The Price To Lose Our Constitution – The Blind Leading the Blind
Written by Thomas Albright from Lewiston, Tx, A research writer about our US Constitution, has written many books on this important topic.
Numerous violations of our Constitution started with
Jefferson attacking Washington in 4 voices (violating Amendment 9);
next was Jefferson’s failure to get a constitutional amendment to
justify the Louisiana Purchase of 1803 that led to further continental and
foreign land grabs.
A noted history expert declared that “wars start
with who caused the First Shot – Not by who fired
it”. (It was The American War of 1861 between two
sovereign nations.) Note – World War II started with Pearl
Harbor after President Franklin Roosevelt shut off our supplying 85%
of the petroleum products to Japan, an island nation
having no such resources.
Forward to The Gulf War, our only constitutional
one, in which our developed petroleum assets for
Common Defense in the Middle East were shut off.
The Great Depression ended only in the early 1950s with
the advent of Installment Purchasing – Buy Now – Pay Later. Also, war had
proved good for the economy – witness World War II.
President Truman started the unconstitutional Korean war
with a public clamor “If we don’t stop them now - we
will never stop them. ” There was no threat to us in any
way. The truth was that the Chinese Communists could only go another
50 miles before encountering the open seas.
The Truman Legacy lives on.
The U. S. Congress passed a law in 1951 to the extent
that the petroleum companies could not sell oil for more than $3.00 per
barrel. Enter the exodus of the companies to the Middle East. (I
worked In the San Juan Basin of New Mexico in petroleum
exploration with Jack Yaka who went to work there at that
time.)An interim action was the setting of fire to all of the
oil wells in Kuwait to precipitate the Persian Gulf War. (This
was the nation’s only constitutional war – to have oil to Provide for
the common Defence.)
The President Lyndon Johnson – Senator Ted Kennedy
Immigration Act of 1965 virtually ended the immigration of white
people. Also, education and immigration policies permitted the entry
and education of Middle East immigrants who were paid to use a
machine to learn to fly aircraft only at cruse altitudes with
no takeoffs or landings. They never got in any airplanes.
Please consider the following most tragic factors.
Enter these students performing the 9-11
Tragedy. Next, enter our involvement in the Middle East. First
was the effort to eliminate Saddam Hussein. Next, how many
nations have we sent our young military to purely foreign
entanglements? This swelled the national debt to our descendants.
What is the stated ”wars for national interest”, as
compared to our constitutionally required “wars for common
defense”. (The states of Hawaii
and Alaska seemingly did not qualify on statehood – but vaguely
may do so now.)
The nation apparently considers the vastly enveloping
Middle East Wars as a “pay-back for 9-11″. Is that the real
reason? The reader is invited to apply
some thought as to whether the present
wars are, in reality, a “payback” or did we “bring it
Did the government sacrifice thousands of military
deaths and thousands with maimed bodies to “Protect our
National Interest” rather than to constitutionally provide for
the common defense? Are we playing games with foreign
wars? What about a burgeoning national debt being left to
our descendants? Is our Constitution merely a sham?
These valid questions are assigned to the
reader to answer. A correct and serious conclusion is that our otherwise
“endless, destiny” Constitution is, in reality, the nation’s
soul. The cure for the nation’s soul will be in the next writing!
