Challenge the Political Establishments Now or Kiss the Constitution Good-Bye

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD April 25, 2012

The United States is no longer what John Adams described as a government of laws and not of men. It has become the opposite.

Many of those presently in the federal government have violated their oaths of office to support and defend the Constitution, they have obstructed justice and they have scorned and rejected citizens' attempts to petition for the redress of grievances.

The continuous stonewalling by both parties' elite is clearly directed toward preventing an investigation that would reveal a federal government riddled with corruption and that operates solely for the benefit of politicians and their wealthy power-brokers.

The conspiracy of silence by the political establishments and the associated news blackout by a compliant media can only be explained by complicity in a cover-up of criminal acts that, if they became known, would enrage the American people and rock the political system to its core.

If there is another explanation, I would like to know it.

The plain fact is that if the candidates were fully vetted and the activities of the Democrat and Republican establishments were fully known, the American people would rise up in open rebellion. 

Between now and Election Day, there is a window of opportunity to fight the permanent political corruption in Washington, D.C., restore the Constitution and uphold the rule of law. After that, it is "Game Over."

As Abraham Lincoln noted, the American people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.  The loyalty of the American people is to our country and our Constitution, not to shady officeholders or petty bureaucrats.

For too long we have been silent and inattentive. We must now overthrow those responsible for the endemic corruption in our federal government.

The American people are frustrated because they have believed that politicians can be informed or influenced in the spirit of representative government. That is impossible because the political establishments represent only themselves, only care about winning elections and the power and wealth it brings to them, not about the principles upon which our country was founded.

Petitioning the current Congress for the redress of grievances is futile. Members of Congress have turned a deaf ear to the voices of their constituents.  They can no longer be trusted as the guardians of our posterity.  In regard to members of Congress, the words of Thomas Paine come to mind:

"The world will be puzzled to decide whether you are an apostate or an impostor; whether you have abandoned good principles, or whether you ever had any."

The political establishments have now decided that they alone will determine which parts of the Constitution they will choose to follow and which ones they prefer to ignore. Their propaganda ministry, the mainstream media, will provide the necessary thought control.

The whims of politicians have replaced the Constitution as the basis for the rule of law in the United States. It is a recipe for chaos.

Thomas Jefferson wrote:

"And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance?"

The first "shots" of the Second American Revolution have not been fired, but the battle lines have been drawn.

The days of education and persuasion of corrupt politicians are over.

The time for resistance has come.
