"Indeed, the existence of class, of social hierarchy, is as old as man himself. It prevails in the jungle where strength determines hierarchy; among men, it has also been savagely the same; whereby rulers vested with power through personal combat; or through lineal heritage as in the case of royalty; ravage their subjects."
F. Sionil Jose, Contemporary Philippine English Author
Never have so many been so enamored by an irrational fantasy, spoon fed to us by a news media hungry to appeal to the raw emotions of their "subjects" ..... for ratings. It was TV saturation of Harry and Meghan, channel, after channel, after channel. If the world were coming to an end, we'd still be seeing Harry and Meghan on our flat screens.
By the time you read this, the pomp, circumstance and pageantry "wedding of the century", under the British Crown, will finally be over and the "little" people can go back to their daily drab lives while they dream of prince and princesses.
Hopefully, it is obvious to some that Prince Harry and American Princess Meghan Markle are flesh and blood people, as are all royals. They eat and drink, they sleep, they eliminate, they get sick, they make love, they have kids and like every other human being on this planet, they bleed and they eventually die. Their brain and their body parts are the same as yours. They are not elevated to some superior status just because of a birthright. It is a fantasy, a fiction and a contradiction of and conflict with human freedom. At the risk of offending a whole lot of people, you are being conned ..... unfortunately willingly.
What hogwash. For God's sake people, we fought a revolution to be free of Kings, Queens, royalty, the elite and the bankers. Now we glorify them?
We are WE THE PEOPLE, not subjects of the Crown, or the Democrats, or the Republicans, or the executive branch, or the legislative branch, or the judicial branch, or the deep state, or the central bankers. We're not British subjects any more and haven't been for over two centuries. We are free Americans and at great cost and sacrifice. But oh how quickly we abdicate our individual sovereignty to those who wield political power over us without so much as a whimper or a nod. We have sullied and trashed the memory of every man, woman, or child that gave their lives for freedom. In 242 years we have plundered our freedom and gave it up for a false sense of security and a free handout from government, along with millions of strangling laws, rules and regulations.
Look what has happened to the original thirteen colonies, those Confederation of states that gave birth to American freedom, the Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution during and after the American Revolution? At least eleven of those colonial states have morphed into socialist strongholds where Democrat/socialists control the legislative, judicial and executive branches of government, as well as the bureaucracy.
Massachusetts is a far cry from the days of yesteryear and the battles of Concord, Lexington and Bunker Hill. Massachusetts spawned the flawed and corrupt Kennedy Dynasty and the likes of Senator Elizabeth (Pocahontas) Warren. Vermont gave birth to that socialist wonder, U. S. Senator Bernie Sanders. What is even more alarming is that millions of millennials flocked to Bernie's coattails when he ran for President in 2016.
"With Connecticut’s vote, 11 states and the District of Columbia have now approved the measure, giving the compact a total of 172 electors. It needs only 98 more to reach the 270 mark."
And look what has happened to the Democrat-controlled States of California, Oregon and Washington. California might just as well be its own separate socialist Central American Spanish-speaking country and secede from the Union. Oregon and Washington, that is the Western parts, have succumbed to the rallying cry of not only socialism but radical environmentalism, while taxing their citizens to death by the billions for the worldwide con game of climate change, salmon habitat restoration for Indians and paying for the homeless. The more money they throw at the homeless and the Indians, the more the homeless and the Indians demand. Duh!
Meanwhile, Americans get all goo-goo eyed over a wedding of two mortals, who just happened to be the offspring of do-nothing royals in a country that can't seem to divest itself of its royal King and Queen past.
But it's not just the British royals and family dynasties we abhor. Government, the elite, the establishment, the deep state, central bankers and the Socialist Democrats are on our list as well.
Everywhere you turn, or own royal government is in our face. Laws, regulations, permits, taxes and higher costs due to government negligence, corruption and fiscal insanity, dominate your life. We might just as well live under a King or Queen.
You can't turn sideways without breaking a law. You live in a police state but you don't know it, or don't care. You tell yourself, "well that's OK, at least they haven't come into my house." And how long will it be before they start walking into your house without a warrant, or come on your property and poke around looking for violations for which they can fine you, or send you to jail? Wake up! American "royals" are already doing it, for a fair-the-well. So you say, "well that's OK, at least they haven't come into my bedroom." Think again! They are already looking into your bedroom and checking out the sex behavior of the American culture for use in designing further controlling policies. College and universities spit out these over-educated psychological "experts" like cordwood and guess where they go to work? That's right, government, public education and academia.
Government royals collect the most intimate details about each of us and all that information is stored on massive computers. Cameras are everywhere. Electronic surveillance is ever present. The FBI and DOJ have gone rogue. Government, under Obama Care, requires that all of your medical records be electronically stored in a national database. Doctor - patient privacy will be non-existent, if it isn't already.
Got a sex problem? The government will know. Not paying your bills? The government will know. Got guns in your house? The government will know. Got speeding tickets? The government will know. Had an argument with your spouse? The government will know. Spanked your kids? The government will know. Using too much electricity or water? Government will know.
Have you heard of the government Fusion Centers or the NSA? Look them up. It will make your blood boil. They have taken spying on Americans down to a veritable science and the leading edge of technology.
They even have a machine now that can drive by your house or your car and see and hear everything that is going on inside there, in lurid detail.
Then there are the local public schools that your royal government has stuck their hand in through the U. S. Department of Education. We wrote about this issue recently in our article entitled, "Well Johnny What Did You Learn At School Today?" By setting the national curriculum, they are brainwashing, that's right, we said brainwashing, your kids. You say, "well what's the brainwashing?" The brainwashing is a curriculum that is the antithesis of the American foundation of individual rights, freedom, liberty, and sovereignty. They teach psychologically washed multi-culturalism, collectivism, socialism, radical environmentalism and political correctness. They teach that America is evil, a gross polluter of the environment and a flagrant consumer of the Earth's resources. They teach that America is imperialistic and wants to dominate the world with its military power, without telling them that our military power and American blood have saved over a billion people from the brutality of dictators.
They tell impressionable kids that America must be reined in. We must conserve. We must apologize to the world. They teach the kids to challenge their parents with this garbage. They teach that the family must be broken down and separated. They teach people how to rat on their neighbors. They teach that government is all wise and all knowing and parents aren't too smart. Through this brainwashing, they (the royals of America) are dividing us, while conquering us at the same time.
And what of this ideology of radical environmentalism, coming to you from the most corrupt body on the planet, the United Nations and codified into American law without a treaty being debated and ratified? It's just another ruse for the "royals" to control you even more than you were before. These planners and other educated idiots want to force you into ever-increasing densities in large cities. Why? No, it's not only for environmental reasons. The fact is, government can control people better when they are densely packed into urban areas.
Government controls your roads, buses and rapid transit (transportation). They control your water, your sewer, your telephones, your electricity and your health care. What good is a house in the city without roads, water, sewer and electricity, everything that government controls? No good at all and government can withhold those services to force you to comply with their demands. You will willingly capitulate when the "royals" shut off your water.
Sure, they tell us that all of their actions are for our own good and our own safety. "That's the price you pay for being secure and educated", they say. But do you call this freedom?
Ladies and gentlemen, when are you going to quit bowing to a "royal" birthright or government, a government that has lost all allegiance to the principles of liberty and instead adheres to the policy that government knows best, whether the people like it or not?
There are a few courageous ones that are challenging government in isolated spots around the country, but they are paying a terrible price for their audacity and having little effect. Many lose everything in the process. Some pay huge fines. Many go broke. Some even land in jail. Some even get killed. Very few win. If there is not an avalanche of this type of resistance, America, as a free and sovereign nation, will be no more. If not enough Americans get off their dead butts and resist this onslaught of tyranny, history will record this 100-year event as the greatest conquest of mankind since the dawn of human civilization ..... without a shot being fired!
That's right! You have been bowing down to "royal" government every day of your life and if you will look in the mirror and tell yourself the truth, you know it to be a fact. That's disgusting and demeaning and not worthy of free men and women. Sadly, you are not a sovereign any more. You are just a happy slave. How can living under a King or Queen be any different?
While Americans get enraptured in the illusion of royal fairy tales from England, Rome is burning and deranged shooters, wanting to commit suicide or "get even", are shooting up innocent kids in our schools. Peasants from poor countries are pouring across our borders by the millions and getting on welfare. Healthcare costs are going through the roof. Meanwhile, our "royal" governors, legislators, the elites, the establishment, the deep state and the central bankers are winning, or doing nothing ..... and freedom is losing.
Nevertheless, we're not buying this up-side-down "royal" manure. We consider ourselves to be individually sovereign and we bow to no man, royalty ..... or government. Which are you?
But then, as a lonely, humble voice in the wilderness, what do we know?
