“ fear for my countrymen, if they cannot or will not restrain the growing power of this Federal Government!”
There is a fallacy, which was advanced by the radical Yankees during the first half of the 19th Century, a fallacy that helped forge the mindset that lead and motivated Abraham Lincoln, aided by his fellow socialists, to send armies into the newly seceded Southern States. A mindset, which even in the twenty first century has lifted President Lincoln to a status like unto a divine being or a god! This same mindset, which became prevalent, and remains today, is an official policy of the Federal Government, and it is called Perpetual Union.
Samuel Adams once states, "If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." Thomas Jefferson once states, “When all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another, and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated."
Again Thomas Jefferson states, “And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever.” At what point will Faith, Honor and duty prevail, at what point will ‘we the people’ take a firm stand in behalf of their own liberties?
Shall the people suddenly become embolden, only when they are quite literally in chains, or perhaps imprisoned in a gulag type nation? Just maybe ‘we the people’ are so hesitant to stand up for their individual God given rights, because of being consistently on their knees before the Federal Government, demanding more handouts and freebees, rather then providing for themselves. Or just maybe they have already chosen between, comfort and ease on one hand, and liberty on the other.
It appear that we have arrived at the vary generation, which has carries out the words of Samuel Adams to the letter, where he stated, “…Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." I fear a generation will is upon us wherein ‘we the people’ shall awaken to a human disaster of colossal proportions, when the cost of regain their lost liberty, will, be measured in blood.
The continued expansion of Federal Power will not wane, nor be reversed, unless the situation is altered by ‘we the people’ in one of two ways. Conditions will take place through the normal political process, or else a continued hesitation by the people, to take corrective action will, in due course of time, leads to a violent upheaval.
The Federal Government may rightfully exercise only those powers enumerated in the U.S. Constitution, however the Perpetual Union policy provides, in the Yankee mindset, a right to exercise unlimited political power. This includes the imagined right to interpret, expand and even ignore the words drafted into the U.S. Constitution! When in truth, only those powers granted to the Federal Government, are theirs to exercise, all others are a usurpation of power never granted, and a violation of an oath taken before God, as well as we the people.
As the Tenth Amendment states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Therefore it is not for those elected, appointed or employed members of the United States Government, to determine the extend of their own power. In like manner, the Supreme Court has never been delegated the power to add to, subtract from or ignore the words written in the U.S. Constitution, determine the extent of Federal power, nor to overturn State authority.
Enumerated powers rest solely within those words actually drafted into the Constitution itself! There are those who, for whatever reason, are not only willing to tolerate the excesses of the Federal Government, but are desirous, that the Federals vastly expand their exercise of power. After all, the Constitution was written over two and a quarter centuries ago, and holds no meaning today, it’s only a guideline. While at the same time, those people who cherish their individual God given unalienable rights, remain for the most part, silent.
At the same time a growing government intrusion into our daily lives, takes place on an ever-increasing frequency! Over the course of the past 149 years since the surrender of our Confederate Armies, the principles as drafted into the Confederate States Constitution, has increasingly been proven to be sound. Not withstanding the predominantly Christian dominance, present in Southern Society at the time. However, somehow over the passing years, the moral and ethical standards as laid down in the Holy Scriptures, was found to be offensive to an ever increasing permissive society.
Consider for a moment what the founding fathers of the United States, or of the Confederate States would think, if they could somehow return and witness the results of Abraham Lincoln’s ‘Union’ victory. A victory achieve through an aggressive and unconstitutional invasion of our sovereign States. Those States, having freely exercised their God given right to separate themselves, and form a new nation. A Union victory based upon a barbarism that in our time would bring international charges of crimes against humanity and war crimes.
We live in a society which can no longer claim the righteous high ground, if ever they could, that lead to the conquest and subjugation, of the member States and territories of the Confederacy. Even the tired, warn out claim that slavery in the old South, gave them the right to intervene with military force. A claim, which is tired and warn out, because is based upon a falsehood, that the Southern States somehow perpetuated slavery. When the Negro had been transported from Africa, and sold into slavery, by and for the profit of Yankee bankers and merchants.
In our time individual rights are sacrificed upon the alter of political correctness, and a one sided tolerance, while racial quotas remain, howbeit the term ‘racial quotas’ is out dated, yet the policy is still enforced. What ever happened to faith, honor, integrity, self-reliance and duty? Must the areas of social decay be enumerated; I think not, they are self evident, and plain for all to see? All the great empires throughout history have traversed this same highway, and every one of them has fallen by the way. And yet this present day Yankee Empire seems to believe, it will evade the inevitable!
Our honorable President Jefferson Davis is quoted as saying, before the Mississippi Legislature, 16 years after the war, that "The contest is not over, the strife is not ended. It has only entered upon a new and enlarged arena." Given today’s political and social conditions, does anyone really believe the contest is over? Perhaps the critics might say, the issue was settled long ago, the South lost, the Union won, so get used to it. If the truth were to be accepted as truth, the critics are living in a dream world of their own making.
The wholesale slaughter of a people is rarely forgotten by their descendents, which is exemplified by the land of Israel, which was overran by the Roman’s. As history has turned out, the contest was not over! In 1948 Israel after two millenniums, the Jewish Nation once more regained its independence! In 1967 the city of Jerusalem in Israel, then divided, was reunited, becoming once more the Capital of Israel, though scattered around the world, the Jewish People had not forgotten. Yet there are those so naive as to think, that after only 149 years, its time to move on, and I ask, move on to what?
President Jefferson Davis has stated, “Governments rest on the consent of the governed, and that it is the right of the people to alter or abolish them whenever they become destructive of the ends for which they were established.” Has ‘the governed’ given its consent to a Federal Government rushing headlong into socialism, and consenting by their complacency? A safeguard once existed, wherein each State was sovereign, and was a member of the Union of States, on a voluntary basis.
This meant each State held within itself, by the consent of their own citizens, the unalienable right to separate themselves from the Union, as well as to govern over all domestic affairs within their own borders. Again Jefferson Davis states, “The last bulwark of State sovereignty and Constitutional rights in North America, the Confederate States, ceased to exist when Lee surrendered at Appomattox.
From that day forward, the Republic of Jefferson, Madison, Mason and Franklin was to be no more. Henceforth, the federal government that was created by sovereign States to be their agent would become their master. All that remained was for the new order of government to dismantle the Republics remnants.” Jefferson Davis also stated, "The contest is not over, the strife is not ended. It has only entered upon a new and enlarged arena."
And you can be sure the cause for which our Confederate forefather fought, suffered, bled and died, shall be revisited. It will be revisited either on the streets, in the political arena, or else on the field of battle, but it will be revisited. On that day Faith, honor and duty, will be regain, but unfortunately, only after a heavy price has been paid. This author can only pray; that ‘we the people’ will be emboldened soon enough, so as to avoid the horror will surely come.
God save the Confederacy
“Constitutional government in America ended April 9, 1865. It ended four years earlier in the United States with Abraham Lincoln’s ascension to the presidency. Within a year of his inauguration, he effectively eliminated Constitutional rights. He suspended the writ of habeas corpus and imprisoned and deported an Ohio Congressman without warrant or due process. He censored telegraphic communications, stopped circulation of newspapers that criticized his autocratic rule and imprisoned many of their editors. He deprived states of representative government, and unilaterally waged war without the consent of Congress by blockading Southern ports and calling for 75,000 volunteers to invade the sovereign States of the South.” --- Jefferson Davis
