A Failure of Men
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
September 9, 2010
There are those in
the various branches of the Patriot Community who
proclaim the Constitution and our other Founding
documents have failed. One argument oft noted
is that the Constitution was intended to protect us
from tyranny. Some folks want to return to the
Articles of Confederation.
All of this is
Did the Bible end the
evils of man?
The Constitution was
never intended to prevent tyranny from setting upon
the republic. Firstly, it is a parchment, it
can't pull a trigger in defense of anything.
More importantly, each and every Founder & Framer
knew, and warned us in their writings, that what
they were giving to us, their posterity, would
always be at risk of wicked men.
A republic, if you
can keep it...
Does anyone really
believe today that the Founders & Framers were able
to eradicate human nature with the ink on a
parchment, and that civilization would proceed
forward on autopilot free of the problems caused by
They had to fight and
kill just to give us a chance at a life free of
Kings and despots. The chance that they gave
to us, the opportunity, is simply a set of tools
codified within an operating system for governance.
The very premise of the Balance of Powers between
the three branches was required because they knew
that the nature of man is to consolidate power and
subjugate his fellow man.
Not one of our
Founders or Framers ever thought the fight was
finished when the British went home. Even
though it was their Countrymen who would now take
the reigns of governing, they knew that some would
seek power over others, and it did not matter that
these men were American rather than British.
In every age of
man there are those who intend to be Masters...
The Founders gave to
posterity four essential tools to ensure that future
generations could be rid of those wicked men.
They gave to us the ability to vote. They gave
to us the only articulated crime in the
Constitution, Treason. They ensured the States
retained the power of nullification, to dismiss
Federal mandates that went beyond the scope of the
Constitution. Finally, they articulated the
innate right of man to defend himself in the Second
When all else fails,
shoot the bastards.
To say that the
parchment has failed is incorrect. It is we
Americans who have failed to implement the
Constitution. We have allowed those wicked men
to use the mechanisms of governance to become our
We have failed to
vote. In so doing we have allowed the wicked
men to fortify their positions in office.
That's our fault.
We have failed to
bring a single politician before a court to face
charges of Treason for willfully disregarding the
limits of the Constitution - either a court set up
under the Constitution or a court called into
session by a group of Patriots. Hell, we
haven't even tarred and feathered anyone in
Juries have no idea
of nullification, because the wicked men have
completely turned the educational system into their
indoctrination system. They do not tell our
Little Darlin's about nullification. Hell, one
day someone might even try to use it!
States are looking at
nullification. One of the sleeper movements
moving through the nation today is the
Freedom Act, spearheaded by
Gary Marbut and
the State of Montana. He has managed to bring
aboard several states and more are considering the
process. The argument is that the Feds have no
right to regulate intrastate commerce.
It is a
States Rights issue using firearms as the vehicle,
and it has great promise...providing Patriots still
have the spine to stand up to the Feds. Let's
see if the States that are moving down this road
have the grit to implement it properly and actually
shoot the Feds who dismiss their position.
Finally, there is the
Second Amendment. Every American today should
be embarrassed by the state of this innate and
unalienable right of man in our republic. You
own only the firearms permitted by the State, after
dutifully groveling and begging permission, offering
tithe in the form of fees and taxes.
Many among the RKBA
crowd call for moderation in the fight, urging that
we are making headway and recovering our rights,
within reasonable parameters. The moderates on
this issue are already slaves, they are spineless
and wholly owned by the State, for they have already
yielded an innate right. They give legitimacy
to the concept of Gun Control the moment they accept
the premise that the State has any right to
The Constitution is
not a failed document.
Americans have failed
to vote the bad guys out of office. Americans
have failed to run candidates who will respect the
Americans have failed
to hold Treasonous politicians, bureaucrats and LEO
accountable. Americans permit these people to
violate right after right, with impunity.
Americans have failed
to maintain strong states, abdicating power for
federal dollars. Every politician in your
state has been elected by your fellow residents.
They used the voting process, we did not.
Americans have failed
to defend the Constitution, for we have not met at
the Courthouse with arms and go bags in hand,
demanding that they stand down.
Americans have failed
the Constitution, not the other way around.
comes a time when civility is no longer appropriate
as the only option on the table. Dare we not offend the
sensibilities of Liberals, Socialists, and Communists in our
midst who are ruining and destroying our republic? Are we
to cower and sheepishly genuflect when we are scolded for
the tone or choice of our words in the face of ruin,
poverty, tyranny, and death?!
we so frightened of chastisement from insignificant men and
women of the political Left with stained and darkened souls
that we turn from our duties of Patriotism and shun our
sacred obligation to support and defend the Constitution of
the United States of America? We ask you, is not our
republic worth the risk of being castigated? Is the soul of
our mighty nation no longer worthy of our fortunes, our
lives, and our Sacred Honor? Have we lost so much of our
heritage, our courage, our mettle, and grit that we will
stand idly by and permit the foolish and the stupid, who
work hand-in-hand with evil people in our nation, that we
will permit them to send us into eternal slavery and tyranny
as the world has never before witnessed?
Excerpt: You are a
fool if you do not believe that elements of the Left would
use force, if they could, to compel you to comply with many
of their edicts. In drafting healthcare reform, they use
the threat of financial fines, felony conviction and
prison if you refuse to buy health insurance!
How is that not only a
degree or two removed from a pistol to the head? We are
undeniably heading toward the same tyrannies known to
Russians, Germans, and the Chinese. It starts with
Liberalism, advances to Socialism, and ends with Fascism,
Communism, or some other tyranny…and death.
We have a
culture of people whose first response to a physical threat
is to dial 911, or worse, a lawyer. We have a nation of
people who will dump hot coffee on themselves, then sue the
restaurant – and win! We have a nation of educators
who suspend children for drawing a picture of a handgun or
for bringing a Boy Scout knife-and-fork kit to show and
We have a nation of
people so removed from the food chain that many would starve
to death if the local supermarket closed. We have a nation
of people who cannot truly grasp the hardships faced by most
of the people in the world every day, and as a result we
have a nation of people who have lost fundamental common
Excerpt: The Bill
of Rights articulates the natural rights of man, rights that
are not bestowed by government, but rights that are innately
ours as human beings. These rights may not be taken from
us. These rights were written in plain language so that no
clever interpretation and manipulation of the intent was
possible. These rights may not be restricted, narrowed, or
infringed. Any attempt to do so is a violation of the
relationship between Man and Creator.
restriction, infringement, and clever interpretation imposed
upon us in the years since our Constitution was ratified is
simply a violation of our natural rights.
We hold that every
violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights by those in
Government is an act of Treason, as these violations are
unjust, undermining the fundamental foundations of our
republic, breaking the pact between citizen and government,
and desecrating the relationship between Man and Creator.
Any man or woman who enforces these unconstitutional laws on
behalf of government is a treasonous soul and an enemy of
Liberty and humanity.
Treason & Tyranny
ad bellum: There is a moral obligation on the part
of any Patriot who decides to engage in violence,
before you cross the Rubicon and plunge yourself and
perhaps your republic into the horrors of civil war.
Killing an enemy is always just and proper in the
face of an existential threat. Whether the
Liberal comes to your home to kill you, or
sends armed Government thugs to kill you, or to
interfere with your ability to provide for your
family, he poses the same existential threat to you and
your family as does the liberal who pulled that
lever in the voting booth. Dead is dead,
whether by violence or poverty and starvation caused
by Liberal policies, and both are morally sound
justifications for war.

Current political leaders are only the face of the problem
confronting America today. The underlying cancer
eating the American Soul is Liberalism. But for your
Liberal neighbors, Liberal politicians would never be
elected to office.
It is not sufficient to simply defeat Liberal politicians at
the polls. Liberalism must be defeated in our society
and Liberals must be marginalized, or this disease will kill
Every patriotic business owner should immediately fire every
Liberal on staff and hire an employee who respects the
nation and our Constitution. Why should any business
owner suffer an employee who will simply vote for
politicians who further ruin the company?!
The Liberals in your community must be ostracized and denied
entry into your social circle. These stupid people are
responsible for the insanity that affects everything from
your property taxes to the curriculum taught to your
children. Why would you break bread with them, when
they are the reason your bread costs too much? Why
would any parent permit them access to their children, when
they are responsible for ruining your child's future?

First, we will demonstrate that all politicians, judges, and
government employees at the Local, State, and Federal levels
who support federal Healthcare Reform, the Assault Weapons
Ban, TARP, Stimulus I, Free Trade Agreements, PATRIOT Act,
the new “Jobs” bill, or a host of other such Federal
programs or initiatives, are guilty of Treason against the
United States of America.
Secondly, businesses, multi-national corporations and
special interest groups that support Liberal politicians
and/or Liberal programs, Cap & Trade, Global Warming
legislation, et cetera, are committing Treason against the
United States of America.
Finally, we will demonstrate that those private Citizens who
support or vote for any of these politicians—once the nature
of the politician is known to the public—or programs are
equally guilty of Treason by knowingly lending material aid
and support to a Traitor.
