From the beginning it was decided Americas government would be a representative one of, by, and for the people, and actions taken by that government was to be done by the consent of the people. So, how did the Democrat party come to the conclusion that it is they alone who should be the sole and exclusive representatives of the American people? Because they know better?
But, there was a snag. To keep that representative government on the rails, a Federal Constitution was developed after years of careful thought and deliberation prescribing the parameters within which limited representative government must operate. So, just when did it go off the rails? Why are “we the people” left suffering under the dictates of the proponents of a different political philosophy, one completely inimical to the consent of the people?
One thing our forefathers agreed on at least since Jefferson solved the problem of the Barbary Pirates, was the need to spend some funds for a strong defensive Navy to prevent other countries from encroaching on ours and interfering with the isolationism that then met the consent of the people. History and world events moved at faster speeds necessitating the need to look ahead to know what potential threats were forming across the pond. US Foreign policy adjusted accordingly but the Constitution hardly changed. It didn’t need to. Our Civil war settled one issue, America was no longer politically divided, slavery was officially ended although real healing took over another hundred years to flatten out the curve so to speak. But we still have our Constitution nearly unchanged and we must protect it.
Then came the era of increased foreign militarism with World War I, followed quickly by World War II and under the cover of the fog of war, the incursion of hostile foreign thoughts of Marx and Engles whose philosophies have ever since been eroding out our democratic process’s. The once accepted idea of thoughtful deliberation through agreement and compromise of our supposed elected politicians, began to fade away because the problems facing America were now being generated by those same politicians so they could, through the ruse and deception of fear, frighten enough Americans so they could keep their jobs to protect us. They really hate us!
Time has created a political class of career politicians who want to become the Nobles of that class, our betters as it were, whose experience expects they should be retained by the vote as our masters. But to stay there requires gobs of money and money buys influence and influence buys corruption, hence, the Industrial-military complex Eisenhower warned us of. Now it’s the technical, media-information complex that censures our thoughts, prescribe our needs and punishes our transgressions against the collective thought that has invaded our schools. We must have been simpletons to have allowed that to happen. Americans don’t need to be organized by political nutters, we just need to be left alone to organize ourselves.
Today, the Democrat Party, by whatever name you want to call it, Marxist, Communist, National Socialist, Social Democrats or Fascists, etc., have concluded that our Constitutional Representative government of, by and for the people, is a mishmash of argument and controversy that allows too much independence, too much freedom and too much self-reliance; that it doesn’t work and should therefor, be left in their capable hands. A new class of “do-gooders,” the “Expert” class appears to be overtaking them and soon, George Orwell’s 1984 prediction will be upon us, a la Chinese style! Why should that be? Because they know better and it belongs to them? Besides, sheep should not be allowed to control anything.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way, now, go get ’em! (12Feb21)
