We are told since birth in this country that we have a government of the people, by the people, and for the people! We are told that America is special because our government clings to its existence by a mere thread;
a thread forged out of the consent of the people living here.
We are taught that the government has no just powers except that which we, as individuals, consent to it having over us, and that any time we decide to end that consent, any time we decide the government has broken from its cage and has become the master instead of the servant groveling for our permission to exist, we are supposed to be able to change it; to stuff it back in its cage. And if that doesn't work we are to put it down like a rabid dog.
I say we are long past the realm of a government barely clinging to its existence, begging for our consent. The opportunity was past long ago to stuff it back in its cage, if that was ever even an option to begin with. But today the vast majority of the people living here would disagree with me. They tell me to get involved, to vote, to lobby, to contribute, to even join with the beast in an office with the power to enact change, to become a member of the political mafia of high enough rank to be able to weaken it from the inside.
I am here to put that theory to the test. If it is still possible to rein this thing in -- to advance toward freedom without the terrible and bloody revolutions of our forefathers. If the cancer that is government has not yet grown so pervasive that an activist dedicated to the non-aggression principle can successfully redeem the mafia from the inside out… Then let it be now! And, if you all are willing, let it be me! I submit myself to you as a candidate for “Not Governor” of Texas.
Allow me to represent you so I can put words to your withdrawal of consent to this mob rule, to your constant extortion and harassment and control. Allow me to be, for the first time in history, a 100% Non-Aggression Principle Compliant candidate for this office. Allow me to shout loudly and clearly that whatever right these politicians believe they have to govern has been revoked, that you demand, not request, demand to be left alone in every way imaginable.
No more theft, no more extortion, no more forced association or disassociation, no more control, no more interference in your business or in your trade, and no more meddling in your consensual relationships or your selection of vegetation! You own yourself and you are done ceding authority over your property to people in a system that does everything but actually protect that property.
They have failed at protection, failed at education, failed at justice, and they have failed at leadership! Let me tell them that you are done with them. Their time is over. Let me tell them that we are ready to take back custody of our lives, of our agency, of our free wills! Let me tell them that you are ready to Lead Yourself!
