A Convention of States!

February 27, 2018

A Convention of States!

America has been in a Post-Constitutional period for a long time.

Increasingly, leftist/socialists/”progressives” have gained control of the federal government, the Supreme and lower courts, education,  and many more components of American society and culture.

These crooks and traitors have done this by confiscating the wealth of hard-working citizens and redistributing it to a rapidly increasing segment of America’s population who have become slaves to governmental largess. These are now “shackled voters”, who according to the Marxist plan, are increasingly helplessly dependent upon the housing, other material gifts and cold cash that their socialist masters dispence to them. America’s open borders, as well as open borders in Europe, are the leftist well-spring’s of new dedicated voters fueling numerous cultural dominoes falling for the well known pathologies of  socialism and Islamic Radicalism.

All of this is augmented by the many strident leftist initiatives and anti-American political action groups. These and other progressive lobbyists joined with traitorous near-life-time politicians to destroy America’s Constitutional government and confiscate freedoms from our citizens.

Together, they and the radical leftist/socialist democratic party (aided by a minority of liberal republicans)  have increasingly educated and propagandized our youth against America’s Constitutional laws, its Free Market economy, and Judeo/Christian Faiths and moral values.

The obscene, illegal and murderous social and political chaos now pandemic in America is the perfectly predictable outcome of all of this.

Modern America would be an unrecognizable horror to our Founding Fathers.

America’s Founding Fathers feared this would happen and, amazingly, they provided a Constitutional remedy to protect against just such a cultural death spiral.

It brings great sadness to think of all who have fought to preserve our freedoms; especially those who were maimed or killed in all of America’s wars starting with the Revolutionary War and to this very day.

We should also remember the wives, children and families who suffered the sickening loss their loved ones who fought to protect our way of life…now threatened as never before.

War Time U.S. Military Deaths

In his Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln most succinctly stated America’s hopes and dreams  for: A “government of the people, by the people, for the people” [that] “shall not perish from the earth.”

Tragically, thisgovernment of the people, by the people, for the people” IS now in the process of perishing from the earth!

We must now save America’s precious Representative Republic by using the gift of our little known 5th Constitutional Amendment; bequeathed to us by our amazingly prescient Founding Fathers. This must be done to preserve our remaining precious freedoms and to reverse increasing Federal governmental growth and dictatorial confiscations of state and citizens rights.

Please view the following and support its future initiatives.

“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.’ To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, not longer susceptible of any definition.” –Thomas Jefferson, Opinion on the Constitutionality of a National Bank, 1791

Alexander Hamilton on States Rights

The following is from Founder’s Quote Daily by

“But as the plan of the convention aims only at a partial union or consolidation, the State governments would clearly retain all the rights of sovereignty which they before had, and which were not, by that act, EXCLUSIVELY delegated to the United States.” –Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 32

States Rights vs. The Feds

The Federal Government has increasingly gained control over the states. centralized control of traditional states rights is an anathema to the freedoms envisioned by our Founding Fathers.

The following is presented from Founder’s Quote Daily:

“While the constitution continues to be read, and its principles known, the states, must, by every rational man, be considered as essential component parts of the union; and therefore the idea of sacrificing the former to the latter is totally inadmissible.” —Alexander Hamilton, speech to the New York Ratifying Convention, 1788

A Walk In The Woods, Dumb-Assed Moves–And Show Me Your Papers!

May 7, 2010

A Walk In The Woods, Dumb-Assed Moves–And Show Me Your Papers!

My dear friend, Frank, challenged several of my statements just as I was leaving for “A Walk In The Woods”. I promised that when I came back, I would respond to his remarks. So here are my thoughts.

Frank: Why is legalized Gambling a dumb-assed move, but legalized tequila not similarly dumb?

Me: Once the Pandora’s Box of addictive or highly pleasurable activities are legalized (now, or formerly outlawed as vices that damage the public and the republic) such as gambling, pornography, other recreational drugs, or prostitution they are very unlikely to be successfully prohibited again. Alcohol is a good example (prohibition and its repeal). I agree that alcohol addiction is ruinous to individuals and to our culture. That is no reason to add to it other similarly ruinous vices through legalization, taxation, and governmental encouragement of those vices. I believe the damaging effects of these vices on individuals and culture are synergistic…that is..1 dumb move, plus 1 dumb move, plus 1 dumb move will equal the total magnitude of bad dumb-assed moves and outcomes of maybe 5 or 7. These are self-destructive cultural design mistakes.

Frank: I don’t believe that the Federal Government has done anything about toys in Happy Meals, you might be thinking about Santa Clara county in California.

Me: I am sorry, you are right. My mistake. This was not a Federal initiative, as I thought it was. However, governmental regulation of business to this level of triviality is a sample of what is now growing in our socioculture and it is antithetical to individual freedom and liberty and tp success in the business sector. Do you find it appropriate that the government (at any level) would legalize and therefore encourage the traditional vices discussed above but then outlaw a 5 cent toy in a Happy Meal? Should we move on to Cracker Jacks? What about trinkets in our cereal boxes? Perhaps you think that coupons in the Sunday newspaper should also go.

We could open a new governmental agency to monitor and to control these outrageous assaults on the health and welfare of our poor exploited citizens. That would be in keeping with the spirit of these times.

Frank: What is courageous about requiring everyone to carry their papers, and show them when asked? Isn’t that the kind of Big Government intrusion into our lives that you’re typically against? Will you be carrying your proof of citizenship with you in Michigan in case an officer suspects your right to be in the country? If you’re unwilling to do so…why is Arizona courageous?

Me: In my view it is courageous for a state to move against the will of the Federal Government, by enacting and enforcing just laws that mirror the Federal laws—that the Feds are refusing to enforce. To do so is to risk retribution from an expanding and increasingly draconian Central Government. In my view, it is a God-Given right of individuals and states to defend themselves from destruction. From what I can see, this is exactly what Arizona is doing. Moreover, the majority of US citizens support Arizona’s right to do so.

It is perfectly legal to stop, detain, question, and establish the identity of anyone in the US who is suspected of breaking the law. That is what is proposed to be done in Arizona, and soon other states,…and I know you know it.

If I were going into Canada my passport would have been demanded and I would have been happy to show it. Same if I were going into Mexico, which I did recently. The Mexicans not only checked my papers, they carried automatic weapons as they did. While in the U.P of Michigan I had to show my papers (identification to buy gas, food and other products with a credit card and to cash a check. I was not harmed or incensed by any of it. If I was pulled over for speeding I would expect and be happy to comply with the officers request (really a demand) for my papers (licence and car insurance). None of this is a big deal to me.

Under conditions of war and/or invasion, both of which I believe are ongoing, I am happy to show my papers upon demand at any time–and so should be any patriotic citizen.

Thanks Frank,
