It can be easily argued that the most important component of any structure is the foundation. Every other component of the structure can only be as good as the underlying foundation. Therefore, the foundation must be level, square, and enduring, yet flexible enough to resist cracking and absorb subtle movements caused by changing conditions. Even the most well-engineered structure built on a poorly designed foundation will break down over time and eventually fail completely. On the other hand, a properly designed and built foundation will ensure that the structure built upon it will, given proper maintenance, remain functional indefinitely. So the first step in building a lasting structure is the establishment of a sound foundation, and the first step in establishing a sound foundation is a blueprint that clearly illustrates the design features and building specifications of that foundation.
Upon emerging from the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on September 18, 1787 Benjamin Franklin was asked “Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” to which Franklin responded “A republic, if you can keep it.” Franklin understood very well that this government “of the people, by the people, and for the people” would require engaged and involved citizens that understand how the system is intended to function. The people are the building material for the foundation of the republic and the blueprint for that foundation is the Constitution of The United States. As long as sufficient building material, in the form of engaged people, is met and the foundation is constructed in accordance with the design blueprint, the republic built upon it will endure.
Once a structure (or a republic) is established, maintenance becomes essential if the structure is to last. That is why sufficient drainage must be provided for a physical structure and that is why the founding fathers built in a means of modifying or amending the constitution, following established protocols, when necessary. The structure and especially the foundation must also be protected from damage by outside forces. If you knock a hole through the wall of your physical foundation, the structural integrity of the building will be compromised. Likewise, if you violate or disregard the foundational document of the republic, you compromise the integrity of the republic. The point is that whether you are talking about a physical structure or a constitutional republic, the foundation MUST be maintained and protected if they are to last.
The purpose of the government is nothing more and nothing less than to protect every citizen’s rights and liberties in accordance with the constitution. The purpose of the Constitution is to clearly enumerate the powers of government and define a compartmentalized structure where none of the three branches of government can make unilateral and unchecked decisions. If you have been paying any attention at all for the last few years, you already realize we have a huge problem. Today, the constitutional foundation of our republic has been severely compromised and the erosion of the foundation is like a cancer that threatens the continued existence of our once great republic.
One of the biggest threats of continued erosion is the so called Security and Prosperity Partnership or SPP. This plan also referred to as the North American Union or NAU is already well underway and involves the elimination of current American borders in exchange for a merger of Canada, Mexico, and the United States into a single entity much like the European Union, including the establishment of a common currency. These regional unions are merely stepping stones on the road towards world government or as George H.W. Bush once put it “A New World Order.” The goal of the New World Order is a global system that encapsulates economic, political, military, and corporate systems into one centrally controlled global tyrannical conglomerate.
Globalism threatens the very existence of sovereign, independent nations; in fact the two concepts are mutually exclusive. That is why we see US military oversees violating or threatening to violate the sovereign rights of foreign countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, and Iran, while our own borders remain unsecured with all manner of criminal elements literally pouring into the country. The U.S. government is threatening the existence of other sovereign nations, while at the same time facilitating the destruction of our own. If the “war on terror” was real, don’t you think U.S. troops would be better utilized securing our own borders?
The fact is, today we no longer have the representative government that our constitution described and our country has been hijacked by a cartel of globalist criminals who do not believe in or abide by our foundational document. When he entered office, GW Bush took the presidential oath of office (twice), which reads as follows:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
In a 2005 Oval office discussion, after being informed that some provisions of the so-called Patriot Act undermined the constitution, G.W. Bush replied “Stop throwing the Constitution in my face, It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”
This statement, more than any other I think, demonstrates the extent to which our foundation has eroded. When the president can make a statement like that and remain in office, something is very wrong. The republic of America is crumbling badly, almost ready to topple over and the American people hardly seem to notice. They are too busy with their own selfish and indulgent pursuits and don’t even realize that, just as Benjamin Franklin warned over 200 years ago, we have failed to keep our republic. The last few remaining remnants are being destroyed before our very eyes. Our middle class is being eliminated and America is being transformed into a third world country, complete with prison camps.
That is not to say we should surrender without a fight however. We must return to our constitutional foundation and be willing to, as they say in New Hampshire, “Live Free or Die.” It’s now or never folks, there isn’t much time left. Pray for America and support Ron Paul for president in 2008!
