Legislation Without Representation – A 2016 Perspective

There are various comments/questions being raised about the current state of our national political condition, and the potential for failure toward the goal of MAGA in 2016.

To those voices specifically; to the members of the Rebel Alliance who hold trepidation about the possibility of losing; to people holding these concerns, I would like to take a moment and present an alternate perspective.

tea party dc

If you were to ask a general question about the beginning of the American Revolution to a thousand average educated Americans, the customary reference point would be the Boston Tea Party.   Ask what was the issue and you’ll hear the phrase: “taxation without representation“.  England, and specifically King George, being the essential tax benefactor.

Fair enough, albeit modestly simplistic.  Using that historic reference framework, and attempting to carry a crude analogy forward, I would argue we’ve already well passed the dumping of the proverbial tea phase.

After the famous Boston Tea Party, the British Parliament responded in 1774 with the Coercive Acts, or Intolerable Acts, which, among other provisions, ended local self-government in Massachusetts and closed Boston’s commerce.  This only increased the resolve of the Sons of Liberty.  King George sent 4,000 British troops under the command of General Thomas Gage to occupy Boston.

The Sons of Liberty (Sam Adams, John Hancock etc) essentially became an insurgency within Boston and continued their organizational efforts after the occupying British forces disbanded local and provincial government.

Adams, Hancock and the Son’s of Liberty formed the Provincial Congress, and subversively organized teams of local militias and coordinated the accumulation of, and hiding of weapons, and other military supplies.

The key point to note is during the phase after the Boston tea destruction and prior to the battles of Lexington and Concord, the activity was insurgent.  General Thomas Gage and his army ruled the commonwealth, the Sons of Liberty used stealth and secrecy to operate.

In 2016 we have already passed the destruction of the tea phase when we, like the Sons of Liberty, united to break the grip of the DC UniParty and successfully nominated Donald Trump.   We did not fracture tea boxes, we fractured a rigged political system.  We are not currently fighting taxation without representation per se’; we are fighting legislation without representation.

And, just the British Parliament, the response from the DC UniParty was fast, strong and severe.  Instead of a British army, the DC UniParty dispatched every media tool, every Wall Street financier, almost all popular culture figures, and every available ounce of leverage they have to retain their grip on power, against us.

As a specific and direct consequence, we now hold a tenuous stake in a new Republican party.  And just like the provincial congress, our efforts have shifted into the Deplorable insurgency phase.  While the army of the MSM marches in the streets 24/7 via broadcast and print media against us, we moderate our visibility on alternate/new media.

The analogy is a critical frame of reference because the time for wondering about “what if” has passed.  We have already destroyed the tea.  There is no retreat from this moment, and more importantly, we have nothing left to lose.

There are many who use a frame of reference about ‘saving a constitutional republic‘; while I do not mean to be dismissive of this benevolent sensibility – in case you have not been paying attention we’ve long since passed the threshold of that possibility.

The architecture of our own U.S. government is now operating independent of the electorate (Obamacare, Omnibus etc.).  Congress is consistently passing legislation without appropriate representation (PR Bailout, Ominbus, Corker/Cardin amendment, Fast-Track Trade Authorization etc.), and the various operational constructs, divisions, and agencies within the DC UniParty are now fully weaponized against us (IRS targeting, FBI Comey/email non-finding, etc.).

If you trace back to when the first Bible was "compiled"...,you find that it is a government document, which was RE-written to benefit the prevailing power structure of the time.  That same structure remains today. The reason that people have left the churches..., is because their inherent spirituality ...,"senses"..., that they are systematically being lied too...,over and over. We as a society have lost the ability to "rightly divide the truth". If the ones that know the truth ever managed to get a word in edgewise..., the prevailing structure ridicules, and condescends to the purveyor of that TRUTH..., and the SHEEP follow along..., with the wrong judgement..., as they have been "trained" to do.

Until you get it "right"...,you are condemned to return to this world of "death"..., repeatedly. Yes..., I know you don't believe in that. O.K..., then argue with Jesus..., at Matthew 17:10.

George Bush Sr. voting for hillary proves the conspiracy of the NWO. WE are way passed dumping tea and we are way overdue on what came next after tea dumping. But as my friend and I say "Aww Well". When Hillary is elected by fraud, are you all going to keep typing and bitching and saying "Aww Well"? How many of you have truly boycotted the NFL or made in China? The Republicans are just as guilty, including Ted Lying Cruz. His staff would not answer my question about obamacare's unconstitutional facts. Mr. Constitution himself (liar) staff members told me they agreed at first then they would not put the answer on paper and became very unprofessional when I pressed the issue. AWW FKG WELL! Right? We can bitch until they come for us, because I don't think any one really boycotts or effectively gives a shit nor has the courage to do what it will truly take. AWW WELL, it won't effect me. Just my kids or grandkids. Well screw that, I guess the few of us will have to do it again if Hillary is elected there will be no choice. Republicans are against us too. Tim Huelskamp was primaried by his own elitist party. Fk those bassterds.

It is time to clean the mess in Washington DC up and deport Soros, put GHW Bush in jail, and put David Rockfeller in jail with him.

Excellent article, but those who reject the current candidates are not suggesting that either one is acceptable to save America.  Do we turn America over to a power hungry dictator or do we turn America over to a power hungry dictator?   Neither candidate supports the Constitution  and neither candidate KNOWS the Constitution.  So which power hungry dictator do we chose?  I chose neither.  And remember those who reject the choices did not create the situation which we face. 

   

The idea that we can not RESTORE or SAVE our Constitutional Republic is a false one... If the People rally under a Trump banner we can in fact work within the existing system too RESTORE our Constitution and the Republic.

However, it is becoming apparent that the elections may be rigged and the outcome already determined... the MSM and the Powerful Elite Aristocracy behind the Government are apparently willing to take this struggle to the next level.

These insane individuals would rather see open Civil War with all that entails, nationally and Globally... believing they can emerge victorious. These miscreant ignore the external threats to the US and the Global ramifications of their choices.  The coming conflagration will lead to total chaos... and the end of America, its ruling class, and prosperity. Suicide seems to be what the RINO and his Globalist counter part wants. If America continues to run down this rabbit hole it is exactly what they will get.

ron i HAVE SEEN NO SIGN THAT TRUMP EVEN KNOWS WHAT THE cONSTITUTION IS , LET ALONE ABLE TO RETURN US TO it.

in fact I have seen him speak against it more than for it

it falls on the people and the states to do this since thats where the real power is

It is about time to discuss these criminal democrats and republicans who answer to their corporate donors rather than the people who they are supposed to represent.. you know the American people...

Does anyone know how many NRA members there are in America?  I have no idea what this article is trying to tell me.   However, I do understand that the federal government is corrupt.  Obama and congress are turning America into a third world country.  My friends complain that America is being destroyed from within by liberals and the media.  So once again, does anyone know how many NRA members there are in America?  The real power in this country resides in the NRA because we are armed and considered dangerous.   We are the largest standing army in the world and Washington will not take this country away from us Ever!!!!!!

We need to explore an Article V convention of the states, to return our nation to its Constitutional roots

This appears to be a dead end... as the State's simply refuse to call for one.  It should be noted that there already exist more than a sufficient number of State's Petitions to call for an Article V convention of States on file with Congress...

Old petitions filed with Congress calling for an Article V Convention don't expire. The existing petitions must either be recalled or otherwise cancelled to be void... ignored in the count... to call an Article V Convention.  The Constitution doesn't provide guidance on how to apply ( a format) nor does it state petitions on file may become dated or ignored... because Congress doesn't want to act on them.    In fact,  Congress is ignoring  many, many, open and valid applications that call for an Article V convention. 

It appears that not one State is willing to SUE Congress to compel Congress to call the Convention... based on the many, many valid and open petitions calling for an Article V Convention.. It is all a sick joke on the American people.  We are being maneuvered by a corrupt political class... found in both political parties.

There will never be just U. S. of A. government now without there be another revolution to but the government on track with what our Founding Fathers ment OUR government to be

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
