Rights Versus Responsibilities

There is a difference between rights and responsibilities. It may be your right to grow hemp, but given the fact that doing so may lead to the feds swooping in to imprison you, seize your property, and terrorize your family makes it irresponsible.

Similarly, although it is the right of every state, county, city, neighborhood, household, and individual to secede from the federal government, that would not a responsible use of their rights, for the feds have declared secession to be treason, terrorism, and a mental disorder.

Remember, submission is not consent. Take heart. Live to fight another day.

"Yesterday we obeyed kings and bent our necks before emperors, but today we kneel only to truth." - Kahlil Gibran
