I have not been posting as much lately. What has there been to write about anyway? The Birther Issue? I think Obama is a bad president, an opinion that has been borne out through his handling of the economic crisis. This is not to say that he has not pursued and largely achieved his economic goals, but he is a bad president because those goals are in direct conflict with what is best for the nation and the citizens thereof. I don't know if he was born here, or if the birth certificate is a fraud. But, if we should be rid of him, there are a lot better reasons, reasons that will work toward the overall health of the nation as a whole, for instance, because he has proposed, passed and relied upon violations of the Constitution to wield power.
Let's start with that. What part of the Constitution do we honor? Apparently we honor the part that describes how a president might be elected, but not what he has authority to do while in office. Once in office, if a Democrat, the power of the presidency is unbounded. He can go to war on a whim, without consent of the congress, which means without consent of the people. That, to me, is an impeachable offense and not one even George Bush attempted.
The president, (again, if a Democrat) can ignore the rulings of the court, destroy whole industries, direct the NLRB to bring charges against companies who do not place their manufacturing plants in heavily unionized labor markets.
All of this is and more are sheer outrages, outrages that seem to occupy the American concern not one bit. It is too late to blame a tame and obedient media for the lack of outrage. Everyone, by now, knows the media is nothing but a cheer leading section for any Democratic president. It has so thoroughly been catalogued at this point that it is redundant to continue to repeat it as if pointing out that the sky is blue, the sky is blue, the sky is blue.
I have not written as much lately because everyone knows what I have to say: this government is unconstitutional, it is criminal, in fact (ask any Mexican family mourning the loss of a loved one at the hands of the drug cartel largely armed by the ATF). The president is a traitor and so are the members of congress on every side of the aisle for not bringing him up on charges. It is a government devoid of accountability and all of the Tea Party activists in the world who are afraid to name the sin and punish the sinner are doing nothing but providing a vent for that built up outrage and, in effect, they are enabling the president and his cronies.
The government lacks any fear of the people. Step outside the boundaries and watch how quickly you are singled out and punished. Is this the America you are proud of? Is this the America that makes you fly a flag in your yard? See, I just don't know what to say anymore.
Perhaps there will be a time when we act more like our forefathers and demand liberty and accountability from our government, but I see no signs of it. Rather, I suspect we will react much more like Greece and British college students and demand more goodies from our government. I think the moochers and parasites in Wisconsin will win out, will take the day, because we have not been able to recognize these people as actual enemies of the state. We are too timid to go that far and therefore allow the saboteurs free run of our infrastructure while we shake our heads in dismay. We watch as each state makes voting exceptions for non-citizens to garner favor in their eyes while gutting the meaning of being an American in election after election and being subjected to this fraud, this disenfranchisement of the descendants of the founders, we shrug our shoulders and wish it were not thus.
If these are not reasons to fight back now and in the physical realm, I don't know what ever will be. If these abuses are not worth the lives and blood of patriots, I doubt the sort of patriots we need exist. So, I achieve my own private, small victories against the injustice without fanfare, without recognition, because only in this way can I tolerate myself and avoid the utter farce of being judged by the minions and sycophants of the government that is their master. To ask these slaves, these recipients of the public dole, to suddenly act as free Americans with the understanding and knowledge of the Constitution is a step too far. They are incapable of presiding over a fair trial because they have cast their lot with the government, they are already predisposed to rule against a tax protester, a Second Amendment advocate, a freedom fighter. They have been told by the judge that it is not allowed to consider that which must always be considered in matters of law, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. They have sided against freedom, against the Constitution and in favor of continued largess from the public trough. Would I put my fate in their hands?
I am now free to do as I please, knowing that whatever judge and jury I face will be a foreign court with alien rules and illegitimate findings. If a patriot, also a criminal. It is impossible to be one without being the other.
