Breach of Trust

Decades ago, the Federal Government usurped the power vested to the
people and the States by our Constitution. For example, President
Franklin D. Roosevelt Executive Order 6102, 5 April 1933, requiring
"all gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates" to be delivered
to the Federal Reserve Bank is an example of Executive Abuse of Power.
Failure to comply with this order could subject you to huge fines and
prison! Other examples of violations of the Constitution include:
Creation of the Federal Reserve, Suspension of Habeas Corpus by Bush
and Lincoln, Executive Orders to assassinate American Citizens by
President Obama, and etc. The combined treasonous acts by our elected
officials were met with silence. I fear, the experiment that began so
long ago is over, and the result, failure. We the People, let it

I take leave with a quote attributed to Thomas Jefferson: "When
governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear
the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people
to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to
protect themselves against tyranny in government." Also, remember
Locke explores the idea of revolution and insists that the people who
have created government with unanimous consent in order to preserve
their property and safety should not be betrayed by the very
institutions they gave birth to. So Locke states that if any of the
three powers in government make a move "to take away and destroy the
property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary
power" then the people are no longer expected to obey the political
authority. If the government is guilty of a "breach of trust they
forfeit the power"

Finally, I believe we are at the moment that Locke spoke: (Summarized
here) Locke views rebellion as a way to reinstate political rights
violated by an unjust sovereign. He states that once the government
has breached the trust of the citizenry, the people "have a right to
resume their original liberty, and, by the establishment of a new
legislative…provide for their own safety and security". The people's
duty is to subvert the authority that is no longer functioning in a
just manner, a manner appropriate to its creation, and to assert their
rights as stipulated by the social contract by forming a new
