Formerly the Thinking Catholic Strategic Center
For well over a hundred years, most of us have been becoming increasingly fat, dumb and happy. We sit on our fat asses eating pizza and watching football. In between our love of the unimportant, we ingest without thought all the ever increasing scientific, educational and news-reporting propaganda diet of
on, and on, and on. All of these seemingly disparate topics and agendas and causes have the same controlling source, that being, the movement away from Constitutional American citizen independence, and into Marxist collectivism, social-sameness mediocrity, citizen dependency and poverty.
Big government, in other words. Bigger and bigger government. An ever increasing centralization of government power, ever increasingly ready to be seized by the would be dictator who is ruthless enough to try to seize it. Every single increase in government scope and size involves another migration of power from the people to the government.
Since Woodrow Wilson, it has been building to this, right under our noses, and now we have Comrade President Obama, peace be upon him, trying hard to push America over the brink. The Democrat Party, which started out defending Slavery, even to the point of seeking to destroy American national unity, has kept that anti-United States bias to this day, although they've kept it under wraps for political reasons. Current Democrat Party leadership hatred of Constitutional America is clearly discernible in Democrat Party political platform planks, agendas, programs and actions. They may wear American flag lapel pins and sing patriotic songs for the cameras, but they are, today, Marxist to the core. And Marxism is, in every single particular, absolutely and completely antithetical to the whole of the American Constitution.
One of the major Marxocrat "Great Leaps Forward" in contributing to bring Constitutional America down had to be the appointment by the Friend of Stalin, Leftist, racist President FDR of the rabidly racist Ku Klux Klansman Hugo Black to the Supreme Court. We talked about Justice Black's completely invented "Constitutional principle" of Separation of Church and State in that webpage. You can read the details there, but the gist of it is this: that "Constitutional" principle is and always was completely un-Constitutional. And nobody noticed. The citizenry had already been dumbed-down enough and distracted enough to just accept whatever the Court said, and trust them.
Why, exactly, was that particular decision so important in the ongoing history of our national decline? Because it became the point of the Democrat Party turning from openly supporting racism to instead subverting the one national underpinning that opposed racism, the very thing that brought about the end of slavery in America, that being, our national Judeo-Christian Ethos. That underlying national ethos is the very thing that Tocqueville had determined was the source of "American Greatness," which he had determined stemmed from "American Christian Goodness."
From the initial establishment of Justice Black's stupid assed "Constitutional principle" of Separation of Church and State the Marxocrat leadership was able, ever increasingly, to oppose and even demonize our national religion while still appearing to be principled men. It was a very sly, very chameleon-like form of political treachery. They were even able to turn it all around and make it look like they were the civil rights advocates and their political opponents were the real racists. They created and fed the myth that it was "Right Wing Christan Fundamentalists" who posed the greatest danger to minorities; not the ever increasingly godless Marxocrats.
To highlight our American Constitutional beginning point, our national foundationstone before that decision, let's just take a little trip down memory lane:
Well, that was then and this is now.
Look around, right here, right now. We clearly do not have a Christian government any more. Are we still a Christian people? Can you tell? Would you not agree that it should be obvious enough to immediately see?
The government of the Founding era was clearly Christian. As Tocqueville and everyone else noted around the time of the Civil War, the American people were clearly Christian. Now, today, although most of us may still profess to be Christian, it is most certainly not obvious to any objective observer that we are indeed Christian.
Christians are guided by the Christian moral ethos. True Christians are open and obvious in their public Christianity, and their decent public behavior attests to their high Christian morality. Marxocrat Party leadership, the SLIMC1 , TTRSTF4 , academics, popular entertainment and the world of celebrityhood are all obviously guided by the ethos of BMDFP10 and godless, ends-justify-the-means Marxism. That is their moral standard, and that is what appears to be ours.
Think about it. If not for Marxocrat Party sponsorship and political action,
These are just some of the abominable things the Marxocrat Party stands for. The Republicrat Party, in sharp contrast to the Marxocrats, stands for nothing at all.
Such purely evil and nonsensical things should not and could not even exist in a truly Christian nation with a truly representative government.
Unless the people were asleep at the wheel.
We the People are represented by no one in Washington DC. The Republicrat Party follows the ideology of the Pompous Ass, Bill O'Reilly, which is to say, no ideology whatsoever. (Mustn't be a rigid ideologue; heavens no!) That is to say, they drift with the political wind, having no foundation or principle to stand on. They continuously play defense, and they only react to whatever the Marxocrats do, and in the end they "compromise," which is the political term they prefer to the term "caving in."
They have betrayed the Constitution and they have abandoned us.
How can they do this and keep getting elected? By trickery; that goes for both Parties. We the People need to realize that they are all in it for themselves alone. Most of them are just professional politicians, just as most all of our Journalists are just professional liars.
If a journalist like a Cronkite or a Rather gets caught in a major lie, even if he gets fired, its all for show. It doesn't matter if a Marxist politician or a Marxist journalist loses an election or gets fired from some post, because he is still held to be a hero among his Marxist comrades, and he will certainly not go hungry. Journalists and politicians just change jobs with each other, or become paid consultants or public speakers, run for some other office, write a book, teach a course, Dean a college, etc., etc., etc., and they will periodically be feted and memorialized by their peers with awards and big dinners and honorary degrees and so forth.
There is no such thing as disgrace among Marxists, and it must be remembered that even Republicrats are not far from being Marxists, if indeed they are not already Marxists. For a Marxocrat to get caught in some scandal or some journalistic malpractice is no disgrace; they might get a medal for it from their comrades; they were "up for the struggle" and sacrificed themselves for the cause; the ends justify the means, and they tried to advance general Marxism. That makes them heros among Marxists.
Time to wake up, and fix bayonets. If we never take the offensive, we will never win. That means we will surely lose. The Republicrats are not going to do it. That means We the People must do it ourselves, or it won't get done and we will lose it all.
The battle begins with recognition of the enemy right here among us.
If we don't even recognize that, the battle is lost before it begins.
If we don't get back to a no Party America then the American Constitution is doomed, because both Parties have already betrayed the Constitution and their own oaths of office multiple times.
The 2014 mid-term and the 2016 Presidential elections will be decisive, assuming the Constitution survives to see both of those elections through to the end. If either House of Congress is controlled by either Marxocrat-backed or by Republicrat-backed candidates, America will be toast. Similarly, if the Presidency is occupied by either a Marxocrat-backed or a Republicrat-backed candidate, America will be toast.
Marxocrats are godless Marxists, and Republicrats are, at the very least, completely unprincipled. Remember the words of Tocqueville, Madison, Adams, Washington, etc., quoted above. The Constitution was written for a religious and moral people only; it is completely inadequate for the self-government of any other kind of people.
It was intended to be a government with high citizen participation; that means we have to wake up from our slumber and get involved. This will require a preparatory fasting and prayer for most of us, involving honest repentance and re-evangelization of ourselves, reconciliation with God, and becoming more of what we are supposed to be, which is a People Of God.
Don't think so much of somehow getting God in our corner; God has never moved. Think rather of returning to Covenant ourselves, and then don't worry about God doing His part; it is we who have failed, not Him. He is dependable; it is we who are not. When we get ourselves back into a state of grace, and into proper alignment of our will with His will, everything else will take care of itself.
We talked about the President we need earlier, with the guts to do the hard things involved in dismantling this monstrous extra-Constitutional Marxist administrative bureaucracy that is taking the place of most of our legitimate government today, and take it all down in the face of screaming, shrieking, high intensity opposition from all quarters.
It has been building for a hundred years, because we have allowed it to continue to build, and now it is ready to destroy us completely. It couldn't have been done through the old-time Marxist stratagem of violent revolution, so it went underground and did it through lies and underhanded treachery; and now here we are. We cannot take a hundred years to undo this. We are on the brink of the cliff.
It is time to get radical, and "revolutionary" in the restoration of Constitutional America.
We said as much in fixing it all or losing it all, and we went down the line in how to shut down federal agencies and bureaucracies in the Fixing America pages and the Cut the Spending pages. It must be done suddenly, even brutally.
A no-Party Congress must put a bill to Fast Track the Fair Tax on a no-Party President's desk immediatly, and he must immediately sign it into law. With that one action alone, the government will be immediately and completely funded into the future, our abominable tax code will be eliminated and probably 90% of our "over-governing" of the people will be eliminated, along with untold tons of graft, payoffs, earmarks and lobbyist back-scratching. A huge part of the professional politician's Old Boy's Club will be broken.
Most importantly, it would kill the IRS.
Declarations of un-Constitutionality should then follow, rapidly, in a long list. We've said it before, in multiple pages. The President should simply declare Obamacare to be un-Constitutional, and therefore null, void, and no law from that day forward. Because it really is un-Constitutional. There is no need to formally legislate any repeal of something that clearly violates the Constitution on its face. The same thing could be done to the legal precedent of the Black Court's Separation of Church and State invention. And, the same thing could be done to the legal precedents of Roe V Wade and Doe V Bolton, for abortion is nowhere mentioned in the federal Constitution, and the Court had no legitimate legal business addressing it as it did, and establishing such a horrendous precedent in federal law, affecting everybody everywhere in the whole nation.
Just go down the list in the Cut the Spending pages; whole federal agencies and giant bureaucracies could be eliminated with a simple declaration of un-Constitutionality.
None of this would be without pain, and certainly none of it would come to pass without very strong opposition, from all quarters. It would, almost overnight, turn the Washington DC area from the richest neighborhood in America, with the most per capita millionaires, into a deserted, near ghost town, with severe local recession if not depression. The only reason Washington DC is a boom town is that's where the federal government resides, and the federal government is very, very large, and very, very well paid. By the rest of us.
Those who scream the loudest may be the Marxocrat-invented, carefully tended and grown dependent class, made up of what Rush dubbed the Santa Clause vote. They don't know how to make it on their own, No, really. They really are dependent. Softening the blow would be the monthly Fair Tax "Pre-bate" payment to all heads of households; but that in all likelihood would not equal all the multiple "benefits" so many able bodied people now get from the government. They might actually have to work.
On the bright side, with the near elimination of federal bureaucracy and the elimination of income taxes and corporate taxes, there should be a record setting business boom going on, with lots and lots of jobs available, and lots of opportunities to start new businesses.
That means lots of pennies being saved, which equates to lots of new wealth being created where it didn't exist before.
We're never going to get there unless we put God first in our lives. All you have to do is look around to see how far We the People have fallen.
Some years ago, I don't remember the year, we got tickets to see a Bett Midlar concert in Cincinnati. We are still stunned. All we knew about her was that she had a beautiful voice and a terrific singing talent; we had no idea what a filthy mouth she had, nor did we have any idea what kind of following she had. The coliseum was packed with screaming, shrieking homosexuals, in all sorts of outlandish and even obscene costumes and attire. A whole coliseum was filled with these people. That lovely, beautiful voice, the whole performance, was destroyed for us by being surrounded by vulgarity and obscenity.
This was not small.
It made us think back to when our nephew Mark was little, and his favorite rock stars were a group called Kiss. At the time, we were mildly surprised by the weird makeup and costumes, but, not knowing any better, we thought it was a kid thing, and they were like some sort of comic-book super-hero characters or something. After seeing Bett in the full light of day, we took another look at Kiss; and it all seemed demonic to us. Even the SS in their name was shaped like the lightneing bolt S's of the Nazi SS, and the whole persona now looked evil.
But it wasn't recognized by adults as evil at the time.
At least not by us.
Bett's beautiful voice was so attractive to us before that concert. Kiss was so attractive to Mark when he was a little boy.
We need to look at everything anew. Everything this sitting government has done and stands for is a lie of some kind. No exceptions. Very little of what you see in popular entertainment today is what it appears to be. Nothing in your child's official public school education is dependable.
It's time to get back to basics.
At what point do we all, as a people, need to recognize evil on stage, and everybody roundly condemn it, before it is too late for our whole culture? I don't really know. We never gave Bett Midlar a thought before attending that concert. Mark, as a little boy, didn't know evil when he saw it, especially when it was all dressed up, on stage, with everybody applauding.
When you think about all the theaters, and whole large stadiums and coliseums full of people who paid good money to see these kinds of acts, over and over again, all over the country, that ought to tell us that we've been spiritually sleeping too soundly and too long.
Like I said at the beginning of this, today, America demands bold, take it to the enemy leadership. What is required is wild, radical, revolutionary, take it to the enemy leadership just for American national survival itself.
Is it already too late?
Is such a bold, committed leadership currently available, ready, willing and able to do what is necessary for Christian America?
We may be about to find out, one way or another.
Taking it to the enemy means citizen action, not just waiting around for political leadership. It means doing to them what they have been doing to us, ever increasingly, for the last hundred years, since Woodrow Wilson. It means being more prepared than ever to "shake the dust" once you realize that whoever you are talking to is a committed obstinate unrepentant sinner - and going farther.
It means ostracizing, criticizing, ridiculing, mocking, shunning and boycotting. If an entertainer or a business openly promotes sodomy or other forms of licentiousness, or if they promote and sponsor abortion, or if they oppose expressions of Christianity and forbid employees and advertisements to use words like "Christmas" then they should be targeted for public exposure and boycott. The organized and highly publicized boycott is a very powerful economic and political tool; it should be used.
Target stores, Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream, Abercrombie and Fitch are examples of the brick-and-mortar and/or catalog sales type of businesses we're talking about. If they can't allow Christian bell ringers around their premises, and if they cater to open homosexuals, and if their catalogs are x-rated, then why in the hell should they not be boycotted and ostracized in a predominantly Christian society?
Are we a decent Christian people, or not?
If your newspaper and your news magazine are Leftist and amoral, and they almost certainly are, then cancel your subscriptions and let them know why. Block the mainstream news channels and PBS from your television.
If we ever get a good Constitutionalist government again, it should instruct the U.S. Attorney General to activate federal attorneys in all states to prosecute criminal and civil actions, as applicable, against individuals, organizations, attorneys and judges who in any way act to restrict or violate any American citizen Constitutional rights.
That means going after the ACLU12 and any police, police force, attorneys, judges, courts and officers of courts, and even whole lower levels of government as necessary.
We have elsewhere herein recommended federal attorneys coming to the aid of citizens having their Constitutional rights violated by legal process, so that ordinary citizens do not have to spend money just to maintain their own Constitutional rights. Here we go farther, recommending strong punitive actions against the people and organizations who legally pursue power at the expense of the free citizenry.
The whole purpose of the American Constitution is to protect the American citizen from the American government.
It begins with you.
Where do you stand, and what kind of citizen are you?

You are not just a thinking Catholic, but rather a Wise and Knowledgeable Thinking Catholic! Your thoughts bring these thoughts of mine to mind: The American Revolution II…a radical return to the U.S. Constitution based on Judeo-Christian ethos.
God bless you, Sir!

Thank you Madam.
May the fire be kindled, the embers grow, and the final raging flame purify us and make us more Christian, as the fires of abolition did once before.

You are absolutely right-on! Perhaps one addition to your comments is necessary to hot-wrap-up your strategy. We must go back through at least the past 67 years; only to begin to "toss or re-write" every County, State and Federal Law not in compliance with the Contstitution of the United States. I concur with your frontal assault; take no prisoners.

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.

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
