"The story of big government in America begins in the Progressive Era, stretching from the 1880s through World War I. Enamored with 19th-century European historicist philosophy and unwilling to hold any truths as self-evident, American Progressives thought the natural right principles of the Constitution represented the greatest obstacle to political "progress" and "evolution." In place of the Constitution, Progressivism proposed an administrative state whose purpose would be the unending quest of evolutionary "progress" and whose powers therefore would be unlimited.More than anyone, Woodrow Wilson advanced the new Progressive theory of human nature and human institutions and the corresponding Progressive critique of the principles of the American Founding and the Founders' Constitution. Wilson, who was president of Princeton and of the American Political Science Association before becoming President of the United States, was the first Chief Executive to openly criticize the Constitution, once comparing it to "political witchcraft." So hostile was he to the self evident truths of the Founding that in a 1911 address he remarked, "if you want to understand the real Declaration of Independence, do not repeat the preface."Wilson above all others deserves credit for the notion that the Constitution is a "living" or "evolving" document. As he wrote in 1908, "Government is not a machine, but a living thing. It falls, not under the theory of the universe, but under the theory of organic life. It is accountable to Darwin." Insisting that the Constitution does not contain any theories or principles, Wilson argued that the Constitution has a "natural evolution" and is "one thing in one age, another in another." "Living political constitutions," he wrote, "must be Darwinian in structure and in practice.""
The preceding was an excerpt from Claremont Institute Fellow and author R. J. Pestritto it was so concise to the mindset and direction of Wooodrow Wilson and his autocratic mentality that I could not open this any better.
To destroy or recreate the "Living Version of the Constitution in a Darwinian fashion" the pre-amble is the sticking point, it is the most recognized and possibly the most mis-understood of all the guiding principles that are this document.
So lets review
" We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America"
So what does this mean to progressives and why do they feel obligated to rewrite is through constant legislation and amending? There is a loophole staring you in the face and they took advantage of this as is their nature to look for the weakest point and attack it. It is the General Welfare and the Establishment of Justice that opened the door for Social engineering programs!
The first ten amendments are the " Bill of Rights" and it is these core rights that the Socialists by all other names have failed to rewrite our basic rights into a socialist manifesto.
In the United States of America, the Bill of Rights is the name by which the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution are known. They were introduced by James Madison to the First United States Congress in 1789 as a series of articles, and came into effect on December 15, 1791, when they had been ratified by three-fourths of the States. Thomas Jefferson was a proponent of the Bill of Rights.
The Bill of Rights prohibits Congress from making any law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, forbids infringement of "...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms...", and prohibits the federal government from depriving any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law. In federal criminal cases, it requires indictment by grand jury for any capital or "infamous crime", guarantees a speedy public trial with an impartial jury composed of members of the state or judicial district in which the crime occurred, and prohibits double jeopardy. In addition, the Bill of Rights states that "the enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people," and reserves all powers not granted to the federal government to the citizenry or States. Most of these restrictions were later applied to the states by a series of decisions applying the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, which was ratified in 1868, after the American Civil War.
But when you read them they left something out, that these Progressive Socialists' have for over 100 years been attacking and using to implement their devious and effective take over of our government. None of the " Bill of Rights" address' the General Welfare clause in the pre-amble. For over 100 years every form of reform has been to provide for the under-privileged or the socially incapable or the destitute with no recourse or the down trodden masses yearning to be free! ( Remember it was the French that gave us miss Liberty)
To enslave a nation and create a Socialist country the Progressives have used these, the easiest to manipulate and program through providing them with their basic needs. Education, Sustenance, Shelter, Medicine, all of these have been paths to re-programming the citizens of this country into the populace of expectation that they need to get their agenda passed into law.
And now they are grasping onto the last great vestige of total control.
WHO LIVES AND WHO DIES!
Do Not for a moment think that this legislative attack is in the same Universe with the desire to improve anything other than their political gains! They are out to force your capitulation to either accept their totalitarian rule or DIE!
I have identified every lie that these Health Care Bills have had in them along with a lot of other people and the American people are waking up to the truth. But America without understanding the whys and the how's the attacks will never end.
Everyone in this country does have access to Emergency Health Care! No hospital emergency room can turn down a critically sick or injured person in this country and not face consequences that will shut their doors. It is a federal crime!
Anyone disabled for 2 or more years qualifies for early enrollment into Medicare and depending on their income Medicaid as well.
It is the money taken for the socialist welfare programs espoused by Wilson and instituted by
FDR and LBJ that are now bankrupting the system not health care costs or the uninsured. The monies spent on countless failed social reformation projects from 1965 forward have totaled Trillions of dollars and they still want more. They have spent every cent of the FICA tax accounts projected earnings for the next 30 years, THIS YEAR ALONE!
They have for 55 years and 4 generations enslaved an entire group of people.
They are stealing from everyone who currently or has in the past paid FICA taxes with the belief that those dollars were kept out from the general funds.
They lied and stole the money!
If I came through your door with a gun and did the same I would go to jail or hopefully you would SHOOT ME DEAD!
The Progressive and liberals of our government have STOLEN YOUR MONEY!
Yes they are guilty of theft and malfeasance and misconduct and treason, and yet they continue to steal more of our rights.
The right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness are part of our Declaration of Independence. If you read carefully no where does it say you are guaranteed to be happy, it says that you will live free to have the opportunity to accomplish whatever you dream within the law and not depriving others of the same. No where does it say that you are entitled to ANYTHING BUT The above! No where does it give your elected officials the right to steal from you, lock you up for no crimes or condemn you to death for no reason.
If they can pass the rest of their Progressive Socialist Agenda then guess what, it won't matter and they get off Scott free. It won't matter because from cradle to grave they will be in charge and they will provide everything to you and you will exist in their totalitarian state.
Which history has shown has done so well in Germany, Russia and the rest.
I for one will not allow that to happen in my lifetime without a second revolution.
