Word

“Political rights do not originate in parliaments; they are rather forced upon them from without. … They do not exist because they have been legally set down on a piece of paper, but only when they have become the ingrown habit of a people, and when any attempt to impair them will meet with the violent resistance of the populace. … All political rights and liberties which people enjoy today, they do not owe to the good will of their governments, but to their own strength. … Great mass movements and whole revolutions have been necessary to wrest them from the ruling classes, who would never have consented to them voluntarily.”

-- Rudolf Rocker, author of Pioneers of American Freedom, as cited here

Ponder those words when your governments, national, state and local, ask you to "give back."
Or ORDER you to. Is Rangel in prison yet? Oh, no, that's right, there was a deal made.
