Ed Brown: A man whose situation warrants our attention;

There is a situation that is taking place in Concord, N.H. that merits the attention of all those concerned with the Rights of We The People. As well as those uncomfortable with the gigantic strides that government has taken in the erosion of our Rights.
.
Following are some excerpts from the kutv.com article as found from a link in commentary on Keep and Bear Arms.

"(CBS) CONCORD, N.H. A federal jury found Plainfield couple guilty of tax evasion Thursday. The husband wasn't in court for the verdict, because he has barricaded himself in his hilltop home, saying he is prepared for an armed standoff...."

..."I'm in my house," he said Wednesday morning by phone. "I won't leave it." ...

..."If somebody comes at your house with guns to arrest you and you've committed no crimes, what would you do," he asked.

"Most Americans," Brown told The Associated Press, "would cower and cringe and raise their hands and surrender like a good little slave."

..."I won't. Under no circumstances. I do not tolerate cowardness, oppression, bulliness, and I certainly don't tolerate a federal agency that has absolutely zero jurisdiction in my state, never mind in my county, in my town." ....

In the home on Tuesday, Brown told supporters and reporters he has weapons and has called for supporters to converge on his property to help him resist the tax charges.

"You attack my property, it's going to get really violent," Brown told the Concord Monitor on Tuesday. "I don't care who it is."


Applaud and admire the stance that Ed Brown has taken. And hope that there are quite a few American citizens that will stand up in support of him and his wife. We The People MUST stand up to the perverse edicts being issued by our usurping government(s). Am not totally familiar with all of the legal issues surrounding this case. But, I am well aware that most of our governments in the United States have grossly exceeded their Constitutional authority. And that it is not only our Right, but our duty to question supposed 'authority'. As well as to contest plainly unconstitutional wrongs being perpetrated by government. Especially one that was meant to be made of, by and for We The People.

May God bless and help Ed and his wife through this ordeal. And, I pray this situation doesn't become another travesty of justice such as Ruby Ridge or Waco. Hope that everyone will follow this ongoing event and rally behind what Mr. Brown is trying to accomplish. Which, I believe, is to stand up to an increasingly oppressive and tyrannical government. Our laws were meant to be made with the consent of We The People. And, I've discovered quite a few local, state and federal laws across this country. In which it would justly seem unreasonable that any Free (supposedly) people would consent to them. Hope that there are fellow citizens that will follow this case and that they will express their concern loudly. For that will make it more difficult on the perverse in our government whom desire to teach Mr. Brown a 'lesson' by a show of their (supposed) power.

The founding fathers would be proud of him. It's to bad he's a dying breed. Figuratively and literally.

The 13th ammendment states...
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Income taxes are "involuntary servitude". Everyone spends 4 months of the year working for free. No way around it.

The government ignores the constitution regulary. G.W. Bush reffered to it as "Just a goddamned piece of paper". They will have no problem killing this man over their slave money. They will probably have fun doing it.

We The People someow need to apply the brakes to this beast. This is NOT the form of government that the founders had envisioned. The government we have today is more like that thought up by a Hitler, Mao or Stalin. It is truly becoming more despicable with each passing day....

Henry said...

Thomas Jefferson said in essance that when the government no longer represents the desires of the people or does not hold to the constitution then they the people as good citizens are under obligation to revolt.It is their duty to do so.

E. David Quammen said...

Henry - Very true. We The People must proceed in a wise manner. This presently perverse government operates on the ignorance and fear of the masses. The key, IMHO (which happens to coincide with that of Jefferson and Franklin). Is to enlighten the masses. All power is still in We The People. It is our duty, as fellow citizens and patriots. To awaken our fellow citizens to this age old truism.

"This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins." - Ben Franklin

Let's make sure that we're doing what we can in our own communities to inform the public. Get Aaron Russo's dvd's "America Freedom to Fascism" and distribute them to as many people as we can. The scripture says: "Work while it is day, for the darkness comes when no man can work.

E. David Quammen said...

Very true Lori. And the darkness is indeed approaching very fast.

However, it shouldn't be cause for us to fear. For the light will utterly destroy the dark. It is written, and shall come to pass. It would be best if those whom serve the dark understand this. And turn to seek the Truth. The time approaches wherein there will be no turning, or fence-sitting. The evil shall remain evil, and the good, good. Then shall come judgment.....
