CUTTING OFF THEIR NOSE TO SPITE THEIR FACE—Are We Facing A Second Declaration of Independence?.

The Donald

I keep reading on Facebook and other places where the establishment Republicans, and even some conservative Republicans have stated that if Trump gets the nomination for president, they will vote for Hillary, or they won’t bother to vote at all. As I see it, every non-vote for the Donald would put Madam Hillary one vote closer to the presidency.

Dame HillaryThis makes absolutely no sense to me. I liken it to cutting the nose off an ugly face just to spite the face.  If one were to do that, the ugly face would in all likelihood, be even uglier.  Donald Trump wasn’t my first choice for a Republican nominee, but it looks as though he is going to be it, which means I’ll have to vote for him; because, yes, given her record as Secretary of State and a New York senator, Hillary could in all likelihood be much worse than BO in spite of his disastrous presidency. In other words, Madam Hillary could make the situation even uglier—for America, and the rest of the world.

I believe the United States is headed toward a deep abyss, and we’re very close toBlack Canyon II the edge. I don’t know if the Donald can stop the juggernaut toward this abyss, but he may be able to slow it down.  Hillary, in my estimation, will speed it up, and drive us over the edge.  So, to all you disgruntled establishment Republicans and so-called conservatives who say you will not vote for Trump under any circumstances, I say, “vote for Hillary to your own peril and to that of the rest of us as well, and we will all get the government we deserve.”  The same goes for those who are for a “stop Trump at any cost” movement; those who are shooting for a brokered convention to put in a candidate more to the liking of the establishment Republicrats.  That candidate will likely go the way of McCain and Romney.  Those two gentlemen, in my opinion, deliberately handed the last two elections to BO because they were a couple of wimps afraid of being branded as racists if they told the real truth about him. Romney didn’t even have the gumption to challenge the voter fraud that was later discovered.

It wouldn’t surprise me to see the Democrats  regain control of Congress in the upcoming election, because the Republican establishment  have lost the trust of their base. They campaign on one platform, and govern on another.  Because of this, the juggernaut will continue toward the abyss, anyway; even if a so-called Republican is elected president.  It’s my belief that whoever the so-called Republican nominee is, he won’t be a real Constitutional Jeffersonian republican.

As an interesting side-bar, the Democrats like to tout Thomas Jefferson as the founder of the Democrat Party, when in reality, it started out as the Republican Party.  The Federalists dubbed it the Democratic-Republican Party as a mockery  of its anti-monarchic philosophy.  The Democratic-Republican Party, and its followers were known as Jeffersonian Republicans.  They were real republicans with a lower case (r) who believed in a smaller de-centralized government. It was called the Democratic-Republican Party when the word democratic was an still an adjective before the liberal Progressive Democrats in the media and elsewhere, made it a noun. The Democrat party is anything but democratic, and neither is the Republican Party, but at least the Republicans  don’t try to cover it up with a phony name.  0oops, yes, they do.  They should change their name to the Republicrat Party. 🙂

The Committee of Five

The committee of five for the Declaration of Independence

Speaking of Thomas Jefferson,  the United States at the present time, is a divided nation; almost equally into two separate ideologies.  One ideology favors a smaller more limited government, the other favors a stronger more powerful central government where the citizens would literally be wards of the state. Provided here is a short excerpt from the Declaration of Independence.

‘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.

“In other words, when it is determined by the people that a government has become their master rather than their servant, it’s time to tell it, enough, and make the separation. The United States has become an oligarchy controlled by nine justices in black robes, and a bunch of untouchable bureaucrats and bureaucracies almost as tyrannical as that of King George III. Let me continue to quote from the Declaration of Independence.”

‘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 abolish it, and to institute a 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.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Government long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. 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 a Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security….’

 The United States has drifted so far toward tyranny these past hundred years We The Peoplethat perhaps nothing short of a radical actual physical separation of the kind described by Jefferson, and also in Will Edwinson’s novel, SHADOW REVOLUTION,can  bring us back to freedom.

  • Very thought provoking post here-America needs a lot of fixing! I sometimes think that a return to more States Rights would help. Let all the administrative and social issues be handled by each state the way they want to. Get the Feds out of welfare, the environment, schools, safety, and all matters that the States can do a better job at.

    Such a devolution of power would downsize the central government and let the people of each state direct their course. With 50 states taking action, the more successful ones could be copied by the others. And we could move to the states doing the best job. Edwinson’s Shadow Revolution would be achieved by just voting with your feet.

    If some states wanted to dole out disability checks to fakers, without any checking, they could do so-and pay the consequences with high income taxes. If a state wanted to provide school choice and enforce meaningful discipline in school, they could do that. There would be a free market of ideas and 50 competitors, each wooing businesses and people to enjoy the best they could offer! The president and Congress would be free to re-name post-offices, negotiate meaningless treaties, and vote pork to their states-and that’s all! Wouldn’t that be nice?

    • Hi Bill:

      You are absolutely correct in your assessment of States Rights. As a matter of fact, as I am sure you already know, the Tenth Amendment to our Constitution states as such. I’m going to repeat that amendment here, not for your benefit, but for those people who do not know the Constitution. It reads: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”

      So what you are saying about the states taking their power back is spot on.
      A good many recent Supreme Court rulings, in my estimation, violate states rights and should not be obeyed. The Founding Fathers never intended for the Supreme Court to wield such power.
