Ferrara - Democracy Fail, How's Taxation WITH Representation Working?

Contains Exclusive: Transcript Topics: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

"When that idea [democracy] is introduced, you have coming into the political structure of a society this whole notion of representation, that government is a compact between the people and the government as established through their representatives. The great irony of representation is that over time it swallows up everything and destroys true liberty. If anybody doubts that, let me ask a simple question: How has taxation with representation worked out for us?"….Continue

Scale is Part of the Reason Leviathan Doesn't Work Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "The beauty of Jeff’s tilt-at-windmills quest is, number one, it shows how out of scale, I think irretrievably, irrevocably out of scale this union of states is.  It can’t be fixed.  It’s too big.  Like AT&T back in the 1980s, it has to be broken up.  There is no way around this.  Get this through your heads."  Check out today’s transcript for the rest… Begin Mik….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Number one, cleanse your mind of points A, B and C because they’re not going to happen unless we can get the federal monster and its representative forms back into scale.  Okay, how are we going to do that?  Well, we would need to have one member of Congress for approximately every 30,000 citizens.  That would mean that we would have just over 10,000 members of Congress.  Mike, that’s not going to work.  That’s too many co….Continue

George Mason and Direct Tax Power Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "George Mason was an epicurean republican aristocrat.  He was one of the wisest men of his generation and Mason was having none of this talk about having a new central government that was going to have the power to lay and collect direct taxes.  Of course, Madison and company would say they’re not direct taxes, they’re indirect, but we’ll save that for another day."  Check out today’s tra….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Let’s go all the way back to 1787 and let’s figure out why there was a Senate to start with. To answer that question is to shed some light on the way things are supposed to work in the American constitutional system, which, by the time I’m finished with this, it’s not the way I’m going to tell you they work because they don’t work like that any longer.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I think you would have a revolution in thought before you’d have a revolution in government, meaning you would know and you will know when a clamoring mass of people are agitated enough and in sufficient numbers to either demand a change or to effect a change as a result of that demand. People keep asking the same question, don’t they? Isn’t that interesting? They all want to know when the next phase begins. Check out today….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Wouldn’t it then be a quid pro quo to say then that the people that live in the purple or blue counties are as entitled to their own share or their own self-government as the people that are in the red counties? If they are, then what is the argument to say we’re going to deny the people in the other counties the right to govern themselves? If the blue county, because it has a majority and can sway a statewide election, is goin….Continue

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I don’t think that having aged members of the United States Senate is, by definition, a bad thing. That’s why the age requirement to be a senator makes you five years older than you have to be to be a member of the House of Representin’. The framers did consider: What’s the difference between the House of Representatives and the Senate? It was debated and said the Senate would be the wiser ver….Continue

Charles Lee Saw The Writing On The Wall - Now America Is Despotic And Tyrannical As Predicted

Contains Exclusive: Transcript Topics: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The reason I share with you Lee’s letter is because Lee sees the writing on the wall if arrogant men, if designing men are not prevented from obtaining too much power. This is exactly what has transpired because it is the natural course. This requires virtuous statesmen to stop this, to inveigh against it, to warn about it, to protest mightily, to organize and bring people of good conscience together to say no.

Scale Matters If You Want To Be Represented In Congress

Contains Exclusive: Transcript Topics: , , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript –If we had one representative for every 30,000 souls, which was the vision of the framers and was honored all the way up until the 1910 census, if you have one representative for every 30,000 souls in the United States, you would have approximately, I believe the number is around 8,700 members of the House of Representin’. Now, where are 8,700 members of Congress going to meet? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue

Congress Is Out Of Scale and Has Been Since At Least 1929

Contains Exclusive: Audio, Transcript Topics: , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - The idea or the theory that the House of Representatives represents the people in their political capacity ended in 1929.  That was the first time in the history of the United States when the Congress decided that they would not use the census to determine representation in the House.  They froze it.  It’s been at that same number ever since.  Although the population has increased tenfold, members of the House of Represen….Continue

[The powerful Executive branch]...converts representation into vassalage to the leaders of parties, disciplined, not by the comparatively honourable infliction of the lash, but by the base and wicked sophism, that it is honourable to stick to a party, and treacherous to adhere to conscience. The disciples of this infamous doctrine are forged into tools for ambition and tyranny by praises and rewards, whilst honesty is discouraged by base epithets, as a foil to the varnish with which the decoys are painted, designed to deceive and enslave the multitude
