An Open Letter To Government

I know that should I ever send this I will most likely have a sudden accident, or simply be arrested and never heard from again. But I defy anyone to refute what I say…

To Whom It May Concern:

I hope you don’t mind, but I would like to take a few moments to share some thoughts with you regarding you and how you have betrayed your oaths of office and let down the people you represent.

I wonder how many of you are aware that had you been alive in, say 1780, you would have actually had to work for a living instead of becoming career politicians whose only job requirement is the ability to lie and cheat. You see, had you been living back in 1780 there would have been no federal government for you to run for office for.

I wonder then, what was running through the Founders minds that would cause them to create an entity whose only purpose seems to micromanage the lives of the people and destroy their liberty? Why in God’s name would they fight a revolution to gain their independence from one tyrant, only to replace it with 546 tyrants and an army of jack booted thugs to enforce the tyrants will?

Unless of course that was not the intent of the men who wrote our Constitution. If that be the case, then what is the purpose for which they created the system of government that you now occupy a seat in, and what were the limits they placed upon its powers?

Either our Founding Fathers established a system of government with almost unlimited powers, or they established one with clearly defined powers. It’s either one or the other; there is no room for middle ground on this. If it is the former then you are doing the job for which the government you occupy a seat in was created for. If not, then you are abusing your power and passing laws which the Constitution prohibits. The obvious question then is; which one is it?

To seek an answer to this question I think it best we search amongst the writings of those who were actually alive at the time the Constitution was being written and ratified; don’t you agree? Therefore, the best place to look is amongst the writings of the so-called Father of the Constitution James Madison.

On January 26, 1788, under the pseudonym Publius, James Madison’s Federalist 45 was published in New York newspapers. In it Madison states, “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined.”

Well then, it would appear that the answer to our little question is that the government created by the Constitution was one of limited powers; making you someone who has abused the trust and authority granted you by your constituents.

Each of you take an oath upon entering your duties to whatever office you hold which states you will support and defend the Constitution. If the Constitution creates a system of government with limited powers, and if those elected by the people to hold seats of power within this government pass laws which are not in accordance, or as the Constitution itself says, in pursuance of, the powers granted government, what does that make you?
Article 6 of the Constitution states that it is the Supreme Law of the Land. There is a word that I can’t seem to remember now that defines those who violate the law…oh, that’s right, the word is criminals. Could it be possible that you are a criminal?

This fact was upheld by following from an 1866 Supreme Court ruling, (Back when the Supreme Court had some regard for the Constitution), “The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times, and under all circumstances. No doctrine, involving more pernicious consequences, was ever invented by the wit of men than that any of its provisions can be suspended during any of the great exigencies of government. Such a doctrine leads directly to anarchy or despotism.”

Isn’t it amazing how upside down things have become in America? I find it absolutely mind boggling how those who have been elected to fill seats within a government and whose actions are governed by the Supreme Law of the Land can violate that law routinely, while those who violate the laws passed which overstep the limits placed upon government are punished with fines, jail time, and even death.

There is a word for people like you as well…oh, that’s right, they are called tyrants.

Going back to Federalist 45 for a moment, Madison states, “The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State.” By that sentence alone every law you have passed in your illustrious careers; from the criminalization of marijuana to the regulations which dictate how much water a toilet can use when flushed, are violations of the boundaries which separated the power given you, and that reserved to the States.

I imagine it is fortunate for you that the average voter is such an ignorant dolt; otherwise you might find yourself facing the wrath of the people you represent for your violations of the Constitution and the assaults upon their liberty you are guilty of.

The recent election of Donald Trump for president should be a warning sign to you that some of the people in this country are waking up to your betrayal of their trust; and this goes for both sides of the political aisle as had not the Clinton camp defrauded Bernie Sanders of the Democratic nomination he may very well have been our new president; not Trump.

People in this country want change, and not the kind of change offered by Barack Obama; they want real change. Unfortunately, for the time being they are more interested in how that change will personally benefit them and the limits the Constitution imposes upon government as an entity is of little concern to them. But that could change should you continue to go on being puppets for the moneyed and special interests who funnel the funds into your campaign war chests.

Just be aware that there are those of us out here who are working tirelessly to educate the people; to make them aware that their government is not one of unlimited powers. Hopefully one day the people will come to realize that our Founders did not establish a democracy where a simple majority is all it takes for a law to be passed. Hopefully someday the people will realize that our Founders created a Republic governed by the rule of law; and that those who violate that law should be punished, not re-elected.

Hopefully someday the people will take to heart the words of Patrick Henry, “You are not to inquire how your trade may be increased, nor how you are to become a great and powerful people, but how your liberties can be secured; for liberty ought to be the direct end of your Government.”
Hopefully one day the people will awaken to the simple fact that they are not the criminals when they choose to exercise their rights; that you are the criminals for passing laws that restrict them.

Hopefully…but at the same time I am not holding my breath. You have done an amazing job of altering the curriculum of our schools and limiting the knowledge regarding the true function of the government you hold a seat in.

In the meantime just beware that just as the NSA watches all of us, there are those of us who are watching you; and should their come a real awakening of the people in this country, we will not forgive nor forget your crimes against us.

Until then we can only use the words of Thomas Jefferson to decide for ourselves what type of government we have, “When governments fear the people there is liberty, when the people fear the government there is tyranny.”
