|What does It
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
October 20, 2010
It is the
Constitution, including the Bill of Rights.
Please throw the Declaration of Independence in
there for good measure.
It has been a very
long time in America since we followed the words of
the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Instead,
we have permitted Lawyers, Judges, Liberals and
Collectivists to tell us what the words mean,
no matter what the actual written words may be.
Look to any and every
social, economic and political problem in America
today, and you can trace the roots of the problem to
our having strayed from the words of the
Much of the
intangible quality that defines the Tea Party today
is that this group of Americans, many of whom have
been apolitical, have started to read the
Constitution and challenge the interpretations that
have been used to pervert the nature of the republic
by those who would be our Masters.
People who otherwise
just go along to get along have taken pause in
objection to HealthCare Reform and challenged our
Political Class to demonstrate whence comes the
authority to meddle in health care. Of course,
many of us who have been politically aware and
active have long pointed out that most of what
Government does is baseless in regard to authority.
But now, we have a greater audience.
Article I, Section 8
of the Constitution details the powers the Congress
possesses...they are specific and limited.
Article 1, Section 9 details a few things that
Congress is specifically denied. Of course,
the Bill of Rights represents a series of Rights of
the People that are inviolate.
Patriots are aware of
these facts and arguments. This column is not
for the newbie, so we will not break down the
arguments for those newly awakened.
How does the Patriot
use this knowledge to help restore the republic to
Most Patriots have
resigned themselves to the conclusion that there
will be some event that triggers mass unrest across
the nation. Whether the event is an economic
collapse or a sudden disarmament movement, the event
is only a tangential detail. The important
point is that Patriots will be forced to gear up and
be prepared for violence, and they will push through
the ruckus and try to establish a better future for
the republic going forward.
But what does a
better future mean, exactly?
If there is a
nationwide ruckus that brings about a fresh start
for our political system, what does that new system
look like? Across the III, RTC, Tea Party
blogs we see calls for a wide range of solutions,
including a restoration of the Constitution
(which means many things to many people), a return
to the Articles of Confederation, secession, and
If Patriots must soon
engage in a fight for the republic (many seem
anxious and eager for such a fight), what is the End
Game? What constitutes victory and an end to
hostilities? Who, exactly, are the enemies you
expect to engage, and who are the enemies that you
intend to hunt? As any military professional will
tell you, you need to know the end of the story
before you ever pull the trigger.
nefarious Judicial Activism does not get the
Patriot Movement a single step closer to our
Founding Principles. Complaining about an
undefined/unidentified segment of society labeled
Collectivists does not explain how to
marginalize these people as society is restructured.
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.
Instead, consider the
ugly mechanics of succeeding in an effort to restore
the Constitutional principles as articulated in the
document. There are about 800,000 badges and
guns in the nation, most of which will actively
challenge the Patriots who take the field with
rifles and go bags. What is your plan for
these people? There are about one hundred
million Americans who generally agree with the
Collectivist approach to society. What is your
plan for these people?
Many Patriots suspect
Government has very dark intentions, including camps
and disappearing for those who advocate
Constitutional restoration. What is your
plan to deal with those Americans who disagree
with you, who insist on implementing Collectivist
policies? Camps? Prison?
Deportation? Mass disappearances?
Would it not be more
prudent for the Patriot to put some real mental
energy into resolving the nuts and bolts of
restoration, rather than merely boisterous promises
of impending action?
Begin by reading the
words of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, then
try to justify the actions that may be necessary to
achieve a restoration.
Restoration will not
be a nine-to-five exercise, with a comfortable
recliner and cable television every evening.
doesn't make it so...
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.

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.
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,
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." -
"No, I apologize for nothing. I know the truth,
regardless of what may be in the press. I know

have nothing to fear. I have lived the life He
chose for me, and I still have much work to do..." -
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

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
are a Liberal politician or you vote for Liberal

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.

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!
