How is it that we, the people of the most prosperous, successful, and advanced democracy in history are unable to dispose of the most contemptible, incompetent, lying, anti-rule of law, tyrant imaginable?
Just how clever were the Founding Fathers if the very survival of our Republic may necessitate the use of uncivil disobedience by the masses to purge the government of evil men and women who refuse to consider the well-being and will of the governed?
Whatever happened to the notion that governance was somehow based on the “consent of the governed”?
Clearly, the Founders were counting on the good faith and conscience of leaders and their followers to “do the right thing” when the trust and confidence of the American people were ruptured beyond repair, as was the case in 1974 when Richard M. Nixon was driven out of office by leaders of the Republican Party whom acted in the best interests of the nation, rather than hoarding partisan power, by escorting the beleaguered Nixon to his helicopter for the one-way trip back to San Clemente, California.
However, the Founders could not have imagined the ascension of a tyrant like Barack Hussein Obama, a man so self-absorbed and vain that the interests of the American people are not even considered, much less made an important priority.
What might our Constitution look like if the Founders had been cynical enough to imagine that a personage such as Barack Obama would seize power and be supported by a gaggle of equally-detestable partisans who would sustain the tyrant at the expense of 330 million of we the people?
Yet, here we are in 2013, seemingly helpless to free ourselves from the tyrannical abuses of an embittered man of privilege who, despite his unearned power and wealth, has neither love nor respect for the history, traditions, or values of the people whose lives he governs with such reckless abandon!
Is there no hope? Is change for the better out of the question? Must America endure three more years before common sense, humility, and the American way can be resurrected?
Thankfully, at least one retired Army General is offering hope and change of the sort that would rid America of the Barack Obama fairy tale and bring a measure of Americanism back to America.
As reported at the reference:
WASHINGTON – A retired Army general is calling for the “forced resignations” of President Obama, other administration officials and the leadership of Congress for the direction they’re taking the nation, his list of grievances including the systematic political purge of hundreds of senior military officers in the U.S. military.
Retired Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely told WND he is calling for nationwide rallies and protests to demand the resignations and added that a peaceful “civil uprising is still not out of question.”
n his capacity as chairman of the organization Stand Up America, Vallely issued what he termed a “National Call to Action” to force the resignations of Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
Vallely, formerly the deputy commanding general of Pacific Command, said the current crop of leaders must be forced to resign by the “demand resignation” process, which he explained requires massive grass-roots protests and social networking. As an example, he cited the public and media pressure that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon.
Impeachment, Vallely said, is not a viable option because of “partisan politics.”
“Our federal government continues down the path of destroying America,” he said. “Americans must now stand up and put America back on the right track.”
In issuing his national call to action, Vallely said the federal government has not subsided in “sucking the oxygen” out of America.
“And we call to action all branches of government to do your constitutional duties and not be led astray in the cultural and moral decay of America. We have witnessed far too many lies,” he said, as well as “deception and the corruption of the republic.”
Vallely reminds Americans that the Declaration of Independence itself states that whenever “any Form of Government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem more likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.”
Vallely said the nation he long defended is self-destructing “before our very eyes,” because of “our inept and incompetent leadership in Washington.”
“The battle is on,” he added, “and we shall not retreat.”
Hear, hear! We shall not retreat!
What a magnificent thought in this, the season of miracles!
