Weekly Freedom Report: No Victim, No Crime

Why “Breaking” the Law is Sometimes the Right Thing

You read the title right. Breaking the law is sometimes the right thing. When we pursue our passion for writing, it’s a must to write about issues the masses are too afraid to speak of outside the private scope of their homes.
Yet, tyranny begins in public and ends in the home.
Just ask anyone in North Korea, but let’s keep our fingers crossed the issues over there are changing soon.
It’s amazing how often those on both the right and left are pro-incarceration.
Why are they pro-incarceration for even the most victimless crimes?
America incarcerates more individuals than any nation on Earth, and its because of something called the prison-industrial complex. Like the military-industrial complex where America creates enemies abroad to fuel their own interests, often flip-flopping on who the real enemy is (al-Qaeda is now an ally of America’s in Syria), the prison-industrial complex needs strict rules and regulations to continue making money.
Who makes money?
Large contracting companies for building and maintaining prisons, often gaining government subsidies and money from government in the process, the state, because the more we incarcerate, the more tax dollars must be pumped into the unconstitutional system, and at the local level, law enforcement. Again, the locality, state, and feds receive the dough.

 

Americans Have a Right to Resist
Here’s something they cover briefly in school, but never into much detail: Americans have a right to resist.
You can plead the Fourth and Fifth Amendments. The Fourth Amendment to the Bill of Rights states the government must have written warrants to search and seize. The Fifth states unless an individual is causing public danger beyond a shadow of a doubt, they have zero obligation to confess or answer any crime-related questions.
For instance, take DUI checkpoints. While I commend the state for at least telling people where and when they’ll take place, though if you follow or are friends with cops, they’re hardcore against this (state quotas, people!), you have a right to surpass a checkpoint.
1) Law enforcement has absolutely no written warrant to search your vehicle, and if they do, they’re in violation of the law.
2) Regarding the Fifth, it cannot be proven you’re driving under the influence, therefore you cannot be detained or even questioned for violating the law.

 

The Big ‘Why?’
Why do people follow and accept unjust laws?
There are many reasons to this, but the primary reason, from my prodding and questioning, stems from people feeling a sense of three things:
1) Powerlessness, or the belief they cannot change a law or “the way it is.”
2) Mental Inferiority, or the belief those elected into government are brighter, wiser, and more enlightened than ourselves.
3) An overwhelming sense of security. We’ve been cognitively conditioned into believing government exists to take care of us. However, as history points out, government has failed time and again to take care of its own people unless its existence focuses on freedom, meaning it doesn’t infringe upon individual rights.

 

 

When A Cop Orders You to Stop, You Stop?

This is the mentality of what I call Conservative America, or the Republican Party. I tend to pick on the Republicans more than I do the Democrats because Republicans run on a small government platform, which as we’ve seen during recent events in the Trump Administration and a GOP-controlled Congress, is anything but small government.
Moreover, I can’t help but notice NASCAR fans tend to possess a conservative background, and many tend to hold true to the ‘back the blue’ mentality. Yet, many fail to realize something: NASCAR’s roots lay in moonshiners modifying their vehicles to outrun police during the prohibition era.
The heroes who are credited with NASCAR’s infancy are ex-cons who were exercising their right to resist, as the government has zero right to infringe upon the individual rights of another, as prohibition has done.
Again, no victim, no crime.
But the government and the police were committing the crimes.
Why?
They took part in victimizing people who owned, ran, and worked in the alcohol business, and the same can be seen today with marijuana, though this is now changing much to the dismay of Conservative America.
Again, hypocrisy exists on both sides of the equation, but conservatives are quick to point out liberal hypocrisy while attempting to hide their own.
In a conservative sport like stock car racing whose roots lay in “criminal” enterprise and the “black” market who exercised constitutional rights, it’s always good to have a history lesson or refresher.

 

 

Conclusion

The above is one of many examples where victimless crimes have an aggressor, the government, and they have victims, the people. It’s not the other way around as the government would like to lead one to believe.
Instead, free market enterprises are victimized by all three branches of government. Such victimization occurs when barriers to entry within a certain market are raised or during the era of prohibition, prohibited. The same can be seen today in the marijuana industry, and several other legal industries, where government price fixes and subsidizes certain companies in favor of others.
At the end of the day, needless regulations hurt small businesses while fueling corporations. Criminalizing certain enterprises kills jobs and free market practices, while raising the prison and military-industrial complex increases a tax burden on the middle class, where government actively participates in choosing the winners and losers in today’s society.

Your Passion Makes You

The Issues You Hold Dear Deserve to be Heard

 
What is it about libertarian principles that I hold so important I feel they need to be heard through my writing, social media posting, and in my upcoming trilogy, Age of Columbia? Well, I can write a book about it, but former Congressman Ron Paul beat me to the punch and has done a fantastic job.

 
But, why not conservative or liberal?

 
Why libertarian?

 
What do we believe in?

 

 

Lies by Washington

 
Everything Washington is against, to be honest. We’re non-interventionist, believers in false flags, fiscally conservative, pro-free market (real free market, not the crony stuff we see here in the States), we don’t like taxes of any kind, we’re not believers in safety nets but we do love charities, and last but never least, we believe in the Bill of Rights.

 
Well, the Bill of Rights have been usurped in the United States. They tell us what we can and cannot say in public, our right to bear arms is threatened daily, police checkpoints violate the fourth and fifth amendments, we’re detaining people without due process for suspecting them of criminal acts, we’re being taxed at gunpoint, federal laws violate the tenth, and I’m just getting started on the erosion of liberty in America.

 
So, I’ve taken it upon myself, as others have, to write, speak, and broadcast about the erosion of liberty in America.

 
What are other ways we’re seeing our freedom taken away?

 
If you follow my blog, you know I’m anti-public school. Vladimir Lenin once said to give him four years to teach children and the seed he’s sown will never be uprooted.

 
America has given our government thirteen years to plant the seed of socialism and communism within its youth.

 
Want more fun?

 
During the Vietnam War era, college students (many from the minority elite) were exempted draft status due to their status as college students. The poor kids got to go and fight communism while those with money stayed home to get more indoctrinated into communism, fueled by the collectivist Left.

 
So, my antagonizing of the Left and Right are just this: both the Left and Right are pro-war and pro-US intervention. This can be proven when George W. Bush started several conflicts in the Middle East, while a secular regime in Libya was overthrown by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton only for an extremist regime to takeover which is now participating in a slave trade. Today, Donald Trump is beating war drums with Russia, Iran, Syria, and even Cuba, which many libertarian experts are saying this is the closest we’ve been to World War III since the Cuban Missile Crisis back in 1962.

 
It’s an interesting time to be alive. Many say it’s a dangerous time to be alive, but each era has had its pandemics. It’s an interesting time to be alive. At the push of a button, one man or woman two-thousand miles away can do some serious damage at any given time. It’s dangerous, yes, but interesting. This will go down in history books, and at the very least some are predicting this is Cold War II.

 

Relating to Passion

 
So, my passion for writing intertwines with history and politics. Age of Columbia is a conflict between an American Empire resembling force and a budding Constitutional Republic. It’s a story of a fight between America as it is today, and America as the Founding Fathers envisioned it. It’s Libertarian America versus America the Establishment.

 
It’s America versus America.

 
My passion is getting the libertarian message out into the public atmosphere. We must realize the importance of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We must remember what public school teaches us and why, parents, if you’re reading this, I believe nothing is more detrimental than sending your children to these political prisons.
I’ve talked to people who’ve been homeschooled, and the results speak wonders. Their vocabulary and grammar are off the charts, their spectrum is broadened to the point they’re proficient in philosophy, free market economics, financial planning, the works. They’re more successful and the “lacking social skills” many pro-statist public school teachers preach is the biggest myth you will ever hear.

 
Parents, I urge you to seek out the Ron Paul Curriculum, which teaches real history, such as the real tensions which led to the American Civil War among others (states rights versus strong, centrally-planned government), math which your kids will use throughout life, and much more listed in the above paragraph. I’ve studied this program and I wish it were around when I grew up, but my parents never would’ve pulled me from public school. Sadly.

 

 

Don’t Worry About Others

 
Hey, people think I’m off my rocker when I talk this way, but others realize my sanity. Put it this way: when you release your passion into the universe you’re going to have naysayers. You’re going to have people try to bring you down to their level, because they’re not courageous enough to speak about important issues. Either that or they don’t care, which couldn’t be more dangerous.

 
Your friends may turn on you. Some will accuse you of being an attention seeker. Others will tell you to grow up and get a real job. They’re societal drones, and nothing more. They’ve already accepted and bowed down to their governmental or employer overlords. They hand taxes over while being held at gunpoint. Their governmental overlords tell them they own land, and in some cases personal property, but you’re going to be paying taxes on it until death does its part. They give you public social security to hold you up and force you to bow down and put all your trust in Big Brother.

 
And they’ll call you crazy. In my case, I’ve been labeled anti-patriotic because I question my government’s domestic and foreign policy. I’ve been called anti-military because I don’t believe in military-intervention. I’ve been called a Middle Eastern and Russian apologist because I don’t believe the media is telling us the truth on all issues regarding them, one good example can be last weekend’s alleged chemical attacks.

 
So, be ready to make a few enemies, but in doing so you’ll make many more friends, friends who think like you and are on the same mission as you.
