Taxation Without Representation

Being forced to pay taxes while not having adequate representation in government was one of the reasons for the Revolution. It is my belief that a new Revolution is brewing beneath the unsettled surfaces of our country, and possibly the world. Governments have been bought by corporations and private interests for some time now. We once were free from oppression, including a fiat currency, but in the last 100 or so years we have digressed.

Instead of remaining focused on the liberties due to every woman and man, we figure out ways to divide ourselves, or allow ourselves to be divided, while failing to see the true enemy — our humongous government.

  1. When we need a license to hunt and fish, we are no longer free.
  2. When we are arrested for consuming plants and other things freely available in nature, we are no longer free.
  3. When we pay taxes, we are no longer free.

As a millennial, I feel underrepresented in both local and federal branches of the government. Things are still mostly run by rich white men with alot to lose. They have paraded their shenanigans in front of us for too long. It’s time for the corrupt system to have a wrench thrown in it.

Unfortunately, I am not sure how to do this, other than blog and passionately reason with individuals when socializing. It seems to be a never-ending battle. Most people are content with the status quo.

Fortunately, I have met more freedom fighters in Colorado than expected. The people here do have a voice, and they exercise their right to be heard. That’s how cannabis was made legal. I think we may see other progressive measures in the next 5-10 years.

If a revolution were to break out, I think Colorado would take the lead. It’s a small state, but a force to be reckoned with. I used to think that California and Texas could lead, but California is not going to fight for a smaller government, and Texas is too full of brainwashed sheep to be effective in such a historical venture. It saddens me, but I fear it’s true. They are probably the most prepared when it comes to arms and a pool of veterans to pull from, but there are too many asleep.

If the revolution broke out, would you fight?

I hope so. Freedom is worth fighting for. I signed up once to fight for freedom, only to find out that I went through all the things I went through for oil, gold, and modern colonialism. While I enjoy the benefits of being a veteran, I don’t really feel fulfilled in the obligation. There is still something more for me to do. I am not sure what it is, but I swore an oath to defend people from all threats foreign and domestic.

Something is rotten in the US. Some see. Others do not. Please do not be one of the people who do not see until it’s too late.

Wagen, over and out.
