Yep, that's hitting the nail of the thumb. I usually reserve the twisting of this particular homily for stating the painfully
Politics has been described as "The Art of Compromise." What politics has "compromised" over the past few generations is the Supreme Law of the
As said by Wendell Phillips
Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty; power is ever stealing from the many to the few.
In part, We the People have failed in our own Civic Duty...That of Vigilance. Granted, I see signs of Vigilance waking up again in this country, but
it has been sooo long. Is Vigilance waking up in time to avoid the use of violence to correct the problem? The only way to still render correction
is to physically remove the criminals from the Offices in which We the People vested certain Powers. The Constitution (specifically,
the Bill of Rights) enumerates certain peaceful actions we can take, but the criminal impostors in our Offices have already proven that they're
willing to ignore any peaceful resolution.
Yet, what was it that put Vigilance to sleep in the first place? One major contributing factor was the Elites' "subsidizing" of our Public
Education. They started by using the Lawful Taxation of the States & turning it back around; They used the States' own Taxes by saying, "We'll give
you X money for your Schools, but you have to include this
(or remove that
) in your curriculum." Yeah, this amounts to bribing the
States with money taken from their own pockets...Thus began the "deliberate dumbing down" of America.
We can see now how well that worked...People began to think the government was actually trying to help
us when more money went to our schools,
"Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories."
And we the People forgot...
"Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty."
For how long now have We the People been complaining about our degenerating system of education? And how much have "lobbyists" & "special interest
groups" been clamoring for the government to intervene for us, when we have always had the Right & the capacity to fix the problem ourselves? In
short, how dumb have we become, to trust the very catalyst itself to fix a problem that it created?
Well Marg, you did hit the nail squarely...Your aim is impeccable. Governments have never
been trustworthy, all down through the entire history
of human civilization & We the People forgot that. We the People become lax our vigilance against tyranny & We the People are paying the price.
But there's a new factor in modern times that We the People never had before in history...Free access to Information! Although the government is
trying hard to clamp down on the free nature of information through the internet, for the first time in history, the "common people" have had access
to information that governments usually suppress...And it seems that we're not going to give it up without some kind of fight.
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."
"Information is the currency of democracy."
The Self-Styled Elite in our world know this! Those people who have been in Power have known that the control of access to information
only way to maintain that Power! This is why the government always seeks to censor education, media & libraries from telling the truth. One of the
first things a conqueror does, upon taking over in a new area, is to re-write history, then "re-educate" the young; This has been applied
universally as a goal in every expanding empire throughout history!
Democracies always destroy themselves...This is another truth of history. Why is that?
"A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine."
Another downside to this is, once 49% of People have lost their Rights, the government seeks a way to make that same loss apply to the other 51% as
well! By the Constitution, our Officers must uphold the Constitution & the Bill of Rights
, regardless of Public Opinion! This is what the
concept of Rule by Law is all about!
This is why the US Founding Forefathers didn't want a Democracy...By Oath of Office under the
(Article 4, Section 4, Clause 3):
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion;
and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
In this context, Republican means "representative" government under the Constitution.
So what's with all of this "spread of Democracy" & the "defense of Democracy" coming out of our Government Offices? By condoning/supporting a
Democracy, they've already acted in Breech of Oath & have self-revoked their "authority" to act in the name of that Office! In essence, at the
first occasion when any Government Officer acts in Breech of Oath, they've just fired themselves & must be removed from Office
! Continuing to
occupy said Office is a separate Crime
, that of acting as an impostor
to a Government Officer! In essence, we don't need to overthrow
the government; They've already fired themselves & it only remains for We the People to remove them from Office & indict them under their Crimes in a
Constitutional, Article 3 Court of Law under the Common Law jurisdiction, for their Crimes against Civil & Individual Rights!
Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.
The difference today, different from the rest of history, is that We the People have worldwide, individual communication at our fingertips...No need
to rely on our education coming directly from TPTB! We can educate & illuminate each other with no government "go-between." In essence, we can now
(As Jefferson phrased it) "Educate & inform" each other without government interference. This is why it's so important to keep corporate &
government censorship out
of the internet! They want
us to be dumb; They want
us to be blind.
Empires have been built on the control of information & who has access to it...Empires fall because government never "produces" anything of value &
sucks vitality out of the economy with its very existence. To survive, an Empire must expand...Should the NWO actually achieve an empire encompassing
the whole world, what will happen when a government that big
must expand or die? Any government that grows big is only "over-eating" itself
into self-destruction as it sucks vitality out of the very society it controls!
"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government."
Since the internet was taken into the Public hands on an individual basis, eyes have begun to open! Now, worldwide society has its first opportunity
to develop into its own one-world humanity, by being in communication with each other..."They" fear this because it means the beginning of their end
to claims of Power. "They" must keep the masses ignorant to hold that Power that was stolen from us in the first place. In short, humanity
to advance in "social evolution," while government seeks only to retard that social evolution through enforced ignorance.
All Political Power originates
from the People; This has been the truth of history, today & the future. No government can function or survive
without the support & tolerance of the People being governed. Now that "they" have been losing control of their stolen Powers, they will resort to
to try to regain it, but once knowledge has been released, it can never again be contained. This
is the turning point in our
history that may lead to either "Biblical Armageddon" or "social harmony" worldwide. The direction that humanity goes depends largely upon
...The generations living on the cusp of the Information Age!
This is why Obama is on the wrong track...Because he's just staying on the very same track
that got humanity into the mess its been suffering
from down through history! One way or another, that track is rapidly coming to its end...And these self-styled elite refuse to see it coming! At the
very least, even if they see it, they refuse to correct themselves due to greed & power-lust & heading for the inevitable crash when their train
reaches the end of the line.
Doesn't this constitute "insanity?" Should the insane be allowed to govern in any society?
