Why Government Cannot Be Reformed

As long as you do not live under a rock, you know that the Federal Government prances along on its merry way of central control, no matter who is in office. The traits of arrogance and aloofness are a prerequisite to retain your employment. This pattern of myopic understanding of the precepts of federalism, separation of powers or the nature of a public servant is the primary aptitude of the professional political class. Whether a lowly intern, a career civil employee, a chairman of a Congressional committee or the head of bureaucratic agency, the steamroller of public destruction buries common citizens under the weight of oppressive dictates.

Even if you ignore the politics, you cannot dismiss the debt. The foremost threat to any remote possibility of reform is a burden that is beyond repayment. Most have seen the national debt ticker of the $14 plus trillion owed. That amount is a mere drop in the bucket of the total obligations owed because of past federal government promises. The U.S. Government Consolidated Financial Report (CFR) has a CITIZEN’S GUIDE TO THE 2010 FINANCIAL REPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. The $76 Trillion debt applies just for Federal Government obligations. Add on top of this amount all the States, Metropolitan and local and school bond debts.

These are staggering sums. Then include corporate and institution liabilities, mortgages and individual personal debt. The stark reality is that the debt bubble is the inevitable financial killer. How can a society reform a political system when it is based upon a debt created momentary hoax? Regretfully, reform is not possible. The innate forces of compound interest are insurmountable if these obligations are to be serviced.

Yet the will of the people demands restructuring. Since the debts are unserviceable, surely a rational society would want to stop adding to the problem. Yet the political culture has no such coherent ability to alter the course of the failed “Great Society.”

Obamacare is the best example of suicidal denial. Registered at the polls this last November, was the rejection of this mandatory federal government usurpation of health care. Believing that the new GOP Turks in the House will overturn Obamacare ignores the arbitrary manner of the Senate. At best, a non Barry Soetoro would need to be elevated to the oval office in 2013 for any possibility of a repeal of this outrageous Health Care Law.

That is a pipedream when dealing with the ruling class. A new Rasmussen Report concludes, “The Political Class is even more supportive of the new law than Democrats are. Seventy-four percent (74%) of Mainstream voters support repeal, but 83% of the Political Class is opposed to it.”

A cute “We the People” video attempts to motivate the electorate to get involved and vote out of office the select few who ignores the demands of the populace. Oh how naive! If only it was that simple. The bureaucratic apparatus that busily strive to complicate your lives and ruin your future just ignores all the demonstrations of popular will.

It is time to face facts. Can you name the last repeal of major legislation or an entrenched federal agency that was abolished? Remember all the talk in the 1980’s under Reagan of eliminating the Departments of Education and Energy? If the “Gipper” could not cleanse the bureaucracy, when the stars were in proper alignment, how is it possible for citizen groups to reign in the ever-expanding federal monster?

The public nerve was irritated by Obamacare and righteous outrage expressed. However, compare that offense with the passage of the Patriot Act. You did not even hear a whimper from the shuddering masses. This most draconian insult to the Bill of Rights effectively eradicated the basis of a Constitutional Republic. The last remains of a once great nation died in the 20th century. Post 911, the 21th century is a codification of the police state. The destruction of the World Trade Towers provided the same excuse, as the Reichstag fire did for Adolf Hitler.

John W. Whitehead in a video, Renewing the Patriot Act While America Sleeps, cites the horrid record towards civil liberties since the passage of this diabolical assault on individual freedom. He makes a most valid point.

“Most Americans have been lulled into thinking that the pressing issues are voting in the next election or repealing health care. This is largely due to the media hoopla over the Tea Party, the recent elections and the health care law, and the continuous noise from television news’ talking heads. But the real issue is simply this – the freedoms in the Bill of Rights are being eviscerated, and if they are not restored and soon, freedom as we have known it in America will be lost. Thus, Congress should not renew the USA Patriot Act, nor should President Obama sign it into law. If he does so, he might just be putting the final nail in our coffin.”

The entire rationalization for the War of Terror against the American people rests upon the willful surrender of our most precious natural rights to a corrupt government. The Geheime Staatspolizei secret state police spawn the Homeland Security society. The criminal acts of the TSA are an affront to every citizen.

In this new century, irrevocably harmed is caused by the phony domestic terror phobia. America is a mere shell of herself. Pile on the forced tax to fund socialized medicine over the intense opposition of regular people and you have a perfect storm. How can reform be a practical option when faced with such a perverse political system?

The only sensible path for sincere and courageous souls is to work towards a replacement of the central government model of governance. Eliminating the entire Federal Government structure may seem to be impossible. However, aided in this task are the very actions of an evil system! All empires collapse. The United States is no more a monolithic union than the nations of the world are a global brotherhood.

The myth that citizens owe an allegiance to a failed federation is absurd. The principles of independent sovereign states are a starting point to reorganize after the implosion of the economy and the current political order.

Healing your health will not happen under Obamacare, but the termination of your freedom, under the Patriot Act, has already occurred. The illegal and fraudulent ratification of the U.S. Constitution created the central government despotism that threatens everyone today. The States can reassert their own sovereignty. Obamacare can be the tipping point. Follow the lead of Idaho. “Nullification in Idaho is going to the full House, despite constitutional scholars’ warnings the measure is illegal. The House State Affairs Committee voted 14-5 Thursday to declare President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul null and void. All fourteen supporters were Republicans.”

Clear your mind from the central government propaganda. In some distorted environment, did not the pretender in chief claim to be a constitutional scholar? Here is where the rubber hits the road. Only the threat of federal force can impose a Federal tyranny over the individual States and sovereign citizens. The legitimacy of public consent is absent from presidential fiats.

Egypt should be an emphatic lesson for Americans. “We the People” will not remove the political class from power by casting votes in a rigged election process. Dumping tea bags over the side of the ship of state will not rescue the explorer when that vessel can still sail back to sea. The rot is irreparable. Tea drinkers need to charter a new craft under a different captain, who is subject to the limited terms and spirit of a Mayflower Compact.

Non-violent civil disobedience is the conduct that each person has as his or her primary duty. This response will not stop the debt balloon from popping. Still, real patriots will engage in preventive care to maintain their own health by confronting the brute force of imperial federalists.

A vote to extend the Patriots Act is a deed of domestic terrorism committed by the government against self-governing citizens. Replacing a Congressman or a Senator will not shut down the Homeland Security gulag in the perpetual imprisonment society. The alternative is to spread the message by example and build an uncooperative citizenry to federal oppression.

Mr. Whitehead offers good council: “So the situation’s pretty bleak out there, and will only turn around, in my view, if there is much greater bottom-up, local, and peer-to-peer, community-to-community activism. It’s time to wake up, America.”

The coup d'état unfolding in Egypt is inspired by the globalist grand chess masters. What escapes ordinary Americans is that a former putsch already delivered the reins of power in our own country into the arms of diabolical traitors. It is no accident, which sees a crumbling America, falling apart before our eyes.

The actual reform we need is an efficient and comprehensive accountability that brings the culprits to justice. Reread your Articles of Confederation. It is time to go back to the basic structure intended to maintain liberty and self-determination. Grow up America, the enemy is among us, and intends to stamp out any resistance to their rule. Will you stand with the Tree of Liberty? It is going to take more than just saying no.
