As the world around me dives deeper Ito chaos and despair, I ask myself how can I be of greater service. For me the prayer of St Assisi holds the answer.
“Make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon,
Where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
Where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.”
What the hell is wrong with the medical profession these days? When I was a kid, my neighborhood doctor gave me a physical, drew blood and took samples for testing, stitched me up when needed, made in home visits, and in fact about the only thing he didn’t do was major surgery in his office.
Now days, you must have a primary care doctor, with his attendant nurse practitioners, and massive office staff, who gives a partial physical, sends off to the phlebotomist or lab to get blood or other samples drawn for testing, to Imaging specialists to get X-Rays, MRIs CAT Scans, to a Rheumatologist, Orthopedist, or other specialist, who in turn will send you to someone else to get something else done.
All in all the medical profession seems hell-bent on lining each others pockets with your meager funds and bilk the insurance companies for the whatever they can.
When all is said and done for the most part it seems that the results you get from the constant run around and depletion of your sadly diminishing monies is nothing more than several doctors, specialists and lab techs best guesses. Which is usually a conclusion you had already come up with.
I see our situation as stark with a lawless and immoral government populated with malcontents and reprobates that have no fear of we the people. They see us as gullible children manipulated or like sheep to be lead complacently to the feeding trough of entitlement and eventual slavery. However at the same time, I do not sense that the people are in fear of the government as much as they have become largely dependent on the government as an infant would be dependent on its nurse maid. Sadly the result remains the same, the tyranny of an out control federal government combined with the fascism of crony capitalism, corporatism and central banks. Where does this leave the patriot seeking liberty and freedom to live, with a choice of surrender or resistance through, civil disobedience, refusal to comply and if no other remedy is available defensive rebellion.
The roots of our republican form of government are not found in today’s federal government, but in the confines of the Constitutional Republic given birth by our founding fathers and ratifying states in 1789.
At our birth we were 13 sovereign entity, states, formed by we the people and imbued with the authority to do what we as individual could not do by ourselves. It was these 13 sovereign states that agreed and we the people that consented to fraction off a limited amount of authority and power to on our behalf undertake the fledgling nations overall security, foreign commerce and interstate commerce for the good of the unified states. However at no time did the states or we as individuals ever consent to surrender our sovereignty to the newly formed central government. And in point of fact at the time of ratification there was great opposition to the creation of a central government, for the very reasons that have become so clear in our lifetime.
So when in our history did we ask permission to sever the ties with the British overlords, or when did we ask permission to revolt against oppression and tyranny and when did our founding fathers ask permission from treasonous bureaucrats to found a new government?
Therefore I ask you… Where in heck did the sovereign citizens and states that created this republic ever get the idea, they needed to ask the permission of the federal government to secede. News Flash, no permission is necessary, your state legislatures need merely the draft the documents of secession, and with the permission of “We the People” pass the writs of emancipation from the republic and they are free and independent.
The problem arises however in many states with heavy federal entitlements that they cannot exist without federal dollars. The flip side of that fear however is the reality that then dollars that are funneled into the federal government by the states and its citizens would stay in the states nd likely be put to far better use than is currently the case with the exorbitance and largess of the federal bureaucrats. Another plus to our resources being kept closer to home is that the opportunity for transparency and accountability becomes far greater.
Isn’t it time we returned to the roots of our republic? Independent Free Citizens and Sovereign States!
Just had a phone call from my patriot friend Jim. Jim, as I, is tired of the whining and woe is our nation cacophony. We have now had five days of mourning, that is enough, now it is time to cast off our widows veils and funeral attire, pull our marching boots on, gird our loins and hit the streets. We know that the political system is not our path to the restoration of our Constitution and the Republic it gave birth to, or solution lies on boots on the ground, in your face presence, resistance, refusal and physical proof to our errant government that we truly do surround them, in a way they cannot ignore. Therefore I send out the call to all patriots, constitutionalists, Tea Partiers who are committed to their principles and patriot organizations to unify as one and drive the destroyers out of our houses of government. Sound the Alarm! It is time to move on the betrayers of the Constitution!
