There are individuals that are in or have been in the US government that are just as bad a Saddam Hussein on his worst day. US Chemical Weapons
Development, developing the Atomic Bomb and then not dropping it once, but twice just to make sure that US got the idea across to the Japanese and at
Potsdam that we had more than one and possibly many more.
In reality, we should never have developed it. It saved lives they say. It started the nuclear arms race I say!
But, I’m getting off focus.
The U.S. Declaration of Independence states that "when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design
to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government"
Although many declarations of independence seek legitimacy by appealing to the right of revolution, far fewer constitutions mention this right or
guarantee this right to citizens because of the destabilizing effect such a guarantee would likely produce.
New Hampshire's constitution guarantees its citizens the right to rebellion, in Article 10 of the constitution's Bill of Rights:
Whenever the ends of government are perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the people
may, and of right ought to reform the old, or establish a new government. The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is
absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.
The Kentucky Constitution also guarantees a right of revolution in Section 1 of the Bill of Rights.
All power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority and instituted for their peace, safety, happiness and the
protection of property. For the advancement of these ends, they have at all times an inalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform or abolish
their government in such manner as they may deem proper.
Article I, §2 of the Tennessee Constitution states: "That government being instituted for the common benefit, the doctrine of non-resistance against
arbitrary power and oppression is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind."
North Carolina's constitution of November 21, 1789 also contains in its Declaration of Rights, "3d. That Government ought to be instituted for the
common benefit, protection and security of the people; and that the doctrine of non-resistance against arbitrary power and oppression is absurd,
slavish, and destructive to the good and happiness of mankind."
A little revolution every now and then can be a good thing. Can you say “AMERICAN”.
That’s how the US Government got its start.
There are many way’s to a means.
The US Government appears to be very strong but that is a great deception.
Our Government is as fragile as a butterfly’s wing.
For the price of a few stamps, envelopes, a little technology and vision, the governing body can be brought to a grinding halt and be kept that way
indefinitely. Congress could not meet, courts could not function. Wall Street could be completely halted. Chaos would follow in short order and not
one loss of life up to this point. The US Military might would be rendered null. Whom are they going to fight? Amongst themselves is the answer.
Destabilization would continue until “We The People” again reestablish the Popular Vote.
The Electoral College has taken the vote from” We The People”.
As citizens of the United State of America, one of our most important rights is that of which to vote. By voting, the general population has a say in
who its leaders are. Votes for local, state, and even federal representatives directly reflect who the constituents want in office. However,
America’s highest office is not elected by a vote of the people.
