I have a few beefs with the common parlance of the day…
First: No one talks about patriotism anymore, except to claim everyone is a patriot!
To which I say: Hogwash!
Second: No one talks about heroism anymore, except to say that everyone is a hero, or every victim is a hero!
To which I say: Hogwash!
Third: We are constantly heckled to vote either of 2 ways, Republican or Democrat, as if American depended upon it.
To which I say: Hogwash!
THE SAD REALITY
The sad reality is that the Democratic Party AND the Republican Party have corrupted America.
They are not our saviors. Patriotism does not consist in being a member of one or another. Our loyalty is not measured by our devotion to one or another!
Rather the major parties have corrupted American in my opinion.
There is no longer any public forum for the expression of an opinion without it being characterized or co-opted by one or the other party.
But worst of all the parties have so infiltrated and taken possession of the political order of the United States, that they are the true bi-polar power structures in the country.
Even the Constitution does not mean anything anymore. The real power is the parties.
And the parties are controlled by the same New World Order elitists. So they are nothing more than stage-left and stage-right of the same theatrical company.
But the worst they have done is corrupt the judicial branch: because the nature of the Constitution was to prevent the Executive and Legislative branches from being undermined by greedy power-hungry careerists, by means of a Judicial branch which would faithfully uphold the laws of the country and provide We the People with a means to redress our grievances. A right to which is guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.
The Federal Courts are failing us, and have been failing us for a long time.
Because of party politics.
How does this come about?
Through the Senatorial Confirmation Hearings.
No one gets past the withering debate unless he shows himself to be subservient to the party politics power play, in which the parties alone run the country and the non-affiliated citizen has no standing.
Such confirmed justices would never question the violation of the Constitution by the parties; in fact they have developed a doctrine of jurisprudence to do away with any attempt by common citizens to see that the Executive or Legislative branches follow the Constitution. This doctrine is called the doctrine of standing.
The doctrine of standing is supposed to be invoked to prevent frivolous lawsuits.
But the Courts have applied it to give them reason not to hear cases of non-constitutional behavior. They actually say this in plain terms, in Schlesinger v. Reservists Committee to Stop the War, where they give a faux reason not to uphold the Constitution. Supreme Court Justice Berger writes in his majority decision in 1974:
Moreover, when a court is asked to undertake constitutional adjudication, the most important and delicate of its responsibilities, the requirement of concrete injury further serves the function of insuring that such adjudication does not take place unnecessarily. This principle is particularly applicable here, where respondents seek an interpretation of a constitutional provision which has never before been construed by the federal courts.
This is an invalid argument, because it is obvious to anyone with a highschool education, that when the Court upholds or defends the meaning of any provision in the Constitution, the entrance of the Court into the question is not only “un-necessary”, but essential to the continuance of the constitutional order; nor can such an “intrusion” be a danger to the republic, because to uphold the Constitution cannot be a danger to the Constitution!
But, to whom it is a danger?
First to the judges. Why? Because they are appointed after confirmation by the Senate (party controlled) and can be removed, by means of impeachment, by Congress (party controlled).
Thus if the parties are obviating the Constitution, a Federal judge is literally taking his career in his hands if he should rule against the parties’ usurpation of power.
Second to the major parties. Why? Because if Federal judges slapped their wrists every time they exceeded their constitutional obligations or powers, they could not work to overthrowing America and establishing a new political order where ONLY the parties have power, and in which there are no rights for the common man.
I won’t mention the outrageous claims made in the same above-mentioned case, namely that tax-payers have no standing to see that the Constitution be upheld by federal courts…don’t even try to remind the Courts that the cry of the American Revolutionaries: “no taxation without representation,” is just as valid as the cry of the American Constitutionalists, of today, who shout: “no taxation without the observance of the Constitution”!
If we have a usurper in the Presidency, it is because the parties have arrogated to themselves the interpretation of the requirements thereof, and the Federal Courts have acquiesced entirely from their duty to check the parties usurpation of power.
It remains to be asked, therefore, what duty does the average American citizen have anymore to pay taxes to such a Federal Government, which no longer follows the Constitution?
Is not such a government a faux government? One which pretends to be our Government, but which is really the tool for the exploitation and rape of America?
