If the law is just to keep us enslaved as you suggest then you are a slave.
I am no slave.
And conditioned to accept their law?
I think not.
I just know law is merely a guide of actions which are acceptable which are not.
Yes, it is our duty to expose those crimes, but not via committing more crimes.
Exposing them and doing it in a way which keeps you on the right side of law are important, if you roam into breaking the law, you have become as they
There is zero secrecy to what Government does if you understand law.
Understanding Government is about as simple as a playground in 3rd Grade.
Government is not the teachers, it is not the children, it is the entire playground.
And the school.
And the Administrative heads of authority.
If a parent disagrees with a School's Administration they go to the P.T.A., right?
Do you see a parent breaking into the school office to get files?
Again, as suggested before, a non-profit and policy think-tank is the way to go.
Not committing criminal actions.
Again, there is zero secrecy, if you study Government.

Murray Weidenbaum has been a visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a speaker
at meetings at the Brookings Institution, the Cato Institute, and the Heritage Foundation and has also written for their publications, and served as a
reviewer of ongoing studies.
In The Competition of Ideas, Weidenbaum examines the political economy of these vital institutions, drawing heavily on several decades of involvement
in their activities.
He is uniquely able to see their accomplishments as well as their shortcomings.
Because of the importance of the activities of their organizations, and their tax-exempt status, think tanks are held to a high standard.
Weidenbaum shows that sometimes think tanks are more tank than think - major think tanks are often predictable in the positions they take on public
issues and are far better at analyzing the shortcomings of other elements of society than of their own operations.
The overarching issue of quality control, Weidenbaum holds, deserves more attention than it has attained in the think tank world.
This book presents a careful, balanced account of where think tanks have been and where thay are now headed.
Given the high levels of professionalism in many think tanks, a fundamental change in the attitude of their management is important.
The compelling need is less for the wielder of policy than for the lucid synthesizer of relevant research and analysis.
Likewise, society needs sensitivity to the long-term concerns of the citizenry more urgently than rapid response to the opportunities of the moment.
Future competition, particularly among the major think tanks, could well be centered, not on achieving greater visibility, but on developing responses
to economic, environmental, and national security problems that are likely to be adopted and carried out.
Murray Weidenbaum is Edward Mallinckrodt Distinguished University Professor of Economics at Washington University in St. Louis and Honorary Chairman
of the Weidenbaum Center on the Economy, Government and Public Policy.

The Cult of the
Presidency: America's Dangerous Devotion to Executive Power
Amazon Review :
The Bush years have given rise to fears of a resurgent Imperial Presidency.
Those fears are justified, but the problem cannot be solved simply by bringing a new administration to power.
In his provocative new book, The Cult of the Presidency, Gene Healy argues that the fault lies not in our leaders but in ourselves.
When our scholars lionize presidents who break free from constitutional restraints, when our columnists and talking heads repeatedly call upon the
"commander in chief " to dream great dreams and seek the power to achieve them--when voters look to the president for salvation from all problems
great and small--should we really be surprised that the presidency has burst its constitutional bonds and grown powerful enough to threaten American
The Cult of the Presidency takes a step back from the ongoing red team/blue team combat and shows that, at bottom, conservatives and liberals agree on
the boundless nature of presidential responsibility.
For both camps, it is the president's job to grow the economy, teach our children well, provide seamless protection from terrorist threats, and
rescue Americans from spiritual malaise.
Very few Americans seem to think it odd, says Healy, "when presidential candidates talk as if they're running for a job that's a combination of
guardian angel, shaman, and supreme warlord of the earth."
Healy takes aim at that unconfined conception of presidential responsibility, identifying it as the source of much of our political woe and some of
the gravest threats to our liberties.
If the public expects the president to heal everything that ails us, the president is going to demand--or seize--the power necessary to handle that
Interweaving historical scholarship, legal analysis, and trenchant cultural commentary, The Cult of the Presidency traces America's decades-long
drift from the Framers' vision for the presidency: a constitutionally constrained chief magistrate charged with faithful execution of the laws.
Restoring that vision will require a Congress and a Court willing to check executive power, but Healy emphasizes that there is no simple legislative
or judicial "fix" to the problems of the presidency.
Unless Americans change what we ask of the office--no longer demanding what we should not want and cannot have--we'll get what, in a sense, we
