Declaration of Rights

Dear Fellow Citizen,

You do not have the right to my efforts, property, or life.

You do not have the right to lay a claim against my labor to fund your desires or your lethargy.

You do not have the right to lay a claim against my property to fund your desires or your avarice.

You do not have the right to lay a claim against my life for the benefit of yours, which you have squandered in idleness and sloth.

You have supported those whose purpose is to destroy our great nation and strip her wealth for their own benefit, while leaving her citizens to die, uncared-for, as slaves to the government. You have supported the open declaration of war upon the productive in our society, for the benefit of the idle. You have associated yourself with smiling killers who are using you as foils in the battle to remake our government into a spoils system that benefits only those in power and their friends.

You are not their friend.

You have the right to live your own life, through your own efforts, solely for your own benefit and for the benefit of anybody whom you wish to support voluntarily, as do I.

I have the right to defend myself against your predations, and I will do so.

If you support the forced subjugation of your fellow citizens under oppressive taxation and stifling bureaucracy, then I will oppose you.

If you attempt to enforce your will at the point of a gun, then I will oppose you at the point of a gun.

You have drawn the battle lines too closely for my comfort.

Don't Tread On Me.
