Consent of the governed
By Michael Oberndorf
December 15, 2014

Congress has clearly been bought and paid for by big special interests of various sorts whose demands have little or nothing in common with the wants and needs of We, the American People. The trillion dollar + "budget" they are ramming down our throats will add to a national debt that some believe has already reached the point where it can never be paid off. Our children, grandchildren, great grandchildren will be slaves to Big Government and their corporate masters in perpetuity. However...

I did not ask them to spend us into dept peonage, nor did I give them my permission to do so. Actually, I don't know anyone who did, even my liberal friends. I didn't ask or give government my go-ahead to loot the national treasury under the guise of "stimulus," and I especially didn't give them my blessing to distribute that hundreds of billions of dollars to the very bankers, brokers, and other Wall Street Fat Cats the current government claims to hate so much. I also gave not an iota of indication that giving amnesty to millions of ignorant, semi-literate, unskilled, lawbreaking, often racist, often violent foreigners who have no knowledge of, nor loyalty to, our county was something I wanted my government to do for me.

Likewise, I gave neither consent for nor approval of the government's spying on its citizens, or its military mis-adventures in Libya, Syria, or its re-involvement in Iraq. I also didn't ask for or sanction the arming of radical Islamist jihadis in the aforementioned countries. Moreover, I didn't instruct them to interfere in the dispute between Russia and Ukraine, nor endorse the methods the government used to do so.

I expressed no desire for government to take up the fraudulent issue of "global warming" or "climate change" or whatever they are calling it this week, and make it the raison d'être for life in what's left of America. I certainly did not ask nor give my consent for the unconstitutional EPA and the Corps of Engineers to rewrite our already draconian Clean Water Act to include not just navigable waters in their corrupt jurisdiction, but all waters, including the water from the taps in your house and the rain that drips off the brim of your hat.

In fact, there has been almost nothing that our government has done over the past six years that has been done because I or anyone I know has wanted it to happen. Repeat, nothing.

We have been betrayed by the people we naively elected, foolishly believing that they actually wanted to represent us and our vision of America. They have clearly sold out to get into the political elite, driven apparently by an insatiable greed for power and privilege. Not all, but the vast majority of them have broken every promise they made to get us to vote for them. Traitors and quislings of the worst sort.

So, as we approach the New Year, we find ourselves teetering on the brink of becoming a totalitarian, collectivist, Third World fascist nation, run by marginally intelligent racists and thieves, some of whom clearly suffer from mental disorders (Nazism redux?). Our Constitution might as well not exist, for all the attention it's given by those in Washington. In theory, the new gaggle of Republicans we just elected will start to turn things around, but the blatant deception, bald-faced lying, and unabashed collusion with the radical Democrats pretty clearly indicates that the Republican Misleadership will never let that happen.

So, what are We, the People, to do? The current gang of lame-duck fascists has rigged the game so that even if they wanted to, the next batch to occupy Congress is not likely to roll back anything of significance. Thus, we are left with few choices, but what choices we have must be made soon.

One choice, since the civilian government has made it clear that it will do nothing to stop the lawlessness, is to encourage a coup d'état by the patriotic loyalists in the military. Despite the purge of hundreds of these patriots by the Obama regime, there is still a majority who would support a return to constitutional government. However, there's always the possibility that this would backfire and that the military would not relinquish power.

Another option is for the States that still support the idea of a constitutional republic to individually secede from the already crumbling Union, and band together to form a new nation. Given the deep, apparently irreconcilable political, moral, philosophical, and economic divisions among Americans, this, to me, seems like the most viable solution. It's one that many are already considering, and I believe needs to be seriously looked at and discussed.

Time is running out, and our rogue government is fomenting racial violence that can easily be used to justify its imposition of martial law. If that occurs, civil war will result. We need to face reality – not the false picture presented by the government and its Propaganda Ministry – and take the actions needed to protect ourselves and survive as a free people.
