Freeborn Americans Have God-Given Rights To …

I am a freeborn American with God-given rights.  This means I submit voluntarily, or I don’t submit at all. As an American, my government is my servant, not my master.  As a freeborn American, according to the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence, I have the God-given right to:

– Exercise my religion without interference from the government.  Therefore I cannot be forced by government to fund something that violates my religious conscience, and I cannot be forced to purchase something that forces me to violate my religious convictions. Any government forcing citizens to violate conscience violates God-given rights.  Such government renders itself illegitimate, unworthy of citizen cooperation.  

In this light Obamacare is an abomination because it forces citizens to pay for abortion drugs and services and contraception, in the view of many, immoral measures representing government infringement on the free exercise clause, Amendment 1, Bill of Rights, U.S. Constitution.  

The U.S. government is also found infringing on the free exercise of pastors addressing moral and social issues, using the tax code to silence pastors, and using zoning regulations to prevent churches from operating.  These too are violations of God-given rights, infringements we demand government halt or be found in contempt by The People.

– Freedom of speech, a right and a responsibility.  I have the right to speak out without fear of reprisal, and I have a responsibility to speak the truth so far as God grants the ability to determine truth.  Hate crimes laws are specifically designed to stifle speech, to silence any traditionalist speaking on the moral issues of the day.  These laws are a violation of my God-given rights, and a violation of my Constitutional right to free speech.  They are therefore unlawful and will not be obeyed.  

The People have a right to organize political and educational groups to participate in and improve society — all part of exercising free speech. When government uses the IRS and other agencies to silence such groups, government acts illegally, becoming unfit to govern.  Any government abridging freedom of speech has lost all right to govern, having lost the consent of the governed.

– Freedom of the press.  The U.S. government is actively engaged in spying on reporters, intimidating journalists, and threatening them in attempts to control the flow of information needed by citizens to make good decisions in selecting representatives.  Persecuting the Associated Press and Fox News, this government commits crimes against its own citizens.  In all this the U.S. government has become tyrannical, violating of the U.S Constitution.  Freeborn Americans must confront such tyranny or forfeit liberty.
