Whose Government Is It—The People Or The Politicians!



“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, 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."

Thus begins the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States.

Notice how the first three words are written larger then all the rest of the document, with total pride and complete dedication to rights of the citizens of this great Republic. Have you really ever noticed that the history of this country for the past hundred years—since 1890 to the present appears blurred and out of focus. It is as if since the inception of those years we have had the greatest of Presidents and Statesmen and Judges and Legislators in all of human history.

Nothing could be farther from the actual truth! Our history has been so rewritten to reflect that there exists a great debate—an argument between the parties and party ideology. The great argument is not Republican or Democrat, or Conservative versus Liberal or even Right versus Left. Those are merely labels for failed policies and ideologies of the parties past and present. The great debate is Progressive Republicans embattled with Progressive Democrats. So which form of government do you want; Progressive Republican big government or Progressive Democratic big government in total control of the country and exercising complete executive command over every aspect of the lives of its citizens.

During the 1980’s Liberal became a dirty word to use, and thus the name “Progressive,” became the word of choice. The Progressive movement was born in the colleges and universities in Europe in the 1800s. It is based upon the Hegelian thought and philosophies of J. G. Fichte (1762-1814) and F. W. J. von Schelling (1775-1854), and Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831) and it belongs to the period of “German idealism.” It was adopted here in the U.S. during the 1890s by college professors and the elites from the early part of that century. The curious aspect here is the large number of progressive presidents, politicians, judges and educators of the last hundred years who have infiltrated nearly every aspect of our life without the American public ever being aware. Many facets of American government, education, lifestyles and religion have become attacked and socially engineered by the progressives from both parties.

The United States literally is a nation at siege with radical Progressives who are determined to re-shape this country into what they believe is for the social good and social justice. From the time of Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson they believe that some form of Social Administration is for the good of the many unwashed masses who cannot even think for themselves but they must be led by a group of the elite thinkers. The citizens of this great Republic are considered to be beneath their notice and acknowledgement as the people who have helped to create independence, free thought, free will, free markets, wealth and the propensity to live in Freedom through great sacrifice.

Woodrow Wilson is the prime example of the first real Progressive Dictator in the 20th century. This man became the 28th president of this country and he was a known white supremacist and a racist. He routinely closed down newspapers and magazines and threatened the personal freedoms of the citizens of this land. He used an army of badged hoodlums to frighten people into submission and even at one point had approximately 175,000 people imprisoned as political prisoners. Many of whom he refused to later commute their sentences even though the charges were later proven to be in many instances false. This single man was the first American Dictator who ruled over the land with an Iron heel at the throats of the people, and he did so with impunity. Examine his personal papers and all of prevailing thoughts are contained there within those pages. His 1890 essay entitled "Leaders of Man," proves to be the most chilling as he compared people to tools and those in power as administrators; within the pages of this essay we the people are little better then clay to be shaped and molded into what an elite needs for his enrichment. Woodrow Wilson is undeserving of being called one of our greatest of presidents, he was basically a tin-plated Ego Elite Progressive Dictator.

The group of elites has become inculcated into many areas of our lives. Look at our Public Officials, learned Academia, the Court system, and all branches of the Government have been successfully infested by this group of elites who believe that only they have the vision of the anointed and their world view is the correct one. One need only examine the current administration to gleam that all of them share complete and total disdain for the citizens and also utter contempt and arrogance when approached by the regular people of this land. The current President is not the only progressive in the government. In fact since 1890 nearly all of the presidents (Only six were not progressives) and many senators, treasurers and the cabinets of many of the presidents were packed with progressives from both parties.

In the end much of this country has been socially engineered by both parties while many Americans closed their eyes and slept. Content in the fact that they let the Government take care of their very existence. Generations upon generations have slept secure in the fact that they were cared for in some sort of Matrix-like existence! This is the most heinous crime of all because only now are the citizens beginning to awaken from “This Matrix,” and many are standing at the rampart and are shouting “I’m Mad As Hell And We Want Our Country Back!” The greatest hoax of all time has been perpetrated upon the American citizens of this great nation!

This country was forged on certain principles and ideas of which if one reads the founding documents one will find some very startling information on display. In today’s schools the original founding documents are no longer taught effectively. The argument that the founders were rich white slave owners seems to bear more significance then the establishment of independence, freedom and liberty. But the truth is this that those slave-owners, those old white men of no means and of no vision—men of sand as they have been called!! They dared to dream---dreams of a nation based upon liberty and freedom for all!! They dared to touch a land of life and liberty whereby freedom ran as a river within the streets!! They dared to fight for a land that stretched from one coast to another coast—from sea to shining sea! Whereby these shores of freedom and liberty would never end!

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are not a right—they are in fact a privilege! They are produced from hard work and strong desires for better things, and of love for the broken masses that come forth with no hope and no tomorrows---and no faith in God---but God is a truth that will find them and in peace and harmony for that is why there is an almost divine vision that guides the citizens into the future! For there are no huddled masses no poor–only here are the free people who stand forth with muskets armed and ready to fight as a nation of Patriots---forevermore! They wish to take back their country from the fools and bureaucrats and demagogues’ who laugh and hold them with disdain and utter contempt! For they make their arrogance known and apparent by having speed-readers read submitted bills to them and they refuse to read such bills and then they make laws with no regard to the citizens of this land. The servants have become the masters and the people suffer from tyranny!

Thomas Jefferson once wrote, “When the people fear the Government that is Tyranny----When the Government fears the people that is liberty!”

Fine words that reach forth and touch the spirit and forge a path into future history of the citizens of this country, but we must never forget that this nation was built upon great sacrifice and baptized in blood by those ancestors who dared to construct a nation and dreamed of a land of freedom and liberty! Consider the men who marched and trained in a frozen Valley Forge and those soldiers who fought and died upon the shores of Normandy! We must never forget the full intensity of their devotion and dedication and most of all their sacrifices!

Examine the words of Abraham Lincoln so that we may more fully appreciate all of what this country--this single great nation meant at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on November 19, 1863. These are the final sentences from that address. Abraham Lincoln led this country through four of the bloodiest years in this country’s history! But he felt that in the full measure of time this nation would eventually become as one and be healed again. He felt that the greatest days of Americans within the United States were in many years yet to come.

“The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses…yearning to breathe free (“The wretched refuse of your teaming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"---This is from a poem is called the New Colossus and it was written by Emma Lazarus--1883).”

The first line of that epic poem is embossed upon the great tome that The Statue of Liberty holds in the New York Harbor. Lady Liberty lights the way to a new future and dreams of freedom and a new life of liberty! Re-read the lines and now the understanding of this mighty nation becomes clear as we as the citizens can ill-afford to be a country led by foolish demagogues, but we must become a nation of patriots a shining example of freedom and conviction within a savage world! This land is my land and it can become your land once more but not without great sacrifice and understanding and belief in the citizenry of this nation.

May God Bless The United States of America!
