We the People
This post is the Preamble to my new Book, Killing the Giants: the Road to Nihilism.
Preamble to the US Constitution
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Although the Constitution is too large for this publication, it cannot be overstated that the first three words of its preamble alone, make a huge statement about the United States. It begins with a firm statement concerning who has the ultimate authority in this country: We the People. We formed the more perfect union. We established Justice. We insured domestic Tranquility. We provided for the common defense, promoted the general Welfare, and secured the Blessings of Liberty to our Posterity. The Preamble to our Constitution does not say the Elite, the Fed, or name any Governmental entity. It gives these rights and responsibilities to “We the People”. It is the people who have offered up their grandfathers, mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, and brothers and sisters lives to establish and maintain this great nation. And it is the people who will continue to do so.
This Book was written out of a passion to see the United States return to the principle outlined in President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address,
“…that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
Nothing is more tyrannical than a government that is led by a secret clan, who are no more voted into office than the family pets who occupy the White House. Consequently, any elected official who takes orders of any kind, or pursues a global policy that is contrary to the general welfare of the citizens of the United States, should at the very least be tried for treason and immediately banned from public office.
Why ‘We the People’ have not demanded a more transparent government is beyond me. Why ‘We the People’ have not demanded that our elected officials stop the pursuit of globalism at the expense of our sovereignty and national security, is beyond my comprehension. Why ‘We the People’ have not demanded the immediate termination of the partisan diversions of fast-paced passage of bills that slip past public scrutiny, and the innumerable bills that freely hand our tax dollars over to corporations and pet projects that are nothing more than common thievery, is a sign that we have been completely subjugated to the whims of an elite ruling class that assumes our idiocy!
We the people need to rise up once again, and reclaim the authority that was given to us by our forefathers, and by the very rights afforded to us by the God of the Universe. Our civic duties should no longer be viewed as a ‘bore’, but rather a responsibility that each one of us must carry to our graves. We the People, are these United States of America.
