Our Founding Fathers took issue even with minor departures from constitutional precept. They believed that the power to infringe upon one provision of a constitution necessarily includes the power to infringe upon all provisions. They also believed that writing a constitution was serious business because it established government, an entity they feared and distrusted. However, more importantly, they understood that a constitutions prime purpose was to control and restrain government in the hope their fears would not materialize. However, they also recognized that, once created, government would tend to usurp power and with each usurpation, would grow more and more authoritative. Eventually, this state of affairs would lead to an erosion of individual rights and freedom. Understanding these truths, many great men throughout history have warned us about watching our Government so we would know when to stop obeying and start reaching for our guns.
My purpose for pointing out the above is not to encourage anyone to reach for a gun. In todays World, this would be suicidal and I place a high value on my life and the lives of others. Furthermore, I am a man of peace who firmly believes the proper way to solve problems is through communication, not rebellion or terrorism. However, my reason for mentioning these quotes is because those who lead us that they have gone so far astray from American ideals and governing principles, that I hope by being made aware of them, they wake up and realize the true nature of the terrible thing they are doing to us, to themselves, and most important, to our posterity.
When our Republic was young, beyond doubt, present developments would have Americans reaching for their guns. Thomas Jefferson advised that from time to time, we should toss out our sitting government and create a new one because the natural state of government was to move toward tyranny. He also believed that, overtime, established governments became out of date and antiquated. Times have changed. Much of what our forefathers believed no longer applies to the modern World. However, while this is true for some of their beliefs, it is not true for all of them. Unfortunately, today, our children and those who aspire to citizenship are not taught the eternally valid governing principles and values that served to make this Nation what it is today.
Our Constitution was written at a time when the industrial revolution was in its infancy and populations throughout the World were small. The most sophisticated weapons at the time were the musket and smoothbore cannon. Today, overpopulation has stressed the Worlds ecological systems to the breaking point, man has walked on the surface of the moon, and weapons exist that can destroy life as we know it on this planet. In light of this latter truth, it would be foolish to permit unrestricted ownership of military weapons. Therefore, we willingly submit to infringement upon our right to keep and bear arms even though such infringements are unequivocally prohibited by our Constitution. Similarly, there are many other provisions within our Constitution that no longer make sense and as a result are ignored by our Government. It does so because most Americans trust our Government and because no sane person would rush to arms because it did something that made sense, only because it violated an outdated constitutional precept?
As anticipated by the Framers, throughout history, our Government has ignored our Constitution and thereby assumed more and more power and authority. This practice has become so common that it is correct to say that, today, government officials ignore our Constitution completely, do whatever they think best, and only pay lip service to the Constitution because Joe Citizen thinks we still have one. Knowledgeable people have become so complacent to this state of affairs that if anyone stands up and accuses our Government of departing from constitutional precept, at best, they are thought of as being "out of touch" or, at worst, a rightwing extremist "nutjob" (I can personally attest to the truth of this). In the past, this has been all well and good, but unfortunately, we have now crossed a line that should never be crossed. The situation we presently find ourselves in is that it is considered un-American to challenge our Government and worse, our right to do so has wrongfully been denied by the Nations legal system. The end result of this sorry state of affairs is that our Government now violates our Constitution with impunity even when it doesnt make sense. In other words, today, the very worst fears of our Founding Fathers have been realized.
Is our state of affairs really so terrible? Despite the restrictions placed upon our freedom by this crowded hi-tech World, we still are the greatest Nation in history and enjoy more freedom than citizens of most other nations. Furthermore, our bellies are full and our material wealth is without parallel. In short, despite the tragedy of September 11th, we are, for the most part safe, secure, prosperous, and happy. Unfortunately, I personally do not feel this way. To be sure, I feel safe, secure, and prosperous, but I am not happy because throughout my twenty year career as a public servant I labored under the sting of institutionalized governmental tyranny and have been negatively affected by the experience. However, independent of my personal feelings, I believe our government has acted such that in the not too distant future, while we still may be safe and secure, most of us will not be prosperous, not be happy, and not be able to do anything about it. I also strongly believe that the wrongful path chosen by our leaders is not inevitable and can be changed if we, as a people, wake up and recognize the terrible truth about what they are doing to us.
What or who is the New World Order (NWO)? The NWO is not a pipe dream and though this may come as a surprise to many of us, with establishment of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the NWO has formerly become a World Government. I am sure the members of the NWO know who they are, but the problem is that they have not told us who they are and more importantly, they have not told us what they stand for, what they believe, and where they intend to lead us. I for one, have a problem with this.
First of all, if I am going to ride their ship of state, I want to know who is at the Helm and more important, who is on the Bridge. I also want to know where their ship is going and the reasons for going there. As already stated, those who rule us have told us none of these things, but unfortunately, our situation is far worse than this. If I am going to ride on a ship and disagree with where we are going, I want to be able to talk to the other passengers to see if they agree with me. Furthermore, if most of them do, I want to be able to tell the Captain to change course. Doesnt this make sense? Isnt this what the American experience in government is all about? Isnt this what all human being should expect of government irrespective of whether they are American or not? My fellow citizens of this planet, I respectfully submit that the New World Order will deny and has denied us these fundamental God-given human rights .and they justify this deplorable state of affairs by telling us how good we have it and how good they are going to make things for us.
Who is the New World Order? They are a group of people who meet in secret behind closed doors and decide where we are going and what is best for you, me, and the rest of the World. I cannot tell you exactly who they are, but with a little bit of common sense we can discern a lot about them. First and foremost, they are not a democratic organization and do not subscribe to democratic principles. If they did, they would tell us who they are, permit us to attend their meetings, tell us what they have decided, tell us why they have decided it, and would change direction if most of us disagreed with their decisions. No, the New World Order and the groupies that follow them have no use for democracy. They decide and we follow no matter how much we dislike it, no matter how many of us disagree with them, and no matter what the consequence of their decisions.
Does the New World Order respect human rights? According to Bill Clinton, our NWO spokesperson in residence, the NWO cannot be fixated on preserving the rights of ordinary Americans and if the personal freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution inhibit its ability to govern us, the NWO should look to limit those rights and guarantees. No, the NWO has no respect for human rights and thinks their right to govern us supercedes all human rights including those given to us by our Creator; life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and the right to participate in government through petition for the redress of grievances.
Does the New World Order believe in Freedom? Yes it does, but only for its members. They are free to do to us whatever they please. Unfortunately, they also believe in centralized control of everything as evidenced by the World Trade Organization; an organization allegedly constituted to ensure and enforce fair trade. While "fair trade" seems to be a commendable goal, it should be understood that "fair" is a matter of opinion and only the opinion of the WTOs ruling panels count in this regard. Furthermore, fair trade is really a euphemism for managed trade and left unexplained is what is "fair" about managed trade? Free trade, surely is a casualty of managed trade. I for one, subscribe to free trade. If I have something you want and you have something I want, isnt it better if you and I trade willingly instead of having a third party intervene and tell us how we should conduct our business? Isnt the right to trade freely, without interference, the fairest way of doing things? Perhaps Bill Clinton can tell us where I have gone wrong in this line of reasoning?
Does the NWO subscribe to gun control? Absolutely not! According to Janet Reno, Bill Clintons Attorney General, gun control is not enough, "the prohibition of private firearms is the goal".
Because the New World Order wants to confiscate our guns some people would call them "Neo-Totalitarians". However, we know a lot more about them than their stand on the private ownership of guns. The obvious and/or stated credo of the New World Order is as follows:
· Inalienable rights do not exist. The only rights
people have are those we allow them to have.
Based on the above credo, the label "Neo-Totalitarian" certainly fits quite well. However, I believe if something looks like a duck, acts like a duck, and sounds like a duck, then it is a duck. Therefore, in my opinion, the best way to describe the New World Order is that they are "Neo-Communists". Benchmarks of Communism are a centralized/planned economy with individual rights subordinated to the common good. Granted, Bill Clinton has not said that ownership of everything should be common to all, primarily because he is intelligent enough not to? Irregardless, the World Trade Organization is constituted to decide how we will trade, but unknown to most, it is also constituted to decide who will trade with whom and what will be traded. However, even if this were not true, given their obvious lust for power and the dismal track record of our own government in regard to usurping authority, isnt it foolish to believe our new World Government will refrain from assuming these powers? Is there any mechanism in place to stop them from assuming these powers?
How do we save ourselves from this tyranny? First and foremost, NAFTA and GATT must be repealed. These unconstitutional Congressional acts have changed the nature and form of our Government such that the United States of America no longer exists as a separate and independent Nation. Instead we have become a World Nation, without borders, where all people are Americans and all Americans are just like everyone else. What is so bad about this? Nothing, if others subscribed to the values and principles that have made us what we are today; the most successful nation in the history of the World. Unfortunately, while we are the envy of the World, most people have absolutely no idea how and why we became so strong and prosperous. It should be clear that our new Masters have no intention of enlightening them and instead have decreed that we will now be like the majority of the Worlds people. Why? For the simple reason that the converse is a threat to their authority and control.
In conclusion, in addition to the repeal of NAFTA and GATT, what this Nation needs most at this point in our history, is an updated and revised Constitution resulting in the reestablishment of the Republic that made us what we are today. This new Constitution should specifically spell out and protect the God given individual rights of humankind, recognize the realities that presently exist within the World, and include provision for anyone to challenge, without reservation, the actions of government under the Constitution whenever they think appropriate. IMPOSSIBLE, you say! Then I say, let us join together and do the impossible because our only alternative is subjugation and bondage.
