The OBJECTIVE of the War for Independence was to institute and perpetuate a system of government that would CONDEMN tyranny and LIMIT THE POWER that man could exercise over his fellow man. The crowning glory was the creation of the 1789 Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Its survival depends solely upon the people. God had richly blessed this endeavor!!!
What did our Founders understand?
“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judicial, in the SAME hands, whether of one, a few, or many … may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” – James Madison, Publius, 1788 Federalist
“When all governments, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington, as the CENTER OF ALL POWER, it will render POWERLESS the checks provided of one government on another, and will become as venial [unobjectionable] and OPPRESSIVE as the government from which we separated.” – Thomas Jefferson
“See to the government. See that the government does not acquire TOO MUCH POWER. Keep a check upon your rulers. DO THIS and liberty is safe.” – William Henry Harrison, 1840
“The consolidation of the States into one vast Republic, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be [the] certain precursor of that RUIN which has overwhelmed all those that have preceded.” – Robert E. Lee, 1866
“Posterity, you will never know how much it cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.” – John Adams
“On every question of construction (of the Constitution) let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, CONFORM to the probable one in which it was passed.” – Thomas Jefferson
“The provision in the Constitution granting the RIGHT to all persons to bear arms is a limitation upon the power of the legislator to enact ANY LAW TO THE CONTRARY.” – Michigan Supreme Court, 1922
Newswatch Magazine has reported since 1980 that the day would come when ANYONE who stood up to oppose the New World Order would become the new enemy of the State. Senator Joseph McCarthy was destroyed for exposing only 10% of the people in the State Department and the U.S. representatives to the United Nations. A former Communist testified in a Senate Committee that McCarthy was destroyed as a warning to anyone of consequence that, if they went against the conspiracy for World Government, they too would be destroyed in the eyes of the nation.
Thanks to a concerned Missouri state policeman, a nationally syndicated radio talk host stated that he was alerted to a secret Missouri police report that categorized supporters of Congressman Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and Chuck Baldwin as “militia influenced terrorists.” (www. chuckbaldwinlive.com). The report “instructs the Missouri police to be on the lookout for supporters displaying bumper stickers and other paraphernalia associated with the Constitutional, Campaign for Liberty, and Libertarian Parties.”
According to the Missouri Information Analysis Center, opposition to world government, NAFTA, federalization of the States, and restrictive gun laws are a potential threat to the police. The report also refers to Aaron Russo’s film, “America: Freedom to Fascism.”
The story exposing the report states, “The MIAC report is particularly pernicious because it indoctrinates Missouri law enforcement in the belief that people who oppose confiscatory taxation, believe in the well-documented existence of a New World Order and world government, and are opposed to the obvious expansion of the federal government at the expense of the States as VIOLENT EXTREMISTS who are gunning for the police. It specifically targets supporters of mainstream political candidates (Ron Paul, Bob Barr, Chuck Baldwin, etc) and encourages officers to consider them dangerous terrorists.”
The Columbia Daily Tribune also carried the story. The Tribune’s report also acknowledged, “The [MIAC] report’s most controversial passage states that militia ‘most commonly associate with third-party political groups’ and support presidential candidates such as Ron Paul, former Constitutional Party candidate Chuck Baldwin and Bob Barr, the Libertarian candidate last year.”
I realize that there are people who will dismiss the report. They shouldn’t. Anyone who knows history realizes that before a State or National Government can persecute, and commit acts of violence against a group of people, they must first marginalize the group from society’s mainstream and categorize it as DANGEROUS!!!
Rome did it to Christians. Mao did it to Christians. Hitler did it to Jews. Stalin did it to political dissenters. See: (www.newswatchmagazine.org)
Besides mentioning third-party candidates Paul, Barr, and Baldwin, the report gave a review that reveals that opposition to any of the following, risks someone being classified as a potential “domestic terrorist.”
- The United Nations.
- Gun Control.
- The violation of the Posse Comitatus Act.
- The Federal Reserve.
- The Income Tax.
- The Ammunition Accountability Act.
- A possible Constitutional Convention.
- The North American Union.
- Universal Service Program.
- Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
- Abortion on Demand.
- Illegal Immigration.
True patriotic Americans are being classified as domestic terrorists, while the border with Mexico is left wide open for REAL terrorists to find their way into the United States! Again, if you oppose any of the above, or if you supported Ron Paul, Bob Barr, or Chuck Baldwin, you risk being labeled a “domestic terrorist,” according to the report.
Do you not see how dangerous this kind of slanderous labeling can become? It could affect your flight status when you try to board an airline. It could affect your application for sensitive jobs. It could affect your adjudication before a court or judge. It could make you a target for aggressive law enforcement strategies. It could affect you being able to obtain a passport. It could affect one’s ability to purchase a firearm or receive a concealed weapon permit.
This is very serious business! We are not talking about private opinions. We are talking about law enforcement agencies! Most law enforcement agencies share these types of reports; therefore, how many other State police agencies have similar reports floating around? Probably many!!! How do we know this report was not influenced by federal police agencies? We don’t!!!
Martin Niemoeller was a decorated U-Boat Captain and pastor in Hitler’s days. He said: “They came first for the communists, and I did not speak up because I was not a communist; and they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak up because I was not a trade unionist; and they came for the Jews, and I did not speak up because I was not a Jew; and then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak up.”
God has written: “Cry aloud, spare not … and show My people their … sins” (Isaiah 58:1). God has warned that our national and individual sins will bring an end to the America we have all once known (Ezekiel 33: 1-12).
Should we be crying out to our God for forgiveness, and that He will protect us in the dangerous times ahead? (Revelation 12: 13-17).
