“We the People” Need to Fight for a More Perfect Union!
By Dennis Jamison – 9/17/2020
Today is Constitution Day, also known as Citizenship Day. Yet, those good citizens who diligently obey the law and seek for an orderly and civil society are the ones who seem to be lost in the polarization and extreme divisiveness of the two major political parties. The flagrant violation of the rule of law is seen in the rise of anarchism on America’s city streets. What might be the stimulus behind that increase of young people marching or committing acts of violence against innocent civilians? Could it be an election year, and one intent of one Party is to bully and scare people to act against the goodness of their consciences — or to do nothing in the face of danger?
By the time of Constitution Day in 2020, citizens have witnessed in awe, the violation of the Constitution on a regular basis as Democrat leaders in cities and the Democrat state governors have violated the First Amendment rights of the citizens in their regions via the COVID-based lockdown orders. In hindsight, the draconian lockdowns may have helped limit the spread of the China virus initially, but scientific evidence revealed the virus is not as deadly as first feared. The false data collected by hospitals and medical authorities that led to false reporting of the death rate due to the China virus is appalling and has generated inaccurate public perceptions of danger.
By Constitution Day in 2020, citizens have witnessed the violation of the Constitution, as “protesters” and violent rioters rampaged through various Democrat-run cities (without any masks), yet the intolerance of religious gatherings became evident as with Pastor John MacArthur’s church in Southern California. Additionally, intolerance was on clear display recently in Seattle, Washington as a worship gathering was denied entrance to assemble peacefully in a public park.
Who pays the taxes to provide the upkeep of the park? It is those good citizens who diligently obey the law and yearn for an orderly and civil society. Who pays the taxes to provide the salaries of the city officials who denied the people to peaceably assemble in the park they pay the taxes to care for the park?
By Constitution Day in 2020, citizens have witnessed the violation of the Constitution as violent rioters rampaged through Democrat-run cities destroying private property without serious enforcement of the law. Taxpayers have every right to trust that public servants, whom they employ in their cities and states, would enforce the laws and maintain order and a civil society. Yet, such expectations can no longer be taken for granted under the Democrat leadership who pursue a different political agenda than genuine allegiance to the Constitution of the United States. Socialism is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution, and to the documents of the founding of this nation — especially the Declaration of Independence, which asserts the very basis of our God-given rights.
If intelligent people stand back to look in a more objective way at what the “Democratic” Party has morphed into, they would be forced to admit that this political party represents the interests of only their Party above the interests of the general public. What was that phrase in the Preamble? — To promote the general Welfare? To Democrats it translates into putting as many people on welfare as possible to ensure their dependence upon the government, which is the government using the money of the taxpayers to help the people who prefer to be dependent upon “the government,” which is actually “We the People,” those good citizens who diligently obey the law and strive for an orderly and civil society.
If intelligent people take a serious look at the current “Democratic” Party, they will see a political party that has morphed into a full socialist political party, which means that each and every aspect of the Preamble to the U.S. The Constitution is contorted into what such a Party has determined it to mean only from their political perspective. It is of no wonder that there are men who prefer to “identify” as women, and then expect those of the nation who are sane to accept their subjective reality. The Party is filled with these type of people. But, when applied to the Law of the Land, the Constitution is relative as well, just as the general welfare has been jammed into a very narrow set of parameters.
The efforts to insure domestic Tranquility, or to provide for the common defence, are also efforts that have been re-defined per the narrow definitions that Democrats have fabricated. Can the mayors of cities like Seattle, Portland, Chicago, or Washington, D.C. maintained “domestic tranquility” by permitting violent and destructive rioting in their cities, and with some individuals calling such reality a myth. The common defense has a direct bearing on protecting the citizens under their jurisdictions — all their citizens. From 2016, when Donald Trump’s supporters rallied for his candidacy, common defense only referred to the police protection or non-interference with the rioters who were trying to harm the non-Democrats. Truly this is a flagrant violation of the spirit of the Preamble.
It is evident that the key phrase the Democrats focus on is the point to establish Justice. But, for the Democrats, it is a question of Justice for whom? Time and again the justice they are advocating to provide is not for the entire community of people — Democrats in recent decades are much more focused on only justice for specific groups that will offer their allegiance to the Democrat leadership. The social justice warrior phenomenon has grown among the millennials, yet their intolerance of individuals who do not share their political ideology of socialism speaks volumes regarding the sheer hypocrisy of such views and behavior. Socialist societies in order to ensure justice for the believers, will serve plenty of injustice to those “non-believers” of socialist thought.
There is little possibility that socialism can secure the Blessings of Liberty to anyone, as it is practiced in an “infant” form, or the monstrous form of totalitarian communism. Such is the sad reality of socialism because all these variants are really good at would be in propagating propaganda and spewing empty Utopian promises. As human beings strain to be free, socialism has to resort to force to coerce people to accept the precepts of socialism, which can be any number of variations on a Marxist inspired theme. The irony with the Democrats, or Socialists, or Communists is that force, or coercion, is usually the only recourse to enforce people to follow the general or specific will of the Party.
The purpose behind the Constitution is expressed in the beginning of the Preamble: “in Order to form a more perfect Union…” Democrats, Socialists, or Communists will talk about a better form of government, yet freedom would not be ensured because the authority in a socialist system is concentrated in the “dictatorship of the proletariat,” and freedom is just another word to entice useful idiots to do what the Party wills. Not much critical thought is needed.
A good example can be seen in people who call themselves “freedom fighters” who have romanticized their “revolutions;” and yet, who create a centralized authoritarian political system over the dupes who have little clue as to what was happening to their countries. The pattern has been repeated over and over again in one country after another: China, North Korea, Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela to name current communist systems. The little freedom that exists is dependent upon whatever form the centralization of authority takes. But, where people had been free before, freedom had to be replaced by force. Unfortunately, where freedom is abused, force becomes necessary.
Socialism, Marxism, and Communism are the total inversion and subversion of a free society. They are all variants of political systems created through a false ideology that will never be compatible with America’s very existence based upon citizen’s God-given rights. The mere thought of such a thing is repulsive to atheistic systems based upon Marx’s ideology. Yet, without God-given rights, the Declaration is meaningless, and without the Declaration of Independence, there is no moral foundation for the U.S. Constitution. And, without the Constitution, there will be no U.S.A. And, without the U.S.A., there will no longer be a Free World. Those are a few good reasons for citizens to fight for the U.S. Constitution and remember Constitution Day.
