No government has ever, will ever, or can ever infringe the rights of any citizen. Bashing ‘The Government’ is meaningless, futile, misdirected, and an absolute waste of energy.
It is never ‘The Government’ or ‘The State’ or ‘The Legislature’ or even ‘City Hall’ that issues laws, orders, statutes, or ordinances that infringe your Natural Rights. Nor are such infringements ever enforced by these entities.
Every single infringement upon your Natural and Constitutional Rights, both ordered and executed, is done by people. Individual people vote yea or nay. Individual people process the paperwork. Individual people enforce the infringement.
People get together in a gang, or a mob, and impose their collective will and call themselves ‘The Government’ and wrap their actions in patriotism or moral righteousness or ‘The Law’ and other motives – but at the end of the day it is just people – individual people. Too often, these are bad or self-serving people with personal agendas.
This is why elections are so important. We, the voters, choose the people who go to the legislature, to the governor’s mansion, to the White House, to the Commissioners Office, to City Hall, and to the Sheriff’s Office. If we send the right person into an elected office, we are one person closer to stopping infringements from ‘The Government’. Because the right person will not propose nanny-state nonsense and will roll-back any such nonsense they find on the books. The right person will not enforce unconstitutional laws or rules. The right person will stand up and call Shenanigans! when necessary.
Apathy and non-participation have elected more people than Democrats, Republicans and Independents combined. This year voting in the May Primary is unique, thanks to COVID-19. Voters must take several actions to vote this year, more than merely stopping by their traditional polling location.
If you haven’t voted yet, or even started the process of receiving your ballot – there is still time! You can find complete instructions and contact information on Page 2 of this paper for requesting and casting your ballot.
