America Lives Only By Our Will

“The people made the Constitution, and the people can unmake it”

“The people made the Constitution, and the people can unmake it. It is the creature of their own will, and lives only by their will.” — John Marshall, fourth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court

The U.S. Constitution, and in turn America itself, as John Marshall stated, survives only by our will as a nation. Our forefathers forged this nation out of their own blood. They dedicated their sacred honor in its defense. They asked the creator of the universe to aid them. As these men were sworn to the noble cause of freedom, others today are just as dedicated to the opposite – its destruction. Bilderberg member, Trilateral Commission founder and sworn enemy of America David Rockefeller certainly has the will to work day in and day out — and with great pleasure — to, in his words, “…work against the best interests of the United States…”

When it comes to the will of America; have we lost the true meaning of how valuable freedom is? Have we lost the knowledge that our forefathers possessed that threats to our liberty will never cease; that men’s hearts are weak and easily corrupted by power; that once unrestrained power — which the constitution seeks to bar — manifests itself fully, the most horrific bondage imaginable always clamps down on a once free people?

Has the will of America been broken? Perhaps as a nation we’ve lost sight of our true enemies. Perhaps too many love material wealth greater than their freedom. America is in the crosshairs of the global elite. We’re offered convenient distractions to move our attention away from the cold reality of our situation. The rigged game of red vs. blue keeps many still mesmerized.

Perhaps as a nation we need to regain our perspective and rearrange our priorities. What comes first? Your new car? Your family? Your money? Your freedom? Without freedom and liberty, prosperity and the milk and honey that comes with it dries up like precious water in a ravenous drought.

The U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights has been ravaged, with recent attacks decimating large portions of both.

The President of the United States recently granted the himself the powers of a dictator in times of a declared emergency. Michael Hayden, the new CIA director stated that the 4th amendment of the Constitution does not include the legal statue of probable cause. The John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007 gives the President the authority to strip governors of their right to deny troops being sent to their respective states to engage in domestic law enforcement.

Not all hope is lost.

Those who have taken on the task of trying to face such seemingly insurmountable odds know that at times one can get a bit overwhelmed. Take Texas ranger Capt. McDonald’s ever-truthful words to heart: “No man in the wrong can stand up against a fellow that’s in the right and keeps on a-comin’.”

The people are starting to wake up to the realities of our situation. Not everyone has seen the light yet, but, my fellow patriots, our numbers are strong and growing. There remains a dedicated remnant of Americans who have the spirit of freedom still in their hearts. Our destiny is in our hands, and we’ve decided to stand on our feet rather than beg on our knees. We can’t fight city hall, so we’re told. The truth is we can fight, and we can win!

One man giving hope to the gathering resistance is Congressman Ron Paul, who is running for President in 2008. His campaign has depended on the grassroots support base that he has garnered over his years as a consistent and dedicated Congressman. Without his supporters, the establishment media would have silenced him long ago, effectively removing him from the collective conscience of America. We have defeated efforts on part of the establishment to do so, and Paul’s message of freedom and personal liberty is spreading.

“Yet we shall endure,” Ethan Page wrote to Polly Knowles, “because what we fight for is indestructible. Though we, through our bodies’ feebleness, succumb to hunger and to cold; though some of us fall prey to littleness of heart and the weakness of our souls and turn traitor, freedom cannot be destroyed. It may be that we shall be crushed here in the valley of our anguish; but should we fail, afterwards, our sons shall rise up; and their sons after them, if need be; generation upon generation until the last visage of despotism shall have vanished from the earth. For this is the meaning of America: That every where men shall stand up tall in liberty, proud in human dignity; this we have written with our blood upon the snows at Valley Forge: that until, which God forbid, she be destroyed, America shall remain the implacable foe of tyranny in all ages, anywhere upon the earth….And America shall not be vanquished, for she is liberty’s body; and freedom is her soul.”

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, then go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsel or arms, crouch down and lick the hands which feed you, may your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” –Samuel Adams

It’s up to you, this grand experiment called America is a creature of your own will as a citizen. Sure, You can take the easy road and undo the work of our forefathers with little effort; submit, bow down and lick the boots of your master. It’s that simple. Or, you may choose to resist those who would enslave America. In the end the consequences of compliance to tyranny are often far more gruesome than that of resistance.
