Do Americans Worship a False Security over Liberty?

Daily we are bombarded with the craziness going on in our Country.
Bailouts, Stimulus, Cap and Trade, Health Care, Treaties, Anti-Family Farm Bills, Federal Waterway Acts, War, Executive Powers, Patriot Act, etc., etc., etc.

For all of the screaming about what is constitutional and what is not, I have my doubts that many have read the Constitution, or if they have, care only about the parts of the document they agree with and discard the parts of which they disagree.  What is becoming clear to me is most people care more about their security than they do liberty.  I am glad people are waking up, but having attended many meetings, marches, reading a lot of emails, blogspots, and yes, a few popular books, I have to say the overriding consensus is that many still want their security.  Not so much the tea party people, many of them are ready and willing to lay it all on the line and flat out quit playing the Government games, but most of them are still tied to the two party system and the big R.

The problem with the security thing is that it is a false security because many people are thinking that in 2010 they will vote in a whole new cadre of the the R's and things will magically be better.   Have the Republicans been great bastions of freedom?  Give honest thought to that question before you answer.

The progressives have been working since our founding to have the America of their dreams.  They have been patiently infiltrating the Federal and State Governments with their education, nationalization plans, the dissolution of our manufacturing base, the refusal to secure our borders, unionization of the workplace and global agendas.  You know how often I rail against Federal Government involvement in education, the Military Industrial Complex, NAFTA, how I believe the Federal Income Tax was never properly ratified, and the popular election of Senators.

With the election of Barack Obama, who is nothing more than a figure head for the progressives, we can be assured that our Representation is nothing more than an illusion.  I have said it before and I'll say it again, soon even the Governors and elected officials of our States will become meaningless.  With the over reaching of the Presidential powers and the ability to appoint his own cabinet, yes, I know this has been going on and has been acceptable for the history of our nation, each President has used and expanded these powers and it has come to be the greatest tool available to this president and his progressive agenda.

Obama has filled his cabinet with tax evaders, marxists and progressives that will fundamentally change America.  Add an eight year war, financial meltdown and 50 years of Govt. school indoctrination and you get fundamental change.  People are saying even if Obama signs the Copenhagen treaty, two thirds of Congress have to approve the treaty for it to be a done deal.  Hello, the President can get around the Congress on this and any other issue with the Presidential powers act(s).  Congress has given away their duty to coin money and the financial system over to the Treasury and the IRS, Secretary of the Treasury and even HHS Secretary have more power than Congress, rendering them useless on monetary policy.  What good will it do us to vote in an entire new Congress when your money is in the hands of those who are free to do what they please?

As we were all side tracked by the couple that crashed the party at the White House did you know a convicted felon, Robert Creamer and his wife Rep. Jan Schakowsky D- ILL were invited guests at the party?    "Creamer also used to be the leader of an ACORN-tied left-wing group called Citizen Action Illinois. But, the FBI began investigating him for bank fraud and tax evasion and he stepped down.
In 2006, he was convicted and served a year and a half in federal prison and house arrest. While in prison, Creamer wrote a lengthy manual: "Listen to Your Mother: Stand Up Straight! How Progressives Can Win."
A convicted felon, who was invited to the White House for a state dinner — that alone is exceptionally rare. But even more interesting is that in his prison manual, Creamer laid out a "Progressive Agenda for Structural Change," which included a 10-point plan for foisting universal health care on the American people in 2009."

When these things all pass with or without the approval of Congress, and don't think it can't happen, what will we do?
 These are the planks of communism and the cornerstone of the progressive movement during the history of our Republic of America:

1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rent to public purpose.
The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868), and various zoning, school & property taxes. Also the Bureau of Land Management.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
Misapplication of the 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913, The Social Security Act of 1936.; Joint House Resolution 192 of 1933; and various State "income" taxes. We call it "paying your fair share".

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
We call it Federal & State estate Tax (1916); or reformed Probate Laws, and limited inheritance via arbitrary inheritance tax statutes.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
We call in government seizures, tax liens, Public "law" 99-570 (1986);
Executive order 11490, sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development; the imprisonment of "terrorists" and those who speak out or write against the "government" (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill); or the IRS confiscation of property without due process.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.
We call it the Federal Reserve which is a credit/debt system nationally organized by the Federal Reserve act of 1913. All local banks are members of the Fed system, and are regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the State.
We call it the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) mandated through the ICC act of 1887, the Commissions Act of 1934, The Interstate Commerce Commission established in 1938, The Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Communications Commission, and Executive orders 11490, 10999, as well as State mandated driver's licenses and Department of Transportation regulations.

7. Extention of factories and instruments of production owned by the State, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
We call it corporate capacity, The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture. As well as the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Evironmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.

8. Equal liablity of all to labor. Establishment of Industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
We call it the Social Security Administration and The Department of Labor. The National debt and inflation caused by the communal bank has caused the need for a two "income" family. Woman in the workplace since the 1920's, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Fedral Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.
We call it the Planning Reorganization act of 1949 , zoning (Title 17 1910-1990) and Super Corporate Farms, as well as Executive orders 11647, 11731 (ten regions) and Public "law" 89-136.

10. Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc.
People are being taxed to support what we call 'public' schools, which train the young to work for the communal debt system. We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based "Education" .

Are we the land of the free?  Will we be the home of the brave inside our own borders or will be keep seeking security over liberty? 

I ask you to read the Constitution again and see if we are a country that resembles our founding document or are we living under the marxist planks of communism.

How do they fit with your idea of liberty?  Do Americans worship a false security over Liberty? 

I hope not.

I for one would have liberty as outlined in our founding documents and Constitution.

I'm finding a bunch of hippies,not the spit on soldiers never take a bath kind--but the free-thinking live and let live kind interested in starting a commune,surviving off of mother earth and getting back to what's important in life.Is this struggle what God put us here for?I think not.I choose "Free to be you and me"... and all that jazz."F" the government and "F" politics. I'd rather save my soul. Keep up the good fight, Donna. You're always welcome in my camp.

  2. Marypratt,

    I too choose the free to be me and free to be you. When will others realize our founders felt the same way?
    We may be in the same "commune" soon and I think that may be exactly where we need to be.

  3. Thanks for those thoughts, Donna. Good article. I would remind everyone that the Constitution was not an attempt to limit the power of the government. It was an expansion of the power of the government. That was the whole purpose of the Constitutional Convention - to expand the powers of government because Alexander Hamilton and his disciples had convinced enough people that the government under the Articles of Confederation were inadequate to protect America from imminent danger by foreign powers. Basically, the Contsitution itself was an expansion of federal government power using the same tactics as all subsequent expansions of power - "Hurry up, pass this or we will all be destroyed!"

    We should view the Constitution in this light because that is exactly how it came about. Personally, I hold no special reverence for the Constitution other than that it did not go farther than it did in accumulating power in the central governmnet.

    The first 10 Amendments were a reaction AGAINST the Constitution - remember they came after the Constitution was written. They are an attempt by those who opposed the Constitution to limit its damage to liberty - and thank God they got those amendments passed.

    I guess I just wanted to point out that the Constitution should be viewed for what it was: an expansion of the powers of an already existing federal government using the same tactics that got the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, TARP, and all other invasions of liberty passed - invoking fear in the people to support an expansion of power by the government.

    Of our two founding documents, I prefer the Declaration of Independence: its purpose was to remove ALL power from the exising govenrment.

My favorite quote:

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!”~Samuel Adams
