Seizing Sovereignty

I had planned to write something up on the coming enslavement of multiple generations of Americans by our government. Fortunately, something much better presented itself to me this morning. Good news for Freedom and bad news for the government. A spark has been lit by the Lakota Nation, that could well result in a firestorm or a new dawn, if things play out in a peaceful manner.

WASHINGTON — The Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, have withdrawn from treaties with the United States.

"We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are free to join us,'' long-time Indian rights activist Russell Means said.

A delegation of Lakota leaders has delivered a message to the State Department, and said they were unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the federal government of the U.S., some of them more than 150 years old.

The group also visited the Bolivian, Chilean, South African and Venezuelan embassies, and would continue on their diplomatic mission and take it overseas in the coming weeks and months.

Lakota country includes parts of the states of Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming.

The new country would issue its own passports and driving licences, and living there would be tax-free - provided residents renounce their U.S. citizenship, Mr Means said.

The implications are monumental. Think of the corporatist drones who are scurrying about even now, worried that the lucrative contracts given to them by the feral federal government will now have to be renegotiated with the rightful owners. Oil and mining interests will be the least of it. Water rights will need to be addressed , as will land leases given out by the feds.

The political complexities are labyrinthine, to say the least. Best of all is the implication that many will be welcomed by the new Lakota Nation, as long as they renounce their U.S. citizenship. Organizations such as Free State Wyoming and New Hampshire should begin contacting the new nation now. Individuals might well wish to contact Lakota Nation Embassies and Consulates when they are finally set up.

It would certainly behoove members of the "freedom movement" to query the Lakota Nation as to what form of nation they will be setting up. Will it be significantly freer than the U.S.? Will non-Indians be welcomed as equals or will they be accorded 2nd class citizenship? I really cannot wait to see how this plays out. Will the feds react with violence, as has often been the case? Or will sanity and sovereignty prevail? Will we see the beginnings of a second Secessionist War? Or the birth of a new country within a country? Will the new country embrace libertarian principles or something more statist? And who will side with the Lakota, should the worst come to pass? There are so many questions to be answered here.

I cannot help but feel a sense of hope and dread where the Lakota are concerned in their endeavor to seek freedom from those who have kept them as virtual POW's for so long. I cannot speak for anyone but myself, but I wish them the best of luck as this unfolds and cannot help but wonder what the reactions will be when they begin expelling a foreign power from their lands. Hoka Hey!

UPDATE: The Lakota Freedom Delegation website is back up, after being down. It has an in depth look at the issue, from the Lakota perspective, as well as a copy of their press release, which does a lot better job of explaining things than the mass media.

The elite's government FEARS you!!!!!!

Their fear is manifested in the laws they pass. Here is a law banning what MANY of the Founders wrote is a RIGHT of citizens when a government no longer represents them:

Section 2385. Advocating overthrow of Government

Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or
teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of
overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or
the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession
thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by
force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any
such government; or
Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any
such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates,
sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed
matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity,
desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any
government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts
to do so; or
Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society,
group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the
overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or
violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any
such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes
thereof -
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than
twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by
the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five
years next following his conviction.
If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in
this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned
not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for
employment by the United States or any department or agency
thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
As used in this section, the terms ''organizes'' and
''organize'', with respect to any society, group, or assembly of
persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new
units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes,
and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons.

The federal government is allowing MILLIONS of illegals to invade our country. Corporate America is becoming increasingly more powerful and influential. Yet, according to the government of for and by the elites YOU, a citizen, have to accept whatever the government does with NO recourse other than voting...... and there is sufficient proof that shows to me voting is worthless since the entrenched power structure ensures that the emplaced elite class can not be removed.

Several Founders specifically wrote of the people's right to abolish a government when it no longer represents them.

We are forced to live under an elite's TYRANNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just thought I'd let you know that I like this post. I quoted you and linked to you on a blog I write for: BTW, I am also looking to promote this blog as it is somewhat new and would appreciate any consideration you would give to linking to

I'd like to see a map of the affected area. Unfortunately, none is found on the site. It stands to be quite a large land area.

I think all anarchists(regardless of persuasion) are waiting with baited breath to see the outcome of this new development. It's great news for freedom fighters everywhere. Great blog!
