Doug Casey on the America That Was – Now the United (Police) State of America… (“At the beginning. America was founded as a confederation of independent countries – that’s what a state is. Or was,”)
…..L: True enough. Where to begin?
Doug: At the beginning. America was founded as a confederation of independent countries – that’s what a state is. Or was, in our language. The original United States of America was a confederation of countries that banded together for protection against larger and more powerful countries they feared might be hostile. This is not a disputed interpretation of history, but as solid a fact as the study of history produces – and yet a largely neglected one.
L: We did cover this ground briefly in our conversations on the Civil War and the Constitution.
Doug: So we did… the short version being that the US Constitution was essentially a coup; the delegates to what we now call the Constitutional Convention were not empowered to replace the existing government – only to improve upon the Articles of Confederation between the then-independent states.
The framers of the Constitution drafted it with the notion of a national government already in place, but calmed fears of loss of state sovereignty by calling the new government the “United States of America” – a verbal sleight of hand that worked for over half a century.
Then the southern states decided to exercise what these words imply; their right to leave the union. While slavery was and is a wholesale criminal activity I object to in every way possible, the southern states did have the right to secede, both legally and ethically. But the question was settled by force, not reason, and the wrong side won.
L: Another coup?

Obama, who is left-handed, made the sign of the cross with his left hand, which out of respect for the centuries-long Christian practice, no one ever does.
Obama’s left-handed sign of the cross was made over a gobbling turkey during the National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation Ceremony, that takes place at the White House every year shortly before Thanksgiving, having been resurrected by George H.W. Bush in 1989……….

Alex covers the storm of the century, Hurricane Sandy, as it moves ominously toward the east coast.
On this Thanksgiving Eve, I am reminded of how blessed I have been to be able to rub shoulders with many of the political and religious giants of the Twentieth (and now Twenty-First) Century. During the past 30-plus years, I have been allowed to get to know a good many of the men and women that would have to be regarded as giants in the fields of religion and politics.
If you’re a thief, there are a couple of warning signs that you should watch out for. A dog bowl and a leash in the front yard would tip you off that you’re probably going to get bitten. A sign that reads, “Trespassers will be shot!” is pretty self-explanatory.
The home of 77-year-old Lloyd McCarty is similarly filled with warning signs.
As you can imagine, thousands of readers respond to my commentaries because they can see this immigration onslaught affecting their own communities. They see its effects in their stores with shop lifting and homes with burglaries, their schools with dramatic flunk out rates and violence, hospitals with anchor babies by the tens of thousands. They see churches turning from English to…

In a recent column, I referred to this excellent presentation: Can The United States Constitution Destroy Itself? Anyone who has taken the time to read and listen to the words of Muslim clerics and the Muslim Brotherhood fully and clearly understand the number one goal is to take over these united States of America and replace the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights with the sickness called Islam.
The web site highlighted above gives you the documents to back up what millions of Americans know and are fighting against. I also covered a great deal in this column.
Not only are more Americans coming to understand Islam is not a religion, they are coming out and saying what many of us have for years: The Islamic Movement in this country is sedition.
Why Islam Should NOT Be Protected Under the US Constitution

But even in the event the federal government were somehow curbed drastically, by secession, civil action, whatever, think ye not the state, county, city, etc, governments even as homeowner associations have done,(now thoroughly “indoctrinated” socialists)—will not, the people themselves as well as government servants, politicians, etc. will they not quickly take up the slack????
