Perhaps a dozen times every day, there is a message sent to me from any number of people and more than a few publications of how bad our current President is – if he actually won the election. He is called evil. Pictures of him with horns and a tail are passed around the internet, and sometimes the same message is sent by several of my friends and acquaintances. All of this is highly appreciated. For someone to send me a message is a compliment. But none of it is news.
In 2000, a man calling himself Barack Obama said in a televised interview that the Constitution is an “impediment to government”. He was absolutely correct.
The people of the British Colonies in the New World were tired of the impediments of the King of England that were imposed from the other side of a huge ocean. Fifty-two men signed a document declaring their independence from the king. It was a bold move to which those few brave or foolish men dedicated their fortunes, their sacred honor, and their very lives. This stellar event occurred on July 4th, 1776. Subsequent to the Declaration, and after much verbal wrangling, a Constitution was agreed upon. They compromised among themselves but would not compromise with the man who would keep them in chains.
The founders of this nation were the first to declare their individual rights and powers. But those rights and powers are universal, not reserved only for the Americans. “… all men are created equal…”-The Declaration of Independence.
Every line in the Constitution for the United States of America was designed to impede the government. The government being formed was to be limited in power and scope. Even the physical geographical area was limited. The power to manufacture (coin) and regulate the value of an exchange unit was granted to the new government. American dollars were put into circulation in the form of gold and silver coin. Gold and silver have been accepted as currency since the discovery of those two very beautiful and precious metals. Other nations, as well as individuals, would accept the medium for their goods and services.
An arbiter was needed to settle conflicts that might arise between and among the various States that would have memberships in the union (and with governments outside the union.) Each State had a method of settling disputes within their own borders, and even subdivisions within each State had their own methods of settling disputes and conduct at a local level. The people at the local levels granted to the State legislative bodies, duly elected, a bit of their power to act on their behalf. The power went from the people to a State and then to the federal government. At each level, the powers were limited. That was the beauty of the new government. The ultimate power was held by the people who were being governed, and the power was held jealously, in the beginning.
The impediment to an all-powerful government was the Constitution itself.
From the outset, though, the representatives of the bankers went to work to deprive the people of the power of creating and controlling their own money. Alexander Hamilton wanted a national bank with the power to control all of the money. He wanted a central bank that had the power to create fiat money. The power to create our own exchange unit based on a thing of value was a powerful notion that drove the bankers of the time mad.
Abraham “Dishonest Abe” Lincoln started the downfall of the union with the Civil War. The States had the right to secede from the union, but Lincoln interfered with the power of the States to exercise the right. The Federal Government started enacting laws that interfered with the daily lives of the people in the States (and the operation of the States.) Until the election of Woodrow Wilson, the people won many of the battles fought to continue the Union as it was initially intended. But Wilson’s actions on behalf of the International Bankers put another nail in the coffin that was being constructed to hold the Union formed in 1776. The impediment was being destroyed.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, with the New Deal and his relentless assault on the Constitution for nearly sixteen years, destroyed the impediment completely. The people didn’t realize what had occurred because the government itself was lying to the people and telling them that the impediment was still in force – and it appeared to be so. Each and every President and Congress since have done their respective parts to bring about the complete destruction of the Union of 1776.
So the man who calls himself Barack Obama was right. The Constitution was an impediment to government. And the government that has taken over our country is an impediment to our freedom. There is one thing that the government doesn’t quite seem to get: the power still lies with the people. It may be that the Constitution no longer impedes the government, but the people are still here to impede what is in control today. And we will. Have no doubt about that. There are enough of us who have become aware of the situation (and more are waking up daily), and the Union created in 1776 will rise from the ashes that the International Bankers have turned our country into. We, you and I, are the impediment that this current crop of evildoers will rue. Get active; do something to take control of the government that is interfering with your freedoms.
