There are only 3 ways you can deal with this overall encompassing issue;
1. ) Stand up and fight back - March to your capital and demand the resignation of your president and his cabinet, along with all those believe to be
corrupt and in power.
- Install then via democracy vote, those you want in power. Install vote verification systems to ensure those you vote for get the votes. Install a
form of protection in your Governing documents that allow for Performance Reviews of your elected officials on a basis that suits (6 months, 12
months) et c. With the end result being if the elect don't do as promised, then they are booted - pure and simple.
2. ) Peacefully resist by making it as hard as possible for them to spy on you.
- Support Project Meshnet. Install and Run your own SSL, Encrypted Email and File servers.
- Stop paying taxes.
3. ) Roll over and die?
Question mark arriving at option 3 is trailing the path of least effort, and
indicative of the present American body politic. Not encouraging.
Backtracking to option two, I've got a couple of friends who were evicted
in the middle of the night by people with select fire rifles for not paying taxes.
Additionally, those who take precautions on their own initiative against criminal
behavior are now themselves characterized as delusional, criminals in their own
right or both. Ain't tyranny great? All you have to do is watch it grow.
And Option One looks like it would enjoy a bigger Neilsen than the climax episode
of Dallas: and be a lot grislier considering how fast Kokesh backpedaled as armed.
For Skep: This struggle may never be over in our lifetimes, and I might have
a couple of extra laps around Sol than you- but I fully intend to get the snowball
rolling back uphill. What the heck, aeronautical engineers swear bumblebees...
Besides it has a lot more to do with what we stand for than anything else we
have to fight for: "the right to be left alone" by our government.
Looks like we'll have to reissue the memo. But everybody should be carrying the
same copy. Without one voice spoken by millions, feigned deafness will win.
