Truth always was.
Objective truth, that is. Objective truth never changes.
Subjective truth is internal truth; it is that "truth" that comes from within us; from our feelings, our emotions, our senses, our deductions, observations, calculations and so forth. Subjective truth may be based more or less on intuition and gut feel than on logic, or, the reverse may be true. However we arrive at it, subjective truth is what we perceive to be true, and thus, subjective truth is subject to variation from person to person.
Objective truth, on the other hand, is external truth; it does not come from us, and is not subject to us. Objective truth is real truth. Another word for objective truth is reality. Objective truth is completely independent of the mind of man. It does not matter what we, or anyone, or everyone, thinks about it; it does not matter even if we think about it. There is nothing we can do to it. We cannot affect it. Objective truth remains truth, forever.
Objective truth is absolute truth. Absolute truth = reality.
The lie, as untruth, leads man into error. The ultimate object of all lies is, eventually, the denial of the existence of absolute truth. The pretense that nothing may be known with absolute certainty, which leads to moral relativism, which in turn equates to variable reality.
To deny absolute truth is to deny reality, which is to deny the existence of God. It was through God's revelation to man that man learned right from wrong. To deny absolute truth is to deny the existence of right and the existence of wrong. It is a denial of good and evil.
Absolute truth is therefore the only real basis for the development of a morality, and for developing civil law and social rules for a good, decent and moral people.
The denier of absolute truth does not know right from wrong, has no sense of the sacred or the holy, and has no sense of awe at the creation around him. In his mind, it merely exists, and he merely exists in it. He cannot bow before mystery, because, as a man of science, he does not believe in mystery. Denial of reality, or inability to discern reality, is a definitive characteristic of insanity.
To say "There are no absolutes" is to say "There is no right and wrong." To say there is no right and wrong is to begin the descent into social degradation and moral depravity. When man adopts or adapts to an anything goes social construct, the eventual end result must be barbarity and might makes right.
Denial of good and evil is doom.
Jesus said, in John 14 1:6, I am the way, the truth and the life. He thus pointed the way to the center of all truth. He redeemed us, and pointed us in the right direction. Having made us in His likeness, he loved and respected us too much to interfere with our liberty and our free will. He oriented us in the right direction; he showed us the way; he told us how to live. And then, out of love and respect, he left us free to decide for ourselves. That is why individual liberty is so important.
Eternal life is the ultimate reward for freely choosing good over evil.
The why of the lie is at the crux of the problem. The reason that the evil one told the first lie was to invent, in the mind of man, a new truth. An unreal truth. To make that which is impossible to make: an actual objective truth. Failing that, to then make a falsehood appear to be a truth, so obvious, and so accepted by so many others, that it is widely perceived to be an objective, absolute truth. A reality. He wanted to actually make a new reality, but, of course, he couldn't do that. The best he could do was to fake it. Thus, the lie.
The Modernist Heresy opened up with the splitting of philosophy - the quest for ultimate truth - into the two separate disciplines of material science (the study of things) and theological science (the study of the causes of things.) Material science increasingly distanced itself from theological science, and eventually set itself against it. Or, at least, most of the major or most recognized spokesmen for material science did that. Scientism, a term coined by Hayek for the pseudo-science that was born of arrogant scientific dismissal of the whole of reality in favor of the pure study of matter, came into being through the favoring of scientific consensus rather than scientific proofs.
Through this not so gradual blurring of the need for evidences and proofs, the popular view of what the original term philosophy stood for, was radically changed, perhaps forever. Where originally philosophy was the seeking of ultimate truth, or wisdom, it came to be seen merely as a life-guiding set of rules for men, or groups, or societies. And there were multiple philosophy s, none seen as superior to any other. In the popular view, a philosophy became a guide to be accepted or rejected, or ignored. You could adopt a religious philosophy, a hedonistic philosophy, a nihilistic philosophy, an evil philosophy, a conquest-based philosophy, or, no philosophy.
The original intent of the original liar was to make a new reality. The later intent of some of his demons was to make a new philosophy.
Were Satan hoped to be like God and make a new reality, Marx intended to build upon preexisting error, create a new philosophy, and then force the world into it. His major tool for doing so was his Communist Manifesto, which was and is a polemical inducement to violent revolution against the whole of the status quo, whatever that may be at any historic point in time.
There have been many, many lies, since that first deception in the Garden, and man is worse off for it. Each lie becomes easier, both for the teller to tell, and for the hearer to hear. To be successful in its deception, the lie must, as a first step, seem to be a subjective truth, reasonably arrived at, or somehow intuitively true. When enough minds are infected with the lie, for them, or for many of them, in their minds, it is real. It has, for them, become an objective truth. That changes everything. That is how Sodom and Gomorrah became socially degenerate and morally depraved.
But Satan, the father of lies, didn't go away after the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. He remained on the earth, walking up and down on it, seeking the ruin of souls. Since then, the lie has become more sophisticated and nuanced, and accepted, thanks largely to the work of evil men like Machiavelli, Hegel and Marx. "The Ends Justify the Means", the "Hegelian Dialectic", and "Workers of the Word, Unite!" are the deep, deep lies that form the basis for achieving dictatorship, enslaving peoples and "organizing" - through lies - for revolution.
The lie has become a political tool. It is today perhaps the most important and the most powerful of all political tools. The big lie is today most effectively spread by the disciples, or sub-demons, of Machiavelli, Hegel and Marx.
The seeds of lies grow most strongly in weak minds, or in young minds; the younger the better. Satan knows that if he can get a lie into the soul of a child early enough, he can make a new disciple. That is why education, and strict control of education, is so important to the lying manipulators of the masses. Note well that education is not listed among the limited and enumerated powers of the American federal government in Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution. That means that the public school system, and all the federal tax money portioned out to the states for public schools, is all un-Constitutional and illegal. So, how did the American public school system even come to be? Through lies.
The American public school system is nothing but a government indoctrination program aimed at producing unhappy anti-Americans, and bitter factions of various kind. It teaches false versions of American and world history. It teaches "Social Justice" through redistribution of private property. It stirs racial animosity toward whites, racial guilt in whites toward blacks, and it promotes illicit sex as a recreational activity, sexual perversion as normalcy, and it teaches religion as backward, as superstition and as a form of ignorant bigotry. It promotes all sorts of false scenarios of ecological doom for the whole planet, and it promotes government as the only solution to these problems. And all of this is believed, by most of the children. Most children believe whatever their teachers teach them. Meanwhile, in favor of these government programs promoting pure falsehood, normal scholastic education has been left in the dust; scholastic tests prove it.
But public education is just one branch of the ever increasingly well organized demonic system for the advancement of lies. We have the news media to consider. I first became aware, way back in the '50s, that the mainstream news media had gone Marxist, but it had actually gone completely Marxist long before that. Senator Joe McCarthy pointed it out, but then he was politically brought down and virtually destroyed by, guess who, the Marxist mainstream media. After the fall of the Soviet Union and the opening of Soviet archives, we saw that Senator McCarthy was correct in all of his charges; but that is a fact that is not widely known, because, it is purposely left out of Marxist public education, and it is purposely not reported at all in the Marxist mainstream news media. McCarthy is still, to this day, held up by Marxist educators, the Marxist media and by predominantly Marxist entertainment and celebrity as the poster-child of wild-eyed conspiratorial fringe groups. But it was all true.
The American mainstream news media, like American public education, has adopted and taken to heart Marx's statement: "The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it!", and they have made this point into a superior and primary mission affecting how they report the news. They have made themselves into Marxian propagandists, in the honest (but wrong) belief that they are making America and the world better. Their ultimate goal is not to report the news as simple news, but to slant or spin the news to affect social change, toward Marxian "social justice," redistribution of private property and the ultimate achievement of social utopia.
Today we see the result all around us, in the gigantic and growing segment of the population that makes up the moron vote. Unthinking adults who believe whatever they have been educated in, and who believe whatever the mainstream media says. Not unlike the ancient citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah, they simply don't know any better.
The combined effect of indoctrination rather than education, propaganda rather than news, and politicians lying and getting away with it, over multiple generations, is to produce and grow the Moron Vote. Voting-age adults who are incompetent in their thinking, incapable of old-time critical thinking and convinced in error. Convinced in multiple major errors. So convinced that they are actually arrogant in their assumed "knowledge" of things.
All of the moron voters are not low level working class or indigent; many of them are well-paid workers, managers, professionals, scientists, academics, etc. What they all have in common is belief in well-known "facts" that are in fact completely false. It's not their fault.
They were raised in it.
It was done on purpose.
Since God is at the center of objective truth, and since the very existence of absolute truth is now popularly denied, God Himself must be denied by the liars, most of whom do not even know that they are liars. But, if absolute truth does not exist, then it logically follows that God does not exist. Religion is dismissed as a silly superstition at best, and a dangerous social threat to Marxian social and pseudo-scientific "progress" at worst.
Today we see that the new ruling class, which, Constitutionally, is not even supposed to exist, seeks either to abolish our national religion or control it. The Democrat Party, not a few Republicans, education, news media, entertainment and celebrity, all, generally treat Christianity and believing Christians with open mockery, contempt, scorn and ridicule; or they highlight and over-emphasize hipocricy among Christians while ignoring their own. This is a major, concerted, multi-front assault on the main religion of America. It is working.
The Self-Fulfilling Prophesy. Satan sought to be like God and make a new reality. Marx sought to follow Satan, and make a new "philosophy," or a guide for humanity to live by. Both sought to change Truth, or, failing that, to change man's perception of Truth. That Satan's new reality and Marx's new philosophy are false is beside the point. Untold millions, perhaps billions, have been brought up in these lies, and they have been made into liars themselves. Many, perhaps most of them really believe they are making the world a better place, through lies. The ends justify the means.
Having been trained in it from birth, they give more credence to material science than to theological science. They believe in the "social justice" contained in principle of redistribution of private property. They believe more in equality of physical things than in equality in rights, remedies, requirements and responsibilities before the law. Having been trained in denial of absolutes, they no longer exercises what used to be known as adult judgment; in fact, adult judgment is demonized as the new sin of judgmental-ism. They no longer properly know right from wrong.
The Constitution, like Scripture, is a fixed, written document, unchanged, and written to be followed. That makes it is an absolute, and in the new moron thinking, there can be no absolutes. That makes the Constitution, like Scripture, more of an interesting historical document than something to be used as a life-guide or a legal guide. Like Scripture, in the moron thinking, the Constitution has taken a large step in the direction of the ash heap of history.
Let's look at the positions of the political Parties of our elected office holders, candidates for office, and us - meaning you - to see how moronified (if that's a word) they, and you, may have become, in this new world of no absolutes. (Of course, we already know that I am perfect.)
These three major errors: Darwinism, Freudianism and Marxism - formed the materialistic, pseudo-scientific basis for all the major governmental frauds, scams and lies that followed, each one growing the government, each one migrating power upward, from the people to the government, each one concentrating governmental authority and power into a smaller and smaller section of government. All sorts of "green" scams, environmental scams, ecological disaster scams and so forth; anthropomorphic global warming being perhaps the biggest of them all. There is no empirical scientific evidence to back any of them up. In point of fact, strict empiricism disproves them all. Like the larger foundational lies, each of these frauds is based not on science, but on scientific consensus. That's it. It is the new Democracy in Science.
Democratization of Science should be no real surprise these days, since we are currently experiencing the democratization of our Constitutional Republic at the hands of our quasi-Marxist elected "representatives." Where did that come from?
So where do the major political Parties, officials and candidates for office stand on all of this?
Abortion is loved by the whole of the Democrat Party. Abortion on demand, through the whole term of pregnancy, is a major, major plank in their political platform; it is what they stand for and what they are about. They love it; they sponsor it; they champion it; they promote it; they will defend it to the death. If all of this is not true, they have a very funny way of showing it. Legal abortion in America would not even exist if it were not for the enthusiatic sponsorship Democrat Party.
Abortion is not opposed by the Republican Party leadership, and what has come to be known as The Establishment Republican Party. They are actually embarrassed by that part of the Republican voting electorate that actually hold human life to be somehow sacred. They prefer to compromise with the Democrat lovers of abortion on all life issues. They see themselves as elder statesmen, more sophisticated than those stupid voters who still believe in God. Political compromise, they say, is the only way to get things done. Why, heavens to Betsy; mustn't be called misogynistic in the Marxist media.
(Note that abortion is not listed in Article 1 Section 8 of the limited and enumerated powers of the federal government, and therefore should not even be addressed, either way, in federal legislated law, federal executed law or federal adjudicated law. Note also that that fact does not seem to matter to either political Party, nor to any of the three current co-equal branches of government.)
Sodomy, homosexuality and sexual perversion is loved by the whole of the Democrat Party. Homosexual marriage, public acceptance of open perversion, special, unique legal rights for members of the GLBTFC "community" form a major, major plank in their political platform; it is what they stand for and what they are about. They love it; they sponsor it; they champion it; they promote it; they will defend it to the death. If all of that is not true, they have a very funny way of showing it. Open public homosexuality would not even exist if it were not for the enthusiastic sponsorship of the Democrat Party.
Public homosexuality and even homosexual marriage is not opposed by the Republican Party leadership and the Establishment Republican Party. They are actually embarrassed by that part of the Republican voting electorate that actually hold any form of illicit sex to be somehow sinful. They prefer to compromise with the Democrat lovers of sodomy on all homosexual issues. They see themselves as elder statesmen, more sophisticated than those stupid voters who still believe in God. Political compromise, they say, is the only way to get things done. Why, heavens to Betsy; mustn't risk be called homophobic in the Marxist media.
(Note that sodomy is not listed in Article 1 Section 8 of the limited and enumerated powers of the federal government, and therefore should not even be addressed, either way, in federal legislated law, federal executed law or federal adjudicated law. Note also that that fact does not seem to matter to either political Party, nor to any of the three current co-equal branches of government.)
Financial Catastrophe, in the form of a conjured-up banking collapse, a major industry bankruptcy, or any too-big-to-fail business crisis, is loved by the whole of the Democrat Party. Appearing to be prepared to "rescue" America from economic catastrophic possibilities forms a major, major plank in their political platform. They love it; they cause it; they fake it; they take advantage of it; they will defend the need to fix it to the death. If all of that is not true, they have a very funny way of showing it. Bank bail-outs, bail-outs of major crony-Capitalist companies and global emergency spending would not even exist if it were not for the inventiveness and enthusiastic sponsorship of the Democrat Party.
Trumped-up, crisis-induced, spending-to-the-rescue scams are never opposed by the Republican Party leadership and the Establishment Republican Party. They are actually panicked, or pretend to be panicked, right on queue, by whatever crisis is presented by the opposition. In point of fact, they, too seek to grow the government and improve their own status in life. They, too, are big government progressives. They prefer to cooperate with the Democrat lovers of crisis on all crisis issues. They see themselves as elder statesmen, more sophisticated than those stupid voters who are not so easily panicked, and who do not believe that any bank or any business is too big to fail. Why, it's a crisis, after all. Political cooperation, they say, is the only way to save America and save the world from economic doom.
Environmental Catastrophe, in the form of a conjured-up Global Warming, Ozone Holes, Acid Rain, Melting Ice-Caps, Endangered Species, Polution, etc., etc., etc., is loved by the whole of the Democrat Party. Appearing to be prepared to "rescue" America from ecologically catastrophic possibilities forms a major, major plank in their political platform. They love it; they create it; they fake it; they take advantage of it; they will defend the need to fix it to the death. If all of that is not true, they have a very funny way of showing it. The EPA, Carbon Credits, International Environmental Treaties, Weather and Climate Legislation and global emergency spending would not even exist if it were not for the inventiveness and enthusiastic sponsorship of the Democrat Party.

They are actually panicked, or pretend to be panicked, right on queue, by whatever crisis is presented by the opposition.

They prefer to cooperate with the Democrat lovers of crisis on all crisis issues. They see themselves as elder statesmen, more sophisticated than those stupid voters who are not so easily panicked, and who do not believe that the weather can be legislated or that the climate can be regulated, or that the earth is actually dieing. Why, it's a global crisis, after all. Political cooperation, they say, is the only way to save America and save the world, and maybe the universe.
You cannot pick a program of the current administration that is not based on lies. If you made a list of all the public statements the current President has made since taking office that were not lies, you would be staring at a blank sheet of paper. The long and growing list of scandals about which the President claims total ignorance and which it is not possible for him to not be deeply involved in is scandalous in and of itself. Fast and Furious; Benghazi; the completely un-Constitutional Obamacare law; the illegal way Obamacare was even passed; the un-Constitutional and criminal activity of selectively enforcing various legislated laws; the refusal to enforce standing border security law; the refusal to enforce standing immigration law; the purposeful legal interference with states trying to protect their own international borders; the release of criminals into the population; the IRS scandal; the NSA scandal; the federal government project to get George Zimmerman murdered; DOJ leadership in Alinskyite community organizing for anti-Zimmerman rallies and protests; the purposeful destruction of the US dollar through "Quantitative Easing"; the purposeful destabilizing of Middle East countries; the purposeful arming of Israel's enemies; etc., etc., etc.
The Democrat Party loves it; the Marxist media loves it and supports it all; none of it is ever strongly or affectively opposed by the Republican Party leadership and the Establishment Republican Party. Again, they cooperate with the anti-Constitutional activities of the Democrat Party. They form a "gang of eight" to keep the borders open for the benefit of the Democrat Party, who hope to gain untold millions of new Democrat votes from the eventual amnesty that will be granted.
The Republican leadership stands for nothing. They are worse than the Democrats; they are lukewarm, and disgusting.
The only reason for hope is the persistent, undefeatable, undeniable existence of absolute truth. Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, hopes against hope to become king, or dictator, over the burned-out remains of the America he despises, or more; or, of something. Some think he is a Moslem; I think he is a manipulator of Moslems. Just as he is a manipulator of Marxists, of agent provocateurs, of useful idiots, of the media, and of the American moron vote. He is a maker of factions, a divider, a class warrior and a manipulator of factions. He manipulates races, unions, teachers, college students, entertainers and celebrities, the hoity-toity and other fools. He manipulates crony-capitalist captains of industry, heads of banks and big money financiers. And not a few foreign dictators or would-be dictators.
But, you see, all the king's lies, and all the king's liars cannot make an objective truth out of a falsehood. He cannot fool all of the people all of the time. We have spoken elsewhere herein about the "thirds" all populations are broken into, and we won't go into all of that again here. But the current thirds in America, pertinent to this discussion, are the conservative third, and Marxist-dominated third, and the moron vote third. Right now the lies have it; the falsehoods are riding high in the saddle. But it just may be that Truth is beginning to dawn anew in a lot of minds that have been ignorant or unaware of it.
Some of the other two thirds are beginning to come our way. I can feel it. All of them won't change, that's for sure. But we don't need much. We should not waste time trying to convince the moron vote. Forget it. Leave it to the Truth. The inner-city blacks are never going to join us. The hopelessly immoral are never going to join us. The mainstream media is never going to join us. The Republican leadership is never going to join us. We should not bother reaching out to them, but rather we should concentrate on defeating them, in the voting booth. Which raises another question: that regarding voter fraud.
Democrats know all about those quotes; they are, after all, Marxists.
Today we know that George Soros funded a Democrat project to get Democrats elected or appointed to all the positions in local and state offices that certify elections. We also know that in past elections ACORN and union workers bussed illegals and others to polling places, all over America, and that lots and lots of voters later turned out to be dead people, or people with names like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. And everyone knows of the false Democrat charge of voter intimidation over the demand for a simple picture ID for voting, so that they can commit more and more voter fraud, over and over and over again.
All this means is that we need to get more involved and pay more attention to the voting places, in all elections; and I think we're beginning to do that. It's time to take over the grass roots of America.
America is waking up from a stupor. Some are shaking off the drug-like affects of indoctrination and propaganda, and they are beginning to see the light of truth. Our third is now thoroughly aroused. Some of the enemy third is switching sides. Some of the morons are beginning to educate themselves. I think Obamacare is responsible for most of it.
Much can happen between now and 2016; we may see if Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, has the guts to declare an emergency and suspend the election on some pretext. If no crisis or war grows or can be magnified to the level of a successful call for martial law between now and then, suspending the election will be the only option left to him, again, if he has the guts to do it. We will see.
Stick to your guns; pray for America; vote the Constitution.
Bless the Lord God, and give thanks to the Truth, Who will set us free.

Thank you for your effort to educate the general public about the evil of the Democratic Party. I am also proud that you are such a strong and courageous Catholic.
Before I forget, and the reason that I am writing you is to point out an error in the first line of the next to the last paragraph of your article. I believe you meant “2014 or 2016”, not 2012.
I have read most of your articles. Let me make a suggestion to you that I would really appreciate, and I bet most of your reader would appreciate. The suggestion is to include an executive summary at the beginning of each article. I know I am not the first person to mention that your articles are quite long. For the first time reader that is real good because it adds to the understanding of what you are trying to convey. I like your links to supporting material and previous articles. This material is very educational.
If you don’t like the idea of an executive summary, another solution would be to write a brief and concise article with many more links to supporting material.
I am amassed at your breath of knowledge on what is happening in our culture. I believe the Holy Spirit is really working in you. If you don’t pray to the Holy Spirit for guidance before writing each article I would suggest that you do.
By the way we I think we have a lot in common. I am a retired Computer Programmer. I started out with Remington Rand Univac in 1960 as a computer operator and retired in 2000 from SAIC. I have worked with all the government agencies including NASA (11 years), Navy (12 years) and other branches of service.
Thank you again, and may God Bless you!

Thank you so much; I have corrected the date. What I meant to be addressing was the 2016 election year. I guess I got my two most potentially catastrophic, or most potentially salvific election years mixed up.
I'm not sure what you mean by an executive summary, unless you mean a sort of brief "book report" on the whole article. I could only do that after the whole thing is finished, because I don't know what all I'm going to write until after I write it. I suppose at the end, I could try to summarize all that I said into some small package, and put it up at the front. Is that what you mean? That would make the whole thing longer, and a bit more repetitive.
I do pray for guidance and what I'm supposed to say. It is good, currently, that I am still working at my age, because it forces me to take breaks from whatever I'm writing. My evening prayers and my morning offering always involve seeking inspiration and guidance in how to reach someone out there who is seeking truth. Almost every day I get a long enough break between working to pray a whole rosary, with the same intent. I am certain that prayer is what keeps me productive in the limited time I am here at the computer.
As to your suggestion regarding links, that is something I have been wrestling with for some time. My most recent effort in that regard involves the right-hand column sets of links that appear on every page. The second set, which are the Major Site Challenge links, each open up a whole slew of related articles. When one of them is opened up, a first set of right-column links appears of all of those articles. I know what you mean; I just haven't found a perfect way to do it yet. Once you get a whole lot of webpages out there it becomes difficult to control and categorize and even properly refer to them. I spend a lot of time trying to remember where I said something I know I already said, but I don't remember where.
And your career sounds similar to mine; I started out an operator/programmer in old-time RPG and Assembler; then moved on to PL/1, COBOL, CICS and various minor languages, databases and software tools. During the Y2K crisis I was elevated to the lofty title of Principle Consultant, but all that really meant was a COBOL/CICS dinosaur programmer who was from out of town. After Y2K was resolved, COBOL/CICS began to whither, and suddenly the big Consultant dropped back to being a legacy system support programmer, until outsourcing came along.
I can't complain about my career; it was good work with good people. I also enjoyed trucking; the only hard part was being away from home and not being able to keep up the property while I was gone. Now I'm happy.
Thank you again for your suggestions and good food for thought.

You referred to the GLBTFC community.
What does the FC stand for?

This is a reply to my previous message.
What I meant by an executive summary was a brief summary of your article. The reason is that most people have only a limited amount of time each day to read things on the internet. If you provide a short summary they can decide if they want to read the entire article. If they don;t have time, at least they will be able to understand what your major point were.
Also, I bet there are people that would be glad to help you organize the material you have written. They could create indexes to reference the material in different ways, If you know what you want, you might just ask your readers if they have time to help you. You could work with them on an individual basis.
Thank you for taking the time to respond. Keep up the good work.

It may require more study, but at first glance that looks like too much work for too little reward. For instance, just in this one webpage, there is more than one point. Indeed, there are more than ten points. There are big ones, like the relationship between good and evil, and the relationship between truth and falsehood. But then there are all the many nuanced points pertaining to how the moron vote came to be so large as to become a major political force to be reckoned with. There are all the various "branches" of the purposeful teaching or reporting of error, not all of evil intent, but all contributing to evil just the same. I don't know how you put all of that into a nutshell.
A long time ago I gave up trying to reach the semi-literates and those with a short attention span, and those who are not really seeking answers to serious questions. To me, and I may be wrong, the lion's share of the moron vote is just lost. If America ever gets out of this mess and radically cuts bureaucracy and government dependency, these are the people who will immediately suffer, because they don't know how to operate independently as American citizens are supposed to do. Many of them don't think they can; some of them probably cannot.
I don't know what to do about that. Revolutionaries, be they Marxist, Moslem, Anarchist or whatever, hope to capitalize on their utter dependency and their loss of benefits. We'll have to cross that bridge when we come to it, if God allows us to get there.
All I know how to do is speak the truth, and I have learned that the only ones who will properly hear it are those properly disposed to do so, and that means, literate people with an interest in the topic. Literate people who are fired up or motivated to find something can fairly quickly scan or "speed read" through a book or a longer article and get the meat of it, and decide if its worth more time for more careful reading. That's what I tend to do.
The idea of "summarizing" some 460 + webpages is fairly daunting.

If America ever gets out of this mess and radically cuts bureaucracy and government dependency, these are the people who will immediately suffer, because they don't know how to operate independently as American citizens are supposed to do. Many of them don't think they can; some of them probably cannot."
The whole idea of this article is that people are being fooled. The "morn vote" consists of people who were fooled, so being "moron" is not their fault. Can we just write them off, and not think about them, as if they did not exist? Do they not really exist? Are we not called to come to the aid of our brothers and sisters in this life?

The primary (but not sole) reason the hypothetical moron voter cannot take care of himself is that he has been trained to believe that he cannot take care of himself. That is the result of living a life of low expectations, where nothing is expected of him and nothing is required of him. Just about everyone can do more - far more - than he thinks he can do. All he has to do is, begin doing it. We learn by doing. If we take away all the benefits the moron vote depends on, they will begin depending on themselves. In my fallible opinion, very very few of them would truly need assistance in surviving and eventually prospering.
But if they reject family, and therefore the support of family - if they reject religion and therefore the support of religious community - if they reject morality and therefore representative law - if they reject charitable organizations and therefore the support of charity - I really don't know what can be done for them. If they prayed, they could pray for a Good Samaritan to happen upon them.
We cannot modify the national Constitution and require it to take care of every individual. The whole design of this nation supports the notion of an independent, self-supporting and self-sustaining citizenry.

If you want to build a completely independent and personally owned actual website, like this one, this is how you do it.
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.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

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.
My Proposed Constitutional Amendment to neutralize the enemy within. A proposed Constitutional Amendment to get anti-Constitutionalists out of power and authority.
The process of becoming a Godless Nation is the sure path to National Insanity. The Godless Nation: Can a totally secularized people even know right from wrong?
Regarding The President We Need, The President We Deserve, and God's Judgment. I can describe the President we need; what we have now is the President we deserve.
Compromise with Evil begins the ultimate death spiral. Compromise on any Vital Principle leads to death, for individual souls and for cultures.
Tolerating intolerance of America is what Americans are being trained to do. In tolerating intolerance of themselves some Americans think they are proving something or other.
Why is this American Christian nation not called a Christian nation? This American Christian nation is oddly referred to as something other than a Christian nation. Why?
Chastity Vs. The Modern World: Signs of a Culture in Decline. Looking more closely at what is REALLY at the heart of American political debate today.
The Chastity Vs Sophistication division: Wisdom Vs Elitist Celebritwittery. 'Naïve' Chastity Vs Sophistication of the Elite. Lechery, promiscuity, perversion are Sophisticated; chastity equates to naiveté. See?
Of Lies and Liars: All the devil's lies, and all the devil's liars cannot make a new truth. He can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but he can't fool all of the people all of the time.
Constitutionalism: Sovereign Citizenship and Limited Representative Government. The philosophy that government derives authority from citizens and is permanently limited is called Constitutionalism.
A minority tail furiously wags a majority dog unto death. In bending over backwards to mollify and molly-codle minorities, the majority forgets it is the majority.
The Christ-centered life, the godless life, and the inevitable ungodly life. When any Godly nation moves into godlessness, the inevitable end is an ungodly nation.
American survival requires bold, take it to the enemy leadership. What we need is radical, revolutionary take it to the enemy leadership just for national survival itself.
Undoing the damage and righting the wrongs, wherever possible. Undoing the damage must follow national survival (assuming national survival.)
American Foreign Policy: what it was, what it is, what it should be. Obamunists and Marxocrats turned American foreign policy into an absolute travesty.
Fix the VA by switching all Government Coverage to VA Coverage. Restricting Congress, the Presidency and the Court to Existing Military Coverage should fix the VA pretty quick.
Fix Military Pay by tieing it to Congressional Pay and Raises. Tying Presidential, Congressional, Judicial and Military to One Pay Scale should Fix Military Pay.
Regarding off-duty military concealed-carry of firearms. With Moslem potential Jihadists in our own military ranks, all American military should be armed at all times.
Sheriffs and Veterans and Citizens; Oh My! County Sheriffs and Veterans should together form volunteer Minute-Man like County Militia units of the free citizenry.
Patience. Be not afraid. A Glorious Sunrise is coming. The Son rose on a Sunday, following a Friday Crucifixion. Our Sunrise will come after much suffering; it will come with our reawakening to Truth.
"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
