Jim R. Schwiesow — That Horse is Already Dead
THAT HORSE IS DEAD
…..I continue to hear the interminable and irksome braying that the nation will be saved by men from a rapidly approaching collapse and that the Constitution will be restored to the state of being created by the founding fathers.
I am pounded with this wearisome babble every minute of every day and it grates on the nerves like a screech of nails across a blackboard.
People that horse is already dead and has been for a century and a half; the Constitution was spiked through the heart by the uncompromising Hamiltonian enemies of federalism, interred by Abraham Lincoln amid the killing grounds of the civil war, and settled in the grave by the dirt poured upon it by a long succession of dimwitted political centralists. You are now, and always have been, subject to totalitarian control.
THE KILLING OF THE CONSTITUTION
If you do not know James Madison as the father of the U.S. Constitution you should…at the birth of the nation it was his conceptions in regard to an ascendency of personal liberties and a sovereignty of the people that prevailed against all arguments for a monarchy or a totalitarian central government. No one had a greater role in shaping American Constitutional theory and in framing the particulars of representative government than James Madison.
I note that today Madison is greatly ignored. And Thomas Jefferson, Madison’s most erudite ally in the quest for a true and representative Republic, is currently the victim of the historical revisionists – of both the liberal progressive and American neo conservative stripe – who deify despotic tyrants such as Abraham Lincoln and objurgate genuine patriots such as Thomas Jefferson and others.
The greatest enemy of a true constitutional government among the fledgling colonialists was Alexander Hamilton. It was his ideas in regard to an all powerful and encompassing centralized government that were later seized upon by Abraham Lincoln in his never-ending quest for totalitarianism. And this to be able to better serve the industrialists that feathered his nest.
The characterization of this ignoble despot as a poor rail splitter who educated himself by scribbling notes upon a slate is fictional rubbish. He was in fact a slick and wealthy corporate lawyer of considerable guile, which he readily employed in behalf of his equally guileful industrial clients.
The federation and the constitution upon which it rested stood in the way of his questionable legal maneuvers in behalf of his corporate and industrial buddies. The act of constituting a political unity out of a number of separate states so that each member retained the management of its internal affairs had to be nullified, and Lincoln was the man to accomplish that job.
Lincoln’s centralist hero Alexander Hamilton was a brash and bold foe of state’s rights and of the people’s sovereignty. He plunged ahead to undo the Constitution in hardihood until Aaron Burr turned out his lights for good. And a fledgling nation grieved, especially the monarchists of the original colonies.
Abraham Lincoln had the derring-do and complete lack of integrity to seize upon the ruse of slavery, and with bloody intensity and a complete lack of remorse brought to fruition Hamilton’s dream of absolutism. This unpitying and ruthless clod murdered six hundred twenty-five thousand hapless souls in the process. And then John Wilkes Booth turned out his lights, but alas for the republic and those six hundred twenty-five thousand souls it was five years too late. And the nation grieved.

So it was that less than a hundred years from its birth that the Republic died, murdered by a despot no less ruthless than a Joseph Stalin or an Adolph Hitler, and no one grieved. The death of this Republic must be laid at the feet of greedy and grasping predatory industrialists and the immoral and corrupt politicians who served their inimical interests…..
