A Scout is Reverent

REJOICE! Today is a good day. Today, Our Constitution STILL STANDS, our Rule of Law still reigns SUPREME! The balance conceived over 200 years ago still weathers the storms. Liberty still stands to fight another day!

Even as our enemy celebrates victory with a PUPPET in power! Truly, could you have imagined this, 20 years ago… 30 years ago? To pose such a theory would have turned the faces of generals white.

BUT THEY HAVE NOT WON! The fight STILL rages. Our Bill of Rights still ensures it! Yes, the enemy has positioned the battlefield within our operational space, within our system of governance itself. BUT… they failed to see the GENIUS of the system. The absolute universal balance. The careful consideration the Framers of the Constitution weighed their conception of governance upon.

The Framers were not simple people! They were wealthy, world travelers, and studied text from nations across the world. The study of systems of governance that failed thousands of years before, produced ANSWERS as to why and how. Finding answers to the questions raised by those failures, would need a Revolutionary approach. A system of self-rule, but acknowledging the nature of Man itself.

How to create a secular system of governance with a “religious/biblical” execution of Justice? It is a system with NO State religion. NO test or requirement of religious faith. But, BOY! If you look REAL CLOSE… maybe squint just a little…

This is no coincidence! Unfortunately, many religious zealots use this as evidence to support the idea that the Framers REALLY wanted this to be a Christian nation. Many of those same people fail to realize Jesus would have studied the religious texts of his time, and the text that came before those… some of which we might not even know existed! There are ancient religious texts that predate The Bible by thousands of years. ALL of them have wise teachings. ALL of them helped shape what would one day become the ACTIONS and teachings written about hundreds of years later. Both the good lessons, captured and saved, and the bad lessons, not recounted but remembered and used as guideposts in the future.

To learn, and create a BETTER WAY.

The Framers of OUR Constitution took this into consideration as they worked to create a new form of government. To ensure a UNIVERSAL sense of Justice. NOT simply a system of right and wrong, but a set of Laws in accordance with the Laws of Nature. A system in balance eternally.

And today, CELEBRATE IT!🎉 Because it IS official… “IT’S ALIVE!”🇺🇸

It is HERE, in our nation’s darkest hours, we can see the brilliance radiating out. STILL STANDING as a beacon to ALL who yearn to live FREE! Because we live within it, we have forgotten how BEAUTIFUL the light can be. Because we still stand, we know it is NOT our darkest day. Here, standing upon the precipice… if we dare stick out our neck, just a little… we can see how far down this hole we COULD fall.

Imagine an election, similar to 2016, but the roles REVERSED. If Hillary Clinton had won the election by Electoral College and Donald Trump had won the popular vote by MILLIONS.

… do you think Donald Trump would concede and go back to Land Developement?

Look at the publicly reported propaganda campaign launched on the American Electorate. If Donald Trump LOST the Electoral College vote but won the popular vote, he would have taken the whole thing to court. Some of the “irregularities” we  know of now have been reported AFTER Inaguration Day.

ALL of the Presidential Election Laws that have NEVER been tried in a Court of Law stand NAKED to attack via a candidate who challenges the results of an election. The length of time to properly adjudicate these cases, as demonstrated in the 2000 election, could surpass the certification date. Worse yet, evidence could lead to a challenge in the middle of a sitting President’s term.

The Courts would decide.

The evidence presented might not compel ONE court to side with the candidate, but imagine on appeal… in a 5-4 Supreme Court decision. A SITTING PRESIDENT, removed from office. Replaced by a candidate INSTALLED by the Courts… The danger of untried, undefined Constitutional Law.

Hillary Clinton has every right to challenge the results of the 2016 election. Just looking at the de-classified account of events, imagine what is yet unknown… would she? Of course not. She is a PATRIOT, who SERVES this country with HONOR and would not want to see such a horrifying outcome.

Would Donald Trump? He LOSES the Electoral vote, disappears into his golden penthouse for SIX MONTHS, then emerges with a full beard, wearing a flannel shirt, preaching that we need to STOP GLOBAL WARMING… right.

The path has been walked. The trail has been made. It is not a question of IF… the path will be followed again. If it’s not already in the works, it will be someday. We ignore this FATAL FLAW at our own peril! It is the crack in the finish, the rust below the surface. The Classic piece of machinery DOOMED by a lack of desire to see it fixed, or a lack of knowledge, unaware there is still more work to be done. “If only we had known…”

We celebrate Our Constitution, not simply because it is ours. We celebrate Our Constitution because it is a document WORTHY of our CELEBRATION! We must upgrade the outdated firewall, the flawed security system called The Electoral College. History shows us the FLAWS… there is a BETTER WAY.

Cookie-Cutter Tin-Pot Dictatorship

Imagine the possible outcome of that… Isolated pockets of ideologically pure groups, spread over a VAST distance and unable to organize. Barriers erected, both physical and mental, stopping the free flow of ideas and the communion of countrymen, matriarchs and mothers.

Laws passed to suppress one group of people are seen as frivolous and not impactful in ONE city, and in another… families are terrorized and live in fear, constantly keeping watch, to avoid being destroyed by a family member being deported to a country THEY’VE NEVER KNOWN.

But, that city that does not fear the unfair deportation of “OTHERS”, faces other laws that can destroy THEIR way of life. To artificially shift the judgement, shift the blame… to speak out against oppression is difficult to justify when “money is TIGHT”, and “good jobs are hard to find”…

“Keep your head down, don’t draw attention, and this, TOO, shall pass.”

When MOUTHS need fed and BILLS need paid, that fear of losing it ALL focuses the mind… just as intended.

The only hope for anyone trying to make ends meet, especially with dependents, is the STRENGTH found in a team. Two people, COMMITTED to making a family successful, working to make things better for themselves and also, the future…

“Let’s make sure HALF of the population can only make $0.75 on the dollar compared to the OTHER HALF.” — Lawmakers.

And as we see more families with TWO PARENTS working full-time jobs just to make ends meet, in the middle of it all stands the FUTURE of Our Nation, watching the insanity and only wanting ONE THING- To live in PEACE with their parents in safety.

But the answers they are given don’t seem to fit in with the realities they face. The anxiety at home due to the stress of the family, the anxiety at school due to the constant fear of the unknown assailant.

 

Q: Who knows BEST how to provide the safety these children need at school?

A: Wealthy, geriatric men in the District of Columbia who DEPEND on money from gun lobbies to get re-elected.

 

Q: Who knows BEST how to break the cycle of BOOM and BUST our financial institutions are ENABLING? When they SPECULATE on barrels of FUEL, or WHEAT for our BREAD, or CORN for our CATTLE… Who should be TRUSTED to legislate a SOUND framework, to protect BOTH the people AND the financial institutions from Criminal Behavior?

A: The ELECTED OFFICALS who rely on DONATIONS FROM the SAME financial institutions, and oil companies, and Agra-business. DONATIONS from organizations composed of a… Complex. Of producers and manufactures who supply the Military and Law Enforcement communities… FOR THEIR RE-ELECTION.

 

“But… this is an OUTRAGE! We should PROTEST!”

And, as we saw during the Occupy movement, Laws have been created to keep THAT to a minimum. Any susstained effort make REAL and LASTING fiscal policy change happen in the interest of THE PEOPLE is SILENCED by any means necessary.

 

“We’ll camp RIGHT HERE on this PUBLIC LAND until…”

“… that’s no longer public land, move along.”

 

So it seems pointless to SCREAM and SPEAK OUT, as a single mother loses her home to the bank through foreclosure, and as a grandmother is tossed from her home, with so little to fall back on… After a while, the story is repeated. A new face, another community. Houses boarded up, cul-de-sacs empty. “Things were just starting to turn around from the LAST TIME this happened.”

… and the time before that.

In times past… yes, back in my day… the knowledge of the past was a privileged resource, available only to those with the means to attain it. So, children with parents who had education and upward mobility would naturally be exposed to knowledge and receive guidance, but also take them TO THE KNOWLEDGE… at the library.

The ability to provide the opportunity to learn was dependent on the knowledge of the parents. Children of single-parent homes, or parents with minimal education, work MORE HOURS and have LESS TIME to devote to important support for their kids… and the CYCLE CONTINUED.

Today, the KNOWLEDGE OF THE PAST is fully available in the POCKET of EVERY CHILD. Where, as a child, I would ask questions of my parents and if they didn’t know, the out-of-date encyclopedia from 1971 MIGHT have the answer… The knowledge known only to a few in times past, is now TRIVIAL PURSUIT to the youth today. The political hypocrisy of the past is simply OUTDATED RHETORIC in the eyes of a kid with an iPhone-

 

“Voter fraud is a threat to democracy!”

“… I have FIVE SOURCES that say THAT is a lie.”

 

“Abstinence is the best way to prevent STDs and unwanted pregnancy.”

“… statistics show that EDUCATION starting at an early age AND safe sex practices work more effectively… FALSE.”

 

“A ‘Good Guy’ with a gun is the answer to a ‘Bad Guy’ with a gun.”

“Hold on. Let me ask David Hogg about that one… he just said “that’s bullshit”.

 

The advancement of technology has SKEWED the playing field. The “adults” now have the knowledge and skills of a child, and the child now has the knowledge and TOOLS of a Statesman or a Diplomat.

The ability to deceive and successfully manipulate messages to fit different audiences has become an Historical Artifact, a relic of a time gone by. To “play to the base” inorder to secure a primary nomination, then swing your political views back to a moderate stance for the general election, is FANTASY in the era of live stream, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram.

GOOD RIDDANCE! to the liar and manipulator! Two-faced and deceptive, they play their games and keep score with the LIVES lost. They pick up the pieces that were lost by families who’s lives have been shaken and destroyed, put them back together, then sell them to the highest bidder… for personal gain.

And MOST of us can only GRIN and BEAR IT. Unable to do ANYTHING because we are the provider for a family, we swallow our pride… hoping to provide a strong foundation for OUR CHILDREN to one day RISE UP and DEMAND the change…

 

demand the change.
