Parchment Idolatry

“But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain — that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case it is unfit to exist.”
― Lysander Spooner, No Treason: The Constitution of No Authority, 1874

If there is one lesson from AD 1215 when a bunch of English aristocrats cornered King John and made him sign Magna Carta at Runnymede it is this: the people who have power over you cannot be trusted. They don’t care about you, your property, your freedom, your family, your education. They are slave holders, they have a slave holder attitude, they despise you, they talk, as Barack Obama did recently, about how you cling to your guns and bibles. They call you a “basket of deplorables.” They are parasites who feed on you and your productivity. And as long as you continue to allow them to do so, they always will.

You keep believing that you cannot govern yourself. Why is that? Why are you not competent to run your own life? Why do you call the police when you can handle things yourself? Why do you trust the county prosecutor’s office and the county judges and the other parasites who lie and provide injustice? Why are you sending them money? Is it because you’re afraid?

Nothing in Magna Carta protects the rights of the yeomen archers who made it possible to defeat armoured knights in battles. Nothing in the English Bill of Rights of 1689, which specifically allows Protestants to be armed, is upheld by the current tyranny masquerading as the government of England. And why should they? They tugged at the heartstrings with some shooting in Port Arthur, and everyone in Australia gave up their guns. So guess who has any way to resist mandated poison jabs in Australia. Nobody.

You have a constitution, but you have no standing to enforce any part of it. How exactly does that limit government? As Lysander Spooner told you 149 years ago, it doesn’t. And still you think you can limit the power of people who hate you, who despise you, who gather at their District of Corruption cocktail parties and laugh about how pathetic and worthless you are. Why is that?

The people who have nice homes all around Washington, DC, (better known, thanks to my friend Skip The Free Rifleman as Mordor-on-the-Potomac) have been parasites on American prosperity for hundreds of years. The Tidewater Tuckahoes are not interested in your freedom. They want you disarmed, tagged like cattle, numbered, and forced to watch as your children are mutilated for the demon they worship, Baphomet. They oppose you having children at all without a licence. They want to prevent you from having a Twitter account to oppose their tyranny, and they want to prevent you from having money if you don’t delete offending posts from your social media accounts.

So, what exactly do you think it matters that King John signed some document so 25 barons would have some power over some property disputes? It doesn’t matter, because even when the Parliament has passed and the King or Queen has signed legislation granting rights, like being armed since 1689, the reality is that they take the guns anyway. If the constitution matters, at all, why does Hunter Biden not sit in a jail cell awaiting trial on the felony crimes of which there is abundant evidence he committed? Because he matters, and you don’t.

Taxation is theft, but you keep sending in your taxes. Over four trillion dollars in personal income taxes collected in 2022 and over six trillion dollars spent. Of course, they have a few other tax resources, but they keep spending more than they take in. Why is that?

Well, it’s because the Gramm Rudman Hollings Act is a joke. It’s a silly little goof to pretend that the country is ever going to have a balanced budget. It’s a charade they play every once in a while, where some worthless mass-murder-in-Ukraine aficionado like the representative from the World Economic Forum Kevin McCarthy pretends to “negotiate” some reduction in the growth of the deficit while actually continuing to expand the growth of the deficit. What does he get out of it?

His friends in the banking community pay him huge amounts of money through all kinds of lawful schemes that congress has authorised for congress to be paid bribes. The bankers will tell you that your infant child just born this year already owes a share of the national debt. But, as you know, an infant cannot consent to a contract. So how exactly does the infant owe anything? How is it that you supposedly owe any part of the national debt? Did you sign for it? No. You never did. Did you pledge any collateral for it? No. You never did. Liars and mass murder financiers like Kevin McCarthy did. But Kevin loves Klaus Schwab and probably worships Moloch or one of the other demons.

Did you really think you were going to vote your way to freedom? There have been elections in this country for over two hundred years, and you aren’t any better off. Oliver Wendell Holmes says that the open fields part of your property isn’t really your property, and evidence grabbed by trespassers on your land can be used in court against you, and this bad ruling is upheld later to fight the war against independent marijuana production under Reagan.

The “curtilage” of your property, according to a 9th Circuit court ruling can be entered by law enforcement filth to put a GPS tracker on your vehicle parked in your driveway. The court which made that ruling included judges who had, at the time I looked, cars parked in their driveways and along the street in front of their properties. This publication, L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise, was taken off the Internet, its domain name seized by order of the US Marshalls office because I used public information about the judges and public information about their addresses (white pages, Google maps, street view), and presented information on where to go to put tracking devices on their cars. Oh, calamity, the judges might be subject to the same treatment that they okay for the dirty, filthy, scum law enforcement who are are allowed to treat you like a slave and go onto your property with impunity.

You love law enforcement? You fly the thin blue line flag? Perhaps you should reflect on who it is that will come door to door to collect your guns. In 2005, in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, it was members of the Oklahoma national guard that went door to door in the entirely peaceful Garden District in New Orleans to collect guns.

You endanger your liberty when you believe that the people in law enforcement care any more about your freedom today than William Knox did in 1777. Knox, then the Under Secretary of State in the British colonial office, advocated for the same policy that Gavin Newsom and other disgusting authoritarians do today, writing: “The Arms of all the People should be taken away, & every piece of Ordnance removed into the King’s Stores, nor should any foundry or manufactory of Arms, Gunpowder, or Warlike Stores, be ever suffered in America, nor should any Gunpowder, Lead, Arms or Ordnance be imported into it without License; they will have but little need of such things for the future, as the King’s Troops, Ships and Forts will be sufficient to protect them from any danger.” Except of course the dangers from the Hanoverian usurper posing as the “king” in defiance of the great truth that there is no king but Jesus Christ.

There’s only one way out of this mess. Turn to God. Obey God.

Pledging allegiance to a flag means that you don’t obey God, it means that you worship a hunk of cloth. That’s idolatry. Pledging allegiance to a republic and a constitution means that you don’t obey God, you obey a hunk of parchment. And the government is another artefact of human hands. If you worship the state, you are a statist.

God actually does love you and wants you to be free. God asks only three things of you: love God, love yourself, and love your neighbour. And a bunch of you aren’t doing any of those things.

Americans have turned away from God. God has noticed. A reckoning comes.
