There is a lie being spread that treating disrespectful behavior with open disdain is to disrespect authority — In truth, rebelling against the rule of unjust law in order to oppose tyranny and immorality is by action to show utmost respect for law, order and justice. It is, and always has been, the epitome of human courage.
Question and challenge government all the time — Otherwise they will trample you every time. The idea that we must be patriotic of the State itself, rather than the freedom we hold dear, is a lie.

Seim works as an artist and photographer. Earlier this year, he was traveling with his family along HWY-70E in New Mexico when he drove up on an Department of Homeland Security inland checkpoint near Alamogordo, some 80 miles from the Mexican border.
Gavin stopped his car, video recorder rolling, and when the Border Patrol agent approached, he asked if he was being detained.
“On what grounds am I being detained?”
