“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”  - Benjamin Franklin

“Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” – Winston Churchill - The Second World War

"All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing." - Edmund Burke

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.  May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” - Samuel Adams, speech at the Philadelphia State House on August 1, 1776.

The Authority of Law

Below you will find audio files and documents from an indepth discussion and study of Charles A. Weisman's book "The Authority of Law".  From the back cover:

This material deals with the oldest and most basic legal principle associated with the use of law, one which today is being grossly ignored and violated.

This ancient principle relates to the enacting authority of a law, which is necessary to give a law its authority, authenticity, identity and validity...

...This material reveals what may prove to be one of the biggest legal scams perpetrated upon the American people, and one which could contribute to the downfall of America's corrupt legal system.
