BUT WHERE DO “WE THE PEOPLE” STAND NOW?
by Neil Turner
Tribalism & Socialism: OBSOLETE
Caesars & Potentates: OBSOLETE
Dictators & Kings: OBSOLETE
Communism & Fascism (extreme LEFT): OBSOLETE
Democracy & Anarchy (extreme RIGHT): OBSOLETE
Totalitarianism & BIG Government: OBSOLETE
(The process of becoming no longer in use or of being useful:
OBSOLETE – replaced by a better idea)
This ‘new idea’, a Constitutional Republic, where the People had the final say – according to an agreed-upon (and sworn-to) set of rules and standards to guide them. A new and better idea that turned the old way of doing things UPSIDE-DOWN!
(A conspicuous object or emblem usually carried at the top of a pole
and used to mark a rallying point around an event or an idea)
The ‘Rules’ that all public servants and the military swear to (i.e. the Constitution: Declaration + 7 Articles and 27 Amendments) – those ‘Rules’ have not changed, but the ‘Standard’ by which we apply them apparently has – thereby rendering those ‘Rules’ almost OBSOLETE, as we reintroduce destructive democracy (which always descends into anarchy), – and BIG Government.
Recently, Glenn Beck called for a re-establishment of the STANDARDS by which the RULES are applied. So I have herein provided some thought on the contents and look of that new STANDARD for obsolescing BIG government and creeping democracy.
Top: The pyramid that still tops the Washington Monument obelisk, with the words LAUS DEO (Praise GOD) emblazoned on it.
Center: An inverted (UPSIDE-DOWN) pyramid, standing on its point, representing the ‘Rules’ by which the Constitution is meant to be abided.
Top layer (widest part) = We The People
Second layer (narrower) = LOCAL Governments (public servants)
Third layer (narrower still) = STATE Governments (public servants)
Fourth layer (narrower still – ending in a point, and evenly divided into 3 parts): LEGISLATURE, JUDICIARY, & EXECUTIVE, with the Executive (public servant #1) at the lowest point.
Cutting across the bottom point would be a wide and solid cross-arm, indicating the Standard for Public Servant Number One’s job, the EXECUTIVE, with the following words emblazoned on it: ARTICLE II, Section 1: natural born Citizen
Finally, the stout staff upon which all this is mounted would be a multitude of 34 fine strands – representing The Declaration and the 7 Articles + 27 Amendments (so far), that have held this inverted and upside-down pyramid upright for over 200 years!
America’s STANDARD– Reprised
This treatise is a request for all you artists out there to help design this newly reprised STANDARD for the RESTORATION OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.
Please submit your image to me at NBTurner@Earthlink.net, so that we can use your ideas in the struggle ahead.
In the meantime, let us continue to do everything* we can to keep Obama’s name off the ballot in the primaries and/or the general elections of 2012, so that the cross-arm and the supporting staff can remain intact; for without them, our upside-down pyramid will surely fall.
In Liberty and in Truth.
