Dave Lindsay Links Property Rights & Freedom of Speech
REXDALE. September 4, 2013. In a wide-ranging speech tonight, Dave “The Unlicensed Man” Lindsay, who has appeared in more than 300 courts cases challenging Canada’s Income Tax Law and assisting other rebels fighting for individual rights, linked property rights and freedom of speech.
“I haven’t filed an income tax return since 1996,” Mr. Lindsay explained, ” because it is against Christian principles, it contradicts the Coronation Oath and it imposes usury. The courts won’t touch the Coronation Oath because, if they did, 80 per cent our laws would be ruled illegal.”
In his own failure to file case, he explained: “I was convicted and sentenced to 60 days in jail in Kamloops. My case seems to be the first in Canada where the accused was not fined $1,000 and issued with a compliance order. For me, it’s not a matter of the money. I probably made less than $10,000 in each of those years.”
Perhaps, an explanation for the judge’s unusual sentence is that the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) “is trying to keep me out of court as an agent for defendants.” Last year a judge acknowledged: “Mr. Lindsay’s arguments are thorough and competent.”
“The Crown is supposed to be independent,” he said with disgust, “but they are just thugs for CRA!”
Since 9/11, he explained, there has been a massive erosion of our rights: “The State is waging a constant attack on our rights.”
Holding a pen aloft, Mr. Lindsay explained: “I have the right to use and dispose of this pen. You don’t have to possess something for it to be your property,” he added, referring to someone with a package of pea or carrot seeds who would have the right to the produce these tiny seeds might grow.
Quoting Bastiat in The Law, Mr. Lindsay reminded his audience: “God created us with physical and moral life and faculties. We use our faculties to develop resources.”
“When you come up with thoughts, you have the right to express them. All the information in your brain is yours — it’s your property. The state has no right to interfere with the exchange of your property — your ideas via e-mail, or writing or phone,”
The state, he added, “has no lawful right to spy on us and our intellectual property.”
He noted that a Supreme Court of Canada decision stated: “The Constitution Act of 1982 is not exhaustive;” there are other rights not in there.
“You have the right to use your intellectual thoughts. You cannot fully exercise this right if you’re worried you’re being spied on by government. Laws allowing the state to spy on us is a trespass on our property. We should not even have to prove damages in this regard,” Mr. Lindsay added.
“When you talk to somebody, you are are exercising your right to communicate your property. We have a constitutional right to our ideas and a right to communicate these thoughts as they are our property. The Coronation Oath imposes a constitutional obligation on the Queen not to proclaim laws which violate our rights to property, Privacy is one of the most important things we have. It is absolutely critical to watch what you say in e-mail,” he warned, “until we can stop government spying on us.”
In referring to Richard Warman’s numerous anti-free speech complaints about posting on the Internet, Mr. Lindsay concluded: “I have a constitutional right to hate,” because I have a constitutional right to my property– to my thoughts, whatever they might be.
