What Freedom?!

Courtesy of Bill Powell (and if you're not regularly reading his blog, you bloody well should be), here is a video that shows you just how far gone this country truly is:

Watching just part of this video brought to mind a list of accusations against an old government that this country once had- a list of abuses and usurpations that were so great that the leaders of this nation believed that they had the God-given and inviolable right to overthrow that government and establish a new one. Looking over that ancient list of grievances and violations of God's Law, one is struck by the similarities between that time and the current one:

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
  • For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
  • For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
  • For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
  • For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: 
  • For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
  • For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
  • For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
  • For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
  • For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
As Claire Wolfe once said:
America is at that awkward stage. It’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards. 
Your system is against you at every stage. Your government has become the very evil that your Founding Fathers worked so hard to overthrow. You are breaking laws that you never consented to, that were never designed for your happiness, that are enforced arbitrarily and unevenly, and that disproportionately favour the few over the many. The freedoms that you believed were yours from birth are gone, destroyed by the very bastards that you keep electing into power. Do not be surprised, then, if one day you are awoken by SWAT teams breaking down your door to arrest you for not filing your permit correctly for your daughter's lemonade stand.
