It Isn’t Supposed to be This Way
By Scott Stafne
Frank (aka Frankie) Schnarrs, a client and friend, died at the hands of Thurston County officials yesterday evening. Particularly its Prosecutor Jon Tunheim, its Auditor Mary Hall, and Superior Court Judges Murphy and Lanese. State officials Governor Jay Inslee and Attorney General Bob Ferguson failed my friend, and the people of Washington, by not ensuring Thurston County officials complied with their duties under state law.
These public officials refused to comply with the Torrens Act, which was passed in 1907, to protect landowners in Washington from money lenders and debt buyers who attempted to steal land based on fraudulent documents, secret liens, and hidden equities. I have written often on this subject recently because these officials have knowingly refused to comply with the law. I have provided links to some of those writings below in the bibliography section.
It is difficult to get Frankie out of my mind.
And it is impossible to control my feelings that jerk from sadness, to horror, to fury, to a painful nothingness of a person who has watched the values he’s spent a lifetime trying to preserve, dissolve into an evil darkness that makes sleep unattainable.
Scholars debate whether Alexander Hamilton or James Madison first wrote the following text; However, no matter which man wrote these words there is little doubt they set forth a basic premise this once great Republic was founded upon:
Justice is the end of government. It is the end of civil society. It ever has been and ever will be pursued until it be obtained, or until liberty be lost in the pursuit. In a society under the forms of which the stronger faction can readily unite and oppress the weaker, anarchy may as truly be said to reign as in a state of nature, where the weaker individual is not secured against the violence of the stronger; and as, in the latter state, even the stronger individuals are prompted, by the uncertainty of their condition, to submit to a government which may protect the weak as well as themselves; so, in the former state, will the more powerful factions or parties be gradually induced, by a like motive, to wish for a government which will protect all parties, the weaker as well as the more powerful.
There is no justice left in Thurston County – or in most of the United States – for most us. People like Frankie, his wife Cheri, my brother Todd, and all those to whom our Creator gave this gift of life are all harmed by a government that was created to serve us..
It wasn’t supposed to be this way, and it is important that all of us know it.
It’s now necessary we stand together against an out of control government intent on hurting its people. The United States Constitution, which is supposed to be the organic law of these United States, is based upon the social compact theory of governance which established the people of this nation are sovereign. We the people, only delegate our sovereignty to the government for the purposes of achieving justice by protecting each person’s natural rights.
Jean Jacques Rousseau in his book, The Social Contract or Principles ofPolitical Right Book I influenced our framers structuring of our Constitution toprotect the “natural rights” of each of us to promote equality before the law.
In this book Rousseau wrote:
that, instead of destroying natural inequality, the fundamental compact substitutes, for such physical inequality as nature may have set up between men, an equality that is moral and legitimate, and that men who may be unequal in strength or intelligence, become every one equal by convention and legal right.
Rousseau observes, and our framers understood, what the politicians and judges of Thurston County and Washington State have forgotten or never learned; namely that “[u]nder bad governments, this equality [among persons] is only … illusory: it serves only to keep the pauper in his poverty and the rich man in the position he has usurped.”
According to Rousseau the social compact of government “is advantageous to men only when all have something and none too much.”
Courts which do not read the Constitution so as to promote justice among the people repudiate the purposes upon which this nation was founded.
If our government won’t follow its own laws, then we must replace those who betray our sovereignty.
Let’s not let Frankie, or any of the other people who have been euthanized by government officials for the benefit of money lenders and debt buyers, die in vain.
It is time to take our country back!!!
Writings about the Torrens Act:
Schnarrs v Thurston County Judges, Washington Supreme Court Case No. 95545-0
Ruling by Supreme Court Commissioner that Thurston County and its judges as State officers only recently started complying with the Torrens Act so Frank’s mandamus action against the judges was moot even after his home had been taken in violation of the law.
Schnarr’s ruling to modify Supreme Court Commissioner’s ruling mandamus action was moot based on Thurston County’s prosecutor’s fabrication of evidence that the judges had complied with the Torrens Act.
