Death By A Thousand Cuts

Death By A Thousand Cuts

We start with a First Principle:

Those things allegedly most treasured by our nation including
Liberty, justice, wealth, safety and social order arise not by
chance or force, but through the institutions of Law and limited
government, offered, embraced and manifest by moral, learned
and spiritual minds via the collective political instruments now
known as our state and federal Constitutions.

It follows naturally that the gross separation or alienation of government officials from our Constitutions must, by definition result in the death of the nation itself.

Each violation heaps an additional, devastating impact on America’s economy, families, moral character, global reputation and the Freedoms of its citizens.

To be sure, if we permit it to happen, the material cause of the demise of Liberty and our Republic will be the cumulative damage and decay resulting from the relentless and escalating number of violations that continue to debase both our state and federal Constitutions.

After all, the Constitutions, as rule books designed to govern the government, are all that stand between the People and total tyranny.

Yes, through it all and despite the damage, our democracy will survive; we will go on electing people to office, as this function is necessary in establishing any form of representative government.

What will not survive, however, is the Republic of America -- designed by the greatest governing documents ever given to mankind.

Simply put, absent a sea change in the People’s attitude
and commitment toward their Constitutions, our Republic’s
approaching demise is all but a certainty.

Unless a sufficient number of People decide to soon embrace
our Constitutions, and learn to “connect the dots” between
the specific provisions and prohibitions of Law provided
therein and the malevolent, unlawful behaviors of our elected
officials, we are a doomed nation, subject only to the Rule of
Men and the tyranny of Power.

Unless the American People soon rekindle and accept personal
responsibility to hold all elected officials accountable to those
written documents, regardless of their political stripes and
whether they voted for them, America’s fate as a Sovereign,
lawless ship, captained only by pirates and despots is sealed.

Without a collective constitutional conscience of the People, for the errant impulses of our elected officials to contend with, the (now) unbridled violations of Law will most assuredly drain the remaining life blood from the Republic.

As Jefferson said, political parties are by their nature corruptive.

Without a national constitutional conscience, the loyalties of
our elected officials will naturally continue to flow away from
the Constitution to the Party responsible for designating them
for the ballot and its self-serving platforms and objectives.

As Jefferson also said, the People are the only sure reliance for
the preservation of our Liberty.

Without a national constitutional conscience, the collective belief
of the People will continue to be the naive cry of all democracies,
i.e., “If you don’t like what is going on, vote for someone else”.

In truth, elections are the crudest form of organized political
exercise possible by a “free” People and are the instrument
of participation employed by all pure democracies.

Elections, in essence, are the tool of those that control the
political process, the levers of government and the status quo.

Elections, if relied upon as the sole method of exercising the
powers of Popular Sovereignty, serve only the will of the majority
and the chosen recipients of government beneficence.

Despite the necessity of electing those who wield governmental
power, it is the malicious use of elections by which pure
democracies sustain the illusion of Liberty, while Individual
Rights, i.e., those superior, unalienable Rights and political
protections which define the heart of a true Republic, wither
and dissolve.

Again, our Constitutions are our Law. They are all that stand
between the People and total tyranny.

The Constitution is not a menu and cannot defend itself.

That’s up to us, the People.
