No One Is Enforcing America’s “Rule Book”
Reminder: Freedom Rising Webinar This Sunday
Dollars to donuts, neither you, any of the 100,000 fans in the stadium on Super Bowl Sunday, nor but a few of the tens of millions who will be watching the game on their televisions have ever seen, much less read, the official NFL Rule Book.
However, as the game clock ticks down you and they will cry out as a great collective with every witnessed violation of that Rule Book. From the stadium great roars for justice will arise from those who instinctively know a rule has been broken.
What then? The NFL Rule Book is enforced. The enforcers, donned in black and white, announce the specific violations and then penalize the group that violated the Rule Book.
The contest on the field of play pits one group against another, laboriously striving to gain more ground than the other. As one side gains ground, the other loses ground. It’s axiomatic. It’s the essential nature of the confrontation. However fleeting, the prize is well-earned bragging rights, money and fame.
There exists, however, another contest in America, with far more at stake, and which continues each and every day. This fierce confrontation as well, plays out between two opposing and most determined sides: the “Free” and the “Government”, each seeking to gain ground from the other. As Government gains ground, Freedom must lose ground, like night follows day. It’s axiomatic. It’s the essential nature of the confrontation. The prize: enslavement of a servant people or Liberty and a servant government. The winner takes all.
Unfortunately, very few Americans have ever read the “National” Rule Book (i.e., the U.S. Constitution) much less their “State” Rule Book (i.e., State Constitutions). Fewer still have a functional understanding of the history, meaning, effect and significance of each provision and how it affects and protects their Liberty.
The good news is that whether from the field or the bleachers, the Free and their supporters instinctively know a violation of the Constitution when they see it. They may not be able to cite the exact “Rule”, but their instinct will impulsively cause them to rise, and to cry out their collective hurt and discontent.
So what happens next?
Unlike the NFL, there are no persons appointed to officially enforce our Rule Books – i.e., our Constitutions. Oh sure, there are the minions with big guns, shiny badges, pepper spray and robes, but the problem is they all work for Team Government.
This then is the essential Truth; the Constitutions that define our Rule of Law cannot defend themselves against those in Government who ignore and violate them. Neither Government officials nor the media conglomerates like opposition from any quarter. Ditto for many corporations, lobbyists and financiers who scheme without end to operate in a lawless realm.
The Rule of Law, under which this “Nation Under God” and Liberty are designed to co-exist, will not be enforced unless We the Free People of America enforce it.
Listen to Jefferson’s warning, “The People are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our Liberties.”
Organization Is Key
It should be of no surprise that Individuals and small groups cannot, and have effectively failed to enforce the Rule of Law, from their State and Federal Constitutions on down, against violations by local, state and federal government officials.
If the Free are to prevail in securing Freedom and Liberty, a mass-movement of, by and for the Free is required to enforce the Rules: nation-wide, pro-active, non-violent, non-political, non-partisan, intelligent and rational in approach.
Organization is essential. Leadership is vital. Resources are critical.
Getting started is indispensible.
We have a Plan and have developed a set of tools to make the task of organizing for Liberty easier, performable, attainable, facile and delightful.
Now, let’s get organized.
