According to our Constitutions, as members of our society, as Americans, as sovereigns, you are the only lawful authority. However, there is even a higher authority to which we as Americans subscribe…that is natural law.
My own personal preference is described as follows:
As one of the people…you decide what is right and what is not! These are our decisions as Americans…responsible Americans. And as responsible Americans we must be guided by the principle that we may delegate some of our authority to others in the course of living our lives…but we can never escape the responsibility of being an American. For as Americans, we have been endowed by our Creator with the accountability for our own actions as well as the responsibility by which we see fit to act!
We must also be reminded that our employees when acting in the capacity as employees will always be nothing more than employees and as such…have no more say with regard to how we chose to live, than any other individual citizen.
Endowed by their Creator…The People are the Final Arbiters.
“All political power is inherent in the people. Government is instituted for their protection, security, and benefit, and they have the right to alter or reform it when the public good may require.” ― Article 2, Section 1, California Constitution.
Those who represent themselves as members of government…any level of government, only have the authority to provide services and protections as we the people delegate the appropriate amount of authority to them to perform this work for the people. When we delegate our authority we do not yield our sovereignty nor give up any rights to retain control over these governmental agencies we create for our benefit. We only delegate sufficient authority to our employees to perform the work of the people. We do not grant them any authority to dictate to us, their employers as to how we chose to live our lives as long as we do no harm.
Defining the role of our Public Servants – California
The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies or the public servants which serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may retain control over the instruments they have created.
Keep the above in mind as you view the following:
