NEW AMERICAN REVOLUTION
PART 1 of 3

On Thursday, March 6, 2008 Congressman Ron Paul posted a 7-minute video on his website officially ending his presidential campaign. The Republican Texan, who ran on a libertarian platform, said that while he has suspended his bid for the White House, his "campaign for freedom will continue in this new phase..." calling for a convention in Washington, DC on June 21. Without defining what it was, Dr. Paul said: "I don't mind playing a key role in this revolution, but it has to be more than a Ron Paul revolution." What we have here is the rebirth of the Republican Revolution. Only, this time around, it will be a people-orchestrated revolution where the conservative voters of America, inspired by Dr. Paul, take back their nation through the House of Representatives and the US Senate.
Ron Paul Campaign spokesman Jesse Benton confirmed on Friday, Mar. 7 that Congressman Ron Paul recognized that he would not be the GOP nominee. The "...campaign," he said, "is winding down. Dr. Paul acknowledges that he will not be the nominee but will continue to travel to address supporters and encourage grassroots activism to influence the process and return the Republican Party to its traditions of limited government and personal freedom." Yet, the Texas Congressman is still campaigning in the hopes of collecting more delegates than the 45 he currently controls, believing the more delegates he secures before the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis the better chance he has of getting a primetime slot for speechmaking at the Convention on Labor Day.
In a CNN a.m. interview on American Morning, Dr. Paul admitted his chance of getting the nomination were gone. What he is attempting to do now, he said, was put his campaign in a position to participate in writing the party platform and set the direction of the Republican Party in the future. Dr. Paul also noted that he would "...not likely support John McCain unless [McCain] changes his views—particularly on foreign policy and the war in Iraq."
Ron Paul sees the next phase of the Ron Paul Revolution as a book tour to promote "The Revolution: A Manifesto." Ron Paul now has an opportunity to win an even larger prize in a race he can win. Ron Paul's task during the 11th and 112th Congress will be to protect the Constitution of the United States and assure that the uninterrupted protection of the Bill of Rights continues—not as Congressman Ron Paul, but as Speaker of the House Ron Paul. This would make Ron Paul the third most powerful person in the United States. As House Speaker, Ron Paul can be a true and effective advocate of the people.
Ron Paul possesses one characteristic no other conservative since Ronald Reagan has been able to invoke. He was able to mobilize the soldiers in the Ron Paul Revolution and keep them focused on his dream. It is a dream of the type of liberty envisioned by the Founding Fathers and the inalienable rights that were guaranteed by the US Constitution in the Bill of Rights. That is something none of the other GOP candidates were able to do. Not Mitt Romney [R-MA] nor Fred Thompson [R-TN] nor Tom Tancredo [R-CO] nor Duncan Hunter [R-CA] nor Rudy Giuliani [R-NY]—and least of all, not GOP nominee Sen. John McCain [R-AZ]. Why? Because all of them know that major concessions to the New World Order will be the rule of the day over the next four years as willing politicians—bought and paid for by special interest groups that contributed millions of dollars in legal bribes to their campaigns—weaken America even more by allowing transnational industrialists to send even more jobs to the human capital in the emerging nations, and by further opening the floodgates to allow even more millions of illegal aliens to trample US sovereignty.
Even after McCain captured the electoral votes needed to seal the nomination, Ron Paul supporters wanted the Congressman to continue a fight already lost, hoping that at the convention in Minneapolis enough McCain delegates would jump ship to allow a floor fight to pick a nominee more acceptable to the Paulites—which, of course by extension, would be Dr. Paul. Whatever else he may be, Congressman Ron Paul is a realist. He knows he lost the battle for the White House. But in fighting that battle, he set up a mechanism that will allow him to win control of the other House and kindle a true grassroots Republican Revolution based on constitutional precepts. There are 60 million conservatives in America seeking a leader who understands that the United States was created as a nation of the people, by the people, for the people—and that nation is being systemically eroded by industrialists and bankers for the industrialists and bankers in order to recreate the world into a economic smorgasbord specifically to increase their wealth as the people are reclassified as human capital—the chattel of the global elite.
The Constitution of the United States provides the blueprint of liberty for its citizens and for those who lawfully reside within its borders. It is not a doormat at our borders for foreign globalists to wipe their feet on as they enter. Nor is it an archaic set of rules for domestic utopians to manipulate because the rule of law does not conform to their view of what the world should look like. Nor is it a "get-out-of-jail-free" card for corrupt politicians. Nor is it a piggy bank for corrupt money barons who believe their wealth entitles them to special privilege and special laws that penalize their competition while providing them with blank checks on the US Treasury a the expense of the people.
When he entered the race for the White House, Congressman Ron Paul was the 27th most powerful GOP member of the House of Representatives according to Knowlegis. What troubles the political elites most about Dr. Paul is that his political philosophy closely dovetailed with the philosophy of the Founding Fathers. That philosophy was non-interventionism. From 1787 to 1917 the United States faithfully observed that policy.
During those 130 years the United States prospered economically. But it also changed for the worse. New York surpassed London as the financial capital of the world and the era of the Jacobin robber barons was born. At the end of the Civil War the mass bribing of Congressmen and Senators began as the money barons began buying politicians like penny candy to get the laws they needed to protect them from prosecution as they stole America. During that period, from 1875 to 1895 the citizen politicians discovered just how profitable politics could be. Middle class shopkeepers came to Washington as freshmen Congressmen and retired 20 to 30 years later as members of the wealthy class. To legalize the graft they took from the money barons, Congress enacted laws to protect themselves from being charged with accepting bribes by classifying the bribes they took from the money barons as "campaign contributions."
Today the media talking heads hawk the politicians who take the most graft as the "most viable" candidates since they have been blessed by the financially powerful special interest groups, lobbyists, bankers and the industrialists who control what legislation is enrolled as well as what legislation will get out of committee and onto the floor for a vote. To the lobbyists and the special interest groups while presidents can, and usually do, veto legislation which is politically or philosophically repugnant to them, Congress is the first line of defense to stop that legislation from being passed.
The leadership in both the House and Senate are acutely aware that the President of the United States and the federal court system do not possess the power to legislate. Presidential Proclamations, Executive Orders, Presidential Decision Directives cannot be construed as law since the President of the United States and the Executive Branch of government (which he manages) lacks the right to create law under the Constitution. Likewise, the job of the judicial branch is so narrowly defined that judges—including US Supreme Court Judges—are not allowed to legislate from the bench: i.e., coupling one law with another law, with the minority opinions of justices who argue why they disagree with the majority view in high court decisions, or the laws of other nation, to essentially create new law by flipflopping the original intent of the lawmakers. The whole body of law in the United States constitutionally originates, and remains, in the Congress.
The House of Representatives has a constitutional obligation to represent "the people." Sadly, that mandate has long ago been abrogated. The members of Congress—both our representatives and those of the States (the Senate) have abrogated their constitutional responsibility and have become pawns of transnational industrialists, bankers, and merchant princes who, collectively, resemble the despots of Europe who enslaved the colonists in the New World and caused a free people to cast off the shackles of serfdom from England.
If you haven't read the Declaration of Independence lately, it should be of interest to those in governance to see what set off the patriotic rabble of that day and what caused Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin to say: "...a long train of abuses and usurpations...[designed] to reduce [the people] under absolute despotism. [In such cases] it is [the right of the people], it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new safeguards for their future security...The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over the States." It is important to note, here, that Franklin, Jefferson and Adams were talking about a foreign government that controlled the lives of the American people from a distant port. However, it is essential for our own government to turn back the pages of history and understand what that foreign government did which caused the shot "heard around the world."
That government—England—refused to consent to administer one set of laws to govern all the people, She chose instead to selectively enforce the law to benefit some people and to hamstring or punish others. That government obstructed the colonial laws regarding the naturalization of foreigners in the United States, and changed the laws concerning migration. That government obstructed justice by making judges obedient to them and abridging the laws of the colonies whenever it served the purpose of that superior government. England created a bureaucracy and sent out "hither swarms of officers to harass [the] people." England also made the colonial military independent of civilian jurisdiction, allowing them to function without the consent of that civilian authority. In addition, it depriving Americans of trials by jury; and, increasingly, transporting Americans "...beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses"—and most of all, for taxing Americans without their consent." While our central government contends that we are taxed with "our consent" since those we elect to represent us, the simple reality is when legislators are allowed to accept bribes from lobbyists for special interest groups it is not us they represent but the special interest groups. Congress has been effectively hijacked by the wealthy elite who rape America by stealing the sweat equity we invested to make this nation great.

When you examine the parallels carefully you are almost forced to conclude that this is very likely America's last chance to take back its nation or surrender to the globalists who believe world government is the gateway to Utopia. Around the corner is the complete abrogation of national sovereignty as the North American Union becomes a reality that no citizen in the United States, Canada or Mexico wants. Nor do the citizens of Central or South American want to absorbed into a hemispheric American Union in which their national identity is subverted by their more powerful northern neighbor as the regionalization of the world's economies and currencies bring the nations of the world towards the biblical world government that leads to Armageddon.
