The following is a cover letter to a copy of a notice given to sheriff Jimmy Brown of Lawrence County in central Tennessee. The writer is Arthur J. Hirsch, the “the Fiddle Man of Lawrence County,” who is appealing convictions on four counts for exercising constitutionally guaranteed rights. Mr. Hirsch is giving local officials notice about the limited scope of the Tennessee transportation law which applies only to some users of the roadway. The Tennessee highway patrol filed the criminal charges against him that were tried in December 2015.
Travel vs. transportation
Dear Sheriff Brown, As a reminder, please take notice that the ONLY reason for civil government to exist is to secure and protect the naturally inherent, unalienable rights of the individual, endowed by the Creator at birth, i.e., life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (property).
Individual rights protection is the only legitimate reason for government to exist. “The duty of this court, as of every judicial tribunal, is limited to determining rights of persons or of property.” TYLER v. JUDGES OF COURT OF REGISTRATION, 179 U.S. 405, 409 (1900)
“We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness — That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” Declaration of Independence of 1776. Said rights supersede and are antecedent to all legislative statutes.
A peaceable effort
This notice is a peaceable, constitutional effort to end the oppressive misapplication of TCA Title 55 to non-commercial users of the public highways. Thousands of people are wrongfully given “civil death sentences” by having their so-called “driving
privileges” suspended when they are not engaged in a for-profit activity on the public highways.
Many eyes are watching you to see how you will respond to the TRUTH with respect to the clear distinction between TRAVEL (i.e., the liberty right to freely travel privately on the highways), and TRANSPORTATION (i.e., the regulable, taxable permissive “privilege” upon application to engage in a for-profit commercial activity by “motor vehicle” on the public highway – Title 55).
May God bless you as you do what is right for the people you serve, pursuant to your oath of office.
