AN AMERICAN HERESY

AN AMERICAN HERESY

Any rational discussion of prohibition is considered heresy by America’s ruling establishment du jour. Since I am by nature hostile to Utopian Folly and those who profit from it, I am fiercely determined to share the conclusions I’ve drawn from a long and intense study of the intrinsically criminal enterprise referred to as: The War on Drugs.

So, what are the prohibitionists afraid of? Do they fear propagation of the truth that the problem they pretend to address is not only insoluble but grossly exaggerated? Are they afraid too, that folks will wise up to the fact that a personal vice is not a crime? Are they also afraid of the loss in Plundering Privilege that might accompany repeal? Since the real cause of a problem must be identified before any serious attempt at a solution can be implemented, I submit that there is a sinister financial motive behind the worsening oppression.

Cui bono?

The Declaration of Independence is America’s fundamental legal source and the final philosophical authority on lawful power. The Declaration is an unamendable promise made to every American. It is in fact a declaraory judgment recorded by the Second Continental Congress, July 4, 1776.

The Constitution was created to fulfill the promise of the Declaration. If it can be said that it has a weakness, it is the interpretive vulnerability of the Commerce Clause. The Commerce Clause is the Constitution’s Achilles’ heel. It has given the unprincipled opportunists of America’s professional politician and lawyer burdened legislative bodies virtually unbridled lawmaking power. By wrongful employment of the Commerce Clause, America’s legislators have successfully alienated unalienable rights. Politicians called judges have underwritten the crimes of the elected legislators and executives, and by so doing have become criminals themselves.

American government has become a protection racket by which a Judicial Industry continues to grow like some evil hydra. Those entrusted with our most sacred liberties have become the greed-driven destroyers of those liberties.

Whether consciously or not, individuals and factions are driven by selfish interests. In the absence of ruthless personal accountability, America will continue to degenerate into a totalitarian state, serving the few at the expense of the many.

In politics and government there is no such thing as self-limiting power, so, a significant number of Citizens must act on the certainty that elections alone will never salvage the American Ideal that is so eloquently expressed in the Unanimous Declaration.

Prohibition has created an unacceptable precedent for unlawful power. The legal system of precedents that has supplanted the legitimate Law of the Land has little to do with justice and everything to do with plunder and profit. Judges have become revenue collectors and the courts have become instruments of legal extortion. The outrageous legal income that is produced by unlawful prohibition and other unlawful power goes unnoticed by most folks. But Folks, We the People have a moral duty to ourselves and to our posterity to wake up and destroy the monster . . . in detail.

The Judicial Industry has no interest in ending the evil Drug War. The unfortunate arrested victims and the taxpayers will continue to lose while the judicial plunderers grow richer.

The moral legitimacy of laws that are systematically violated with a clear conscience by more than 30 million or more Americans must be seriously questioned.
