Taxation Without Representation Like 231 Years Ago

First it was Kennedy and McCain in the Senate. Now it’s Gutierrez and Flake in the House of Representatives. This fearless foursome has found it in their “infinite wisdom” to push Amnesty legislation for 20 million illegal aliens. This despite the overwhelming majority of Americans polled are against amnesty in any way, shape or form. This includes the euphemism known as “a path to legalization”. Pushing this amnesty legislation, in light of the clear opposition to it, is a modern day example of “taxation without representation“.

Not only that, but this quartet of traitors put this proposed legislation together clandestinely, illustrating that these players knew what they were doing is unpopular and harmful to the United States. Article here.

Gutierrez and Flake have spent months drafting their bill behind closed doors with input from White House officials, members of both parties and senators. They initially were working with Sens. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., and John McCain, R-Ariz., but the senators bailed out after they couldn’t agree on some key issues.

Two hundred and thirty one years ago, the US Colonies took the King of England to task for committing very similar subversive acts. Consider these indictments found in the Declaration of Independence.

  • He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
  • For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
  • He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
  • He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
  • He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
  • He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
  • He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
  • In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

There are striking parallels between King George III and President George II.

  • President George II refuses to enforce our immigration laws, thus placing himself above the “rule of law”.
  • Further, he refuses to protect the sovereignty of the United States. Again putting him above the law.
  • Like King George III, President George II taxes his subjects without heeding their political will. He pushes for amnesty for millions of illegal aliens despite the overwhelming opposition to such policy. He refuses to enforce immigration law and use all resources available, to facilitate that end, despite the will of his people.
  • His illegal immigration agenda has obscured justice for Border Agents Ramos, Compean and Sheriffs Deputy, Hernandez.
  • He fires Justices that don’t conform to his agenda.
  • He has allowed an unarmed “Standing Army” of 20 million illegal aliens to occupy the United States without the consent of the people.
  • He acts in unison with foreign governments to subvert the American people. He pushes policy that benefits these foreign governments and their people to the detriment of the American people.
  • President George II has plundered the American people and communities across the United States by failing to enforce immigration laws.
  • He does all of these things with a willing and aiding Congress and Senate.

Despite majority support to the contrary, President George II pursues this harmful personal agenda. Despite existing laws to contrary, he allows these grievances to exist and flourish. Despite our laws and will, activist judges pervert our laws to push this anti American agenda. He allows this as well.

It’s clear that the American people have few alternatives afforded to them in stopping illegal immigration. The normal avenues set in place by the forefathers of this nation, apparently are no longer valid or effective. What does that leave us with?

Two hundred and thirty one years ago, our forefathers had come to a similar conclusion.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume, among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

This is how they dealt with it.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Our political leaders are putting us in very precarious circumstances. They need to look at what they are doing and how they are doing it. Failing to do so could cause history to repeat itself.

Due to our political climate and state of leadership, the Second Amendment is more important now than perhaps ever before.

It is amazing the actions of the President Obama mirror the actions of President George II and all former presidents. I do hope the outrage continues against Obama or I will feel hypocrisy has taken up residence.

Children of illegal aliens (invaders) AKA “anchor babies ” are not citizens of the USA
yet we never enforce the Constitution or immigration laws. Obama is guilt of this lack of action, speak up people.

14th Amendment

“all persons, born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.”

The phrase “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” was intended to exclude from automatic citizenship American-born persons whose allegiance to the United States was incomplete. For example, Native Americans were excluded from American citizenship because of their tribal jurisdiction. Also not subject to American jurisdiction were foreign visitors, ambassadors, consuls, and their babies born here. In the case of illegal aliens, their native country has a claim of allegiance on the child.
