When in the course
By Michael Oberndorf

"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 natures God entitle them..." So begins one of the greatest documents in the history of the civilized world, our Declaration of Independence. Written 238 years ago, it has become, it seems, necessary to re-examine these words and their meaning in light of the present condition and apparent future of the people of the country our ancestors founded on them.

The people of the nation created on the principles of individual liberty and the sanctity of private property have, with malice aforethought, been divided, fragmented socially, economically, ethnically, racially, and just about every other way you can think of, by our own government. Trusting fools that we are, we believed the growing string of lies fed to us on an ever increasing basis by subversive leftists calling themselves "progressives," then "liberals," and now "progressives" again. We bought the Big Lie that they had our best interests at heart and that we didn't need to pay close attention to what they were up to. Today, it has become obvious that we were taken for a ride, a ride that's nearly over, and tyranny is the final destination.

Only an absolute idiot can look at the Democrat amnesty juggernaught and the Republican establishment's support of it and not understand that this is sedition at its worst. To make millions of lawbreakers, including a vast array of violent criminals, who have no understanding of our history nor any commitment, much less loyalty, to our Constitution, our traditions, our values, or our society, into legal, voting citizens is national suicide. And yet, this is what our government is hell bent on doing, regardless of the clear will of the majority of We, the People. This is a total perversion of what our government was intended to be. Again, look to the Declaration:
    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 (emphasis added).
Over the past 50 years, and particularly in the past six, We, the People, have had a steady stream of far leftist inspired laws, regulations, executive orders, and judicial fiats rammed down our throats by all three branches of government. Amnesty, Obamacare, spying on us by the NSA and other government agencies, unconstitutional wars, the "stimulus," the destruction of our military, gun control, abortion, criminal misuse of the IRS, massive economy destroying regulations by unconstitutional agencies like the EPA, government land grabs disguised as National Monuments, etcetera, etcetera, ad nauseam. This is just a few of an appallingly colossal and still growing list of unaddressed grievances. Again, please refer to the Declaration:
    That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it (emphasis added), and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such for, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.
As in no fault divorce, it is patently obvious that there are fundamental, irreconcilable differences among the people inhabiting the United States. There is no middle ground acceptable to either side. The Democrats and the Republican establishment and the approximately 40% of Americans they represent are committed to the construction of a monolithic, totalitarian, socialist welfare state. The rest of us who believe in the Constitution and want a return to a government that adheres to it, are equally committed to living in a free, capitalist society. Though we have been repeatedly betrayed and denied, as in the most recent election, it is not likely that we will just quietly acquiesce while government and its surrogates roll over us like tanks in Tiananmin Square.

Our best hope is that the various States will find the patriotic spine to stand up to the federal government and tell them where they can stuff it. The Tenth Amendment clearly gives them the power to do so. But on top of that, they need to seriously begin to consider secession, the withdrawal of the so-called red states from the rapidly collapsing Union. The violence being instigated, incited, and abetted by the government is growing. Race war is today a real possibility, thanks to Obama, Holder, and the Ministry of Government Propaganda, aka, the "mainstream" media. Decisive action by the States is needed now. Without it, the course of human events for We, the People, looks grim.
