The land, the trees, the water and the minerals all belong to the people. They don’t belong to the government. The government has stolen these things from the people and sold them to corporations. The courts and state legislators give corporations more rights than living, breathing human beings. The laws are written to protect the corporations.
The corporations need workers, so 350,000 people were brought to Alaska to work for the corporations. Anybody worth a damn already had a job in their home state, so Alaska wound up with a lot of chronically unemployed and unemployable people living on welfare. The corporations harvest the resources so they can make lots of money. When the resources are gone, they leave Alaska, and leave a big mess behind.
Some of them run for the legislature, enacting hundreds of laws each year similar to the laws they have in their home state. After 20 years of this, we have 10,000 more laws. Then they discover they don’t like it here anymore because there are so many laws. It’s worse than where they came from, so they go back to the hell hole they came out of. This is the mess we have now. The schools are concentration camps to teach children to bow to authority.
Will they shoot us?
This may not be a foolish question, considering what is and has happened in this supposed-to-be republic since Barack Obama took office. Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence 238 years ago, that to “secure certain unalienable rights” — among them, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness — “governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; (and) that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government.”
We, the “governed,” haven’t consented to any of the millions of rules, regulations, or executive orders that have been issued out of that den of iniquity called Washington D.C. — and its environs. We also fear the D.C. crowd, and can only imagine what they may have in store for us in the future. Now, a part of Maryland wants to secede, as does part of Colorado. And Texas is getting pretty serious about secession.
In nine months, we the people hope to correct the grievous faults of the democrats and Obama’s trampling of our sacred Constitution by voting the rascals out. We need to take control of the U.S. Senate and hold the House of Representatives. We are impatient for Obama’s second term to end. In the meantime, certain events are so unexplainable and intolerable, I wonder if, under bureaucratic instructions, U.S. troops would fire on their own brothers and fellow citizens?
Consider this: Certain unconstitutional bureaucracies, such as the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA, have bought, with funds unauthorized by Congress, millions — most likely hundreds of millions — of rounds of ammunition and firearms of various sizes. There have been no explanations of such acquisition, nor any possible use for such arms and ammunition, other than for use against American citizens. Many Americans are understandably fearful of President Obama declaring a unconstitutional “State of Emergency,” or declaring “Marshal Law.”
The president has publicly declared that he will have his way, even without the consent of Congress, by use of unconstitutional executive orders, which he has used hundreds of times already.
So-called “Obamacare” passed without a single vote from the republican party, and was signed into law. This, despite dire warnings of its overwhelmingly horrid results, in the form of lost medical care and huge costs to the citizenry. Such warnings have come completely true. President Obama, in a futile effort to gloss over the law’s obvious glaring catastrophic faults, has illegally and unconstitutionally legislated and changed statutory law by use of executive order.
Such actions have finally become so outrageous, a few republicans of the “Tea Party” variety, are going to take the matter to court. It’s about time.
My worry about troops firing on their fellow citizens on instructions of a power-mad bureaucracy or presidential order is not unfounded. Abraham Lincoln began the war between the states by allowing a fort on a South Carolina island be re-supplied, after a strong, unmistakable warning.
Lincoln had been warned repeatedly by his top military commander, General Winfield Scott, and most of his cabinet, to abandon Fort Sumter. One of many quotes of Lincoln might well dissolve the notion of getting rid of slavery as an excuse for that terrible war.
“I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in states where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.”
Some 610,000 Americans died in that tragic war, fought over states’ rights, as enumerated in the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution. Slavery had nothing to do with it, as modern-day apologists mouth. Lincoln’s invasion of the South was supposed to “save the union,” but the “union” broke apart the day Lincoln was elected as the first republican president.
The South knew his goal was to destroy — once and for all — the doctrines of Federalism and states’ rights, that had, since the beginning, frustrated ambitious politicians like himself; politicians who wanted a highly centralized and greatly enlarged state, a la Alexander Hamilton, FDR, LBJ and now Obama. The president uses every power he can command to see to it that it happens. After the defeat of the South, Lincoln’s henchman, Sherman, in his march through the South, murdered, burned and destroyed everything in his notorious path, with no rhyme or reason. An American general killing fellow citizens, and the war was over.
It has happened throughout history. Stalin, Hitler, Chairman Mao and other human animals have ordered murder of their citizenry by gunshot, starvation, or imprisonment. America went to war foolishly, with no Constitutional declaration, at the behest of George Bush, LBJ and Harry Truman. Close to 150,000 American soldiers lost their lives due to those acts of irrational and inhuman overseas wars.
Will executions of American citizens be ordered at a command of a president or bureaucrat for nonexistent, fallacious reasons? Will politicians follow absurd, murderous “false-flag” situations, propagated by foolish officials or a president who has no legitimate credentials to even be a holder of that office?
Will the American military or National Guard be ordered to shoot their fellow citizens for some imagined wrongdoing?
It really scares me. I am convinced that the quarter -billion firearms held by American citizens scare those who would gain total control of our lives, businesses, jobs and private property. Our quarter-billion guns protect us from criminals, murderers, robbers and — if necessary — oppressive government. Thanks to the Second Amendment, Americans are armed. The Brits and Aussies have had their guns confiscated, and crime has tripled in some cases. The first thing Hitler did upon coming to power was to confiscate all guns, “for safety’s sake.”
We were in England a couple years ago, and I took out my Swiss pocket knife to clean my nails or something. The bus driver almost fainted when he saw it. He said I could go to jail for a year if police saw me with it. That’s how far toward totalitarianism these supposedly free nations have come. America is still the best place to be.
