It starts with you...
Would you be a peer or a helot?
This from NewsWithViews.com, where Chuck Baldwin chimes in about being lumped in with terrorists and, even worse...militia members (!), by the Missouri Information Analysis Center.
Chuck put it succinctly in a couple of places:
"In the first place, Washington, D.C., is a lost cause. It really is. We have about as much chance of flying to the moon in a glider as we do of seeing any significant change in Washington, D.C. Neither the Republican nor Democrat parties at the national level offer any hope. The federal government is hell-bent on turning the United States into a socialistic global village, and the two major parties are in it up to their necks."
Well said, Chuck!
And later he adds:
"Folks, Washington, D.C., is a pigsty. There is no remedy for that place. It doesn't matter to a tinker's dam whether a Republican or Democrat is in the White House, or even which party controls Congress. If the last two Presidential administrations have not taught us that, we are brain-dead."
He closes with:
"If there is any hope for lovers of freedom in this country, it will be found in individual States that are willing to shake off the filthy dust that has floated down from that putrid landfill on the banks of the Potomac, and stand up for freedom and independence the way Americans used to. And if the State we live in won't do it, we might want to consider moving to one that will, because if we lose our liberties, it will be our own individual State that will have run up the white flag."
I have been saying this for some time. People, you need to get it through your Public School educated heads, the States are NOT political subdivisions of the federal government. The federal government is a creation of the people of the States. It is a corporate entity which has certain delegated authority. Which authority may be withdrawn at any time by the people of those same States.
If the remedy cannot be found in congress assembled, it can be administered through a constitutional convention, which can be called by three fourths of the state legislatures. Those same legislatures can send any set of delegates they desire to the convention. While the convention is meeting, the U.S. Congress can still sit and conduct its business. The result of the convention would be binding only on those states that ratify it, presuming three fourths concur. If a new Union is the result, the remnant United States can continue their business under the former Constitution, or follow whatever path they choose. This is THE legal and lawful means of extricating the country from the tar-pit of totalitarian socialism in which we are now mired. Mired but not sunk. We are well on our way, but not yet delivered. Folks it starts with you.
But...but, butbutbut......What about my social security...and my momma's medicare....and next weeks food stamps...and...and...and
Are you a free man or a serf ? Would you be a Spartan and a Peer, or a helot?
It starts with you.
