Americans succumbing to new and deadly disorder
Do you suffer from C.R.?
By Curt Chancler
America is under attack!
Sons and Daughters of America heed the Nation’s cries for help! Our Mother of Freedom and all that she stands for is under attack! Heed her cries for help! If this sounds overly dramatic or corny to you, beware, for you may be suffering from a form of C.R. - Constitutional Retardation!
It seems Constitutional Retardation has always been among us but in the last fifty years it has reached epidemic proportions. Constitutional Retardation is very easy to recognize in most cases, one of the most obvious signs to look for is anyone, especially an elected official, that refers to the United States of America as a democracy.
Now, if our junior high school teachers were correct, and we believe they were, America by definition is a Constitutional Republic. A Republic where the heads of state and other officials are elected as representatives of the people, and must govern by the will of the people and existing constitutional law that limits government’s power over its citizens.
The power of government and its officials is further limited in a republican form of government by the separation of powers into three separate branches—legislative, executive and judicial—and no person charged with official duties under one of these departments shall exercise any of the functions of the other.
A Constitutional Republic by design prevents any one person or group from gaining absolute power over its citizens; we are a nation of laws not men. Our history clearly shows through the writings of our founding fathers, that their major fear was that our republic would become a democracy. They knew what a democracy was—an open door to the tyrannical side government often dissolving in to mob rule.
We are a Constitutional Republic with a democratic form of representation. Anyone that has read our Constitution and Bill of Rights or sat through nine months of junior high school American history and still believes that the intent of our founding fathers was that we become a democracy may be suffering from Constitutional Retardation.
Think about this. If you know the names of professional athletes and their statistics but you do not know the names of your Congressman and Senators you may be suffering from Constitutional Retardation.
If you know the names of actors and their credits but you do not know the names of our founding fathers you may be suffering from Constitutional Retardation.
If you can sing the words to popular songs but cannot quote any of our Bill of Rights you may be suffering from Constitutional Retardation.
If you strive to be politically correct and also think you believe in freedom of expression and freedom of speech you may be suffering from Constitutional Retardation.
If you believe government knows best concerning your children, your money, your business or your property you may be suffering from Constitutional Retardation.
If you believe that we as Americans have the ability to put someone into office through the election process and do not have the ability to remove that person from that office through the recall process you may be suffering from Constitutional Retardation.
Our complacent, lackadaisical attitude toward our nation’s election process has been a slow but sure death sentence to the rights and freedoms that we all enjoy as Americans. Protecting those rights and processes are key to our survival as a free people.
If we are to believe it is of the utmost importance for us to remain a self governing free people, we must understand the difference between a constitutional government of the people, by the people, and for the people and an unconstitutional corporate, administrative government that is by design solely intent on building more government, more intrusive government and a government that enslaves the people.
In our May, 2008 issue article While We Were Sleeping, we attempted to address the unconstitutional make-up of administrative agencies and their dictatorial side affects on you, your family, your business and even on the future of Americans to live as a free people. Administrative Law runs counter to Constitutional Law. It is not a friend to the Constitution or to a free people.
Constitutional Retardation can only exist when we forget the tyrannical chains of a monarch were removed by force so we could live as a free people. We, as a free people, created our Republican form of government so that government is a servant of the people. When the people are not in control of their government they are no more than a serf to his master.
Our Founding Fathers created a republican form of government because they feared a democratic form of government could never survive the inherent nature of man and his rapacious quest for power over other men and nature.
They believed a Constitutional Republic with a democratic form of representation would protect our freedoms and stand the test of time. Our Constitution with its second amendment right to keep and bear arms would insure that no one foreign or domestic could deprive us of those rights. Our founding fathers, having just broken the bonds from a monarchy, were deeply concerned about a government overstepping its bounds. A government that could forget the citizen was sovereign.
Thomas Jefferson, the main proponent of our Bill of Rights, believed that the pages of our history may have to be sprinkled with the blood of patriots in order to maintain our nation as a republic.
The very first amendment and its importance to all of us as a free people is clear: The right to the religion of your choice and the free exercise of that right; The right to have opinions and the right to declare them openly without fear of government restrictions or reprisals; The right to establish a free press that reports to the people on government actions—good or bad—without fear of censorship; The right of the people to gather peacefully and publicly protest the actions of government or business; The right to petition the government for redress of grievances.
Our second amendment gives us the right to keep and bear arms. This is the muscle and the power of the people to enforce and protect all that our first amendment freedoms guaranteed to us.
The second amendment is so simple and so clear that only someone with Constitutional Retardation or, even worse, a government wanting to disarm its people would have any difficulty in understanding its meaning or intent.
Our second amendment regarding our right to keep and bear arms states, “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”
The term militia throughout history has meant a non-paid military force composed of ordinary citizens often providing defense as a paramilitary force or law enforcement in times of emergency. The intent of our founding fathers was clear that the militia would be composed of men from the ages of 18 to 45 years old and they must have a good musket—rifle. They knew everyone had the right to have a weapon and use that weapon in their defense when attacked by man, beast or government. To believe otherwise is to take Constitutional Retardation to its most dangerous level.
As a private citizen you take on the role of a specialized form of militia convened to render a verdict in a court proceeding when you serve as a juror in a jury trial. When you and other private citizens come together as a group to investigate a public matter and bring it to a grand jury for an indictment, you are again acting as a specialized form of militia.
If you believe even for one second the intent of our founding fathers was to trade the yoke of a monarchy for the tyrannical yoke of a dictatorial government and/or president then you are definitely suffering from Constitutional Retardation!
The enemies of America are not just from lands far away, but from the far left and the far right views and beliefs of the citizens right here in America, both in and out of government. But the most dangerous enemy of America and all that she stands for is YOU, the complacent citizen.
The most important thing for us as a free people to remember is that the source of our freedoms and rights outlined and guaranteed by our state and federal Constitutions is what gives us the strength, the power and the ability to endure the test of time. But our enemies, both foreign and domestic, also know if the citizens of America are not willing to stand up and fight to defend their Constitutions those words are nothing more, nothing less than a bunch of old ink stained pages of paper.
Wake up America! Wake up before it is too late!
