ShutDown: Rank and File American Speaks Truth to Power

5% of America approves of Congress. That means 95% of Americans disapprove of Congress. This writer posits that 5% approval essentially amounts to the friends and family members of elected officials, Government employees and Military personnel under orders to support the government. (Funny if not so sad) This writer trusts all agree that 95% disapproval requires that the majority of the rank and file members of both the alleged Republican and alleged Democrat Party disapprove of Congress. Despite this, our Provdaesque Major Media insists on running with the spin that it’s the alleged Republican Party that is in trouble?

I have always thought the actions of men the best interpretters of thier thoughts! John Locke (Natural Law)

Enough. This rank and file American writer sees this Obamacare Government Shutdown for the "Wizard of Oz - Never mind the man behind the curtain" spectacle that it was. This spectacle was intended to divide, conquer, distract and confuse WE THE PEOPLE. This rank and file American writer will Speak Truth to Power at President Barrack Obama and Congress while at the same time informing his fellow rank and file Americans of the true nature of the activities of the "man behind the curtain" that this Wizard of Oz spectacle was intended to distract them from.

Though you would-be aristocrats think little of Rank and File Americans, WE THE PEOPLE are able to see through your deceptions. Congress just may not hear about it because many fear the retaliation and blow back of Speaking Truth to Power. What a shameful lot you Congressfolks are for making individual Americans choose between their unalienable Right to the Pursuit of Happiness and holding you folks accountable.

What planet do you people who constitute America's present Ruling Class live on? Have you never heard of this wonderful communication device called the internet? Do you not know that Major Media no longer has a monopoly on the flow of information to we rank and file Americans? Do you not know the aristocracies of Old World Europe were torn down by the ease of communication caused by the relatively primitive printing press? All over the internet, Rank and File Americans are shouting, "The emperor has no clothes".

Now able to compare notes, We rank and file Americans have came to the conclusion that our elected officials seem to be managing and manipulating us like livestock instead of representing in the fashion the Founders envisioned. You know, that Natural Law, Unalienable Rights, Constitution, Bill of Rights, Rule of Law thingy that you folks find so lame and constraining.

There is a rank and file American saying"

"Fool me one, shame on you! Fool me twice, shame on me!"


Let us begin with Congressional Insider Trading!

Let it be known that we rank and file Americans who comprise WE THE PEOPLE have not forgot about Congressional Insider Trading. Congress got caught and exposed by 60 minutes! (Hats off to 60 Minutes!)Congress passed some lame, half-hearted legislation making it illegal for Congressfolks to engage in Insider Trading (which was/is already illegal for the rest of rank and file America) President Barrack Obama signed it into law. And then Congress gutted and repealed that reform while America wasn't paying attention! And President Barrack Obama signed that to. What is your malfunction?

Congressional Insider Trading allows Congressfolks to steal the value that only labor creates, from the masses. In essence the masses earn it, and through the trick and artifice of fiat money, the stock market and Congressional Insider Trading, the fruits of the labor of the masses end up in the pockets of Congress as unearned wealth. (For those of you who want to better understand how the smoke and mirrors of our ruling class works, in a few dqs this writer will publish a short article explaining the nature of our money

But for now, the reader only needs to know that because of financial instruments like futures, options, stocks, bonds and derivative, it does not matter which way the stock markets (for instance) move, it only matters that a person knows the direction. Congress, which has control of the laws, rules and people that regulate the stock market, can cause the market to move in a specific direction at a relatively specific time and make investments with that knowledge through Congressional Insider Trading.

In the symmetry of the transaction, the people that have the knowledge (Congressfolks and their friends) gain unearned money while the people that don't have the knowledge (Rank and File Americans), lose the money that Congressfolks and their friends gain. Sound fair to you?

But the point is: Congress is a group of people, who have made it legal to steal from WE THE PEOPLE on a massive scale; Why should Rank and File Americans (aka WE THE PEOPLE) believe anything else Congress has done was with rank and file America's best interests in mind? This is Speaking Truth to Power.

One step further, why shouldn't any rank and file American believe that the alleged spontaneous partial government shutdown wasn't really just Congress Folks and their friends making money through Congressional Insider Trading? Why shouldn't any rank and file American believe that Shutdown was an orchestrated event? An orchestrated event to cause Stock Market Movement that you Congressional Insider Traders could use to milk the WE THE PEOPLE cow again? This is more Speaking Truth to Power.

Fool me once, shame on you; Fool me twice, shame on me.


And then we have Immigration Reform and Amnesty. 20+ years ago, rank and file Americans agreed to go along with a “one time only” Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants. It would be one time only, because border security would be strengthened and a fence would be built on the Mexican Border. And yet, here we are with those promises broken, being asked to acquiesce to one more round of Amnesty. Is Congress really so evil that it implicitly calculates that if it waits long enough, the generation it made political promises to will die off? That would be more Speaking Truth to Power.

Immigration Reform – Common Sense and Reform

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.


Now, to explain the real meaning of the Obamacare, Government Shutdown Wizard of Oz Spectacle we must take a few moments to talk about government itself. To avoid the reader losing interest, this writer will keep this discussion about government to the equivalent of 5 paragraphs.

The relationship between individuals in a society and their government is called a “Social Contract”. Social Contracts most usually subscribe to a Governance Doctrine. The philosophy that forms the Foundation of the Government our Founders intended, states that to be legitimate and effective, Governments must be formed with knowledge of the Nature of Man. Governance Doctrines represent the ideal. Governments are the necessarily imperfect attempts of mankind to implement Governance Doctrines in the real physical world.

The Social Contract and Government of America is based on is “Consent of the Governed” pursuant to Natural Law. The Social Contract is embodied in our Declaration of Independence, Jeffersonian Constitution and the Bill of Rights. (Proof that our government was found upon Natural Law Progressives believe the Jeffersonian Constitution is evil and want to replace it with a Progressive Constitution.

Under the Consent of the Governed (Natural Law) Governance Doctrine:

  1. The premise is that Nature of Man in Natural State is that of a “social animal with tendencies to reason and tolerance but who can be selfish;
  2. Government must be devised with the Nature of Man in mind(John Locke). As all people have free will and are not virtuous by Nature (Cato) government must be designed to force transparency and Accountability through Checks and Balances;
  3. Truth is determined by the individual using their own observations and reasoning;
  4. The Individual has the Right of Self-Determination. That is to say, the individual chooses how to live their life, and accepts the rewards and consequences of their decisions;
  5. The Social Contract requires that the Government may not lie to individuals to induce their consent to be governed;
  6. Individuals have certain unalienable rights that no earthly being can infringe or ignore save for punishment of crime in accordance to the Rule of Law after being accorded due process;
  7. People have the right to Political Dissent and Revolution;

Natural Law - How WE THE PEOPLE got to the 4th of July 1776

Under the Progressive Governance Doctrine:

  1. The premise is that the Nature of Man in the Natural State is that of being a “social animal who is altruistic”;
  2. Individuals can trust Government because Individuals are Altruistic by Nature;
  3. Truth is determined by Educated elites selected from among the wealthy, leisure class because only they have the time and resources to study governance;
  4. The Educated Elite determine how best the individual may be of service to the community;
  5. The Social Contract provides the Educated Elite may lie to the masses because the masses don’t know what’s best for them;
  6. All of the rights and interests of the individual are subordinate to the interests of the community as determined by the Educated Elite selected from amongst the wealthy, leisure Class;
  7. Individuals and the People have no right to Political dissent or revolution. If individuals dissent from the Educated Elite it is because the individual does not know what’s good for them or because they have been contaminated with evil beliefs such as individualism, creativity, competition and free markets. Such individuals must be “reeducated” by such means as tutoring, mentoring, conditioning, coercion, penalties and punishment. (Like the former USSR)

Is Progressive just Politically Correct for Divine Right of Kings 2of3

As has been stated previously, our current Social Contract is embodied in the Declaration of Independence, the Jeffersonian Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Yet, Progressivism regards the Jeffersonian Constitution as evil and seeks to replace it with a Progressive Constitution.

This writer invites and encourages Progressive President Barrack Obama and any other Progressive Educated Elites to point out to this rank and file American writer any material errors this writer has made in his summary of Progressivism’s premises and foundational beliefs. President Obama, this is how you persuade people without lying to them. This is Speaking Truth to Power. And that brings us to Obamacare and the Government Shut down.


The Government Shutdown was not about Obamacare. Please hold that thought while this writer indulges in explaining his position on Obamacare.

There is another principle of law that this unconstitutional ruling class prescribes for Rank and File Americans that it does not abide by itself(The establishment of unequal treatment of 2 different classes of people itself being unconstitutional).

When Rank and File Americans make contracts amongst each other using lies and misrepresentations, it is called fraud. Further, said contract is then null and void and therefore unenforceable. It is null and void because there was not a "Meeting of the Minds". Noone can give meaningful consent to something that was misrepresented to them for the purpose of inducing them to consent to something they would not otherwise consent to.

It has been admitted that a large portion of what was represented about Obamacare was a lie. Cost, savings, keep your doctor, death panels, etc. As such, there was no meeting of the minds by WE THE PEOPLE. Under Consent of the Governed, the ruling class does not get to lie to WE THE PEOPLE to induce us to agree to and/or not protest adoption of any legislation. How can the Democratic Process be meaningful if our government lies to WE THE PEOPLE? How can WE THE PEOPLE give meaningful and binding consent if the government does not provide us with truthful observations upon which we can use our reasoning to determine truth?

This Rank and File American asserts that the Proponents of Obamacare have purposely misrepresented Obamacare to fraudulently induce our assent. As such, Obamacare is Null and Void. At the same time, these fraudulent misrepresentations soften the vigor of opposition. This is not the Democratic process the Founders intended. Therefore, we must start from scratch and have an honest debate about how to address the shortcomings of the present American Healthcare system.

Rewind. Start from scratch. And when we do, this Rank and File American will be the first to point out that the problems with the former system were not resolved because our evil ruling class kept taking campaign contributions, bribes and other consideration instead of acting in the best interests of WE THE PEOPLE.

16% of Americans don't have health insurance. Half of those don't want it. That leaves 8% that want health insurance but can afford it. Let’s provide them a safety net. That leaves the 92% that are happy with the existing system, save for some Tweaks that need to be done. Tweaks that were not done because our evil ruling class decided that accepting campaign contributions, bribes and other consideration was more important than the best interests of Rank and File Americans. Stop feathering your own darn nests and implement the necessary Tweaks already.

However, we are where we are at now: It has been proven that, consistent with the Progressive Social Contract, President Barrack Obama and Proponents of Obamacare lied to get Obamacare passed. President Barrack Obama and Progressives lied because they believed they knew better and rank and file Americans didn’t know what’s good for them. This is not the type of Democratic Process nor form of government that rank and file Americans want to be governed under.

Fool me once, shame on you; Fool me twice, shame on me.


Back to that thought this writer asked you to hold. Obamacare was not what Progressives intended to hide in plain sight with the Government Shutdown. As this writer has pointed out, he has seen through and past the Government Shutdown Wizard of Oz Spectacle the Ruling Class and Major Media painted. The Progressives want to crash the dollar and our economy so they can replace the Jeffersonian Constitution with a Progressive Constitution in the aftermath. [Note that it is prescribed in Progressive Saul Alisnsky's Rules for Radicals to keep the citizenry constantly agitated and stressed and to put out so much information the public can't tell truth from lie. Also learn about Progressive Edward Bernays, Assassin of Democracy,,,,, Bernays exhalts government to engage in emotion/base-instinct-based Propaganda to induce the consent of the governed]

And it must be noted: What part of "All People Created Equal" don't you ruling class elites get? What part of the Rule of Law don't you folks get? It is required that there is one set of rules that apply to every American. There is no provision for the an aristocracy in Natural Law, Consent of the Governed, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Rule of Law nor the Bill of Rights. Yet, you Congressfolks permit yourselves to engage in Insider Trading that is (and equitably should be) illegal for rank and file Americans; Rank and File Americans cannot enforce contracts induced by their fraudulent representations, yet you ruling class folks hold your selves to no such standards in Insider Trading, Immigration Reform and Obamacare, as the most recent examples; and then you exempt yourselves from Obamacare and Social Security. One set of law for one class of people. Period. End of Discussion.

Regardless of how our Provdaesque Major Media reported it, this Government Shutdown was a battle between persons fighting to retain the Social Contract the Founder’s of this Country crafted and those persons who would replace it with the Progressive Social Contract.

This all seems to be a matter of the Old World Plutocrats who lost the power and control they had under the Governance Doctrine of the Divine Right of King trying to regain their former power and control. Tell me, American Ruling Class, Is this writer wrong? (Hey Major Media, this is what Free Press, Free Speech, Truth and Liberty look like.)


This rank and file writer implores his fellow rank and file Americans to review the summaries of the Founder’s Social Contract and that of the Progressives, provided to you earlier in this article. Pursuant to Natural Law, this writer asks his fellow rank and file citizens to use their own observations and reasoning to determine truth for yourself.

Please exercise critical thinking. Determine Truth for yourself using your own observations and reasoning.

This writer would respectfully ask his fellow rank and file Americans to choose wisely.

Do you want Self-Determination and the Right to Establish Truth for yourself pursuant to Natural Law, Consent of the Governed and the Jeffersonian Constitution or do you want some Educated Elite selected from amongst the wealthy, leisure class to tell you what to think and what you must do in the best interest of the community as solely determined by the Educated Elite.

Consider that President Obama’s Educated Elite determined that Congressional Insider Trading was in the best interest of the community? Is that consistent with the foundational premise of Progressivism that the human individual is altruistic by nature?

Fool me once, shame on you; Fool me twice, shame on me.

This writer would respectfully ask his fellow rank and file Americans to choose wisely.

The choice seems clear to this rank and file American writer...

President Obama said in his Speech marking the end of the Government Shutdown:

“And now that the government has reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do, and that's grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul.”

Though this writer share’s President Barrack Obama’s view of lobbyists and professional activist profiteers, President Obama’s remarks are inconsistent with Consent of the Governed and Natural Law. Natural Law requires the individual to use their own observations and reasoning to determine truth. Censorship and/or self-censorship at the direction of our leaders damage the Democratic Process.

And then there is that American spirit of liberty as espoused by Voltaire:

“I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.”

Just remember that if you were a good and obedient little progressive, you would be in trouble with your government for reading what this blogger has written. But since you have been bad already, here are 4 more quick Speaking Truth to Power quips:

Gun Control is not about Guns, It is about Control

Agenda 21 is not about the Environment, it is about Control;

Obamacare is not about Healthcare, it is about Control.

Progressivism is not about protecting labor from exploitation, it’s about Control.

My fellow rank and file Americans, this writer humbly urges that once you have established truth for yourself and self determined your political position, aggressively support those elected officials and government bureaucrats that share and promote your position.

[This writer would ask his fellow bloggers and President Barrack Obama’s nemesis Talking Heads to start writing, talking and persuading within the context of Natural Law and Consent of the Governed and to discuss the foundation of Progressivism as a means to educate and inform rank and file Americans. Progressive Education has been very effective in removing Natural Law and Consent of the Governed from the Curriculum of future generations of Americans. - They have been using education to create a group of sheople necessary for the usurpation of America by Progressivism to succeed.]

This writer chooses the Social Contract our Founder’s envisioned and designed.

This rank and file writer further believes that there are not presently 2 major political parties in America. Instead, there is one ruling class pretending to be 2 major political parties. They use various issues to divide, conquer, distract and confuse WE THE PEOPLE so we do unite against them. Meanwhile, they rob us blind.

This writer cautions that those who would ride with this writer, will ride under the flag of Natural Law - All People Created Equal; as opposed to the Progressive flag which is literally rooted in Scientific Racism and Eugenics.

This writer will expound farther on the matters discussed here in future articles with the current working titles:

Don Mashak’s Unifying Theory of American Politics and Government

Artificial and Parasitic Institutions of Modern America.

For now, my fellow rank and file Americans, please determine truth for yourself using your own observations and reasoning, and then: Unite, Plan, Execute.

Those were my thoughts.

In Closing:

Thank you, my fellow citizens, for taking your valuable time to read and reflect upon what is written here.

If what is written here rings true to you, perhaps you should contact your local elected officials and let them know. If you are afraid of repercussions, snail mail it anonymously and ask them to respond in the local paper or their own monthly/quarterly internet newsletter. Even if this article refers to something outside you geographic area, it still likely applies to your location. Remember all those taxpayer training junkets we taxpayers send the bureaucrats on? They all learn the same “livestock management” techniques to use on WE THE PEOPLE.

And that leaves WE THE PEOPLE with this conundrum: While our #Government works full time with compensation and funded with our money for the cause of #Tyranny; WE THE PEOPLE are forced to work part time without compensation for the cause of #liberty with what is left over of our time, money and energy.

Finally, this article is written with the same intentions as Thomas Paine I seek no leadership role. I seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own “Common Sense”

Keep Fighting the Good Fight!
