Ideologues, elitists, and oligarchs have one thing in common: They politic and even fight for the ability to tell others how to live. Their major influences enable them to use an enlarged government to dismantle society, destroy individual freedom, and otherwise twist constitutional rights to their exclusive advantage. I cite one milestone and one process that women never hear.
- Women and children benefit the most from moral and religious values that smother the most uncivilized and unlawful behaviors of men. Thus, our Judeo-Christian culture became female dominated as America developed within the concepts of In God We Trust, Liberty, E Pluribus Unum, and first amendment rights. Unfortunately, the wheels to unravel the Constitution began with presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson in the early 20th Century. The guillotine for severing the head of American freedom was unleashed in 1913 with the 16th and 17th amendments to the Constitution and creation of the Federal Reserve. The 16th gave the House of Representatives the previously unconstitutional right to collect tax on incomes—a great new power to spend, right? The 17th liberated senators from being responsible to their state legislatures—a great new decision-making freedom, right? Creation of the FED gave bankers the right to print and control the supply of money and interest rates—a great new financial power, right? The House, Senate, and FED gained such immense new powers to tell us how to live that they no longer represent We the People but themselves first and foremost.
- In early draft form, the Declaration of Independence said men are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and Property.” The last term was changed to “Pursuit of Happiness” because Southern states considered slaves to be property and Northern states could not permit slavery to be viewed as a right. Ownership of property is essential to individual freedom, which makes it a target for those seeking to tell us how to live. As an example, Marxism is far from dead in America. The ideology permeates the Progressive political movement that started and swelled under presidents Roosevelt (1901-1909) and Wilson (1913-1921). As Progressivism fell in disfavor with Wilson, Marxist theorists in the 1920s formulated a new strategy for takeover of America. They set out to impose a new culture upon our Judeo-Christian heritage. They ignore the very common pursuit of happiness as it doesn’t block their subversion. Instead, they subvert and work to ultimately kill the institutions of family, religion, and private property. Their progress continues too.
So, ladies, if you wonder where America is headed, just look around you. Are family, religion, and private property under attack? Do you feel that your senators and representatives represent your values? Does your banker seem to want to serve you personally or want you to abide primarily by his expectations? Is your government functioning as you wish it would. The questions are rhetorical of course, but perhaps your view of what’s coming will become clearer.
