.…all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. ~Declaration of Independence
The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution must be read together in order to understand the profound obligation and right of the American people to alter, abolish or institute a new Government when current government is not supportive of the people’s goals,
…laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
The Framework for Revolution
The Declaration is the enabling document that gave rise to the construction of the Constitution, through which we the people united as independent states to form a government and organize its powers in a way that seemed most likely to effect our safety and happiness. Thus the organization of three branches of government with checks and balances, and the enumeration of powers of each of the branches.
From the preamble to the Constitution (note capitalization):
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
The 4,400 words that comprise the six articles of the Constitution constructed a system of limited government and maximum state and personal power and responsibility. Activities of each branch were precisely enumerated yet assured remarkable flexibility. The Constitution provides the guidelines within which the government can operate.
Article V allowed a reasoned process to amend the Constitution, requiring a super majority of the States for its enactment into law. A government operates only with the consent of the governed: this was consistent in the Constitution.
Article VI requires adherence and binds all officers of the government:
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be ; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
Senators, Representatives, members of the state legislatures, executive and judicial officers of the national or state government were and are also bound by an oath of affirmation to the Constitution.
Our revolution against the tyranny of the British Crown resulted in the formation of a limited government to be forever controlled by the people. We specified powers and spelled out consequences for abusing or disobeying orders from the people. We amended the Constitution with the Bill of Rights–our enforcement mechanism enumerated–, and subsequently to address issues unforeseen or not addressed.
And history repeats itself as we find ourselves in the same position as our forefathers.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it…
While the structure of the government we developed still meets our needs, those who inhabit the government have exceeded their authority and have, for 100 years, sought to change the institutions we are accustomed to.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes…But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

When you point your finger at anyone in blame, three fingers point back at you. And indeed we the people have much to account for in letting things get here. Yet, in anguish, I look at my 95 year-old mother, or think of my father and grandparents long gone, asking ‘why didn’t you do something’ and then realizing she was raising and providing for me, and they were providing for her, in an environment she thought was secure in our home, but also in our nation.
Did they really trade liberty for security, or know they were doing so? Or were the citizens of the 20th century traumatized by manufactured and real crises of war, depression, and attacks on our territory? And if that is the case, the development of Tavistock profiling, the Cloward-Piven strategy and Alinsky techniques, combined with infiltration of the communist perspective into all our institutions, has created an army of zombies disconnected with any reality or history, or practical sense of future. They are empty vessels waiting to be filled manipulated.
The status of our population today is very much a product of what I am beginning to believe was an assault on America in the 20th Century, and a studied assault. What techniques worked best to traumatize populations and to make them vulnerable to brainwashing? It is too perfect not to think that Obama was placed into office as the “final” product of such 20th century ‘experimentation’.
The Time is NOW
We all know we could add hundreds of more items to the list of infractions and detail every unconstitutional act. We have peaceful avenues of redress and we should be exercising all of them now on every subject. It is our duty as Americans to get involved here.
But it takes our opposition a shorter time to implement their actions than it does for us to repeal them. In the meantime, much damage has been and is continuing to our Constitutional Republic. How dare Obama skate into office and with the democrats, change the institutions we are accustomed to just because ‘he won’?!
By his audacity he is daring us to act, and of course to act in ways like he did (in his imagination) in the 60’s and 70’s…by blowing up stuff. He fully expects us not to sit in, block traffic, tie up phone lines, or use all other creative civic actions at our disposal.
It is fully time now to shut the rogue government down immediately. I’m calling for ideas…
