there was a grand land where individuals achieved great things. They fought
for their freedom and formed a representative government, based upon a constitution.
Their leaders were noble men and understood the lessons of the past. A system
called “federalism” was designed that shared authority and restricted the
concentration of power in any particular political office. A unique distribution
of duties and responsibilities were defined and all remaining functions and
ruling charges were retained by separate and independent states that made
up this fine experiment for union. What an admirable attempt to protect the
human dignity of citizens and to invent an environment for personal prosperity
and that gracious concept - the pursuit of happiness.
Liberty was the benchmark for the “good society”. The motto - "That government
is best which governs least," popularly know as the Thomas Jefferson Perspective,
actually was used by Henry David Thoreau and opens his pamphlet, Civil Disobedience.
This clear and elegant standard is still the most graceful rule by which
all governments should be bound. No wonder that the United States was that
shining light on the top of the hill! Yet, during the long saga of national
discovery, there were few examples where that light could be seen as a "Shining
City on the Hill."
The last three Presidents have been an unmitigating miscarriage and destroyer
of the essence of our
purpose as a people and country. But this gang of three,
are not alone. In the last half century, only Ronald Reagan and Dwight Eisenhower
can be even remotely seen as defenders of Liberty. However, even these men
failed miserably in implementing the reality of limited government. The time
has now passed for hoping for another Dutch or Ike. What we are left with
are Dear and “Beloved Leaders” . . .
Even for the uninformed and those living in denial, it is self evident that
presidents are selected and not elected. The process for ascendancy weeds
out honest men and certainly any real reformers. With each succeeding president,
the road to absolute rule marches on, uninterrupted. George H. Bush sought
the cognomen of great -- the "Glorious Leader" -- as the patriarch elder
of the publicly acknowledged New World Order. William Jefferson Clinton sought
fame, ill-gotten fortune and satisfaction from harlequins, who would call
him Dear and lavish praise and affection, while he angled the heights of
excess and treason. Now we have in office the "Beloved Leader" King George
II, a man who’s pseudo piety is only exceeded by his ability to look too
insipid to be a congenital liar.
All three men are frauds. They share and have identical unity in their fundamental
policies of despotism. Moreover, any approved future successors will just
build upon the substructure of this endless construction project of universal
gulag. The existence of this systemic absolutism is ignored by the public,
as they relegate their futile efforts behind finding a ‘white knight’ that
will save the Republic.
The essential component that is consistently avoided and denied is that the
office of the presidency is the core problem itself. When our country was
formed with the consent of independent states, an ingenious separation of
powers, called "federalism" was adopted. The design of the American Constitution
directly reflects the framers' decision that power should not be permitted
to be centralized. That single admission to the failures of all other governing
systems and the intent to limit the power of a would be monarch, is what
made America unrivaled in her quest to achieve a society where Liberty was
Today it is not just the man who holds the office of president, it is the
entire bureaucratic branch that in theory, is under his direction, which
has perfected the tyranny that befalls our nation. "Executive Orders" are
not constitutional. Generations of incessant agencies are oppressive. Demands
for endless intervention and insatiable budgets produce concentration and
centralization of control. The dictates of the executive branch overshadows
the legitimate authority of Congress, relegating legislators as mere rubber
stamps. Courts have their judges chosen who will pass the test of protecting
the establishment of the State; namely the president who claims to be czar.
The executive branch in all its forms, functions and reach is the junta,
the cabal and the cartel that enforces arbitrary rule of the "Beloved Leader."
The Presidency has stolen supreme power as it seeks totalitarian control.
The bureaucracy will always have competing factions for favor. It often works
counter to any stated policy. But it always closed ranks to protect the entire
system, that claims legitimacy and cover for the criminal enterprises that
maintains the autocracy.
Liberty must be extinguished for the totalitarian state to flourish. Imperialism
must be practiced abroad to ensure submission to the most powerful man in
the world. Obedience must be extracted from the domestic population, as tribute
to the dear one - that beloved leader - who bring glory to the absolute STATE.
No longer many independent and sovereign states preserving a mutual and beneficial
union; it’s now only about the empire!
Even Julius Caesar was denied the title of emperor. He was only appointed
the rank of dictator. Though, the designate of Caesar is equivalent to a
"Beloved Leader," Rome still had a Senate. Today, the legislature only seeks
their pension, a cushy lobby career or hosting a media venue.
Until the legislature asserts their rightful role and slays the bureaucratic
beast into submission and accountability, the presidency will only grow in
empowerment. We will be cursed with additional arrogant dear leaders, as
long as courts pervert the law and interpret the constitution to fit the
whims of the current beloved leader. As it stands now the genius of "federalism",
is dead. It’s demise is proportional to our loss of individual liberty. As
long as the public believe that any leader is dear, they will be graced with
more aspirants for the image of beloved and the legacy of glorious.
The Presidency needs to be abandoned. State governments need to reassert
and take back their valid roles and responsibilities. The federal vermin
has become a behemoth. The executive for central command and control is a
despot, and all the alphabet agencies are mercenary overseers for enslavement.
The plantation mentality accepts and even longs for omniscient royalty. George
W. Bush is just another gangster in an unbroken line of psychopaths that
want to be king. Even Oliver Cromwell’s "Lord Protector" function of England,
was short lived and the monarchy was restored. A weak presidency, under whatever
name or any title, is a necessity to realize a civil climate, where individual
rights can be protected and preserved.
When people forgo adoration in "Beloved Leaders", they will take a giant step to set themselves free . . .
