Why?

This is the constitutional crisis the Tea Party has been waiting for. If ever there were justification for action instead of debate, the Tea Party has been handed their opportunity. If ever there were a reason to surround the Supreme Court in protest, this is it.

Silence.

Yes, they are working to solve the constitutional crisis politically, but it can't be done politically. One might repeal Obamacare all they want, it does not change the ruling that throws open the doors to government control over one's life, over their health and over their death. The ruling cannot be repealed, it must be repudiated, Chief Justice Roberts must be impeached for abuse of power and/or treason and a new court must hear the arguments all over again. (Yes, I know Obama would insert a liberal justice, does it really matter?)

Logically, none of this can be done politically; not by electing certain members of congress, or by putting in power Republicans who have allowed all of the abuses of the Obama Administration without a single cry of protest.

There is no more important issue to a republic than the legitimacy of the vote, yet the Republicans have been largely silent on issues of voter fraud, except in their individual races. Eric Holder has not been made to pay for his statements that voter fraud cannot come close to the abuses suffered by "his people" so he will not prosecute clear and obvious examples thereof. That is reckless disregard for the very laws that substantiate and validate government at the beginning, it destroys the concept of legitimate elections, the one thing every politician needs in order to claim authority.

The Republicans have allowed Barack Obama to make illegal appointments, has tolerated his illegal Executive Order which would enable millions of illegals to become legal. That is a direct usurpation of Congress' power: Article 1, Section 8, fourth clause of Congress' power to "establish uniform rules of naturalization".

Republicans have allowed Barack Obama to purchase, not loan, private industry. Without a whimper, without a clamor, they have, as a body operating as a majority in the House of Representatives done nothing to hold this president accountable for his misdeeds and usurpations of Congresional power.

Electing them is going to make a difference? No, it will not. It will not turn back the hands on the clock, it will not give them backbone, it will not deter them from doing future damage to the Constitution themselves. Roberts was a product of Washington Republicans.

The Tea Party has formed itself into a political power of its own and has just as quickly proved itself to be as ineffectual and incompetent in that role as any other political power in the United States.

The Tea Party has always lacked an "if not..." counterbalance to its protestations, warnings and ultimatums. It has the power to force change, but it will not use it. It has become nothing more than a minor-league Republican support group.

Every avenue for the Constitutionalist and Patriot to demand and receive legitimate government has been denied. If not now, when? If not this, what? The crash and thunder that should have accompanied the Roberts ruling has not been heard. Those who still, despite all evidence to the contrary, think this government can somehow be righted are fools or cowards.

Right now, the Republicans in congress should be challenging everything the Obama Administration does, it should be holding investigations into abuse of power charges against every department under the direction of the administration: EPA, USDA, DHS, etc. To fail to do so is a capitulation of principles no future election or actions of the Republicans can reverse.

War has been declared upon the Constitution by those who directly benefit from its protections. Who else could do it? These are domestic enemies, there is no other definition that suffices. Is there any doubt? One might delcare that my statements are out of bounds, or too radical, but would they deny them outright? Is there one thing this government (including Republicans) have done, or not done that would support a defense for the charges I have made?

The Republicans are guilty of failing to support the Constitution by failing to invoke the power of congress to do what it clearly has the authority to do. It has the authority to not only hold Eric Holder in contempt, but to arrest and detain him to keep him from acting against the Constitution, but they will not do it, because they are afraid, they are cowards. By refusing to use the power of the Constitution they are destroying it as much as any Supreme Court ruling.

In absence of a champion, who would the Constitution look to for help? Those in power, capable and able to do it, will not. The Tea Party who has enough political capital to demand that those in power move to defend the Constitution, has not. Is it left to a ragged band of patriots? Why?

Why is it our job to move mountains and destroy ourselves in the simple pursuit of legitimate government when all of the power and all of the funds belong to those who will not do it and will not support us in our endeavors? These powerful and influential members of the conservative lobby protect themselves from bad press, but will willingly accept the fruits of our sacrifice, once dead and buried.

The Liberty Movement is being driven into a corner by both sides of the political structure: by the Democrats through open hostility toward the Constitution and by the Republicans for allowing it to go on unchallenged.

Why is it our burden? Perhaps we should rethink our objectives and our methods.

  1. Why?

    Because the Rupublicrats can't wait to follow the Demikins example and get all those pesky rules out of the way an wield the power the way they want to. Just like George W did, just like Clinton did, ad nausum. "But Mom, Dougie got to do it..."

    "Precedence" and lawlessness. It is a bitch.

  2. I have to agree with Toaster - the Respublicans want the same power as do the Left, but they want the Left to be the bad guy and impose it.

    Someone is going to have to be the idiot...

  3. Well said, but I don't think anything will be done until they come for the guns as in the revolution, but they aren't going to do this in today's climate.

  5. Both parties are the problem.. They both need to be spanked and grounded. It's time we meager citizens (pawns to them) become more vocal.. So what if MSM misreports about us. I could really care less what they would say.. New media is growing. We are Revere. Suggestion also would be to go to civil meetings like city councils, county board meetings. Or just send very scathing but informative letters to those respective members for the public record.

  6. It doesn't matter "why". It just has.
    But will we? I tried, but found lots of folks kicking the dirt and acting as though nothing beyond their door was enough of an impetus.
    Your posts are full of examples of grievances, abuses and usurpations, as are the blogs of many others. How much more documentation do we need?

    Perhaps another meet to discuss things?

  8. Well said and yes, it is about coming change and revolution, How soon and how will this sunder the republic apart?

    I cannot see the tree tops yet but I have seen the fallen bodies in the forests, across the American breadbasket, blood running into the dry parched lands once green when irrigated, before the water was stolen to protect some damn sucker which no one cares about. Blood running off the front porches of deem plantations seeping into the red dirt of the south, that have become hallowed ground for most black politicians and white apologists, so consumed by the White Man's burden they embrace foolish notions of political correctness, excess diversity and multiculturaism to the point of hating the foundation that allowed tour republic to thrive and stand out.

    A ragged bunch of patriots indeed and I will gladly stand shoulder to shoulder, back to back, with anyone who is ready to fight and die for restoration of our Constitution. I have already thought over where I was three, five years ago and the storm clouds are and have been upon us. I am not one to run for cover, are you?

    T.L. I re-posted this over on PC with a link back and nice intro for those readers who may wander in from PC. Meant to use one from a day or two a go but I was worn out from playing wack a mole with my severe back pain.Really bad now and limited in what I can do on blogging!
