For those of you not old enough to remember, the end of the cold war was preceded by a number of treaties to reduce the overall number of Nuclear warheads in the world (SALT Treaty Talks). Some of the involved countries would always protest, feigning insult to the insistence that inspectors be allowed into their country to verify their compliance with the treaty. Out of this Cat and Mouse game, 40th US President Ronald Reagan(1981-1989), a Republican, came to use the phrase:

Can a Free People that intend to remain Free have any other policy toward their own government?
Failure to Disclose equals Presumption of Guilt

Along those same lines of thought is the human predisposition of presumed guilt arising from the failure of anyone to disclose information upon request. A sentiment reflected in the following line of reasoning from parents and law enforcement throughout most of history:

 “If you have nothing to hide, why won’t you answer my questions, show me the item in question and/or let me search your room, car, residence and/or business?” 
While individuals are supposed to have 5th Amendment privileges against self incrimination, our government does not.

Founding Father’s Provisions for
Transparency & Accountability

And this insight into human behavior was so fundamental that the Founder’s made provisions for “Transparency and Accountability” in our Founding Documents:
The fundamental understanding our US Founding Fathers had in drafting our constitution, is People under Natural Law have free will, and are not virtuous by nature. Therefore, governments must be constructed in anticipation of the nature of man. 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.

Before we go farther into the meat of the article, this writer would ask the reader to recognize this article as much more than just specific information about alleged financial waste and fraud in a particular local government.

Rather, this writer would ask the reader to recognize this information as insight into, and a road map for, discovering how ingeniously our elected officials, government bureaucrats and the “powers that be” ignore and/or circumvent Natural Law and specific provisions of the Constitution and/or the intent of the Founder’s in drafting the Constitution. And, further, that those methods result in censorship and propaganda then used to manage and manipulate WE THE PEOPLE through misinformation and duplicity. With that thought instilled in your mind, let us continue.

In this article, we are going to dissect and expose....

 In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

Those were my thoughts.

In Closing:

Thank you, my fellow citizens, for taking your valuable time to read and reflect upon what is written here.

Please join with me in mutually pledging to each other and our fellow citizens our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to our mutual endeavors of restoring liberty and economic opportunity to WE THE PEOPLE as our Founding Fathers envisioned and intended.

This article is written with the same intentions as Thomas Paine I seek no leadership role. I seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own “Common Sense”

The Conundrum: 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, while our #Government works full time with compensation and funded with our money for the cause of #Tyranny.
