It's a Day Coming With a Dare Thing

Dear America,

"We must be ready 
to dare all for our country.  
For history does not long entrust 
the care of freedom
 to the weak or the timid."   
Dwight D. Eisenhower

so...just to be perfectly clear as to where we begin the day...
the Senate MUST hold tight to the expressed civic duty and lawful responsibility of refraining this wanton administration from total destruction of our Republic.

It's called the Separation of Powers.

Drawing support from one of the best books ever, The 5000 Year Leap -- we can thank a Greek for this function, a cornerstone of a government built for the people, with freedom and liberty for all.

Of course, he lived in the days before Christ; what the hell could he really know, right?  Well, going for a quick summation here -- we should all be amazed with what this Greek, Polybius, observed in the days of the Roman Republic, and the critical thought process that ensued, in the evaluation of governance in the day... from monarchies, to aristocracies, to democracies...all of it.

Polybius realized the inherent shortcomings, and thus duly noted and explained in The Leap by W. Cleon Skousen,  "none of these systems, when allowed to govern, provided equality, prosperity, justice, or domestic tranquility for the whole society."

And Skousen then shares a quote from William Ebenstein, who wrote Great Political Thinkers:

"Even more keenly than Aristotle, he [Polybius] was aware that each form carried within itself the seed of its own degeneration, if it were allowed to operate without checks and balances provided by opposing principles.  Monarchy could easily become tyranny, aristocracy sink into oligarchy [oppressive government by a few rich families], and democracy turn into mob rule of force and violence."

Well these splendid ideas passed away nearly the same day Polybius died.

We had to wait a rather long time for the rebirth of such wisdom; and finally, in the 1700's, came a Frenchman -- the Baron Charles de Montesquieu.  According to history, he spent twenty years writing The Spirit of Laws.

Here's  something to reign supreme in the hearts and minds of free people everywhere:

"When the legislative and executive  powers are united in the same person, or in the same body of magistrates, there can be no liberty; because apprehensions may arise, lest the same monarch OR senate [legislature] should enact tyrannical laws, to execute them in a tyrannical manner."

"Again, there is no liberty, if the judiciary power be not separated from the legislative and executive.  Were it joined with the legislative, the life and liberty of the subject would be exposed to arbitrary control, for the judge would then be the legislator.  Were it joined to the executive power, the judge might behave with violence and oppression."
And now to skip a few pages from The Leap and get right to the point of who we, in America, can thank for this thing called Separation of Powers:  JOHN ADAMS.

And he nearly stood alone on this one, believe it or not.

He was the first to bring Separation of Powers to his state of Massachusetts; and in turn, the federal government came along thereafter, almost begrudgingly.  And this is the perfect moment for the reprisal of the Adam's quote little old gthing used a few days ago, however now to place it in full and proper context.  This is from a letter he wrote to his wife:

"The science of government is my duty to study, more than all other sciences; the arts of legislation and administration and negotiation ought to take [the] place of, indeed to exclude, in a manner, all other arts.  I must study politics and war, that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.  My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history and naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain."

How our U.S. Supreme Court -- the highest court of the land -- has become a political football is beyond comprehension, let alone any sort of justification.  It's tarnish being the unconscionable fraud against freedom and liberty for all, allowing for the political sway to shape and shift real law by the intentions driven by whatever hidden agenda of the political class.  It's a travesty of the Rule of Law, a transgression of the highest order.

John Adams was a prophet; for look at us now -- in comparison of the generations which followed him -- clearly today, the masses have grown weary of any actual duty to country, lazy of any inherent concern to understand their own responsibility that comes with a fully functioning Separation of Powers, and designed, all together,  to protect a free people under the law; indeed, having reaped, unwarranted mind you,  the rewards of the generations who have come before, and fought in wars, and fought within the bowels of the capital, and have fought on the streets of the free market, just to create this prosperous, rather easy, breezy, beautiful life and life style that is simply off the charts! There is nothing like us on earth -- these United States of America!

This wealth that lives and breathes all around us in the every day --  it seems that we have become anesthetized as to a certain and profound truth as to how it was all made, over time, and how it is all intended, with good reason and critical thought, to work.  America's future is, and always will be, fully dependent upon daring souls,  brave men and women, of all colors, of all religions, to cling more to the Rule of Law, then the whims of man. 

But, again, just look at us now; with the Left declaring it is their right under the law to place a Left-brain advocate "of the law" on the Supreme Court, to replace Justice Antonin Scalia [as if anyone else could do]; and in reply -- with about nine months before election day -- the right, the Senate majority, is insisting upon patience, with every intention to leave the spot vacant until the next president is elected.  [see political football details, here]

looking around...it's almost as if it's too late... 

For this generation of small minds -- complete with a fresh, however limited and abhorrent, liberal education of the last forty years --   is glued to their  iPhones, stuck on social networks in anti-social behavior, and being free to feel entitled for everything, from free healthcare to free college... so that they can get that degree in gender studies or literature or philosophy upon the virtues of the likes of John Adams, just so that when they finish, they can graduate and do nothing with that useless degree and most likely end up drinking coffee and painting and blogging and playing music on their brand new Beats earphones all the live long day....ingrates.

We inherited the wealth of progress, and totally undeserving given our lack of respect from which it flows.  And yes, that is in terms of both our general lack of reverence to our Creator, as well as to the natural awe we should all hold dear when it comes to our founders and the true intentions back behind every decision, every design, every article, every sentiment within our founding documents and the one essential element that makes it all work: the Separation of Powers.

It is a shame, really.  

For here we are, arguing about which side gets to replace, essentially, the indispensable -- the rare, the sacred, the uncommon man...... a judge who actually stood for the Law of the Land, and sat on the bench defending our Constitution,  without apologies, without wavering, tirelessly fighting for the Law from the one, true perspective of it's original intentions. The influence of any administration should have NO EFFECT on the law.

But here we are --  in the midst of replacing a brilliant, self-less, legal mind, and we mock the entire process by bickering over which political side gets the win?

What has happened to us?

 Isn't anything sacred anymore?

If we cannot entrust the bench -- the Supreme Bench, that is -- to protect the Law, then really, what's left?  Who can the people trust, if we can no longer trust a court of law to protect the law itself?

The thing is -- Obama has placed two liberal advocates on the bench during his administration; with only nine months before we elect an entirely new president to lead the way, it would be prudent to wait.  And surely, all of the candidates vying for a chance to bring a new direction, new solutions, to the country, would hope to have this once in a lifetime opportunity to play a part in placing a Supreme Court judge.  Obama has done enough. And besides --

"The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice," 
so says Senator Leader Mitch McConnell.  [and even though i cannot stand this guy, I agree with this wholeheartedly].

For we can be assured of one thing come November....

Come November we will know, with all hands on deck, which way this country intends to go.

Come November, the unknowns will be made known,  and we will see just how many of us DARE to act to the level that making history demands...

...for history does not long entrust 
the care of freedom to the weak or the timid.

Make it a Good Day, G
