I hear people who call themselves Democrats, Libertarians, Republicans, Progressives, Leftists, Conservatives, and all other labels used as identity. The question is “Who are you really?”I define myself as an American National. I was born in America as were my parents. Their parents immigrated to America from Italy, Latvia, and Russia. I am not an Italian America, nor am I a Latvian or Russian American. I am simply American. And I am proud to be an American.
What defines me is my character. My ancestry has nothing to do with who I am. That is a choice that I make every day as I deal with the realities of life. I am defined by the way I live life, my compassion and love for others, the principles that I adhere to as a human being. Nothing else really matters.
I take responsibility for my own actions, and do not blame government or others for what I do. Labels do not identify me, in fact, labels divide me from others who choose to label themselves and act in manners that are contrary to the principles that I live by.
Every day as I read the news and the comments made about the news, and every day I stand up and walk away from the computer shaking my head in disbelief. The constant protests, acts of violence, the actions of law enforcement, and especially the courts, prove to me that the united States of America is a sinking ship. And like rats abandoning a sinking ship at sea, people abandon the principles upon which this once great collection of nation states was founded.
Between the end of the war for independence and martial law actions of Abraham Lincoln, each State was a free and sovereign nation in their own right. The Constitution for the united States did not abrogate that free and sovereign status, in fact it reinforced it by delegating 18 enumerated duties and responsibilities to the federal services company of which former General of the Continental Army, George Washington was selected as President and Chief Executive Officer of. That company was incorporated in 1871 (and a few more times later) in unconstitutional actions taken under military occupation, by the Union Army and the Congress. All actions taken by the representatives appointed to represent the People of the Confederate States of America were unlawful, up to and including the current Thirteenth Amendment onward to the Twenty Seventh. They could not have been properly ratified under the Constitution because the People of the South did not elect their representatives (nor there judges) so how could these representatives have voted as representatives of the People?
Today, we have a government that is not representative of We the People, in fact we are the servants rather than the masters of government. In was a slow and deliberate plan to remove every single freedom and right and grant privileges to those willing to obey the rule of government.
