Beware of Representatives who do not represent you

Beware of your Congressional Representatives who do not represent you.
They betray the trust you gave them. In the ultimate betrayal they sold you to foreigners.

Example: if you elect Bar Attornies to the legislature, they have allegiance to their foreign masters. The legislated laws cannot be copyrighted. The law books are published by lawyers, and are copyrighted. If your representative enacts a change to your state’s codified laws, instead of the statutes at large, he is committing mutiny against the trust you gave him.

Locke’s Second Treatise of Government, 1690:

“Sec. 22. THE natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on
earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but to
have only the law of nature for his rule. The liberty of man, in society, is
to be under no other legislative power, but that established, by consent, in
the commonwealth; nor under the dominion of any will, or restraint of any
law, but what that legislative shall enact, according to the trust put in
it. Freedom then is not what Sir Robert Filmer tells us, Observations, A.
55. a liberty for every one to do what he lists, to live as he pleases, and
not to be tied by any laws: but freedom of men under government is, to have
a standing rule to live by, common to every one of that society, and made by
the legislative power erected in it; a liberty to follow my own will in all
things, where the rule prescribes not; and not to be subject to the
inconstant, uncertain, unknown, arbitrary will of another man: as freedom of
nature is, to be under no other restraint but the law of nature.”

“Sec. 141. Fourthly, The legislative cannot transfer the power of making laws
to any other hands: for it being but a delegated power from the people, they
who have it cannot pass it over to others. The people alone can appoint the
form of the common-wealth, which is by constituting the legislative, and
appointing in whose hands that shall be. And when the people have said, We
will submit to rules, and be governed by laws made by such men, and in such
forms, no body else can say other men shall make laws for them; nor can the
people be bound by any laws, but such as are enacted by those whom they have
chosen, and authorized to make laws for them. The power of the legislative,
being derived from the people by a positive voluntary grant and institution,
can be no other than what that positive grant conveyed, which being only to
make laws, and not to make legislators, the legislative can have no power to
transfer their authority of making laws, and place it in other hands.”

Even Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Law, Book 4, explains that that rights protect us from every known method of compulsion. [ link to an 1803 revision that includes American law ]

“The rights themselves, thus defined by these several statutes, consist in a number of private immunities, which will appear, from what has been premised, to be indeed no other, than either that residuum of natural liberty, which is not required by the laws of society to be sacrificed to public convenience; or else those civil privileges, which society hath engaged to provide, in lieu of the natural liberties so given up by individuals. These, therefore, were formerly, either by inheritance or purchase, the rights of all mankind; but, in most other countries of the world being now more or less debased and destroyed, they at present may be said to remain, in a peculiar and emphatical manner, the rights of the people of England. And these may be reduced to three principal or primary articles; the right of personal security, the right of personal liberty, and the right of private property: because, as there is no other known method of compulsion, or of abridging man’s natural free will, but by an infringement or diminution of one or other of these important rights, the preservation of these, inviolate, may justly be said to include the preservation of our civil immunities in their largest and most extensive sense. “

If government does not protect you from compulsion, perhaps you would want to find out why.
