Benjamin Wayne Merring

It seems that many have forgotten or perhaps it would be better to say that most of us don't even know what liberty is. They think they live in the freest country in the world. Nothing could be further

from the truth. There is no doubt in my mind that if our founding fathers could see us now the would declare their experiment an absolute and complete failure.

Before you write me off as a complete lunatic consider four simple questions:

What is liberty?

How do you get liberty?

How do you exercise your liberty?

How do you lose your liberty?

A common thought is liberty is freedom. Freedom to do what you want to do.

How do you get it? It is yours for the taking?

How do you exercise your liberty? By doing what you want when you want within the confines of the laws of the government..

How do you lose your liberty? By violating the laws established by government.

These are the answers commonly given and accepted by most but again they are utterly wrong.

That is Liberty? Liberty is an unalienable Right of movement.

How do you get liberty. It is an endowment from your Creator to you

How do you exercise your liberty? By living your life in accordance to His word, His will, the laws of nature as our Creator has ordained.

How do you lose your liberty? By violating his word and living contrary to His will. By ignoring the laws of nature and violating laws and sound judgement of man made governments that honour, respect the Creator.

The Declaration of Independance expounded on this topic;

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, . . . . "

If you do not understand these words then you can not understand liberty.

What is the purpose of government? To secure these rights.

What rights, Life LIBERTY the pursuit of happiness.

Where did these rights come from? Endowed by our Creator.

Who is endowed by our Creator? ALL men equally.

How do we know? These truths are self evident. . .

Either our foundation was a lie or our present situation is a lie but no matter how you slice it both can not be true.

I, as an individual, As a sovereign flesh and blood man Clings it the reality of our foundation and reject out of hand Government that insist on regulating my every movement. I have chosen one area of great contention and have Md it my waterloo.

My argument is that I as a sovereign Flesh and blood man I have a liberty right to travel in my automobile and that the government has no right - no authority to regulate my personal private use of the common way. This stance did lead to my arrest and conviction. Now, through means available to me I seek to overturn my conviction and have there laws ruled unconstitutional as i continue in my struggle fighting4liberty.
