Yes, Time has come for a revolt

A missive from the editor
Fighting for freedom
The United States federal government has violated its Constitution many times. These violations against the soveriegnty of the people prove its tyranny.
The time has come for the people of this nation to stand up and demand the reinstitution of the Bill of Rights. If the god-given rights of the people are not restored in a timely manner the people need and are right to take up arms against it.
Today the people are only free during elections and that is not a certainty any longer. The very act of electing your leaders does not make you free. You are free when there are certain inalienable rights that those leaders cannot ever steal from you.
We no longer enjoy such a freedom. The second amendment has been violated as many as 20,000 times in this nation according to some reports. It has been promised by those holding office to be violated many more times.
Now even the first amendment is under fire from everything from Universities with their 'speech codes', to the United Nations. The UN itself is an entirely illegitimate organization, has called for permits and licensing of webpages.
The media, once a watch-dog of the government has become nothing more than a cheerleader. The journalists of today feel threatened by the internet, a tool of communications which they fear bypasses thier ability to desiminate information at thier leisure.
Journalists want to have journalism considered a profession. They want journalism to be practiced only by those so ordained such as is with medicine.
Freedom has withered to the point where the Constitution is meaningless in the operation of government. The rights of the states has become whatever the federal bureaucracy says.
Illegal acts of government are ignored because they are, in some instances popular. The media continues to act in a role desiring further expanding of government. The more government there is, the less freedom exists.
How long shall we continue on our present course toward statism? The illegimate government needs to be reigned in as soon as possible. A revolt is necessary of one sort or another to grasp the attention of the general population. Action is required if we are to over-come the goliath of the bureaucracy.
Today government on every level acts as if the will of the people have no merit. They act as if they bestow whatever rights and benefits the people enjoy. They act as if the government has the power to give and to take power and sovereingty without regard to anything else. They act as if the power were theirs to give and not the power guaranteed by God alone.
As Thomas Paine put it:

"...we discover that governments must have arisen either out of the people or over the people. In those which have arisen out of the people, the individuals themselves, each in his own personal and soveriegn right, have entered into a compact with each other to produce a government; and this is the only mode in which governments have a right to arise.
This compact is the constitution, and a constitution is not a thing in name only, but in fact. Whenever it cannot be produced in visible form, there is none. A constitution is a thing antecedent to government, and a government is only its creature. The constitution of a country is not the act of its government, but of the people constituting its government.
Can, then, Mr.Burke produce the English constitution? He cannot, for no such thing exists, nor ever did exist. The English government is one of those which arose out of a conquest, and not out of society, and consequently it arose over the people; and though it has been much modified since the time of William the Conqueror, the country has never yet regenerated itself, and is therefor without a constitution.
"

These words are in The Rights of Man which was written in response to Edmund Burke whom criticized the French revolution.

Therefore I find it necessary to call for a revolution and the restoration of Constitutional rule in these United States. The illegitimacy of this government has come to the point of being indisputable. There is hardly an agency within it which is in alignment with the Constitution.
There are those who believe that the government of today is a necessary evil, but I ask if it truly is necessary in its present form?
Where in the Constitution does this government derive its power to regulate the first amendment? The second? and all the others?
You cannot regulate an inalienable right, it is a contradiction and a violation of the rights we are supposed to enjoy in this land.
My call to arms is not necessarily the call for an armed struggle against the leviathan state. It is not necessarily the call for the active destruction of state properties, it being such today as a form of suicide.
What I call for today is the active mass non-compliance with the illegimate laws and acts of the state. For if a movement be large enough it does not need the majority to take part.
Make the census an example; only answer the questions which are prescribed by the original founders to be answered. Tell them where you live and the number if persons in your household. No other of the questions have a legitimate purpose for this government.
Non-compliance on many measures should be the rule on all matters pertaining to illegal government. Whether it be in regard to weapons or websites.
If such actions are widespread it may lead to the restoration of the Constitution. It may also lead to armed conflict, so be it. Either way may be necessary in the struggle for a just government.
The city on the hill is under siege today by the forces of statism. I might also remind you, those reading this, that freedom has never been free. In modern times I believe that such sentiment as mine to be shared by many across the nation, and even the world. I believe the cause is just and that which we sacrifice to ensure Constitutional rule will be worth it.
