A New American Revolution – Part I

I’ve been saying for at least 30 years now, that what this country needs is another revolution to put us back on track.

It’s no secret that our “elected representatives” don’t represent US. They represent themselves, their personal interests, and the interests of all the corporations and special iterest groups who finance them.

Someone at News With Views seems to feel the same way:

THE NEW AMERICAN REVOLUTION
PART 1 of 3

On Thursday, March 6, 2008 Congressman Ron Paul posted a 7-minute video on his website officially ending his presidential campaign. The Republican Texan, who ran on a libertarian platform, said that while he has suspended his bid for the White House, his “campaign for freedom will continue in this new phase…” calling for a convention in Washington, DC on June 21. Without defining what it was, Dr. Paul said: “I don’t mind playing a key role in this revolution, but it has to be more than a Ron Paul revolution.” What we have here is the rebirth of the Republican Revolution. Only, this time around, it will be a people-orchestrated revolution where the conservative voters of America, inspired by Dr. Paul, take back their nation through the House of Representatives and the US Senate.

Ron Paul Campaign spokesman Jesse Benton confirmed on Friday, Mar. 7 that Congressman Ron Paul recognized that he would not be the GOP nominee. The “…campaign,” he said, “is winding down. Dr. Paul acknowledges that he will not be the nominee but will continue to travel to address supporters and encourage grassroots activism to influence the process and return the Republican Party to its traditions of limited government and personal freedom.” Yet, the Texas Congressman is still campaigning in the hopes of collecting more delegates than the 45 he currently controls, believing the more delegates he secures before the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis the better chance he has of getting a primetime slot for speechmaking at the Convention on Labor Day.

Ron Paul is the only one I’m voting for. If he’s not on the ballot, I’m writing his name in. I refuse to give any of the other globalist puppets my vote. My days of voting for the ‘lesser of two evils’ are over.

I have felt for years that our elections were nothing more than an illusion that our votes actually counted. Think about it for a moment……..IF your vote actually counted for anything, WHY are the campaigns so dependent on delegates and super delegates (where the hell did super delegates come from anyway?). The voice of the people cannot be heard IF the delegates vote the way they want and ignore what the people want……..I think the 2000 elections proved that. I absolutely refuse to cast my vote for any of the two choices the “elite” have decided on. The elite do NOT represent me, or you. They are ensuring their own interests. The people be damned.

Ron Paul’s task during the 111th and 112th Congress will be to protect the Constitution of the United States and assure that the uninterrupted protection of the Bill of Rights continues—not as Congressman Ron Paul, but as Speaker of the House Ron Paul.

Ron Paul is but one of a very small handful of our so-called “elected representatives” who believes in the Constitution and fights to protect it………thereby protecting us, We The People.

The Constitution of the United States provides the blueprint of liberty for its citizens and for those who lawfully reside within its borders. It is not a doormat at our borders for foreign globalists to wipe their feet on as they enter. Nor is it an archaic set of rules for domestic utopians to manipulate because the rule of law does not conform to their view of what the world should look like. Nor is it a “get-out-of-jail-free” card for corrupt politicians. Nor is it a piggy bank for corrupt money barons who believe their wealth entitles them to special privilege and special laws that penalize their competition while providing them with blank checks on the US Treasury a the expense of the people.

This is what is at stake here. Not just our rights as guaranteed in the Constitution that the administration wants to remove, but the very sovereignty of our nation. Our founding fathers had a vision, they had incredible foresight, and it is our duty to honor and respect that.

When told by his staff that he couldn’t do something as it was restricted by the Constitution, George W. Bush, yes the president himself (who swore an oath to protect the Constitution) said “stop throwing the constitution in my face, it’s just a goddamned piece of paper“.

Where is our outrage over that statement? Why weren’t the people up in arms condemning him for that statement? Does that appear to be someone who actually wants to protect and defend the Constitution?

If you haven’t read the Declaration of Independence lately, it should be of interest to those in governance to see what set off the patriotic rabble of that day and what caused Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin to say: “…a long train of abuses and usurpations…[designed] to reduce [the people] under absolute despotism. [In such cases] it is [the right of the people], it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new safeguards for their future security…The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over the States.” It is important to note, here, that Franklin, Jefferson and Adams were talking about a foreign government that controlled the lives of the American people from a distant port. However, it is essential for our own government to turn back the pages of history and understand what that foreign government did which caused the shot “heard around the world.”

That government—England—refused to consent to administer one set of laws to govern all the people, She chose instead to selectively enforce the law to benefit some people and to hamstring or punish others. That government obstructed the colonial laws regarding the naturalization of foreigners in the United States, and changed the laws concerning migration. That government obstructed justice by making judges obedient to them and abridging the laws of the colonies whenever it served the purpose of that superior government. England created a bureaucracy and sent out “hither swarms of officers to harass [the] people.” England also made the colonial military independent of civilian jurisdiction, allowing them to function without the consent of that civilian authority. In addition, it depriving Americans of trials by jury; and, increasingly, transporting Americans “…beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses”—and most of all, for taxing Americans without their consent.” While our central government contends that we are taxed with “our consent” since those we elect to represent us, the simple reality is when legislators are allowed to accept bribes from lobbyists for special interest groups it is not us they represent but the special interest groups. Congress has been effectively hijacked by the wealthy elite who rape America by stealing the sweat equity we invested to make this nation great.

You can read the Declaration of Independence here.

George Washington once said Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.

These days, this quote appears to be very true. For our government means to enslave us.

When you examine the parallels carefully you are almost forced to conclude that this is very likely America’s last chance to take back its nation or surrender to the globalists who believe world government is the gateway to Utopia. Around the corner is the complete abrogation of national sovereignty as the North American Union becomes a reality that no citizen in the United States, Canada or Mexico wants. Nor do the citizens of Central or South American want to absorbed into a hemispheric American Union in which their national identity is subverted by their more powerful northern neighbor as the regionalization of the world’s economies and currencies bring the nations of the world towards the biblical world government that leads to Armageddon.

And for this reason, We The People must take back what has been handed down and entrusted to us. We must not let ourselves drop the ball. We must show that our founding fathers, and all those before us who fought and died for freedom and liberty, did not do so in vain.

A couple of more quotes from George Washington:

The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.

The time is now near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed, and themselves consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them. The fate of unborn millions will now depend on God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die.

Stay tuned for Part II.

One Response to “A New American Revolution – Part I”

  1. I feel the same way. I have felt for several years tht this one great nation will become a 3rd world contry. It will happen at the hands of our so called government and the money hungry companies that help run the government. We are heading to be a doomed country. When will the people wake up and take notice?
