How to Avoid being a Complacent Cow, Summer Soldier and a Sunshine Patriot. By: Ian Forbais
Dear Patriot, Next to complacency, stereotypes, prejudice and propaganda are some of the most evil tool of politics, they have hurt how people understand the politics of how our country is supposed to be run, ended the lives and freedom of many and threaten you now. To know your enemy is one thing. To understand your place in the world of politics and the U.S. Constitution is another. I hope and pray my words are clear and to the point. The healing of our Nation and its survival depends on you. I am a Constitutional Moderate and America is a Republic, as in: "...and to the Republic for which it Stands..." Actually, I believe there are two types of government. There is no left or right political party as defined and deliberately taught today. You have either an Oligarchy or a Republic. I follow the candidate who most favors the Republic. Hopefully as I explain below you will be as well. You vote your conscience in America. You have free speech in America. You have the right of free choice in U.S. elections but with that right come [awesome responsibility]. Free choice is ordained of God. You have the right to choose and when you choose either right or wrong there are consequences attached to these choices as a natural result. It is Simple cause and effect. The power of influence: "success in bringing about a change in somebody or something, or the ability to achieve this" is a major focus in our country right now. You should be actively engaged in questioning this influence and demanding proof of rightness before it is too late for us, our children, and grandchildren! There is no excuse for being a lemming only damnation. Oligarchs (ruled by a few) in sheep's clothing are always at the ready in politics. In politics, you must uphold the Constitution and the Bill of Rights or get a failing grade from me. I thought I had to pick the best of the worst for the last several years because that is all that was offered. I regret this because it helped erode the failsafe of electing a righteous leader. You vote for the proper leadership not for who makes you just feel good! In my opinion, I would have voted for Romney but religious zealots crushed this. This is how Hamas works. Sadly, politics in the last half century and more so in this election has changed people who desire to be the president, mayor, or some other title. Knowledge of the law is a tool, and how to generate the money to get them in that position is now the norm. The more you know how to manipulate the law, the more sought after you are higher up on the food chain. This IS NOT how things should be. Politicians from any party must "hold fast" using the principals of The Constitution of the United States. A Captain uses the skills of seamanship but learns and demonstrates discipline and ethics first or has no command! Look at the most recent example of Captain Richard Phillips of the U.S.-flagged Maersk Alabama cargo ship who was just rescued by the U.S. Navy Seals. He immediately offered himself in exchange for his crew to be free. He jumped into the sea after they were free and began to swim to the USS Bainbridge only to be recaptured under heavy automatic weapons fire from the pirates. He is brave and smart, and stayed alive. He has a wife and family and still chose to offer his life in exchange for his crew’s freedom.
When Bush made some changes to our personal privacy to protect us from more of 9-11, I believed it was for a short season because of the war. I know why certain things must be done to protect us Americans from invasion and attack, also that we have been protected in my time. I believe 9-11 was not staged by the U.S. and believe Oklahoma was a training exercise by foreign nationals. “Thanks Clinton & Janet R.” Shortly after 9-11, six months or so, I voiced my dismay because of the ability to abuse such power was growing, but still believed limited use was okay in that situation. It did help in the beginning but now we are in the total abuse stage and it is horrendous. When you have people who use absolute power, remember that absolute power corrupts absolutely. I never desired to make it publically clear before, I worked with NSA in the military, CIA indirectly (similar office), and military intelligence on and off for nine years. I cannot tell you the scope or content and should not. I will confide that I was around when former President Carter repealed Ford’s 1978 executive order to eliminate domestic spying because of Nixon’s failure. I knew at that moment we were in constitutional trouble. We are not a Police State, yet… • The recent rulings of DHS Ms. Napolitano in my opinion are definitely fascist/socialist in nature. In her statement of 15 Apr. 2009, Ms. Napolitano defended the report, which says "rightwing extremism" may include groups opposed to abortion and immigration, as merely one among several threat assessments. She of course included military veterans! Then there are the recent documents disseminated to all State Police that tells them to report people who argue the constitution to the FBI. There is Judge Hamilton, one of Obama’s 15 new liberal appeals court appointees who is a former fundraiser for ACORN and former leader of the Indiana chapter of the ACLU. He was nominated to the district court bench by President Clinton even though he had no judicial experience and was rated as ‘not qualified' by the American Bar Association." Hamilton ruled in 2005 to ban the practice of opening the chamber's business with prayers mentioning Jesus Christ or using terms such as "Savior." He said that amounted to state endorsement of a religion. (But he ruled prayers to "Allah" were perfectly lawful.). Finally, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says it’s ok for U.S. judges to use foreign law for guidance in their own decisions. What did our Founding Father George Washington warn about foreign influence? He said: "Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government." So, who put these people in office, politicians, bankers, foreign money, ACORN, and other Americans and possibly illegal’s who were looking to feel good.
That is why I favor limited government controlled by the law of the people, a Republic, and not a Democracy as most define it and have been told America is today. When you abandon or change the U.S. Constitution, you are also responsible for any evil that comes of it. Political Systems: You must understand political systems to know the difference between a Democracy and a Republic. Many believe communists are on the far left, fascists are on the far right, and political moderates like President JFK and Roosevelt are in the middle. These perceptions are wrong. However a more accurate representation will show the government will have 100% power on the far left and zero power on the far right.
As I was taught in grade school and researched as an adult:
• • • • • • •
On the left you will have: Communism, Socialism, Nazism, Fascism, Dictatorship, Princes, Potentates, and Kingdoms etc... Any form of total government. In the middle you will find the proper form of government, protecting the rights of the people. That is where the Constitution of the United States is and where I stand. On the left, you have Monarchy - ruled by one (it's always has a group that has members put them into power.) So for all practical purposes it does not really exist. Oligarchy - ruled by a few (most common political group in all of history) (Churchill, Castro, Hitler, Mao...) Democracy ruled by a majority. Republic ruled by law. Anarchy which is ruled by no one (Big mistake that leads to an Oligarchy because in the end the anarchists in chaos beg for it.) As the Greeks said: "Without law there can be no freedom." Our founding fathers agreed and formed a Republic. A Democracy is Majority rule (Greek: Demos=People & Kratein=Rule/People to Rule), which of course sounds good but suppose they decide to take away your home, business, or children? Now what? Obviously there has to be a limit. The flaw in a Democracy is that the authority isn't restrained. If more than half the people can be persuaded to want something, they rule. An example is a lynch mob, rather than a trial by one's peers. In that trial by peers if there is one dissenting vote the majority does not rule. A Republic is ruled by law. (Latin: Res=Thing and Publica=Public/The Public Thing, or The Law) A true Republic is where a government is limited by law, leaving the people alone. America's founding fathers made us a Republic. As Benjamin Franklin said in answer to a woman who asked "Sir, what have you given us?" after his exiting the Constitutional Convention. His immediate answer: "a Republic ma'am, if you can keep it."
Between Democracy and a Republican form of government you can have a lynch mob or a trial by your peers. Again, I choose the Republic and trial by peers. Would you want: not guilty till proven innocent or because the majority says so your form of justice? I thought not. So, it always boils down to an Oligarchy or a Republic because the other systems fail and turn into an Oligarchy. Only the Republic can stand away from the rest because the government is limited by law, leaving the people alone.
Think about The pledge of Allegiance as you read it. Ask yourself: Are you a complacent fat cow in the field waiting to become a food source or a Patriot willing to defend and keep the United States from falling into the tyranny of an Oligarchy? I want your answers!!! I Pledge Allegiance I Promise to be faithful and true (Promise my loyalty) to the flag to the emblem that stands for and represents of the United States all 50 states, each of them individual, and individually represented on the flag of America yet formed into a UNION of one Nation. and to the Republic And I also pledge my loyalty to the Government that is itself a Republic, a form of government where the PEOPLE are sovereign, for which it stands, this government also being represented by the Flag to which I promise loyalty. one Nation under God, These 50 individual states are united as a single Republic under the Divine providence of God, "our most powerful resource" (according to the words of President Eisenhower) Indivisible, and cannot be separated. (This part of the original version of the pledge was written just 50 years after the beginning of the Civil War and demonstrates the unity sought in the years after that divisive period in our history) with Liberty The people of this Nation being afforded the freedom to pursue "life, liberty, and happiness", and Justice And each person entitled to be treated justly, fairly, and according to proper law and principle, for All. And these principles afforded to EVERY AMERICAN, regardless of race, religion, color, creed, or any other criteria. Just as the flag represents 50 individual states that cannot be divided or separated, this Nation represents millions of people who cannot be separated or divided. Respectfully, Ian Forbais In the immortal words of Thomas Paine: "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it NOW deserves the love and thanks of man and woman."
