Resolving Our Internal Conflict is the Second Step
Fighting an enemy is a multistep process. Identification of the enemy is first - how else can one know who to target? In a previous post the identification of enemies of the American people was discussed. Once the enemy has been defined one is faced with combating this enemy. In our case we will consider defeating a domestic enemy.
First off we are faced with our own personal conflicts that arise - if the enemy is domestic - embedded in our government - how in the heck do we follow orders, keep oaths, and at the same time fight against the very system to which we've all agreed to remain loyal?
Speaking for myself - maybe I'm getting too sentimental here - I love the United States. Why? Because it is the American system that provided the environment in which I've been able, so far, to determine my own destiny. It isn't perfect, of course, but until very recently I've never met an American that would disagree that this system gives us all a chance to follow our dreams - that our individual spirit was the only factor limiting personal achievement of goals. Not any more!
Consider these quotes from Thomas Jefferson. Remember - he was, among other things, a U.S. President. Is it reasonable to assert that our existing president and his clone predecessor represent a system that would have Thomas Jefferson jailed for making these statements? Our country has taken ill my friends - when quotes from Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence are too radical for TV - it is time to stop and think about what the hell is going on around here!
Todays Amerika is a nation of greed and corruption. Wars of aggression sold to the public via interconnected and interlocking radio, television, print, entertainment and other propaganda purveyors of deceit. Shameless and tireless corporate-owned liars employing their trained silver tongues to sell and justify torture, war crimes, false-flag attacks ,targeted killings , and mercenary armies terrorizing nations that have done nothing to us. Our Federal government owns the Universities via grant money puppet-strings, spits in the face of the public by shamelessly acting contrary to campaign promises, fabricating lies disseminated via a controlled media, suppressing 911 truth, ignoring foreign blackmail-enforced control of elected officials, cheating the public out of their retirements.... the list is so long - but for some reason the Federal government of the United States continues its Draconian lock-down and Bill of Rights book-burning.
Bewildered Americans still in denial mesmerized by Hitlerian big lies cling to their religious-like fantasy that this can't be happening here while they are robbed, searched, snooped-on, victimized by corporate usurers, Tasered, jailed, denied habeas corpus, denied the right to bear arms, cheated by the Federal Reserve, kept stupid by monopolized media consolidated and manipulated beyond their wildest dreams, yoked by corporations with no loyalty to the United States, taxed to exhaustion to finance machine-gun-wielding thug police and mercenary-for-hire wars and TSA jackasses at the airports. Although this doesn't scratch the surface a person has to be either insane or just plain stupid not to realize that this is NOT AMERICA. So how do we deal with a domestic enemy?
This is not nearly as difficult as it sounds. Not to oversimplify - but before you listen to what I have to say you may want to read DOMESTIC CHALLENGES TO THE OATH OF OFFICE:THE MODERN OFFICER‘S RESPONSIBILITY IN REVOLUTION.
From the Abstract:
"Noting that the military oath of office requires defense of the Constitution against enemies —foreign and domestic,“ this paper examines the concept of a —domestic enemy“ and assesses the implication of that domestic threat for the military officer called to the Constitution‘s defense. The author proposes that there are two legitimate challenges to the oath taken by the commissioned officer. The first arises from the proposition that constitutional law is secondary to natural law. Since the officer is morally obligated to support natural law over constitutional law and the two have historically conflicted, a clash with the officer‘s sworn oath is inevitable. The second challenge occurs when known constitutional issues remain unresolved;it may also be brought about simply by accepting the position of those who argue that the —living nature“ of Constitution allows its —re-interpretation“ in light of a changing culture. The resulting constitutional ambiguity has the potential to leave the officer without moorings on which to interpret his responsibilities under the oath."
Perhaps military oath of office, natural law, constitutional law - doing what one knows is right - all can be pulled together rather simply. If one defines the enemy as anyone suggesting or pushing any agenda that requires Americans to surrender inalienable rights spelled out in the Bill of Rights, or anyone with an agenda that is contrary to preservation and protection of the U.S Constitution the next step is resolving internal conflicts. Why? Because until one is settled in their own mind that they are morally justified in their actions, that their actions are GOOD, that their actions have the ultimate aim of SAVING AMERICA their actions won't have the maximum impact. Lack of conviction on the part of leaders will be detected by those still on the fence leading to doubt. So how does one sort all this out so they know they are doing the right thing?
I propose that one can battle a domestic enemy and maintain their oath. How you may ask, if one considers that the U.S. Constitution is subject to interpretation and is a living document? Easy.
First off the Constitution comes along with the Bill of Rights which are inalienable. Also to be taken alongside the Constitution is the Declaration of Independence of the United States which very clearly explicates the reasons citizens must refresh their government. But how to break all this down into a definable problem?
I suggest that regardless of various interpretations of the Constitution and Bill of Rights - one aspect of the system transcends all - that is the system of checks and balances built into the American system of government. Regardless of ones stance on the right to bear arms, abortion, free speech etc... I propose that anyone attempting to subvert the system of checks and balances is an enemy of the American people because they are destroying the very foundation and genius of the American system of government. Agents intent on the destruction of the system of checks and balances act contrary to America and Americans and Liberty. One can be confident that following that voice inside, becoming a whistleblower, refusing illegal orders and bringing down those whose actions contribute to the undermining of the system of checks and balances is a true patriot who can dispose of conflicts preventing them from acting.
The time is now. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Settle your mind and do what is right for America before it is too late.
