There can be no Blessings of Liberty without Security!

I find research, compassion, sharing, and being solution driven and calls to action, interesting. The call to take action may also, be thought of as, a “call to arms.” When it comes to the Blessings of Liberty, this is, “our call to ”arms”!!

Few people understand the 2nd Amendment or what is behind it, in having “it”, in the Constitution.

This ignorance is caused by our failure to understand the Constitution and what is behind it. We do not understand it because, we are not taught or we do not choose to take up “arms”, for it. That “it” is, the Declaration of Independence.

To be clear, the 2nd Amendment is, inextricably bound to the Constitution. It cannot be separated from it. The Constitution is, inextricably bound to the Declaration of Independence. It cannot be separated from it.

“Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.” (1)

Euclid

(1) A Mathematical axiom by Euclid, called the Father of Geometry, who lived around 300 BC, in Alexandria Egypt.

For clarity and simplicity, I will use two documents and 8 words from them:

1. “Life”
2. “Liberty”
3., 4., 5., 6. “The Pursuit of Happiness”
7. “Arms”
8. “Secure”

The Declaration of Independence is, declaratory of many things, but most importantly, of unalienable rights that among these are– “Life,” “Liberty,” and, “The Pursuit of Happiness.”

The Constitution is, the resolve to be readied and active, to protect, defend and preserve (“Secure”), these and all rights, for ourselves and our posterity– to, of and by, the collective, WE the People.

Although unalienable rights which are, endowed by God, would apply to all humankind the world over, the United States of America put it in writing, in our founding documents. Due to the presence of evil or if you prefer, the corruption of our innate imperfection and therefore, a proclivity (tendency), towards corruption, this necessitates “arms”, to protect, defend and preserve (“Secure”), these rights.

The issues are, behavior and responsibility. Neither can be legislated. No law can force anyone to behave responsibly. It can only warn and punish those, which do not act responsibly.

Does anyone have the right to be uncivil towards any other? Think about that the next time you think about “civil rights”, irresponsibly act or behave in any uncivil manner. Courtesy and responsibility are also, “arms” to secure, “The Blessings of Liberty!”

Courtesy and responsibility are also, “arms” to secure, “The Blessings of Liberty!

Every citizen in the USA has the right to bare “arms” and the right to exercise that right, in a responsible and “civil” manner. Because some may not act responsibly and in a civilized manner, this is exactly WHY, we have the right to bare “arms” in the first place. Actually, this second amendment right, follows the first–

First Amendment:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

U.S.A. Constitution, First Amendment

The whole purpose of this entire amendment is inextricably bound to, the Declaration of Independence and to rights that among these are– “Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness.”

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

Following this, let us now read the–

Second Amendment.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

U.S.A. Constitution, Second Amendment

There are four phrases in this sentence. They are each separated by commas. But they are also, joined and form a complete thought, a whole sentence. This whole connected thought is, concluded with a period. A period (.),  as in – that’s it, done, moving on, next and etc.! Each phrase is separate, but–

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

What does “infringed” mean?

Infringed – to commit a breach or infraction of; violate or transgress:

What shall (not will, but absolute or absolutely), NOT, be “infringed?” The right of the people to keep and bare “arms” shall not be infringed! Why? Our right to keep and bear “arms” is necessary because, it is NECESSARY, to the security of a free state! A union of free states is only possible if, each state is free. The state is only free if, its people are free! How is this possible? The “state” can only be “free” by, a “well regulated militia”. Notice the words, “well regulated.” It does not say– unwell, uncontrolled, un-responsible’ or unorganized, undisciplined, unwise, unrestrained un-financed’ or unregulated, but “well regulated.” This is not possible without the necessity, to secure the freedoms of each state. Each state is only free if, its people are free. This freedom is only possible if, the people have the right and responsibly exercise this right, to keep and bare “arms”.  And this is only possible, if they are NOT and shall not be, infringed.

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

The importance of the second amendment is central to all our rights as individuals and as a people. Without the second amendment, no other right is possible to be exercised, realized and secured. Why, because of evil, infallibility and corruption inherent in all people, security is necessary. Servants of government are, after all also, just people, imperfect people.

In reading the Declaration of Independence of 1776, there are twenty-seven (27), separate acts of infringement of, unalienable rights, by the government (King George). He violated the separation of powers (legislative, executive and judicial). This compelled the colonies, in legal terms, to separate and to self-govern because, government (King George), had broken the laws of “Nature and Natures God”, universal law. To secure those rights, the colonists were prepared to and did, take up “arms”!

As security is the primary function of government, government being a necessary evil, its secondary function is, to be restricted and limited, so as to not infringe on the rights of its boss, its master, its people, WE the People.

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

Again, our rights do not come from government. The Declaration and the Constitution merely declare or list, what some (not all), of our rights are. And it declares– certain restrictions and limits its government or anyone; any thing, from power and authority, not granted by, WE the People.

“…in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added:”

Excerpt from: the Bill of Rights or the First Ten Amendments to the Constitution, March 4th, 1789

Note the words, “declaratory and restrictive clauses”. Any rights mentioned in these ten amendments are NOT given by our government, they are “declared” because, they have always existed, for and to all people, all over the world and for all time. What distinguishes our Republic from all other sovereign people is, we have many of our preexisting rights, and separation of powers and certain restrictions, put into writing and this Constitution is, the law of, WE the People. It was written to secure these rights, from even our government, which otherwise, would endeavor to infringe, violate, and transgress them!

It must be clear and clearly understood that neither the Declaration of Independence nor the Constitution gives or affords anyone, any rights whatsoever! The first merely declares some of them and the latter declares others, for the express purpose of, the government of, by, and for the people, to secure those rights. This is the primary responsibility of government, not to give anyone any rights, but to secure them. Rights cannot be exercised without security. Security is the responsibility of, not only our government to secure those rights, but also, everyone of us, WE the People!

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

Then there is the argument as to whether the Constitution of the United States is “organic”, as something unmovable and not subject to change? Or, is the Constitution “living”, as something dynamic and subject to change?

The two polar opposites are– the Constitution being “organic”, cannot be changed by interpreting what strict constitutionalists believe, the original intents that the writers of the Constitution meant. If the Constitution is a “living” document, then it can be interpreted and/or applied to the current times in which people live.

The difference between “Organic” and “Living” are crucial to understand. By “differences” I mean as they are held as separate, but not equal. If it is only “organic”, then it cannot be altered or changed and relates to the past. If it is “living”, it can be altered and changed and relates to the present. This would mean that the past is obsolete and only the present matters. In other words, “organic” law was, for the times in which they were written, but are not relevant today? These words were written in the 18th century and they were fine or OK then. But this is the 21st century and the past is past?

Perhaps the phrase “organic law”, was first suggested by Abraham Lincoln? The following is from his first inaugural address, as president of the United States.

“But no organic law can ever be framed with a provision specifically applicable to every question which may occur in practical administration.”

Excerpts from the first inaugural address, by Abraham Lincoln, Monday March 4th, 1861

I would like to point out that Lincoln never used the words “interpreted” or ”pending judicial review”. He never said it was from the past or obsolete. But he did say and it is written and the word is,  “application.” Some believe that what he meant by “no organic law” was, to imply that the Constitution is a “living” document? In reading the entire address, others suggest that Lincoln interchangeably used “organic law” with the Constitution and that is all he meant, nothing more and nothing less?

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, arguably once the Supreme Court’s most conservative member,  grabbed headlines for his remarks made, while speaking to a group of students at Southern Methodist University, in Dallas, Texas, January, 2013.

Scalia said law schools did not sufficiently emphasize that judicial decisions should reflect the letter of the law. You could replace the words, “letter of the law” with “organic law” or the single word, “constitution” as it was originally written. Justice Scalia spoke of schoolchildren coming to visit the Supreme Court and calling the Constitution, a– “living document” –

“It’s not a living document. It’s dead, dead, dead!”

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia

With all due respect to Justice Scalia, “organic law” is NOT dead and it is also, a “living document” because, it is also, “living law”! Yes, I believe the Constitution is both “organic” and “living” law, but not as you or others might think. Think of “organic” as something we need to sustain our lives. “Organic” is for, the “living.” What is “living” cannot long survive on inorganic matter. But the “living” thing changes throughout its life, like: seed —sprout, seedling, vegetative, budding, flowering and ripening (maturing or harvesting).

SEED —SPROUT, SEEDLING, VEGETATIVE, BUDDING, FLOWERING and RIPENING.

The seed (The Declaration & the Constitution), is “organic” law. There can be none without the other. They are one. It says what it means and means what it says.

The various stages of growth (the application), is “Living” law (dynamic and changing law).

As far as the Declaration and the Constitution are concerned, they are “organic” – unchanging and unmovable law, but it is also “living” – dynamic and changing law.

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

How can the law be both “organic” and “living”? The principles and precepts, our rights are, “organic” – unmovable and unchanging law. It is “living” – dynamic and movable law, as to its current or present application. 

The key to understanding this is, a single word. This word is NOT interpretation, but the word is, “application.” This is most clear when we look at the second amendment and the word, “arms”.

The word “arms” may be defined and understood, according to the means and methods and manners of the day in which they were first written, in our founding documents. The same would be equally true today or at anytime, by its “application”. Application proceeds from its “organic” nature and thus, it is “living.” In other words, its application, its “living” nature may and can be applied because of, its “organic” nature.” Our rights do not change nor do the restrictions or limitations of government, to not infringe those rights. This is “organic” law. So the only thing left is the “application” which is, the “living” law. Our law is, both “organic” and “living”–

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

First Amendment:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

U.S.A. Constitution, First Amendment

The context of the above text is, “organic” law. It, like the Declaration of Independence, declares that the former government (King George) had infringed universal, God-given, unalienable rights which are, from the laws of Nature or Natures God. The individual is endowed by their creator (not a person or persons), with certain unalienable rights that among these ARE, “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. The King tried to establish a religion (the Church of England of which he was also, the head). He prohibited the free exercise of any other religion. He abridged free speech and the press. He refused the peaceable assembly and the petitions to government (himself), for a redress of grievances.

The context of the above text is, “living” law. In order to form a more perfect union, the application of the organic law was to appoint and elect by the people, representatives of the people (Representatives and Senators). These representatives ONLY, are empowered to make law instead of one or a few. But they were not then nor are they now, able to make any law which infringe the right to secure any right, universal or God-given, from the Laws of Nature, Nature’s God, the creator whom, has endowed each individual with certain rights that among these are, “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness!”

The whole purpose of this entire amendment is inextricably bound to, the Declaration of Independence and to rights that among these are– “Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness.”

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

Following this, let us now read the–

Second Amendment.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

U.S.A. Constitution, Second Amendment

Some say and believe the words of the second amendment are opaque or unclear, too loose, faulty; imperfect and subject to interpretation, as the powers that be, see fit? Interpretation of law is, infringement! To understand the context of law is, how the law was applied!

Interpretation of law is, infringement! To understand the context of law is, how the law was applied!

Not you, not I and not anyone, has the right to interpret the law! It does not matter what anyone might think or believe that the writers of our founding documents originally meant and intended! That is interpretation and infringement. Their words were and are, specific and clear, crystal clear! The only thing different today should be, how these words apply.

There is much more to “arms” than bullets and guns

In the day in which this right was written, “arms” may have not been much more than a knife, an ax, a pitchfork or a single shot musket, as to physical “arms”. But in the past, today, and always, “arms” are more, much more than physical means to disarm an opponent, an enemy! Anything or anyone that would separate anyone, from their God-given unalienable rights is, an enemy.

To disarm would include— the physical means, mental, psychological, civil, responsible, courteous, emotional, spiritual or any other means necessary, to disarm an opponent or an enemy.

The fourth amendment states our right to be “secure” in our “persons, houses, papers and effects”, and that no one, no thing, not government and nothing, shall violate (infringe), that right. No one, not you nor I can can surrender, forfeit, transfer, trade give away or sell our rights because, they are unalienable, we are endowed with them! Our creator endows our rights! They are a gift! No one can take away our rights! It is so written in our founding documents. It is both “Organic” law and “Living” law when applied to their current or present time.

Not the NSA, not Google; not Facebook or any other person or thing, has the right to take and store our data, their agreements all be damned! And neither do we have the right to agree with those agreements! Why, because they infringe on our right, to secure our right, to secure our rights!

An application of our current times to our law (Organic & Living law), is to “arm” ourselves with data protection, virus protection, malware protection, ad-blockers, secure WIFI, virtual private networks (VPN’s), anti-spam, anti-phishing software and etc. or we should get off the Internet, away from social media, cellphones, anything digital or that which contains global positioning satellite (GPS), technology. All of these things are or can be also, “arms.” Competition is or can be “arms”! Build a better mousetrap, social media and etc. All of these “arms” are, a lot more than just knives, bullets and guns, are they not?!

Today, “arms” could include an AR-15 or some other high-tech number of “arms.” It does not matter what the physical means to disarm are, as they are inanimate objects, which have no ability to disarm! Only the individual can arm themselves and disarm an opponent, an enemy. Only responsible individuals so armed, form the security of a free state. Only responsible individuals are free. Only responsible individuals are well-regulated. Only responsible individuals, shall not be infringed.

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

Does anyone have the right to be uncivil towards any other? Think about that the next time you think about “civil rights”, irresponsibly act or behave in any uncivil manner. Courtesy and responsibility are also, “arms” to secure, “The Blessings of Liberty!”

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

Think of responsibility as, the ability to respond and to respond, responsibly. One could take a knife, kind words and courtesy to a gunfight and disarm their opponent if, they are first to respond and the first to disarm. A car, truck, home-made explosive, incendiary device, a drone and other such inanimate objects can be “arms”, but all of them, require the programming and control by people. It is responsible people that are to keep and bear “arms”, who shall not be infringed!

Just as the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States and its amendments do not define “arms” in the past (organic law), or its application (living law), in the present. Neither do these specify how many “arms” anyone may have or how much ammunition one may “keep and bear”. Consider this– why should our government be allowed to “keep and bear…” any “arms” that its people cannot? That would be or is, irresponsible and infringement of our right, to secure our right, to secure our rights! Now I am not suggesting that we all go out an acquire a nuclear device, but I do sometime wonder about microwaves and our cellphones, pretty much doing the same thing only more slowly? But remember the words of Franklin—

“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety”

Benjamin Franklin

The second amendment does not define the purposes of bearing “arms” only its reason, for security. They could have been used; they could be used, to acquire food, for sport, for collections, for investments, for history, and for protection of property and persons, papers, effects, and for etc., and even our data, our intellectual property. No, this right does not specify the type of “arms”or how many one could have and how much ammunition one may “keep”. The second amendment is, just a simple and complete sentence (organic law), which ends with a period. Its parts, separated by commas are–

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

Behind this right (the context, for which it applied), were the British that tried to confiscate “arms” and disarm the colonies. Today, this same thing follows armed conflict and even under the banner of a well-intended protest, in the name of, ‘gun control’. Why not call it, “arms” control, to be accurate? Why would or why should any responsible parent, guardian or caretaker allow, their children to protest against the right to secure the right, to secure our rights? Ignorantly or intentional, these are not acts of responsibility! Why would or should any responsible teacher, administrator or other adult, paid and entrusted by the public to educate our children, allow our children to protest, against the right to secure the right, to secure our rights? Through ignorance or if intentional, these are not the actions of responsible adults! Well, neither “arms” nor type and number of “arms” and amount of ammunition, are the issues!

Rights and responsibility are inextricably bound to each other. One cannot be separated from the other. One could be on the right track, but get run over, if they were to just stand there. No, that would NOT be a responsible thing to do!

Education is another way to arm and disarm.

“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people…They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.”

Thomas Jefferson

Self-government or self-governing, (Liberty) is, another way to arm and disarm (Secure).

“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety”

Benjamin Franklin

Franklin’s words above are often quoted, but rarely ever explained in the context (how it was applied), in which they were given. Without its context, these words are believed to suggest that we may agree to give up some or all of our liberty, in exchange for “a little safety” (security)? But this is not, absolutely not, what Franklin said! The Penn family ruled Pennsylvania from afar and appointed their own governor. The governor repeatedly blocked the legislature from raising money (taxing its people), for their security. The Penn family were willing to “pay” for the security of the state, in exchange for the legislature NOT, taxing their lands. This was an attempt by the Penn family, to violate “separation of powers”. They were trying to give this authority to the executive branch instead of the legislative branch. These were attempts to prevent the legislative branch, from doing its job under its sole constitutional authority, to make law and to “provide for the common defense.” This was an infringement of the right to self-govern. But Franklin’s quote shows, “Liberty” and “Safety” are, aligned. We cannot have one without the other–

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

The application of Liberty and Security is, another way to arm and disarm.

“On every occasion [of Constitutional application] let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying [to force] what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, [instead let us] conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” 

Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, 12 June 1823

Training and preparation is, another way to arm and disarm.

“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country.”

James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434, June 8, 1789

The history of application, and education with preparation and training is, another way to arm and disarm.

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.”

William Pitt (the Younger), Speech in the House of Commons, November 18, 1783

Our government could be considered as notorious, infamous, or having a proclivity (tendency), to use some crisis, some national state of emergency (real or imagined), to infringe our right, to secure our rights. A nervous populous may consider giving up some or all of our rights, in exchange for “safety” or some good-will cause. In its basic form, this is infringement and brought to bear by fear. WE need to see this, understand it and overcome fear, by the history of application, and education with preparation and training with “arms”. To arm responsibly is, the ONLY responsible way, to arm and disarm. It is the first law of nature (Laws of Nature or Nature’s God).

“This may be considered as the true palladium(2) of liberty…. The right of self defense is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.”

St. George Tucker, Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England, 1803

(2) Palladium is both an interesting and an excellent word choice by Tucker. Lets first look to its origin.  It is from the Greek word Palládion, noun use of neuter of Palládios of Pallas, equivalent to Pallad- (stem of Pallás) Pallas + -ios adj. Suffix. It is named after the epithet of the Greek goddess Athena, acquired by her when she slew Pallas. It was also, a statue of Athena, especially one on the citadel of Troy on which the safety (secure, security), of the city was supposed to depend. Palladium is also, a chemical element with symbol Pd and atomic number 46. It is a rare and lustrous silvery-white metal, discovered in 1803 by William Hyde Wollaston. He named it after the asteroid Pallas, which was itself named after the epithet of the Greek goddess Athena. On the MOH scale (measures weight from 1-7), platinum is rated at a 4 and palladium, a 5. When alloyed (armed), platinum goes up to a 4.5 and palladium to a 5.75. Just to give you some context as to what these numbers mean, the bottom of the scale is talc and at the top is diamond. Your finger nail would rate at 2.5, the same hardness as pure gold or pure silver. Stainless steel is a 6 and a diamond is 7. Perhaps Tucker knew of this discovery in 1803 when he wrote the text above? Perhaps he did not? To which ever application (“living” law) he was referring to, secure, security is, “organic” law!

Returning now, this last time here, to the second amendment, know this– our individual right to secure our rights, existed long before our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and our Bill of Rights, (the first ten amendments), were ever written. In truth, this right has always existed, for as long as people, have populated this planet. They were written (“organic” law), so that we could apply (“living” law), to secure the Blessings of Liberty.

“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.”

Preamble to the Constitution

Note the words, “SECURE the Blessings of Liberty”!

There can be no Blessings of Liberty without Security!

Any sovereign state, sovereign nation, sovereign country (because its people are sovereign ), have the right to secure our right, to secure our rights, for only our citizens!!!! This is stated in the Preamble to our Constitution, “WE the People of the United States!”

Anyone which would propose, protest, legislate, adjudicate, execute, regulate, limit, prevent, impede, alter, change and vote against our right, to secure our rights, infringe our rights! Any such, though friend or family; immigrant (not yet a citizen), illegal alien, or anyone illegally harboring and giving sanctuary to and giving notice of pending arrests, should all be considered as, enemies of, “the Blessings of Liberty!!!

If anyone asks why anyone would want or need an AR-15, for example, an honest answer would be, it is none of their business! But the best answer is, it is your right, to secure your rights, against any enemy and even our own government.

If you or I fear the use of “arms”, remember the following words in 1933.

“So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is …fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, first inaugural address, Saturday, March 4th, 1933

Let us not be like deer in headlights. Let us not freeze when the lion roars. Preparation is, a necessity, before and if, necessity finds us ill-prepared and unarmed! If our response to disarm cannot be with equal or greater force, let us be PREPARED to be, the first to respond, to disarm and secure our right, to secure our rights!

If our response to disarm cannot be with equal or greater force, let us be PREPARED to be, the first to respond, to disarm and secure our right, to secure our rights!

Overcome fear by becoming “armed.” WE must “arm” ourselves with whatever is necessary, to secure our right, to secure our rights!

WE must “arm” ourselves with whatever is necessary, to secure our right, to secure our rights!

WE should check with our doctors to ensure that we have sufficient physical ability and the mental capacity to arm ourselves. We should take safety courses. Join safe clubs. Purchase “arms” from reputable dealers. “Arm” ourselves legally and responsibly. Join the NRA. Practice often. Teach others. Teach and show our children. Start family and neighborhood clubs and watches. Watch over others. There is strength in numbers. There is peace through strength. Be a deterrent. Stop inviting criminals and the mentally unstable in, to– our homes, businesses, places of worship, schools and etc., with foolish signs like, ‘We are, un-armed here’!

Secure your right, to secure your rights!

We must become like the signers of the Declaration of Independence and pledge to each other, “our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor”, for our individual right, to secure our rights, for ourselves and the futures of our children and the future of our republic!

Above all else remember, law (Organic and Living), is made, to inform and warn of what is lawless and to punish the lawless. It is not to punish or infringe the rights of the responsible, the law-abiding! The lawless and the mentally immature and unstable are NOT responsible. The law-abiding are responsible, they should be or WE should become, responsible! If actual or if it is a threat to infringe and if it is by evil intent, by a criminal, by our government, a mentally unstable person, an immature person, a family member, friend, associate or stranger, it is still, an infringement! They each and all are, enemies of and to, the Security of the Blessings of Liberty!

Secure your right, to secure your rights!

WE must each be or soon become, personally responsible, for ourselves and, for each other. These are the most civil, courteous, courageous, most responsible and most loving and compassionate things we can do to–

Secure your right, to secure your rights!

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

We are all and each, created equal and endowed by our Creator; not by people, not by the government, not by the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States of America or its first ten amendments! We all and each are, “endowed with certain unalienable rights that among these are– “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” These rights come from God. If you do not believe in God, then the laws of Nature or Nature’s God. Or they are just, universal!

Things equal to the same things are, equal to each other.

Secure your right, to secure these rights, to–

”Secure the Blessings of Liberty!”

A More Perfect Union

May 31, 2017

After stating the authority and the power and the origin of this Our Republic (“WE the People’), the Preamble to the Constitution sets forth its six (6), purposes or principles of Our Republic. The following is the first purpose or principle.

 

“…in Order to form a more perfect Union…”

Excerpt from: The Preamble to The Constitution of the United States of America

In order is, in contrast, to disorder. Order is, the arrangement or disposition of people or things in relation to each other, according to a particular sequence, pattern, or method. It is, an authoritative command, direction, or instruction.

to,” from the Greek preposition pros is, to, towards, or with a view towards.

form” is, the visible shape or configuration of something. It is a mold, frame, or block in or on which something is shaped.

a” as a letter of the English and the Greek alphabet (Greek- alpha), is, the first letter, a beginning.

As an article, “a” (indefinite) it is defined: One; any indefinite example of; used to denote a singular item of a group.

Note: The word “the” is NOT used which would suggest something definite as, “The United States of America.” This order was to form a beginning, something new; something in process, something in progress, and something which can be changed, improved upon, altered, amended and even eliminated if according to the authority of, WE the People, as we grow and as WE deem necessary.

more perfect?” – Can something which is perfect become more perfect or less perfect? NO it cannot! This strange usage or combinations of words should arrest our attention. Can our attention be arrested? “Arrest our attention” and our three words here, “a more perfect…” together form each, a  figure of speech. A figure of speech is a legitimate grammatical usage of words that are truer to truth than the literal statement of fact. Figures of speech are used for emphasis, to emphasize someone or something.

Have you ever heard or read, “Practice makes perfect?” But would not one have to start with perfect practice? I heard a child spokesperson for a recent adoption campaign say, “You don’t have to be a perfect person to be a perfect parent!” Do either of these two line make any literal sense whatsoever? Not without understanding figures of speech!

“In order to form a more perfect Union” is, a figure of speech. This particular figure of speech literally emphasizes the word “perfect.” Figuratively, it makes the word “perfect” truer to truth than the literal statement of fact. This figure is used as a goal to strive for, a viewpoint to ever reach for. It is NOT a final destination to be reached by such finite and imperfect people as all of humanity in this life, but a continual reaching for excellence. Only God (the laws of Nature and Natures God) is perfect and only He or it by our willingness to follow Him or its principles, His Word (or the natural law principles), and His principles can perfect us. “More pefect” removes the previous impediment of the former or first Constitution, the Articles of Confederation. It removes the inability to grow and change by removing the word “perpetual.” One cannot excel or strive for perfection, if they are locked into perpetuity of an unchanging system!

One cannot excel or strive for perfection, if they are locked into perpetuity of an unchanging system!

Union” – Union is, the state of being united or joined. The Free and Independent States united, to “form a more perfect Union.” This is referring to the former or our first Constitution, ‘Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union Between the States of…[list of the 13 states which signed the document on 11/15/1777 and ratified 3/1/1781]’

When the greater came (This Constitution on March 4th, 1789), the former (Articles of Confederation), the lesser was terminated.

The new Constitution was believed to be “a more perfect Union,” better, with its ability to reach towards a more worthy endeavor and to secure and protect and defend the individual’s God-given unalienable rights such as, “Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!”

In conclusion, please note that this preamble and this constitution omits the word “perpetual” which was part of the Articles of Confederation. If something is perpetual, it continues. It was and remains the ever pursuit of excellence or Our lifelong journey in always seeking to excel. This constitution was NOT intended to be necessarily “perpetual,” but to grow as WE the People grow and deem it necessary to change or abolish it and therefore, it was envisioned as a continual pursuit towards, “a more perfect Union,” among us, WE the People.

“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.”

This September 17, 2017, We will celebrate the 230th birthday of the signing of, Our Constitution. Whether WE are history buffs or not, most will know the following quotes:

“WE hold these truths…”

excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence July 4th, 1776

&

“WE the People…”

excerpt from: The Constitution of the United States of America, Signed, September 17th, 1787

These two documents represent our founding. The first, declaratory of such things as equality and unalienable rights and etc. Those signing, represented the People of the thirteen colonies which were declaring their god-given right to be free and independent states. Please note, no court in our country recognizes this as a legal document which has no standing and no state, according to, Our supposed-to-be-serving US, judicial branch. But that is WRONG! The same WE that held those “truths” are the same “WE the People” in the Preamble to Our Constitution, and the same “WE the People” of, The United States of America today. But please note again, no court in our country recognizes the Preamble as having any force or effect in legal matters as pertaining to Our Constitution. And again, that is, WRONG, so very, very, WRONG!

There is a familiar expression that those who live under a monarchy either in ceremonial or actual power understand. It was familiar in the times of King James, the namesake of the authorized King James Version of the Bible, in 1611. It was familiar to and in the writings of, a contemporary then, William Shakespeare. And it was familiar to King George of Great Britain in, 1776 and to our founders. The phrase was and may still be used today, “WE the King” (or Queen or other ruling monarch), “of England” (or other kingdom – rule by a monarch). These words are a figure of speech. A figure of speech is a legitimate grammatical usage of words that are truer to truth than the literal statement of fact. This figure of speech empathizes the nearest noun as its antecedent which, in this phrase, would be the word, “king.” The power of the King is emphasized by including every person and even all the property and all resources of the kingdom.

Our founders were rejecting the rule of a monarch and the dominance of any religion in their desire to be free and independent states with each individual having equal and god-given (Laws of nature and Nature’s God), rights. “WE hold these truths” emphasizes the signers of the Declaration that behind them is, all of the people and all the property and all the resources of the thirteen colonies and not just their pledge of their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor, but all of Ours too! “WE hold these truths,” was then and is now, in direct opposition of and in contrast to the words, the meaning and the monarch of, “WE the King!”

“WE hold these truths” in essence is, repeated and made specific in Our Constitution in the opening of its (Our) Preamble, “WE the People!” “WE the People” emphasizes all of the people and the property and all of the resources of the Free and Independent States of 1787 and not just the signers of the Constitution of the United States of America. “WE the People” was then and still are, in direct opposition of and in contrast to the words, “WE the King,” the meaning and the rule of any monarch, even a democracy (rule by majority) or any of the three branches of Our government, THEN and still TODAY!

“WE the People” are, the authors, the writers, the signers, the power and the authority and hold original jurisdiction over all our property and all of Our resources, Our Constitution, and Our Republic. “WE the People,” are, the rule of Law (the Republic), the Law of the Land! Never, Ever forget this!! WE made the government to serve US! We do NOT serve the government!

So, in preparation of the signing of Our Constitution’s 230th Birthday, September 17, 2017, How about baking a cake?! 🙂

“Nature’s God”

May 15, 2017

A friend of mine recently said, “I can’t seem to find any reference to Nature’s God prior to the time of Thomas Jefferson. I’m trying to figure out exactly what he meant by that term and where he picked up the concept.”

The words, “the Laws of Nature” and “Nature’s God,” appear in our founding document, The Declaration of Independence, in 1776.

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

Opening of: The Declaration of Independence, 1776, 1st paragraph

The idea that the United States of America is a, “Christian Nation,” has been argued since likely, our beginning in the years which led up to 1776 and ever since. You might be surprised as to its true origins?

We know from basic U.S. history that Thomas Jefferson (one of the youngest, if not the youngest earliest representatives to the 1776 body, The Continental Congress and other patriots), was tasked with the writing of, The Declaration of Independence. It was so because of his skill with language. But even so, it may be understood that there was one writer, but many authors. This is clearly seen in the opening of the second paragraph of ‘The Declaration,’ We hold these truths…”

Let us examine the writer, Thomas Jefferson.

Thomas Jefferson was basically a deist, although the term in his day had negative connotations such as being heretical or being an atheist. As revolutionary as it was to revolt against their mother country, their king ordained by supposed divine right, the greatest standing military and naval force of the times, words such as “the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and nature’s God entitle them,” were just as revolutionary!

Thomas Jefferson lived during the ‘Age of Enlightenment’ 1715-1789. In France, the central doctrines of the French worded, les Lumières (the lights), were individual liberty and religious tolerance in opposition to an absolute monarchy and the fixed dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church or of any one church, for that matter. The Age of Enlightenment was marked by an emphasis on the scientific method and reductionism along with increased questioning of religious orthodoxy—an attitude captured by the Latin words, Sapere aude, “Dare to know.”

Reductionism is the theory of reducing complex data down to its basic elements to understand and apply that knowledge. An example of reductionism may be better understood from the Bible?

“Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:”

I Corinthians 10:32 KJV

Whereas we may view the complexities of humanity with its many races and variations, according to what we just read, the God of the Bible reduces this complex data down to there being just 3— Jew, Gentile or the Church of God (which is made up of both Jew and Gentile).

Jefferson also lived during the ‘Age of Reason.’ It follows in the tradition of eighteenth-century British deism, and challenges institutionalized religion and the legitimacy of the Bible. It was published in three parts in 1794, 1795, and 1807. Jefferson died in 1826, but these two ages” shaped his thinking and that of our other founders and their manner of life. When Jefferson wrote our founding document, The Declaration of Independence, agreed to by all the signers of all 13 colonies, he and our founders, believed in a creator whom created all equal and endowed them with certain unalienable rights. Some of the signers were Christian and some held other beliefs. Jefferson’s belief in God the creator was not revelatory. He did not believe in miracles. He believed in the value of the moral code of Jesus, but not necessarily that he was God’s Messiah. God, Jefferson believed, was known or could be known by design in the laws of life, hence, “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.” He believed in ethics and morals and science and reason and he believed this is how the creator was made known. This was believed possible by exercising the Latin term, Sapere aude, “Dare to know.”

“Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.”

Thomas Jefferson

It was believed that this was not only the right of all to know, but the responsibility of all, in order to realize and live them – “We hold these truths.” But where did such ideas come from?

“The ideas that inspired them [our original founders] were neither British nor Christian, but largely ancient, pagan, and continental:”

excerpt from a description of: ‘Nature’s God,’ The Heretical Origins of the American Republic, by Matthew Stuart © 2014

Now this is interesting and it may or may not have been the origin of Jefferson’s belief and even it were the belief of every other signer of ‘The Declaration,’ it is, Christian, in that it is written in the Bible and specifically, in the New Testament and even more specific, in the first doctrinal (how to believe rightly) epistle, to the Church, the Book of Romans.

Please note: All scripture references from the Bible herein are from, The King James Version, KJV.

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
“Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Romans 1:18-20 KJV

Without controversy, those three verses basically describe, “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.” Now lets look at more of this chapter to see in contrast to “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” what the God of the Bible (His revelation of Himself) has to say.

1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel
[good news] of God,
2 (Which he [God] had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)
3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
5 By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
6 Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:
7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith [Greek pistis believing] is spoken of throughout the whole world.
13 Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.
14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.
15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. [Greek pistis believing, a verb which connotes action or if you will, the exercise of the right to, the Latin term, Sapere aude, “Dare to know.”].”
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [shown] it unto them.”
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature [created thing] more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Romans 1:1-8, 13-25 KJV

Whether you or I believe as did Jefferson or in any of the beliefs of our original founders is not what is most important. For one thing, they believed that equality was created in all and rights were given to all by the creator, the “Laws of Nature” and “Nature’s God.” There is no contradiction if you believe God is made known by nature or revealed by His Word, the Bible, Himself the Word or His namesake and only begotten son, Jesus Christ the Word. These all agree. They conciliate in The Declaration of Independence. It is concluded in, The Declaration of Independence. There is no contradiction that our Republic is indeed, based on Judeo-Christian principles. Even if one is an atheist, and believes in the theory of evolution (the big bang theory), there is no contradiction because, equality and rights are a gift of this life force, “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God, a “creator,” a design and etc. otherwise, there is no equality and no rights, only inequality and privileges. Look at the final sentence in The Declaration.

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

Except from: The Declaration of Independence, 1776, last sentence

This ‘Declaration’ of equality and rights from “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” which relies on “Divine Providence,” the creator, is equal to and…

…as The Declaration is Declaratory of “Nature’s God,” so are the heavens

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth [shows] his handywork.”

Psalm 19:1 KJV

Thomas Jefferson, our founders and our founding documents were not anti-God or atheists. All were anti-divine right and anti-religion. From since the fall of Adam and Eve in the first book of the Bible, Genesis, our species have tried to dominate by force of arms or religious dogma. They have tried to un-separate or conciliate (bring together), Church and State. Kings, Queens, emperors and etc. from ancient times, were thought of as gods or as God’s representatives on earth. This is called, “divine right” and may be thought of by expressing— rule from the throne. The church and specifically, the Roman Catholic Church, uses a Latin phrase, ex cathedra “from the seat of authority” or simply, “from the chair.” I like to think of that as, from the toilet because, it is just crap. 🙂

There is one problem with this concept, Biblically.

”When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?  And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter [Greek petros, a small grain-like stone that can be blown about, with every wind of doctrine], and upon this rock [Greek petra, a large unmovable rock or stone] I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

Matthew 16:13-20 KJV

In English, what this verse seems to say is that Jesus Christ would build his church upon Peter. This is the verse used to promote and substantiate the concept of apostolic succession. Please note that this verse says absolutely nothing about apostolic succession. But if you look in the Greek translation from which the King James Version came, just knowing and understanding the definition of two Greek words, this verse says something entirely different. The name Peter (petros in Greek), is very similar to his personality. One moment he was ready to die with Jesus and the next you can’t find Peter (a little grain of sand), anywhere. Jesus Christ used the word “rock” which again, is the Greek word petra, an unmovable stone. Jesus Christ simply said [my paraphrasing], Hey, look Peter, you are like a tiny grain of sand. You blow hot and cold and blow about at the whim of the wind. But on this rock (Jesus pointed to himself), I (Jesus Christ), will build my church!

So much for certain ones dominating over the church or of apostolic succession. 🙂

Throne or chair, take your pick or as it was or is, as to whomever in actuality, is in control of the rest of the population. These beliefs were rejected by Thomas Jefferson and our original founders and in our original documents.

From the throne of a king, queen, prince, princess and etc. or from the chair of a Pope or head of some other religious order, both have one thing in common, genealogy or privilege. Whether by birth or royal blood line, this “divine right” is equal to the pedigree or some spiritual association like apostolic succession. This belief was that from the line of the Apostle Peter of the Bible, all true authority of God on earth, being infallible, is thought to be the legitimate authority over all others. Thomas Jefferson, our original founders and our original documents rejected these ideas!

In their day and time, Thomas Jefferson, our original founders and our original documents were revolutionary because, they rejected the “divine right” of the king, the rule from the throne and the rule of the church (any church), “from the chair,” or the toilet. This established the concept of separation of Church and State, but certainly not, the separation of God and State. This is clearly seen in the words, “The Laws of Nature” and “Nature’s God.” As The Declaration Declares, “All men [a plural noun inclusive of all men, women and children], “are created equal…” “…that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Any religion that is contrary to these universal truths would be unequal and would be based on privileges, not rights, and the divine right of royalty or spiritual authority, based on some pedigree of even ANY moral and ethical church, from dominating the affairs of our republic. However, this would not prevent any of the “Free and Independent States,” by “consent of the governed,” of that state, from having a state religion. But among the other states, their state religion would not/could not prevent the rights of any other state or any other individual. But the United States, interdependent, would not/could not have either a dominating governing force (see checks and balances in the Constitution of the United States), or religious force.

“The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” clearly declares that we are all created equal and are all endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights. And though it does not declare whom this God is, whether by what is known from the study of these universal laws (Sapere aude “dare to know”), or what is revealed, it does not prevent God, a creator from revealing its self (male or female) in its manner and provides for, the Freedom of religion which includes, the truth! In other words, religious freedom or religious liberty, allows anyone to worship or not, as they deem appropriate, as long as, their liberty and their rights, do not prevent those of any others.

In 2015, Chris Cuomo, a lawyer, son of Mario Cuomo (former NY governor a Democrat candidate for president), brother to Andrew Cuomo, the current governor of the state of New York, is a paid contributor and host at CNN. He interviewed the then Alabama Chief Supreme Court judge, his honor, Roy Moore. The following picture is a quote from that interview.

Our rights do not come from God?

Cuomo is lecturing a Supreme Court judge, the Chief Justice at the time, of the State of Alabama and addresses him with an air of respect in calling him, “your honor.” But the insulted Chief Justice, respectfully, did not agree with Cuomo. In contrast and in direct contradiction to Cuomo, this is what the writer of The Declaration, Thomas Jefferson said,

Our Equality and Our Rights come from God!

Does it matter if Jefferson was a deist, a Jew or a Christian? No it does not. Does it matter if any of our founders were deist, Jewish or Christian? No it does not. Does it matter if any were Jew, Gentile or Church of God? No it does not. Does it matter if our original founding documents were based on ancient, pagan, continental, desist, Jewish or Christian principles? No it does not. “Nature’s God,” in concept or in reality is not contradictory, but is conciliatory. Our equality and our rights do not come from man, mankind, humanity, collective agreement or compromise, but from, “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” from the creator, however you freely choose to believe in one. What really matters is not what we may or may not believe, but that “Nature’s God” gifted us with equality and rights!

“Nature’s God” allows for the free choice, or religious freedom or religious liberty, to believe as one sees fit, provided that it is ethical, moral, is equal to all and does not prevent the rights of all, of every individual!

There are two compound words that are now, much easier to understand, inspiration and enthusiasm. Inspiration is made up of in + spirit or in spirit action. Enthusiasm is made of the Greek preposition en meaning, totally within as opposed to, from without and the Greek word theo, which is, God. Combined, its meaning is, in totality or wholly within God, the origin or power of God. “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” are equal to a “creator,” all people being “created equal,” and the “endowment” “of certain unalienable rights.” Things equal to the same thing, are equal to each other!

In conclusion, “Nature’s God” are words written in our original declaratory founding document, The Declaration of Independence. Though equality and individual rights are inclusive or universal, they are written and authored by Free and Independent States that have the right to govern their own affairs, as does any other Free and Independent State or country. We have the right to allow in or remove anyone or anything which is contrary to universal rights and the privileges of citizenship we hold together, as Free and Independent States! And we also, have the responsibility of both now and in the future, to prevent anyone or anything from dominating our republic and any church from dominating our United States, religious liberty.

If these things were not so, there would be only inequality and privileges; no equality and no rights! “Nature’s God” is, the origin of equality and of our rights. And this equality and these rights did not come by humanity, but by the creator and these rights can therefore, not be bought, sold, bartered, traded, surrendered or taken by force from anyone, by anyone or anything, under any circumstances! The Constitution of the United States is the second, but equal part to our republic. Whereas The Declaration declares the origin of our equality and our rights, the Constitution is, for the defense and protection of this equality and these universal rights and our “collective agreement and compromise,” as to our privileges as citizens and how this republic is to be served— of the people, by the people,  for the people and to the people! And this is the responsibility of every one of us, to protect and defend against all enemies, foreign or domestic!

Unalienable or Inalienable

April 19, 2017

short url to this post: http://wp.me/pGfx1-A4

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” 

The Declaration of Independence, July 4th, 1776, 2nd paragraph

 

Does it matter if your rights are unalienable, inalienable or alienable? Many have no idea what these words truly mean in context of what was written in the Declaration of Independence. Look at the article from the following link.

https://fee.org/articles/why-it-matters-that-some-rights-are-inalienable/

Although the link above is an interesting read (and I did read it word for word), it fails to use the word as written, in the familiar clause of the Declaration of Independence. That word is, “unalienable” and not “inalienable” as used in the title of the afore mentioned and linked article. It fails to define the word “unalienable” and like our rights, it cannot be separated from the source from which they are derived which is, “their [our] creator,’ God. And finally, the article fails in that it does not show original intent of our founders that authored it (WE the People are the authors), and written by, Thomas Jefferson, one among us, WE the People.

Our founders, many of which were from England and influenced by the work of John Locke, English jurisprudence (English Law) and were familiar with the words “inalienable” and “alienable” as they relate to property rights, to rights of property. But this was not, absolutely not, what their intentions were, in the Declaration of Independence or how the words were used, in the context of this document. “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness,” are certainly not referring to mere property rights.

Very, very simply, the words “unalienable” or “inalienable,” which as defined in most any dictionary are, exactly the same. Both can be understood by the root word, “alien.” Basically, something or someone that is “alien” or is, an “alien” is, foreign or just not from here. What separates us from any other foreigner or alien? These “truths” were written down, put into and left, in our founding documents. It is a record. It was recorded. It is a recording and like a sound recording, is considered more permanent than having to rely on the fragility of memory which is prone to leave out, put in or change things over time. Let me say that again in another way. The only thing that makes us UN-aliens any different from any other alien outside of this country is that we put our rights into writing. They are the laws of our republic. We are all aliens, but our rights are unalienable and are given by “their [our] creator,” God. If they are given by people, they are not rights, but privileges and could be bought, sold, given away or forcibly taken. They would be then, alienable privileges, but they are not. One cannot separate another from their unalienable rights, any more than they can separate the source of Him, “their [our] creator,” God that gave them, gives them freely to all, for all are, “created equal!”

Having written those things, I will leave a link below, which digs into the depth of these two words, “unalienable” and “inalienable.” Even though they are defined the same in a dictionary today, were both understood as the same in the 18th century and there were even drafts of the Declaration of Independence that used the word “inalienable,” before the final document which used, “unalienable,” most courts, corporations, and even state constitutions, only recognize inalienable rights. According to their interpretation, those rights are separate from unalienable rights and can be transferred with your permission or without it if, the court, corporation, and/or state decides it so. This is a perversion, an interpretation, a corruption; a usurpation of our unalienable rights, given freely by “their [our] creator,” God, for those rights cannot be bought, sold, bartered, transferred or taken away, with or without our permission! Why not? Because we are all aliens or foreigners in a strange land. We are pilgrims. We are just passing through. We and our unalienable rights will all one day, return to the source that gave them, “their [our] creator,” God.

Understanding of these things is of paramount importance! In addition to separating the words “unalienable” and “inalienable,” though they are defined as the same, there are those which believe the Declaration of Independence, has no place in our government nor standing, in any court of Law. There are those which believe that the preamble to our Constitution, has no place or standing, in any court of law.

The We that hold “these truths” are, the same WE behind, “We the People.”

The “We” that hold “these truths” are, the same WE behind, “We the People.” The Declaration of Independence cannot be separated from, The Constitution of the United States of America. And the preamble to the same, cannot be separated from the document including, the ‘Bill of Rights.’

To separate unalienable from inalienable, seeks to separate rights from “their [our] creator,’ God, whom gave them, from  “their [our] creator,’ God, God, being just a figure of speech, a legal fiction when in fact, it is humans (governments) that give us those rights (privileges) and can therefore, take them away? As no one can separate the Preamble from the Constitution from or the Bill of Rights, no one can separate the Constitution (a more perfect union) from, the Bill of Rights, all which are given limited power by consent of the people, to protect the rights of the People. And no one can separate the Constitution (the protector of these rights) from the Declaration of Independence (the declarer of those rights and from whence those rights have come (“their [our] creator,” God.

There are those that believe we are a democracy (rule by majority) as opposed to a republic (rule by law, a representative government). There are those that believe the electoral college should be eliminated and presidential elections should be decided by popular vote. Popular vote is, democracy, rule by majority. This is not the same thing as a republic, the rule by law, a representative government.

Nothing could be more clear in understanding the failures of democracy and the intent of the republic, than a map of the United States showing by county and by colors red or blue from the national election, November 8th, 2016. The popular vote (majority of votes) is in blue and the electoral college votes, in red.

The popular (majority) vote is in blue and the electoral college votes are in red

 

Votes from the areas in blue above show both where the majority of the votes were received and are where the majority of the people live in the USA. But it is obvious that not everyone lives in the blue areas. To control the government in this manner, all one needs to do is to receive the majority of the votes from where the majority of the people live. Now I ask you, which color (blue or red) truly is more representative of the United States? If you ca see red, then this is indicative of a republic, a representative government in action and our founders original intent. If you still desire the blue, a majority, a democracy, this was not our founders intent and you should seek to legally amend our Constitution.

There are those which believe as the times have changed, even our Constitution is subject to change. The Constitution may be amended, but it cannot be changed. We the people have the right to:

“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

Excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence, July 4th, 1776.

Separating unalienable and inalienable is to separate rights of all to the priviledges of the few. Separating the Bill of Rights from the Constitution, the Constitution from the Preamble, The Constitution from The Declaration of Independence, rights from “the [our] creator,” God, reduces all to a democracy instead of a republic and robs every man woman and child from their equal rights that among these are, “Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” These are all very dangerous ideas. It is only WE the People which consent to those powers which government may by only specified limits, execute on our behalf. We the People have those rights because, WE the People are all and each, equally endowed by “their [our] creator,” God, whom gave us these rights! These rights which cannot be bought, sold, bartered, transferred or taken by force, with or without our permission! Government is neither an individual or a person (corporation), it is just a servant, our servant, the servant of WE the People.  Government’s sole function is, to protect and defend our unalienable rights from all enemies, foreign (alien) or domestic (from within us).

Are WE on the Verge of the Second, American Revolution?

I am writing to you and particularly, to all those like me, that have not yet voted, in the upcoming election, on November 8, 2016.

To begin, please forgive me in taking this one liberty, in assuming you know at least something, about the American Revolution, which began officially in writing The Declaration of Independence, signed July 2nd and published July 4th, 1776. What I would like you to take from this is, that every person signing, were guilty of treason. They mutually pledged their fortunes, their sacred honor and their lives. They broke the law to protect and defend the law of God-given equality and unalienable rights!

Now, here we are in 2016, just days before the election on November 8th. Is this more, much more, than just an end finally, to the most divisive time and election of our lives? Is it a harbinger of more tumult to come, than we have ever imagined? Or are WE the People, on the verge of, the Second American Revolution, for the life of our fragile Republic?

Surely, you must be tired of this whole thing like I am and cannot wait, for it to be over and to get on with our lives, in whatever state we may find them, after this damnable or wrecking ball to restore, this THING, is over!

By now, most everyone knows that the Clinton e-mail scandal ended last July, with the findings that there was no ‘intent’ and no recommendation from the FBI, for the Justice Department to prosecute. The FBI’s director’s boss, the Attorney General, for the United States, accepted the recommendation. About half of the country were pleased and the other half were not.

The two candidates seeking the office of president continued to accuse one another and present their plans to their supporters. Donald J. Trump, accused Hillary Clinton of being “crooked’ and that the whole system was “rigged.” Clinton responded in kind, with her or her supporter’s accusations. Every day and night, mainstream media at least, had lots to talk about and their ratings soared  and their advertisers were pleased, I guess? At least many people were tuning in, to this circus and their products and services were being seen. Follow the money.

WkiLeaks started releasing a lot of incriminating emails. Their authenticity was NOT denied. Instead, the Clinton campaign accused Trump of working with the Russians to influence the election. Then, the Clinton Campaign directly accused the Russians of hacking the emails, giving them to WikiLeaks and all, to influence the election. WikiLeaks countered, that it was impossible. Just remember that WikiLeaks showed, it was, “impossible.”

Two days before Halloween, on October 28, 2016, FBI director James Comey sent a letter to some members of the House of Representatives, indicating that new information had led them to review, the Clinton email case. This letter in full, was copied and leaked. Almost immediately, the word “review” was interpreted to, “re-opening” the case.

Next, Director Comey was accused in trying to influence the election. Many that previously (just the previous July) who had praised his decision then, now accused him of breaking the law and in trying to influence the election.

A few days later, it was leaked that on a laptop, jointly shared by Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin and her estranged husband, Anthony Wiener, some 650,000 emails discovered. This is significant as, Abedin had told the FBI that she had released all her files and emails to them previously. It was leaked that she did not know they were still on this laptop and that she had previously forwarded all her files to her Yahoo account, to make them easier to print and that she had previously saved them to help in preparing a book for Hillary Clinton, sometime in the future. She told the FBI that she did not know all these files had been backed up on this laptop. She has disappeared from Clinton’s side, ever since. She and her husband are most likely, looking to make some kind of deal with the FBI and/or seeking legal council. It has been leaked that the contents of this laptop contains a treasure trove of information, which may contain classified material and new material, not previously viewed by the FBI. Her estranged husband’s legal issues go beyond this to an actual investigation into his possible, pedophilia. That’s what it is, not merely just sex-ing as the media has said. It is a very serious matter, for both of them and perhaps Clinton as well? There are deeply concerned members of many federal agents that believe, FBI director Comey, has not handled these investigations correctly. Yes, there is deep division among the agencies of all across the government! All of theses things have been leaked and are not disputed. What is disputed however is, whether or not it is all a conspiracy by one party or the other, to influence the outcome of this election. Everyone seems to e leakin g, accusing and blaming each other.

Over forty states have asked the Federal government, for help in possible fraud of the polling places, in every single state. This is your first assignment, to look that up as well as a— “master key” which exists, in the software, which can change the results of each polling place!

There are several states which allow voters to change their votes and Wisconsin allows them to change their votes three times. Look that up and for how many people who have already voted which now are, wanting to change their votes. If possible, go and change your vote if necessary. Trust me, your vote is, NECESSARY!

Look at the lead from polls, in both the popular vote and electoral vote estimates, for Hillary Clinton, just a few short days ago. Her lead was supposedly unbeatable and Donald Trump had already lost. Look at the polls most recently. Trump is either ahead and in places he was NOT supposed to be or at least the race is now, very, very tight. A few % points is one thing, but her popular vote lead was double digits and her expected electoral votes, around 333 or 63 votes more, than the 270, needed to win the presidency. What has changed in just a few short days? Was this all hype on the part of her campaign and the media? Did this many people, actually change their minds in just 3-4 days? Or, is there something else going on?

Hang on, we are just getting started!

I would like to offer a video. Please disregard the publisher’s title of this:

‘5 Minute Speech that Got Judge Napolitano Fired from Fox News.’

He was never fired! It is not true! Watch the video, which was most likely posted or copied from the original broadcast. Then, read the Judge’s comment about this program being canceled. He was not fired, because of, the content.

https://youtu.be/UgGnBCDfCLM

“In television, shows are cancelled all the time. Two of my former shows have been cancelled, and after each cancellation, Fox has rewarded me with more and better work. This cancellation—along with others that accompanied it—was the result of a business judgment here, and is completely unrelated to the FreedomWatch message. It would make a world of a difference for all of us, if you would KINDLY STOP SENDING EMAILS TO FOX. I am well. Your values are strong. I will continue to articulate those values here at Fox. But the emails many of you are sending are unfairly interfering with my work and that of my colleagues here. The emails even violate our values because they interfere with the use of private property. I have accepted the cancellation decision with good cheer and a sense of gearing up for the future. You should as well.
As a favor to me, and as I have asked this past weekend, PLEASE STOP SENDING EMAILS TO MY COLLEAGUES AT FOX ABOUT THE CANCELLATION OF Freedom Watch; and please stop NOW.”

Judge Andrew Napolitano, in response to his program ‘Freedom Watch’
being canceled on Fox News, in 2014

This video again, was from TWO YEARS AGO. How timely! How insightful! It is almost prophetic, as to the present time! This next video was published, on August 4th, 2016.

The NSA leaking to WikiLeaks? Remember how this began, in 1776? They broke the law to protect and defend the law! Is this the Second, American Revolution? WE haven’t seen anything yet!

Whatever is happening, something big is, underway.

I realize I have asked you to look up certain things. I want you to see for yourself. These things cannot be found in the mainstream media. Social Media is barely starting, to scratch the surface. Use the skills you were taught in grade school, how to look things up. Because, this information is so fluid, and changes so quickly! You have to look for it online, on the Internet.

Look up the following word: coup d’é•tat

One of these was recently attempted by the military in Turkey, not too long ago. What if, a coup d’é•tat was attempted the last few days, in our own country, without the military, but entirely on the Internet? Is its massive corruption covered up, by its massive co-option of the many interrelated, crony associations which may be complicit in this corruption, one way or another? Are some people starting to bail in hopes of protecting themselves from the avalanche that is about to come? Barack Obama, Michele Obama and Elizabeth Warren have all, stopped following Hilary Clinton, on Twitter, just within the last couple of days. Look that up.

What if at the same time, a counter- coup d’é•tat was also conducted on the Internet, by those in intelligence agencies that are (ongoing) breaking the law to protect and defend the law?

Now, look up the following name: Steve Pieczenik

Look first, at his bio. Now look, for any videos associated with him and recently, as of November 1st, 2016. Is he crazy? Is this man just part of another conspiracy theory? Or is he but a spokesperson, for a group of people in the NSA, CIA, FBI, NYPD (New York Police Department), Military Intelligence and other federal agencies that are willing to break the law, in order to protect and defend the law? Is this the Second, American Revolution?

For sure, there has never been anything like this, in our short 200+ years, as a representative republic! Is this or is this about to be, a Constitutional Crisis? Look that up. What do those words mean, “Constitutional Crisis?”

If WE the People are divided (and we are), is it any great thing to think that the very government which most of all of us do NOT trust, are not divided too? Is our dividing away from one another due to party, person and opinions formed, by a lot of misinformation coming from the government and the media? But the division within our government if the dual- coup d’é•tat is true, one is to cover it up and the other is to reveal it!

I realize that this all sounds so incredibly fantastic, as a work of fiction. American author Mark Twain (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910) once wrote:

“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because
Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.”

Mark Twain

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
And ye shall [absolutely] know the truth, and the truth shall [absolutely] make you free.”

The Bible, John 8:31, 32

Our founders had the fear and threat of the unknown. They persevered, for the hope of something better. We have their history of what they wrought, what republic left they gave us and the responsibility to VOTE, for its continuance! Do WE really know what the meesage of our Republic is? If we do, do WE not also, have the responsibility to protect and defend the messengers of our Republic? Keep digging, this is a whole lot more than just two people running for president. It could be the end or, the beginning of, The Second, American Revolution!

Are there true patriots which are actually, breaking the law to save our fragile republic? Will WE the People, VOTE to continue this republic of, by and for the people?

Vote! Pray! Pray for yourself! Pray for me! Pray for the true messengers! Pray for the United States of America!!!

AsEyeSeeIt

I implore you to share this everywhere!

Class Action Lawsuit

July 8, 2016

ClassAction2

If pure law was made to protect the law-abiding (and it was) and not the lawless (and it wasn’t), why does it seem that the law-abiding are punished (and they often are) and the lawless get off FREE, (and they often do)? What is the problem? Is it the law or is it the lawyers? You can answer that for yourself.

But whether you intend to break the law (have criminal intent) or just break it because you are ignorant, unknowing or just incompetent, does this mean there should be little or no consequence? And please do not use the Bill Clinton (lawyer) response, “That it depends on what is, is.”

Dotting all the i’s and crossing all the t’s might be useful (but not necessarily, necessary to understand, in writing sentences and reading them, but it appears to be absolutely necessary; a requirement in legal terms, as is punctuation, capital letters or not, certain words, keywords, and all kinds of extraneous and a superfluity of bullshite loopholes. Lawyers make these legal terms or direct them.

I can certainly understand that punishment for ‘intent’ would be greater than the punishment, for just breaking the law, but because ‘intent’ has not been proven beyond a reasonable doubt, does not or should not mean that no charges are filed, there should not be a jury, or a grand jury, or judge only, should NOT hear the case, try the case and judge that consequences of breaking the law applies, convict if proven guilty and mete out a just punishment, swiftly!!!!

“Justice delayed is justice denied”

The quote above is a legal maxim— an established principle or proposition. Just like lawyers, and congress and government in general can’t agree on much of anything, no one seems to agree on where this quote came from either.

‘Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations, attributes it to William Ewart Gladstone, but it CANNOT be verified.

Some believe it was first used by William Penn in the form of, “to delay Justice is Injustice,” according to:

‘Penn, William (1693), ‘Some Fruits of Solitude, Headley, 1905, p. 86.

Mentions of ‘justice delayed and denied’ are found in the Pirkei Avot 5:7, a section of the Mishnah (1st century BCE – 2nd century CE): “Our Rabbis taught: …

“The sword comes into the world, because of justice delayed and justice denied…,”

10 Minutes of Torah. Ethical Teachings Selections’ from Pirkei Avot.
http://tmt.urj.net/archives/4jewishethics/052605.htm

The Magna Carta of 1215, clause 40 reads, “To no one will we sell, to no one will we refuse or delay, right or justice.”

Martin Luther King, Jr., used the phrase in the form, “Justice too long delayed is justice denied,” in his “Letter from Birmingham Jail”, smuggled out of jail in 1963, ascribing it to a “distinguished jurist of yesteryear”.

Chief Justice of the United States, Warren E. Burger noted in an address to the American Bar Association in 1970:

“A sense of confidence in the courts is essential to maintain the fabric of ordered liberty for a free people and three things could destroy that confidence and do incalculable damage to society: that people come to believe that inefficiency and delay will drain even a just judgment of its value; that people who have long been exploited in the smaller transactions of daily life come to believe that courts cannot vindicate their legal rights from fraud and over-reaching; that people come to believe the law – in the larger sense – cannot fulfill its primary function to protect them and their families in their homes, at their work, and on the public streets.

Burger, “What’s Wrong With the Courts: The Chief Justice Speaks Out”, U.S. News & World Report (vol. 69, No. 8, Aug. 24, 1970) 68, 71 (address to ABA meeting, Aug. 10, 1970).

The courts are made up of judges and judges are first, lawyers. Lawyers graduate from law schools. Law schools are supposed to teach law and many of the professors may be lawyers or former lawyers that also, graduated from some law school. Sometimes, presidents are lawyers or have a law background. Congress has many former lawyers. The supreme court judges are all, first and foremost, lawyers. The entire government is riddled with lawyers.

Our biggest problem is not with the law per se, it is with the lawyers or the executives, legislators and the judiciary that make the laws, enforce or not enforce them and are more prone to NOT seek justice, but to win their cases, make their arguments, profit from them, protect themselves and their profession; their intuitions of law, and rather than protecting the innocent, they protect the lawless. Loopholes and interpretations, legislating from the bench and not whether one is guilty or not, but what can be proved is, their training and their focus.

No matter what side you may be on with the latest FBI conclusion that no criminal charges against the former Secretary of State and presumptive Democrat nominee for president of the United States, Hilary Clinton, with her mishandling of classified material and the Justice Department accepting that recommendation and no criminal charges will be filed, it’s not the law which is troubling, but the lawyers that wrote, write, interpret, defend or prosecute them, apparently at their discretion and their benefit.

If this is purely political theater (as was said by those who seek to keep this matter going), the Republican Party response seems to go to yet another law and associate it with what the FBI and the Justice Department views as, a closed case. And what law is that? Did the former secretary lie to congress, but not the FBI? But the FBI did not include that testimony in their “comprehensive” investigation. When asked why not, the Director of the FBI said that Congress had not sent them a formal request. To this the person asking said, “You will have one shortly!” So, if this continues, it could only end in a charge or charges of perjury. But perjury will be difficult to prove. The entire matter is laden with corruption and perversion. If the “careless” mishandling of classified material were not concerning on its own, as it is, the lawyers or lawyer-directed legalese that have corrupted and perverted the intent of the law, the law of the land— which is, to protect US, WE the People, from the lawless and punish  the lawless, to me is even more egregious an a threat to national security!

I will give you an example of this corruption and perversion from my own state of New York and my own personal experience.

About a year ago, I was pulled over on the ramp of an entrance to a highway. It was an obvious traffic stop, looking for drunk drivers or to see if people were wearing their seat-belts, I supposed. This was, seat-belt related. After I stopped, an officer approached me and gave me a ticket, as he was told to do, by his supervisor. His supervisor said, that he saw me NOT wearing a seatbelt and to ticket me. Now of course, I would, as most people charged with anything would say, “I’m innocent.” And it does not matter if I really was or not, as you will shortly understand. But I had two choices. I could pay whatever fine was required by my state and county and etc. or try to fight it in court. I decided to go to court.

On my court date, I was given two more choices. I was to either plead guilty and pay whatever the judge said or I could have a trial. Ooops, and I thought I was at trial and the officer would be there? Nope.

OK, I wasn’t there because I was guilty, but before I said I wasn’t, I asked the judge a question, which he allowed. “If I come to trial and plead innocent and win, will they drop all charges and any costs to me, except for my time wasted in coming to court twice? Well the judge informed me that there are no court costs, but there is an administrative fee, which I would have to pay, one way or another. Sure, label that jar of peas, peanut butter, but it’s still peas! Costs or fees, it’s still monies. That’s legalese and PC (political correctness) all rolled into one lump court cost that’s not?

So, let me see if I have this straight? Plead guilty to something I did not do. Pay whatever fine the judge decides. Points are deducted from my license. Enter a plea of guilty that become public record. My insurance most likely will go up. AND I still have to pay the (about) $100, the administrative fee? Yes. And if I go to trial and lose, I may have to pay a larger fine and the $100 administrative fee? Yes. Oh, and one more thing. The police can give me a ticket, even if they know I’ve done nothing wrong because, one way or another, I’m going to have to pay that $100! Is this messed up or what? Does this sound like extortion, racketeering and collusion to you? Is it the law or the lawyers that wrote it or directed it? Well, my prosecution rests! 🙂

WE the People, should ALL file a class action suit against the law profession?! WE the People should just sue the legal profession, sue the hell out of them! But who would do it for US? Who could WE get to represent US?????

Another maxim—

“He who represents himself has a fool for a client.”

A supposed quote by Abraham Lincoln?

This proverb is based on the opinion, probably first expressed by a lawyer, that self-representation in court is likely to end badly. As with many proverbs, it is difficult to determine a precise origin, but this expression first began appearing in print in the early 19th century. An early example comes in ‘The flowers of Wit’, or a choice collection of bon mots, by Henry Kett, 1814:

…observed the eminent lawyer, “I hesitate not to pronounce, that every man who is his own lawyer, has a fool for a client.

In the play, King Lear, by William Shakespeare, In Act I, Sc. 4, the king’s fool makes a lengthy rhyming speech, containing a great many trite, but useful moral maxims, such as:

Have more than thou showest,
Speak less than thou knowest, &c.,

The king found that testy and flat and tiresome.

Lear. This is nothing, fool.
Fool. Then, ‘tis like the breath of an unfeed lawyer: you gave me nothing for it.

Representing oneself in Latin is, acting pro se, which means, for oneself.

If WE could find among US, a lawyer(s) that could and would represent US, would they be a fool, in representing themselves as well? And their profession might think them a fool, if they dare go against them? Are WE then just shite (old English term, you figure out its current meaning) out of luck? Are WE, without representation? Are WE, without a prayer? Are WE, up a creek without a paddle? NO!

WE the People have two, to represent us— The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America. One these two documents, all the law and all the laws of the United States are supposed to be based on. The legal profession does NOT view them like that!

Regardless of what the courts might rule, the Declaration of Independence is not some past historical writing of its time and just some relic to be archived in a museum. I was then and remains a legal document, an affidavit  of fact and conclusions. In logic, it presents its factual premises (whereas) and its conclusions (therefore). It is the the foundation of Our Republic. It is Our raison d’être (reason to be). It is (WE are), The Apple of Gold in a picture of silver. It is Our Constitution which is the picture of silver, made of , by, and for WE the People, to protect, defend and preserve for ourselves and our  posterity, Our unalienable rights! The picture was made to serve US, WE the Apple of Gold, and NOT US, for the picture of silver!

Regardless of what any court might rule, the preamble to Our Constitution and the entirety of Our Constitution is relevant, essential and inseparable to the Declaration of Independence and to US, WE the People, the Apple of Gold! WE the people do have standing, and state, and original jurisdiction, to bring this case before them! Consider the following excerpts.

                                                                                                              

“The word “Unalienable” appears in one of the greatest phrases of The United States of America’s history.”

“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men [all-inclusive noun] are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Excerpt from the Declaration of Independence 1776

“The Kansas City Court of Appeals for the State of Missouri quoted verbatim the above language of 1776 with approval in Morrison v. State, 252 S.W.2d 97 (Mo. Ct. App 1952), and then went on to say (also quoting):”

Inalienable is defined as incapable of being surrendered or transferred, at least without one’s consent.”

Webster New International Dictionary, Second Ed. Vol. 2,
Page 1254. 252 S.W.2d at 101.

Unalienable: incapable of being alienated, that is, sold and transferred.”

Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, page 1523:

“You can not surrender, sell or transfer unalienable rights, they are a gift from the creator to the individual and can not under any circumstances, be surrendered or taken. All individuals have unalienable rights.”

Inalienable rights: Rights which are not capable of being surrendered or transferred without the consent of the one possessing such rights. Morrison v. State, 252 S.W.2d 97 (Mo. Ct. App. 1952).”

“You can surrender, sell or transfer inalienable rights if you consent either actually or constructively. Inalienable rights are not inherent in man and can be alienated by government. Persons (not individuals) have inalienable rights.”

“Most state constitutions recognize only inalienable rights. Here we have the so-called same defined words of unalienable and
inalienable being separated, not as the same thing, but differently and by an appellate court judge.”

“You and I may think inalienable and unalienable mean the same thing, but apparently, courts and states do not. Therefore, what is unalienable cannot be taken or transferred and relates itself to rights, and what is inalienable, could be surrendered or transferred if by consent and relates itself to privileges. Words have meaning and carry rights and results or privileges and consequences.”

“In U.S. vs. JOHNSON (76 Fed, Supp. 538), Federal District Court Judge James Alger Fee ruled that,”

“The privilege against self-incrimination is neither accorded to the passive resistant, not to the person who is ignorant of his rights, nor to one who is indifferent thereto. It is a fighting clause. Its benefits can be retained only by sustained combat. It cannot be claimed by attorney or solicitor. It is valid only when insisted upon by a belligerent claimant in person.”

McAlister vs. Henkle, 201 U. S. 90, 26 S.Ct. 385, 50 L. Ed. 671; Commonwealth vs. Shaw, 4 Cush. 594, 50 Am. Dec. 813; Orum vs. State, 38 Ohio App. 171, 175 N.E. 876.

Here again we find a federal court judge using both the words “privilege” and “rights.” From the context, this is referring to the 5th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Did you ever think that a judge would make such a ruling?”

“OUR privileges and inalienable rights could be taken or transferred, but if you or I want OUR unalienable rights protected, WE have to fight for them and become “belligerent.” WE out of necessity, to protect OUR rights, must stand in contempt of court. Words have meaning and they carry results or consequences.”

Here in the ruling is, but one example of division, or separation and in essence, an adversarial relationship.”

“If WE the People do not know OUR rights and fight for them, who will?”

Just imagine, just suppose we were able to actually get a court to hear this case. What do you think their decision would be? Yes, for themselves, the defendants! OK, so what if we get it appealed, all the way to the United States Supreme Court? What would be their decision? Would they allow US, WE the People, to RESET our Republic or rule in their favor, to keep their jobs appointed for life? Most likely to keep their job, but for US? Probably— NOT!!!!

Let’s sue the Legal Profession? Let’s bring a class action suit against the legal profession? Let US, WE the People, sue the legal profession, sue the hell out of them? Probably NOT!

Do you know why Lady Justice is blindfolded? Well, I used to believe she could see, but she blindfolded herself on purpose or purposefully, for equality; for equal justice. Now, I’m really starting to think the legal profession poked her eyes out so, she would not know the scales were being tipped (imbalanced) and the whole legal profession rigged the system, for their exclusive benefit!

ClassAction3

There must be a better way? There is! It involves bypassing the legal profession entirely, but it is legal and the legal profession must YIELD, to the authority and power of, WE the People! Another Blog post on another day. Look for, The Thirteen Coming Soon!

EqualLibertyUnequal

What is the secret of US, WE the People? If we look behind the shades, What are WE?

Here is a mathematical axiom (a self-evident truth that requires no proof). An example would be, even though we may not be able to prove that Hippocrates (the father of medicine) said, “First do no harm,” it is an axiom, a self-evident truth. Here is another axiom: “Things equal to the same thing are equal to each other.” Have you ever thought about liberty being part of a mathematical axiom?

Equality = Liberty = Inequality

How is this equal? First, equality:

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

“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.”

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Excerpts from the Declaration of Independence, 1776

This document reveals an entitlement, equal station (equality) with any other power of earth and it is by the “laws of nature and nature’s God.” This document reveals the source of rights. They are endowed by the “creator” “the laws of nature and nature’s God, and “reliance upon the protection of divine providence.” These rights “endowed by their Creator,” are “unalienable” rights, which cannot be taken, surrendered, traded, bought or sold. No one has more rights than any other and no one has less than any other! There is no difference in the quality or percentage of these rights. All have the same rights! All have the same full measure! Among these rights there is “liberty.” Equality therefore, equals Liberty. But this document also, shows the consequence of liberty which is, separation, which is inequality.

The words “men” and “mankind” may be plural nouns grammatically speaking, but it does not say women or children. This is, inequality. When these words were written, the writer and many of the signers owned slaves. Slaves were not considered by most people in the day to be people, men, women or children. They were thought to be more closely aligned with animals and like animals, property. This is certainly, inequality whether you believe slaves were people or just property. Some people did not have slaves by choice or could not afford to own them. This is inequality too.

So are the rest of the words in this document and the document itself flawed because of its inequality. Or is equality (sovereign rights) equal to liberty which is equal to inequality (not all having the same abilities)? The mathematical axiom is, ‘Things equal to the same things are equal to each other. Remember the words, “separate and equal.”

In 1777, the first Constitution (or confederation, first government form, for the United States) was, formally named, ‘the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union.’ It was connected to, ‘The Declaration,’ by the words, “To all to whom these Presents shall come…,” the word “Free and Independent States,” “good people and the words, “In the Year of Our Lord.” This was a longstanding custom to recognize “the Lord.” The same words close out ‘The Constitution’ of 1789 and ‘The Declaration,’ also.  They are all of them connected. The words “Perpetual Union,” were replaced with the 2nd Constitution of 1789, and its words, “…a more perfect union.”

Now let us look at some of the Constitution of the United States.

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.

“…done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth In witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names,…”

Excerpts from the Constitution of the United States of America, 1789

Following upon the Declaration of Independence, this Constitution connects “WE the People” of this document to the words in ‘The Declaration’ — “one people,” “them,” “we,” “all men,” “among the powers of the earth,” “mankind,” “representatives of the united States of America,” “their,” “good people of,” “these united,” “Independent states,” “Free and Independent States, “they,” and “we.”

Either the words “all men” and “mankind” are just a plural nouns, which would include all men, women and children or it is just another example of inequality. If it is a plural noun (all-inclusive), it is still, inequality. That men were considered superior, women second class and children less so equal— boys first and girls second; then slaves, is exactly what people thought and I would say, this still has a dominate stance in our present society. But all, all men and women and children the whole world over have the same equal rights and opportunity (Liberty) as WE the People do in this country. The only differences are:

1. It is in writing and it is, “the law of the land”
2. If there were no Liberty, this country or no people anywhere, could realize their full potential.

Both ‘The Declaration and ‘The Constitution are, connected to each other. There could be not the latter without the former. There would have been no revolution fought or won without recognizing “equal rights.” Without these rights fought for, there could be no Liberty. So, ‘The Declaration’ was written to declare these rights and ‘The Constitution’ was written to preserve, protect and defend these rights. Equality and inequality must be balanced by liberty!

EqualLibertyUnequal2

Where there is liberty, equality and inequality will be in balance

All men, women and children though created equal are by nature and/or opportunity unequal. WE do not all have the same or identical abilities, opportunities, experience or the will to exercise them. So this is, inequality. But WE all do, have the same potential (equal rights). Again, without rights, there can be no liberty. To exercise liberty will both increase equality and its consequence of, inequality. For this purpose was our government constructed to limit its power over the rights of WE the People. Three branches— the executive, the legislative and the judicial  were intentionally designed to have separate (unequal), but equal limited power. There is inequality in this separation of powers.

When the focus is upon what makes US unequal instead of what makes us equal, liberty wanes and inequality waxes.. So, our focus should be on what makes us all equal. It is because of this equality that WE have liberty. The consequence of liberty will always be inequality until IF or WHEN, WE all become perfect.

Homosexual rights, Transgender rights, Women’s rights, children’s rights, Animal rights, White privileges, Black rights, Hispanic rights, Religious rights and who knows the complete list of rights there could be to promote, are these one and all not focusing on the inequality? Would they even be possible to address in any other country which does NOT have equal rights and the liberty to exercise them? But focusing on the inequality increases the inequality, is divisive and serves only those that seek to profit from it by diminishing the rights and the liberty of all.

EqualLibertyUnequal3

When the focus is on inequality, the scales become out of balance

When the focus is on the individual, the scales become out of balance

When the focus is on the individual, the scales become out of balance

WE the People by Our written and published ideals, are no more perfect than any other person in the world. But our written and published form of government is the goal, “in Order to form a more perfect Union.” As it is, this perfectly imperfect form of government, devised to protect, preserve and defend the rights of all and to give liberty to all with the potential to elevate our inequality to a “more perfect” equality, has no equal in the history of the world! WE are NOT perfect, but there is no better form of government among the hearts of all, throughout the entire world, past or present. Only our Creator, can provide us with future perfection! Until IF and When such a time may exist—

Equality=Liberty=Inequality.

The mathematical axiom is, ‘Things equal to the same things are equal to each other.

Let me close this out by asking you to consider the following questions.

1. If you did not live in a country that in writing, declares that all have equal rights given to them by God, how much liberty do you think you or anyone might realize, experience; enjoy?
2. If you lived where there are no rights and no liberty to all, what would be the quality of your life?
3. If you feel unequal to anyone in this country, what do you suppose the quality of life would be like here, if you did not have equal rights and the liberty (any at all) to exercise those rights?
4. Even if you are poor here or were a slave in the past, what do you suppose the quality of life (or lack thereof) would be like, any other place that does not have written and published equal rights that among them is, liberty?

The Secret of WE, WE the PEople is the balance of Liberty in the middle of equality and inequality!

Good Afternoon USA What are WE having for Dinner?

July 1, 2016

Good Afternoon USA, what are WE having for dinner? Would it be from the melting pot, a lunchable or a salad?

Why does it seem that often our comics, dead foreigners or even hundreds-of-years old dead presidents seem to have a better grasp of what WE are than WE do? Could this be that WE have forgotten or have never been taught who and what we are?

I’m not sure, but I think the words, “The American Dream,” may be familiar to most of us and might still be used currently? I grew up with this saying. It might just mean having your own home? The apparent confusion as to who and what WE are has been around for quite some time. Years ago, way, way back in the 20th century… 🙂
…one of our comedians said:

“The owners of this country know the truth: It’s called the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it.”

George Carlin

Growing up and for as long as I can remember, WE the People have been referred to as the ‘Great Melting Pot.’ Consider the following:

WhatRWE

If we were all metals and all our individualities melted in one pot to become some new metal, this new alloy might not even be compatible. It could be weaker and not last very long.

If the melting pot were different cheeses melted together, the blend looses the distinct characteristics of each one.

If the melting pot were a soup or a stew, often it is overcooked and loses a lot of its nutritional value and its flavor.

A melting pot or ‘The Melting Pot’ is, really NOT a good description of who and what WE are nor what WE should be having for dinner.

Another current comedian thinks of US as more like:

“America as Lunchables, plastic wrapped, distinct entities thrown together, unified more by geography than conflicted cultural and political assumptions.”
.
Stephen Colbert

WhatRWE2

These may be somewhat delicious, but nutritious? Most are made by additives, over-processed, and so screwed up, vitamins and minerals have to be added back into this dead stuff, just to call it legal food, I guess? We the People remain separate and only ever get eaten together (unity or unified) if the eater so chooses. Not a very good analogy of who and what WE are supposed to be!

Well, as it happened, we had salad last night and one of our grandchildren ate with us, along with his Papa. Just like every one of US, children need to be taught what they need. Everything mixed together in a salad might be an excellent way to get kids or US to eat the whole thing, but still, we do have our favorites. This does NOT mean everything in the salad is NOT proper nutrition and a well-balanced meal, all necessary for our well-being. Think of US each as an individual piece or part of the salad. WE are unified. WE have the Liberty to eat the whole thing. Or like a child and all of us can pick and choose what we want to eat. You might like this and I might like that and a child or someone else, might like something else. So what am I saying here? A consequence of liberty could mean inequality. Inequality? But I thought –

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men [women and children] are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence, 1776

Well, WE each are equal, in the sense that WE each have the same rights and the opportunity or the Liberty, to be all that you can be individually, but only IF WE are together in this as a whole. Others have thought on something else. Like what?

“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs” is, a French slogan first used by Louis Blanc in 1851 (French: De chacun selon ses facultés, à chacun selon ses besoins;

An earlier version of the saying appeared in Étienne-Gabriel Morelly’s, ‘The Code of Nature’ in 1755. According to ‘The Code,’ “Sacred and Fundamental Laws that would tear out the roots of vice and of all the evils of a society” including:

I. Nothing in society will belong to anyone, either as a personal possession or as capital goods, except the things for which the person has immediate use, for either his needs, his pleasures, or his daily work.

II. Every citizen will be a public man, sustained by, supported by, and occupied at the public expense.

III. Every citizen will make his particular contribution to the activities of the community according to his capacity, his talent and his age; it is on this basis that his duties will be determined, in conformity with the distributive laws.

The slogan of 1851 was popularized by Karl Marx in his 1875, ‘Critique of the Gotha Program.

The principle refers to free access and distribution of goods, capital and services. In the Marxist view, such an arrangement will be made possible by the abundance of goods and services that a developed communist system will produce; the idea is that, with the full development of socialism and unfettered productive forces, there will be enough to satisfy everyone’s needs.

Marx’s statement of the creed in the ‘Critique of the Gotha Program’ is as follows:

“In a higher phase of communist society, after the enslaving subordination of the individual to the division of labor, and therewith also the antithesis between mental and physical labor, has vanished; after labor has become not only a means of life but life’s prime want; after the productive forces have also increased with the all-around development of the individual, and all the springs of co-operative wealth flow more abundantly—only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be crossed in its entirety and society inscribe on its banners: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!”

Consider the following that predates either of these two beliefs.

“And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.

Acts 4:32–35, The Bible King James Version (KJV)

This I would refer to as ‘Common Living.’ There is a HUGE difference between socialism/communism – communal living and ‘Common’ Living. But both recognize there is an inequality among us as our abilities and our needs. In socialism/communism – communal living, it is the government which decides what is taken and what is given. There is no individual. But in common living, each individual, willfully gives of their abundance and NOT out of their needs. Each individual did their best to contribute freely. Each individual determines what their needs are. Of this collected abundance, the excess was distributed to those that were also freely giving, but had lack and they were to receive according to their individual needs that there would be no lack of necessaries to anyone!

It’s like a salad!

WhatRWE3

A salad is not perfect, but it is certainly far better than a potential blah, melted pot of some new blended taste or individual kept apart lunchable, preserved and over processed and Yuk-Yak and on and on, all left to the whim of the eater’s choice. But it works far better as an illustration of who and what WE the People were supposed to be. It still allows for individual participation, according to their ability and to receive, according to their their need and would allow for choosing their favorites. Just like our grandson, we hoped he would eat the whole salad or at least more of everything good that education can provide, but he still did a little picking and choosing. 🙂

I do however believe, our grandson ate more of the individual ingredients in the salad, than he would have if just giving him the liberty to choose whatever he wanted. No matter what, he still had some liberty to choose and as said before with liberty, there is at least the potential consequence of inequality. If  WE all had the same thing and ate the same thing, it takes away from from our individual rights, our individual choices and our individual potential for greatness and innovation. Call that so ordered from a monarch, tyrant, an oligarchy, socialism, communism and even a democracy, but that’s not Liberty. No, not liberty, it’s bondage or slavery, whichever term communicates the best to you. But in this, WE all would be equal. WE just would not be free.

In the affairs of men and women, as Thomas Paine stated in his 1776 work ‘Common Sense,’ “government is a necessary evil.”

Our form of government is based on ideas and ideals, not by force or even perfection. WE are not like the Democratic state of ancient Greece or the Republic of the Roman Empire. We are not great because of some divine right, geography or even our incredible natural resources. Our greatness comes from the idea of Liberty and it was written in the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and, “In order to form a more perfect union,” in The Constitution of the United States of America, in 1789. The early one declares our rights and the latter was purposed to preserve, protect and serve those rights. There is nothing more perfect or less than perfect than what is perfect. “More perfect” is a figure of speech. It is a goal and an idea to strive towards.

“Europe was created by history. America was created by philosophy.”

Margaret Thatcher

“Our government is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction; to wit: by consolidation first and then corruption, its necessary consequence. The engine of consolidation will be the Federal judiciary; the two other branches the corrupting and corrupted instruments.”

Thomas Jefferson

40 years later, what Jefferson warned about became a reality when Abraham Lincoln consolidated all powers to himself. It has remained this way ever since! More is being taken from US, WE the People, almost every single day!

Returning briefly to the idea of the ‘American Dream,’ back in the eighties, our all wise and all knowing and benevolent government 🙂
decided that everyone should be able to purchase a home. The government forced the banks to provide these loans to anyone and guaranteed the loan repayments at the expense of US, WE the People. Well, no banker in their right mind is going to loan money unless:

1. They can make money (a lot of money) on loaning it
2. Without collateral or knowing it would be paid off

But since the government guaranteed the loans, they decided to get creative (or greedy) to make as much as they possible could, knowing full well, eventually, by sheer mathematical certainty, it would eventually end. So, they packaged a bunch of prime salad loans, with sub-prime salad loans (like some hidden wilted lettuce property) thrown in to make them more attractive to buyers that might not see the wilted sub-prime salad loans. This is exactly what was done. It did come to an end. WE the People had to pay for this and we still are! And many of these people, even those that could afford the repayment, lost their ‘American Dream.’ See, salad is not perfect, but the idea can be imperfectly used to our peril and unintended consequences.

Are our youth no more taught the Declaration of Independence, about what are our rights (equality) are. Have the rest of us forgotten? They and WE (those of us that have forgotten), are taught (or we assimilate with) privileges (inequality). Our youth and WE that have forgotten are not taught and do NOT understand the Constitution or how our government works (is supposed to work).

So what is this idea. What is this salad supposed to be. Who and What are WE the People and what will WE have for dinner?

It began with individual rights wherein lies liberty and where there is liberty, there is freedom. From this, WE the People formed and limited the government to be, remain or return to being small. In order for us to have a free economy, there must be capital or capitalism. These two things put into writing = Liberty. Liberty is to be protected, preserved and served by a small government. Liberty allows for the inevitable consequence of inequality. But without liberty, none can be free. Then it beckons to us from our equal and endowed unalienable rights, to be or return to, a God-centered population, rooted in Judeo-Christian values. This allows for a moral society which is formed by citizens exercising freely, self-control, rather than government forcing us to accept the privileges it bestows, through regulations, taxes and control.

Please note: I wrote “God-centered.” This does not mean that everyone has to believe in God, but it does mean that it is necessary to be rooted and centered in Judeo-Christian principles!

In order for this salad to work for one and all of US, each of us as individuals must choose to participate and freely share with others of our abundance (not our needs) that none of US, WE the People lack anything. This is Liberty. This is our salad and there aint’ no FREE lunch (breakfast, lunch or supper either)!

Until together WE become better, we’re stuck with perhaps bland, poor, and tasteless soup from the melting pot or pre-packaged, boring and poor quality lunchables either/or until we run out of other folk’s food. And there is no incentive for anything better! I’d rather pick and choose from a large quality, full of variety and color and texture, delicious and nutritious salad! Give me Salad (Liberty) or give me death! I aint’ eating porridge and plastic wrapped crap! 🙂

So, what are WE having for dinner? 🙂

No PC just CS

“These are the times that try men’s [and women’s] souls.”

Thomas Paine

NoPC1No PC just CS Here?

The first image, a red circle with a red angled line is a familiar visual word meaning, “not” or simply, “NO.” The letters PC could have different meanings, but here its meaning is, Political Correctness (PC).

I have become weary in bending my ears and having to hear it. My eyes have lost their focus and left them cloudy and bleary and hazy and teary-eyed, to have had to look upon it. My lips have become locked to speak of it ever again. Instead, I will return to CS which is, Common Sense. If you need to know what this is, there is the likelihood that you may not have any or political correctness (PC) has driven it far from memory? If I could teach it I would. I know no other way to define it or to share with others how it could possibly be imparted, than by what was written, well over 200 years ago.

NoPC2

Although this was originally published anonymously and first on January 10, 1776, it is no less relevant today, June 17th, 2016, 241 years later. It is almost prophetic in light or in the darkness of our present situation. It was originally titled ‘The Plain Truth,’ but was changed to ‘Common Sense’ and was written in the simple language understood by anyone and especially common folk. It was first published as just a 48 page pamphlet, but it went through many editions and was probably purchased or gifted and read by nearly 20,000,000 (TWENTY MILLION) people in its day. That is saying a lot, considering that the population in the original 13 colonies was only around, 2,500,000 when it was written. For comparison, multiply these numbers by a factor of 10, then do it again. This would be almost 2 billion copies read in a population of the USA at 250,000,000. But really, we are over 300 million.

What is really significant about this book besides its commonality with our present day, the very words were considered seditious and if the author was discovered (now we know it was Thomas Paine), he would have been hung as a traitor to England. The popularity of his work could have made him a tidy sum in his times, but he donated every penny to George Washington and the cause of Liberty. Just forty-eight pages was in essence, the call to revolution for liberty!

If like me, you feel immersed in, drowning in filth and stuck in diseased and life robbing muck of political correctness that is promoted by over-educated idiots that say-nothing and do-less, that cannot discern the difference between a fact and an opinion, I highly recommend reading, ‘Common Sense.’ If you would just like to know what common sense is, to recall it or just be healed by it, I greatly suggest you saturate yourself inside-out with it by reading, ‘Common Sense.’ I am almost nearly 100% sure that if you just had a printed copy lying unread, but in close proximity to you, you might get healed by absorption or as if by osmosis! I will in conclusion to this post, provide you with links whereby you can read it for yourself and/or download it to be viewed on your computers, laptops and/or other digital devices, at your convenience and OFTEN and to share it OFTEN!

 

My suggestions for reading ‘Common Sense’:

Get a good unabridged dictionary and keep it close by. An unabridged dictionary will show origins of words and perhaps explain words as used in the day of its writing that may be unfamiliar to you. And of course, it will define words you may not know. It is interesting to note from the language that if it was common in that day, many of us might think it above our current level of education? We have certainly dumbed down in many ways since 1776.

Read ‘Common Sense’ as if it were being written today, in the time in which we live. Change words as England with perhaps, the United States. Replace the word ‘king’ with say, the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government locally, state-wide or the federal government. Change names to people living presently.

If you will read ‘Common Sense’ as if it were written in 2016, you will be amazed how it speaks to you, to me, to US, WE the People living now.

 

The Present Truth:

We do not have a king in title ruling us, but political correctness has divided us, government has and is dividing us; the media is; education or the lack thereof is dividing us. Politics divide us. Money out of your pocket into that of others with or without our consent divides us. We are divided from one another, from our friends and even our own families. This is the exact opposite of our founding, our purpose as a republic with a constitution written to preserve and protect our unalienable rights as penned in the Declaration of Independence, in 1776. We revolted against tyranny of the day and secured the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, NOT because we were divided, but because WE the People, were— UNITED!!!

Today, we are ripe for a takeover, not merely from some visible external force, but our enemy comes to us from the outside and are among us. The enemy within and the enemy without, have ideologies which are absolutely contradictory to our Constitution as ours is, to theirs. There are only two choices. They either assimilate with ours or we must assimilate with theirs. There is NO other way for the Republic of, by and for the people to remain. If you do not understand this, you have no common sense and are as Joseph Stalin said, “useful parrots,” to the divided-falls-for-everything!

It was Thomas Paine in ‘Common Sense,’ that wrote, “government is, a necessary evil.” Yes, it is necessary, but do NOT for a moment forget that it is EVIL.” It is NOT our friend, our savior, it is force. In the name of division and political correctness, this force which was purposefully limited has because of its nature of EVIL, divided us and deprived us of our unalienable rights such as: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Little by little our freedoms have eroded and continue to erode, amassing the power of WE in the name of some national security or some national crisis into the power and control and redistribution of, by and for the few!

If John Dickinson was the pen of the revolution see: http://wp.me/pGfx1-wy, Mercy Otis the Conscience see: http://wp.me/pGfx1-x0, Thomas Jefferson was the writer declaring our Independence, Thomas Paine with ‘Common Sense’ was the case for liberty. and Patrick Henry was the shout, heard all around the world—

“Give me Liberty or give me death.”

 

Yes, as Paine wrote, “These are the times that try men’s [and women’s] souls.” But for me, I will no longer accept this or political in-correctness. Un-friend me, do not follow me or subscribe to my posts. Divorce me, ban me from your home, kick me out of even my own family if you must. Disavow me and do not allow comments from me, if you deem this necessary. I am weary of dividing and political correctness! If you have no ‘Common Sense’ or refuse to even read ‘Common Sense,’ as linked and provided to you below FREE of Charge, by the way, then depart from me and I will from you! If departing it must be, I would you peace and clarity. I will count you as a brother or a sister. I hold onto hope that one day we could be friends and family. If we are not united, then we are divided, and if we are divided, then I must count you as mine enemy, though it be intentional or not. I am no soldier. I am no eloquent speaker or succinct, clear and popular author. I have no great sphere of influence, no wealth, no sacred honor to pledge, or life that may seem to matter much, but I matter because, I exist. But I can with equal resolve as any and by ‘Common Sense,’ yell to my dying breath just as Henry did, “Give me Liberty or give me death.” I am just me, but I am—

1 of WE,

Dahni

 

NOTES:

The original publication of Common Sense consisted of approximately 48 pages

Thomas Paine began work on Common Sense in late 1775 under the working title of Plain Truth. With the help of Benjamin Rush, who suggested the title Common Sense and helped edit and publish, Paine developed his ideas into a forty-eight page pamphlet. Paine published Common Sense anonymously because of its treasonous content.

Printed and sold by R. Bell, Third Street, Philadelphia, it sold as many as 120,000 copies in the first three months, 500,000 in the first year, and went through twenty-five editions in the first year alone. This would be roughly 20,000,000 million copies being sold today on Amazon dot com.

It was first published anonymously on January 10, 1776, during the American Revolution. Common Sense, signed “Written by an Englishman”, became an immediate success.[1]

In relation to the population of the Colonies at that time, it had the largest sale and circulation of any book in American history. Common Sense presented the American colonists with an argument for freedom from British rule at a time when the question of independence was still undecided.

Paine wrote and reasoned in a style that common people understood; forgoing the philosophy and Latin references used by Enlightenment era writers, Paine structured Common Sense like a sermon and relied on Biblical references to make his case to the people.[2]

Historian Gordon S. Wood described Common Sense as, “the most incendiary and popular pamphlet of the entire revolutionary era.” [3]
Paine donated his royalties from Common Sense to George Washington’s Continental Army, saying:

“As my wish was to serve an oppressed people, and assist in a just and good cause, I conceived that the honor of it would be promoted by my declining to make even the usual profits of an author.”
