Why is President Trump endorsing federal healthcare when it should be in the hands of the individual states?
We as Americans, continually allow the Federal Government to overstep their legal responsibilities and they cannot even do that right.
State legislators we meant to be the guardians of the people and their rights and interests. The continual encroachment of the federal government on the authority of the State governments needs to stop and we are the only ones who can demand this.
The continual manipulation of our taxes, paid to the state, then the state sends some to the Feds making them believe they have the right to “rule” not “govern” over us.
Are we a Constitutional Republic or a Kingdom? Today we are much closer to a Kingdom with those we elect ignoring what is best for Americans rather than letting our voices be heard. Our government is dirty, our laws are being ignored and the world is beside themselves watching us self-destruct.
There are many reasons why the STUDY of our Constitution has been taken out of our schools. It has been leveled to Civics’ and attached to Social Justice. How dare they?
You become a powerful and credible proponent of liberty the more you know about the specific details of the Constitution. You do not have to be a Constitutional attorney but you must go beyond just reading the Constitution and actually study it. Make sure your children and grandchildren know what the Constitution actually means in regard to their Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Instead of emptying the swamp it continues to grow with members of the CFR in high places and the new hires in the Federal Department of Education making it look like a roadmap to the Bush Cabal in control.
Having voted for Trump, I see a recurrence of the Reagan years – Promises ignored – Promises re-shaped leaving the American people stripped of their Constitutional Rights and pushing more and more to feudalism.
Greed and egos bring about the return of what we have today as government. You may believe you are free, but you are far from it when illegals have more rights than a natural born citizen.
Illegals have murdered whole families and then get 2 years in prison only because the crime was committed in a state that has assumed the role of a “Sanctuary State” over the Federal Government. If for example, California cares more about its illegal citizens than their legal ones, why don’t they break away and create their own country. Make sure you take Chicago, Tallahassee and Baltimore with you because there, even your States rights are being violated.
Our government is allowing PAID thugs to destroy our historical statues all under “Free Speech”. Innocent Americans have been jailed and murdered all because our government wanted their land and/or the minerals on them. Political crooks are allowed to walk the streets with more evidence against them than a Chicago thug gang member.
Human Trafficking and Pedophilia has been allowed to become a “norm” and if this is not so where are the arrests of those on the top? You think Americans are not involved in Pizzagate any more than they were the Nebraska Scandal or Mena, AR that led right to the White House?
Americans want to feel comfortable and cushy and tend to ignore the truth believing the left when the truth is told that it is nothing but “conspiracy” talk. This is how a government walks their citizens down the path to destruction, slowly over time so you forget the past deceits.
Have you truly forgotten “they” are Data Mining everything about you and your family? Have you forgotten the proven locations of FEMA camps and trainloads of caskets under Obama’s reign?
You believe the electing of a “non-politician” as the President means you are to stop watching and taking care of your own country. It is we who elect those who are ruling over us.
In the 32-page handwritten Farewell Address of George Washington to the Congress and the American people, Washington urged Americans to avoid excessive political party spirit and geographical distinctions. In foreign affairs he warned, “to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.” Yes, I know you are going to tell me that after the Industrial Revolution we couldn’t do that? Why not – because the current elected government made it so? So, we now have a treaty with Iran that they have already broken and they have all but ruined us in regard to trade with the TPA and many got paid millions for their votes. By the middle of the 1800’s our government had so turned away from all that Washington stood for, that the ruination of the country was eminent. In part from his address:
- …The name of American, which belongs to you in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles. You have in a common cause fought and triumphed together; the independence and liberty you possess are the work of joint counsels, and joint efforts of common dangers, sufferings, and successes.
- … In contemplating the causes which may disturb our Union, it occurs as matter of serious concern that any ground should have been furnished for characterizing parties by geographical discriminations, Northern and Southern, Atlantic and Western; whence designing men may endeavor to excite a belief that there is a real difference of local interests and views. One of the expedients of party to acquire influence within particular districts is to misrepresent the opinions and aims of other districts. You cannot shield yourselves too much against the jealousies and heartburnings which spring from these misrepresentations; they tend to render alien to each other those who ought to be bound together by fraternal affection. (Washington is alluding to Political parties.)
- …To the efficacy and permanency of your Union, a government for the whole is indispensable. No alliance, however strict, between the parts can be an adequate substitute; they must inevitably experience the infractions and interruptions which all alliances in all times have experienced.
- … Respect for its (Constitution) authority, compliance with its laws, acquiescence in its measures, are duties enjoined by the fundamental maxims of true liberty. The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government. But the Constitution which at any time exists, till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all. The very idea of the power and the right of the people to establish government presupposes the duty of every individual to obey the established government.
- …All obstructions to the execution of the laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency. They (political parties) serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels and modified by mutual interests.
- However, combinations or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.
- I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the State, with particular reference to the founding of them on geographical discriminations. Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally.
- This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.
- The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.
- Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight), the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.
- … There is an opinion that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the administration of the government and serve to keep alive the spirit of liberty. This within certain limits is probably true; and in governments of a monarchical cast, patriotism may look with indulgence, if not with favor, upon the spirit of party. But in those of the popular character, in governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged. From their natural tendency, it is certain there will always be enough of that spirit for every salutary purpose. And there being constant danger of excess, the effort ought to be by force of public opinion, to mitigate and assuage it. A fire not to be quenched, it demands a uniform vigilance to prevent its bursting into a flame, lest, instead of warming, it should consume.
- A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position.
- … Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. (So America, how has the 45 Goals of the Communist Manifesto taken over our country?)
- … a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification. … And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity; gilding, with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation.

Americans, you should read this document often as with the Constitution to refresh your minds as to how we have been taken, who played a role in this corruption and to what part, we, as individuals allowed it to happen. One man alone, whether a good man or bad, cannot repair this country alone.
Correction must come to our demise.
