Who owns you?

I recently asked a couple questions of a group of my friends that are helping figure this mess out.  Here is a question and answer that I thought you would be interested in.

How can it benefit a free person to tell his employees (the government) how much capital he was able to produce during the proceeding year?
It doesn’t. By definition, a slaveowner claims rights to the produce of any slave he owns.  The government claims rights to your wages. That makes you a slave, not a free person.  The government is no more your employee than any other criminal is the employee of his victim, or the slaveholder the employee of his slave.  Getting your resources from someone else, particularly when the source does it, not in return for your goods or services, but instead under threat of punishment, doesn’t make you an employee of the source – it makes you a criminal and the source a victim.   An employee can be fired.  A criminal who is victimizing you cannot.

Your Sheriff is the law of the land

Power of a “County Sheriff”

Bighorn County Sheriff Dave Mattis spoke at a press conference following a recent U.S. District Court decision (Case No. 2:96-cv-099-J (2006)) and announced that all federal officials are forbidden to enter his county without his prior approval …… “If a sheriff doesn’t want the Feds in his county he has the constitutional right and power to keep them out, or ask them to leave, or retain them in custody.”

The court decision was the result of a suit against both the BATF and the IRS by Mattis and other members of the Wyoming Sheriff’s Association. The suit in the Wyoming federal court district sought restoration of the protections enshrined in the United States Constitution and the Wyoming Constitution.

Guess what? The District Court ruled in favor of the sheriffs. In fact, they stated, Wyoming is a sovereign state and the duly elected sheriff of a county is the highest law enforcement official within a county and has law enforcement powers exceeding that of any other state or federal official.”

Re-read this quote.

The court confirms and asserts that “the duly elected sheriff of a county is the highest law enforcement official within a county and has law enforcement powers EXCEEDING that of any other state or federal official.”

And you thought the 10th Amendment was dead and buried — not in Wyoming, not yet. But it gets even better. Since the judge stated that the sheriff “has law enforcement powers EXCEEDING that of any other state OR federal official,” the Wyoming sheriffs are flexing their muscles. They are demanding access to all BATF files. Why? So as to verify that the agency is not violating provisions of Wyoming law that prohibits the registration of firearms or the keeping of a registry of firearm owners. This would be wrong.

The sheriffs are also demanding that federal agencies immediately cease the seizure of private property and the impoundment of private bank accounts without regard to due process in Wyoming state courts.

Gosh, it makes one wish that the sheriffs of the counties relative to Waco, Texas and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma regarding their jurisdictions were drinking the same water these Wyoming sheriffs are. Sheriff Mattis said, “I am reacting in response to the actions of federal employees who have attempted to deprive citizens of my county of their privacy, their liberty, and their property without regard to constitutional safeguards. I hope that more sheriffs all across America will join us in protecting their citizens from the illegal activities of the IRS, EPA, BATF, FBI, or any other federal agency that is operating outside the confines of constitutional law.

Employees of the IRS and the EPA are no longer welcome in Bighorn County unless they intend to operate in conformance to constitutional law.” [Amen].

Sheriffs have enormous power, if or when they choose to use it. I share the hope of Sheriff Mattis that “more sheriffs all across America will join us in protecting their citizens.” If Wyoming Sheriffs can follow in the steps of former Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack and recognize both their power and authority, they could become champions for the memory of Thomas Jefferson who died thinking that he had won those “states’ rights” debates with Alexander Hamilton.

This case is not just some amusing mountain melodrama. This is a BIG deal. This case is yet further evidence that the 10th Amendment is not yet totally dead, or in a complete decay in the United States. It is also significant in that it can, may, and hopefully will be interpreted to mean that “political subdivisions of a State are included within the meaning of the amendment, or that the powers exercised by a sheriff are an extension of those common law powers which the 10th Amendment explicitly reserves to the People, if they are not granted to the federal government or specifically prohibited to the States.”

How we can Accomplish this?

We have researched many areas and found a county with a very small population that has good water, soil and climate. We have said several times we are going to “Take over the County” which is not a good description of what we will be doing. We will be moving to this county and becoming GOOD neighbors, getting involved in the county’s business, building up the economy and improving living conditions for everyone. We will not be forcefully taking over anyones lives or their county, we will show and educate the local residents as how they can be more prosperous, happy, and enjoy the lives they were meant to live by allowing them to exercise their rights and freedoms guaranteed by upholding the Rule of Law and the Constitution.

In essence we will be taking over the County in respect to government, we will have more or as many residents in our group than there are residents in the county to make sure the elections are like the Democrats and Republicans have done for years, we will in effect be appointing our own Candidate via the voting.

This means that everyone that moves to this county is responsible for their own lives, their behavior and well being of everyone. Each is responsible for their own livelihoods, their homes and upbringing of their children. Each will be expected to stand together and give support to the Sheriff when or if needed.

This move will not be a breeze so to speak, there will be a lot of problems just as there are all over the country but we will have a better chance at surviving the coming problems in this country as we will have the knowledge and safety of being able to sustain our lives using our own good sense and being prepared for the worst and hoping for the best.

This will not be easy or cheap. We have to have our own power, water and land to grow our food and live on. We are looking now for someone who will finance a large tract which will be paid back by the people who will be taking ownership of that section of land. We will have to drill at least one large well to supply us all with water both for our living and the crops and animals. There will need to be a independant power source and with the folks that have already signed up there will be no problem in building this.

If you would like to be a part of this movement join our Yahoo group freedomisnotdead to keep up with the information we are finding out daily.

Join the Freedom Is Not Dead Group on Yahoo.

If you would like to help us show others how to successfully take back our freedoms then help us with donations to fund the necessary work that will have to be done before anyone can move on the land. Every dollar will go to this project and will pay you back in dividends of showing other counties they can also be freedom counties which will benefit everyone in this country by showing the corporate powers they are not the governing body.

Please give us your support and help us make this one project that will set a course for the future.

Please support HR-25 S-1025 – The Fair Tax Act


The Fair Tax plan was created by and is supported by American citizens, not by the lobbyists who run Congress. So, inherently, it garners trust because it was created outside Washington DC.

It repeals the income tax, corporate tax, payroll taxes (FICA and MEDI), gift tax, and estate tax and replaces the current revenue stream with a national retail sales tax.

It lessens or solves so many problems that Congress has created by currying favor with special interests over so many years, including many of the problems that have led to the current economic crisis.

For example, eliminating the corporate tax and income tax will flood this country with investment from overseas. And with investment, jobs that we have been off-shoring for years will come back. Everyone wins except the lobbyists.

By taxing consumption and rebating life’s necessities, it’s effective rate (tax paid minus rebate) starts at zero and approaches the maximum rate the more you spend. So, the wealthy, who spend more, pay more.

It encourages savings and investment because investment gains not taxed. (What an idea!)

There are no loopholes.

Federal taxes are no longer withheld from wage earners and Joe-The-Taxpayer doesn’t have to file anything with the Federal Government.

In fact, only businesses that sell at retail have to file and its a simple percentage of their sales AND the business is compensated with a small percentage of the tax remitted to offset its own compliance costs.

By eliminating the ability of Congress to manipulate the Byzantine Internal Revenue Code, the power of lobbyists over the Federal government is greatly diminished. And Congress won’t be spending time on its interminable tweaking of the I.R.C.

Should we let them fail?

Should Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Be Saved?
Written by Darrell Castle
Constitution Party 2008 Vice Presidential Candidate


Should Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac be allowed to fail? That is the question that the United States Government (USG) faces today along with the consequences of failure or the consequences of takeover which is essentially nationalization.


These two private companies guarantee $5.3 trillion of the $12 trillion US mortgage market. They are privately owned and disclaim government backing, but they are called government sponsored enterprises (GSEs). They have always been considered safe investments almost as if the USG does guarantee their safety. Since May, their common and preferred shares have each lost more than half their value which is a big problem for many banks which are heavily invested in their common shares. The decline sinks the banks’ capital base and restricts, even more, the credit once available to the American consumer. The credit market is already restricted to the point that the producing economy is grinding to a halt. This is happening because banks have restricted credit so that they will have money available to cover mortgage losses lest they be nationalized by the USG. In other words, the financial economy which has carried the American economy since the Reagan era is now destroying the consumer economy upon which our entire economic system is based. We all remember President Bush’s advice after 9-11 to ‘go shopping’.


The problem is that shopping is becoming impossible for most people without incurring new debt and sources of credit are drying up. The M1 figures which is all the money held in the American economy such as savings accounts, checking accounts, etc. with which American consumers can purchase without additional debt is about $1.3 trillion. This isn’t nearly enough to purchase the American production (GDP) of $13.8 trillion based on 2007 numbers. The American people fall further and further behind. Their wages are stagnant but inflation is not stagnant which constantly erodes their standard of living. They have the appearance of wealth, but it is all an illusion.


What would be the consequences of the USG’s proposed takeover of Fannie and Freddie? Will the already strapped American taxpayers have to absorb the $5.3 trillion of their debt thus almost doubling the public debt? Probably not, because not all of the Fannie and Freddie mortgages are junk. Those that are junk will have to be separated and dealt with. The common stockholders will probably take a bath but the preferred stockholders such as China with almost $400 billion and Russia with almost $100 billion can remain dirty. The companies can be run by a conservator such as that appointed in Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases to run failing companies and recover them while writing down the necessary amount of debt within classes. This Nationalization or takeover could save Fannie and Freddie and with them the entire system for a period of time, but a day of reckoning is coming and coming soon. This will add at least $10s of billions of debt to the American taxpayer each year for many years and cause even more inflation and a lower standard of living.


What would be the consequences of allowing Fannie and Freddie to fail? More than likely the consequences would involve a world wide catastrophic collapse of the international financial system. This would mean the end of our debt based economy because no foreign government would buy our debt. Foreign trade based on a trade deficit would dry up and the United States would enter a time of economic depression which would probably be worse than 1929 at least for a short time.


What then should we as a nation do in response to the decision that lies before us? The first order of business is to elect wise, honest, and ethical leaders to lead us through the crises and to make sure the American Republic as originally founded emerges on the other side. I have no doubt that Chuck Baldwin is such a leader, but I have grave doubts about Senators McCain and Obama. If we had a leader such as Chuck Baldwin, I would advise letting the system fail and dealing with the consequences. This is a chance to purge the system of debt which can never be paid, and thus remove the yoke of debt from the necks of the American people. It is a chance to return to a sound money system based on gold and silver as originally proposed. It is a chance to be free of the Federal Reserve and of the income tax. In short, we could restore our system to what it was designed to be and the American people could live in peace, prosperity, and liberty.


The collapse of the current debt pyramid system is inevitable. The USG and even the Federal Reserve cannot repeal the laws of economics no matter how much they want to. The question before us is will we choose to continue the present course which will lead to a hyperinflationary event such as what happened in Weimar Germany in 1933 and led to the rise of Hitler and WWII, or will we suffer a depression which could prove to be worse and of longer duration than the great depression of 1929. It is incumbent, therefore, upon this generation which has enjoyed the false benefits of this system for so long and which has been so profligate in its ways, to bare this hardship so that future generations, yet unborn, will not have to bare them. If we act quickly, we have the ability to control events and make our own decisions, but soon someone or some event will make the decision for us. This is the system that has been bequeathed to us.

Application to become an illegal alien


Becoming Illegal (Actual letter from an Iowa resident and sent to his

The Honorable Tom Harkin
731 Hart Senate Office Building
Phone (202) 224 3254
Washington DC, 20510

Dear Senator Harkin,

As a native Iowan and excellent customer of the Internal Revenue
Service, I am writing to ask for your assistance. I have contacted the
Department of Homeland Security in an effort to determine the process
for becoming an illegal alien and they referred me to you.

My primary reason for wishing to change my status from U.S. Citizen to
illegal alien stems from the bill which was recently passed by the
Senate and fo r which you voted. If my understanding of this bill’s
provisions is accurate, as an illegal alien who has been in the United
States for five years, all I need to do to become a citizen is to pay a
$2,000 fine and income taxes for three of the last five years.  I know a
good deal when I see one and I am anxious to get the process started
before everyone figures it out.

Simply put, those of us who have been here legally have had to pay taxes
every year so I’m excited about the prospect of avoiding two years of
taxes in return for paying a $2,000 fine. Is there any way that I can
apply to be illegal retroactively? This would yield an excellent result
for me and my family because we paid heavy taxes in 2004 and 2005.
Additionally, as an illegal alien I could begin using the local
emergency room as my primary health care provider. Once I have stopped
paying premiums for medical insur ance, my accountant figures I could
save almost $10,000 a year.

Another benefit in gaining illegal status would be that my daughter
would receive preferential treatment relative to her law school
applications, as well as ‘in-state’ tuition rates for many colleges
throughout the United States for my son.

Lastly, I understand that illegal status would relieve me of the burden
of renewing my driver’s license and making those burdensome car
insurance premiums. This is very important to me given that I still have
college age children driving my car.

If you would provide me with an outline of the process to become illegal
(retroactively if possible) and copies of the necessary forms, I would
be most appreciative. Thank you for your assistance.

Your Loyal Constituent,
Donald Ruppert

All credit card transaction will be reported to the IRS

by Jake, the Champion of the Constitution
Thursday, July 24, 2008

July 23, 2008, Ron Paul reports that the House passed HR 3221 by a vote of 272-152. Did your Representative vote for this Pelosi bill? Check here.

The 600-page mega-bill includes:

1) Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac Bailout: Granted Treasury an unlimited line of credit to allowed to buy all housing securities from these two private companies. Ron explains that Treasury will exchange Treasury Bills for the mortgage-backed securities, so these securities will now back the dollar – which will debase the dollar which debt that no one wants to buy, so the dollar will drop.

2) National Debt Expansion: Congress approved to increase the national debt by $0.8 Trillion

3) Police State Expansion: All mortgage brokers must now get fingerprinted. (As if this caused the housing crisis!)

And the winner is…

4) Police State Expansion: All personal credit card transactions will now be reported to the IRS. Just swell.

Feel like casting off some chains? Try registering at www.campaignforliberty.com. Contact your Representative and especially your Senators (who will vote next) by going to this bill at www.downsizedc.org, the Read the Bills Act that requires Congress to read to the floor each bill before it is voted on. A 600-page document would probably stymie even the MicroMachines Man for a couple hours. If anyone thinks their Representative is actually reading all the bills they vote on, I have some subprime mortgages in Las Vegas I can sell you.

As the dollar drops, the risks of hyperinflation will increase as described below:
