A furious James Madison is no doubt spinning in his grave. The outraged ghost of Thomas Jefferson may even now be penning a new declaration damning the Supreme Court’s de facto decree–in The State Of Texas, et. al. versus the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, et. al.–that massive electoral fraud is A-OK in post-democratic, post-constitutional America.
What the Court has wrought is as radical as it is tragic. For all intents and purposes, it has pulled off a hat trick for the ages by (1) invalidating our nation’s founding principle of consensual government; (2) nullifying the rule of law; and (3) transforming the U.S. Constitution from a security pact among the sovereign states and their citizens into an instrument of surrender to an omnipotent, coercive federal government.
The bottom line is simply this: No longer will free and honest elections be pre-requisites for the federal government to claim legitimate authority over we the people of the United States of America. What was every previous generation’s priceless inheritance of “government of the people, by the people, for the people” is no more. In its place, the Court has substituted a worthless, embryonic tyranny. Unless reversed, this will be seen by history as Chief Justice John Roberts’ shameful legacy. It will be regarded as his Dred Scott moment.
To give credit where it’s due, the Roberts’ Court had lots of help in bringing us to the precipice of this brave, new world. Its justices were aided by the decades-long efforts of lifetime-tenured, hyper-politicized, black-robed lawyers like themselves, whose rulings regularly twisted or totally ignored the Constitution’s original, plain meaning. Through their rulings the federal government gained ever-increasing power and control over our homes, churches, schools and other personal sanctuaries. Not coincidentally, those rulings slowly suffocated traditional, God-fearing American culture while inexorably advancing the secular agenda of America-hating globalists.
The bad news is that, as things now stand, our comatose, constitutional republic barely has a pulse. The good news is that liberty-loving citizens still have it in our power to restore the rule of law and limited, consensual government to America.
Time is short, however, if we are to succeed in our rescue mission. What’s needed is a non-violent, grassroots movement of courageous citizens committed to forcing our wannabe political masters in Washington, D.C., back within their original, strict constitutional constraints.
Only by tightly constraining these rogue “public servants” can we preserve for future generations the blessings of liberty which we ourselves inherited from our patriotic ancestors. And only by restoring honesty to our elections can we ensure America’s survival for our descendants as–in the words of Ronald Reagan–“a nation that has a government, not the other way around” (ref. http://www.newguardsforliberty.com).
