Over many decades and without cease, we have come to see the constitution being challenged. At times, we have fought for what is right and great men have stepped up to save us. Many men in our history have come out of the shadows to inspire the people. Some have risked their lives for freedom, while others have deceived the people, only to steel our right for Freedom of Religion and Freedom of speech among many others.

Amendment 1:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Powers corrupt and Governments divide

Following the close of the Civil War, the rights we fought for have been trampled on by every President to step into office, some with good intention at heart, while others were not. We note that during a correspondence with General Robert E. Lee, Lord Acton stated; “Powers tend to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Thomas Jefferson said it head on when he warned Americans about our own enemies: “The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.” The problem we now face is “we the people” have allowed the chains to break and the Government has become the criminal. They have divided us by a scheme called political parties and we now fight among each other, as if we are enemies fighting for different causes. It doesn’t matter if you vote Republican, Democrat or Independent. We all have the responsibility to uphold and keep The Constitution and The Declaration of Independence solid as we are the foundation of its existence.

In 1789 when The Constitution was signed, the Republican and Democrat parties were not, as of yet, formed. Common people like you and I, risked their lives and the lives of their family to change the nation.  With one common cause, they set out to save America.  Our Ancestors took a stand for what was right and thus created a future for generations to follow.

Years after The Constitution was signed, the National Republican party was formed in 1797 and following that the Democratic Republican party was formed in 1829. Even with the two parties, both did not want to completely give up their identification of the “old” Republican Party, which was the era before the 1824’s Presidential Election.  The 34th Congress [1855-1857], is known as the transitional period in which the final diminish of the old political parties was absolved. Then we saw the formation of what we now know as the “Democrats versus Republicans”. Following these historical events in our history, we have seen inclines and declines within the government and our Constitutional rights as Americans.

Great Leaders

We have experienced many great things and also many horrible things within our history. Starting with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968), who was the principle of the “Non-Violent” Civil Rights leader and a motivational speaker on behalf of not just African Americans but for all Americans, He spoke against the violence, the government and was a voice for our rights as human beings. My favorite speech is the “Strength to Love (1963) where he says; “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy, The true neighbor will risk his position, his prestige and even his life for the welfare of others.”.  Let me ask you, if we won the civil war, then why did African Americans still need to stand up? True, people are mean, but that is all people.The Government still divides the people because people united are a threat to its existence.

James Madison (1751 – 1836) was the 4th President, the founder of the Bill of Rights and is hailed as the “Father of the Constitution” as he is the original drafter.  While in office he said; “I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations.” He is what our elected officials should model themselves after and have as their inspiration. Our Presidents main responsibility is to uphold the Constitution and to create and maintain a minimal government.   Unfortunately, President Madison was right when he spoke about silent enemies.

Jennifer Jones, a woman forcibly removed from speaking by cops during a Quartzsite, Arizona, city council meeting. Because this woman was a witness for police brutality, they illegally entered into her home and business, falsified her business records to indicate her business license expiration prior to the date originally given. Once she spoke out at the city council about this, she was removed from the building by police with force. Even when the Mayor continued to say allow her to speak, they did not heed to his requests. The police did not arrest her, wrote her a ticket for disorderly conduct and this was all caught on video.

Silent Enemies

 

Our enemies no longer reside outside of our borders but instead control our offices from within. They sit in congress, the White House, the Military, Judicial benches, and even the news media. Everyone knows Abraham Lincoln as a wonderful man who freed the slaves, but what many do not know is that was not what started the war. That is not what his objective was, albeit the outcome for African-Americans was just and honorable.

The argument that sparked the Civil war was merely based on the Confederates feeling that each state should be allowed to govern itself, as if it were a sovereign nation, which is what the Constitution declares.

Closely examining the Articles of Confederation, Article II states, “Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled.”

The Confederate States wanted to be a part of the United States, but only to pool resources for defense purposes to defend against foreign invaders (I.E. the British attacking), and to engage in free trade. The Union however, believed that the Federal government should be able to impose laws, taxes etc, on all states, as it is today. The Confederate southern states rebelled against what they felt was oppression by out of state lawmakers, and in turn sparked the civil war. In order to win the war, the Government needed to break the loyalty between Slaves and the men they worked for. At this point slaves were fighting with them and against the Government.  Once our Great Abraham Lincoln started this war and then offered freedom for fighting with the Government, it created a spark of anti unionism between the two thus enslaving us all. Immediately Abraham Lincoln issued an income tax to ALL Americans at 7% which in our day would equal 70% to pay for his war. This is merely one of the thousands of violations of our constitution.

Franklin D Roosevelt was also a huge contributor of our downfall. He came into office after degrading the former president on his duties in office, promised all sorts of wonderful things and then threw us further into the pit. Sound familiar? Here is a list of his accomplishments in office:

“During this period:

  • Roosevelt closed all banks for 4 days declaring a bank holiday so Congress could develop a plan of action. During this time frame, not one single American had access to his/her account or what they were doing with their personal monies.
  • Congress passed the Emergency Banking Act to permit the Treasury Department to inspect all banks before they would be allowed to reopen, and to provide for Federal assistance to large institutions that were bordering on bankruptcy.
  • The Economy Act was passed to balance the Federal budget by cutting the salaries of government employees and reducing pensions to veterans by as much as 15 percent. So what this means is we will rob from the poor to fix the governments screw-up!
  • The Agriculture Adjustment Act was passed to protect farmers from market fluctuations through subsidies and production controls, the forerunner of the huge farm subsidies we live with today. The Agricultural Adjustment Administration (AAA) was created to manage the effort. That initial organization is the father of the modern-day Department of Agriculture with over 100,000 employees, but we don’t have any emergencies to deal with today of which I’m aware and Newt Gingrich is the only current candidate who support closing this department. It’s a waste of tax payer’s money.
  • The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was created, including the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), an organization that guarantees your bank deposits. So what happens when the bank cannot provide the money? Well, the government just prints more, thus the value goes down and the debt rises.
  • The most recognizable departments set up under the New Deal to relieve the 15 million unemployed Americans were the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the Civil Works Administration (CWA), and the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA).
  • The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) was created to manage flood control, public electric power, and regional planning in that region.
  • Perhaps the most important measure that was enacted (if you are an alcoholic) was the repeal of the XVIII Amendment prohibiting the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors. The XXI Amendment was ratified in 1933.
  • The National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA) was passed to adopt an anti-deflationary scheme that would permit trade associations to cooperate in stabilizing prices within their industries. It guaranteed to workers, among its many provisions, the right of collective bargaining and helped spur large union organizing drives in major industries. Under the NIRA, businesses were called on to accept a minimum wage, maximum workweek and the abolition of child labor.
  • The NIRA subsequently created the Public Works Administration (PWA), a major program of public works spending designed to alleviate unemployment and to pump monies into the failing economy.

There was absolutely no constitutional basis for any of this legislation, Period! Roosevelt was able to hammer out this multitude of legislation because: 1) the democratically controlled Congress consisted of liberals and reformers, and 2) there was little resistance from the normally conservative business community, as they were desperate to find any means to achieve economic stability.

The irony of this legislature is these measures did not end, or even cause a significant dent in the economic depression, but instead set in motion the gigantic government bureaucracy we unfortunately live with today.” Even our current President Obama has violated our Constitutional rights time and again, with the rating of the worst President to ever sit in the oval office.

How do we stop the criminals in office?

President Ford; “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.”

The only way to stop what is happening, and to prevent our country falling into the wrong hands again, is to Clean House. The Government has become the legalized criminal and we are now labeled the problem. We must remove everyone out of office who is not protecting our Constitution. We are the people. We are who the Founding Fathers fought for. It is our responsibility to join ranks and fight for what is right. Vote them out, It is the only way.

The people united will never be defeated!
