The Fundamental Transformation of America promised in Obamunism is doing its evil work. At this point, there is no "moderate" way to undo the damage. It's time for the gloves to come off, and for all real Constitutionalists to recognize and deal with Obamunism's mortal danger to America and to the larger world. It is not a time for bringing us all together; it is a time for fiercely dividing, along strict moral and ideological dotted lines. Note that morality comes first, not last.
The philosophical "Progressivism" of the effete, elitist snob class, which holds that all of us ignorant common folk need to be taken care of by a government run by an effete, elitist snob class, was perhaps invented by Teddy Roosevelt. If he didn't invent it, he certainly advanced it, and made it into something recognizable. Well, it was overtaken by the Marxist effete, elitist snob class, and morphed into the "Progressive" Strategy of Marxism, yet another pathway or preparation for eventual Marxist revolution. Marxist coup d'ete might be a more appropriate term.
If it all started with Republican Teddy Roosevelt, the Progressive movement really got going strong under Marxist-Democrat Woodrow Wilson, and then got another giant boost under Marxist-Democrat FDR. It was all downhill from there. America's Constitutional demise was and is being orchestrated from the top down, not from the bottom up. Just look at all the gigantic, unelected, unaccountable, extra-constitutional if not directly unconstitutional, regulating, all-powerful bureaucracies these Progresssive monsters have imposed above us, and between them and us.
And we let them do it. We allowed ourselves to be distracted. We believed the smooth political lies as we went about our business. We the People were not paying appropriate attention. And we let it grow, and grow, and get worse, and worse, for a hundred years.
Enter Comrade Barack Hussein Obama (peace be upon him) who leans more to the the Revolutionary than the Progressive strain of Marxism. Under Obamunism, Progressive nibbles have become enormous rip-offs, purposely intended to weaken and destabilize America and simultaneously infuriate the citizenry, and to antagonize us enough to allow him to declare an emergency situation requiring martial law. Typical Marxist strategy. If you can't foment a real revolution from the bottom up, you find a way to incite chaos and take control from the top down. Getting the citizenry so pissed at you that they eventually come for you is a real good way to do that.
Disruption of business, disruption of employment, attacks on our religion, legalizing immorality and perversion, disruption and breaking of parental authority and family relationships, disruption of working systems, destruction of health care, forcing blatantly immoral education on people, dumbing-down and indoctrinating public education, partisan, Marxist propagandizing news media, degrading the currency, creating insurmountable debt, continuously lying to the people, all, are very good ways to get the people up in arms.
Yet, picking up the pitchforks and torches is exactly what he wants us to do. Let us not be the ones to start it.
But recognize this: we still need to stop it. No one else is going to do it. Both Political Parties are in on it. All three branches of government are infected with it if not controlled by it. Our news media is in on it. Education is in on it. Organized Labor is in on it. Academia is in on it. Hell, even science is in on it. Entertainment and celebrity-hood is in on it. Plenty of religious leaders, including plenty of Catholic Bishops, are in on it. Some of the biggest so-called "Capitalists" and Crony-Capitalists are in on it (George Soros, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, GM, UAW, GE, AIG, Bank of America, etc., etc., etc.). That's what the American majority - We the People - are up against.
It's gone too far. We must stop it. We cannot continue to let it grow; we absolutely must stop it and fix it. And know this: we can no longer fix this thing piecemeal. We need to skewer this whole hog, put it on a spit and roast it.
Or kiss Constitutional America goodbye.
So - how do we git-r-done?
1: In the 2014 Mid-Term Elections: Get strict Constitutionalists in Control of both the Senate and the House. That means defeating most of whoever will be the Party Favorites of both political Parties. We need Constitutional majorities in both houses of Congress.
2: Draw up Articles of Impeachment in the House, and try cases of Impeachment in the Senate, beginning with Comrade Obama (peace be upon him). Bring Impeachment proceedings against all members of all three branches of government who have violated the law and/or violated their oaths of office. If that means we need one or more special elections because, for instance, Constitutional successors to an impeached President are themselves under impeachment, then so be it - hold whatever special elections are necessary.
You can see our multiple calls for impeachment over the years among the Treachery and Treason webpages. We can now only pray that it is not too late.
3: Get a strict Constitutionalist in the Presidency, whether through special election if needed due to impeachments, or through the 2016 election.
4: Pass the Fair Tax, using the Fast Track the Fair Tax method to get it in place without waiting on the ratification of the necessary amendment to Repeal Amendment XVI. Get the Fair Tax through the legislative process and on the President's desk for immediate signature. Get the Amendment to repeal drawn up, agreed to, signed and into circulation in the States for ratification. With the Fair Tax in operation, everything the government is doing will be funded, and then some, and no one will be paying income tax any more. Everybody gets a big raise.
5: Kill the IRS. We have said this before, in Kill the IRS, in fact. Once we have a national consumption tax, and all other forms of taxation are made illegal, we will have no need for the IRS, and thus, we should be able to cut the national consumption tax considerably. This means that all the thousands if not millions of IRS employees would suddenly raise the unemployment rate. But remember, every one of them is an "Etitle-ista" vote; they depend totally and completely on big Marxocrat government for their livelihoods, their benefits, their Obamacare subsidies, their ruling-class lifestyle and all their political clout and bureaucratic power. They will not leave quietly. Nevertheless, they must go; they will have to find out for themselves how to make a living like the rest of us, instead of living off of us.
6: Destroy the Political Party Concept, as described in No Party America. Legislate to outlaw the ability of any professional Political Party to hold conventions in which to select candidates for high office in America. Let states and/or regions of states organize their own conventions for that purpose. Get away from professional politics and back toward representative statesmen running for high office, rather than mere polished, professional, career, Party Politicians.
7. Stop funding the UN, and consider the possibility of getting out of it altogether. Outlaw all aspects of Agenda 21 in the USA, and declare any other harmful agreements or treaties that impose rules on the American citizenry and the American private sector that are other than American Constitutional rules to be null and void. In all matters affecting the private sector and American citizens, the American Constitution retains supreme legal standing in America whether anyone outside America likes it or not. Limit all treaties to inter-government and international matters only.
8. Secure our national borders and round up all criminal aliens legally subject to criminal prosecutions, convictions, penalties and deportations, as recommended in the various Criminal Alien pages. With no changes, strictly and forcefully enforce standing border law and standing immigration law, to the letter. Border security law and immigration law are not "broken". They are simply, purposefully and criminally, not being enforced by the current theoretically representative government.
9. Shut down Common Core from the top, by shutting down the Department of Education and all education funding. The federal government is not qualified to do education, nor is it Constitutionally authorized to fund it or have anything whatsoever to do with it. Education is extra-constitutional. Shutting it down means that all federal funding to states for education will stop. Reciprocally, it means the federal government has no say in what states do re education. It is an inducement for states to immediately act to either take over education entirely on their own, or, leave education to the private sector, where it properly belongs. We said as much in our argument against public education.
10. Close all non-Constitutional bureaus as we recommended in the Cut The Spending pages, and in the Fixing America pages. If we start with the EPA, we will have made enormous progress toward restoring Constitutional America. Every rule and regulation, every standard, everything EPA has done, and all agencies like it, is either extra-Constitutional or flat out un-Constitutional. The Constitution nowhere grants Congress the ability to delegate it's sole authority to legislate law. The very existence of all of these Administrations, or "Soveits" as the Russians would call them, is un-Constitutional in and of itself. We are Americans. We do not need to be administered. With every bureaucracy cut, there could be a commensurate cut in the national fair tax.
Bottom line, if Congress is absolutely convinced of the deadliness to the planet earth of the carbon dioxide that they exhale with every breath they take, then they should legislate law outlawing carbon dioxide (CO2) in accordance with the Constitution, if they think they can get away with it, instead of hiding behind some giant, unanimously regulating bureaucracy.
Things have gone so far off track that America appears to be being governed, or administered, into a surreal cartoon existence of both comic and tragic stupidity. We have general high-society acceptance of the most unnatural perversions of nature, acclaimed as not only natural, but most normal. And there are thundering herds of TTRSTF4 who will back up these claims of normalcy and non-perversion, and call their findings "scientific". Yessir.
Using artificial contraception is considered natural. Homosexuality is natural and normal. Opposing it or saying anything against it is homophobic. A woman choosing to kill the developing child in her own womb is natural and normal. Opposing abortion is opposing "choice".
What the hell happened to us?
Leftist attacks - from show-biz, from celebrity, from the Marxocrat Party, from the News Media, from academia, from some churchmen, even from science - on those who oppose these or other clear abnormalities are actually attacked in rhetoric including terms such as "obsession" and "perverse obsession" with whatever the topic is. So, those who support life and oppose perversions of nature and natural law are the ones with obsessive behaviors and who are perverted. That is the standard today. Because we champion life, we have a perverse obsession with contraception, homosexuality, abortion and euthanasia. See? We are the ones with the perversions and the obsessions.
You can look at the Class Warfare induced upon us by the Marxocrat Party, ostensibly in the name of Social Justice, in order to achieve total Equality and so forth. But note this well: Not one of the people who preach this "equality" want it for themselves. They want it for you and for me, but not for themselves. They are liars.
Do you think Al Gore, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Comrade Obama (peace be upon him), Comrade Hillary, Comrade Harry Reid, Comrade Nancy Pelosi, any Hollywood star, any millionaire news anchor, or Comrade Archbishop Dolan actually want to be equal to you and me? No way. The members of the ruling Marxist effete, elitist snob class want to rule the rest of us, who are to be made equal in poverty. What they preach is equality for thee, but not for me.
Ted Cruz articulates and argues well a simple, direct Constitutionalist agenda. He stands on American Foundational Principles and on American Constitutional Principles, and untold millions of us are already rallying to his banner. Why? It's the Constitution. Very simple; nothing to it.
What America needs is some similar champions in the theological and moral wars for supremacy in our culture.
Speaking as a Catholic, I can tell you that if any Catholic Bishop stepped forward and promoted pure, unadulterated Catholicism in a very loud and public way, ala Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, untold millions of American Catholics would rally to his banner, in a heartbeat. Why? It would be the unvarnished Truth, in all its fullness. Very simple; nothing to it.
And if multiple Catholic Bishops did that, why, I don't know if my old heart could take it. It would be as if the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church were actually speaking with one voice. That would seem to be too good to be true. If it did happen, and my old heart survived, I would resist yelling "Where the hell have you guys been?" and get down on my knees and give thanks to God almighty.
When John Paul the Great called for a New Evangelization, what he meant was an evangelism aimed at all the untold millions of Catholics who left the faith in the aftermath of Vatican II, and are still leaving, due to the mixed messages and mushy teaching of piss-poor Catholic Bishops. I submit for your consideration the opinion that that New Evangelization should begin with evangelizing the Bishops themselves. If they all actually believed in the whole of the Roman Catholic faith themselves, without reservation, the New Evangelization of lapsed Catholics and former Catholics would almost go on auto-pilot.
Any Bishop who preaches unadulterated and unvarnished Catholicism the way Ted Cruz promotes unadulterated and unvarnished Constitutional America will, similarly, have untold millions rally to his banner.
That's what I'm praying for, but I ain't holding my breath.
Seek the Truth, find the Way, live the Life. Please God and live forever.

Stumbled across this site while looking for Latin Mass resources. Lots of interesting material and commentary here. Your points above are valid to me, but if I may add - in my opinion nothing less than the wholesale conversion and installation of Christ as King in our hearts will right this ship (I stand convicted myself to a great degree as I wrote that). My very brief time on this website gives me the impression you are of like mind. I will bookmark this site and will continue to read your informative content. God bless you and your work here.

Thank you sir. Welcome aboard, and please pray for the Church in America, the morality of the citizenry and for Constitutional America.

Does this mean you have already decided on Ted Cruz for President?

Yes. If Sarah Palin does not get in the race, Ted Cruz is my pick.

I think we must include mandatory term limits for all elected federal officials, destroying the Federal Reserve, re-instituting gold-backed currency and gold and silver coins, and amending the Constitution to require an annual balanced budget.
However, I fear we have already passed the point that the federal government can be fixed.

There is always hope, John. Liberty is carved on the hearts of man by the divine author of nature. So long as the idea underlying Constitutional America lives, America lives.

Yes Vic, there is always hope. My concern is that the effort to fix the governmental structure will not be a simple repair job that requires well-placed wrenches and screw drivers. My fear is that the tools needed first are going to sledgehammers. And if that is so it is not going to be a pretty sight, or will it be an operation that will be welcomed by a lot of the population.

Right you are. That's why I've been calling for the need to take the Senate (where cases of impeachment are tried) and impeach the President since 2008. The sooner you take care of these things, the easier they are to take care of. The more they are ignored or put off, the more it spreads out and the harder it gets to fix it all. See the Obamunism pages, and the Treachery and Treason pages.
It's like indulging in sin, of whatever variety. It has a mesmerizing quality; the more you indulge in it, the harder it is to stop, or even to recognize it as sin. But it remains sin. It gets harder and harder to recognize it, repent of it and get into that confessional, but you have to do it, and the sooner the better, always.
Obamunism is the clear result of the cancerous Marxist-elitist thought that has been metastasizing throughout our culture since 1848, through our education system, our academic institutions, and through them, even our science, and our news media, our entertainment, our political Parties and our government.
There is now no easy way out of this. That's why my solutions seem so harsh.
But we have no other choice now. The gloves have to come off, we have to do actual work, and we have to get dirty and tired, and we have to keep on working. That's the way it is.
Ask yourself, is it worth it. Re-read the Declaration, and the Constitution. And then just get to work.

Returning America to the revolutionary High Ideals of the Founding Fathers, and to the formalized Ideology of Liberty that the Framers set down in the Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land.
The Fixing America Pages
Almost all the rest of this site talks about our problems; these pages talk about how to fix them. Marxist anti-Americanism has advanced so far in even our politics and our own government that we now have to consider super-radical changes just to save the Constitution itself.
The Required Radical American Re-Revolution. Or, Re-Constitution. It took 100+ years to radicalize Constitutional America. It will take a radical re-revolution to bring it back to sanity.
Fixing it all, or, losing it all: the only options left for America. Fixing it all is our only option. If we don't fix it all, we will surely lose it all.
Going whole-Hog on American Constitutional Restoration. It's all or nothing, now. If we don't go whole-hog on Constitutional Restoration, the USA is history.
Constitutional America requires American re evangelization. We cannot revive Constitutionalism without an American re evangelization.
Deep Reconciliation means repentance, confession, absolution and conversion. A Serious, Deep Reconciliation is required of this whole nation, one man at a time.
At this moment in time, most Constitutionalists would love to kill the IRS. How do you Kill the IRS? Fast-track and pass the Fair Tax. Very simple; nothing to it.
Our argument supporting the Fair Tax as a sensible and practical Tax Revolution. Fair Tax presents the possibility of a real, popular, voter-supported, tax payer supported, grass-roots supported Revolution in America, and a radical change for the better.
Fasttrack Fairtax: Stop income tax until repeal of Amendment XVI. Fasttrack Fairtax: Legislate to not collect income tax and pass FairTax.
Argument to Repeal Amendment XVI, the Income Tax Amendment. Repeal Amendment XVI and the very idea of progressively taxing income.
Argument for Repeal of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. The Federal Reserve Act did not prevent the Great Depression, so why does The FED still exist?
Argument to Repeal Amendment XVII and the Politicizing of the Senate. We need to repeal Amendment XVII and restore our Senate to its original status.
It isn't just Obamacare; we need to kill controlled Health Care. Kill Controlled Health Care to get government and insurance out of the medical transaction.
We need to shut down the dept of education. Shut down the dept of education and cut $77B from the budget.
Argument against Public Education, which is, in fact, Government Indoctrination. Public Education equals State Indoctrination, pure and simple. Education is beyond the scope of government and not what our government is constituted to do.
Are our federal bureaucracies all malignant outgrowths of Marxism? Any extra-Constitutional government agency is likely to be a malignant outgrowth of Marxism.
