Whatever Happened to Justice? by Richard Maybury


Fair Warning, This post contains references to religion but it is not religious. Yes, I know the old adage. Keep away from discussions of abortion, religion and politics at the dinner table. I realize that touching on these subjects in the past have made men go berserk. Some of them are still on the loose. However, my references will be historical in nature so it theoretically should offend no one. I know that is wishful thinking anywhere in life.

I do not offer this as a sales job or intend to pit one philosophy against another. I do not reveal my spiritual belief system and do not suggest one for you. It is simply a historical survey for religion is an intricate part of American history. The founding fathers were deeply devotional men and their spiritual beliefs were incorporated into the Founding documents. If you are a supporter of the Constitution of the United States, the Bill of Rights, then you already know that the principles contained within are in part based on the spiritual belief of the founders. If you don't, well you probably need to read this article.

What I am about to write is the basis of ALL laws, criminal and contract in this land. It was the agreed upon rules of society in Rome before tyranny set in. It was also the agreed upon rules in America before America adopted the Roman Model and began down the road of tyranny. I will also suggest there are no other circumstances that are as fundamental to a metals investor as the laws I am going to discuss. I never thought I would be writing this article or thought that any grown adult would need it. I was wrong. There, I admit it. End of Disclaimer.

This post is a summary of the book "Whatever Happened to Justice? by Richard Maybury. If you never asked the question then maybe it's time. I realize some of you are very familiar with Maybury and a couple of you subscribe to his newsletters. Others of you might only be familiar with him through the occasional mention of him by others on this website. A few of you, find him boring, and disagree with his politics and I vehemently disagree with you.

Richard Maybury is the the soft voice of the alternative media. However, his demure manner should not overshadow his powerful understanding of history and his ability to communicate it in an interesting and straightforward manner. He is the writer of the "Early Warning Report" for the last 24 years and his news letter goes to the CIA. Maybury discovered that a word he had coined "Chaostan" was used in a 2009 speech by General McChrystal. Who knows what other alternative sources they check into? Ron Paul is one of his biggest supporters. When Harry Browne passed on his newsletter, he asked Ron Paul to take over but because of his political career, it was given to Richard Maybury. He is also the author of many books on history and economics suitable for home schooling. His basic investment model is based on what is known as "juris Naturalism" which is another way of saying natural law or common law which is higher than any government's law which is political law.

Higher law also the philosophy of Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and the other American founders. Maybury is one of those cool heads. Not prone to bouts of emotionalism or ranting in his newsletters. It provides a no-nonsense writing of history as it really happened, and follows geopolitical events and the effect on your investments. He cares very little about what gold or silver will do in the next ten minutes. He is the turtle and not the hare. His investment advice doesn't cater to the rabbits that want to become wealthy tomorrow but find after many years, they are still chasing the trophy. His track record is second to none although it will put the aggressive investor to sleep.

Unfortunately, the study of common law is all but lost because most lawyers might have a few classes in the subject and then when they graduate they are forced to practice political law.

Now back to the subject God where the understanding of our system of justice is derived.

Maybury starts off pointing out that all our founders were extremely spiritual men. Jefferson often used the word God but he just as often used the phrase "Laws of Nature" Washington went in for the more biblical God. Paine closer to Jefferson a less "personal" higher authority based on nature. Maybury also took a survey of most of the world religions, which by the way, are most often the source of societies law. At times, it has been hijacked and used to control. But in the case of the founding fathers, their spiritual beliefs resulted in probably the greatest document guaranteeing freedom and liberty, The US Constitution.

This higher law, also known as common or natural law, are a set of immutable principles that exist that apply equally to all mankind as stated by Alexander Hamilton. You can ignore them, you might not want to be aware of the but they are recognized in almost every culture, most forms of religion or spirituality. The founders and others throughout history who have recognized these laws believed every person was bounded by these laws until death do you depart.

Maybury surveyed 2500 years of economic history, the political rise and decline of many civilizations, and various religious and spiritual believes that exist. He discovered that all these systems had two very fundamental principles in common. Maybury distilled these principles until he came down with 16 words which he calls Maybury's two laws that are the basis of all criminal and contract law under common law. They are:

1.) Do All You Have Agreed To Do
2) Do not encroach on other persons
or their property

The first law "Do All You have Agreed To Do" is the bases of all contract law. And Do Not encroach on other persons or their property" is the basis for all criminal law.

Said in a different way, YOUR RIGHTS END WHERE MY NOSE BEGINS. This fundamental principle is violated everyday both by citizens by government and sadly, right here on Turdville. Under common law I have every right to defend my person or property with complete justification. Again, these two laws are stated over and over again in various ways through different religions and philosophies from Judaism and Christianity to Confucianism.

What Maybury does next is to demonstrate that these principles are acting in the world and verifiable by studying the history and political status of every country. What he discovered is that every country who follows these laws had a reasonable amount of prosperity, contentment among the population and extended periods of liberties. Those who did not follow these laws ended up suffering from lack of guaranteed freedoms, poverty, strife and tyranny. He coined the phrase "chaostan" to refer to the countries that regularly violated these principles.

Somewhere in his materials he gives his readers a large map of "chaostan" and rates each member of "chaostan" according to how far down the scale. Maybe another Maybury subscriber has access to this information but if I recall Switzerland was the top or near the top of the list for obeying these laws and Zimbabwe and several others at the bottom. The United States has been sinking down the list over the years.

The next logical step that Maybury took is that if you can predict the level of freedom's and prosperity that will occur based only on these two laws, you then have a model of the world that you can use to guide your investment decisions. And that's exactly what Maybury has been using with great success for 25 years. A governments behavior and the way it exercises power has more effect on your investments than any other factor.

Some very basic legal definitions as defined by Black's Law Dictionary to help you understand exactly what the two laws mean.

Encroach; "To enter by gradual steps or stealth into the possessions or rights of another, to trespass or intrude. To gain or intrude unlawfully upon the lands, property, or authority of another. "

Fraud: An intentional pervasion of truth for the purpose of inducing another in reliance upon it to part with some valuable thing belonging to him or to surrender a legal right. A false representation of a matter of fact, whether by words or by conduct, by false or misleading allegations, or by concealment of that which should have been disclosed, which deceive and is intended to deceive another so that he shall act upon it to his legal injury. Any kind of artifice employed by one person to deceive another.

Agreement: A concord to understanding and itnention between two or more parties with respect to the effect upon their relative rights, or benefits, with the view of contracting an obligation, a mutual obligation.

When you wake up in the morning, turn on your computer, log in to Turdville, you are bounded by multiple societal contracts under common law. When you go into a store your bounded by these contracts. These are known as tacit contracts. You do not sign a contract with a store owner if you walk into his store to buy a cookie. Nevertheless you are bounded by these laws.

You walk into a store and there are some freshly baked cookies on the shelf. You are permitted to examine the cookie but you are not permitted to touch the cookie and make it unsuitable for others consumption. If the cookie is not freshly baked and it is in a wrapper, you are permitted to examine the cookie, read the ingredients on the wrapper, search for a price but you are not permitted to open the cookie, remove the candy or put the cookie in the soda fridge. If you decide you want the cookie, you have a tacit contractual obligation to pay for the cookie before opening or eating it. The money that you use to pay for the cookie with a form of payment allowed by the proprietor. In another words, the moment you opened the door to the candy store, you were bound by a complex set of agreements. Were to break any of these agreements, you would be in violation of your contract and held liable under common law. You have committed an intentional act against a higher law.

The moment you log on to Turd, you are now in a virtual space that is subject to the laws of the land, and the rules and privileges extended to you by the proprietor, in this case Turd. If you do not know what those terms are, it is time to review.

If you are used to rampant flaming and "junking," please don't bring that attitude here. We ask members to be supportive and considerate of one another. Passion about topics is encouraged, but personal attacks, intolerant fanaticism, and proselytizing are not allowed. Turd runs a "benevolent dictatorship," which means he has the final word on all community matters. We also have a number of volunteer moderators whose job it is to keep threads on topic and to take care of trolls and troublemakers.

https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/about


As a contributor and volunteer to the site, I have been extended some extra "privilege" which amounts to nothing more than being the first person to write on a blog once or twice a week. Much of the agreement is a tacit agreement, that I cannot use this space to harm any individual including the owner of this site. The latter is also the agreement I have with society. I must do everything that I agreed upon with Turd to retain this privilege and in return Turd must do everything he agreed upon for me to continue to provide a service. As a poster, I am bound by common law, political law and the terms of my verbal contract and tacit contracts with Turd.

So maybe you are thinking to yourself, that is a whole lot of contracts for waking up, and posting something. Yes but you've probably been engaged with contracts your entire life without thinking about what was occurring. The fun thing about common law is that by adhereing to agreements no matter how insigificant, one gains a modicum of freedom. This is why countries who obey the two laws have liberty and prosperity. The more they adhere to these principles the greater the freedom of the population.

Each law contains a low threshold, a high tension area and the razors edge or the middle point. Once I accept these principles as common to law obeying countries and citizens and I accept them, I enter the middle zone. I am no longer the effect of laws which would seem to bind me. Again, I AM NOT REFERRING TO POLITICAL LAW. Only the laws that fall under the domain of the two laws. Maybury refers to the upper and lower thresholds in the legal sense known as ambient encroachment.

Most communities accept some level of ambient encroachment. You can bump up against me on the subway and knock the coffee out of my hands without me calling it an assault. You might allow me to walk onto your property so I can sell you my daughters girl scout cookies or on Halloween ring your bell to collect candy. The level of allowable encroachment is dependent upon the individual. However, if you intend to encroach, pet another persons animal, go up to a persons rose bush and hold a flower to smell it, and ask permission, you are giving that individual more space and in return he will allow you more space.

Government disregards these allowable thresholds through force. You do not have a choice. Government asserts it's will and the privilege to use power and it is usually done through force of regulation and law that benefits the power holders and not the citizens they intend to serve. Nanny Laws, blue laws, tax laws are a small collection of examples of political law based on the Roman Model.

My fundamental thesis for investing in Gold and Silver is simple. Is my government acting in accordance to the two principles or are they not? Are liberties being granted by natural right or are they being taken away through power and force? Everything else including cycles, charts, supply and demand are secondary factors to the one overriding factor-human behavior. A new cycle could be started and old ones eliminated by the change of behavior. As Einstein said, you can't solve a problem with the same mind that created it. A problem will act according to the laws of cycles until that which created the problem is removed. If government passed a law that said publishing charts was illegal, providing analyst in public forums was illegal, you would only need to use your powers of observation and look at the behaviors of government to understand the long term implications of your investments. It has been shown to work over and over again. Maybury every year issues a challenge to his readers. Find a portfolio issued by a writer that has performed better. To date, nobody has been able to meet the challenge. ONLY TWO LAWS! If we measure economic and geopolitical behavior by government, things are NOT getting better! If you refuse to acknowledge these realities, you are putting your financial security in jeopardy.

On the other hand, things that don't involve the hand of government are getting better. We have increased technology for better communication, medicine can give a man without legs the ability to walk etc... Every year independent inventors flood the market with new inventions from 3D printing to be able to mine asteroids in space. However, even with these there are a delicate balance.

Market Manipulation

Market manipulation is a form of both political and economic power and a violation of the two laws. In 2013, there are still some that say markets are not manipulated as all evidence is nothing more than circumstantial and inconclusive. A trader might reach this assumption because he is able to predict what the markets will do tomorrow at midnight and therefore he concludes that markets can't be manipulated if he is able to predict the outcome more times than not. BAD CONCLUSION based on faulty reasoning and a misunderstanding of cycles.

As I have stated and Turd has stated, markets work according to certain laws and principles whether they are manipulated or not. This was the entire thesis behind the invention of TA. Maybury makes the following observation about market manipulation from a political standpoint.

Everyday, a Saudi Arabian wakes up and looks out his window into the Persian Gulf. While he is having tea and muffins, he see's an American Air craft carrier and a battleship within the sovereign territory of another country. Do you think any Saudi official in their right mind is going to wake up and say, we are not going to sell oil to the United States. Japan tried that and wanted nothing to do with trade with the west. Through gun boat diplomacy, US forced Japan to open trade. Markets are manipulated through political force, EVERY DAY. Whether or not this effects day to day price movement once the force is in place is an entirely different question.

Two Laws Within the Personal Realm

As I said, these laws are nothing new but Maybury's application of them are rather unique. While he discovered they operate on a macro level channeled through government behavior's, plenty of others have discovered that they operate at an individual level.

Simply stated, that an individuals passage through life is made easier or more difficult based upon his observance of these principles. If you choose to be an asshole, life will treat you like an asshole. There are no dirth of studies, which I could present to support my case but will forgo that exercise.

Science has demonstrated that more illness is related to psychosomatic and emotional disturbances than through the average diet. Not to say that diet doesn't contribute to a healthy life style. But if you are an angry, vengeful, fearful, greedy individual, you are cutting your life short and your individual sense of freedom. If you allows to determine how you feel, are you free? If this subject is totally alien to you I suggest you can start with Candice Pert's "Molecues of Emotion" Candice Pert was the former head of the NIH or try "Biology of Belief" by Bruce Lipton. You probably can get some free youtubes on the subject.

The ancient Toltecs understood that these two laws operate in both the personal realm and a government realm. While Maybury stated the laws more succinct, the Four Agreements (written by Don Miguel Ruiz) were said to be principles which indicated if an individual's passage through life was an easy one or one of conflict and contention.

The Four Agreements are: (Taken from the Book. Four Agreements)

1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

Niall Ferguson Defends Newsweek Cover: Correct This, Bloggers

Newsweek Cover-it's about time! Finally, Matt Patterson and Newsweek speak out about Obama. This is timely and tough. As many of you know, Newsweek has a reputation for being extremely liberal. The fact that their editor saw fit to print the following article about Obama and the one that appears in the latest Newsweek, makes this a truly amazing event, and a news story in and of itself. At last, the truth about our President and his agenda are starting to trickle through the “protective wall” built around him by the liberal media.... ______________________________________________________________ I Too Have Become Disillusioned

By Matt Patterson (Newsweek Columnist – Opinion Writer)

Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a
baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world's largest economy, direct the world's most powerful military, execute the world's most consequential job?

Imagine a future historian examining Obama's pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League, despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a "community organizer;" a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, less often did he vote "present"); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.

He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama's "spiritual mentor;" a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama's colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?

Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberal Dom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were 'a bit' extreme, he was given a pass. Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass - held to a lower standard - because of the color of his skin.

Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) "non-threatening," all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon - affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.

Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don't care if these minority students fail; liberals aren't around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin - that's affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn't racism, then nothing is.

And that is what America did to Obama. True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois ; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.

What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama's oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people – conservatives included - ought now to be deeply embarrassed.

The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that's when he has his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth - it's all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years. (An example is his 2012 campaign speeches which are almost word for word his 2008 speeches)

And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. Remember, he wanted the job, campaigned for the task. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerlessness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. (The other day he actually came out and said no one could have done anything to get our economy and country back on track). But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?

In short: our president is a small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity
make sense? It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval Office.

@ achmachat re: Obelisks

Yes, obelisks are located in each of the three independent states more commonly referred to as DC, City of London and the Vatican.

What I also find interesting about the location of these obelisks is that when viewed from above they are positioned so that they appear to be centered precisely in the middle of a giant key hole.

What do these keyholes symbolically represent, and what do they "unlock"? What "key" do they await?

In the course of trying to find the answer to THAT question I often come across the symbol of the Key of Solomon. However, it is one thing to find reference to a Key of Solomon on the Internet, and another to find a tangible explanation for what that symbol (if it's the one that is connected) really means.

(When it comes to the Internet there is no shortage of bad information and misdirection out there).

One thing is certain, however: it is not coincidental that DC, City of London and the Vatican are powerfully interconnected in some manner. And from looking at the geometry and architecture involved it is also clear that great intelligence and powerful forces have been at work over an extended period of time (many centuries) to make these visible representations manifest.

The bigger question is: Why? What are we not being told?

Gold & Pending Fed Surprise

Given that TFMR is supposed to be dedicated to PMs discussions, perhaps I should also make an effort to discuss PMs. (Since logging in this morning I can honestly say that I haven't even bothered to see what PM prices are or aren't doing. Oh well).

Based on some comments last night on another thread I did venture to KWN to find this interesting tidbit.

https://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2013/9/17_M...

Apparently there is supposed to be a surprise announcement coming from the Fed today and this, coupled with serious shortages of physical gold is going to result in gold prices rocketing higher.

Uh huh.

If this is to be believed today is going to be another very interesting day in the PM markets.

Enjoy your day everyone!

Romania ordering more study of Canadian-controlled gold mine


Wednesday, Sep. 18 2013, 10:06 AM EDT

Gabriel Resources Ltd. says there will be ongoing study of its Rosia Montana gold mine by a Romania parliamentary committee despite government threats to shut down debate on whether to grant the necessary permits. The Toronto-based company says the Official Gazette of Romania is reporting that a special joint committee has been set up to issue an opinion on the draft law, legislation that Gabriel needs to go ahead with the mine.

Gabriel’s stock plunged last week amid reports that the government would enact an emergency procedure to halt debate of draft legislation, which could have rejected the law before it was even debated by the two chambers of parliament. The project, which would be one of Europe’s biggest gold mines, has faced local opposition over its planned use of cyanide. But miners have also called for approval of the mine, which would create jobs and spur the local economy.

The company said Wednesday that the parliamentary committee will examine the legislation, prepare a report for discussion in each chamber of parliament, and facilitate a decision on the adoption of the draft law. The committee can carry out on-site visits and may invite representatives of interested parties, non-governmental organizations and experts to participate in its work. It will present its findings by Oct. 20 to initiate debate. Gabriel says it expects a decision from parliament on the draft law around Nov. 1.

Thousands of people demonstrated in Romania’s capital of Bucharest earlier this month, urging lawmakers not to pass legislation that would approve the mine as a “special national interest.’ On the other side of the debate, thousands of miners used their annual rally on miner’s day to urge Parliament to allow the mine to open, saying it would create jobs and investment, local authorities said. Gabriel Resources has been waiting for 14 years for permits for the mine and has promised to develop the mine in a sustainable way.

@ Mantis

Re: “The point is (as I understand it) once you are duped into playing by their rules (statute law) you lose. But if you are able to stick to common law they haven't a leg to stand on.” O.K. then Mantis, so what part of what G.L. posted (highlighted below) do you not grasp? “Maybury's two laws that are the basis of all criminal and contract law under common law. They are:

1.) Do All You Have Agreed To Do 2) Do not encroach on other persons or their property The first law "Do All You have Agreed To Do" is the (basis) of all contract law.” Next, using the “extract” you provided, “ Dealing with Debt”, the unnamed author with absolutely zero credentials /credibility presents an asinine theory that simply does not hold up in any Court of Equity. How is it that you assume that it is somehow remotely possible that the fictional “James” is not the One defaulting, or otherwise derelict under Contract / Common Law? (See 1 Above) Further down, under “What is money?” do take note that the unnamed author also incorrectly states that homeowner / attorney Jerome Daly “kept his home.” when in fact, HE DID NOT! Since that case, and subsequent results are well over Four Decades Old, what does that say about the unnamed author’s due diligence, credibility, and/or intelligence for that matter? The only saving grace on that whole page is actually what “Michael Rivero” put forth, with the exception whereby he omitted that it was Rothschild agents who subsequently began deliberately fomenting the “Secession” B.S. in the South, after their assassin failed to kill Andrew Jackson, who btw was no dummy as he knew who America’s true enemies were (Rothschilds) and that is why Jackson stated: “The Union, it must be preserved” ( because divided, America would fall under the boot of the Int’l Banksters!)

@ J.G. / District of Columbia

Re: “There is one thing I do agree with you on: namely that the Act of 1871 did (on the surface) create a legal entity called the District of Columbia, more commonly known as Washington D.C.”

“One Thing”? Was it too hard for you to simply google “U.S. Constitution” and see for your own eyes the TRUTH about the POTUS’ Oath of Office under Article II, Section 1 Clause 7, or is it that you simply cannot count beyond the number 1?

@ Spartacus re: Oath of Office

Tell me something: does the POTUS swear the Oath of Office to the United States or to The United States?

Just because two things sound the same, or are spelled "almost" the same, does not make them the same in legal terms. The simple act of capitalizing a single letter can completely alter the meaning of an entire legal document.

The creation of a special land called the District of Columbia in 1871 happened for a reason. Everything happens for a reason.

Once again I will post this link, because it summarizes much of this discussion.

https://www.usavsus.info/

I find it more than ironic that on a website the regularly discusses lies and manipulations from government and media that we continue to get a simultaneous normalcy bias that revolves around the illusion that there actually is a rule of law in effect in this land.

On second thought, perhaps it is this assumption that explains why so many are getting so frustrated around here. After all, if one actually believes that the government is acting as a Republic (and not as a corporation) then one would rightly expect that members of government would act in accordance with the wishes of the founding fathers.

And if they don't act in accordance with those wishes then one would also expect that the safeguard mechanisms would kick into action to rectify the problem. Then when neither happens we get angry and frustrated while lamenting about politicians and civil servants and how the rules of law (as we expected them to be) are not being followed.

But consider this: What if the rule of law IS being followed, but there are two sets of rules; one set for the United States and another for The United States?

BTW Spartacus - Thank you

By continuing to attack my comments plus further insinuating that I cannot count past the number 1 gives me cause to respond to your attacks.

While I do not profess to be an expert on many topics I do have many questions about why certain things are happening in the world. And that is why I ask questions and make posts about the things I have discovered.

My post (above) will likely do little to change YOUR opinion. However, I went through the effort to post it because there are many readers on this site who quietly read the many posts here, often without commenting.

Over time some of these folks will do their own due diligence, by thinking and asking the same questions themselves. In this regard the questions I ask are intended to be helpful for them.

@John Galt re: spartacus rex' comments . . .

I have noticed that SR likes to come in after someone makes a statement, he/she researches that statement and if found to be off-base or incomplete or out of timing, attacking the initial commenter as very, very stupid.

I appreciate your posts, as they are well thought out, and make much sense. I sometimes appreciate SR' comments, except they are always in response to someone else, usually with the "stupid" message attached. He ought to come up with an original line of thinking and initiate rather than laying in the weeds, doing his research after the fact, and attacking.

I guess one good thing about his attacks, they tend to make me do a bit of research before posting something, so he can't take enjoyment from calling me stupid and correcting whatever was said.

Reminds me of a crotchety old school teacher who forgot, or never knew much, and who revels in finding someone else's error.

@ ancientmoney

Thanks for posting that observation.

It's interesting that GL refers to The Four Agreements in this post.

I kept reminding myself of Agreement #2 while reading SR's comments.
