John Locke on Breach of Trust; Internal Dissolution of Government; Reasonable Distrust; Lawful Remedy and Defense, True Nature of Rebels:

Thomas Jefferson got most of his material for his Declaration of Independence from John Locke and Jefferson said that all the principles of human liberty in early America came from Algernon Sidney (Discourses of Government 1683) and John Locke (First and Second Treatise of Government 1689) Locke wrote the last chapter of his Second Treatise on the Dissolution of Government by those who hold its seats. And we can see the power and logic of what he said today. We also know all our forefathers and founders knew the work of John Locke and quoted him often. John Locke wrote a good part of the Constitution of Carolina and his work shows up in all the State Constitutions as well as the Federal.

The mere presence of police, soldiers and judges, legislators and governors does not mean the government exists in law. For it will be shown beyond a doubt that lawful authority to act for the people can be totally lost by the actions of those who hold office in it. It can also be shown that the people need not do anything to be out from under such a dissolved government and they are then free to develop a new form of government they think will best protect their property consisting of life, liberty and possessions:

"Sec. 212. Besides this over-turning from without, governments are dissolved from within,

First, When the legislative is altered. Civil society being a state of peace, amongst those who are of it, from whom the state of war is excluded by the umpirage, which they have provided in their legislative, for the ending all differences that may arise amongst any of them, it is in their legislative, that the members of a commonwealth are united, and combined together into one coherent living body. This is the soul that gives form, life, and unity, to the common-wealth: from hence the several members have their mutual influence, sympathy, and connexion: and therefore, when the legislative is broken, or dissolved, dissolution and death follows: for the essence and union of the society consisting in having one will, the legislative, when once established by the majority, has the declaring, and as it were keeping of that will. The constitution of the legislative is the first and fundamental act of society, whereby provision is made for the continuation of their union, under the direction of persons, and bonds of laws, made by persons authorized thereunto, by the consent and appointment of the people, without which no one man, or number of men, amongst them, can have authority of making laws that shall be binding to the rest. When any one, or more, shall take upon them to make laws, whom the people have not appointed so to do, they make laws without authority, which the people are not therefore bound to obey; by which means they come again to be out of subjection, and may constitute to themselves a new legislative, as they think best, being in full liberty to resist the force of those, who without authority would impose any thing upon them. Every one is at the disposure of his own will, when those who had, by the delegation of the society, the declaring of the public will, are excluded from it, and others usurp the place, who have no such authority or delegation."[1] (Bolding added)

Locke presents a number of ways this dissolution can occur and one fits our current situation with the so-called "federal government." It is the breach of trust and failure to keep the will of the people by altering their constitution by law without the required permission of the people through amendments:

"Sec. 221. There is therefore, secondly, another way whereby governments are dissolved, and that is, when the legislative, or the prince, either of them, act contrary to their trust. First, The legislative acts against the trust reposed in them, when they endeavour to invade the property of the subject, and to make themselves, or any part of the community, masters, or arbitrary disposers of the lives, liberties, or fortunes of the people.

Sec. 222. The reason why men enter into society, is the preservation of their property; and the end why they chuse and authorize a legislative, is, that there may be laws made, and rules set, as guards and fences to the properties of all the members of the society, to limit the power, and moderate the dominion, of every part and member of the society: for since it can never be supposed to be the will of the society, that the legislative should have a power to destroy that which every one designs to secure, by entering into society, and for which the people submitted themselves to legislators of their own making; whenever the legislators endeavour to take away, and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any farther obedience, and are left to the common refuge, which God hath provided for all men, against force and violence. Whensoever therefore the legislative shall transgress this fundamental rule of society; and either by ambition, fear, folly or corruption, endeavour to grasp themselves, or put into the hands of any other, an absolute power over the lives, liberties, and estates of the people; by this breach of trust they forfeit the power the people had put into their hands for quite contrary ends, and it devolves to the people, who. have a right to resume their original liberty, and, by the establishment of a new legislative, (such as they shall think fit) provide for their own safety and security, which is the end for which they are in society. What I have said here, concerning the legislative in general, holds true also concerning the supreme executor, who having a double trust put in him, both to have a part in the legislative, and the supreme execution of the law, acts against both, when he goes about to set up his own arbitrary will as the law of the society."[2]

Just how has the so-called "federal government" breached the trust of the people? they have done so by altering the laws without permission of the people by amendments. They have altered the very form of the union that was constituted by these alterations made by law without our permission creating a government that none agreed to and has no authority to act for the people or the states. A brief list of these alterations made by law without amendments are submitted here:

1.      The institution and use of paper currency throughout the states in violation of Article 1 Section 10;

2.      The maintenance and funding of a federal standing army for more than two years after the completion of a congressionally declared war in violation of Article 1 Section 8 Clause 12;

3.      The membership of the “United States of America” in the “United Nations,” consisting of a law making body or legislature (General Assembly), a judiciary to rule on the Justice of a matter (International Court of Justice), an executive branch to execute the policy of the UN (Secretariat), and a Council on economic issues, social issues and trusteeship in violation of the entire “United States Constitution” as “We the People” did not delegate any authority to be placed anywhere except where the “United States Constitution” says it is to be placed. There is simply no provision for the “United States” to join another larger union with the powers of government consisting of a legislature, judiciary and executive branch in violation of the Declaration of Independence and the Tenth Amendment and the Principles of Property;[3]

4.      The prosecution of military combat in Iraq and Afghanistan by “President Bush” and “President Obama” without a "declaration of war" by Congress in violation of Article 1 Section 8 Clause 11.

4.1.   A "Congressional Resolution" giving the power to the "President" to MAKE WAR is not a power of Congress to exercise or to delegate to the President or anyone else. An amendment cannot grant this authority either as that power is not in the people either. Making war is a tyrannical power that no one holds.

4.2.   Congress cannot Abrogate its congressional power to DECLARE A STATE OF WAR to the President and the President cannot Usurp that power without the dissolution of government unless there be an amendment.

5.      The Federal “Gun Control Act of 1968” banning the sale of military weapons and machine guns to US Citizens without approval of the Attorney General and all such acts and laws in violation of the Second Amendment;

6.      The power to seize property and business records without first obtaining a warrant as provided in the so-called “Patriot Act” in violation of Article IV of the US Constitution;

7.      The existence of and operation of the Federal Department of Education implementing the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 and the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) program without any such powers enumerated in the “Constitution of the United States” in violation of the Tenth Amendment;

8.      The so-called unlimited “Bank Bail-out” with the so-called “Troubled Asset Relief Program” (TARP) starting with approximately 800 billion dollars, changes every person in the “several States” and their posterity into bank slaves in violation of the Tenth Amendment and the laws of nature’s God;

9.      The institution and existence of a banking monopoly known as the “Federal Reserve” consisting of a handful of private banks or any “central bank” to issue unconstitutional paper debt notes as currency or any other form of currency of the said Union in violation of Article 1 Section 8 Clause 5 and the Tenth Amendment.

10.  The taxation of wages of Americans in the several states. Wages are considered property and property is not taxable by the federal government. There is no income or gain from wages as they are an equal swap of property value. Taxation of wages is confiscation of property. There is no amendment to tax wages only income or gain from any source.

Others could be listed here as well, but considering the magnitude of these and that only one is sufficient to dissolve the federal union and the authority it once had, it seems a superfluous exercise. The will of the people is contained in the Constitution and when that is altered by law without their permission by amendment whether by the legislature, executive or judicial branch, they have breached the trust of the people and they forfeit all authority.

Now we see that those in the so-called "federal government" are rebels who have overthrown and dissolved our nation and instituted a state of war against the people:

"Sec. 226. Thirdly, I answer, that this doctrine of a power in the people of providing for their safety a-new, by a new legislative, when their legislators have acted contrary to their trust, by invading their property, is the best fence against rebellion, and the probablest means to hinder it: for rebellion being an opposition, not to persons, but authority, which is founded only in the constitutions and laws of the government; those, whoever they be, who by force break through, and by force justify their violation of them, are truly and properly rebels: for when men, by entering into society and civil-government, have excluded force, and introduced laws for the preservation of property, peace, and unity amongst themselves, those who set up force again in opposition to the laws, do rebellare, that is, bring back again the state of war, and are properly rebels: which they who are in power, (by the pretence they have to authority, the temptation of force they have in their hands, and the flattery of those about them) being likeliest to do; the properest way to prevent the evil, is to shew them the danger and injustice of it, who are under the greatest temptation to run into it.

Sec. 227. In both the fore-mentioned cases, when either the legislative is changed, or the legislators act contrary to the end for which they were constituted; those who are guilty are guilty of rebellion: for if any one by force takes away the established legislative of any society, and the laws by them made, pursuant to their trust, he thereby takes away the umpirage, which every one had consented to, for a peaceable decision of all their controversies, and a bar to the state of war amongst them. They, who remove, or change the legislative, take away this decisive power, which no body can have, but by the appointment and consent of the people; and so destroying the authority which the people did, and no body else can set up, and introducing a power which the people hath not authorized, they actually introduce a state of war, which is that of force without authority: and thus, by removing the legislative established by the society, (in whose decisions the people acquiesced and united, as to that of their own will) they untie the knot, and expose the people a-new to the state of war, And if those, who by force take away the legislative, are rebels, the legislators themselves, as has been shewn, can be no less esteemed so; when they, who were set up for the protection, and preservation of the people, their liberties and properties, shall by force invade and endeavour to take them away; and so they putting themselves into a state of war with those who made them the protectors and guardians of their peace, are properly, and with the greatest aggravation, rebellantes, rebels."[4]

Need we show anything else to prove that it is reasonable to distrust the so-called "federal government" and their unlawful federal standing army practicing something they call "Jade Helm 15," which means taking control of that which causes pain in the side in the year 2015?

It is not only time to Militia together but time to form a new legislative for the protection or our lives, liberties and possessions as the dissolved federal government has shown its intent well enough by calling Texas, Utah and part of California "hostile." This so-called operation or exercise is a cover for putting into place heavy military equipment without disturbing the average person who relies on weaponized main stream media for their "news."

Fourthly, The delivery also of the people into the subjection of a foreign power, either by the prince, or by the legislative, is certainly a change of the legislative, and so a dissolution of the government: for the end why people entered into society being to be preserved one intire, free, independent society, to be governed by its own laws; this is lost, whenever they are given up into the power of another.
