Just 8 Short Months To Decide

"My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!"
Thomas Jefferson

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."
Samuel Adams

"Give me liberty or give me death."
Patrick Henry

The 2008 presidential election is just eight short months away. That is both a good thing, and a bad thing. It is good because we will finally be rid of George W. Bush, unless of course something terrible happens and he uses all those unconstitutional powers he has granted himself and cancels the election, declares martial law, and declares himself King George.

The upcoming election is a bad thing as well. It is bad because look at who we have to choose from. We have Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, who are fighting bitterly for their parties nomination, although both are campaigning on pretty much the same issues. It is amazing how arrogant both of them are, thinking that they are best qualified to become president when neither of them seems to understand what powers the Constitution grants the president, or the government for that matter. I defy either of them to show me which Article and Clause in the Constitution grants them the power and authority to enact universal health care. Then again the American people aren't much wiser in that regard, otherwise they wouldn't have the support they do now.

Both Senator Clinton and Senator Obama seem to think they are the most qualified to become president, as they are so fond of reminding us. What a difference between these two and George Washington, who humbly accepted the call of the people to become our first president, "On the other hand, the magnitude and difficulty of the trust to which the voice of my country called me, being sufficient to awaken in the wisest and most experienced of her citizens a distrustful scrutiny into his qualifications, could not but overwhelm with despondence one who (inheriting inferior endowments from nature and unpracticed in the duties of civil administration) ought to be peculiarly conscious of his own deficiencies."

On the other side of the aisle we have Senator John McCain who, although he is running as a Republican, seems to be suffering from an identity crisis. Anyone who had taken the time to look into Senator McCain's stance on the issues would be forced to come to the conclusion that he cannot decide if he wants to be a Republican or a Democrat. And this is the best that the Republican Party has to offer?

Congressman Ron Paul was the best chance this country had of changing course and returning to a government based upon Constitutional principles, but his campaign was sabotaged by his own party, the media, and the puppet masters who actually run things in this country.

Although Ron Paul gathered a substantial amount of support I feel that he might be a bit naive in thinking that a true awakening has taken place in this country that will continue to spread his philosophy of government according to the Constitution.

Ron Paul supporters fall into two categories, those who have been aware for many years that our country is going down the tubes, and those who supported him based upon his stance on one particular issue.

Those of us who realize how serious things are in this country looked to Ron Paul almost as a ’last chance’ to save this country, at least within the system. Then there were those who supported Dr. Paul because of his stance on the war, or his stance on the FED and the IRS, or some other issue. I would hope that in supporting Dr. Paul their eyes may have been opened to some of the other issues that face us, but I am not holding my breath. Americans tend to have a very short memory and will soon forget about Ron Paul. Some will choose not to vote, others will vote Republican, because any Republican is better than a Democrat. Back to business as usual, while America and our Constitutionally guaranteed liberties continue circling the drain.

People just do not want to take the time to study the issues and the problems that face this nation, and that is something that those in power are counting on. There are two more quotes that I feel are appropriate at this time. The first is by Thomas Jefferson,

"We in America do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate.” The second is by General Douglas MacArthur, "No man is entitled to the blessings of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation."

How vigilant are the people of this country, how much do they participate? Not very much, of that I can assure you. To give you an example, most people where I work are aware that I am interested in politics and government. So I am often asked who I intended to vote for. I would, without hesitation, say Ron Paul. Nine times out of ten they would reply with, ‘Who’s that?’

It makes no difference if the supported him or opposed him, but to be aware of the issues, and the stances the candidates take on them, they should have at least watched a few of the many debates held by both parties. So they should have been at least aware of who Ron Paul was. There ignorance shows how uninformed they are, yet many of them still intend to vote. They will vote for Hillary because she is a woman, or Barack because he is black, or McCain because he is a POW. When I hear that reasoning I just want to scream and shake some sense into them. But then, what good would it do? People are too concerned with the cost of gas, or the economy. It would be too much to ask that they understood that all the problems this country faces have been orchestrated to bring us to a pre-planned destination, which is the end of our Constitutional form of government and the end of the sovereign United States.

Not too many people have heard of it, but there is a thing called the Hegelian Principle. What it boils down to is that a problem is created, this is called the thesis. Next there is an anti-thesis to generate opposition to the problem. The final step is synthesis, which provides a solution to the problem. This brings about change which would have been unacceptable unless it was offered as a solution to a problem.

Think about it this way. I am sure everyone has seen some form of gangster movie in which the mob terrorizes businesses and then offers them protection from that harassment, at a cost of course. Would the businesses have been willing to just pay the mob for no reason? Of course not, therefore a problem was created which required the solution the mob offered. That is Hegel’s Principle in a nutshell.

This principle has been used to condition the people of this country into accepting so many things that we would otherwise have found repulsive, and the cycle continues. Each solution brings problems of its own that require a new solution, which in turn bring about more problems, until the ultimate goal is achieved, whatever that goal may be.

This theory can be applied to the War in Iraq, the problem with illegal aliens, the current economic situation in America, the loss of our Constitutionally guaranteed liberties, etc. etc. Each solution gives those in power more power, more control and at the same time takes away another slice of our freedom in the process.

Where does it end? When we have lost all our rights, all our freedom, and all those little things our founding fathers thought shouldn’t be messed with which are contained within the Bill of Rights.

You can call me a kook, a conspiracy nut, or anything you want. When the time finally arrives when the jackbooted storm troopers come knocking on your door or you see the military marching through the streets of your cities and towns, then you will realize I was right and that you should have listened. By then it will be too late. I would rather be safe than sorry. Thomas Jefferson once said, “The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all.”

As Jefferson said, it is better to resist your government even if you are wrong, than not to do so at all. I would argue that it is better to resist your government before you no longer have the right to do so.

Since you have put up with my ramblings for this long, I would ask that you do one more thing, Google The United States Civil Disturbance Plan 55-2, or Operation Garden Plot and see what you come up with. Then again, why don’t I just save you some time? Annex A, Section B of Operation Garden Plot “defines tax protesters, militia groups, religious cults, and general anti-government dissenters as Disruptive Elements. This calls for the deadly force to be used against any extremist or dissident perpetrating any and all forms of civil disorder.”

You wanted to know where all this ends, well that is the end right there. When you lose the right to protest, to seek recourse against injustices perpetrated upon you by your government, you have become a slave to them.

Now that you know the ultimate goal of those in power you have one of two options. You can either get informed and join the ranks of those who are fighting to stop this madness. Or you can go back to your television sets and hide from the truth. Your choice, but go back to the beginning of this article and re-read the quote by Patrick Henry to know my choice.

I have lost my faith in the human race when only 4 per cent of them can understand Ron Paul is the only candidate that makes any sense. The only thing we can feel relieved about is for the first time in 8 years we will have a president that has a functioning brain, even though that brain is corrupted. If we had a senate who really cares about America they would have impeached Bush when they learned he got us into a war based on false information and insists on continueing that war despite it is destroying our army and economy. We can't even define what victory is but our idiot president talks of victory while our soldiers die and are maimed for no reason. I love your articles! Keep on sharing your knowledge and thoughts with us!
