"Swear not" Do not take oaths (ends the state and all its systems of violence).

The first plank of my platform for Texas Governor, "Swear not"/ Do not take oaths (ends the state and all its systems of violence), is closely tied to the third plank of my platform:  "Go not to law," which ends the legal system.  These two concepts from Christ's Sermon on the Mount provided Mahatma Gandhi an authority to instruct the people of India to not sign legal documents.  Together, these ideas helped to break British rule off India in a similar way to what Irwin Schiff worked to do here in America.

Irwin, now sitting in prison for something almost identical to what Mahatma Gandhi did, taught people to circumvent the taxing authorities by what he believed was a legal act to sign a zero tax return.  I go to Gandhiji for an even more complete system of circumvention, but it is drastic.  Sign nothing, swear to nothing.  And there is not a preacher on earth who can argue with you, assuming you are a Christian (I'm Gandhian, not Christian).

This approach will throw your life into a struggle to find ways to pay your bills, but it will work, as we saw in India.  We, together, must move in this direction to end the Keynesian-Marxist state that now threatens the existence of mankind.

Tolstoy, on the last couple of pages of his book, The Kingdom Of God Is Within You, explains that if we try to stop the wagon to which we are all harnessed immediately, we will suffer ("be dragged").  If you can be dragged, I commend you.  If you are like me, you seek to bring all the horses harnessed to the wagon to a halt together, mitigating the damage to each.
