"If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government..."
Alexander Hamilton
(1757-1804) American statesman, Secretary of the Treasury
The Federalist No. 28.

Reader comments about this quote:
In the Amerika of the occupying statist theocracy, the anti-positive / pro-tyranny police state does not represent We The People. Lysander Spooner described today's Police State's representative, as is averse to a de jure We The People's representative when he said; "A man is no less a slave because he is allowed to choose a new master once in a term of years." Any remnant of a constituent's representative has long sense been betrayed.

    Mike always sets the idea of WE THE PEOPLE on itshead or mean upside down
    When he disagrees with a majority view he claims he speaks for the people and by infe yr enference the people do not and are not capable of speakking ffor themselves. It is a dangerous line that Mike pursues

     -- Waffler, Smith     
    It is neither dangerous nor wrong of Mike to take a stand for, We The People, But is his right and responsibility to do so. The song is put in his heart, through and by Divine Providence. Desire is the mod of operation through which The Spirit of Truth operates. Waffler your statement is taken as a threat, But Mike speaks as bold as a lion, being an attribute of all those called according to the purpose of our Creator, to stand in the face of tyranny and corruption. By way of the Heavenly Doctrines of Liberty and Freedom. It does seem those, that be domesticated all ways follow the herd. It is you , Waffler, that should be afraid. The Avenger does not bear the sword in vain ! As Japan noted that they had woke the sleeping giant. The occupying statist theocracy, wishes to draw us out on the field of battle, thinking that God our Creator does not hear or care. Russell Lowell puts it quite eloquently in his poem, The Present Crisis, Though the cause of evil prosper, yet 'tis Truth alone is strong, And albeit she wander outcast now, I see around her throng Troops of beautiful, tall angels, to enshield her from all wrong. And again, They enslave their children's children who make compromise with sin. Tis as easy to be heroes as to sit the idle slaves Of a legendary virtue carved upon our fathers graves, Worshipers of light ancestral make the present light a crime. So put that in your pipe and smoke it, It might be the last drag you take.!! They must upward still, and onward, who would keep abreast of TRUTH.

    watchman 13, thank you, well said. Waffler thinks that man's rule (especially in large numbers - the larger the better) has more authority and is of greater force than the laws of nature and of nature's God. Waffler thinks that if the legislature passes a statute, at some majority's bequest, that man must stay suspended in air for 2 hours a day, gravity must obey. When Waffler's majority posts a road sign {Deer Crossing], said animals can not J-Walk anywhere else. A few years ago, Waffler even capitulated to rape being ok, if a majority sets forth the rule. Waffler lives in a slave's small box (choosing a new master by hopeful majority, once in a term of years) and is afraid to venture out into the air of freedom where there is no one dictating his every move - he can not fathom such a place.

    Waffler, a side note FYI; Its not that I disagree with a majority, I agree with the law and the order that derives therefrom. Your conception of me speaking for other people is absolutely incorrect. I speak for God given inalienable rights. I believe people are capable of speaking for themselves, whether it be to freedom and glory or tyranny and darkness. I understand how speaking truth about freedom, liberty and inalienable rights may be perceived dangerous to your desired despotic slavery but, I don't address you personally (I address the law, justice, inalienable rights, freedom and liberty) Thank you for the opportunity of pointing that out.
