CONSTITUTION DAY

If you believe that our federal government is devoted to protecting our constitution and our civil rights, then you must be either brain-dead or a willing participant in the destruction of America.
Four days ago, Sept. 17, was the anniversary of our nation's Constitution, so I want to take this opportunity to remind or inform you of some facts. Our rights do not come from our government. They derive from God. They are inalienable; that means they cannot be taken away.
When they were first inaugurated, every one of our elected politicians swore an oath to protect and uphold our constitution. Lots of them didn’t really mean it.
These days we have many elected representatives who mandate laws without the consent of the people. But illegal laws are not constitutional and there are plenty of us out here in Real America, who will not obey illegal laws. And many of us are inspired, instructed, and dutifully motivated by the preamble to our Declaration of Independence. I have paraphrased that document here in plain, modern language for your convenience. I hope this will help.
“There are some things that are just absolutely and fundamentally true. In fact, they are so universally evident and understood that they don’t even need to be argued or defended. One of those absolute truths is that we are all created by God. And because He is the creator and the giver of life, no one, and no government has the right to arbitrarily take the life of another. Nor does anyone have the right to own, control, or hold another person hostage. And, no one has the right to deny any other person the opportunity to pursue his dreams or ambitions. The right to life, the right to be free and the right to pursue happiness are all rights that are granted to men by God, not by any government.
“In order to secure and protect their God-given rights, it is the responsibility of men to organize governments, for themselves, whose ONLY powers are those that are granted to them by the willing consent of the people. And, with those powers, they must act righteously for the good of those they govern.
“Whenever any government becomes so destructive or oppressive that it threatens or diminishes these basic rights of its people, it is the responsibility of the people to change or abolish that government and create a new one that will most effectively secure their safety, freedom, well-being, and happiness.
“Governments that have been well-established and that have served well over long periods of time must be wise. and very careful to remember their fundamental purpose and not substantively deviate from it for frivolous or fleeting causes. History has shown that most men will endure a lot of abuse and persecution and even evil at the hands of their governments as long as they think the abuses are tolerable because, over time, they become accustomed to them. Resistance is hard work and, frankly, it is much easier to just endure government encroachment as much as possible.
“But when a government becomes so abusive and oppressive; when it systematically erodes the freedoms of the very people who established it and empowered it in the first place, to the point that it becomes tyrannical or dictatorial, it is the right, - no, it is the duty of men to overthrow that government and to organize a new system to guard their future security."
The current Democrat party has been hijacked; it is not the benevolent, God-fearing party of my parents and grandparents. It already has and no doubt will continue to make our lives increasingly more miserable. We have no reasonable assurance that it will not continue to dispatch federal thugs and goons to harass and intimidate us to the point of restricting our travel, seizing our property, incarcerating us, or even killing us. That’s what tyrants do, and the party has shown us no good reason to expect less after the next election.
Nevertheless, understand and take comfort in this; there is a great, patriotic resistance out here across our nation. Millions of us who value liberty more than safety and comfort are, if necessary, willing to bleed or even make ultimate sacrifices for our freedom.
So, in closing be prepared, vote right, and pray for God’s continued blessings on the United States of America.

Your Representative Swore An Oath To YOU

 I don't care what political party you identify with; I don't care what color you are; I don't care about your gender, your ancestry, your economic status, or your religion. If you are a citizen of the United States of America and you value your freedom, this post should mean something to you.

Your congressional representative, when he (or she, or it, or whatever) was elected, stood up, raised his right hand, and swore this oath to YOU.
"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; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
In the past, our nation has had presidents, congressmen, and senators, who have trashed and trampled our constitution. They were lawless criminals whose actions were destructive to our culture, economy, safety, and happiness. And now, we clearly have too many who are truly intentional domestic (or maybe foreign) enemies of the state and Congress (our elected representatives) has the constitutional responsibility and authority to STOP THEM and IMPEACH THEM.
And if any congressman (or congresswoman or whatever) will not keep his promise to protect us, he is an enemy of the people and deserves to be removed from his office in the next election.
Write to YOUR congressman and tell him to shape up or get out. And remember, VOTE RIGHT ON ELECTION DAY.

MY FIRST LETTER TO JOE BIDEN (revised)

 Dear Mr. Biden.

Why am I on your email list of Democrat supporters? Do you know? There isn’t a day goes by that I don’t get donation appeals to support your presidential campaign. So I ask again; do you know who I am and why I am on your list?
Well, I do know so allow me to tell you.
You see, for several years now, I have been on the DNC email list of supporters ever since I first wrote a sarcastic birthday message to your former president.
That was the trigger. As much as I tried with rude, obnoxious, and downright disrespectful responses, Barack Obama, His wife, and all his mind-numbed minions continued to thank me and solicit more donations. The fact that they placed my name on the DNC supporter list made it obvious that they (and you) don’t care about your constituents. THEY NEVER BOTHER TO READ ANY CORRESPONDENCE THEY RECEIVE.
And so here I am, a Conservative, Christian, America-loving citizen who will NEVER vote for you or any Democrat, and yet, I remain on the list of brain-dead minions.
And YOU all think I am a supporter and potential donor. Furthermore, I would bet that YOU too, will never read my letters.
But I am happy about one thing. For years I wanted a membership in the National Rifle Association but I could not afford it. But that all changed a few years ago when
I started getting donation requests from Barack Obama. He wasn’t asking for much; just a mere $3.00. Every time He, or your party, asks me to help with a $3 donation, I put three bucks away. You don't know just how quickly it all added up and every year, on my birthday, I would take enough of the money to buy myself a present; I sent it to the NRA for my annual membership dues.
So I am writing this letter to thank you and the DNC. I trust you will be pleased to know that I had accumulated enough to purchase a LIFE MEMBERSHIP in the National Rifle Association.
Again, I say Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for the wonderful birthday present.
P.S. PLEASE keep sending your appeals to my email address; I have some grandsons who would also like to be NRA members.
Sincerely,
Ralph M. Petersen
