The True Nightmare This Halloween

Jack-o'-Lantern_2003-10-31The true ghoulish horror, the true nightmare, this Halloween isn’t Miley Cyrus’s latest escapade or the newest gore-fest slasher film it is a statement of fact; we have become unmoored from our nations foundation, the Constitution.

Because our nation is disconnected from the Constitution we are as a result living in a country that is more reminiscent of a low-budget third-rate direct to DVD film than it is the greatest nation to have ever graced the Earth.

The assaults and usurpations of the Constitution are coming fast and furious.  There is the Chuck Schumer lead effort by Senate Democrats to take away congresses Article I power over the issuance of debt and give it to the Executive branch.

There is President Obama and then Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano’s skirting of the separations of power by unilaterally changing our nations immigration laws so a wide swath of illegal immigrants won’t have to face deportation.

Of course there are the myriad of problems with Obamacare ranging from the HHS abortifacient mandate to President Obama rewriting the law at will to Chief Justice John Roberts ludicrous ruling upholding the law on the basis that it’s a tax.

This on top of the almost complete deletion from society of the ninth and tenth amendments.

The nearly total disregard that ours is supposed to be a federal government that is limited in scope and power.

And the nearly daily attempts to erase the second amendment.

Due to all of these, and more, steps we have and are taking away from the Constitution we and future generations now find ourselves saddled with $17 trillion in national debt, $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities for entitlement programs, chronically high unemployment, a massive increase in the number of people on welfare programs, and an economy that has been stuck in a five year long malaise that shows no signs of ending anytime soon.

We are on a fast paced march from a free and vibrant society into the dark depths of tyranny.

What makes all of this even worse is the fact that many of those who should be standing up and trying to stop this disintegration of our constitutional republic are instead sitting on their thumbs and remaining deathly silent or worse aiding in our decline into a soft and one day hard tyranny.

But fear not there is hope, there is an end to this nightmare, there is a way to bring our nation back from the brink and back into the shore footing of our founding.

That hope is called the Tea Party and the men and woman across this country who are(and will) embrace if not the particulars at least the concept of Mark Levin’s Liberty Amendments.
