Parole the federal pirates!

All non-treasonous non-counterfeiting non-pirates need to be paroled Retweet

Criminal punishment was supposed to be left to the states. The Constitution enumerates only seven federal crimes for private persons. Among these are piracy, counterfeiting, treason, and enslaving another human being.

Tell your representatives to…

After you’ve sent your letter, please consider making a contribution. An Action Item requires both staff time and infrastructure. This (or any given) Dispatch costs approximately $675, and more if we promote it to find other voices to join you. Our goal is to have every one of our Dispatches covered by our wonderful, monthly pledgers.

Remember, your support makes Downsize DC possible.

Thank you for being an ACTIVE DC Downsizer,

Jim Babka, President
