Ghosts of Founders Past Reveal Our Future: John Taylor on Congress

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Let's not pretend that everyone in the House of Representin' is fighting against the debt ceiling being raised for all the right reasons. Oh, there are certainly a few, but for the most part, it's not because they are DEFENDERS OF THE CONSTITUTION, they are doing for their own selfish reasons. But it's always been like that... well, maybe not the FIRST Congress, but very soon after that, and John Taylor of Caroline witnessed it happening. Why does it matter? Because in his book, Tyranny Unmasked, John Taylor saw our future, he witnessed what we were going to become now. If only we had listened to John Taylor, we may not be in the situation we are in now.

What It Means to be Sovereign

Mandeville, LA - Mike Church Show Exclusive Transcript - People give the government power. Only the people are sovereign. This is what you’ll learn. Only the people can grant power. In the grant of power, if there is no mechanism to take it back, then you’re not sovereign. This is something that I’m just learning from going back and reading source documents written by Jefferson, Taylor of Caroline and other luminaries, David Hume and others at the time. So if you people in Massachusetts or in whatever state, if you don’t like what it is that your legislature is doing or how it is consecrated, if you don’t have the power to take it back, then you’ve already lost your freedoms and you’re not sovereign anymore and then you’re in really big trouble.

Nullification Confusion? Come Here For Help.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The process of Nullification is gaining steam, which should make you and me excited, right? But in this case the process of Nullification is being explained incorrectly to people in a poll. In the poll, people are being told that Nullification is simply a state being able to invalidate any federal law that they don't agree with. Well that's not in the spirit of Nullification, we made a compact with the Federal Government when the Constitution was ratified and, even though the power has been reversed since 1776 from the states to the Feds, we can't just invalidate any Federal Acts we feel like.

John Taylor On Taxes – Once They Start, They Never Stop

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The citizens of this country are just as stupid as we can be, and that includes our forefathers who are just as lazy and apathetic as we could be. All the powers that we have granted that we refuse to reclaim are just mindboggling. The tyranny that could be inveighed on our heads is just staggering. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Nullification Illegal? Nah, It’s the RIGHT of the State.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Many of the liberals out there will tell you that Nullification is illegal, in fact Lincoln himself supposedly outlawed it, but that's not possible. Nullification and interposition are the rights and the duty of the states when the Federal (National) Government gets out of hand. Just watch and listen to today's Founders TV to learn more from Mike as he discusses Donald Livingston's testimony on the subject, and be sure and pick up his book "Rethinking the American Union" in the Founders Tradin' Post!

John Taylor Explains Our Corruptions; Mike Explains Why Living in the U.S. Is NOT Living Free

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Taylor continues to insist that if you let just a little tyranny into the process so that you can control it, you are ultimately controlled by it. Just imagine if he could witness what we see today, and imagine what his thought would be. “You boys have to do what with what?” Don’t kid yourselves with the idea that you are free because you’re not, none of us are, not as long as that hulking menace that sits on the banks of that river in the ten-mile square that Patrick Henry talked about is there making rules, laws and regulations, taxing, redistributing our wealth at will.

John Taylor of Caroline – Debts Are Unnecessary to a Free People

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - What Taylor is saying is that you should only have a tariff because you have a couple duties that the general government has to discharge. You should only have the tariff so that you can raise money to do that. You should not use the tariff to enrich anyone. You should not use the tariff as a tool to try to guide commerce. Commerce will guide itself. The genius and the brilliance of John Taylor of Caroline in the founding generation is unequal. He got it; he got all of it. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

ObamaCare is Being Nullified by Governors Refusing to Open Exchanges

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - If the Feds cannot implement a plan to make use of our medical services, if they cannot implement a plan to take over and micromanage and manage our healthcare services, medical services, the medical services industry for all of us, what makes anyone think they can take over and manage our consumption of drugs for 314 million people? What makes you think they can take over and manage the administration of how we generate energy in our states, how we educate children in the states? My point is that they can’t do any of these things if the state legislatures and the people in the state don’t go along. Maybe this has been the out all along. Maybe those of us that have been counseling nullification and interposition and the election of governors that would say no to the exchanges, maybe that has always been the remedy that would deliver the repeal of ObamaCare that was so desired by so many.

Abel Upshur: States Are In Charge of Feds SCOTUS Hearing; Marriage Case is an Outcry

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Brion McClanahan has an essay that is posted at The American Conservative Magazine today. In his essay “Is Secession Legal,” at one point in here, he gets to a great historical document that has not even been introduced on this show. It is Abel Upshur’s A Brief Enquiry into the True Nature and Character of Our Federal Government. Upshur wrote this in response to the lunatic Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story. The fact that this guy ever had a vote on the high court is a testament to how bungled and screwed up Article III of the Constitution was and remains. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

It Didn’t Take 200 Years To Go This Far Off Course

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Well, I don’t think it took 200 years to get this far screwed. There is something to be said for someone (hint, hint) writing and producing a movie that has as its feature that Patrick Henry and George Mason were successful in defeating the ratification of the Constitution in Virginia, which would have defeated ratification in New York, and probably would have defeated ratification in toto. What would have happened? Then the three-fifths compromise on slaves never would have been met. You don’t know then what would have happened in the 1810’s, ‘20s and ‘30s with the Missouri Compromise. You don’t know what would have come after that. You don’t know that Southerners would have made it their -- the life of their men and young men basically was to defend their system of economics, which had slavery at its center. They were compelled to do so. They had no choice in the matter, save for all becoming impoverished themselves. Of course, the industrial revolution was right around the corner and they could not have known that. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

My Liberty Should Not Be On Your Ballot

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - We are micromanaged and governmentalized in a corrupt fashion just like they are in European countries that we so love to decry, just as they are in Canada as we so love to decry. Are there differences? Yes. Are there bigger tyrannies in Europe than there are here? I’m sure there are. Are there bigger tyrannies against civil liberties than there are here in Europe? I guarantee you there are. We don’t want to talk about that. We want to talk about our conditional surrender, basically. Let’s wave the white flag and surrender. Well, enjoy. Some of us are going to man the ramparts for the rest of you that have surrendered. We’ll hold the Gadsden Flag, and we actually mean holding the Gadsden Flag “Don’t Tread On Us.” Check out the rest in today's audio and transcript...

Debbie Schlussel Reviews “What Lincoln Killed”

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Here's a quote from Debbie's review, read the rest in today's transcript: "It was interesting. To me, that’s the point of something like this, to make people think, and also to educate them. I always learn a lot when I listen to and/or watch your historical projects. You really are a scholar of these things. They don’t teach this stuff. Sure, I learned about the Supremacy Clause, I learned that a lot of the founders wanted to stay with Britain, I learned about a lot of the basics of what you delve into far more deeply. Most of the facts and most of the things you talked about, I had no clue. I never had learned about John Taylor of Caroline ever. I learned of him from you."

No Need For Flat Taxes or Excise Taxes, John Taylor Preferred Duties and Imposts

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - The preferable way to raise revenues, and this makes sure that it is totally equally apportioned among all the people of the several states, is to tax only, to do duties and imposts, tariffs as they’re known. As long as they are uniform and as long as they are across the board -- and it’s not a protective tax either. It’s cost of doing business in this country. If you want to do business here, here’s your five percent duty or five percent impost. This way, if there is taxation, it is transparent, it is on the importation, it is not on the manufacture, it is not an excise, which is an indirect tax. Then doing business and having your precious general government is not a penalty. In other words, it just discharges the few duties that it has to. If you have to have money for a war, you raise bonds. You do it the old fashioned way. You sell bonds and sell debt. “We’ll pay you back in the future if you’ll help us build a battleship today.”

John Taylor Warned Us Of The Evils Of The Party System

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - In John Taylor of Caroline's book "Inquiry Into The Principles of the Government of the United States" he warned us of the party system. He said that people involved in these parties would use them as "tools for ambition and tyranny". And, in modern layman's speak, he said that the political parties would turn into people voting for the lesser of two evils instead of choosing their conscience.

Who Are These Elites That Consume and Rule Us?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - A lot of these people exist under the umbrella of this thing called non-profits. There are other designations. There are some non-profits that actually are non-profits. You hear them talked about as non-partisan and this and that and the other. Ladies and gentlemen, they’re all in on it. They’re all in on it. I sit here on a daily basis and I watch what they serve up on CSPAN and CSPAN2 when Congress is not in session. I just marvel. I’m like how in the world are all these people necessary to our existence here? Our elites, they never solve a problem. Check out the rest in today's audio and transcript...
