WHY WE MUST KNOW AND ASSERT OUR RIGHTS AND WHY WE CAN'T DEPEND ON ANYONE TO HELP US

All rights come not from the government, from a judge, or any law, but from God, our Creator alone, just as the Declaration of Independence says.  Since rights don’t come from any man, but from God, then it’s vain and foolish to ask any earthly man what your rights are.  To remain free, we must know what rights are instinctively and be willing to literally fight for them at all times.  It’s not only impossible, but illegal for an attorney who practices law to fight for your rights within the context of a court proceeding.  Your attorney cannot claim or exercise any of the rights God gave you while he is representing you in any court proceeding.  For further details on this, read our article below:

An attorney cannot assert any of your rights on your behalf.  Only YOU, the sovereign, can. Below is a very good explanation of why we can’t be free and at the same time allow an attorney to represent us in court.  The quote below is extracted from a federal court decision:

"The privilege against self-incrimination [Fifth Amendment] is neither accorded to the passive resistant, nor the person who is ignorant of their rights, nor to one who is indifferent thereto.  It is a fighting clause.  Its benefits can be retained only by sustained combat It cannot be claimed by an attorney or solicitor.  It is only valid when insisted upon by a belligerent claimant in person."  
[U.S. v Johnson, 76 F. Supp. 538 (1947), Emphasis added]

Please notice the boldfaced and underlined words the court used in the above quote!  What human endeavor are these words normally used in connection with?   WAR!  Freedom is not for the timid, but for the brave.  That is why they call America “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave!”.  If you want to stay free, then you must be willing to fight with anyone and everyone who tries to take away that freedom, and especially with tyrannical public servants.

Rights [read Liberties] are always demanded!

Also note in the quote above that what the court above called a “privilege” is really structured in the Bill of Rights as a “Liberty” or restraint on government!  Who is afforded “civil rights”?  One who knows them and demands them! Our pledge of allegiance says “with liberty and justice for ALL”.  If you are going to stay free, then you must help everyone to stay free.  A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.  The weakest link is the most helpless, ignorant, and defenseless members of society.  We can only remain free so long as we are willing to donate our effort and money to defending the weakest members of society from government abuse.  If we only protect our rights and don’t help our neighbor defend his, then the tyrants in government will isolate, divide, and eventually conquer and enslave everyone.
