We can do's how

The Gay Secretary

We can do what so many other nations have done throughout history, from France to Romania to Iceland, fire the government that ran up that debt without our permission, repudiate most of that odious debt, and start over with a clean slate.

After all, why should We The People pay for government spending that We The People opposed, and more to the point, failed to accomplish any tangible result other than to fund huge bonuses for the very pirates who put us into this mess?

The Founding Fathers gave us the First Amendment so that We The People have the freedom to say "No" to the government and the Founding Fathers gave us the Second Amendment so that We The People could, if necessary, force the government to listen when we say, "No."

The position of this article is that no matter how badly the government has messed up the economy, We The People are obligated to cover the costs no matter how much we may suffer for it. But I see that as the mindset of a slave economy; the masters take and the slaves surrender. Slaves cannot say "no."

There is no freedom without the freedom to say "no."

Americans need to recover their right and will to say "no." We did not create this mess. Indeed when Congress was trying to pass TARP in 2008, 90% of Americans said "no", and Congress refused listen. Trillions have been spent on the public tab, the economy is no better off (indeed it is worse unless you are a Wall Street CEO or member of Congress), and now we will hear an endless series of exhortations from the media about how We" (meaning the "little people") simply MUST accept that they have to pay for the trillions of dollars spent without our permission in this fiasco. When the government taxes you to spend the money on things you do not agree with (such as Wall Street, foreign wars, and weapons for Israel so they can attack Americans in international waters) that is taxation without representation, and in that little country schoolhouse I went to as a child, I was taught that taxation without representation is a legitimate reason to fire the government and start over. And again, that is the reason the Founding Fathers gave us the Second Amendment, which reserves to the people military weapons equal to those of the government itself, in order to enforce the right to say "no."

We The People need to re-learn our right to say "no."

There is no freedom without the freedom to say "no."
