"What we have is a Managed Democracy. And a Managed Democracy is a truly wonderful thing -- if you happen to be one of the managers. The greatest asset to a Managed Democracy is a free press, provided that 'free' is defined as 'responsible,' and the Managers get to decide what is "irresponsible." -- Robert A. Heinlein

"A government is nothing more than the Mafia with flags." -- Brad Spangler

# Brad Spangler - It Is a Good Time to Be an Anarchist - with the U.S.A. T.R.A.I.T.O.R. Act, the United States government has given up all pretense of being restricted by the Constitution. Hence, they have given up any tenuous claim the had left of legitimacy. All that's left is to fight the criminals at your door until the dinosaur breathes its last, and teach as many people as possibile that government is always such, so that when this one dies, we can replace it with nothing. [root]

The Republic is dead. It was a noble experiment that ultimately failed in its principal aim - to demonstrate that a written constitution can restrain governmental authority to a somewhat non-tyrannical level.

The FedGov has cast aside restrictions on its authority - restrictions written into the only document that gave it a claim, however tenuous, to legitimacy. To the FedGov, the Constitution that creates, structures and limits it is no longer valid.

So be it. There is, then, no legitimate government. We already live in a state of anarchy. We face only a crime problem.
