In crafting the foundational documents for our republic, our Founders
chose to follow the advice of John Locke. They constructed our
government with the Nature of Man in mind. Perhaps nothing better sums
up the Founder’s perspective of the Nature of Man than Cato Letters
Men, having been given free will, are not virtuous by
nature and, acknowledging their imperfections, create governments so
that they may live in safety and harmony together.
Acting on this knowledge, our Founding Fathers built into our
Government and Constitution, various checks and balances. Amongst these
checks and balances were transparency and accountability. [http://goo.gl/R2KfY4
Until this just past week it seemed that our Federal, State and Local
governments had forgot about their obligations of transparency and
accountability to WE THE PEOPLE. In the past few days Minnesotans have
been tantalized with the prospect of the return to a policy of checks,
balances, transparency and accountability in our State and local
governments in accordance with the Constitution and the vision our
Founders had for this Country.
In rapid succession, our state and federal government, some local law
enforcement and the federal judiciary have agreed to the outsourcing of
the investigation of complaints against Minneapolis police officers
(MPD), financial disclosure by Minnesota State Judges and a Federal
Judge has ruled the majority of data mining by the NSA to be
unconstitutional. These actions represent a move in the right direction
by Federal and Minnesota State and Local Governance in providing
peaceful resolution to redress grievances brought by a wide-ranging
coalition of citizens.
This writer will begin by providing you links to various Major Media
reporting of these actions. Then this writer will offer his perspective
and analysis of these Liberty expanding actions over the course of 3
successive daily installments. This analysis to include pointing out
major media‘s spin, which this writer believes accrues to the detriment
of rank and file Americans. In the end, this writer will ask the reader
to use their own observations and reasoning to determine truth for
themselves (pursuant to Natural Law) using Critical Thinking [http://goo.gl/R2KfY4
With Major Media feeling obligated to run ads alleging they are more
trustworthy than the internet, it will be interesting to hear whether
you find major media’s reporting or this writer’s reporting as better
reflecting the truth you will determine for yourself?
You can read the major media’s spun versions of these expansions of Transparency and Accountability of government here:

Though one of these actions seems to be lacking in sincerity and
scope, they represent concessions in a well documented struggle by
groups this writer has lead, leads or has otherwise been affiliated with
to achieve peaceful resolution to some of our Natural Law Right
Petitions for Redress of Grievances without fear of punishment and
reprisal as reduced to writing in the 1st Amendment.
For those new readers who are unaware, this writer has been involved
in what he now calls the WE THE PEOPLE TAR (Transparency, Accountability
and Reform) movement for more than 20 years. While this writer has been
primarily engaged in demanding Judicial TAR and Government Fiscal TAR,
he has been aligned with and affiliated with groups with diverse demands
for redress of grievances from our government. Since 2005, hundreds of
Minnesotans have sought and been denied a hearing to give evidence and
testimony of systemic corruption in the Minnesota Judiciary before the
Minnesota House and Senate Judiciary Committees.
Your government, who misleads rank and file Americans into believing
it is benevolent, is anything but. Your government actively, illegally
and unconstitutionally, punishes and reprises against the voices of
political dissent. At least one individual has moved out of the country
to escape the retaliation. Others have moved out of state and assumed a
low profile to escape retribution. Others have.....

Those were my thoughts.
Thank you, my fellow citizens, for taking your valuable time to read and reflect upon what is written here.
If what is written here rings true to you, perhaps you should contact
your local elected officials and let them know. If you are afraid of
repercussions, snail mail it anonymously and ask them to respond in the
local paper or their own monthly/quarterly internet newsletter. Even if
this article refers to something outside you geographic area, it still
likely applies to your location. Remember all those taxpayer training
junkets we taxpayers send the bureaucrats on? They all learn the same
“livestock management” techniques to use on WE THE PEOPLE.
And that leaves WE THE PEOPLE with this conundrum: While our
#Government works full time with compensation and funded with our money
for the cause of #Tyranny; WE THE PEOPLE are forced to work part time
without compensation for the cause of #liberty with what is left over of
our time, money and energy.
Finally, this article is written with the same intentions as Thomas Paine http://ushistory.org/paine
. I seek no leadership role. I seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own “Common Sense” http://amzn.to/kbRuar
