This is an interesting email sent to me (here). I would like to make an addition to it. In its most simplest form, being "free" is the ability to completely provide for yourself, all NEEDS met, independently, without interference from another entity. It should be obvious to even the most simplest of minds that this is unattainable here in America.
What do you think would happen if you decided to be "free"? I will create the basic scenario of freedom. Move yourself and family to a piece of public/empty land. Somewhere "out of the way" so you can unplug from the system...pick a place. Build yourself a nice little log cabin with the trees on that land. Plant a garden. Kill game and fish as needed. Reminiscent of "Little house on the prairie" isn't it? Can anyone claim that the Engals weren't totally free?
What would we run into if we tried that today?
Conclusion: Unless you pay rent to a landlord, or buy public land back from the government, which was never really theirs - public land not government land- you will not have a place to hang your hat.
2) You would need to buy a permit (pay the government) to cut trees down to build that house, with the possibility of paying for an environmental study to determine the "impact" of the trees you wish to cut down and use.
3) You would need to buy a permit (pay the government) for that house that you want to build. Pay more for the water and septic permit.
4) Depending on which county you are in, you may need to buy a soil cultivation permit, for gardening, which is typically required for any soil disturbance over 100 square feet (10'X10').
5) Don't get caught killing any Deer or Elk for food without paying the government for a hunting "license". Then don't take more than one per year. And you only get a couple of weeks to get it...Good luck with the Department of Fish and Wildlife (government) scaring off the Deer and Elk with their helicopters during those few weeks that you can hunt.
Its impossible to legally be free. Even if it were possible to live on a unclaimed piece of property without being arrested, you would have to "plug back in" to the system, work for someone else to earn the fees necessary for all the permits so you could then work at home gardening, building, hunting to sustain yourself. That process just made you a "slave".
Before anyone falls into the trap of arguing that the government is "just doing its job" and "we need all this, where would we be without it?" I would urge you to reread the constitution and discover EXACTLY what the government was SUPPOSED to do. The government was supposed to "protect the sovereignty of the United States". This means that when governments and their arrogant leaders get "pissy" with other governments and other arrogant leaders, our slaves get to go and kill their slaves. To many people this is very harsh. My answer is TOO BAD, pull out the prime time I.V. and open your eyes to the big picture!..
The ONLY remedy is to enforce The Plan and reinstate God’s Perfect Laws of Liberty:-
I should have added to Kevins’ message that what he says is the reason WHY God prohibited the sale of a person’s land, so that he would always be able to feed himself and his family and never become anyone’s slave:-
King of kings’ Bible
Leviticus 25:10 And ye shall hallow the
fiftieth year, and proclaim Liberty throughout [all] the land
the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a Jubile unto you; and ye shall
return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man
unto his family.
25:11 A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather [the grapes] in it of thy vine undressed.
25:12 For it [is] The Jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.
25:13 In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession.
25:14 And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest [ought] of thy neighbour's hand, ye shall not oppress one another:
25:15 According to the number of years after The Jubile thou shalt buy of thy neighbour, [and] according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee:
25:16 According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for [according] to the number [of the years] of the fruits doth he sell unto thee.
25:17 Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I [am] the "I AM" your God.
25:18 Wherefore ye shall do My Statutes, and keep My Judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety.
25:19 And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety.
25:20 And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase:
25:21 Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years.
25:22 And ye shall sow the eighth year, and eat [yet] of old fruit until the ninth year; until her fruits come in ye shall eat [of] the old [store].
25:23 The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land [is] Mine;
for ye [are] strangers and sojourners with Me.
25:24 And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.
25:25 If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away [some] of his possession, and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold.
25:26 And if the man have none to redeem it, and himself be able to redeem it;
25:27 Then let him count the years of the sale thereof, and restore the overplus unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may return unto his possession.
25:28 But if he be not able to restore [it] to him, then that which is sold shall remain in the hand of him that hath bought it until the year of jubile: and in The Jubile it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession.
25:29 And if a man sell a dwelling house in a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; [within] a full year may he redeem it.
25:30 And if it be not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that [is] in the walled city shall be established for ever to him that bought it throughout his generations: it shall not go out in The Jubile.
25:31 But the houses of the villages which have no wall round about them shall be counted as the fields of the country: they may be redeemed, and they shall go out in The Jubile.
