America Must ‘Patriot Up’
PATRIOT: ‘A person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors.’
The roots of America’s greatness are deeply steeped in the wisdom of our Constitution. Our many successes come from the attraction to and application of that very rule of law protecting the freedoms for personal ambition and the unrestrained competitive prowess for our commerce.
Enemies and detractors include those who would take this very lifeblood from our warm bodies while we are still alive as well as those who would take our liberty and our guns from our cold dead hands. Turncoat politicians are truly becoming those very enemies and detractors who are allowing and creating our demise by not upholding their oaths to our Constitution yet acting like they’ve been working for us while spending endlessly, creating enormous unconstitutional micromanaging agencies and bureaucracies putting tens of thousands of restraining regulations on us, passing too many laws restricting our freedoms and ruining our commerce often with marching orders from the devious Council On Foreign Relations (CFR) in lockstep with the corrupt United Nations.
IT’S NOT ABOUT POLITICAL PARTIES
Quoting former U.S. Rep. Dick Armey and Matt Kibbe in their book ‘Give Us Liberty,’ “Say what you want about political parties, they are always intellectually and morally inferior to principles and good ideas. The sole purpose of a political party is to get candidates elected. Too often the candidate of one party could have just as easily run on the opposing political party’s ticket. Political parties are empty vessels, adrift on tides that can shift with the winds of political opinion. “Principles, on the other hand, are different. Good ideas stand up to scrutiny. The right principles and the best ideas pass the test of time. They do not change based on the latest public opinion polling; they cannot be twisted like those dials on the machines experts use to measure the emotional intensity of a person’s response during a focus group. “The principles of individual freedom, fiscal responsibility, and constitutionally limited government are what define the Tea Party ethos. They bind us as a social movement. And that makes the Tea Party better than a political party—something that can sustain itself the day after the first Tuesday in November, when all of the yard signs come down and all of the campaign volunteers go back to the daily routines of their normal lives. The Tea Party is a far more potent force for social change in America because it will sustain itself beyond the next candidate’s election.”
WHAT WE HAVE NOW
The Machiavellian, Trojan horse administration in Washington led by a duplicitous, serial liar is being allowed to continue disassembling America as we’ve known it by a highly politicized and orchestrated Congress that allows him to usurp his authority and fundamentally transform our heretofore wonderful America to his socialist liking by fiat. Not to mention how he has made a shambles of our national integrity, image and international relationships. The dereliction of Congress’s responsibilities to our Constitution and thusly our people is happening because we are letting it happen. We are sitting by watching our elected representatives who took an oath to protect our Constitution and follow law abdicate their sworn responsibilities to follow the edicts of the ‘wrong people,’ i.e. the power brokers and CFR/UN orchestrated party machines with ulterior designs that are diametrically opposed to the continuation of our republic.
These very legislators are truly traitors to their oaths and thusly these United States. They need to be removed from office with haste at the ballot boxes to be replaced with genuine patriots who do the bidding of the citizens’ Constitution because they take their oaths very seriously.
If you’re not feeling almost overwhelmed from about all the news we’re exposed to anymore on national and state issues, then God help us because you’re either ‘tuned out’ from not caring enough or just can’t listen to it anymore. Either way, this inattentiveness and inaction is the biggest problem in America today! America’s waning future cries for its citizens’ attention and involvement. Without asserted pressure from enough citizens these bad/corrupt elected officials will just keep on letting America dissolve away from our Constitutional based freedoms and commerce until we simply are no more. Believe it! The insanity of Socialism and its redistribution is that it kills revenue producing commerce and eventually there’s just not enough of other peoples’ money.
Most Americans don’t like our current reality. But, it is what it is. And America as we’ve known it is going away. Are you going to just sit idly and continue luffing in the wind or are you going to ‘Patriot Up’ and help put a stop to the insanity and nonsense of both our sorry Congress and this ‘socialistic steering,’ and inept Administration. Disgusted Americans want to do something but are feeling so overwhelmed they just can’t envision how they can make a difference. The answer begins with getting educated on facts, informing others and then replacing the turncoats with genuine effective patriots.
WHAT WE MUST DO!
There’s a very simple way of identifying which elected representatives need replacing in our Idaho statehouse and in Congress in Washington. You study The Freedom Indexes for both bodies which shows exactly how they vote with criteria in keeping with the Constitution and then cull them at the voting box. Here in Idaho The Freedom Index is published by IdahoFreedomIndex.com. For the U.S. Congress see “The Freedom Index at JBS.org: A Congressional Scorecard Based on the U.S. Constitution” rates congressmen based on their adherence to constitutional principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, national sovereignty, and a traditional foreign policy of avoiding foreign entanglements. In the two year, 113th Congress just completed this January, here is how abysmally our congressmen and senators in Washington, D.C. voted with the Constitution: U.S. House 47% and U.S. Senate 36%. So there you see now why we are where we are.
Don’t count on a thing politicians say, only believe what you see and judge them on how they vote!
The terrible voting records revealed in the two The Freedom Indexes, is exactly the explanation for why we are rapidly becoming a socialistic society and our Republic is in danger of evolving into losing our national sovereignty and becoming first a member state of a regional government, the North American Union overseen by the corrupt UN, and then a world government run by unaccountable, unelected global power elitists who know what’s best for us.
AMERICA MUST BE RESTORED
To restore America back in line with the original tenets of our Constitution we must first accept one absolute fact. Socialism fails and capitalism succeeds. Simple as that. The late, not so great Soviet Union’s socialist’s citizens experienced a life of guarantees for all the necessities of life, meager as it was: Education, Home (make that apartment,) Job, Medical Care & Retirement. Literally everything was decided on and taken care of by government. Missing, however, was one basic ingredient to make it all work.
Work. Work that would have provided the money that would have come from taxes had Government Controls not squashed the environment for entrepreneurs and investors to thrive. Government magic was an illusion.
What has made America run is vibrant business in the free marketplace of a capitalist system. Productivity and its subsequent profit are absolutely necessary for our success as a nation.
True freedom is pure capitalism. Capitalism is the freedom to win at starting a business or investment and cannot and must not provide ‘subsidized’ guarantees for those that attain less. Failure is a lesson learned well and one moves on, strengthened from the experience. One can strive to achieve all he wants or adjust to what levels of accomplishment he attains. Businesses accountably making a profit, subsequently creating commerce and providing jobs are the root sources of all governments’ funding. A growing economy that creates more tax paying employees will bring in more revenue than higher tax rates and new taxes which conversely hurt us.
CRIES FOR A NATIONAL COMMITMENT
TO REVERSAL AND NULLIFICATION
‘BIGGER THAN PUTTING A MAN ON THE MOON’
I believe if we overnight, magically, got perfect patriots in all states and in Washington DC to start doing good by their oaths and their constituents going forward without eliminating existing unconstitutional agencies, bureaus, laws and regulations that are already in place we would still be destined to not survive. We just have too much stacked against us, with the strangling regulations built into unfair trade laws such as the North America Free Trade Agenda (NAFTA), the corruption or incompetence: of the National Labor Relations Board, the Internal Revenue Service, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the Justice Department (JD), the Federal Reserve Board, (FRB) etc, etc…..The latest audacious and corrupt abuse of power: Just this week FEMA announced they will not support any state’s catastrophes if that state is not supporting what we know as their outrageous bogus claims of climate change, which has been debunked by most of the credible scientific weather community and is revealed in the article ‘Global-warming Skeptics Know More Climate Science, Study Shows’ written by Alex Newman which is featured in this issue of GSP. This is a massive extortion scheme by Al Gore, Obama, other power elites and “the UN and its oftentimes brutal member regimes that still intend to impose devastating policies on humanity later this year,” as Newman states in his article. They will collect billions in their scheme.
The radio talk show host Scott Hennon in his book ‘Grass Roots – A Common Sense Action Agenda for America,’ states: “When the founding fathers crafted our Constitution, they established a government with restricted powers and restrained responsibilities. You find the scope of our government outlines in Article I, Section 8: taxation, coinage, national defense, the court system, post offices, roads and the repayment of debts. There’s nothing in Article I, Section 8 about government getting into the banking or automobile manufacturing business, or getting into the health insurance business, or controlling all the nation’s schools from Washington, D.C., or subsidizing various industries or the arts or public television.”
Our Constitution was created to govern the Government, not the people, and not the states, each of which is a guardian of its own sovereignty. The central government was created with strictly limited powers leaving the states to compete with one another to become the best state, the one with the least amount of taxation and controls, one where citizens would want to build a business and raise a family. That spirit of competition produced excellence as honest competition always does.
Idaho is not a territory of the United States! We are a sovereign state with states’ rights that supersede national government edicts. The states created the federal government, not the reverse! We must remove the shackles of dependent money we’ve allowed federal programs to use to control us. So we need legislators to work to that end or continue the socialist march toward failure. Idaho is tired of being told what we need to do by ‘Big Gov.’ And we want all of our God given Idaho land back now!!!
We must have a U.S. Congress of pure constitutionally hearted patriots who recognize the necessity of eliminating whole agencies, and bureaus of government, and abolishing the damaging laws and regulations of all the overstepping unconstitutional tentacles of big government. I suppose the biggest majority of citizens would probably not agree that this is possible or can’t imagine the undertaking. I also suppose the same might have been true if they were asked about the feasibility of putting a man on the moon in such a short time.
With acknowledgement of the necessity, and the same kind of determination and absolute commitment as putting a man on the moon, such a feat can be accomplished. The large task before us is for Americans to awaken to their responsibilities as freedom loving citizens to start paying attention to real facts, informing others and electing ‘real patriots’ with the dynamic zeal and hunger to right our ship before it sinks. There are only a couple handfuls of such patriots currently working on this in Washington. If you find that hard to believe check the Freedom Index at jbs.org.
THE CONSTITUTION IS THE BLUEPRINT FOR GOOD GOVERNMENT
Another quote from Rep. Armey and Mr. Kibbe’s book will wrap this up: “The miracle of the Constitution is the simple genius of limited government and its singular devotion to protecting individual liberty.“…The Government should be concerned with protecting my liberty, not my liver.
“The founders designed a government that was to do only that which was both right and necessary; the rest was to be left up to the states and individuals. It is simply the best organizational chart for running a society ever created. However, this division of labor only works if people mind their own business. The problem is that politicians and bureaucrats often do not know their limitations and make it their business to mind yours.”
To which I add, it is our fault for not paying attention, letting them get away with it and not replacing them.
