Beck: Two Points of American Politics


From Billy Beck:

I haven't had time to address anything serious here since I've left home. However, here are two thoughts that I've been keeping lately, having to do with the future.

1) I did not see this coming, but I should have: the nomenklatura could lead the way into tax revolt. Even though Daschle has gotten tossed and he won't get to engineer the final destruction of American medicine, he has nonetheless fixed the idea of nomenklatura in the American political conscience. The central question is how many Americans will understand.

2) Recall the admonitions over "standing armies" in the Declaration of Independence. What Jefferson did not foresee is the various police forces representing that threat. I think about the allegiance of the army in times of civil strife in this country, but they are not the central threat. That comes from your local police departments, in league with their septic brethren throughout the land. All political, and tactical and strategic, outlooks should account for this.

SOME POINTS TO KEEP IN MIND REGARDING OUR SYSTEM OF TAXATION:

HALE -V- HENKEL
201 US 43 @74-75 (1906)
"....Individuals power to contract is unlimited.....corporation is a creation of the state...and its power is limited by law."

next,

MARBURY -V- MADISON
1 CRANCH 137 (1803)
"An act of congress repugnant to the constitution can not become law."

and,
BRADY -V- U.S.
324 US 742 (1970)
"Waivers of rights must be voluntary, knowledgable, intelligent acts, done with sufficient awareness of the likely outcome."

also,
BURKS -V- LASKAR
441 US 471 (1979)
Jurisdiction not challenged is presumed to exist.

and dont forget that:
U.S. -V- THROCKMORTON
98 US 61 @65 (1878)
"Fraud vitiates contracts."

and that,
AMERICAN COMMUNICATIONS -V- DOUDS
339 US 382 -453 @443 (1949)
"....it is not the function of government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error."

as well as,
BRUSHABER -V- UNION PACIFIC R.R. CO.
240 US 1 (1916)
Income tax is an excise tax and thus not a direct tax, because all direct taxes must be apportioned.

and,
FLINT -V- STONE TRACEY CO.
220 US 107 (1910)
An individuals labor is his property not subject to tax, income tax is a tax on corporate profits.

and,
FLORA -V- U.S.
357 US 63 (1958)
Our system of taxation is one of voluntary self assessment.

and,
OLIVER -V- HOLSTEAD
86 S.E. 2d 858 (1955)
Wages are not profit.

and finally,
CITY OF MEMPHIS -V- N.T. GREENE
451 US 100 (1981)
"Slavery or involuntary servitude shall not exist in any part of the United States."

.....BUT DONT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT GO TO THE LOCAL LAW LIBRARY AND SEE FOR YOURSELF!

YOURS IN LIBERTY AND IT DONT COME FREE OR EASY.

All talk of the law in reference to taxation is not only futile but stupid. Please pay close attention:

They will change the law to suit their needs as they arise.

There is only one stand to take on this matter and it is moral instead of utilitarian:

"This bread is mine. You cannnot have it."

That is all.

L. Neil Smith noticed point 2 way back in 2005:

"Cops form a culture all to themselves, like professional soldiers, and usually have little to do with those who are not cops. They do call us 'civilians'. I never heard this term 'little people' before. They also call us 'assholes' and say that the public just consists of criminals who haven't been caught yet. I know because I was there at one time.

"Yeah, I understand the theory that they're civilians, too. I repeat that it's bullshit. What they are, in fact, is an occupying military force, with strategic bases in every hamlet in the nation—which is why they and their hangers-on lie to us and possibly to themselves about being civilians, too.

"They are the very standing army that the Founding Fathers were afraid of.

"And for good reason."

Thank you, Bill. I didn't imagine that it was original with me, but I hadn't seen anyone else point it out before I thought of it.
