  1. (1) The Golden Rule: Whoever has the gold makes the rules.
    (2) From advanced mathematics: in the characterization of a system of multiple variables, every additional constraint reduces the number of degrees of freedon.
    Combined these principles tell us that whenever a government involves itself in the details of a non-governmental activity the result is reductions in freedom and in economic efficiency.
    It becomes incumbent upon the People, as the ultimate source of the Just powers of the government, to withhold their consent to be governed in ways that increase their suffering, decrease their freedoms and liberties, or deprive them of their human rights.
