I just ordered The Constitutionalist by TL Davis.  I read the first chapter online, and decided I needed the entire book.

Check out the site, and think about buying a copy.

He posts often over at WashingtonReb, among other places.

Regular readers here know that we do not attack specific politicians or members of the Political Class in our columns.

There is no point worrying about a specific grain of sand at the beach.

According to CNN 66,882,230 people went into voting booths and selected President Obama in 2008.

That's the problem, the thinking processes of those voters...not President Obama.  Or Biden.  Or...fill in the blank.

The number of Americans suckling from the teat of Government (that's you and me, folks) is staggering.  Nearly 42 million people take food stamps.  47 million take Medicare.

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, Collectivists & the Political Class at large. 

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

Not yet on the list: Obamacare.

Once voters realize they can vote themselves money from the Treasury...

Again, the problem is not that people can vote themselves handouts, it is the makeup of the Soul that would permit himself to accept the handout that is the problem in America.  Accepting a charity is not sinful if the need is genuine.

But in America, Government directed charity is gamed not only by the leeches of society, but by the Political Class that uses the handouts as a tool. 

Arguments that I paid into the system, so it's my money are bogus beyond a finite point.  The arithmetic is simple: A man earning $50,000/yr x 20 years pays in (at 7.5% FICA) a total of $75,000.  The employer chips in a matching $75k.  At $1,500/month payout, the money should run out in 100 months...a bit over 8 years.  So, you start taking someone else's money (Your boss') at 4 years 2 months.  At 8 years 4 months, you are into money that neither you, or your productivity, put into the system.

Missing from the numbers above are the millions who are on the Government payroll: Politicians, bureaucrats, LEO, et al.  In many cases this is welfare by a different name, because a significant number of Government employees are incapable of surviving in a merit-based environment with a profit motive.  Just ask any Washington DC resident about the experience of getting a drivers license or a car inspection.

Statistics range from 13-17% (the most widely accepted numbers) regarding the poverty level in America.  So, despite the trillions of dollars that are taken from productive Americans and handed by Government to unproductive Americans by one venue or another, we still have a level of hungry people across the land that is nothing less than a national shame, and criminal.

The answer, as with every social and economic problem confronting the republic, is for the Federal Government to abide the boundaries set by the Constitution and get out of the charity business.  Prior to the days when Government asserted dominion over feeding the hungry, we did not have people dying of hunger in the streets.  Charity from private citizens and groups was far more effective and productive.

Our Masters in Washington approach the Economy the way a music producer approaches a sound board: If we adjust this tax a little here, and give a little tax credit there, and dial down on this fee here, we'll get X results. 

The problem, of course, is that every government tinkerer is as knowledgeable as a village idiot and the economy is a sound board with trillions and trillions of knobs and doohickeys.

The economy is a dynamic and nearly sentient thing, created and changing every moment as billions of people take trillions of economic decisions every day.  In a truly free market the cost of every item would reflect its true value, always.  Without the influence of Government, the costs of living your life would decline by at least half, even if our income taxes remained the same. 

Everything would be cheaper.  Despite the panicked pleas of those who insist the world will stop spinning if Government abandons controls, regulation and oversight, the quality of products would improve.  Research would take a natural course (think space, the final frontier), rather than an artificial course (think AIDS) into areas coerced by Government.

Foreclosuregate could not happen in a truly free market, certainly not to the scale we have today.

And in a truly free America, if anyone tried to pull such a scam, there would be no Government incentive to protect the garbage.

The answer, as in all matters facing the republic, is respect for the Constitution.

But, how do we convince tens of millions of people to stop taking a free ride?  How do we instill a sense of pride and self respect, rather than the mentality that taking is somehow entitled?

Shame doesn't seem to work, anymore.

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.

How do you know when you have made the Bigs?

You catch a Federal case.

When you earn real attention from our Masters, you'll know it...usually after it is too late.  Our Masters will tolerate quite a bit from folks, even Patriots who are rabble-rousing.  They really don't care if you are stocking up on rice and beans, even rifles and bullets.  They don't care if you call them names or incite a few misdemeanors.  If you are trying to get their attention and you have not yet caught a Federal case, it's still amateur hour.

It's when you start to have an impact on the flow of dollars that you will earn real interest.  Write a report that negatively impacts the stock value of a few Fortune 50 companies, and you will soon have a genuine understanding of the term Lawfare. 

You may also be schooled on Constructive Possession.

There are many lessons you may be taught.  Now.

You will learn inside baseball details about the US Code that will make you ill. 

The world begins to move very, very quickly. 

You will be faced with stark choices that have never entered your mind, because you think you understand the rules.

Then your options are put on the table: 2 if you take the deal, or 20 if you fight...and we'll add a Conspiracy for your little dog, too...

You will learn that the power of a US Attorney is crushing.

Do not make it easy to take you out of play, Patriot.

And, it is oh, so easy...if they ever decide to do it.

The choice is theirs...not yours.

Do not make the mistake of thinking you are a tough guy just because they have not yet chosen to come for you...

Every Patriot in America should read the book The Tyranny of Good Intentions: How Prosecutors and Bureaucrats Are Trampling the Constitution in the Name of Justice  written by Paul Craig Roberts.

Get your head on straight, Patriot!Following the counsel of idiots and hollow heroes regarding SHTF circumstances will get you dead...and if you can't tell the difference between serious men and hot-air machines, you're already half way to a mass grave.  Growling on blogs about how you will not yield one more inch, or one more of your gun rights, then letting LEO have your pistol during a traffic stop makes you a pathetic joke, not a Leader worthy of serious consideration.  Hyperbolic proclamations about what you will do to any Alphabet Agency team making a dynamic entry to your home is hardly helpful to the Patriot cause.

Man up and think for yourself, or you are wasting perfectly good air, and feeding those who depend on your intellect and common sense false hope.

"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?


Excerpt:

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.
