My friend, I just don't know what to say about the mysterious Barack Obama's past. Until he had entered the race for the Presidency, I had never
heard of him...well, I had heard of him shortly before that when there was speculation as to whether or not he would throw his hat in the ring, but I
knew nothing at all about him.
I have voted a straight Libertarian ticket for over 15 years now, so I have never really concerned myself with politicians outside of the Libertarian
party. When Obama was first elected, I remained fairly silent on the job he had done, as I just do not think it right to judge any President on the
first year in office.
Then came the passage of the so called Health Care Reform, and his involvement on that fiasco compelled me to speak my mind. Then there was the
dubious Nobel Prize awarded him. The big question as to his eligibility is an interesting mystery, but thus far, it seems to remain just that, a
mystery. A conspiracy theory, if you will.
Frankly, I do not think George W. Bush was "eligible" as President, in that I don't think the current position of POTUS is what our Constitutional
Republic is about. Even the vaunted Ronald Regan, (I man I liked very much) did more to expand government than he did to restrain it. He may of paid
lip service to limited government, but he expanded government just the same.
You know what I think? I think until recently, members of Congress loved the idea that all focus and attention has been placed on the POTUS. I think
until recently, the American people paid little to no attention to what Congress was doing. I think the American people have placed to much reverence
into what the SCOTUS thinks, and I think the American people, those who hold the inherent political power, have abdicated their own inherent political
power in favor of expedience.
Even today, a time where more and more people are becoming more active in the political process, they are doing so, out of expedience. As the song
goes; "Freedoms just another word for nothing left to lose." As more and more people have less and less to lose, it becomes more expedient to
actively work towards effective change. The problem, in my opinion, is that this change is still politics as usual, in that change is perceived as
being who we elect into office, as if the only authority we the people have is to vote.
I have heard it all too often that the mark of a free country is the ability to elect its leaders. Having experience in the military, you must have
some experience then, with the inherent dangers of following leader. If these leaders are dynamic leaders, they are leaders as dangerous as Napoleon,
Hitler and Stalin, or Roosevelt, Nixon, Clinton, and now Obama.
Dynamic leaders are a product of an ignorant populace. The more ignorant the populace, the more likely a dynamic leader will surface, usually
spouting off populist rhetoric to appease the masses who want nothing more than to be taken care of. This is what brought Obama into office, and
whatever the facts are regarding his eligibility, it matters not, his mysterious rise to power is due to a populace who worships the POTUS as if it
were a Monarchy. This American Monarchy is nothing new, and few challenged the dubious title of Camelot when this was ascribed to the Kennedy
administration, and few question the wisdom of referring to the POTUS as the "most powerful man in the world".
The United States seems less powerful to not just the rest of the world, but to many Americans, because all that power has been transferred to a
single person. The concentration of power does not increase power, it corrupts it. What made the once powerful nation of The United States so
powerful was that this power was spread evenly among the people. This is the way to maintain power, to keep it evenly spread and protected from any
centralization. This power, now centralized, still exists as power, and it is power that belongs to each and everyone of us. If The United States
is to ever regain its greatness, it will not be by electing a leader who will take us back to greatness. It will be because we the people, told those
who have usurped our Constitutional Republic to piss off.
If Barack Obama has perpetuated a fraud upon the American people and is not eligible per Constitutional mandate, the truth will come out. In the mean
time, it is best to assume he has this "eligibility" and to focus on the clear and present usurpation's this man has perpetuated. Legitimate
citizen or not, Barack Obama has usurped the office of the Presidency, and before him George Bush usurped this office, and before him, Bill Clinton,
before him Bush's father, and even Ronald Regan, and the office of the POTUS has been usurped since at least Woodrow Wilson's day, possible further
In the end, it is not a string of consecutive political candidates who have usurped our Constitutional Republic, it is the king makers who have done
so. It is those nameless, faceless people, that too many people love to ascribe the acronym TPTB to. They are the culprits, and they have pulled
this nifty little trick off by the willing acquiescence of the American people.
Our Forefathers defied Great Britain back in 1775 and began a revolution sparked by an outrage over tax on tea. On tea, for Christ's sakes! At that
time there was no such thing as an income tax. Imagine how an income tax would have gone over in 1790, or 1810, or 1840, but in 1913 when Congress
levied an income tax in perpetuity most Americans barely batted an eye. Most Americans barely batted an eye, because the income tax was sold as a tax
on the rich, and a wealth re-distribution scheme. As long as most Americans believed they would not be taxed, but receive the benefits of others
being taxed, few had a problem with this odious tax, including the rich who were the ones supposedly being taxed. Suspicious? You bet it is!
The death of the Republic came when people began voting for "free" money, and this is when the ingenuity of Americans turned into a nation of
plunderers. There is a reason pirate movies do so well at the box office in this country, and that is because we are a nation of pirates who love to
plunder. It is not just the corporations who are plundering, it is most of us who are plundering. Instead of telling Congress to piss off with their
perpetual income taxation scheme, Americans pay the damn tax. The irony of this is that most Americans can not explain how it is they are liable for
that tax. If you can't explain how you are liable for the tax, what makes you so sure you are liable? Nobody really knows, because nobody really
bothers to read the revenue laws that explain liability.
Instead of being a nation whose collective dream was to own their own business and be their own boss, we are now a nation who bemoans the loss of
jobs, and we want our jobs back! If and when we get those jobs back, our employers will tell us that we must sign a government contract which is
either a Form W-4 or a 1099. If we ask our employer why, that employer will explain that it is the law. If we ask our employer to show us what law
they are referring to, they will resort to extortion and inform us that if we do not sign these government contracts they will not hire us. Instead
of telling those employers to piss off, out of expedience, we acquiesce to the coercion and sign the contracts. That contract make us liable for
sure. Whatever made us liable before that, nobody knows, but for sure, once the contract is signed, that contract serves as prima facie evidence of
It was not Barack Hussein Obama who perpetuate that fraud upon the American people, as that fraud has been in place for nighe one hundred years now.
If Barack Hussein Obama is not eligible then this fraud is just one more in a long line of many. The beauty of this current question of fraud, for
the usurpers, is that most American's care more about this, than they do the fraud of income taxation. People would still rather pay the income
tax, because people still want the government handouts, (plunder).
As we wake up and realize the mess we are in, some will point to treatise such as Henry David Thoreau's On Civil Disobedience, but this essay comes
with a fatal flaw, as Thoreau recommends we take from the government what we can, and ignore them for the rest. The problem with that is that you can
not take from a government and expect to be able to ignore them afterward. If we are ever going to bring The United States back to its former glory,
we must ignore the government as it is today, and do what we must to bring it back to what it supposed to be. This means we must stop taking from
this government, and just ignore them.
Elect officials yes, but fraudulently or not, Obama was elected. Now that he is elected, the only possible way he can be "the most powerful man in
the world" is if we the people acquiesce to his assertions of power. I say non acquiescence is the key, and it is high time we tell this government
to piss off. If you can not afford health insurance, then don't buy a policy, and do not accept a government hand out. Instead, create the wealth
you need to purchase what you need, and only pay taxes on what you owe, and what you owe is only that for which you are liable for. If you do not
know how you became liable for the so called income tax, make them prove you are. Make them prove it to a jury. Make them explain the law that
nobody understands. Do you think they can? I doubt it.
This is how you tell a government to piss off, and this is what really matters. If we are to defeat the king makers, we must begin by asserting our
own powers and becoming a nation of kings and queens in our own right. Let TPTB fight a nation of sovereign kings and queens.
