In case any reader still clings to the platitude that the American political system is based on the proposition that ours is “a society of laws, and not of men,” I urge you to pay close attention to the events of recent years. Political behavior does not exist in abstractions, such as the “state,” or the “government,” or a “constitution,” but is activity engaged in by such men and women who find the machinery of state power a useful device for accomplishing ends that they value. Those who desire to control others through access to the tools of violence that define the state, have rationales to convince their intended victims of the “rightness” of their rule.
This morning I’ll be heading for my designated polling place. Only one person gets my vote, while all the rest will get “None of the Above”. There is NOBODY in America who can (and WILL) fix the mess which our Rulers have burdened we Humans with, which makes “voting” a useless waste of time.
There will be no vote available for Dissolution, but I’ll work that onto my ballot anyway. For human beings to be truly Free, Dissolution must apply to every GOVERNment at every level!
The rest of this page is devoted to some good links of the day.

Contrary to what many Americans seem to think, the document we now call “the Constitution” and the Declaration of independence are not pretty much the same thing or “connected in spirit,” or “two sides of the same coin.” The two documents were written by two different groups of people at two different times to accomplish two totally different goals.

“But in my 2-part series on the economic history of American medicine, I examined how healthcare has been “managed” from its inception in the late 1910s, when the Flexnerian reforms and the ensuing medical licensing laws began to influence (and limit) the type of medical care Americans could choose to receive.”
