Do The Many Really Have to Obey the Few? Asking Permission From the Government

8th October 2012

I remember in grade school that some of the boys in class were being disruptive by talking and the nun told us all to stand and put out our hands so she could smack our hand with a ruler. About half the class stood up and put out their hand but when they saw that the rest of us were still sitting at our desks they slowly sat back down. The bewildered nun didn’t know what to do and finally told us to open our books.

That’s what happens when a person in authority threatens you and you all stand up to them. They expect you to obey and when you don’t they back down. In other words, they are nothing more than the school yard bully.

The government is so out of control and making laws that are insane. People are now being fined for the simplest things. Remember the slogan, “Buckle Up – It’s the Law”. You can be fined for not wearing a seatbelt in your own car. You can be fined for using a rain barrel to save water to irrigate your small garden in the back yard; you can be arrested for selling raw milk which has been a staple for thousands of years. You can be fined or arrested for photographing the police abusing someone and your camera confiscated. The government mandates you get vaccines for your babies and children when legitimate research tells you it is harmful. A woman was fined $81 for parking her car with the windows rolled down. The police classified it as an unsecured vehicle that could easily be broken into. Another woman was recently fined for growing a small garden in her front yard. What would happen if we all planted a small garden in our front yard? Actually, that might not be a bad idea. We would have some GM free veggies. Are you really going to obey these ridiculous rules or laws? If you do they will keep adding more.

The elite think they can rule you by starting out slowly. I’m sure you’ve heard the story of putting a frog in a pan of lukewarm water and then slowly heating it up and the frog doesn’t realize that he is being boiled alive until it’s too late to get out of the pot. Mostly that’s what the government does to us. First one license or fine which they got away with, then another, then another, and now we have well over a hundred different licenses we are required to obtain and fines we are expected to pay. Another manner in which the government controls you is by fear.

The government tells us the laws are for our safety. They won’t label GM food because they know it will harm your health; even the wild animals won’t eat it; rats fed Monsanto GM corn developed shockingly large cancer tumors. They add sodium fluoride to our water and to our toothpaste which is a rat poison; they fill our skies with chemicals, they fill the atmosphere with all sorts of radiation including cell phone towers. If they are for our safety, why do they hide many of those health-threatening cell phone towers in trees, and church steeples and crosses, water towers, and schools? I’ve even seen them in palm trees. Churches and schools love these because they generate big bucks. Dr. Mercola states on his website:

As school budgets shrink, some are getting money from an unlikely and controversial source: cell phone tower installations. Local schools can make hundreds of thousands of dollars from leases on towers.

Why did you get a marriage license? Most people get one because everyone else does; it’s the norm; it’s the law. My research showed the first marriage license was issued in 1856 in Shawnee, Kansas. So since the beginning of recorded time it was the norm to marry without a license until 1856.

Was Adam & Eve married? Did Adam & Eve need a license, the authorization of some man or government? It is plain to see that God recognizes a couple as married when they “cleave unto” each other. Genesis 2:23-24 (not when a government gives them a license/permission).

Did you know there are Pastors who will marry without a marriage license and they are more common than you think? All you have to do is go online or open up your local phone book and call the numbers in the churches section. Sooner or later you will find a man of God who hasn’t sold his soul applying for a 501(c) corporate status with the IRS and who believes that there ought to be a separation between church and state and marriage and state.

Pastor Trewhella of the Mercy Seat Christian Church in Wisconsin stated;

“You should not have to obtain a license from the State to marry someone anymore than you should have to obtain a license from the State to be a parent, which some in academic and legislative circles are currently pushing to be made law”. ~

When Pastor Trewhella marries a couple, he always buys them a Family Bible which contains birth and death records, and a marriage certificate. Record the marriage in the Family Bible. What’s recorded in a Family Bible will stand up as a legally binding document in any court of law in America. Both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were married without a marriage license. They simply recorded their marriage in their Family Bibles. So should we. What happens if no one acquires a marriage license from the government? Well, outside of the obvious, we wouldn’t have to ask permission from the government to get a divorce.

If every American refused to obey these insane laws what will the elite do? The same thing as the nun or the school yard bully when not obeyed – brute force and if that doesn’t work, they will back down. Just like the schoolyard bully who takes your lunch money every day. A day comes when you tell him “no” and he beats you up. You don’t give him your lunch money the next day and he beats you up again. Then he looks for someone else who will ‘obey’ him. Where would that school yard bully be if no one gave him their lunch money? Where would the government be if no one asked for permission and never got another license or paid another fee or fine?

Let me clarify what a license or permit is. It is simply asking permission from the government and paying the government a fee for what we have every God-given right to do in the first place – for free, without asking anyone for permission. Burn that statement into your mind. Memorize it, use it as a chant. If that’s not bad enough, we must renew many licenses’ periodically and pay again and again. What if we all decided we would no longer get or renew our driver’s license and pay them for the right to drive our own car? What if we all stopped getting a license of any kind? They could fine us. But what if we didn’t pay the fine? We might go to jail. Where do a few get off telling the many we can’t get married, defend ourselves, or drive a car or go fishing or hunting or any of our other God-given rights without their permission? I don’t need the government to give me permission to purchase a gun to defend myself. Why aren’t you outraged? Just because you grew up under these insane rules and you accepted them as normal you don’t have to obey them anymore. They aren’t normal; they’re insane; you are obeying insane laws. You don’t have to stand up and put your hand out so the nun can whack it with a piece of wood or give your lunch money to the school yard bully anymore. Like the frog, you’re slowly being boiled.

Every permit, every license, and every birth certificate has a number on it. You even have a social security number. Have you ever asked why you and everything you do has a number on it? It’s to keep track of you, what you do, where you do it and when you do it. If you move you have to notify various government agencies of your new address. Why is that? Why isn’t just notifying the post office of a change of address enough?

Why can the government get away with these insane laws and fines? For several reasons. You do what you’re told because you believe it to be the norm; it’s what everyone else does. That doesn’t make it right. Another reason people follow these ridiculous laws is because of fear. If I don’t get my children all the vaccines the government mandates my children won’t be able to get into school and I fear the law will come down on me, maybe arrest me and put my children in Children’s Services. I must get this flu shot because if I don’t I fear I will get the flu. Besides, my doctor told me to get a flu shot, television told me to get the flu shot, the local drugstore advertises the flu shot. I believe the reason my classmates sat back down when they saw the rest of us still sitting is because they feared us more than they feared the nun with her little ruler.

If a slave owner can tell his slaves what to do, what does it mean when the government tells you what you can do? It means you’re a slave to the government. Yes, it’s the same government that tells you that you are a free man living in a free country.

There is a story about two frogs hopping down a country road and they happen to hop into a bucket of fresh milk. They begin thrashing about and swimming in the milk and the older one got really tired and gave up and died. The younger one kept on swimming until he felt something solid under his feet and hopped out. (No, it wasn’t the body of the dead frog!) He thrashed so much and so long he turned the milk into butter.

The moral of the story is “there are butter days ahead”…if we all decide NOT to OBEY.

If we all stop obeying these insane rules the government places upon us, there will be better days ahead with true freedom, but you gotta fight for it by being passive – by not obeying – by not applying for anymore licenses and paying them a fee and obeying them. Freedom is not going to come softly in the night while you sleep. Don’t leave it for the “other” guy. Remember, you are the “other” guy to everyone else.

You Don’t Have To Get or Renew Anymore Licenses!

You Don’t Have To Pay Anymore Fees or Fines!

You Don’t Have To Obey Anymore!

    Thank you so much for putting into words the thoughts I have been having more and more the past few years. Now, if I can just convince my family and friends and they can convince their families and friends we could start a “pyramid scheme” that would create freedom for the first time since the mid-1800’s,

  • Laura

    Again Jan you have given people something to think about. Like all the directions that we hear from that tell us we have to get a flu shot, until we accept it, we need to hear this message from as many different directions as possible to make some people think and realize that everything the government asks for does not have to be given to them.Maybe people will start thinking for themselves.

  • MLS

    Great article, but it seems a bit ironic that the “About the Author” section says she got her astrology LICENSE in 1974!

    • Jan

      That’s because I wasn’t awake in 1974. But I am now!

  • wendy pillar

    You have a good point, but I’m not sure a world without gun licences or driving licences would be an improvement! In overcrowded lands, there are some necessary limits to individual liberty. What is needed is more controls on big business’s ability to exploit people, but the government is far more reluctant to do that, for some reason

  • jan – please email me, i would like to discuss this in private. you point out the obviousness of what you state, however I know how to engineer your legal reality to catch up to your spirits intent…

    I live outside the domestic US…I could explain in detail why you HAVE to get a license, birth certificate (bond) etc…it all adds up and once you get over the 5 stages of grief to becoming peace within, you can take the steps needed to walk off the plantation…

      we HAVE to get liscences, etc. cos the gov can make money, have power over us. its simple

  • Jan

    Thank you for the offer but no thank you.

  • San

    I’m in total agreement when it comes to “these insane rules the government places on us.” A license for this, a license for that. They are wearing me out and I’m tired of following those rules and am opting out of many. So! Please tell me Jan Fox no longer renews her astrology license.

    • Jan

      An astrology license is one license you don’t have to renew. And I don’t renew other licenses either. And I don’t fly either because of all their insane rules. I stopped with “take off your shoes.”

    • michelle forus

      why would she do that? Astrology is a mathamatical science, I used to think the same way as you so I studied it to prove it was BS and I was unable to because of its acuracy,. Don’t nock it until you try it!

    An excellent article. It’s high time that most people woke up and realised that NOBODY has the right to violate the free will of others. No politician in any government anywhere has any right to control the lives of other people, or to infringe their God-given free will. However, with freedom comes responsibility – the responsibility of ensuring that we do not violate the rights or free will of others. “My rights end where yours begin”, and vice-versa. We were not born to become slaves of a bunch of sick, power-mad politicians, and we have to take back the power that they have misappropriated. We have NO duty to obey any of them, for they are elected to serve us, not to control us.

  • linda

    great article, i agree with it, i have wondered about this for along time, wondering how a few pl ( the elite) can control so many ppl for so long, as for liscences, i dont bother with then, i have found there are many ways around all the crap the gov decides we should have, wed all be better off if wed stand togeather and stop putting up with all the gov whims, etc. , humanity has survived for centuries with out all this nonsense, we can continue to survive with out it, too many ‘sheeple’ out there still tho, that like being told what to do.
