“Positive” Government Rights De-constituting America

Reprinted from the original post at http://forums.traditionalamericanmovement.com

Thanks to decades of progressive education, media propaganda, and politicians from both parties that have ignored their oaths to uphold our US Constitution, we may now say we are nearly de-constituted as a country that once was based on individual freedom and our property rights, in a society which both revered and observed the rule of law.

Preamble of the De-constituted
We the Central Authority of the Subservient States, in Order to form Enduring Powers, establish arbitrary Justice, insure domestic Obedience, provide for the Social Compact, promote the Standardized Consensus Agenda, and to secure and redistribute the Property of the Demos, do command, and so order, this Manifesto as Supreme authority over the subjects of the Socialist States of America from this time forward.

Far fetched? Which part is not already true?

Our federal government, populated and dominated by socialist ideologies, is dictating what the states may or may not do, as well as us citizens, as if we were subjects commanded to obey, instead of the source of our elected representatives authority. This dictating attitude of office holders is heard in their words, and seen through their actions.

The Rule of Law, along with the elements that are required for true justice, have been usurped by the rule of men. The laws have grown so numerous, and so complex as to not be known even generally, much less in any specifics by most of the people. Increasingly we see these laws are applied unequally, to politically favored groups for either exemption or benefit, and to dis-favored groups as punishments and inhibitors of freedom. Not only is the individual left largely unprotected now in favor of the arbitrary “greater good” of society, new laws are damning to the individual… and his rights. Success of the productive is often met by confiscation, overbearing regulation, and even more laws of men which are meant mainly to siphon off a maximum value for the longest time possible, and redistribute those proceeds to ensure political power for themselves. Judicial review is no longer conducted by impartial or independent judges.

Irresponsible social promises have been made now for generations, by those willing to promise anything, without being held responsible for their false advertising, which in turn has made the notion of a ‘social compact’ between the government and the people seem almost natural for people to expect, and many feel this promised arrangement is somehow superior to the idea of true self sufficiency and the liberty to pursue ones own happiness. Evidently these people have never thought it through far enough to realize that one cannot both retain responsibility for determining one’s own path, and simultaneously enjoy no responsibilities for their own welfare.

If we are to retain our ability to demand our consent for a system of self-government, as a representative Republic, we must elect those that understand the elements of good law to be our lawmakers. Otherwise we end up with the rule of men, uncertainty, decline, and worst of all, the end of our liberty.

Our Founders understood what the Rule of Law consists of. Our elected officials need to remember these elements too. The rule of law must be known (knowable) in general to all, have a certainty (a law we count on to last without changing, and have a sound legal framework. It must be applied with equality, with an absence of any government discretionary power which always threatens the Rule of Law. It must have impartial independent judicial review. It must acknowledge its authority is only derived by protecting our individual rights.

The recent Obamacare law is a prime example of what happens when the Rule of Law has been eviscerated and usurped by the arbitrary rule of men. It is an unprecedented massive, unknowable law that was both rushed and rammed through Congress by a majority against the will of the people, which tramples on individual rights, is already undergoing numerous changes, will generate volumes of new rules, is creating uncertainty, is full of both discretionary powers by government and exemptions for government and others of favored status, and much of it is not subjected to any independent judicial review or even congressional review. Life itself will be put at risk by its provisions, which do include a “death panel” based on costs of services.

So we can see that the fictitious Preamble of the De-constituted above is not far fetched at all. This is however how those in power now exercise their duties. This is the power and purpose they are actively seeking by any means possible, and they likely hope to pronounce a similar manifesto of control when they know that they have crushed any resistance to them. They have massively abused their power to the point of controlling us, by ignoring good law, constitutional constraints to limit power, the sovereignty of the individual, and substituting arbitrary rules of their own making. All the positive good born of freedom which our fellow citizens, current and past, have built upon to grow this society into the greatest country, is now in jeopardy of being lost forever unless we end this rogue regime of post constitutionalists and any like it.

It is not too late though, unless of course, We the People ignore what Edmond Burke stated;

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is that good men (and women) do nothing”

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Objects to be Manipulated Into Serfdom

Objects to be Manipulated Into Serfdom

ROC Editorial
[Appears in Newsletter ROC Issue #14-2011]

Objects. That’s us, the American people. The people can be manipulated by words. Those engaged in the perpetual game of acting as Santa Claus, for anyone that has their hands out, in order to retain power for themselves, have shown this to be their attitude to the citizens of this nation. So after decades of this style of governing, our country is in real trouble. Too many people have been partners in this tango of deceit.

It would be one thing if those dispersing all the goodies were the actual owners of the treasures in the first place, and they wished to have them redistributed among themselves, but of course this is not, and has never been, the case. They need productive makers and innovators to loot from. They need the power to force others to comply.

What is happening here now is what has happened around the world by people who were gullible and susceptible to the words of manipulators who hide behind a paper thin veneer of legitimacy based upon their ability to exploit the hardships of the truly needy.

It is sickening to watch so many of our fellow countrymen either enable or participate in this despicable behavior that is so immoral, and so destructive to our society. It is disgraceful to think of all the efforts devoted to the basic tenet of lying your way through life to protect a power sharing racket, based on creating alliances for the purpose of enabling legalized theft and redistributing stolen goods. Yet we see so much evidence of this everyday. From voter fraud, hidden government records, judges ignoring objectivity, outright fabrications like global warming, backroom deals of bribery and extortion, all of it meant to consolidate power over other people. Even those we used to hold in high esteem seem to have no problem with lying their way through life, as we recently witnessed in Wisconsin with doctors writing false sick notes to the unionized teachers that actively sought them out.

This week has given us some hope however. We see real leaders stepping forward and offering a just, compassionate and logical path that ends the perpetual looting game, and restores accountable and responsible government that the good people are finally demanding. The Tea Party movement is comprised of these people that we traditionally think of when we think of America. Honest, hardworking, with a strong sense of family and moral principles who want to preserve the heritage of a great country that lives in freedom and looks out for their fellow man.

Paul Ryan’s budget plan is exactly the type of reform that we need to set this country back on course.  The Democrats are trying to lie to the people, Paul Ryan is giving us the truth! The course lain by Pelosi, Reid, and Obama ends as a smashed wreck on the rocks, with America broken, and its people subservient, and no longer with a say in their own government, while also deprived of any individual liberty. It ends this way only if we allow ourselves to be treated as objects, who were easily manipulated into supporting the dishonest, who are always consumed by the need for power.

However, under the Ryan plan, America regathers both its moral compass, and its strength. A Santa Claus method of favoritism in exchange for power requires an endless supply of other people’s money, taken by force, that is unsustainable. This gangster system needs to be thwarted for good now, no matter how much temporary sacrifice this requires, because when it violently expires eventually and inevitably, after all the money is gone, and our country is in its death throes, the pain will be far, far greater.

The Democrats did not pass a budget because they decided it would be easier to deceive the public by attacking any Republican plan.  The President’s proposal for a budget was a continuation of the irresponsibility and dishonesty he wishes to perpetuate.

So what will happen? Will we become a nation which succumbed to lying words, from liars, who would have us believe they are helping the weak, or will we follow a true path to reform our broken and exploited system to restore the real America?

Paying For Free Lunch

Harry Reid thinks the taxpayers who have found a voice in the the form of the Tea Party movement have it all wrong…

What did Milton Friedman say about those that think like Harry Reid?

 

Let’s Be Clear…

Obama is fond of saying this.

If anything gets much clearer for America under Obama’s leadership, based on how the media will report it, then expect bats to start falling from the night’s sky as they suffer catastrophic mid air collisions in their sonar deprived blindness. We know the lapdogs are just doing what they are told to do as caucus team players, parrot the talking points, but the rest of us can see even they are beginning to squirm more now at the lies and audacity, and feel the need to shower more often.

No real explanation as to why Obama chose to start a new war without any real national interest, not even the ministers of propaganda are able to spin it well.

Maybe we can get a clear explanation on what social engineering did for our housing values? Or maybe, why people like Barney Franks or Chris Dodd are not in prison for their roles in the outright extortion and ponzi schemes they devised and supported resulting in the predictable and subsequent collapse of the mortgage financing sector?

This country has tremendous reserves of untapped energy resources and the technology know-how to safely extract them, and put them to productive use to aid our economic vitality, but what is very clear is that those invested in their own power will not permit this course for our future, not while they hold the reins.

Here is what is crystal clear to the average taxpayer, that there are way too many people playing games with the truth. A trip to the grocery store for life’s necessities is becoming a budget management exercise (that used to be reserved for planning summer vacation spending) as both food and gasoline prices are soaring.

The Democrats own the budget mess.  Any shutdown that is needed due to their reckless spending over the last four years is, and should be, pinned squarely where it belongs, on them! This country only reached a ten trillion dollar deficit in October of 2008 but now we are well past $14 trillion! Granting another raise of the debt ceiling would clearly be an outrage against the consent of the people, so our experience tells us watch out, they will find a deceitful or underhanded way of doing this and the GOP will cave in to it, despite our protests, or the damning long term affects to our posterity.

During campaigns we hear much about trimming wasteful and overlapping programs in our federal government. We know there are tons of them and the waste and fraud and abuse of taxpayers money is rampant.  Now is the time to get down to the work of paring off all this fat, as their carbon footprints on our pocketbooks is far too big.

Both parties could also look at the barriers to their power imposed by the US Constitution that they have so willfully destroyed through overreach, or just ignored for decades, and see that maybe that wasn’t such a hot idea. So many burdensome rules and regulations have been created nobody can know or comply with them all, and the free enterprise racehorse of the past is burdened with an estimate 20% of its own weight by all these, while still being expected to compete globally. While the real issues of our country like national security, energy independence, effective education, crime, moral decline, poverty etc. have not improved, and in fact worsened under central planning, our government takes an ever larger share of the cargo area in our 747 jumbo jet economy while telling us all to shut up, and sit down, and do as we are told.

Failure and incompetence without accountability is business as usual for these people, and they want to tell us how we should live? No way! We can clearly see that their interference is what is clouding our future!

Let us be clear! Let us set the conversation! Those in Washington need the message recited over again and again, they may call us any name they wish, they can blame us for their dead bats too, but we have had it, we are watching them closely in greater numbers than they think, we expect the truth, responsible and accountable government, and clearly we need to continue to let them know it!

“Change” by Our New Anti Freedom Government

Our president has demonstrated he is Anti-Freedom.

For the first time in my adult life I feel that we have been infiltrated by enemies of freedom.

I know other feel this too.  It is an almost surreal situation where the popular culture and media ignore the most obvious facts of the times.

Look at Iran today where millions look for any acknowledgment from a newly silent US Government that they are right to stand for freedom for themselves!  It is a travesty to whom we are as a people, and what we represent, to let these people be crushed by a brutal regime, and by the deathly refusal of this anti-freedom president to speak up!

I don’t know why Michelle Obama could not ever see any good about my country before, but since her husband was elected I can honestly say his policies have made me ashamed of who we are being now.

His buddies around the world are all  the worst enemies of freedom, and I have not heard him promote freedom at all in his travels.  I have only heard apologies for having played a role in the spread of democracy and his pledge to end such practices.

In fact everything is so anti-American and anti-freedom with this administration and his ideological and obedient cousins in Congress that one wonders if we are missing something?

You are not missing a thing, this is what it is, our “change” is a systematic dismantling of all things that makes America strong.

Our prestige, our economic might, our military might, our free society, our moral standing, and our liberty are all being dismantled deliberately.

When one believes as Barack Obama does- in an ideology that demands a completely level field and equality amongst all peoples, than what other choice would one choose if one were in the position to make those directional choices?

Some of the people we have known for a great deal of our lives are seemingly blissfully unaware that this is exactly the “change” Obama has brought.  They seem unconcerned and locked into the identity they long ago chose for themselves.

They see themselves as JFK Democrats, or sympathetic to the cause of the little guy or working class.

Little do they realize that JFK would fall into their class of “right wing extremist” as issued by the left as a dirisive term applying to any and all that oppose them.  Given JFKs positions on cutting taxes and strong defense he would probably be to the right of every Democrat in Congress today!

And Martin Luther King was a Republican people!  He believed in God too, by the way! Today he would be targeted for legal takedown by the anti-American ACLU!

Our problem of having the major news outlets editors presenting a distorted perspective to every single story is enabling this anti-freedom “change” Obama has brought.

The little guy and the underdog?  Ask yourself this, where did all our manufacturing capacity go and why is it gone?  The unions are now in the only industries left, (the service and construction sectors) having forced businesses to seek labor where it makes economic sense.

Meanwhile thousands of the “little guys” that trusted the unions no longer have any job much less a good paying job.

The Democrats pander to special interests groups of every ilk for one reason only to garner votes, yet they show their true colors by embracing tyrants where gays,women, and the working class are brutally repressed.

So it can be very discouraging to see friends falling for all the games being played by the liberals who’s only actual purpose is to secure permanent “ruling” powers for themselves, while acting as if they are the new gods and saviors of mankind.

Fortunately the patriotic “teaparty movement” came about and a second wave of powerful and now organized protests to the insanity of todays governments actions is underway.  Try as they might, the media that sold their integrity to retain access, will not be able to dismiss us as a passing fad.  we are here now,  and we are a force in place to take a stand for our principles once again!

Many people have expressed frustration, so deflating have been the unrelenting assaults on our principles cherished by our people, but now is not the time to be discouraged!

Read  Give Up? Are you Kidding?

Get yourself and family out to an Independence Day rally they will be going on across the nation and the numbers will exceed those we saw on April 15th , so it will be huge.

Encourage people to read the Constitution and understand the limits of power on government, and how the out of control spending and growth of big government, and the assault on liberty- must be stopped!

National Health Care

The Health Care “facts” we hear these days are really just selling points in the big push to nationalize our health industries.

The media isn’t going to dispute Washington’s or Obama’s claims about either the numbers or actual state of our health care issues,  so it is up to us to seek the truth in other places.

The authors of the book Your Health Matters ( Greg Dattilo and Dave Racer)[Alethos Press, St. Paul, Mn] drill down into these complicated issues surrounding health care reform.

The “facts” we hear so often- are often just plain wrong, and these authors refute many of them while advocating for free market solutions to the health care issues.

This appears to be great information on countering the arguments made by the socialist attempting to impose on us  European socialism via our health care!

When Will President Obama Make the Case for Freedom?

Our First President

Our First President-George Washington

It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position.

Washington’s Farewell Address of 1796

The case for freedom is America.

Millions seek to come here for that reason alone!

Appreciative Americans realize that and thank God that they were fortunate enough to be either born here, or become a citizen here.

Millions more around the world live without freedom, but hope to experience it someday.

It does not take a whole lot of education to understand that we are blessed, while others are not so fortunate.

Obama is exploiting the difference for his own political purposes.

Past presidents have shown the world what freedom  offers, and encouraged people from around the globe to not only consider freedom, but to strive for it.

America is not a selfish nation.  We have never felt that freedom and liberty was solely our domain to jealously guard without sharing.

So why now is our president acting as if that is the case?  Why does he travel  to places devoid of any true freedom- and state we are standing on common ground?

Just when exactly is he going to start to speak the truth about the way things really are?

People that live under freedom live the best, period.  They have the most, need the least as far as basic survival and in quality of life.

People that live under powerful thugs or where an elite political class controls everything have the least, and need the most.

Our freedom grew out of our economic freedom, that is how we became the superpower we are compared to other nations. That superpower status does not just refer to military might, it applies across the categories of human endeavors.

Innovation, generosity, justice, compassion, and economic might.

Our freedom enabled us to become who we are.  We are free to speak, to worship, to own property and to have a representative government.

Our freedom has created such a powerful momentum that we have been propelled along by this even as many have worked tirelessly against our rights and freedom.

Now though, all those chips and cracks against our principles, by so many, for so long, are really taking a toll on our Charters of Freedom, the Declaration of Independence, and the U.S. Constitution.

I do not see  or hear our president making the case for freedom at all.

In fact, I am not alone in believing,  that the president has actually been making the case against freedom everywhere he goes,  with both words and deeds.

We can easily find apologists and defenders alike that insist that we, whom cherish our freedom, have judged the president all wrong.

They call us “extremists” as they work feverishly to deny all religious worship as the work of “zealots” if it does not conform to their worship of the State.

They call us “fringed elements” while they work ingeniously to disguise their attempts to stifle and suppress speech that does not conform to their views.

As they seize control over private industries right and left, they claim free enterprise is the evil in our country.

They openly admit to plans to further deprive of us our freedoms and how they will spend a lot more money we do not have, to make energy unavailable for use, to punish those with special sentences for daring to think for themselves about social issues, and to openly flood our society with workers they know will vote for entitlements over freedom.

Not only is our free economic system being dismantled without regard to freedom, our personal freedom is also under attack.

Our Constitution guarantees the right to own and bear arms an essential right in a free society, yet Obama has not been straight with America, and does seek to disarm us.

Nothing can be more personal than seeking and having control over your own health care decisions, and also maintaining your privacy as an individual, so why than is Obama pushing so hard to to seize these personal rights and personal freedoms away too?

How can society be free if they have no say in their lives?

I do not know exactly why our media threw in so completely with the anti-freedom, pro-control left.  It is bad for us all (that love freedom) that they have chosen this.

Most of us can appreciate and understand the special role and rights afforded a free press by our Founding Fathers.  They recognized that our freedom would come under attack, they saw the press as having a vital role in warning of an overreaching and abusive government.

Few spectacles are more chilling these days than to watch as our press is virtually silent during press conferences with the President, or even his press Secretary, on issues across the board that are having long term impacts to Americans freedoms.

Some of the media remarks are so absurd and beyond belief in unadulterated adulation for a president that has barely taken office, yet has done considerable damage to Americas image and to freedoms image as well thus far, that you find yourself double checking the sources to make sure they are true!

I have come to the conclusion that this president has no intention of making the case for freedom, this president intends to make a case of government control over freedom, and the press has decided to aid and abet him in that effort.

So I would make this case.  We are not the “extremists” here. We who love freedom, we love liberty and we want our children and grandchildren to also have freedom and liberty are not any of the names or labels used to distort what we stand for.

We are doing what so many others have done throughout our great history.  We are following tradition, celebrating freedom,  and always doing our part to both preserve and protect it.

We have lost so many good men and women fighting for our country.  They vowed to protect and preserve our Constitution, the doctrine of freedom,  from all enemies foreign and domestic.

When will President Obama make the case for freedom?

I do not believe he ever will, or ever wanted to.

So everyday we must do it for ourselves!
