Seems pretty clear that “US Law” is about creation of impediments against individuals and obstacles to business (ref David’s post) …
Yet the general government acts in violation of the US Law:
“WASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- The Treasury Department auctioned $56 billion in new debt Tuesday and Wednesday, enough to take the U.S. over its federal debt ceiling when the three- and 10-year notes settle on Monday.” … Source
So when do we say “enough” ? We are surrounded and intimidated, pressed for surrender by Washington DC, much as the US Army was surrounded and threatened in the town of Bastogne during WWII.
… McAuliffe realized that some sort of reply was in order. He pondered for a few minutes and then told the staff, “Well I don’t know what to tell them.” He then asked the staff what they thought, and I spoke up, saying, “That first remark of yours would be hard to beat.” McAuliffe said, “What do you mean?” I answered, “Sir, you said ‘Nuts’.” All members of the staff enthusiastically agreed, and McAuliffe decided to send that one word, “Nuts!” back to the Germans. McAuliffe then wrote down: “To the German Commander, “Nuts!”

I keep looking for examples of courage and resistance while I search my soul for reasons to respect my government.
While I haven’t found any reasons to respect government in recent years, I have found one steadfast example of courage and resistance.
Thank you, David DeGerolamo … I hope more of us RESIST
