James Weeks was born in Michigan, and has lived in Livingston County virtually all of his life. From a young age James always loved freedom. He has dedicated his life to achieving a free society, free from an omnipotent state that seems to wish to squeeze every last drop of freedom out of our lives. James advocates for individual liberty over the wishes of the collective. A free society based on individual rights and voluntary consent. For all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives; They have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose. The only proper function of government, under the condition of consent of the people, is the protection of the people's right to life, liberty, and property. Anything beyond that, is illegitimate.
