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 ridiculous.

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 wicked men?


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 Amendment. 

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 Masters.

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 centuries!

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 Firearms 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 infringe...

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 Constitution.

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.

Excerpt: There 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?!

Are 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.

Excerpt: 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 tell! 

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 sense.

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. 

Every narrowing, 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.

Liberalism is Treason & Tyranny

Jus 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.

Mike at Sipsey Street came up with the outstanding idea to place the above stickers out in the world.  As a shot across the bow to the Political Class, I can't think of a better method of warning those who would be our Masters that peril lies upon their chosen path.

Print them on Avery weatherproof shipping labels and get them out into your community.  This brilliant concept conveys all the power of a thousand-yard stare without the risk of immediate conflict.

We formatted the above image to fit on weatherproof labels - so click on the image and print it off onto a few sheets of Avery 5526 labels, then go to work!  We stretched the image a bit for the best fit.

"Liberalism, and Liberals, are ruinous to the republic, and must be marginalized if America is to survive.  Patriots must step to this challenge and risk the wrath of the Politically Correct, and do the work that must be done to honor our Fathers.  Liberals must be stopped, at any cost." - Kerodin

"No, I apologize for nothing.  I know the truth, regardless of what may be in the press.  I know that when I stand before Saint Peter, I will be granted passage.  If I am ever granted audience with God, I have nothing to fear.  I have lived the life He chose for me, and I still have much work to do..." - Kerodin

"No man looks forward into life when young and can imagine for himself the life I have lived.  But I am better for it.  I have been places never anticipated.  I have had experiences never dreamed.  I have met people who would have never otherwise been in my social or professional circle.  I have, many times, leaned upon the words of Winston Churchill - 'When you are going through Hell, keep going!'" - Kerodin

My family continues to promote my values where I can not.  They are Patriots.  If you ever meet my wife, you will meet the most loyal wife and Patriot in America.  She is brave, brilliant, and bold.  We fight Liberal stupidity together through the First Amendment.  Laws change - and one day I will stand with her again in the Second Amendment fight that she carries on when I must stand aside."  - Kerodin

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 the republic.

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?


This book may not be for you.

If you consider yourself to be a Liberal or Progressive, go away. You are not permitted to buy this book. This book is written by patriotic Americans for patriotic Americans. This is a discussion among ourselves, and if you are a Liberal politician or you vote for Liberal politicians,
(Of the genus Stupidus Liberalis)  you are not invited to participate.

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.

Excerpt: The five most expensive parts of our national budget are:

1.      Social Security

2.      Medicare

3.      Medicaid

4.      Defense

5.      Interest on the National Debt

Numbers 1, 2 and 3 are wholly unconstitutional and brought to us by Liberals. 

Number 5 is wholly a result of numbers 1, 2 and 3!
