Why is the Supreme Court failing to uphold the Constitution?
The lack of proper recognition of the average citizen’s
grievances causes me to raise questions that
have led me to the Declaration of Independence.
It states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal, that they are endowed
by their Creator with certain unalienable
rights, that among these are life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights,
governments are instituted among men, deriving their
just powers from the consent of the governed.”
At this point, dear Justices, I see nothing in place
today within our government which remotely
resembles the above passage. In fact, in my opinion,
had things been as they should have been,
perhaps Mr. Stack would still be with us today.
Faced with an impossible situation where many of
us see we are in danger of being deprived of
and denied our unalienable rights and can no longer
easily secure our rights of life, liberty
and the pursuit of happiness, we again turn to the
Declaration of Independence, which then states,
“That whenever any form of government becomes
destructive to these ends, it is the right of the
people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new
government, laying its foundation on such
principles and organizing its powers in such form,
as to them shall seem most likely to effect
their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed,
will dictate that governments long established
should not be changed for light and transient causes;
and accordingly all experience hath shown
that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while
evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by
abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations,
pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design
to reduce them under absolute despotism,
it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such
government, and to provide new guards for their
So here we are, dear Justices. I fear many of us
loyal citizens are beginning to reach the point described
We have been patient; we have been persistent.
In return, we have been denied proper access to redress
our concerns. We have been denied our
First Amendment rights as freedom of the press
has been compromised. Government domination
over the television networks has also marginalized
our free access to news and information, and we
are routinely subjected to propagandized influence
biased by both government and foreign interests.
As citizens, we have been subjected to a manner
of character assassination, personally delivered
by high-ranking members of Congress. For example,
Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, presented
in the form of public criticism, ridiculing and vilification,
right out of the Saul Alinsky book “Rules for Radicals.”
Homeland Security has issued the following:
WASHINGTON – A newly unclassified Department of
Homeland Security report warns against the possibility
of violence by unnamed “right-wing extremists”
concerned about illegal immigration, increasing
federal power, restrictions on firearms, abortion and the
loss of U.S. sovereignty and singles out returning
war veterans as particular threats.
I take exception to this condemnation from people
who purportedly work for the citizens of this great nation.
Is this indeed the proof that the inmates at Homeland
Security are running the asylum? Wouldn’t any reasonable
person be concerned about the issues raised in this notice?
Is this to be taken as a declaration of war upon
any citizen who dissents against the current government
policies? Is this Constitutional? Oh, excuse me, dear
justices…I must have missed something on this, too.
Isn’t this another attack on everyday concerned citizens?
Isn’t this simply a continuation of an earlier effort to
vilify anyone seeking to restore the Constitution and the
rule of law? Is this part of a preconditioning strategy
to brainwash citizens to accept an ever-increasing
threat of martial law by a government bent on replacing our
free society with socialism?
How much are we citizens expected to endure at the
hands of this oppressive government? How many of
these abuses to our Constitution are considered reasonable?
It does not seem to get better. Our Tea Party citizens
have been described as Nazis; our returning veterans
have been classed as possible terrorists; those who
staunchly support the Second Amendment have also been
branded and vilified as right-wing fringe elements.
Those demanding the eligibility issue be resolved are ridiculed.
There are many more examples of legitimately concerned
citizens being denied rightful recognition of their
Concurrently, along with other quietly-executed
administrative activities, clandestine executive orders
in the dead of night dramatically affect the sovereignty
and security of this nation. International agencies
are provided excessive access to U.S. interests
and immunity from U.S. authority. This has produced
a dire set of circumstances, presenting the specter
of international police elements potentially exercising
controlling authority over American citizens.
The creation of special administrative organizations
has provided sweeping new collective authority to
the office of the president, a position currently
occupied by an individual with unknown credentials
and possibly conflicting loyalties. This poses a
clear and present danger to the vested interests of this country.
Under the guise of forming protective units
against terrorism, Homeland Security has extended its authority
to encompass the coordination of local and state police
authority. Many see that a danger exists for
potentially planned government incursions to violate
the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878.
Add to all of the above, we have so many folks out
of work, the economy is rapidly failing, the stability
of our currency is under attack and the daily revelation
of gross government corruption make for a very
unstable view of our prospects.
Under these potentially explosive conditions, it is hard
to imagine just how much more tolerant our loyal
American citizens will remain.
Meanwhile, dear Justices, I still have no answers for
my family, but in researching all of these concerns,
it appears that things are far worse than I had ever anticipated:
- In summary, we have three branches of government
- that all swear oaths to faithfully execute their
- responsibilities, but don’t.
- We have three branches of government that take an
- oath and swear to protect the Constitution,
- but don’t.
- We have a case where we the people are ignored and
- denied due process by a judicial system that also
- fails to honor its oath of office and to deliver equal
- justice under the law.
Excuse me, dear Justices, please tell me…am I out of line?
Granted, I know little about the legal status of the above
issues, but even as a simple unsophisticated citizen,
I find the very existence of these conflicts to be very
disturbing. Tell me, your honors, how do you sleep at night?
To attempt to tie all of this together, it appears to me that
collectively, as a group of like-minded citizens,
we create a government that follows the tenets of the
Constitution and the founding documents. As part
of this process, we empower our representatives to
provide a system of administration by which to guide our
We voluntarily agree to obey the reasonable rules and laws
created for us by our servants in the government.
However, if those empowered to make the laws and
maintain the system of justice do not abide by the very
same laws, then by what manner of hypocrisy can
those to be governed be expected to continue to agree to
obey laws of such a corrupt system? What incentive
is there to continue to live by laws that pertain only to
those who are governed but not to those empowered by
Given today’s circumstances, it would seem very clear
to me that once the question of responsibility to
insure compliance to the Constitution was answered,
then we could begin ferreting out the violations
and the violators and begin to apply the principles of the
rule of law.
This would seem to offer a path by which to restore
the values and ideas of the original Constitution,
values and concepts that would encourage a stable and
vibrant nation with an equally enthusiastic financial
and economic outlook, a nation capable of regaining
its former glory to again take its rightful position as
America, the home of the free, the home of the brave;
the leader of the free world.
As I see it, the burden of proof is on Obama to prove his
eligibility, not the responsibility of the people to
prove he is not eligible. Why have the courts ignored this
critical part of the legislative process? This is a
matter of law, not politics.
As I see it, the Supreme Court is responsible for resolving
this crisis. Every citizen is involved; therefore,
the issue of standing has been made.
So, dear Justices, the question begging to be answered
is, simply, “When do the members of the Supreme
Court do the job for which they are being paid?” If not the
Supreme Court, who is in charge of protecting
the sanctity of the Constitution?
