This is a response to the letter sent by the Arkansas Department of Health "experts" published in the Citizen, May 3.
In their letter, ADH "experts" stated, "experts around the world have provided strong evidence that water fluoridation is both safe and effective. There is no link between community water fluoridation and any harmful health problem ... fluoride is a natural element found in rocks, soil, fresh water and the ocean."
For the average person, fluoride is fluoride. But the above "highly educated experts" confuse calcium fluoride which is good for bones, teeth, and found in nature, with sodium fluoride, an EPA regulated hazardous waste byproduct from the aluminum smelting industry that was found to increase suggestibility and mild retardation, as well as weakening the immune system when administered in small doses to humans over time.
Fluoridated water is banned for public consumption in many countries including China, Japan, Germany, Norway, Denmark and Sweden. Why is our leadership attempting to force sodium fluoride poisoning upon the citizenry?
Since the wise citizens of the Carroll-Boone Water District have (twice) elected not to fluoridate our drinking water, our "elected experts" apparently have forgotten a couple of definitions and articles of law which should make the picture perfectly clear for literate citizen and their representatives:
Election: "Indicates the political will of the citizenry." Black's Law Dictionary
Republic: "A government where the citizens have the supreme authority and are entitled to vote elected representatives and officers who are governing according to law." Webster's
Dictatorship: "A government ... where absolute control is held by leadership." Webster's
Treason: "The offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which one owes allegiance or to kill or injure the sovereign or his family." Webster's
Genocide: "The deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political or cultural group." Webster's
There are no provisions in the U.S. Constitution for federal or state regulation of our water supply -- or food supply, or medicine or education. Our officials do not have authority to mandate where those powers are not specified. Since citizens of the Carroll/Boone Water District have twice elected not to fluoridate, this forced poisoning of the citizenry is an act of treason.
The Carroll-Boone Water District Board is under no obligation to follow unconstitutional law, as is clearly stated in the 16th American Jurisprudence, Second Edition, Section 177.
CBWD board members may lawfully disregard this unconstitutional mandate. If the state attempts to prosecute the board for non-compliance, the board may safely fall upon the support of the citizens of our state and district.
Power of the citizens to void illegal laws was given in the U.S. Constitution (Article III, Sect. 2, Clause 3; Bill of Rights, Article VI & VII), "The Trial of all Crimes, except in Cases of Impeachment, shall be by Jury; and such trial shall be held in the State where the said Crimes shall have been committed."
"In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed."
Since a jury trial requires a unanimous decision, only one vote of "not guilty" is required to nullify the bad law. Trial by jury is where "government by the consent of the governed" actually works. Since we are not generally taught this, we usually end up with a dictatorship by default -- "For lack of essential knowledge, my people perish."
"The jury has an ... unreviewable and unreversible power ... to acquit in disregard of the instructions on the law given by the trial judge." -- U. S. v. Dougherty, 1972, from the Supreme Court of the United States.
Citizens used trial by jury to successfully void Alcohol Prohibition as well as Fugitive Slave Laws. Government is powerless to enforce laws that are not supported by citizens, provided citizens know of their obligation to void illegal or unjust laws, prohibitions and mandates by using their jury power.
The revolution has already happened, and the hard part is done! All we have to do now is study and follow our law; a citizen government cannot exist without the citizens knowing how it works.
If the governor or the Congress continues to force this poisoning on citizens after being given this public notice, they are knowingly committing an act of treason, an attempted genocide of the citizenry, and should be lawfully and permanently removed from office.
