When we go to the polls on November 4, we do so believing we are doing the right thing, doing our duty as responsible citizens of the United States. What would you say if I were to tell you you may be may be committing high treason against the United States with your vote?
Mr. Evan Whittington believes that nearly all of us will be throwing our support behind one of two traitors—yes, you read that right—whenever we cast our ballots. Not long after expressing this sentiment in his LiveJournal, I asked to interview him to find out more about his views.
Thank you for joining us, Mr. Whittington. Your views are beyond a doubt controversial. How did you arrive at the conclusion that 99.9% of all sitting members of Congress are actively committing treason against the United States?
No politician intends to completely overthrow the government which is what most people think of as treason; however, as a US citizen, your sovereignty is defined and founded in the US Constitution. The vast majority of what the federal government is involved in now exist outside of the jurisdiction set by the constitution and have slowly eroded our rights and sovereignty as citizens. These lawmakers took an oath to defend the Constitution, yet knowingly seek to find ways around it and if given the opportunity, would eliminate it altogether and that’s where, I contend, the charge of treason comes into play.
You say, “your sovereignty”, as though We the People are supposed to have it. Where do we look in the Constitution to see where the sovereignty in the U.S. really lies?
Begin with the Declaration of Independence. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Combined with The Bill of Rights which spell out those rights and set limitations on government in encroaching into our lives. Your sovereignty lies within those 10 amendments.
Another somewhat controversial position I hold on this issue is the fact that, when an authority figure infringes on a citizens unalienable rights, they are taking what was granted by God and will have to answer to him for that sin.
What exactly are they doing that you call treason?
Most recently, they’ve just nationalized the banking industry giving the Federal Reserve nearly unlimited power in regulating mortgage companies (no doubt this new power will eventually extend to all sectors of the banking industry). The medical industry is the next likely target with the inevitable election of Obama. Nowhere in the constitution does it give the US government the authority to control these businesses as they are now, but neither congress nor the public seem to care. They only seem interested in what government can do for them and how much money they can get out of current policies.
