My Country celebrates its 236 birthday today July Fourth. Yet we are on the verge of being sent into a Marxist Socialist hellhole created by the evil Obama, the Democrat Socialist Party, ninety percent of the Republican Party, the Left, and state run media. These people are diabolical. These folks are lying through their teeth. It is all about dictating to you and me how we have to live our lives. These evil people want to make the state the Lord and God over us all. The state is the new God not the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and Jesus Christ.
The Supreme Court rulings during the last week of June drove a stake through the heart of the Constitution. We have to take our country back. Mark Levin spoke on his Tuesday July 3rd radio show about repealing the seventeenth Amendment. I agree with him. It is time we repeal the Seventeenth Amendment to the Constitution. This amendment was ratified on May 13th 1914 and signed by Williams Jennings Bryan. This amendment changed how we elect Senators. Prior to this change the State legislatures chose U.S. Senators. United States Senators are now elected by a direct vote of the people by the individual states.
The framers and founders of my country and the Constitution set it up that the Senate was to represent the states and the House was the peoples house. Led by William Jennings Bryan the populists sought to change how Senators were elected. This debate started in 1828. Constitutional Amendments to change the Constitution were proposed in 1828, 1829, and 1855. This debate came to a head in 1890 and thus changed the states relationship with the federal government. The states lost their say in how the government was run.
William Jennings Bryan argued the U.S. Senators lost touch with the people. Bryan cited corruption and electoral deadlocks.
The roots of this movement were the direct result of what happened in Montana between 1857 and 1900. The charge was corruption. The hard facts of corruption were unfounded.
The other problem perceived by the populist led by Bryan pointed to the deadlock of who was to be elected by the states to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Twenty states from the years 1891 and 1905 did not have representation.
Todd Zywicki was opposed to the idea of the direct election of U.S. Senators. He argued that this problem was the exception not the rule. For the most part the system was smooth. This problem occurred mostly in the newly created western states.
Henry Storres introduced the first constitutional amendment in 1828 to change the way U.S. Senators were chosen.
Judge Bybee wrote why the 17th amendment was bad for the states. His reason was a simple one. He stated this gradual “ slide into ignominy” (taken from Wikpedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seventeenth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution) would allow the federal government to take away more and more power away from the states and thus create a centralized government that would dictate what the states could do and could not do. This power shift would result in decreased state power to govern over their own states.
Bybee wrote this. “Politics, like nature, abhorred a vacuum, so senators felt the pressure to do something, namely enact laws. Once senators were no longer accountable to and constrained by state legislatures, the maximizing function for senators was unrestrained; senators almost always found in their own interest to procure federal legislation, even to the detriment of state control of traditional state functions.

The seeds of our destruction were sown from 1828 thru 1943. These seeds came to fruition in 1963 when the Warren Court kicked the God of the Bible out of this country. The Warren Court told the Lord we don’t need your guidance anymore we can do it ourselves. This simple yet swift act has brought this country to brink of suicide.
And this is why we find ourselves fighting for our very life.
Our founding fathers knew that man is fallible. Yes, man is basically good but when man is in total control this will lead to tyranny and dictatorial powers over the rest of us.
Man is not the answer. Religion is not the answer only God is. We must vote the evil Obama and his cohorts out of office. We have to vote for Romney and elect him president and take back control of both the House and Senate. Once this happens the real work will begin. If you think these men will do anything to change our course you are sadly mistaken. Romney, McCain, Boehner, McConnell and the rest of them are chicken shit.
Only handful of people will actually attempt to right our ship. This is why our founding fathers sought and asked the Lord God almighty for help and direction. We do have a final authority. That authority is the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham. Isaac, and Jacob, and Jesus Christ.
The first step in this process has to begin with getting the evil Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat Socialist party out of office this November.
John Adams wrote these words. Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Second President of the United States
[I]t is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.
(Source: John Adams, The Works of John Adams, Second President of the United States, Charles Francis Adams, editor (Boston: Little, Brown, 1854), Vol. IX, p. 401, to Zabdiel Adams on June 21, 1776.)
[W]e have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. . . . Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
(Source: John Adams, The Works of John Adams, Second President of the United States, Charles Francis Adams, editor (Boston: Little, Brown, and Co. 1854), Vol. IX, p. 229, October 11, 1798.)
The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If “Thou shalt not covet,” and “Thou shalt not steal,” were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society, before it can be civilized or made free.
(Source: John Adams, The Works of John Adams, Second President of the United States, Charles Francis Adams, editor (Boston: Charles C. Little and James Brown, 1851), Vol. VI, p. 9.)
Framer of the First Amendment
Our liberty depends on our education, our laws, and habits . . . it is founded on morals and religion, whose authority reigns in the heart, and on the influence all these produce on public opinion before that opinion governs rulers.
(Source: Fisher Ames, An Oration on the Sublime Virtues of General George Washington (Boston: Young & Minns, 1800), p. 23.)
Charles Carroll of Carrollton
Signer of the Declaration of Independence
Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime & pure, [and] which denounces against the wicked eternal misery, and [which] insured to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.
