The Time To Wake Up Has Passed America  E-mail

 My Fellow American Patriots,
On July 17th 2009 Senator Mel Martinez of Florida posted on his website an official statement1 for his confirmation of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to be Associate Justice on the United States Supreme Court.  I quote a small section of the senator's official statement to make a point that our elected officials are completely misguided. Senator Mel Martinez's quote is as follows, "Judge Sotomayor is knowledgeable of the law, would be a fair and impartial judge, and seems to have a good understanding of the limited role the judiciary plays in our democracy".
Senator Mel Martinez's statement proves quite quickly his ignorance of our nation's founding documents and the dream our Founding Fathers had envisioned for our country. Great purveyors of history as they were, the founders of our nation recognized the evils of democracy; Thomas Jefferson once said "A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine." 2 Our founders sought and created a Constitutional Republic and then charged every generation afterwards with the duty to protect that Republic. At the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on September 18, 1787, a Mrs. Powel anxiously awaited the results, and as Benjamin Franklin emerged from the long task now finished, she asked him directly: "Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" "A republic if you can keep it" responded Franklin3. Also take note that the Constitutional oath of office of which each president must take states the following; "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;...." 4. Furthermore, there is absolutely no use of the word democracy anywhere in the Declaration of Independence5 or the United States Constitution6.
Judge Sonia Sotomayor's continuance of modern legal precedent will only lead to further Constitutional disregard, disobedience, and disdain. The insistence by almost every elected official and members of the mainstream press that our form of government is a democracy is a complete fallacy and quite simply treasonous. Continuing to allow our politicians and their media machine to do this will only serve to move us further down the path of Socialism and onto Oligarchy7
Our elected officials have truly taken our country down the wrong path; this did not start with the Bush or Obama administrations, this path started long ago but truly took flight after World War II with the change in the nation's foreign policy to one of foreign interventionism. Our elected officials no longer seek office to defend our great nation; they only seek office for their own personal gain and for the gain of the special interests that had financed their election campaigns. Our Federal government oversteps every bounds mandated by the Constitution on daily basis and our States turn a blind eye, failing to stop them. Our government has truly strayed from its foundation and has become what many around the globe would consider a rogue government, hell-bent on expanding its global empire. Our government no longer holds true the belief in individual sovereignty; our authoritarian government now seeks to insert itself into every aspect of our lives whether it be our freedom of speech, freedom from illegal search and seizure, food consumption, drug usage,  health care, education, sexual preference, marital status or religion.  Our government has chained us down with unconstitutional and illegal taxation; it has enslaved us as a nation of debt created by the whims of a secretive and unconstitutional central bank. Our elected officials have allowed a President to take office whom has not produced sufficient proof as to his eligibility as a natural born citizen to hold the office of the Presidency8. The President must have spent millions of dollars to cover-up this fact, to prevent his birth certificate from being produced; and what was his first agenda item as President on the first day of his presidency? President Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13489 9 preventing his Presidential documentation from disclosure unless he releases it upon his own discretion. On top of all these atrocious acts of treason our politicians in Washington are now attempting to further enslave us to the shackles of socialized medicine.
We The People created this Republic to protect and defend our self evident natural rights using the rule of law.  Our government no longer protects these natural rights; our government tramples them underfoot, ignores our founding documents and despises our Constitution. Our government no longer listens to the people which have created it.  Our government has truly become what it has fought so long and hard to defeat. What are free people to do when their government has gone rogue and turned into a socialist tyrannical monster that now seeks to oppress them at ever turn? At what point do we say enough is enough?
Many outlets of the national news media machine reported on Wednesday July 22, 2009 that Senator Charles Grassley stated that a Democrat congressman last week told him after a conversation with the president that the president had trouble in the House of Representatives, and that the Healthcare bill H.R.3200 was not going to pass if there weren't some changes made ... and the president's response was, "You're going to destroy my presidency."10, Mr. President you have done that yourself.
President Barack H. Obama you are breaking our hearts; you are taking us down a path which our nation can not follow. Your administration's policies seek to destroy that which is ours, what we as citizens have created and have a civil duty to protect and defend from both foreign and domestic attack. You are sowing the seeds of Secession, you are creating a Revolution. Why do you seek to destroy our great nation?
The time to wake up has passed America; you must open your eyes and see that you are being lied to.

From the annals of history, I leave you with one quote.
"... it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
---  Hermann Goering, Hitler's Successor, Commander of the German Air Force 11
