This motion was actually filed against a citation and
fine alleging lawn-watering on an improper date and time. And although
the case was dismissed, it was not dismissed on the grounds argued here.
MOTION TO DISMISS WATER CONSERVATION CITATION FOR
IMPROPER LAWN WATERING
The undersigned attorney makes this libertarian motion
to dismiss a "Water Conservation Citation" recently issued for the alleged
watering of a lawn on a day or time not specified by government edict.
This motion to dismiss would be filed with the same arguments if, in addition
to socializing water, the local government also socialized food, clothing,
shelter, oil, phosphate, phone calls, electricity, lumber, land, milk, natural
gas, gypsum, gasoline, football, coal, concrete, chalk, cement, computers,
crops, cable TV, toilet paper (abbreviated hereafter FCSOPHPHELLMNGGGFCCCCCCCTVTP)
or any other goods and services. http://rexcurry.net/waterdismiss.html
FCSOPHPHELLMNGGGFCCCCCCCTVTP are just a few examples
of goods and services, besides water, that government is not supposed to own,
sell or monopolize. If Government sold the other items, it would cause the
same disastrous results that it has caused in water: shortages, misery, soviet
style rationing and the use of police and courts to restrict everyone's purchases
and uses. The more goods and services that government socializes, the
more totalitarian society becomes. http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg
Government water is a true monopoly because the government
bans competitors by law. Bill Gates' computer company is not a monopoly.
The government water monopoly creates the overuse problem
and then tries to solve it with more antidisestablishmentarianism via "tiered
pricing." Tiered pricing is price gouging under a socialistic system.
Only under a free market system do higher prices encourage competitors to
find and provide more water or other alternatives. http://rexcurry.net/tagwhales1.jpg
People who support watering rules are chumps who promote
waste by propping up the socialized system, helping wasteful individuals
evade the true cost of wastefulness, which would otherwise be levied in market
prices among private firms just like other goods.
The government water monopoly is a violation of every
individual's right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," and
a violation of personal freedom and economic freedom. http://rexcurry.net/water.html
The purpose of government is to recognize and protect
private property rights in all resources, and to protect individual property
rights from violence and theft, so that individuals are free to own and
distribute water, food, clothing, shelter, or OPHPHELLMNGGGFCCCCCCCTVTP
and all other goods and services. It is not the purpose of government
to provide water, food, clothing, shelter or other goods and services, and
any attempt by the government to do so always involves theft and violence.
Government water involves police state tactics of soviet style rationing
in its most petty form. Government water involves theft and violence
and is, therefore, illegal. http://rexcurry.net/ecotags.html
