Augustus Invictus: A Declaration of the Failings of the Federal Government

Augustus Invictus

Augustus Invictus

From Florida US Senate candidate Augustus Invictus at his campaign website:

1. The Federal Government has abdicated its power over the creation & implementation of legislation, having handed it to special interest groups.

2. It has allowed Money to usurp the role of Law.

3. It has waged wars on foreign lands to the great detriment of the American people and to the people of the World. What is distant to the American public was not so distant to Serbia, to Iraq, or to Pakistan.

4. It has provided the illegitimate State of Israel with countless billions of dollars in financial aid, weaponry, and military force, to the great detriment of the American people and to the people of the World.

5. It has tread upon the people it would feign to serve, having handed the rights of the Citizen to the corporations.

6. It has allowed corruption to eat away at its systems like acid, such that honest men may no longer become involved with American Government, lest they lose their souls.

7. It has allowed the electoral systems to become governed by money & special interests, rather than by the will of the electorate. Candidates are no longer men chosen to represent the community: they are products to be marketed.

8. It has allowed unrestrained immigration for three generations, to the great detriment of the American people & of the land. Our forefathers came as conquerors: the immigrants of today come as parasites.

9. It has allowed the face of the earth to be desecrated with pollutants & artificialities, with plastics & asphalt, with strip malls & parking lots. No Government in history has profited so greatly from such reckless irresponsibility.

10. It has allowed the Judiciary to be governed not by the will of the Judiciary but by the will of the Media.

11. It has allowed the Media to become a veritable Leviathan, calling “freedom of the press” what is merely the unaccountable influence of money over the minds of an ignorant public.

12. It has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent out swarms of bureaucrats to harass the people, and eat out their substance.

13. It has combined with other governments to subject us to jurisdictions foreign to our Constitution: UN, NATO, NAFTA, et cetera.

14. It has imposed laws & taxes upon its Citizenry, calling “consent” what was coerced assent, the pacified silence of a people threatened by starvation or imprisonment should they stand against the tyranny of special interests.

15. It has abdicated Government here by declaring us “terrorists,” “extremists,” and “enemy combatants” and waging War against us, its own Citizens.

16. It has plundered our seas by handing them to corporations; ravaged our Coasts with pollution; plagued our towns with regulations paid for by special interests; and destroyed the lives of our people.

17. It is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of the Government of a civilized nation.

18. It has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, called them “riots,” and shamed us for our “intolerance” and “lack of charity.”

19. It has allowed the degradation of our ancestral Holy Days in the name of Tolerance, demeaning Christian Rites for fear of the Jews. Where Nativity scenes are allowed, there must stand a menorah of equal visibility.

20. It has allowed the Media to poison the minds of the American People, who would seek only peace between themselves and the Muslim world, save for the Media’s constant decrial of “savagery” and “terrorism,” labels given to the actions of those spiritual & religious persons sick of & enraged by the artificial world created by the Federal Government and the special interests controlling it.

21. It has allowed the Federal Reserve to bring the country to ruin and has allowed those persons running that criminal institution to profit greatly thereby.

22. It has allowed so-called development upon the earth such that the Wilderness hardly exists any longer. Where National Parks have been created, there have roads been paved for the admission of thousands of tourists. Where no law preserves the land, the forests merely await the coming urban sprawl.

23. It has established laws to protect at any cost the survival of the weakest of the Citizenry, having forsaken the first duty of Government: the welfare of the People.

24. It has promoted with great vehemence the doctrines of mass democracy, blind tolerance, and mandatory guilt for decades upon decades, such that the individual Citizen is expected to worship the lowest of humanity and abandon any inclinations he may have toward elitism.

25. It has abandoned its eugenics programs & elitist mindset in favor of a decadent ideology that rejects the beauty of strength and demands the exponential growth of the weakest, the least intelligent, and the most diseased.

26. It has allowed & encouraged the destruction of wildlife habitats in favor of this ever-teeming, ever-expanding population of Untouchable Americans, providing federal funding for the “development” of the land and the raising of apartment complexes, shopping malls, and fast food restaurants.

27. It has promoted the defamation of our country’s greatest heroes in our children’s classrooms, such as Columbus, the great mariner, a man of vision & bravery, now regarded as a genocidal maniac, and Jefferson, the polymath statesman & great promoter of freedom, known now as the degenerate slave rapist.

28. It has promoted in those same classrooms the idolatrous worship of a different breed of lesser men, such as Alex Haley, who made a fortune by conning the country into sympathy when he plagiarized a novel and passed it off as fact, and Martin Luther King, Jr., whose FBI files are still under seal for the embarrassment it would cause all those persons profiting from his civil sainthood.

29. It has waged a War on Drugs for its own monetary profit and for the monetary profit of State law enforcement, allowing the criminal bands of the Drug Enforcement Agency and all other narcotics agencies to ruin the lives of millions of the Citizenry.

30.It has allowed the expansion of the power of the Internal Revenue Service, so that no man, woman, or child may escape its greedy clutches.

31. It has sought to establish a secular religion based upon mass democracy, absolute social equality, and the sanctity of bureaucracy. The Constitution is its Holy Scripture, the lawyers its priesthood, the “civil rights leaders” its saints & prophets.

32. It has sought to prohibit the ownership of firearms by law-abiding Citizens, farcically citing the violent actions of slaves’ descendants as justification therefore.

33. It has sought to fund wars for the benefit of oil companies & Israel by taxing the American Citizenry.

34. It has sought to invade the privacy of the Citizenry under the pretext of protecting the people.

35. It has sought to violate the requirements of due process of law to such a degree & in so many varied circumstances that it would require an Aeon to list them.

36. It has sought to perpetuate a failed legal system that condemns the sale of narcotics but allows pedophiles to walk free.

37. It has sought to swindle the Citizenry with the establishment of a convoluted, many-tiered system of courts that creates the illusion of oversight but which only serves to masturbate the egos of five thousand petty judges & magistrates hell-bent on demonstrating their erudition & scholarship in this ridiculous legal system.

38. It has sought to inflict cruel & unusual punishments upon the Citizenry & upon the people of the World, both in & out of the courtroom.

39. It has sought to define the rights of the People as ‘what the Federal Government will allow’.

40. It has sought to annihilate the rights of the States by diminishing what were once sovereign entities until they might become mere administrative districts.

41. It has sought to conquer nations by use of its wealth but has refused the primary justification of conquest and the primary responsibility of the conqueror: just government of the conquered.

42. It has allowed the destruction of communities by encouraging urban sprawl and a culture of technological obsession.

43. It has allowed catastrophic deforestation, water & air pollution, and natural resource wastage in the Holy Names of Progress, Industry, & Profit.

44. It has allowed the national debt to grow to an amount absolutely unfathomable to all but mathematicians, a debt that can only be paid by generations to come, if it can ever be paid at all.

45. It has provided billions upon billions of dollars in financial aid to the Third World, helping them not to improve their quality of life but to breed more children dependent on foreign aid.

46. It has colluded with US Corporations in robbing the resources of Latin America, thereby keeping the region in poverty rather than engaging in honest dealings with our neighbors.

47. It has allowed the expansion of the powers of the DHS, FBI, CIA, NSA, et alia, such that the Citizenry have cause to wonder whether it is the beneficiary of a just Government concerned for the safety of the people – or a conquered populace subject to the tyranny of an unjust Government that must have recourse to force once it is realized by the people just how monstrous its oppressors have become.

48. It has effectively disrupted space exploration, cutting funds to NASA in order to throw more money at such practical things as creating more roads, more bridges, and more airports.

49. It has allowed the rampant growth of the power of pharmaceutical companies, which have usurped much of the role of the FDA and which push worse drugs onto the populace with greater force & more sinister intent than any Mexican cartel.

50. It has allowed corporations to poison the food & water.

51. It has sought to keep us weak, stupid, & impotent.

52. It has sought to keep us hobbled by its bureaucratic laws & smokescreen social issues.

53. It has sought to keep us in subjection to special interests.

54. It has sought to keep us enslaved to Money, which master promises both comfort & convenience at the mere price of a soul.

55. It has sought to keep us from the truth: that the Federal Government has become the greatest Enemy to the welfare of America and the World.

    Number 8 is impressive. This guy wants immigrants to be conquerors, not parasites. So, in other words, he’s against immigration because the immigrants don’t kill the American people.

    Thanks God he has no chance of winning the LPF’s nomination.

  2. NewFederalist

    It would seem to me that since Tom Knapp now lives in Florida this is shaping up as a perfect race for NOTA.

  3. Election Addict

    “8. … Our forefathers came as conquerors: the immigrants of today come as parasites.”

    “19. It has allowed the degradation of our ancestral Holy Days in the name of Tolerance, demeaning Christian Rites for fear of the Jews.”

    “23. It has established laws to protect at any cost the survival of the weakest of the Citizenry …”

    “24. It has promoted with great vehemence the doctrines of mass democracy, blind tolerance, and mandatory guilt for decades upon decades, such that the individual Citizen is expected to worship the lowest of humanity and abandon any inclinations he may have toward elitism.”

    My goodness.

  4. Joe Wendt

    I appreciate the fact Augustus has the courage to speak his mind. I agree with about 90% of what he has pointed out on this list, and he certainly has my vote on election day.

  5. Thane Eichenauer (@ilovegrover)

    I find item 9 to be most worrisome. Given that Augustus Invictus is running for office in a state a thousand plus miles away from Arizona he really doesn’t worry me all that much but should you wish to support the idea that he isn’t a good choice I recommend that you visit:
    http://nota2016.org/2014/07/19/outreach-bump-1-each-one-reach-one-or-100/
    I imagine that one of these days there will be a Florida LP event that will invite him to speak. Such will likely cause more articles about him to be produced.

  6. Jeff Davidson

    Hi Joe Wendt – Do you favor eugenics? For me, that’s a deal killer even if I agreed with everything else.

  7. Joe Wendt

    Hi Jeff Davidson- NO, I didn’t say I did. However, I agree with him that our government has adopted policies that demand the exponential growth of the weakest, the least intelligent, and the most diseased. I believe improved educational programs and immigration policies could correct that problem. But, I am not going to fault man for his position, however since the government subsidizes black genocide through Planned Parenthood, genocide and apartheid through Israel, and aides & abets some of the most oppressive regimes in the world (China, Cuba, insert other country here), your point is irrelevant.

  8. Election Addict

    So saddening that a majority of important points (from Invictus’ text itself) are grouped with such nonsense. That’s how every true sociopath gains support. Usually I would have to wait until they’ve done something as president to find out for sure, but Invictus has already made a convincing case for being one.

    And naturally his unspoken solutions for much of the rest of it are unworkable, but that’s neither here nor there.

  9. paulie

    For those of us who are here all the time, yes, but there are some people reading the comments on this article that didn’t read the other past threads. We have a lot more lurkers than commenters.

  10. Austin Cassidy

    Everyone keeps throwing out NOTA. There is no NOTA. The Libertarian Party of Florida’s Senate nominee will be chosen in a primary open to all registered Libertarian voters, same as all other parties in Florida including the Republicans and Democrats. The nominee will be whoever qualifies to get on the primary ballot and then gets the most votes in the ensuing primary. If only one candidate qualifies for the primary, that person wins and becomes the nominee.

    It’ll be interesting.

  11. Andy Craig

    If there are Florida Libertarians who want somebody other than Roger Stone, they need to find a candidate to run against him who isn’t Augustus Invictus.

  12. NewFederalist

    Austin Cassidy for U.S. Senate! Let’s roger up for the man who is only a stone’s throw away from making sure Invictus doesn’t inflict us!

  13. Andy Craig

    “I would not bet on Stone actually running, or on Invictus actually qualifying for the primary.”

    …making it all the more important that LPF have another candidate.

  14. paulie

    I could be wrong, but I think the LP actually fails to qualify any candidates for most such races. I know there have been a few, but I believe there have also been US Senate races where the LP has not qualified any candidates at all in Florida. My impression is that the qualification barrier for the primary is non-trivial. If I’m wrong someone can correct me.

  15. paulie

    It’s not easy for them to find a candidate or several who is/are willing and able to do all the work to qualify for the primary. That may be why they are so open to Stone.

  16. Austin Cassidy

    I’m almost positive the LPF will run a candidate. Adrian Wyllie’s success in last year’s gubernatorial race, pulling almost 4% and a whole lot of media coverage, pretty much ensures that the party will want to run someone statewide.

    The barrier to entry is a fee of approximately $10,000. However, the party could choose to help cover the cost for someone, as has happened in the past.

  17. NewFederalist

    “Not a chance of me running for anything.” – Austin Cassidy

    Almost Shermanesque. Well said! Actually, I was just trying to be clever but failed miserably in the attempt.

  18. paulie

    The barrier to entry is a fee of approximately $10,000.

    That, or a signature barrier that is even more difficult in practice. That’s a lot for a state LP even in a big state, so obiously they would prefer candidate(s) who can do it without the party’s help or at least mostly on their own.

  19. Joe Wendt

    Augustus is a very talented lawyer, who has done his best to appease the concerns of the peanut gallery to no avail. It’s very disheartening to see a good man lambasted for his opinions. At least he’s trying to address the issues, as opposed to Stone who hasn’t done anything of the sort yet.

    On another note, please George Phillies, move down to Florida and fix the LPF.

    If endorsing eugenics and denouncing the jews (on his own campaign website) is doing his best to appease the peanut gallery who were concerned about his previous remarks endorsing eugencis and suggesting that women and racial minorities be disenfranchised (quoted previously by Adrian Wyllie), then clearly his best isn’t good enough.

    I have a 5 step process for determining whether I support a candidate for public office.

    Step 1: Is the candidate batshit crazy?

    I needn’t bother with steps 2-5 in this case.

  21. Gene Berkman

    I read the whole thing, and found the one sentence that Mr Invictus left out, but apparently intended for this piece: ” Don’t be stupid, be smarty! Come and join the Nazi Party!”

    Those would be his words, not mine.
