Whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.” –Thomas Jefferson

This now seems to be the whole of our government.  The founding fathers placed in the bill of rights the 10th amendment which in principle states that whatever is not EXPLICITLY delegated to the Federal Government is FORBIDDEN for it to do or be involved in.  If no explicit authorization, then any action on the matter is reserved for the citizens of each State.  It is to be under their jurisdiction, NOT the Federal Governments.

When this line is crossed the actions of the Federal Government become illegitimate and its actions mere usurpation.  The Federal Government illegally abrogates the liberties of once free men.  They are the criminals, but because of the ignorance of the American people, are above prosecution and will use force to fine, convict and incarcerate anyone who violates the dictates of its illegal whims codified as “law”.

It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.”- James Madison

Because The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are very really simple and straight forward, our government hires intellectuals to obfuscate the plain meaning of our founding and governing documents…

These intellectuals are the organs which modern society has developed for spreading knowledge and ideas, and it is their convictions and opinions which operate as the sieve through which all new conceptions must pass before they can reach the masses.  F.A. Hayek

…the majority must be persuaded by ideology that their government is good, wise and, at least, inevitable, and certainly better than other conceivable alternatives. Promoting this ideology among the people is the vital social task of the “intellectuals.” Murray N. Rothbard, Anatomy of the State.

The intellectuals are, therefore, the “opinion-molders” in society. And since it is precisely a molding of opinion that the State most desperately needs, the basis for age-old alliance between the State and the intellectuals becomes clear.  Murray N. Rothbard, Anatomy of the State

…and has worked very hard to keep sound economic thought (Austrian) out of the classroom and instead teaching socialist charlatanism (Keynesian economics).  This, of course requires the control of the education system.

All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.  John Adams

And so the American experiment in freedom and liberty has just become another system of socialistic plunder and oppression.

“Experience has shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”  Thomas Jefferson

When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it. Frederic Bastiat

This is what the founders feared would happen and why they placed the clauses in the Declaration of Independence words feared by our government and why they hate gun rights.

That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it  Declaration of Independence

it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.  Declaration of Independence

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.  Noah Webster (writing under the nom de plume of “A Citizen of America”), An Examination Into the Leading Principles of the Constitution (October 17, 1787).
