I would, to offer a balanced approach, also recommend reading the books “Decision Points” by George W. Bush and “In My Time” by Dick Cheney. I should note that—yes—I have read each of the books listed.

Like the Tom Thumb stories, Paine's narrative proceeds from vulnerability to
strength, from subjection to self-government. As in Tom Thumb's experience,
representational techniques make this progress possible. Words and numbers
extend beyond the limits of the body, beyond its frailties or incapacities due to
size or power, supplying a way of imagining better conditions for the body. To the
third edition of the pamphlet, Paine appended a list of calculations of the cost of
building an ...

But the author's implication that the Constitution never saw itself as a means of
constructing “the just powers of government” upon the “consent of the governed
makes the Declaration as an action just a street gang rumble. ... By their very
limitation upon the governed's consent, the Founders implicitly saw beyond the
limit into Infinity, not a 'god,' but the incomprehensible mystery we all sense every
moment of our conscious life that is pregnant with all manner of unqualified

In short, revoking consent does not dissolve obligation and granting consent
does not produce it. It follows that neither legitimacy nor obligation can rest on the
unqualified consent of the governed. Having conceded these points, Pitkin's task
is to provide a new explanation of the connections among consent, legitimacy,
and obligation. Although obligation does not stem from the consent of the
governed, she argues that it stems from the legitimacy of government, which can
be assessed ...

been used — cannot legally be violated without his consent. As Locke argued: "
For I have truly no property in that which another can by right take from me when
he pleases against my consent" (Locke 1988: 188). In relation to the legitimacy of
government, realizing the liberal notions of individual liberty and equality
demands that the institutional arrangements that regulate citizens' behavior are
those to which each citizen has voluntarily agreed to be subjected; this
agreement can ...

Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us
has the capacity to govern someone else?” Reagan then linked this concept to
an explicit eVort to reconstruct constitutional authority: “Our government has no
power ex- cept that granted it by the people. It is time to check and reverse the
growth of government which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of
the governed. It is my intention to curb the size and influence of the Federal
establishment ...

It gave Congress power to override the veto of the President, though that veto
was expressly given, thus showing that in the last analysis the will of the people,
speaking through the legislative power, should govern. Had the convention
supposed the courts would assume such power, it would certainly have given
Congress some review over judicial action and certainly would not have placed
the judges irretrievably beyond “the consent of the governed” and regardless of
the popular ...

We are a nation that has a government—not the other way around. And this
makes us special among the nations of the earth. Our government has no power
except that granted it by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of
government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the
governed. We have every right to dream heroic dreams. Those who say that we'
re in a time when there are not heroes; theyjust don't know where to look. We are
a nation ...

Government beyond the consent of the governed is tyranny and theft.” While
David Lane supplies the driving political ideology of white survival behind
Wotansvolk, Gardell's research shows that Ron McVan has developed its artistic,
devotional and philosophical content. Born in Philadelphia in 1950, McVan
moved in the world of rock music and worked as an artist. Religiously motivated,
he was drawn to Buddhism until he read Ben Klassen's books Nature's Eternal
