Every politician from liberal democrat to conservative republican likes to wrap themselves in the flag and the constitution. Do they really support it?
Article One, Section Eight of the constitution states: “Congress shall have power to … declare War”. It does not state that the President shall have power to declare war. Nor does it state that the Congress shall have the power to delegate its power to declare war to the President.
The Tenth Amendment states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” It does not state that the federal government has powers not expressly granted to it in the Constitution. It does not state that the Congress or President can take powers not expressly granted to it if no one objects.
The Constitution plainly and clearly states what it means. It was written at grammar school level English at the time it was written.
While all of us accord respect and gratitude to the military, especially veterans, for their service, anyone who has served recently, especially if they have fathers or grandfathers who have served, know that today’s military is not the same military it was 20 or 40 years ago.
Today’s military is a political force. It is a globalist force. It has been stalinized by the executive branch through purging experienced military leaders, replacing them with political lackeys at the Pentagon.
It’s primary purpose is no longer defense of the constitution or the constitution of this nation, in other words its people, but is used as an extension of foreign and domestic policy. Do you believe that is constitutional in the spirit and intent of what the founding fathers would consider “constitutional”?
“…what all of us need to realize is, World War II was the last constitutionally fought war in which America has been engaged. The United Nations was created at the end of WWII, and ever since then, our military forces have increasingly become the “peacekeeping” arm of that evil institution.”
“Since WWII, American forces have fought major wars in South Korea, South Vietnam (including Laos and Cambodia), Kosovo, the Persian Gulf (Kuwait), Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Pakistan–all for the benefit of the United Nations.”
“Ever since the United Nations was created, its interests have dominated the usage of US forces. In fact, our military today is quickly morphing into the tip of the spear for a burgeoning, global New World Order. To those with eyes to see, the evidence is everywhere. It’s not even being hidden anymore. Have you seen that new US Navy television commercial? It boldly proclaims, “The US Navy: A GLOBAL FORCE For Good.””
“This politically correct, UN-dominated New World Order has changed (and is changing) our US military right before our eyes. It has taken the greatest and proudest independent fighting force in the world–one created to defend the people and property of the United States–and turned it into a global military policeman for evil Machiavellians at the UN.”
The above was written by the Constitution Party’s last candidate for president. To dismiss it out of hand due to its source would be foolhardy, if indeed what is stated is factually accurate.
Sometimes an outsider’s perspective is a fresh reminder if one has deviated of one’s intended path.
