Somehow the roles of “we the people” of these United States, as master/employer and our representatives in Congress, including the President, and employees of our governmental bureaucracies, as our public servants/employees, have become reversed. Those in our State governments have been complicit in this role reversal and act in the same manner.
Whatever the causes, this situation can not stand. Either “we the people” live in a Constitutional Republic or we do not.
No law, no statute, no treaty or no executives order can overrule the individual freedoms enumerated in the “Bill of Rights“.
Until this is rectified, I suggest non-violent, non-cooperation whenever possible and don’t forget the most powerful word.
