Guest Post: I Will Not Comply

Tyler Durden's picture


Submitted by Matthew May via American Thinker blog,

Like most members of the Congress that passed it and, undoubtedly, the president of the United States who signed it, I have not read the entirety of the ill-named Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  Yet there is one aspect concerning that legislation of which I am certain: I will not comply.

I will not comply because I am a free citizen of the United States, not a subject of its government.  I consider non-compliance with this monstrosity and the tens of thousands of pages of regulations that are to be enforced by an unelected bureaucracy, and that have left a gigantic carbon footprint on our environment and the United States Constitution, a duty.

Non-compliance is my executive order, and that order reads in part that I do not recognize any government's claim on my action or inaction in the marketplace, nor upon any personal information I am unwilling to divulge.

I will not submit to a cabal who read George Orwell's 1984 not as a terrifying warning, but as an instruction manual.  Nor will I submit to the dictates of those who attempt to trample the right of free speech of others in the halls of government who are warning us about the looming tyranny.  I refer to those sons of liberty who, as Camus wrote, "are not all legitimate or to be admired. Those who applaud it only when it justifies their privileges and shout nothing but censorship when it threatens them are not on our side."

If (when) the IRS or HHS or any other such entity attempts to extort a tax or fee of any kind for not participating in mandated commerce, they will be met with resistance.  I will not pay any such tax or fee.

I live in Massachusetts, where, once upon a time, a spirit of resistance and independence animated much of the citizenry.  But many here have devolved from the shot heard round the world to sheltering in place.  Not I -- nor many of my fellow Bay Staters, who are outnumbered but undaunted.

Refusing to comply with the dictates of an illegitimate law that is selectively enforced, and from which the privileged few are exempted, is not, in the annals of American history, brave or difficult.  Those who refuse to comply are not barefoot in the snows of Valley Forge, crying out in agony at Gettysburg, or rushing the cockpit of Flight 93.  While there will be consequences to civil disobedience in defiance of oppression, any difficulties can be and will be overcome.

We are, however, drawing a line that the forces of repression, socialism, and tyranny must not cross.  Some might even color the line red.  Yet unlike a certain other, this red line is immovable.  I yield nothing on the plane of freedom.  I will not take any small step that is, in actuality, one giant leap backward to the darkness we thought we had vanquished.

Who is with me?

HAHAHAHAHA !!!  OOOhhooo  LOL !!!!


Of COURSE you comply !  EVERY DAY.  Look at your check.  You pay income tax.  You comply.  You pay payroll tax.  You comply.  You pay corporate tax if you own a business.  You comply.  You pay for your driver's license.  You comply.  You pay for your car tag, boat tag, trailer tag, mobile home tag.  You comply.  You pay property tax.  You comply.  You pay sales tax.  You comply.  You pay banking fees, broker's fees, early termination fees, late fees, interest on credit cards, home loans, mortagages, school loans, car loans, trancsactions fees, doc fees, title fees.  You comply. 

If you don't a man in a uniform with a badge finds you and compels you to comply or he shoots you if you fight back. comply.

Corp/Fed has gotcha' by the balls.  Welcome to Prison Planet....where the only ability for you NOT TO COMPLY is to not comply with REALITY !!

Denny's is a private institution and perfectly within their rights to specify you do not smoke on their premises if you want to eat there. Don't like it? Eat somewhere else.

You're right Jumbotron, you're right.  But, our balls are caught in a vise- especially if we have family.  I suppose you weren't hatched on top of a fencepost.  So, I wonder...  How will you care for you and yours in this "Brave New World"?

Seems to me that the best thing to do is back away from this beast slowly- like you might treat a bear with cubs.

I agree with you. Only comply to the degree to get by...otherwise stay out of the system. Shop craigslist/eBay/garage sales/buy some property and get an agriculture sales tax exemption to use as much as possible, etc.

Starve the beast and comply as little as feasible.

I'm raising my 5 kids on two principles.  The love of God and your fellow man.....but to also be as shrewd and honest minded as George Carlin about the ways of the human condition and bullshit......most importantly of all....the bullshit you try to convince yourself about yourself.  And that goes for me as well.

Question everything....every conventional piece of wisdom.....especially American wisdom.  Question God.  He actually wants you to.  The Bible says so.  It's one piece of proof that there is a RELATIONSHIP.....not just blind obedience.  Question Daddy (me) and mommy....because sometimes....we are FULL of shit and wrong. 

And if you think the world is intolerable.....the country is intolerable......then fight to change it.   But make DAMN sure it's going to stick....and that the fight is something worth sacrificing yourself for.  History proves NOTHING STICKS because man is irrevocably corrupt.  Even good ideas such as the Republic and the Constitution were doomed to fail because they could only TEMPORARILY contain man's corruption.....never take it away.

  Otherwise....fight to improve yourself.....make a MORE PERFECT you.....before you try to make a MORE PERFECT UNION.  Try being a MORE PERFECT NEIGHBOR....a MORE PERFECT FRIEND....a MORE PERFECT FATHER OR MOTHER.

I think they'll find that ALL of their time is spent just doing that.....and will find VERY little time to save the Union....which is beyond saving.  Only picking up the pieces and starting over.....quite possibly one member at a time.

5 kids.  Forgive me for saying so, 'cos I have 3 myself (all grown now), but wtf were you thinking?  Look man, I'm all with you, and I already said I think you're "right".

Dude, I ain't perfect.. never will be.  Nor are you,so you can quit preachin' to me just about... now.

You think you're the only motherfucker on this planet that is aware?  Like Jack Palance once said of Billy Crystal, "I crap bigger than you".

Did you not ask me this question?

 So, I wonder...  How will you care for you and yours in this "Brave New World"?

I answered your question.  If you feel I was being preachy or didactic that's your fault.  I intended neither.

As to your statement....."5 kids.  Forgive me for saying so, 'cos I have 3 myself (all grown now), but wtf were you thinking?"

I was thinking that after the first one....that each of the following 4 were miracles.  Because they all came after a brutal, year long, 4 chemical cocktail poison regime to save my life and beat my cancer.  My doc recommended I bank some sperm because I was going to be sterile.  I didn't.  What do they know.  Except for this.  I know he thinks my kids are miracles too.  Because he told me so.

What.....the.....FUCK.....are you talking about?

Look dickhead.  I told you a fact.  I had a disease.  I was not a victim.  Never did I mention I felt that way.  Nor was I a victor.  I didn't beat anything.  The chemo did.  I was supposed to be sterile.  I had 4 kids by choice after that.  I had nothing to do with that medical miracle.

Go blow some more on Rush Limbaugh's RUGGED individual.  Jack off Sean GREAT American.  Fight for your Constitution while reaming Mark Levin.....ya' MORON !

I see now that anybody that doesn't fit into your narrow, religious viewpoint (your religion being American conservatism) has just GOT to be a pantywaste, commie-pinko victim.  Else your booze addled brain would twist itself into a pretzel.

Here's a clue.  I don't give a fuck about Conservatism OR Liberalism.  They are BOTH failed philosophies.  Capitalism and Socialism.  Both equally heinous and breeding grounds for injustice.  Just a matter of degree and time....both inevitable.

But you just go right ahead pidgeon holing people.  Whatever gets you through the night.

Well Jumbo, as long as you're telling me what I think/believe, you might as well proceed with destroying that strawman you created.  Hannity and Limbaugh make me nauseous in the same way Obama/Reid/Pelosi/Boehner/Cantor do.  I will say though, I'm proud of you for sticking up for yourself, even if you do find comfort in strawman building/destroying.

I don't believe in religion.  You mentioned Carlin in one of your posts.  People say he was an atheist, I never heard him say that.  The same is said of Ayn Rand- but I never read that from her.  So, you can call me anything you want, it doesn't make it true.  The reason I mention Carlin is because he simply said what he felt and was unapologetic.  He offended tender sensibilities and challenged dogma.  In retrospect, I should not have mentioned your kids.  Everybody thinks their own kids are special, and that everyone else's is well, nothing special.  Ever wonder why that is?

As for Capitalism, I've never experienced the free market variety, therefore I don't know with certainty how well it works.  My hunch is that it would be a helluva lot better than the rampant Fascism we currently have.

Now just to cement your opinion that I am an asshole, here are some corrections:

There is no "d" in pigeon.

It's pantywaist, Jumbo. Pantywaist.  Although, pantywaste is a bit more humorous.

So, I'll be sure not to mention your progeny and you'll try to find the irony in your statement about pigeon-holing.  Deal?

Deal....asshole.  ;)

As far as my misspelling.  Rapid...pissed off typing.  Pigeon with a d...yeah, I'll own it.  Pantywaste....well....I did that on purpose.  Any good writer (I am not one) will tell you to first write for yourself in a way that makes you happy.  If you find an audience...great.  If not....then you still satisfied a deep need to get your thoughts and creativity on paper.  I went back and spelled it that way...for the express purpose of amusing myself.  And I'm very easily amused (that's not a fault or a weakness.....but a decades long honed skill; for if I was not easily amused I would find myself in a semi-permanent fetal position from the horror show that makes up most of modern American life).  Good catch though and I am genuinely glad you were amused.  I meant it that way....even if it was just for me.

As far as my children....say what you want.  Why should I care?  But I do not look at them as special.  Miracle....yes.  Medically special....yes.  Gift from God....yes.  But special just because they are mine.....nope.  They're not really mine.  I had nothing to do with the formation of the DNA and RNA and amino acids and lipids and neurons and everything else that makes up a human being including my kids.  And as a a Creator...a Father....then we are all family and equally as special.

It's just some of my family are bigger assholes than me.  Glad to finally meet you brother. ;)

Backing away slowly is one approach but doesn't work with a charging rhino.  A more decisive approach is to stand and shoot.

That will get attention. Sacrifice necessary, but it is the only positive form of opposition left to the oppressed.

It amazes me how many people don't get it. I will not comply. I will not pretend that the Uniform or the Badge denote any legitimate authority. I will shoot at and kill as least one man with the badge when he attempts to make me comply. The other men with the badges will shoot me. I will die.  Liberty or Death. 

If I am alone, this means nothing. So the question is - how many more are out there like me, and how many men with the badges do they have willing to enter my home point a gun at my head and for the oh so urgent taks of  demanding  I buy health care?  

Lefties can never fathom such a selfsacrifice beingf completely self centered and without any principoles they would fight and die for.,. but I assure you such people exist. The question is how many of them are there, and are your forces enough?

Go ahead Skippy.  Just give us your name so we can make sure to remember your name when you go down in a blaze of glory after next year's April 15th.  Or when you stop paying property prove that you ACTUALLY OWN anything at all.....which you don't.

Stop paying that mortgage to that MOLOCH bank until Jamie Dimon or Blankfein are getting it up the ass in prison.

But go ahead....please do prove us wrong.  I REEEAALLLY would just love to see from a purely sociological standpoint what Balkinization would bring to this country.  I would REEALLLLY hate to live through it....but it sure wouldn't be boring.

The very freedom of access to this country (both legal and illegal) coupled with the freedom to think and believe however you wish including the freedom to ignore and disbelieve in Founding Principles has paved the way to Balkinization.  All it will take is your "quiet", "individual" secret group to come out guns blazing to "TAKE BACK AMERICAN" (which I always, white slave-holding land owners who thought all men were created equal except for niggers and women ?) to see the lovely paradise of Serbia or Rwanda be played out in America.

If there's a runaway train hurtling down a track, do you stand in front of it in a vain attempt to stop it? Useless self-sacrifice is just that - useless. And it may do more harm than good, if it means your children wind up in some institution, or, God forbid, getting killed because the Feds have read your 'heroic' pronouncements on the internet, and, instead of serving a warrant in the day, send a SWAT team in the dead of night to storm your place of abode because you're a self-avowed 'domestic terrorist', and fuck up and wind up killing your family.

While we have the vote, it is much more constructive to educate your fellow voters. At this time, violently resisting the 'authorities' and getting killed just gives them more power, not less... more excuse for them to become more militarised, more excuse for them to monitor everything we do, more excuse to confiscate weapons.

No one with half a brain would announce on the internet that they will resist the authorities with deadly force when the authorities carry out their legal duties. To do so is to invite being taken with overwhelming force, to face instant death from above. You sir, are either an idiot, or an agent provocateur, here to help the Feds find out who agrees with you.

Fuck off with your useless violence. No, not just useless, but counterproductive violence.

We don't have the vote. We have a charade where you wal into a booth, look at a bunch of lighted pixels, touch the pixels, and then they told you who "won." Think you are voting? Just try and have the so called "ballots" counted and the totals verified.  Can't be done. Resistance is the only way. There is a full spectrum of resistance available from going out in a blaze of gunfire to gumming up the works at every opportunity. Choose your method but please, diasbuse yourself of the notion that there are elections and your vote is counted any other way than the way that the PTB want it counted.

Ironically, whether we genuinely have the vote or not, as long as the vast majority of the people believe they have the vote, violent resistance is useless, because the majority will just vote - or propel with their support - the same types of parasites and parasitic institutions back into power.

If you live in a land populated by collectivist sheep, then it doesn't matter what you do (unless you plan killing them all, or disenfranchising them) because the day after the revolution they will hold out their wrists to the nearest politico to get them reshackled... and will help the politico's henchmen ensure your wrists get shackled, too.

We have two realistic choices - persuade our fellows that Big Government is a very bad idea, or move somewhere else. But seeing as collectivism is now the predominant Western political ideology, where would you move that would be any different? Particularly if you don't fancy (or can't afford) being unable to communicate effectively with your new countrymen for several years while learning to speak another language. And even if you do find some (relatively) free place, what's to guarantee the poison of collectivism won't pollute the minds of the local sheep? Collectivism appeals to an innate part of human nature, the desire to get something for nothing.

We find ourselves where we are. We have to deal with the hand we are dealt. At the moment, that hand is fascism-lite (though getting heavier by the week). If we devolve into an out-and-out tyranny and there is a sufficient number of people who see through the veil of 'democracy' to the knives and gears underneath, then, yes, run to the hills and make a stand, start an armed insurrection. Until then, it's futile, useless, and yes, counterproductive. You - a person who could have reached out to thousands of sheep and made them think, with reason, and analogy, and pithy apothegms... instead gets snuffed out in a smear of meat and gray matter, an example to the other sheep of what happens to those who violently resist.

What a waste.

Here is a little secret folks.

The Articles of Confederation.....The Declaration of Independence......The second Constitution (the first being the Articles of Confederation) and the Bill of Rights......all give me the right to choose to ignore them....and destroy any civilization founded upon them.

The people of America (both legal and illegal) have spoken, have voted and are moving to exercise that right.

If you REEEEAALLLY love freedom and want to see the Founder's vision be propogated and perpetuated....then you guys need to do what the Founders and their forefathers did.

Get on a boat and leave for better ground.

No, the Bible says you should respect the government's authority, even if you disagree with it.

Obedience in some cases might be slavery, but in this case it's not really different from buckling your seat belt The American right's terror of socialized medicine is hilarious. Granted this is a really stupid law and a terrible way to do it. But it is not in and of itself going to reduce you to a slave in a stalinist state. I live in Europe and trust me on this, whatever you heard on Fox News, there is absolutely NO comparison between going to an emergency room here for a broken leg versus in the States. Here it's good doctors, right away, all the way through, no waiting (2 hours) -- X-rays, an MRI, and the total bill is about $350. WITHOUT the insurance because I'm not on the social medicine plan.

Really can't bitch about that. Did Obama screw the pooch? Yup. The bill's a disaster. And it's gonna sink like a stone no matter what. Getting all worked up about it is pretty silly though. There are much worse things. Like the NSA. And drones being used by the FBI since 2006, apparently. And Google. Just a heads up, this little debate is what they want you to focus on. It doesn't make a shine of difference in the world.
