	"Governments are instituted - deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed," 

	So what does "to govern" mean?


	"to exercise continuous sovereign authority over"


	"to rule over by right of authority: " 

	As you can see, "to govern" (id est, what governments do) is to "exercise authority" and "authority" is something that must be obeyed. There's no 'consent' in obeying authority. Authority and consent are self-evidently antithetical concepts.

	So there you have it. In case it wasn't clear enough that Amerikkka was the freest nation on the planet because it was founded as an outright SLAVE society and enslaved tens of millions if not hundreds of millions. Which is of course perfectly legitimate because Slavery is Freedom.
