  1. Since you so admire the behavior in Tahrir Square, Mr. Swanson, will you be promoting the gang-raping of female reporters in the crowd?

  3. Shut it down! I just prefer it not reopen. Put the power back where it belongs… with the states and the citizens as defined by the Tenth Amendment.

    1. You have hit the nail on the head. “America” as our Founders intended it is only found on the State level. Only State governmnts administer the common-law that recognizes and protects our God given unalienable “natural” rights.

      Every State Constitution begins by recognizing God as the source of our liberty. Only State governments recognize God, Natural Law (common-law), and our God given unalienable “natural” rights, which pre-date the foundation of government.

      The “federal” government is not a common-law institution, it excercises an “international law” authority called admiralty jurisdiction, a military authority that does not recognize and protect rights, but enforces law. It was established by the States to regulate commerce, warfare, etc. It was never intended to extend to the internal domestic affairs of the States, or the citizens of those States whose rights were protected by their State governments.

      The 14th Amendment created an ipso-facto privileged “federal” citizenship to accomodate the freed slaves (and the colored minorities who could not be admitted to citizenship in any of the States).

      The 14th Amendment citizen is a government created “subject”, the first in our history. While the State citizen is the “posterity” of the founding generation and serves as governments creator, its sovereign “principal” and source of its authority, the “federal” citizen is subject to federal authority and serves as an “agent” to Congress.

      “Federal” citizenship is the product of law, and is therefor regulated entirely by the law of its creation. Accordingly, the “federal” citizen does not have the God given “natural” rights as do the State citizen. They have statutory “civil rights” confered upon them by Congress established by the Civil Rights Act of 1866.

      Should the “federal” government shut down, it wouold only affect the after-market America and its minority citizens. The 10th Amendment refers to the “People” of the United States who were the original State citizens.

      It is the 14th Amendment that forced the “alien jurisdiction” our Founders purged from the land back onto back onto State governments forcing them to violate their own Constituions.

  4. Okay let them shut down government, I know the government under Mr Obama will do nothing to them other than provide more and more encouragment for the movement — Obama may even go and speak before them as he is a progressive socialist as well.

    1. Right on. These guys on this web site have not clue about what is going on in the real world. If they shut down the governmentm, then the idiots can not do anything, such as make more enviormental regs that ruin business and keep the dictator Obama from doing anymore damage to our great country. We have not had riots in our streets since the 60’s and if they think this will change anything, they are mistaken. Obama is such a narcisst that he will send in the guard and make a big deal out of it, when ignoring them is the answer.
