The Call to Thought

Guest Author: He’s Not My President, aka
CuriOusOnefromthe60s or AZ Conservative

(I am pleased to present this extremely fine piece  which was featured on Constitutional Radio on July 4th, 2009. As we seek solutions to this Constitutional Crisis, it is worth remembering the tools we already have as Americans.  Our passion for Country gives us the tools for a thoughtful, reasoned approach to restoring our Constitutional Republic with the courage of our convictions.  I hope you enjoy this  enlightening and empowering essay! )


There is a revolution brewing in this country, but it is not a call to arms, it is a call to thought.  There will be no bloodshed, there will be no violence and there will be no secession.   There will simply be a return to the promise of this country and the beauty of its simplistic yet profound message: that all men are created equal and that all men have unalienable rights that include the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness ensured through adherence to a system of government known as a Constitutional Republic that is for and by the people.  Oh how those of you in the government have strayed, but how easy it will be for the American People to return to that promise and guarantee because we will heed the call to thought.

It began with the Tax Day Tea Parties and continues today at the Town Hall Meetings.  It is a call to all Americans of all walks of life, of all political persuasions regardless of party or ideology.  As Americans, we know a few basic truths:  the American system of government has allowed us to produce liberty over tyranny, has allowed us to freely debate our differences, has allowed us to produce a more just and more civil society and has allowed our citizenry to prosper.  Does the government which includes the Federal and State governments as well as the local Municipalities really believe that a free people are going to willingly give up their freedoms and rights to prosperity?  The masses will rise up in peaceful protest to such acts and will return this country to its founding principles because we will heed the call to thought.

While those in power continue to divide us along party lines and ideology, pit us against one another through class warfare and racial divides, there are truths that stir within us.  All honest Americans strive for the same promise that the people’s law, a system of government by and for the people, binds us all inextricably against the power mongers and soft tyrannists among you.  You can cheat on your wives.  You can get yourself a sweetheart deal from a mortgage lender.  You can sell your stocks for profit when you are made aware of a looming economic crisis.  You can pass legislation in the dead of night further indebting this nation.  You can force a green economy on an economy that is on life support and hide the taxation in the veil of energy regulation or how the American People like to refer to it as CAP and TAX.  You can force national health care on us when you know that there is no health care crisis in this nation other than the government’s self created health care liabilities through Medicare and Medicaid and the litigious trial lawyers.  But what you may have forgotten, or what you may hope that we forget, is that we know who you are.  You have not gone unnoticed, and you will not steal from us, nor pardon the expression financially rape this nation’s citizenry.  We are the American People and we will not allow you to destroy our liberties through tyranny.

The people of this country have common yet simple wants and desires.  We want to be able to pursue our lives independent of government interference.  We wish to help our neighbors through troubled times rather than depend on a government to do it for us.  We desire a better life for our children then we have had, or for some, to ensure our children enjoy the same prosperity we have enjoyed.  We will not be bullied into submission by a government that does not keep its promises to its citizenry.  We will not allow our government to indebt our children with the unnecessary expenditures that you have forced upon them.  We will not allow you to indebt this nation with unnecessary programs veiled in false crises.  We will work together to ensure the promise of our founding fathers.  We will insist that you actually represent us because we believe in the principles of, fundamental truths and laws of this nation even though you have forgotten them or worse purposefully subverted and corrupted them for your own personal gain.

It is you whom are gravely mistaken if you think the people of this nation do not stand together.  It is you whom seek to divide us while we seek to unite under our common rights and freedoms.  I will stand with my gay sister, he will stand with his black brother, she will stand with her Asian friend, and we will all stand together against you, the government.  You have lost your way, you have made promises you had no right to make, you have made promises you could not fulfill, you have made promises you never intended to keep, and we will hold you accountable.  Our founding fathers not only envisioned the three branches of the federal government providing the checks and balances against tyrannical rule, but they also envisioned the wings of the American Eagle keeping it in straightforward flight by never succumbing to extremism on either wing of the ideological political spectrum.  We understand this, and we have seen the flight of the eagle aloft in a drunken stupor flying erratically above us, but no more.  We will put aside our contentions; we will stop our fight against one another’s ideologies in order to rescue our nation from the edge of insanity manifested in soft tyranny for which you are responsible.

We are no longer Democrats, Republicans, or Libertarians.  We are simply the American people, the voting bloc of this great nation, and we have had enough.  We may not always agree on our politics, but most of us agree that you no longer represent us, and more importantly that you no longer represent the ideals, promises and guarantees in the founding of this country.  We will heed the call to thought, and you will find yourselves on the wrong side of history.  Your only historical reference will be that you began the great awakening of the masses whom have returned to critical thought and whom will ensure that we return our Constitutional Republic to its rightful owners, the American People.  Your legacy is tragic, but our awakening will be our great calling.  If you continue on the path you are following, you will discover that we have not forgotten your deeds, and we will provide you with a resounding answer in 2010.  Let all who agree join the American People in our call to thought returning us to our responsibilities which will return us to the promise of our nation and the lives, the liberties and the happiness we have the blessing and the right to enjoy.

    Thank you drkate, another excellent article

    Democrats, Republicans, or Libertarians; Entitlements $1.5 Trillion- Fraud in entitlents $500 Billion – FIX FRAUD FIRST

  2. 2 SeniorBuzz September 2, 2009 at 8:24 am

    “You can force national health care on us when you know that there is no health care crisis in this nation other than the government’s self created health care liabilities through Medicare and Medicaid and the litigious trial lawyers.”

    The cost of malpractice insurance is 8% of our healthcare insurance cost.

    The Medicare and Medicaid billing hassle contributes another 8% to the cost of our healthcare.


    Federal Budget $3 Trillion Dollars-Entitlements $1.5 Trillion- Fraud in entitlents $500 Billion Dollars- FIX FRAUD FIRST

    Fixing the fraud will strike at the heart of Obama transferring wealth through the use of entitlement money. It will expose the enormous amount of money being spread without any accounting as to where the money went.

    Beginning with Medicaid, where the fraud is astronomical, every person must be verified as an American, and be identifiable biometrically.

  3. 3 SeniorBuzz September 2, 2009 at 8:58 am

    Fixing the Fraud, contrary to coomon opinion, must begin at the very bottom, with each, and every American.

    By keeping an eye on our money

    In the process of fixing the fraud, the economy will begin to respond, Medicaid, Medicare, costs, will drop precipitously, many fewer government workers will be required, the budget will become balanced, we will begin paying down the debt, and taxes will be reduced.

    Fixing fraud is fixing all fraud, including the underground economy. If we are to be Americans, we must all honestly share in the cost of making our United States, a atandard for the world to follow. We can’t overlook the underground economy, which supports most of the 30-40 million illegals in our country. It shouldn’t be allowed to exist, but it will take all of America to make that decision, and abide by it. PS, a well-designed database will expose those involved; they will be forewarned.

      This is what the Obama mentality is all about, causing crisis situations where there are none. Case in point: Swine flu. Where is there a swine flu epidemic? No where to be found. Yet Obama is manufacturing one, and spending more of our hard earned money to get a vaccine made up (who knows the long term effects of such a vaccine, which has never been properly tested) and trying to mandate people to inject themselves with this garbage. The sheep and blind who are leading the blind continue to fall for his mass hysteria methods. As we get closer to 2010 and mid-term elections, I fear Obama will manufacture more crisis situations as he tries to stop the house from losing many of its democratic congressional seats as the public gets more and more fed up with the Dem’s shinnanegans.

      • 5 drkate September 2, 2009 at 9:15 am

        Yep, the crisis guy who won’t let it go to waste. I think swine flu, climate change, the economy, healthcare, these are all scare tactics to bow us to fear.

        The mandatory injection is unconstitutional, a violation to privacy, as is healthcare. The idea is to keep us all juggling up in the air while he pulls the rug out from underneath us.

    Thank you, AZConservative for a powerful and moving essay. While difficult for all of us, our movement is right, and it is strong. Thank you for letting me cross post this beautiful and timely essay.

  5. 8 Miri September 2, 2009 at 9:59 am

    Thank you for sharing that inspiring essay, drkate. Much to think about therein.

    Laura Ingraham reports on her radio show that on Sept. 8th, Obama is going to address all school children. They want schools to show the address to all students, then ask them to write letters to themselves to explain what the POTUS is telling them and what THEY will do to HELP the POTUS! Teachers are supposed to collect and save these essays and then later on evaluate whether or not the students followed through on their plans to help the imPOTUS. Can you believe this?

    Public indoctrination of all school children courtesy of the federal government, which plans to interfere in local control of schools.

    Here’s my suggestion: Channel your anger at this outrage into action. If you have children in school, contact the school and tell them in no uncertain terms that your child is NOT to be forced to watch this Obama-nosis.

    If they will not excuse your child from this “address”, then pull them out of school that day.

    Nothing gets the attention of school administrators more than absent students. Schools get money from states and the feds, in many cases, based upon the number of butts in the seats on any particular day.

    If many parents threaten to keep their kids away from Obama-nosis on Tues. Sept. 8th, then maybe they will think twice about this showing this Marxist, Communist, totalitarian outrage disguised as an address from the imPOTUS.

      My son starts school on Tuesday; I start on Wednesday (thank goodness). To prepare for this ‘learning/teaching moment,’ I have armed him with the facts about BO. (You know that video with all the starts making statements that begin with, “I promise…” They talk about how they will volunteer to help their fellow citizens, or conserve energy…. I taught my son that as a percentage of total income, the Obama’s contributed about 1% to charity; the Clintons, about 25%; and that instead of turning down the thermostat in the WH and wearing a sweater, BO turned up the heat and walked around in shirt sleeves.) Being one of the few black students in a sea of liberal white – where we live, it is preferable to be a racist than to be perceived as one – he deserved his voice to be heard, too. (I am white; most of my students are black. I have been swimming against the tide for more than a year now.)

      • 10 Miri September 4, 2009 at 7:33 pm

        jbjd: Good luck with swimming against the tide. After this past year, we can all relate to how you must feel.

        This issue got me curious about the Dept. of Education. The lesson plan for this speech was designed by “Teaching Ambassador Fellows”, whatever the heck they are. Anyway, in researching who they are, I came across this:

        “President Obama has set a goal that every child in America be provided a complete and competitive education, from cradle to career. In 2009-2010, the Teaching Ambassador Fellowship will focus on the four key areas of reform serving as a foundation for the implementation of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act initiatives and the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in order to meet this goal:

        Creating data systems that follow the progress of students from pre-K through college and which link student results back to teachers and in turn colleges of education;

        Adopting internationally-benchmarked standards and higher quality assessments that measure whether students are mastering complex materials and can apply their knowledge in ways that are ready for college and careers;

        Committing the required attention, resources and ingenuity to turning around our lowest performing schools; and

        Investing in the quality of the education workforce – teachers, principals and education support professionals – and rethinking how these educators are prepared, assigned and rewarded.”

        Putting aside that this sounds as if there’s no such thing as local control of schools, including curricula, and that instead Obama is charged with running all schools across the country, what do you think about that paragraph mentioning “data systems”?

        Does this mean that not only do they want a huge database in DC to track our healthcare, but they also want another database so that they can academically track each and every child in America?

        Would you believe that a prominent, black preacher/community activist/perpetual citizen board member where I live stated that it’s disrepectful for anyone to say that their child shouldn’t be made to watch Obama’s speech.

        He actually said that the president has a “right” to address “HIS children,” and that the children are Obama’s “constituents.”

        This is their mindset and they seem to perceive nothing wrong with it. I wonder if this preacher considered all of America’s children President Bush’s “children,” too.

    The indoctrination of our children, which I suspect will be the crux of Obama’s talk, is the height of audacity , of this administration

    This is so much a wonderful article….naive but my wishes exactly…..Hmmm where do we start in such a kind way?

    • 14 curi0us0nefromthe60s September 3, 2009 at 2:26 am

      Although I believe there are many things we will need to do before the 2010 elections, I think we all need to be very active in the 2010 primaries and ensure that we have candidates who truly understand this is a citizen government and a Constitutional Republic. We need good candidates from all parties so that we can have real choices in the 2010 election. I know I tend to live in this world of the ideal, but as long as I continue to believe it exists it still will at least for me. 😉

    Leo Donofrio has a new article on his blog establishing that Obama
    does indeed still hold citizenship of Britain and the European Union.

    As such he is not the President.

    But at least he will have somewhere to go and a new job he can do,
    I can report that the British PRESS are mad about him, so they’d
    help him run for President of Europe, whether the people of
    Britain would vote for him, well that’s another story.

    Here’s the link:

    I don’t agree with Leo’s conclusion (that Obama should renounce
    his dual allegiances) but if you read down into the first few
    comments, he clears up that such a renunciation would not
    change his nbc status.

    • 16 curi0us0nefromthe60s September 3, 2009 at 2:12 pm

      Leo is not definitively saying in that article that Obama presently holds dual citizenship. Leo states that we cannot know for sure because the information we need to determine this is not in the public domain. There is a big difference. It is very important that we convey what Leo is saying accurately.

    • 17 jbjd September 4, 2009 at 7:17 am

      …but if you read down into the first few
      comments, he clears up that such a renunciation would not
      change his nbc status.

      In general, I find that LD has no idea what he is talking about. But he says this ‘nothing’ with conviction; and he ridicules any opposing viewpoints, as if his premise is so patently clear as to obviate clarification. Remember that photograph of the JSCOTUS, over which he superimposed the word “WUSSY,” after they deigned to reject his case? How about these? Security agency heads who can legally withhold classified information from the POTUS; S’s o S whom the court can order to carry out ‘ministerial’ functions not written into law; and a Federal Declaratory Judgment Act that cannot be used as the cause of action in federal court because, well, the Constitution prohibits the federal court from issuing legal advice absent a case or controversy. The “Holy Grail” of law review articles which would define NBC once and for all, notwithstanding the absence of a federal appeals court ruling on point.

      Even assuming anything LD says has merit, how does engaging in this theoretical speculation as to whether BO is a NBC – and, without documentation, everything related to a determination as to WHETHER BO IS A NBC, is speculation – get you any closer to understanding the political/Constitutional system that enabled him to ‘win’ the election or, doing something about it?

    Going back to the speech that Obama will give to school students next week, attached is a response from one school district which is very interesting:
