We hold this truth to be self evident ! ! ! Where is the legal nexus that compels the compliance of an innocent third party; or, makes the servant a slave master with authority to license (might does not make right); or, gives the right to one party to inflict another on basis of a made-up victimless crime, etc., etc., etc. ! ! ! ? IT DOES NOT EXIST ! ! !
