David Hogg’s Collectivist Disinformation Rant!

March 26, 2018

Liberal Ignorance and Myopathy on Display!

By: Gary Hardee

Published: March 26, 2018

Hogg destroys his own argument when he said that he doesn’t want to keep anyone from exercising their Second Amendment rights. How can that be when he doesn’t want to repeal current laws that do “infringe” on it already while at the same time advocate more laws further “infringing” on a person’s right to keep and bear arms?

Just imagine what a field day the communist/collectivist/leftist liberals would have had decades ago when the gun-grabbers first pushed upon us federal laws if the founders and writers of the Bill of Rights had written “rifles” or “flintlocks” or “muskets” or “dry-power arms” instead of just “arms” in the Second Amendment!

Not only has he no grasp or understanding of the purpose(s) of the 2nd Amendment, he actually sides against a person’s essential right to be armed at any and all times.

The successful shooting and murder of the unarmed at MSDHS clearly dramatizes the fact that leftist/communist liberals have been extremely successful in making sitting ducks out of our most vulnerable citizens. Such shooting galleries are specifically created by the very infringements that Hogg claims he is not seeking! Master Hogg! You can’t have it both ways!

Parents! Please, let this be a lesson to you all! Hogg is very symbolic of the product of government school indoctrination supported at home by parents who themselves are products of collectivist indoctrination. Hogg’s parents are radicalized leftist Democrat Party collectivists. They “support” their son’s “leadership” and involvement in this campaign because of his youth and peer associations. Hogg’s “leadership” on “this issue” is deliberately pumped by the establishment/globalist and pro-U.N. agents imbedded not only at the U.N. and prominent globalist think-tanks (tax-exempt of course) but by the hordes of college professors, academicians, the vast majority of government paid teachers and all the equally paid-off or sympathetic media mouthpieces we see on “mainstream media” (MSM).

The victims of this campaign will be expanded to those very participants who “think” they are going to make their lives safer by “passing another set of laws” while only sheepishly admitting that Nikolas Cruz broke many existing laws to do what he succeeded at doing.

The gun-grabbing Insiders intend to convert the United States into just another province of a global oligarchy of morphing tyrannical powers. It is just what the power class does

The Insider power class created the system of “free” government “public” schools and then made it mandatory under penalty of law that you send your offspring to them for their indoctrination and our parents and grandparents didn’t know. They knew nothing about Horace Mann or John Dewey, let alone the likes of James McKeen Cattell, G. Stanley Hall, Charles H. Judd and James Earl Russell.

Many public school teachers today have never even heard of these men or have a clue how they themselves are contributing to our nation’s demise. They are the lab technicians – putting our children in their petri dish full of collectivist fungus – yet they feign shock at the outcomes? Never blaming themselves, they clamor for “more money” for education and vote for candidates who promise more of the private sector’s production to pay for the next cleverly named “program”(you pick it)! They don’t even care how much public debt they place upon their charges (young students) through deficit spending that requires we borrow money the government doesn’t have to still NOT fix the problem! It is absolutely INSANE! (sorry for the caps).

We are in seriously deep doo-doo! Besides voting out every Democrat and leftist on our ballots at every opportunity, we must ourselves file to be on the ballot and make our campaigns an eye-opening educational one! Tell people to turn off the TV and start their own serious education which so readily available on YouTube alone! This war cannot be left to the ego-driven opportunist that wets his finger to see which way the “popular winds” are blowing. WE must change the direction of those winds by becoming much more fully informed!

Yes! Remove your children from public schools. Demand vouchers from your county government for each of your children. YOU can better direct your own children’s education based on your own growing knowledge of our history and the pressing issues we are all facing as a nation. If vouchers are not available, run for the office that can make that happen! You will have substantial support but you must be a good salesman for the cause! Know your subject! The info is out there in spades! Don’t be shy or frightened! The next generation is in OUR hands.

Are You a Victim of the Education Con?

How A Truth Based Education Is Truly Liberating

By: Gary Hardee
Published: March 22, 2018

I admit it!  My writing style is one of frankness. None of what I write is directed at the reader or anyone specifically.  It’s more like – “if the shoe fits, wear it.” Please, take my remarks “in general” as if I were addressing an audience of diverse composition.

As always, I thank you for reading.

An early business ownership at the age of nineteen gave me experiential knowledge of the business world – upon which I built a broader understanding of history, economics, philosophy and socio-political world views because of their direct ties to and influence upon life in a capitalist society. When it comes to humans and their interactions with the laws their legislatures pass – that we assume are to serve the common good – one cannot pick but from two positions.

One side is freedom and personal responsibility and the other side is regulation, restrictions, controls and ultimately subservience to the “law”.

If it’s a law, then it must be legal and therefore it is assumed to be moral and ethical. Or so we wish them to be.  We are to believe that all laws are good and we must live within them. We are not to doubt or question their moral authority but bow to the will of the majority.  When we were young we were told by our “elders” that “there’s a law against” this or that and “it’s the law!”  If one professes to be Christian or raised with Christian principles, then it follows that things like The Golden Rule are practiced in our lives voluntarily. The requirement for needless laws doesn’t exist since only peaceful, non-violent and moral actions would be experienced.  What’s that old saying? “If men were angels, we wouldn’t need government or laws?” But the literal millions of laws that man has passed cannot be known by each and likely makes lawbreakers out of many peaceful people.

What’s the other famous saying? “When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns!’ Weren’t the citizens of Germany warned they would become criminal lawbreakers if they didn’t turn in their guns after a law was passed making possession illegal? What happened? Millions were murdered by their own government! Democide!  Did we learn that lesson of history? It does not seem that we have!  Is that lesson taught in our government schools?  Umm… no.

I have always related to math. But I have found that those who are not good at it most likely failed to grasp the basic principles of fractions and decimal expressions from the outset. One cannot be good at geometry or algebra without a fixed and solid understanding of the basics of math! Right?  You may have struggled through and even forced yourself to learn enough to pass the required tests.  But you don’t relate and don’t really see the need to relate. Right? As an adult in the working world, you can easily lay to rest that portion of math that you no longer find useful in your daily life.  So do other things we deem unimportant to our survival and advancement.  Being free from “schooling” you tend to hold more firmly that which serves best your immediate survival and prosperity. We tend to become more specialized as we trod career paths.  We actually become quite good at what we focus on!

Like the fundamentals of math, our youth are taught the fundamentals of communism but not told upfront that it is what they are being taught.  Their programming compels them to think, act, speak and support communist / collectivist ideas while strongly objecting to being called a communist. They cannot define communism because they have not studied it under that label. If asked, a high-school graduate could not name a single plank that Karl Marx put on paper for them to read themselves. Not one in a thousand college graduates can name two of them! In a pool of such mass ignorance and biased, deliberate instruction, why do citizens wonder what is happening to our country’s freedoms and her Constitution?

Is it any wonder that high-school graduates think the United States is a “democracy” rather than a republic? They have no clue because they have had but one source for their knowledge. Their indoctrination is confirmed by every network MSM channel, nearly every college professor and by the vast majority of likewise ignorant “wet-finger” politician or con artist.

But to get along and to have many friends in our “networks” that could help us at times along the way we are told never to discuss the twin subjects of… religion and politics. Right?  It’s taboo!  Too controversial!  Too divisive!  We have all heard it and none of us can say we haven’t.  But we are told over and over and over again that we must vote, regardless of our knowledge or our own country’s Constitution.  After all, we are very busy with our lives and our careers and we keep to ourselves, even among our friends, our views on politics. But vote we must!  It is our civic obligation! We are told “our democracy” depends on our vote to function. But who would be so shallow as to suggest that a mass of ignorant and divided people can at the same time choose wisely those who will wield the force of government over us in their passing of “laws”?

Is it unreasonable to suggest that one’s civic duty would include a sound understanding of the very Constitution that our elected officials are sworn to support and defend?  Do we simply trust them?  Should we trust them?  Do they deserve to be trusted?  How will we, in our ignorance, know when they break their sworn Oaths?  Who are the wolves?  Are there wolves?  How do you know? Are we willing sheep?

Even though the great majority say they are supportive of the Constitution they still have not read it even once in their lives from beginning to end!  Are we just too busy to do that much in preparation to our voting? Are we scared?  What are we scared of?  Is it thought of as a waste of time?  Or do we “think” we know what’s in it yet we cannot quote any two of the Bill of Rights?  Why should you be thought of as a wise and informed voting citizen if you have not bothered to read it’s all too readily available text online?  Can’t read?  Won’t read?  How about an audio of it?  Would you then listen seriously to it?

When it comes to philosophy and government, people are clearly not on the same “page”.  Too many have been taught, without their awareness, a system of lies and perversions from an early age. After graduation, some escape their instruction as they grow older and learn real-world truths. But it often takes years to have to finally admit that you were deliberately hoodwinked and sold a bill of goods labeled as an “education”. We have been defrauded!

As voting citizens of one country under one national Constitution, why aren’t we more in agreement with the principles of liberty and self-government? Who is teaching us and what are they teaching us? Do we ask? Not enough it seems! We are forced to attend government schools from the age of 6, and nowadays even earlier. The teachers are government employees and most are NEA Union members. They too are forced to teach from government approved courses that they too begin to believe the more they teach from their materials. We are given “tests” that we must pass to prove we grasp what they are teaching. Good grades are naturally pushed by the school and reinforced by our (more so likely) single-parent at home because they themselves allow the “professionals” to “instruct” our children’s young brains with their approved curricula while too many are busy watching the Kardashians.

It seems we have allowed it!  It was the “law” after all.  Now, we are having hell to pay for our willful compliance.

Will our citizens wake, and through regular self-education, revive their dying freedoms in time?

Exploring the Rationalizations of the PC Wilderness

Does Biology Have Meaning Anymore?

By: Gary Hardee

Published: February 9, 2018

These are the days of equality. Or so we are told ad nauseam – high, low, left and right! Right? Times when women are no different than men and men are no different than women and we can be anything, at any time. That’s what feminism, genderism and multiculturalism claim they want: to be respected and liberated; to be free to be oneself regardless of “differences,” right? You need look no further than all of our government subsidized institutions of higher learning to find the “motherload” source, the brightest and best-paid “sociologists” and “think tank” revolutionaries serving it up to the youth of our nation and it is not hard to see the results. Of course we can look elsewhere and find “pushers,” but the supporting cast is almost anywhere you look.

In fact, today, you can claim to be whatever “sex” or “neutral sex” you wish to be based solely on your feelings today and change your gender tomorrow based on how you feel then.

Surely you are up on the new way of thinking. The new Political Correctness! The new “rights” being pushed throughout the world claim to “liberate” people from the rigidity of “old-world ways.” They are plastered as headline “news.” Respect is mandated in obligatory “gender study” courses in government subsidized schools. It’s the “new norm.” And you better comply!

After all, “peoplekind” can’t be allowed to remain constrained by old traditional values and norms. “Freedom” demands a much broader vision of the world and nature as a whole. We cannot control our biological predispositions for which we are not responsible but must claim our freedom to be what we feel we are, not what we appear to be.

Songs like, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” are too old fashioned and offensive now, especially to those biological homosapiens born with wombs. Can’t call them girls anymore! Not PC!

Besides, isn’t it great that now, if “Men Just Want to Have Fun” too, we can? Nope! That would also not be PC.

If God made Lesbians (gay females), Gay “males,” Bisexuals, Trans genders, Queers, Asexuals, Nonsexuals, Multisexuals, Metrosexuals, Nongendered and a host of “other” sexes, then didn’t He (oops, It) also make perverts, pedophiles, polygamists and predators? Why are they being prejudged? Aren’t they as entitled to the same respect to their feelings to be what they feel they “are?” These same acolytes just love “diversity” and “multiculturalism,” right? If it is their Holy Grail, then shouldn’t antidiscrimination laws also apply equally to Aliens, Minorities, Majorities, Immigrants, Natives, Illegals, Cultured, Uncultured, Intelligent, Unintelligent, Informed, Uninformed, the criminal and the violent religious zealots alike? Aren’t they all due their same feelings and fully equal respect?

If today I felt like God made me an uncultured, bisexual, polygamist black religious zealot pedophile nudist, then why am I not accepted as an equal in a liberated society when government is protecting everyone else’s “diversity” and “multiculturalism?”

Multiculturalism imposes divisions and segregates each into their own “special interest” group, so they can exclaim they are the victim of a “society, full of unaccepting bigoted, sexist racists!” A claim hurled at anyone who would just rather not associate or have anything to do with them. Forced acceptance is their demand and government is their sword. Collectivism is their chariot. And you better smile and be happy about it or else you will lose your promotion or your job, be expelled from school, be featured in your local media as a nonconformist heretic and probably be unwelcome at most church or civic organizations.

Can you say: The tyranny of the minority? If, by my choice today, I am now in the minority, then why can’t I too be a tyrant? Why should I be made to suffer recriminations for who I choose to feel like today?

Don’t you see God working through this uber liberating “movement”?

Which “Superbowl” Is Playing This Weekend – Could There Be Two?

February 2, 2018

By: Gary Hardee
Published: February 2, 2018, 2:37 pm

I cringe at the contemplation that rumors of potential violence at this Sunday’s annual NFL Superbowl might be real. But given that our own 9/11 history teaches us important lessons, it would be a bit naïve to think all is well and that we should worry about nothing. No free society will ever be without the responsibility to be watchful and protective against threats to their lives, liberties and properties.

Should anything significant happen in Minneapolis during the Superbowl, the timing of such an attack will shorten or stop the debate over immigration and what to do with illegals within our borders. Anyone on the side of amnesty or accommodating the recent influx of refugees should not want anything to happen because such an event would cement opinions and eventually end any sympathies that many “undecideds” have on the matter. An “event” will fuel an even greater demand to close our borders, stop all immigration for a time, remove all illegals, end DACA & any “DREAMER’S” hopes for years – and rightly so due to necessary defensive action. It may well fuel Republican victories in November as well!

Our citizens should be very careful believing any narrative that quickly emerges afterwards. Whether that narrative is just to get readers or to “float” the deep state’s position(s) the public should “buy”!

Do you remember the original Tea Party in Boston Harbor? Were those real Indians? Nope! Personally, I would find it difficult to believe that the “average immigrant” would be of a mindset to bomb or disrupt a major event like this, even if many may have no intention of fully integrating or assimilating into our uniquely American culture.

But if you still have suspicions that deep state actors were behind the 9/11 WTC attacks in 2001 to create a “crisis” fowl enough to pass the previously written “Patriot” Act, and fuel a 16+ year-long undeclared war to “profiteer” from it (among the “Military-Industrial Complex”(MIC) companies influenced by CFR board members or their agents) then don’t rule out the possibility that a similar “False Flag” might be planned that would: a) further fuel overseas wars; b) aid in support of increased “defense” spending; c) fuel new, enhanced domestic “security measures”; d) further militarize our local police; e) further “federalize” our local police; f) greatly raise the specter of civil unrest and eventual martial law; g) violate “posse comitatus” protections; h) justify the use of FEMA “camps” that are rumored to exist; i) unify our people to support currently controversial agencies such as the FBI, DOJ, CIA, NSA and even FISA court actions and methods. It may likely replace our current discourse about the Nunes “Memo” [#ReleaseTheMemo], rumored to be a “Pandora’s Box”, that may aid our population in routing deep corruption and bias in what are supposed to be our most trusted investigative agencies. And it would seem logical that “Draining the Swamp” efforts could be sidelined for a time in the aftermath of a major event.

Such an event would necessarily call upon the Trump Administration to bring peace and calm back to our streets, neighborhoods and cities, but not before the predictable and expected “corrective measures” would have been taken. Such actions would also be “set upon” by the President’s enemies as proof that he is really just another tyrant like Obama, Bush, Clinton, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, etc. NOT a good setting! So, who wins? Who loses?

Always remember to ask! Who benefits most? Who did benefit the most? Who lost the most? What things were most lost? Answers to those questions will likely identify the culprits and limit misdirected finger pointing.

If you believe the Deep State is a covert clan of anti-american, pro-globalist, pro-government collectivists, then why would you also not believe an attack this weekend would not be something they would want to see or even orchestrate? If the current “Memo” ballyhoo has any credence, then wouldn’t the “Deep State” players have their own “Superbowl” to win? Could this be their great opportunity to score a winning touchdown and stop the much-needed investigations into their corrupt collectivist network?

Now a message from the “farm managers”. “Avoid fake-news and alternative media and trust the reliable sources that most people hear. Turn on your TV and listen to NPR and read the major news sources around the world because they can be trusted to repeat the same narrative emanating from AP, Reuters, Bloomberg, Pravda, PR Newswire and McClatchy. If you do have questions, turn to us for answers and please don’t think for yourself or do “independent” research – that’s what the media is here for after all. Now, enjoy the football game and we’ll give you all the news that’s fit to print. OK? “

Is It Racism or SOMTINGEX?

November 24, 2017

In their closing segment, Crowder & Co. make some great points about how people rise or fall to “their” level around you by what you tolerate and the example you set. They are specifically talking about the statistics often cited on the topic of “today’s rape culture”, as it supposedly exists on U.S. college campuses.

We all have heard that birds of a feather flock together.  We are then taught, especially in relationships, that opposites attract. Both are components of and byproducts of human nature and survival instincts. They aren’t necessarily contradictory, but one of them, or some other significant decision drivers compel our greater natural tendency to live among those we do as well as where and with whom we do!  Let’s explore some possibilities.

Human behavior patterns are not something that government can dictate because these patterns are ingrained and are further learned and shaped by our human experience.
For instance, is it an indication that a society is racist when all the asians, blacks and whites live mostly in communities dominated by their respective races? No, not at all. It’s not proof of racism in each of the groups. When people are free, and sometimes even when they are not, they will still tend to feel more comfortable and secure in themselves if they hang around those most similar to them in several different ways. Race seems to be one of those natural determiners. Economics seems to be another. Education level seems to be another. This is why you will find “communities” of varying sizes that naturally segregate themselves into groups most similar across all three segments.

Poor people don’t live among rich people for fairly obvious reasons. When a poor person becomes rich, do they bulldoze their ghetto house and build a mansion in its place and remain among their former class? Not that I have observed anywhere on the planet!

Rich people of any race do not live among the poor people of their same race. Why?

Do those with higher education levels such as doctors, engineers and successful business owners live in communities of ignorant, unschooled or undisciplined people? Again, no! Not usually.  Does government force them to separate from their lower class brethren or is it a more natural tendency?

Do people of similar religious beliefs tend to congregate into communities of “similar” faiths? Again, yes! Is this because of “religionism”? [Religionism would be defined as “religious” racism or religious superiority if you prefer]  No, not necessarily.  That, it would seem, would be about intellectual comfort.

Why are there whole communities that have a higher than average makeup of “interracial couples”? Is this, again, more about safety and comfort than anything else?

Survival, safety and mental/intellectual comfort are the ruling motivators of our human actions. Not racism! Not snobbery! Not superiority!  Could these play a part? Yes, I think so.  How much do you think those considerations influence these patterns? Share your comments below!

The bottom line is fairly clear. When anyone can move away from bad behavior, unsafe and uncomfortable conditions, we generally do! This leads to “natural segregation” or if you prefer, natural “aggregation”. Even wealthy criminals don’t live among poor criminals, regardless of race. Monetary and intellectual factors seem to me to be the larger factors that fuel our steps to seek safer, more comfortable “surroundings”.  Not “racism”.

[Title clue: You might be too young to remember the marketing slogan: “Is it live, or is it MEMOREX?”  Back in the days of cassette tapes and reel to reels, just as in today’s products, companies sought to “stand out” and push their “superior” product line to increase market share. SOMTINGEX translates to “SomethingElse”]

Los Angeles Gun “Buyback” An Epic Fail

December 27, 2012

Los Angeles Mayor’s Gun “Buyback” An Epic Fail

12/27/12
By: Gary Hardee

Original CBS story: here

Anyone who has been observing the political left since the 1970’s is not surprised in the slightest at the predictable knee-jerk response to the recent high profile tragedies at Sandy Hook Elementary School and the Aurora, Colorado theater.

The well entrenched minority of international collectivist elites will stop at nothing to deprive their targets of the means to resist them. “Useful idiots”, as the communists call them, are abundant. Let any crisis, real or imagined, occur and the pressure from above begins and the cannon fodder masses, feelings close in tow, bow in unison to calls that defy history’s lessons and surge headlong into the lion’s teeth.

In this CBS propaganda piece, such conclusions are easily reached. We see no attempt to balance the sympathetic actions, though rewarded with money for guns, with hard facts about the clear disconnect with crime statistics and the massive number of guns in the hands of the public at large. Instead, we see a most tortured rant against guns and the over glorified and totally ineffective childish turning in of guns for cash.

If 2,500 guns are expected to be “turned in” in this drive and 8,000 guns since 2009 have been turned in, that makes a total of 10,500 guns. Assuming only one gun per person is turned in out of at city with a population of 3,819,702 – the participation rate in this “most successful drive ever” is .002748, or a non-participation rate over 3 years of 99.997251 percent of the city’s population.  Good for you Los Angeles. Your intelligence is not given any credit by CBS or the Mayor of your city.

According to a Gallop Politics article from October 2011, 47% of adult Americans own a firearm. Admittedly, these figures are not exact, but if just 20% of L.A. adults own one gun, that’s 1,963,940 guns in the city.

10,500 guns is only 1/2 of 1 percent of the total. This media piece makes it sound like the 33% reduction in crime from 2009 to date is due to the gun buyback program involving just 8,000 guns. If just turning in 8,000 guns has resulted in a 33% reduction in violent crime then with just another 16,000 turned in it would eliminate the other 67% of violent crime in L.A. It is the gun grabbers that are making the firm connection so one must surmise they are blaming just 8,000 guns for previous higher rate in violent crimes. How does one honestly connect those 8,000 guns, not now in the hands of the citizens, with a reduction in violent crime unless it was those very guns that committed the crimes?

A non-thinking person is lead therefore to conclude that just 24,000 guns are responsible for all violent crime there. If this were true, why call for the disarming of the 99% of guns that are not responsible for crime? It is also mathematically and statistically insane to conclude that zero violent crime will only occur if all guns are banned and confiscated when by their own implied logic only 24,000 guns cover all violent crime.

The more you slice the media hype the more ridiculous their claims become.

What percentage of L.A.’s violent crimes are committed by repeat offenders, parolees, early parolees, or the criminally bent gangs or gangbangers? Nothing is said about the number of would-be violent acts that are thwarted by a citizen with a gun or what will likely happen when only the unstable and criminally inclined have them.

The second amendment’s purpose is to preserve a “free state” against all enemies, foreign and domestic, against tyrannical agents and authoritarianism emanating from our own government. History shows that authoritarianism is best achieved with a disarmed citizenry.

The high degree of non-participation in this “buyback” scheme tells me the collectivist propaganda is largely falling on deaf ears as it should. Just watch out for and defeat local, state and federal infringements that are surely forthcoming!

We all share great sympathy with the victims and their loved ones so maliciously deprived their young lives it still does not justify a course that will only leave more people even more defenseless. This is not good government or good policy, it is lunacy!

I too would like to live in a world free of crime and violence. Not all crime is violent and not all violence is criminal. But what we all know, understand and accept is that evil, unethical, and immoral actions will never be stopped, even in the most authoritarian system imaginable. Under such systems, crime does not cease, it becomes enshrined and emanates from those in power.

Considering the wide array of “criminal activity” that has befallen mankind, the real question becomes; When actual threats to your life, liberty or property come calling at your doorstep, what means of defense against the aggression should you be deprived of or denied by your own government through laws? What tools of aggression do you think the criminals will be denied because of those same laws?

It is unethical of me to deny you your preferred means of defense. Forcibly denying you makes me responsible for your full safety – an impossible task!

The best way to contain or eliminate all types of crime is the universal collective threat of a bullet between the eyes.

What’s This Talk About Secession?

December 16, 2012

12/16/2012
by: Gary Hardee

Some may wish to be a ward of the state, receiving from it gratefully the crumbs of what are their natural rights, bowing low to accommodate the will of the “collective” and yield to the pervasive “group think” that now haunts the thinking of our citizens… but where does it end?

Perhaps you are married “till death do us part”. Does that rule out a divorce from a totally out of control marriage that is clearly violating its foundational tenants? Why do laws allow for divorce in the face of that voluntary vow of monogamy and other expected normal functioning of a married loving couple?

Isn’t it funny how we apply situation ethics when we find the ends to our liking? Are there times when extreme irreconcilable conditions exist that justify ones public appeals for peace, harmony or justice?

We forbid involuntary servitude and rightfully object to taxation without representation but let one person get serious with their clear defiance to such treatment and threaten to divorce themselves from the oppression, harming the union, and they all of a sudden become the threat? Is there no relief for an injured and abused victim? Elections you say? Become a democracy you say? Let 51% rule the other 49% you say?

We can peacefully decent but not too much, right? How and why does loyalty and patriotism to your nation’s founding principles become widely viewed as insurrection?

“Separate but equal” is the often criticized term, wrongly accused of being rooted in racism when it is more clearly rooted in our own individual rights. Under our union of states we are and were meant to be separate but equal. “Equal” in the eyes of the federal government, is to show no favoritism to one state over another in adjudicating disputes between them. Yet they are sovereign, free to otherwise compete with one another, their people freely moving about in support of that state that most reflects our preferred conditions for happiness.

Is it not proper, that we can enter into a contract and it become null, if breached by the signers, and seek court enforced remunerations against the violating party? By this measure, is it not also proper that upon decades of merciless violations of the Constitution which they alone approved would seek relief as sovereign members from that union? When if not under such circumstances are states superior to that which they created? It defies logic that parties to a contract creating something cannot also de-create that something when it no longer serves the agreed upon best interests of the parties that created it, or as they say, “no longer functions as the founders intended”.  The concept of willful consensual participation in an atmosphere of unilateral and widespread abuse only goes so far. Redress of grievances was one of the reasons we declared independence from Great Britain.

So, while I am not at all in favor of secession or any dissolution of our republic, I am totally in favor of reviving the contract as it is written and amended “from time to time”.

The “republic” that Benjamin Franklin alluded to is too sadly remote from the knowledge and hearts of her people. The 17th amendment struck a horrible blow to that republic and has resulted in the erosion of the states’ voice in checking and balancing the easily fanned emotions of the people. We are suffering from its approval and will re-balance when it is repealed.

Even the great capitalist favoring business magazine (Forbes) would not remain in an oft violated contract with anyone without seeking firm relief and justice under repeated violations.

Injunctive relief is the larger motive behind recent calls for secession. While the citizens’ general knowledge of our union is severely lacking, it may compel the states to act, being one of the guardians and responsible parties to the pact.

As long as our states elected legislatures operate within the confines of their respective state constitutions and seek that injunctive relief through state calls, we may yet curtail and retract the unauthorized actions of the federal government that brought us to this stage. It is not to bring about harm by the secession calls, quite the contrary! Saying that the union will be harmed or damaged is to rule out the attainment of due relief and balance that more properly existed and heal the nation by again putting the horse in front of the cart. The people’s natural rights are the source of authority for the states, and with the states, are the higher authority of the federal government, and in that order.

May we accomplish the objective of re-balancing post-haste! Then and only then will be see a free nation produce to its potential.

By: Gary Hardee

“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.”

Why this “statement of purpose” is not readily understood is likely the result of many factors, not the least of which are decades of cultural and educational decline, governments running and regulating the school systems, unionized government paid and approved school teachers, and thereby a steady rewriting of history to favor government actions that run counter to the very words of the Preamble!

So, in keeping with today’s words and communications standards I offer this interpretation as if from the founders:

“We, the writers of this Constitution, having deliberated extensively over every issue we think critical for the proper operating of a national government, having just endured a war and struggle for freedom over tyranny, and the earlier problems under the Articles of Confederation, are compelled by this 1st and present Constitutional Convention seeking to accomplish six main goals as noted below. We have combined all our wisdom, knowledge and experience to offer and propose this set of rules and guidelines to achieve them. They are:

1) To form a more perfect union of the states as they relate to each other, in our relations to each other and in our relations to other nations of the world.

2) Establish justice.

3) Insure domestic tranquility and peace – therefore the greatest happiness.

4) Provide for the means of common defense in times of attack or threats.

5) Promote the general welfare of all parties to this Constitution.

6) Secure the blessings of liberty, both now and to those yet unborn.

A stable and enduring government, built and operated for the benefit of her citizens generally, must remain small and restricted. We can think of no better way to accomplish this than to base its powers on the consent of the governed and limiting its activities to only those things that we individually have a natural right to do or more locally, the states.

There is a natural danger in governments, in establishing governments and in operating governments. Their tendency is to grow beyond their proper functions and to become instruments of legal plunder and turn into tyranny. Vigilance, our fellow citizens, is the price of freedom and if you think that you can sit on your laurels, generation after generation, and shirk this duty of vigilance and remain free – you are sadly mistaken!

We have taken great pains to accomplish the six goals above. We’d like to point out that they are all inclusive and considerate of each other, inseparable. For the record, a preamble is a statement of purpose, an overarching goal, an ideal end point and what we hope to accomplish. It does not grant any powers itself, only the body and subsequent amendments that are consistent with it will keep our republic true to its purposes. Let not any amendment be approved that does not conform to these goals or tyranny will be in your futures!

It is vital that you do not allow our words and intent to be misconstrued and distorted. Men will come along, seeking to undo and thwart our best laid restraints. It is the nature of man to live at the expense of others. History has instructed us to build a hardened wall against this nature of man. We have done that in our day to the best of our current abilities but it may not be perfect and as times change, new safeguards may be required through amendment. Be on guard and teach every generation accurate history so as to not fall prey to their ploys and evil designs. Heed our warning that the accumulation and concentration of powers in a single place is the very definition of tyranny.

Consider our time and what we have just endured. From our long struggles with abuses and arbitrary powers we have created and offer to a young nation this Constitution for you to improve at necessary times by amendment. Let no one assume powers not specifically delegated or that run counter to the preamble.

We wish every succeeding generation great wisdom and character in the exercise of its self-interest. Maintain the atmosphere of personal liberties and personal responsibilities which are given to each from Divine Providence, not government.  Jealously guard your liberties or fall victim to the lowest desires of fallen man.”

Keeping it Real and Open – the Internet!

September 1, 2012

Like many of you around the world, I like the animating contest of freedom over the slavery of restrictions imposed on me by others. The lack of knowledge, even by the willful rejection of the truth, empowers enslavement ends. The ignorant and willfully ignorant are far more apt to swallow the deceptions of tricksters, con-artists, crooks, tyrants and collectivists.  “The truth shall set you free” is a well-known and accepted axiom, but for it to be fulfilled, it requires us to want truth and have the willingness to accept the transforming impact that comes along with it.

Restoring liberty will not be done from the top down but from the bottom up! Entrenched powers seldom want limits placed on them, but rather, more of the same.  Truth and knowledge breeds freedom, while deception and ignorance breeds tyranny – a tyranny that is sadly asked for by those who have allowed themselves to become dependent to the corrupting “system”.

Once you accept that evil men conspire to advance their personal agendas, that birds of a feather flock together and that those that want insulation from market competition will compromise most principles to have government do their dirty work, you begin to get a small sense of the long entrenched conspiratorial forces that must be vanquished. It is not an easy task, nor is it for the faint of heart. It will for now, likely cause you to lose more friends than gain them. Those you enlighten will forever express their thanks while others may become uncomfortable around you because they know they should be more active in opposing the evil you made them aware of.

To be a “dignitary” one should comport oneself in a dignified manner.  Desiring to assume and wield unauthorized power over the life and property of another makes man little short of a thief and con-artist, or a would-be tyrant.  Collectivists and would-be tyrants cannot qualify as being worthy of the title “dignitary”.

The people of Earth live in truly exciting, if not hard times.  A time in which, thanks mostly to the growing and widespread use of the internet, mankind is more able to communicate with each other. Therefore they are breaking from the old mediums of biased media, prominent collectivist think tanks and book publishers, entrenched left-wing college professors, and the most destructive of all – our national system of “public schools”.

What does inadequate, insufficient and deliberately withheld knowledge give to the solving of any problem?  Nothing! Ignorance contributes nothing to freedom, however, knowledge does.  Ignorant and free can never be.  If you don’t recognize the previous sentence as a famous saying – you may be ignorant.  Don’t feel bad, we are all ignorant (lack knowledge) in some area.  I am not condemning general ignorance but rather the widespread resistance to certain knowledge and vital truths.

Provided that the internet remains open and uncontrolled; a virtual information anarchy, a place where information is made available and shared openly, we will by osmosis learn to think and reason on our own and to throw off preposterous notions and deliberate propaganda. Frauds will be discovered and so will time-honored principles.  The internet’s openness, while chaotic, will be freedom’s salvation if man steps up to influence its destiny.  While “Net Neutrality” and other such schemes to limit or restrict the free flow of communications serve only tyrants, it is readily apparent that putting the technology “Jeanie” back in the bottle will be highly improbable.

I believe we are beginning to see the gradual rising tide of truth and therefore freedom, not just in the U.S. but in Europe and elsewhere. I believe that freedom will ultimately win, even as it exposes certain false “conservatives” of today. The individual will again be respected and contracts upheld. The occasional “dust storm”, while likely, will not be blinding.

The generally accepted concept that there are only two sides to an argument is beginning to be seriously challenged by this open information exchange.  People and belief systems are not as complex as one might think.  No one likes a thief.  No one likes a thug.  No one likes a murderer. We may disagree about what to do, but we are on the same side of the issue.

We know there are liberal-conservatives as well as conservative-liberals for instance. This is not news. What really is news is that because the internet allows for greater unregulated communication, both sides are starting to form alliances to fight for commonly held issues.  It’s not the answer but it is a start.

We know there are “anti-war” Republicans and Democrats that see no sense continuing to wage the “war on drugs” or other politically driven wars.  We are discovering and bridging common ground and beginning to grow a backbone for resistance to certain collectivist and authoritarian policies and laws.  The growth of this much-needed “backbone” may be painfully slow, but it does have the potential for rapid manifestation as enlightenment spreads.

Robert Welch said in 1958: “All we must find and use and build to win is a sufficient understanding, while there is still time”.  Many citizens, from the 50’s to the 80’s rang the alarm bells and provided resistance to communism, collectivism, fiat money, debt and deficits, globalism and the U.N.’s military goals.  I thank them and honor their sacrifices. Their efforts may not have fully awakened freedom from her “comatose” state but those dutiful citizens may have kept her alive long enough for the internet “defibrillator” of today to play its role.

Any individual, group, leader, agency or non-governmental agency, bureaucrat or politician that favors controls on the internet is not the friend of freedom.

Real Choice, Real Serious, Real Scary!

In his June 27, 2012 blog entry entitled “Deep Concerns about the Media Should Romney Win”, Rodney Page, author of the to be released book, “Powers Not Delegated”, he lays out his concerns regarding the tricks and tactics of the dominant liberal media.

See his blog here:
http://blog.powersnotdelegated.com/2012/06/27/deep-concerns-about-the-media-should-romney-win.aspx

His points are well taken and I don’t take issue with the bulk of his points. It’s a worthy read for those who truly value their vote this November!

Perhaps Mr. Page will approve of my comments or maybe he won’t. But since we now have the power of the internet, our voices cannot be silenced if we take time to bypass MSM outlets and take our statements directly to the people.  So, here is my response for your consideration.

The deception that Romney is significantly “better” or “diametrically opposed” to Obama is a scam and a lie. Both are government operatives and “managers”. Both have clear records that prove it. Obama is perhaps a more strident and blatant radical, even the label of Marxist I can accept. But Romney will serve the same globalist interests that Obama does. The wars, undeclared, will continue wherever the eastern liberal establishment (the Insiders) want them to occur.

If you vote for Romney and he wins, don’t expect much better due to the backers that are promoting his candidacy. I’m not talking about the local voter who can’t stand Obama and want him out. Otherwise known as the ABO crowd. I’m talking about the same ones who gave us H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and even Jimmy Carter as well.

No discussion of the cure is helpful unless one first recognizes the real “kingmakers” that are giving us false choices to begin with.

Only a candidate that wants a return to individual freedom and a limited government based on the restrictions imposed by the US Constitution will bring us out of the socialist quagmire we find ourselves in today. Romney will not do it! His false “conservatism” coupled with his highly liberal record in Massachusetts should be proof enough for any brain ruled by common sense.

I do not question the good intentions of the vast majority of Romney supporters but I do have grave concerns over their apparently flawed hope the he will truly side with the Constitution.

There is only one man that has proven his worthiness of the Presidency but he is not the Insider’s choice! Thus we see the media “blackout” and steady promotion of almost any other. Just as in 2008, we again are not allowed to hear equally from Ron Paul. The Insiders have successfully scared the Republican base into avoiding him in favor of another neo-con “repeat” and possible defeat rather than recognize that his honesty and character would surely win over the dishonest collectivism of Obama.

So! Why is the media silencing him by  ignoring and lampooning him? Why isn’t he being interviewed honestly and with respect, on the national news shows? His predictions, well in advance of housing crisis alone, should propel him to “expert” status, and it has if you ask many media types, off the record.

If you want a President who is consistently on the side of the people and their labors, who understands well the dynamics of markets and the downfalls of debt and continual wars, who can move us toward sound money and reduced inflation and reduce our destructive entangling alliances the founders warned so often about, etc., your only choice is to vote for Ron Paul in November no matter what!

The collectivism of Obama will not be stopped by Romney. We must elect more Congressmen to DC that are much like Ron Paul so that no matter who we are forced to accept for President, funding can be denied for all unconstitutional activities of the federal government.

The people must rise with a backbone and throw out those who have proven records of creating more and more laws and job destroying regulations that are clearly not authorized activities of the fed.

“We get the government we deserve”, is generally true. But will we deserve better this time around? Will we be wiser? Or will we make another stupid mistake?
