Let's Go Dutch


As a criminal defense attorney in the U.S., I represent people charged with prostitution, pot, hashish, and hallucinogenic mushrooms. As I write this, I am in the Netherlands, where those activities are not prosecuted. The Netherlands Libertarian Party has invited me to speak at the Hague about U.S. drug laws. I advocate repealing prostitution and drug laws to make the U.S. freer than the Netherlands.

In Amsterdam, an American can march up to a 'bartender' and announce: 'I want to buy some hashish and then I'm going to smoke it.' An American can smoke it on outdoor terraces in front of the police. An American can hire a Dutch prostitute next door.

As a criminal defense attorney I cannot advise U.S. clients to commit crimes nor how to commit crimes. However, I can tell them what a lot of Americans do: vacation in Amsterdam.

It is inspiring to walk into a Dutch smoke shop and see U.S. citizens quietly engaging in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is embarrassing to see less personal freedom in my country, the 'land of the free.'

U.S. laws are sometimes defended with the phrase 'Love it or leave it!' Many Americans leave on frequent holidays in Holland. Many travel specifically to flout U.S. laws.

Of course, some of my clients can't travel, and they are arrested for the same acts that their freer neighbors commit abroad.

Judging by the massive drug use statistics in the U.S., a Hollander might think that the U.S. has no drug laws. But the U.S. sets world records for imprisoning peaceful people who use recreational substances that are not alcohol, tobacco or coffee.

Government pushes tobacco with tax subsidies at the same time that it threatens tobacco smokers on private property. The government pushes specific sports recreation with taxes for socialized football stadiums, while it jails prostitutes and even nude dancers. Alcohol, tobacco, coffee and football are pushed against other recreational competition.

Our government fails to distinguish non-violent consensual acts from theft and violence. Our government commits theft and violence against peaceful people. Many jurors do not know that they have the absolute power to acquit if they believe the law is wrong.

As a criminal defense attorney, I am often asked how I sleep at night after representing people who are guilty. I sleep like a log after I protect peaceful people from guilty government. My counter-question is 'how can anyone sleep after defending the statist quo?'

Let's fight government's antidisestablishmentarianism. Let's go Dutch.

RexCurry.net is the site that exposes the Pledge of Allegiance as the origin of Adolf Hitler's "Nazi" salute under the National Socialist German Workers Party. The site also archives other discoveries of the historian and symbologist Dr. Rex Curry, author of the book "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets."

Francis Bellamy (cousin of author Edward Bellamy) was a socialist in the Nationalism movement and authored the Pledge of Allegiance (1892). http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html

The early pledge began with a military salute that was then extended out toward the flag. In practice, the second gesture was performed palm-down with a stiff-arm when the military salute was merely pointed out at the flag. Thus, the military salute led to the Nazi salute in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of the United States. http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

It was not an ancient Roman salute. That is a myth debunked by Dr. Curry, who showed that the myth came from the Pledge.

American national socialists (including Edward Bellamy), in cooperation with Madame Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society, popularized the use of the Swastika (an ancient symbol) as a modern symbol for socialism long before the symbol was adopted by the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis). http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

The Bellamys influenced the National Socialist German Workers Party and its dogma, rituals and symbols (e.g. robotic collective chanting to flags; and the modern use of the swastika as crossed S-letters for "Socialism" under German National Socialism). Similar alphabetical symbolism was used under the NSDAP for the "SS" division, the "SA," the "NSV," et cetera and similar symbolism is visible today as the Volkswagen VW logo. http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a1.html

The Bellamys wanted the government to take over all food, clothing, shelter, goods and services and create an "industrial army" to impose their "military socialism." See the video documentary at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4

It is the same dogma that led to the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~60 million killed under the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; ~50 million under the Peoples' Republic of China; ~20 million under the National Socialist German Workers' Party. http://rexcurry.net/socialists.html

Today, the flag symbolizes authoritarianism in the USA. The historical facts above explain the enormous size and scope of government today, and the USA's police state, and why it is growing so rapidly. They are reasons for minarchy: massive reductions in government, taxation, spending and socialism.
