That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
~ from our Declaration of Independence, July 4th, 1776
The only thing more enticing to the Despot than Little People would be Little “Subservient” People. Make no mistake, the three politicians whose quotes I headlined in “The Little People” are textbook Despots who are living, breathing contradictions to the very Preamble of our Declaration of Independence!
Our challenge, as patriotic law-abiding Americans, is to not throw out the baby of good governance with the bathwater polluted by their treasonous corruption and malfeasance. Rather, the former must be secured before we finally drain the filthy murk of the latter…by the Grace of God!
Hillary’s “What difference does it make”, Obama’s NSA is Paul Revere fairy tale, and Cuomo’s “There’s no place for you in New York” comments all point to one crystal-clear fact. Government does not respect the people, and it certainly doesn’t fear the people. We don’t need to draw a conclusion from this disturbing fact…history does it for us! The age-old question has always been, what are we going to do about it?
Well, we could do absolutely nothing different than what we’re doing now which…
A) They would LOVE us to do!
B) It happens to be Einstein’s definition of insanity!
C) If freedom is oxygen, doing nothing is condemning ourselves to death by slow suffocation. Doing nothing is really just a less humiliating term for Subservience!
It’s probably a bit early for violent revolution, but there’s a smarter and more loving way to turn the table on these despicable characters. Daisy Luther (Great name!) has written Random Acts of Revolution as a wonderful roadmap out of Subservience. The only change I would have respectfully made would have been to refer to our resistance as a counter-revolution since the Oligarchs that have unlawfully usurped the US Government are the actual revolutionaries. Be that as it may, her incremental approach is smart and way more palatable to folks who are just beginning to see the light! For instance, by reading her piece you have already done part of your part…learn! Armed with this great information you will now be able to accomplish yet another part by passing it on to educate others. See how simple…and not one drop of blood!
She has a refuse to comply point that is huge and comes after the learning and education. We said we do not wish to throw out the baby of good governance, but they need to know in the pit of their black souls that we WILL NOT comply with their unconstitutional decrees…even if it means our own unlawful arrests! Again, I wish to emphasize that it is not our intention to make the tough and honorable job of law enforcement tougher. This clip is a wonderful tutorial on how to respectfully and lawfully refuse to comply.
Perhaps the most powerful way to resist the wolf is to not let him sink his teeth in you in the first place. Say thanks but no thanks is a fabulously sage way for those of us in the most corrupt pay-to-play State in the Union (New York!) to pull their teeth!
And finally for my friends in the Lower Hudson Valley of New York and Northern New Jersey, and in the spirit of learning, educating and refusing to comply…I’d love to tip my hat to the be involved in your kids education point by asking you to please note the following event in Suffern organized by my friend Lynn and sent to me by my friend Kim. Please help us spread the word and I’ll see you there:
> I have information to pass along regarding a meeting that is scheduled to take place at the Suffern Public Library (210 Lafayette Avenue, Suffern, NY) on February 10th (7pm – 9-pm) regarding Common Core, PARCC, etc.
As many of you know, Common Core implementation in New York is about 2 years ahead of New Jersey. NY is experiencing huge problems with Common Core and the PARCC assessments. Both parents and teachers are livid about the “dumbing down” of students via the Common Core Standards and their frustration is only a small window into what we in New Jersey will be experiencing in the very near future if we don’t stop the implementation of Common Core.
> Scheduled to speak are a school board president, a teacher, a concerned parent and my dear friend, Carolee Adams, President of Eagle Forum of NJ.
> Carolee will give a national perspective on the situation our schools, children, teachers and communities face because of their involvement in CC.
> I plan to attend and would ask you circulate this message to everyone you think might be interested.
> PS – Another reason for concern in NJ is Gov. Christie’s remarks and possible plans to lengthen the school day/year. My thought on that subject is…garbage in/garbage out. Lengthening the school year will only expose our children to more CC experimental programs, more testing, nonsensical teaching methods and higher taxes.
