DownsizeDC.org, the activist libertarian website dedicated to rolling back a US government that has not only become grotesquely invasive and profligate but has taken on all of the trappings of an organized crime syndicate, issued what is destined to become a classic Independence Day call for a Second American Revolution.
Signed by “Perry Willis and James Wilson for Downsize DC,” the challenge to Americans echoes the Declaration of Independence that once challenged a king: “Is it time to alter or abolish our present form of government?”
In announcing their new strategy to “Deny Consent” the authors identify the “wanton criminality of the Federal State,” how powerful politicians use strong-arm tactics in the same way a gangland protection racket works.
They shake down successful businesses for millions in “campaign contributions” by using their official government positions to harass and threaten them, like bringing antitrust charges against Microsoft, keeping the legal pressure on until that company coughed up $2.3 million to the made men in the Mafia Government.
Then it became Wal-Mart’s turn, then the hedge funds, and now Apple.
People who claim government is controlled by corporations have been conned by government.
“No executive from Microsoft or Wal-Mart or Apple ever threatened anyone with violence for failing to buy their products,” Willis and Wilson point out. “But the politicians do this constantly.”
Government corrupted the corporations, who had no choice but to join the gangsters in the insidious corporatist/statist pact designed to divvy up taxpayer loot between them.
As a Washington Examiner article explains, Microsoft “supported Obama’s stimulus, which subsidized computers and also ‘net neutrality’ regulations, which would protect their current profit model.”
It’s either play ball with the knee-breakers or get capped.
How can Americans Deny Consent to government? Here’s a beginning…
Never vote for mainstream Democrats or Republicans or anyone remotely like them.
Never become a cop or support them. They are the hired enforcers of gangland government and can’t protect you from crime anyway.
Never join the military. You won’t be fighting for America’s freedom; you’ll just be an assassin, doing the politicians’ dirty work so they can keep their power, perks and prerogatives while you die.
Be mindful of Jewel’s lyrics in her anthem Life Uncommon:
“Lend your voices only to sounds of freedom
No longer lend your strength to that which you wish to be free from”
Deny consent to government in every way possible.
