Question: What is it that makes America America?
Answer: The Constitution.
I have said this many times herein, but it bears repeating:
The Constitution - the Supreme Law of the Land - is all we have to stand on. It is the only thing that makes America unique. The Constitution, and the Constitution alone, supplies the legal organization of our federal government and provides it's legal rules of operation. The Constitution legally spells out federal government authority, responsibility to the citizenry, and it legally fixes the governmental power, scope and limitations.
The Constitution is America. It Constitutes America. Without the Constitution, America would not exist. To strike at the Constitution is to strike at the heart of America. Destroy the Constitution, and you destroy America.
Presidents, Congressmen, Senators, Justices, Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coastguardsmen, all, before the assume their respective duties, solemnly swear in an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic.
They do not swear to protect any territory, or any people, or anything other than the Constitution.
It bears repeating, because it seems to have been forgotten:
The only thing standing between you and your government is the Constitution. The only thing protecting you from your own government is the Constitution. If our Commander-In-Chief issues an un-Constitutional order to the military to infringe the least of your Constitutional rights, the Generals and Admirals are called to disobey it, as an unlawful order and a violation of their sworn oath to defend the Constitution.
But if any of them do not disobey it, and pass it on - the rank and file soldiers, sailors, etc., are called to disobey it, as an unlawful order, and a violation of their sworn oath to defend the Constitution.
But if any of them do not disobey it, and try to enforce it, then you have every Constitutional right to defend yourself and your property.
Make no mistake about it: this President is pushing for civil unrest even to the point of civil war, even as he pushes us over the economic cliff, weakens defense, alienates allies, emboldens enemies, and plays another round of golf, looking innocent.
Or worse; the Republicans actually cooperated in this corruption of the Constitution by "reaching across the aisle" and seeking "bipartisan cooperation" in order to "get things done."
Big Government Republicans will be the death of the Constitution.
I have said, in many places in these pages, that the Democrats are now so treacherous and so anti-Constitution as to warrant not only impeachment from office, but charges of treason. They operate, very specifically, against the Constitution, despite their oaths of office. Individually, their ultimate goal for post-Constitution America differs slightly depending on what level of Marxist ideologues they might be. The Useful Idiots among them seek to transform us into some grand but quite impossible collective utopian global-village. The more sinister treacherous Alinskyite-Marxists among them seek to make us into a dictatorship, pure and simple. Some of them may have made secret compacts with foreign entities for our take-over. At any rate, they all oppose America as Constituted.
But how are the Big Government Republicans any better? They, too, work against the restraints of the Constitution. Not only do they not defend the Constitution as written, they cooperate in exceeding its limitations and constraints. Where the Democrats are treacherous due to ideology, the Republicans are treacherous due to corruption.
Republicans are just as guilty of line-item earmarks, pork-barrel politics and buying votes from an increasingly dependent, as opposed to independent, citizenry, as are the Marxocrats. If it wasn't for Republican cooperation and congeniality at the political feeding trough, America wouldn't be in this current pickle.
The powers of the federal government are limited and enumerated, in Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution. If it isn't in there, the federal government has no Constitutional business even addressing it. It is a local matter.
How many times have you heard one of them say "Nobody wants to eliminate the Safety Net" in the middle of a speech on cutting federal government spending? Is there any Safety Net in Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution that I have overlooked?
How many times have you heard one of them say "Nobody wants to establish Unrestricted gun ownership" when defending the Second Amendment? Are restrictions on gun ownership somewhere in Article 1 Section 8, or anywhere else, that I have overlooked?
How many times have you heard one of them say "Nobody wants to round up all the illegal aliens" when pushing for border security? Why would we not want to round them up? What's so special about this particular brand of criminal activity?
Why do we even have laws? Why do we even have the Constitution?
The way out of this mess is not going to be with Republican leadership. Here's what I said recently in Rebirthing America:
If these additional "Constitutional Review" principles were applied, then much of the damage that has been done can be undone relatively quickly. By the same logic by which the Court said that "an un-Constituional law is no law", it could be said that "an un-Constitutional executive order is no executive order", and that "an un-Constitutional precedent is no precedent."
There is a whole raft of existing un-Constitutional federal law, regulation, precedent, executive order and imperial edict out there, from restricting guns to speech to you name it. It's time to stop it.
The whole of Obamacare was un-Constitutional, even in how it was gotten through legislation, let alone in what it did.
Anyway, that's what was bugging me this morning before going to work. If we get out of this mess with the Constitution intact, it won't be with the current Republican leadership and the current Republican professional consultants. If ever there was a time for new blood in the arena, this is it.
May God preserve our Constitution; the Republcans won't.

"But if any of them do not disobey it, and try to enforce it, then you have every Constitutional right to defend yourself and your property."
You have no constitutional right to property. If they are causing a menace to the larger public, you have no real right to your guns. A billionaire has no right to his billions while others starve. Whether you like it or not the great equalization is coming, and there is nothing you can do about it.

Clearly you are lost in your Marxist stupidification. For you greater education, provided you have the required attention span and cognitive ability to understand it, here is the very brief and simple Amendment IV of the Constitution:
So, it appears that we have a Constitutional right to be secure, not only in our persons, but in our houses, papers, and effects, i.e., our private property. Note that the 4th Amendment is part of the original Bill Of Rights absolutely required for the original Constitution to be ratified.
And, we have Amendment IV Section One, quoted right here:
So, it appears that we have a Constitutional right to Life, Liberty and Property.
Obviously, you know not whereof you speak.
And neither does Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, the Alinskyite Revolutionary, who play-acts at being a Constitutional scholar, and who has assumed the right to just kill any of us he chooses to kill, using drones, without warrant and without due process.
He applies American Constitutional rights only to foreign enemy combatants, criminal aliens and convicted felons, not to innocent American citizens.
Virtually everything he has done since assuming office has in some way violated his oath of office.

The Political Parties Pages
George Washington warned of the danger of the rise of Political Parties, and their inevitably destructive influence on good government. He was right. We are now ruled, not by our Constitution, which is no longer recognized as the supreme law of the land. We are now ruled by the Parties, and by the owners of the Parties, who comprise America's New Ruling Class. They who now own and operate all three branches of American Government.
Damn the Delegates, and Damn the Party, but Not the Two Best Candidates. It is the Delegate System, and the Party System, that Trick Us and Diabolically Divide Us.
Unconstitutional Party Delegates Unconstitutionally Picking Party Nominees. Unconstitutional Party Delegates of Unconstitutional Parties Unconstitutionally deciding who gets to run for President.
Unifying Hatred pulls the Political Parties together in Bipartisan Cooperation. As time goes on our two main Parties have less that divides them, as they agree more and more on varying kinds of Unifying Hatred.
The Rampant Unconstitutionism in Marxocrat Party Positions. Chris Matthews' question of Trump re punishing women for getting abortions puts Leftist Unconstitutionism on open public display.
The Political Party System that Runs America Despite the American Constitution. Cruz's Pro-Constitution agenda, and Rush's Anti-Liberal/Democrat Party agenda, aren't going anywhere while the Political Party System Itself Still Exists.
On Democratization out of Common Sense and Liberty, and into Marxism. Democratization out of the American Republic and into Marxism relies on the prerequisite educational assassination of simple common sense.
There is nothing wrong and everything right with American Nationalism. American Nationalism: fierce pride in America as Declared and Constituted; the exact opposite of Nationalism combined with Marxism-Socialism-Communism, Democracy, Monarchy, Theocracy or Dictatorship.
Governing by Phony Crisis, and Doubling Down to Grow Government. In the Governing by Phony Crisis scam, no crisis ever gets solved; they only grow, and multiply, and Grow Government.
Party Politics: Treachery and Betrayal of the Citizenry and the Constitution. The Ruling Elites are so steeped in their sly Treachery and Betrayal, so into themselves, so Certain, so broken from actual reality that they still do not understand Trump's continuing rise to power.
We're all looking for the Candidate who might fix our Anti-American Court. The next President might get to appoint four new Justices; that's all well and good, but why don't we even think about Impeachment for the majority of them right now?
Trump and Palin: Why are they considered to be the incompatible "Odd Couple"? If there's an incompatible "Odd Couple" it is the Tea Party and the Republicrat Party, not Trump and Palin, both of whom fully intend to stop exactly what we the people want stopped.
Replacing Scalia calls us to Restore American Constitutionalism.
Replacing Scalia is not enough; his Spirit calls us to Restore the
Constitution to its rightful place as the Supreme Law of the Land.
The Crony Capitalists who enrich the Capitalist Communists in our government. Crony Capitalists buy the Politicians who favor them with subsidies and favored tax breaks, and keep raising taxes to get richer and richer and richer.
All the secretly Capitalist Communists in America's Marxocrat Party. The Corrupt Crony Capitalist Communists getting filthy rich while pushing Marxist-Socialism on rest of the nation.
Fag Power: Owning and running more of the Church, and more of America. On some of Marxism's earliest created and exploited splinter groups now becoming the dominant exploiters and owners and drivers of culture.
Presenting America's new rulers: The Political Parties. The Constitution is now dead. What we have in its place is government of the people by the Parties for the Parties.
Legally Destroying America, through Defining Treason Down. American Political Parties are swiftly dismantling Constitutional government, having first defined treason down to the point of non-existence.
Political Parties: Redirecting allegiance away from the nation. Political Parties demand first obedience to the Party, not to the Constitution, slowly poisoning the nation.
Two Party Treason: Marxist Democrats Vs. Big Government Republicans. If both political Parties violate the Constitution in different ways, what we have is two Party treason.
Recognizing the Bipartisan or Nonpartisan Treason Destroying Civilization. The seductive desire for brotherly peaceful cooperation corrupts the world through nonpartisan treason.
Imagining a No Party America, with political Parties outlawed. When Political Parties oppose or do not defend the Constitution it is time for a No Party America.
New Way American Politics: Restoring and Advancing Cultural Americanism. A New Way of doing our Politics after anathematizing Political Parties, Marxism, Islam and Globalism.
Current Democratic Party platform reveals anti-Semitic streak among Liberals. In their voting, their speechifying, and in the slant of their controlled mainstream media reporting, the current Democratic Party Platform is made clear to all observers.
The Confederate Flag is also the Democrat Party Flag. Surprise. It's the Democrat Party Flag. "Democrat" is Synonymous with "Confederate", and should be used interchangeably.
Crony-Catholicism? Really? The USCCB is advancing Obamunism? Say it ain't so, Joe! It's bad enough that we now have so many Marxified Bishops, but now they actually act against the faith?
Has the USCCB morphed into the Catholicrat Party with it's own political agenda? Our Democrat Party is now Maxocrat; our Republican Party is now Republicrat; has our USCCB gone Catholicrat?
The Republicrat Liars: Cooperating in the Destruction of America. All Marxocrats always lie; therefore, Republicrat Liars are the most treacherous liars.
Stupid Political Arguments: False Premises and Talking In Circles. Presenting the stupid political arguments of our Marxist Democrats, always initiated and publicly argued for them by their News Media.
Feeding of Democratized Reality, inevitably ending in Loss of all Credibility. Scientific Consensus = Democratized Reality = Propagandized "Truth" = Falsehood espoused by believing fools.
Obamunist Assassins: Could pre-planned assassinations bring him back to power? Does a President of a Capitalist Christian nation, who was raised by Communists and educated by Moslems, really intend to permanently leave office?
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
