There are 88 counties in the State of Ohio, yet there are 900 police departments all who participate in the “Click it or Ticket” campaign over the Memorial Day weekend for one reason—revenue enhancement! This “Click it or Ticket” initiative is a nationwide endeavor and the federal government is spending millions of dollars promoting it with expensive ads and marketing. It is sold to the public as a “protective” measure from big daddy government, but is in fact a diabolical infringement of the freedoms Americans enjoy and over time gradually deprive liberty from drivers everywhere with small increments of advancing the construction of a complete police state. Darryl Parks of 700 WLW covered this issue in the video below as I joined him to reiterate the amount of police departments there are in Ohio that have only one purpose—to tax motorists in another scheme to pay for the increases of government by giving all those police department employees working something to do.
In my generation I have watched the gradual erosion of resistance that has taken place in respect to “The Law.” These days’ young people think nothing of DUI check points, or “Click it or Ticket” fines because they’ve always seen them, and were recently indoctrinated in their government schools to blindly follow orders. So when ODOT puts out an ad stating that the fines they are collecting for violations are for the safety of society, it is failed to recognize that a cleaver scam has just been perpetuated. Police departments have managed to sell “nothing” to the public by charging society a fee to keep them “safe.” Gradually year after year more police departments have been created and to pay all those employees states have had to rely on more regulations so they can fine motorists to pay the salaries of so many police officers.
The police unions have done a good job helping this process along by vigorously promoting themselves as useful advocates of “safety” and attacking any politician who does not “support law enforcement.” This has led to tremendous amounts of pandering from public personalities, particularly those in the legal profession because these increases in regulations created by comb-over politicians, enforced by cops, and processed by the courts have made great livings for lawyers who need revenue from the massive amounts of DUI cases, traffic infringements, and safety violations like “Click it or Ticket.” Then once those court cases have concluded the parasitic insurance companies can then raise their rates since they have a non competitive oligopoly granted by the politics of their state through mandatory purchase. If you want to drive, you must have insurance, which guarantees insurance companies in states a share of business for every driver on the road, so there is little incentive to keep their rates low to meet the needs of their customers. Government guaranteed these companies income from every motorist on the roadways, and it is the cops who help drive up the rates through regulation enforcement.
What has happened is that so many regulations have been passed over the last 20 years that were disguised as “safety” for the public, but were in actuality funding mechanisms for the public employees and the parasites who feed off misery—such as lawyers, insurance agencies, and ad companies doing work for ODOT. Darryl is 100% correct; the American people let it happen. On Memorial Day, and coming up on July 4th we celebrate our fights for freedom in America but right in front of our faces these freedoms have been eroded away into tyranny. We should not be pulled over at check points to verify that we have on our seat belts. Government is not our parent and we are certainly not their children—their loyal subjects. When a person considers that there are 900 police departments in only 88 counties in Ohio, it must be questioned why so many cops are needed. Of course the Fraternal Order of Police will say that it is for public safety. They use the same type of line that the teachers unions use to protect their members, which kids deserve a chance to succeed, so more teachers are needed—as if parents had nothing to do with the process of raising a child. Cops are sold as protectors of our safety, but they are actually tax collectors and they have full authority to carry out the whims and back room deals made by corrupt politicians who pander to the mobs of lobby power in order to soak from the American citizen every last dime that can be taken without actually squeezing the life out of the victim.
I feel so passionate about this issue that I wrote a novel about it, because I recognized as Darryl stated that we have allowed it to happen, we stood by idly and allowed a police state to grow right under our feet. To me the most alarming aspect of those 900 police departments in Ohio is that under the NDAA Act President Obama signed into law on New Year’s Eve this last year, those departments actually represent a military force that can become activated under martial law, which is declared by the president just by his whim, so the situation is rather serious, and I don’t wish to just sit by and let it happen with a whimper. So I wrote a book that has a story exploring all these aspects mentioned above and what would happen if a person decided enough was enough, and decided to “fight back.” After three years of writing and securing a publisher, the book is about to be released and it was just the other day that I signed off on the cover designed which you can see below.
It is healthy to push back and question the law and the legal systems tendency to soak citizens for everything they have. Violence is not the answer, because the power is already in all our hands. All we have to do is learn to say “NO” to all these gradual increases in government expansion and make no mistake about it, police forces are government expansion. They are not your friends, or your parents when they pull you over to make sure you’re “behaving safely.” They are arms of corrupt politicians. The community cop in your neighborhood is only as good as the laws they enforce. Do you dear reader think that the politician who made all the laws these COPS are enforcing are good people, or are themselves thieves who use those 900 police departments as their personal sledgehammer of extortive revenue enhancement to embark on their diabolical schemes?
I think you know where I stand and if my readers here think that I dislike the manipulation that goes on in our public schools, they haven’t seen anything of the anger that I feel for the tyranny I see in our police departments and their tendency toward terror disguised as safe keeping. “Click it or Ticket” as a campaign is the symbol of a freedom that is evaporating from American life-like a puddle of water on a hot July morning before the sun has hit it. The water disappears slowly, not even perceptible to the mind’s eye, but a person who has looked at the puddle at 8 AM then leaves, and comes back again at 9 AM will find that the puddle is gone, evaporated before our very eyes, consumed by the heat of the sun and the elements of earth. And our freedom is no different, it is evaporating one cop at a time, one ticket at a time, one lawyer at a time, one judge, one insurance agent, one PR spokesman, one politician at a time till eventually there will be nothing left, and the people of America will wonder how the “Police State” came to be and why they let it happen. At that time, everyone will have forgotten the “Click it or Ticket” campaign because that will seem mild compared to what’s coming.
