When The People No Longer Matter

The founding documents of America are rich in their thoughtfulness and wisdom. Our government was developed with the belief of freedom and liberty for all. Read the words of Thomas Jefferson. He said all men are equal and have inalienable rights. The constitution begins with the simple and effective phrase:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Our country was founded on the principle of "the people" not only participating in their government but becoming the government. The wisdom of our founding fathers lies in the fact that the developed the constitution based upon self governance. However, career politicians have become elitists that rule rather than govern. career politicians have come to believe that it is they that know what is best for the country and not the people. The career politicians have taken our country away from the people and decided to give the country to themselves.

The main issue is the two party system in America. The career politicians place their party ahead of the people. Instead of the politicians representing the people, they represent their party. Is there any wonder nothing beneficial ever gets accomplished. Is there any wonder that America has become a country for the extremes rather than the middle? Obama once said "thats what elections are for". This one statement by the President shows the disdain that career politicians like Obama have for the people of this country. Obama himself relegated he people to the sidelines. Instead of governing Obama wants to rule. Instead of promoting the general welfare of the people, Obama promotes himself. We have many issues in our country but the career politicians are not listening to the people.

Last summer, the pathetic pawns of the media were aghast that "we the people" showed up at our representatives townhalls and called them out. The pathetic pawns pushed the meme that "we the people" should respect the politicians. I have news for the pathetic pawns, the politicians are employed by us, "we the people". It is the politicians that should respect us not the other way around. The politicians serve at the convenience of the people. "We the people" should be held in reverence not the other way around. "We the People" should not be dismissed except for election day. Our government should be responsive to our needs and not just responsive to the needs of the politicians. Our career politicians have become elitists that are attempting to fulfill a higher level personal need. Our politicians believe they are above us and should be dictating what we need and desire. Our career politicians are pathetic clowns searching for inner salvation at the expense of the people they are supposed to serve.

All we have to do is look around us. The American people were adamantly against the health care proposal, yet the career politicians rammed it through against our will. We attended townhalls but were dismissed as angry mobs. We protested on capitol but were lied about and called racists. We begged and pleaded with our government, but we were ignored. Our politicians were even bribed to accept a government takeover we did not want. In Missouri last week, Proposition C passed and the state outlawed the individual mandate. Senator Claire McCaskill said in one breath the people have been heard. Yet in the next breath she said the vote didn't really matter.

In California, the people spoke and passed proposition 8. The people of California wanted marriage defined as between a man and a woman. An activist judge struck it down as being unconstitutional. I have a problem with that. It can't be unconstitutional when voted on by the people. This was not a law passed by the legislature that must pass constitutional muster. No this was passed by the people, the owner of the document. The people make the rules and can change the constitution as written. It is the will of the people, not the will of the courts. The courts in California provided the right for homosexuals to marry, when the people took that right away, an activist judge cried foul and said once given a right can not be taken away without due process. Unfortunately their was due process. That due process was in the form of a constitutional amendment to the California constitution defining marriage.

In Arizona, the people have spoken. Arizonians want the law of the land enforced. Instead of yielding to the will of the people, Obama had his justice department sue Arizona. Another activist judge decided to strike down the meat of the law. Arizona did not change federal law, they just voted in a law that would enforce our immigration laws. Obama says it is an anti immigration law. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is a law to uphold the law of the land. In a lawful society we must obey and enforce the laws. The Arizona law is a pro immigration law meant to protect legal immigrants and residents against those that are in the country illegally. The people of this country want our borders protected.

We the people want the government to promote domestic tranquility. Is it promoting domestic tranquility by allowing a mosque to be built in the shadows of round zero? The people of New York City are against the mosque being built. Yet the city government is going against the will of the people and allowing the mosque to be built. Many activist supporters are claiming the right to religious freedom as why we should allow the mosque to be built. This is a weak argument. No one is stopping the practice of religion. There are plenty of Mosque's in the city in which to practice their religion. Claiming first amendment freedom of religion here is like claiming freedom of speech when someone wants to place a KKK museum next to Martin Luther King Jr.s gravesite.

We are a Nation today that has seen it better days. Our career politicians have become elitists that have taken our government away from us and made it their own. We have become a country that is ruled by the elitists rather governed by the people. We are on a path of unsustainable debts. We are on the path of moral decline. We are on a path towards destruction. Our government is not providing for a common defense of the people as evidenced by the invasion along our southern border. Our government is not promoting domestic tranquility as evidenced by our career politicians lying about racial epithets being tossed around. Our prosperity and strength rely on the will of the people and the individual freedom and liberty afforded us in our constitution. As we can plainly see, we will begin to fall like all other great civilizations when the people no longer matter.

This is what the people need to understand. They are nothing but a tool to the Pathetic Pawns and their NWO masters. They do not care about the people, they want to own them.
