CARSON: Did you really hear what I said?
America’s so tired of intimidation, distraction games
To the people who ascribe to the theory of “it’s the law we should enforce it irregardless” miss the feckless attempts to wrest freedom from our grasp. As if a ‘poorly written’, unread law voted on by only one party could who sway over all of America. They missed the point of how precious is the gift of freedom that only God can bestow on us and cannot be taken by force or legislation. This re-fighting of WW1 style trench warfare, with the threat of poisonous gas and machine guns, favored by both parties do not realize that a Tank of discontented, disenfranchised will roll over both parties come next election day. This forgotten majority need to courageously raise its head and realize that the slings and arrows of their keepers of the political ‘status quo’ do not hold sway over them as long as they vote for personal liberty and freedom. There is no idea more powerful than the one whose time has come.
Remember this, NO one believed that the original 16 colonies, who could not agree over a lite beer, could manged to wrest it’s fate from the all powerful British naval superiority. After the victory they wrestled and debated but eventually came together and wrote a federal constitution modeled much on “The Magna Carta, the English Bill of Rights, the Mayflower Compact, the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut, the Declaration of Independence, and the Articles of Confederation.”
It has been in the crucibles and experimentation’s of the now 50 states, all trying different approaches of the concept, ‘can Man govern himself’. When the federal government oversteps it’s constitutional authority to impose it’s will on all , everyone loses some of the bloodstained concepts and hopes of freedom and liberty bestowed by Our Creator.
I read and see many of our elected leaders are still involved in the childish rule of foursquare where one makes up rules to retaining control of square a as if playing the game was their highest achievement and retaining power is the only goal and I pray for some mature statesman to stand and say the goal is individual freedom that comes from individual responsibility. To do any deal with the devil is a bad deal. And we need to ascribe to a higher ideal than one passed by The Raiders founder AL Davis, “Just win Baby”.
We all say like our military does,
“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960)”
We need to hold our elected officials to their oaths as well,
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
I like the 1789 oath for congress’
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States.” It is simple and easy to understand why we all need to know what the Constitution really says and it’s limits and structure and its attempts to insulates from one group of people holding sway over another and usurp the power of the individual.
Bad laws need to be changed or abolished. Being drunk with power is far worse than being drunk from any other substance. We fight by voting and by debating and discussing, do not be silenced by your critics hissing and guffaws.
