Fifth Amendment

This holiday is a dichotomy for me. While I plan to celebrate the American ideal, I must also mourn it’s loss by erosion and atrophy. The fact is that too many Americans have abandoned their love of liberty. They either lack the courage to defend it, or know not what they’ve lost and feebly attempt to disguise their apathy or ignorance with claims of overwork and family obligations.

“I just don’t have time.” “We can’t change anything anyway.” or “I voted! What else can I do?”

While somewhat understandable due to the ‘Hate America First’ crowd populating our higher education system, this situation is absolutely unacceptable.

Pay attention, please!

What could possibly be more important than the world you leave to the family you claim to be working for?

This country was founded with the demand that we citizens hold the government accountable and as such it’s our solemn duty to be vigilant and educate ourselves; especially to question every carrot some politician offers for a block of votes.

Part of me wishes the deniers would just be truthful and admit to their selfish apathetic attitude but even then I’ve had enough of their disregard for the outright treason going on in the high halls of our government.

We should be lighting the streets of Washington DC with torches and pitchforks, pushing carts with caldrons of tar and bags of feathers for every Progressive we can lay our hands on!

Instead, most of the hapless, uneducated, indoctrinated sheeple will celebrate their faux freedoms with government approved USDA beef, cooked with EPA tested charcoal and FDA stamped BBQ sauce served on a table illuminated with gov’t mandated, mercury filled light bulbs that require a permit for disposal, powered with electricity delivered through “smart” meters that will soon be limiting the amount of power they are allowed to consume and the happy serfs will never give a moment’s thought to any of it.

“Thank you, Government for the food we are about to receive…” They may as well say.

Need a loaf of FDA approved bread and a twelve pack of pasteurized processed beer to help numb the senses to your lack of liberty? Go right ahead! You’re free to find the nearest convenience store run by immigrants who receive a tax break and subsidy but if you plan on driving that car, you’d better strap on a seat belt for your own safety. We wouldn’t want you killing yourself in an accident making you unable to pay back the insurance companies who apparently rule our lives because we’re too stoopid and incapable to do so ourselves. Not to mention, if a nice helpful revenue assessor officer of the law decides you’ve had one beer too many because the county and state need to fund a few ongoing, never-ending money pits downtown/highway/school beautification or government vote buying entitlement projects (Hey! This one’s got a job!). You’ll likely be forced to give some specimen in a twisted, technological violation of the Fifth or Fourth amendments to be used as evidence against you in a modern-day kangaroo court. (Ever hear of a No Refusal Law?)

Ah Freedom: Wonder what that felt like. You know, I think I once actually thought we were free, and slowly but surely I realized the illusion of liberty was the curtain of OZ and just like the tale, we aren’t supposed to peel that curtain back. Unfortunately, unlike Dorothy with her traveling band of truth seekers, the man behind the curtain isn’t a cute, cuddly, benevolent old man who resembles our kindly uncle. Behind the curtain, is the great and devouring leviathan, its hour come round at last, now slouching towards Bethlehem to be born. (Apologies to Yeats.)

Whatever hides beyond the veil you can be assured it has no designs for your safety or security except as a ruse to steal more of your freedoms.

Remember the phrase: “It’s for the children.”? Well guess what, we are “the children”. Get used to it. Your body is no longer your property, let alone your land, your vehicle or your actual children. The state now lays claim to them all in more ways I care to count. It takes a village alright. A village of idiots to swallow the lies we’re continually asked to believe.

Enjoy your Fourth of July, comrades.

The “transformation” is almost complete.

‘bot

Note: If this seems unreasonable to you, then I emplore you to get off your ass and DO SOMETHING about it. Donate your time and money to conservative candidates, then STAY involved. We will not turn it around in one election any more than it took one election to get us here. It’s past time to be what the founders intended us to be: Educated, Informed and Involved.

Here’s a Halloween story for you. The judicial system in Texas has been breeding…

Wait for it…

Vampires!

I’m speaking of the recent development that Texas has adopted a policy of no-refusal every weekend, meaning that you are subject to forced blood test if an officer deems you intoxicated and you refuse a breathalyzer.

This is the ultimate intrusion into personal space and private property that has ever occurred. For refusing a breathalyzer, a needle will forcibly penetrate your skin, which has now become the ultimate line of demarcation between you and The State.

Subjects, your overlords demand that you give involuntary testimony in the form of a blood sample. It’s the ultimate truth serum! Except that it can be manipulated. Who trusts their government anymore? Do they really need this much control? Really? Without proof of a crime being committed a person is to be forced to testify, against his will, against himself! Before even a lawyer can be called? What happened to the Fifth Amendment? Fourth Amendment?

Do you feel like cattle yet?

Not boo, but moo.

The ACLU of Texas in 2009, had this to say:

The ACLU of Texas sees the Austin program as part of a disturbing trend occurring all over the state: Law enforcement use of search warrants to obtain blood from drunken driving suspects.  The Austin Police Department recently announced the first “no refusal” weekend as a pilot program which APD plans to repeat on other holiday weekends such as New Year’s Eve.

“Utilizing officers’ time to transport and force Texas drivers who refuse a Breathalyzer test to get their blood drawn isn’t good use of police resources,” said Russell. “Moreover, it does little to help build the much-needed trust between APD and the community because inevitably there will be stories of physical abuse with implementation of this program,” Russell added.

Police have said the program will work this way: Motorists who fail field sobriety tests will be arrested and taken to a mobile unit equipped to give Breathalyzer exams. If suspects refuse, they will be taken to Travis County Jail where a magistrate will be on duty to issue a warrant for blood tests, administered by force if necessary.

Chemical tests don’t lie, after all [sarc]. The problem is, they can be manipulated, as we’ve seen many times such as in the recent Houston crime lab fiasco, in San Francisco, Detroit, and most recently in North Carolina. to name just a few.

Given these abuses of power, how can we give them more? Do any of us actually think they need more power? Why should they have more cameras, more Matrix? More! More! More! our government screams they  need tools to protect us from ourselves.

Enough, I say. Enough!

If the State is that worried about stopping crime, control the freaking border! Oh, but wait. There’s no money in that, is there? Instead we have a racket of insurance and courts and lawyers with the MADD mothers being useful tools in the erosion of our rights. After all, who isn’t against drunk driving? If you protest the intrusion of the state you must be a law breaker or a kook!

We have met the enemy and it is a Vampire Government unrestrained by the people who gave it power.

Where is my wooden stake?
