James Madison, the "Father of the Constitution"

(Mar. 26, 2010) — Obama’s Unconstitutional Health Care Treachery is just the beginning of a dark and sinister age in American history. Now that Obama & Co. have found the legislative mechanisms to subvert the Law of the Land on the federal health care grab, they intend to rush forward with the passage of “financial reform,” “energy reform,” and “Immigration reform,” none of which are any type of “reform.”

All of these measures are massive federal power and resource grabs, moving the vast resources of the United States from private sector control to public sector control. It is called socialism, by way of democratic process.

All of it will be done over the next few months without the consent of the governed, before the November election when leftists expect to lose their fifteen minutes of power in the voting booth. They plan to advance their anti-American agenda no matter how many stand opposed and in such a manner that it can never be reversed.

As I pointed out very clearly in my most recent column, for any federal law to be “constitutional,” it must meet this minimum standard…

  1. It must be within the limited federal powers enumerated in the Constitution
  2. It must enjoy the support of the vast majority of “the governed,” from which all federal powers are derived
  3. It must not infringe upon the unalienable individual rights of any citizen
  4. It must not infringe upon the rights of any state, protected by the Tenth Amendment
  5. It must become law by way of legal legitimate legislative process

Obama’s Health Care treachery violates all five of these standards and as a result, it cannot be allowed to stand. They are just getting started. This is about much more than health care, yet health care is where the people must put a stop to all of it.

How the rest of the world runs is of no consequence to Americans. In the United States of America, “the people” are the government, and our federal government derives every ounce of its power strictly from the “consent of the governed.” Our elected officials are not Kings; they are “servants.”

Implied Consent in the Election

Leftists claim, while they are in power, of course, but not when they are not in power — that winning an election “implies full consent” from the people and authorizes anything the newly elected want to do on the basis of the election results alone.

This is false, and even leftists know it when it is not leftists in charge. In the Unites States, even the majority does not have the authority to run roughshod over the minority, even when that minority is a single individual. So the notion that any minority has the authority to run roughshod over a vast majority is blatantly false.

Unlike any other nation on earth, the United States of America is a “representative republic,” which is to say that our elected officials must at all times “represent” the “will of the people.” Not the will of any minority, but the will of all Americans, defined by a “majority” of legal U.S. citizens.

Further, our representative republic is limited in scope and power, to the enumerated powers granted the federal government via the U.S. Constitution. Then federal powers are even further limited by certain “unalienable individual rights” further defined in the Bill of Rights.

As noted above in the five minimum standards, our federal government derives all of its power from the consent of the governed – all elected officials have taken an oath to uphold and defend these principles as their first obligation of office – and they are further prohibited from acting at odds with “the governed” by way of “unalienable individual rights” and extended specific limits found in the Bill of Rights.

Winning an election in no way releases any elected official from their oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution, or represent the will of the governed. Leftists scream this loudly when they are not in power.

Thomas Jefferson explained why we do NOT have a “democracy” – “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.”

Karl Marx explained why this is a problem – “Democracy is the road to socialism…”

Obama & Co. answer only to their power base, which is found in the Congressional Progressive Caucus and Congressional Black Caucus, both of which are taking orders from their parent organization, the Democratic Socialists of America.

Today’s Democratic Party is not “like socialism,” it is “democratic socialism.”

As even USA Today was forced to report, candidate Obama campaigned on his health care overhaul with a price tag of only $50-$65 billion. Obama signed a health care seizure bill estimated to cost more than ten times that amount, at $938 billion.

Politicians lie on the campaign trail. They promise what they think the people will buy, and then act differently once elected. This is why all politicians are limited in power to the “consent of the governed.” Winning an election does not make one King in America.

A Velvet Revolution

We the people – town hall, 912 and Tea Party folks all over the country, are involved in a “velvet revolution” in defense of individual freedom and liberty, a peaceful resistance against the rushing tide of anti-American Marxist principles, values and policies oozing out of the White House, Pelosi and Reid.

The left is working around the clock to paint every resister a “domestic terrorist” despite the well-known fact that it is demonstrators on the left, ACORN, SEIU and Teamsters who have a long history of violence.

It’s the leftist green movement and even the leftist anti-war movement which has again and again resorted to violence to get their message across.

Last September, more than 1,700,000 American patriots showed up for the 9/12 March in DC and there was not one arrest, not one broken window, not one reported act of violence, no burning streets and in fact, not even any garbage left behind.

In contrast, when Obama’s inaugural event ended, it looked like Woodstock had just left town, with piles of garbage in the wake. When a handful of Berkeley students heard that their college “entitlements” might be reduced in this tough economy, the streets of Berkeley burned once again.

To be certain, if the left keeps pushing for a fight with the pro-freedom American right, one day they are likely to get a fight for which they are ill-prepared. But few Americans seek violent revolution, preferring the constitutional tools put in place to make protecting freedom and liberty a peaceful process in this country.

Without Consent

There are two sides to every fight, and despite modern leftist psychobabble on the matter, there is a significant difference between the attacker and the victim.

Whether foreign enemy or domestic enemy, when people attack the Unites States of America at the core, at its foundation, they are the aggressor, the agitator, the provocateur. It short, they caused the fight to occur and they are responsible for whatever consequences follow…

They cannot pick a fight and then legitimately accuse their victims of “violence” in response. Every individual has an unalienable right to self-defense, and every American has both a right and a responsibility to the defense of the nation and all that it stands for…

What Obama & Co. are doing today they are doing without the consent of the people, which is to say, beyond the scope of power given them in the U.S. Constitution. That is a silent means of picking a fight with the pro-liberty right.

What we see today is that Americans are VERY tolerant people. They tolerate a whole laundry list of anti-American nonsense that they cannot really afford to tolerate.

But because they are a peaceful and optimistic bunch by nature, they persist in the search for peaceful solutions and resist the urge to resort to violence.

They can be provoked to violence however… and I don’t recommend it.

Calling them names won’t do it; the left has been calling them names for decades now. Disagreeing with their views won’t do it either.

But keep attacking their freedom and liberty in a heavy-handed manner, shoving them into an economic corner and making them believe that there is no peaceful solution to the daily assault on everything they believe in, and you just might get them fighting mad sooner or later.

If the people of this country become convinced that their elected “servants” are going to destroy their nation and their children’s future no matter how many citizens stand opposed peacefully, they very well could resort to non-peaceful action to save the things they care about most.

If any elected politician or political party thinks that they are more important than the US citizen they are sworn to serve, they are sadly mistaken.

If you won’t listen to the American majority and can’t be reined in or replaced by peaceful processes, then what comes next won’t make anyone happy.

This isn’t Europe or North Korea. This is the Unites States of America and this country belongs to the governed, not the elected servant.

Elected officials come and go.

Thomas Jefferson said it best: “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

America is the beacon of freedom and liberty all over the world. If America is not free, no place on earth will be free. So tread carefully in Washington, DC.

The American people will not live in fear of their government for long. It’s not in our DNA.

Am I “inciting” violence?”  I work around the clock to promote peaceful solutions.

But I have no hesitation in predicting violence. Violence is what happens when all peaceful solutions for conflict have been eliminated.

No matter one’s political ideology, if your agenda does not enjoy the consent of the majority of citizens, don’t do it. You are picking a fight you don’t want…

Editor’s Note: All of the egregious violations of the Constitution have occurred because of the usurpation of the presidency by Obama, who is not now and never can be a “natural born Citizen.”

  1. Fantastic essay!

    One small point grabbed my attention. Item 5 of the requirements for a law to be ‘constitutional’ states “It must become law by way of legal legitimate legislative process.” To clarify, I presume legal legitimate legislative process includes an authorizing signature from an eligible and authorized executive.
    My only solace since obamacare was enacted is that eventually a court will compel obama to prove his eligibility and, once that has failed, everything he has signed will become null and void — as if each instance never occurred. An added point of solace is that such court order can occur any time before November, 2012 !

  2. I received the following non-response from Senator Fred Hemmings regarding the TP&E Hawaii Petition Campaign:

    March 23, 1010

    To whom it may concern:

    Dwelliing on the non-issue of President Obama’s place of birth is harmful. His birth was reported in Honolulu papers and has been validated by Hawaii State officials. You are hurting those of us with legitimate concerns with President Obama’s ultra left agenda by the dogged pursuit of this non-issue. Please stop and concentrate your efforts on the huge and vexing problems that Obama is creating by his disastrous policies.


    Senator Fred Hemmings
    State of Hawaii

    Mrs. Rondeau replies: This is a very telling note from the senator. If Obama’s place of birth were confirmed, our doubts wouldn’t be getting stronger and stronger each day that he wasn’t born there. We also know he was never eligible in the first place because of his foreign father. It sounds as if the senator is worried that perhaps some onus of responsibility will fall on him as a state legislator who did nothing to compel the release of Obama’s records. I also think he suspects that Obama has lied and had help doing it. One by one, Hawaii’s public servants are trying to convince us that Obama’s birth is a red herring, which seems to mean that it is actually a hot potato!

    1. Hi Sharon,

      The Left desperately wants the eligibility issue to be a “non-issue” because they want the Constitution of the United States to be a “non-issue”…

      Keep up the good fight,

      Mrs. Rondeau replies: We will continue our activities until every single fact about Obama is exposed for all to see.

    2. Hey, Hemmings, putting something in the paper does not make it so. Secondly, your state “officials” have been proven to be liars about all other things “Obama”. I have not seen one “effort” from you on rejecting the lies and deceptions put forth by the illegal alien usurper. When are you going to get busy ???

  3. I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents. – James Madison

  4. There is absolutely no need for violence.

    All that is required is for an advance guard of a few hundred thousand Patriots to march on Washington DC to demand that the ‘elective dictatorship’ that has taken over the Federal Government be held to account.

    However, instead of meekly going home at the end of one day, these Patriots should stay put until all of our grievances have been acknowledged and rectified. A National support network should be created to provide logistical support for our advance guard.

    We are Americans, It is time for us all to stand up and fight for our Freedom. It is time for the post-World War II generation to start to measure up to the example set by ‘The Greatest Generation’, who showed the World what Americans can do, once stirred into action.

    Now it falls to us to pick up the beacon of Liberty and hold it high and then keep it there.

  5. BRAVO! Well stated. The evidence of usurper, liar-in-chief, Barry Soetero aka Barack Obama pushing the envelope of his syncretistic Marxist/communist/socialist agenda is apparent for all to see. Examining from a wide angle lens of the advisers and czars to the president only ONE conclusion can be drawn, their unity AGAINST the values and moral integrity which formed this Republic. If it takes lying, bullying, backroom dealing, bribing, and circumventing the checks and balances of Constitutional process they will do it.

    With great consternation and alarm, our Republic teeters on personal discipline to act and react with peaceful means. However, just like the sports scenario when the referee throws the flag of personal foul, almost always it is against the player who responded to the assault rather than the one who initiated it. The foul play has already been committed against the American people, as JB Williams effectively opines, the flag of violation will be thrown by whom? WE THE PEOPLE!

  6. Most leftists are unfit to live in a free society.

    Encourage them to emigrate. Canada has been
    a popular destination for 200+ years.
