Dear Editor,

To those who think they (those who have a position in government if it be Federal, state, state enacted) are above the law to not follow their oath or affirmation of office let alone their pledge when facing the Constitutional flag, as concerning our Republican Form of Government, and to those who riot or otherwise protest in order to do likewise against our 1787/1788 Organic Meaning of Constitutional Law for the United States of America have come under the unfortunate reprimand by Samuel Adams, father of the American Revolution, as noted below:

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your council or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." 

Roger Roth
