    Secession is the only answer I see. Read my post below. I’m sure you know about Lysander :).

    “6. That no government, so called, can reasonably be trusted for a moment, or reasonably be supposed to have honest purposes in view, any longer than it depends wholly upon voluntary support.

    These facts are all so vital and so self-evident, that it cannot reasonably be supposed that any one will voluntarily pay money to a “government,” for the purpose of securing its protection, unless he first make an explicit and purely voluntary contract with it for that purpose.

    It is perfectly evident, therefore, that neither such voting, nor such payment of taxes, as actually takes place, proves anybody’s consent, or obligation, to support the Constitution. Consequently we have no evidence at all that the Constitution is binding upon anybody, or that anybody is under any contract or obligation whatever to support it. And nobody is under any obligation to support it. ” ~ Lysander Spooner

    For this reason, whoever desires liberty, should understand these vital facts, viz.: 1. That every man who puts money into the hands of a “government” (so called), puts into its hands a sword which will be used against him, to extort more money from him, and also to keep him in subjection to its arbitrary will. 2. That those who will take his money, without his consent, in the first place, will use it for his further robbery and enslavement, if he presumes to resist their demands in the future. 3. That it is a perfect absurdity to suppose that any body of men would ever take a man’s money without his consent, for any such object as they profess to take it for, viz., that of protecting him; for why should they wish to protect him, if he does not wish them to do so? To suppose that they would do so, is just as absurd as it would be to suppose that they would take his money without his consent, for the purpose of buying food or clothing for him, when he did not want it. 4. If a man wants “protection,” he is competent to make his own bargains for it; and nobody has any occasion to rob him, in order to “protect” him against his will. 5. That the only security men can have for their political liberty, consists in their keeping their money in their own pockets, until they have assurances, perfectly satisfactory to themselves, that it will be used as they wish it to be used, for their benefit, and not for their injury.

    Lol? Adding amendments to a constitution that they do not follow isn’t going to fix the issue.

    “But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.”

    All political power, so called, rests practically upon this matter of money. Any number of scoundrels, having money enough to start with, can establish themselves as a “government”; because, with money, they can hire soldiers, and with soldiers extort more money; and also compel general obedience to their will. It is with government, as Caesar said it was in war, that money and soldiers mutually supported each other; that with money he could hire soldiers, and with soldiers extort money. So these villains, who call themselves governments, well understand that their power rests primarily upon money. With money they can hire soldiers, and with soldiers extort money. And, when their authority is denied, the first use they always make of money, is to hire soldiers to kill or subdue all who refuse them more money.”

    Which message? I read all of them.

    “I always want the best for Glenn especially considering he opened my eyes so much during my high school years.”

    Glenn led me to Ron Paul. Ron Paul opened me to freedom thus leading me to pick up various books. Lysander Spooner led me to Rothbard. Rothbard led me to Jeffery Tucker who is my current favorite Anarchist speaker/writer.

    Just to add – I think the idea of an imminent rapture has made American Christians complacent. Prayer is good and all, right? Right. But sometimes action is needed. If the founders did nothing but pray – I’d be drinking tea.

    Which I do love Cinnamon Tea :).

    ” IF We ever get a decent government”

    You will never have a decent government.

    It’s a “private” school bus. Private businesses are allowed to discriminate whomever just as you are allowed to boycott said business.

    Voting is an asinine thing to do. Locally? Maybe it matters. God warned the Jews what would happen when they cried out for a king. The same applies for America.

    I don’t see a need for a president, Do you?
