Can you work within the system while seeking to abolish it?

As an activist who has attempted to indict two presidents, who has fought the courts for my right to travel, who was successful in getting a corrupt county clerk fired (John Arriola), who has resisted the IRS, and was even labeled as a “domestic terrorist” by the TSA, (until I sued them in court and was eventually removed from the list as a settlement offer) , It is safe to say that I have certainly paid my dues as a freedom fighter and human rights advocate. My journey has caused me and my family untold amounts of stress and physical/financial hardship.

Due to increased family responsibilities, I have decided to join the ranks of the legal profession and become “certified” as a legal assistant. As an assistant, I would not be required to take an oath, I would be able to earn money for my family, and would have a chance to learn the inner workings of the legal system, in which such information could be relayed back to my readers! To me, it is a win-win! I have decided to learn the “inside game”, for the benefit of my readers, my financial livelehood, and for my family.

Unfortunately, many of my fans do not see it this way.

Lately, I have gotten a surge of e-mails from fans calling me every name in the book such as “traitor”, “insider”, “double-agent”, ect….

However, I would like to address these sentiments. Especially since most of these people have probably never put themselves at risk or have even been in a court room themselves. It is easy to criticize, yet difficult to take action yourself.


Most libertarians come from two schools of thought.

1. Work outside of the the system, refusing to participate in it a least as possible, while seeking alternatives in order to create state obsoletion. 

2. Work inside of the current paradigm by infiltrating the system while trying to curb it’s destructive nature. 

The first category will often criticize the second and says,

” You cannot expect to infiltrate the mafia and convince them to stop terrorizing neighborhoods.”

While the second category will often criticize the first and says,

” You have to be practical. We can’t just have a utopia overnight. We have to work with the parameters that are available to us today!”

What if I were to tell you that both groups were right! The first group makes a good point. We cannot seek a cure from the same system that gave us the disease! However, the second group also makes a good point. We cannot hope to conquer a disease without first exposing ourselves to the disease itself through direct contact and participation with it.  And when this disease has been present for a long time, the body (society), make undergo shock and panic if it is abruptly removed.

Many anarchists/anarcho-capitalists point to the words and actions of famous Indian activist Mohandas Ghandi. Ghandi was a lawyer during the British occupation of India. For years, Ghandi worked tirelessly as a lawyer to argue and fight the unjust laws that the British had forced upon his people. Ghandi came to know the system that enslaved him very well.

Eventually, Ghandi made the choice to quit his job, leave behind his prestige, and became a Hindu monk/priest.  He came to the conclusion that he could better combat the system through the outside, whereas he would no longer be bound to the rules of his oath to which he had taken as a lawyer. You see, when you are licensed by any government agency, you are intentionally (or perhaps unintentionally) swearing allegiance to said government. Thus, you are bound by it’s rules, codes, statutes, ect…

This is not to say that if you were to get rid of all of your licenses that the legal system would leave you alone, however, it would make your argument and demeanor more consistent and easier to be invoked, as there would be no evidence of consent.

But, do we truly consent? And did Ghandi’s time as a lawyer make him a better or worse activist in the long run? I would say that most of us carry some type of government license………whether it be a gun permit, drivers permit, fishing license, ect… And most of us pay some form of tax.  Some of us proudly pay such things, others pay it under duress, (meaning to not do so would cause them to be jailed, so they comply under threat), ….and some…….a small few……are brave enough to completely refuse such controls, and are willing to face whatever consequences that may come their way.

Eventually, Ghandi was able to reach this level of bravery and fought the system on his own terms. But how so?  Let us look deeply into histories bravest resistors.

Ghandi. Malcom X. Martin Luther King Jr. JFK. Ron Paul. Lysander Spooner., Edward Snowden, Mulan of China…

All of these men and women have two things in common. They all openly resisted the system, and they all worked for the system at one point or another.

“Know thy enemy. Know thyself.”

This is a common strategy that is uttered throughout battlefields across the globe.  It is difficult to fight an enemy, especially one who has public support (whether it be through voluntarily or involuntary compliance.)

Think of this from the opposite perspective.  During the Occupy Wallstreet protests, many undercover police officers were commanded to join the protesters. To protest side by side with them. To act as one of them. Soon, these officers acted as spies, agent provocateurs, and saboteurs.

The enemy (The state) , has used the same tactics as the heroes listed above.

Some will say,

“Power corrupts. You cannot infiltrate the system without being corrupted yourself.”

This is an obvious concern, and has happened. If you look into the lives of Martin Luther King Jr, Ron Paul, and Malcom X, you will find some disturbing things in their bid for power. But, as in all things, we must see the greater good in their sacrifice and realize their shortcoming as human beings.

This article is not meant to encourage any type of tactic or behavior. I am not telling my readers to “run for office and infiltrate the system.”  Personally, I think the best way to defeat the system is to make it irrelevant. Stop voting, stop using their currencies, start building alternatives to their monopolized services, and just stop talking about them period.

Alas, the only way to achieve that by itself would be if we were able to convince 50% of the population to take action and put themselves in harms way.

But, the sad reality is that most of us have children, responsibilities, or other people who rely on us which make it very detrimental to our survival and to the survival of our family to openly resist the system.  For those who are brave enough and have the ability/resources/lack of family commitments to openly resist the system, …….then we should give these people our utmost support in any way we can. We should not be envious of them, nor should they scold those who choose to comply.  Since not to comply would mean certain death for many of us and our children (if you are a parent.)

If you are not in a position to openly resist, and cannot see yourself being put in a position to be able to, then that’s where infiltration and passive resistance becomes an option.

Was it a good or bad thing that a congressman such as Ron Paul vehemently argued for libertarian principles? Was it a good or bad thing that as an anarchist and as a Lawyer, Lysander Spooner helped draft dodgers to resist by representing them in court, stating that “treason was not possible since none of us signed the constitution.” Was it a good or a bad thing that Mulan joined the Chinese army disguised as a male?  While she did participate in another meaningless war, she also inspired women across the globe to empower their bodies and minds.

I say that in order for Voluntaryism to succeed, we need three groups of people to fight against a common enemy. That enemy being those that firmly believe that statism is “good” or “moral”.

1. Those who actively resist the system, regardless of consequence. Hardcore rebels.  Tax resistors. Draft Dodgers. Those who travel without a licensure, those who challenge the BAR assocation in the middle of court proceedings, and other acts of civil disobedience.

2. Passive resistors. Those who fight traffic tickets. Protest. Government employees who become whistleblowers. Politicians, such as Ron Paul who openly call for the abolition of the CIA, those who speak out and seek to politely educate others.

Regardless of your approach, whether it be one or the other, or a combination of both…………..simply getting a statist tp understand and admit that “statism is not consistent”, is a HUGE victory.

We must remember the words of Malcom X.

“Be patient with others. For there was a time when you did not know what you know today.”

Do not be “preachy”. Do not be obsessed with the negative and the “gloom and doom”. We must show our detractors that there is a more peaceful and inviting alternative to the monopolized systems that we have in place today. Once we can educate others on how to empower themselves and take control of the world around them, suddenly they become more receptive.

Sharing articles of Iraqi Children with their heads blown off, is not the best way to convince someone to be anti-war. Nor is saying, “Taxation is theft”, the best way to convince someone to become an anarcho-capitalist.  Showing statistics, facts,and positive alternatives, (such as bit-coin, private defense agencies, local currencies, and new technologies) is a far more adult and less confrontational way to talk to a statist.

Some say that I am advocating a “cult-like agenda”. No no no! I do not advocate that you go door-to-door like some jehovas witness.  Nor am I advocating for a revolution or a destruction of the state.

All I ask is that state give us the option to “opt-out” and create our own alternative means. We want choice! And we want it now! No more state sanctioned power grids. No more monopolized currencies or monopolized highways. No more unaccountable monopolized policing forces. We want across the board privatization.

Now , does privatization have its issues and concerns? Of course. But, atleast we have choices on whether or not we want to support and fund private companies. Public services do not give us such a choice, thus, they have no accountability. No competitors= No worries for them.

So in conclusion,

No matter which avenue you take to defend or expand liberty. Just be sure that you have a well thought out plan that will fulfill your personal goals and priorities.  And do not be so quick to shame the “infiltrator”, and the infiltrators should not be so quick to say that those who fight outside the system are being “unrealistic” or “utopian.”

Remember, it is the inventors who will give us alternatives to government control, not the politicians.

However, those who infiltrate the system and do their best to curb government control will give the inventor more comfort and space in order to make the obsoletion of government more possible and on a much faster timeline.

Unless we can convince 3 billion people overnight that statism is morally inconsistent, and we can come up with the technology that will allow us to thrive as a civilized species without government control……………then we must realize that “Rome was not built in a day”

So stop the in-fighting, stop the shaming, and start working together!

Just “knowing” and openly “admitting” that the state in inherently a monopolized and morally inconsistent entity is a huge personal victory. And in my opinion, that is the first step in defeating statism.

If people cannot understand why statism is bad, then why would they be interested in resisting it? And furthermore, convincing people that statism is bad is not enough, we must also have alternatives in place. Without viable alternatives then we will be forever labeled as “utopian dreamers”.

Many Voluntaryists spend so much time “hating the state”, and read so many book on why the state is evil, they forget that researching methods on how to make the state obsolete is just as or even more so important.

Knowing why Cancer is evil and destructive is important for any medical researcher. Yet, it is the cure that is more sought after. If you are always searching for reasons why something is bad, you will forever be tangled in it.

This is the essence of politics and medicine.  Doctors and politicians are paid to “treat the symptom”,…….because if they found a cure, then they’d be out of a job.  Most doctors, lawyers, and politicians are evil parasitic scum who know this. But a few of them, are working on the inside for us freedom fighters on the outside! A few brave insiders are acting as whistleblowers and are acting to push-back destructive laws in order to give the inventors/rebels enough time to muster up the resources needed to bring in obsoseletion of Big government, Big Pharma, and other forms of sanctioned criminal organizations.

Not all insiders are parasitic. And not all outsiders are 40 year olds living in their basements posting, “F*** the police” on their facebook all day.

Some insiders are acting as whistleblowers. Some outsiders are inventing new technologies that can put government and big corporations out of business and give control back to the individual.

In either case, we must organize for peace as well as those who organize for war.

P.S.- And if you are going to criticize me for working inside the system, then you could at least be consistent, as I hope you are practicing what you preach and resisting yourself! Don’t criticize my efforts when many of you have not even done anything to fight for freedom besides complaining on facebook. And to everyone else……….Thank you for the continued support!  I look forward to consulting and helping thousands of others in 2015!

Life Science: How to bear and avoid a “Scarlet Letter”

Although this website primarily deals with sovereignty in relation to “the law”, I also like to delve into mental, emotional, and spiritual sovereignty as well. Read on…..

In 1850, Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote the fiction novel,

“The Scarlet Letter” 

It is a story about a young woman in a very conservative Quaker village who ends up cheating on her husband with a priest.  Eventually the townspeople discover her infidelity and she is forced to wear the letter “A” on her dress. The “A” is bright red, (scarlet). The “A” stands for “Adultress”.

The woman is scorned by society and made into a social outcast.  Her apologies, her sorrow, her pleas for forgiveness……….all meaningless to the townspeople. In their eyes, she is a moldy piece of bread, never again to be seen as wholesome or clean. Her reputation had been ruined, therefore, she could never be trusted again. (Or so the story says).

I really enjoy the premise of this book, however, I find it so disdainfully dark and true.  Why does society do this to other human beings? How can a thousand good deeds be overshadowed by one misdeed? What makes the human mind work this way?

It is simple……….pain is more memorable than joy. When the woman/man that you love gives you a kiss, or holds your hand, it can leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside for minutes, hours, or even days.

Yet, when someone we care about lies, misleads, or hurts our feelings it can last for months, years, or even a lifetime. Perhaps it is a survival mechanism. Since pain is so unpleasant, we naturally want to avoid it at all cost or seek to destroy whatever it is that is causing us such pain.

This is why “forgiveness” is a very courageous act. To give someone a second chance is a great honor. However, forgiveness is much like “gold”. It is a rare commodity and should only be invested in those who understand their misdeed.

Currently, we are living in the “cut off” culture. The divorce rate is something like 80% in America, people switch jobs and switch partners like they are changing outfits. Someone does one bad thing, one wrong word and…….BAM! Suddenly, all contact is cut off and you are left standing in the dark wondering what the hell just happened. No explanation, no chance to make amends……..zilch!

Such people who adopt this process of cutting people off cold turkey are often praised for their “courage”.  I, on the other hand, see it differently.  When someone hurts you, you owe it to the rest of society to tell that person “why” you are letting them go, so they can understand their mistake, it’s ramifications, and hopefully never do it again..

If the bank-robber is punished, is it not good? Yes………but only if the the captors explain to him WHY he is being punished. In this way, he can reflect on his mistake while locked away in his solitude, and perhaps when his incarceration is completed, he can re-enter the world with a new sense of perspective.

If the bank-robber is arrested and not told “why”. He will sit in his jail cell racking his brain………….”Is it because I did this?,  “Is it because I did that?” …….”Why am I here?”.

Obviously, no one is truly obligated to give an explanation as to “why” they are cutting someone off. But, from a karmic perspective, I see it as a great service to humanity.

Furthermore, I am not a fan of apologies. “I’m sorry”. “Forgive me”. Rather, I prefer “corrective actions”. When someone apologizes and then immediately follows up with “solutions” and “corrective actions”, then you should oblige such a person. Especially if it is his first offense or a rare occurrence.

When I make a mistake, and I truly feel the regret of my actions, I own up to it, apologize, then seek a remedy through action. If there is no corrective action, then perhaps the misdeed is just to great to be corrected, or the bond between you and the victim is just too far removed. Regardless, an effort to make amends is always a good sign that the abuser is atleast regretful of his misdeed.

If a boy carelessly threw a baseball across the street, breaking your window, would you not be angry? Of course you would! If the boy apologized, would it do some good in soothing your anger? Perhaps slightly. What if the boy apologized, and then rode his bike to the store and showed up at your house with a new window and offered to install it for you?  Obviously the second action shows that the boy has truly learned the weight of his actions and is seeking a remedy.

A mere “apology” only sets the tone.

This brings me back to the “Scarlet Letter”.  Many of us carry such letters. Scars from our past that continue to haunt us, that can potentially ruin our future relationships.  Take Mike Tyson for example.  At the age of 44, Mr. Tyson is a completely new man. He is now married, a devout Muslim, publically speaks about his troubled past, and reaches out to his children and the rest of his community.

Mr. Tyson was newly married just a few years back. Upon marrying this woman, he had to reluctantly tell her of his past misdeeds. The lying, the violence, the abuse, prison sentences, drug addictions, his past relationships……………a man with a troubled past is always finding himself in confession when meeting new people.

In spite of this known fact, if two newly connected spirits meet, and the meeting is wholesome, the other partner will not scorn the other’s “baggage”, but will instead help them “unpack” it.  However, understandably…….this requires much effort on behalf of the other partner with little to no baggage.

It’s truly a sad curse. This is why young people should quickly realize that many of their actions can be attached to them for a lifetime.  Fatherly and motherly involvement is paramount. Forget about providing financially for a moment……sure financial support is important, but giving children the life skills that they need to become emotionally, physically, spiritually, and mentally independent/stable is far more important. One bad choice can alter the course of someone’s life forever.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just take a magic eraser and wash away the past? Wouldn’t it be nice if we could wipe our memories clean of such misdeeds so that we wouldn’t have to tell others and we wouldn’t be lying at the same time?

Some do enter into new relationships without mentioning their past. However, even if the person is successful in hiding their past sins, the knowledge of it will always rest with them and their god. There is no escape…….

So what is the remedy to the “Scarlet Letter”.  Well, that’s a long story that requires a total revamping of your reputation that can take years to rebuild. Like the old saying goes,

“A building can take years to build, but only seconds to tear down.”

The other solution is “prevention”. Prevention is a million times more cost-effective than a cure.  You see ladies and gentlemen………life is experimental. Especially the first three decades of our lives. This is when humans experiment more than any other time in their lives. However, around the age of 30, most of us have enough experience in life to avoid the common pitfalls that plague most relationships. Whether or not we listen to this intuition is another topic.

Relationships are no different than a science experiment. And they are no different than taking care of a shared possession. Like a family car…….everyone uses it, therefore all must maintain it.

Life is a science. A science that only be mastered through great initial failure.  Often times we hurt others because of our fears that they will hurt us first, if we don’t first hurt them.  These people are called, “Self-Saboteurs”. I have been guilty of it myself.  We have been mistreated and stabbed on so many occasions, that good things, and good people actually scare us!  It’s really quite silly, when you consider that the Earth consists of billions of people. And I truly believe that most people are well intended…….and I know this from my own experimentation with friendships.

Being “outgoing” is a social experiment that teaches you about yourself and other human beings. A relationship that is born out of such experiments graduates to “Phase II” trials. If Phase II trials prove to be successful, then we enter into “Marriage”, i.e. “Successful Discovery”. And “Divorce” becomes the prognosis of the newly found discovery when/if the specimens (lovers) are left in unsanitary conditions for a prolonged period of time.

Remember, daily Hygiene is important in both our personal health and our relationships. Maintenance on a car is no different than maintaining anything else. Negligence is the root of all unhappiness. Never be careless with the hearts of others. The damage you leave on others is a reflection of the condition of your own heart.

I myself have my own set of “Scarlet Letters”, from many different letters of the alphabet..  As I am sure that many of my readers also have. Very few of us are without controversy. And those who are without such controversy have most likely experienced very little in life or have an incredible innate maturity that is rare indeed, and should thus be very thankful.

For those who are suffering with regret, despair, and long for the relationships that have crumbled at their feet, I heed these words to you….

“Seek this person out. Avoid lengthy words. Take action to make amends. If you are not successful, atone for your sins by replacing your misdeed with two good deeds towards your fellow man, and be sure that such deeds are equal in weight to the misdeed that you committed. “

“Redemption” is not “granted”, it is earned……through a lengthy process.

At the age of 27, I have burned many bridges, often prematurely and without second thought.  Alas, I am reaching a new state of realization. A state of realization that has told me that “Time is a commodity”. I no longer wish to waste time. Hurting others with my negligence, with my nonchalant attitude, nor hurting myself with potential regret.

Relationships are a huge responsibility that require much practice. Think of holding someone’s heart like holding a gun. In the hands of a trained expert, it can be used to protect many lives. In the hands of a negligent nincompoop, lives can be forever lost and/or altered.

So in the meantime, if you are not well-trained, practice by serving, traveling, communicating, and most importantly ….LISTENING.

Narcissism, egotism, and negligence are the tallest fences that separate you from peace and happiness. Time can reveal and heal all things. It only takes a little effort…..







Why 501(C) churches are Evil: Bible Prophecy- Socialism

“Why most Churches are actually working for the Government”
by R. Stroud, 2014

(If you hate reading, I have included a video link at the end of this article to watch instead, although this article is more detailed)

In some of my earlier writings, I made it aware that the mark of the beast, “666″ was found in the United States Federal Code book, “Title 42 section 666″. Hinting that no one could buy, sell, or work in America with a social security number, and that we, the people, are children of the government. The Hindu faith and other cultures also make references to the “six shapes”, or “six points”.  However, I will focus on Biblical insight, since it is more relevant in American culture.

When we look at “Genesis chapter 47″ , some compelling insights into the strategies of the elite are made aware and why most priests and Churches are actually working for the government!

Firstly, I must note, that I do not identify as a Christian (Even though I have great respect for many of it’s tenants) .  Therefore my research is non-bias. I see the Christian religion just as any other religion.  They all contain “fragmented” truths, coupled with cultural practices, future predictions, and allegorical stories designed to teach lessons to it’s readers. Beyond this explanation, regarding religious philosophy, it is all based on personal preference and opinion…..

Regardless of your views on the Bible, if you live in America, or any other place where Christianity is the dominant religion, then you had better study the Bible! Whether you consider the Christian faith to be thine enemy or thine friend, remember the old adage,

“Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer”

The court system and the elite have used and will continue to use the Bible and it’s wide-spread support in a perverted way. This is the basis of most religions anyway. Entice its users with a dose of wisdom, while promoting an agenda. It is no secret that modern law, in western countries are closely linked to the Christian Bible. To this day, the Vatican and the “City” (The economic district in the UK) still call the shots from behind the scenes. A little research will show that treaties and history points towards the income tax and totalitarian control being implemented by both, through it’s vessel, the United States of America.

Let us take a look at “Genesis chapter 47″, lets see if you guys can see the references to taxation, socialism, elitism, inflation, ect….


13 And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine.

14 And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh’s house.

15 And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth.

16 And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.

17 And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.

18 When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:

19 Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.

20 And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh’s.

21 And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.

22 Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.

23 Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you this day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye shall sow the land.

24 And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones.

25 And they said, Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh’s servants.

26 And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part, except the land of the priests only, which became not Pharaoh’s.

In this story, there is many overlapping scenarios that we can relate to today. In this story, monopolized currencies (money), has “failed” and has become useless and worthless. Bartering has become the preferred choice of trade. A famine strikes the farmers. The Pharaoh is displeased. The farmers are instructed that they can be saved from famine if they sell their land and their cattle if they agree to trade them for bread in order to get them through the drought.

The farmers comply and ultimately agree to give up their property in exchange for a little food. In essence, give up their freedom to produce for themselves in exchange for a short-term immediate relief. After the famine dissipates, the farmers are told that the Pharaoh will provide them with seeds to plow on the lands, in exchange for them agreeing to become “citizens” (slaves), and they must also agree to hand over 1/5 of their harvest to the Pharaoh whenever he demands it.

If you notice in this story, the Priests are exempt from selling their land or paying the 1/5 harvest requirement.  In these days, the priests were a part of the master-class as they are today! Doctors, lawyers, priests, ….they are not subject to the same abuse.  Remember, most churches today are under the “501 (C) “ agreement. The government will not collect taxes from them, but in return they cannot speak illy of the government.

This is why you do not see many pastors or priests talking about the NDAA, patriot act, federal reserve, ect………because they have accepted the ” 501 (C) “ agreement. Think of mega-million preachers like ‘Joel Osteen”. He makes millions to give motivational speeches, yet he hardly even mentions the Bible and will never give an opinion on the government; because he is not allowed! He takes orders from government, not his chosen god.

However, a few brave clergymen do exist in the underground who refuse to accept the “501(c)”, and who speak bravely as I am speaking now.  Yet, if they are caught, they will be severely punished.  (Now lets go back to Genesis 47)  —-(Don’t hate the player, hate the game)


The farmers cheered for joy, thinking that they are saved from the famine…..

” Horah! The Pharaoh has saved us from starvation!”

Or has he?

This reminds me of the current welfare system in the united states.  Let’s say, you get paid 10$ per hour. Not bad huh? But then you have to pay an income tax, then an SSN tax, a medicare tax, a gasoline tax, a sales tax, property tax, renew your license, renew your tags and stickers, pay your electric bill to the government plus taxes, pay your water bill to the government plus taxes, obtain a fishing license, obtain a marriage license, a gun license,  pay for your state mandated car insurance, your cell phone bill, your federal student loans……….ect

Soon, you realize that you are actually making about 2.50$ per hour.  On top of that, let’s say that you lose your job. You decide to sign up for unemployment benefits and food stamps.  However, if you do so, then you agree to let the government monitor your bank account. If they see that you are making any extra money outside of your “benefits” you could possibly be arrested for “fraud”. Therefore, many people choose to stay on welfare, because working a minimum wage job will actually earn them less! They are encouraged to stay in a slave mentality.

And let’s look at the income tax.  The average american earns about 1,000,000 dollars in his or her lifetime. Let’s say that 50% of that is removed due to income taxes (excluding all other taxes).  That’s 500K ! That money could have went towards college, your kids, food, ect…..

I know what you are thinking, “But income taxes pay for roads, courts, highways, and other services we use everyday.”

According to the congressional “Grace Commission”, less than 1% of income taxes goes towards infrastructure or anything that we can actually see. Most of it goes to pay off interest to the federal reserve and whatever is left over is allocated to “Nation Defense”. (AKA- THE WAR MACHINE).  That’s why the income tax is often called, “The war tax”.

This is why I label myself as an anarcho-capitalist. I believe that no good or service should be monopolized. Currencies, roads, defense, policing agencies, ………all of them should be open to competition.  Without competing services, then there will be no accountability. (Google anarcho-capitalism or Voluntaryism or study my page “Why Voluntaryism” 

All in all, it’s indentured servitude. Even those who get on welfare are still making the system money. The Birth Certificate and the SSN are actually “bank accounts”. Collateral, if you will….for the elite. Each SSN and each Birth Certificate contain “cussip numbers” at the bottom. Each certificate represents “human energy” that can be used to secure loans from the IMF (International monetary Fund).

(If you are interested in this topic, see my page “Human Farming”)

In the story from Genesis 47, the money has become useless…..this signifies a “crash”, which is likely to happen to the US dollar since it is monopolized and is no longer backed by anything. It is also printed in unlimited quantities through a process called “Quantitative Easing.”, which severely devalues its purchasing power.

The bible, in the old testament, seems to aggressively support slavery.  However, the new testament makes references as well.

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear.  Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ.  (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)

When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished.  If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.  (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)

Yet, as the New testament came to be, a Character by the name of “Yeshua” or “Jesus”, comes into the picture who exhibits a very “anarchist” or “anti-authority” persona by refusing to carry government money, refusing to enter a plea in the court of Rome, refusing citizenship, and even going so far as to say,..

” Do not put your trust in Kings or Princes”. –  Yeshua

These sentiments are agreed with by earlier religious figures such as the “Buddha” or “Lao Tzu” who made similar standings. Some say that during Jesus’s (Yeshua)  “lost years” in the Bible, that he was actually studying ancient Egyptian religions and/or Buddhism. (Since Buddha was born 500 years prior). Alas, this is a huge debate for another time…..

(If you want to read more about anarchists in religion , click the links below)

(Was Jesus “anti-authority” rebel?) click here 

So please, keep an open mind……… study the great religions of the past. Try to discern from the elements of control that are scattered throughout religion and try to see the gems of beauty that can be found within them all.  Even though Islam has been shunned heavily in American media, the Quran still contains much wisdom once you get past the violent passages…….the same goes for the Bible.

I have read the Koran, The Tao Te Ching, The Talmud, the Bible, the Tibetan Book of the dead, …… certain passages from all of these books have warmed my heart, while other passages made me cringe.

Anything written by human hands will forever contain flaws. (Have you noticed the grammar errors in this article yet? ;)

In conclusion,

Listen to your elders. Study the words of past mystics. Do not be so quick to condemn the words of the old. Even you find yourself in disagreement, or perhaps some of their claims have been disproven…..some truths are everlasting! Such as

“Do unto other as you would have them do unto yourself.”

These words were both uttered by both Yeshua and the Buddha!

There is more that unites us than divides us. Our desire to be free from arbitrary control should be one of those qualities that unites us! We don’t need a revolution! We need an evolution…….not to tear down, but to build anew. To make a new way…..a better way, while never forgetting the time honored lessons from our common human ancestors.  Or as my grandma would say,

“Been there done that! I tried to tell ya!”

Snowden was Right!: Facebook & Youtube are Spy Programs

( Iam writing this article in one setting with little to no editing, so I apologize in advance. A FOIA request shows that a facebook post from 2012 that I made in an online debate angered the welfare whores who live off taxation, at the FBI. I consider it a badge of honor. The elite and their imperialism make my skin crawl, and it gives me great pleasure to know that they are reading, and hopefully learning….perhaps my words will reverse their wicked tendencies. )

Yesterday, I received a package from the FBI. A little over a year ago, I sent in a FOIA request to the FBI and CIA. The CIA quickly sent me a rejection letter stating that they could not “confirm or deny” that they had any records to show me under the FOIA act requirements, I never did hear back from the FBI, until now….

Why would I ask for such a request? Let me get you up to speed if you aren’t familiar with my work.

For the last three years I have been very politically active. I joined the right to travel movement, campaigned for Ron Paul, transitioned into the Voluntaryism school of thought, and even attempted to prosecute Ben Bernanke, Both Bushes, Obama, Clinton, and Eric Holder for racketeering and other crimes against humanity. I also sent a letter to “John Walker Lindh”, (an American who was accused of treason and was held at gitmo) . In this letter, I simply stated that I did not think he was a terrorist and I thought it was ironic that he was being tortured and held for supporting the Taliban when the United States government has frequently armed militants, drug cartels, and other forms of terrorism themselves.  I do not necessarily support Lindh’s plight, but considering that he never fired a bullet, and never harmed anyone, he was simply cooking meals for the taliban and offering support did not justify his torture and indefinite detainment, especially when you consider the hypocritical support of terrorism by way of the US government.

Nothing controversial. Nothing violent.  I never called for the assassination of any person or persons.

On top of all of this , I have started this website, which promotes educational tools which allow the layman to stand a fighting chance against the conflicting interests of the court system.

Amongst all of this chaos, I was also involved in an armed march on the Tennessee State Captiol where me and a ragtag group of activist called for the disassemble of the federal government and for the repealment of the patriot act, NDAA, and for all Tennessee based military personnel to be returned home.  Sometime after, I landed a job at an airplane repair/maintenance corporation. During my tenor working at Embraer, I was constantly ridiculed.

Since most of the employees there were former military personal, they labeled me as a “muslim lover”, a “tax cheat”, and would say things like, “If you don’t like our country then leave!”.  Even though I never discussed politics at work, some nosy co-worker found me on the internet and began to spread the word that I was , “Not a real American.”  I was eventually unlawfully fired and let go under false pretenses due to my political activities.

( That protest on the capital can be seen here)

(They lied and said I was being laid off due to lack of work, even though my performance records showed that I was a great employee and whereas after my departure from the company, overtime was frequently given out. It was a conspiracy)

You can read more about that incident here http://sovereigntactics.org/?p=437

For two years, harassment from local law enforcement and FBI agents where frequent. Visits to my home, my places of employment, being followed on the streets, being surrounded by a group of officers for simple traffic stops. It was becoming too much. That’s when Nick Beres from News Channel 5 came to my home and showed me the documents, which stated that I was on a terror watch list! And that’s the real reason why I lost my job! No trial. No explanations. Nothing! I was a marked man! Anytime I tried to apply for a new job, my background failed. I couldnt understand it. I had no warrants, no arrests, nothing. Now it was all making sense.

Unfortunately, the interview with Nick Beres, although filmed, was never broadcasted. Nick called me and told me that the network didn’t like the story. However, I secretly recorded our conversation and leaked the interview on youtube. It can be found by youtube search, “Randy Stroud news 5″. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzqk3-zTjyQ  (Click here to see that)

(In the interview, Nick Beres kept trying to label a sovereign citizen. Which I resent. It’s an oxymoron statement, and I don’t associate with any organization. He also discussed the letter that I sent to Eric Holder in my attempt to criminally prosecute corrupt government officials. That letter can be found in my book, “The Red Pill”, the letter to Mr. Lindh can also be found there. I have nothing to hide.)

So I pursued a lawsuit against the TSA (whom worked in tandem with my former employer to have me fired) for slander and libel. Being put on such a list ruined my reputation and made life very difficult for my family, as they too were harassed by law enforcement. (guilty by association right?)

During these lawsuit proceedings, I had a friend who worked in an HR department run a federal background check on me.  The background took a little longer than normal, but it came back clean! A few weeks I applied for a job as a pharmacy technician, and sure enough, I passed their background check too! The TSA had taken me off the Terror Watchlist in order to avoid my lawsuit, which contained some very hard hitting language, which would have blew things wide open in the media!

After discovering that my background was now clean, and after going through some personal struggles in my life, I decided to take a break from activism and focus on my family, friends, and spiritual endeavors.

But then I get this package from the FBI. The report makes reference to my youtube videos where I ask the FBI to apologize to me and they even directly quote one of my facebook posts. The report was based around a comment I made two years ago on facebook.

” Iam an american. But, I hate imperialism. I want all imperialists to die. I just wish all nations would leave eachother alone in peace. I am ashamed of my country.”

Apparently this post pissed off the elite and they came after me hard. In the report, they made a reference to the letter I sent to John Walker Lindh, or maybe it was the letter I sent to Eric Holder, the Former US attorney general at the time. I was seeking his aide to prosecute Obama, clinton, the Bush family, Ben Bernanke, and a few others.  I’m not sure because the documents “blank” the reference out.  The report states, “Stroud asked the FBI if the investigations where in reference to the letter he sent to————–”. Then it’s blank. Since my telephone conversation with the Memphis FBI took place over two years ago, I can’t quite recall the entire conversation.

I called them after agents showed up at my work. I NEVER asked them to come to my work as they claim in the report. That’s a complete lie. In the report, they claim that they never ID’s themselves, and I am here to tell you that that too is a lie! Specifically, Joe Craig, who is assumed to be in charge of my FBI, since during all of my altercations with the FBI, he was the only one who would ID himself, although the partners he brought with him never would. After his visit to my former job at Under-Armour, my other co-workers told me in confidence that the agents had alot more to say than what is told in this report. They asked questions like, “Who does he associate with?”, “Has he ever made reference to bombs?”, “Does he do any charity work?” .  After that incident, my fellow co-workers became frightened of me and thought I was involved with Al-Qaeda or some other quasi-muslim associated media propagated terror group.

(Which is interesting because I am a self-described agnostic Taoist and have no interest in Islam. I guess living in the south and having the word “sovereignty” written in arabic as a tattoo, while being outspoken against the wars automatically makes you a fundamentalist muslim sympathizer huh? lol….silly brainwashed tools!)

This report also claims that they only visited me once, and the investigation ended shortly after they came to my work for the first time. This was in 2012.  However, the report stated, “Several blank pages are included in this package to signify entire pages of deleted classified information.”

Which sounds about right, because the abuse did not stop in 2012. In 2013 and in the early months of 2014, more harassment from the FBI and the local police continued.  It is only after I initiated a lawsuit that I have been left alone . (Pictures of the documents will be included at the end of this article. Some sections will be blanked out in blue to protect my address).

Sometimes I feel like becoming a recluse and calling it quits in regards to my activism. Just find myself a beautiful wife, get a regular job, and just live a private life. Anytime my name is “googled” many people become afraid and misunderstand my plight. I should not be feared. My only goal has been explicit………I simply want to live in a world that is operated under self-governance. I do not want to be mugged under the guise of “taxation” in order to pay for the government’s wars, monopolized services and their targeted killings.

So remember kids, whatever you say or do on the internet………Big Brother is watching. But do not be afraid, atleast we know that they are reading our statements. Perhaps they will be educated. I am delighted to know that some snot-nosed pimply faced FBI agent is being forced to read all of my posts about Anarcho-Capitalism, Free-markets, Voluntaryism, and self-ownership. Maybe he will wake up and quit his job and join the ranks of us fellow liberty lovers.

As for me……..I sure could a vacation from all of this. Anyone have a plane ticket to Bangkok or Bora Bora?








I proudly live life with my guard down. I’d gladly take a thousands arrows to the heart for just one honest moment of serenity. Sorrow signifies defeat. Defeat signifies effort. Effort pushes you towards a goal. Being afraid to lose means you’re not brave enough to win! So go ahead….Bring it on “life”. I’m giving myself a 900th chance. I’ll never give up in my struggle for personal liberty.

Don’t Fight the Elite. For they are becoming Obsolete.


( Me giving a speech at legislative plaza about the Federal Reserve system, the IMF, and demonopolization of services; circa 2011)


” It’s not about changing the world. It’s about doing our best to leave the world the way it is. It’s about respecting the will of others while believing in your own.” –  Naked Snake


This is going to be a very intimate post, so be prepared.

For over a decade now, I have been fighting a fruitless war against what I had perceived to be “winnable”.  I had made myself into a self-chosen martyr.  Since the age of 14 I have carried this world upon my shoulders without anyone really noticing it.  Around the age of 14, I began to get heavily involved in the martial arts in order to protect my mother and my sister. Protect them from what? Well, being a white kid in East Nashville 15 years ago was a little different than it is today.  And having a father who would get into physical confrontations with my mother didn’t help either.

At the age of 14 I embarked on the path of a self-chosen protector for humanity. At first I primarily relied on my martial arts to serve humanity. I fought in the ring against feared opponents, I defended my school mates from bullies, defended my mother, and even had a brief stint trying to work with the police to clean up the streets of Nashville by linking up with various Para-Police/Para-military groups. Imagine that! Randy Stroud working with the authorities!

After sustaining many injuries from years of training and fighting, I began to take the cerebral approach. Using my mind to fight the evils of the world. I took on the establishment. And I did it primarily alone. I had a few allies along the way. Nathan, Joey, Rosselleni, and a few others; yet their commitment waned in due time.  Yet, I was always there, looking for the next corrupt asshole to take down.

First it was John Arriola, then it Officer Ruiz, then it was Obama, Bush, Clinton, and Bernanke.  I tried to sue and prosecute them all. At one point, I even tried to contact the awlaki family to find out the truth behind the assassinations of both the US citizens; father-son pair; who were coldly droned by the Obama administration without even so much as a trial to determine whether or not they were actually terrorists.

I was in deep waters…….eventually I had reached a point that every man in the fight against light vs darkness reaches.  …..I knew too much.

Kidnappings from the FBI, harassment from co-workers, being put on watchlists, being betrayed by the love of your life,  Being unlawfully discharged from your job, being called “crazy”……….. was it all worth it?  Was it really? Did I deserve to be put on such a witch hunt?  (Let us remember that MLK was also put on various watchlists)

I was bitter.  Here I was, a young man, who had literally given everything for humanity.  I had sacrificed my relationships, my family, my job, everything.  Was I really that bad of a person? I mean, even in my free-time I volunteered to teach at-risk children the art of Boxing.   Did the government really have a right to declare me a terrorist just for asking for tough questions?  It seemed like the Egyptians loved me more, as I often wrote newsletters in Arabic, discussing how the Obama and Bush administrations had pretty much made Egypt into a proxy-controlled, puppet government for so many years. (A psychic recently told me that I was a well respected Egpytian Priest for the sun god RA in a past life. Who knows?)

I often got emails from Egyptians and other Americans who were aware of my work in other states across the country. E-mails that would say things like, “We need more people like you” , “You are my hero”.   Although reading these messages brought me great joy, as I looked around in my physical world, the support was much smaller.  Perhaps living in a conservative state made things worse. When people learned the truth about me, I was told , “If you don’t love America, then get the hell out.” 

On July 4th of 2013, everything came to a head.  I lead a small group to march on the offices of Bill Haslam at the state capital.  I stood in solidarity with Adam Kokesh, as he organized the “March on every capital day, armed march”.   Me and small rag-tag group showed up on the capital steps, some armed, some not.  The armed march wasn’t meant to be violent, just a show of our 2nd amendment support, to keep the powers at be in check. As we approached the stairs, there was a SWAT team waiting on us.  On the way to the event, we were pulled over by a traffic cop, he tried to question us without cause, yet I used “legalese” to get the officer to let us go (see youtube- july 4th no license). After the march, me and my friend Nathan were followed all around Nashville in an unmarked car.

Fast forward a year later….

Since then, I have undergone kidnapping, harassment, and threats from both the US government and hyper-patriotic American citizens.

I still couldn’t understand why I was so hated.  US imperialism; 900 bases in 130 countries. The Patriot Act, the NDAA, HR 347, endless global wars, inside jobs……………I was fighting against all of this. Not for my own pleasure, but because it was the right thing to do! My conscience left me no choice but to experiment on this path.

Here I am now, November 6th, 2014…… I look down at my hands, as I type this article. What have I been left with? I wrote a few books, had some interesting experiences, many of which were caught on tape…….. yet all in all, I had lost so much. ….now I have my final battle, a lawsuit with the TSA. I don’t want their dirty blood money. I just want a public apology for their slanderous label of “terrorist”, for which they eventually removed, yet the damage has already been done.

I don’t want anyone to go through what I went through. I made the cardinal sin that Martin Luther King Jr warned us all of when it comes to political activism….

” We must organize for peace, as well as those who organize for war.”

or let us look at the example of Ghandi, who was once a lawyer, and decided that fighting inside the system was pointless and rigged. He left his job and became a monk, to fight this spiritual war on HIS TERMS! Yet, he remained organized. The system can only be defeated once we stop giving our energies and attention to it.

I had always been a “lone-wolf”, taking on the world by myself, and I paid the ultimate price. My delivery for the message of liberty was brought about all wrong. I was misunderstood , yet my heart and my intentions were always pure.

Through these stresses and tribulations, I eventually reached a boiling point. Before I had taken on this path of “martyrdom”, what was I doing?  I was meditating, getting to know my spirit through Qigong, astrological studies, and intense physical training. I was happier then. I had gotten way off track…..

Then I met an “Earth Dragon” who was going through her own inner battles, yet she was sympathetic to my cause.  This Earth-Dragon was also at a cross-roads in her life. Where she was stuck between her old life and a new one that she so craved.  I too was at that same point. And here I am, deciding on where to go. Somehow, seeing another person go through an extraordinary battle has a way of putting things into perspective. It brings a sense of comradery.

So many of you guys who are loyal to my efforts, and follow this website have brought me great joy. So many people have used my example to fight corruption in their own hometowns. I get e-mails everyday from people who thank me for educating them on Sui Juris , sovereign law tactics.  Everyday they tell me of both their victories and their losses………….. sometimes there is glory in fighting, but more often than not, it’s painful and messy, as I have also gotten my share of hate mail from neo-conservatives and radical liberals.

Me, my brother, Nathan, Joey, Bunmi,Gulliver, ………. we all fought a long bloody battle to free ourselves from nations, system, borders, and monopolized ideologies.  Liberty. That’s all we wanted. Yet, no matter how much we believed, no matter how much we sacrificed, the only liberty we found, was on the inside. Trapped within those limits. The wins in court, the successful protests, they are all meaningless if the culture as a whole cannot wake up to the realities of this world.

I do not know where I will go from here.  But I do know this, at some point, I do crave a sense of “normalcy”.  I have been on this journey for ten years.  And in some capacity, I will also be a defender of freedom and liberty. Yet, I can feel my spirit telling me that a new journey is ahead of me. One that does not involve external forces, but rather one that explores the last frontier………..the unlimited depths of my own spiritual essence.

I would like to share that journey with a kindred spirit/soul mate, call it what you will. But I suppose I having expectations can be dangerous for the mind, so I stay humble, living for each moment, being thankful for every smiling face that comes across my path.

Where I go from here is still in question.  But, I can sense that my maturity levels have greatly increased.  It’s not about fighting “hard”, it’s about living consciously and being strategic with each breath that we take.  The only true liberty that exists is within our own perspectives and the joy that we can bring to others.  Be charitable. Be philanthropic.  Do these things and life will become very meaningful for you.

Perhaps this world isn’t quite ready for the message of Voluntaryism.  You can’t force it.  You can’t fight the “times” that we live in. You cannot fight the culture that dominates. You have to be patient.  But thanks to advancements in logic, philosophy, and technology, these monopolized powers will soon find themselves on the run, obsolete. I will have the last laugh. My work, largely is done…. now society must catch up and continue on it’s own course. The elite are like a bad cold, they must run their course before we are cured of them.

I want a new lease on life.  I don’t want to spend what little youth I have left fighting and giving my energy to a monolithic empire. They can’t have my time anymore! I know one day they will become obsolete. They shall destroy themselves through the knowledge that has been presented. I have done my part.  We all must do our part.  But do not count me out, Randy Stroud is like a shadow, even when you think he has been beaten, even when you think he is gone, he is still there, watching, waiting, and protecting the defenseless.

I cannot play the role of “victim” anymore.  No one forced me on this path, I chose it, and it’s my burden to bear.  I was naive and didn’t plan well. It’s actually funny now looking back on my idealism….

I have to take a detour and rediscover myself.  But do not fear, all of you will see me again. I guarantee this. All of you are my friends. Whether it be in this life or the next, I am not going anywhere. Don’t believe the hype, they haven’t destroyed me. I am not sad anymore, for anger is more productive than sorrow. Although anger is leaving me too. I accept the beauty alongside the ugliness.  I am motivated to live peacefully and live out my days with my unfound partner in life…….. a new future is coming for all of us, a new world for all of us to live in.  Your body, and your soul are your own, to do with as you believe. I am not leaving. If you guys find yourself in harm’s way, I am always available for consultation. This isn’t the end, it’s the beginning.

You are not a citizen, you are not anyone’s property.  Someday, me and my kindred will be able to tell you all of this personally.

Until then…..

See you on the dark side of the moon.

Ink-Um-Mind: Young Blogger Sees past the Surface World

Ink-Um-Mind: New Blog explores freedom and Consciousness

    Hello loyal readers. Today I will be taking the time to analyze my recent encounter with a fairly young blog/website that goes by the name of “Ink-Um-Mind”. Its’ content is very enjoyable and contains a lot of insight the macro/micro inner workings of the mind, body, psychic/spirit, and structures of society. In fact the website’s headlining message states:

          “Inner Conscious feedom and insight; a truth seekers hub.”

I came across this website indirectly by communicating with the owner after seeing her make some very interesting posts about the alternative currency, “Bitcoin” on a social networking platform. Anyone who is talking about “alternatives” that challenge the monopolized Federal Reserve System instantly becomes a noteworthy person in my network of allies. After a short, yet interesting dialogue, I was referred to her site and was very impressed with the website’s content.

The blog/website focuses on the metaphysical approach towards self-awareness, self-understanding, artistic expressions through a showcasing of art/paintings/writings, and overall “clean living” (i.e. practicing healthy habits while being conscious of your daily choices).

The blogger has a significant interest in “dream interpretation” as she recounts a series of lucid dreams in which she discovers new sides of her consciousness that she may/or may not have been aware of during her waking moments throughout the day. In one article, the author states that one of her dreams literally “saved” her life. A very interesting read if I do say so myself.

This is very significant for me, since I too enjoy keeping a log of my dreams.  Anytime that I have a dream that includes pronounced or long lasting images/events, I instantly begin researching my “dream dictionary” to help me decipher my experience. I have a personal belief, that I believe that the owner of “Ink-Um-Mind” most likely also shares, is that our dreams are literally the “house keepers” of our spirits.

What do I mean by “house-keepers” of our spirits. I believe that when an organism has a dream, especially one that leaves a lasting impression even after awaking from a slumber, is the mind’s way of trying to defragment, decipher, and deprogram the dead chi, bad karma, dark energy, or overall spiritual confusion that is holding us back from achieving a true understanding of the “self”.  A dream about laying in a meadow on a sunny day laden with a crowd of turtles and gray snakes may seem like a meaningless dream to many. But for me, this dream was a personal experience that I had which was anything but meaningless. After must research, this dream showed me that I was suffering from a classic case of “Fork in the road syndrome”. In laymen’s terms, I was conflicted.

I knew that I was conflicted deep down, yet I was able to repress such feelings during my waking hours, yet when we sleep, our mind lets it’s guard down and all energies, both good and bad freely flow. So, if you are lucky enough, or perhaps unlucky enough, to be romantically co-habitating (sleeping next to) a significant other, be sure that such a person who is laying next to you truly loves you, because believe it or not, …..positive and negative energies are contagious. Even more so when we are asleep since our aura’s guard is down. This is why I myself like to decorate my room with talismans, paintings and messages with positive auras to give me more peace of mind as I try to enter into my nightly slumber.

Enough about my inner ramblings…… Back to “Ink-Um-Mind”. Another thing that I noticed about this blog was the prevalence of an “Anti-Toxicity” theme. Whether it be emotionally, spiritually, or physically in the form of taking care of our physical vessel. The owner promotes the idea of avoiding Genetically Modified Organisms and  even has an article written which mentions how to detox the body both physically and from the perspective of having a tainted aura that has absorbed a lot of negativity. The blog also offers an online store-front which sales 100% all natural organic grade beauty/health products. I believe that such activism and education that leans towards self-awareness and taking care of your physical vessel in extremely important in the consumerism age that we live in.

When it comes to GMO’s and the overall idea of “what you put in, is what you get out” seems like common sense, yet it is something that is not quite promoted on a larger scale as I’d like to see when it comes to diet, especially in the United States. Your body requires food, water, and positive relationships in order to thrive. If your food, water, and relationships contain toxic matters, then guess what? Eventually your essence will absorb such toxins until you yourself become the object of avoidance to all of those who are clean and righteous in their bodies and minds.

When I discovered this website, I was happy to see the promotion of all-natural beauty products that are free from liver killing toxins. Even though I myself am a male, and I do not wear any make-up, the storefront still offers many creams/lotions that non-makeup wearers could still greatly benefit from. After seeing the products I emailed my sister, since I am trying to get her on the “au natural’ bandwagon when it comes to beauty products. Say goodbye to those lame “Mary-Kay” or “Clinique” products which appear to rely more on celebrity marketing rather than anything else. (atleast in my opinion).

My twin sister and many of my female relatives do wear make-up that is often times made with synthetic materials. Materials which contain identical substances that could also be matched up with the ingredient labels found on a bottle of Jet-Fuel. The skin/dermis, is the body’s largest organ. It acts as a barrier and as an “expellant” that pushes out toxins through exfoliation and sweat. When you put toxic products on your skin, your skins digests it just as your stomach does.  Since the make-up/skin care industry is essentially a billion-dollar industry which heavily relies on celebrity endorsements and mind-controlling media campaigns, people rarely care about the ingredients.

The products found on this blog offer everything from eye-liner to facial creams which can give consumers the ability to enhance their features with the confidence that they are not putting toxic materials on their skin. A word of caution to my friends who are on the great spiritual quest of self-knowledge and discovery, if you fill your body with toxins, those toxins eventually reach the brain, and the brain being the master CPU of thought processing, you can only imagine the dire consequences that having a toxic body will have on your ability to perform meditation or simple everyday tasks that require the use of logic and foreseeability.

For my loyal fans of Sovereigntactics.Org, you will be happy to know that the owner of the website as well as the website content also speaks of dreams which include governmental perspectives within the scopes of dream interpretation. The way in which humans have constructed man-made unnatural governmental systems are also a topic of “Ink-Um-Mind”, to which I found very fascinating. Especially her dream interpretation articles that made mentions of DARPA and the CIA.

The idea of “sovereignty” (self-ownership, self-mastery), is more than just knowing how to defend yourself against the long arm of the legal system. It’s also about knowing yourself in all ways possible. Knowing the limitations and possibilities of your mind, your body, and your perceptions.  If you are interested in getting to know yourself on a deeper level and have also been curious about those who investigate the inner-workings of their vicariously yet interdependent mental capacities………..then “Ink-Um-Mind” should be a nice exit for you to take when you are traveling down the  highspeed internet highway.

Check out her website, and give me a holler at Randyds5@yahoo.com and tell me what you think.  Does “Ink-Um-Mind” get a thumbs up or a thumbs down? I’d love to hear your thoughts. If I get enough positive feedback, perhaps I can convince her to give me an in-depth interview.

As for, I find the content very thought provoking. I’ve only read two articles at full length so far and I’m hooked.  As you read, keep this quote in mind………..

The Necessity of Struggle- A human condition

(Video showing the tremendous heart of welterweight champ micky Ward, who would often take a pounding in early rounds, only to come back in the late rounds and win! Very inspiring!)

I know that I typically post about governmental/law based topics, however, I occasionally delve  into the “sovereignty” and “spiritual” aspects of liberty and freedom beyond a legal standpoint. True freedom comes from our motivations and spiritual mindsets after all.  No matter how well researched you are, it will be meaningless in the end if the motivations are not pure.

For 12 years I toiled as a competitive martial artist/boxer/kickboxer. I enjoyed the benefits of discipline, training, fame, strength, and glory. Yet, I did not respect my body nor the process of inner development in general and thus, I lost my ability to compete at a high level due to improper nutrition, injuries, and burn-out. Just like any relationship, once a certain level of abuse reaches a threshold, then something just snaps and the motivation and/or the ability to continue ceases.

Last night I stayed up until 3am watching videos of my old fights as well as some training sessions. I watched as I gradually improved and saw how my style changed along with my attitude and body.  Soon, I could fill the fire building in my heart, the anticipation of the attack, the heart, the courage, the drama, and the sense of satisfaction that comes with overcoming a difficult opponent. I realized that I still had the desire to fight and I missed it so very much, but alas, my body just doesnt have the physical tools to perform at a high level anymore.

But, then I started to question my motivations. Why did I love combat and martial arts so much? Was it because I was picked on as a child? Was it because I had a hero complex and wanted to protect my mother and sister from abusive boyfriends? Was it because I had something to prove? Or do humans just love a challenge?  Perhaps it’s a bit of all of them…..but I have realized that “challenges” is what drives human existence.  Without hunger, there is no motivation to eat. Without thirst, there is no motivation to drink. Without a fight, a warrior is forced into a life of docile living, something that he is unaccustomed too.  After my competitive career ended, perhaps this is why I began to protest the government. Because I needed some “fight”, some battle, some challenge to take on….

Alas my readers, whatever your passion may be,  work hard, yet treat your goals with respect.  Even the things we love can break us if we test their patience too much.  Regardless of your motivations, whether you are an activist, fighter, researcher, or whatever type of “enthusiast”, take care, and practice all things with a healthy moderation, or else you may lose the thing in it’s entirety.

This is a poem I wrote showing my grief, regret, respect, and acceptance for the things that I have lost. Yet, in what I have lost, I have made room to gain in life lessons and gaining a well-rounded life perspective. This poem describes who I was, and now the acceptance of who I AM. Perhaps one day I can return, only time and circumstance can tell, regardless, time must move forward. Enjoy.



“The Tempted Boxer” 

She was my first love.

I miss the way that her leather wrapped around my hands and my wrists.

I miss the honesty and the purity that her ring showed me.

I miss her simplicity in that all things must end in victory or defeat.

I miss how she reminded me that I was so strong in some areas yet so weak others.

She was always there waiting for me so long as I was prepared to work hard.

Despite her beauty and her simplicity the damage can also be so unforgiving and irreversible.

Regardless, I long for the ghost of what I was.

And I can not deny Who I am.

The Squared circle was my first love.

But a certain someone has made me realize that combat has an even more beautiful younger sister and her name is “acceptance and peace.”

How to Reverse Guilty Testimony

Often times people find themselves in situations where they are surrounded in a social environment filled with questionable people who may find themselves constantly in harms way.  Many times we find that we are unintentionally caught up in their drama.  Sometimes we find ourselves in legal situations that seem hopeless due to our own ignorance of where we stand as free human beings.

Imagine this. A father comes home and practices baseball with his son. He pitches a ball towards his son and it hits him in the eye on accident. The boy’s eye becomes black and swollen. The next day, when the boy returns home from school, a government worker is with him to interrogate the boy’s father. Soon the father find’s himself in an interrogation room.

Often times,  arresting officers and detectives will say things such as….

” Your story is never going to hold up!”

” If you admit to doing it, I’ll ask the judge to cut you a deal”.

Don’t believe these statements! Only the District Attorney’s and the Judge’s can offer such plea deals.

If you are an unfortunate victim and fall for these tactics and admit to something that you have not done, or have stupidly given verbal testimony, you can cite “Undue Influence”stating that your testimony was given under a pressurized environment whereas your mental capabilities were not functioning properly.  Asking questions is always safe when dealing with authorities, however when you begin to make arguments and statements of innocence, you are creating loopholes for them to exploit. Before any court can accuse you of damaging someone or their property they must first prove jurisdiction, standing, and be able to verify any victim towards person(s) or properties.

If you have given into fear, and have started to spout off many statements which have gotten you into deep water with the law, and you feel that you have been bullied into giving guilty testimony you may be able to invoke the doctrine of “undue influence”.

“Undue Influence”

This is a legal term which roughly means, “To admit/Comply under threat or stress.”  Anything done “under duress” is considered tainted and not pure in the sense of it being consensual. Anything that is not done voluntarily is always questioned in terms of morality and sanctity.

Some may think that it is the same as “Under Duress”. Under Duress is where someone performs an action under a direct threat. However, Undue Influence, is more passive and suggestive.

Last but not least,

I want to remind all of my loyal fans to invoke and educate others on the principle of “Jury Nullification”. Regardless of whether or not you broke any man made law, the jury has the right to refuse a conviction, even if you admit to breaking such a law. If the jury feels that the law is unjust, they can refuse to convict. DA’ s and Judges have tried to keep “Jury Nullification” a secret for years, yet the word is coming out.

When you are court, everything must be proven……..and I mean EVERYTHING.  Proof that the Constitution is a contract that YOU signed-understood-agreed too, and that it is relevant to you, proof that no racketeering is taking place, proof that you performed some alleged harmful action, ect….

Claiming “Undue Influence” may tilt more leverage in your favor, however now that you are going back on your previous testimony, now any future actions will be under slightly more scrutiny. So, please be advised of that, and always be on the lookout for any mistakes on the part of the prosecution.

Discovery, Demurrers, and brushing up on using “leading” cross-examining tactics are essential towards fighting any victimless crime and defending yourself against the long arm of the law. Treat others with respect, uphold your contract obligations, be honorable, create no victim, and thus you shall always carry a light heart that is free of any burdensome weight.

District Attorney says , “The whole world is a Victim”.

Here at Sovereigntactics.org, we have a mantra…

“No Victim, No crime”.

In most victimless crime cases , I tend to ask the following questions

Who is the victim?

The state?

Who is the state?

Where is he/she/it?

Can you prove his/her/it’s existence?


Watch in this video as a man attempts to ask these tough questions.

Take notice that this man purchased the defense package from the services offered page on this website.  This video is very educational for my readers. Although the creator of this video did make some minor mistakes by giving away too much irrelevant information about himself, it will still an excellent effort on his part. Watch as the DA squirms in his seat as he attempts to answer these tough questions.

Man attempts to Arrest Officer

Websites like “Sovereign Tactics” and “Cop Block” , promote the idea of free-markets and anti-racketeering, and the notion that badges do not grant extra rights. Since we all know that government monopolized services are instituted by racketeering, many are taking it upon themselves to “police the police”.  In this video, we see a young man attempt to cite a police officer for “double parking”.

Many statists will try to defend the officer, however, in a true free society, everyone should be held to the same standard.  It is my belief that through logic, philosophy, and technology, a time will come where government services will be phased out through competing privatized services.

Last year more Americans have died at the hands of police officers than US soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
