Conservatives pay lip service
to the Constitution

During the extensive discussion over the Harriett Miers nomination, conservatives complained that Bush’ nomination didn’t fit the bill. The only choice as a replacement should be a “strict constructionist” who would stick to the Constitution and not legislate from the bench. That sounds like an excellent suggestion … too bad conservatives refuse to apply the same standards to their congressional representatives.
The Republicans have controlled Congress since January 1995 and they have collectively taken America straight to Hell ever since. Just because a politician says they’re conservative doesn’t mean they are adhering to the restrictions placed on them by the U.S. Constitution, specifically Article 1, Section 8. Let me give you but a few examples of what the Republican-controlled Congress has given “we the people” since they took power.
They have refused to abolish the grossly unconstitutional NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) and GATT-WTO (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade). These destructive treaties have virtually destroyed our three most important job sectors (agriculture, manufacturing, industrial) and have cost millions of Americans their jobs. CAFTA (Central American Free Trade Agreement ) was just unconstitutionally “passed.” This treaty will further destroy jobs and our sovereignty. And Bush wants the FTAA (Free Trade of the Americas) done by Dec. 31, 2005, and it will be the final nail in the coffin for American sovereignty.
They have given us the Patriot Act, Department of Homeland Security and a plethora of draconian laws now on the books for the never-ending “war on terrorism.” There is no need for this monstrous beast called “Homeland Security,” we the people need only reconstitute the state militias.
The “smaller government” Republicans have shamelessly run up the national debt to the private banking cartel putting you, your children and grandchildren into forced indentured servitude. National debt as of Jan. 2, 1995, was nearly $4.8 trillion. As of Oct. 31, 2005, it had grown to over $8 trillion.
Counterfeit U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer wants to unlawfully raid the people’s treasury for $3.1 billion borrowed dollars to help eligible low-income households meet their home-heating needs. Pure communism, but will the Republicans stop this unconstitutional spending? Not a chance. Votes are everything, the Constitution is just a rag they continue to shred unchecked.
“Hate crime” bills sponsored by Republicans – i.e., Arlen Specter, Susan Collins and Norm Coleman – are clearly unconstitutional. Think they care? They owe their big-money donors.
The Republican-controlled Congress just passed another new law that will give the dysfunctional Food and Drug Administration authority to ban virtually any herb or specialty product from the market if it failed to pass an arbitrary risk-benefit analysis. Remember: There’s no money in the cure, only the treatment. The big pharmaceutical companies have been buying the favors of Congress for decades, trying to destroy the organic food and supplements industry. Too many Americans have learned how to cure and heal naturally, cutting into the billions of dollars in profits for the pharma kings. In order to counter this multi-billion dollar industry to push more pills, Congress has been bought and paid for at the expense of the American people.
Until the fabulous Minutemen became a force to be reckoned with, the Republican-controlled Congress sat back and allowed a wholesale invasion to flourish, importing crime and disease on a mass scale – not to mention terrorist cells crossing the border. These RINOs (Republicans in name only) have done nothing to stop the FDIC and banks from unlawfully giving home mortgage loans to illegals. Now, when illegals smuggling themselves across the border will become a big election issue, these phony “conservatives” in Congress are jumping on the bandwagon.
Foreign aid is grossly unconstitutional, as are “transfer” payments to the communist United Nations, USAID, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the Bank of International Settlements, yet the Republican-controlled Congress has not stopped this unlawful stealing from the people’s treasury. Sen. Sam Brownbeck, R-Kan., got $3 million put in the budget to “promote democracy” in Iran. “This money should be made available immediately for those seeking to express their opposition to the hard-line Islamic government and to promote internationally recognized human rights,” said Brownback. What an outrage! Democracy is the most evil form of government.
The RINOs have refused to get rid of the Endangered Species Act, which has destroyed the livelihood of tens of thousands of Americans. They have refused to remove one compromised federal judge or any of the Supreme Court justices who voted against Americans and the Constitution in the Kelo decision. I could fill a hundred pages with specific examples of the Republican-controlled Congress simply picking up where Democrats left off. Two exceptions are abortion and the toxic homosexual agenda.
Despite the overwhelming evidence that the Republican-controlled Congress has done nothing to return to a limited form of republican government since they took control in January 1995, how can conservatives continue to vote them back in office election after election? Why do these conservatives continue to reward dishonest public servants who lie to them about Social Security, the misapplication of the income tax laws and refusing to abolish the central bank?
If the American people put the same communists (Democrats) and “conservatives in name only” (Republicans) back in Congress in ’06, you will see a massive financial meltdown and the final destruction of this sovereign republic. I hope Republicans will vote for any challenger to a GOP incumbent in the primaries (except Ron Paul and Tom Tancredo) or vote for a Constitution Party candidate.
