Points May Be Good For Debate - But Debates Never Solved Problems of Reality

In your generosity of agreement, I am compelled to agree as well that the attempt to rescue America from the current Chief Administrative Executive's blatant exercise of unconstitutional actions to reshape America to his liking is a hard dilemma to contemplate. It took a long time and a lot of carefully planned systemic changes to get to the place this country is in; and thus it is a hard task to be enjoined to extricate what was once the best land of opportunity from its downgrade to its political excesses.

Like you, and I suspect more than the Republican Party is willing to admit to, that the degrading of the party to the excesses of government (it is hard sometimes to differentiate the institutional mentality of the left of center from the right) that this country is plagued with-and from a religious perspective, plague as a definition is just about right, is going to be extremely hard to renegotiate, let alone eliminate. The means to return America should be obvious-but the debating seems to be missing that very important element-the courage for the right resolve.

Now, how does that translate into a plan to extricate this country from the stranglehold the current political mentality has on American politics? Quite frankly, as it has been said in a different frame of reference, the first part of the solution is knowing the problem-and that's the problem-too many in the institutional politicking business do not understand the problem; or are too entrenched to know how to get out of it.

To be sure, the current direction of government is a fatal course in direct opposition to the original intent of the founding agents; that their founding ideology has been educated away by creating a vacuum of knowledge leading to ignorance of the facts or the facts have been obfuscated by an elitist ideology that is intent in subjugating the American population to a globalist agenda. To that extent, GATT and NAFTA of the last millennium were set up as stepping stones and newer treaties are in the offing to further that process. The door is closing fast that will allow a peaceful return to what was once the guiding principles of the American citizen's freedoms and liberties.

If we are to gain a sense of who is going to bring the ship of state around, these are the items of rhetoric that need articulating: who's going to do that? One perspective is that even before the November choices, a serious look at abrogating the institutional obstacles such as elected representation not meeting the challenges to our American way of life according to the Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution are in order, necessitating recalling and abolishing immediately the positions of those who have left the ideals of the Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution behind to further an apparent ulterior agenda of the above mentioned subjugation of America. That is the very real threat.

Now while many have called for a new infusion of political talent to try developing a stronger representation of the founding ideals, the strongest offerings are in the category of not being sufficiently developed for the fight that is in the making. So therein lies the conundrum: what/who is it going to take; and will it be in time? If we wait until November to find out, it may be too late to take advantage of the choices we have now. And that is the problem that is staring America in the face; a problem of not facing the realities of our dilemma and therefore never being able to do anything about them in time.
