Consent thou Not

One way to create government is to invest your own right to choose into the hands of government by consent.109 That “form of government” may consist of a single man or body of men. A portion of your right to choose or liberty is waived and that power of choice is granted to others. Once you are bound by contract or oath, the leaders may force the sacrifices of the people.110

The leaders of these types of governments become rulers and will be able to take the first fruits of your labor, make his instruments of war and take your sons and daughters and much more.111 This power to compel your offerings is his by your consent. This contribution may be by virtue of legal title to property or even to the people’s labor. That sacrifice is similar to the corvee system of statutory labor of Egypt112 and Corban of the Pharisees that made the word of God to none effect according to Jesus.113

To lawfully give up your God given right to choose, your freedom, your liberty, it must be done by consent. We know that “All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights… That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”114

All government without the consent of the governed is the very definition of slavery!”115 Therefore “What is mine cannot be taken away without consent.”116

Yet, “A contract is law between the parties having received their consent.”117

People who have signed contracts with the United States through application and participation must also “...believe in the United States of America as a government…” and must also believe that the government’s “... just powers are derived from the consent of the governed: a democracy in a republic.”118

This of course must be done voluntarily because “Nothing is so contrary to consent as force and fear.”119

The contractual nature of government used to increase its power is not new. When the Israelites went under the power of Egypt it was by contract through an application for benefits.120

This same method of being a mighty provider121 but for a price is the most common manner of expanding the power of governments.

“The real destroyers of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations, and benefits.” 122For, “No one is obliged to accept a benefit against his consent. But if he does not dissent, he will be considered as assenting.”123 Because, “Every man is presumed to intend the natural and probable consequences of his own voluntary acts.”124

By vesting some of their own God given “right to choose” into the control of other men the people become subject to the powers of government they create. If that subjugation is coupled with debt the bonds under government power are not easily broken.

The bondage of Israel in Egypt is clear evidence that the withdrawing of consent does not set a man free. Israel had to learn many things which the people had forgotten before it was ready to take on the challenges of being a free nation under God.
