Caution! Impasse ahead! Constitutional Showdown on the horizon! (A Texan’s commentary on a national solution)
That’s right! We Americans are heading, at an exponential rate of speed, toward a point when we have to decide whether or not we will continue on the path our founding fathers charted. So far, we have an obstinate Congress, a supreme court that won’t demand an original birth certificate from our current President, and a President that authorizes monies to give to foreign countries for the purpose of drilling offshore when he will not endorse our own domestic drilling, and a federal government that refuses to take action and enforce the laws dealing with immigration and illegal aliens.
Over and over again, we see our elected leaders making decisions that help grow the federal government and its intrusive power into our lives and attempt to regulate affairs that lie outside of their enumerated powers. Many can choose to ignore the warning signs, but those of us who value freedom and liberty sense a crucial moment in American history for correcting an unconstitutional course.
We need to restore The Constitution! But how do we do this? Some suggest a national referendum. Others suggest a citizen’s Federal Grand Jury. What means are available to “we the people” for holding our elected officials accountable? These are the leaders who swore by an oath of office to preserve, protect, and defend the United States Constitution.
Perhaps we could begin at the local level of government and begin rallying our fellow neighbors, our local citizens, and all who live in our city or county to begin a movement to restore The Constitution by vetting and putting forth candidates who have either a track record of voting conservatively or who exhibit lives and actions that support our original form of government. We need to have term limits for those in office and we need to decide the number of terms for each office. Then we need to make whomever we place in office aware of the legal requirement to preserve, protect, or defend our state and federal constitutions.
We need a re-education of American citizens on the importance of every person’s participation in helping to keep our republic as it was established by our founding fathers.
Some things we could begin to establish are as follows;
Make a national law to have all school curriculums offer a mandatory course of American Government and return to textbooks the eviscerated sections that teach our true history as a Christian nation and the original intentions of our founding fathers as they wrote in historical papers. The chief aim would be to give students a clear and accurate history that explains the development and architecture of the United States Constitution.
We need to setup rules and regulations for eligibility and qualification for continuance of the United Nations to exist here on our soil and to operate within the scope and bounds of the United States has set for them.
We need to erect a border wall along our southern border and enforce the existing immigration laws for illegal aliens.
We need to disband any organization that exists on our soil that supports our enemies.
We need to dismantle national education agencies and leave those duties to the individual states.
We need to redevelop social security.
We need to redevelop Medicare and Medicaid.
We need to increase spending on our federal military.
We need to deport any illegal aliens here on our soil.
We need to cut spending and taxes.
If we are unable to salvage our United States government, then Texans should have the right to throw off such government and establish a new government which may include national sovereignty with Texas being its own country.
