1774, Lord North sent a conciliatory plan to the American Colonies that basically said just comply with our tax plan and we will forget all of this disruption.
Jefferson responded in 1775:
“The this privilege of giving or of withholding our monies, is an important barrier against the undue exertion of prerogative, which, if left altogether without controul, may be exercised to our great oppression; and all history shews how efficacious is its intercession from redress of grievances, and re-establishment of rights, and how improvident it would be to part with so powerful a mediator.”
Jefferson knew that simply accepting the budget created by parliament without question or control was the complete surrender of the power of the people to an unlimited government.

Let us contemplate Jefferson’s words as our own Congress moves to pass yet another Continuing Resolution. This resolution would “fund government” until December 9 and is literally an authorization to unlimited government spending and unlimited government power.
Our Congress will not only continue to fund programs and agencies that are not authorized by the Constitution, they will fund and support programs and agencies that are prohibited by the Constitution. This was exactly the kind of behavior that Jefferson was warning us about.
Jefferson said this kind of spending is “unreasonable and insidious.”
Unreasonable because if we simply accept this spening by Congress, without open defiance, we are selling out our control and liberties to purchase favor from the government. We avoid a “government shutdown” and keep the money flowing, that is true; but at what ultimate cost, asks Jefferson. This spending is insidious Jefferson claims, because the people have petitioned and begged for government to stop this spending, and in deliberate defiance of both the Constitution and the people, they have “artfully procrastinated” their “budget cuts” in order to continue their deceitful and unlawful activity.
Any, and yes I mean any, politician who will vote in favor of this continued violation of the Constitution, the Rights of the people, and the future of our Children should be shamed out of office and never voted to return.
Yes, I wholeheartedly believe that one bad vote should be grounds for dismissal. When you take Jefferson’s words to hear, we can see just how insidious the violations of a Continuing Resolution truly are.
Hold your House Rep responsible for this unlawful wickedness. https://goo.gl/6zoly5
