Our Constitution Needs ‘Self-Care’

Founding Defenders A Matter of Impeachment

Self-Care Awareness Month is a new Annual Observance in September…
Our Constitution also has a September anniversary… Sept. 17, 1789…
…Honor Both – Give Your Care and Attention…

Most Americans today have no idea how much they need Constitution-Care… most have no idea how far removed we are from its principles… it’s structure… it’s directives. Essentially Constitution-Care is the national version of Self-Care. When either is allowed to fall into a state of neglect, the consequences can become life-altering… even life-threatening.

Constitution-Care… much like personal Self-Care – is innate – when we are internally guided as to what each is, and how it should function. Each is derived from our most basic needs and desires… and both are in need of our attention today. Also, please remember that both require certain awareness’s to identify problems before they become life-altering.

John Trumbull’s 1819 painting, Declaration of Independence, depicting the five-man drafting committee presenting their work to the Congress. The painting can be found on the back of the U.S. $2 bill. The original hangs in the US Capitol rotunda. The five-man committee from left to right: John Adams, Roger Sherman, Robert R. Livingston, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin. Seated is John Hancock. Some believe the painting depicts Jefferson stepping on Adam’s feet symbolizing their political rivalry. Declaring independence from the crown in 1776 was considered a radical move with potentially dire consequences for those involved. The 56 men who signed the Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States (The Declaration of Independence), put their lives and livelihoods on the line for the cause of American independence, freedom, and liberty. Without their selfless actions, we would have nothing to celebrate as a nation on the Fourth of July or any other date.

Our current national tragedies are evidence of critical neglects and failures of the principles that created both the Declaration of Independence and our Constitutional Republic. Those faith-based hopes and beliefs galvanized “We the People” into a nation where individual opportunities and responsibilities flourished.

I contend that what we are witnessing is directly attributable to the failed leadership of the 2 Major Political Parties (2MPP), who have exclusively controlled this country with an iron fist over the past 160 years.  How did this happen?  The broad answer is… slowly and methodically.  The 2MPP have perfected the processes of “bait and switch” and “generational progression”** to achieve their goals.

**Generational progression is where processes – whether rules or laws – are put in place during one generation, but not implemented or activated until sometime later, possibly even into the following generation. 

Human nature causes most, if not all of these to go unnoticed… especially now where so many things – including these new tragedies – completely distract us from paying attention to the continual onslaught of new regulations.

The 2MPP have taken advantage of the trusting nature of “We the People” and has created a monolithic system of pseudo-ownership which now completely controls essentially all the processes that manage and control our daily lives.

I say pseudo-ownership because even though they have no legitimate ownership, they act as if they do… wielding exclusive power and control over virtually every level of OUR government, including all of the related and tangential subdivisions.

If you doubt this, ask why there are no other political affiliations openly active or present today? The simple answer is that they are NOT allowed.

Americans have no idea of the scope of this collusion. I believe they would be truly shocked at the enormity of the web that currently entangles them. Certain situations give glimpses of lost rights… but in general, most Americans are completely oblivious as to how little of their Constitutional rights are intact.

This scheme is so complete – and so well perfected – that few cracks or flaws can be found in it… AND another huge factor – in the 2MPP favor – is that it has gone on for so long… that all the current generations are completely immersed in it… and accepting of it. This has become the “water we swim in”… so the comparison is virtually non-existent…

UNLESS we step back and ACTUALLY look at our Constitutional foundation… of what was originally enacted… at what the founders envisioned and structured… then – and ONLY then – we can see the gross and egregious violations that have been perpetrated on “We the People”.

Look for the Signs
The signs are everywhere… and will only be seen when you have a Constitutional reference or filter. Signs show up in a variety of ways… language, procedures, habits, patterns, etc. Since the Constitution cannot be outright banned… the 2MPP found ways to circumvent the parts that legally limited their control and power grabs. Whether by amendment, the legislative process or outright usurpation procedures, they’ve managed to completely subvert the intent and form of our Constitutional operating system to be under their control.

Just look at basic keywords such as Republic and democracy as an example.

The founders – after exhaustive research – ultimately agreed that our particular collection of societies and Colonies would best function as a Republic… that a Republic would have the best chance of succeeding in future generations. (See Republic Mechanics @SovereignHope. org for further explanation.)

As a babyboomer, throughout most of my adult life, I never heard our country described as a democracy… yet over the past 10 years, that word has slowly crept into our lexicon to describe our governmental process. Since the 2016 election cycle it’s become the dominant descriptor. Why?… because the 2MPP have chosen this time to thrust it into the public arena. Their language is now peppered with “democracy”… and our homogenized media blindly regurgitates it… never questioning – why the change? … because to the best of my knowledge… “We the People” did NOT choose this major identity or operational change.

In my humble opinion (IMHO), the aggressive use of the word democracy is the final of several generational processes to completely ensconce the 2MPP in ultimate control of this country. Follow my Reasoning Here… The very meaning of the word democracy describes power being “invested in the group”, versus the meaning of Republic, which is power “invested in the individual.” The founders understood this… and it also coincides with the Treaty of Paris, 1783 which grants all right, title and interest to the individuals of the colonies… NOT any political organization!

The 2MPP are positioning themselves to be “the group”… and once they accomplish this final sleight of hand – and with a few more generations under their belt – they are finally in a position to totally control this country – IF the Sovereign People continue to allow their reign.

The timing is also generationally prompted… since we are in a generational transition… with the babyboomers relinquishing operational roles and millennials assuming them. Babyboomers have demonstrated a decided lack of involvement or interest in governmental matters, and the millennials have little understanding of our constitutional heritage or processes… so this is the perfect time for the 2MPP to insert this critical language change and finally gain overt and complete control by defacto placement of themselves as “the group.” Both generations have deftly played into the 2MPP hands… babyboomers by abdication, millennials through lack of knowledge or experience. Either way, the 2MPP have achieved what they started back in the 1860s… dominant control over a population that has no idea or understanding of the gift that was created and given to them.

The Missing Link
In my decades of study and research, I’ve identified a critical missing link that would have – and potentially still might – change the course and fate of our Constitutional Republic. The founder’s conclusions and assertions that a Republic was (and still is) the best vehicle is still valid… BUT – I contend – we actually still haven’t seen it function… because we’ve never actually operated according to the specific plan that they so carefully laid out for us.

Initially, they meticulously planned all the details encompassing the creation and structuring of their new Republic… then, all their focus and energy shifted to implementing their plan… and IMHO they failed to grasp one very important and critical detail… that the uniqueness and processes that describe this new and radical way of self-government should be conveyed to “We the People” of the several states in a plain and simple pamphlet or book… call it a “How To” or Owners’ Manual for the New Republic.

This Owners’ Manual should have outlined the sweeping changes that they created, the uniqueness of the new system, the social and emotional environment necessary for its function, and the responsibilities necessary of each of the Sovereign People in order for this “grand experiment in human collaboration” to work successfully.

But that DID NOT happen. They essentially created this unique document in secret… and virtually kept it a secret… by not sharing the essential “How To Do It” portion. So, naturally “We the People” were essentially clueless… and as a result the people went along in the same way as before, not understanding much of the new document or their responsibilities to it. That, as history shows us, was a recipe for disaster… and the ideals of the newly minted directives virtually disappeared along with the founders, as they left public life.

What ensued was a cobbled-up, mish-mash of ideas and procedures… all instigated and instituted under the old party system which never was discarded, as the founders intended. To further complicate matters, this checkered restructuring process was constantly interrupted with conflicts like military skirmishes and civil unrest.

Qualities of our Constitution & Republic
Our Constitution is a distillation of Ideals and Values that mankind has yearned for… but never achieved… up until the founding period. Recorded history shows only a few instances where a people’s ability to live in peace was actualized, and those were short-lived. The gist of our Constitution – and its’ unique processes – is that the very essence mankind has yearned to have for millennia had been actualized. The founding generations – in a moment of blinding faith, honesty and candor – gleaned from their frail existence… the very best that mankind could be… and distilled it down to words on paper… words that can still guide us today… IF we CHOOSE to let them.

BUT… do those words hold the same value… the same meaning… the same impact as when first written? I contend that they DO NOT… because the faith-based energetic environment in which they were formulated has been abandoned. Current generations of Americans are immersed in FEAR. They mistrust themselves, others and most everything around them… not a recipe for success… especially for a Faith-Based system.

Signs to Look For
• Any organization or person using the word democracy… they either do NOT understand our founding principles or documents… or are trying to SUBVERT them.
• Any organization or person trying to convince you that The Constitution and its initial Amendments are a limit on your rights and freedoms… exactly the opposite is true… they are written limits for the government (paradigm shift!)
• Any organization or person promoting money as a solution. The 2MPP have accumulated a combined debt burden (deficit and national debt) of almost $24 Trillion dollars. To put that in perspective – if that’s possible – that’s almost $70,000 PER PERSON in the United States today… and their claim is that YOU owe this money… they have no ownership or responsibility for it!!

This ONE FACT ALONE should cause “We the People” to IMMEDIATELY take back control of our government from the 2 major political parties… To banish their existence… and Chalk up this near catastrophe to what happens when you don’t understand and follow your Constitutional Republic’s guiding documents.
