REAL CHANGE in GOVERNMENT

12 Jan

We are about to elect some new senators, congressmen, and a new president on a national level.  We are listening to rhetoric we usually listen to from new and same old candidates.  They all say change but they are not willing to commit to a plan of real change.

 

REAL CHANGE!  What would real change look like?  Well what is the criterion set out in the constitution?

 

  1. First the State gave up the right to rule independently to the federal government to insure safety for the citizens of the states in a unified manner by establishing a army for nation defense.
  2. The militia, which is now national guard, was kept under the command of the governors of the states.
  3. Next they wanted economic freedom from the large forces mainly from Europe.
  4. They wanted the land owners to control the country.

o   This was eventually repaired to appoint, but the wealth gained by exploiting the people has never been repaired or even addressed.

  1. Lastly freedom to worship the Christian God was set in place by stating the government could not tell you how to do it.  This evolved into separation of church and state, which is based on the afterthoughts of Jefferson and Madison after the left office.

 

Let’s address them one at a time.

 

  1. The safety of our citizens has never been a priority of our laws.

 

  1. There is more talk about the rights of the perpetrator than the rights of the victims.
  2. Now if the perpetrator can out run the law or victim they are free to go without being physically threatened by the public.
  3. If the perpetrator commits a crime against society by threats of violence the ACLU will defend him against an often struggling country or city court.  I am not against the ACLU but it seems to me their conceived responsibility is based on winning instead of justice.

iii.     A terrorist both domestic and international is protected with our laws which they are openly demonstrating by action or treat of action they oppose.

  1. Gangs and other crime oriented organizations can threaten the general public by intimidation techniques, and the police says until the action is done they cannot do anything.  The treat is as devastating to the victim as the action.  In my ‘What is Treason’ piece, I present a possible solution.

 

  1. When the government was formed the phrase ‘organized militia’ was used.  It was to protect us from our government.  Now the militia is our National Guard.

 

  1. The economic freedom became the people had and/or controlled the wealth of our nation used it to ensure they would always have control. With a very few exceptions the wealth is still class based.  The ratio is .01% of the nation holds the equivalent wealth of the rest of the nation.

 

 

  1. The .01% of the nation equals 31,800.  The population is 318,000,000 as of the end of 2014.

 

  1. The land owner idea fell away over time, but the wealth of the nation controls the policies.

 

  1. The south had plantation and used people by the use slavery or if factories they used underpaid workmen.  The north used underpaid factory workers as a rule.  In both societies the powerful paid a few people more to keep the less fortunate in check with ultimately created thugs and unions.

 

  1. Who had and has the freedom to do whatever they want?
  2. Who has the economic freedom?

iii.     Who controls the wars and military power?

  1. Who controls justice?
  2. Who controls our lives?

 

  1. It is true there have been court rulings that support separation of church and state, there has never been an amendment to the constitution that supports that statement.

 

  1. Outwardly the US government does support the Holy Bible.
  2. We have had Cristian Chaplin for congress.
  3. The Ten Commandments pasted all over the capital.

iii.     The design of DC is Christian based.

 

  1. Inwardly we say we support all religions, no matter what you want to worship.

 

  1. By law backed by the Supreme Court, if you worship anything or anybody the government will protect your right to do so unless you openly pay tribute to out Christian God, then you can’t do it.

 

How far is that from our constitutional principles?  Well, it’s not even close.  Our contestants to lead the government we are about to elect haven’t even address any of these items at the core.

 

Real change to me means to bring us back to the basic principles designed by the constitution considering the amendments of record, not the changes made by the Supreme Court.  In our constitution there is a method laid out to follow if we want to make changes.  To me that is the only way you can do it.

 

This is the reason people listen to Donald Trump.  In the absence of principles that control our lives being addressed by the candidates that should know better, people will listen to his statements that they know are a wrong approach because no one else is saying anything meaningful.

 

The leading democrats are talking in the right direction, but they are not there either.  What do we then do.  We bring this up in blanks of the republican and democratic conventions.  Let them debate that.

 

The is more important than Iran, Iraq, North Korea, or even Russian diplomacy.  If we don’t consider the health of our nation, we will never win anything.
