By definition, a Free Press is an Armed Press. Welcome to Armed Press, commentaries on the necessary evolution of our Authority in Defense of Inherent Individual Rights, Liberty and Self-Determination.

Our Authority to establish and rule Government is inherent in, and by, our existence. These powers are expressed cooperatively through our associations and communications with each other.

The American Declaration of Independence asserts this right to self govern and reveals our purpose in establishing governing institutions.

The federal Constitution defines an agent of limited authority and restricted powers for duties common to the States and People of the United States of America.

The First Amendment to the federal Constitution denies any government power to stifle brutal discussion and organization to discipline, alter or remove government and
is presumed to preserve our inherent right to assemble, discuss and alter the institutions and offices of our servant government. "The government shall make no law . . ." is an absolute, not conditional, prohibition on government conduct.

The Second Amendment
to the federal Constitution preserves our armed power to defend our debates if and when we consider, plan and implement change or removal of government. Any government power to control arms in the hands of the People. ". . . shall not be infringed". is an absolute mandate and again, fails as a "conditional" prohibition on federal conduct.

Without these fundamental powers reserved exclusively to the people of the states, the term "self-governed", regardless of any form claimed by representatives, cannot describe our society.
Our Power to impose our authority for self-rule undeniably includes violence to suppress usurpers and coerce defiant servants.

Our Authority to create, revise or remove "government" is fundamental to the security and general welfare of free men and women of a free society.

Our representatives and public servants owe allegiance to us, not we to them. It is our right to command and control their conduct and it is their duty to obey.

It is our ever-present duty to preserve our power to command when government defies our authority to guide, limit and correct their conduct.

The 16th President of the United States once declared, "Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government and form a new one that suits them better.". I emphacise the requirement for the power to coerce.
Lacking a credible threat of violence, petitions for redress or reformation will always go unrespected and unanswered.

Authority alone cannot assure the obedience of powerful and ambitious men and their institutions.
There can be no valid authority by government to prohibit speech which entertains restrictions on governments by whatever means are necessary.

All laws which restrict our open and contentious debate or that work to diminish our ability to enforcc our authority to implement changes opposed by the government must be deemed and denounced as null and void from their inception.

The Press, in any pragmatic sense, means anyone
with the means to communicate concepts or information
by any means possible for private or public purpose.

By necessity. a Free Press, is an Armed Press.
