    YES ! ! ! Absolutely; we (those who love freedom, liberty and the relating laws of nature and of nature's God) hold this truth to be self evident. Of course, those patrons of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land have extreme revulsion with such concept. Said despotic patrons require compelled compliance, government license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, Social Security, police state confiscations, etc.), non/ANTI-recognition of perfected allodium and inalienable right(s) and a national establishment of religion supremacy.

    It's a classic, eh, Mike? ;-) The concept should be easily adopted by the global citizenry as fundamental.  The road out of serfdom starts there.
