Those who have had no share in the good fortunes of the mighty
Often have a share in their misfortunes.
-- Bertolt Brecht, "The Caucasian Chalk Circle"
March 9th: As many of you know, almost from the time we opened our site in 1996, we have suggested reading Jack McLamb's book Operation Vampire Killer 2000. The hardcopy book has been available for sale in our catalog for most of this time, and a stripped-down version has been available in our Reading Room.
About a year ago, when we were close to selling out of the hardcopy books (as has happened many times over the years-- we bought them by the case, and had trouble keeping them in-stock), I called to order another case. The nice lady (Carol) told me they were no longer publishing this book, and she had none to send me. It was then I asked permission for The Lawful Path to publish the full book digitally, and it was agreed.
To my shame and embarrassment, it is only now that we've finally been able to make the time to present it. I'm pleased to announce that you will now find in our Reading Room, the complete, revised, Operation Vampire Killer 2000, together with all the original illustrations, photos, posters, and maps.
We also wish to announce that Jack McLamb has written a new and very much updated Operation Vampire Killer 2012 which is now on-sale. We are not offering it in our own catalog at this time; only because we have temporarily suspended handling all hardcopy books. I've personally read this new book, and highly recommend it. Ordering information is found at the end of the OVK2000 book on our site. Please follow the link in the paragraph above.
February 25th: We've done a little housekeeping in our Reading Room. Articles will be hopefully easier to find by topic, and the topics in our Forum will be structured to encourage discussion of the articles in our Reading Room. We hope you like the changes.
Also please notice the addition of a new article: Notes on Right to Travel.
February 20th: We are pleased to announce the opening of our new Forum section. We've never run a forum before, so this is probably more new to us than it is to you. It's not very populated at the moment, either with members or with posts. We hope this will be a blessing to our readers-- a place to exchange ideas, and pool information.
In truth, one of the biggest reasons for this forum is that we receive many emails from time to time, asking pretty much the same dozen or so questions. A forum seems to be a more appropriate place to field such questions, and keep the answers more current.
The forum is also a place where you may post notices of calendar events for your own upcoming local meetings, and share news which the mainstream media hasn't covered. We're hoping for valuable discussions about fine points in law and procedure; if you just went through a traffic case, or a divorce / support dispute, please post your story here so that it may help others.
The forum also contains a private section, which will become our primary support mechanism for our exclusive books, such as "How to Survive Hospital Costs Without Insurance" and "Coverture and the Courts". If you have purchased any of these books, please ask to be granted access to the private boards. And please ask your questions there, rather than over private email, omitting any personal information you don't want to share. Over time, we expect the answers to most of your questions may be found immediately on the forum.
If you have any questions or comments, the forum has a place for them. Or, if you prefer, you can still address mail directly to our Editor. Thank you for your patronage.
January 5th: The Christian Jural Society News has now been posted complete with articles 1 through 70. This was a work of love and devotion by Brother Thomas, who did all the work. It has taken me over a year to publish it, and I deeply apologize for the delay. Thank you Brother Thomas, and thanks also to the numerous readers who have badgered me to finally get this online.
January 5th: The most prominent subject in the American news today is gun control. Specifically, the disarming of the American public.
If we are to believe the mainstream media, the Second Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of America is obsolete, and should be repealed. President Obama has been heard to say "We are working on gun control under the radar...", and has declared that if Congress won't do something, then he will do it himself.
"Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest." Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi
The Founders considered the right of self-defense second only to the free worship of their God. Which is to say that it was first in importance with regard to worldly issues. They had firsthand experience with government tyranny, and knew that only an armed public may be free from such tyrants.
Modern history teaches beyond question that the biggest danger of unnatural death is democide; death by government. According to R. J. Rummel, author of Statistics of Democide, between the years 1900 to 1999, at least 262 million people have been killed by governments. This does NOT include people killed in war. These people were civilian, mostly killed by their own governments, very soon after they had been disarmed.
For years, the U.S. Government has been blatantly violating its own Constitution.
Mainstream media pushes every manner of filth and claims protection under the First Amendment, and Muslims, Jews, Hindi, and Buddhists practice their faith without harassment. Meanwhile, Christians are persecuted at every turn.
The misnamed Patriot Act has stripped Americans of their reasonable expectation of privacy, safety from unreasonable search and seizure (Fourth Amendment) and due process (Sixth Amendment).
You may now be kidnapped by government, without cause, and in secret, and be held indefinitely without trial, or access to habeas corpus. You think it can't happen to you? Ask Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
Powers reserved to the people are commonly and repeatedly seized, in blatant disregard for the Tenth Amendment.
If the government is willing to inflict this tyranny on an armed populace, what will restrain them from mass murder once the populace is disarmed?
During the Cold War it was common knowledge that it was not the U.S. military which prevented other countries from invading American soil; all the countries of the world knew that in America they would find a rifle behind every blade of grass.
The facts are really pretty simple:
- Bills, statutes, executive orders, and regulations which are not authorized by the Constitution, are not lawful, period.
- The Constitution contains provisions for amendment.
- If you want to amend the Constitution, then do so according to the rules, if you can. The heavy restrictions on amendment are there for a reason.
And here is the most important fact of all: Government gets its rights and powers from the People, not the other way around! If you look at the Constitutions for the individual States, you will see the following statement, always written in a prominent place: All political power is inherent in the people.
You will find several essays on this Site dealing with the principles of agency. Agency is a right or power given by a person who lawfully possesses that right or power, to a person who otherwise does not have it. For example, you may need to sell your car. You have ads in the paper and potential buyers are calling, but you also need to take a two-week business trip out of town. Your best friend agrees to follow up on the calls, and sell the car for you. So you give your friend a limited power-of-attorney. With this, he can sign the title over, and do whatever else needs to be done to complete the sale.
But here is the key point: Just because you gave a power-of-attorney to your friend, does not mean you surrendered your right to sell the car yourself. Furthermore, you have the right to revoke the powers given to your friend, at any time.
We, the People, have given police and military the right to carry guns, bombs, bazookas, and rocket launchers. We can do this, because the right is ours. Giving them that right does not mean we surrendered our own right to do the same, no matter what Michael Moore, Jennifer Aniston, or anyone else might have you believe.
If the American people had no right to bear arms, then neither would their agents have that right, which includes all police and military, County, State, and Federal.
Of course the government will not give up their guns. That would be silly. Just as it is silly, actually dangerously tragic, for a free people to give up theirs. There is no such thing as a free people who have no reasonable power of self-defense. No matter what illusions they may hold, such a people are really conquered slaves.
The Authors of the Constitution knew the biggest danger to the people came not from invasion by foreign government, but from subversion from within.
Elected government officials and all military personnel are required to give an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic". Knowingly violating this oath is not merely perjury, but is, in fact, treason.
Thus, just as a soldier who gives aid and comfort to the enemy is guilty of treason, so any lawmaker who knowingly proposes a bill which is unauthorized by the Constitution is guilty of treason. Particularly when the consequences of such a bill will give aid to the enemies of the People, whether they be foreign or domestic.
For many years we've been drawing lines in the sand. The government, without fail, crosses the line; we retreat, and draw a new line. If we allow them to cross the line of disarming Mr. and Mrs. American, then we will never have the opportunity to draw any more lines. It will be game over.
Until next time... Thanks for reading.

The better the state is established, the fainter is humanity.
To make the individual uncomfortable, that is my task.
on Guns and Doctors
- The number of physicians in the U.S. is approximately 700,000.
- Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are approximately 120,000.
- Accidental deaths per physician is 0.1714286.
Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services.
- The number of gun owners in the U.S. is approximately 80,000,000. (Yes, that's 80 million)
- The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500.
- The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.0000188.
Statistics courtesy of FBI.
Doctors are more than 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do.'
FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT
Almost everyone has at least one doctor.
This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as by a gun owner!!!
Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors
before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!
Out of concern for the public at large, We withheld the statistics on
lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!

Free. Not subject to legal constraint of another.
