On the day following the Statue of Liberty going dark for several hours a story was released on WikiLeaks detailing some of the capabilities of the government to spy on its citizens. It was a powerful symbol of how the flame of liberty is being slowly extinguished and swallowed up by the dark forces of tyranny spreading across our land. The most powerful symbol however of this unprecedented occurrence was that although the statue went dark her crown and torch still shone bright for the entire world to see. This symbolism of the flame of liberty still shining in the growing darkness should be seen as a strong message from our Creator that liberty will not perish from this land.

Clearly the American people have entirely missed the most important point of the WikiLeaks story. The biggest issue here is that the government has admitted that they have the ability to spy on us through our phones and television sets whether they are on or off. They have admitted to this which any sensible person would have to conclude that if they have admitted to that then they surely have even greater capabilities that as of yet have not been publicized. Yet the media and our government try to spin the narrative of this story to how our national security was being weakened when in all actuality it is our liberties which in fact are in peril.

Those of you who believe the CIA statement that they don’t use this capability against American citizens are naive at best and foolish or living in your own fantasy world at worst. The fact that the government is able to spin this story as an outrage because this was leaked to the American people instead of the people being outraged at this abuse of government power and usurpation of our unalienable right to privacy is incredulous and quite saddening. Our founding fathers would be disgusted at how we have lost the sense of importance and value of liberty.

The state of our unalienable rights is under attack and in great peril. The apparatus this government has put in place to control the American people while telling us it is in our national security interests while usurping our liberties is appalling and in need of change. They are using this to watch US not terrorists or threats to our republic. This is being used by the globalists to undermine liberty loving Americans everywhere who still have the courage to embrace our timeless founding values and principles and have the courage to speak out against it.

It is time to inundate our representatives with calls, emails and visits to their offices demanding accountability and the end of the police state that America has become. It is time for the American people to rise up united in the fight for liberty and demand that the government end the illegal surveillance that has been in place since shortly after the 9/11 attacks. The power that the government has amassed in its self declared fight against terrorism is nothing but a ruse to lull the American people into yet another level of dependency on a government that has grown increasingly arrogant and abusive. It is time for the government to change its ways or be changed for people who will honor their oath to defend and protect the constitution of the United States from enemies both foreign and domestic.

Sadly, today the greatest threat to American liberty isn’t some foreign terrorists or homegrown terrorists inspired by their evil ideology but the very government supposedly entrusted to protect us. It is time to take apart the entangled web of treasonous traitors and clean house in the government of people who think that the promise and false facade of security gives them the right to usurp our unalienable rights. Anyone who works in the government sector who is working to impose their tyranny upon us must be removed from their position by any means necessary.

The Price Of Liberty

Posted in Declaration of Independence, Liberty, Tyranny, Unalienable Rights with tags , , , on February 28, 2017 by authorcarloscardoso

quote-from-time-thomas-jefferson

The American War of Independence was revolutionary in the course of history but was not a revolution. The war did not overthrow a ruler or a government. It did however set a group of people with a unique perspective on the history of Humanity to set an unprecedented course. They were the first to take their faith in the concept that the Creator intended for men to choose their own course and not be ruled by kings and pursue liberty. They believed that no man or system of government could rightfully infringe upon individual liberty. They realized that God’s greatest gift to Mankind was free will, the essence of liberty. Therefore they rebelled not to win freedom for they were as free as any men had been no they fought for something much more precious, liberty.

The price of liberty was very high because just like anything of true value it comes at great cost. The Tree of Liberty needed much watering unfortunately with the blood of patriots as well as tyrants. It has always been that way because no matter how righteous the cause of liberty may be, evil will always rise up with the goal of imposing tyranny and enslaving Humanity. Their cause was just and against all odds with the help of Divine Providence they succeeded. The war was won and the American colonies set forth to live in peace and pursue their rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as written in the Declaration of independence, the single greatest political document the world has ever known.

Liberty however has never been the normal state of affairs for Humanity. Servitude and tyranny, despotism and cruelty has for the ages been the norm. This precious flame of liberty has stood out against the darkness of the evil that lurks in the hearts of men whose greed knows no bounds. That is what has made America a shining example that has ushered in an incredible era of prosperity, innovation and progress. Liberty has unleashed the Human spirit to heights unimaginable. The progress the world has witnessed in the past two centuries is truly incredible. We’ve gone from living to survive to escaping the bonds of our own planet. We’ve seen the entire world transformed to a place where we are all now connected and can communicate instantaneously across the globe.

However tyranny has never been eradicated and still much of Mankind has not been freed to experience the beauty of true liberty. The sad truth is that as much as the flame of American liberty has been a shining symbol of hope to much of Humanity to others it has been the antithesis of their worldview. It has been a challenge to the historical order of things and as such has been the target of those who believe that we do not deserve the right to choose our own path. These are the statists, the elitists and globalist tyrants who seek to extinguish the flame of liberty and plunge humanity back into darkness. They wish to control us for their own selfish reasons and seek total world domination.

Sadly the enemies of liberty are no longer just tyrants abroad who seek to end our way of life. They have come to realize that America cannot be defeated from the outside so they have infiltrated our government and seek to destroy us from within. These evil forces live in the shadows and operate in darkness. They have worked diligently to destroy the foundations that we were built upon. They have taken control of our media, our education system, our family and religious values to undermine the source of our great strength. They have grown so powerful that they now have become emboldened as the American people have lost their way and their tyranny grows. They have fooled the people into willingly surrendering their liberties for the promise of security when in fact all they are doing is consolidating their grip on power so they can control us.

They have used every means at their disposal to try and divide us across every possible demographic. That’s because they realize that the power of America has always been our unity. That together we can overcome any challenge as long as we understand who we are, what it is that truly binds us and what the ultimate source of our indomitable strength is. It is the love and power that comes from our Creator when we live as He wished, in the righteous pursuit of liberty with the respect and responsibility that it requires. Now we live in a time where we must again be prepared to fight for liberty because it is slowly being taken from us.

Now is the time that tries men’s souls for liberty is under attack and the forces of darkness and tyranny are growing stronger by the day. Here in America we have God fearing liberty loving patriots being persecuted and murdered for having the audacity to spread the word of liberty. LaVoy Finicum was murdered by agents of OUR government and he is not alone. Our veterans have been mistreated, left to die and are being persecuted because they are a threat to the tyrants. They understand our history and have taken an oath to defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. It is time that we turn to God and seek His blessing that we may retake our land from the usurpers.

The Tree of Liberty once more needs watering with the blood of patriots and tyrants. The time of reckoning is close at hand. The tyrant’s powers are growing and it is up to us to resist. We must understand that our unalienable rights come from our Creator and that liberty is Humanity’s birthright and natural state of existence. It is time to turn the tide of history once and for all and rid ourselves of the globalists who seek to destroy America and impose their will upon Humanity. Wherever tyranny is allowed to exist, Humanity and liberty are diminished. Let us raise our voices and sound the alarm the tyrants are coming and we must unite to defeat them now for ourselves and our posterity. The time is now, we must stand together to ensure that liberty does not perish from the face of the Earth. We must all from the bottom of our hearts proclaim Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!

 

Government Tyranny And The Loss Of Liberty

irony

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. This one speaks volumes. This nation was conceived in liberty, that with liberty we accepted responsibility for ourselves, our actions and the outcomes of our actions and decisions. We were declaring independence and yet today we have many who have fallen into a trap. Benjamin Franklin said, ” Neither a debtor or a lender be”. Yet we have a government that understands the danger of being dependant and still celebrates the number of lost souls who have given themselves over to their control.

There is something sinister about a government that tries to control the population and tries to paint it as charitable. They hide their desire for power in a facade of charity and caring. There is nothing charitable about stealing the fruits of one’s labor to enslave their neighbors. That is the irony of the welfare state. Benjamin Franklin was truly wise because he saw not only the danger but the immorality of government programs to “help” the poor. He said, “I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”

We live in a time where our government has broken free of the chains of the constitution meant to bind it. It has used deceit to take powers unto itself and deprive us of our liberty. 46 million people are dependent on the government for their ability to eat ensuring their ability to survive. They take over our healthcare system to control our access to medical care and not only our quality of life but who lives and who dies. If you think that statement is an exaggeration then think about the revelations about the VA System and how many veterans died needlessly because they were denied timely and adequate healthcare.

Then consider the extraordinary powers they have amassed in the name of national security at the price of our right to privacy. The illegal surveillance of the American people is tyranny spreading at the loss of the right to privacy in our persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures. The militarization of our police allows them to effectively occupy our cities, trample our liberties as we witnessed in Boston and the people cheered. No wonder the tyrants are so emboldened for we have lost sight of the value, and love of liberty which our founders held so dear. Again I must point to the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin who said those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

So when the government gains power and influence over our lives and how we live our liberties are diminished. It is time to embrace liberty and the 10th Amendment. We must understand that all powers not delegated to the federal government by the constitution, nor prohibited to it by the States, are reserved to the States respectively or to the people. We have to regain those powers that have been taken from us whether it be by legislation, regulation or adjudication. Any usurpation of our liberties and unalienable rights must be resisted for it is our duty to nullify and end the tyrannical powers that our government has imposed upon us.

It is time for the power to be returned to the people, the rightful rulers of this land and for this government to be cut down to its rightful size. Here I remind the American people what Franklin said when asked what type of government we had been given at the end of the Constitutional Convention replied, “A republic if you can keep it.” It seems that we are at a point in history where we will ultimately be called upon to answer this important question. Are we willing to ensure that liberty thrives and our republic survives? We are the generation on which the responsibility to save our republic has been thrust upon. The question is are we up to the challenge?

 

The Fight For Liberty Against The Enemies Within

Posted in Liberty, Police State, Tyranny, Unalienable Rights with tags , , , , , , on February 21, 2017 by authorcarloscardoso

george-orwell-1984

The revelation of electronic surveillance of phone calls and then leaking it to reporters is clearly illegal on many levels. This leads to several questions that need answering and immediately. First by what constitutionally enumerated power does the government derive the right to monitor the phone calls of American citizens? The constitution was a contract between the States and the individual citizens of those States and the federal government. The secret FISA courts do not fall under the constitution and are therefore illegal and as such must be abolished.

The truth is that there is no accountability at the NSA and they have been spying on the American people with impunity. They are actively monitoring our internet, listening to our phone calls even though we have no ties to terrorism or foreigners. They can literally use any of our electronic devices tied to Wi-Fi anywhere in ways unimaginable to the average American. So the next question we need to ask ourselves is; are the powers that they have amassed to keep us under constant surveillance not a usurpation of our unalienable rights to privacy and who is ensuring accountability and protecting our rights?

The government has been using the pretext of fighting terrorism to try and control us since the 9/11 attacks. They have been fostering a sense of fear trying to persuade the American people to willingly surrender our liberties to protect us from foreign enemies. We have been conditioned to fear enemies from outside while the evil of tyranny has been growing inside our country. The American people need to understand that there are elements within our own government who are using this fear to justify growing their powers to abolish our liberties and impose tyranny upon us.  We cannot give in to fear, we must have faith in that we are strong enough to face the challenges of protecting ourselves. We must ask ourselves have we allowed the government to take powers beyond their scope and traded essential liberty for the façade of security?

Now they have become so emboldened that they seek to use their powers to topple the current duly elected administration and reverse the will of the American people. This is because they have been able to fool us into looking for threats from outside when the greatest threat to liberty comes from within. We have been infiltrated by globalists who seek to destroy the United States and impose tyranny upon the world. Never before in American history have we faced such a powerful and evil enemy. They hide in the shadows and pretend they don’t exist. They call patriots extremists because we understand the threat, embrace our liberties and are willing to defend them against this domestic threat. Isn’t that honestly a greater threat to our liberty and security than the remote possibility of some terrorist hijacking a plane full of Americans?

I urge the president to immediately suspend domestic spying on American citizens without ties to foreign entities. End the persecution of patriots like the Bundy’s. Review and suspend all regulations tied to the United Nations and Agenda 21. Seek out and root out all those who hide in the shadows and plot the destruction of liberty and bring them to justice. I also urge the president to be very careful because the powers that he faces are great and their tentacles run deep within our government. They are actively plotting to destroy him because he dares to try and put America first.

The previous administration sought to divide Americans and tried to finish laying the groundwork to destroy us. The globalists thought that with the inevitable election of Hillary Clinton their victory would be complete. Everything was in place, America was ripe for destruction but they never thought that defeat was a possibility. We still put our trust in God and know that with His Divine protection we will be victorious. Once again America will embrace liberty and defeat the dark, evil forces of tyranny and ensure that liberty is passed on to the next generation and does not perish from the face of the Earth. We will not allow our American experiment to fail because the fate of Humanity hangs in the balance. Their arrogance will be their undoing.

This leaves us with the question of will we allow the forces of evil to plunge Humanity back into servitude? Will we leave our children as slaves to a new world order where the flame of liberty is extinguished and tyrants rule with impunity? Or will we wake up, seize the moment, come together as Americans always have, look to Divine Providence to bless our just cause and defeat the globalist plan? The choice before us is as clear as it is stark. We must rise up and destroy the enemies within and rid ourselves of the cancer. The first thing we need to do is to weed out the traitors in the intelligence community and destroy their ability to wield their Orwellian powers and free ourselves from the secret police state we are currently living in.

I urge the President to be careful because there are many powerful international interests working together to undermine the America our founding fathers built. Their plans have been carefully laid for some time and they never anticipated someone who they couldn’t buy to betray the American people like so many presidential administrations before have. We, the American people are willing to fight to restore the constitutional republic our founding fathers entrusted to us. Beware of the intelligence community for there are enemies there who seek to destroy you and subvert the will of the American people. I urge you to look to God for protection, guidance and wisdom as you enter into this perilous journey. Never underestimate the danger you face and don’t trust the politicians on either side of the aisle for they have colluded to destroy everything patriotic Americans across this land hold dear.

The true fight for liberty is against the enemies within our government and can only be won once the American people come to realize the treachery they have perpetrated against us.

The Rise of The Police State

The recent revelations about the President in his “private conversation” with foreign heads of states along with those of the National Security Advisor shows an unprecedented rise in the wielding of unconstitutional powers by the NSA. The fact that they have been spying on patriotic Americans for years who believe in our founding principles is unconscionable but  to spy and leak information on the sitting president and members of his cabinet is unfathomable. The people have spoken and the surveillance apparatus is supposed to be there to keep the president apprised of national security threats not to indiscriminately decide who they can use their broad capabilities to intimidate or destroy.

These people who it turns out were given sweeping powers by the Obama administration on the way out to undermine the current president to advance their globalist, statist and tyrannical world view must be stopped. The American people can no longer remain silent when  the uncontrolled and unaccountable people have the audacity to try and undermine the duly elected President of the United States. If they feel they can do this  to the president then who among us is safe. Our liberties have been stolen from us and it is time for American patriots to rise up in indignation and demand that these people be held accountable for their crimes against the American people.

I urge all Americans to embrace our heritage and reconnect to the unfettered love of liberty that made America great in the first place. These cowardly agents who supposedly work on our behalf in the service of OUR federal government must be held accountable and their power to spy on us must be dismantled. Those who work in the secret FISA courts need to be held to the standards set forth in our Declaration of Independence and constitutionally protected liberties.

Our unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit have been stolen from ud and it is high time that the Patriot Act, portions of the NDAA and all other unlawful usurpations be rescinded. Furthermore it is time that the true scope and size of the trechery that’s been perpetrated on the American people in the name of national security be revealed. We must rise up and demand that our government be accountable to US, the rightful rulers of this republic.

The American people need to understand the level of treachery and treason that we have allowed to transpire in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. We have silently watched our unalienable rights to free speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of religión, rights to privacy, property, a speedy trial by a jury of our peers and even the right to life to be legislated, regulated and adjudicated away. This is not the America our founders envisioned. It is the antithisis of liberty and the rise of tyranny and an uncontrolled police state.

Whether America can be saved from the would be tyrants who scheme to control us remains to be seen. The president ran on an idea of making America great again but that will be imposible if the American people don’t understand the cornerstone and foundation of what made America great in the first place. we must put the pursuit of liberty above everything else. We as a people must grasp our destiny and reclaim our rightful place as the rulers of the government. We must understand that liberty is much more than freedom and that  if we truly embrace our liberty, then and only then can America be great again.

 

The Wisdom of Our Founding Fathers

Posted in Electoral College, Politics, Presidential Election on December 1, 2016 by authorcarloscardoso

countymaprb1024_png_cf

The founding fathers wisdom is something that all Americans should not only be proud of but be amazed by. Thomas Jefferson said, “That if we were ever to live upon each other like the cities in Europe we would be as corrupt as Europe”. He foresaw that the key to people being accountable and behaving respectively was in small communities. The reason is simple, in small communities people know each other so they care more about how they are viewed and their reputation. Their actions not only reflect on them but their families as well.

This is not meant to say that all people who live in the big cities are corrupt by any means. However, the anonymity of living hidden in a large population allows people to get lost. It’s that example of not seeing the trees because of the forest. That explains why crime rates are higher in the cities than in rural areas. People in cities unfortunately lose that personal connection so it’s easier to disrespect and infringe upon their neighbors’ liberties. Unfortunately as our country has grown big cities have sprung up in all of our states. They are wondrous modern marvels with many great attributes but they also bring problems that allows people to lose their moral foundation.

I’ve moved to a few different states due to my pursuit of happiness that is to say to build a better future for myself and my family. I’ve lived in suburban areas most of my life, have also lived in a small town where everyone actually knew everyone and now technically live in a city. The city I live in is really a suburban style of life with a small city in the center that it does bring some of the advantages of a city. I can honestly say that I miss being close to New York City and all that it had to offer but I could never live there. I can honestly say that the small town was in my opinion the ideal place to live and raise a family. Everyone looked out for one another and no one locked their doors. The children knew all the adults and vice a versa which meant that the kids knew if they did something wrong word of it would get back to their parents.

So what does this have to do with our founding fathers wisdom outside of Jefferson’s thoughts reflected in his quote? The founding fathers when they set up our presidential election system didn’t set it up as a pure democratic system where the winner of the national popular vote would become president. Instead they set up the Electoral College giving each state no matter how populated they were a voice in the election. In this manner the election would truly reflect the will of the people across the country.

This was truly incredible foresight on their part considering the times that they lived in. The country was nothing like Europe, the cities in the States were sparsely populated nothing like Europe yet they put this system in place for the future. In light of our most recent elections the wisdom of this system is undeniable. If you look at the map of the United States by county you see that the country is seriously divided from the largest cities and the rest of the country. The values and desires of the citizens of the people outside of the large metropolitan areas are in stark contrast with the cities. The only protection the people of the country not living in large cities is the Electoral College. Yet interestingly enough there are people who think that the election was stolen when the last presidential election shows the same pattern.

The presidential election results from 2012 would if looked at by the map above by county you would have thought that Mitt Romney would have won yet he didn’t. Those people crying out for changing or replacing the Electoral College because it isn’t fair may be right. Perhaps instead of Electors being chosen by state they should be allotted by county that would be a better reflection of the will of the people. Yes the founding fathers were truly amazing, the Electoral College was a brilliant idea but with more cities and their surrounding areas controlling the political landscape of our states perhaps the change we need is to change it to Electors being chosen to represent counties. Getting rid of the Electoral College would be foolish, changing it to make votes count in states with large cities by changing it to the Electors being chosen by county would be a better barometer of the will of the people.

The 2016 numbers by county are even more telling. In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond and Queens) Clinton received over 2 million more votes than Trump. Clinton won 4 of those counties, Trump won Richmond. Therefore these 5 counties alone accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country. These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles. The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.

When you have a country that comprises almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to suggest that the inhabitants of a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election. Large densely populated Democratic cities like NYC, Chicago, LA don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of the country.

The Importance of Learning From History

Posted in Declaration of Independence, Liberty, Politics, Unalienable Rights with tags , , , , , , on November 29, 2016 by authorcarloscardoso

articlesofconfederation

I have often written about the importance of understanding our history and lamented the fact that many Americans don’t understand the founding ideals and values of our American fight for liberty. True liberty and the system of governance put together once independence was won from Great Britain was the Articles of Confederation. It was a loose alliance of the free and sovereign States of the united States of America. It was a government with very limited powers and maximum individual liberties for the States and the individual.

Fast forward to 1787 and the Constitutional Convention was called to amend the original Articles of Confederation because of the inability of the congress to raise taxes due to its limited authority and need for unanimous decisions. The delegates instead of amending the Articles created a new Constitution which needed to be ratified by only 9 of the 13 States. There was much debate at the time from patriots from all the various States on the wisdom of creating a much stronger centralized federal government but it did pass and the United States of America was born.

The aim of the new government was to form a Republican form of government and the ratification was contingent on there being a Bill of Rights to protect the individual liberty that the war of independence was fought over. I would urge all Americans to do your research and listen to the arguments both for and against the forming of the new federal government. The writings of both sides prove the undeniable passion of both sides both for and against ratification of the new constitution. It also shows the incredible foresight these American patriots had in their arguments for and against this new form of governance.

Fast forward now 240 years after the ratification of the Declaration of Independence and you will see the worst fears of the anti-federalists have come to pass. The government has outgrown its powers and our liberties have been trampled. I have often used the analogy of what happened to the Roman republic to what has happened to the original intention and vision of the American republic. Ultimately the centralization of power leads to the seeking of building an empire and an expansion of power at the expense of liberty. The ultimate irony is the same tactics are used, bread and circuses to distract the people as their liberties are usurped and their government inevitably falls under the economic weight of maintaining an empire.

Now we have an opportunity to set things right, to as Benjamin Franklin said when asked what kind of government they had given us was. “A republic if you can keep it”. The key to liberty has always been and forever shall be vigilance. We must take this chance while politicians are speaking of appointing original constitutionalists as Supreme Court justices to hold them accountable. This time we must ensure that they have the Supreme Court reverse the course of the government back to its enumerated powers and at the same time that they must cut the government down to size.

It is time to dismantle the leviathan government piece by piece. The American people were promised that this administration would be our voice and restore a government for the people, of the people and by the people. That’s why it is up to us to now take over the narrative. Take control from the media and the government elites and cut down the government bureaucracy and eliminate the usurpations of our rights. It is time to remind the government that our rights are God given and therefore cannot be taken away by legislation, adjudication or executive actions. It is time that unconstitutional powers such as those granted by the Patriot Act and the NDAA be rescinded and the American people’s rightful rights be restored.

I would suggest you read the attached post for it is highly informative of the historical parallels between Ancient Rome and modern day America. I would also suggest you read or listen to the Great Debates a course on the arguments for and against ratification of our present constitution. Become aware of your history because if you don’t know where you came from you can easily be fooled into becoming something that you are not. We are meant to enjoy free will to be governed under our Creator with minimal government interference in our pursuit of happiness.

We are very far away from where we should be as a country and as individuals. Learn your past so that together we can forge our common future and reclaim our hard fought birthright to righteous liberty. Be a voice of inspiration and a source of knowledge to your fellow man. Help to enlighten your fellow man so that the spark of righteous liberty may engulf the hearts and minds of Americans into a force that spreads across our land. Then and only then when we have shown the world what living in a system of self governance is like we can lead the world through our example to evolve to the next step in humanity’s destiny. Leading to a world where liberty will lead to righteousness, personal responsibility, prosperity and good will to all Mankind.
