There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,
contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance.
I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who
are not even aware of the dangers.

It Makes Me Wonder
As the year 2013 comes to a close and we begin 2014, the focus will no doubt be on the deadlines on healthcare coverage and the fines they call taxes that will ensue. But that is not what makes me wonder.
Does anyone know who has the authority to write law? Does anyone know where in the Constitution of the Republic of the United States of America, it says that the Department of Health and Human Services, or the Supreme Court, or even the President can just make up laws without a Congressional vote in both Houses?
Are Americans so ignorant that they do not realize that they are being conned out of their money, their rights, their very lives? Are we so plugged in that we are so tuned out of the reality of what we face as individuals and as a nation?
We probably would have fared far better had we revolted against the Federal Reserve Act. But the real damage is done when one allows one Amendment to override an integral part of the Constitution that protects the liberty of the People. Above all, individual rights must always trump the rights of any group.
I have watched in horror as Congress did nothing to impeach Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, and yes, even Barry (Barack Hussein Obama Jr.) Soetoro himself.
I watch the privately-owned major media focus on stories and people who stir emotions while distracting us from the real issues. Issues like the death of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, killed with a weapon allowed (illegally) to be bought and taken to Mexican criminals, aka Fast and Furious; and Benghazi, another cover-up resulting in deaths of four Americans; the IRS auditing and holding up tax-exempt status for non-profits that are not aligned with current government policies and ideologies; and continuing lies about a blatant power grab of one sixth the nations economy in the form of a totally un-affordable health care act in which laws are being written and changed without any congressional debate or vote. It makes me wonder why Americans are not yelling about this!
A judge who decides that the Patriot Act and the security of the nation trumps personal rights to privacy without due process. And that is to reverse a previous court's decision that the NSA practices violated the Fourth Amendment. Can the People allow one man to decide their privacy rights?
Since Congress is doing nothing, since every day we lose more control of our lives and liberty to an ever growing and encroaching government, I wonder how much more Americans will tolerate before they begin to take action.
I wonder how we had what we had in the 1960's that brought such awareness into America was allowed to be suppressed once again and so thoroughly. I wonder how much longer we can survive as a free nation.
