Does a distinct People or a Nation have a collective soul?
Perhaps; but we know from Sunday's readings that God was not pleased with most of the Israelites He had led out of bondage. The nation was being led in the right direction, but everyone in it was not walking the walk. Concupiscence was having its way and Satan was claiming his own.
In America today we see Concupiscence being supported, fed, grown and carefully organized by organized Political Parties, which have over time become dedicated to the feeding of human concupiscence. To the point of establishing legally protected "rights" to commit mortal sins.
This represents an unconstitutional and therefore illegal modification of the original purpose and organization of the USA, being done by unconstitutional organizations (political parties) which have no legal right and no Constitutional business having anything to do with the governing of Constitutional America.
And yet, unconstitutional political parties may be seen today to own and operate, in competition with each other, each of the three actual Constitutional coequal branches of our federal government, all state governments, and all city and local governments all across the nation.
It happened by cultural osmosis, the same way concupiscence conquers grace; slowly, gradually, one little acquiescence to evil at a time. We don't even notice, unless we are paying constant attention.
Political Parties are not mentioned in the Constitution at all. And yet, they have put themselves in charge of Constitutional America.
Today it may be seen that the Marxocrat Party sponsors mortal sin, and the Republicrat Party accommodates mortal sin, at the very least.
I submit that even bipartisan cooperation between unconstitutional governing entities is always detrimental to and ultimately destructive of the Constitution itself. At the very least, it displaces the ruling authority of the Constitution and replaces it with the unconstitutional ruling authority of the unconstitutional governing entities (political parties).
The Declaration lays it out, in three major interdependent ideas:
The original four rights of man - equality, life, liberty and property - were authored by God, not man, and thus not subject to being overruled or overturned by any man or any government. These four rights became actual Constitutional rights, and were the original Constitutional rights from which all other Constitutional rights flowed.
The protection of these four natural law rights of man were declared to be the very purpose for our government, and the only legitimate purpose for any secular government.
Violation of these rights of man by the government were declared to be justification for the citizenry to abolish the government, and to institute new government to again recognize, respect and protect them.
So what we see when we examine the original purpose for the whole design of the new government for America, was two things:
Any careful study of the Ten Commandments will show how these four rights, which are the foundation stones of the rest of the Constitutional rights, all are supported by the last seven so-called Moral Commandments of God. The first three Commandments are at the root of theological science, describing man's proper relationship with God; but the last seven are at the root of morality, describing man's proper relationship with his fellow man.
And that - the moral law - is what secular government and all legislated law should be based upon, in order to be "good" government.
How does a moral government remain moral? By legislating, enforcing and adjudicating secular law that always reinforces and never interferes with the foundational natural law rights to equality, life, liberty and private property.
How does a moral citizenry remain moral? By faith in and adherence to the Judaeo-Christian religions that teach the Commandments upon which those natural law rights, and the nation's representative laws, are founded.
A moral representative government and a moral citizenry are codependent things. As either becomes immoral, it will make the other immoral too. An immoral citizenry will make their own representative government immoral; similarly, an increasingly immoral government will feed and compliment concupiscence and turn the citizenry to immorality.
Democracy creates and enforces majority rule and thus suppresses minorities. This flies in the face of the right to Equality before the law. Equality does not mean equality in wealth or status, but equality in rights and responsibilities before the law; the right to be heard in court. Pure majority rule, as in Democracy, defeats that principle.
The reason the USA is a Constitutional Republic and not a Democracy is to protect minorities from the majority and ensure the principle of equal rights for everyone.
The founders sought to restrain the "lynch-mob" potential of Democracy and to restrain the opposing dictatorial power of a king, both at the same time. The new nation in America was to have government power limited and constrained by the citizenry, and citizen power limited and constrained by the government.
How do you do these two things in a reasonable and workable way?
The three branches temper the power of the people, and temper the power of the government, and do both at the same time. It makes it difficult and time consuming to make new laws, as it should be; the number and power of laws lesser to the supreme law of the Constitution itself should be limited; the three coequal branches do that limiting. The whole goal is to keep government limited and the citizenry free. To the extent that government power grows, to that same extent is citizen freedom limited.
The power of the people is supposed to be equal to the power of the state.
(Unrestricted cultural concupiscence destroys both peoples and states.)
The Congress legislates; the Executive enforces, and the Judiciary adjudicates law, and never the twain shall meet. Neither the President nor the judiciary may make new law. Neither the congress nor the judiciary may enforce law. Neither the executive nor the congress may adjudicate law.
All must be equally expert in knowledge of the Constitution, by which they legislate, enforce and adjudicate law, but none can cross the lines that separate the three branches and do what any other branch may do.
Originally, only the House of Representatives was directly elected, district by district; but all Senators were appointed by and served at the discretion of duly elected Sovereign State Governments. Representatives (Congressmen) represented the people, but Senators represented the Governors and Congresses of the individual state, thus countering the purely popular vote with votes for the needs of their whole states, and thus tempering Democracy.
The President and Vice President are elected by the Electoral College, and the Supreme Court is not elected at all, but appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate.
The steady destruction of the Constitutional principles that made America great have been underway for well over a hundred years. The trend is toward Democracy, and past Democracy into Socialism. The trend was started by Marxists and is continued by Cultural Marxists.
Why would Marxists promote Democracy? Because Democracy will fail. All purely democratic governments eventually collapse, presenting the opportunity for revolution and/or coup; a government takeover.
Tocqueville described the process in 1835, in his On Democracy in America. Pure Democracy as a government form begins to fail as soon as
As this trend continues the whole government falls into fiscal irresponsibility and economic ruin, and eventually economic catastrophe. An opportune moment for any would be tyrant, such Lenin, Hitler or Mussolini, who were all Marxists before they were anything else.
It was the Democrat-cum-Marxocrat President Woodrow Wilson who managed to do the most damage to the original American design with the quick ratification of Amendment XVII and the politicization of the Senate. It turned the Senate into just another democratically elected body, no different than the House, except that the two Senators per state were elected by whole state populations.
What's wrong with that? They no longer represent the sovereign states. It was a movement out of being a Republic, with equal representation between the whole citizenry and the sovereign states, and into being a pure Democracy. Senators were not intended to be mere politicians, but now, that is precisely what they are. Professional politicians; it has become a profession. In a profession that doesn't particularly give a damn about the needs of their own duly elected state governments.
The States lost their voice and their votes in the Senate.
It was the long term results of the evil Amendment XVII that brought to America the moral monsters of Senators Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Marco Rubio, who betrayed both their own voters and the Constitution they were solemnly sworn to uphold on the illegal immigration issue. It's bad enough that they were elected and not appointed, as the Constitution's ratifiers intended, but they then betrayed their own voters, too.
They say it openly. Elimination of the electoral college may be almost as strong a plank in the Marxocrat Party Platform as is abortion itself. They are now confident enough to be quite open about all of their anti-American intentions, including the repeal of the Second Amendment, if not the elimination of the entire Constitution.
The Marxocrat Party's Big Tent, All Inclusive, Bring-us-all-together, Diversity Celebrating, Multiculturalism is a Divide And Conquer evil stratagem in disguise. The Marxocrat Party, with Sorosian funding and Alinskyian organizing, has created, grown and motivated a blue million wildly diverse Political Activist Groups.
The word Activist is an important word to note here.
There are seemingly separate groups organized according to favoring special rights for a particular race, sex, homosexuality, transexuality, abortion, contraception, easy divorce, climate control, animal rights, environmental "rights", pornography, dope and drugs of all sorts, free health care, free housing, free food, etc., etc., etc.
Marxocratism pretends to unify these groups, to represent them all, and claims to be the Party of total unity, where everyone is welcome. In fact, they have invented the divisive monster known as Intersectionality, in which those with the most "intersections" are more equal than those with fewer.
The whole thing opposes the Constitutional right to Equality. The extra-Constitutional "rights" of these groups always act, in law, often supported by courts, to override and overpower actual Constitutional rights. Such as Equality, and Life, and Liberty, and Private Property.
Each of the Marxocrat sponsored activist groups has been taught to be and believes itself to be a "disenfranchised" "victim" group, oppressed by the nation, by the Constitution, by the majority of the citizenry and even by history. What they all share in common is an animosity toward America as founded, Christianity, Judaism, Western civilization, white people and sexual normalcy.
It's one thing to personally favor artificial contraception; but why does contraception need activism? To force the rest of the population to agree with it, support it and even pay for it, against their will.
It's one thing to personally favor abortion, but why does such a horrible crime need political activism? To force unconstitutional rules and even unconstitutional laws on us against our will, to force us to agree with it under pain of being ostracized and demonized as "immoral".
An exact reversal of reality.
It's the same with black, Hispanic and American Indian supposedly disenfranchised and oppressed victim groups. Today's generations of minority victim groups activate for reparations, to be paid by today's generations of white people, to make everybody feel better about what someone else supposedly did long ago, supposedly to someone else, long ago.
In fact, if ancestral reparations are due from anyone to anyone in America, then the descendants of the Democrat (Secession) Party owe generational reparations to descendants of black slaves and to the descendants of Union Civil War soldiers and sailors who lost life, limb or abilities in the fight to make all men equal.
Which would be equally nonsensical to any innocent white today paying reparations to any perfectly free, equal and non-victim black today.
Moreover, again, it's one thing for anyone to believe that racial minorities are deserving of leg-up extra-Constitutional rights superior to actual Constitutional rights, violating Constitutional Equality, but it is another to believe that the rest of us ought to be forced by law and social pressure to believe and act-out the same notion.
We find the same situation being imposed on the whole America population on issue after issue, especially regarding feminist rights and homosexual rights. These are today known as "Woke" issues. "Woke" people hold membership in any favored woke group to be a if not the qualifying characteristic for candidacy for high office.
The "Wokes" are activist about it; they proactively work to impose their beliefs on the whole culture, against its will.
The top tier Marxocrat candidates for office are males, and they publicly lament (yeah, right) that there are no women in the top tier with them. They are white, and they publicly lament (yeah, right) that there are no minority races in the top tier with them.
Not what they believe; not their ethos or their morality; not their love or hate for America as founded and Constituted, but their skin color, and their sex.
The one thing they are happy about is that the homosexual perversion is now represented in the top tier of Presidential candidates for office. The "Woke" no longer see homosexuality as sinful or unnatural or disgusting; they hold it to be somehow heroic, laudible and praiseworthy, and something to be encouraged.
But that ain't all. They also seek to forcibly impose the social and legal acceptability and even superiority of sexual perversion on the whole population against its will. Again, they are activist about it. They love it, and they intend to force you to love it too. That's what the Woke mean when they use the word Progress.
Homo rights, feminist rights, racial rights, tranny rights, dope rights, environmental rights, animal rights, climate correcting rights, illegal immigration rights, and more, all supersede and overwhelm actual existing Constitutional rights, and all suggest the actual elimination of the Constitution itself.
All of this opposition to America is coming out of rising Marxism in America, which is coming out of American schools.
Bernie Sanders is the leading Marxocrat candidate at the moment, and Bernie Sanders is a Communist. He denies that; he says he is not a Communist, but a Socialist. He is a liar. All a Communist is is someone who imposes Socialism on a population at the point of a gun.
Otherwise, Socialism is Communism; Communism is Socialism.
When Commie Bernie says that, after he wins, the transformation of America will begin, believe him; he means it. He will force it on us. His Party and Marxist media will help.
That is why the Party has invented, organized, trained and prepared all of these seemingly disparate groups that make up the Intersectionality that opposes America, Christianity, morality, science and actual reality.
Commie Bernie is now the top candidate in the Marxocrat primaries for the simple reason that he now has a solid following of dedicated young anti-American Socialists, and all the teachers and professors who made them into Socialists, and solidly Socialist Hollywood, as a solid, totally dedicated voter-base.
It is this carefully and purposely invented Marxocrat Party voter base that is now pulling the whole Marxocrat Party toward Bernie-ism. And the Marxocrat Party powers that be now cannot stop it, change its course or even slow it down. The Bernie voter-base is too big. It's going to be a political train wreck; possible even a "little" civil war.
But, to the chagrin of the Marxocrat movement, and to the cheers of America as Constituted, all the intersections are starting to oppose each other and even eat each other. Proving once again that the real goal of Marxocrat-driven super-inclusiveness and multiculturalism was to divide and conquer, and bring about social chaos and social destruction. And now it is destroying them, as a viable political Party in America.
The now public battle between the Feminists and the Trannys is just one of the hidden burgeoning skirmishes between factions on the Left. The Feminists are now all hissy and spitty over actual male Trannys competing against women in women's sports, and winning everything.
Disproving the Feminist lie that there are no real differences between real men and real women, and consistently proving that men are bigger, stronger, faster, more aggressive, etc., which means that sexual differences are something greater than "institutional" and "cultural" and "socially induced".
And disproving the Tranny lie that "gender" is something that is, always was and always should be determined by feelings, emotions and opinions, and not merely chromosomes and genitalia.
They deserve each other.
Many in this voter base do not know how to take no for an answer.
Meanwhile, Marxocrat politicians, lawyers and judges have established Sanctuary Cities and even a Sanctuary State (California) where criminals can run free, repeat their crimes and not face prosecution.
Marxocrat party activist groups like Black Lives Matter and the Black Panthers demonstrate against, attack and even murder police officers in the Marxocrat Party's drive to demonize and oppose police and the rule of law.
Marxocrat Party activist groups like Code Pink and Antifa disrupt procedures, deface monuments, attack political opponents and institutions, and try to turn all other "demonstrations" into riots, smashing windows, burning buildings and police cars and otherwise performing the familiar deeds that Fascists always perform.
And Marxocrat Party activists in high office work to eliminate ICE, the Border Patrol and all immigration and customs law enforcement, in Congress, while they push the elimination of American national sovereignty as a political issue with their fired-up voter base.
Everything we're speaking of here works against moral self control. The whole program seeks to transform the good (morally ruled) child into the unruly child. The seeds of this unruliness are planted in young minds in formal education, as successive generations of credentialled teachers have promoted the anti-authority "revolutionary" image in or beneath every subject they have taught.
Creating "to hell with God" and "to hell with religion" and even "to hell with the family" anarchistic and sociopathic tendencies in the most educated among us.
What is left, after abandoning blood and soil, mother and father, loyalties to state, class, race, party and religion, is the self.
It becomes the self over everything.
Unrestrained and unlimited self gratification. If it feels good do it. Go after whatever pleases you. No one has any legitimate authority to stop you from pleasing yourself. You are your own god. You make the rules.
And that seems, to the self, to be good, for this life, now, on this earth.
The problem is, most educated young people today, at least on the Marxocrat side of the street, truly believe that this life and this earth is all there is, all there ever was, and all there ever will be. They don't know any better.
The Bible tells us that this life, all life, this world, all matter, this very existence, is passing away (1 John 2:17; 2 Peter 3:10). Material science actually proves this Revelation to be true, as shown in the Devolution page.
A major fraction of the American population, of which the Marxocrat Pary's voter-base may be the largest part, don't know that, because they have been deprived of it in their corrupted education, from K through college. They are steeped in the pseudo-science of Scientism.
President Trump's ongoing rallies keep showing where the American majority stands, and it most certainly is not on the Left with the Marxocrats.
He held a rally in Iowa just before the Iowa Caucuses, and he held another rally in New Hampshire, just before the New Hampshire Primaries, and both times he proved that he could draw a larger and more enthusiatic crowd than all of the Marxocrat candidates, whether individually or collectively, by an order of magnitude.
And the Trump rally-goers include blacks, Hispanics, women, environmentalists, workers, union members, teachers, and believe it or not, large numbers of registered or once-upon-a-time Marxocrats. Lots and lots of Christians of every description, including so-called Evangelicals and including Catholics, in really big numbers.
Why? Because he's real. He stands in actual reality and practicality.
Not because he is any saint, but because he is real, and he is one of us, in all our imperfections.
Just look at what his opposition believes and promotes and stands for.
It is a Satan's brew of unreality, nonsense and chaos, and they love it.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12
Seek the Truth; Find the Way; Live the Life.
Please God, and Live Forever.

How did you come to the conclusion that political parties are unconstitutional?
Date: Wed Feb 12 2020
From: Vic Biorseth
By the simple fact that they are nowhere mentioned in the Constitution. They are no legitimate part of the Constitutional Government. They are exactly what George Washington warned against. See the Political Parties Pages.

Vic, the Gospels don't tell us not to use dirty gasoline engines to get around in either, but it doesn't follow that it is prohibited. The sole purpose of the written constitution was to limit the power of the new federal institution in order to prevent its encroachment upon the people's rights. As a fail-safe and within 6 months after its ratification, the founders had already introduced amendments we call the Bill of Rights. Note that the very first amendment protects the peaceful assembly of people. If being a member of any political party is not peaceful assembly, what else could it be?

From: Vic Biorseth
First, limiting the powers of the new federal government was not the "sole" purpose of the written Constitution.
The Constitution very specifically lays out the three coequal branches of the government and provides their complete rules of operation. In this other "purpose", we see what amounts to an owner's manual or an operator's manual for running the government of the United States. The Constitution therefore lays out exactly what the government is, and exactly what it does, its authority and its limitations. If it isn't in there, it isn't part of the federal government.
Second, the Constitution could not be ratified without prior agreement to amend it with the Bill Of Rights. Ratification was held up until it was agreed that the Bill Of Rights would become a part of the Constitution. It was not an afterthought; it was a demand that had to be satisfied before the ratification vote could even succeed.
Article One describes the Congress and its full operating instructions.
Article Two describes the Executive and its full operating instructions.
Article Three describes the Judiciary and its full operating instructions.
There is no article describing any political party or parties.
Political Parties have no legitimate Constitutional business running any part of the American Constitutional government.
You can assemble with anyone you want to assemble with, but short of amending the Constitution to do it, those you assemble with will have nothing legal to say about the operation or the running of any part of the Constitutional government.
Look up President George Washington's Farewell Address.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Get in the fight! Engage!
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"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
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
