High-Ranking Repubs & Dems: Keep Spitting on the Constitution
That way, soon it will be so soaked in sputum that you'll be able to tear it up and throw it away much more easily. You've all been spitting on it for so many decades that most of you have a fairly good aim by now, so perhaps before long it simply will dissolve of its own accord... you won't even have to tear it up. I can't find half of it already. I think some of you in DC are cheating: you're not just spitting on it, you're pissing on it as well. What gets me is that some people, perhaps most, don't seem to notice. Kudos to you high-ranking politicos on your excellent use of distracting Propaganda.
OPEN LETTER TO REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRAT POLITICAL OLIGARCHS
The Constitution is exceedingly CLEAR on the following points.
1. As enumerated in Article I, Section 8:
a. only CONGRESS is charged with regulating the value of our money (no other entity has been delegated that power by We the People...furthermore, no law, such as the 1913 Fed Reserve Act, over-rides the Supreme Law of the Land);
b. only CONGRESS is charged with the power to put this Nation at war (being Commander-in-Chief of the Military does not mean that the President gets to ignore Article I... furthermore, no law, such as the War Powers Act, over-rides the Supreme Law of the Land);
c. only CONGRESS is charged with the power to issue assassination orders, otherwise known as Letters of Marque and Reprisal (that power was not delegated to the Executive Branch by We the People);
d. only CONGRESS is charged with the power to "make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water" (that power was not delegated to the Executive Branch by We the People)...who made the Rules for Gitmo, CIA Black Sites, and "enhanced interrogation"?... not Congress;
e. the final clause of Article I, Section 8 does not mean that Congress gets to ignore the duties with which CONGRESS has been charged to perform. In other words, Congress may not delegate its powers to some other Branch of Government... or any other entity. Only We the People are allowed to delegate Constitutional Powers. We did not delegate power to Congress to turn over the duty of regulating the value of our money to an un-elected group known as the Fed Reserve Board of Governors. It's the duty of CONGRESS to regulate the value of our money... no one else may do it. [The former Chairman of the Fed, Alan Greenspan, once stated on the PBS News Hour, "No one has control [or perhaps he said "power", not "control"] over us."... the problem with that should be obvious.]
2. We the People are to be secure in our "persons, houses, papers, and EFFECTS" [emphasis added]. The so-called PATRIOT Act (like any other law) does not trump the Constitution. Neither does any part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)... or any other law. The Executive Branch acts as though those laws do trump the Constitution.
If you political Oligarchs don't like parts of the Supreme Law of the Land, you are charged by the People to try and change them. That can be done legally only two ways: by Amendment; or, by means of a Constitutional Convention. No other methods are permitted; plus, you are not legally permitted to ignore those parts and then contravene them. We did not delegate that power to you. Finally, I don't want to hear any whining about how difficult it is to change the Constitution. As you know, it purposely was constructed to be that way. Live with it, or get out of politics. As things are now, virtually all of you are violating your Oath of Office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. If you can't obey your Oath, then get the hell out. We don't want you.
Constraints of time and energy prohibit me from enumerating ALL of the ways in which you high-ranking Democrats AND Republicans have been spitting and pissing on the Constitution for decades. [I've been a keen observer of American politics since 1956; 1956---that's not a typo.] The few examples above should suffice to illustrate the point. It's no wonder to me that politicians at the highest levels (especially in DC) have become despised by the People. The effectiveness of the Distract-Divide-Conquer Propaganda constantly put out by the Oligarchy is beginning to fade. People finally are stirring... so far, just a bit... but stirring.
Not just my opinion. Be Well
