The immediate image reflected in the headline is that of the Biblical Resurrection of Jesus. That’s not what I meant. I am talking about the resurrection of King George of England. You know the one. He was King of England during the Revolutionary war here in the United States.
How could King George be resurrected? Read the Declaration of Independence and the Ten Amendments. You'll see what I mean. These are some of the usurpations listed in these unique documents.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
Many of the Governors refused the bailout money. Can that be a States Rights issue? Did the interpretation of the commerce clause override all states rights and the tenth amendment?
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
How about midnight sessions and creating 1200 page documents that citizens and some congressmen don't have access to? Weren't all new bills supposed to be online for everyone to see and comment on? Is a bill really legal if no one has read it?
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
This must be the 28 czars he's created along with bailouts and printing of money out of thin air that will eat out our substance (money, savings and freedoms)
For imposing taxes on us without our consent. This one is self evident! The greatest tax increases in our history!
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Government.
He has taken over private companies where no such right exists. He has seized property from rightful owners and given it to others (car dealers, shareholders of GM bonds and stocks)
Some of the States are even following his examples. New York State is trying to pass a law to tax certain people on past taxes. This is an "ex post facto law." It effects an act that occurred before it was passed.
This administration does not believe in the founding documents or philosophy of the brilliant patriots who wrote them. They must have read the "Declaration" and said "those complaints against the crown weren't so bad." They probably thought King George was a victim!
The First Amendment says in part "you can't abridge the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievance." Homeland Security called Tea Party protestors terrorists. Why are they called terrorists just because they don't like the government giving away their tax money.
The list could go one, but one might ask "why isn't the loyal opposition protesting?" Do the Republicans agree with these usurpations? Are some Congressmen being bought out? Are they being intimidated? Perhaps they all have checkered pasts and don't want them exposed. Congress must be like cocaine. Absolutely addicting! Why else would they all sell their souls just to remain in office?
Only God knows, but he isn't allowed as a witness. He's been banned from the public arena!
