Recently I had the privilege of being in Washington DC and watching the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier. Watching it and seeing the Arlington Cemetery Graves of some who I personally knew and worked alongside, and those who I didn't personally know, struck a common chord within me.Every last one of them including the living Veterans and the Active Military wrote a blank check for anything up to their lives when they swore to defend the Constitution and America from all enemies, Foreign and Domestic. What civilians don't seem to know is that oath when taken has only one expiration date; the passing of the oath taker.
Politicians take similar oaths, but I suspect many of them have no real knowledge of what they are promising and some of them may have even taken it under false pretenses.Some of them honor it to the letter, and some of them ignore the fact they have even taken an oath. It never used to be that way.Yes there was the occasional rat bastard who ignored it and went into politics for money and power instead of public service. Once upon a time in America, there used to be a certain code of ethics and an accepted standard of public conduct. That standard is missing in almost every facet of American life today.
The Founding Fathers signed a mutual agreement that came into force on March 4, 1789. That agreement has been in effect for 229 years, and the laws have worked for America that long. This is not to say they were working for everyone, or that they have never been challenged. The truth is they are not perfect, but they are better than other countries have working for their citizens. That Agreement has been modified 27 times in those 229 years and will be modified many more times in the future. That agreement for mutual protection is of course the Constitution of the REPUBLIC of the United States. It is all that stands between Americans and Anarchy which would devolve into Chaos and Dictatorship in a true Democracy.
Whatever happens in America, we have this Document that is designed to primarily Protect our Unalienable Rights from the excesses of an Overreaching Excessive Government which would curtail our rights for it's own selfish advancement. Seriously though a Government is made up from people. Many of those people have forgotten, or never knew, that agreement was what protected us from destruction from outside or from within. They have no concept that we must not turn away from it's intent. We are a nation of people who over 229 years ago, agreed to govern themselves, and turned their backs on Monarchies, Dictatorships, Satrap's,Theocracies,and Democracies. We became the First Self Governed Republic in the World.
That Noble experiment does have aspects of of Democracy and other forms of governance, but those are tempered by a written Constitution. A Constitution which was designed to, and is meant to, curtail and control the limits of what can be done by the people, and by their elected representatives. Unfortunately, the wanna-be rulers have usurped much of the power designated to the people themselves.In case they have forgotten, the People are the highest authority of our Constitutional Republic. This misconception about Federal Power being Supreme, must be stopped and reversed, or the experiment will fail. It will fail with disastrous results for the American People. Lately, the Nation is showing preliminary signs of a Theocratic-Dictatorial- Monarchy, and rule by force instead of by public consent as it was intended to be by our Founders. Some of the reasons for this I will go into a little later.
Over the last Hundred and Fifty Three Years, many elected representatives and a few Presidents have skirted the intent of the Constitution and have weakened the peoples say in how they choose to be governed. This is decidedly Un-American in nature. This must be reversed. Many will disagree with me on this, but the American People must take most of the blame for the present Chaos we are fraught with. We pursued hedonistic and selfish ideals, and lost sight of what our representatives were taking from us through the old Roman ploy of Bread and Circuses designed to hide actual events and to usurp our rightful power for themselves. In short, to make us subjects instead of the citizens we are.
We became greedy and complacent over their lies/promises, and even allowed ourselves to be divided among ourselves by their lies to become more self centered and less interested in the health and strength of our nation. We unwittingly allowed greedy and power hungry representatives to beguile us and secretly create political upheaval. This was not accomplished overnight, but over a century and a half.
They Infiltrated the centers of higher learning and twisted our moral and ethical tenets into weapons used in the psychological warfare they have waged against us by turning our beliefs inside out and using them against us through faulty logic, at every turn. In Fact they have turned us from a melting pot, into a plethora of groups sniping at each other, so they can cause us to attack each other, when it suits advancing their agendas and false narratives.
This latest Infiltration has taken the original ones several steps closer to ending our autonomy and self rule. It goes like this; There are massive influxes of Illegal immigrants, and the existing politicians on one side are supporting them and fighting with the politicians on the opposite side. This divides us and we all lose sight of the cadre of immigrants who come legally into america, gain citizenship, and then ensconce themselves into positions of power and influence in the various areas of Government, State and Federal Bureaucratic Positions, the Business Community,and every aspect of American life. While doing this they breed prolifically and gain majorities in various areas of the nation. Granted this is what our forebears did, but they have a different agenda. NWO.
Think about it,Federal State and Local Judges using Sharia Law instead of Constitutional law. grass roots politics on up to national politics slowly being taken over by naturalized citizens with differing agendas. Ask yourselves this; Is there a foreign central group that is controlling these "Immigrants? Another chilling fact is this is happening all over the world with the exceptions of China and Japan. extrapolate the influx to date, and move it forward to say 2060. By that time the foreign elements will be the majorities and the existing power structures along with the traditions of Liberty and Freedom will be gone. Here are some statistics; in 1969 there were an estimated 540,000 illegal immigrants, and the latest figures of 2016 estimated the Illegals at 11,300,000 or a rise of 0.03% in 1969 to 3.5% in 2016. The increase has been a steady influx of foreign nationals from a multitude of countries.
The American People are beginning to wake up to some of the threats, but not all of them. Federal Government has been infiltrating State and Local governments for years to make them basically outposts for Federal Compliance.
Mangus Colorado has stated;"
the answer lies in the Constitution using only literal meanings of the time written. Over the last 235+ years the Progressive Socialists (A.K.A. Communists) have been suing clauses to distort meanings and have expanded federal powers by simple usurpation (started with John Marshall in 1800). These usurpations morphed into Hundreds of agencies complete with their own selected Courts and Judges. The Judges are appointed by the agency without Presidential or Senate approval? So, they create false laws that have no constitutional basis and this become the base for the Corrupt DC elites? The Supreme Court has given the President power to fire these unconstitutional judges. This will be a big game changer as all of the corruption will be exposed and stopped by President Trump.
Well the Supreme Court has laid open the old wound of Appointed administrative Judges by the many agencies without Presidential of Senate approval. Trump can now fire them by the thousands and he should act quickly before the Socialists find a remedy? Yes and that includes Congress - both parties.
This is my position and it must be done if we are to LIMIT government powers to those enumerated in the Original Constitution. To hell with John Marshall and the usurping courts.
We have also been warned by many extremely well educated persons from the past like John Locke
(1632-1704) English philosopher and political theorist who probably inspired our Forefathers in their endeavors to create the United States.
"Tis a Mistake to think this Fault [tyranny] is proper only to Monarchies; other Forms of Government are liable to it, as well as that. For where-ever the Power that is put in any hands for the Government of the People, and the Preservation of their Properties, is applied to other ends, and made use of to impoverish, harass, or subdue them to the Arbitrary and Irregular Commands of those that have it: There it presently becomes Tyranny, whether those that thus use it are one or many."
-- John Locke
(1632-1704) English philosopher and political theorist
"[E]very Man has a Property in his own Person. This no Body has any Right to but himself. The Labour of his Body, and the Work of his Hands, we may say, are properly his. The great and chief end therefore, of Mens uniting into Commonwealths, and putting themselves under Government, is the Preservation of their Property."
-- John Locke
(1632-1704) English philosopher and political theorist
"The Natural Liberty of Man is to be free from any Superior Power on Earth, and not to be under the Will or Legislative Authority of Man, but to have only the Law of Nature for his Rule."
-- John Locke
(1632-1704) English philosopher and political theorist

After all this information has been read and digested, the question remains; "What are our options?" and "What are we as a people going to do about the issues?"
We actually have some good options, but they are time sensation and they are somewhat related by priorities. We know the Democrats are not the same party they were 50 years ago. I seriously doubt that even people like Schumer and Pelosi can see the degrading changes that have been brought about. I know they don't see the infiltration by the naturalized people placing themselves in critical positions of power in the body politic of the United States. So, what do we do to preserve and restore the Republic?
The most critical election of the last 200 years will be the mid-term elections. If the the Cultural Neo - Marxist Democrats win and take control of Congress, it's game over. So the first and foremost item to be promoting is uniting the Conservatives and educating them why it's so critical to have a massive turn out at the polls in November and even the remaining primaries. This group of Anti - Progressive Democrat voters, must realize it's imperative to vote against every Democrat running, or risk losing the Republic to a Socialist Oppressive Government with most if not all of our freedoms removed. The Constitution will be either ignored or changed by them. This they have already promised to do starting with modifying the 1st Amendment and abolishing the 2nd Amendment.
Concurrently with opposing the Federal Democrats, we must also oppose the State and Local Democrats running in November. This will be hard to do given the Blue States and the Democrats uniting to take back the power they lost since 2010.
It does not end there either. To prevent more stolen powers from the people, the people must also demand their State Legislatures petition Congress for an Article V Amendment proposal Convention. This might seem very scary to the public, but it can not open the Main body of the Constitution like the ones who have the most to lose are saying. For the first time it will be the people proposing amendments that Congress would never propose. Things like Term Limits for Congress. Balanced Budget Amendment that imposes severe penalties on Congressional Representatives who do not create one in the time specified. Repeal of the original three post Civil War amendments where the Federal Government stole the powers from the people and the States.
Many more amendments can and will be proposed, but the same safeguards that govern the Amendments Congress proposes for their own benefit are in place for ones the people propose without any input from Congress. I can see others like;
Any raises for Congress must be approved by the public instead of just enacted by Congress.
Or, Congress must use the same Health care plan they imposed on the people, or buy more coverage out of their own pockets.
Government paid for health coverage ends when their terms are over.
Any pensions must be in line with the average pensions of people in their States and can only be collected by current Representatives prior to the start date of the amendment so pensions can be phased out.
There is a multitude of potential amendments that can and should be proposed, but bear in mind the Delegates and their States will have to agree on the wording, and it still takes 38 States to ratify any Amendment.
For the first time in a very long time, the ball is in the peoples court instead of in the Representatives. What will we do with it?
