IF they get off their duffs and vote. Fact is however, that many Americans have not taken the time to research. Most Americans do not believe or do
not know that these Executive Orders exist. The majority does not know the real issues and the majority are still caught up in the left right nonsense
and are in love with the drama of the in fighting.
That being said, the majority may change. People are becoming more aware. The question is will they become aware before the end game is reached? I
personally do not think so.
This is exactly what I'm talking about, you are correct, people do not vote.
But, not only do they not vote, they seem to believe, rather ignorantly, that voting is the last of their responsibility, when it comes to
And, by that, I am in no way making that claim against any one person within this thread, directly nor indirectly, it is a statement of fact without
What you stated about the citizens not knowing what an Executive Order
because of a lack of research, is dead on, for most American's.
Quote from : Wikipedia : Executive Order
An executive order in the United States is an order issued by the President, the head of the executive branch of the federal government.
In other countries, similar edicts may be known as decrees, or orders-in-council.
Executive orders may also be issued at the state level by a state's Governor or at the local level by the city's Mayor.
U.S. Presidents have issued Executive Orders since 1789, usually to help officers and agencies of the Executive branch manage the operations within
the Federal Government itself.
Executive orders do have the full force of law since issuances are typically made in pursuance of certain Acts of Congress, some of which specifically
delegate to the President some degree of discretionary power (delegated legislation), or are believed to have their authority for issuances based in a
power inherently granted to the Executive by the Constitution.
It is these cited or perceived justifications made by a President when authoring Executive Orders that have come under criticism for exceeding
Executive authority and have been subject to legal proceedings even at various times throughout U.S. history concerning the legal validity or
justification behind an order's issuance.
I know you know what it is, you quoted me, citing it, my posting the definition there was simply a means of showing just how easy it is today, to look
something up, whereas when I was a child and teenager, and assuming we're in close approximation of age (I'm 36), I know when words like
came up in news stories, or newspapers, I had to pull out a dictionary at
age 10, 11, or 12, or a Thesaurus, or go to the library later and research it.
I know for a fact most American's are too damn lazy, or they ask their parents.
I never bothered with asking my parents, after a while, because the answer always became by rote, look it up, so I cut out the middle-man and did it
Add to that that I remembered the numbers, I began looking them up, or cross-referencing them in the library with Government information fully
available to every citizen, whether you find it in a law book, or a book about the Constitution, most citizens are lazy, not all, but most.
I was taught at an early age, 6 years old, that the United States Government, does not do anything with half-measures, and everything they do, they do
it according to a law, however, it is in the interpretation of those laws, words, actions behind the words, and the content, context, and intent of
those words which matters, which is why my posts, threads, and replies are so verbose, lenghty, and legal sounding.
I know legalese inside out, upside down, and could walk a courtroom just like a lawyer, and could mop the floor with an F.B.I. Agent on Constitutional
I began learning about Government, at age 6, my stepfather a Vietnam era Marine, taught me that knowing what Government is up to, at all times, is a
good idea, because they do all sorts of things legal and illegal.
It is not however The Government
so to speak, doing these actions, but certain men and women, within the confines of our Governmental
In other words, they are acting, with an agenda, and while in the employ of the Government, they are acting with some sort of intent, and that while
it may not be the actual "Government"
, it is someone who actually represents that entity, we call "Government"
That being said, it is not every single individual within Government, doing these actions, like what the original poster's links and video stated, it
is one, or two, or even twenty individuals, with agendas commiting these actions.
In order to look at the entire Government, you must look at it not as an entity, per se, but as a giant creature or human, and for each action
commited by each branch, or each agency within a branch, it is like the flex of a muscle, the twitch of the toes on a foot, or a head turning.
Remember, during WWII, the saying "the sleeping giant has awoken"
That reference never left me when I learned it, and it embodies each action of what our Government does, in our name, whether we want that action to
happen or not, it is a creature or giant human, that acts out.
And we as citizens, are a part of that insanely huge body, think of us if you will as the lifeblood within giant veins, and the roads, subways,
airlines as capillaries, blood system, and musculature, and our Government acts.
It would be like America itself is the huge body of this beast, and the Government is just one part of this creature, and we as citizens are another
part of it.
So, that being said, the Executive Branch, Leglislative Branch, and Juducial Branch are like the brains of the operation, so this explains why our
country is so screwed, a bunch of ignorant and dead brain cells are running it.
If we as citizens, do not get new blood into the brains, it rots through corruption.
Oh yeah, the Internet is like the Central Nervous system with everyone being online now, which is why and how the entire process of the cashless
society will come into play later, after some of the actions happen.
Actions, which we as American citizens may not survive, ever.
