“when in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…." –some thoughts on Indepedence Day   Leave a comment

July 4th, 2010. Independence Day, current.

It’s been two hundred thirty-four years yet we haven’t understood the lessons of history nearly as well as our founders did, though they had two hundred thirty-four less years of history to learn from.  Racial unrest despite legislation, cultural standards, taboos, and the elimination of any possible legal wrangling by which those with  a racist bent can get away with depriving a single individual of their liberties.  Cynical political gamesmanship that pits every possible group against each other.  A media so devoid of journalistic integrity, common sense, and moral values that few blink when one of them declares a sitting President — and – I — quote — is “sort of God.” (Evan Thomas, ed. Newsweek). Damn.

That being said, what a phenomenal position we are in!  In real-time we are witnessing the final evaporation of the cultural poison that’s infected our political body for so long time we stopped noticing it’s effects. The poison had brought the body to near ruin.  Fortunately this parasite of Statism, this poison, will not kill the host.

Thank all that has reason that the calm, rational voices (with mercifully few exceptions) of the limited government, constitutional literalists, and tea parties have spoken loud and clear and have said “enough”.  The States are hearing these voices, as are the Courts. Even a few courageous Senators and Congressman are getting the message loud and clear. We will have our independence from the overreaching authority of the  federal government.  So many are finally getting it that even the liberal wing nuts in the media are acknowledging that this President and this Congress have lost the consent of the governed.

For those of you who’ve condemned opposition to the Progressive agenda as out of touch, racist, clueless, ignorant, greedy, or (fill in your favorite adjective) — those of you still hooked on the koolaid — its time you guys wake up as well.  You who believe we with a conservative or libertarian streak simply woke up a few days after Nov. 6th, 2009 and ( after many of us voted for this Congress and this President) suddenly decided “hey, let’s go out and complain about a black president” clearly are deflecting. Gotta ask: where the hell have you been and what friggin’ election results did you watch?

Congress has had the approval rating approaching that of foot fungus for years. The entrenchment of the two parties and their respective bases has been here for years.This and yet the President won by large margins, with much of his support coming from the “teabagging rednecks” you now wish to vilify.  The earthquake you feel under your feet is the tremble of discontent that has been building for a hell of a long time. You guys were just too strung out on all the “hope and change”, all the “I feel your pain”, all the “ask not what your country..” that you forgot that the resentment against corrupt “change” has been here a long time. It wasn’t brought by the election of the new black guy at 1600 Pa. Ave.

Change was brought to our Republic while we continued to endure for decades (in resigned silence) the results of the kool-aid of collectivism, socialism, mysticism, and straight on tyranny. Many of you had no idea it was going on. You guys didn’t care. You were lovin’ the socialization and the progressivisation of America. You were distracted  by pluggin’ in to your Ipod, cashing in on Reagan’s eighties, freakin’ on Yasger’s farm, and crying for the Rosenberg’s.  You failed to notice a damn thing till G.W. Bush went ballistic on people who wish us dead  and were actively seeking such.

I’m reminded of the document whose signing we observe in reverence on this very day. I’m reminded of a line in which Thomas Jefferson aptly describes the situation facing the colonies and describes the sort of thinking that leads to tyranny:

all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed

The fact is we on the Conservative/Libertarian side have simply been paying attention a hell of a lot longer. We’ve been  watching a lot closer lately.  We kind of like the whole freedom from tyranny and federal authority thing.

When we dealt with T. Roosevelt, we failed to stop the “Progress”.   We endured W. Wilson and got clobbered, taxed, jailed, smeared, and WW One’d  into shutdown mode.

When Hoover came, few of us saw that loser coming.  When F.D.R., the darling of the left, came and turned on the “change” — when he turned the nation on to fascism with a happy face in the form of a monthly retirement check or government cheese — we temporarily got dosed with the smile on the koolaid pitcher.  When he could only get us out of the depression his policies had created by joining WWII and by creating a labor tax; when he stuck around for an unprecedented 3+ terms,  we changed that Constitution real quick like to make sure his kind can’t stay too long.

Kennedy getting us nearly nuked made us shake in fear.  Nixon made us cringe in disgust. Ford gave us a disgusted yet bemused chuckle. Still, we endured and stayed relatively silent.

Carter made us cry over our over taxed beer while he failed to get  our guys home and empowered those who now  prepare our nation’s elimination.  Silence,  respect and deference to our Constitution and its process is what you got  from us.

Reagan inspired some of us. Others worried whether his fingers were in very criminal pies.  Bush 1 kept us gagged into silence. He sold us out when we read his lips.  Bill Clinton just made us gag.  Bush 2 opened Pandora’s box with

“I’ve abandoned free market principles to save the free market system”. and “Islam is a religion of peace” (our message regarding osama, bin alhid, et. al.: “shoot to kill, shoot to kill”)

You who will dare claim we  are just feeling a bit sour grapy over electing a bit of “hope and change” and who keep asking us”where were you when…” : You use the Bush sidestep to avoid the issue at hand. You conveniently forget the last, you know, seventy years or so.  We were here.  We were listening and were watching. We are now wondering about you guys. You just recently awoke, momentarily, merely to gripe over Bush. We’ve gotta as.: “where the hell were you”?

Unlike you all we have reason to be a bit shook up over the “fundamental transformation” sold to us as a very different bill of goods than what has come.  We’d  been sleeping, you see. We were enjoying the peaceful slumber that comes from knowing you have a decent security system on the house, that there’s a watch dog outside, and that 911 is only a phone call away.  oh, wait.  911…let me think…

For those who care about liberty; those who understand what it means — for those who recognize and weep over the blood spilled  by patriots and martyrs that keeps liberty’s tree watered — 9/11 was the wake up call.  We woke up to the fact that all too often you can’t get to the phone and make that call to 9/11 because someone ripped the phone from the wall.

We came to understand that many are fully prepared to shoot the dog barking at them.  Sadly, our new apologizer in chief and our power-lusting Congress are turning off the security system of Capitalism and border security.  They hate and ridicule the notion of peace in strength. They will never subscribe to Jefferson’s creed of  “eternal hostility over every form of tyranny over the minds of men.”

We do and we will.

Forgive us if we don’t smile and politely go away just so that you can continue to comfortably suck down the kool aid and enable the parasite of corruption and entitlement that has fed off America.   For our Nation’s survival we will not go back to sleep again.  When you ask “why, oh why..are you complaining now”, when you insist, umm what was it John Stewart demanded we  do..”shut the fuck up” was it?, well we’ve got to laugh. we laugh  because we understand the words of Jefferson:

But 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, and to provide new Guards for their future security

In the tradition of the Declaration, I’ll offer my take on why America is demanding it’s Independence today.  As it was in 1776, we have tyrants in our midst.  Just like Jefferson, Madison. Adams, Franklin, Paine, Washington, Hamilton, Revere, and so many others, quiet and wise, we have history to view. We have two hundred thirty-four more years of it than our founders had.  We also have  a list of grievances they left . We we can compare our abuses and usurpations to theirs:

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

— as in the Congress and the Administration’s opposition to their own federal law mandating the federal government’s responsibility to protect the border.  As in the Federal govt’s opposition to states reflecting in the language of their own laws the federal law — and then, lo and behold — enforcing these laws.   As in the President lacking in  common sense understanding of the language of the Constitution in respect to the first amendment, the second amendment, the seventh amendment, the ninth and tenth amendments.

open calls for the fairness doctrine to limit free speech, dismissal of the clear language of the second amendment protections of the right to bear arms , trial by public ridicule and then extortion of “damages” by shame instead of a civil trial by jury for businesses not up to the Presidents high standards. Forcing through grossly Unconstitutional health care mandates and policy against the wishes of the majority of the nation which elected him.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

— As in Congress and the President summoning recalcitrant  business leaders for failing to act slower than govt  demanded they should when the govt rammed through changes to oil drilling law and procedure.  We experienced an accident which must  logically follow not  adequately studying and then adopting a brand new procedure and providing proper new safety standards.  Of course, as punishment,  govt  just  needed to extort money to fix Congress’ and the President’s own mistakes.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

— As in bully pulpit nullification of State law by the President (say it with me..a r i z o n a ! !), as well as in  arbitrary redistricting of districts that might be troublesome for the next election.  There’s also Senators elected thanks to Unconstitutional changes to the Constitution itself via court rulings. There are as well Supreme and Federal court nullification of state laws which are deemed to not fit the times such as Prop 8 and state gun laws.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

— As in the President summarily dismissing the authority of the Supreme Court and the Federal Courts when he disapproves of their decisions — and making his plans to circumvent them. Just consider his reaction and his announcements following the SCOTUS decisions on campaign donations and gun law.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

— as in federal regulators barging into private businesses to enforce the 45,000 federal regulations on the books, one shopkeeper at a time.  As in czars aplenty with no accountability to the states, to congress, or to the people.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

— oops, my bad..not yet. But with the President calling for a “civilian defense, just as powerful, just as strong” as the military…and, oh.., and, ugh, …why? defense from who?

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

— as in some within Congress, as well as the President, administration officials, (and perhaps the newest Supreme Court justice supporting the submission of the United States Constitution and its sovereign authority to international law.  As in subordinating the culture and the people to the moral code, if not the “legal” practice of collectivism and to Islamic Sharia.

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

— as in who in govt on the left or the right doesn’t advocate for regulation, taxes,  and controls that encourage or create restrictions on free and fair trade and result in the business community  left no option but to ship jobs elsewhere in the world?  anyone? anyone?  For stopping that alone. I vote for and work for a candidate for office.

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

PLEASE…., are ya kidding?

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

— as in any business owner prosecuted under anti-trust or any drug arrestees who (with good sense) plea bargain. Ak those just how the trial by jury went.

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

“We are three days away from Fundamentally transforming America” — Barack Obama, 2008.

Responding to a question regarding the Constitutionality of the (then)  health care proposal :  “are you serious, are you serious…” — Nancy Pelosi, 2009.

Responding to  a sitting member of Congress demanding that Geithner explain where (very specifically) in the Constitution the Fed got its authority to nationalize the banking industry: Secretary of the Treasury Timothy (Turbo Tax Tim) Geithner:  “under the laws of the land, of course…”.

Explaining her position on the Federal gov’t enforcing its own laws in regard to immigration:  Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi: “it’s UnAmerican”.

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

— as in the chair of the Federal Reserve refusing to acknowledge any limits on the power of the federal reserve when questioned by a sitting congressman.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

— as in the President refusing to state specifically, in very simple terms, that we are at war with radical Islam and that Islamofascists  and their ideology are the enemy we are fighting,  thus  ceding the ground to an enemy he will not name.

— As in the President stating in his own written word that if battle lines are drawn between the United States and radical Islam he will side with radical Islam.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

see above

My friends drunk with glee over the idea you can shame us down with “what rights have been taken away?” type of questions: we actually have answers to that question…and a hell of a lot of others as well.  This is because we know that our Congress and President are clueless, and are pitiless. We know that they are wannabe kings and are (whether by design or by default) delivering us into “benevolent dictatorship”.

A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

November 6th, 2009 seems a like long way off today. Not so for the Left, I’d imagine.  They were too damn excited. They moved so fast they forgot to keep things steady and woke up that sleeping giant.  A very special November awaits this year. There are a couple more coming till the Nobampelosiprinceharry trifecta find their butts kicked to the curb, along with all on the left who support them. The traitorous sell outs of freedom on the Right know also that these November’s are coming.  There is a whole lot more than just voting which needs doing to clear out the poison in the veins. We will get it done.  What is wonderful to know is that our Constitution has within it such small yet powerful devices which  we can engage  to protect and ensure our future. These were designed by those who understood:

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Happy Independence Day.
