What Are We Willing to Do in 2010? PDF Print E-mail

It feels like 2010 arrived at breakneck speed. Perhaps this is due to the fast-tracking of legislation that, by its very design, will financially impact American lifestyles in ways we cannot yet comprehend. The time has come for Americans to truly question the lawfulness of the legislation that is being passed in Washington, and what we are willing to do about it. Make no mistake: The next three years will shape for generations to come how we define ourselves as Americans.

Continental Congress 2009

The Continental Congress 2009 concluded its 11 days of deliberating on Saturday, November 21. The work product that is emerging, titled "Articles of Freedom," is a testament to a measured, thoughtful, and lawful process that all Americans can be proud of. The more than 100 delegates that convened from 48 states set out to end the violations of the Constitution through which the People's administrative and judicial processes have already been exhausted - i.e., exercising their First Amendment Right to Petition for a Redress of Grievances with no legitimate response from the federal government.

The resultant document, "Articles of Freedom," is the proverbial line in the sand that, if 3 to 5 percent of America embraces it, can restore Constitutional order in America. The "Remedial Instructions to Congress & the States" as well as the suggested "Civic Action" for the people to take to enforce these instructions illustrate that we are in our Republic's 11th hour. If we are to remain a free people, it is time to take action beyond two-party elections, beyond unheard petitioning, and beyond rallies and marches. Those efforts have not worked.

Many of the decision-making processes we engage in require some degree of trust. Trust characterizes nearly every relationship under the sun -- whether husband-wife, parent-child, teacher-student, doctor-patient -- including legislator-voter/taxpayer and media-consumer. With regard to this week's cover story subject -- the H1N1 flu virus and its vaccines -- the decisions made by Americans to accept the professed need for widespread immunization and the safety of government-procured vaccinations is based almost entirely on trust. People who take the time to evaluate and consider the risk-to-benefit ratio of immunization against any virus find themselves asking, "Whom should I trust?" Many of us depend upon the media for our information on this subject. Unfortunately, the dominant mainstream media is no longer worthy of our trust, most especially in matters of life and death.

The media has proven its wholesale complicity in deliberate manipulation of information/news in favor of its own agenda(s) and, more importantly, in favor of its commercial interests. The H1N1-virus controversy is no different.

There are few plot lines in any good book or movie that don't evince man's age-old struggle against tyranny. These tales nearly always depict their heroes championing whatever battle needs fighting for freedom to prevail.  Why does this theme permeate all cultures of every generation since storytelling began? I think it is because this timeless struggle against tyranny is, at its core, man's struggle against original sin - man's innate need to dominate all things, most especially his own kind.

Richard MackThere are many politically inspiring books available for citizens interested in changing the direction of our country, and none more so than The County Sheriff: America's Last Hope by Sheriff Richard Mack, published this year.

Not only does this easy-to-read, 47-page book sensibly explain the current destructive path America is on, it opens up a whole new set of possibilities for restoring this country's focus on its constitutional republic.

Sheriff Mack is the former sheriff of Graham County, Arizona, who in 1994 brought a lawsuit against the Clinton Administration and the recently enacted Brady Bill for what he believed was an unconstitutional abuse of authority.
