First let me apologize to my fellow Americans for my absence. In my defense I had high hopes that the erosion of freedom in this great nation would eventually bring about a revolution, and I am afraid I do not mean a revolution in thought.
I had hopes that my fellow citizens in the several States would have already taken care to neutralize the power of the federal government as we had planned and provided for in the Constitution. This, unfortunately, has not occurred. Thus my return.
Let me explain as simply as I can the situation we now find ourselves in: When we drew up the Constitution, we gave the several States most of the power. It was the States that created the federal government and the judiciary not the other way around. The federal government works for the several States.
We made very plain in the Constitution what the federal government’s duties and responsibilities were. The enumerated powers. The rest of the power rested in the States, or the people themselves.
The federal government has few enumerated powers and is, or was, strictly confined as was the judiciary. (Take a look at Article 1, Section 8) I can tell you for a fact that the founding fathers would not recognize the government they created in its present form. I can also tell you that they would already be shooting.
The great abuses visited on the several states at the start of the revolution, pale in comparison to the abuses placed on us by the present bastardized form of our government. Read the Declaration of Independence and you will see that you are far more abused than we were.
We did not put up with it but you have which I find profoundly disturbing. I can only assume that you have had your freedoms reduced or taken by such small amounts that you were not driven to giving the government a firm rebuke.
Seeing this government from my perspective and seeing it today is a shock of such profound proportions as to stagger ones imagination. We did not create our Republic to morph into what it is today.
The federal government has no authority under the Constitution to write laws applicable to the people of the states, and has no authority to own public lands within any State except under very strict limits. The judiciary has no authority to determine the Constitutionality of a law: That right is reserved to the States or to the people.
I blame much of this on the current day news reporting. We had hoped the press would be another check on government. I must admit we did not foresee that the press would actually transform itself into a partisan, almost treasonous form. However you are indeed blessed by Providence that you now have a resource to get the news out that we did not—this internet.
So. I will be using this new form of communication to lend my assistance where I find it is needed most.
In the meantime, many of you are asking, “what can we do?” We wrote the answer to that question in the Declaration of Independence. You just seem afraid to say it out loud and your fear shows me how far you have sunk into the despair of tyranny.
You should never be afraid of your government.
If you value your freedom, prepare for an uprising. If you do not love freedom, then go from us in peace. We need you not.
