Anarchy of Government
Unto the Breach ^ | Jan. 20, 2013 | Chris Carter

Posted on 01/20/2013 9:19:39 AM PST by fugazi

When we hear the term “anarchy,” it brings to mind a society with no laws or structure. In the hands of good people, anarchy can represent absolute freedom. One could argue that Americans would be far more prosperous if we were free of the heavy taxes and regulations that hamper our economy today.

But in the hands of the bad, anarchy represents chaos. There is no rule of law to deter criminals; no police force to protect the people or their property; no military to repel foreign invaders.

But that is only if we consider the citizens of a state. Expand the focus and consider anarchy of government.

Merriam-Webster defines anarchy as the “absence or denial of any authority or established order.” Ours is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. We the people are in fact the rightful government of the United States, and those we have elected are mere public servants chosen to handle the affairs of the state according to our will and within the constraints of our Constitution.

Considering the history of our federal government in recent years – particularly the behavior of this Congress and administration – we can see an escalating trend of disregard for the established order of our Constitution and an increasing denial of the people’s authority over government.

No different than a robot in a science fiction movie that becomes “self-aware” and wrecks havoc on it’s former human masters, our government has also become self-aware: realizing, seemingly, that it is no longer the servant of the people, but the master. No longer bound by the Constitution, but all-powerful.

Free people may only abandon their God-given absolute liberty in favor of entering into a social compact, if civil society is the greater good. Once government no longer has the consent of the people, advancing policies that hamper liberty and prosperity, it is no longer the greater good.

Bingo; an excellent summary of human nature, history and political science all wrapped up in one article.AS Ben Franklin said “Those that would sacrifice liberty for security will in the end have neither, nor deserve neither.” The government going from the servant of the people to the slave master of the people...pathetic. Wake up, America, it’s approaching midnight....

We are becoming more Socialist and losing civil liberties and economic freedoms. And we become more impoverished.

You bet we are- it’s NO accident that his highness asked Americans to spy on their nioehgbors, to ‘report anythign suspicious to the white hosue that htey come across online’, that doctors becoem informers, and citizens watch for ‘danger signals’ (as determiend by the govenrment ie: anyoen thta says anythign not complimentary abotu dear leader) etc etc etc- and now wer’re all goign to be mandadted into gettign mentally evaluated if we want or own a gun’?

Take htier guns away, get neighbor to spy on neighbor and report anythign they see or hear to the govenrment, limit what can be said online (under the guise of hte ‘fairness act), have internet users report what they read onlien ot hte whitehouse- Flyign drones over the ocutnry ot spy on citizens, on and on it goes

Folks- I just heard an idiot from the national gun victims group state that ‘the idea of ‘legal gun owners’ uis strange to me’ because ‘legal gun owners ‘may at soem point’ becoem criminals with a gun’

Do you see the line that these idiots on the left are goign in? They are attemptign to ban guns and trample rights on the basis that ‘a law abidign person ‘may at soem point’ becoem a law breakign citizen’ and that ‘they should not be allowed the ‘tools’ to become law breakers’ kkkuomo is actually doing htis very thing by requiring mental health evaluations for everyone who owns a gun or wants a gun- and you can bet your farm that the evaluators WILL FIND soem ‘potential red flags’ (Whether they take hte guns away immediately, or not, is not the issue- the fact is that there will be little footnotes at the bottom of the evaluations ‘for further use’ when confiscations begin.

[[We are becoming more Socialist and losing civil liberties and economic freedoms]]

We’re goign to have to coem to grips with this fact- because apaprnetly, thetre are NOT enough peopel in htis coutnry willing ot stand up agaisnt tyranny any longer- the govenrment promisses a $200 dollar a year ‘stimulus check’ and Americans think they are beign handed the world and are willign ot give up all manner of rights in order to ‘git dat check’

I don’t think that person should be allowed to speak freely about gun laws. Because if he feels free to speak he may at some point say something seditious.

I think the ones needing background checks are those that seek public office. Not saying a Marxist revolutionary couldn’t become senator or president, just that America should know the kind of folks that are in government.

Sedition and inssurection talk only abotu rebellion agaisnt the law- if a tyranical governement tries to thwart the law, then the peopel have a duty to correct the matter- and can not be called seditious because htey are NOT rebellign against the law or authority because thsoe that are supposed to be in authority and suppsoed to be upholdign hte law, are NOT doign hteir job and no logner have the right to be in authority- infact, thse peopel in authority positions are beign seditious for disobeying the laws already established, and it is the duty of Americans to throw these peopel out of office or to cut off theuir funding until they leave- they aren’t doign hteir jobs, and are disobeying hte law, and shoudl NOT be paid for failign to do their job and uphold the law and hte will of the people
