Freedom and the Constitution

I frequently hear people use “freedom” and “Constitution” in the same sentence, as if freedom is dependent upon the document. I hate to burst a few bubbles out there, but it just isn’t true.

Now, before anyone jumps to conclusions and gets their panties in a wad I want you all to take a deep breath, calm down, open your minds and try to think outside of your conditioning.

Here are a couple of things to keep in the back of your mind as you read further.

Webster’s Dictionary online says that “slavery” is “submission to a dominating influence.” It also says that definition of “free” is “not subject to the control or domination of another.”

So, to recap, if you are forced to submit to a dominating influence you are a slave.

By its very nature, government is a “dominating influence” to which you must submit or suffer loss.

Citizens are forced to get permission for everything under the Sun, including but not limited to building a house, getting married, starting a business, driving a car, selling certain types of merchandise, etc. In addition, your wealth is forcibly taken from you through taxation and fines.

“How does the Constitution fit into all this,” you ask? The Constitution is the foundation of the United States’ system of government which basically enables these types of things, either directly or indirectly.

Examples include:

“Legislative power” (control): Article 1, Section 1

“Taxes” (theft): Article 1, Sections 2, 7, 8, 9 & 10

“Regulate Commerce” (interfere in the marketplace): Article 1, Section 8

“Bankruptcy” (using government power to get out of repaying all or part of a person’s debt): Article 1, Section 8

Manipulate the value of currency: Article 1, Section 8

Hold you against your will when they determine emergency conditions exist in the country: Article 1, Section 9

Inspecting your imported or exported goods, and taxing you to fund it all: Article I, Section 10

“Executive Power” (control): Article 2, Section 1

President’s salary (funded through theft): Article 2, Section 1

Presidential Oath (he must swear to uphold this document and all of its slavery-enabling clauses!): Article 2, Section 1

President’s job to make sure all laws are “faithfully executed” (control): Article 2, Section 2

“Judicial Power” (control): Article 3, Section 1

Drag you into court and deliver punishment for crimes: Article 4, Section 2 (and some examples of “crime” around the US include walking down the street with an ice cream cone in your pocket (KY), putting a couch in your garage (FL), or conducting a puppet show from your balcony (NY).)

Guarantee a Republican form of government (promise of the manner in which they will rule you): Article 3, Section 4

Constitution will be the “supreme Law of the Land” (control): Article 6

Soldiers can be quartered in your home if “prescribed by law”: Amendment 3

Government can break in and search your belongings if it feels the need: Amendment 4

Government can kidnap you and force you to stand trial: Amendment 5

Government can take your property for a public use, if they give you what they feel is “just compensation”: Amendment 5

If government kidnaps you and forces you to stand trial, they will make every effort to give you a speedy trial and allow to bring witnesses to testify on your behalf: Amendment 6

No slavery or involuntary servitude, unless you violate one of their laws: Amendment 13

Government can deprive you of “life, liberty or property” with due process of law: Amendment 14, Section 1

“Public debt” (they spend, you pay): Amendment 14, Section 4

Stealing your money (income tax): Amendment 16

Prohibited alcoholic beverages: Amendment 18 (eventually repealed)

And let’s not forget that owning slaves was recognized and permitted under this Constitution.

As I was saying, “Freedom” and “Constitution” should never be used together, because they are incompatible–and (police) actions always speak louder than words (on paper).

    This was an excellent blog and very well researched. Hopefully it can help awaken the Constitution cult we have being led by fake Government opposition telling the people Constitutional Government is the way to end enslavement.

    How do you figure anyone is enslaved as long as they are free to leave?

      You can leave, at least for now, but the laws of the United States follow you wherever you go, regardless of whether or not the laws in the visited country are more relaxed (i.e. you can’t buy weed in a coffee shop in Holland, even though the locals can). If you don’t believe it, ask the State Department.

        You can renounce your citizenship and the U.S. laws will not follow you. If you chose not to then you live under the Constitution voluntarily.

        That is absolutely ridiculous. The laws of this country follow you no matter where I go (ask the State Department, if you don’t believe it); I never asked for any “citizenship”; and I shouldn’t have to change anything about myself, or “renounce” anything, in order to enjoy complete freedom.

    @ Terry: “You’re free to leave.”

    Bullshit. Do not try to paint this statement as something carrying any voluntary notions. Assuming you can somehow escape the state, it is still a moot point; do we own our property or does the government? What you’re advocating is nothing more sophisticated than conquest. The state bound people to the constitution without their consent, and also bound future generations and territory expansions indefinitely, and in effect state that you can do as the feudal lords and kings say or you can be conquered, expelled, or killed. I didn’t agree to shit, and my nationality is just an accident of birth as it is for everyone.

    Putting a gun to someone’s head and and telling them that if they don’t forfeit their home and leave that ruler’s arbitrary territory, they are voluntarily living at the mercy of the ruler’s whims and killed or caged if they resist is absolute poppycock.
