Tyranny Defined by John Locke - Tyranny Enacted by US Legislature

John Locke - 201:

"It is a mistake to think this fault is proper only to monarchies. Other forms of government are liable to it as well as that; for WHEREVER the power that is put in any hands for the government of the people and the preservation of their properties is applied to "other ends", and made use of to IMPOVERISH, HARASS, or SUBDUE them to the ARBITRARY and IRREGULAR commands of those that have it, THERE it presently becomes TYRANNY, whether those that thus use it are one or many. Thus we read of the thirty tyrants at Athens, as well as one at Syracuse; and the intolerable dominion of the Decemviri at Rome was nothing better."

Just think of how that applies

to all police action. I just received a citation for expired inspection and they want $130 for this, and my liberty was impaired on the side of the highway, all because his car was equipped with special flashy lights that if I did not pull over and pause my liberty he very well may have purposely damaged my vehicle or worse murdered me, like they did to that couple in Cleveland.

Is this not impoverishment, is this not harassment, is this not an act to subdue the public?

For what? For some arbitrary rules they have created to overrule on your property, not theirs.

Let me ask, If you have a house but the house must be decorated as I see fit, is the house still yours or does it belong to me now?

The very meaning of property is the right to use, possess, and dispose of an item or object. When someone else restricts your right to use, possess, or dispose of an item or object you have been deprived of property.
