By what legitimate authority?

The question not being asked by most of us is: By what legitimate authority? How does anyone legitimately gain authority to control the lives and choices of other people against their will?

Did you ever ask a politician, a gun grabber, a public school teacher, a bureaucrat… “By what legitimate authority do you demand, order, enforce, do these things?”

I have. Most, of course, cite the “constitution” and/or “the rule of law.” I then ask them how those things can confer LEGITIMATE authority. Where does legitimate authority over people’s lives and property originate?

So far, NONE of them can answer that, and most become extremely angry when questioned at all. Yet I would think that is the most important question we can ask.

And it’s the most important question we can ask ourselves. Do we own our lives, or have we given our sovereign and natural authority over ourselves to the rulers and politicians?

It is PRESUMED authority in which they operate.

The foreign corporation known as the UNITED STATES and it's sub-corporations such as the STATE OF *** have presumed you and I into an employment position within their corporation.

The only problem with that presumption is:

They are not paying us for our time; we are not being compensated for our time, and we get no benefits such as insurance, company vehicle, sick leave, Christmas bonuses, etc.

Fix reason firmly in her

Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear.
