With Illegitimate Power Comes Illegitimate Laws

Freedom Outpost

Throughout the course of the past year, America has been witness to some of  the most abusive scandals in our nation’s history. From the terrorist attacks  at  Benghazi, to the IRS scandal and the NSA spying program, these scandals only  scratch the surface of the criminal behavior we have been witnessing; not just  from the Obama administration but from many administrations preceding it, as  well. Our so called representatives, many of whom were elected to stop the  corruption and restore something resembling constitutional order to our House  and Senate, have all but turned their backs on the people who have entrusted  them with the duty of representation. Serving in the government was at one time  considered an honor, and men of much greater character served for the purpose  of  preserving liberty and humbly returned to their careers of choice when their  service was done. Today the allure of power and prestige has all but destroyed  any semblance of what it once meant to represent the American people. Acting  out  of greed and a sense of entitlement, our congressmen and senators ignore  the  will of those whose consent gives them authority to govern as they plunder  our  wealth and the fruits of our labor for their own gain. There is little to  no  chance that today’s political elite will solve the financial woes plaguing  America today when they are, in fact, the ones who have realized they can vote  themselves gifts and raises from our public treasury. There is little to no  chance they will return to the arduous chore of representation when the chief  executive grants them status above those whom they are supposed to serve. There  is little to no chance any of this will correct itself as long as people turn a  blind eye for their “fair share.”

Currently in the peoples house of representatives sits speaker John Boehner  who was elected as a tea party candidate. Promising to repeal the Affordable  care act in its entirety upon election Mr. Boehner now sits exempt from a law  his constituents will be forced to participate in. Not only is the entirety of  the congress exempt from the law, they are currently refusing to defund it  knowing full well the usurpation of power it represents.  What kind of  legitimate power does this corrupt body have to exempt itself from the law?  What  authority do they have to force us to submit to a law that has no  constitutional  legitimacy? The fact that it was passed without being read is  enough to render  it unenforceable.

 

According to the ideals of equality enshrined in our constitution, equality  that supports the ideals of natural law in which all men are born with equal  rights this body has no legitimate power to elevate themselves above us and  live  free from laws they use to oppress. They would have no office to exercise  such  power if not for “we the people” who have entrusted them.

In the face of such scandals where it is coming to light that gun running was  the reason four Americans died in Benghazi on September 11 2012, John Boehner,  instead of pursuing an investigation drives on with another part of the  socialist agenda, immigration. Knowing full well the effects legalizing 30  million illegal immigrants will have on our country the progressive republicans  lie to their constituents in an effort to get them to believe amnesty is the  key  to saving the Republican Party.  Real leaders would be ensuring the  American  people that no agenda item will be considered until the truth has been  revealed  concerning Benghazi, as well as the IRS and NSA scandals. How could a  president  involved in so many “scandals” even have a legitimate position from  which to  push an agenda?

Failure to acknowledge the illegitimacy of laws that ignore the Constitution  only renders those turning a blind eye complicit in the destruction of liberty.  

The individuals we elected to represent us are no longer doing so. The truth  is they have long ago sold out their offices to the “money” interests pursuing  global collectivism. We are no longer respected as our representatives now look  down on us from an elevated status from which they rule as opposed to people  who  entrusted them with a job to do. They live off the beads of our sweat and  have  the audacity to tell us we need to redistribute our wealth. Their lies  have this  country teetering closer and closer to an unpleasant civil unrest as  those  believing the lies await their handouts at the cost of those paying for  them.  All the while their wealth power and prestige grow.  The stronger  government  becomes the less our voices are heard as we more and more are viewed  as nothing  but “Human Capital” from which the insatiable appetite of government  draws its  sustaining revenue. The more government grows, the more money it  needs from us.   Instead of respecting our rights to question government they  come to resent the  fact we would even dare; as if to say we are too dumb to  understand what is at  stake. They have come to view themselves as the elite,  and we are mere peasants  who know not what is best for us.  It is time we  remind ourselves of our duty to  hold our elected representatives accountable.  Its time they are reminded that we  the people are the grantors of their power  and their offices belong to us. It’s  time to tell them we want these offices  back.

There is no authority in rules handed down by those who ignore the  law.

Liberty can only be taken from those who are willing to surrender it.
