All-American Donald Trump may well be a stalking Trojan horse set up by the globalist cabal that really runs the American government and that of the entire globe but we may never know, since it appears that the GOPe will do all they can to destroy him. Additionally, one wonders whether any of the current candidates will really do anything to halt the descent into despotism; indeed, if any of them really want to. After all, they profit from the current situation, which they wouldn’t do if the nation were somehow returned to its Constitutional roots. For most of them, that is really all they care about now, profiting in office like hundreds and thousands before them, with the Clintonistas being the prime example followed closely behind by OBO the Clown Prince of Fools and his corrupt acolytes on both sides of the aisle.
Since the time Woodrow Wilson capitulated to the globalist cabal in 1913 the Progressives morphed into Communists, who morphed into Marxists. They are not “Socialists” in the historical sense, merely liberal leftist Marxists “fundamentally transforming” the United States from a capitalist nation into a socialist nation into a communist nightmare. Over the past 60 years the Communists have taken over our public schools as per numbers 17, 18, and 19 in 45 Communist Goals to Take Over America so basically we handed the schools over to them in abject surrender. We The People didn’t fight them when we had the chance, and they have been winning ever since, with one glorious blip on the radar screen which was the highlight of the RWR eight years of global prosperity and triumph.
As a point of historical record and comparison, the fate of the Constitutional Republic of the United States and the Roman Empire is eerily entwined in the “before and afters” of their respective periods of rise and fall. History records that the Roman Senate, run by hereditary families, eventually became very corrupt just prior to Caesar’s time, when the Senate began buying the votes of public assemblies to ensure the Senate got the laws they wanted. The Roman Senate was not really a legislative body, it acted mostly as an advisory board to the magistrates like consuls and praetors. Their immense wealth having increased tremendously following the Punic wars, was used to sway the public assemblies who were the actual legislators, proving once again that republics devolve into corrupt tyrannies led by strong men like a Caesar over time. It is a feature, not a bug in the system and it would appear that it can’t be helped.
Under the original Constitution of the United States, the states were subordinated to a central government. The election of senators by the states reassured Anti-federalists that there would be some protection against the swallowing up of states and their powers by the federal government, providing a check on the balance of power. With the passing of the 17th Amendment in 1913 however, all that changed. Senators were no longer appointed by state legislatures, but by popular election just as their colleagues in the House. Now they’re just glorified, high cost vote panderers.
Today there is a palpable sentiment among the American people that we have reached a turning point both as a nation and as a culture. The fact is that having elected Barack Obama and installed his transformative agenda we have already passed the point of no return. Historical comparisons to the decline of Rome and the decline of Western civilization are numerous, with the most striking and detailed being Oswald Spengler’s Decline of the West. The parallels are straightforward. Both Rome and the U.S. are republics that were founded upon the notion of civilian control of the legislative, executive, and judicial apparatus. Both were designed specifically to avoid monarchy and dictatorship of one individual and to ensure a responsibility of the elected to the people (Tom Hoffman).
In 1787, John Adams published his three-volume work, A Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America. In the opening chapter of Volume III, he predicts, with eerie precision, the why and how of how America has got so far off the Constitutional track. In brief summation of its entirety, this introductory chapter is an argument for a nation built upon a separation of powers and laws based upon unalienable individual rights, in contrast to a nation built upon a single, unchecked legislative body of representatives that could impose the will of a mob:
“Perhaps, at first, prejudice, habit, shame or fear, principle or religion, would restrain the poor from attacking the rich, and the idle from usurping on the industrious; but the time would not be long before courage and enterprise would come, and pretexts be invented by degrees, to countenance the majority in dividing all the property among them, or at least, in sharing it equally with its present possessors. Debts would be abolished first; taxes laid heavily on the rich, and not at all on the others; and at last a downright equal division of everything be demanded, and voted. What would be the consequence of this? The idle, the vicious, the intemperate would rush into the utmost extravagance of debauchery, sell and spend their share, and then demand a new division of those who purchased from them.” ~ John Adams
The question now then, is how much of what John Adams predicts has already come to pass, for we have long ago admitted and accepted as law the notion that “the right to property is not as sacred as the laws of God.” Furthermore, what might further infringements upon property rights, much less that we abolish them, mean for our culture and our country? No, the latter days of the Roman Republic were far from glittering or virtuous. Its pretentions to representative rule were thoroughly discredited in the eyes of Rome’s citizens.
There is no Julius Caesar without a corrupt incompetent self-serving Senate who have long ago ceased to represent the people and who work to their detriment for their own self interest. As in the stark reality of the Clintons, Obamas, Sharptons, Reids, Pelosis, McConnells, Boehners, Ryans … getting a headache.
“Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful, good society’ which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean: more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.” ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
And: American Caesarism
