"Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning..." --- Thomas Paine, Common Sense (1776)
Each time one of my columns appears on NewsWithViews.com or WorldNetDaily.com, my e-mail box instantly fills up with excuses. If I had a nickel for every excuse I have received over the past decade or so, I'd be a millionaire. It doesn't matter what the subject matter is, everyone has an excuse why "it" can't be done. This is one of the reasons I wrote my "Where have all the men gone" column several years ago - because I continue to see a whole lot of people with excuses about how this or that can't be done. Don't people realize that this defeatist attitude is exactly what the shadow government wants? They want to beat people down until they grow so weary, they simply give up and that's how slaves are made.
The most common question people ask is what can I do? Then, when I make recommendations and suggestions, the response, as I said, is more excuses. Why is this? I can tell you why:
First, the freedom movement has been doing the same thing for decades that doesn't work. How many times are you going to ask the same member of your state legislature or Congress to do something and they continue to ignore you, i.e. close the borders?
Second, no one wants to be the stuckee, they would rather I fight for their freedom and take the risks involved with standing up for everyone's rights.
Third, very few are willing to sacrifice their fun time or financial resources. It's easier to call talk radio and complain. It's easier to say you "can't fight city hall." It's easier to let Devvy stick her neck out. It's easier to write a check to the RNC or the DNC and let them pick the rotten, corrupt candidates to shove down everyone's throat for the next election. It's easier just to go into a voting booth every few years, punch a few holes in a card and go about your business, after all, you've done your civic duty and voted a straight party line. It matters not to most that the ballot box is completely compromised because of electronic machines.
Fourth, too many Americans are still stuck in the mode of blind loyalty to their political party and win at all costs. It's always the "other side" who is at fault when there isn't a dime's worth of difference between the two parties when you examine where they have taken America over the past fifty years.
So, the excuses just continue to come in and America continues to slide down the razor blade of tyranny. However, for those who are sincere about "giving it their all" to save this Republic, here are my heart felt suggestions:
Americans must be armed with the intellectual ammunition to fight. I don't mean the neutralizing drivel spewed by Shawn Hannity and other GOP cheerleaders, I mean getting a full and complete understanding of how the mind changers have subverted the way Americans think and how they are unwittingly accepting communism. This may sound like a strong indictment, but I believe once you do the hard homework as I have done over the past fourteen years, you will agree.
I can't strongly recommend enough that everyone read the works of Jeri Lynn Ball, probably the foremost expert on how Americans have turned from being a self-reliant, independent people to accepting the communitarian/alturistic mind set. Please start with these articles: The powerful secret weapon of global communist totalitarianism and Beguiling Americans Into Slavery and Self-destruction. At a minimum, read her four books, which are quick reads, thoroughly documented and researched. Read them as soon as you can. I know reading is time consuming, but essential in learning how we must fight back before the iron fist is brought down on this Republic.
Up in Fort Jones, California this past November, the people got active, they got very serious and booted out a district attorney, a sheriff and a bad judge. Americans in Josephine County, Oregon have been systematically cleaning out elected public servants and otherwise showing them for the weasels they are through coordinated, dedicated citizen activism. It can be done, it just takes numbers which means Americans giving up their play time and working together instead of against each other.
First and foremost is getting rid of electronic ballot machines in every county in this country. Unless this happens, we will continue to see crooks, cowards and outright traitors elected to public office at every level. You do this by showing up in numbers at every county board of supervisor meeting and demanding they tell the state legislature that their constituents demand paper ballots. You bombard your state capitol everyday with the demand that all electronic machines are dumped into the trash bin where they belong. Quit wasting hundreds of millions of dollars on machines that have no integrity. Just look at what has happened in the last two elections. I've been on this issue since 1993 and it gets worse every election. Enough is enough.
If this is your government, then you have to become part of it
As I asked in a recent column: Whose government is this anyway? It is ours. A government of the people, by the people, for the people. Unfortunately, over the decades career politicians backed by the two major party machines have taken over this Republic. It is no longer a government of, by and for the people, it has become a tyrannical government.
If we are to truly be a government of the people, by the people and for the people, then the people themselves must take it back and the only way to do that is for the millions of Americans who see this Republic and our Constitution hanging by a very slim thread, make the sacrifice to run for public office at all levels in every state of the Union. If you can't run, then please help constitutional candidates get elected by working for their campaigns.
In the aforementioned column, I also asked these questions: Who makes the laws in this country? City council, county board of supervisors, members of the fifty state legislatures and Congress. Local school boards and water districts make rules and regulations. Who enforces these laws, rules and regulations? The courts at all levels, district attorneys and sheriffs. All elected officials.
We can take back this country county by county by replacing bad sheriffs, county board of supervisors, judges at the county level, county recorder. At the city level it's city council seats, mayor. Miscellaneous but important elected offices: school board, water board and other municipal categories. All politics are local and most of America's ills can be cured at the local and state level. Not all, but most.
In November 2006, we will have elections for the entire House of Representatives, a third of the Senate, some governor ships and offices at all levels throughout the Union. In 2008, if we're lucky, there will be national elections which include the office of the president. We the people cannot wait until the last minute to find out which new world order facilitator will be our only choice. Haven't the people had enough of "hold your nose and vote?"
With the exception of Ron Paul and Tom Tancredo, the entire House of Representatives must be removed. No exceptions. This entire body has been in office for over a decade. They have done nothing to seal off the borders, but have passed unconstitutional legislation like the USA Patriot Act, national IDs and driver's licenses and the massive, colossal waste of money called Homeland Security. Collectively they have been busy destroying this Republic while bribing the American people with "free" prescription pills, and promises of even more money for the unconstitutional Federal Department of Education.
We the people cannot wait until six months before the election in 2008 to see which new world order facilitator the Democrat and Republican parties will once again force party faithful to vote for just to keep the other party from winning. Complaining about the serious problems plaguing America isn't going to solve them - only removing those who are responsible is going to save our Republic and our freedoms.
I wish to make a special appeal to the talented constitutional attorneys all over this country who work for public advocacy groups and foundations besides being in private practice. Please, our Republic needs you to make the sacrifice to run for Superior and District Court judges and district attorneys in every state. What good does it do to keep filing lawsuits and going up against the same judges who continue to slap the Constitution?
The same applies for those who qualify to run for county sheriff - the highest law enforcement officer in a county. A county sheriff can hold constitutional classes (I would highly recommend each sheriff take the course on the founding of America and constitutional government offered by the Institute on the Constitution) for deputies and the general public. My God, just think of how much could be accomplished and how many Americans a sheriff could reach in weekly Saturday classes!
We need to get all these bad judges off the bench. We can't do anything about the federal judges or the U.S. Supreme Court until all 100 U.S. Senators are replaced and strict constitutionalists are appointed by the state legislatures who have the guts to do what needs to be done. That will not happen until the fraud of the Seventeenth Amendment is exposed.
I'm also making a special appeal to our 33 million veterans and retired Americans: your country needs you with all your years of experience, courage and talent. There is no more time for fun and games. Get out of the casinos, park the Winnebago and put purpose back in your life! Your children and grand babies need you. America needs you. If the Senate ratifies the Free Trade Area of the Americas, Bush will sign it and America as a sovereign Republic will finally be gone. Even the AFL-CIO is fighting this mechanism for world government. The FTAA will be the final death blow and Bush is pushing hard for it. If you can't run for office, please help constitutional candidates in your area get elected.
Freedom is not a spectator sport or past time. I used to go fishing 50-75 times a year. In 2004 I didn't go once and in 2003, I went twice. I miss it, you can be sure of that. It is my passion and I love it, but freedom comes first, play second. With new world order facilitator, George Bush, Jr., back in office for four years pushing for the FTAA and fighting hard to give a free pass to 15 million plus illegal aliens, we are in great peril.
We are the people of this government and now the people must put their actions where their mouths are and begin the process of running for office. Freedom is not a spectator sport. Click here for guidelines on how to run for public office at all levels.
Let "Operation Clean Sweep" be our battle cry and begin today - because every day counts from now until the elections. All the money in the world will not protect you from the hell coming to America courtesy of the architects of a one world government. They are more powerful than individuals like Mel Gibson or Bill Gates and they crush those who get in the way without a second thought. Get involved and use the resources you're blessed with to help elect constitutionalists and not more party puppets. For those in a state of denial, God speed. It is regrettable that the truth is too painful for you to accept.
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams
