The Ruling Class and the US Constitution

Are you a student of World History? You should be. It gives you a great perspective on what's going on today.

Look back in time to before the 1770-1780's. Prior to that time, regular people had few rights. Land was controlled by pharaohs, emperors, kings, queens, dukes and dictators.

You lived on their land at their pleasure. You did what they said or you paid the price. Some of them were kind, some were despots.

These rulers all had one thing in common. They had a ruling class of people under them that allowed them to stay in power. It was impossible for a ruler to rule thousands by him / herself.

To keep the ruling class happy, the ruler would shower gifts and benefits onto them. This is simple reciprocity. If you were lucky enough to be in the ruling class, you got all sorts of goodies.

Land grants were one of these things. Look back at the late 1600's and early 1700's here in the USA. The king of England, to reward those that kept him in power, gave away large tracts of land to his buddies.

These members of the ruling class would then sell off tracts of the massive land grants to cash in.

How does this relate to what's happening today? I maintain that ALL of the US Presidents are guilty of feathering the nests of their buddies that got them into office.

It's the same mechanics that have happened all along. It's all about reciprocity.

The campaign donors get guaranteed loans. Look at the Solyndra scandal. Look at all the *green energy* projects. Do you REALLY think that all those horrific windmills you see are for our benefit? No way. Those are payoffs to the people that put the leaders in power.

My point is that none of this is new and that the only difference now is that the wealthy ruling class here in the USA are actively trying to turn back the hands of time.

They don't like all the rights we were granted in the US Constitution. They're working hard each day to dismantle the US Constitution because they want you and I to have to ask their permission to do anything and everything.

Don't believe me?

Then explain this. When was the last time you read a story about thousands of laws being repealed? You don't because it doesn't happen.

EACH TIME A LOCAL, STATE OR FEDERAL LEGISLATOR PASSES A LAW MORE OF YOUR RIGHTS ARE TAKEN AWAY.

Each time a new law is passed, you lose more of your freedom. That's a fact.

Each time a new regulation is written by an invisible unelected bureaucrat, you lose MORE of your freedom. That's a fact.

When will you finally throw a brick through a government office window during a protest?

My guess is when you finally have NOTHING ELSE to lose.

You need to get up off the couch and do something before you lose another one of your rights.

You need to become a true activist.

Posting things on Facebook doesn't count. Attending a local tea party meeting doesn't make you an activist.

You need to go out and engage other people. You need to go out and spread the facts. You need to get ACTIVE.

If you don't, I guarantee you that you or your children will become a REPEAT of history. The US Constitution will lie shredded under the rotunda of the US Capital while the Ruling Class dances on top of it.

Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

You are so right about everything! Most people have blinders on sadly... I have no trust in our administration (so very cooked and get away with it!) they are the very worst we have ever had. Let’s just hope we live long enough to get them out of office, but I have said over and over I did not vote for him the first time and certainly not the second time! I only wish the ones that did could suffer his wrath; such as doctors, medicine for helping older people. We are all going to get there eventually if we are not there already and the length we can stay in a hospital and the care we receive and all of congress and such should have the same insurance we have NO MORE NO LESS and also the presidents too, they put their pants on one leg at a time too!!! We should all be equal as we are in the eyes of God! Where has our nation gone?...

Keep posting your comments, Tim. You reactivate our deadened , numbed minds.

Tim,
Thanks for the Fire Pit blast. You are so right!
It is alarming how the media is not reporting on what is happening in the US Senate this week. The fact that 49 Democrats proposed amending the First Amendment to control and diminish free speech and give them power to censor should be front page news and all over the TV and radio broadcasts. If this were passed, you would not have the freedom to write this post and I would not be able to comment. I watched Senator Cruz' amazing address in the Senate that was given yesterday and I recommend everyone watch it to the end. It is a bit lengthy but riveting. http://www.tpnn.com/2014/09/10/epic-speech-ted-cruz-vs-49-senate-democrats-who-voted-to-repeal-the-first-amendment/

Hi Tim, ................ I agree that our collective illustrious leaders are on the whole a bunch of crooks. It is not just the US. The lies and deceit coming from our leaders here in Australia is also of biblical proportions.

Most of them can't lie straight in bed.

And this goes from the local city level, up through the state level, and is especially bad at the Federal level.

The lies and crap that emanate from the international political arena is also breathtaking in its scale.

So it isn't just the US, it is pretty much everywhere, and much of it is coordinated. You couldn't possibly have such things going on without collaboration. Mere dysfunctionality doesn't explain it.

Regards

Russell Morris. Australia.

Nice article. I goes to prove an old saying.

This is also how the Railroads were built. The Government gave millions of acres of land to the RR “Financier”, which they sold to finance the RR. I worked as an Abstractor and we were required to trace the land back to “Patent”, or the original owner... The Government, then the RR.
Of course the “ Financier” became enormously and filthy rich!

OK, I don't consider myself GREEN, I conserved energy and recycled long before Al Gore or any tree hugger ever opend their mouths. Now what does the wind generators have to do with friends of some politician? I don't support any Democat, and very few Republicians. There is a Wind Generator company who is in our county right now doing a wind study to see where they can place one that will be beneficial to them and the land owner. I hope to get one and then Detroit Edison will have to pay me for the electricity that is fed back into their grid. I like that idea.

As for this lying president, his speech last night made him sound almost like he really cared about this great country. After wathching "13 Hours at Benghazi - The inside story" with Bret Baier. This President and his henchmen should all be tried for TREASON.

Donald Cramer on September 11, 2014 11:03 AM

In my opinion, you are correct. I only hope we will have a country left after Obama's second term is finished. Our system was never meant to have career politicians but look what we have today. Many have 20 to 30 years in office. Many had no money when first elected and are now multi-millionaires. Where did they get this money? Instead of doing what is right for America their policies are "How do I get reelected" and "Where is my next million coming from"?. Most of them have no cares about what is happening to our once great country, only for themselves or their party. We should cut the house of representative to one half of the current 435 to what it was before FDR doubled it. Vote all current politicos out and start from scratch with severe term limitations (i.e.) no more than two terms ever, no health insurance other than what their constituents have, no retirement except SSA as their voters have, etc. No special privileges at all. Good thing for these politicos that I do not run this country. It would be, do your job properly or go home.

Recently a California bureaucrat - a department of weights and measures guy, went after Lowe's because the in store signage called a 2X4, a 2X4 and not a 1 1/2" X 3 1/2" stick of lumber. They claimed this "misrepresentation" confused and misled the customers. The end result was a $1.6 million $$$ fine to Lowe's. No kidding, this is true. Another example of a faceless body doing what they do, another transfer of money from our pockets to the "ruling class".

I fear the pendulum has already reached its apex and soon the chaff will be scattered. I agree as Jefferson said, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." The armed infrastructure is stacked against liberty and it will, I fear, be a terrible struggle and will result in an invasion by an outside force. Be aware and form your allegiances now.
We will vote in this election and the next but I fear the hand that counts the ballots is evil and most voters are simply extremely unwise. Elections have become high school student council elections for the most popular. I am not racist or anti-feminist but I think the same crowd that elected "the first black president" can't wait to elect the "first woman president." Experience, education and dogma be damned. What a dark cloud am I? I continue to speak but fear it is words lost in the wind.

I have made comments for a long time to people who are on myu E mail list I know people who don't watch TV news,read a newspaper, or listen to radio news. There are so many who don't have a clue about what district they are in here in NH. Some don't know who their representatives are.
If these people have no idea what is going on, This white House looks pretty good!!

Bob Neveux on September 11, 2014 3:58 PM

Tim, I agree with you 100 %......you run for president and I will be the first person to vote for you.......yep........sure will :)

The ruling class is at work in Washington State. There will be 'competing' initiatives on the ballot in November, 2014. I-594 is brought by the ruling class, with funding provided by billionaires Gates, Balmer, Hanauer, and Bloomberg. Info is at: http://wagunresponsibility.org/about-594/
The other seeks to maintain the status quo, and is funded by more 'common folk. Info is at: http://wagunrights.org/
The current regime in Washington, DC has unintentionally been been the best gun sales people in history. I look forward to your and your readers thoughts 'around the fire'.

Wonder how many people know that the nightly news that they lap up every night is 100% scripted BS and brought to you by well paid actors . Everyone's talking about the new Bogey Man - ISIS - who by the way our government - trained , armed , and are now being directed & used to further the agenda of the Elite.

Learn to fly a Boeing 747 in 6 weeks , while partying your arse off & then fly that baby in such a manner that decorated pilots with 30 years of flting say -"holy crap how did they do that" - well truth is they didn't, remotes and computer programs flew them planes

Google false flags - google the USS Liberty
and guess what the powers to be - don't care if you have figured out their grand scheme. Our media , our government is totally owned by Israel. Nobody gets elected in DC unless they have the blessing of Aipac - Nobody -

Sonny on September 11, 2014 8:33 PM

Good to see you are back with us. I pray that people will get active and take action to stop the shedding of our Constitution. Before my husband became a victim of Alzheimer's, he was so concerned about our nation and its freedom.He lost his battle in early August, and now I will devote more time to helping save our nation. He would want me to do this!
