The United States is no longer a constitutional republic.
It is a nation in the final transition to a one-party totalitarian state, modeled after the People’s Republic of China with whom those controlling the U.S. government are colluding.
Patriotic Americans must now recognize that the federal government, as an institution, is hopelessly corrupt, that, even though we have elections, we do not have Congressional representation, and that the country is governed by a two-tiered justice system, not determined by the rule of law, but by one’s power, wealth and political beliefs.
The erosion of the Constitution and the theft of our Constitutional rights have been happening incrementally and quietly over a long period of time.
Under Barack Obama and with the tacit approval of the Republican Party, those efforts accelerated, when he delivered on his promise to fundamentally transform the United States, stealthily, into a one-party totalitarian state.
The election of Donald Trump temporarily delayed the destruction of our constitutional republic and publicly exposed the bipartisan establishment’s intent to do so.
According to Angelo Codevilla, the United States already has a bona fide ruling class that transcends government, a political aristocracy that sees itself as distinct from the rest of society and as the only element that may act on its behalf. The ruling class considers those who resist it as having no moral or intellectual right, and, now, any civil right to do so.
Republican leaders neither contest that view nor vilify their Democrat counterparts because they do not want to challenge the ruling class, they want to be part of it. The GOP leadership has gradually solidified its choice to no longer represent what had been its constituency, but to adopt the identity of junior partners in the ruling class. By repeatedly passing bills that contradict the views of its voters, the Republican Party has made political orphans of millions of Americans.
No matter how idealistic the foundations of the United States are or how honorable its previous history, the accumulation of excessive power in the federal government has transformed it into a dysfunctional super-state dedicated to maintaining its own power, operating completely outside of Constitutional constraints and accountability to the American people.
As noted by Jim Garrison, when a government is ruled by men unconstrained by law, there are few things that power cannot do. It can make political allies rich or political enemies paupers. It can waste billions of dollars without accountability and destroy an economy without responsibility. It can make incompetent men high officials or make extraordinary men corpses.
The globalists who control the U.S. government, whether from the inside or the outside, are philosophically and financially allied with and seeking the same outcome as the Chinese Communist Party, state capitalism and totalitarianism.
They see the United States, not as a nation, but as land and people to exploit to increase their own personal power and profit.
Without election integrity, the only means available to restore our constitutional republic is a bottom-up political insurgency.
Patriotic Americans must, together, unequivocally state that Joe Biden is a usurper, who attained power in a fraudulent election.
Any orders or policies emanating from his Executive Branch are, therefore, illegitimate.
A political insurgency takes root as a network of locally governed areas, where the federal government is unable or unwilling to effectively govern or whose mandates are rejected by the local population.
In those cases, local governance is considered more legitimate because federal policies diverge significantly from constitutionality or local values and cultural norms.
A political insurgency grows as it replaces the federal government’s responsibilities to provide proper security, public services, quality of life, education and justice.
Primary among those is protection against both criminal elements and illegal federal government intrusion furnished by local law enforcement and a fully-armed, trained and deputized citizenry.
Once autonomous local security is established, a political insurgency would pursue the objectives of reform and nullification of unconstitutional federal government mandates.
The reform component of political insurgency seeks to compel the federal government to alter or discontinue its destructive policies through local civil disobedience and non-compliance.
Nullification involves a broader roll back of federal governmental authority in a geographically defined area creating greater regional autonomy.
In 1858, just three years before the start of the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln said:
“I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free…that a house divided against itself cannot stand…I do not expect the Union to be dissolved… I do not expect the house to fall… but I do expect it will cease to be divided… it will become all one thing or all the other.”
We are now at a similar crossroad in our history.
The United States will become all one thing or all the other, either a constitutional republic or a one-party totalitarian state.
