The court cases sited regarding the right to travel were referring to a different class of citizens, but the premise is a correct one in that one
should have the right to come and go as they please, by whatever means of modern conveyance they are able to acquire, so long as their exercise of the
same doesn't impede the right(s) of another. It's a moral, easily understandable, precept. Unfortunately these are not times of moral abundance, nor
are the legalities being imposed and enforced today rooted in morality, you're right... they're all commercial. Rape, murder, vandalism, mischief
... "driving without a license" all commercial charges merely given the appearance of morality (right and wrong).
The class of Citizens who had access to moral Law (in essence everyone white male not a ward of the state or incarcerated) began to see those rights
eroded and undermined starting in 1917 and accelerating into the 20's. However participation was still "voluntary" (sound familiar to our current
topic?) until 1933.
In 33 we got The new Deal, Gold confiscation act, social insecurity, the bank act of 1933 and the FDIC (which brought all local and regional banks
under the Federal Reserve), etc. etc.
We started using notes of debt (Federal Reserve Notes) to discharge our obligations to pay instead of satisfying our obligations.
Once you lost the ability to satisfy your debts (gold and silver confiscation) and the ability to care for yourself into old age (social insecurity)
you became a debtor & ward of the STATE, joining the ranks of the lower class citizens. Until 1850 you had to be land owners to even cast a vote.
So if that's what we lost the last time they offered a "voluntary" participation into a program, and we've all seen the right's continually and
unceasingly eroded since then, my only question is what's around the corner on this one?
Are there really still people who believe politicians? Would you bet your life they're telling you the truth? Because the stakes could be that high
and you may very well be doing just that.
Withstanding this currently "voluntary" option, even if creating the possibility of some minor personal inconvenience, certainly seems a worthwhile
endeavor towards curbing a bludgeoning, ever overreaching and expanding entity, ...even if just to say "you're needed ... but not here. No
For those expressing the belief that "if you have nothing to hide why do you care if _________"
I will only say, if you don't believe in privacy why are there curtains and blinds on your windows or a door on the bathroom in your own house?
