This is a difficult article to write; to accuse fellow Americans of being traitors of freedom and their country. We do not do so lightly. Nevertheless, from the vantage point from where we make our observations, we have no choice.
From individual rights and liberties, an irrevocable gift from our creator, comes individual responsibility and self-reliance. Should we deny our responsibility for our own actions and the direction of our own life, should we move from individual self-reliance to dependency on others, or government, we have squandered that irrevocable gift from our creator and handed it over to a collective. We have done so at our own peril.
Many years ago, on the Floor of the House of Representatives, Representative Davy Crocket said this about Congress appropriating money for the widow of a distinguished Naval Officer:
“Mr. Speaker—I have as much respect for the memory of the deceased, and as much sympathy for the sufferings of the living, if suffering there be, as any man in this House, but we must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for a part of the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living. I will not go into an argument to prove that Congress has no power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member upon this floor knows it. We have the right, as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right so to appropriate a dollar of the public money” ............
“......... We cannot, without the grossest corruption, appropriate this money as the payment of a debt. We have not the semblance of authority to appropriate it as a charity. Mr. Speaker, I have said we have the right to give as much money of our own as we please. I am the poorest man on this floor. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week’s pay to the object, and if every member of Congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks.”
And yet, as time has passed since Davy Crockett spoke these words, the Democrats have, with malice aforethought, corruptly appropriated monies from the public treasury and have passed out the taxpayers hard-earned dollars to those supposedly less well off, without the slightest constitutional authority. In so doing, they have invited rampant corruption and every government service program is rife with waste, fraud, abuse and yes, corruption.
This drift towards socialism began with the first dictator of America, FDR. His New Deal and Social security programs were fully sanctioned by the U. S. Congress and the U. S. Supreme Court. In fact FDR, in his speech to the nation in January of 1944, just after being reelected for a fourth term, said these unconstitutional words:
“This Republic had its beginning, and grew to its present strength, under the protection of certain unalienable political rights—among them the right of free speech, free press, free worship, trial by jury, freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures. They were our rights to life and liberty. As our Nation has grown in size and stature, however—as our industrial economy expanded—these political rights proved inadequate to assure us equality in the pursuit of happiness. We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. “Necessitous men are not free men.” People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made. In our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for all… Among these new rights are “The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries, or shops or farms or mines of the Nation; The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation; The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living; The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad; The right of every family to a decent home; The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health; The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment; The right to a good education.”
These pronouncements by a sitting president, should have sent shivers of loathing and disgust down the spines of all freedom-loving Americans at the time and caused the Founding Fathers to spin rapidly in their graves. In fact, at the same time, the Socialist Party candidate for president, Norman Thomas essentially said there was no need for him to run any more, because the Democrat Party had adopted the Socialist Party platform. His actual quote was: “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”
The Democrats since then have delivered on FDR’s traitorous words and New Deal programs. They have served up to the American people a platter of abject socialism and now, radical environmentalism. The American people have been bought, sold and conquered on the promises and propaganda of Democrats who have raided the public treasury for the sole purpose of buying votes to remain in power. They have accomplished this takeover with a cultural mindset that bears no relation to constitutional principles. They have appealed to the weakness in men that buy into the hype, propaganda, lies and distortions of these con men in order to receive these so-called “free” benefits from their government that bears no relation to their labors. All this the Democrats have done, without a shot being fired.
In almost every word and deed, Democrats have forsaken our constitution, even though Democrat politicians swear on sacred oath to preserve, protect and defend that very same constitution. They counter with, “the Constitution is a ‘fluid’ document, subject to interpretation that changes over time.” They ignore the statements in the Constitution that mandate it to be the Supreme Law of the Land and is to be literally construed using the original intent of the Framers.
Democrats apologize to the rest of the world for our achievements. We have allowed their socialist and radical environmental agendas to pervade our lives, usurp our rights and trash our Constitutions. We have allowed the infiltration of their unconstitutional agendas into our national culture.
They apologize for our greatness to the rest of the World. They have buried our well-deserved national pride in their attempts to seek approval from other countries with failed and corrupt governments. Democrats have capitulated to the whims of foreign nations because those nations don’t like our policies of freedom for every corner of the world; policies that we know lead to self-reliance, productivity and peace. Unashamedly, Democrats appease our enemies.
Internally, we have allowed the Democrats to turn our balance of power, designed by our Founding Fathers in the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government, on its head and we have allowed un-elected bureaucrats to make our laws. Our bureaucracies have been infiltrated by liberal, socialists and radical environmental graduates out of our very liberal colleges. And these bureaucracies make law, after law, after law until we are sick of laws and end up becoming lawless. Through these laws, with no constitutional authority or legislative approval, they take our land, our money and our rights as individual Americans and we have let them do it.
America needs to be the leader and the shining light to the World, not try to compete with the different forms of government and merge our “ways” with their “ways”. We are the most powerful country on Earth because we are free. America is and has been a beacon to the world and will continue to be that beacon unless we let Democrats and others who seek our destruction, try to dim that light with failed policies, negativism, despondency, dependency, the trashing of our constitution and embarrassment for our achievements, instead of being proud of them. We are great as a country and great as a people because of those achievements.
What America does will determine the fate of the world. If we forsake freedom, if we sell our sovereignty for expediency or a few pieces of silver, if we break the bonds of our Constitution, if we abdicate our right and duty to defend freedom for ourselves and future generations, we shall descend into the mediocrity, apathy and self loathing under which the rest of the world operates and will be pulled down to their level, never to rise again.
We have grave concerns that what we are facing today is a premeditated orchestration of the dismantling of our sacred institutions of freedom by Democrats and international elitists, that find that a free America stands in their way of the their distorted concept of the one-world-order, social justice and environmental protection, at any cost. Their unconstitutional give-away policies have this country on the brink of bankruptcy. Their environmental policies of restricting everything that we do, has brought this once-proud, can-do nation to its knees and has forced us to be dependent on other countries for our energy and other vital resources necessary for a thriving economy. Their open-border and amnesty policies that allow anyone wanting to come here illegally, will change the color of our politics and thus our freedom, for decades to come, from which we may never recover.
A clear and present danger hangs over this Country like a dark, ominous, angry cloud and threatens our freedom, if not our very existence. That dark, black cloud is manifested in abject socialism and radical environmentalism, the twin domestic evils that have invaded every corner of our culture and that have been sold to us by a “liberal” mentality, promoted by Democrats. Their ideas didn’t come from our founding principles and our laws, they came out of the bowels of socialist Europe and the United Nations and have been codified into law by Democrat presidential executive orders and a Democrat-controlled U. S. Congress that has lost all allegiance to the Supreme Law of the Land, our Constitution. These policies come at us with soft-sounding words like social equity, compassion, smart growth, sustainable development, biospheres, wildlife corridors, endangered species, invasive species, global warming, mass transit and the one-world order. It’s all dressed up in motherhood, apple pie and Chevrolet and it is one of the biggest con games ever perpetrated on what have now become, naïve, uninformed Americans.
But today, the hidden agenda of these perpetrators is finally being exposed all across America, as people are waking up to what has happened to them while they were sleeping. It’s way past time to fight back. This is still a great country, full of great people and it is salvageable if we will just vigorously defend our constitution and hold government to its limits, against the onslaught of failed liberal policies.
Should Barack Hussein Obama be elevated to President of the United States by the electorate because he happens to be a superb speaker, it could easily spell the death knell for a free United States of America. If the electorate is so naive as to elect a person with no substance and no experience, they shall get what they deserve. If they put this man in office based on hero worship and mass hysteria, the unintended consequences of their actions will reverberate throughout our history for a 100 years or more and our great country may have no chance of ever recovering from the effects of what he and a Democrat-controlled congress will do.
Democrats are traitors to America’s founding principles of freedom and liberty and are willing accomplices to the enemies of our freedom and our sovereignty. Those naive Democrats who have hitched their wagon to this party, aid and abet the destruction of America. No other conclusion is possible.
Unfortunately, Republicans are headed in the same direction and have forsaken their principles of small government, lower taxes and less restrictions on the people that was laid down in a ” blue print” for free men and women with common purpose and resolve to live out their lives and govern their individual and collective affairs by adhering to that ‘blue print’, some 232 years ago.
