The Gap Between Americans Who Want To Govern Themselves And...

“The Gap Between Americans Who Want To Govern Themselves And Politicians Who Want To Rule Over Them May Be As Big Today As The Gap Between The Colonies And England During The 18th Century … The American People Don't Want To Be Governed From The Left, The Right, Or The Center. They Want To Govern Themselves” Pollster Scott Rasmussen notes: The gap between Americans who want to govern themselves and politicians who want to rule over them may be as big today as the gap between the colonies and England during the 18th century. *** The American people don't want to be governed from the left, the right, or the center. They want to govern themselves. Rasmussen polls bolster this statement, showing higher and higher percentages of Americans who say that politicians are not acting with the "consent of the governed". Postscript: Yves Smith argues: Rasmussen is the preferred pollster for the right wing. *** Nevertheless, Rasmussen has been conducting this sort of poll over time, so changes in sentiment are still germane.

 Upon review, (over 20 years) I can say the gap between those seeking the independence of self-governance and the collectivist parasites is actually much wider than it was in 1775.  Colonists could always escape westward into the frontiers. And when King George's men showed up to oppress them, the patriots could match them weapon for weapon, producing them in their own workshops. They did not have "Panopticon" surveillance or aircraft to worry about. Their taxes and regulations were miniscule compared to ours. We have no hope of matching Uncle Sam's military/police weaponry with the work of our own hands. But we must live free or die trying! Degrading slavery is unacceptable. No king but Jesus!

Government tries to tell us that they (Government) are the result of us governing ourselves. They try to do it in such a way that we will be pacified. They hide what they are really doing behind multitudes of laws and regulations so that we have a hard time determining if they are really what they say they, are or not.

The people of the early American colonies were smart. They looked at what was right and what was wrong rather than at the rules and laws. They made their judgments based on what was right and what was wrong rather than on the rules and laws. This is the reason that they fought so hard - even died - to adjust the laws to what was right and what was wrong.

The question is, what does it take for the Americans of today to determine correctly what is right and what is wrong?

Is it right or wrong for Americans to spend years in jail waiting for a speedy trial?

Is it right or wrong for a president to use the military as his own personal army?

Is it right or wrong to bypass the Constitutionally forbidden income tax with legal language that causes a tax to happen that is just the same (or worse) as the forbidden income tax would be, yet is not the forbidden income tax?

Is it right or wrong to bypass the Constitutionally forbidden central banking system with legal language that makes a private bank - the Federal Reserve Bank - act just the same (or worse) than a central Government bank would act?

Is it right or wrong to use the treachery of the Fed and the income tax to steal the labors of the people, and to use these labors (in the form of money) to cause havoc and wars around the world?

So, which gap is bigger? The one between We The People and the U.S. Government? Or the one between the Colonies and England during the 18th century?
