Day 86 – No Executive Orders

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

BREACH OF TRUST!

After 86 days of false promises on executive orders for gun control, there still remains absolutely nothing posted on the White House website concerning those orders.

It is my opinion that in what is commonplace among failed governments, the people, of whom are supposed to be the governing body in this country, have through progressive teaching, a failure to learn history, while taking their eyes off the Creator, thus losing their way, have no comprehension of the first inalienable right of self protection and in conjunction any understanding as to what our inalienable rights are or the importance to sustaining a moral direction that leads to a prosperous life.

In listening to the leaders and citizens of this country in the past few years, and in particular of late, in discussing such things as forcing people to be slaves to President Obama’s healthcare plan, along with the destruction of gun rights, as well as all our rights, I am constantly reminded of what is written in the book, “The Two Republics”, by A.T. Jones.

Below is a very important excerpt that helps to explain what was the mindset of the Founding Fathers and the root of much discussion about the need to craft the Declaration of Independence and the national Constitution. It is incredible to me that in just a mere 235 or so years, Americans have very little understanding of the importance of independence, self determination, liberty and inalienable rights, all the while believing they, somehow, have a right to take away the rights of others.

“The Two Republics”, by A.T. Jones – excerpt:

In declaring the objects of government to be to secure to the people the rights which they already possess in full measure and inalienable degree, and to effect their safety and happiness in the enjoyment of those rights; and in declaring the right of the people, in the event named, to alter or abolish the government which they have, and institute a new one on such principles and in such form as to them seems best; there is likewise declared not only the complete subordination but also the absolute impersonality of government. It is therein declared that the government is but a device, a piece of political machinery, framed and set up by the people, by which they would make themselves secure in the enjoyment of the inalienable rights which they already possess as men, and which they have by virtue of being men in society and not by virtue of government; — the right which was theirs before government was; which is their own in the essential meaning of the term; and ‘which they do not hold by any sub-infeudation, but by direct homage and allegiance to the Owner and Lord of all’ (Stanley Matthews), their Creator, who has endowed them with those rights. And in thus declaring the impersonality of government, there is wholly uprooted every vestige of any character of paternity in the government.

In declaring the equality of all men in the possession of these inalienable rights, there is likewise declared the strongest possible safeguard of the people. For this being the declaration of the people, each one of the people stand thereby pledged to the support of the principle thus declared. Therefore, each individual is pledged, in the exercise of his own inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, so to act as not to interfere with any other person in the free and perfect exercise of this inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Any person who so acts as to restrict or inter with the exercise of any other person’s right to life, or liberty, or the pursuit of happiness, denies the principle, to the maintenance of which he is pledged, and does in effect subvert the government. For, rights being equal, if one may so act, every other one may do so; and thus no man’s right is recognized, government is gone, and only anarchy remains. Therefore, by every interest, person as well as general, private as well as public, every individual among the people is pledged in the enjoyment of his right to life, or liberty, or the pursuit of happiness, so to conduct himself as not to interfere in the least degree with the equal right of every other one to the free and full exercise of this enjoyment of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. ‘For the rights of man, as man, must be understood in a sense that can admit of no single exception; for to allege an exception is the same thing as to deny the principle. We reject, therefore, with scorn, any profession of respect to the principle which, in fact, comes to us clogged and contradicted by a petition for an exception….To profess the principle and then to plead for an exception, let the plea be what it may, is to deny the principle, and it is to utter a treason against humanity. The rights of man must everywhere all the world over be recognized and respected.’ (Isaac Taylor)
