With the permission of Bob Schulz I have added a clip of Hutton Gibson speaking at the 2004 Give Me Liberty Conference to hearliberty.com
A very good article at Strike The Root today.
The "constitution" isn’t offered freely on a take-it-or-leave it basis like contracts or agreements. Remember, if not a contract, the "constitution" binds no one and creates nothing but is just four really old pieces of paper and ink. Those "services" are provided and paid for on a compulsory basis; your "Consent" has nothing to do with it.
So, to answer the question, NO; the service of protecting "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" is NOT provided in a manner consistent with the above Judeo-Christian ethics:
"Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and stablisheth a city by iniquity!" Habakkuk 2:12.
The idea there’s a "benefit" to people because a group of men and women provide their "services" on a compulsory basis and this so-called "benefit" then somehow "obligates" people to pay "taxes" is preposterous. That’s how the mob does business.
