Land of the Free!
We, as citizens of this country,
claim America to be the Land of the Free. We say the Pledge
of Allegiance using the words, "With Liberty and Justice for all." I fear
somehow we, as a country, and as a people, have lost all perspective of
what those words mean as used by the Founding Fathers. Have we become
a mindless brain-washed public that just uses good sounding words
that have no meaning? It's time to wake up.
Right now, America has more percentage of its population imprisoned behind
bars by far that any foreign dictator, or country under a tyrant. This
includes Russia, China, and add any other nation you want to this list
and total them all together. There are no close seconds in any regime
in all the world. The American prison growth industry now follows
closely behind General Motors as our major industry which
keeps law enforcement, courts, judges, prosecutors, attorneys,
bailiffs, court reporters, clerks, busing, child protection agencies, and
federal and state bureaucrats, etc., connected therewith, fully employed to
the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars annually. Our country has come
to financially depend upon this prison growth industry, and expanding it.
If you will receive it, I am hearing from people who have moved to
this country from foreign dictator regimes that have said that things were not
as despotic in their countries. I know there will be those who will say,
"If you don't like America, then leave it." This might be justifiable to say to
those coming to America in search of freedom, but nonetheless, this does
raise questions as to what we Americans mean when we use the word "freedom."
Could it be we are just being deceived?
Having read the below account of Roger Fredinburg, I trust you will take
inventory of what you personally mean when you use the word "freedom." I, for
one, as an American citizen, hardly ever having stepped off these shores
beyond serving in the military, am unwilling to accept the below
descript as the "Land of the Free," offering "Liberty and Justice
This is why I, as the author/founder of JAIL4Judges, a true Red-Blooded
American, am working diligently everyday to return our country around to
that intended by our Founding Fathers, i.e., a true Land of the Free,
offering Liberty and Justice for all. Am I crazy, or is there
something rotten in Denmark, or is it I am just unAmerican? You be the
judge. If you feel there is something fundamentally wrong in our country, then I
ask you to join me and J.A.I.L. in our pursuit of honesty and justice for
all. ~Ron Branson
LIBERATE AMERICA NEXT
By Roger Fredinburg
April 7, 2003
Last Thursday and incident in my offices
caused me to make some mental comparisons. Bernice, wife of Monte one of our
sales staff came rushing into the office in a panic. It was clear that she was
terrified, pale face, clammy skin, shaking and clearly frustrated. She looked as
though she had been chased by Saddam's muggers and narrowly escaped. Bernice is
in her early 60's, a gentle and kindly woman, 5'9" tall, 115 pounds, she's
committed to the Lord and though her life has met with difficult challenges over
the past several years, she never shows it. An all American girl, born on a
ranch in Montana, well traveled, a working woman who helped her husband run a
popular downtown upscale shoe store for many years, raised two children who are
successful and looks forward to being a grandma.
Yet here she was,
wringing with fear, shaking and distraught. I asked her "What's wrong"? "You
look like you just saw a ghost" I said. She
responded."The taxes! I have to
get these forms out and I can't be late and I need to get Monte to sign them so
I can mail them tonight." Trembling, out of breath clearly frightened. (she had
mistakenly thought April first was the deadline).
At that moment all of
the things that irritate me as an American and a
businessman began racing
through my mind. The horrendous tax burden I carry, the way taxes are collected,
the fear we all share every April 15.
I began thinking about Ruby Ridge,
Waco, Donald Scott, long retired stories of government tyranny. I got mad,
Zoning, planning and building laws and restrictions, parental
being undermined by the state, anonymous phone calls bringing out
the state child snatchers, people being jailed for not paying taxes, ... loss of
property rights, the regulations and hurdles put in front of start up
businesses, the idiotic bureaucrats wielding their authority like a slave
masters whip. I got mad, really mad.
Our hired help has run
America has more laws and restrictions on the books than any
country on earth. More people are incarcerated in America then Red China and
Russia combined. More stupidity flows from our supposed free and democratic
system than ever envisioned by any civilization in world history.
the toilet in your bathroom is regulated now and they can put
property owners in jail or fine them substantially if they
put a real toilet
in. This is freedom they tell me.
Seat belts, kiddy car seats, motorcycle
helmets, laws for child rearing and discipline, firearms regulations, sign
codes, licenses, permits and
government permission is required for virtually
everything we do.
Permission needed to peaceably assemble?, Permission to
speak and time restrictions on public testimony at open meetings? Warrant-less
searches, civil forfeitures, hocus pocus - phony baloney.
It's illegal to
be out in public without your "papers". Identification laws
right to anonymity. If a policeman asks who you are he/she can throw you in jail
for simply refusing to cough up your papers and cooperate whether you are
breaking the law or just casually resting on your front porch. You will submit
to the hired help or face the consequences. As for your drivers license or I.D.
card ? Don't leave home without it!
People are routinely denied due
process, jury trials, and competent legal council. Tossed in jail on trumped up
charges and held on a lie. In court the police are always right even if their
testimony is in direct conflict with their written reports. They aren't allowed
in court as evidence.... and there isn't anything you can do about it, nothing.
The hired help, those thankless bureaucrats, have the power and use it with
a vengeance everyday against unwitting Americans for no other reason than the
hired help wanting to send their message of fear to the rest of the
How often have you been casually driving along and spotted a
police car in your mirror, grabbed for you seat belt, worried if you had your
license, registration, proof of insurance, "your Papers" in order. Is that
really freedom? I wonder how many car wrecks causing death and injury result
from that tyranny? Will the bureaucrats fund that study?
In many places
smoking is now virtually a crime, don't drink in public
because police are
frequenting bars looking for intoxicated folks, dragging them outside and field
In Bellville, Illinois the police are wandering around with code
enforcement officers walking into private homes unannounced and without warrants
to check "occupancy levels"? Those who ask questions or interfere are being
dragged off to jail or fined for interfering with a code enforcement officer in
the midst of his/her duties? ....
We have nearly a one half trillion
dollar trade deficit? We are told
deficits are good? Try that one on your
bank the next time you bounce a check! Let's get real here folks!
are demanding fingerprints to cash their own checks? Even our local animal
hospital demands your thumbprint now if you write a check.
I asked myself
as Bernice left the office the other day just how many
people die from heart
attacks, strokes, panic attacks and suicide every
year due to government
intervention. I don't suppose the bureaucrats have funded that research project
I just want my freedom back. I don't want to overthrow the
government, start a civil war, protest in the streets or terrorize my fellow
Americans. I just want my freedom back! ....
...I would ask you to consider what freedom is, and what it isn't.
your congressman/woman and President Bush hear our call to liberate
America too, liberate America next. Otherwise what's the point?
