It's the Constitution, STUPID!
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
October 20, 2010
It's the Constitution, Stupid! is the
subtitle of our book, featured at left. We
chose that subtitle because just as James Carville
articulated the issue with laser precision for Bill
Clinton, the slight liberty we took with the phrase
does the same for our endeavor.
It is our position
that if We the People and our Political Class
would simply restore the conduct of our governments,
local, state and Fed, to the Founding Principles
outlined in the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and
Declaration of Independence, most of the problems
challenging America today would simply disappear in
very short order.
as practiced by professional Democrat Politicians
has been aided and abetted by Professional Political
Collectivist Republicans, to the injury of the
republic and our Countrymen. Collectivism is a
meddling nuisance, a disease upon the prosperity of
Man that reduces the quality of life to dismal
It must end.
Many people in the
III Community are ready to engage violence in an
effort to force changes. We caution that
Second Amendment remedies are premature, at the
moment. Jefferson and the other Founders and
Framers gave to us several peaceful tools for
changing the course of Government.
fundamental. No matter how bad the world
around us is in peril, every single Patriot owes it
to every Patriot who came before, to march into that
voting booth and select a candidate. If you do
not like the candidates, find one you do like and
help get him elected. Better yet, you
jump into the political ring!
Our Founders and
Framers created a marvelous set of documents to
guide honorable men as they sought to administer the
necessary functions of a limited Government on
behalf of a people who deserved to be free and safe
from the predations of worldly enemies.
Our system of
Government requires men with strong moral compasses
and basic common sense. Not much more is
required of any American who would seek to perform
his duty and serve his countrymen.
The first rule is to
remain within the parameters of the document.
Congress must refrain from reaching beyond the
articulated powers that are their charter. The
Executive, too, must play within the lines.
The Judiciary should have appointed only Americans who are
those rarest among us who love our republic and can
honestly affirm that they will not advocate their
personal political wishes from the
Bench through their rulings.
With proper people in
our elected offices, the wholesale evisceration of
existing FedGov agencies that are beyond the proper
scope of FedGov will be immediately shuttered.
Employees in these agencies must go home and now
compete for jobs based upon their actual skill-sets.
Good luck with that.
A bonfire shall be
held on the National Mall where the new Congress
will televise a ceremony. Copies of many of
Washington's most banal laws will be hurled into the
raging fire for the country to witness. The
IRS Code. The volumes that make up the US
Code. The countless books of regulations from
EPA, DOE, FEMA, and beyond. Congress will get
to work tomorrow and draft single page,
double-spaced replacement laws limited to one sheet
of paper each.
keeping with the system of taxation articulated in
the Constitution, the states are hereby ordered to
deliver the sum equal to 10% of your State's GDP to
the Fed Treasury so we can support our Military and
other vital functions.
Keep the new laws
brief, plain language, and morally fair!
The second most
important act that should make its way through
Congress and to the Presidents desk is the Citizen
Militia Act. As an armed and ready militia,
comprised of the Citizens of the republic is
essential to our internal security, the FedGov will
place orders with every Arms Maker in America to
produce M14 Rifles with three-round burst capability
in sufficient numbers to outfit every Citizen above
the age of 11. The same order will be placed
for an equal number of original 1911 Browning
pistols in .45 ACP.
Now Citizens, all
laws regarding possession of the Arms of the Militia
are defunct. It is your right to own and carry
your personal weapons in any manner you see fit,
concealed or open carry, in any venue within the
Please use common
sense regarding weapons. Judge Roy Bean's
Rules are now in play!
To claim your
Government Issued M14 and 1911, you will be required
to complete a 30 minute safety program administered
by a US Marine, Soldier, Airman, Sailor or Coastie.
Once you have satisfied this requirement, the
weapons are yours, forever.
As Possession of Arms
is a Right, you may opt to buy your personal weapons
from a vendor, who will not have safety mandates.
But if you want the M14 & 1911 built from taxpayer
dollars, the course is a requirement.

wants a Social Security program, Californians may do
as they wish.
It's called Liberty.
Day one of a renewed
America draws to a close.
Already, it is a
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.

"Liberalism, and Liberals, are ruinous to the republic,

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." -

regardless of what may be in the press. I know

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?

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

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

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!
