THE LAW IS AN ASS

“If the law supposes that,’ the law is an ass, an idiot.’ Thus, the law is stupid.” -Mr. Bumble of the Charles Dickens’ novel Oliver Twist
HOSTAGE TO THE LAW
“And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers” -Luke 11.46
It is important to understand that the U.S. Code contains many thousands – a multitude – of statutory laws. Arguably one cannot get through a day without violating one or more of these statutes; they are all inclusive, intrusive, and invasive to every segment of our day to day existence. They are a virtual web of entrapment and they have been specifically drafted to that purpose. These statutes are a practical catch-all that enables the control of the people by the federal government through its increasingly oppressive and tyrannical enforcement agencies. The U.S. Code as it exists is an enemy of justice and it separates the people from their God-given and inherent liberties.
Those who insist that statutory law is not binding because it was enacted without the consent of the people are barking up the wrong tree. In the secular subjective minds of the federal judiciary and the federal government the statutes of the U.S. Code are binding and enforceable. Some people are hard learners and those who shun the spiritual path just do not understand that they will never of their own ability bring about a return of Constitutional government, common law, or any of the other tenants or personal freedoms of a Constitutional Republic.
