For those intent on Usurpation, here is food for thought:

"Among the natural rights…are these: First, a right to life;
Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to
support and defend them in the best manner they can
. These are evident
branches of, rather than deductions from, the duty of self-preservation,
commonly called the first law of nature.

All men have a right to remain in a state of nature as long as they please;
and in case of intolerable oppression, civil or religious, to leave the
society they belong to, and enter into another.

When men enter into society, it is by voluntary consent; and they have a
right to demand and insist upon the performance of such conditions and
previous limitations as form an equitable original compact

Every natural right not expressly given up, or, from the nature of a social
compact, necessarily ceded, remains.

All positive and civil laws should conform, as far as possible, to the law
of natural reason and equity

""Just and true liberty, equal and impartial liberty," in matters spiritual
and temporal, is a thing that all men are clearly entitled to by the eternal
and immutable laws of God and nature
, [418]as well as by the law of nations
and all well-grounded municipal laws, which must have their foundation in
the former

"In the state of nature every man is, under God, judge and sole judge of his
own rights and of the injuries done him
. By entering into society he agrees
to an arbiter or indifferent judge between him and his neighbors;
but he no
more renounces his original right than by taking a cause out of the ordinary
course of law
, and leaving the decision to referees or indifferent

In the last case, he must pay the referees for time and trouble. He should
also be willing to pay his just quota for the support of government, the
law, and the constitution; the end of which is to furnish indifferent and
impartial judges in all cases that may happen
, whether civil,
ecclesiastical, marine, or military.

[419] The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on
earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but
only to have the law of nature for his rule

- Samuel Adams, The Rights of the Colonists (November 20, 1772)


"As a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions."

- James Madison, National Gazette Essay, 27 March 1792


"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from ANY who might ATTEMPT to ABUSE THEM, which would include their own government.”

- George Washington - Speech of Jan. 7, 1790,
in the Boston Independent Chronicle, Jan. 14, 1790


"The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Whenever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction."

- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England (1803)


Preamble, in part, to the Bill of Rights attached to The United States Constitution:

"The Conventions of a number of the States having, at the time of adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further DECLARATORY and RESTRICTIVE clauses should be added, and as extending the ground of public CONFIDENCE in the Government will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution:

..."A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

DECLARATORY clause; "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state,"

RESTRICTIVE clause; "the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

How can a clearly outlined RIGHT be regulated or broken down and subjected to the whim of a few?

Would that not be considered as Infringement?

Are not you sworn to uphold and defend The Constitution of The United States of America? The TRUE law of the land?

Setting aside the various Repugnant 'rulings' of the supposed courts of justice. Which repugnant rulings, are in reality, best described in legal terms as;

"SUMMUM JUS EST SUMMA INJURIA." (The rigor of the law is the height of oppression).

"COMMUNIS ERROR FACIT JUS." (Common error repeated many times makes law).

That lawmakers are, either not cognoscente of these FACTS, and/or are not overturning these Constitutionally Repugnant and TREASONOUS decisions is horrifying. One can then only reasonably assume that lawmakers are in agreement and, in fact, are complicit to these Usurpations. How can they, with any type of common decency, hold out that they are serving the best interests of their constituents? -

'We want to take away, limit or regulate you into being defenseless subjects of the state. We desire that you are totally dependent upon us for your security and protection. Just give us a call if you need help. (Sorry if we don’t make it in time, for we are very busy you see), and there is nothing you can do about that either. For you will have no recourse in the event of damage or loss. Deal with it.'

Is that not the same as saying;
'We want complete control, and for you to be placed under our arbitrary rule. And subjected to our decision of what is deemed right and wrong. And that this is for your own 'common good'. If you don’t like it, tough.'

What kind of Freedom and Liberty is that?

What part of 'Shall NOT be Infringed' is NOT understood?

Consider the government success rate at our borders. Reflect as well, on their resounding victory in the war on drugs and domestic crime. It is my contention, that it is way past time for we the people to DEMAND the return of TRUE CONSTITUTIONAL LAW. The Framers of the Constitution so clearly defined the way. And that, our supposed representatives return to doing their Constitutionally delegated duties! And this, while there is yet time remaining to do so!

"Those Essential RIGHTS of mankind without which LIBERTY cannot exist."
- Richard Henry Lee
