If you live in the US, you have two powers that a citizen of Canada does not have. One is nullification. (In Canada we can nullify on a jury but almost no citizens know about this power.) I first learned about nullification in the US from Tom Woods. If you don’t know about the powers of nullification please see Tom Woods’ book:
You also have sheriffs that you elect. Canadians only have the RCMP and in some places local police, all paid for and controlled by the government. If you haven’t heard about the Oath Keepers they are committed to the Constitution. “Oath Keepers is an American nonprofit organization that advocates that its members (current and former U.S. military and law enforcement) disobey any orders that they are given if they believe they violate the Constitution of the United States.”
But like I have said before, all of these things are out of my control. I only have power over how I can structure my household affairs. How the world is structured is out of my control.
PS freedom: I used to think that PT was only for the rich too. As technology has changed, these methods are becoming more and more affordable. Learn the methods and apply what you can to your personal situation. Think outside the box. As Harry Browne once say, we are already free, we just have to choose to live that way.
